The new season of “Portlandia” is just as funny as the first — if not more. In season one, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein noted that Portland is just a little bit stuck in the 1990s. But this season, the pair make fun of Portland’s obsession with locavore and artisanal culture, which is exactly like life in the 1890s. “Remember when belts didn’t exist yet? Everyone wore suspenders,” says Fred. “People used to carve their own ice cubes?” And now, thanks to Portland, they’re carving their own ice cubes again. [Eater]

There’s been a heck of a lot of talk about Portland lately, what with the Fred Armisen/Carrie Brownstein show “Portlandia,” all about how the city stuck in the ’90s with its progressive politics and its locavore restaurants and its whole DIY artisinal cheese vibe. Watching “Portlandia” was a little headsmackingly close to home for me, though, because I live in Brooklyn. And not just any part of Brooklyn — Greenpoint, which is the Polish neighborhood directly to the north of Hipster Ground Zero, Williamsburg. Since Winona lives in Portland, we decided to compare and contrast our two fair cities — after all,”Portlandia” spawned an awful Brooklyn parody called Brokelandia (don’t watch it, it’s truly appalling). The verdict? Well, we’ve got Maggie Gyllenhaal. How you like us now?

“Well, I mean sometimes when I watch a Ryan Gosling movie … but it’s so sad to say because the line to make out with Ryan Gosling is so long. I’m probably at the back of it. But he’s always on that list. Almost anyone on ‘Game of Thrones’ that is an adult. Any adult or human in “Game of Thrones” would be fair game. Oh, and Melanie Laurent, I think she’s gorgeous. So yeah, Ryan Gosling, the adult cast of ‘Game of Thrones,’ and Melanie Laurent.”

“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, I think there is an awareness sometimes that probably somewhere, for someone else, there is a bigger battle than, you know, making sure that your fresh pasta is local, or whether or not the ingredients are organic.
