Throwing Back Seasons with the Fuzzball – Season 5

Hey hey there friends!

So… in case you’re new to this post series… we launched a new feature on the site where I do an audio recap of Seasons of The Simpsons plus whatever other stuff comes out of my mouth. Basically it’s all The Simpsons stuff from the weekly podcast I do. With Totbox on a hiatus from the amazing Throwback posts that I’ve come to love, this is my way of keeping some sort of throwback going and while I’ll miss the hilarity that is Totbox covering episodes of the Best. Show. Ever., I like this format. Shoutout to Alissa for even thinking of this amazing example of the power of double dipping. NOTE: Do not double dip Cheetos… not a good example.


Said overpowering of my taste buds by cheesy poofs aside, one of the goals we’ve had on the site is to provide a variety of different formats for content for y’all.  In case you missed my blatant self-promotion from a few months back, I have been recording a podcast of my own where I ramble on about life, the universe, and everything but mostly geek stuff. I’ve been having a great time and somehow have kept the show going for almost one whole year… 50 episodes as of this writing.

Long and short of these throwing back seasons with the fuzzball posts is that I cull all of The Simpsons stuff from my podcast into a shortened version just for the readers of the site. Long versions of Laugh It Up Fuzzball are always available but I’m well aware that the universe and our lives don’t always have the time we’d like for all the entertainment available. I also know everyone doesn’t necessarily want to listen to me ramble on about geekery for an hour or more each week. That being said, I figured (and hoped) some of you might be interested in my thoughts about older seasons of The Simpsons so here we are.WookieeIn this edition, I cover Season Five of the Best. Show. Ever. Ostensibly, these will be up every time I  do a long format episode that includes the Kwyjibo Corner (what I call my Simpsons segment on the podcast). I do a lot of guest episodes and cover other assorted geek things so I don’t always get around to covering Simpsons. What I can promise is lots of geek news, comics, anime, video games, Star Wars, dystopia, movie reviews, and whatever randomness finds its way onto the recording. Anyhoo… without further words since the goal is just to supply an easy listen, here is this week’s Throwing Back Seasons with the Fuzzball.

Congrats on completing Level 5 of this experiment. For more info about Laugh It Up Fuzzball, you can check out the website (laughitupfuzzball.net). There’s also a Facebook page (facebook.com/laughitupfuzzballpodcast) if you want to join and a closed group for talking geek called Laugh It Up Fuzzballs. It’s easy to join though so come on down if you like. You also can see my real name and friends if that interests you (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1879505335626093). You can reach me on twitter/instagram (@wookieeriot) or the website and of course, as always, here in the comments. Feel free to subscribe to Laugh It Up Fuzzball over on iTunes, googleplay, the stitcher app, or PlayerFM. Several other apps pull from all these so there’s a plethora of ways to listen and/or comment. I hope to see some of your thoughts, comments, and ideas.

If you really want to be my best friend, become a listener of the podcast. I put out new episodes once a week and I think it shows how much effort I put into it. Let me know if you like these season reviews to entice me to do more. Even better, be a superhero and rate and/or comment on the shows on iTunes, Stitcher, GooglePlay, or wherever you’re listening an can do so. Ratings help get all this out to even more people. Hopefully you like these posts as much as I do putting them together. Thanks so much for listening, I remain the Wookiee, your resident walking carpet of Simpsons geekery. You stay classy and thanks for stopping by.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

Road to Riches…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it’s finally come time for me to sit down and write the long awaited Road the Riches post.  Many of you have been asking for more details for a while & have been patiently waiting for me to finish this post.   My apologies for not getting this done sooner.  It started as being too busy from the Time Travel Event to get down to the full details of it, but then turned into I was REALLY enjoying the downtime & really needed the battery recharge….and it was getting increasingly hard to have a desire to sit down and write a post like this.  But I’m here..and I’ve got it knocked out for you now…

(Truth be told…after nearly 4 years of doing this site (and writing over 2,700 of the over 4,500 posts on this site) I’m just tired.  Some days it’s a struggle to find the desire to write about or even play TSTO.  Of course I know that’ll change when the next event hits, but for now I’m enjoying the downtime..)

So, I’m sure most of you have already finished the Road to Riches waiting for me to get you the details…but for those that haven’t (or for those who are just getting there) here’s the 411 on Cecil’s expensive improvements….
