Simpsons World App
After 552 episodes, The Simpsons is longest running sitcom on TV and now you’ll be able to watch all 275 plus hours of the show whenever you want thanks to Simpsons World. The app, announced today and debuting in October, will be available on smartphones, iPad, Xbox, and smart TV’s and it will offer every episode of the show. Not only will you be able to watch the entire library, you’ll be able to search episodes by description or even by quote. If you have a burning to desire to know when “everything’s coming up Milhouse,” you won’t have to pour through episode synopses to find it (it’s season 10, episode 19 by the way). 
Here is what the FXX App will look like:

- Every episode ever, in an order that’s easy to browse, but also easy to search.
- A search function that allows you to quickly find — and share across social media — your favorite Simpsons joke or scene.
- Ability to curate your own playlists of episodes and/or scenes, and a learning function that will then recommend similar ones for you to try or revisit.
- An exhaustive episode guide that can be opened up to run parallel to the episode, featuring historical references, behind-the-scenes info, quotes, etc. You can also have each episode’s script scrolling along as you watch it, and you can excerpt and share parts of the script, as well.

In short, Simpsons World will pretty much be the perfect, dream-come-true app for Simpsons fans, and according to FXX all features are set to be available to cable subscribers in October.

These Objects Don’t Really Exist

Felice Varini is a Swiss artist known for his mind-bending designs, which consist of so-called perspective-localized paintings. These are shapes that appear three-dimensional when viewed from one vantage point, but which are in fact a skillfully-arrayed geometry of flat graphics painted onto the surfaces. The technical term for this is “anamorphosis” from the Greek prefix “ana-” meaning back or again, and “morphe” meaning shape or form. But no words can do justice to how unreal these look.
