/put. a. bird. on. IT!


Fred Armisen & Carrie Brownstein's new show, Portlandia, has just been all the buzz recently around the Northwest (I guess). Like most sketch shows it's not terribly consistent on the funny, but definitely hits the nail on the head when it comes to satirizing stereotypes - most of them apply to Seattle just as well as Portland. Brilliant!

I haven't found a place to watch full episodes on the web, but there are some clips up on IFC's site and their youtube channel.

This is one of my favorites so far, poking a little fun at the crafty community. How did crafting get so uncreative?

I think these two are going to need to hang. some. bunting. on. IT!


  1. Hilarious! I think people around the world will be able to relate.

  2. I agree. It's definitly not only describing Portland, Oregon - in fact, when I first saw a commercial I thought it was about Portland, Maine (the two portlands to seem mirror images of eachother).

  3. totally. there are a lot of nation/worldwide phenomena on it like biking, organic chicken (another favorite sketch) and McSweeney's, haha. love it.
