    New Strategy at Gameseum to attract customers. Spray everything with bacon spray.

    He wouldn’t do the selling part though lol

    Normally I'd agree with you but the math that he has shared with us suggests that his arcade is hopping 24/7.

    What I meant was his whiny appeal for customers is desperate and sad.

    "We have air hockeeeey." Ugh.

    See. Just like I said. Constantly reassuring people that they are indeed open. That must be the reason there are no people....lack of knowledge about his business hours!

    It's like a bad movie script that the writer keeps bringing to the table despite being rejected repeatedly.

    #3819 44 days ago

    Desparate.

    Maybe he should add a laundromat to the museum ( more like a mausoleum ) where you could wash your sweatpants to bring in a few more quarters. Watching your clothes go around might be as good as some of the impressive video games.

    #3820 44 days ago

    How annoying it must be to just want to play a few games and then you see Steven start taking pictures of you to post on Facebook to prove that he has customers.

    Especially when it looks like your face mask is pulled down in pic.

    Yep....TOTALLY being a safe business. If it is pulled down (like it certainly appears), GREAT choice of photo to post after saying how safe and clean your business is.

    Edit: decided to double check original pic...yep, no mask over face in posted business pic. GREAT JOB coronaseum.

    Just thought about it....would those boys be running from girls, or from their smart decision to stay away from an establishment that allows improper mask use?

    I noticed that the FB post on if they wipe their equipment down after use got ignored.

    Sincerely, I don't understand how you could simply flat out ignore (like so many other ignored or deleted questions/comments) a legit business safety concern from a (potential)customer like that. I really mean this part! Plenty of time to type long stuff and post pics of air hockey not in use.....no time to answer a health safety concern???

    I stay off Pinside on the weekends. But every Monday I look forward to making a coffee and browsing through 60+ new posts. Thanks for keeping my Monday routine going.

    #3825 44 days ago

    Come on this guy is a PR genius despite the fact he cried around girls as a teenager...

    Are we sure this is Oldtaco and not that bot another pinsider created?

    Looks like after reading your post, Steven took it down.

    #3828 44 days ago
    Quoted from Flowst:

    What does that facebook post even mean? Maybe I’m just getting old.

    Nah....well......no faster than the rest of us.

    It didn't make since to me either. It wound up being a followup comment to that b&w photo of old arcade vs his.

    Some b.s. blah blah blah about how it's so good that it isn't like it used to be when kids lined up next game quarters and how littler kids would be run off/intimidated kind of thing by bigger kids playing, etc.

    Hence his comment about his 3 customers....make all your customer (yes intentionally singular) feel special that way.

    #3829 44 days ago
    Quoted from PismoArcade:

    Looks like after reading your post, Steven took it down.

    I thought so too....it's under more replies on that old arcade vs lameseum split pic I was just typing about.

    It's fine that he removed the post. It will live on forever here.

    Quoted from edward472:

    I'm sure he is typing a lengthy diatribe to his 'staff' for having posted such a photo.

    #3832 44 days ago

    Ok ok for non FB people....here is part of what it was from.

    Still seems odd, but hey...

    LOL so Steven is saying that if that type of behavior happened at Gamesuem (bigger kids hogging the games from smaller kids), he would have them running away whilst crying, sucking their thumbs and asking for mommy.

    What a badass!!

    10
    #3834 43 days ago

    I read once that sucking your thumb after age 5 causes buck teeth.

    #3835 43 days ago

    Could be those customers are thumb suckers

    #3836 43 days ago

    The context you guys added helps, thanks

    Can't help but think to myself, "What does Mr.Steven know, he wasn't alive then."

    A little positive energy towards the hobby is hardly a bad thing, albeit a little self aggrandizing on his part.

    Also Boob, where is that damned pic? This plaque is more broken than the stair climber-thingee.

    #3837 43 days ago

    Boob! The Plaque!

    #3838 43 days ago
    Quoted from Moli410:

    Boob! The Plaque!

    Yeah. About the plaque. I spoke to the guy last Tuesday who was annealing the stainless steel piece I gave him. Since the design was almost all black and the letters were just stainless steel, there was so much black that the laser literally made the steel glow red and the whole piece warped. So he had to order me another piece of stainless and will redo the plaque with black writing instead (just a negative image) so it doesn't turn the plaque into a boomerang. (His words, not mine.)

    That's where we are on the plaque.

    That is definitely “NOT Stephen” in that photo, his evil non mask wearing, different color sweatpants look alike there to ruin his reputation.

    Well....a black plaque is certainly better than having black plague...so there's that.

    Nothing good is ever easy !
    The free shirts for anyone who donated to#paytheboob before 8/22 are also delayed.
    Sounds like they will hopefully ship to donors late this week.
    And so on and so forth .....

    I can see it now. Medieval peasant pushing a wheel barrow, ringing a bell. Crying out, "bring out the boob, bring out the boob, bring out the boob".

    And he begged for money on the side of the road to afford the bell

    Others should be shipping directly to donors Tomorrow or Thursday.

    For the record these are NOT for sale and are being sent as gifts to anyone who donated at #paytheboob before 8/22.
