Quoted from AlexSMendes:
Nope, but winter in Rio is not that cold..... weather temp never reaches below 60o F.
Sounds just like Minnesota to me.
I think I remember a post from when you got it. Don't remember seeing a picture of it lit up in action though. It looks great.
It breaks my brain. I switch into some sort of thermal vision and just assume that it's the hottest thing in the room.
Quoted from Spyderturbo007:
Lets see it!
Any place you can play pinball works for me.
Corner of the living room club unite!
With bonus good cat.
And bonus bad cat. (She's actually a good cat being bad.)
Edit : I know I probably shouldn't have TSPP near a window like that, but the blinds are closed a lot of the time, it's East facing and I've never seen sunlight hitting it directly. Also, it's routed anyway - any additional fade isn't going to kill me or it.
Also - don't think I don't realize that I could probably cram another one in there.
Quoted from xsvtoys:
Oftentimes when you have a "thing" like that going, more cool stuff will sort of automatically come your way when different people see your collection. There's something about it that makes people want to give you more things that relate to your collection. That is just one of the cool things about life in general. Ice on.
Back in late 1998 I was at the Northgate mall in Seattle. Walked into a Sam Goody (rip) for some reason despite never buying music at big chain music stores. On one rack they had a couple dozen CDs still in the old school longbox packaging. One was a copy of "To the Extreme." To my 26 year old mind, it was the funniest shit ever. I hemmed and hawed. I walked around the store carrying it for a bit, but then 26 year old me remembered that he didn't really have a lot of disposable income for dumb crap like that. Besides. I assumed when it stopped being funny in 10 minutes I'd have some buyers remorse, and what the hell was I gonna do with a copy of an album I didn't like that I specifically couldn't even open anyway?
21 years later, and I now know why I should have bought it. Just to wait until pinside came around, until I saw a load of pics of a complete strangers bathroom. Then I could send a PM, get an address and mail it off to it's rightful place. Damn it. Sorry, djreddog. I failed you.
(Though I did buy a VHS copy of "Cool as Ice" a few months later on Ebay and laughed my ass off at it for years. Yo, wassup wit tomorrow?)
