I have many nerdy proclivities, and one of them is following animator Don Hertzfeldt on Twitter (even if his name doesn’t quite ring a bell, you probably know his stuff). So when he tweeted the following on Sunday afternoon:

Not trying to brag or be a jerk or anything, but I haven’t seen a new episode of the Simpsons in about a bajillion years, but this couch gag got me to watch last night’s episode and…ouch. It was pretty bad, you guys. Is it always like this now? I feel like the Simpson family accounted for about 2% of the show while they beat the “Krusty lost his groove” plot into the ground for the umpteenth time. Anyway, let the “their old stuff was better” mega-thread commence!
EXTRA-NERDY POST SCRIPT: if you haven’t seen any of his other short films, they are all really wonderful, personal, surreal little/epic sights to behold. Each one of them, really. I would highly recommend checking out “The Meaning of Life” and his semi-recent feature-length It’s Such a Beautiful Day.
