Santa Barbara Appearance by ‘Simpsons’ Creator Matt Groening to Follow Marathon Screening

Cable channel FXX will mark the 25th anniversary of The Simpsons with a marathon screening of all 500-plus episodes in the show’s history that began Wednesday and will run through Sept. 1. That’s a lot of “Cowabunga, dude!”

In the Santa Barbara area, cable subscribers can turn their dials to FXX Channel 78 starting at 10 a.m. The shows will be aired in chronological order, 24 hours a day through the entire run.

UCSB Arts & Lectures will feature Matt Groening, the famed creator of The Simpsons, in a rare appearance titled "An Evening with Matt Groening & Lynda Barry" a 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10 at the Arlington Theatre.

The only West Coast appearance of the two cartoonists (Barry is the renowned creator of the comic strip, Ernie Pook’s Comeek) is subtitled "Love, Hate & Comics: The Friendship That Would Not Die." The pair met and became friends more than 35 years ago while students at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
