Consistency

Hi folks. This blog post is all about consistency, which does not exist where I live and I will explain that here.

In recent weeks there has been talk of renovations going on within my apartment block. These include: putting in new windows, New balcony doors and new air-conditioners and heaters with controls. I was also told there would be classes starting up in the fall and other programming going on. Is this an apartment building or an institution?

What really bothers me is that I was told that the renovations would probably be starting in or around September and I have heard that the new windows are being put in today or soon after.

Also, I was told to my face, that I would be receiving emails as to when this would be happening and all I have are peices of paper in my door, which I can’t read. I have asked for emails before and not a message has come into my inbox about things going on within the apartment block. These are not stupid people we are dealing with here… we are dealing with people with a reasonable education and know what kind of people they are dealing with, who live in this building and others like it. Either someone has screwed up or I need to yell at them repeatedly until they get the message. I will not belittle anyone if they are immigrants or if English is their second language. However, this inconsistency and playing dumb has to stop. If I or anyone else asks to be emailed that should be itt… No pieces of paper in the door and instead, emails in my inbox about what is happening and when it is happening. It’s not fair to me or anyone else who may have a similar problem because of their disability. In my case, it is my blindness and most people know I am blind but some compare me to others in my building and that’s not right.

Anyway, I just had to get this off my chest and hopefully in the future, this will be corrected. If not, I will do what I can to make it known that I am not happy with how I am told important news about what is happening. It shouldn’t be hearsay… Rather, social media or maybe even email. Is that so hard?

Anniversary, Birthday And Death

Hi folks and welcome to another Simpsons Sunday. This week is the 8th anniversary of The Simpsons Movie tomorrow and we have some birthdays of guest starrs to talk about.

Unfortunately, I have to acknowledge the passing of the voice of Roger Meyers, Jr. Alex Rocco. His first appearance was in the Season 2 episode Itchy & Scratchy & Marge. After which, he did more animated TV appearances including during the first season of Family Guy. He also was in the cast of the movie The Godfather and had a roll in The George Carlin Show, as George O’Grady’s best friend Harry, whom George referred to in one episode as “a true friend and a pervert.” I don’t remember why but that stuck with me, for some stupid reason. Anyway, RIP Alex Rocco and thanks for entertaining many millions of people with your characters in the movies and television.

. Let’s get on with the birthdays first. The oldest and lone Canadian among them is: long time game show host and Worldvision spokesman Alex Trebek, turned 75 years old this week. He was born in Sudbury Ontario and lived in Ottawa for a time. He guest starred durring the Season 9 Christmas episode, where Marge attempted to win back all the money the family owed the entire town of Springfield on Jeopardy. This of course, was after Bart lied about a robber stealing all the Christmas presents.

The second oldest birthday boy this week is guest star Albert Brooks, who turned 68 this week. Both him and Jon Lovitz, who also turned another year older this week are both Saturday Night Live alumni, along with the late Phil Hartman. Albert Brooks of course guest atarred as the main antagonist in The Simpsons Movie, Russ Cargill and guest starred as various characters throughout the series. Most notably, Hank Scorpio in season 8’s You Only Move Twice and as Brad Goodman in Season 5’sBart’s Inner Child, along with James Brown. His most recent appearance was in the Season 26 episode Bully.

John Lovitz first guest starred in the Season 2 episode The Way We Was, as Marge’s boy friend Artie Ziff and in future seasons as other One time or minor characters. In the episode Homer Defined, he not only voices Aristotle “Arie” Amadopolis, owner of the Shelbyville nuclear plant. He asks Homer to give a speech and Homer saves the plant with his pushing of buttons and being lucky enough to push the right one first, despite not knowing which button he pushed.

Another thing about that episode is that Jon also voiced Mr. Avery Devereau in the television program that Marge Simpson was watching, before the breaking news about the meltdown at the Springfield nuclear plant. To me, he almost sounded like a character that Phil Hartman could’ve easily voiced equally as well. However, that’s just my own opinion.

As for The Simpsons Movie, I now have it on my iPod Touch and have watched it a few times ever since I bought it and downloaded it before Christmas. I actually prefer it to the descriptive video, which occasionally talks over the dialogue. For example: when Russ Cargill gives instructions to how many people should be guarding the outside of the dome and how they should be arranged, the voice talks over his instructions as he says: soft, tough, tough, tough, soft, tough and so on. I may not be quoting it as it is but I’m just making the point that the descriptive video is helpful but occasionally a hindrance. Sometimes it’s nice to just watch the movie as is and find out the details later.

Another thing is that there is a Simpsons Special on iTunes with Terry Gross, on her radio show Fresh Air. I think is also available as a podcast but I’m not sure. I must admit I don’t explore podcasts too much because they take up data on my iPhone. If all phone companies gave us unlimited data plans, then I would be off to the races and be like the kid in the candy store. However, I have what I have from iTunes and I’m happy with it for now.

Well, that’s about it for this week. As usual to end each Simpsons Sunday post, I recommend checking out Chris Ladesma’s blog. He is the Music Editor for The Simpsons and has been since day 1.

The Simpsons In Space

Hi folks and welcome to another Simpsons Sunday. This week I’m going to talk about going way out there into the milky way.

Sometimes you can tell who wrote an episode by what the content includes. In this case we will talk about outer space. Former Show Runner David Mirkin wrote the episode Deep Space Homer and co-wrote the Season 26 episode The Man Who Came To Be Dinner.

Something you may not know about him is that he, like myself are both ham radio operators. In my case, I am very much active in the hobby and in his case he let his license lapse in 1998. Unfortunately I never had the chance to work him because I was licensed in 2009 and in Canada, it is good for life. By the way, my call is VA3WXA and DAve’s call was WA3QIZ. Principal Skinner used that as his call sign, when he talked on his ham radio in the episode Homer’s paternity Coot.

I mention the ham radio aspect because most people who are astronauts may or may not also be hams. For example: one of Canada’s best known astronauts Chris Hatfield is in fact a licensed Pam. His call is VA3OOG and now he has branched out into music.

I mention all these things because talking to the people at the space station on ham radio is one way for kids to learn about the hobby. Maybe Dave Mirkin also did that back in the day… I don’t know and I’ve never asked him yet. However, he wrote the episode Deep Space Homer and that made me think about his past as a ham radio operator. In fact, before I got into the hobby, I actually listened to a channel where people would talk to people at the space station and it was cool but I was and am more interested in talking to people here on Terra firma, while they are in the midst of either going somewhere or doing something or just plain doing nothing.

I just think it is cool that The Simpsons would write an episode with Homer going into space. Also, that he has also talked on the ham radio bands in other episodes later on. Of course, tomorrow is the 45th anniversary of Apollo 11 and Neil Armstrong landing on the moon. Of course, his partner was Buzz Aldrin, who also guest starred in Deep Space Homer too. Oh, if you want to get even more in depth in to The Simpsons and ham radio, check the archives for a post I wrote either in April or May 2014 about it.

In the news, The Simpsons has been nominated again for a bunch of Emmy Awards. One of them is Dan Castellaneta and his role as a 10-year-old Homer in the episode Bart’s New Friend. That is my favourite episode of the last season and I certainly hope that The Simpsons win all the awards they are nominated for. I am so glad that Harry Shearer finally won one last year, for his roll as a young Mr. Burns.

Well that’s about it for this week. As usual to end each Simpsons Sunday post, I recommend checking out Chris Ladesma’s blog. He is the Music Editor for The Simpsons and has been since day 1.

Simpsons Characters You Would Like To Meet in Real Life

Hi folks and welcome to another Simpsons Sunday. This week it’s all about the characters you would like in real life. It is debatable but I think they are all pretty good people in Springfield, besides their obvious emotional flaws and other things that lessen their appeal to us regular folk.

Most people think Lisa Simpson’s voice is one of the most annoying and possibly the character too. I don’t think that either the voice or the character are really that bad. When you get right down to it she is an 8-year-old girl who happens to be the smartest and most passionate and compassionate citizen of Springfield. I believe that she has a good heart and just wants to make the world a better place, despite how emotional she can get and how whiny she is when she doesn’t get her way sometimes. I think in real life she would be a very nice person for the most part.

Bart is also not really necessarily bad all the time either. He’s just a 10-year-old boy who happens to have a need to be mischievous. If Bart didn’t help Lisa with saving the snakes from being wacked or was more like Beavis and Butthead or Eric Cartman I would agree with people saying he is just plain nasty. However, he does have some good in him and I’m sure if he got to know me he would be nice to me.

Homer isn’t that bad a guy either. Yes he can be mean sometimes to Bart and even Ned Flanders but he really is a nice friendly guy, who would do anything to help. Yes, Homer is an idiot but we love him and I’m sure that he would love us too. After all, both Homer and myself like donuts and especially chocolate. If he lived in Canada near a Tim Hortons he would be in heaven! I happen to live close to one and I go there to get my donut, sandwich, coffee and bagels with cream cheese from time to time. Plus, I use their Wi-Fi but that’s not the point. I think Homer would be a great guy to hang with, if you don’t mind his buffoonery and at times, his immaturity.

Now that I’ve done the family, let’s go onto other characters. Professor Frink is another character that would be great to meet in real life. Although, he can be a bit strange with his way of talking sometimes. As long as you don’t mind him making his frink noises “glaven” and such, he is fun to hang with. After all, he is a scientist and like to try and invent things. Maybe he can invent a car that drives itself. Oh, wait… Google is already doing that for him. Well, hopefully I can be a beneficiary of this invention. Anyway, Professor Frink is indeed, a lot of fun to hear on The Simpsons when he is a character in an episode and also would be cool to hang out with in real life.

Wralph Wiggum is another character that would be a nice boy to hang with in real life. He is a bit odd and so innocent but I think that is what makes him so popular as a character on the show. I love his lines such as “me fain english? That’s unpossible” and “you chu chu choose me?” among his classics. Wralph really would be a good kid to hang with if he wasn’t just a character and really existed.

Those of some of my favourite characters on the show that would be great to meet and hang with in real life. I know I missed some but I may go back to this topic again in the future.

In the news, Harry Shearer is not leaving The Simpsons after all. What ever the problem was, it has cleared up and we will hear: Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Smithers, reverend Lovejoy, Dr. Hibbert, Otto and his many other major and minor characters, as they were meant to be heard in his voice. It would have been interesting to figure who would replace him to voice his many characters though.

Well, that’s about it for this weeks post. in the mean time, I recommend checking out Chris Ladesma’s blog. He is the Music Editor for The Simpsons and has been since day 1.

My First Bus Trip In A Year

Hi folks and welcome to another Weather Wednesday blog post. This week it is all about my first planned out of town bus trip in a year or so. OK, at first glance this may not have anything to do with weather but it does have much to do with my involvement with Weatheradio Canada. I will explain as I go along in this post so, read on.

When I go somewhere on the bus or any kind of vehicular transportation I usually take a Weather Radio receiver with me, so I can check out all the channles for VHF openings and whether all transmitters are in good working order. After all, I do publish a newsletter every 3 months on Weather Radio, which both Environment Canada and the national Weather Service are behind.

The other reason I ttake such a receiver is so I can keep myself entertained, besides just listening to music and now, possibly watching The Simpsons on my iPod. I have always enjoyed listening to radio anyway, while going from city to city and that probably came from going to the school for the blind in Brantford Ontario, where most of us came from out of town and went home on Fridays and came back on Sunday evenings.

Anyway, for this trip I decided to go to Barrie Ontario, which I had been to before and could go where I usually went with some difficulty but not so much that I needed help getting from the bus terminal to my next destination. I of course, took my WX radio and some other things to keep me sain, while going both directions and just listened as we went from Toronto to Barrie, while my radio switched to the local Weatheradio Canada transmitter, located in Collingwood.

However, when I got to Barrie I had no idea that the entire transit system had been revised and there were newly named and numbered bus routes. This I found out after the fact, the next morning while just looking around on Wikipedia. I have found the information I need for my next trip to Barrie and will hopefully be much more able to find my bus to get where I want to go in Barrie.

When I went back home I was also able to make use of my newly acquired GPS app, which I have always used when I wanted to go somewhere in Toronto. I used it in Barrie too but I really wanted to use it on the way home, so I could keep track of where we were. I usually ask the driver to drop me off at a convenient store, at the corner of my street and they usually oblige. So, I use my app and was able to stay aware of where I was, despite GPS having to recalculate first. However, I made it back home and all the applicable Weatheradio Canada transmitters along the way worked just fine. I even heard the stations in Peterborough and Kawartha Lakes on the way to Barrie in the morning, as it was a clear night before with a good opening on VHF.

On an unrelated note, I also took an extra power pack with me to charge my iPhone and I certainly needed it then. My GPS ate up a lot of juice and well, I made sure to charge up the phone during the second half of my trip. I may purchase a second pack because I tried using my Crank Radio, which has a Solar panel. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to get into the sun as much as I would’ve liked to. The other problem is that it wouldn’t charge my iPhone because it isn’t powerfull enough to handle it, without ac power or even the power of the sun to charge up the radio and the phone. Ah well… I’ll figure something out by the time I make my next trip out of town.

That’s it for todays post. Talk to you again on Sunday.

Other Simpson’s Blogs

Hi folks and welcome to another Simpsons Sunday. Today it is all about other Simpsons blogs. I obviously blog about The Simpsons but that isn’t the only subject so it really isn’t a Simpsons only blog.

I do have links to other blogs at the end of each post here but I’ll describe each blog to you now. First, there is Chris Ladesma and his blog, which talks about his job as Music Editor on The Simpsons. I have only taken a look at some of his posts and I think they are really good. After all, he has a really cool job.

Also, Yeardley Smith has a blog called Gobbing Off, which is well, I guess a lot like mine but she has talked about herself more than I do. All though if you look through the archives of my blog you will find some posts that talk a bit about me and some views I have on such topics as: wishing I was a kid again and how to use Siri without it being a problem. If I hadn’t taken a look at her blog I probably wouldn’t have even considered starting this one.

The newest blog I am also subscribed to is The Springfield Shopper and it is a real Simpsons Blog, which is brought to us by one of the many Simpsons fan sites. Ever since I subscribed to it I have received emails on things happening with up coming episodes and the cast and crew. Yes, that is how I found out about Harry Shearer leaving The Simpsons and about most of Season 27, which will start airing on September 27th and will end some time in May 2016.

Okay,I mentioned Yeardley Smith earlier and on Friday she turned another year older. Of course, she is the voice of Lisa Simpson and also, a shoe designer and now of course, a blogger.

Another birthday this past week worth noting is Simpsons writer Ian macstone-Graham, who turned 56 on Friday. He has written or co’-written countless episodes and please, don’t ask me to try and dig up all of them because there are so damn many.

As usual to end each Simpsons Sunday post, I recommend checking out Chris Ladesma’s blog. He is the Music Editor for The Simpsons and has been since day 1.

My 5 Favourite Lisa Simpsons Episodes

Hi there and welcome to a Simpsons Sunday post on Friday. This is all about my favourite Lisa Simpson episodes and it is a list of my top 5 episodes in which Lisa is a prominent character. I should also mention right off the bat that today is the voice of Lisa Simpson herself, Yeardley Smith’s birthday today. It was she who inspired me to start this blog and if I hadn’t read Gobbing Off, which is her own blog, I don’t know if I would have even thought of publishing my own. Thanks for the inspiration Yeardley and also, keep up the great work with all you do.

Now, without further ado, here are my top five Lisa Simpson episodes. You should be aware that these episodes are in no particular order because I don’t want to singlepisode any episode out as The crème de la crème. However, there is one that stands out above all for me and we will get to that one later.

Moaning Lisa is an important episode in which we discover that she likes playing the blues on her saxophone. We also meet one of her greatest idols Bleeding Gums Murphy. He teaches her that ?the blues aint about feeling better, it’s about making other people feel worse.”

This episode also shows us her compassion for others in the world, who are worse off than her or her family and friends. It’s sad that Bleeding Gums was killed off but at least he lives on in a picture on Lisa’s wall.

Lisa’s First Word shows us how Bart and Lisa were is 2-year-olds and toddlers respectively. We see Bart resenting Lisa as a part of the family and trying to send her away, literally, after she is born and Bart says to her “I hate you.” This is because she wrecked everything with him, Marge and Homer. He says he’s going to run away and just as he starts to leave she says “Bart” as her first word. Bart immediately changes his tune and tells Homer and Marge that Lisa can talk. Bart gets Lisa to say Mommy and David Hasselhoff. When Homer says “can you say Daddy?” Lisa says “Homer” and Homer says “no sweetie, Daddy.” She repeats “Homer” and Homer says “d’oh” then her and Bart laugh together. I actually like it when Bart and Lisa are having fun and teaming up with each other, as apposed to fighting all the time and yes… I think they should always hug.

Krusty Gets Busted is not actually a Lisa episode as such but it does show her true intelligence coming out. Bart and her try to find out why Krusty The Clown was framed for a Kwik-E-Mart robbery, by someone who was dressed like him and sounded like him, when Homer saw the crime being perpetrated. In this episode Bart actually admits to Lisa that she is smarter than him and then go and solve the mystery of the robbery and of course, we find out that it was Sideshow Bob who commited it. This is after Bart notices the size of the robbers feat compared to Krusty’s feat, which are quite small. Of course, this episode also leads to such episodes as Sideshow Bob Roberts, where both Bart and Lisa reverse Sideshow Bob’s fortunes as the winner of the mayoral election, fraudulently. However I don’t think she will save her brother from being killed by him in the up coming Treehouse Of Horror episode, where Sideshow Bob finally kills BART, all though it is non canon.

Lisa’s Weading is a flash forward episode, in which she goes to an amusement park with her family. She goes to the psychic booth and the woman uses Tara cards, to predict her future almost husband, British born Hugh Parkfield. This episode could very well be a hint of what was to come a season later, when Lisa becomes a vegetarian. Both her and Hue say they are humourless in their vegetarianism and can both read books quickly. Their marriage was called off because Hugh wanted to leave her family in Springfield, while they went back to England. This is despite Lisa having opinions on her family and home town. The announcement was made just before Maggie began to sing Amazing Grace.

At first I didn’t like this episode but after I while of watching it I grew to like it. However, I don’t like to hear Lisa be disappointed. Oh, this leads me to my final and fifth episode Lissa’s Substitute. This actually has become my favourite episode, with the others having no particular rank in how much I like them.

In this episode Lisa meets her substitute teacher Mr. Bergstrom who turns out to be a lot different than Ms. Hoover in that he actually inspires his students to learn and doesn’t droan on and on to the class. Lisa takes a liking to him and well, develops a crush on him. She tries to see him away from school and Homer ruins it for her. So, she asks her Mom if she can invite Mr. Bergstrom to dinner. Marge says yes and it almost happens but Ms. Hoover returns from thinking she had lime disease and Lisa is crushed.

She tries to find Mr. Bergstrom at his apartment and she is informed that he is taking the train to Capital City. She gets to the train station just in time for the train to leave, with him on it. She tells him “you can’t go… you’re the best teacher I’ll ever have.” He tells her that other good teachers will come along and he gives her the note saying “you are Lisa Simpson.”

At home, Homer is clueless as to why Lisa is moaping about and she calls Homer a baboon and runs up to her room crying. Marge tells Homer to go up to her room and be the male roll model in Lisa’s life that Mr. Bergstrom also tells him to be, earlier in the episode. He goes up and see’s Lisa crying and has difficulty in convaying his feelings to his daughter. However, he says “I can fix your dall house for you” and starts to act like a monkey, which makes Lisa giggle and she appologizes for calling father a baboon and they hug and kiss.

On the other plot point in this episode, Bart looses to Martin Prinse as elected class president and homework cheers Bart up by reminding him that, Martin will probably never get to do things such as throw out the first pitch ata baseball game and says “let the baby have his bottle.” Bart says “thanks monkey man” and Homer goes off and finds Maggie without her pacifier and hands it to her.

This episode is not just a Lisa episode but it shows how Homer can not just be a mean buffoonish oaf but also deeply cares about his family and in particular, his children. He helps Bart almost become class president and cheers Lisa up after her most favorite teacher leaves for another substitute teaching job. Is it any wonder that this episode appears on the Season 2 iTunes collection and the iTunes compilation Homer Knows Best? I like it because it shows the soft side of The Simpsons and I also like it when Homer is forced to do anything for his little girl, in order for her to be happy. In this case, be Lisa’s male roll model that he should have been before Mr. Bergstrom came along.

Also as I said earlier, I don’t like it when Lisa is upset but it does make for good drama, to balance out the laughter, when needed. I think if Lisa was a real life person she would be a nice kind person, who has strong feelings on certain issues and would probably temper some of it as she grew older. However, as a character she is great as she is, even with the tears and being terrorized by BART. This also is despite that I think that both Bart and Lisa really do love each other and would do anything for them both to be happy.

Well, that’s it for today’s post. Except, I have something to say to Yeardley Smith.

Thank you very much for inspiring me to start blogging and even to go on both Twitter and Facebook. Without either social media site I wouldn’t have ever had the courage to do what I’m doing now and would have had no reason to put out my own feelings on why things are what they are, whether it is about The Simpsons or any of my favourite bands. When I was younger, I wanted to be remembered for something good and I think that this may be it. I may not have a Wikipedia article on me but I am happy with what I am doing now, despite that I am totally blind and had to learn how to do this on my own. Even working with the iPhone was done independently and as a tool for doing everything for me it is serving me well.

Anyways, if you are reading this, thanks a bunch for showing me that blogging isn’t really that hard to do. I don’t have photo’s in it because I simply don’t have any pictures on my phone that I know of that are good quality selfies or general photo’s. Oh, I would be remiss if I didn’t wish you a happy birthday and I hope it is a great one for you.

That’s about it for todays post. Talk to you again on Sunday.
