    Quoted from PismoArcade:

    Hmmmmmm.....Paytheboob.com now links to a porn site.

    Praying that's not one of his businesses. One line of work you really dont want hand outs...

    #3402 6 months ago

    Does anyone care about the shirts? I know people were offering to help out Boob any way that they could but I don't think anyone really gave a rats ass about the t-shirt business. Who owns it, how much money they are making, who cares?

    Other than not buying a boob shirt if it wasn't to support his issues, and especially if it IS supporting people on the other side of things?

    Other than that, not really. But that part is really annoying.

    Now, can Erik please post some more pictures of rare EMs? I find that far more interesting.

    How about a little Black Gold?!?

    That game looks amazing.

    Imagine removing those outlane posts for tournaments. Haha. Could drive a car through them.

    My guess is no customers, no attention. Does it to keep Gameseum relevant, which it isn’t.

    #3408 6 months ago

    I used to have a black gold, we’d have lowest score dollar games

    Quoted from bangerjay:

    Haha. So since it’s a Williams you can’t get a zero right? So I guess plunge and sling and drain.

    #3410 6 months ago
    Quoted from Mbecker:

    Were there REALLY that many go fund mes? That is insane. There was a basement flood AND a sump pump, separately? Some of these I remember for sure, but didn’t know there was quite so many.
    I started back at the beginning of this thread and love how the arcade is played off as almost a charity - this great gift to the community, and he takes in the donations and donated games. Who the hell starts a for-profit business like this? Total scam and sham ever since crawling out of that basement years ago. I do wonder how the story ends.. does the arcade close and Todd takes him in full time? How many more go-fund-mes in stephans future?

    He will be lucky if the arcade doesn’t close. If he is relying on it solely for income it’s gonna be tough sledding. I don’t even say this as some criticism of his management skills. I have no idea what he can and cannot manage. Arcades and movie theaters are tough tough businesses to be in for now. Trust me, we are barely surviving and it’s pure hobby to me with dollars put in and none coming out. And from what I saw in the other thread on the TNT book deal gone bad, it did not seem like Todd was in a great financial position either. Though who knows, with people holed up in their house and lotsa money to spend, he might have seen an uptick. In any event I doubt Todd would take over the arcade. There is a very good reason he is in the specialty renovation rather than arcade business. You are in the arcade business because you love it, not because it provides an amazing income (despite Stevie’s protestations otherwise)

    #3411 6 months ago

    So, how many bogus Pinside accounts has he created so far?

    #3412 6 months ago
    Quoted from pookycade:

    Don't worry, he supplements with Gofundme and Grandma funds.

    Wait. You mean arcade operators DONT make more than a surgeon?

    Paging guidotorpedo we need you to validate this.

    #3415 6 months ago

    Nope

    Quoted from Phat_Jay:

    Otaku makes more than a surgeon. Tens of thousands of customers pass through Gameseum each year. Ephrata bows to Steven and local business owners will go as far as having fund raisers just to pad his bank account. They’re so lucky to have this awesome Arcade.

    It's a blast.

    Since late June I'd lost power four times including twice today. Haven't had this issue in over 25 years.

    so on and so forth

    Where have I seen that saying before?

    Quoted from Otaku:

    You know that game you'd play in kindergarten the first person in line whispers something into the next kid's ear, so on and so forth

    Quoted from Otaku:

    which puts a wrench in your plans no matter how successful you are, how much you have saved up (any realistic amount), so on and so forth.

    Quoted from Otaku:

    There's no reason to get so offended over the fact young people are just naturally better at Facebook, Instagram, so on and so forth.

    Quoted from Otaku:

    I don't know you, don't live close to you, have never interacted with you, you've never visited my arcade, so on and so forth.

    Quoted from Otaku:

    I'm back to making a good chunk per month, but that doesn't mean it's not going to bills, food, utilities, so on and so forth

    Quoted from Otaku:

    I'm sure this thread will go through
    several phases of "He's disappeared, Boob's never seeing a new handtruck", so on and so forth

    Ruh Roh, he might of gotten away with it if it wasn't for those meddling kids!

    #3431 6 months ago

    Shouldn’t there be a pinside award for highest ratio of down to up votes ? And then if we have that competition do we get to allow someone to use multiple accounts to win the award even if the individual accounts get banned ? I think if one is going for worst pinsider of the year then this should be allowed. I mean sure it’s a little unfair to others trying to compete with just one account, but in the spirit of the award the worst pinside would be expected to try to game the system with multiple shill accounts. Right ?

    #3432 6 months ago

    As regards the multiple troll accounts I am reminded of that well worn line from Spinal Tap: “there is such a fine line between clever and stupid”. Clearly he imagines himself to be cleverer than he really is.

    You know, I think I just figured ole Stevie out. He idolizes Tim Arnold, wants to be respected like Tim Arnold, and wants to be famous within the pinball community like Tim Arnold. Unfortunately for him, he lacks any kind of understanding of what Tim has done throughout his life to get to where he is now.

    Veterans in this community (TNT in particular) could have helped point him in the right direction, maybe helped to teach him the meaning of the word 'humble.' In my opinion, Todd has done a great disservice to Stevie boy by supporting his approach instead of giving him a little bit of 'fatherly' guidance. A lot of other veterans in this community have really tried to help him out, but have been repulsed. Too bad that the only one Stevie boy snuggles up to is just making things worse for him.

    He has reached a level of fame of sorts. Not the path I would have chosen but it’s a path. I think another key difference is that Tim never set out to be a pinball legend. He just did what he did for his own reasons and became it anyway. Nobody ever seems to understand that most of the people who become well known and respected (“famous” versus “infamous”) got there because they did their job well and got eventually recognized for it rather than demanded it.

    Who is this Stevie? do we have a picture of him?

    #3436 6 months ago
    Quoted from EightBallTexas:

    Who is this Stevie? do we have a picture of him?

    Oh yes, multiple.
    Someone is sure bound to repost them upon request!
    If not, look through the image gallery for a young fellow with wild straw hair, scraggly goatee and most likely wearing sweat pants.

    Damn that's a pic from the great flood escapade when he fleeced many pinside members the first time. He was much better at grooming back then too!

    #3439 6 months ago

    That's Otaku, not Steve.

    #3440 6 months ago

    This is a little more accurate if you are talking to a sketch artist

    Please NO --- i can't stand to look at it

    #3443 6 months ago

    Is there a list of all the presumed and/or fake accounts yet?

    #3444 6 months ago
    Quoted from EightBallTexas:

    Who is this Stevie? do we have a picture of him?

    Look up 'really bad sweat pants' and 'really bad sweat shorts' in the dictionary. You'll see a picture of him in both locations.

    #3445 6 months ago
    Quoted from EightBallTexas:

    Who is this Stevie? do we have a picture of him?

    You could also look up 'mooch,' or the inventor of 'go fund me.' Pictures of him there as well.

    #3446 6 months ago

    Eureka...........took me a quick minute. He shows up in TNT videos...has to be same guy. He cleans the place I think.

    Wow hard to believe he scammed so many...
