Reading Digest: Space Painting Edition

GottaGo

“Oh my God! This is a disaster!” – NASA Administrator
“Gotta go!” – James Taylor 

Plenty of entertaining flotsam washed up on the shores of the internet this week. We’ve got weird YouTube, excellent usage, a voice actor map, and a Simpsons reference from the Stanley Cup finals.

Enjoy.

“Deep Space Homer” by Mark Englert – Dark Ink – It’s beautiful, it’s the most awe inspiring sight I have ever seen…

Sadly, they are already sold out. But the same site has some pretty cool images in a similar vein from Futurama and the like.

Simpsonwave is the chill new aesthetic that everyone’s enjoying without you | The Daily Dot – The kids put such fun things on YouTube these days.

The actors behind the voices – fivesquid – This is a hell of a chart that contains several Simpsons voices. I always forget how much cartoon work Luke Skywalker has done.

The Simpsons: Kelsey Grammer reveals inspiration for Sideshow Bob’s voice | EW.com – Short YouTube video of Grammer talking about the first time he did the Sideshow Bob voice.

Barber ordered to remove Homer Simpson statue from outside his shop because it’s too FAT – Boo.

This One Episode Of “The Simpsons” Can Tear Friendships Apart – This is from Buzzfeed, so you’ll be unsurprised to learn that the headline is an exaggeration. The question is, when Scorpio throws his shoes away and asks Homer if he’s ever seen that before, and Homer says, “Yes, once”, was Homer referring to a different incident or what Scorpio just did? David Silvermen then chimed in on Twitter to say that it was improved between Brooks and Castellaneta, so I guess the debate can continue forever.

Via Jean and the NHL director of Corporate Communications:

Muhammad Ali…In 10 Words – I give you: Montgomery Burns: A Life.

And also via our old friend Galileo:

9 of the worst Australian accents you’ll ever have the displeasure of hearing – Tobias!

The best obscure Simpsons characters from chimpan-A to chimpan-Z · A.V. To Z · The A.V. Club – Via Noah B comes this alphabetic list that tragically reaches for Zombie Simpsons for the letter X when Xtapolapocetl was sitting right there in front of them.

The Simpsons Rare Vintage Wall Clock – $150 seems steep for this, but that is definitely vintage.

Bart Simpson 68 inch life size Stand-up and Comic – $60 seems like a reach here as well, but that is pretty big.

shopgoodwill.com – #30306850 – Homer Simpson Metal Statue Desk Mate – 6/7/2016 5:15:00 PM – $10 here seems about right, however. The inscription “Ever time I learn something new it pushes some old stuff out of my brain” works well with “Nuclear Safety for Dummies”.

25 Years Later: Was ‘Herman’s Head’ Any Good? – Splitsider – I don’t have the least bit of an opinion on Herman’s Head, but this is a solid reference:

Before 1989 there were three big television networks and none of them were Fox. Then came The Simpsons and by gum, that put them on the map.

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
