My new watercolors are really great! And...I have started to watch The Simpsons again after a pause! This week I haven't done anything else but watched/re-watched them (it's true!). Because my life sucks really much at the moment and I decided to give myself a little break from all of that. All this spring I worked really hard for nothing, NOTHING! I have never been so disappointed in my life!
But I'm not giving up of my dreams, no matter how unrealistic they are. Sigh, life is nowadays just too difficult, unfair and hard and everything is made so complicated in our society! So I feel a lot like Moe right now... that poor guy!
Moe is my favourite The Simpsons character actually. I started watching the show relatively late, I was 14 years old when I "found" it...or saw the show's real value. Surprisingly, I watched Futurama first before The Simpsons. Even though I love Futurama, I have to say The Simpsons beats it easily (sorry Bender! I still adore you!) because of its wide range of versatility and humoristic way of dealing about the serious issues and problems we have to deal in our life and in our society, and The Simpsons have more heart too. At first I didn't like Moe, I thought he was a weird creep since I hadn't yet got used to the show's style...(hey, Simpsons and Futurama were first adult targeted cartoons I saw!xD) but quite soon I found his character very endearing and relatable once I saw more episodes that included him. I bet he's the writers' pet actually, since there are so many episodes focused on him. He's lonely, frustrated, hated, foul-mouthed, tired, suicidal, cranky, angry, creepy, ugly (in a cute kind of way almost...I mean, Hank Azaria's voice is adorable!)...yet he has more sides than any other Simpsons character in my opinion: he's poetic, always seeking a romance, he's fair and a good friend (umh, at least sometimes when people are buying his beer
) and his agony makes the tv watcher feel better of themselves or having more hope...or at least having good laughs.
And well, many of the Simpsons characters have lots of problems and misfortune so the show is some what empowering... at least it's for me. It's important to know that not everyone is an instant winner with everything and life isn't perfect and can have surprises (bad and good) et cetera. Also, the cruel dark humor is just the thing I need right now. Society really tries to drive everyone crazy these days, sigh! Sh*t! Uh, better watch some more The Simpsons before I turn into complete bitterness.
Oh, I just noticed that today will air an episode "Whiskey Business" which is focused on MOE! OOH! And the clips seem promising and somewhat fitting for my miserable life situation (okay, I'm definitely not suicidal like Moe but very exhausted because of this frustrating failure spring...sigh! Well, perhaps life will be more kinder to me soon, hopefully!) I hope Moe will be happy at the end of that episode! ;_; Can't wait for the episode!
