The Chrysanthemum and the Sword

25 Aug

How fucking amazing was the last Mad Men? I could totally get behind it if AMC decided to turn Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce into some sort of high stakes espionage agency.

Spot the subtext: Coke, Orange Soda, Coke. Oh, Petey.

The motherfuckin’ A-Team:

The Agony and The Ecstasy.

Classic episode is classic.

Springfield

15 May

Fuuuuuuu… a Simpsons challenge on Top Chef Masters!

The chefs were asked to prepare dishes based on the personalities of different Simpsons characters that they’d chosen at random (including Moe, Chief Wiggum, Apu, and the fam) and the dishes were judged by Matt Groening, Hank Azaria and one of the producers.

I’ve read the Marge dish described as a “Marge Simpson Porkchop Zombie” online hahahahhaa

People love to bitch about how much the Simpsons has declined over the last 10 years, and while it is definitely well past its prime I can’t help but reserve a tender place in my heart for it; still devoting time every Monday to watch the latest episode (no matter how uneven or waningly funny).

Formative years weaned on VHS tapes filled with hours and hours of the Simpsons (see: Bonestorm, Sideshow Cecil, Jubjub, the Monorail, Hank Scorpio, Fluffy Goo Goo, Mulder and Scully, Jessica Lovejoy, Frank Grimes, Frank Grimes Jr., Mr. Sparkle, Rabbi Krustofski, etc etc etc) can do that to you.
