In Groening News….New Futurama Episode!

Good News Everyone!  There’s a new episode of Futurama out today!

And before some of you yell at me…I’m sharing this here because there are a TON of you that are both Simpson fans and Futurama fans….so those that want to yell at me because this isn’t about the Simpsons, don’t.  Just ignore this post if you don’t like Futurama and read the TSTO related posts….and don’t worry I’ll have another TSTO related post up soon.  I just thought this might be a fun thing for folks to listen to. 

So a pretty cool thing happened, the creators and voiced actors of Futurama got together to make a PODCAST (ie Audio only) version of Futurama!  1 new Double Episode of Futurama!  Pretty Cool!

So for those that want to take a listen, here it is…. Continue reading

Good News Everyone!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Popping in with some good news for a Sunday morning….

Following popular demand…we’ve launched Futurama Addicts! (so apparently you guys can peer pressure me into doing more work…)

Yes, that’s right, I’ve lost my mind!  But, what else is new?

So join us for the “fun”…or slow TinyCo torture…and a trip around the world over a Futurama Addicts!  Like TSTO Addicts, but will likely get cancelled in it’s prime. 😉

You can catch us two different ways, same great site, FWOTAddicts.com or FuturamaAddicts.com.  Either option will bring you to the Addicts fun!

Keep in mind, it’s still a work in progress…so content will be added continually until we’re all caught up. So patience is appreciated! Oh, and if you’re interested in writing for FWOT drop me an email Contact@FWOTAddicts.com, we’re always looking for more writers! 🙂

Enjoy my friends!

Addicts Take Hollywood

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A week ago today the Addicts gathered on the West Coast to take on Hollywood!

Universal Studios Hollywood that is.

I really hated turning that new Michael Bay movie down, but Crunchy Cranky told me it was a bad deal.  Then Wook touched him with “not his wish hand”..and things got awkward.  So, while no major movie contracts were signed (although we did make our own independent films…via Facebook Live), we still had a blast walking through the streets of Springfield in Hollywood. And hey, Patric did have a celebrity moment!

It was awesome to see sights from our own pocket-sized Springfields in real life, although I’m not sure I 100% agreed with their design choices.  I mean they had Krustyland front and center…and we all know how everyone feels about Krustyland!

So the real reason we were in Springfield, there is a point to this post after all, was to meet up with YOU!  It gave us an awesome opportunity to meet up with fellow Addicts at Moe’s Tavern.  We were able to share a few laughs, a few stories and lots of hugs all over Flaming Moe’s and Duff!

So let’s recap… Continue reading

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Today’s the day…we’re LIVE at Universal Studios in Hollywood for our Addicts Meetup!  If you’re in California we’d love to have you join us…but for those who can’t make it we’ll be trying to do a few live videos from the Meetup & our antics at Universal.  Here’s where you can check them out….

And NO you don’t need an account on either platform to view the content…

Alissa’s Instagram: @AddictsAlissa I’ll be doing some instastories throughout the day. (Just click on my icon image to view the instastories)

Addicts Facebook: TSTOAddicts we’ll be doing Facebook Lives throughout the day.

I’m going to try and do a YouTube video, like we do for Addicts Live, but I’m not sure how we’ll it’ll work from my cell phone.  If we can get it setup I’ll embed the video here.

Thanks for tuning in!

Welcome Super Safi!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

For those of you who watched Addicts Live last week, you’ll know that we announced that Safi is now part of the Addicts team!

You may know Safi from the comments, as the creator of the Bracket Battle Challenges (you’ve all come to love) and even more popular, the writer behindt he super crazy detailed Kwik-E-Mart Farming post (free donuts anyone), as well as a host of other posts (he’s been writing guest posts for us for years now)!  He’s definitely detail orientated and totally into the stats and math behind the game!

We’re incredibly excited to have Safi join the staff more regularly and help out when he can!  So be sure to pay Safi the same respect in the comments you would Wookiee, Pat or myself!

Welcome aboard Super Safi!  We’re thrilled to have you as part of the team!

Woo-Hoo It’s Our 4 Year Blogiversary!

simpsons-party2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Today marks the official 4 year anniversary of when TSTO Addicts was officially launched!  We’re completely blown away by the AMAZING community of readers we have here at TSTO Addicts.  We absolutely love what we do and really appreciate all of YOU!

Of course we’re no strangers to celebrating an anniversary around here!  We celebrated every anniversary on this site, no matter how big or small. (including our 1 month blogiversary way back when!)  We’re always celebrating little milestones with each other and we LOVE to share the bigger ones with you guys!   After all YOU guys are the heart and soul of this community….and we wouldn’t have it any other way!  (plus who doesn’t like a good party?!)  So pop the champagne, break out the noise makers and let’s get to celebrating already!

I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you to our wonderful readers and share a few thoughts on Addicts turning 4!  Continue reading

We’re Back!

Update: It appears that some images are missing from the main feed on the posts.  When you click on the post most will reappear.  WordPress is looking into it to see if they can correct the problem.  Thanks for your patience!

AHHHHHHHHHHH!

We’re back!  Wooohoo!  You guys can’t even begin to know how badly I was “itching” to get back to blogging!

We’re back online, everything should be back to normal now.  The downside is we may have lost some of your comments from the last 24hrs, so I do apologize for that!

I’m writing up a SIB on Otto right now and will have it up for y’all shortly.  Be prepared for us to catch you up on a ton of details we missed from a day of not blogging.

For now let’s all just rejoice in the fact that the site is back to normal, and I won’t be having panic attacks in the corner over breaking the site!

P.S. Special shout out to the Happiness Engineers at WordPress for fixing what I thought was completely lost!

Addicts Housekeeping: Addicts Live and Meetup

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Saturday!  Hope y’all had a great week and an even better start to your weekend! Just wanted to pop in this morning with a couple of notes about a few things..

First up, Addicts Live!

You may have noticed it’s been a few weeks since the last Addicts Live, and we’re halfway through July and we haven’t announced another one yet.  In fact, a few of you emailed me asking about it.  While we LOVE doing Addicts Live, we’ve all go a bunch of stuff going on in our lives this month so we’re taking the month of July off. (in fact Pat’s daughter is getting married next weekend(!), so you know he’s been otherwise preoccupied this month!)

But don’t worry, we’ll be back at it in August!  In fact, we’re already talking about ways we can do one where we’re all in the same room during our Addicts Meetup next month!

And speaking of the Addicts Meetup…

We’re just about a month away from our Addicts West Coast Adventure! You can find out more details about it here, but Wookiee, Patric and I are hoping to meet up with YOU the Addicts Readers next month (August 19th) at Universal Studios Hollywood! A bunch of you have RSVP’d already, but I thought a reminder a month out doesn’t hurt! So if you’re interested in attending, don’t forget to RSVP so we can get an approx headcount.

Looking forward to meeting up with our West Coast Addicts in about a month!

And that’s it from me (don’t worry a fun Caption This will be coming up a little later today).  Hope y’all enjoy the rest of your weekend!  And remember to enjoy the downtime in TSTO, because very likely something is hitting our games next week!
