It’s “Flashback Friday.”

And, quite frankly, it’s difficult to beat a Larry David-themed flashback post. So, therefore, here is comedic genius Larry David (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) with his takes on social norms.

These are comedic bits about nothing that was actually about something pretty, pretty, pretty…funny!


portlAndia’s FUNny, WEIRD HIPster LEGACY

To serve as a subtle reminder about Portlandia’s eighth and final season airing Thursdays at 10 p.m. on IFC starring SNL alum Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, here’s a “Flashback Friday” interview with the wildly gifted character actor “funny Freddy” (bonus points if you get the reference).

Hipsters deserve a fair amount of societal ridicule, but the simultaneous love letter cleverly written throughout Portlandia proves the paramount truth that the communities that can laugh together can live together.

And that (forgive me) will be a pretty hip legacy for Portlandia.

Happy Monday!

Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” just got some serious musical competition over the weekend…

All I want for Christmas is for a Christmas-themed Foo Fighters album to be a real thing (crossing my fingers) with the medley above as the title track.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

The Power of (Impossible) Positivity

It’s time to turn on the “weekend swagger.”

Do people still say the word “swagger” out loud?

The short answer is no. The longer answer features many sources for this term’s cultural collapse, most recently damaged by a middle-aged father in Los Angeles who has the promotional ego of Mt. Everest and the ROI of, well, his mediocre NBA son Lonzo Ball. It would be too easy (and obnoxious) to listen to the nonsensical, yet very real rants of patriarch LaVar Ball. Instead, watching the hilarious character actor Kenan Thompson of SNL do an impression of the aforementioned father is the perfect comedic escape.

If the Ball family has taught us anything, it’s best to check ourselves before we shoplift in China wreck ourselves.
