Quoted from cliff_clavin:

The guy doesn’t care about the pinball...not point in pestering him.

OP, he's just not that into you.

I love it when celebs are also into pinball machines like Alice Cooper or Slash maybe some others but just because some celeb has a pin given to him doesn't mean he gives a hang about pinball.

And when he decides to sell it, hopefully he contacts the OP and not just pump it through an auction house.

He only has a pinball because someone gave it to him, and then someone else showed up at his house to set it up.

One of the things my Brotato Lou and I talked about while I was there was that he was ready to start selling off his giant collection of Hulk memorabilia because it was getting out of control. Too much stuff. This fine machine is just another Hulk collectors' item for him. When he's tired of it, who's gonna get first shot? That guy with the hot dog hat. I also told him I liked the Hulk bust he had in the shop...

I spent 6 1/2 years waiting on a Space Shuttle project (hi Greg! Thanks!) I can wait him out.

So. Whatchu boiz think I should say? Too bad you can't do two polls on one thread...

Probably stuck in one of the kickouts in the slinghshot areas. That's where hangups usually happened on my Hulk.

#257 2 years ago

Personally I would “Just say no”, but the whole thread is counting on you!

#258 2 years ago

Pics? Please tell me Lou knows how to take pics with his phone.

#259 2 years ago

Well, at least he is playing it!

#260 2 years ago

Just asked for a pic of the stucky...

#261 2 years ago

Can't wait.

"K"
not how I would imagine the hulk to communicate.

"Tomorrow I have to go to the drugstore and buy film, then take pictures, go to the photo mat, buy more film, then new pictures and again to the photo mat, then kinkos, then home to sign into Aol to find the attachment is too big...."

#264 2 years ago

"NO PICTURE, HULK SMASH!"

#265 2 years ago

Maybe...

customer service recommends giving that slot machine a little bang on top with a closed fist to reset. You think he is up to it?

Ask your brotato if he wants to hang one Sat.

#267 2 years ago

I'm guessin' "Fix the slot machine" in thrifty Lou speak means bring lots of quarters.

Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

Maybe he and Steven Seagal can team up.

I’d rather he joined forces with Chuck Norris. Chuck could beat them up and Lou could make faces and arrest them.

If you want to see a very uncomfortable Lou check out his appearance on the Eric Andre show.

I had to look this up. Here it is. He must have been wondering how the hell he ended up there.

Is that show supposed to be funny? I actually felt sorry for Lou for a couple of minutes.

Quoted from mcluvin:

Is that show supposed to be funny? I actually felt sorry for Lou for a couple of minutes.

I just googled it and apparently it's "for real", so that was real discomfort from Lou:

Returning to Adult Swim this month for a fourth season, “The Eric Andre Show” has the nominal look and feel of a talk show, but stands apart for no shortage of reasons – particularly the fact that guest stars rarely know exactly what they’re in for.

“The show is a Google click away, and people just don’t do research. They’re coming in blind,” Andre said.

Thus, they’re unprepared for the quasi-psychological torture that the show delights in inflicting upon its guests.

And it’s proven pretty easy to do so — because people don’t do the research, and because the framework of the format is so deceptive. “When people think ‘press,’ I think a lot of actors and musicians are just like, ‘Oh yeah, press day. I’ll go out and blab about me and blah blah blah,” Andre said. “There’s no show like ‘The Eric Andre Show’ on TV right now, so they’re not like, ‘Oh I’d better gear up because I’m about to get attacked.'”

I hope Lou doesn't get severely ill from the Covid. I wonder if he has gotten it already?
I know he is the Hulk and all, but he's not a young buck anymore.

Looks like he still enjoys the game, or at least hearing it...
