You Must Obey Shepard Fairey’s “They Live” Poster

You Must Obey Shepard Fairey’s “They Live” Poster (photo)

Posted by on

Another week, another stunning poster from the folks at Mondo. They might have outdone themselves this time; they’ve partnered with street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey — he of the Barack Obama “Hope” poster and all sorts of amazing graffiti seen on buildings around the world and in the epic documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” — for a new poster of the classic film that helped inspire his aesthetic. John Carpenter’s “They Live” is one of the wackiest, boldest, and coolest movies of the 1980s: a stinging rebuke of Reagan-era consumerism and an over-the-top action movie starring wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. In the film, Piper’s character finds a pair of sunglasses that enable him to see the subliminal messages buried in marketing and advertising, along with the evil aliens disguised as humans who are controlling our minds with them. The subliminal messages say things like “NO INDEPENDENT THOUGHT” and “OBEY” which became the lynchpin of Fairey’s own street art style.

“They Live” already gave us one of the greatest (or at least longest) fight scenes in movie history. Now it’s given us an absolutely stunning poster (and the original theatrical poster wasn’t too shabby either). Check it out:

Fairey’s “They Live” is limited to 500 pieces and costs $50. If you want one you’ll need to a) follow @MondoNews on Twitter to get the official link tomorrow when the poster goes on sale and b) go find the nearest crossroads and wait for Satan to arrive, and then make a deal with him to ensure you actually get a copy. Good luck.

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.
