    The Pintrix guy?

    #202 24 days ago

    Really loved your interviews with Jeremy Packer and Chris Franchi! Keep up the awesome work guys! Your podcast is great!

    #203 24 days ago
    Quoted from solarvalue:

    Are we allowed to guess? Is it someone from Pinnovating?

    Oh yes you are allowed to guess!
    But just like Randy from ColorDMD I am going to ignore all answers.

    Fuck yes! Listening now.

    #210 22 days ago

    Not at all biased, but that was a great interview with Keith. Covered a lot of interesting stuff I'd never heard/known via other interviews or streams.

    The acronym for the second quiz had me pissing myself too, once I worked out what it was!

    #211 22 days ago

    I may also be biased but that was a great interview.

    #212 22 days ago

    Man, that Southern Hemisphere Pinball Championship sounds super awesome!

    I might be tempted to head along there myself!

    rd

    #213 22 days ago

    Very good interview.

    Glad that Keith pushed for the metal ramps.

    Didn't know that Archer was a resume for Stern.

    #214 22 days ago

    Marty and Ryan - you guys are killing it. Awesome show!

    #215 22 days ago
    Quoted from FalconPunch:

    We have decided like colorDMD that we would be super annoying and tease people about the upcoming interview with confusing hints.
    Ep45...

    That was a good clue. I thought for sure it was Ghostbusters or The Green Mile.

    #216 21 days ago

    Snubbing Brisbane as a location for the Australian arm of the SHPC was the high point of the podcast for me particularly in light of recent pronouncements and the subsequent nomenclature of the event itself.

    Serendipitous or deliberate? Works for me either way.

    Quoted from pinsanity:

    Serendipitous or deliberate? Works for me either way.

    Gotta be honest ... I’m not too sure what’s going on in your head, with your continual trolling posts. But I’ll play along.

    - Is there a permanent venue in Brisbane with over 120 pinball machines? I’m unaware of one.

    However, there is one in Auckland. And there is going to be one in Sydney.

    - does PAPA move from city to city? No.

    - does INDISC move from city to city. No.

    - does Pinburgh move from city to city. No.

    SHPC is moving between Sydney and Auckland so people who wouldn’t normally travel internationally can play. There’s going to be maybe 50 kiwis who play in this years event who won’t go to Sydney next year.

    Vice versa, there are Aussies who won’t come to my one this year. Peter Watt for example, he doesn’t fly.

    So by all means, if you think you can organise a better annual event, which goes around every city in Australasia, please go ahead. There’s plenty of room on the calendar for more top quality events.

    I look forward to the announcement of yours.

    rd

    #218 21 days ago

    I am very pleased that the inaugural event will be held in Auckland and was equally pleased upon hearing that the subsequent Australian arm will be held in Sydney since I was expecting to hear a different city read out for the latter.

    The events I hold and have held would never get local IFPA sanctioning (nor would I want it anyway) due to domestic pinball politics.

    We all have different objectives in the direction we would like to see pinball traverse so in the immediate interim I'm quite content to keep doing what I am currently doing though in introducing new entrants and those with no local forum ties to the hobby through sales and subsequent social gatherings.

    Hey bro, I use my Kang-sac to hold quarters during club tournies -- used it last night at Brewskies!

    #220 18 days ago

    3 clues I posted on facebook for the next guest on our show.

    #221 18 days ago

    John Trudeau?

    (He asks hoping not...)

    Ghostbusters... Mustang... ??? Not sure about the weapon.

    Nah... there’s no way. None.

    Hmm... that gun looks like it might have something with Kingpin.

    #222 18 days ago

    ghost has got headphones so guessing music or call outs.

    last interview was with keith and mentioned jerry thompson on beast callouts on ironmaiden and batman, and is listed on gb - theory falls apart on mustang and guessing tommy for music but might be the unmentioned call-out guy......

    #223 18 days ago

    Isn’t the call out guy somekind of race driver? Tanner Faust comes to mind. But that could be way off

    #224 18 days ago

    found this which links Jerry to mustang

    https://funwithbonus.com/tag/jerry-thompson/

    #225 18 days ago

    I now reckon the gun is representative of the "Thompson" sub-machine gun aka Tommy Gun (same name as Jerry's last name interestingly) used on Batman 66

    http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Batman_(1966_TV_Series)

    so reckon it is Jerry Thompson as done sounds and callouts for Batman66, Ghostbusters and Mustang

    #226 18 days ago

    You’re all wrong.

    The car represents Marty’s car in the ditch. Except it’s american so it doesn’t break down as much as the BMW.

    The ghost is what RGR did when everyone had to push it out.

    And the gun is what Ryan’s Mrs pointed at him when he got home with yet another pair of fucked jeans and some half ass tale of how it happened ....

    rd

    #227 18 days ago

    David Thiel is my guess.

    /I know mustang is the only connection.

    #228 16 days ago

    Hint 1. Mustang pinball - Jerry did the call outs
    Hint 2. Ghostbusters with headphone, Jerry did the sound for it
    Hint 3. Thompson gun, Jerry

    @Swinks you got it right, so did Dr Pin on Facebook! Well done!

    Rule (major) changes in sports.

    In football. World Cup 1990 turned out to be so defensively played accross the board, that FIFA introduced the back pass rule. When passing the ball to the goalkeeper, he cannot kick it up.

    In badminton, it used to be so, that you could only win points in your own serve. With doubles even having a second serve. Games could turn out to be serve over marathons.

    Both these changes were hugh benefits.

    The t20 matches in cricket really make the sport a lot more interesting. I know there are a lot more people that have never seen cricket to hear is an example.

    I'm amused that Josh complained about how Houdini says "shoot the ramp" or "shoot the orbit" and he didn't like it, then immediately after said he really likes Dialed-In, which does the same thing. Sure, it's not all up front on the mode, and they do call the theater for what it is and the phone for what it is, but there's a lot of "shoot the left/right ramp".

    I think everyone makes exceptions for games they like.

    Like Josh said it was probably more about how it 'takes him out of the game'.

    #240 6 days ago

    "I am KAI!"

    dammit

    #241 6 days ago

    You guys included the wrong call out from ST. It’s Benedict Cumberbatch’s line that people think sounds like “Kai”.

    #242 6 days ago

    No wonder you don’t hear it! Haha

    Yep. I realised that after the show.
    I went and found the actual call out. It's 100 percent khan in the rom. But in the game it sounds like kai. I am guessing because of the way the audio is being mixed together

    #244 5 days ago

    Thanks for the Elwin interview. VERY informative and entertaining. I’ve recommended it to loads of people.

    Okay - it was pretty simple as I got it just from the Josh Gad and bratwurst photos. Not sure what the kitten is supposed to represent (?). Are you saying Josh Kugler's a pussy?
