The Holidays of Future Past Mini-Event is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday, January 29th) marks the end of the Holidays of Future Past mini-event!  So,  if you haven’t already, finish up that prize track, purchase your last few premium items, and be prepared to see the mini-event leave our games tomorrow morning! (and hopefully, something new arrives in its place)

What are your overall thoughts on the mini-event?  Have you enjoyed it?  Or did you feel like it was a bit lame?  Where have you placed the prizes? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

P.S. I’m going to give one more reminder about the Holidays of Future Past Showoff!  Please send in your submissions by 8pm ET tonight to be included with tomorrow’s Showoff Post.  Very low participation rate in this one so far, so I’m hoping the rest of you are just busy designing!  Don’t forget to send in those designs!

Morning Musically-Minded, Medically-Minded, Masticators!

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing some of these concepts Monday morning?

So let’s get started this week by discussing a focal point of the climax of the fourth episode of The Simpsons, aversion therapy.

Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

No new Simpsons tonight.  In fact, there won’t be a new episode for about a month. (Feb 16th)  NFL playoffs are still going on, and they’ll conclude with the Superbowl in February.

ICYMI Addicts Live was all new yesterday!  We talked update and had a bit of drama amongst the crew. Check it out here if you missed it.

Holidays of Future Past is winding down, we’re in the home stretch…it ends on Wednesday.  How have you done with the prize track?  Ready for what’s next?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town? Don’t forget Showoff is this week.  Send your submissions in to Tstoaddictsblog@gmail.com by Tuesday night!  More details here.   (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post) 

And finally, how was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Friday Filler – Righteousness and The Missing Apu

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Wow. What a week. Trials, and finger pointing, and loss of righteousness…and that’s just what happened in our little world of TSTO!  I love the fact that TSTO is always here, as a distraction from the insanity of the “real world.”

But sometimes, it seems that the “real world” encroaches on our “happy place,” and we end up “losing our shirt” over something someone says or does.

This has been one of those weeks.  And, man…did it make me feel old and tired.

TSTO Addicts Simpsons Trivia: “Holidays of Future Passed”

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s been a while since we had some trivia around here, so what do you say we have some fun this morning?  After a 6 month hiatus…Let’s kick off the weekend with a new round of Simpsons Trivia!

This week, in honor of the Holidays of Future Past Mini-Event, I thought for this round of trivia we’d cover the episode were this future stuff comes from.  So this week we’re talking about Season 23’s “Holidays of Future Passed”…

Time to brush up on your Simpsons skills because today’s trivia starts now!

The Sounds of TSTO: Holidays of Future Past

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Your senses can evoke powerful memories in you. The smell of saltwater can trigger you back to your youth spent at the beach, the touch of cotton can bring you back to memories of your mom, and hearing sounds of TSTO can bring back countless hours spent tap, tap, tapping away.

So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…

Showoff Announcement: Holidays of Future Past

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Addict Designers!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff, and this time around I want to see what you’ve done with the Holidays of Future Past (and Future in general) stuff! This can be anything and everything Future items (from previous events), or items specific to this event.   So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

As always please remember to limit it to 1-2 of your favorite areas/photos…we can’t show your whole town, unless you want to send in your entire town via town portrait.

So use this time to polish up your town and show us how creative you can be!  Send in your Holidays of Future Past inspired designs (by 8pm ET Tuesday, January 28th) and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post featuring your designs on Wednesday, January 29th. 

Remember, your designs can be anything and everything Future/Holidays of Future Past

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Tuesday, January 28th, can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)
