The Simpsons: An Uncensored, Unauthorized History

Title: The Simpsons: An Uncensored, Unauthorized History
Author: John Ortved
Publisher: Faber & Faber
It happens to me every year; I decide to watch a new Simpson’s episode on Sunday night hoping the show has finally turned a tide towards what it used to be.  Sadly it never happens, and I’m left distraught over the fall from glory this series has had.  What’s amazing is that there are now more terrible seasons than actual good ones.  An outsider might question why I’m still a fan despite so many terrible seasons, but the reason is those early episodes were so well made that I became a fan for life.

To help me better understand the creation of the show and why its quality has gone awry, I decided to read The Simpsons: An Uncensored, Unauthorized History.  The book was written by John Ortved, a long time Simpsons fan.  In writing the book, Ortved interviewed many people who worked on the show and also did extensive research.  The interesting thing is the main creator’s of the show refused to be interviewed by him, though admittedly I didn’t see it as much of a problem.

Air Jordan 1 Super Mario Bros.

To celebrate their 30th anniversary, I think Jordan Brand should release a special edition Air Jordan 1 featuring Super Mario Bros.  Both the Air Jordan 1 (unofficially) and Super Mario Bros. were released in 1985, and I have been a fan of both Nintendo and Nike since then.  Beyond sharing a birthday together they also share a name; Super Mario was initially called “Jumpman”, the same name of Jordan Brand’s logo.
