The Simpsons Did it First

The Simpsons is about to start it’s 28th season tomorrow night.  Every year I look it up, and every year I’m astonished that it’s been airing almost my entire life.  Naturally, with something that has about 600 episodes to it’s name, it’s bound to have tried to predict something, or in the Simpsons’ universe, poke fun at something.  In fact, there’s an entire sub-reddit dedicated to times and things where The Simpsons’ did something, and then real life caught up to it. Some things are inevitable, while others are pretty out there, and still, a generation of people grew up watching and being inspired by the show, so it’s only fitting that those people took inspiration from it.

Indeed, that’s what half of the items in the above video are – directly influenced by The Simpsons, not some far out thing that the show invented first.  Still, it’s a quick video to watch, what do you have to loose?  After all, you are reading this, you can’t be doing something important.

Be sure to tune in tomorrow night for the premier of the new season.  I’m sure it will be great, or it will suck, either way, people will talk about the show, because it’s still on, and it’s still upsetting people!

LEGO Springfield

123 Fake Street

Of The Simpsons’ fame, not Illinois.  Above you’ll see 123 Fake Street recreated in LEGO fashion.  Below you’ll see some other landmarks of Springfield of unknown state.  Using an unknown number of bricks (because he doesn’t want to know how much money he sunk into it) Master builder Matt De Lanoy built much of Springfield over 3 months.

Krusty Burger

Krusty Burger, that’s pretty good on the head of Krusty too.

Tire Fire

And of course, we’ll end with The Tire Fire.  One of those fun parts of the show.

awesome internet movie video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxot9lk58Zw&feature=player_embedded

I rarely link to Cracked articles, mostly because they’re such a combination of generic and awesome, and because 700 thousand other websites link to the same one and just add to the fluff of unoriginal content on the internet.  But this Easter Egg article has a pretty awesome one in it, and so I decided to link to it.  But keep in mind that I’m only focusing on one of their random number of Awesome Easter Eggs they only just discovered.

I like Easter Eggs, infact, I LOVE them.  If there’s one thing I like doing it’s taking apart a movie and connecting it in ways that are not allowed to every other movie ever made.

I most famously did this with (almost) every Sean Bean movie he ever made.  Connecting my two favorites of his, Goldeneye & National Treasure in an amazing and efficent way that just screams yes, this is what the director was thinking when he cast Sean Bean as the main villain of National Treasure.

Anyway, back to The Simpsons. – McBane is a cross between Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dirty Harry, & John McClain, so in essence, the greatest fictional cartoon super hero ever conceived.  What makes it even better, is that when all the clips that feature McBane are edited together – like in the above video, they produce a relatively coherent story, and an actual movie.  Would I go see that movie had it been real, maybe, probably not, but maybe.

I don’t know what would be better though, if this story were planned out from the beginning, or if it were just random.  Turns out it was just random, but like I said, I don’t know if it being random is more cool, or if it had been planned would it be more cool.
