School’s Out For Summer!

Posted by on

Fifteen years ago today I celebrated my last day of high school. I never flunked a grade of school in my life, so if you ever want to figure out how old I am, just do the math.

I don’t want to downplay any high school kid’s senior prank that he or she may be planning today, but hands down, the following video features the best mosh pit in a high school lobby EVER! I stand behind this claim, because I’m sure if anything like this ever broke out again, a S.W.A.T. team would descend upon a high school faster than you could say “body surf.”

When people view this video, they usually ask, “How did you get away with that?” Here’s the quick version of the story:

My friends and I would occasionally throw rap concerts and sporting events in the hallways of our high school before first period began. Our principal, realizing that we weren’t troublemakers (just some kids with a little too much creativity on our hands), told us that if we promised not to do anything for the rest of the year, he would let us do “whatever” we wanted on the last day of school. In the video, our principal is watching the festivities next to the double doors. A handful of times during the morning, he kindly asked me, “No blood, okay?”

P.S. Tomorrow on Lunchbox I have a special treat for everyone getting out of school this week!

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

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.
