News: Shearer Keeps Singing and SCSU Analyzes Simpsons

Simpsons News — Posted 04 Aug, 2003 by Scott

Hey fans, some news you may be able to use to start this week off for you. First off an article about Harry Shearer. Harry does the voice of such characters as Burns, Smithers and Skinner. But, before ever doing the Simpsons did you know Harry was part of the band Spinal Tap? Not only that but Harry still keeps is singing in swing with such movies as "A Mighty Wind" which is currently out in theatres. Read all about him as well as who his favorite Simpsons character is and his new projects he's working on by going Here.

Next up we have another story about yet another college adapting the Simpsons into their semester program. Southern Connecticut State University is opening a class this semester which will analyze the Simpsons culture. The professor turns to postmodern media theory for the answer. She will have students analyze how "The Simpsons" uses parody, satire and humor to reflect the changing nature of our culture and society. "You see pessimism, cynicism, apathy, but also glimmers of hope," Dellinger-Pate said. We never had anything like this at our university! Well any of you who don't attent SCSU, you can read more about this class by going Here.

So when Homer Simpson exclaimed, "When will I learn? The answer to life’s problems aren’t at the bottom of a bottle, they’re on TV!" he might have been on to something.
