Abstract

This article enters the Dark Simpsons to provide theories of un/popular culture, while summoning models of dark pop. The piece commences with a conventional presentation of memes. However, their accelerated movement is probed and monitored to understand the agitated transformations between popular and un/popular culture. These models are then applied to an investigation of the Dark Simpsons and the rationale for this troubled and troubling cultural system.
