10RW: You Should Watch The Grammys

Posted by on


This Sunday night marks the 51st edition of The Grammy Awards. If the last few years are any indication, the organizers will attempt to woo all demographics by pairing together older musicians with younger ones, and even pair together an unknown with a Grammy nominee. Does this yearly spectacle truly honor the best of the best in music? That’s a debate for another day, but I can give you at least 10 Reasons Why you should watch the Grammy’s this Sunday:

(left: A lot of these will be handed out on Sunday night.)

#10. C’mon Now
It’s winter, it’s Sunday night, and football season is over. What the hell else do you have going on?

#9. A Reunion for Generation Y
I’m sure there were a bunch of old timers shedding a tear when Led Zeppelin reunited a couple years ago. Same goes when The Eagles broke bread again after taking a lengthy hiatus. Presenting at this year’s Grammy Awards are none other than the re-united Blink 182. Here’s hoping they’ll tell at least one fart joke.

#8. My Grammy Moment
I believe this is the third year the Grammys are letting a complete stranger perform with a nominated artist. Two years ago it was Justin Timberlake, last year it was the Foo Fighters, and this year it’s–Katy Perry. I’m not so interested in who’s performing with Katy Perry, but what they’ll do. I’m guessing they’ll either bang on a tambourine or shake an egg.

#7. Sorry Ringo
Paul McCartney will be backed on drums by Dave Grohl. (I think Grohl has officially played with every big name in music now.)

#6. Beyonce Watch
A couple years ago on the Grammys it seemed like Beyonce performed 10 different times. Have a poll with your friends to see how many times she takes the stage this year. And let’s face it, even it you won’t admit it, you wanna see that “Single Ladies” dance, don’t you?

#5. F’ the Four Tenors
Yo, who needs the Four Tenors when you got Jay-Z, Kanye, Lil’ Wayne, and T.I. performing “Swagga Like Us.”

#4. Bo Knows
All-star, super-group jam-out, paying tribute to the late Bo Diddley.

#3. Something For Everyone
You can’t tell me having M.I.A., Neil Diamond, and The Jonas Brothers all under one roof doesn’t make for interesting TV.

#2. A Bone For All of You

#1. Can Tha Carter III Be King?
Lil’ Wayne leads the nomination pack with eight. I’m kind of hoping he wins Album Of The Year, which would make Tha Carter III the first Album Of The Year featuring a song called “Pussy Monster.” Unprecedented baby!


Final Countdown

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.
