Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Authors Jonathan Franzen, Gore Vidal, Tom Wolfe, and Michael Chabon were all in a really funny Simpsons tonight. Many will say ye olde Simpsons has gone on too long, but if it can still be this funny on occasion I'd like to see it make it to 20 years at least. I think the writers probably get into these episodes with authors, and it was funny seeing Thomas Pynchon (paper bag-head) on the writers' panel even though he wasn't in the episode. When it comes to the author episodes, I actually enjoy the ubiquitous celebrity appearances, which are normally tiresome.
The season has been hit and miss, I'd say. I thought the halloween episode, for example, was kinda flaccid. But there should be more positive things said about the Simpsons; the negative has been repeated enough. What a great show.
