“Our arts and crafts center is, in actuality, a Dickensian workhouse.” – Lisa Simpson
A guy named Kyle McCoy is creating a forty square foot image of Springfield from perler beads, which is a hell of a lot of work since an individual bead is less than a centimeter across. Not only is this a fantastic idea, its author is a wise man when it comes to the topic of Zombie Simpsons:
“Now, I’m a big fan of The Simpsons. Not the newer ones, so much (sorry Matt), but for its first eight seasons it was the best thing on television. It’s rare for a television show to have eight seasons, much less eight seasons of gold. But you don’t need me to tell you how good The Simpsons is . . . was.”
Here’s the video he made to get funding through Kickstarter. You can see him assemble the Springfield Elementary School portion of his epic creation:
If you go to the Kickstarter page, you’ll see that the video was already successful, so you don’t even need to pony up any dough. You can see many of the pieces on the main project page. And here’s the best part, the complete work is going to be revealed next Saturday, April 2nd in New York City (specifically Forest Hill, Queens, according to Gothamist). If any Dead Homer Society readers want to attend and send in pictures or accounts, I will gladly post them. Great job Kyle, can’t wait to see the whole thing.
