The Best Of IFC At SXSW: Film, Music, and Interactive

The Best Of IFC At SXSW: Film, Music, and Interactive (photo)

Posted by on

Well, we’ve done it. We’ve finally finished our coverage of SXSW 2011. It was the best of times (Pee-wee Herman in the house!) and the worst of times (Punky Brewster stepped on my foot!) We had a lot of fun while working harder than anyone should have to work in Austin, where there are tacos to eat and Lone Star to drink. During the ten-day interactive, film and music festival, we hosted online celebrities, A-listers, rock stars, internet gurus, comedians, directors, actors, country legends, podcasters, writers, indie producers, and strat makers. Each star was interviewed by one of our hosts: Matt Singer (film), Alex Blagg (interactive) , and Ted Leo (music) and we captured each conversation and all the performances on film and transmitted over the pipes and tubes of the internet to share with our viewers. From Felicia Day to Emmylou Harris to Sir Bob Geldof we talked to them all about their work, their dreams, and what they wanted to see at SXSW 2011. So, what were our favorite moments of SXSW? We thought you would never ask:

1. Conan O’Brien stopped by IFC’s home away from home and we all died a little from the awesomeness. Starstruck hardly covers what we felt while Team Coco was in the house.

2. Liz Phair deserves every accolade she’s been given over the years. Her set at IFC’s Crossroads House was sprinkled with hits from “Whipsmart,” “Exile in Guyville” and her latest album “Funstyle” and the crowd went wild:

3. Matt Singer was supposed to interview “Fubar” director Michael Dowse with the stars of the mockumentary Terry and Dean, but Dean never made it to SXSW. You’ll have to watch the interview to find out why.

4. The Kills played a full set of favorite hits including “No Wow” as well as material from their new album “Blood Pressures”. The glamorous duo set the house on fire and everyone was too busy rocking to put it out.

5. Finally, when Marc Maron, Scott Aukerman, and Doug Benson sat down with our interactive host, Alex Blagg, to talk podcasting and comedy, the laughs came hard and fast. If the camera is rocking, it’s because the crew is laughing:

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.
