Our Favorite Comic-Con Tweets: Preview Night

Our Favorite Comic-Con Tweets: Preview Night (photo)

Posted by on

For the first time in five years, I’m not attending San Diego Comic-Con.

I’m of two minds about the whole thing. On the one hand, I’ll miss hearing the buzz about upcoming movies, admiring (and being mildly freaked out by) the crazy fans in their over-the-top costumes, and feeling that energy as excitement spreads in the convention hall. On the other hand, that conventional hall energy often smells like nacho farts. Plus, so many conventioneers are tweeting at the show these days that the best seat in the house at Comic-Con is basically the best seat in your house.

Yeah, you don’t get to see the footage in Hall H and you don’t get to buy the ultra-rare exclusive Mad Max figure with uncensored talking feature, but just about everything else available at your fingertips and you don’t need to walk across miles of convention floor or wait in hours of lines to get it. So while our own Stephen Saito braves the Con alone this year on behalf of, we’ll be compiling our favorite #SDCC tweets throughout the weekend here. (If you see one you think is worth sharing, I encourage you to leave it in the comments below.)

hawaii: United announcer at the airport: “For baggage claim three, note oversized items, surfboards, car seats, lightsabers…” Yep, it’s #SDCC.

QTPIE913 : Comic Con must smell really bad cause every Survival tip says to wear deodorant. Why would I not? #SDCC

giantroboteric: Just wanted you to know that comic Con toilets already smell bad. I Added to it and so will you. #sdcc

JHoffman6 : One of the funnier things about #SDCC — it’s the one place you can’t get this week’s comics.

simplydab: What most people fail to realize is the ones who DON’T cosplay @ #ComicCon are the ones who look weird! LOL #SDCC

xerick: So everyone is either getting ready for Comic Con or is at Comic Con already in line, I’ll be there around 5 I have a life lol #SDCC

dzabriskie (Pro Cyclist Dave Zabriskie, who’s currently racing the Tour de France): Someday…#SDCC…someday…

God_Damn_Batman: Alfred, fire up the Batwing! We’re going to Comic-Con. And by “we” I mean “me.” You have a Batcave to clean.

JensenClan88: Driving to Comic Con right now. So easy to spot the people also driving there. They’re the ones without the vaginas. #sdcc

jerslater: I’m wearing an INCEPTION costume to Comic Con. It’s just street clothes, but I break into your hotel room while you’re sleeping.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.

Get even more great inspiration all Christmas Eve and Day on IFC, and remember…

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.


Put A Bird On It

Portlandia enters the pop-culture lexicon and inspires us to put birds on literally everything.

Colin the Chicken

Who’s your chicken, really? Behold the emerging locavore trend captured perfectly to the nth degree.

Dream Of The ’90s

This treatise on Portland made it clear that “the dream” was alive and well.

No You Go

We Americans spend most of our lives in cars. Fortunately, there’s a Portlandia sketch for every automotive situation.

A-O River!

We learned all our outdoor survival skills from Kath and Dave.
