“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.
“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.
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.

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.
