Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

No new Simpsons this week, but don’t worry they’ll be back next week!

Lots of things you may have missed this week around the Addicts Site:

Another all-new episode of Addicts Live aired yesterday!  Safi and I were back to give our quick thoughts/reactions to Act 3 of Rise of the Robots.  You can check the episode out here.

(If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)  And as a heads up…we’ll be announcing the next Showoff this week (based on Rise of the Robots of course), so that’ll give you a little extra prep time!

Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods? Have anything fun planned?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!
