"All in the Family" and "Archie Bunker's Place" have been mentioned a few times as there's basically always a pin at Kelsey's / Archie's bar.

Here's something slightly different though. Can't really post a picture, since it's not a physical machine.

Start at 2:10 or so if the time stamp doesn't work.

If you prefer Edith being Edith - jump to 10:24

Audio is a bit out of sync, but you get the idea.

Been watching a Swedish series called "Beartown". Was excited to see what I'm guessing is a D&D in the background

The Wheezer Buddy Holly video has Fonzie and Richie next to Nip It.

The band took some old Happy Days episodes and inserted themselves into them.

Rats, I see this was already mentioned, but anyways at least I captured Fonzie with it.

Remember when this video was on some versions of the Windows 95 CD?

I actually reported it in post #3258, but didn't have a screen shot as I reported it from having seen it in the theatre.

#3814 1 year ago

I used the topic keyword search but the key post that is tagged doesn't have Ghostbusters Afterlife in the post so it didn't come up, i only saw the posts that mentioned it without pictures. Searching the 946 keyposts is difficult without alphabetical order I missed it.

Yeah, the key post list really needs work. To many titles listed under "The", lots of posts that aren't listed, etc.

The in topic keyword search is how I find if anything has already been posted, but if there isn't a title listed in the keypost then it's useless.

At least now if someone does the keyword search my post will easily be found with the picture and title included.

... if it ever gets listed in the Key posts that is.

I'm referring to the find in topic search bar. If you search for Ghostbusters every post in the thread that has Ghostbusters written in it will show up in the search results.

The keypost for the Ghostbusters Afterlife will not show up because it doesn't have GB written in the post, only the incomplete posts without the picture included came up in the search results.

If you do the search now my post will show up. It won't be a key post but if anyone that does a search in the future will see that a complete post (title, game name and picture) has been made.

Ok, I did all I could to search to see if it’s been posted lol. Didn’t find it, so….

“The last American Virgin” great 80s teen sex comedy, with the most heartbreaking ending you will see.

#stars machine in the diner they hung out at.

That ending to Last American Virgin was BRUTAL. But sadly, it rang true and was realistic.

No, "... if it ever gets listed in the Key posts that is" as in: I post something that isn't listed and I've never seen before WITH pictures but it never shows up in the list of Key posts, but other "New posts" do.

Yeah that sucks. I see the key posts that have been made recently haven't been tagged in a few weeks.

Who tags the key posts? My Pinside staff member editing privileges don't give me the ability to tag key posts or I'd make sure they get done.

A closeup shot in an arcade from the 70's series "Harry O" starring David Janssen. Can anybody ID the game? The center bumper spins.

That was a freaking good private eye series by the way, still is.

1. I've never seen this game before, so I had to look it up. Found a nice video of it:


I've never seen that spinner post like that before. Now I want to try this game.

2. I'd completely forgot about Harry O, until yesterday when I saw it on Decades TV.

I've never played the game. It was easy to find, i knew it was a Ted Zale design because it's the same spinning bumper used on the zipper flipper game Rocket III

Just watched this again. I can’t believe they didn’t get some close ups of the Aztec given the story’s subject matter.

I just watched this again recently too. The Creep Show anthologies hold up very well. I think they'd make a great pin theme.

Strange one I caught last night on a rerun of ‘The District’:
1. A methed-up freak goes berserk playing a Wms. Big Deal and smashes the backglass with his fist.
2. Except he actually only breaks a sheet of clear stage glass they'd mounted in front of it, the bg (if it is one) isn’t damaged.
3. It's a Big Deal machine alright and they kept the title, but they totally changed the bg art. It's dreadful, too.
4. After all that effort they put in, not five seconds later he topples over the machine and the head is smashed open.
5. Good news is the scene began with the usual Hollywood background EM chimes in the bar so they finally got it right for once.
