Let’s see. What comes out tomorrow in movie theaters all over America? Ah yes, ‘The Simpsons Movie’. I cannot believe this show has been around 18 years! It’s amazing when you think about it. Give the writers all the credit in the world for this show’s success. They’re the ones that have made it one of the top rated programs for nearly two decades now. And to finally make it to the big screen, all I can say is “Nice work”. I have high expectations for the film. Very high expectations. I hope for everyone’s sake they didn’t produce a bomb of epic proportions. But judging from the previews, I think we’re in for a good one. Ha! Spider Pig…


‘The Simpsons’ is one of those animated TV shows that takes a certain degree of pop culture knowledge to really appreciate. ‘South Park’ is another show that you can say that about, except they put a much bigger emphasis on politics. Both shows are outstanding. And anyone that I’ve heard say they don’t like, or “don’t get” these shows, never seem to be up on current events. Even though they are cartoons, you have to have a bit of intellect to really grasp all of the humor. So if you have a low IQ, maybe you should stick to reality TV.

There are a crap load of companies promoting ‘The Simpsons Movie’ through various websites. I think 7 Eleven may be taking it a little too far. Believe it or not, it looks like they are converting several 7 Elevens into actual Kwik-E-Marts (if you don’t know what a Kwik-E-Mart is, please stop reading). You can check out some photos here. And Burger King has a website promoting the film where you can take a photo of yourself and convert it so you could see what you would look like as a Simpsons character. Check it out at www.simpsonizeme.com. You can see my results above. Well… I think it did alright with the color of my shirt. And the hair looks good, too. So… I guess it works?

The real me is still taller.

  • If you were a pirate, you know what would be the one thing that would really make you mad? Treasure chests with no handles. How in the world are you supposed to carry it?!
