Yesterday, we pulled off something so unique and special. Matt Selman (Simpsons writer since 1997) and I co-hosted a Simpsons marathon live video feed. For eight hours and twenty six minutes we watched Simpsons episodes during the FXX marathon and talked about everything Simpsons. Throughout the thirty two guests that showed up, we hear never before told stories, songs, jokes, characters, everything. If you are a Simpsons fan, this will be an enormous treat. You get behind the scenes insight on everything. There is so much awesome in this eight hour YouTube clip which i had no idea was being saved. If you want to watch along with the TV, the Livestream started somewhere during Deep Space Homer.

I Will Be Co-Hosting a Simpsons Marathon Live Video Stream this Saturday!
This Saturday, August 23rd at 9:30AM (Pacific time), I will be co-hosting a live video stream with Simpsons writer Matt Selman to be watched hand and hand (eye and eye?) with the Simpsons marathon happening right now over at FXX. We will start at 9:30am and keep going till viewers get bored. This isn’t sponsored by anyone, nobody is getting paid, it’s just a bunch of people from the show and fans of the show getting together in front of a laptop to chat Simpsons because we love the show. There will be a barrage of special guests, actors/actresses, comedians, musicians and a flurry of people who have worked on the show in the last twenty five years. It will be part Director’s commentary, part crazy characters, part special guests and part insanity. Or it will be none of that because I couldn’t figure out how to work the live stream. Either way-
So grab a Duff, join the live stream and enjoy the marathon with us starting this Saturday AM. As we get closer to the date, I’ll post all the viewing info on my twitter account- www.twitter.com/rejectedjokes
