“When have we ever had the chance to vote for the ‘most liberal’ of anything?”

Posted by on

11032008_michaelmoore.jpgA tour around the interview circuit:

“Personally, the opportunity to vote for someone like Barack Obama will be one of the greatest things I will have done in my life. The Republicans aren’t kidding when they say he’s the ‘most liberal’ senator in the Senate. When have we ever had the chance to vote for the ‘most liberal’ of anything?”
         —Michael Moore gets out the vote, at Time.

“It’s always the same story. Everyone will be gathered in the house, and after 1 hour and 10 minutes, someone will say, ‘Actually, I’m gay,’ and the mother will say, ‘By the way, my son, I never loved you.'”
         —Arnaud Desplechin on the “Home for the Holidays” style Thanksgiving melodrama that were a touchpoint for “A Christmas Tale,” at the New York Times.

“Has it dated? I can’t tell you that. I am alarmed sometimes by how young the people are who say they’ve seen and loved Trainspotting, so it might have lost an edge it once had.”
         —Danny Boyle on “Trainspotting,” 12 years on, at the Guardian.

“I wrote this script which took place over one night about an insomniac trying to go to sleep… It was fairly experimental in terms of structure, and the professor really loved it. I remember my classmate was Chris Columbus, and the professor held up our two scripts as shining examples of really great writing, but at the same time recognizing they were polar opposites. And of course Chris went off to become enormously successful immediately, and I couldn’t get a job for eleven years after graduating.”
         —Charlie Kaufman on humble beginnings, at the Boston Globe.

“Honestly, I think if the old me met the new me, he’d beat the s— out of him. He’d knock him down, take his wallet off him for sure, and tell him to go back to wherever he came from.”
         —Mark Wahlberg on, well, humble beginnings, at the Telegraph.

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.
