Hey What’s up and Happy New Year. Season 7 of Portlandia (on IFC, Thursdays at 10 PM) debuted last night, and I had meant to get this ad up earlier in the week, but then that didn’t happen. So, I am posting it today. If you missed the first episode, it’s not too late to catch up On Demand or Online.

Video Clip of the Week: Blue Jean Committee, “Catalina Breeze”



Hello, and welcome to another amazing year of super fine music videos courtesy of Worleygig.com! Over this past summer, I enjoyed watching the IFC miniseries, Documentary Now, where Bill Hader and Fred Armisen created insanely accurate and thoroughly hilarious parodies of classic documentaries, such as Grey Gardens and The Thin Blue Line. In one two-part episode entitled Gentle and Soft: The Story of the Blue Jean Committee, the guys told the story of a ’70s “Yacht Rock” band similar to The Eagles, Seals & Crofts and Steely Dan — soft rock acts that were just everywhere in the ’70s. “Catalina Breeze” was their breakthrough hit.

The question is, can it be considered satire if it is indistinguishable from the original? Because this is as spot-on as The Rutles. Enjoy!
