If You Are Getting Popups On the Addicts Site…READ THIS

OK. Let’s just be honest about it…there are a ton of bad folks out there trying to mess with our site, and every other site in the world.  It’s in the headlines. It’s all over the web…and yes…you may be getting some of the same annoying Pop-Ups while others who go to the same sites do not.

You may be screaming…”WHY ME?????”

Well…as it turns out, it could be partly “user error.”  If you are using any device in the iWorld (pads, phones, books, laptops) you are likely really OK when it comes to Malware. Apple actually does a pretty good job.  HOWEVER…it doesn’t protect you from pop-ups on web sites. If you don’t have pop-up blockers installed in your browsers…you might consider it.

But there are actually a couple of common sense things you can do, to get rid of those nasty popups and “YOU MIGHT HAVE WON AN AMAZON GIFT CARD” notices.

Treehouse of Horror XXIX – Prize Guide – Dracula-La Land

OK.  I get it. If you are going to do a parody or a pun…or even worse, a bad parody and a bad pun, you might as well go all of the way.  And this prize does.

It’s actually from an episode…the Treehoouse of Horrors that came out around the same time that the Horror Film (at least for me) La La Land, came out. It’s from Season 21, and the segment is called, “Tweenlight.”  Yes. Another play on the “Twilight” movies. Equally awful as La La Land.

According to the WIKI- Dracula-la Land is a neighborhood of Springfield where everyone is a vampire, or at least looks like one.

“Homer and Count Dracula drove into Dracula-la Land searching for their children (Lisa and Edmund), who had run off together. After a brief search, which included asking Count von Count if he’d seen the kids, Dracula spotted Edmund carrying Lisa up the side of a bell tower.”

OK then. And then they dance and sing?  Man. I really hated that movie. Bad dancing. Bad singing. Silly story. But, I digress…

Here are the details for Dracula-La Land

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

Halloween 2018 How-To: Flanders Family Tome

Treehouse of Horrors XXIX – Act I Prize Guide – Transylvania Welcome Sign

Boom!  And just like that, we are thrown back into the world of old school vampires, and mummies, and werewolves! Oh My!

I have loads of questions about mummies, but we won’t get there for quite some time. So, perhaps I’ll just stick with what we DO have…an old school look at Dracula (and family) from a Simpsons perspective.

We are going to get a ton of Old School Dracula stuff.  And by “old school” I mean the good old kind of vampire that flies around like a bat, wears a cape, and doesn’t so much like the sun. These are not the kind we have seen in the silly, violent, over-sexed modern day vampires we see in TV and movies these days. And let’s be honest…when you start your career like Robert Pattinson, with a hacky, horrible movie like “Twilight,” you are pretty much doomed to be the “cute guy with fangs” for the rest of your life.  It is WAY better to make your mark as an older, wiser, Transylvanian Dracula, like Bela Lugosi.  No type casting there!  But, I digress…

The first prize…is the Transylvania Welcome Sign!
