IT’S DECEMBER! December is full of Christmas songs, Christmas memories, Christmas movies, Christmas shopping, Christmas meals and more festive filled fun. And as December has started, we start to open the doors of our chocolate or other treat filled calendars to countdown the days till Christmas!
Last year I made an Advent Calendar filled with Simpsons and Non-Simpsons related fun and people seemed to enjoy that so this year I decided to do it again. I’ve spent quite a bit of time filling the doors with fun videos, images, links to do with The Simpsons, Christmas or just a random bit of fun so I hope you enjoy opening each door daily :D.
If you can’t see the advent calendar above CLICK HERE to go to the full website
DISCLAIMER: If you see parts of the calendar in German, It’s just part of the website and the parts that matter are in English so don’t worry 🙂
And if the calendar asks you some questions and you want to start a conversation then COMMENT DOWN BELOW on this post and I’ll be certain to join in the festive talk. Hope you enjoy this calendar and what’s behind each door, look forward to hearing from you all and Happy Tapping!
From the iconic, trend-setter “Treehouse of Horror” episode of The Simpsons in 1990, The Simpsons have produced these Halloween Three-Parters every season since and they aren’t showing a sign of stopping. In this annual tradition we see the Springfield characters, that we’ve grown to love, take part in non-canon stories to scare, amuse and to reference popular Horror and Non-Horror movies. Over the 28 years we’ve seen 84 segments (including the segments of this year) so whilst there is a gold-mine of hilarious, iconic and chilling segments there are also the segments that are just randomly annoying or just passable so over October I decided to rewatch all of the Treehouse of Horror episodes to familiarize myself with each one and to give a fun ranking of ALL 84 segments.
There are so many factors to take into consideration when I ranked these segments and because of the vast amount of segments there are surely going to be segments that are interchangeable and may change as time goes by so doesn’t quote me on this ranking. This post is my opinion and I may or may not have opinions different to yours or to other places so please just respect that and enjoy …
After loving the new Netflix original “F is for Family” and finding out that one of the main creators behind the show, Michael Price, also worked on The Simpsons, I knew I had to send him questions for my blog. Being extremely willing to take the time to answer my questions I am extremely grateful for the answers he gave. So enjoy …
Bold parts are my questions and the rest are his answers 🙂
Hello guys and welcome to a post I announce with such excitement. Remember when I got to send question to THE Harry Shearer? It was such an honour and when I decided to randomly ask if I could send questions to THE Chris Ledesma, I never thought he would actually say yes. Chris has edited and work with the music for the show for EVERY episode of the Simpsons. Just let that sink in!
Chris has a really good blog which he links throughout his answers and I’ve defintaly enjoyed reading about his journey through the blog. The day came when I read his post about the recent 30 year milestone and randomly had a thought to ask him if I can ask him questions. I didn’t ask think he would say yes and actually send me his responses.
I hope you enjoy his responses …
Clarification: My questions are in bold whist his answers are in plain text
First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing mum’s out there that work your socks off for your family – you’re amazing! Let’s use this day to celebrate the amazing deeds that mum’s worldwide do out of the kindness in their hearts
With today being the day for Mother’s, I thought I would do an organised ramble about TSTO mum’s: the ones we have and the ones we don’t have yet.
DISCLAIMER: to all you Americans out there … no, I have not misspelled ‘mom’ throughout the post, I just refuse to write anything other then ‘mum’ 😁 …
