Crap TV Flashbacks: The Simpsons on Tracy Ullman Show

The Simpsons didn’t always look like they did today. They weren’t always a 30 minute sitcom either. WAy back before they were a sitcom they showed up on The Tracy Ullman Show in the form of shorts. The Tracy Ullman Show was one of the thousand sketch shows over the years, but will forever be known as the launching pad for The Simpsons.

If you are a big Simpsons fan you have undoubtedly seen the very early stuff. It was terrible. Every voice of the characters sounded like they were a narcoleptic the few seconds before their 20th nap of the day. It was so bad that had to be intentional. I’d rather sell city mini stroller than watch it again.

Of course the show still got big even with it being this awful back then. 500+ episodes later and it is still running weekly. The longest animated series of all-time in prime time.

Sheeple

One of the most absurd responses you will see online has to be when someone calls a group of people “Sheeple”. Never is the one saying it someone that has any sort of actual knowledge about anything. Their entire existence in the conversation is to pretend they opened their eyes, man.

Anytime someone says “Sheeple” you can immediately assume that they are in fact an idiot. You believe terrorists actually perpetrated 9/11? Preposterous to those that “really know what happened”. You are nothing but a sheep. Aliens aren’t among us you say? You are a goddamn sheep. Shadow government isn’t running the entire world? A few men in a smokey room aren’t pulling all the strings? Only sheeple believe such nonsense.

These are the type of people that think just coming up with some insane theory is actually fact. They have never heard of, or attempt to use the scientific method to prove anything. Their “evidence” is psychedelic philosophy based on being highly depressed, or simply nuts. They are these people. The worst part is that they consider themselves “skeptics”, although they never actually do any of the research that a skeptic is supposed to do. Mired in depression usually, they fantasize about being watched by the government because they “know something”. Unemployed morons are the key to toppling the Bilderberg Group folks. Armed with nothing but an internet connection and a forum where they talk to other conspiracy nuts they call YOU a sheep for actually checking up on their claims. Have evidence that contradicts theirs? Shut up sheep.

Ice Cube’s “Good Day”

Forgot to post this a few weeks back. This was always one of my favorite songs growing up. Ice Cube “It Was a Good Day”. (video below). I always preferred the Bootlegs and B-Sides version that showed up on the single of “Check Yo’ Self”, but this is the MTV version uncensored.

Anyways, a few weeks back this guy posted his formula for proving what day it was that was Ice Cube’s “Good Day”. There is no room for debate here. The day JANUARY 20, 1992. Got me some stainless steel sinks.

Ice Cube starred in the film “Boyz in the hood” that released late Summer of 1991, but was being filmed mid-late 1990 early 1991 and Ice Cube was busy on set filming the movie Jan 18 1991 too busy to be lounging around the streets with no plans. Ladies and Gentlemen..
The ONLY day where:
Yo MTV Raps was on air
It was a clear and smogless day
Beepers were commercially sold
Lakers beat the SuperSonics
and Ice Cube had no events to attend was…

JANUARY 20 1992
National Good Day Day
