Happy Valentine's Day. I choo-choo-choose you.
We in Canada don't get to see all the new Super Bowl ads. CTV paid for the rights to broadcast the game, and if Coke didn't want to pay CTV to air their Simpsons ad, then we don't get to see it. But wait... we do get to see it.
I used to do this every Friday, but I've only done it once this year. This isn't a Friday, but I'm doing this anyway. Who's going to stop me? You? Ha ha ha ha ha. Here are my favourite Simpsons characters that were killed off. Bleeding Gums MurphyBeatrice "Bea" SimmonsFrank
Did you hear Michael Jackson passed away? CNN is still calling it "breaking news" in their 24/7 coverage of Jackson's death. Coverage that contains almost nothing in terms of new developments, by the way, but I digress. Jacko's death will reward those of us who still pray at the
A medical isotope shortage isn't sexy, despite what natural resources minister Lisa Raitt said. The Springfield Isotopes, an AA minor league baseball team that plays its home games at Duff Stadium, however, is sexy. Just ask Dancin' Homer.
Fox has ordered another two seasons of The Simpsons, extending the longest-running series in prime time history through its 22nd season. That will put The Simpsons at 493 episodes. The Simpsons has won 24 Emmy Awards, 23 Annie Awards, four Genesis Awards, nine International Monitor Awards, seven Environmental Media Awards
Tomorrow night's episode of The Simpsons will include the first full, permanent revamp of the show’s opening titles since its premiere in 1989. The show has moved to high definition widescreen broadcasting which made this change necessary. Here's the new opening.
As host of the greatest Scientology debate in the history of the blogosphere, I feel compelled to clarify something to the confused. Bart Simpson does not promote Scientology, it's the voice of Bart Simpson, Nancy Cartwright, who is robo-calling people to push them to some Scientology event. As a long
Ringo Starr is giving fans until October 20 to send him fan mail, but after that you're S.O.L. Here's the word from Ringo himself. If Ringo had done this earlier, he would have missed out on that sweet painting of him by Marge Simpson. In Brush with Greatness
For years I had a Saturday morning routine. I'd think of a good Homer Simpson quote and add it to my Homer Simpson's Quote of the Week page. After burning through all of my favourite Homer quotes I decided to halt that ritual on February 2, 2008. Today, instead of
Brian tipped me off about this homemade Simpsons intro using Lego. Sweet...
This likely took a long time to put together, but I'm glad someone put forth the effort. This is every couch gag in the history of The Simpsons.
I watched a new episode of The Simpsons last night. It was called "Dial 'N' For Nerder" and as usual with new episodes of The Simpsons these days, it was nothing special. I'm also making my way through season 10 on DVD. By season 10 you can see the sparky
I'm totally digging this picture of Homer if he were painted by Rembrandt. I stole this from limpfish.com. If you're thinking Rembrandt is the guy who sang the theme song for "Friends", you need to read this first.
As I referenced earlier in the day, Homer Simpson assumed the persona of Kurt Cobain during last night's episode of "The Simpsons". He led a band called Sadgasm. Politically IncorrectThis was the first song we heard from Sadgasm. It's a lot like Nirvana's "Rape Me". Politically Incorrect Redux?I can't
I tuned into "The Simpsons" last night and enjoyed my trip back to the 90s. The story covered a period of time after Homer and Marge graduated high school but before Bart was born. It sent up 90s stuff like grunge and cigar bars. Homer's grunge songs were actually pretty
I not only watched The Simpsons last night, I enjoyed The Simpsons last night. Maybe it's nostalgic fumes that are forming rose coloured glasses, but I've enjoyed this entire 19th season thus far. It's still sharp, it's still funny and it's still The Simpsons. There was a great parody of
I enjoyed this new opening for the 19th season premiere of The Simpsons on Sunday. If you've seen the movie, you'll get the references.
Watch Every Episode of The Simpsons, Ever - I don't mean to go heavy on Simpsons links this morning, but season 19 premieres tonight and you might want to catch up on what you've missed thus far. I nominate this one for best link of 2007.
Simpsons Scenes and their Reference Movies - As a Simpsons fan and movie fan, I love this collection of 66 scenes from The Simpsons beside the movie scene to which they refer. Now someone just needs to add a column for movie name...
I love Star Wars. I love The Simpsons. Therefore, I love this fan-made mash-up of The Simpsons Star Wars. It's Logic 101.
I saw The Simpsons Movie again, this time with my kids. Although only five and three, they were dying to see this movie, and I was dying to see it with them. You actually appreciate this movie more the second time through. For starters, it's a perfect family film. The
The Simpsons Movie: 8 out of 10. This is the hardest movie review I've ever sat down to write. I just ended a 17 year wait to see a film featuring the Simpsons. Since they announced this project had been green lighted, I went from heavy anticipation through a thick
Speaking of positive reviews for The Simpsons Movie, the Globe and Mail had a nice little collection of Cancon Simpsons moments in an article they called D'oh Canada. I like it so much, I'm reproducing it here in its entirety. D'oh Canada! by David George-CoshThe members of America's favourite nuclear
I made it all the way to 7pm without reading a single review of The Simpsons Movie. I successfully avoided all Simpsons-related news and the entertainment section of the paper. Then, I decided to get my head out of the sand and see what I'm in store for. I think
