Join the Portlandia Co-Op

Portlandia Co-Op

Posted by on

In Portlandia, we’re a very co-operative bunch. We recycle, we eat local, we don’t use plastic bags, we are civic-minded, we like team sports, and have you seen the way we drive? We all just want to get along!

As we get ready for Portlandia’s third season (premiering Friday, January 4 at 10/9c!) we want to make sure you know that you belong here. You’re one of us! You are a valued member of the circle of Portlandia life and are part of the Portlandia Co-Op. Or you will be once you sign up. Sign up to join the Portlandia Co-Op, and receive a limited edition poster. There might be a bird on it. It might be pickled. It might be something entirely new. Sign up for the Co-Op and find out.

Want to get even more involved?

There are three ways you can earn your Portlandia Co-Op status:

1) You can apply to take over the @ifcportlandia Twitter feed. To do this, simply follow @IFCportlandia and keep an eye out for the latest challenge that we’ll be tweeting out to followers. The first challenge, which will start when we launch is, “Tell us in 140 characters or less why you should tweet for @IFCportlandia”

2) You can knit Portlandia-inspired coffee cozies, which we’ll be handing out in independent coffee shops nationwide. Even better? We’ll pay you $10 per cozy. Simply e-mail your creations to cozies@ifc.com or click here for more info.

3) Snap photos that are inspired by the wonderful world of Portlandia. Upload them to Instagram with the hashtag #portlandia. We’ll use the best of the best to inspire our graphic designer who is making some sweet posters.

Final Countdown

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

Rev Up

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.

It’s the final countdown to Christmas and thanks to IFC’s movie marathon all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can revel in classic ’80s films AND find inspiration for your last-minute gifts. Here are our recommendations, if you need a head start:

Musical Instrument

Great analog entertainment substitute when you refuse to give your kid the Nintendo Switch they’ve been drooling over.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

So you can learn to shake-shake-shake (unless you know ghosts willing to lend a hand).

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.



Get even more great inspiration all Christmas Eve and Day on IFC, and remember…
