Simpson meme heaven, cynic-free talk and hot local hoops

WEB | As the longest-running sitcom in the history of American television, The Simpsons has churned out thousands of memorable one-liners through its 586 episodes (and counting). Thankfully, Sean Schulte, Allie Young and Paul Kehrer have created FRINKIAC.COM, which provides some 3 million screenshots from the show's first 15 seasons, all searchable by quote. Once you find the image you're looking for, you can easily make it a meme with the site's customized tools. Pretty soon, everything will be comin' up Milhouse for you.

PODCAST | You'd be forgiven for dismissing Michael Ian Black as a goofball, given his stand-up work, time with The State and prolific Twitter insanity, but put preconceptions aside when you dive into HOW TO BE AMAZING WITH MICHAEL IAN BLACK. Here, Black talks with experts in their field (from comedians to scientists) and asks them about their process, their philosophy; basically, how they became amazing. What results is a cynicism-free show that will leave you inspired. The two-part episode with David Sedaris, for example, is required listening for any aspiring writer, or even anyone who just wants to learn how to tell a better cocktail party anecdote.

BASKETBALL | Filling the opening at shooting guard after the departure of national scoring champion Tyler Harvey was a tall task for Eastern Washington University basketball, but they did well in luring senior AUSTIN McBROOM, who transferred from Saint Louis. The diminutive sharpshooter has exceeded all expectations, leading the surging Eagles (they've won four straight Big Sky games) in scoring with 20 points per game. As a bonus, the guy is a hell of a lot of fun to watch. He flies around the court and has the sort of shoot-from-anywhere mentality Coach Jim Hayford enjoys fostering in Cheney. The Eagles are at home on Thursday, Feb. 11, at 6:05 pm against North Dakota and Saturday, Feb. 13, at 2:05 pm vs. Northern Colorado. ♦
