Quoted from vdojaq:

Hey, how did all of this work out for you? Were you part of the 19?

There was no room to be on the bus of 19 when you were riding RM's jock.

I used to own that Allied Leisure Thunderbolt. Bought it for $100 at the Expo banquet auction ages ago, sold it for the same hundred bucks to Bangerjay, who traded it to J-Pop for some artwork. Would be cool to get it back just for the story.

ZING!

Quoted from iceman44:

I'll be happy with just letting it sit there and look at it like a piece of artwork if nothing else!

How is that empty cabinet art these days?

Can someone recap the legal settlement?

This is my annual repost of my interview with John at Zidware headquarters in 2014...

He wouldn't allow me to take pictures or video (which I found out last minute),
so I ran to Radio shack on the way there to get a nice mp3 voice recorder.
Also, I had to sign some random ass NDA lmfao...

At this point, John's voice literally gives me PTSD.

Here's the best thing that ever came from the Zidware fiasco. Jeremy has been at Stern for a long time now, but yesterday, Stern made it official.

I won't have time to listen to this for a little while still, what was the context of this quote? Theres plenty of terrible things about all the Jpop playfields but I thought the art always looked awesome

Listened to it and thought it was great. Lost $7500 on RAZA. Who gives a fuck at the end of the day.
He seems like a kindhearted guy and his daughter loves him. What more can anyone want.

Quoted from Yoreland:

My money back! but I would settle for a statement from John maybe something like “hey pinball community, I’m sorry I used my name and reputation to swindle you, and then pretend like it never happened”

Quoted from Yoreland:

I do!

Quoted from Yoreland:

John is a conman and a liar! He was running a pinball Ponzi scheme FFS! I certainly wish no ill will to his family, but just because his daughter loves him doesn’t change the fact that he is not a good guy!

Oh and I have plenty of old emails from JPOP that prove he doesn’t give a damn about anyone but himself!

I’m sorry to have posted this guys as I have moved on for the most part, but when I read posts like the one above it makes my blood boil!

I will post no more on the subject.

Interesting he’s still in TX. Figured he’d bolt outta town after the Deeproot fiasco
