Yep, it's true, a Simpsons movie is being worked on. Target release date is sometime in 2006, though there's nothing in IMDB about it yet.
Microsoft's Campus gets bombed. I like how it sounds like the "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" episode when they report on the reactions from industry rivals [via larkfarm].
Note to self: buy these as soon you see them in a store.
No!!! It's finally true, Maude Flanders is going to die in an upcoming simpsons episode. Now I wonder, will they make a big deal out of it and have her martyred?
First off, let me say that I love the Simpsons more than any other TV show I've ever seen. I've been enjoying their new site since they relaunched it last week, taking the quizzes (best score so far an 8 out of 10), checking out the anniversary stuff, and even coveting some stuff in the store. I notice they're giving away @simpsons.com email, but it requires you to setup a free dialup account with 1stup. I'm on a cable line and don't have a modem, so I guess I don't get a free email account, but what disturbs me about the free simpsons ISP account is the ad interface. It features a "health meter" to make sure you're clicking enough ads to please the ISP, sort of turning annoying web ads into tamagotchis. Isn't looking at ads enough? Since when should you force users to click on ads just to continue their use of the product? Let's hope this isn't a trend that will spread.
I stumbled across this interesting site, covering the old Simpsons House giveaway from a couple years ago. Here's what the house looks like, I wonder if the neighborhood allowed the owners to keep it looking that way.
Oh. My. Gawd. These are pretty funny, drawings of various pulp fiction scenes by the Simpsons animators.
