Festival Alert!: IndieCade 2010

Oh, festivals. How we love them. Music has its Austin City Limits, its Bonnaroos, its Coachellas. Film fanatics have an embarrassment of riches, from the Toronto Film Festival to Fantastic Fest to the esteemed Sundance.

And games? Well, there’s E3 but that’s not open to the public. And GDC is more of a gathering for game-makers and professionals, so good luck getting into that one.

But, thankfully, IndieCade’s growing into a must-attend happening if you care about the process and creativity of making games. Here’s how it’s described on the official site:

  • • The premiere gatherings for independent gamemakers from around the globe
  • • Global crossroads for trend-setting game fans who will be the first to see and play new offerings from the independent game community
  • • A vital marketplace of ideas and projects
  • • A place to meet collaborators, as well as investors
  • • A preview of top games by the important innovators working outside the mainstream game industry
  • • The catalyst for an overdue creative renewal in the game industry.

The festival takes over Culver City for three days in October, with indie games installed at locations all over the city and a Big Games component that offers up fun, physical group play through clever outdoor games. If you want to check out game art like that of Mark Essen, they’ll have that too. You want to go to there, don’t you? Tickets went on sale today and can be got over at

The full schedule’s not up yet but personally, I’m hoping to get a look at new indie developers whose games that will blow my mind. The “Limbos” of the future, if you will.

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.
