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?
