Santa’s Little Helper!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

By now you all should have seen, when you logged into your games, that Santa’s Little Helper has a new animated task!

And if you didn’t already have SLH you were awarded him for free. 

This is all part of the 30th-anniversary celebration of The Simpsons.

So try it out and have a little visual fun with SLH!

Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S1 E1 “Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire”

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!  Most of you know Totbox from the comments and several fun posts Tot’s written here on the site.  Over the last couple of weeks Tot and I have been kicking around some post ideas that started with Tot’s reminiscing about Season 1 of the Simpsons.  After  a few ideas we settled on letting Tot’s creativity run wild…and a fun Throwback Thursday feature here on the site.
Each week Tot’s going to take us on a trip down memory lane as we throw it back to Season 1 of the best. show. ever.
So enjoy the newest feature on Addicts…and Tot’s musings about Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire… (and given the stress of the last day or so, I think we all could use a fun little trip down Simpsons memory lane…)

Merry Christmas Time Travelers!!

On November 22nd 1989 (when BTtF2 premiered) I borrowed Doc Brown’s Delorean, to the Old West? No! To the FUTURE!!! All the way to December 17th 1989… (In hindsight I could have just waited for time to pass naturally) when The Simpsons’ Season 1 Episode 1 aired.

Rounding the curve, dead last… a Christmas character

The holidays.  Snow in Springfield, Homer Santa flying overhead, Christmas Lights that don’t light up because the Brown Trash Wookiee never took them down.  You feel the spirit, right?  Reminds me of a place where a sadistic man with government experience can feel right at home.  No, not the DMV sillys, my home.  Where else would I go to write stuff for you dear reader?

With Christmas, Kwanzaa, Solstice, etc. right around the corner and Hannukah already blazing away, I thought I’d go back and talk about a character EA brought to the game during the 2012 Holiday Event.  Like Homer, I’m just a big kid and also love Christmas so much.  Without further ado, the one, the only, the non-homework eating Santa’s Little Helper aka SLH for acronym-loving tappers.
