WCB #112: Yellow, no, orange!
In honor of the new Simpsons Movie, Katie and Puddy, this week’s Weekend Cat Blogging hosts, have declared an optional “Simpsons” or “yellow” theme.
We are sadly lacking in Simpsons figures in these parts (a rather glaring oversight, considering we live in Matt Groening’s home town), and yellowâ€¦ well, I’m afraid we don’t do well with yellow either.
We do, however, have an abundance of orange, and since orange is just one small step away on the color wheel (and the Simpsons are a rather orangey yellow to begin with), we’ve decided that our theme for the weekend will be orange.
See, here’s Ahriman in all his orangey glory.
And here he is again.
And since he is so keen on the color orange (and keen on locating entirely inappropriate places to lounge), here is Ahri, demonstrating the design concept, Orange on Orange. Todd Oldham would be proud.
Now, since we do reside in the hometown of Matt Groening, I would be remiss if I didn’t share two tidbits of trivia.
Item the second: Years later, my brother lived next door to the house Matt Groening grew up in. You might think that the opening sequence in The Simpsons — wherein the entire family bolts through a door at the back of the garage and into their living room — is entirely made up. You’d be wrong. There’s a door at the back of the real garage, and last time I checked it had a wooden sign over it, emblazoned with the name “Homer.”
So there you go. All that home town love and trivia and still they put Springfield in Vermont! Hrrrmph.
