Carrie Brownstein & Fred Armisen Are Our Platonic Friendship Role Models

How Carrie Brownstein Chooses Which Hipsters To Mock On “Portlandia”

"I guess that [the things "Portlandia" makes fun of] are ridiculous, but at the same time they’re things that I embrace — it’s a set of behaviors and an ideology that I enact, and that I think many of us sort of perform or follow. But then, at the same time, as you’re doing it,…

Wild Flag “Romance” Us

Wild Flag is an all-female supergroup of sorts, featuring Janet Weiss and Carrie Brownstein from Sleater Kinney, Rebecca Cole from The Minders, and Mary Timony from Helium.

A First Look At Fred Armisen And Carrie Brownstein’s “Portlandia”

I know what I'll be doing Friday, January 21, 2011, at 10:30 p.m. EST: watching "Portlandia," duh. "Saturday Night Live"'s Fred Armisen and Sleater-Kinney's Carrie Brownstein will star in this IFC sitcom mocking the too-PC-for-their-own-good residents of Portland, Oregon. Of course, it's not actual Portlanders who are being made fun of, but the types of…

Fred Armisen & Carrie Brownstein Are Getting Their Own Show!
