Bart becomes a (jazz drummer) underground graffiti artist whose work quickly catches the eye of his fellow artists; a new (comic book store) health food store becomes tough competition for the (Android's Dungeon) Kwik-E-Mart.
ETA: I'd like to see more of Bart & The Beanstalk, and was the couch gag a reference to something? I'm assuming Game of Thrones. Because it was awesome.
The scene at the Not Trader Joe's was pretty funny. "Six aisles of olives!" But seeing Apu descend into madness was...heartbreaking to say the least. We've seen him become disheartened over better businesses (The Monstro-Mart, Fortune Megastore), but not to the point of actually fighting Homer (which just went on a little too long). But I liked the role reversal of Apu trying to mug Snake (er, "Just Bird"), and he calmed Apu down.
I'll admit, I really liked all of Bart's art. Great to see El Barto become legitimate. I wonder if Shepard Fairy, et. all were behind it? I loved the callback to the Skinner "I am a weiner" graffiti from Bart The Genius. Really liked the separate "Sincere Hats" and "Ironic Hats" entrants into Bart's gallery. Also, Burns getting the "no refunds" sign enforced on him was just great.
I'll admit, I really liked this one much more than I thought I would. A few flaws (APU), but I can let it slide.
