The Flight of the Dark Hermaphrodites

I just got back from seeing "The Dark Knight" with my friend Jennifer and a couple million other people. It was great, but really, why are movies nowadays sooooooooooo long?
And now I'm here online trying to figure out the plot at 2 am. I'm not sure I'm still clear, but then plot has never been my stong suit. There was a lot going on.

Don't get me wrong, the movie is great, and Heath Ledger is, well, predictably incredible in it.

Anyway, on the way back, to leaven the gloom...I had a listen to Jenn's "Flight of the Conchord's" cd, a show I've only had the pleasure of seeing twice, not having HBO.

I borrowed it from her to prolong the joy. Here's perhaps my favorite song of theirs, "Ladies of the World":

How can one not love any song referencing "hermaphrodites" and using the word "erudite" all while rollerskating?

I saw Dark Night last night too! I'm out of town, and on my way to the Caribbean for a month so I had to see it alone, if ever. Have you ever heard of anything so pathetic?

Luckily, it was one of those films you are kind of happy to be able to brood over for a while. You're officially the first person to whom I'm expressing my feelings re: Dark Night. It was brilliant. Ledger really did turn in a performance that will just seal the deal for him as an icon.

Blah. That's all.

Dark Knight comes out on the 14th of august here. It's one of the few films this summer that I'm gagging to see.

i'm told that tix here are sold out for the foreseeable future. i'm highly afraid details are going to seep into my brain from the intarwebs and the teevee before i'm able to see it.

My heart is breaking for Pop Feminist. ;o I'd see a hundred movies alone if I could say I was on my way to the Caribbean. :)

impressive that you ran home home and blogged it

that rhyming couplet is as good as rose nylund when she rhymed "cuter than" with "interuterine"

You have got to see all of the episodes of Flight of the Conchords. The whole first season is hilarious. I can't wait for it to come back on, but I don't think it will until 2009.

I'm too chicken to see Dark Knight. What can I say? It's been a tough six months for me. But It's always cheering to revisit those Conchords. think I'll see what Netflix has.... They really make me think about love, education, friendship, and homosexuality. Oh and hermaphrodites.
