Flight of the Conchords

This is not quite book-related but it is the quirky kind of humor and music that makes me laugh, and that's a good thing. HBO is set to premier a new weekly series on June 17 and has placed the entire first episode of the show on its website where it can be viewed at your leisure. I watched it this afternoon and now I'm really looking forward to seeing future episodes.

It's called Flight of the Conchords and involves two misplaced guys from New Zealand and their efforts to make a living as a folk band.

If you're curious, just click on the link to spend about 30 minutes with this strange pair. The picture I've posted is a little misleading because this first episode, at least, is more a musical situational comedy than anything else. The guys do not appear on stage.
