Couldn’t sleep last night and remembered they killed off the character “Momma” from the comic strip Momma and had other comic strip characters attending the funeral:

What? Is Jeffy from The Family Circus taller than Cathy??? What if the cat from Mutts starts eating the tiny Sergio Aragones mariachi band?

I wonder if Momma plays bridge in heaven with Maxine the cranky old lady from greeting cards…

I’ve run ads on rubbercat.net/simpsons for years and only just recently met the minimum threshold to actually receive a payment. I was hoping to get an actual, physical check in the mail but apparently they stopped doing that some time ago, ah well. Anyway, I’m taking this opportunity to remove all the ads. So much of the web these days is covered in ads and other cruft, and I’m happy that I’ll no longer be contributing to that upleasantness. This website has always been a labor of love and it shall remain that way. If you’d like to help support my silly endeavors, I’ve started a Ko-fi page. Thank you for reading.

Was looking to buy an hdmi switch for my TV and it’s kinda astonishing how terrible electronics look. Starting to understand why Steve Jobs was considered a radical visionary for saying “I think things should look good, instead of bad”

I wrote a bit about the Simpsons Season 1 DVD (likely the second DVD I ever owned, with Spaceballs being the first) which gave me an excuse to scan the booklet. God damn I love this episode description:

I suspect they might’ve been written by Matt Groening himself (he used to be a copywriter, he wrote the summaries of the Ullman shorts for the episode guide, he’s already writing the introduction for the set) but who knows, maybe that’s giving him too much credit. I feel like some guy at the DVD factory probably wouldn’t have the freedom to write so irreverently, though…

THINGS I’VE SEEN ON THE INTERNET LATELY

nobby's nuts

 

  • This Australian coin commemorating… Nobby’s Nuts? (↬ @punchhappiness)
  • I like this Oscars clip of the first time Best Animated Feature Film was a category… the concept of the animators having to make both winning/losing animations of their characters (will we ever see the animation of Jimmy Neutron winning?), Billy Crystal’s joke about a certain pair of producer brothers that’s only gotten better with age, Mike and Scully’s grimaces, the woman sitting next to Donkey just ecstatic over Shrek winning…
  • Some snobbish Hanna-Barbera expert declaring he shan’t be watching the cartoon Jellystone, not that he could anyway because he doesn’t even own a television (??? Then how is he watching all those classic cartoons???)
  • Simpsons conspiracy theories have been so prevalent that Reuters did a fact check of a TikTok video. Most of them I find funny but it always annoys me when I see “SIMPSONS PREDICTED EBOLA” in these things
  • Television Comics, the comic book about watching television

During the pandemic I’ve been making All Your Base memes on Twitter, which I’ve collected here.

Fascinating look into the mind of Mallard Fillmore. This must be that compassionate conservatism I’ve heard so much about.

Watched a bunch of Seinfeld recently, I hadn’t really seen much of it before… OK I knew “serenity now” was a Seinfeld thing, but I never knew the context until now and… what the hell. The catchphrase isn’t funny, the episode sucks, I get the impression people in the 90s were just like “well, I guess this is the thing we have to say now”

Happy that Zombies Ate My Neighbors is getting a rerelease on Switch… I never played it and know very little about it but I’ve always liked the “vibe” of this Zac Gorman comic:

RIP to Yahoo Answers. I went back to my profile and found some questions, which I’d pretty much forgotten about, and I’ve archived them here. I’m dreading the day the executives discover My Yahoo!, the last Yahoo service I use.
