Gweek 084: Carrie Brownstein

This morning David and I spoke with with Carrie Brownstein: musician, writer, actor. She's a founding member of the bands Sleater-Kinney and Wild Flag, and the co-creator, co-writer, and co-star of Portlandia, the hit sketch comedy series on IFC, currently in its 3rd season.

  1. Last weekend I “used up” my backlog of GWEEK, Make: Talk, and the new Cool Tools podcast, so this  is welcome.

    Especially because Brownstein is innit; I love Portlandia and think she’s as cute as a button and funny as hell.

    I’ve been watching one episode a week via Netflix; soon I’ll be in wait mode, twiddling thumbs until Season Three shows up on the service.

  2. There is no such thing as a “Comic Book Industry”. Nor any other activity themed “industry” that doesn’t actually involve industrial processes.

    1. Why stop at forbidding “industry?” You shouldn”t call it a comic “book” unless it’s glued or sewn together with a proper spine.

      And “comic” is a synonym for “comedian” so we can’t use that word either in this context.

      I guess there’s no acceptable word to correctly describe this object.
