Looking back on a week in which we were all Springfieldians …
We finished the new Harry Potter.
Then we wondered, “Will The Simpsons Movie be any good?” We wrote a Broadway musical and ate our weight in doughnuts. Finally, we saw it. Unlike these guys. At least A.O. Scott liked it.
We said good-bye to artist Jeremy Blake.
Oh, snap! Norman Mailer called Jean-Luc Godard “the third most awful man I’ve met in my life.”
The White Stripes rocked the Garden, M.I.A. played Coney Island, and Jonathan Ames punched a guy in the face.
And finally, Junie B. Jones killed the English language, and we killed Jack Bauer.
