Last night’s episode of “The Simpsons”, “A Totally Fun Thing That Bart Will Never Do Again” (note the titular cap-doff to David Foster Wallace) featured music from Hot Chip and Animal Collective.
Hot Chip’s “Boy From School” soundtracked the opening montage of Bart’s dreary weekly routine, while Animal Collective’s “Winter’s Love” featured during what could be described as the quintessential way to enjoy Animal Collective: sliding belly-first down a snowdrift. Homer gives a glum Bart sound advice also applicable to the over-pontificating Animal Collective fan in your life: “Yeah, stupid, stop thinking about fun and have it!”
