    You know, I liked him before, but he's like my freakin' hero now. Not only does he seem like a genuinely nice guy, but he never let the fame compromise who he is and the things he likes. He's as passionate about pinball as much as he is the music it seems. He's become an ambassador for the game on a national scale - something most of us have only been able to accomplish at the local level. Not to mention the band is amazing, and the new album is great!

    I just feel like he'd be a cool guy to sit down and have a beer with. That's pretty rare for celebs these days.

    Agreed, not even a fan of their music either. But respect them.

    “I said to my wife, ‘I ordered another pinball machine,‘ and she said, ‘Well, you’re going to have to decide which machine is leaving here.‘ I pointed at the elliptical machine in the corner. That’s the one that left.”

    Yeah, that sounds about right.

    He might be at Expo, so buy him a beer then.

    Robertson?

    I wish I could make it to expo. I'm fresh out of college, and my travel budget is pretty limited. Too bad there aren't any shows around Alabama. I'll be in Atlanta the same weekend as the Southern Fried Gaming Expo, but I don't think I'll have time to make it over there. *sigh*

    Ed loves actually playing pinball at shows, so if you see him at a show, ask him if he wants to play a game of pinball together.

    I keep trying to find a copy of the TV show he did in Canada called "Ed's Up" here in the states, but I haven't been successful so far. It's kinda like Dirty Jobs without the dirty part from the episode or two I've seen.

    He's a Private Pilot, and as a fellow pilot myself it was fun to see that also being part of the show.

    I'm a wannabe pilot. I'm actually going to start taking flight lessons soon. Been flying RC and doing sims for ages. I'd love to just cruise around in a cub by myself some day.
