Episode Recap: “Great Phatsby” (S28:E12) – With Moderate Critical Review

phatsby-main

While the Wookster is busy getting ready for Winter Term (while being the most amazing Disney African Cruise Tour guide ever), I am stepping in to take a spin at an episode recap.  I have to admit, I actually asked to do a review, because I liked this one so much, but was then reminded that these are mostly “Re-Caps” and not so much “Reviews.”  I’ll do my best not to let my bias creep into this.

5 Things For Which I Am Thankful…That DIDN’T Happen!

thanksgiving

There is something about being a pragmatist, along with just a smidge of crankiness and pessimism that keeps life interesting, when summing up a list of a “things for which I am thankful.”

It has been written that “When you are a pessimist and bad things happen, you live the events twice…once when you worry about them, and again when they happen.” I don’t know who said this…but they were likely hit by a bus while tapping this into their Facebook status.

However, this is one of the key arguments that people use from the “Why Worry Be Happy” school of thought, while pointing out the futility of spending time and energy on worrying.  I choose to think that you get a double “reward” for your efforts.

So, when we come to a holiday like Thanksgiving, when we are tasked to come up with a list of things for which we are thankful, I think it is entirely within the spirit of the day to be thankful for a short list of things for which I am thankful, because they DIDN’T happen!!

Let’s take a look…

How Does the THOH 2016 Stack Up to the Past?

thohrated

First of all, I realize that we are barely 1/3 into the huge THOH 2016 update in TSTO.  However, while I realize that Alissa is resolute in her decision not to talk about items we haven’t seen in the game before they actually come out, I am going to break that rule and talk about some things we are going to see in Act II and Act III.  I, like many of you, sneak off to some of the “spoiler sites” and can tell you that what I have seen is…

Hold on… I have a text coming through. It’s from Alissa.

Uhm. Ok. So I won’t be talking about a lot of items that are coming in Act II and Act III. Holyfreakinshirt...That girl is everywhere…and she has some really threatening emojis!!

Actually…I really don’t need to talk about what’s coming, because I have a pretty clear opinion about how THOH 2016 stacks up with previous offerings.

And you might jut be surprised at what I have to say…

See the notes below about treating each other with respect on this thread.  If we continue to see the disturbing trend we’re seeing of attacking others over vandalism this will be the last non-vandalism thread we do.  And comments here will be cut off.  Treat each other with respect.  Just because players don’t like to be vandalized doesn’t mean they’re playing the game wrong.  Everyone has the right to play TSTO the way they want to, DO NOT disrespect each other because if it.

Also, accidents happen.  Just because someone tags you doesn’t mean it was on purpose and doesn’t give you the right to attack them.  Again, treat each other with respect or this thread will be shutdown and not replaced.  Thank you.

Silly Simpsons: Homerisms

So… one of the things you may not know about the blog is that we’re always writing things for those times we feel like we need “filler”.  Some get posted quick… others sit until it’s their turn to be birthed into the blog world. Alissa works her tail off on this site so it’s nice when she can just grab a post.  While down-time in TSTO can be great for redesigns, catching up on older content, etc., it can be a challenge to keep posts coming for the readers who enjoy the site.

This post is an example of one of those filler posts.  I found myself wondering what could be interesting that could sit in drafts to be posted whenever yet still be enjoyable for YOU and I think I figured it out.Naked Homer Running
