Munn ho!: First in a series


Gazette staff
Former Oklahoman turned actress/model/ geek icon Olivia Munn won’t return our Twitter DMs. We assume she’s too busy being a “Daily Show” correspondent and all, so throughout 2011, Chicken-Fried News will attempt to keep tabs with her semi-tabloid life.

VOTD: It ain’t easy being ... from New Zealand

Bret McKenzie and Kermit the Frog sing an original song from ‘The Muppets.’

There is a poster promoting “Flight of the Conchords”’ second season on HBO in my office. Thus, any video of Bret McKenzie playing or writing songs on the fly are an automatic VOTD, doubly so when accompanied by any Muppet.

That’s the case here, thanks to The New York Times magazine, which corralled the New Zealand comedian into a studio to talk about his work composing original songs for the new “Muppets” movie and even perform one with the little green guy. It’s a fun little feature, and most definitely worth your time (click through to watch). Turns out writing songs for Muppets is extra-tricky, as McKenzie learned.

Also be sure to read Rod Lott’s super-exclusive interview with Jason Segel. And pick up a copy of tomorrow’s Gazette for a review of the film, which also opens tomorrow.

The Lowbrow Reader Reader

Deals a royal flush of smart humor.


Rod Lott
Zines were the blogs of their day, but you could read them in the bathroom. In the early 1990s, I was heavily plugged into the zine culture, sending stamps and dollar bills away in exchange for these indie pubs. Soon, during a short period of boredom and unemployment, I started one of my own.
