LULZ & Broad City

I was pretty sure this post was going up late, but I just couldn’t help myself. Then I started asking around and realized that there are a lot of people out there who haven’t yet watched Broad City, despite the fact that the season finale aired over a month ago. Regardless of whether you think(…)

A Photo Tribute to Harold Ramis, Babe.

It took the bummer of all bummers to remind me that I always thought Egon was the hottest Ghostbuster. (Bill Murray was up there, too. Ackroyd, not so much.)

Watch Portlandia and Put a Bird on It!

Although set in Portland, anyone who lives in Brooklyn should also find this “Put a Bird on It” skit from the new IFC show Portlandia highly amusing and accurate! The new comedy show is created, written by and starring Fred Armisen (SNL) and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) and premiered on IFC last month. I just watched(…)
