TSTO Awards 2017 – Announcement!

Hello guys and welcome to a quick announcement post where I wanted to briefly promote a fun awards event that is run by some good friends of mine that have TSTO YouTube accounts.

MagnusRobert got in touch with me recently to announce that the TSTO YouTube community will be doing another TSTO Award Ceremony to celebrate the Best and the Worst of the events, characters etc from the last ceremony (late 2016) to now. I didn’t want to be a part of it from my YouTube channel (since I’m letting that sleep at the moment!) but I said I’d happily take a part of it from my blog so here is my announcement!

TSTO THOH 2017 – Item Calendar [SPOILERS!]

Treehouse of Horror 2017 seems to be the event that is receiving a range of opinions for the hate, the mediocre and the love and for me personally I’m enjoying the overall theme of the event, looking forward to building a Hogwarts style area, can see some super fun content for me but I can see the drag and the mediocrity for people that aren’t Pot(ter)heads like me.

But whether you love or you hate this Marmite event, there is content coming up and I’m sure there’s something for everyone and I definitly think that EA have done an good job at adding some classic items for some not into the Magical tone and I think people need to put in perspective how many years EA have done these events and the struggle EA would have had with making everyone happy with not that much classic THOH content left.

Due to the popularity of the Item Calendars – to me and to my beloved readers – It thought people would appreciate a Calendar to show the upcoming content in the game so – quite obviously – there are going to be SPOILERS so please DON’T read ahead if you’d rather not read that kind of content.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED …

J Stewart Burns on his workings in TSTO and The Simpsons

Hello my beautiful Tappers and welcome to an interview that is extremely late. Back in late May/early June, I interviewed Michael Price – which was really fun – and I asked him if there were any Simpsons writers that also worked on The Simpsons Tapped Out. He told me about J Stewart Burns who writes for The Simpsons and also helps over at Tapped Out. I soon had his email and was very excited to get a response quickly – especially since he started his reply by saying his wife was about to go into labour! Really don’t know why I didn’t post this interview nearer that time but found this post in my drafts recently …

So I am extremely grateful that J Stewart Burns got back so I hope you enjoy his answers …

Homerpalooza Item Calendar [SPOILERS!]

Hello Musical Tappers and welcome to a post that I created to be of guidance for those tappers looking ahead, planning those donut farms and scouting out which items to buy. This Homerpalooza event is chockablock of AMAZING items, in my opinion, so I know my donut bank is going to be low by the end of this festival.

I’m more of a visual reader so I know when looking for spoilers I would have appreciated a visual version of dates and what items were going to hit on each day so read on for a visual calendar of the items to come in this Musical Extravaganza …

THIS POST CONTAINS HEAVY SPOILERS ABOUT THE ITEMS TO COME SO PLEASE DON’T CONTINUE READING IF YOU WOULD RATHER AVOID SPOILERS 😀

TSTO – Some “Singing” Speculation

If you came here to listen to me sing this entire post from the title then get ready to be disappointed 😂

We are mid summer and last day of this Pride Day mini-event so that can only mean one thing … EA give us a two month break to let us enjoy our personal holidays? HAHAHAHAHA …

No. EA have definitely gotten into this routine of update after update and if I’m being honest … I like it. Just as long as they don’t “run out of ideas” because they’re going at an unsustainable rate. So with something lurking around the deep dark corners of the EA servers and from the clues that they’ve given, I’m getting very excited! 😊

Some enjoy some speculation and ideas of what’s to come in the next Tapped Out update …

What I Learned from … Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone

Philosphers Book

Whether you call it Philosophers Stone or Scorers Stone – Harry Potter and the [preferred adjective] stone is a beautiful book – in my opinion – that brilliantly sets up an amazing series that has definatly changed the lifes of many children and adults globally. I was definitely one of them. I vividly remember the day that my mum had finished the series and told me I had to start reading them. So I took the first book on our annual Hunstanton trip and could not put it down. I remember going through the series so quickly and crying near the end because I knew there wouldn’t be more to read.

Since Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone was published on the 26th June 1997, it is the 20th anniversary of it’s release! And to mark this milestone I thought I’d break down what the first book in this series taught me as I grew up. I hope you enjoy …

This post does contain SPOILERS of the first book but if you haven’t gotten to the reveal of the first book then where have you been the last 20 years? 😀

What event shall I write about?

Dr Nick

Heya everybody, hope everyone is feeling well and surviving Monday so far. EA has given us this Military update in the unexpected form of a mini event. Whether I like it or not is up for another post but, as I count these mini updates as (easy-going) background fun, we have a bit of lull before the next “BIG” thing.

So … I wanted to do something that I keep saying I’ll do and that is share event ideas. I have so many event ideas and I always want to share them but I barely do and it’s a shame so I will start to do more event ideas in between events and maybe a few in events 😁.

Happy Wedding Anniversary Homer & Marge! 

On this day, February 23rd 35 years ago, Marge Bouvier and Homer Simpson got married!


Marge: Maybe our next anniversary will be romantic. Aww, look, Homey, our wedding cake!

Homer: You mean there’s been cake in our freezer for eleven years? Why was I not informed?


If the Simpsons didn’t exist on a floating timeline (so characters don’t age, basically) then it would be their 35th Wedding Anniversary after being married on February 23rd in 1982. That’s impressive! I’ll have whatever anti-aging products their using …

We first get a glimpse into the relationship of Homer and Marge before marriage in the episode “I Married Marge” which is episode 12 of season 3.
Season 3 is probably my favourite Simpsons Season due to many of my favourite episodes featuring in this season and this episode is no different. It’s got jokes, heart, flashbacks and quotable dialogue all packed into a really sweet episode.
(Seriously, if you haven’t watched it then 1) *rolls eyes* and … 2) watch it! You have to today because of their anniversary)

To sum up this great episode here is the SimpsonsWikia synopsis:
In flashback, the year is 1980, and Homer andMarge are dating. After seeing a Star Warsmovie, they get busy afterwards – and Marge finds out she is pregnant with Bart. When Homer finds out, he proposes to her, and then tries to find a higher paying job. He goes to the new power plant, only to be rejected. When the baby’s things are repossessed, Homer decides they’ll be better off without him – until Marge comes to find him.

This episode teachers that nothing can stand in the way of love. The love that Homer and Marge portray is so sweet, you can’t help but love the animated couple.
Let’s face it … Homer can be a jerk. Although beer and other stuff persuades him, he often finds himself back with Marge and no matter what stupid things they do against each other, nothing can stop their love ❤. Marge see’s behind his silliness and flabs and see’s the fatherly love that has developed in him.

(I better stop now before I start tearing up 😁 …)

How has Marge’s and Homer’s relationship affected your love life? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below and Happy Tapping …

Around the World in 10 Days #5: Tanzania

Howdy tappers. Here on a Friday evening for another Around the World in 10 Days post. Yep, we’re at Number 5. We’re halfway there and I have a bit of a confession to make … We got all of the great ones done first. Sorry, but we’ve only got good, mediocre and meh ones left. This was by accident because I chose the country order by starting with UK and going the most “sensible” journey around the world, ending at Brazil because that’s the Act 3 theme.

Put your shirts and shorts on because we’re going somewhere hot with some beautiful picture opportunities (so yes, your phone has other abilities then Tapped Out *gasp*)

So … Enjoy your ride to Tanzania
