    I have the ability to make a George Carlin pinball. Is there any interest? How racy could I do it PG, R , X (the seven words). Be honest. Figure the gameplay would be good. I am interested in if the content has appeal.

    thanks again-Jerry

    Was a George Carlin fan and saw him live. Not sure it would translate to a good pinball machine. Sorry, just being honest.

    Love him as a comedian,. Don't think it's a good theme for a pinball machine

    The only George Carlin Pin I want to see is Bill and Teds excellent adventure...

    Doesn't seem like the best theme for a game, but I'd be open to it. It would have to come in an adult version to interest me though.

    F... no, with all due respect

    Absolutely NO!

    George Carlin pinball.

    I love it. Most won't.

    “Everyone appreciates your honesty, until you're honest with them. Then you're an assh*le” - George Carlin.

    Even though he was a funny guy, no. I would say the same to Eddie Murphy. Just not the right topic.
    I am curious what you mean by "I have the ability to make a George Carlin pinball"
    Are you close with the family and could obtain a license?

    I'm afraid I gotta say No. And does anyone agree with me that he was REALLY FUNNY, then, after his heart attack he just got ANGRY?

    #13 3 years ago

    a resounding no.

    Love the guy, but the theme seems strange. But I could somewhat imagine a Rodney Dangerfield pin just for the epic call outs alone. Even then it’s still a strange theme IMO

    I don't think the theme translates overly well to pinball but considering I think he's the funniest person who ever lived I would almost definitely buy one unless the game just absolutely sucked.

    I think "Baseball vs. Football" would be a great mode.

    If you build this game, it should be showcased at Pintastic New England. Install a headphone jack if some of the speech is adult.

    Maybe pivot the theme to a night out at a comedy club or even a crazy variety show with various bizzare and funny acts.

    I agree with all of the above sentiments. Although anything with the 7 words is bound to be great.

    Pinball machines have plenty of word #7 already that's for sure, but #1-6 are severely lacking.

    Hmmm, now that’s an interesting idea. It could be themed similar to Monster Bash. The modes could be various raunchy comedians. Carlin, Dangerfield, Pryor, Rickles, Murphy, Kinison, etc.

    Back in the early days of the internet Carlin did an online chat thing on his webpage and I was fucking with my brother and told him Carlin was a huge pinball fan so he asked him what his favorite game was. He actually did say that he enjoyed playing pinball in pool halls and stuff growing up but didn't have a favorite game. The whole chat was great and I wish I had saved a copy of it.

    a heckler feature would be a must.

    Richard Pryor pinball too.

    Saw part of his show in Vegas about 10+ years ago. Walked out, he wasn’t funny. Seemed pissed off.

    You could make a really cool machine based on the theme. 7 Words seven ball multiball with a TV set on the playfield playing clips on a loop. “Weather forecast tonight: Dark,” when the ball drains. I also see an LCD screen incorporated into the gameplay playing a couple lines from classic bits. You could even have a demented looking Thomas the Train move along a short track ala Cactus Canyon.

    If you decide to build it PM me, I would love to help contribute.

    How about a machine like Party Zone, except the Captain B. Zarr character is replaced by George?
    Uptownsinclair’s 7 words multiball is a really neat idea. Collect all 7 words to start multiball.
    You could have two settings for words.
    Adult mode would collect “dirty” words, and family mode would collect words like “jumbo shrimp” and “cheese fon-don’t.”
    I think a lot could be derived from the Wonderful WINO Radio bit.
    Maybe rollover lanes spelling W-I-N-O to begin modes featuring Scott Lame, Biff Barf, Al Sleet, etc.
    Also need some drop targets somewhere spelling G-E-O-R-G-E.
    How about in-line drops in an area called “A Place For My Stuff”
    Each drop gathers the 4th, 3rd, 2nd and finally the first version of Your Stuff—which is all your stuff.
    Beyond the last in-line drop is a saucer, which represents the pile in Heaven of all your lost stuff— everything you ever lost, returned to you.
    One thing though, what kind of music would the pin have?
