Stana the cowboy

My dreams came true recently when I nabbed a ticket to see the Flight of the Conchords at a small show in New York.  They’re a musical duo from New Zealand who perform hilarious songs of various styles with a comedic tone that is distinctly antipodean.  They also created a TV show a few years ago and weaved all of their famous songs into it.

On this particular night, my favourite song was a newer one about Stana, a fiercely dangerous cowboy who wandered into an existentially surreal town and picked a fight with a copy of himself.  I guess you had to be there.

I really appreciate their subtle, dry,  self-depracating humour, which is just not a common thing for Yanks.  WHAT?  SUBTLE?  I’VE GOT A WHOLE BARREL OF SUBTLE OVER HERE!
