forget about ur worries and ur strife


The weird thing about this episode is that the party randomly turning into a flapper thing has actually happened to me before in NYC. Except for me it was that tall clown dude just before he went viral suddenly showing up at a bar.

And the return of Garol! Love it!

I cannot emphasize how amazing this episode is if you know middle aged women from Long Island because those ladies are loving insane about knock-off Chinatown bags. I couldn't breathe during that whole section.

EDIT: Also, the show really deserves a lot of credit for creating awkward and funny situations around pegging while never really belittling the act itself or making any easy jokes outside of the inherent goofiness of big floppy dildos.

That whole part was great. I've known friends of relatives from my Jewish family who will go to Chinatown and buy a whole bunch of knockoff bags or jewelry or scarves - and yes, it is like that one girl's* mom who goes, "And this is for Lisa, this one for the Rabbi's wife," etc. They don't seem to make any money on the bags when they bring them back to Long Island, they just like being the person who "knows how to get things". And it works - whatever they bring back becomes a big conversation piece at the next family dinner.

*This is the first episode I watched. I wanted to see Jon Stewart announce his retirement, and that led to me watching Comedy Central's late night lineup; I haven't watched actual live cable TV in months. That episode was great though, I'm definitely going to try to watch it more.

This show is at its best when it's just ever so slightly surreal. Between this and the wisdom teeth episode I really love this season.

It's been a couple of weeks now but I'm still laughing at those girls in the police lineup insulting Ilana's boss. I wish there was a clip out there of just that scene.

As a bonus, I used that scene as a way to get my brother into the show.

Ninety-one? There are ninety other "Tiger Drivers"? Do any involve actual tigers, or driving?


The scene from the preview with Ilana next to that tree featured prominently in Grantland's Broad City profile for this season. That episode sounds loving epic.

quote:

The first time I met Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, they were wearing Rollerblades and Glazer was psyching herself up to simulate sex with a giant oak tree. Tucked out of view on a shady forest path in Prospect Park on a warm day in September, the stars and creators of Broad City were filming a scene for the sixth episode of the second season, called “The Matrix,” in which the best friends decide that they are too plugged in to the onanistic hive mind of the Internet and decide to go off the digital grid for a single day. The pair get separated, and without smartphones to reconnect, go on separate spirit quests — Glazer’s involves rubbing her bottom on the grass, rolling up leaves and dirt to craft (and smoke) a makeshift joint, and eating weeds from the ground on her hands and knees. For the denouement of her walkabout, Glazer has clothed intercourse — to completion — with a tree, still wearing skates, kneepads, and a bike helmet. Jacobson, who had quickly exchanged her blades for more comfortable Nike sneakers, was coaching Glazer from behind a camera monitor, the two chatting away over headsets, though they might as well have been communicating via ESP.

“Should I fist the tree first, you think, Ab?” Glazer asked. “Or should I give it a rim job? What’s funnier?”

“Definitely fisting!” Jacobson hollered back. “The tree may say no but its heart says yes!”

Glazer went to work. She is a brilliant physical comedian — both women are — and gyrated her compact frame around the tree, oozing over its limbs, French-kissing its bark, straddling it, slapping it, twerking on it, poking it in various orifices. (Jacobson chimed in from the sidelines, “We are always coming up with new holes!”) A crew of about 25 people looked on, but Glazer showed no signs of embarrassment — she only requested inspiration in the form of slow jams — “Give me some dirty music, baby, lemme get my griiiind on!” — and suggested to the director, John Lee, that perhaps she should “try some shots with reverse cowgirl, like my rear end right up to the camera. It should feel grotesque, right? We need dat bounce!” She tried different rhythms and angles, holding back laughter while slapping the trunk of the tree with loud thwacks.

Meanwhile, Jacobson was giggling so hard she had to crouch on the ground. “This is so loving funny,” she said. “This is so loving funny.” Then, turning to me, she put on a serious face: “She’s not doing this to fall in love with the tree,” she said. “She is doing it to find … answers.” Then, after a pause: “I just hope the tree is over 18.”

After at least five different takes of dry humping, Lee called to a PA who was the keeper of the “tree jizz,” a mixture of sunscreen and liquid glycerin for Glazer to scoop out of a knot like Pooh Bear coaxing honey from a jar. “Should I look horrified that I just jerked this thing off?” Glazer wondered out loud. “Or am I weirdly proud of it? You know what? Let’s try it both ways.”

After costume designer Lucy Cobbs wiped the goop off, Glazer accepted the applause from the crew with a wobbly curtsy, still balancing on her blades. “Thank you, thank you,” she said, blushing. Then she added, “I feel like I should smoke a cigarette after that.”

My policy is to hold off on watching a new Broad City episode until pay day, when I can buy a dimebag from my man and watch it stoned, as Abbi and Ilana probably intended it to be watched. So I can't wait for tomorrow, as well as next week's episode with TREE SEX.

I know this is about last week's episode, but Ilana's mom reminded me of my own mom, except mine doesn't talk about sex acts in public. But both are very loud, opinionated, and Jewish. The "WASPy Main Line Jew" line was great too.

Just one question, though. Is there a way to take off my pants?

I love Broad City's physical comedy. There was something about blackout-drunk Abbi laughing and spilling a splash her drink (in the pop-up flapper bar) that had me in stitches. Reminded me of Ilana's head smashing into diner's glasses as a hulked-out Abbi carried her out of the restaurant in S1E10.

Abbi is quickly becoming my favorite of the pair. This season especially has been fantastic for her character.

Didn't last season's finale have a bit where she said her birthday would set the tone for her next year? That ended up being pretty accurate so far.

That was just a bit more surreal than I'd rather but they're both so funny and watchable I didn't mind that much. The Cold Paws segment killed me though and Hannibal is the best guy for those scenes. He fits into the world so drat well like testing out terms to make sure they're right for a "dog wedding". I'm always pleased when they take a joke in a new direction like Wanna Fook turning into a pratfall instead of a stammering Abbi moment like my uncreative mind was expecting.
