I'm guessing JJP isn't gonna do a reveal at Expo this year. But I have been wrong, twice, in my whole life.
Also....need roommate this year since Violent Steve can't make it. Anybody like an over-abundance of weed, beer, and really loud death metal at all hours? Step on up.
Jesus Rob that pup is gonna get so loved/slobbered on by Sun mornin he's gonna look at ya and say "dammit, human,...can we just go home now?"
Quoted from Gryszzz:
DUDE. I CANNOT WAIT to see you ***moderated***. You guys are the best part of Expo for me.
Seeing summer dwindle away is sad, but then I remember that means Expo is right around the corner. Cheers ***moderated***!
Zen, I cannot wait to see you moderated.
Also, let's have a toast. But in moderation.
Sorry ladies...my roommate search has ended. I will still answer all of the pms in order though,...all zero of them.
Room reserved,...so lock up yer daughters, lock up yer wives, lock up yer back door and run for yer lives.
Now it's a party.
Atleast I don't have to ask you to wear somethin sexy J, you sexy beast you.
Don't harsh my mellow dude.
Concrete high heels fit him perfectly for Lake Michigan. Hope he's already wearin them.
Oh shit I just haphazardly gave away the JACK TWIPPY
"Roomie of the Year 2018" winner.
My favorite Indy pin tech and best guy ever to boot SuperMoot!
I'M SO EXCITED!
Randy gave me a lift back to the hotel after the PL party last year. Not sure if I'm really thankful for that.
I missed all the fun but yes, thanks for the ride Randy and Fattrain!
The 4 square targets. I bought new ones a few years back, and haven't seen any since.
Aww...thanks B. But I'm not havin any problems with them now. Just not gonna chance it. Those stand ups optos are nil.
If ya got some lay in around I will absolutely take them.
I am man boobs in adult mode everyday.
RZ rules though! I'll be playin it non-stop!
If yer plannin on escaltin this into a sub war just lettin ya know I got a 300 watt Orb that I will NOT be bringin.
Yes I'll.buy it.
$100 million dollars.
Seriously though yeah buddy! I will take it!
Oh Mrs. Berk...
JUST A JOKE GUYS...she is beautiful but she's also a Mrs. and you don't mess with a man's
In that order.
Think I'm gonna bring some cologne and just spray fuckers as necessary.
Or, in the case of el BRUT, just toss some on em.
Hey backpacker....come down outta the clouds off that mountain. That website hasn't been updated in a decade! Fuggetaboutit!
Sure it would be nice, but so would some 21 yr old pussy. Ain't happenin!
Now with "a pause".
Jeff bring Le Truck and don't fuck around seriously bring it.
King, remind me to tell ya the tale o Cleveland some time.
If you see this situation please correct it accordingly....according to whether dude wants to be an ass or not. 8 times outta 10 it's yes. Wannabe alpha fuckwads do shit like this cause they think no one will call them out. Some of us will. Do your part.
When I said "you" in that post, I wasn't speaking to you personally bub, I'm sure you knew that. I meant US.
All of us.
Don't put up with shit.
But that's a funny story K ha. I like you!
Since I have to rent a trailer, I'm debating bringin Breakshot too. It plays great, just no sound. I'd be bringin it to get it fixed, not setting it up on floor like some jagweeds that bring broken shit for a free pass. Think I will. Set it up in room till we fix her.
Well let's get with Rob and get my Breakshot goin then buddy. What's he want for that?
Quoted from SuperDaveOsbourn:
There has to be some point where un-exercised 'Expo-Cash' can be redeemed for in-house happy endings, being we have TA coming in for a show and smell on how to have success on 10 million dime (bags) of LV energy. Small time players can bring in a few games, and wish their friends like redemption tickets good luck on the toy to be pulled down on the skeeball wall, but they collectively choose the massage the one guy gets. BTW, on the 'matrix' of happy endings rewards cash, 16 to 20+ should just read 16+... seriously 16 to 20+ ?!?
Might be the greatest Pinside post ever.
HUGE THANK YOU to Pinsider MadPole for not only makin my dream playlist for ACDC, but also doing it in ONE DAY!!!! He is refusing payment, but I'll fix that next time I'm in Louisville. What a GREAT GUY!!!
You'll know my machine by all the Bon Scott loaded in there. Really excited to finally get a colordmd for Angus.
Only a few days away peoples WOO!
Also big THANK YOU to jm and DaveH who also pm'd to help. Thanks guys. I'm gonna buy y'all all the free Stern party beer you can drink.
Back to Bon.
I would also like to thank God, the Academy, mom and dad, the neighbor 5 doors down but not the other ones, Phyllis Diller, my cat Tux, LTG, everyone from Nebraska and Jimmy that bags my groceries.
I've never had a "bad" Expo, but this was one of THE best. Security was a little too enthusiastic, but they're just doing their jobs.
I really missed seeing the door guy that's been at every Expo prior. I always looked forward to catching up with him.
This year's highlight: Presley Franchi.
Haha thanks mar dudes! You know I love you all!
I think the REAL highlight of Expo this year was getting Target Alpha home and set-up and everything is working. Honestly think I played more games on it than any other new pin I've bought. Last night I played till 4 am. Been up till 4 every night this week THANKS EXPO.
Quoted from SuperDaveOsbourn:
Few missed MP, that is a fact.
Door nazi's were doing their job, and did it pretty well for the most part. Some better than others.
Cigs and smoke, next time simply call 911 and report a fire, that shit will come to a stop immediately.
Enviro concerns, largest fresh body of water in the WORLD is the great lakes, right next door.
Nature of Expo must change, and videos are going to be part of it. Great to morph, it might as well be called Chicago Morphball Expo.
Scatter brained guy is Tim Arnold, Pinball Hall of Flames. Good guy generally, hates the public (his clients), begging for money to make his next phase of the dream come true. Yep, he's hit and miss with public talks, some great, others not so great. This one, not so great with DeMar hitting it square on the head... 'why more when you have it now almost done'?
Online PDF was pretty much square on nuts for stuff from what I saw, so download it and use it next year.
Saturday sadly has become Sunday, so it too will suffer the same fate, but maybe more will come Friday as a result.
Door guys, dime a dozen volunteers in past abused or neglected, flunkies for MP. Today, not a problem any more really.
A different approach to bitching about something, is to offer a viable well thought out solution to the problem you perceive. GLWTS
DON'T TAKE THE BROWN ACID.
Well the smokers lounge is right next to the front door, so every time the doors opened the smoke funneled in. Also, it was 104 mph winds on Sat. Most people aren't hangin out at the registration desk all night though. I'm out there A LOT so sorry if it bothered ya.
I missed the old door guys too. They were a highlight for me.
Also worth a HUGE mention: this was the 1st year in 5 years I saw absolutely zero assholishness with game etiquette. Not sayin it didn't happen, and I admittedly don't play as much as most of you (too busy blowin smoke indoors) but I was AMAZED at the courtesy this year. Not one 4 player game, no rehitting start, no insults, frankly, it was astonishing. And I'm a little disgusted.
YEAH I'M A FUCKIN DRUNK BUT YOU'RE A LOUSY LOWLIFE WHO CANT DO NOTHIN FOR HIMSELF
If you heard this at 2 am, hope ya raised yer glass. We did.
On the way up I meant to hit Black Sabbath but accidentally hit this then we all remembered what a masterpiece this album is and listened to it twice. Was kinda the weekend soundtrack.
F you fourth floor.
*not you Todd*
**unless it was you**
My favorite Expo souvenir EVER. Hung out at his booth so much like the little "Hey Spike, right Spike?" dog that he gave me this. He laughed and said "Check out the signature!" I fell on the floor laughin.
I'm gonna be the best son-in-law ever.
If yer brave enough to get past that gruff exterior, Franchi is really an awesome, awesome guy. Bought the $60 movie poster and he threw the little one in. The Robin print he gave to me later.
