CONTEST HAS ENDED! [CLICK HERE to jump directly to giveaway] Back in the early 2000s, I lived in Olympia, Wa and there was a lot of DIY music and media production happening in the small college town. People were mixing albums in their basements, silk-screening posters and T-shirts in their kitchens, and using DV, High-8, […]
Written/created by and starring the duo of musician-turned-comedian-turned-fake musician parody, Fred Armisen (SNL) and indie music hero-turned-NPR blogger-turned-actor/comedian, Carrie Brownstein (Sleater Kinney, Wild Flag), PORTLANDIA has managed to find the perfect formula to not only make it successful, but to springboard itself prominently into the public consciousness within an extremely short period of time. That distinct intersection of corporate metropolis and new age, hipster, and slacker ideologies that is created in a city like Portland is what helps to put a fine point on every commentary and skit on the program. This is because there is generally at least one person reacting and/or in opposition to whatever’s being presenting in the skit and it’s that conflict that makes the show interesting. The other major factor that makes PORTLANDIA so successful is the credibility. Brownstein is a well-known fixture of the Northwest city and there’s an added dimension to the commentary when there’s a clear affection for the environment that they’re taking shots at, versus a malicious assault by outsiders. It’s the same reason that Les Claypool’s satirical view of the jamband scene in his film Electric Apricot worked so well, because he’s an insider that sees things from all angles.
The 2nd season of the highly-successful IFC sketch comedy program airs on January 6th and the duo will even be heading out on select show dates for a sold out live tour, beginning at the end of this month and following throughout January. For those who are huge fans of the program, know huge fans of the program, or simply want to catch up before the new season starts, the first season of PORTLANDIA will see a release date for both a DVD and a BLU-RAY/DVD combo format on DECEMBER 6th, just in time for the holidays. Thanks to our friends at MVD ENTERTAIMENT GROUP, we’ve been provided with 2 copies of the BLU-RAY/DVD pack for giveaway. That means we will be choosing 2 different winners. (enter below).

These days, MTV rarely even plays videos or music related programming at all. Instead, the station has opted to place their focus on terrible reality shows about knocked-up underprivileged teens and self-involved over-privileged teens. This downfall started back in 1992 with the premiere of The Real World, which, in turn, helped to spawn the reality […]
