A Fond Farewell to The Whitest Kids U’Know

A Fond Farewell to The Whitest Kids U’Know (photo)

Posted by on

It is our solemn duty to remind you that the series finale of “The Whitest Kids U’Know.” has come and gone. In honor of this sad occasion we have decided to celebrate their life, not the end of their series. We Googled some eulogies to help mark the occasion.

A famous writer once said “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give”. If that is true, then The Whitest Kids U’Know made a great life. They were the most giving person I’ve ever known. And judging from the nodding heads I see in front of me, it seems that many of you agree.

Depth of life is not only measured by how much we appreciate the important things, but also by how much we, in turn, are appreciated. And again, we find the true meaning of this idea among ourselves and our feelings. We are here because we cared. We are here because our connection with (name) The Whitest Kids U’Know was a deep connection based on friendship, love, trust, and understanding. And that can only happen with a treasured human spirit, with a spirit like (name) The Whitest Kids U’Know.

Henry James once said, Sorrow comes in great waves…but it rolls over us, and though it may almost smother us it leaves us on the spot and we know that if it is strong we are stronger inasmuch as it passes and we remain. The Whitest Kids U’Know never liked to be the center of attention. * ahem* If they were with us now, they would want us to take the focus off of them *cough* and put it on us. They would not want us to focus on the sadness of their final season, but instead look at the happiness we still have in our lives. Namely, some of our favorite sketches from their fifth and final season. You know they would want you to laugh.:

We will miss their good deeds like how they helped us quit smoking with their Nic-O-Dick:

Didn’t you love Finger Ring Friends?

Remember the good times we had with Little Hitler?

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 IFC.com

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.
