Seems like Portlandia sketches have decent premises, but they never quite get going.
fuck meant to one star, but I was 5 starring ironically. Tssh
"I'm in a lot of episodes of this show, and I think I'm in this one but I wouldn't know because I don't watch the show" deserves a five. This clip, however, does not.
IZ, since you meant to one-star this and have earned a reward, I'll leave my rating up to you.
Fuck this show and fuck IFC. Pay me and then leave Oregon. And fuck Sleater Kinney. They're from Olympia, not Portland. And stop showing mainstream movies all the time and dumb shit like the Birthday Boys and Comedy Bang Bang where my comedy idols growing up go to die slow comedic deaths not unlike the great clown the name of whom I cannot remember but it started with a P.
one the fuck out of that star Evilhomer! I only voted it up so I could vote it down.
Really it's mostly congestion. It's too small a town for so many people all at once. I don't drive but it's almost impossible to be a bicyclist now. It's a game of Sim City gone wrong.
What the hell, is Sleater-Kinney no longer cool? What if I have them on vinyl; is that still OK?
Depends on the album. I still have The Hot Rock, and that's a good album. Wild Flag and Quasi are also great. But SK were the worst part of the grrl scene, with bands like Bikini Kill, The Gits, Team Dresch and too many others to name. The fact that they get to be the face of a rock and roll movement because of some dumb show about a city they're not even from is enough for me to dislike them, even though I still have a crush on Janet Weiss.
All that being said Matt Groening is great, and today is his birthday! I grew up about 10 blocks from Evergreen Ter. and my parents were friends with his father, Homer.
Mat Groening keeps looking more and more like Gabe Newell to me...
I can't watch it because of Youtube region-cock-blocking Canadians: is it actually Matt Groening or someone else playing Matt Groening?
Considering Matt Groening grew up in the area, I'm surprised they still haven't done a "Simpsons go to Portland" episode, presumably with Portlandia guest stars.
Yes, it's actually Matt Groening.
Thanks. I saw Matt Groening in person in Montreal once, at a Simpsons live script reading at Just for Laughs in July 2002, but that was getting on 13 years ago now so he looks older in the preview image.
His 61st birthday was yesterday, I believe.
