More Simpsons Stained Glass

A while back we posted about an artist named Joseph Cavalieri who makes these surreal and very cool stained glass images with Simpsons motifs.  He was nice enough to send us an email with pictures of two new pieces he’s created.  If you want to see them up close and personal (and you’re in New York City) there’s a gallery show running until December 20th, directions here

Here’s the first piece, “Funerale di un’Amica (Funeral for a Friend)”:

“But you know, my mom says god never closes a door without opening a window.” – Bart Simpson
”No offense kid, but your mom’s a dingbat.” – Krusty the Klown

It’s tough to make out on that image, but that’s Springfield in the windows in the background, complete with power plant cooling towers. 

Then there’s this one, “The Countryman and the Serpent”:

 “And the Lord said, whack ye all the serpents which crawl on their bellies and thy town shall be a beacon unto others.” – Reverend Lovejoy

Once again I’m totally blown away by the detail and the skill it must take to create something like this, and that’s even without the freakishly cool imagery.  If you’re a Simpsons fan in New York you’ve got until December 20th to check them out in person.

The Musical Fruit

“Well, beans were a staple of the Israelites, yes proceed.” – Springfield Christian School Teacher

I find this video strangely fascinating.  I don’t know if it’s the MIDI-level soundtrack, the way different beans are brought on and off the screen, the fact that Homer’s five o’clock shadow is done twice or the “d’oh” montage at the end (which is taken from “So It’s Come to This”).  

Whatever it is, it’s neat.

If you stop praising it: Waverly Hillis 9-0-2-1-D’oh

“I’m sick of you people, you’re nothing but a pack of fickle mush heads!” – ‘Diamond’ Joe Quimby

“He’s right!” – Female Fickle Mush Head

“Give us hell Quimby!” – Male Fickle Mush Head

I usually look around various Simpsons forums so as to poke fun at the faithful before I watch the weekly crap fest, but this time I decided to watch it first.  And may I say that was a terrible episode, right on par with the rest of the season, and preceding seasons to boot.  I would also like to add that more and more of the comments/reviews are turning against the show, so finding good ones to make fun of is getting a bit harder, although not that hard yet.

But don’t take my word for it:

“Very entertaining it was, A better episode than I deserved.” – Gatorgod (nohomers.net)

And I thought low was my self-esteem. Make a pill for that they do.

“Its been a while for a pretty good episode this one was a good episode.” – Corey M. (hulu.com)

In case you were wondering, Corey’s review was titled “good episode”

“I was almost rolling on the floor when Skinner got so offended that Chalmers sees over other schools!” – Ryan (simpsonschannel.com)

Good thing you have self control, perhaps you should apply it to your television choices as well.

“First two minutes, bashing on vitamin water and check engine lights. HA!” – R F (hulu.com)

And I thought I was the only one who finds humor in engine lights. (note: R F is this week’s grammar rodeo:  head buckaroo)

“Take that preschoolers, Al Jeans’ got his eye on you.” – FlyingHellfish (tv.com)

You were all thinking it, FlyingHellfish here was just the first to say it.

“I wish they had spent a little more time lampooning the culture at such high schools…” – aliv3nw3ll (hulu.com)

I also wish The Simpsons would spend more time disseminating high school culture with 8 and 10 year olds. That’ll show them.

“Funniest scene was when Bart realized he had to go back to Springfield because he was in the middle of a Hide and Seek game with Milhouse.” – Grilka (fanforum.com)

Funnier yet is that you mean that as a compliment.

Shame the ending felt rushed. Still very good though. 4/5″  -civver (nohomers.net)

Interesting. Not only is your definition of ‘felt rushed’ the complete opposite of mine, so is your definition of  ‘very good’.

Another interesting note is that more and more of the discussions I read, especially on Hulu, turn into rants against Family Guy. I haven’t been religiously watching that show lately, but seriously, anyone who thinks Zombie Simpsons is good and recent Family Guys are terrible needs to go play with something poisonous.

Strike that, anyone who thinks Zombie Simpsons is good needs to go play with something poisonous. There we go.
