    GGLITCHdTHE

    q&A with JACK HEINTZq. How much of your songs are improvisation?A. Almost all of our songs have at least a little bit of structure that we can use to defi ne begin-nings/endings and jam parts to songs. It will vary show to show on how much is improvised also; some crowds dig it, some crowds have a shorter attention span.

    q. What are some of your infl uences?A. My personal in uences vary greatly from Buddy Rich on drums to Mike Skerik on saxophone and Roger Daltry on vocals. I pretty much strictly play drums but if it makes my musical sense more diverse, I dig it.

    q. Anything new to expect coming soon from The Gglitchd?A. More new songs, new styles and lots of shows. Were working hard to redefi ne ourselves and get people back into the venues and dancing .

    Director David Finchers The Social Net-work is set in modern times as the found-ers of the website Facebook battle over their creation. Tom Hoopers The Kings Speech takes place in the 1920s and 30s as Queen Elizabeth IIs dad struggles with his speech im-pediment at a time when the royal family is counted on to voice reassurance through the new medium of radio.

    The Social Network has almost universal acclaim, a hip subject and impressive box-of-fice results since it opened Oct. 1. The Kings Speech, now in theaters, is an old-fashioned awards contender, a classy period piece that has been an audience favorite at film festivals

    for its heart and humor.We didnt realize it was a comedy as well

    as a drama. We had no idea people enjoyed it on so many levels, said Colin Firth, who stars as the stammering King George VI, reluctantly taking the throne after his brother abdicates and finding unexpected kinship with a wily Australian speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush).

    It ticks a lot of boxes that are notorious for being supposed nomination bait, you know monarchs and disabilities and that sort of thing. But it has very little to do with that as far as Im concerned. The substance of this is to do with this friendship.

    The Social Network also deals with

    friendship the unraveling kind. Jesse Eisenberg stars as Facebook mastermind Mark Zuckerberg, playing him as an abra-sive, socially inept genius who ends up in fe-rocious legal feuds with his former best bud-dy (Andrew Garfield) and others claiming he stiffed them on the sites proceeds.

    Fincher said hes hopeful but that Oscar talk is premature. Social Network screen-writer Aaron Sorkin is even more tightlipped about awards.

    I just wont talk about it, Sorkin said. I can tell you that right now, what means something to me is that people who have seen the movie seem very moved by it. Its everything we could have hoped for when we began the project.

    Nominations come out Jan. 25, with the Oscars presented on Feb. 27.

    simpsons World amazingly detailed

    I t is a doorstop, a cornerstone, the founda-tion piece in a great wall of geekdom. It is the Internet in convenient book form, shamelessly bidding to land on holiday gift lists. It is pop-culture arcania, embiggened.

    The new Simpsons World: The Ultimate Episode Guide (Seasons 1-20) compiles facts

    about Americas longest-running TV family with a vengeance: 1,200 pages and almost 9 pounds distilled from more than 8,000 min-utes of creamy television goodness.

    Whats the name of the town recycling cen-ter on the enduring Fox series? Uriahs Heap.

    Who was Sideshow Bobs cellmate? Snake.

    What was the first blackboard gag? I will not waste chalk.

    Simpsons World is nearly as over-whelming as it is impressive, like a base-ball abstract but with oddly shaped yel-

    low people as the players and snappy lines as the statistics.

    Whats so dizzying is not just the small print and vibrant colors adorning each regular epi-sodes two-page spread.

    Its the astonishing rush of detail and the re-alization that, yes, there are very many people who will care.

    This is a show written by obsessives for ob-sessives, people who pride themselves on know-ing that $486.52 is how much baby Maggie cost when she was accidentally scanned at the gro-cery store.

    Around and amid the episode listings (title, credits, airdate, key points, guest voices, things youd have to hit pause to catch), there are more: All of Homers Doh! utterances, explained.

    All the times Homer, in that salivating, always hungry tone, said, Mmmm ... (something).

    And, joy of ultimate-fan joys, a very good in-dex.

    This would be perfect bathroom reading if it werent so darn heavy.

    Then again, if youre the person for whom this book is designed, building for it a stand or a case or a special corner shrine, with spotlight and magnifying glass and white gloves to keep its pages clean, doesnt seem so unlikely an idea.

    simpsons World is nearly as overwhelm-

    ing as it is impres-sive, like a baseball abstract but with

    oddly shaped yellow people as the players and snappy lines as

    the statistics.
