Great DVD buy

I’m not one to advertise for certain stores but I will say that I found an excellent DVD buy for only $20 this weekend at a Jamestown retailer.

Simpsons Season 9 for only $20 bucks… right?!

Those in Jamestown may not know this but I am a diehard Simpsons fan. I’m surprised more people in this area don’t follow suit, with this being the birth place of composer, Alf Clausen.

That’s a feather that should be worn in this town’s hat for many years to come.

Anyways, when I say diehard, I mean like I’ve seen every episode, besides the new ones at least twice, at least.

Sometimes I’ll drop a Simpsons quote and people look at me weirder than usual. When some friends come visit, or when I return home, we can rock the trivia game for hours on end. It’s a great road tripping game when headed out on those long drives for ski trips.

I was a little disappointed to find out it does not run on syndication here, because since like 1993 it’s been syndicated back home, giving me ample opportunities to enjoy satirical humor at its finest.

The show created parody in cartoons, long before Family Guy or anything else.

I know English teachers who value the show for its parody aspect, but then again some English teachers may be more out there then me.

Most diehard fans can tell you the finest seasons are from 6-10. This is why I feel lucky to have 9. Now of course I know people out of state with every available season, so I guess I got some catching up to do.

I have some stuff I have to give away; best Simpsons quote wins some swag, I need at least five entries.

Now to prove my true geek, here’s one of my favorite season 9 clips. Also, listen for Alf’s composing.

  1. And now, in the spirit of the season: start shopping. And for every dollar of Krusty merchandise you buy, I will be nice to a sick kid. For legal purposes, sick kids may include hookers with a cold.

  2. Ohhhh an excellent Tree House of Horror quickie, with a fake Bob Dole and a you tube link with Spanish subtitles, some one out there can top this…

  3. Your guilty consciences may make you vote Democratic, but secretly you all yearn for a Republican president to lower taxes, brutalize criminals, and rule you like a king!

  4. Alright satire is great and all but we are getting into a political area Sideshow Bob, even though it’s a direct quote it doesn’t beat the previous two.

  5. Well, he’s kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace “accidentally” with “repeatedly” and replace “dog” with “son.”
