What became of Arnold and Helga?

Well obviously they got married! Duh! This awesome piece of fan art was made by the same person behind the recent Simpsons couch gag last season. I hope you all remember, it’s the one with the kids being teens, having a … Continue reading

RIP Julee Cruise

Very sad to see the news today and especially how Julie was suffering from lupus, so she was in serious pain. I read this tribute to her via the The Guardian to discover what a career Julee did beyond Twin Peaks which … Continue reading

1992: Johnny Carson’s last Tonight Show

Seems the date is up for debate on when this happened but I’m going to trust the great Alison Martino; she documents the rapidly disappearing LA monuments that made the city legendary, livable and loved. Much like Austin, LA is … Continue reading

Happy 70th Birthday to Billy West!

He’s probably one of the biggest names in voice-acting these days. Even if you’re not into animation (both kid and adult stuff) like me, you’ve heard him for years on TV. Billy has been the Cheerios Honey-Nut Bee and the … Continue reading

RIP Gilbert Gottfried

Another unexpected passing alongside the, “I didn’t know he was ill!” story but Gilbert left behind a pretty good legacy. Many forget that he was a member of the worst SNL cast (1980-81) in history so his career’s second act bordered on … Continue reading

1987: Married with Children debuts

Married with Children was originally just a 30-minute gap to fill time because they couldn’t find anything or anybody else as the Fox Network was viewed as a joke. The executives programming Fox’s first Sunday lineup felt the same and … Continue reading

RIP Estelle Harris

She’ll forever be known George Constanza’s overbearing mother but to me Estelle was a great pairing with Don Rickles for Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head in the Toy Story flicks. There’s also Professor Farnsworth’s mother Velma from Futurama. That screeching and indignation … Continue reading

Meet my Mission Hill avatar or self?

I know what you’re thinking! You’re thinking, “What? How exactly is that you? You also look like a dirty Hippie! Is this some kind of fantasy?” The short answer is, NO. I despise Hippies since the majority were Boomers and … Continue reading

MCU Recap 1: Loki and Modok

We’re about six weeks away from Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and I sat on my ass, failing to blather on about the latest MCU crap and whatever else came out in the meantime. Sure there’s spoilers by now … Continue reading

1991: Simpsons Videogame debuts

Konami caught up to all The Simpsons madness with a side-scrolling cabinet for the arcades. By the time this came out, the show was still going pretty strong for Fox but I think the wave of knock-off T shirts had ended. … Continue reading

RIP Sally Kellerman

It’s sad to see yet another person who contributed to Star Trek pass away. Sure, most of you cool kids know her as the original Major “Hot Lips” Houlihan in MASH the film but Sally played Dr. Elizabeth Dehner in the second Star Trek … Continue reading

RIP: The Amazing Jonathan & Mark Lanegan

A sad day for entertainment in general. A big loss for Comedy and another for Music. These two people weren’t super famous but they contributed to those who capitalized on the work they laid down. First up would be The … Continue reading

Futurama is back baby! Again, no wait, maybe, take your pick

Yesterday’s announcement stating that Hulu ordered 20 new episodes of Futurama on the day Netflix released Disenchantment‘s latest 10 (making it the fourth season), sounded rather auspicious to me. Does this mean Disenchantment is over given how impatient Netflix is? They have cancelled … Continue reading

1997: The Simpsons introduce Poochie as a poke at toxic fans

A favorite episodes of the show which I still quote to this day, especially with burning hatred of the executive caste in all professions; they’re slowly killing civilization and I’m sure their ancestors destroyed every ancient empire with their idiocy. … Continue reading
