THE Pinball Podcast100th Episode Anniversary:
Commemorative Artwork and Grand Hootenanny in Las Vegas

TPP100Color (resized).jpg

Hello Pinsiders!

It is my honor to announce the impending 100th episode from our favorite pinball discussants and tangeteers, Don and Jeff, co-host extraordinaires of THE Pinball Podcast.

This post is gonna be a doozy, but we wouldn’t have it any other way for the second-longest-winded pinball podcast on the interwebs *a-hem*TaylorAndTommy*a-hem* …excuse me. Something in my throat there. Anyhow, here’s what you can expect:

A) Custom Commemorative T-shirt Art
B) Limited-Edition Screen Printed Poster
C) Episode #100 Grand Hootenanny in Las Vegas (!??!)

- -- --- ---------- --- -- -

A. Custom Commemorative T-shirt Art

All joking aside, I’ve been wanting to create some artwork for Don and Jeff for years now, and I’m excited to release this new design I illustrated in celebration of their 100th episode. The guys and NiftyLED are sparing no expense. The design will be screen-printed (with 4 colors) on a bougey ring-spun cotton (very soft) navy T-shirt from American Apparel.

We are opening a month-long window for pre-orders that will close on Dec. 31st, 2016. Shirts will be $20 each for sizes S-XL and $23 for sizes XXL-XXXL (+ $5 shipping in the U.S. and $15 shipping outside the U.S. Multiple shirts in one order will not increase shipping cost.). During the pre-order window we will also be accepting orders for female fitted shirts...

...also $20 for sizes S-XXL. Shirts will be ready by mid-February (see “Episode #100 Grand Hootenanny in Las Vegas” below). To secure your shirt, place your order through NiftyLED here:

B. Limited-Edition Screen-Printed Poster

Unlike the commemorative T-shirts, which WILL BE PRINTED regardless of how many are ordered, these signed, hand-numbered, limited-edition prints MIGHT BE PRINTED...if we receive at least 20 pre-orders by Dec. 31st, 2016.

These posters will be screen-printed (just like a good ole’-fashioned playfield or backglass) in a limited run of 50 on high-quality 100# French paper with a nice standard size of 18”x24” (easy to find a frame for). Posters will be sold for $25 each (+$15 shipping inside the U.S. and +$25 shipping outside the U.S.). For delivery, the print will be nestled inside craft paper wrap (to ensure a safe delivery) and snuggled inside a big, fat, 3” diameter tube (for minimal warping).

We were not originally going to offer these prints, but I begged and pleaded because I love The Pinball Podcast, and I’ll be honest, I’m pretty taken by this design. So, let’s make this a reality by placing a pre-order at NiftyLED here:

In the unfortunate event that we do not receive 20 pre-orders by Dec. 31st, 2016, pre-order money will be refunded in-full and the posters will not be printed. *sad emoji* #firstWorldProblems

C. 100th Episode Grand Hootenanny in Las Vegas

As if all this artsy stuff wasn’t enough, the guys are recording their celebratory 100th episode LIVE in Las Vegas at Flipperspiel Underground on Saturday, Feb. 18th, 2017. Damnit that sounds cool. Excuse me for a moment...

*sets a Travelocity search notification*

Okay, I’m back. So, this is really a thing. You, too, can be a part of this wonderous occasion in the City of PIN, Las Vegas, NV. …and if you act fast, you can probably even find tickets to the same Ween concert that Don will be attending.

Details

Where:
The Flipperspiel Underground
6000 S Eastern Ave. #4D
Las Vegas, NV 89119

When:
Doors open at 1:00 PM, admission to play games is $10.00 - Over 20 Pinball Machines and over 15 Video games, all set to FREEPLAY

Don & Jeff will start recording at 3:00 PM until whenever they finish or pass out.

Grand Hootenany Tournament Registration opens at 6:00 PM, Tournament starts at 7:00 PM $10 entry fee goes to the pot for the winners! This will be an IFPA points event (because Don and Jeff are super-knowledgeable about tournament stuff).

Alright, I think that about does it for the info dump. From Don and Jeff, thanks for the listenership. I know they’re all hopped-up to connect with each of you lucky folks in Vegas. From Daniel at Nifty, he supports your choice to make pinball purple again. From me, thanks for all your support and interest in my work. I can’t believe you’ve made it possible for me to illustrate over a dozen designs and counting for this incredible hobby. You all rock!!!

Vegas or Bust,

Tim Arnold has (or had) a few bingos in his collection. Not sure if any are set up at the PHOF.

Last time I was at PHoF (maybe a year ago?) they had a Miss America (can't recall the year off-hand) and a Bingo-style poker game.

Yes, but thankfully his kids are more cautious.

Congrats on the upcoming landmark episode! It is a good commute listen and I know more about Jeff's health than I do about many of my own family members health. Thinking about the print but $15 shipping is tough.

Hi Matesamo,

Thanks for considering the print. I understand $15 for shipping sounds a bit steep, but I am adamant about it getting it to you unflawed. I've had a fair amount of experience creating/printing/shipping posters and big 3" tubes cost more than 2" tubes. They also cost more to ship. Craft paper to secure it inside the tube costs more than having it jangle around inside and arrive with dented edges. Plus, I'll be personally autographing and individually numbering all 50 posters (should we receive the required amount of pre-orders). On top of that, these big 18"x24" prints are immaculately screen-printed (ask Don, he's got a few of my prints) in four colors. The printer I used prints many nationally recognized gig posters and knows precisely what they're doing. I see posters of this quality selling for twice this much without shipping. So, honestly, we're doing our absolute best to make this a reality without taking a total bath in the process.

I hope this explanation clarifies why we're offering the posters at this cost, and that our margins are actually razor thin at these quantities. If all this doesn't convince you, I'm happy to field suggestions (either publicly or privately, whichever you're more comfortable doing) about anything else we could do to make this deal more attractive to you.

Hope this finds you well and thanks for suffering through...I mean...TUNING-IN to 95 episodes thus far.

See you in Vegas?
