    Quoted from SDTMinSTL:

    [quoted image]
    In Episode 36 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt & Jason discuss the greed in the air surrounding Dutch Pinball, details about the upcoming streaming schedule and we play the popular Name That Pin!
    It's Jason's turn to discpher 1 second long clips of pin sounds and guess the machine. It is agonizing with some trademark complaining, according to Matt. We also dive into our thoughts on flippant flippers trying to make the worst of a bad situation regarding Dutch Pinball and The Big Lebowski. Thanks for joining us!
    FYI: We plan to start the official Slap Save Pinball Stream starting Thursday August 15th at 7:30 PM Central Time. Add us on Twitch to get live updates ( slapsavepinballpodcast ). More details to follow. Swing by, hang with us, have a beer, and lets talk, and play, some pinball.

    Quoted from Jimmyhonda:

    Shoot! That’s golf league night! Lol. I guess i’ll watch live in the fall! Can’t wait. Keep up the great work gentlemen.

    No sweat buddy. We will stream over a weekend sometime so you can join us. I'll keep you updated.

    #354 1 year ago

    Are you guys going to be streaming exclusively from your home base, or are you looking for other locations in the STL area to take the stream on the road?

    #355 1 year ago

    I hate two things . . .

    #357 12 months ago

    Twitch only shows me 30 seconds of video?

    #358 12 months ago

    great job on the stream guys!

    Quoted from ChrisPINk25:

    great job on the stream guys!

    Eager to check it out, but I couldn't find anything more than about 30 seconds of video, just the very begining... Where do we find the rest?

    Are you guys going to be streaming exclusively from your home base, or are you looking for other locations in the STL area to take the stream on the road?

    Unfortunately, at least starting out, we are going to be sticking to to Fort Fowler. The stream setup we are using isn't very mobile. We made the decision to really focus on making sure the video feed is as HQ as possible, so the mobility suffers some.

    We hope, as we grow, that we can get a separate setup that will allow us to also be able to do location streams. Thanks for the interest though!

    Hiya Razor. Thanks for asking. We are still so new to Twitch that we have not yet earned Affiliate status that allows you to upload videos (VOD) to our channel, (but we will). For some reason, twitch did not auto capture the last one. As a fail safe (thankfully), I recorded it separately. You will be able to view it on our Youtube page ASAP. I will post the link here sometime tomorrow when it is done. (Saturday, August 18th, 2019)

    In case you missed it, our VOD of the last stream is here. We had some technical issues, and the vod is missing a bit, but you can get an idea of the direction we are going and how our stream will be run.

    Devill With A Cause (Medium) (resized).jpg
    In episode 37 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt and Jason announce their plans to work with Project Pinball to place a pinball machine in a St. Louis Children's Hospital named "Cardinal Glennon" that Jason reveres for it's important role in his past. See the summary below for the details. We also discuss the trials and tribulations of our first stream last week, talk float trips, family trees that model flag poles AND we have a 2016 edition of Flip, Bolt or Torch! We plan to stream Gorgar this week to promote our campaign described below. More details will follow as they become available.

    The summary of our plans:

    Jason and Matt will be donating all funds from a sale of a very special collector quality/near collector quality Gorgar and many extras to Project Pinball to help fund them placing a machine in a local children's hospital. It will be listed on Pinside and Facebook Marketplace in the next couple of days.

    It has a clear coated playfield, beautiful backglass, new flipper mechs and a nearly perfect cabinet. I plan to list it for sale and donate 100% of the proceeds to Project Pinball for the purpose of funding the placement of a new machine in the hospital. I plan on asking 2500K OBO in the hopes that someone is generous enough to offer that, or more, to know that they helped make this happen. We will be asking $2,500 for the Gorgar or better offer. In addition to the great machine you will take home, we plan to:

    -Provide a premium framed certificate commemorating the sale of the machine and describing the funding and thanking the purchaser.
    -A public display of the receipt showing the ENTIRE amount and 100% raised for the machine was given DIRECTLY to Project Pinball. (A pure donation, not raffle purchases)
    -A HUGE swag pack of everything I can get my hands on. Right now Stern and Multimorphic are providing Translites, and misc. other Swag that will ALL be included with the machine to help in interest and encourage a generous donation in its sale price. I am working on more. The machine will list very soon!
    -An offer, if the end purchaser desires, to be interviewed by Matt and I on our podcast and thank them personally.
    -Thank yous, repeatedly, to all vendors, manufacturers, media and collectors that either offer something to bundle with the machine, make a donation towards our goal or promote it through mentions or articles.
    -If the buyer wishes to pick up the machine in person, I will put them up in a local hotel, and offer my game room for their use the entire time they are in St. Louis in addition to joining us in person, on a special stream (our stream should be launching this week). In addition, join Matt and I for dinner and drinks. We will pick up the tab.
    -More that has yet to be determined I hope. It will be a helluva deal for $2,500 bucks. I hope so much so, that people quickly make that price laughable.

    NOTE: There has been some confusion about the machine being placed in the hospital. Gorgar is NOT being placed in a children's hospital. Gorgar is being SOLD to give the funds to project pinball so they can choose the machine that is appropriate for Cardinal Glennon.

    If you would like to help us help some very deserving children take their minds off some of the battles they face, but do not wish to be in the running for Gorgar, please consider a donation, large or small, to Project Pinball. In the memo or notes for you donation, please mention the Slap Save Pinball Podcast campaign or "Cardinal Glennon" so the funds go to this particular machine.
    Need a new pinball machine, or perhaps an Escalera? Make sure you give Zach Meny a call at Flip N' Out pinball, the Premiere Sponsor of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast. The guy is absolutely wrecking it when it comes to service, selection and a willingness to go the extra mile. Contact Zach at 847.778.4876 or via email at zach@flipnoutpinball.com

    Regarding Devil with a Cause that you can read about in detail above....

    Just an update for those interested. Max bid is now at 3k from iceman44

    More has been added to the pot. We now have a professional Photo print that was provided from Mohr photography (Mike and his sister, good friends of the show). That photo is below.

    Stern swag is in transit I have been told. Multimorphic swag is in hand. LED Litframe is in hand...and it is gorgeous. SO much so that I bought TWO for myself! lol Signed Bettlejuice trans is being drop shipped to the buyer direct from Mr. Franchi.

    Spooky donated, countless others have donated, we will be sending all proceeds from our podcast/stream that we have gotten (bits mostly, but some private donations). Thanks to everyone! It has been hard to keep my eyes dry due to the outpouring of support for this cause. Sincerely.

    PLEASE NOTE> The auction style format will conclude with the highest bidder being awarded EVERYTHING above and the machine at 12 midnight Tuesday evening. I am only human. Please place any bids you wish to make early enough so that it is accounted for. I want to be as fair as possible to everyone interested.

    Thanks so much,

    #377 11 months ago

    I understand it is hard to know what is going on with the auction. Challenges of communicating the current bid is not something I anticipated. I will say this, I am getting offers from all across the country and it has me as emotional as I have ever been. A lot of them are simply because people don't know what the high bid is. I am going to address that here till 12 midnight tonight and on our facebook page on here: https://www.facebook.com/slapsavepinball/photos/a.1759399617493803/2141940539239707/?type=3&theater

    It is also the top post of our page for your convenience.

    CURRENT High Bid as of 2:07 PM cst is @iceman44 with $3,500! Thank you so much Ice! More are coming in. Make sure you stay tuned here for any developments.

    SIT DOWN FOR THIS ONE!!!!! We have had an offer by a fellow collector, who wishes to remain anonymous, to MATCH the current bid level and possibly MORE as new bids come in AS A DONATION ONLY!!!!!! This is IN ADDITION to the money we are selling the machine for! I just tried to do a cartwheel and busted my #%$ !!!!!!!!. I actually shed some tears, I won't lie.

    #379 11 months ago

    Ladies and Gentleman, we have a new bid leader for Gorgar and all the accompanying items that will benefit Project Pinball and Cardinal Glennon Childrens Hospital (all amounts in excess of the cost of the machine will simply fund ANOTHER machine for ANOTHER hospital!). PINMANIAC out of Jacksonville has upped the winning bid to $4,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much!
