“Portland dia” is over, and the Portland people can.
For a while, you said that living in Portland, Oregon, would get a response: “that’s California, right? Now, not only do people know where the city is, but it is inevitable to ask: “is it like an exhibition?
The IFC’s Portlandia, which began its eighth and final season on Thursday, showed the Portland map as the capital of serious urbanization, while the words “home” and “locavore” were swept across the country. This is an image of poles embracing and then struggling.
In the “90s dream in the first episode”, the phrase used to determine the launch of the show in Portland. This is a dialogue between co-creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, interlaced with a surreal music video featuring a circus performer and a stylish genre.
Amy asked Stan brown: “remember, when people meet in idle time, sleep to 11, come out and play with friends, when you don’t have any professional, maybe work in a coffee shop a few hours a week?
“Yes,” replied brownstein. “I thought I died a long time ago.”
“Not in Portland,” Armisen said. “Portland is a city where young people are retiring.”
The early sketches lovingly skewered the city’s progressive optimism and “keep Portland weird” thinking. Some locals joke that they border on documentaries, like the infamous drawings of a couple on a farm to a table, asking where their chickens came from.
Portland artist MK Guth said: “the plot of the chicken until today have made me feel shocked, partly because I can see you have a little bit, so I thought,” oh, wow, look, I know where are my eggs from people. “”
The program guided the spirit of The Times of a nation. It seems that people are everywhere pickling things, making jewelry and putting birds away. Brownstein says the show is an interesting delivery of what she and amison love. “Portlandia is especially not named Portland because it means a local improvement, which means an ideology, a state of mind, a way of life.”
“It looks like a very cool place,” she said. “It wasn’t the only reason I moved to Portland or Oregon, but it wasn’t real to me.”
After the move, African American darnell began to see holes in the show. “On the one hand, I can even count on how many plots have a Negro, and even an extra part,” she said. “So, Oregon and Portland are very white, there are no black people here, and this period of time has put a lot of pressure on me.
Darnell says it took a year or two to really reach the black community in Portland.
Brownstein and Armisen’s feminist bookstore sketches have been criticized from their original bookshops.
The Augusta Quirk/international finance corporation.
The popularity of the city has soared, not just because of the show. Housing costs have risen, and the ‘dream’ of the ’90s is starting to kick in, and the part-time barista’s job is no longer paying rent, and your favorite dive is being pushed up into high-end apartments.
Portland dia became the target of anger, while the most public opposition from other words, the feminist bookstore is used in the exhibition is one of the most famous of the sketch. In 2016, in other words, national attention, when it launched a blog entry that accused Portlandia of taunting people, ignoring the color of the human race, and promoting gentrification and enterprise as bad.
Nam Kennedy, a board member, said visitors to the show rarely became customers. “They will stand outside or stand in our doorway, laughing at the things we advertise in this space.”
‘people tend to think that people can’t tell the difference between Portland and Portland,’ says Fiona McCann, a monthly senior editor in Portland. ‘the locals are tired of being teased.’ “Before long, I began to feel the joke again and again.
In other words, McCann and others are grateful for the laughter that Portlandia provides, even if they are happy to see it over.
