Uh oh. We are on page 6. Now what happens?

Quoted from vid1900:

When I was still doing movies, I'd get with both men and women.
A hole is a hole.

I wonder if I've seen any of these movies. I've seen A LOT of movies.

Is it true that Vid was Lord Humongous in the Road Warrior?

I think he might have also played RainMan in a watersports film......hang on, exactly what is a 'watersports film"? :p

Quoted from dmbjunky:

Don't forget about his two buddies, Popok and Beelow.

Yes! Popok and Beelow, those cult heroes from the past. What have they been up to I wonder? Cruising around in a van looking for trouble I bet........

Quoted from DBLM:

Vid, can we get an "Ask Me Anything" segment with you, the most interesting man on Pinside? In my one short year on Pinside I have learned that:
You have more practical knowledge on Pinball than anybody else.
You are tall and mysterious.
You have a great sense of humor and self.
You are well traveled and well read.
You find awesome bargains and share with folks.
And that you have pant difficulties.

Don't forget he's a flaming gay bird!!

#258 2 years ago

I've heard Vid likes his meat so rare, he only eats unicorns

#259 2 years ago

Pinball is only gay when gay people play it, not that's there anything wrong that.

Quoted from navajas:

Dude, what the fuck for you is categorically antonymous between homosexuals and rich old white guys?!
Jesus Christ. Just mind boggling. We live in Bizzaro World, I swear to God.

About 17 years ago, there was a golf driving range just outside of Sequim, right on the highway. My partner and I were interested in buying it, but the fellow that owned wouldn't sell it to us because we were gay. I asked him about that. He said he felt it was his duty to protect the community from people like me. I don't think the driving range is still there.

I thought his two buddies were Neil and Bob!

When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, he had three missed calls from Vid.

Vid got to Valinor on a skill shot.

Quoted from Dooskie:

My partner and I were interested in buying it, but the fellow that owned wouldn't sell it to us because we were gay. I asked him about that. He said he felt it was his duty to protect the community from people like me. I don't think the driving range is still there.

Don't remember the driving range, but though I've been coming here my whole life (my grandparents had property here) I've only lived here myself for about 14 years. Golf in this area is now almost totally dominated by the Tribe (Jamestown S'Klallam) and any Ma and Pops' (or Pop and Pops') in the area were doomed regardless. Ha, jokes on him, that bigot may have saved you from losing a lot of money!

But apart from anecdotes, I don't really get the point of the comment. Are we sharing regional stories, or making sweeping condemnations about a population based on one individual? My acre is kitty corner to the most hateful piece of shit I've ever met. He lives in a huge house with three outbuildings, boats, an enormous RV, orchard, etc... He hates me, hated my grandmother, hates his wife, hates my kids, hates HIS kids, hates his neighbors, hates my fireworks, hates black people, hates brown people, hates "orientals" and almost fell off my staircase (back before he knew to stay the fuck off my property) when I told him my two aunts that lived together down the road weren't actually sister spinsters, they were lipstick lesbians. (Sequim is New Lesbos, it's like Mecca for dykes.)

On the other hand, everyone within a two mile radius openly hates his guts and can't wait for him to just die already. So, who's the ambassador for Sequim, particular old bigots, or everyone else who actively look forward to the day he's dead? Maybe he's just bitter because almost 20 years ago he took a bath on a shitty old driving range that he had a chance to off load on a couple of evil queers but didn't pull the trigger. God, wouldn't that be awesome!?

Ha!

#266 2 years ago
Quoted from jwilson:

I expected more from Page 6.

Me too. Although I did like Navajas' back story on the owner of the driving range. 20 years of bitter cancerous rage seems fitting.

#267 2 years ago

Got to admit I am a little disappointed as well. Vid, you got to give us something to work with. Can we get an update on Beelow and Popok?

#268 2 years ago
Quoted from poppapin:

Don't forget he's a flaming gay bird!!

Who cares? That is the least interesting thing about Vid from what I have seen.

#269 2 years ago
Quoted from teekee:

Just another STUPID ASS PINSIDE THREAD that should have never been started and should have been deleted 6 pages ago!

Relax man...Vid started the thread, and he's a great guy. He just showed me how to polish my shooter rod the other night. Oh wait....Vid you sly son of a bitch!!

I haven't seen too many fruits playing pinball, now, Foosball is a different story.
Pinball always seemed to be for loners, which suited me. Disco lights and fights and hectic nights, just give me a machine (or 2) in a corner,a few beers and smoked up before I came in and I'm good to go.
Pinball ain't gay.

Again that proves my point, the racism is so deep, apparently even he can't see it.

Nor can you:

This thread is getting a major PLONK!!

#274 2 years ago

This thread is getting out of control. I don't think we need to rehash some horrible posts from almost a year ago that caused an uproar, received serious moderation, and got everybody worked up.

Sometimes people post things across the line, or that ride damn close to it. We are a community, and all communities have issues and disagreements here or there. But I don't think we should rehash and turn it into a second expo thread.

#275 2 years ago

this thread is getting derailed

#276 2 years ago

I sense some page 6 shit starting to happen.

#277 2 years ago

This thread is funny. People should be able to laugh a themselves no matter who or what they are. I'm white redneck who still lives in the same town he was born in. I will probably have the same boring ass career my whole life because I am afraid to venture out. I am in no position to condemn anyone. Now, a friendly poke is another story.

#278 2 years ago

Too many people get their panties in a twist because the fairy tales they believe in are at odds with somebody else's fairy tales. I am by no means a SJW but what people do in the privacy of their own home or in their day to day lives does not impact me and is none of my business. Relationships are tough and if you are lucky enough to find somebody that makes you feel special and that you love then that is awesome! Also, nobody else's business.

Pinball is just for Drifters and Homosexuals

OMG we're all gangsters now. The "pins". Reminds me of "the warriors" movie. Matter of fact there are pins in that movie.

I know."A hot night in the life of a pinball addict"...am I living in the wrong place? I was finishing tearing down my Vampire playfield tonight for the resto, and it was a little warm in my gameroom. That doesn't sound like what they were describing, but that's reality.

#283 2 years ago

Question for Vid (or any other gay guy):

When you go to pinball shows, do you hear "It's Raining Men" playing on an endless loop in your head?

#284 2 years ago
Quoted from jwilson:

I just spit coffee all over my work laptop.

#285 2 years ago
Quoted from navajas:

I saw vid once at a gay bar in Budapest, but is was really smokey. He looked kind of like a cross between Tom Seleck and Shia LaBeouf.

So Shia LaBeouf with a moustache and very short jean shorts?

In related news, I have a friend in Brussels who looks like Higgins.

Looks like the thread topic is true

Talk about taking things out of context. Ya BOOB

Quoted from navajas:

Ha!

no particular point. Just responding to your comment about how people can be, saw you were in Sequim, and it reminded me of that. I lived in Bremerton for 40 years, and have hundreds of trips to play golf at SunLand and Dungeness. The folks always seemed friendly. So this guy certainly was no reflection on the community that he needed to 'save' from me.

Randy, Randy, Randy...the physical attributes of a good portion of attendees at pinball shows may very well be enough to turn a gay man straight. Don't bring the favorites from your iTunes playlist into this thread.

#292 2 years ago

I find it ironic that they are sitting on a WH2O.

I know it's old, but at the last show, Author & Punisher's "Terrorbird" was stuck in my head.

I had not heard it in years, it just got in there and would not leave.

Even as a musician myself, I think that's the strangest fuckin video I've ever seen. And I thought Tool videos were odd...awesome jam to boot. I just cranked this up in my office and disrupted everyone...

beelzeboob , Have you been to a pinball show and see what attends?

The song I hear is "I feel pretty" from West Side Story.

#296 2 years ago

Off topic, what game is that sleazy metro teen playing in post 280? Cant ID it.

#297 2 years ago

Tool's Hush is more appropriate for this thread.

#298 2 years ago

Would you or would you not go into a gay bar if they had an awesome line up of pinball machine?

Looks like a Capt. Fantastic to me.

Edit: Nah.
