Super Safi’s Monday Morning Musings 41 – Berakhah

Morning Musically-Minded, Medically-Minded, Masticators!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing journey involving music, science, and food to name a few concepts.

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 talking about a Jewish blessing, the berakhah. (Please note, I am not sharing an opinion about religion, just stating facts relating to a topic pertinent to the episode.)

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,  World Series instead.

Halloween Act 2 hit our pocket-sized towns on Friday. Thoughts on Act 2 so far?  Act 1?

Believe it or not Halloween will be here in less than a week! Costume plans?

How’s your Springfield design coming?  What are you doing with your town? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)  

Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods?

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!

THOH XXXI: Turbo Tappin’ Act 2 Hell is Other Students

Sorry this is up a little late guys.  I had hoped to get this up early this morning, but that just didn’t work out.  Wanted to get this TT questline out for y’all today so you didn’t have to wait until Monday, but normally Saturdays are reserved for non-gameplay posts.  So consider this an exception to that rule…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s everyone’s (well almost everyone’s) favorite time in TSTO, the annual Treehouse of Horror Event!  Yes, Halloween in Springfield has always been big deal in TSTO and this year is no exception! Also always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

The 2020 THOH Event follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting just over a week (10 days) and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Act 2 we’re tasked with collecting Cursed Scrolls!  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the second part of the story.  So let’s take a look at the details behind Act 2 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for Hell is Other Students…

Friday Filler – When Hell Is Not What You Expected!

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

I am really cracking up with some of the dialogue in this update. It is pretty funny, and frankly a bit “Hell lite,” compared to what they could be doing. I mean, hell…even as a concept…is pretty damn scary!

The great thing about Hell, is that for you to believe in Hell, you pretty much have to believe in the afterlife. Even that is a complicated thing, when you start trying to bring different concepts from different religions into the conversation. And you really do need to do that. But, trying to settle on a common theme can be a bit of Hell itself.

In fact…right away, I had some fun with “Ned Flanders Personal Hell,” when I won it. I found it irresistible to place it in the one place that would actually really be Hell for Ned…

Uhm…yes…the servers are messed up.

So…as has been reported (about a zillion times), there are sporadic server outages from EA today, starting with the update this morning.

There is NOTHING you can do about it, but wait for them to fix it. Reinstalling, uninstalling, holding your breath, dancing on one leg, and poking holes in the screen of your padular device to “let the evil out” DOES NOT WORK.

Solution…wait. Go do something else. The new Borat movie is on Netflix. Go have a laugh while you wait.
