Not much can distract me when I'm alphabetizing my elf porn collection, but this did: a review of a Flight of the Conchords performance, sent in by Morgana Le Fey.

Thanks to Morgana and Agent Clarke for this!

Flight of the Conchords and New page -inDUHvidual

Audio page go bye bye and instead we have a new page:
Figments. It's great!
(I could say it's figtastic but I still have some dignity left).

05/05/2002 Exclusive Interview with Bret McKenzie -inDUHvidual & Roheryn
He speaks! So - did he say "Pluck you!" at the Council? What does he think about
Elvish grooming habits? What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen African swallow?
er... wait... he doesn't answer that last one.

Huge thanks to Larry Pritchard for this interview!

05/05/2002 FIGWIT, I am your father updated 15/05/2002 -Arwenelf
Guess who we found? Searched high and low and finally we looked down the back of the sofa! And guess what people we found him. Covered in fluff and with a couple of coins stuck in odd places but it's him! Who you ask? Why, Elendil of course. Played by none other than
Peter McKenzie.
Yes, that would be
Peter McKenzie father of the Elvish impersonator Bret McKenzie. *THUNK*

We were barely keeping up with all the information flooding our email, when there in the
midst was one that caught our eye, a peach, a gold nugget of an email no less. So, after a few
days of exchanging friendly and humorous emails we are finally going public and sharing
with you all. It is a known fact in NZ but we are not sure just who else out there knows.

Peter has been a real gem about all this and has had me (Arwenelf) puzzling out the story.
And going *THUNK* lots! So, Peter, take a bow. We are pleased to put you in our hall of
fame. And would like to take this opportunity to thank you for having such a wonderful
sense of humour about all of the Figwit phenomenon.

But wait, what is this...*THUNK* Arwenelf and inDUHvidual don their AFDB and run off to research news coming in. Here's a tidbit to keep you going till we get back...there is more to The Council of Elrond than meets the eye. The soap opera continues....

05/05/2002 Updates! -inDUHvidual
About time, eh?
3 new
animated Gifs thanks to Skybly and Istari.
Do you have any contributions? send them

We have many more updates but we know most mortals can't handle so much Figwit
at once.

17/04/2002 Newspaper clip from The Dominion. -inDUHvidual
Check it out! it's great!
Fans give a fig about Rings extra.

Thanks to David and Agent Clark for this.

16/04/2002 We want an action figure!  yea you heard us! -inDUHvidual
Press his nose he says "Pluck you!"or "......?" or maybe "...., ..!"
Squeeze his legs and he pouts.
Move his hand and he flicks his hair over his shoulder.

Bwahahahaha! er... sorry we're very tired and so many things are happening.
Be sure to come back later for more surprising news.

16/04/2002 More on Bret McKenzie -Arwenelf
Arwenelf and inDUHvidual are back from their unexpected trip. Not that we actually
went very far. In fact we went nowhere, simply sat glued to our pooter screens.
Travelling all over the web in our search to find out more about the elusive Elvish impersonator Bret McKenzie.

We received info and tips from all over about Bret. Some were plainly mistaken in their sightings; others seemed to be on to something. But what? ?We donned our
AFDB once again and off we went, hormones racing. DUH and I are most impressed with what we found
and are delighted to share with you all here.

Bret has many strings to his bow it seems. He sings, acts, and does comedy.

Our first port of call is the Classic club and bar in Auckland, New Zealand. Here, on certain nights you can find the music comedy duo calling themselves
Flight of the Conchords. Bret is one half, the other Jemaine Clement. Now, we cannot say just what it is they do exactly.
Not seen them live (yet) but check out the links and reviews on them. From what we know they are up and coming and gathering a loyal following. If anyone has seen them perform
and wants to share,
please email away to us here.

So, moving on, next stop; The Black Seeds. Interesting. Sites on this band abound.
We found their
own site. Little to go on there. So, intrigued we set off again. Ended up here. So, a real mix of sound it would seem. We are searching for sound on the band and will keep you posted.

Our Elvish impersonator is a real talent it would seem. We are searching for info on him, the comedy act, band and anything else we can find. So, if you know anything, send it in. If you spot the Elvish impersonator, be sure to tell us about it.

Keep the info rolling in; the more we know the more we will be able to post here!

15/04/2002 Gorgeous Elvish impersonator spotted....Figwit is gre...who is THAT?
It has been a hectic weekend for inDUHvidual and Arwenelf on Planet Bizzaro. Thanks to
TOR.n putting Figwit Lives! on their homepage, we're getting hundreds of hits every hour since it went up there. We eventually scraped ourselves off the floor, where we had THUNKED
out, and got back to our pooters and got to work to bring you the updates.

Busy weekend, our nights sleepless and our days spent mopping up pools of drool. Our guest book filled up, along with our email. Speculation went into overdrive, along with our hormones. So, what have we learnt? Hmmm? We donned our
AFDB and went on a mission, quest, thing.

Shock news story...according to a number of reports from people out there, it would appear that there is a Figwit lookalike. An Elvish impersonator no less. From what little we know of him, for he is an elusive sort it seems, we can tell you the following. His name is Bret McKenzie. We can say for sure that he does such a good impression of an elf that people
seem to think he is Figwit. He is a man of many talents. He shares a birthday with no one
we know. 

Oh and he is gorgeous.

We want to know of our Elvish impersonator: can he sing? Does he wiggle his hips?
And just how does he look in flares, sequins and sideburns?

So, Figwit fans around the world unite. and know that Figwit does indeed live. And has a lookalike so alike he could be Figwit. And if he were Figwit, then who is the impersonator and where are his sideburns?
Check out
this link.
And come back later for more updates!

15/04/2002 Fresh from the oven- a new site!
Another site has been set up to worship at the temple of Figwit-
Such A Pretty Face- The Figwit fan list
It's great! Check out the pictures,codes and become a member!
Thanks to Tara and Cait for this.

15/04/2002 That's not Figgy! -inDUHvidual
Many of you are sending us pictures- bless you all!
Many sent in
this picture: a dark haired elf standing behind Arwen with two other elves.
It's not Figwit! We can see how some people might think it's him- the hair,
the high cheekbones, the fact that Arwen looks like a shrew (Figwit always overshadows others with his beauty) but it's definitely not Figboy

15/04/2002 New pic! -inDUHvidual
Check The Gallery page.
Big thanks to Keely!

12/04/2002 No! Figwit...no! Figwit, don't give in! Not now! -inDUHvidual
Well, it happened. A link to this site was posted on the biggest LOTR fan site around-
theonering.net and the site can't take the pressure.
So if you have problems viewing some of the pages- we apologize. Come back later!
Figgy will still be here in his majestic poutiness and... you guessed it! gorgeousness.
HUGE thanks to the goddess Kathrin aka skybly for all the help!

06/04/2002 First pet named after Figwit.
A cat- naturally.
The gracefulness... the sophisticated gorgeousness... The Stare... the way he rubs
himself against... huh? er... anyway- that's our Figwit!
Thanks to Sara(Taurewen) for the info!

30/03/2002 Figwit speaks update. -inDUHvidual
We've been hearing some disturbing rumors and would like to clarify something:
Figwit DID NOT say "F*** you!" during the argument scene.
Maybe he said "Pluck you!" (Have you not seen his eyebrows? they're gorgeous!)
It was probably in elvish anyway so we'll never know.

30/03/2002 New page! -inDUHvidual
The Arena. Enjoy!

28/03/2002 New picture! -inDUHvidual
It seems our research team missed one.
You're all fired!
Thanks Kalayna!
visit her site for TONS of LOTR pics.

28/03/2002 There is still hope! -inDUHvidual
According to rumors, the next expansion for the LOTR card game will be called
"Realm of the Elf Lords". The
Decipher cards already featured 7 of the 13 council
members- there's a good chance the next card set will feature Figgy!

28/03/2002 Another mystery solved!
It seems that Figwit *can* talk.
If you look hard enough during the argument scene at the council, you'll see Figwit
arguing with the others.
We have *no* idea how they managed to stand before his menacing (yet gorgeous)
frown and live to tell the tale.
We'll update the FAQ soon
