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

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

I clearly remember buying this during my lunch hour from a nearby Best Buy, just not the exact day other than it probably was a Tuesday when all new media used to arrive. A DVD player had joined my household … Continue reading

My side hustle has been outed!

Well at least would be a more modern-looking Pope and the High-Tops were already in my possession, no need for Catholics worldwide to pass the collection plate for me.

RIP Jackie Mason

The majority of people younger than Boomers know him as Krusty’s rabbi father, a role he returned to play about a dozen times. Pretty good for a recurring guest character. He was also Navin’s brief employer in The Jerk, until the … Continue reading

What Moe Szyslak would look like if he were “real”

Click on the picture if you want to see a larger, scarier, up-close view. I do admit, it’s less frightening than Homer’s. You can also notice the greater resemblance to Moe’s original source, comedian/writer Rich Hall from Fridays, SNL, Not Necessarily … Continue reading

The Simpsons nailed it beyond my expectations

You know you’re doing something right/well when it really, really pisses off the object of ridicule. Sure, Morrissey is low-hanging fruit for my generation (Gen X) and he probably isn’t too well known by Mills and Gen Z, but he … Continue reading

RIP Marc Wilmore (belated)

Damned Twitter! Found out through fellow Producer Mike Reiss that Marc died last week from CV-19. Life is unfair all to often since Orange Foolius and his legions remain free and not in prison where they belong while a person … Continue reading

New shirt for the puppets

I guess we had to wait over a generation to forget Bar’s ‘underachiever and proud of it’ joke  to enjoy how smart Lisa is. I scored this at Old Navy while getting emergency fat-guy jeans for myself. Would’ve been nice … Continue reading

RIP Cloris Leachman

Another stalwart of Mel Brooks’ comedies but also a heavy hitter when it came to drama since Cloris won an Oscar® for The Last Picture Show, a movie keep trying to see but put off. TCM’s 30 Days of Ocsars is coming up, … Continue reading

Quick, get McBain on the line!

While en route to Richland for a football game, this gravel truck was spotted. Screw Qanon, the real conspiracy is Senator Mendoza running an illegal drug-smuggling operation for years! OK, it’s just goofiness since I’ve been watching The Simpsons on Disney+ … Continue reading

Disney+ now allows The Simpsons to be viewed correctly!

Being able to watch The Simpsons without needing a DVD player and/or FX was a big incentive to subscribing to Disney+. However, the streaming playback sucked because they continued follow FX’s policy of zooming in on the first 22 seasons to avoid … Continue reading

Another hack whining about The Simpsons

Hard to believe a Christmas Special starring the characters from the interstitials on The Tracy Ullman show would lead to a 30-year run on network TV in America. Well, years later James L. Brooks and Matt Groening would reveal how the … Continue reading

Feel the radioactive slapshot of the Isotopes!

Thanks again to Geeky Jerseys, my Simpsons-based Springfield Isotopes was customized and made a reality. I think the maker has done it before but this time I was on top of it! The hardest part was picking a name and … Continue reading
