Hello hello hello friends. Wookiee popping by with another edition of Simpsons News… where I take the information anyone with fingers, the internet, and the desire to Oogle ‘Simpsons News’ can find and then post it all in one concise place for your reading enjoyment. I know not everyone looks for stuff about The Simpsons every week so, every once in a while, we like to share some fun stuff for our favorite tappers. In all transparency, this list comes mostly from Alissa as she often sends me fun stuff she finds by email. Special thanks to her and I hope you enjoy this all as much as I did.
First up… probably my favorite thing from the last couple weeks… the Frinkiac. Leave it to nerds after my own heart to create a program that finds screenshots based on quotes from the Best. Show. Ever. Truly a labor of love, my hat is off to these folks and before you start in on the fact that wookiees don’t wear hats, just read the article and behold this amazingness.
And for anyone who doesn’t want to read a short article or already knew about this and wants a direct link… here you go.
Now off you go to create whatever memes make your heart, mind, body, and soul happy. I fear this site may use up more of my life than is healthy but I am a Simpsons addict and this is one for the record books. Is it too much to hope they expand this beyond Season 15?
For anyone still here and not off to the Frinkiac, there’s more stuff to share. Did you hear about the LIVE segment that’s going to happen in The Simpsons on May 15th. This falls close to my berfday and I am super interested in seeing what exactly this will entail. I’m also wondering if we should gather as a community and decide some questions to bombard Twitter with between May 1-4? Maybe we could get a TSTO Addicts shout out on the show?
Before you wrack your brain too much on how this will be made possible, you could always just read what Al Jean said.
Hopefully you watched the little six minute video embedded in the first article. Pretty interesting and I always like seeing people discuss my favorite cartoon. Next up, one of the funniest things I’ve seen on the Facelook in a while. Alissa shared this amazingness with me. Apparently, there’s a weatherman who is now naming storms after Simpsons characters. Duffman is here to freeze off your rear… Oh Yeah!
I have some great people in my life who share things with me frequently besides Alissa the Amazing. How about a video comparing Simpsons scenes side by side with the movies they parodied? Please NOTE that there are scenes of a graphic nature in this. One example is nudity from Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. For anyone offended by murder in The Godfather or mild nudity or any Kubrick film or Harrison Ford’s performance in The Fugitive, feel free to skip it. IMHO, these are great scenes from popular cinema, hence why the Simpsons emulated them frame by frame, so I felt it was okay to share.
In lighter fare… Ned got some love by a few friendereenos of mine.
I don’t know about you but I’d watch that show lol. The next one give new meaning to Nedflix and Chill.
And lastly just because I think it’s fun… in the most recent episode of the show, “Love Is in the N2-O2-Ar-CO2-Ne-He-CH4” (S27:E13), that aired on Valentine’s Day, there actually was a commercial featuring The Simpsons for Nascar. I’m not the hugest fan of watching cars go in circles but I know a lot of people are. While it’s no Ricky Bobby, I liked this video.
So there you go friends… some Simpsons News and other silly stuff I felt like sharing. Hope you liked it. Got something else you think other tappers would like? Anything that particularly struck your fancy? Got a question for Homer? Drop a link or share below and comment away. You know we love hearing from you.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
