The Simpson’s Did It: Examining Their New Intro
Last Sunday, The Simpsons did something they havenâ€™t done in 19 years. (Insert snarky â€œWhat, actually be funny?â€ response here.) They significantly changed their intro, not just the quick â€œsitting on the couchâ€ punchline they change every week. Why did they do that? To take advantage of the new HD format, of course. Hereâ€™s the new one if you missed it:
While the basic concepts remain the same, eagle-eyed viewers will notice a bunch of subtle changes throughout, almost as if the creators are saying, â€œThis is all the stuff you were missing before HD came around.â€ Hereâ€™s a few changes just from the first 30 seconds: (a) the three-eyed black crow flying through the titles; (b) Ralph getting beaned by the head of Jebediah Springfield; (c) â€œKrusty â€¦ Now Doing Funeralsâ€; (d) Bart landing on Barney; (e) Lenny and Carl changing the â€œDays Without An Accidentâ€ chart, with ironic results; and (f) a clear view of the products on the shelves of the grocery store. Again, thatâ€™s just from the first 30 seconds.
So, what do you all think? Stop any other changes from the rest of it? My own opinion is that while itâ€™s fun and a nice nod towards their fandom, the best Simpsons intro ever will always be the amazing live-action version.
Do girls leave you confused as to whether or not they like you?
Let's face it. Girl's don't make it easy for you. She will often send mixed signals leaving you unable to tell if she is being friendly or flirty. If you read her signals wrong you risk rejection and embarrassment. Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
Here is a simple and innocent move that will instantly tell you if you're in the friend zone, or if she's waiting for you to kiss her.
