Every now and again you’ll switch the TV on and, inevitably, the Simpsons is on. On UK channels this usually means a rerun of an episode you’ve seen many, many times before. We all know who shot Mr Burns. we all vividly remember Flanders losing his wife, and there’s no longer any mystery left in the strange night-time goings on in the forest, for which Mulder and Scully’s 2D dopplegangers were called in to investigate. Simpsons re-runs are one thing, and expect them on a daily basis, as sure as the rising of the moon at night. What we don’t like, though, is when a “new” episode is aired and it turns out to be yet another clip show. It is with this in mind that I publish this post, which is, in essence, a clip show. It’s not just an excuse for laziness, though, and it’s definitely not just filler because I couldn’t think of anything else to put out in the 13:30 slot.
The Goodwood Festival Of Speed occurred back in July this year and I was lucky enough to be your reporter-in-the-field. It’s now that time of year where I look back at what I’ve seen, done and experienced as I prepare to exit 2014, and Goodwood still figures strongly among the highlights. Since at 13:30 a number of you are probably enjoying your lunchbreak, join me after the jump, and turn your volume way up high.
