"What if you took the audio from an extended trailer for Forrest Gump and matched to clips from [The Simpsons]? Well, you don’t have to, someone else did and it is fantastic

Check out this map
of The Simpson's
hometown of Springfield. We may never know what state the town is located in, and yes, the show has sucked for at least six years now (if not more) but this map was considered to be so good, it was, apparently, added to the Harvard Map collection
. Comic Book Guy would be proud.

Best. Episodes. Ever.
Though I think they're wrong about the worst. In honor of the upcoming 300th episode of the Simpsons
, Entertainment Weekly looks back at the 25 best episodes and 1 worst. May the arguments, and uneeded meme generation, begin.

Despite Homer Simpson's worst fears, the Albuquerque Isotopes will take the field next year. However, the team is not originally from Springfield, but from Calgary. The city's AAA baseball team will move to New Mexico next year.

Homer Simpson: Hack your DVD player.
It seems in countries in which the DVD Copy Control Authority doesn't own the government, even the giants of corpmedia don't like the "protection" features the platform foists on consumers. On Fox's Simpsons UK DVD release FAQ page, Homer himself says "I have no idea whatsoever what regional coding means. But it is essential that you buy a multi-regional player. Do it now." Is the DVD region-coding system really only relevant in the United States?

The Simpsons Get Respectable
in this play where all the characters from the show act out Hamlet? It's a one-man show in New Jersey, but I'd pay to see this. It proves Hamlet's weird universality, but seeing Apu as "the first murderer" has got to be a rush. (via TV Tattle)

Did anyone watch the Simpsons Sunday night? Did you notice how bad it sucked? Maybe it was on purpose
, as a response to the feud
going on between the show's writers and the alt.tv.simpsons newsgroup.
