Hey hey hey friendereenos!

Wookiee popping by just with a fun little post about some Simpsons news for y’all. Full disclosure… school is kicking my tail and I miss all the amazing readers here but every now and again Alissa the Amazing says, “Hey Wook, you wanna write about this?” and I can’t help but toss my thoughts down real quick for anyone interested.

With all that being said, it’s time for some Simpsons news!!!

Diary of a Wookiee: Happy Birthday Simpsons!

Hey hey hey friendereenos!

April 19th, 1987… a day that will live in infamy… wait that’s wrong… famousness? Familiarity? Facetiae? Fadoodle? I’m sure it’s an F word of some sort that’s good. Do YOU recognize the date?

Simpsons News: Comic Con 2016 and MORE

Hey hey friends!

With a bit of downtime happening for all of us, I thought it might be time for another edition of Simpsons News. Season 28 is rapidly approaching (seriously… less than two months!) and that generally brings a rush of news our way. It also helps that Comic Con just happened which always brings stuff straight from the showrunners mouths. Despite the fact that I know all of you readers have access to the ultraweb, I figured I’d conglomerate some fun news in one place with links and videos. Without further words, let’s get to it.

Simpsons News: Words, Kubrick, Grammer and more!

How ya bean dune peanuts?

Once again it is time for the resident walking carpet to pop in with some more Simpsons News for all my favorite tappers.  I know anyone with a computudora and access to the interwebs can find this stuff, but we like to collect it all for you just in case.  The world is one big place but one of the things which brings me joy has always been The Simpsons.  I quote it in life, joke with coworkers/classmates, write on a blog about it… it’s just always there.  Who’d have thought almost 27 years ago that these silly yellow characters would still be around?  Periodically, we like to share some of the fun stuff we’ve found so jump beyond the break if this sounds like something you’re interested in.

More Simpsons News for Chew

Yeehaw and howdy cowdudes and dudettes!  How’s life?

The world is one big place but one of the things which brings me joy has always been The Simpsons.  I quote it in life, joke with coworkers/classmates, write on a blog about it… it’s just always there.  Who’d have thought almost 27 years ago that these silly yellow characters would still be around?  Seriously, there are people who have never lived in a world without them (barring those poor folks in North Korea).  Anyhoo… it’s time for the resident walking carpet to pop in with some more Simpsons News for all my favorite tappers.  I know anyone with a computudora and access to the interwebs can find this stuff, but we like to collect it all for you just in case.

So what’s new? Simpsons News that is.

Yeehaw and howdy cowdudes and dudettes!  How’s life?

Wookiee popping in with just a bit of Simpsons News for all my favorite tappers. In fairness, Alissa the Amazing did a lot of the work finding a bunch of this stuff but let me keep my desk for the News.  Also probably wanted to keep me in place due to the amount of pants I wear under said desk lol.  Now that that fuzzy image is in your brains… let’s get on with the program.

Simpsons News: Memes Forever, Homer LIVE, Duffman, and more

Hello hello hello friends.  Wookiee popping by with another edition of Simpsons News… where I take the information anyone with fingers, the internet, and the desire to Oogle ‘Simpsons News’ can find and then post it all in one concise place for your reading enjoyment.  I know not everyone looks for stuff about The Simpsons every week so, every once in a while, we like to share some fun stuff for our favorite tappers. In all transparency, this list comes mostly from Alissa as she often sends me fun stuff she finds by email. Special thanks to her and I hope you enjoy this all as much as I did.

Simpsons News: Even more articles from the fuzzball

And in recent news… more articles I’ve saved up from the last week.  While I know anyone with fingers, the internet and the desire can Oogle and post about Simpsons News, I also know some folks don’t think about the Best. Show. Ever. as often as me.  Not a day goes by where I don’t experience real life and think, there’s a Simpsons episode about that.  I know… I’m weird.  Anywho… the interweb has had a lot of stuff recently and I thought I’d share.  I wrote a quick blurb for each but of course, the articles are where the whole info is.

Simpsons News: Cool Articles You May Have Missed

Good something Springfield building Addicts!

Wookiee popping by to share some recent news articles about the Best. Show. Ever. Periodically we like to share these with y’all. I briefly talk about each one but click on the links for the real meat and potatoes of each.

First off… something for the gamers. While I never really understood the fascination with Minecraft, my young nephew is obsessed with it. Lots of other kids too based on some Halloween costumes I saw. Minecraft is a poor parents dream considering you can just paint old cardboard boxes I suppose. Anywho… word has it that The Simpsons are joining the game. Check it out.

Simpsons Minecraft

 

Here’s the announcement from Xbox:

Of course, if you never saw it the couch gag for “Luca$” (S25:E17) was done completely minecraft syle.  Pretty cool.

Next up… the A.V. Club is running an entire week of Simpsons content in honor or the 25th anniversary of the show becoming a weekly primetime series.  Here’s the announcement:

So far the articles have been pretty cromulent.  Here’s their review of “Bart’s New Friend” (S26:E11).

http://www.avclub.com/tvclub/simpsons-barts-new-friend-213699

Also a really good read about what it’s like to write for the Best. Show. Ever.  It’s basically an interview with writer Michael Price.  I really enjoyed the insights.

People magazine also got in on the celebration with a good article including 25 touching moments in The Simpsons.  I smiled remembering the moments on this list although they forgot one of my favorites.  A flashback with Homer and Marge from “Girls Just Want to Have Sums” (S17:E19).

“C’mon baby, the only math you need is you plus me equals forever.”

I love this line and must admit to have used it once.  Here’s the article:

http://www.people.com/article/simpsons-touching-moments

The next article I wanted to share is info on the show’s recent Je Suis Charlie moment.

Je Suis Charlie Simpsons

 

Last up just because I love this article, I really felt I had to share info about Simpsons Superman Sam Simon.  It is sad to know the co-creator of the Best. Show. Ever. is dying of cancer, but if you hadn’t heard about him donating his $100 million fortune to charity, it bears repeating.  Here’s the NY Daily News article from last November.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/dying-simpson-co-creator-donate-fortune-article-1.2006203

The info was brought out in the news again this week courtesy of NBC so I felt it’d be pertinent.  All I can say is Sam seems like a bonafide awesome dude and I’m so thankful for The Simpsons being in my life.  Best wishes to him and his family and tons of fan love.

Well that wraps up this edition of sharing Simpsons News.  Hopefully you enjoyed one or two of the articles.  Keep it classy and take life one tap at a time.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

 

Simpsons Halloween News: Every. Treehouse of Horror. Ever.

Hey there squishers, crashers and general alien warfighters!

Wookiee popping by with some Simpsons Halloween News.  Between college, mid-terms, and a job fighting zombies in the apocalypse at Knott’s Scary Farm, I haven’t been around much and for that I apologize.  Alissa the Amazing and Bunny Foo Foo have been manning Fort Addicts awesomely.

In a rare break from cell biology, Roman history, women’s rights issues, politics of WWI and general resting of my bones/voice, I decided to catch up on some Simpson’s news and what to my weary eyes should appear but a commercial announcing that FXX is broadcasting 24 Treehouse of Horror episodes in a row on Sunday 26 October 2014.  Starting at 9 AM, FXX will be all-TOH for a solid 12 hours.

FXX Simpsons Halloween

I know everyone doesn’t have availability to enjoy this but I thought I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention it here for those that do.  I won’t be able to watch all of it but my DVR will certainly be recording 12 hours of Halloween entertainment.  Here’s a couple articles I found with more info.  Apparently FXX will also have mini-marathons throughout the following week.  The schedule is in the second article.

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2014/10/21/fxx-announces-halloween-programming-including-12-hour-simpsons-treehouse-of-horror-marathon/317816/

Best news is that FXX stated they have more themed marathons planned for the future.  Woo hoo!

Hope this event finds everyone well.  I’m plugging away at it just like the rest of you and can admit I’d be lost without my sister Addicts.  Much love as always from the resident fuzzball.  I’ll be back with my usual presence November 3rd. TTFN… Wookiee out!

P.S.  If you’re curious about the zombie fighting (I pronounce that ‘Zambies’ by the way), check out this video.
