No one can ever say that Murray doesn't love his holidays- Groundhog Day, Scrooged, Ghostbusters (that’s Halloween, no?) and now A MADE FOR TV, MUSICAL CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. No network or premiere date has been given yet, but Murray recently revealed his plans to Variety for a holiday themed spectacular directed by none other than former BUST cover lady Sofia Coppola. Murray and Coppola previously worked together on the oh-so-jolly film, Lost in ... Read More
You probably recognize In Other Words as the feminist bookstore from Portlandia where Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein play finicky shop owners Candice and Toni. But they need our help! It's already hard enough being an independent bookstore these days, even harder when you are a non-profit, volunteer-run operation. See the video below to learn more about the crucial role In Other Words plays in the Portland community. The shop has served as a feminist ... Read More
With the event of increasingly female-centric TV programs like Broad City and Girls, more often than usual we find ourselves yelling passionately at the screen, "Yes! Yes! That's exactly how it is!" That's the power of representation, and the reason it matters. Individuals who never feel kinship with what they see in media can wind up with a nasty sense of isolation. Seeing people with whom I can identify represented on TV makes me feel more comfortable with ... Read More
If you’re lucky enough to live in the fabulous city of Portland, you could experience a perk other than having an adult-sleep away camp in the works for your fair city. The hit IFC show Portlandia is looking for season three extras. Call your oldest relative, because they’re looking for “everybody and their grandma” according to the call sheet. Portland’s bustling “hiking trails, backyard sustainable organic farms and basement ... Read More
Last night, the BUST staffers had a Ladies Night Out at the premiere party for Portlandia’s season 2. We have huge TV crushes on the IFC hit, and the second season way exceeded our expectations. The two new eps we watched at the party were packed with delightfully insane jokes, new characters (FYI, “We can pickle that!” is the new “Put a bird on it!”), and old pals like the aggressive bike messenger and feminist-bookstore owners. The blowout was held at ... Read More
Fred Armisen of SNL (and virtually every indie comedy film or TV show of the last 10 years) will be doing NYC in-store appearances on December 4th and 5th to promote the release of Portlandia: Season One on DVD and Blu-Ray. The stellar IFC comedy series, which stars Fred and Sleater Kinney's Carrie Brownstein, will be out in stores on December 6. We're obsessed with Portlandia (which lovingly skewers Portland, Oregon) and its recurring characters, like the ... Read More
On IFC's Portlandia, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein lock Steve Buscemi in a feminist bookstore after forcing him to make a purchase for using the customers-only bathroom. Picking up something embroidered with a rotary phone, he says, "I'll take this wristband." "That's not a wristband, that's a coffee cozy," they reply in earnest. From dumpster diving to ear-plugged bike messengers to the Sherlock Homies, a hipster adult hide 'n seek league, the two are funny ... Read More
The hilariously specific comedy sketches made by Thunderant's Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen haven't been popping up on their website very regularly these days. This probably has something to do with the fact that they've been busy thinking up new material for 'Portlandia,' a Thunderant inspired comedy series set to air on IFC, which begins production later this month.  The show will be shot entirely in Oregon, and will pull from a bevy of Portland ...

Here's the pitch -- a great chef who loves music creates "tour food" for his favorite indie bands. What doesn't this new IFC show have going for it? You can be the judge tonight, when Chef Sam Mason brings his culinary talents and visual splendor to the small screen's premiere episode* of "Dinner with the Band," airing at 10:30 EST. OK, I'm calling it "tour food" because I don't see pheasant actually hitting an on-the-go menu anytime soon, but who cares? It's such ... Read More
That's right, folks.  Tonight, New York's own Les Savy Fav will be on IFC's "Dinner with the Band" at 8pm.  So check your local listings!  And if you don't have cable, go to a friend's house.    Check out the video from their song "Shoes" on Yo Gabba Gabba...   You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video     Photo courtesy of The Village ...
