MIXTAPE:  Easter (photo)

Posted by on

Two Indie Ear mixtapes in one week? You must be thinking this is Christmas, right? Close (especially if you’re gauging in terms of Christian holidays with religious significance).

Easter is upon us (this weekend anyway), so here’s a playlist of tunes that will keep your head bobbin’ while you get dressed in your Sunday best, leafing through a basket filled with cellophane grass, in search of that last Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg:

1. “In Bloom,” Nirvana
This should be the official anthem for the start of the spring. Sing-a-long now kids: Spring is here again, reproductive glands!

2. “Lose Yourself,” Eminem
The Grammy-winning, Oscar-winning tune from the soundtrack, 8 Mile, the film where Eminem portrays a rapper named: B-Rabbit. Ever notice how the peace sign he throws up behind his head, also forms rabbit ears? (Eminem’s namesake–espceially the peanut butter ones–are also a tasty Easter treat.)

3. “Rabbit Habits,” Man Man
And hopefully those consist of giving me as many Cadbury Eggs as possible this year!

4. “Egg Man,” Beastie Boys
This is my Easter egg theme song. I also appreciate that the Beastie Boys clear up a comom misconception: Sometimes hard boiled, sometimes runny, it comes from a chicken not a bunny dummy.

5. “Hunter,” Bjork
Speaking of theme songs, this is the one I use for Easter egg hunting. And speaking of Easter eggs, Bjork looks just like one in her music video for this song.

6. “Spring,” Rites Of Spring
Celebrate the beginning of spring by celebrating the mid-80s post-hardcore band many credit for starting emo.

7. “Jesus Walks,” Kanye West

8. “Rabbit In Your Headlights,” UNKLE
The greatest Radiohead song that’s not officially a Radiohead song (although Thom Yorke supplies the vocals).

9. “Your Touch,” The Black Keys
No Easter tie-in with the lyrics, but the album cover for Magic Potion has an Easter-looking egg on its cover that also appears in the video for “Your Touch.”

10. “Alive,” Daft Punk
If you’re a believer, the title of this song needs no explantion.

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at

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.
