Watch Dan Castellaneta chat about the inspiration behind some of his voices on The Simpsons.Watch Dan Castellaneta chat about the inspiration behind some of his voices on The Simpsons.

This is an interesting / fun video for anybody who happens to be a fan of The Simpsons. Dan Castelleneta does an alarmingly high number of voices on the show (somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-15 characters). Fun fact, you'll usually see a random Simpsons quote (less random now with the new design) in the header of GLM. Guess the episode, win a cookie.

Fifteen things about The Simpsons you may not have previously known about.Fifteen things about The Simpsons you may not have previously known about.

I had no idea that every Simpsons family member's middle name started with the letter J. Also it's nice to see that 'D'oh' is officially part of our English dictionary. Have you pulled a Homer today?

This particular Worth1000 contest reminds me of that Simpsons (Treehouse of Horror) episode where all of the advertising figures came to life.  'He came to life! Good for him.'

Presented by Homer Simpson on Late Night with David Letterman. Sadly, 'Cougar Town' is not a show about people getting attacked by giant cats.

Name: Vin (aka worky mcworksalot)
How Vin feels today: Systematic @ 1:46:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Continue plugging away at work-related projects and tasks then try to make time for actually working on things that are not work-related. All work and non-work play makes Vin uh... something something.

Stuff to do today:

  • Fix work issue number one
  • Backup code and all iterative versions of said code
  • Make some time for self to watch Treehouse of Horror on Hulu
  • Watch other Halloween-related shows for good measure
  • Wired has a handy list in case you need further inspiration

  • Nobody cares about my personal favs
