As the new season of Portlandia gets underway, and a new episode airs each Friday at 10/9c, we are yielding control of the @IFCportlandia Twitter feed to a few lucky, talented members of the Portlandia Co-Op, a community where fans can join together to support their favorite show. Each week we’ll take a few minutes to introduce you to the fans who are operating behind-the-scenes to make @IFCportlandia the destination for Portlandia fans on Twitter.
This is Chris Todd, our inaugural guest tweeter:
When you follow along with @IFCportlandia this week, you’ll be chatting with him.
Name, city of residence and occupation
Chris Todd, Silver Spring Maryland (or Washington DC, if I want to sound cooler), Federal Contractor in Intelligence Community
Do you recycle? Compost? Bring your own bag?
I definitely recycle, but answering the rest will make me sound like a bad person.
Have you ever been to Portland?
Not once, but it’s nothing I have against Portland. I’ve just never traveled west of the Mississippi.
Who is your favorite character on Portlandia?
Every character Kumail Nanjiani plays, which I guess is the same character each time but with different props.
Which character do you think you are most like?
I’m probably most like the Mayor. I wear ties to work but I’m dying to be creative.
What is your most Portlandian trait?
I can’t say that I’m all that Portlandian, but I’m striving to become more so. I do love brunch though. Probably it’s the brunch thing.
Why did you want to run Portlandia’s Twitter feed?
I have a passion for television and IFC/Portlandia is everything I love about it. I just wanted to be as close to the action as possible and maybe showcase my creative side for a larger audience than I’m used to.
What’s your favorite sketch?
This is a hard question, but I have to say Hide and Seek. I’m not a good hider.
Have you ever waited in line for brunch?
DC doesn’t generally have many lines for Brunch, at least not at the places I can afford. So, no. But I would.
What’s your prediction for season three?
It will be great, funny, and keep way too many people inside their homes on a Friday night. In a good way.
Portlandia airs on IFC on Fridays at 10/9c
