It’s the most nerdiest time of the year.

San Diego Comic-Con starts today. Even though I haven’t attended for two straight years, I still feel the siren song of the nerd every July, calling me back to my spiritual home in Southern California. By the way, if you’re not a nerd, our siren song sounds like a tauntaun’s howl mixed with a “Star Trek” phaser blast mixed with the “SNIKT!” noise Wolverine’s claws make when they pop out of his arms. It’s pretty awesome.

Twitter has made Comic-Con (or, in tweetspeak, #sdcc) so much better and so much worse all at once. You don’t feel like you’re missing out quite as badly, because seven hundred million geeks are providing constant updates. But they’re also rubbing your nose in all the deliciously dorky goings-on. There’s no humblebragging going on here: they’re straight-up boasts about how everything is awesome, and cool, and how they’re really excited to see movies that will ultimately flop and force guys like me to write thinkpieces on whether Comic-Con matters anymore.

But that’s later. Now is the time when we live vicariously and jealously through those there. Throughout this week, I’ll be scouring Twitter for the best and funniest tweets from and on San Diego. Here are the all-stars from Monday and Tuesday:

Kathrinecsdu: 2 more days until Comic-Con. I’ve already packed my superhero underoos, but do I need my superman slippers. #sdcc

JHoffman6: First report from #SDCC — it is so humid that I’m chaffing.

TheJoBloPodcast: 1st time in 4 years I’ll be choosing wedding anniversary over #SDCC. No doubt I’ll be stink eyeing that bitch all night long. #reallove

Twilight: Another pic from the #BreakingDawnPart1 Comic-Con line! (NOTE: this picture was posted Tuesday night at 8 pm — a day and a half before the actual panel!)

BitterOldJoe: There are FIFTY people in line for THURSDAY’S Twilight panel? #SDCC

LBloodfire: I am reading my appearance at #SDCC They better have nachos!

GeekGrlNTrainin: <3 seeing everyone's prepss for #SDCC...btw, I've been to the conv cntr already, and its already hot in there...let the stink fest begin.

scalzi: To my friends going to #SDCC: Hope you brought shoehorns and tactical deodorant (to apply to others). I will pray for you.

andrewrdeutsch: Just wondering if we can start calling #sdcc “Line-aggedon”?

theonetruebix: Oh, god, @Marvel. #TheAvengers eye patches? Don’t people fail to watch where they’re walking on the show floor enough as it is? #SDCC

mattzollerseitz: ComicCon: the Iowa caucuses of crap.

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.
