    The new Simpson theme in pictures

    The Simpsons made the switch to HD last Sunday and celibrated the occasion with a new opening theme. It was a long version that proabably will not be seen that often. The super-fast scan was a staple of the original theme and it was updated for season 20 with more modern characters. It has almost every character, but where is Ned? And Mrs. Krabappel? Read More

  • Simpsons get a ‘Mapple’ store with MyPods, a Brainiac Bar, MyCubes, and announcements from Steve Mobs

    Here’s the Simpsons’ take on Apple – the basic premise being that the Springfield Mall gets a “Mapple” store and everyone buys MyPods, MyPhones, and MyCubes. Everything’s pretty realistic, even down to the fine details like Steve Mobs (get it, “Jobs” but with an “M” instead?) urinating on each MyPhone before it gets shipped out and… Read More

  • Why is Hulu more valued by advertisers than YouTube?

    Something’s wrong with YouTube, and it looks like Hulu stands to benefit. YouTube, as you’re all painfully aware, is primarily comprised of short videos of guys falling off their skateboards (embedded here), dudes playing video game songs on the piano and illegal Seinfeld clips. Those types of videos aren’t attractive to advertisers. That may explain why YouTube, which had… Read More

    Simpsons ride opens at Universal Studios Hollywood

    A new Simpsons-themed ride opened at Universal Studios in Hollywood on Monday and travel site Jaunted.com seems to indicate that it’s a worthwhile stop on your list of things to do if you’re in the area. The ride itself is a motion-simulated affair “full of major lifts and falls, twists and turns and a little bit of water.” Hit the jump for a video. Read More

    It's about time: Duff and Flaming Moe energy drinks

    At Flaaay-ming Moe’s (let’s all go to Flaming Moe’s) — Hot damn, here’s a pair of Simpsons-themed energy drinks. One’s a Duff can, one’s a Flaming Moe’s can. The Duff can’s a full 12-ounces of power, while the Flaming Moe version comes in a Red Bull-esque 8.4-ounce can. Neither contains alcohol, though. Just pure jitter. They’re… Read More

    Simpsons game developers say Rockstar 'spazzed out'

    Geek fight! Apparently some people at Rockstar (the company behind the Grand Theft Auto series) “spazzed out like little babies” at a parody in the new Simpsons game where Bart wants to play a game called Grand Theft Scratchy. “They’re supposed to be rockstars…That’s not a big Rockstar move, to be afraid of The Simpsons making fun of their game,”… Read More

    Dude Rants About AT&T's Shoddy Service: What If It Ran Our Highwayszomg?

    LOL! That’s the only thing I can type, let alone say, after reading this delightful little piece envisioning a world in which AT&T ran the highways. You know, the real highways for cars, not the information super++ one. It’s really, really funny. Gems include: • AT&T would make horn tones available for $3.99. No transfer of music from the car’s jukebox to its… Read More

  • World Of Warcraft Gets Simpsonized

    Found this on a random, late-night YouTube journey. It’s eight minutes of dorked out laughs with that Simpsons touch of humor. Marge and Bart end up playing together in an MMORPG that closely resembles WoW. Good laughs. Read More

    Just as we got done telling you about the new Simpsons game due out this year, Microsoft goes and spills the beans on a new limited-edition 360 due out this summer. This banana-yellow Simpsons 360 is the coolest looking console to date. Not only does it go along with the Simpsons’ movie release, but it has minor touches that really show the detail put into the console. Like… Read More

  • Fox Sues the Little Guy Over Simpsons and 24

    on YouTube and did what any self-respecting media company would do these days—it sued. But they’re not suing YouTube. They’re subpoenaing the company to release the name of the offending subscriber. The “24” episodes in question actually appeared on YouTube before their primetime Jan. 14 premiere on the Fox broadcast network, which spread four hour long episodes… Read More

  • Samsung Simpsons Phones: Little, Yellow, Different

    We got a chance to see the Simpsons phones in the wild. It’s all clamshell all the time over there with an A717 for Cingular, an M500 for Sprint, and a U740 for Verizon ensconced in glass cases and colored yellow as Homer’s sun-kissed pate. The phones will be available during the film launch in July. Read More
