12 Reasons Why Bill Murray’s Birthday Should Be a National Holiday


Posted by on

September 21st marks an important day: the birth of comedic legend Bill Murray. It’s a date that deserves to be a national holiday. Seriously, anyone have a hook up at the White House? Have them call our people because we need to talk. Until then, here are 12 examples of Bill’s greatness.

12. He pops up in unusual places

Bill Murray in a tree. That is all.

11. Here he is with the Wu-Tang Clan

Yes, this is one of the coolest and most random pairings in the history of ever. Yet it oddly makes sense, like peanut butter and bacon.

10. He’s an amazing talk show guest

Every time Murray appears on Letterman is crazier than the next. And that’s saying a lot considering the man has flown onto stage in a Peter Pan costume.

9. He made it cool to be a nerd

Bill Murray and Gilda Radner were the perfect pair.

8. He’s a fantastic motivational speaker

If you’re looking for a pep talk, this isn’t totally it.

7. And a true ladies man

Chicks dig Bill.

6. He made a great Superman

How hasn’t he been cast in a superhero movie yet? Come on, Zack Snyder!

5. The Steve Zissou dance

Sometimes you just have to dance. Even in a wetsuit.

4. He made the best cameo ever in Zombieland

This is the only appropriate reaction one should have to meeting Bill F*cking Murray.

3. He could improvise like no one’s business

Co-written by Murray’s older brother Brian, Murray’s role kept being extended throughout production. The Cinderella story was completely improvised by Bill.

2. He’s mastered comedy and drama

Bill’s Oscar nominated role in Lost in Translation is still one of the greatest performances of his career.

1. He’s a Ghostbuster

Peter Venkman has become one of the most iconic and celebrated characters in pop culture history.

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.

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.
