Gayeton previously worked on the CD-ROM version of the film Johnny Menemonic, and is a partner with Propaganda Films along with David Fincher, Spike Jonze, and Alex Proyas.

marge simpson(S18E16)I was sick, that's why this review is late. Onward:

I may be a Simpsons apologist, but that doesn't mean I don't understand where people are coming from when they say the show isn't what it used to be. Even those like myself who defend the series for still being one of the smartest and funniest shows on television can still recognize a lesser episode, and this episode was certainly not the best one of the season.

Foster's Big Fat Awesome House Party is fun

foster's home for imaginary friendsI don't play video games much anymore. I think the last game I had any real interest in was Mario Kart on the N64. Frankly, they've become too convoluted for my tastes, and I tend to like puzzle games and other "boring" stuff like that. At any rate, since I'm a big fan of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and have been spending the last few days watching the plethora of episodes I've Tivoed, I kept seeing commercials for an online game based on the show called Big Fat Awesome House Party. Curiosity got the better of me so I decided to check it out, and it's actually  a lot of fun for both kids and immature adults like myself. You create your own imaginary friend (I named mine "Crumple") and then wander about the home, making friends, doing chores, playing games, and advancing to new levels as you complete different tasks. If you're a fan of the show, you should definitely check it out, and even if you're not, it's a fun way to waste time while at work.
