is on now. Ace.
i like the sonic youth poster
(sorry about the hijack)
The best band ever on the Simpsons.
It has to be Sonic Youth right?
can you count Devo who are on a poster in the geeks room when Homer goes to coolege?
because the Smashing Pumpkins and REM were both on :D
I really think Mark E Smith should be on there one day- smashing up Rick Gervais' face of course
yes it is. What's the Sonic Youth one? I've never seen it!
are they in this one? I have a vague memory...
eating the giant water melon they stole from Peter Frampton.
When MES runs out of people to join the Fall he could have a cartton backing band!
I can't recall the sonic youth one -I must have seen it-I know yo la tengo re-did the theme for the hippy one
they've been on.
Just swaaaaaaaay along to Billy Corgan.
quit jiving me, turkey
you've got to sass it
I never knew Mr. Burns was my boss. Explains a lot...
sorry I like that line
Homer Simpson, smiling politely.
"Welcome to Dick Cheney's America, lisa"
that's one of my favourites whilst we're quoting happy
Don't know about favourite though. I really like the bit in the All You Can Eat episode where the lawyer's asking marge in court:
Lawyer: What did you do after leaving the restaurant?
Marge: We drove around looking for another all you can eat fish restaurant.
Lawyer: And what did you do when you couldn't find one?
Marge: We went fishing.
Lawyer: Does this sound like the actions of a man who's had 'all he can eat'?
version of the theme tune at the end is ace too.
purely for having a character in it called 'Roy'
And I always imagine Mike Diver as Poochie even though i've met him (and like him)
is the one where Marge & Homer go to the marriage guidance retreat on Cat Fish Lake. The Flanders' are there also, and when it's Ned's go to say what their problems are he goes "Well, sometimes, when Maude can't find her own copy, she unerlines passages in MY Bible!" and Hommer mutters "hmph, lucky you don't keep guns in the house".
and they rebuild his house has the funniest sequence in it when he looks around his 'reconstructed' house and it turns into a surrealist nightmare- pure gold
the best band ever to have been on the show, but Yo La Tengo once did the simpsons theme over the credits in a psych-rock stylee with Homer singing the lyrics to uptown girl over the top. That was ace. Even though the episode that preceded it wasn't all that.
and then gets overcome with memories of Homer saying romantic things in the car, only to find it's actually Homer in the backseat saying "I'm gonna be a daddy?" through a loo roll, is the best moment ever.
I love that episode.
On the Simpsons? This picture is on their myspace...
I think they just played at the Matt Groening-curated ATP? Maybe?
where homer goes to new york and tries to buy "Kal Kalash"
foreigner: you want kal kalash?
homer: Ok i'll have one bowl
foreigner: no bowl. stick. stick!
Homer: you got anything to wash that down?
foreigner: mountain dew or crab juice
Homer: eughh...I'll take a crab juice
Homer: You got a mens room in there?
foreigner: No men's room. only kal kalash
since pre-9/11, i suppose for obvious reasons.
this saddens me, as it's one of my favourites..
as is the one this thread is about.
"my kids think you're the greatest, and thanks to your gloomy music, they've finally stopped dreaming of a future i can't possibly provide."
"well, we try to do our bit"
showed the NY episode recently.
