I wholeheartedly support Four’s decision to mix in really awesome old episodes of The Simpsons amongst the crappy newer episodes. Bart sells his soul, you say? Perfect.
Homer: That’s not how I remember it.
Joanna Newsom is playing here in Budapest on the 29th. I’m sort of tempted to go, what with all the critical praise and the fact that people I love positively adore her. But honestly I never really got her, and she scares and confuses me.
As always, in a time of existential angst, I turn to a quote from The Simpsons: ‘I used to be with it, but then they changed what “it” was. Now what I’m with isn’t it, and what’s “it” seems weird and scary to me.’

“The wars of the future will not be fought on the battlefield or at sea. They will be fought in space, or possibly on top of a very tall mountain. In either case, most of the actual fighting will be done by small robots. And as you go forth today remember always your duty is clear: To build and maintain those robots.” - The Commandant, The Simpsons, ‘The Secret War of Lisa Simpson’
