Where Did THAT Come From: Spiffany’s

So I said what about Breakfast at Spiffany’s, she said I think I remember the episode and as I recall I said we both rather liked it and I said well that’s the one thing we got.

Where Did THOSE Come From: Abandoned Warehouse & D’Amico Summer Home

“Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in.”

Buongiorno Addicts!

So recently in Level 49, we got more mafia-themed stuff to make our Springfields more wise guy-ish. Two of the new items were buildings. I don’t normally batch new items together but since both the Abandoned Warehouse and D’Amico Summer Home come from the same episode (and only that episode), I figured I’d hook y’all up and offer a two-fer. Consider it an offer you can’t refuse.

Where Did THAT Come From – Bloaters at the Squidport

Ah the Boardwalk.  Not just the first word of an awesome HBO show, but a word defining a boarded promenade /pedestrian walkway bringing you extra enjoyment near a body of water.  Atlantic City, Seaside Heights, Venice Beach, Coney Island and many more.  Of course, Springfield has its very own version in Squidport and today, we’re going to look at the origin of the newest building we received for it… Bloaters at the Squidport.  (As a bonus, I also ramble about other Squidport items.)

Where Did THAT Come From – Honest John’s Computers

Beep beep boop… blop bleep bloop…. Schereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeechhhhhhhh….

Anyone besides me remember the days before computers? I know I’m not that old but it’s hard not to operate in today’s modern world without some sort of computer, tablet or tapping device. Remember when parents gave their kids a pager and a few quarters? I still reminisce about when my Step-Dad probably spent more money than we should have to build his own computer and I got to go on AOL. There were also great DOS servers you could go to for lots of text based games via your modem. Ah… the good old days…

Anywho… Level 44 arrived for tappers and the one of the buildings was Honest John’s Computers. Let’s take a look at just where this item originated.

Where Did THAT Come From – Ah, Fudge! Factory and Cocoa Beanie

Oh Level 40… how thankful I am for the distraction from my Easter prize hunting mania. Sure you stole Ralphie away from some valuable egg hunting, but I’ll forgive you for bringing a building I’ve been wanting with all it’s fun and puns. Of course, that means for this WDTCF, I’ll be going over the Ah, Fudge! Factory.

Where did THAT come from – O’Flanagan’s Pub

So you may have wondered why the heck an Irish Pub from Ireland is in Springfield now.  Well, first off, because EA can really do whatever makes them happy (Exhibit A: Abraham Lincoln) but really, there’s more to it than that.  It make sense.  It’s St. Paddy’s day in Springfield and nothing really celebrates a Catholic Saint who rid the Emerald Isle of non-existent snakes than the indulgence of green beer and spirits in an authentic Irish pub.  Nothing more “authentic” than a pub actually from Ireland… just saying.

WDTCF – Springfield Courthouse

Wookieelog… Julian Date 023…. today’s mission from Captain Alissa to seek out the last Level 38 item and write a Where Did THAT come from for it.  Danger is imminent and the subject’s originality may be elusive but failure is not an option. Scanning content for freemium building (beep boop beep)…. (blip beep blip)…. (leave a message at the beep)…..

Ah!  Here it is!  The Springfield Courthouse… an item that’s been coveted by tappers for almost a year and its itinerant dweller… Judge Roy Snyder.  What to say about this beautiful piece of architecture?  Well, click more if you’d like to see my ramblings on it.
