Diner/Today's Trends/Portlandia

Diner- this early 80's film set in 1959 follows several men and one women in their early 20s in Baltimore.This dialog heavy movie feels like a precursor for Sienfeld- as tons of the movie is about "nothing" and something at the same time.This movie was an arthouse hit and I even remember my grandmother going to see it back in the 80s.I enjoyed the movie- the cast is full of actors that went on to big careers -including Kevin Bacon,Mickey Roarke and Ellen Barkin.Probably not for everyone- but solidly entertaining.

Not 100% in love with the new Fred Armisen skit show about Portland- but I love this song - and also the free-range chicken cult and Hide and Seek league- next week Aimee Mann will be the guest
