Powetcast 117: Not Safe For Witchers

Adam and Zac are joined by Jim from Not Safe For Watercoolers, proving that the only qualification for being on the show is the ability to talk and laugh loudly.
Topics of discussion include Fez, bare knuckle boxing, Sour Patch Kids, The Avengers, The Simpsons’ home town of Springfield, and the forthcoming video game The Witcher 2. Or at least we tried to talk about these things.

The Simpsons’ Springfield is in … Oregon!

Nik Choeychan in front of the Springfield, Oregon sign

In a recent interview with the Smithsonian Magazine Matt Groening, creator of the Simpsons, has revealed that the “Springfield” the show takes place in was actually based on Springfield Oregon! Fans have been trying to determine the location of Springfield for many years, as the show has given many, often contradictory, clues to the city’s actual location.

No doubt this will do nothing to settle the age old argument. The show’s city may have been loosely inspired by a city in Oregon, not far from Matt Groening’s home town of Portland, but the town of Springfield is a place all to itself.

Springfield, Oregon is a tiny town, home to only about 60,000 people at last count. Is that even equivalent to the number of guest stars to appear in the show over the past 23 years?

Thanks to Nik Choeychan who’s picture of the Springfield, Oregon sign I stole from his MySpace page. Could Nik be the inspiration for Bart Simpson? No. Not at all…

The Simpsons Arcade Game – Keep Playing LIVE!

Don’t have a cow, man.

The Simpsons Arcade game finally invades Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network and we took advantage of the four player simultaneous play. Instead of the normal review of the game you’re used to seeing on Keep Playing, this is an entire play through. Also, you’ll hear running commentary from our (sometimes) podcast lineup of Adam, Ernie, and Zero along side myself. We’re going to dish on Simpsons trivia, point out some relevant gameplay facts, and make crass jokes.

Enjoy! This episode has a 40 minute run time, so I’ll save you the trouble and let you know the inevitable Terminator reference is at 7:58.

Powet Alphabet: C is for Conan

Conan O’Brien is, as of the time of this writing, still the host of The Tonight Show on NBC. Previously he was the host of Late Night, and a writer for Saturday Night Live and The Simpsons.

Conan is currently in dispute as the 11:35pm host on NBC, as network decision makers want to bring back Jay Leno, who moved on from the position in 2009. As a respected comedy writer and performer with legions of fans around the world (especially in the geek community), its worth noting why we love him.

Here are some highlights from outside his talk show career: [Read the rest of this entry…]

Kwik-E-Mart May Replace 7-11

As a massive promotion for The Simpsons Movie this summer, 7-11 has agreed to full convert 11 of its stores in the US into replicas of the infamous Kwik-E-Mart.

MTV Reports a 7-11 spokesperson refused to confirm or deny, but apparently it was revealed in a company event last week. The stores will take on the appearance of Kwik-E-Mart, serve Squishies and other popular Simpsons food. I can only pray this happens and I can get a Duff Beer. Or an appearance from Duff Man!

Thanks Robbie!
