I loved that dude! I just Googled and he is alive and well after some prior heart attacks.
Quote: He now resides in the town of Marion, Ohio.
I never seen him live, just on cable, but a friend used to go to all his shows in Atlanta, and he said that when you entered, they told you, go to the restroom before the show starts, if you get up during his show he loses his train of thought, and he will just walk off stage for a while.
Thanks for bringing that up LTG!
Somewhere around that time they performed at the Six Flags 5 miles away from me. I was around 10.
I have always loved their music, and Six Flags that time is all I can remember, I was very young, not tall enough to see them on stage, and right in front of me the whole time was this bad ass dude, looked like the Rock or something, had to have weighed 280 pounds, and every ounce of that was muscle, and he stood there the whole time, never moved, while this cute chick that probably weighed 95 pounds soaking wet was hanging all over him dancing.
Likewise big time!
Jay is laid back, cool, and just seems like your brother from another mother.
I confess, I did not want my girlfriend to know I had company, she would freak out me having anyone around, after she was close to death, and she had tried to stay so careful.
So for Jay to keep playing pins, I was going to call her from outside, so that she could not hear pins being played.
Before I went outside, Jay already knew where the Nattys were, and I showed him where everything else was, and told him to make himself at home.
Jay travels a lot and tries to meet all the Pinsiders he can, if he knocks on your door, let him in, he is cool!
As far as my girlfriend, 5 days in the hospital, I was afraid I would lose her, it did not look good for a while, and after another week staying isolated at her house, and feeling better now, just 2 days ago she got a test, and it was negative.
SO NOW, here we go again: "are you going to play Big Buck Hunter with me or not"?
It is a very awesome game, and I enjoy it, but damn she is hooked on that game so bad, and I can not play it for hours like she does.
It is so funny how all that Big Buck stuff started. I found the thread on here, got interested in it, started researching, told her I was thinking about getting one, and she said "oh no, no way I could shoot cute animals".
I told her you can also shoot Zombies on this game, and she said ok, sounds like fun.
Yeah, after a few hours of killing Zombies and we tried the first animal hunt, she is ready to even shoot a poor bunny rabbit that happens to wander along during the game.
My girlfriend used to be so nice and warm, now she is a female Rambo, ready to kill anything, and is now programed to kill, and that is all she knows now.
I still want to play some more Zombie and Terminator, and they do wear you out, but now she is after wabbit, like Elmer Fudd.
And while I may come off as complaining, NO! I am happy she is having so much fun and loves this game.
I love it also, I love all the games we have, but I am just done after a while, and she keeps going and going.
Trust me, if you have a location that brings in a lot of females, get a Big Buck Hunter for it. (not sure if they are all the same, but I do know my girlfriend would be dropping a lot of money in one if I did not have this game).
Oh, and when Jay was over, I told him I do not care if you beat my scores, but do not even play the Sky Slide tent on Oktoberfest, because that is all she has on there, and she will get pissed if her name goes away.
(and reminds me)
And man, that was one thing about it, this was hard. First time I have ever dealt with this.
Back when I thought she was not going to make it, I made up my mind that I would never beat any of her high scores, I wanted her name to live on in my games.
If she was just someone that I wanted to get away from, like I did in the past with other girlfriends that I no longer want to see them, and if they had their names on any of my games I would be motivated to try to set the games back to factory, or keep playing until their name was off my game.
But no, I had made up my mind that if I lost her, her scores would always be there.
Sad to think about.
And sucks that a while back I beat my best friends score on TWD, and after he passed I would love it if he still was on there, but it was all sudden, who could have known.
And I am curious about the Who-Dey games. Does the new owners plan to never beat his high score to keep a part of him alive?
Right before my girl got sick she made high score on big horn sheep on BBH.
While she was in the hospital, and could barely talk, she kept telling me to go play the game and beat her score.
I think that talk was just because she pitched so much of a fit back when I beat all her scores on the AC/DC pin and she was very ticked for a while, and she has brought that up a lot.
Recently she said again, "you only left my high score for that one crappy song that you never play anyway".
Man I confess she is AWESOME!
I confess I am a dick.
BUT not normally, normally like Jay said, I am ok.
What happens is I am self employed, with a lot going on, and at the exact same time I have a problem come up is the exact same time she asks me a question that I ignore, because I am still working out other things in my mind.
When Jay stopped by it was perfect timing and all was awesome and we had a great time.
For whatever reason, my girl is always awesome but timing is off and I can not be so awesome.
I have no clue how to fix the issue of timing, not sure a fix exists.
My girl means the world to me, but I catch myself being cold after she brings it up, and I have no clue why I do that.
My mind is just always all over the place, and I make notes about what I need to take care of.
And I confess I am sorry for another long post.
And I hope soon I can be funny again.
I am so glad my girl survived, but all of that I have not gotten over yet, all those thoughts and stuff.
Part of me is just still dead. The part that used to be witty and funny... in my own mind anyway.
(did they change the Natty from making us feel awesome to making us still feel sad)?
