Okay, let me go all Portlandia for a moment. Let’s geek out together, shall we?

If you haven’t already heard the buzz about the new sketch comedy duo about (duh) my favorite Pacific Northwest city, you must be living under a rock. Or don’t read all the hipster blogs like me. Either way, what are you reading? Another topic for another day, I suppose …


It stars Fred Armisen, the best part about SNL, and Carrie Brownstein, of the now defunct Moniter Mix on NPR. The segments are based on these super-cliched stereotypes of peeps that live in the Rose City.

You know, grungy-Whole Foods type that look as homeless as that fellow that lives in the alley behind my place, only with a lot of money and some serious vegan issues. Or the ultra-feminist who refuses to shave her legs and works in a non-profit bookstore in the Pearl District.

They pepper in the most humorous of observations about Portland, like their super nice drivers and how everyone seems to be stuck in the nineties.

It’s funny.

Seriously, stop reading this crappy write-up and go check out the first episode here on Hulu or watch it tonight (and every Friday night) on IFC at 10:30 p.m.
