Ha!

In the Green Day scene a Duff Blimp is floating by in the background with the message "Binge Responsibly".

I sadly have to deal with a slow computer so I couldn't see the trailer.

HOWEVER, I did notice a Jp. site from the new site's menu...it's not up, but it does give me hope that they'll release it there. Just not in the initial international launch, sadly.

I think it's interesting that The Simpsons opens at the same time as Transformers in the UK.

I'd have thought, being two of the biggest of the year, they'd want to keep their distance a bit more.

That's too bad, cuz Simpson's doesn't stand a chance against Transformers. It will probably be a very distant second.

I found out what the mystery character from the action figure is...

Are you ready?

A mutant squirrel with 5 times the number of eyes as Blinky.

Well, that sign did say "No Dumping"...

Only like 7000 7-11's around here, but hopefully it'll get some local coverage so I can narrow it down...

63rd St. is kind of far away, but fear not...a picture I will take.

We might need to do a Zoner pictures thread, ala the R-2 mailboxes.


How come none of this cool shit ever comes to Portland?


Never mind... don't answer that...

Yeesh I did a quick search...63rd street isn't in Chicago. Its in a suburb of Chicago like 30 minutes away. Why the hell would they do something this cool OUTSIDE of Chicago? It makes no sense.

Hurray! Another reason for LS to post pictures. Um.. I mean, yay Simpsons! :D

Why the hell did Henderson, NV get one? I'm sure the tumbleweeds will love it.

HEY!

Henderson is basically Vegas, which means Vegas got one and we rule so why not. I need the address, me need squishy.

I so know where that one is, I drove by there the other night but didn't see the decorations.

I will try and stop by and take some crappy phone pics this week.

There is a certain absolution to being able to see an object or a place that you have only before witnessed on Television or in the theater. When I went to see the Black Peale from Pirates of the Caribbean I was as giddy as a 4 year old with new Spiderman underpants--and I don’t even care for that series much. But to see those black sails lap against the gentle wind outside of a box on the screen was truly something to behold. On the other end, when in Las Vegas I went to the Hilton Hotels Star Trek Experience. That was worth every penny spent, and man did I get loaded on booze at Quarks bar even before the morning became the afternoon.
Image
<b>The Drink: Warp Core Breach. The menu says 4 to 6 people. The only ones who drank it are the ones shown, Im on the left.</b>
While inebriated, I was still able to keep my bladder under control, never once releasing golden drips of glee when I saw Kirks horrid uniform from <b>Star Trek: The Motion Picture</b>. However, when I stepped onto the bridge of <i>the</i> <i>Enterprise</i> and saw the glow of mahogany interlaced with the user control panels, the huge view screen and kick ass captains chair; I nearly became incontinent and really wouldn’t have cared.This leads us from the past, to the future, to the present--in a place we could never visit even with Quantum Physics on our side. The world of the Simpsons.

In Burbank California there is a Seven-11 store that has redressed itself into a fully functioning Kwik-E-Mart from Springfield. I arrived just after screening Herzog’s <b>Rescue Dawn</b> and was surprised that there was a line to wait in before you could step inside. So I stepped into the queue and asked they guy in front of me if they had run off any Shelbyville folks, he chuckled and later I swear I heard the joke echoed a couple times around the store. Here is my report in pictures, taken one Wednesday afternoon when all the Pink donuts with sprinkles were gone, and somewhere in the distance I could hear Bleeding Gums Murphy wail on the Sax-o-mophone with no Frosted Krusty-O's to be found.

You are just off the Mono-rail...here we go

Actually, that's the second one of those I've found that have had pieces missing from them. The other one I saw had both of Homer's arms missing.

We might have to take this one to a Cage Match. Why would he be holding a candy box like that? I assume they're all watching TV, so...

You do remember the time he mistook an ice cream sandwich for the remote, right?

PostPosted: Mon Jul 09, 2007 1:17 pm

Fine, but I still think it's just a remote. If it was a candy box or an ice cream sandwich, wouldn't it be more apparent?

I'm pumped for this now. The latest trailer with Spider-Pig had me in stitches, and it'll be good to see if they can reverse the field of suck from the last few years.
