Yeah, it's crooked.

I had so much fun on this tour. I will never forget it. I am so happy to have met so many of you and I really hope we can do this again (like REALLY HOPE).

^^^AAAHHHH!!! That was an amazing list! [image]

That was the first time I saw your Arj video. [image] [image] [image]

I love how you are all: "Tell her you love her!"

Arj: "...Sending lots of love!" [image]


And I hope so so so much they go on tour again too. [image] I don't want that to be my first and last show... and the flighty meet-up was so fun! [image]

We must be good at guitar... we're not that good.

I was surprised that he didn't say "I love you".

I guess he's one of those people that only says it when it's all serious and junk.

Finally doing this...

Each show I went to was amazing in its own way! [image]

AUSTIN: My first Conchords show, ever. [image] I went with my roommates (my best friend and her husband) who were actually the first people to really get me into FOTC.

Favorite moments from this show:
* "A Texan Odyssey" reenactment [image] [image] [image] [image]
* "Take Your Shirts Off, Austin" [image]
* Demon Woman! [image] (with Eugene!)

DENVER: My first show with fellow Flighties! [image] This has been mentioned by others, but it's the first show I've been to where I was excited about seeing all of the performers (besides other FOTC shows, of course). The venue was INCREDIBLE and it was one of the best nights I've ever had. [image]

Favorites:
* Giggling with Laura over Nigel! [image] [image] This includes: seeing Nigel walking around before the show, holding "We ♥ Nigel/NZSO" signs up w/ Laura, seeing him taking a picture of us with said signs, looking over our shoulders every now and then during Iron & Wine's set to see Nigel watching just a few rows back. [image] Then of course meeting him after the show! [image]
* Flipping the bird for [image] [image]
* Just experiencing this show as a whole with everyone in that setting was amazing. Of all my FOTC show memories, this is where I want to go back to most. [image]

SLC: Front row seats! [image] Seriously....

Favorites:
* Nikki's flowers! [image] It couldn't have been more perfect, especially the fact that Bret set it up so well for her to give them the second one.
* They saw Laura and me holding up Nigel's signs! Of course, Jemaine called us [image] , but still. [image]
* This starting around 1:55. [image] [image] [image]
* Jemaine flicked his pick at us as they were leaving the stage! I so wish there was a photo (and that we caught it [image] ), but he kneeled on one knee, aimed (with squinty eyes and The Eyebrow), and flicked it at us with his thumb. [image]
* The quilts!!! I can't tell you how happy I was that we were able to give these to at least Jemaine in person. [image] I'm so grateful that he came out!
* Hearing Jem's laugh in person.... [image] [image] [image] And also that he recognized me! [image]
* Talking to Nigel for a longer time, and getting pictures with him and Laura. [image] [image] [image] He wore the best shirt for this show, by the way!



That was all chronological because I couldn't pick favorites out of my favorites! [image]

Other than the shows I personally went to, it was so much fun living vicariously through everyone else's experiences via tweets, texts, and/or recaps. [image] It was the next best thing to being at all the shows! Can't forget seeing all the photos and videos, too.

MEETING FLIGHTIES = the best part EVER. [image] [image]
I hope to meet more of you in the future! Which leads to...

It was such a great tour. [image] I really hope there are more to come! [image]

I remember the night that you first posted this and I couldn't stop laughing. Seeing it again just made me giggle.

I remember when Nigel came out before the show and you two had the sign ready for him. The look on his face and the way he showed his gratitude was sooo adorable.

I liked it when we were all taking pictures of you, Laura and Caitlin with Nigel after the show and looked like the paps were attacking you.

Flipping the bird was awesome!

Hanging with underwear guy was also fun times.

I appreciate the tour, but I even appreciate more this forum and everyone who was so kind to post so much their stories and photos and videos (SUGALUMPS!..and more) of the tour for people like me who isn't in USA and cannot go to the concerts. Almost like being there myself!

It's very lovely, and I don't know how to thank you all, except to say, thank you! You are all incredible.
