    I would like to say that I take back my comment saying it was an epic fail while we were outside stuck in the line. I realize events such as this, to this caliber and being a "first" there are going to be problems out of your control.

    Jared got on stage between acts and got pelted with nerf bullets and apologized to the crowd for the delays getting in the door. I appreciated that.

    As for the event, it was truely epic. We had a blast. The musicalperformers were awesome and they didn't dissapoint. The whole event was eye candy and people watching. Diamond Jim Taylor is an amazing magacian, he did some tricks for us....and I don't know how he did them. I'd love to see him again.

    Baby Chino was great too. Such talent for a little 12 year old.

    It was nice to finally meet pinsider Fattrain in person...good times.

    I took plenty of pics with our camera and ill need to upload them. Until then, here is one near the end of Tone Locs setwhen he invited all the ladies to the stage.

    My game was played and not abused. No problem that I know of.

    Frax your local and should have been there.

    Oh but wait you and your wife would rather keep inquiring about the event and bash it. Give it a break dude.
    I would have liked to have seen yall do a better job with an event the size of this. I give props to Jared for actually pulling this off.

    Simply put, my wife said to me this morning "i had fun last night."
    Funny being a pinball person, I didn't play one pinball machine last night. I had my fun socializing with friends, people watching, enjoying the music performers, enjoying the magician and most of all boxing with Rusty (cidco) in the oversized boxing gloves arena.

    Quoted from Erik:

    Anyone get videos of Diamond Jim Tyler?

    Well my wife was about to make a vid of one of his tricks, and he turned the trick on her and did a trick where he sucked her phone into a balloon. He was very entertaining.

    All in all a great event. I do agree with those that paid for vip and didn't get all they were promised. Heck I remember early when he was requesting games on pinside, Jared stated pins brought will get them VIP status, be there for sound check, meet and greet with the musical performers and that pins would be in one room under tight supervision and that they could be removed today (sunday). Found out yesterday while dropping off my game that I couldn't remove my game today and now I have to leave work early on Monday to remove my pinball from the location. None of those things happened, to which I'm a bit pissed off about but ill get over it. Just note to self that I won't bring a game again at his next event I feel like that bridge has been burned as it wasn't one promise that was broken but several.

    Frax ...let it go.
    You didn't go, you hate Jared ...we get it.

    Can't say your high up on my charts either.... "my glass is half empty guy of DFW"

    Have you tried Church...it might brighten your day.....just sayin'

    Quoted from Marc:

    no issues with that.

    not here, I can assure you.


    Not really the issue.


    There are underlying tones that if you look back through the posts are divided by people that are local and people that are not. Jared is toooooo much in your face with EVERYTHING he does and locally we are just bombarded by it day in and day out (if not literally it sure feels like it). Two words come to mind: Narcissistic and Ingratiation.
    I do not like nor hate Jared...I am Switzerland. I am happy to take his money at a game of the silverball while being antagonistic and condescending at the same time (you know throws your opponent of his game). What I do absolutely loathe is how he has single handedly put a dark cloud over the local DFW pinball community. Yes Jared, like it or not, accept it or not you have. You were offered some advice in Chicago (not by me), something along the lines of "try just being a part OF the party and not always BEING the party". Try it dude, you might like it and I think 90% of us locally would too. I still think he as some strong attributes that could have done a lot for the local pinball scene but sadly I think most bridges around here are busy smoldering.
    Oh and least I not forget that Jared is solely responsible for the fact that EPIC has become a four letter word in the local pinball community here. I cringe every time I hear it, no matter the context.
    Just my opinion...maybe I'm wrong.

    What he said. Not to say i haven't given this advice to him as well. It has rolled in one ear and out the other.

    The nature of the problem is the over the top self promoting. Thats what grates on everyone.

    I remember vividly hearing at the Epic (Blah im sick of that word) party over the microphone, jared come on the mic and say something to the extent of "ive got an announcement to make about the Buckner home for children"
    I then heard someone jokingly complete the sentence "were changing the name to Jareds home for children"

    I about busted a gut.......it was hillarious.
