The Simpsons

Thursday, October 10, 2019

The Simpsons (on FOX TV) started off as animated shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show In 1987. It was expanded to a 30 minute animated show (or, as I usually called it, the cartoon on 1989.) Matt Groening developed the skits & shows about a dysfunctional family, naming the characters after his family (except he kept his real name for his reel name). They live in a fictional town of Springfield. (Trivia : there are 34 cities & towns named Springfield in the US)
The parents were Homer, who worked at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, & Marge, a stay at home housewife. The eldest son is 10 year old Bart, daughter Lisa @ 8, & baby Maggie. There was a huge supporting cast. (More trivia : In 1989, a couple of episodes had Homer as the Springfield Isotopes mascot of the baseball team. Homer wanted the team to stay in Springfield & not move to Albuquerque , NM. it was just a throwaway name, but the good citizens of Albuquerque voted for a name change for the local team, The Cannons. Laughed my butt off - I donโ€™t follow sports, but I voted for the โ€˜topes, too! The Isotopes got 67% of the vote)



Landslide, Dixie Chicks, 2002



I took my love and I look it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snowcovered hills
Well the landslide brought me down



Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love
Can the child within my heart rise above
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides



Can I handle the seasons of my life
Well, I've been afraid of changing 'cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older



I'm getting older too
Well, well, I've been afraid of changing 'cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older


(Despite going through the seasonal & holiday changes, NO ONE AGED!)

I'm getting older, too
Well I'm getting older too
So, take this love and take it down
Yeah and if you climb a mountain and ya turn around



And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills
Well the landslide brought me down
And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills



Well maybe
Well maybe
Well maybe the landslide will bring you down
