Thunderant – Episode 2: “Feminist Bookstore”

We’re sure you remember the nice date between Fred Armisen and Carry Brownstein in Thunderant’s debut, “This Is Nice.” Well, the Sleater-Kinney ex and SNL funny man are back at it, this time with a bit more hair.

Carrie dropped us a line this a.m. to explain the duo’s second short film, “Feminist Bookstore”…

“We filmed it this summer in Portland. Fred and I play bookstore owners who are more concerned with our politics than making a sale.” Your hosts Toni and Candace are also into cat ‘n’ dog yoga and firewalking, not so into yoga for kids or flyers that talk about anuses.

Watch it at, which launched today. Carrie tells us, “Aside from videos, the site features notes on the sketches, MP3’s, outtakes, photos, and eventually we’ll put the obligatory blog up there.” We hate seeing “obligatory” and “blog” in the sentence, but you won’t regret visiting the Feminist Bookstore. While you’re there, make sure to stock up on vegan cookbooks ‘n’ a new set of crystals.
