Meet the Portlandia Co-Op: In Other Words
The feminist bookstore is taking over Portlandia's Twitter feed this week!
As you know, the third season of Portlandia is underway with a new episode airing each Friday at 10/9c. To celebrate the return of Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch comedy show, we are yielding control of the @IFCportlandia Twitter feed to a few lucky, talented members of the Portlandia Co-Op, a community where fans can join together to support their favorite show. Each week we have been taking a few minutes to introduce you to our guest tweeters, but this week our guests need no introduction, because you already know them (or at least their doppelgangers) very well: Portland’s very own In Other Words feminist bookstore is (wo-)manning the @IFCportlandia Twitter handle this week.
While you may know them better as their Portlandia alter-egos Women & Women First, we know them as the kind souls who let Portlandia take over their bookstore every season to shoot Toni and Candace in their natural environment. There are some distinct differences between the wonderful world of Women & Women First and the real feminist bookstore In Other Words. For example, no one would ever give In Other Words a bad Yelp review:
The staff of In Other Words are undoubtedly much more helpful than Candace and Toni:
And we’re pretty sure that the staff at In Other Words doesn’t believe in the hard sell for vagina pillows or anything else in the shop:
However, their bathroom might be for customers only, too:
