Hey You Guys! Celebrate The Goonies 30th Anniversary With a Weeklong Extravaganza

Goonies Anniversary Festival

Posted by on

It’s time to do the Truffle Shuffle because The Goonies is turning 30 on June 7th. And what better way than to celebrate the movie that defined a generation of thrill-seeking, treasure-hunting movie lovers than with a weeklong affair in The Goon Docks?

Astoria, Oregon, the small seaside town that served as the setting for this 1985 classic, will play host to approximately 15,000 Goonies fans from around the world. It will be a weeklong festival beginning tomorrow, June 4th, and will feature activities like a One-Eyed Willy scavenger hunt, presentations that go behind-the-scenes of The Goonies, an ’80s convention, a sail with Sloth on The Lady Washington, cosmic bowling at Chunk’s Bowling Alley, and tours of the filming locations. The full list of events can be found here.

In addition, the festival’s official website states that Jeff Cohen, who played Lawrence “Chunk” Cohen in The Goonies, will appear as a special guest. Now all grown up, Cohen lost all the weight that made him a sensation and transformed himself into a hunky entertainment lawyer. He co-founded  Cohen Gardner LLP and wrote a book called The Dealmaker’s Ten Commandments: Ten Essential Tools for Business Forged in the Trenches of Hollywood. Cohen will be on hand in The Goon Docks to sign autographs and share stories from the good ol’ days, which makes us wanna do the Truffle Shuffle in public.


Unfortunately, Richard Donner (director), Steven Spielberg (producer), Chris Columbus (writer), Josh Brolin (Brand), Sean Astin (Mikey), Corey Feldman (Mouth), Kerri Green (Andy), Martha Plimpton (Stef), Jonathan Ke Quan (Data) and John Matuszak (Sloth) won’t be making an appearance. And with a sequel looking less and less likely to happen, we can only hope the 30th anniversary will inspire more Goonies reunions.


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.

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.
