An interesting article about how they found Banksy  and life imitating art.

How did “The Simpsons” manage to track down Banksy, the pseudonymous British artist, and get him to create the powerful opening-credit sequence from Sunday’s episode, which seems to reveal the torturous sweatshop responsible for the show’s creation? And how, after all that mockery, have the producers behind that Fox animated series been able to retain their jobs?


One of the things Banksy is known for is disguising his identity. How can you be sure that you were dealing with the real him?


The original boards that we got from him were in his style and were certainly by an extremely proficient artist. We were dealing with the person that represented him making the movie. I haven’t met him, I don’t even know what he looks like, except what the Internet suggests.

this was good

A lot of the show’s animation is produced in South Korea, but not under those conditions.


No, absolutely not.


And even that closing shot of the 20th Century Fox logo surrounded in barbed wire?


Approved by them.

I used to say the media was attacking Paladino to help Cuomo, but this time he created the news making himself so loathsome, I can’t hate Cuomo enough to vote for him.

Nere’s Metro LI on his rant at the Hasidic center (where women reporters had to wait outside and water was poured on them)

Just what we needed after the bullying/torturing cases we had

ot sure if Cuomo would have had that much publicity for such remarks

With even NT Post making like they cared

but indefensible it is anyway.

Also indefensible is keeping Social Security without COLA second year in a row, first time since 1975!

Very few papers mention it
