My favorite ‘Flight of the Conchords’ songs

I first discovered “the 4th most popular folk comedy duo in New Zealand” through listening to their first studio album on repeat with a friend while we were having a long drive to a cabin trip in 2010.

I later discovered their HBO Television series, and later still, their earlier BBC radio series.


With their HBO live London concert special recently having been released, I decided to make this post, hopefully introducing yet more people to this amazingly funny band.

Here goes!



Robots (The Humans are Dead)

I have always been a big fan of science fiction, so I was pretty predisposed to liking this song.

It is also just very funny.


Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros

Rap and hip-hop are clearly not their main musical influences, but they manage to use the styles to great comedic effect in this song.


Tears of a Rapper

While they may not be rappers, don’t say it to their face.

It hurts their feelings when you say they’re not rappers!


I’m Not Crying

They’re not cying…

It’s just been raining….on their face..


The Most Beautiful Girl (In The Room)

This is an overly specific love song, and a great example of the band’s comedic stylings.


Feel Inside (and stuff like that)

This is one is quite different.

It was made for the New Zealand children’s health research charity Cure Kids, and features many well-known New Zealand singers.

Most interestingly, the lyrics of the song was made mainly by cherry-picking funny answers from the interview with various children that you can see in the middle of that video.


Frodo, Don’t Wear The Ring

Bret McKenzie is actually in the first ‘Lord of the Rings’ film, as the Elven escort Lindir Figwit, later to return in the third film in the series, and in the first Hobbit movie.

And Jemaine Clement voiced Sauron in The Lego Batman Movie!


Inner City Pressure

This series was one of the first things me and my girlfriend bonded over, as we were both big fans when we met.

That fact did a lot to smooth things over after The Comedy Song Debacle.


Issues (Think About It)

Someone needs to tackle the big issues, might as well be FotC.


You Don’t Have To Be A Prostitute

My girlfriend told me early in our relationship that I look a lot like Bret.

Nobody else has been able to see it, but I’ll take the compliment.


Carol Brown

This song is incredibly good, on both a musical and comedic level.

I did not number these, as that would have taken forever to decide upon, but this would have been near the top if I had.


Mutha Uckers

This song would have been very lewd, if not for the fact that the guys are continually censoring themselves as they are singing the song.

Very clever idea for a gag.


A Kiss is Not a Contract

…but it’s very nice.


We’re Both In Love With A Sexy Lady

I just like the beats and jokes in this very much.

I often get it as an earworm, and I don’t mind at all.


Rambling Through The Avenues Of Time

Just a short and sweet one to close us out.


I hope you have enjoyed this, and maybe found a new favorite.

If you liked it, you should check out their show, as it is amazing!

Sometimes, a normal live-action music video cannot do justice to a Ninja Sex Party song.

Thank god for animation!

NSP’s Ultimate Sandwich Recipe

ninja sex party ultimate sandwich recipe

This summer I have made a fair amount of posts featuring ‘Ninja Sex Party’ songs in anticipation of their new album ‘Cool Patrol’, so I decided that this months geeky recipe might just aswell be NSP themed.

 

This sandwich recipe is based on the explicit lyrics of the early NSP song ‘The Ultimate Sandwich’.

I have wanted to make a recipe based on this song for quite some time now, and now I finally feel like I’m ready.

So please, step into my demonic kitchen of pain…and feast your eyes!

 

The Recipe

I did admittedly have to scale everything down, so if you want the authentic Ultimate Sandwich experience you’ll have to scale it back up again.

 

1. Cut two big slices of “wheat bread made from thirty thousand separate grains“. I went with a muesli bread, as the sweetness of the dried fruit matched well with all the meat in the sandwich.

2. Place one bread slice on a plate and cover it in salad and sun-dried tomatoes. Salad was never mentioned in the song, so this may be a bit sacrilegious, but salad on sandwiches is a must for me.

3. Pour over “an explosion” of clams.

4. Add “a dickload” of “weapons-grade ham“.

5. Place slices of “a shit-ton of chicken” on top of the ham. Chicken breast needs to be cooked in the oven on 200 degrees celsius (400 degrees farenheit) for about 15-20 minutes, depending on the size.

6. Add some cherry tomato slices. Also sacrilegious.

7. Add some slices of baked yams. The slices need to be baked in the oven until they start softening up, for about 20-25 minutes at 200°C/400°F.

8. I did not even try to find panther here in Norway (and I also like cats too much), but after some research I learned that pork loin apparently tastes a lot like panther. Pork loin needs to cook in the oven at 175°C/350°F for about one hour with a thermometer inserted into the center, until the internal temperature of the meat is 63°C/145°F. Slice that up, and add it to the sandwich.

9. I also had to find a replacement for bear, and since bear meat is supposedly very gamey, I figured moose meat would work. Cook the meat in the oven at 125°C/260°F until the thermometer for the internal temperature of the meat reads 65°C/150°F.

10. Duck breast was much easier to get a hold of. Cook the breast according to the specifications in my McDuck Breast recipe, slice it up, and add it to the pile.

11. Place some fried bacon on top of the duck meat, along with a handful of walnuts. While you fry the bacon in a pan, add the nuts in at the last minute, so that the bacon greases the nuts.

12. Top it all of with man’s hottest peppers, before placing the second slice of bread on the tippy-top.

13. Serve with “a bucket” of ranch dressing on the side.

14. …then slide in a sausage.

This bad-boy weighted in at just under one kilogram, or two pounds!

And you won’t belive this, but it was actually really good!
