I just re-watched The Simpsons Movie last night. I can't say enough how much I love The Simpsons. It's easily the best thing that's ever been on TV. I thought the movie was great.... a 90 minute TV episode that didn't destroy the integrity of the franchise. Matt Groening is a huge hero of mine (and a major influence). I religiously clip his weekly comic strip "Life in Hell" every week and file it away in a very stuffed drawer. Last November I had the honor of meeting him briefly at the Alternative Press Expo. Great guy. Of course as usual I turned into a blubbering idiot when confronted with greatness but I guess I made myself understood well enough to get an autograph. I got to meet Jaime Hernandez and Dan Clowes as well. It was quite a day.
