TSTO Addicts Saturday Simpsons Trivia: “The Way We Was”

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Back by popular demand…more Simpsons Trivia!

This week’s trivia focuses on the episode in which a bunch of the Classless Reunion content comes from.  Avid Simpsons fans (or just those who’ve read my posts) know that a vast majority of content comes from Season 2, Episode 12 “The Way We Was”.  So I thought it would be fun to have today’s trivia all about that episode!

We’ll also be asking a bunch of these questions on today’s Addicts Live.  So play along with us! 🙂

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

Friday Filler – Respectfully Eat My Shorts Mouse Boy!

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

OK. Yes. So, the headline is a bit of a taunt to the Simpsons’ new dark ruler…if you actually believe that Disney is as bad as all of the old school, traditional media types believe they are.

I am not in that camp.  In fact, I am one of those who thinks that large, efficiently run, diverse, amazing companies, should be allowed to rise to the top, and be everything they can be, without the fear of being called “a monopoly.”  Companies that get too big, ultimately go the way of Rome, and buckle under the pressure of handling too much…with too wide a grasp. Ask Microsoft…and perhaps even Facebook. But, I like the world better with Google and Amazon. Too political?

Well…as it pertains to the Simpsons, and for that matter, TSTO, I am going to go with the belief that Disney knows what a treasure the show is, and has the kind of deep pockets, and forward thinking, to make both the show, and the game, a continued reality for years more to come. Belief is a powerful thing. It creates faith…and then reason is thrown out the window. But, I digress…

The Disney statement is bold. Yes.  But, both Disney’s new Masthead, and “Sizzle Reel” released this week when the ink was barely dry on the final acquisition papers of Fox Entertainment, would tell a story that should put this conversation to bed.

A Classless Reunion Prize Breakdown: Prom Time Homer

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s reunion time for Marge, Homer, and the rest of the Springfield High Gang.  What will happen?  Will Homer get his ham?  You’ll have to read the dialogue to find out. Of course, a new event means new prizes to earn and new prizes mean it’s time for everyone’s favorite prize breakdown posts!

So let’s take a look at the fifth (and final) prize, Prom Time Homer…

Should I Spend Donuts On the Returning Springfield University or Tongue-Kiss Point?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Business as unusual in our pocket-sized towns.  Back to back mini-events, that’s certainly a turn for the different in town! Of course, an all-new mini-event gives EA an excuse to stock our stores with returning premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the returning Springfield University or Tongue-Kiss Point to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Showoff Announcement: Springfield Smorgasbord

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Addict Designers!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff, and I thought with the brand new Mystery Box (and, let’s face it, a pretty uneventful Mini-event) we should a little Showoff fun. This time around it’s Springfield Smorgasbord!   So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

The next showoff will feature whichever areas of your Springfield that you want to show!  (again 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 downtime to polish up your town and show us how creative you can be!  Send in your Springfield Smorgasbord areas from your town and we’ll be putting up the Showoff Post featuring your designs on Tuesday, March 26th.

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Monday, March 25th 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.)
