C’est Moi after Simsonizing my normal conference photograph and (hopefully) being fairly honest with the answers. It’s probably an improvement over the original. I may even use it as my Skype image, replacing Kokopelli although I am probably too fond of the old fertility deity from one of my all time favorite narrative traditions to do that. I must admit to have felt that the Simpsons had lost it a bit over the last two years, but having seen the new film I think that is probably where the creative energy has been going rather than the TV series. Mind you it doesn’t do to trivialize this, Berkeley has a course on The Simpsons and Philosophy to take but one example, and even Richard Dawkins has to come down from his pedestal to pay attention to Homer.
