The Simpsons and NOFX

June 25, 2007 at 2:54 pm 9 comments

There is a room in our house which goes by the name “The Simpsons Room”.  It’s main purpose is to house my husband’s collection of Simpsons figurines.  Even though all the figurines are sequestered in the closet at the moment (they were moved when the room was painted), that is still how we refer to that room.  For example:

“Have you seen the plyers?”

“Yes, it’s in the Simpsons room.”

 
Unopened Simpsons figurines, Simpsons games, Simpsons posters, and then two large bins full of opened figurines and their accessories.  See notes on Flickr for details.

Across the hall is my home office.  It dons hunter green walls, pictures of Kurt Vonnegut, an elevation cross section of the Appalachian Trail (sections I’ve finished have been highlighted), a picture of my grandfather from WWII, a number of dog hiking pictures and…. about 20 CDs from my favorite band, NOFX.

Often Sean and my interests are pretty different, but here a video (not by me) manages to fuse two of our loves together– the Simpsons and NOFX.

P.S.  The NOFX song is called “The Man I Killed” and can be found on the Wolves in Wolves Clothing album.

    Anyone want to take bets on how long the clip lives before the copyright gods get to it?

    Loved the Minor Threat album take-off!

    It seems to have skated by a while. I think it was originally uploaded September 2006.

    I just did a google search for nofx and simpsons to see what came up out of curiosity. Its funny you guys mentioned the copyright issue, i was wondering that myself when i uploaded it. I’ll be sure to let you know if anyone comes bursting though my windows late at night.

    But glad you guys enjoyed the video, I never really thought anyone would even think twice about it

    @mike g- You did see that NOFX links to the video from their official website, yes? That’s how I found your video in the first place! How cool is that?

    To whoever made the comment about copyright infringement, the video just got taken down off youtube two or three days ago. Had a pretty strong run for a while.
