Hey, everyone! I've ventured into the live streaming realm. I was inspired by watching Dead Flip's videos. One in particular where Jack showed that it doesn't take much to start streaming pinball, got my attention. We have a small non-profit arcade in New Mexico (Arcade Dungeon) dedicated to the acquisition, maintenance, and restoration of classic arcade and pinball machines. It has been shut down since March because of Covid and it doesn't look like we'll be able to open anytime soon, so streaming looked like it could be a fun way to show that we are still there in the community.
I'm not trying to be famous and I'm not at all great player, but I have the tech skills and the machines on hand. I'm much better at repairing machines than playing. I've only really been into pinball for about two years. I want to be a better player and I thought why not let the world watch me get better. (or worse, I suppose) Honestly, this year has sucked the joy out of me and I needed something to lift me up.
Tonight was my first stream. After a few technical difficulties, I had great night playing Lights...Camera...Action! (I thought it was a very appropriate title for my first broadcast.) We have ten pinball machines in our arcade from EM's to Modern Sterns and I will stream my way through all of them soon. (All linked above to this topic.)
Anyway, if you are at all interested, here is a link to my first ever stream. I am normally a very quiet person and I worked hard at my play by play. That too, is a skill I'd like to hone. Enjoy!
