Day 285: [BELATED] Movie I Want To See: Some Days Are Better Than Others (2009)

16 Apr

Hey everyone.

I saw this Portland-based/made/themed movie pop up on my blog roll a few months back, and I really want to see it! Not only is Carrie Brownstein (aka that one girl from Sleater-Kinney and Portlandia) in it, but my lovely James Mercer (lead singer of the Shins) plays a character as well.

The movie is about four different, quirky people who are leading lives that go nowhere… they sort of embark on a mental trip into the unknown of their soul, searching for the meaning of life, while conversing with each other.

Here’s the preview, and I really hope I can see this movie in the future:

Day 217: Portlandia

17 Jan

Hello again everyone!

So on Friday (on channel IFC) at 10:30pm, a new show will be shown that sort of BLOWS MY MIND.

It’s called Portlandia, and it’s a sketch show based on the hipster (and weird) culture of Portland, OR.

The show was co-created by SNL fave Fred Armisen and Sleater-Kinney band member Carrie Brownstein, and it looks like one of the funniest shows ever!!

Here are two clips from the show to get you started, but be sure to check it out starting this Friday on IFC:

The first clip sets up the show

The second clip made me sad… mainly because I TOTALLY get it. (I love love love Paste Mag, The Seattle Stranger, Spin, the Portland Mercury… the ending credits of that movie… and I’m almost a hundred percent sure I’ve had a battle like this before)

I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS SHOOOOOOOW!!!
