Unleash Your Yellow with FOX's The Simpsons Poster Contest

An edible Milhouse?

FOX has invited fans of The Simpsons, celebrating its twentieth (yes, twentieth!) anniversary with a fan-based initiative called “Unleash Your Yellow” that runs between now and January 2010.

I'm already completely enchanted by The Simpsons Poster Contest, which has asked fans of everyone's favorite animated family to discover The Simpsons in their everyday life: "Whether it’s a cob of corn that reminds them of Marge, a billowing cloud that looks like Homer or a picket fence that resembles the spikes of Bart’s hair, inspiration can be found anywhere!"

Fans, who must be older than 18, can design and submit posters using their original art, which can also be combined with digital assets that can be found online at thesimpsons.com. The deadline to submit your entries is 11:59 PM ET on March 4th.

But that's not all. The Top Ten finalists, decided by FOX and producers of The Simpsons, will be posted on thesimpsons.com. The winner to be revealed online on April 5th and will receive a trip to Los Angeles to attend The Simpsons 21st season premiere party as well as tickets to “The Simpsons Ride” at Universal Studios Hollywood. Additionally, the winning artwork may be incorporated into the series’ Fall 2009 marketing campaign.

(I'm feeling extremely inspired by that towering cotton candy I saw the other day; it just screams Marge Simpson. But I still can't get that candy Milhouse out of my head. And, well, I'm more than a little curious to see how many people work Ralph into their posters.)

This is a fun idea, although I don't know if I could beat the candy Milhouse. The corn on the cob Marge is hysterical too.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.
