I find them simultaneously hilarious and terrifying. . .I'm just not sure how to react yet. XD

I find them disturbing in a non funny way. I'm sure they were meant to be funny so apparently the humor is lost on me.

Another amusing blog about this cover/interview:

Flight of the Conchords man up for Time Out
Posted Jan 9th 2009 2:33PM by Mike Moody
Filed under: Other Comedy Shows, Celebrities, Reality-Free

My apologies to Flight of the Conchords. Being a heterosexual dude, I'm not too turned on by the Hasselhoff-eclipsing manliness Bret and Jemaine have apparently been hiding under all that hipster garb. I do applaud the duo for doing this photo shoot, though. They've shattered the idea that all city-dwelling indie dudes have to look like Conor Oberst. Now I can show off my TV on the Radio T-shirt and my awesome biceps with pride.

Yes, these are the actual covers of the latest issue of Time Out New York and not some obsessive fan girl's Photoshop fantasy (unless the Time Out page designer is an obsessive FotC fan girl). I was already excited about the Conchords return to HBO, and now this has me counting the days until their show premieres on January 18. I do have one question, though: Why no topless Murray?

In the Time Out interview, the Conchords talk about being compared to Tenacious D (that other comedic rock band that once scored an HBO show). The duo said The D's Kyle Gass once called them a "skinnier version" of Tenacious D. Interesting. One commenter on Time Out's site said they're more like a "funny" version of Tenacious D.

I love both bands, and I'm not about to decide who's funnier (or beefier), but I will say this – Bret's got the oiliest bod of them all. Easily.

Dear Guy Who Wrote This Blog,
We do plenty of Photoshop fantasizing around here, but there is no need to put their heads on other (disgustingly overinflated) bodies. Bret and Jemaine are perfect just as they are. :)
Warmest regards,
The Obsessive Fan Girls
:P

*hides Photoshop request list as further precaution against such urges* ;D

That would be oh-some, and he (Rhys) would LOVE it! ;D ;D

ADD: Though, you might have a difficult time finding a body builder with his coloring (as in, pasty white skin...haha). Most are super tan! But I guess that wouldn't matter so much since Bret and Jem's photos are B&W anyway. Ah! Maybe that's why they are? 'cause they're certainly not body-builder-tan...

<--thinks too much. :P

;D ;D @ pasty white. Poor Rhys... :)

Yep, I was thinking it would be much easier to tweak with black and white...

What, what? I am not thinking about doing it! *pushes thought away* ;D
