Here’s another one to add to your list of ridiculously amusing Tumblr blogs: Goths Up Trees, which documents the fascinating phenomenon of, well, goth people sitting in trees.

Super awesome news, kids! “Portlandia” returns to IFC for its second season this Friday, but if that sounds like too long to wait for your favorite hipster satire, no worries! The second episode from this coming season is available early on the show’s Facebook page — and above. This episode — titled “One Moore Episode” — is chock full of awesome: “Battlestar Galactica”! Artisan knots! Backyard fire pits! Guest appearances by Eddie Vedder, Jeff Goldblum, and Edward James Olmos! Shit. I need more. Please post just one more episode, Carrie and Fred? I need it.
