The Bizarre Modern Reality of The Simpsons

This video sparked a few thoughts in me:

First, I had never heard of Bartkira or the genre Simpsonswave, but I’m excited to explore those two extensions of the fandom I grew up with.

Second, as someone who built a Ralph Wiggum website as a kid, I can relate to so much of what this YouTuber expresses in his video.

It certainly isn’t my nature to create “art” (in the traditional sense, like painting, drawing, sculpting, etc.). However, I’ve made it a goal to better understand art and the process artists go through to express themselves.

How beautiful is it that our generation has this program, which was intended as a subversive commentary on America in the 1990s, which we can subvert to make own own commentary about America in the 2020s?
