Dead Homer Society 'The Simpsons' Explains Its Provocative Banksy Opening How did “The Simpsons” manage to track down Banksy, the pseudonymous British artist, and get him to create the powerful opening-credit sequence from Sunday’s episode, which seems to reveal the torturous sweatshop responsible for the show’s creation? And how, after all that mockery, have the producers behind that Fox animated series been able to retain their jobs? Al Jean, an executive producer and the longtime show runner of “The Simpsons,” pulled back another layer of the curtain and explained the stunt to ArtsBeat on Monday afternoon. How did you find Banksy to do this, and now that it’s done, how much trouble are you in? Well, I haven’t been fired yet, so that’s a good sign. Were you concerned that what he sent you could get the show into hot water? I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about it for a little bit. Can you say what got cut out? I’ll just say, it was even a little sadder. One of the things Banksy is known for is disguising his identity. No, absolutely not.
Okay, I admit it. Nail Art is just totally Cool. If you find yourselves in one of those situations when you have absolutely crap-all to do, attempting some nail art is probably a good idea. I do declare that there are a few rules however! 1) Nothing too fancy. This is not a trend to be taken too seriously but you don’t want it to look like something threw up all over your nails either. 2) No long hoochie nails. 3) If you feel confident enough to crack on with some more tricky styles but need some guidelines, check out the video tutorials I’ve provided at the bottom of this post. 4) If you have no frick’n idea what you’re doing, get them done professionally.

Banksy creates new Simpsons title sequence 11 October 2010Last updated at 08:43 UK graffiti artist Banksy has created a controversial title sequence for long-running US animation The Simpsons. The intro, which was shown in the US on Sunday, opens with the street artist's tag scrawled across the town of Springfield. It closes with a minute-long sequence showing dozens of sweatshop workers in a warehouse painting cartoon cells and making Simpsons merchandise. The episode, called MoneyBart, will be shown in the UK on 21 October. It is the first time an artist has been invited to storyboard part of the show. The extended sequence was apparently inspired by reports the show outsources the bulk of their animation to a company in South Korea. Delays and disputes It features Bart Simpson with his face covered as he writes all over his classroom walls. While in the sweatshop, kittens are thrown into a wood chipper so their fur can be used to stuff Bart Simpson dolls and a chained unicorn is used to punch holes in Simpsons DVDs.
