Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: ‘Portlandia Season 2’


For all you hipsters working on your collection of that quaint old video format - the DVD - be sure to go check out Portlandia: Season 2, which comes out today. In its second season, Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen continue their dream of the 90s, with quirky artisan traditions - “we can pickle that!” - as well as escalating otherwise banal situations past any sensible point, like when Fred picks up the series Battlestar Galactica. Do like they do. Get the DVDs. Watch a marathon. Lose your job?
