    Quoted from Colsond3:

    My point exactly. Keep insulting people. You're a real Pinside hero.

    Could you be more hypocritical? Go read your own posts and see how clean your hands are. You've already been quoted, so don't bother trying to edit.

    I didn't insult you, anyway. "Act smart" and "play dumb" are common figures of speech. I wouldn't have accused you of being smart anyway, so get over it.

    The hate in this thread is THICK. I personally like a little color bombing now and then. Just not on pins.

    Well I tried, back to the fights.

    #1961 1 year ago

    By all means, let's all stop arguing.

    The clown puke speaks for itself, doesn't it? So what's to argue about? Some people like day-glo pinball, and some don't.

    Just like when you're eating a sandwich made from pumpernickel bread, tuna fish, grape jelly and chocolate syrup.

    The sandwich EXPLODES WITH FLAVOR, but there exist certain people out there who would gag on it.

    Are they bad people? Is the guy eating the clown puke sandwich a bad person?

    #1962 1 year ago

    Can't we just get back to talking about broccoli? I hate when threads drift off topic.

    No, that was me sarcastically comparing clown puke fans to someone who eats a sandwich made of tuna and chocolate and jelly.

    See, the clown puke fans love clown puke because it makes the games BURST with mega-light and circus-color.

    Because more brightness and color is always BETTER. Just like more sandwich flavors in a sandwich are always better.

    Why not make a sandwich from crushed jolly ranchers and swiss cheese and cake icing and top it with 1/2 inch layer of mustard? It will BURST with FLAVOR. And that's BETTER.

    And that's our goal in re-decorating our pins with LEDs. Why not make a cowboy glow purple and blue? It BURSTS with EXCITING COLOR. And that's BETTER.

    MORE flavor or color is ALWAYS BETTER, no matter what.

    Seriously, consider the above Cue Ball Wizard translite for a minute.

    How could anyone look at that and say, "Wow! Nailed it!"

    And be confused and insulted that someone would think it looks awful?

    Maybe some of these pin owners are not all that bright. That translite does not look like the work of someone who works at NASA.

    Just think about it for a minute. Someone actually stuck those bulbs in that translite and then stood back and said, "Yup! Lookin' GOOD!"

    Looks like the bulbs were just randomly placed. "Random" is the look I think the light artist was going for.

    #1975 1 year ago

    Cue Ball wiz looking awesome. Absolutely nailed it. Looks like electric cowboys playing pool in a disco with hot chicks.

    #1976 1 year ago
    Quoted from tamoore:

    Looks like the bulbs were just randomly placed. "Random" is the look I think the light artist was going for.

    It's obvious that the LED "light artists" (snicker) are trying to make the translite art "pop" by placing a colored bulb behind the art.

    The colored bulbs almost always match up with an art feature on the translite.

    Like this cue ball, the only bulb that's completely out of sync with the art is the pink bulb in the cowboy's lower back, he must have run out of blue bulbs.

    See how the guy put a blue bulb behind the cowgirl's jeans to make them glow blue? But the color bleeds all over her hands.

    And there's a blue bulb behind her hat and the two cowpokes in the background. Them cowpokes are wearing demin ain't they? Make em glow blue!

    And he put pink bulbs behind the faces to make them more face-y. Except that nobody has a bright pink face. Unless it's a redhead at Disneyworld in August.

    It's simply a bad use of colored bulbs, the bulbs don't work with the original game art or the socket locations.

    A clever person could probably find spots in a game where a colored bulb actually enhances the game, but this flat failure, it's a peanut butter, cheese whiz and mint chocolate sandwich.

    And the owner proudly posted pictures of it. "Yup! NAILED it! Lookin' SWEEEEEET!"

    #1977 1 year ago

    And the modder said, "let there be (colored) light (everywhere)!"

    And there was.

    And it was horrible.

    My clown puked Taxi when I first got it.

    Someone took the time to jam this thing full of LEDs even though the ramps were badly broken, drop targets didn't register, it was dirty and the flippers needed a rebuild.

    To be honest, at this point I feel a little embarrassed that I responded to you and a couple of the others.

    You cannot make any point that is not just dumb invective, so what am I doing responding to it?

    You're getting trolled. 8 thank the mods for finally doing something about this issue. If I went in the pinstadium thread and just made 2 angry posts each day talking g shit to everyone 8 don't think I'd last long.

    Of course I wouldn't do that because it's sad.

    #1985 1 year ago

    The clown puke debate is not just taking place in the pinball arena.

    There is a hipster foodie trend called "rainbow food". Google it. Basically it amounts to dumping massive amounts of food dye in everything for no apparent reason.

    That is just odd looking. But at least you can see the ball.

    The LED and Mod thing on a non-working game is pretty common. Sad, but common.

    Yes, while it looks bad, it was quite easy to see the ball. As long as you don't mind flippers with lots of play in them and ramps that are missing a couple inches off the end of them, it played great!

    I just can't imagine taking the time to put all those LEDs in a game when it doesn't even play properly.

    Quoted from RJW:

    I just can't imagine taking the time to put all those LEDs in a game when it doesn't even play properly.

    I see it all the time when I'm called out to do service calls. I worked on an Addams Family that probably had EVERY SINGLE mod available for it, but underneath the playfield wires were hacked together with tape and the swamp was actually blocked off with a cut up credit card and electrical tape. When I asked why they sealed it off, they said, "because when the ball goes in there it doesn't come out." It was a broken switch.

    it does look pretty from a distance tho. Unless you have floodlights on it, it's going to be impossible to see anything when playing. Taxi is dark in general. This would be horrible unless you are playing outdoors on a sunny day.

    We made that cake once too. We let the kids pick the colors for the stack. Lack of red is disappointing...

    Perhaps the age of the children involved is a reflection on the adults who like rainbow pins...

    You will find no correlation there. We all wish the route cause of this was easily figured out but just like the current Opioid Epidemic this sickness seems to not care aboot age/race/politics/ etc.

    I mean obviously it skews more to n00bs but it also affects important people.

    It seems to me that age, sex, social status, IQ, etc, have a lot of influence on people's taste in fashions, home decor, cars and food.

    Taking a guess, would you assume that the age, social status, IQ, etc. of people buying single malt scotch is the same as the people buying cotton candy flavored vodka?

    When I was a kid, I loved candy corn and bazooka gum. Nowadays, the only candy I like is good quality dark chocolate. Most candy tastes like a disgusting blob of sugar to me.
