I am a grape
I can't find them anymore
NOW does anyone have a link to those weird animated simpsons episodes on youtube that are terrifying
dunno what to say about these really
than The Simpsons of the last ten years.
i watched the one where lisa has that really good teacher today, and it made the current simpsons universe seem completely tragic in comparison.
like...when homer sits lisa down and says...'honey, you're gonna meet lots of interesting people in your life that you will love...but all the people i love are under this roof'. or something similar.
well, it made me think about lisa going to college and having a great time and meeting a boy and staying up late listening to miles davis and riffing about poetry and being a sort of peggy olsen type character gradually thriving in a new world that she is initially completely unfamiliar with.
and then i thought, but actually, lisa is just destined to be forever stuck as 9 years old living out increasingly wacky and disparate narratives with little heart and soul....or extended historical skits where she has to prance around as cleopatra or some shit...or as an innocent bystander to another celebrity guest... and even if she is allowed to grow, it's just as a glimpse to the future to see her becoming president or something equally idiotically grand when she probably just wants to be a college professor in feminist literature at yale or something.
and for a split second i thought about this and it seemed so tragic that lisa is stuck forever in an increasingly depressing and unfunny simpsons universe but then i got over it because i'm not really bothered about the simpsons but if i was id want that shit to stop right now.
oh cool. that's ok then.
sorry about that mate. you have to be careful with stuff like that i guess. we'll be dedicating entire public holidays to fictional beings next if we're not careful.
Just think about that for a moment. Actual time.
