Armisen and Brownstein text each other every night before bed. Brownstein says of their friendship, “Sometimes I think it’s the most successful love affair either of us will ever have.” Both claim that it wouldn’t work if they were romantically involved. “It would be colder, because we’ve both treated our romantic relationships in a cold way,” Armisen says. “Carrie and I are more romantic than any other romantic relationship I’ve ever had—that sense of anticipation about seeing the other person, the secret bond. But things don’t become obligatory. I’m not thinking, I’m doing this because you’re my girlfriend; I’m thinking, I love Carrie.” (x)

Portlandia

No one is speaking hyperbolically when they say that everyone here is hip.  Everyone here is hip.

Today I will be busking in Pioneer Square if anyone up here wants to check me out…although I may sound like doodoo because I am ill.

I am not going to go into too much detail at this moment but Portland is gorgeous.  I’m staying in Southwest Portland (it’s divided into sectors or something) and it’s super wooded and hilly but pretty close to town nonetheless.  Downtown is really nice with lots of foot traffic all over the place, so it was a little difficult to decide where to go.  I think Pioneer Square will be good for today though.  I hope I don’t sound terrible!
