Facts about New Zealand

The_finn_brothers (There’s not much progress with my plans of moving to New Zealand right now. I am going on a trip to China in November, and after that, who knows ?) Meanwhile, here are some links from the other blog)

Live at St. James with Crowded House Don't dream it's over, from Jonson’s tribute to the Finn Brothers: “Of the several thousand reasons to give thanks for YouTube, I count among them the many live Neil Finn/Crowded House/Split Enz videos that people have uploaded. That Neil Finn, I swear to God, just about the greatest thing that ever happened to music. You can keep your Thom Yorkes, your John Lennon’s, your Lou Pearlmans, for my money, it just doesn’t get any better than this”. (Also there, unrelated but amazing - Bus Graveyard)

Flight of the Conchords, New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo – Like Simon and Garfunkel meets Beck's "Debra". (From Metafilter)

Amen! I just pulled in my Crowded House library off my backup hard drive to have available on my laptop at all times. Their music never fails to bring me a sense of euphoria (uplifting, then melancholy, then back).

Hey, I just took that Canadian immigration test, and passed with a 70! I never graduated from college and I don't have a job waiting for me there! Suck it, metafites. (I answered all questions honestly.)

Hmmm, maybe I should move ... ;)

Oh, and Hannan, I thought that bit about you being fresh out of college was cute.

Ok, first I get your name wrong, and then I decide you're being incognito at mefi. I trust you'll forgive the spelling error -because you're just that kinda guy- and because you ARE just that kinda guy you probably wouldn't bother going anonymous at mefi.

Who's the fool now, hmmm? Oh wait.
