Reading Digest: Lots of Clothing Edition

Scenes from the Class Struggle in Springfield9

“I need a formal dress for tonight!” – Marge Simpson
“You’ve come to the right place.” – Patty Bouvier
“We’ve got classy duds up the yinyang. . . . I call this one, ‘Fantasy in Maroon’.” – Selma Bouvier
“It’s got some cigarette burns, but we can patch ’em up with new vinyl.” – Patty Bouvier
“It’s a bit peppery for me.  Why don’t we put this in the maybe pile?” – Marge Simpson

Season 25 rolled unmourned into the past this week with hardly a peep from the internet.  I was sort of hoping for a few more stories about how the ratings are historically low, but Zombie Simpsons has become such a dull and ordinary thing that even that didn’t rate.  But we do have the usual smattering of fun stuff, including three links to officially licensed clothing and one to a (far superior) fan made jacket.  In addition to that, we’ve got two pieces of Australian usage, some love for Lisa, great Lego pictures, a couple of people who agree with us, and more sand Simpsons from England.

Enjoy.

A Hypothetical Aside and Round 113: Homer Badman vs. The Wandering Juvie – Smooth Charlie’s link of the week is our old friend Nebel asking what if the show had gone off the air after Season 9?  I agree that they probably would have rebooted it by now.  I wonder if that would’ve been worse or better than Zombie Simpsons?

I am the Lizard Queen – Homemade punk Lisa jacket.  Yes.  Ten thousand times, yes.

The Simpsons™ LEGO® Minifigure Series – Excellent series of fan photos, including such notable pairings and Nelson and Milhouse, Burns and Maggie, and, of course, Homer and Flanders.

I used to be with ‘it’… – Excellent .gif of one of Grampa’s greatest lines.

Round 111: El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer) vs. Home Sweet Homediddly-Dum-Doodily – Oh, bitch, bitch, bitch.

Round 112: In the Name of the Grandfather vs. Beyond Blunderdome – Nice that “winner” is in quotes for Season 20 vs. Season 11.

How Do You Solve a Problem like Animation? – Nice catch on the Chomet couch gag:

Even the light switch is French, guys.

So it is.

Simpsons character leering over Tweed Heads motorists – An enterprising Australian graffiti artist has a mostly complete Burns-as-Dracula done on an embankment overlooking a highway.  Fresh victims for his ever growing army of the undead, no doubt.

WA’s ‘Flanders’ jokes amid budget gloom – And speaking of Australia, our old friend D.N. sent this in a couple of weeks ago (and I completely forgot about it):

Western Australia’s state government has just announced the 2014-15 budget, hiking up prices, hitting families, and selling off billions of dollars’ worth of assets to regain the state’s AAA credit rating. The announcement is not going down well. What does this have to do with The Simpsons? Well… Take a look at the attached photographs. The first is of the front page of the state’s leading daily newspaper, The West Australian (Friday 9 May); the second is from the inside. Both pictures were drawn by cartoonist Dean Alston.

StupidBudgetFlanders01

And:

StupidBudgetFlanders02

Thanks, D.N.!  (And good luck with Budget Flanders.)

Family Guy Review: Toast House – A sad, but I think accurate, observation:

Fifteen years ago – when I was a devoted Simpsons fanatic who dismissed this show as knock-off claptrap – I certainly never would have dreamed that I’d be looking forward to Family Guy each week, while I haven’t caught an episode of the Simpsons in years.

But Family Guy’s joke machinery – rather than The Simpsons’ warm character development – has better weathered the test of time. I’m shocked to hear myself say it, but I really think the Griffins are the ones doing the Simpsons a favor with this crossover.

Outside of post-football, I can’t recall the last time I saw Zombie Simpsons with higher ratings than Family Guy.

Burps Sea Doodles! – Neat fan sketch of Bart and Homer.

How To Start Planning My Creative Future While Watching The Simpsons – I’m envious:

Anywho…recently, my retail job and watching early seasons of The Simpsons have taken up most, if not all, of my time. I had never seen an episode of the Simpsons until this year and now I’m addicted. It’s like a meteor of stupid and relevant humor landed in my lap and I can’t get rid of the stains, no matter how hard I try. So far, my favorite seasons are 3, 5, 6, and 8 and I go on amazon a lot to find others.

I’d stop around 9.

I Was Mint For You – Me too:

It also reminds me of a fantastic visual gag from The Simpsons where Homer strides into his kitchen and declares to Lisa, who is lamenting her lack of power as an eight-year-old girl, that as part of the coveted 18 to 49 white male demographic, everyone listens to his ideas, upon which he promptly pulls a can out of the cupboard bearing a label for “Nuts and Gum, Together at Last!” and starts chowing down.  Slays me every time.

Things we love: Drop Dead Clothing – High fashion clothing embraces Itchy & Scratchy.  Never thought I’d see the day.

Cartoon Feminists – Lisa naturally headlines the list, but there’s more, including a good Bob’s Burgers .gif.

DeadstocksVA Conceptual Art Collection – I don’t think they’ve ever done a merchandising tie in with Nike, but if they did, that’s probably what it would look like.

The Top 25 Simpsons Episodes Of All Time – From Paste magazine.  There’s only one pick from Zombie Simpsons, and it’s #24.  You also don’t see the Poochie episode take #1 on these very often.

Beer and bacon – together at last! – Wow, that looks good.  Also, there’s a .gif of Homer’s epic escape from the candy convention.

Let’s get this started – YouTube of a couple of girls taking that quiz where you call the episode based on a single screen grab.  Excellent guesswork on the last one.

simpsonized game of thrones – Sure, stick Jaime with all the ladies.  He’s pretty enough.  (Also: well done.)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Works of Art? – Bart, Maggie and Santa’s Little Helper painted on an East German car long, long ago.  Bravo.  (I think that’s Homer on the roof.)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art – More beach Simpsons in England.  I wonder if this was our old friend Martin Artman?

Our students met The Simpsons writers & creator! – Groening and company may not be able to turn out a decent episode anymore, but they remain comprehensively nice people.

Maureen Lipman and The Simpsons’ Harry Shearer Will Star in West End Transfer of Oliver Cotton’s Daytona – Is the title of Hardest Working Man in Show Business currently vacant?  Because Shearer is making a serious run at it.

Ralph Wiggum amigurumi – Cool:

This is an amigurumi doll I made for a friend two years ago at her request. Her boyfriend’s favorite character from The Simpsons was Ralph Wiggum, and I think this was a gift for his birthday or Christmas, I cannot recall!

This is the kind of project I love, fan art. It’s always fun to re-create characters using a crochet hook and yarn, you never know what you are going to end up with, but the challenge makes it fun.

And it looks great.

ELEVENPARIS x The Simpsons x colette Capsule Collection – Officially licensed t-shirts tend to suck, but this one is pretty clever.

The Simpsons x New Era x PORTER 25th Anniversary Collection – Case in point of the above.

Good Beer Week kicks off – Excellent usage:

WHILE Homer Simpson’s beverage of choice is Duff – “the beer that makes the day fly” – Bendigo’s beer connoisseurs, it seems, prefer more sophisticated malts.

The commercial actually calls it, “the beer that makes the days fly by”, but that’s close enough.  (Plus it gets bonus points for being from Season 1.)

Now they’ve apparently just stopped trying – And finally, I get to end with someone who agrees with us, this time a for real newspaper writer:

I still watch “The Simpsons.” I don’t know why. I think I’ll be relieved when I finally just stop, and then watch the highlights or check out the show when social media makes a fuss. Right now, I’m one of the people who posts on those rare instances when the show is creative or clever.
But every once in a while, “The Simpsons” pushes things with me a little too much.

He’s upset about that dumb and pointlessly gory Itchy & Scratchy cartoon from a couple of weeks ago, and justifiably so.

Reading Digest: Terrible Costumes Edition

Scenes from the Class Struggle in Springfield5

“This was originally a Halloween costume, but it found its way into my regular rotation.” – Selma Bouvier

Once you get above the age of twelve or so, it becomes difficult, bordering on impossible, to wear a store bought Halloween costume without looking like a dork.  Things are made even worse if the store bought costume is something that you could’ve put together if you’d given it more than ten minutes of effort.  Below we have three examples of why this is.  All three are just awful, and all three could easily be done better with spare parts (and probably cheaper too).  Boo, store costumes.

In addition to that we’ve got lots of other Halloween stuff, including several Treehouse of Horror articles.  And on top of those, there’s some carnival games, misquoted closed captioning, a couple of people who agree with us, and a shitload of awesome Simpsons tattoos.

Enjoy.

Best of the Simpsons: Emotional Moments – Smooth Charlie’s Link of the Week is this excellent list of 25 great Simpsons moments, some happy, some sad, and none Zombie.

Treehouse of Horror – A brand new blog dedicated to “the greatness of all things from the 80s and 90s” kicks things off by reminiscing about the original “Treehouse of Horror”:

That is the warning we get from Marge as the program opens.  Hard to believe, but, The Simpsons was considered controversial at the time.  In fact, I can remember as a child not being allowed to watch the show.  Like many other millions of kids, I watched it anyway, and I turned out just fine.  At least I think so.

There were always a couple of kids at school who couldn’t watch the show.  They felt terribly left out.

RTF’s ‘Geeky Tattoos’ #4 (The Simpsons) – A collection of awesome Simpsons tattoos people have gotten.  There’s a couple here I’ve seen before, but most of them are new to me.  The typewriter monkey and the gummy Venus are just awesome.

Sports On TV: The Simpsons’ 20 Greatest Golden Age Sports Moments – Great slideshow, and no Zombie Simpsons:

For this week’s Sports On TV column, I used the most generally agreed-upon definition of the show’s prime: season 2 through season 8. Tackling the best sports moments of a monster like ‘The Simpsons’ is tough, so consider this a Part 1 of its own series, destined to include a Part 2, Part 3, and even a Part 4, should we delve into those wretched, later season guest star hives like "Homer and Ned’s Hail Mary Pass".

Nah, I wouldn’t do that.  It’s all just guest stars where one of the Simpsons says, “Celebrity name X!” and then nothing interesting happens.

Language Log » Simpsons – More credentialed people noting that the show has altered the English language:

From the November issue of Mental Floss (not online yet), under the title "The 25 Most Powerful TV Shows of the Last 25 Years":

You don’t need to turn on the TV to hear The Simpsons. Just chat with pretty much anyone. As University of Pennsylvania linguistic professor Mark Liberman wrote in 2005, "The Simpsons has apparently taken over from Shakespeare and the Bible as our culture’s greatest source of idioms, catchphrases, and sundry other textual allusions."

(via @springfieldx2)

Simpsons Rollercoaster Theme Lawsuit: Song Use Goes Off the Rails – Someone is suing someone else over the use of the theme song, I think at the Simpsons Ride.  I’m honestly not sure, and I definitely don’t care.

Universal Orlando steps up their “games” with new Simpsons addition – And speaking of theme park news that doesn’t interest me, apparently some carnival games got moved from the Jaws ride to the Simpsons ride.  Here’s some YouTube of said games (and a couple of bored looking employees).

‘The Simpsons’: This year’s ‘Treehouse of Horror’ – Zombie Simpsons has gotten so different from The Simpsons that even the dim bulbs at Entertainment Weekly took notice:

The Simpsons‘s “Treehouse of Horror” episodes stopped actually trying to be scary long ago. These days, the show’s annual Halloween installment is more of a vehicle for all-purpose movie parodies and icky visuals.

Top 5 The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror Episodes – An unconventional list (it’s rare that you see one without the Shining), but no Zombie Simpsons, so it’s all good.

I was 12 when these started? D’oh! – Reminiscing about the awesomeness of old Halloween episodes, including audio YouTube of “The Raven”.

October Reflections: Best of Treehouse of Horror – This list starts at the beginning and, understandably, craps out real quick once Zombie Simpsons gets started.

The Simpsons Theme. – Awesome Bart graffiti in Houston.

The 7 Greatest Drunks in Nerddom – Barney checks in at #7 here, and there’s a decent YouTube video of some of his greatest antics, but I need to quibble with this:

Whenever The Simpsons is mentioned these days, an argument inevitably breaks out about whether of not the show should finally be put out of its misery. Regardless of whatever side you take on this issue, one thing everybody should be able to agree upon is that Barney Gumble can still elicit laughs with every slurred sentence and comedically placed burp he utters. That may not seem like too much, but at 24 seasons it you take the funny where you can get it.

I certainly appreciate the desire to not get into a Zombie Simpsons flame war if one can be avoided, but lest ye forget, Barney’s been pretty short on slurred sentences ever since they made him sober way back in Season 11.  I think he may have started drinking again once or twice in there, but who cares?

Dreamscape Forum – Simpsons, Meet the Simpsons … – Reader Jon sends in a writeup of a Simpsons dream he had:

I suddenly find myself in an episode of the Simpsons, sort of. I am standing in the living room of the Simpsons’ house on Evergreen Terrace. Bart and Milhouse are running around playing, but they are being watched by Lois Griffin in a fairly skimpy and quite lacy slip. The kids are doing something they shouldn’t, or talking about something they’ve done that is really terrible (along the lines of literal attempted murder or worse), and some sort of voice-over narrator is talking about a hidden camera in the very roof of the house that is going to catch everything.

It gets weirder from there because, hey, it’s a dream.  I still like it better than Zombie Simpsons.  Thanks, Jon!

You Can’t Swim From Your Problems, Homer – This is why you can’t trust closed captioning:

Incorrect Under the Sea

Marge actually says, “Homer, that’s your solution to everything, to move under the sea.  It’s not gonna happen.”  Minor, I know, but still.

Frankenweenie…In 10 Words – Cullen, Rayburn, Narz, Trebek!

Looper…In 10 Words – Oh, I wish I wish I hadn’t killed that fish.

The Most Influential Modern TV Shows that Already Changed Your Life – Heh:

They’ve spoofed so many things that it is possible to skip the book, and even the two-hour movie version. And that, ladies and gentleman, is how I passed 11th grade English. So thank you, The Simpsons. Without you, I’d have been stuck reading Shakespeare.

5 one-sentence reviews of ‘The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XXIII,’ ‘The Cleveland Show,’ ‘Bob’s Burgers,’ ‘Family Guy’ and ‘American Dad’ – More heh:

4. Bart spoofs “Back to the Future” and travels back to 1979, a year in which “The Simpsons” were still funny.

Not So Scary Scarecrows – A scarecrow festival in Britain includes a Simpsons installment.  Homer, Marge and Maggie look pretty good, Bart and Lisa, not so much.

Melodic, Rhythmic, Harmonic… Transformations. – A brief review of the movie’s soundtrack.

The Simpsons – Duffman Classic Muscle Adult Costume – A truly craptacular Duffman Halloween costume:

Terrible Duffman Costume

Duffman is not a difficult homemade costume.  I’ve seen at least two that were way better than this.

The Simpsons Bart Simpson Deluxe Costume – This, though, is worse:

Terrible Bart Costume

Those pants look hideously uncomfortable and chintzy. 

Simpsons Duffwoman Medium Costume Dress Size 8-10 – And the costumed grotesqueries just keep on coming:

Terrible Duffwoman Costume

Joyrich x Simpsons World Tokyo Collection – Remember that fashion designer who slapped Bart on a bunch of things?  Here’s some of them.

Photo366: October 8-9, 2012 – Speaking of Simpsons on clothing, here’s someone’s Homer pajamas.

Think It Over Thursday – 10.11.12 – Comparing and voting on The Simpsons, Family Guy, and South Park.  As always, I blame Zombie Simpsons for the fact that this is even a conversation.

Family Guy vs. The Simpsons – See above.

A parallel universe – And while we’re on the subject of Griffins and Simpsons, a slightly disturbing crossover image of Homer as Peter and Peter as Homer.

The Top 10 Hottest Babies – Don’t worry, this isn’t a pedophile list, it’s a list of kickass fictional babies, with Maggie coming in at #4, just below Harry Potter and above Stewie Griffin.

Compare and contrast two versions of The Simpsons, and contemplate your own, inevitable decay – For a second I was really hopeful the A.V. Club had stolen my bit, sadly that’s not the case.  Happily, the brief writeup does agree with us:

Sure, one day it’s all “Gabbo!” this and “Gabbo!” that, but before you know it, 20 years have passed and you’re left clutching at the straws of theoretical physics and Robert Zemeckis movies to fill out your once anticipated, now grudgingly tolerated yearly Halloween anthology.

‘The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror’ for 2012 – And finally, I get to end with someone who agrees with us:

For a couple of decades, “The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror” was an annual ritual in my household. Even after we weren’t watching the show regularly, we would tune in each October (sometimes November, when Fox pre-empted the show for post-season baseball) to see the yearly collection of horror and sci-fi parody shorts.

So we watched the show this week. And yes, this is another of those “‘The Simpsons’ isn’t as funny as it used to be” entries.

Trust me when I say you can never have too many of those.

Everything’s Coming Zombie Simpsons! (Except the Ratings)

Chalkboard - Homer Scissorhands

“Fritz, you idiot!  I didn’t order a boloney sandwich, I ordered an abalone sandwich!” – Kent Brockman’s Daughter

Zombie Simpsons is sort of the deluded trust fund baby of television.  It has all the money and fame it could want, but had basically nothing to do with acquiring them.  (There are only a handful of people still working on the show who had anything to do with its success.)  As a whole, the program lives quietly off of its inheritance.  Only occasionally does it pause to congratulate itself, a sort of nervous tic designed to perpetuate the pleasing fiction that it really deserves all it has.

One such occasion came last night when the show invoked a magical eagle.  Ordinarily we could chalk such a pointless gimmick up to the usual mix of laziness and apathy that shoves so many obviously shoddy episodes out the door.  But this particular magical eagle wasn’t some throwaway joke, nor was it an aside or even a coherent pop culture reference.  It was, rather, a self-congratulatory stab at fan service and nostalgia, conjured up to repeat – verbatim – one of the most quoted Milhouse lines of all time. 

Yes, This Really Happened

Someone said “How about a magic eagle?”, then someone else pity laughed, and a show I already took for dead managed to die a little more.

The show has done stupider things than this, it has done lazier things than this, it has even done more boringly nonsensical things than this.  But has it ever done such a thing strictly for the purpose of outright repeating its own dialog from a time when things didn’t suck so much?  The rest of the episode wasn’t much to behold either, but it isn’t all that often that Zombie Simpsons finds a new frontier in lack of self awareness. 

Anyway, the numbers are in and there was no magic eagle to save them.  Last night’s parade of unjustified congratulation was scoffed at by only 5.49 million viewers.  That’s the sixth lowest number of all time, and the fourth episode since February to rank in the bottom ten.  Unless Wikipedia and epguides are lying to me, there are two episodes left in Season 22.  If those two episodes average 5.7 million viewers or less, Season 22 will be the lowest rated season ever.  That looked pretty improbable just a month or two ago, but the last few numbers have been really atrocious.  C’mon Zombie Simpsons, you can do it!  And it’s something you can be proud of, because you did it all by yourself.
