Portlandia: Now this is the kind of television I can get behind! Carrie Brownstein, one of my all time biggest girl crushes, in a velour tracksuit and Uggs learning about the promised land up north? And Fred Armisen (still kinda on my shit list for screwing over Peggy Olson, but this clip is helping) singing the praises of a fantastical place where the dream of the 90s is still available to the pierced and tattooed? This rules. Wish I got IFC. Starts January 21 at 10:30pm.
