David Lynch’s “Good Day Today”

David Lynch released an uncharacteristically electronic single called “Good Day Today” on iTunes. It’s not as pleasing to my ear as his film soundtrack work with Angelo Badalamenti or Julee Cruise, nor as cool as the kind of hazy oldies sounds he created with Dangermouse & Sparklehorse on Dark Night Of The Soul. Still, as electronic music goes this is brilliant. Lynch manages to tap into some kind of spiritual succession to Ice Cube’s “It Was A Good Day” in this beat driven reverie about having a good day in a treacherous world.

“So tired of fire, so tired of smoke / Send me an angel, save me / I wanna have a good day today,” sings an android Lynch who sounds like his battery is dying out. The song’s only real variance from the linear beat it rocks along on comes when he starts repeating the line “So tired of…” which is echoed by gunfire.

“Good Day Today” releases on vinyl and CD Jan. 31, 2011. The B-side is a track called “I know” which listeners will find much easier to identify as the director who brought us the likes of “Blue Velvet,” “Twin Peaks,” and “Inland Empire.”

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.
