...and Portlandia gets the ultimate endorsement: derision by hipsters

Here, from the venerable Seattle alt. weekly The Stranger"There Will be a Third Season of Portlandia: IFC Channel announces they've renewed the hipster parody sketch comedy show. I was really into Fred & Carrie's original Thunder Ant videos, but since they've gotten more recognition, their routines have been fairly underwhelming pap."

In other words, they used to be cool, but since they've gone mainstream they've lost their edge, and anyways they're not that funny.

*on edit: I'm fairly certain there's no irony intended in that post.
