Y’all know the routine: every once in a while (read: more than strictly necessary), I get a whole mess of links just sitting there in my browser, asking to be posted. So, let’s get to the linkage, shall we?

Did you want to see all the awesome portions of the recent Simpsons game, but just couldn’t be bothered to buy and play it? Well, this collection of YouTube videos has got your freeloading behind covered. The GeForce 9800 GX2 — my wallet just hurts with sympathy pain.
