We all know that we’re supposed to eat healthy. Our parents have pounded Eat Your Vegetables! into our heads since we were kids. But the honest truth is that sometimes vegetables can be a wee bit hard on the digestive system and while we know dark leafy greens are chockfull of vitamins, they are also full of, well, gas. Portlandia knows your dark secrets and is willing to air them out …so long as any and all such airing takes place in the designated area a.k.a. the fart patio.

In this sneak peek clip from the brand new episode of Portlandia, which airs Friday at 10/9c, Malcolm (Fred Armisen) and Kris (Carrie Brownstein) decide to start eating healthy by having lunch at a local raw vegan restaurant. However, their lunch time suddenly becomes uncomfortable as Malcolm and Kris realize eating raw food can have some side effects.

Watch this clip and be sure to tune in this Friday and be on the look out for guest star Juliette Lewis (Conviction, Natural Born Killers) as she drops by Portlandia for a special visit.

Meet the Portlandia Co-Op: Jim McHugh

Posted by on

As you are aware, the third season of Portlandia is underway with a new episode airing each Friday at 10/9c. To celebrate the welcome 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’ll take a few minutes to introduce you to the fans who are operating behind-the-scenes to make @ifcPortlandia the destination for Portlandia fans on Twitter.

This week Jim McHugh, pictured here with his lovely wife Erin, is taking the reins of @IFCportlandia:

Jim answered a few questions before taking control:

Name, city of residence and occupation

Jim McHugh, Woodbury, NJ (basically suburbs of Philly), freelance illustrator/teacher’s aide/novice Santa.

Do you recycle? Compost? Bring your own bag?

All three! Compost is the key–last summer we grew over 300 tomatoes on three plants! Yeah, compost!

Have you ever been to Portland?

No, but I have heard such good things. It seems like a good place to draw caricatures.

Who is your favorite character on Portlandia?

Spyke the bike messenger because he knows when things are OVER!

Which character do you think you are most like?

Peter, because I like to know where my food comes from. I don’t stutter like him, but I can be indecisive. Well, not really. OK, sometimes.

What is your most Portlandian trait?

My wife and I want to open a feminist design studio/art gallery/vintage resale food truck.

Why did you want to run Portlandia’s Twitter feed?

Because we are seriously considering moving there. We really love the show! Thought it’d be an interesting experience.

What’s your favorite sketch?

“The People Who Need a Housesitter for Two Hours,” guest-starring Aubrey Plaza.

Have you ever waited in line for brunch?

I haven’t, but I would. I love all foods that are breakfast-centric with a splash of lunch. I would never cut in line though.

We hear you’re thinking about moving to Portland… tell us more.

My cousin Keith, another creative-type, recently relocated from Philly and seems to be enjoying Portland life. Even though the show is full of characters, the people at least seem happy enough. We’re ready for positive changes, access to better food, and keeping the dream of the 90s alive. Portland seems to be home to like-minded people, which would be a nice change from where we live.

Contrary to popular opinion, Kumail Nanjiani does not sit around thinking about going back to the womb. That does not stop him from giving a float tank a try in the latest installment of Kumail Tours Portlandia.

In this episode, Kumail decides to give floating in a salty sensory deprivation tank a whirl, despite the fact that the owner of the establishment tells Kumail that he will see swirling nebulas and gorillas on surfboards while sitting alone and suspended in a tank of salty water. After all, when you’re in Portlandia you may as well do as the Portlandians, right? Besides, it’s his job. So watch Kumail as he goes to Float On in Portland, Or., and finds out that getting in a salty sensory deprivation tanks sometimes means seeing a dog with your mom’s eyes

Watch as Kumail continues his tour of Portlandia and tune in for a new episode of Portlandia on Friday at 10/9c:
