The Dream of the 90s

Portlandia just got picked up for a second season, and I am so glad it has! My girlfriend and I have been keeping up with the series, and it is so funny. Many of the character types on this show I see a lot of in Seattle, but this show makes me want to move to Portland and retire as a young person. Fred Armisen (from SNL), and  Carrie Brownstein (of Sleater-Kinney) make up this comedy duo. For Portlandia, these two comics refined and recreated many of the skits found in their Thunder Ant series with great success. I think our favorite skits involve the feminist bookstore. We keep quoting "every time you point I see a penis" at each other, and my girlfriend is thinking of getting an indigenous paint-suit for formal occasions. My girlfriend loves the fact that the mayor of Portland is played by Kyle MacLachlan, who plays her favorite character on Desperate Housewives.

So! Watch it, love it, and put a bird on it!
