From the Mouth of Addicts: Mail, Make-up, Murals and More

mouthsofaddictsmailcall

The war may be on but what else is going on in the world of The Simpsons besides nerds, barbarians, shield and shenanigans?  Well… you”re about to find out because other players/readers wanted to share some cool stuff

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from a few different tappers.  Everyday we receive TONS of emails from you guys with fun shots of your town, random thoughts about the Simpsons & of course…we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t our favorite… admiration for TSTO Addicts!  So we thought this week we’d share.  In addition, we also get quite a few comments with neat-o stuff.  I personally hate when I think something might get buried in comments and not seen so to stop that, we included them here.

Our first item was an e-mail sent to us from a reader who asked to stay anonymous.

(I say this anonymously, being that I work at mac I’m not allowed to spill the juices, but ya didn’t hear it from me! Just wanted my TRUE Simpson addicts to get first dibs! Keep up the awesome blog!!)

Simpsons MAC announcement

 

The MAC line launched already so if this seems like your thing… check it out!  You can also see more at the MAC website.

Next up, reader Bloodangel736 popped by in the comments to share this:

I was looking through local news today and found this though!

I don’t live there, but I figured you would appreciate some Simpson news!

I wish I lived closer to Portland to see all this awesomeness.  If I’m ever up that way, I’ll be sure to check this out in person.

Another great comment from the past week was from reader Inés Álvarez. She wanted to make sure everyone saw this hilarious video of Homer taking the ALS ice bucket challenge.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is serious business and I applaude anyone who took the challenge and/or donated money.  MyTube is full of celebrities and others doing this.  My beautiful Ewok did the challenge and donated this past weekend even if California is in a drought.  At least she watered the front lawn in the process.

Speaking of the little fuzzball, last on the list is a clip she made sure I saw the other day and I just wanted to share it.  We talked about Judd Apatow writing a Simpsons script a while back but as Season 26 approaches, it’s coming soon.  Mr. Apatow starts talking about the episode around the 1:48 mark.

That wraps up this edition of From the Mouths of Addicts.  What did YOU think of it all?   Sound off in the comments below.  You know we LOVE hearing from you! 🙂

And keep sending us those emails!  You never know when you might end up on the next From the Mouths of Addicts!

Once a week (at least) we plan on showcasing your words (art or video) for the world, and TSTO Community, to read!  Here’s your chance to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out.  Simply send in your posts to our Addicts email account: TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com (many of you already do) and we’ll do the rest!  We’ll pick (at least) one post to be showcased here on Addicts every week.  So send us your posts…we can’t wait to see what you have to say!

Storm the castle!  Batten the gates!  Launch the fireballs!  Man the catapult, trebuchet and ballistas!  Any one got any Greek fire?
