    I think there was an episode at some point where he said specifically that he and his wife didn't do more than one vote each, which made me think he's juicing the vote. Why even bring it up? I haven't listened to the show in a while because for several months out of the year it seems like all he talks about is the twippys. He's clearly fixated on it.

    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    Am I the only person who thinks Kaneda votes for himself over and over while changing IP addresses and identities like he did here?

    Hilton got caught voting multiple times against Knads a couple of years ago. Jeff at Twipy installed safe guards afterward to minimize anyone from doing it again. And with the passion that people have for hating the guy, I expect a lot of people might be playing that same game.

    #303 6 months ago

    given how man newbloods always flock to him I doubt he resorts to cheating. I mean the total counts we are talking here are a few hundred... not needing millions.

    He already lied about making multiple accounts on Pinside. Why would this be any different?

    Please...no one cares about twipy awards enough to sabotage them. Stop feeding his ego.

    Quoted from DCFAN:

    20 years from now there is a high probability twipys will be a forgotten very small part of the history of pinball.

    You're setting the bar kind of high there - 20 years from now, pinball could be a forgotten small part of history.

    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    If I actually listened to podcasts, I'd love to hear one from LTG . A great guy who is an encyclopedia of knowledge and interesting stories from his years in the business. It'll never happen, though.

    Has happened. Years ago Talk Pinball ran about 6 episodes. ( they are still out there to listen to ) Jesse Kujawa ran it and did the grunt work. Then he had life changes that made him spend more time on other things. And a different webcast burned through just about everybody you could interview at the time.

    Never know what the future might bring. My counterpart Ken Cromwell mentioned maybe doing a podcast.

    Time will tell.

    I voted for Kaneda. I listen to audiobooks, history podcasts, and pinball podcasts in my car. I think Kandedas are the best. He likes to speculate about the next game and I enjoy that. 2nd favorite is the Classic Pinball podcast. I love hearing the stories behind some of the old games. Poor man's is good as well. Super Awesome is way too long and I've only listened to a few. I don't really care for the Pinball Network stuff as I feel like they are trying way to hard to sell me stuff. Kaneda is full of himself for sure, but that makes it entertaining. Enjoy that baby!

    So long as you mean Kanada's the best of the pinball podcasts, carry on. If he's beating all of your audiobooks and history podcasts too then you're doing something wrong.

    Yes... beating the pinball podcasts. Kaneda ain't got nothing on Sanderson and post World War 1 Eastern Europe.

    I’d love listening to LTG in a car talk format podcast, but pinball related. Stump the Chump is the segment that he’d shine. Someone calls in with a pinball problem and Lloyd must ask the right questions and diagnose what he thinks will fix it. Then the person goes off and does the repair or hires someone to fix it. Then they call back in and explain the problem, make sound effects describing the problem, lists LTG’s recommendation and finally what the real fix was. Always great when the host is way off base but having LTG interacting with people in a show format would be gold.

    Did you guys see the numbers? That was the best part. Kaneda wiped the floor with them.

    The most embarrassing is the pinball show on the network. So much effort put in and they were almost 4th place. Kaneda smoked super pinball podcast and quite honestly, pinball network is not even in the same league numbers wise.

    That has to sting if your zach. Ouch.

    If you don't understand why kaneda wins all the time, you're part of the problem. I love the show and enjoy it for what it is. Talking about rumors and how dumb this industry is. Tournament players need not apply. Nobody cares. Have fun, enjoy some entertainment and move on.

    #318 6 months ago

    Time to reinstate Kaneda on Pinside!

    Primarily. Though tech things seem to dominate. I answer all. Not all are posted on Pinside, especially if repeated problems. No sense going over the same thing again and again.

    It would be conceited to think I know everything or am right every time. Fixing pinball is a lifetime on going process. And correcting me when I'm wrong, still helps others.

    Oh god please no.
    He is at his best on his podcast and at his worst when he is on Pinside. I don't think he can help himself.
    Glad he has his podcast and glad he has a lifetime ban from Pinside.

    This year he will have some stiff Twippy competition from Uncle Pinball's Podcast.
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/uncle-pinball-s-podcast
    Mark aka fireball2 is putting out some good, quick, and entertaining stuff. For sure he's not a replacement for Kaneda but I will be voting for him next year.

    yes the network is a big infomercial to shill, shill, shill Clever marketing to be sure you just need to leave the barnyard animals sounds out, stop the bad singing, lame banter and get to the point. Oh wait the point is for you to buy, buy, buy

    Guys, we’re four years in. If you still haven’t come to grips with why his podcast is popular then I doubt you will.

    But since I’m here, the reason I listen is his podcast distills much of the Pinside drama that I don’t have time to read in a compact, timely package that I can consume while jogging. And Pinside drama is entertaining, I admit it. I also like a side of rumors and speculation, even if I find much of it unlikely.

    Then I’ll listen to my other favorite podcast- Star Talk. So it all balances out.

    I'll never understand posts like this.

    I enjoy listening to Kaneda because I'm a radio geek and admire anyone that can do a solo show and keep it entertaining. Chris does that well.

    I enjoy The Pinball Show because of the chemistry between Zach and Dennis. Dennis doesn't suffer fools and Zach loves playing the part just to annoy him. They both make me laugh.

    It's possible to like one show without gleefully shitting on the other.

    ...and for those calling for the reinstatement of Kaneda to Pinside....I'm guessin' you don't know his history on here and the things he has said and continues to say about Robin, even as recently as his pre Twipy Facebook show.

    I never tried to listen to The Pinball Show until today. It was awful. Do all these podcast hosts have to be so insufferable? I don't understand how people enjoy this stuff. Especially the endless banter about unrelated things and the condescending attitude they all seem to have.

    #329 6 months ago

    yes, he clearly seems to attract all the butt-toucher fanboys to his side of the drama arguments. it's their source of acceptance. like when they buy and instantly sell every game they can to win the pissing contest with the other casuals.. car enthusiasts deal with.. I guess we have to too!

    I could do without hearing the term "world under glass" every 2 minutes, but I have to give him props for his interviews. He actually is one of the best interviewers I have heard in regards to pinball. He stays on topic, hits interesting questions, and most importantly, allows his guests to talk.

    As of this evening, 77,335 people have registered to Pinside. It’s neither unreasonable nor unbelievable that a thousand or so would vote for Kaneda’s Podcast.

    It’s irrelevant whether or not one of us likes it or hates it. It’s a people’s choice award. No big deal.

    You have this strange and creepy obsession with ZMeny.

    As a TPN Committee member I assure you The Pinball Network is doing just fine and has done a great deal to raise the profile of positive content creators. An award would be nice but it isn't something any of us require to validate our time or effort.

    Congrats to Kaneda on his 4th win. He earned it with his dedication to pinball, entertainment value and hard work. I enjoyed and laughed at his acceptance video. He should be proud of his body of work he deserves it.

    Not into ice cream, but we have drank the Kaneda cool aid and obviously more than just some of us like it. As the numbers dictate, Kaneda kicked the TPN's ass around the block and it wasn't even close.

    Is Kaneda perfect NO but who is. For some of us we like the entertainment and having someone who will actually hold the manufacturers accountable for what they offer up. Unlike others who do nothing but cheerlead in order to make bank

    #346 6 months ago

    Chris believed the vote was going to be a lot closer than it turned out. In the end, the ratio of chat viewers via his Facebook feed compared to that in the YouTube feed chat (not counting for overlap) was getting along similar lines to his share of the vote, which may or may not mean anything in itself.

    #347 6 months ago
    Quoted from Mr68:

    He didn't just win, he crushed the competition.
    973 first choice votes vs 347 for second place. That's nearly a 3 to 1 margin.
    Congratulations to all of the nominees that were honored and to Imoto Arcade and Jack Danger for a fun and entertaining job of hosting.
    Also, congratulations to Jeff at TWIPY for the transparency and to everyone involved in putting on a great show.

    I hope you're at least silently making up a list of people who NOT to sell to. I don't kick the hornet's nest with distributors...you never know when you'll need one. And Zach is a great one, both for Sterns and Escaleras. Love his videos, too!
