Quoted from punkin:

No idea how i got it after it was lit

-Finish at least one mode. Note that a harder mode means bigger jackpot once you're Into the Fire.
-Collect all the dwarves.
-Start all the multi-balls (you don't have to finish them)
-Reach Erebor (use the orbit spinners, it advances to Erebor)
-Shoot one of the holes when they blink like fire.

My game room has turned more into a museum than a functional social space.

#1553 8 months ago

I won a NIB from the other pinball charity raffle.

#1554 8 months ago

The trend of late to 'ebay up' topic lines with special character garbage is so grating I've drained several topics just because of it.

For Irony: (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

#1555 8 months ago

I like to listen to Huey Lewis and the News from time to time.

#1556 8 months ago

you know what grinds my gears..People who mention new leg levelers as a selling feature when selling a pin

#1557 8 months ago

I believe sunglasses should be illegal to wear in Texas hold ‘em tournaments. Same with hoods and covering the face. But especially sunglasses.

In '87, Huey released this; Fore!, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip To Be Square". A song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity and the importance of trends. It's also a personal statement about the band itself.

Hey, Paul!

...new machine comes out that is not their pet theme. "Who cares about XX machine. It's dumb and I hate it".

(Rinse. Repeat until we get a stupid Jaws machine that nobody wants or cares about except for 6 people who won't buy it because the cabinet isn't blue enough.)

I kinda wish that Lynn Gilmartin was on the WPT pin..she’s very easy to look at, and w that accent...ooooeeeee...

I sold off my entire collection over the last month. I don't know if I'm sad or relived.

If you came out even or ahead, congrats. You can always get back in later. There are a lot of different ways to enjoy pinball, owning games is just one.

#1568 8 months ago

I did come out slightly ahead. We will be renting a 1 bdm apt for a year in Orlando while we look to buy. After we buy I will start to rebuild a new collection. Good news is there's a couple locations not far from where I'm renting. Should keep the addiction in check for a year........or I'll have a pissed off wife and a pin in my living room

#1569 8 months ago

I never want to shop out an F-14 again

#1570 8 months ago

I enjoy reading the Ghostbusters “Where’s the code thread” after each Stern of the Union posting. It makes people feel better when they can vent to the entire world!

#1571 8 months ago

I love all the new Sterns but after Pinburgh, what I want most is an EM with a spinner. It’s like having an Atari vector collection without Asteroids...life is incomplete!

#1572 8 months ago

I confess the search for a decent Sorcerer is getting me down so much i just considered contacting HEP.

I can relate! When I came back from my first ReplayFX all I wanted was a game with a manual ball lift. I found that so charming.

I have never used/hit the snooze button on my alarm clock; isn’t it the idea to wake up at a certain time?

#1575 7 months ago

My daily alarm is set for 3:30am, midnight madness is way past my bedtime. Should I just wake up early?

#1576 7 months ago

I got an Avatar LE to play for a while and move on and a Metallica LE to keep in my collection, both on the same day and I love the Avatar more and might move Metallica on.

Just set the clock to a time that is more suitable to your pinball playing.

#1578 7 months ago

I dislike many of the pins in top 50 and wont play them even if set to free-play.

#1579 7 months ago

Mike Boon is most underrated programmer ever

Got a fix in downtown Montreal, on saint Catherine's street.

#1582 7 months ago

I've long since gotten over the fact that 99.9% of the pins on the "Project pins here, C/L, ebay, etc" will not be near me, but hope springs eternal! So when I see there are 35 new entries since I last visited I'm like "hell yah!" And then I see its just a bunch of pinheads having a discussion about this or that and I'm like "CRAP!" And then I join the discussion. Probably pissing off someone else who sees a bunch of new entries...

Quoted from poppapin:

I once got a pinball machine for free!

So your the guy who stole my Flying Carpet EM from my garage.

#1585 7 months ago

I only own one pinball machine,and I hate the theme so much,that I play it blindfolded with the volume off.

#1586 7 months ago

I openly complain about dirty playfields all the time, but you wouldn’t believe what the inside of my shop microwave looks like right now.

Amazing that no matter what happens on Saint Catherine's, amusement 2000 doesn't close. Hope you went to Kojax for lunch.

This is the confessional... were you even alive in '87?

#1591 7 months ago

I scan the “fresh ads” on the Pinside market every day, in this order:

- check locations, ignore pins
- check pins, ignore location

When I’m finished with this daily ritual I’m always relieved not to see anything I “need”.

#1592 7 months ago

If a pinball video/stream has any sound effects play when someone subscribes I immediately close the video.

Nahh, my parents were almost 30 in 1987 though haha. What about you?

#1595 7 months ago

I scour Pinside, Bash, Village and MrPinball and occasionally buy a pin because of a low price. Sometimes I don’t even want it.

I get upset when they advertise Pachinko machines as Pinball.

#1597 7 months ago
Quoted from trk12fire:

I get annoyed by listings that say "Free" but aren't really free. More like, make me an offer and let's get this auction started.

#1598 7 months ago

I'm looking to buy a Metallica Premium LE. I haven't told my daughter yet, that I'm going to store it at her house,until I sell my house,and find a new house. I already missed out on a nice Metallica Pro led,and I'm not gonna let that happen again,if I find a Metallica Premium LE.
