Quoted from Frax:
There's two sides to every coin, and rarely do you see the other side when it's lying flat.
I like this quote, I'll have to use this in the future.

Yup, I agree with Frax...Jared ROCKS! I hope it goes Grrrrreat. Exposure for pinball is great as well, but really it would just be fun to be there. The music, the pins, the atmosphere. Just sounds, well, epic.
Jared I had no idea you had fans like these, nay, groupies that follow you around. I admire their dedication. You have to start your fan base somewhere and these guys seem like dedicated fan club presidents on the make.
If Jared makes some bank on this I will be truly impressed. Getting it all together sounds like a reward in itself, but the money being made is gravy. Great job.
yep.... waiting on pix
who's posting links to some live-streams for us losers at home ?
wish i was there...
Jared, don't listen to the shit that other assholes are shoveling! No one will understand exactly what is involved in executing something of this nature until they try it themselves. This unfortunately takes Big Balls and not everyone has them. If someone doesn't like it or they think that they can do better, you tell them to get their wallets out. All of the responsibility is resting on your shoulders, not theirs. It's pretty easy to stand on the sidelines and complain that you aren't doing it right! Tell them to get into the game or shut the F%#K UP! When the bills come due, you won't see a single Hater in line to pay it for you. Hell, I went to the store yesterday to buy some snacks for my pinball party tonight and I spent $200, just on snacks and pop alone!
Keep up the good work! Wish I could have been there tonight!
P.S. My Balls are so big that I have small planets that orbit them! Enjoy! BigB
Quoted from Jared:
You laugh, but I swear to you that not only have I spent every penny on the parties combined features, but we are actually several thousand dollars OVER budget.
Just to give you an an idea , the venue is now $17,000, vanilla ice is $15,000 plus $1000 hotel + $2800 equipment rental. Flights combined cost me $6,000. Digital underground was $7000. The pizza for the party was over $3200...
I'm not bitching here, I'm just saying... People really want to paint this as me making a pontiff money... And I swear to God... not a cent is being made.
Just picked up some Nerf guns to donate and will arrive about 5pm! See you guys there!!!
I was down there for a while today dropping off my game and helping with setup a little. Played some games and saw Young MC soundcheck. I'll be back there in an hour or so- Barry
VIP is bs! Another hour before we are even let in the building
Regretting this! Can't listen to sound checks or anything!
Lots of pissed off people Jared.
Are you kidding? I'm standing out here and the doors were supposed to open for everyone by 6:30. If the line doesn't start moving soon I'm just going home
Just made it to Dallas with my group of 8 and checked in to hotel. We are heading to the party in 15 minutes. Had a blast on the ride up here.
The Facebook page is blowing up. Pics of the hallway or whatever packed with people.
That's the line outside to get in. A guy next to me in line just checked and the doors were still closed
We are hanging out at the NYLO bar killing time. I guess this is the new pre-party.
Come find us if you want.
Well the line ain't movin. So were over at the NyLo hotel bar enjoying ouselves. Better than waiting in line, doin nothin.
Damn Drama already, I hope this gets worked out or there is gonna be a riot lol! Glad I chose TBF instead.
Line's about half what it was when I got here at 7:30. If you have physical tickets you can go to the front of the line. I don't.
The facebook page has tons of hilarious comments:
"Who's running will call, TSA?"
"Hobo trash can fires are being reported from the back of the line."
"I heard Vanilla Ice got bit by his pet monkey! Then Coolio drank too many red bulls, and people waited more than hours in line because they opened the doors late. So Crazy Fun!"
"Where are Jared's epic waiting in line for hours porta johns?"
"This is the worst thing that's ever happened to me... And I did 3 tours in Iraq..."
Vanilla Ice has a pet monkey? I hope someone has pictures of that... lol
I would sure hope they're all in by now or a picketing I see in the future.....along with Jared with a very nice list of A-list pins shortly to follow haha
Back in the hotel from the party. Will do a full review tomorrow. Man, it was awesome.
