    The winds of shit are blowing.....

    Quoted from iceman44:

    Seems like YOU can’t move on. Never could. You will be here until the bitter end with your own personal issues that nobody gives a F about.

    This is coming from the same guy who claims that he has pulled the plug, couldn't care less, got railroaded and yet you cannot move on?

    Me and my personal issues are here because I just love a good cliffhanger mystery story where you just happen to be a major character.

    I wanna see how it all plays out.

    How many hockey pucks have you taken to the head?

    You are a pitiful character in this “cliffhanger”

    Quoted from iceman44:

    How many hockey pucks have you taken to the head?

    Over the years? 13 stiches to the chin from a slapshot that sent my mask flying, dislocated my jaw and knocked me out cold( any of you older hockey fans, it was Jerry 'King Kong' Korab's nephew, Joe Korab that did it). 8 stiches over the right eye. Right kneecap dislocated from a slapshot and knocked out cold with a goalie cup cracked in half from the hardest slapshot I ever faced right to the family jewels.

    Those are the ones I can recollect at this time.

    Why is this even still a topic as GWJ admitted it was a troll from the start then took money so in my book, that turned it into a scam! He should be banned here and from any pinball shows! No one cares anymore; in before the lock!

    #57 1 year ago
    Quoted from DBLM:

    Why is this categorized as boutique pinball vs homebrew?

    Actually interesting question.. usually homebrews are built by one person or a small team for themselves. If you build a homebrew for someone else does it become botique? Do you have to sell it to be boutique? Have a company? Some limited # built? Hmmm..

    Either way I’d say this one should be homebrew

    Quoted from AviRoo:

    Before i joined pinside weren't you all calling me John's wife among other things?

    In all fairness, Avi, that was me. And it was nothing but me making a smart ass comment when I saw your first blurry pic with the long hair.

    My apologies. You seem like a good guy. John, on the other hand, comes across like a cluster fuck.

    Sorry, John, but someone had to say it.

    Just got back from Moncton, NB. Where I battled it out with 4 of us from Nova Scotia, going against the host New Brunswick guys, & gals. David Dennis was a no show, was hoping to play him.

    Needless to say I was doing some heavy drinking at Motel 6 & other local bars for 3 days. Glad to be home, & got to go out to look at a hot tub that is tripping the breaker. Bring back my skills from 25-35 years back. As for the wiring from Avi, best to remove everything he touched to keep some people happy.

    Did they leave the light on for you?

    #66 1 year ago

    So we're doing this again.

    I thought it was Texas-themed.

    So the actual troll was pretending like the purported troll was a troll?

    #67 1 year ago

    I thought there wouldn’t be any discussion of your drinking?? So much for that.

    #68 1 year ago

    The thing about it is, that theres things that GWJ was obviously doing to get a rise out of people/ troll. The unfortunate truth of it though was most of those "troll" things were based on the sad reality of the situation. Anything for the attention.

    The whole build, taking a potentially fun and flowy layout and turning it into a bafflingly bad layout, and making horrible rookie mistakes along the way was 100% not a troll despite John's last ditch hail mary to try and spin it that way

    It was a general statement about of course drinking while away. I will not go on about my daily consumption of beer along with my wife suitcase of Bud beer. They are giving away a coupon for a bottle of Frank's Red Hot so I will have lots of them.
    Avi had problems with cooking coils on the On Beam em pinball at home. He sold it at cost today, & lost many hours on it getting it going. Must have a curse since the other local tech & owner gave up on it. I only lost some new rubbers & some time helping out. He is selling his other em off as is. Looks like I am now the sole em service tech left for a huge area.
    Trailer Trash is getting the switch wiring started by the intern. See what progress gets done this week.

    Ah, so no talk about your drinking in this thread except for general statements about your drinking. Got it.

    Here’s my advice. Don’t talk about your drinking AT ALL. Those who want to follow your build (or whatever this is) don’t care to hear about your drinking and those who egg you on about it are just here to watch a train wreck.

    Good thing I only have one coach. Wiring continues on around the drop target bank & fixed targets. I usually consume 2 beers a hour, so my first hour seems to be the stupid suggestion in Canada for the entire week now for a person. Good thing most of us ignore them, or the barcades will be going out of business.

    Great job of not talking about quantity of beer consumed. Then again, what promises have been met? I know there is a saying "Any publicity is good publicity". However, we have certainly surpassed the limit to that saying.

    No ones cares about this anymore and while it was never the best, his reputation is now zero or less! This was full blown fraud by taking money with no intent on delivery as was publicly stated and bragged about in that last locked thread by the man himself! So if this is now an attempt to save face due to not having the ability to produce a completed game for showing at the 2023 TPF then he better come clean on exactly which it is.

    John, please refer to post #31 in this thread and try and put your best spin on what you wrote.

    #80 1 year ago

    John admitted this was all a ruse. Can this thread be locked? It's just another publicity stunt. Pinside is better than that.

    #81 1 year ago

    I thought he came back again and said it wasn't really just a troll job and that he was still working on the build.

    The main post that he supposedly admitted the whole thing was a troll seemed suspect.
    As someone pointed out that whole post was written in a style that was nothing like GWJs writing style thus far.
    I think there's some more to this than meets the eye! But no one really cares so there's that...

    #82 1 year ago

    He’s never denied writing all the troll posts so as far as I’m concerned we have a guy who took money from a well meaning Pinsider with no intent on actually producing a machine and then wasted the time of countless other Pinsiders on his worthless build threads that were never going to go anywhere.

    Now he’s back for round 2? I’m surprised this thread isn’t locked already. Pinside would be better if it were.

    #83 1 year ago

    No need to lock this, ya'll need to calm down. Its just a guy documenting his build and life, nobody is out any money, not even Iceman this time.

    Guys I am not some scammer, & I will not try to explain why nothing seemed to get done for 6 months. That you guys still cannot figure it was a big joke on all the people that continue to trash on people. Got to say how everything was hand drilled on the whitewood with the huge forster bit, & all the hack whitewood. The whitewood oversized is still getting ready for play testing. The realistic time line is over a year, March 2024 for Texas.
    Still might end up being a one of a kind demo Trailer Park Boys pinball machine, Trailer Trash, or Texas Theme by the coach. I will continue to post updates towards the build. Using Jpop donated ground braid with the build. The intern is cleaning the operators South Park pin in for service before he leaves today. Then back to wiring this week on the whitewood.
    If you are not interested you are free to leave the shit show. The build continues forward with my own thread which hopefully stays not locked. There is no restriction or secrecy going on towards the build.

    John, just make it Trailer Park Boys like you originally wanted to. You're not breaking any laws or copyright infringement making a game for yourself. If by some miracle you're shopping it around and somebody decides they want to produce it, you can worry about reskinning it at that point or maybe somebody more competent can attempt to secure the rights. In the mean time, screw it....you wanted TPB, make it TPB!

    I am still working on Trailer Park Boys if they show any interest in allowing a single demo prototype game for SXSW & TPF in March 2024. If not the original Trailer Trash will be done, & the coach could decide to go forward with his Texas theme which is still mostly a secret to me. Doug is not being asked for anymore funds since last year. If he is happy later this year than things might get more polished.
    The boys have their own potato chips out this year: https://www.reddit.com/r/trailerparkboys/comments/sg5muh/tpb_potato_chips/

    Contrary to what some people believe here. Most of the locals & myself like my modified version of Jon Norris 3 Spinners layout. When it is playable, anyone local will be allowed to play test it here. Maybe even The Trailer Park Boys!

    "Take my word for it" is a strange approach for someone who claims to have spent the last six months lying.

    Yeah here we go again.

    Alright John, time to cut the crap. You said in your troll post that this was all planned from the start by you and Ice to troll Pinside. Ice denies this and says he gave you money in good faith and had no idea you weren’t actually planning to build a machine.

    So, one of you is lying. Either you took Ice’s $5000 in full knowledge that you weren’t going to do anything except drink beer and troll Pinside (in which case you are absolutely a scammer), OR Ice is lying to avoid the consequences of the trolling scheme between you two.

    So which is it?

    My point exactly, this was a scam & fraud unless GWJ wants to fess up to what really happened. So until then, I wouldn’t let him into Texas or even into the US!!!

    Please answer before this post gets closed. I guess Ice, or John could answer.

    #93 1 year ago

    Much like the napkin plan to capture a mini-whale, and the napkin plan to build this machine, I'm pretty sure John's Troll posting excuse is just another napkin plan in the works.

    Quoted from greatwichjohn:

    I am still working on Trailer Park Boys if they show any interest

    John, this comment of yours concerns me. TPB management already rejected you and in very strict terms. Your napkins are about to burst into flames, my friend.

    Quoted from Haymaker:

    This is the 4th thread and he already broke his promise twice in this one alone (not commenting on his drinking). It's time to put an end to this fiasco. Nothing good can come from it.

    Please explain why I would send $$$ to John simply to troll Pinside? I’m not that crazy.

    I don’t believe John ever said that and if he did he’s lying.

    Wanted to give the guy a chance to do a home brew build off of a Norris design and do some good for charity in the end.

    Just that simple. I wasn’t even around for most of the thread once it got started.

    Believe what you want though. A multitude of people wanted to help John at the outset via Gofundme.

    Even recently around the holidays when I came back into the thread and wondered who Avi was, people were falling all over themselves to try and help the “Avi build” of the original Norris design.

    As for the continuation of “the build” John has gotten what he needs to get it from A to B if he can.

    You guys want to follow it because your fascinated by it apparently, then knock yourselves out.

    #96 1 year ago

    Trolling was John's ill-conceived idea imo, and he really should step up and own it.

    Ice, if you look at his infamous "trolling" post, he specifically says no one was "scammed out of money". That statement comes right after he said everything was planned to be a troll since Pintastic.

    So, if he took $5000 of your dollars to fund his beer drinking with the plan to "troll" everyone since Pintastic yet didn't "scam anyone out of money" does that not imply that you knew about the troll and were funding it? I personally don't believe that to be the case, I believe that you did fund the project for whatever reasons you had but fully expected him to take the project seriously and give you a pin at the end.

    I just think John is talking out of both sides of his mouth (AGAIN) and I'm kinda tired of it.

    John, I am very sorry, but you cannot have things both ways. Either coach is in or coach is out? Which is it?

    Then you really should fully explain fully this joke that you claim no one gets, or should just come clean and admit there is no joke, and you really just want to finish this whitewood that was funded by the coach.

    100% expected him to deliver a pin.

    I never held him to TPF 2023. That’s what he said he could accomplish. Not just one game but up to 10.

    Jan 1 was always going to be sort of a status update and plan going forward.

    I had just sent him the last $1k heading into the holidays, came back off a trip and was surprised by the whole Avi thing.

    I believe that whole thing was in response to seeing if there was interest in doing the original Norris design and using some of the spite against me to drum up support and $$

    All it did was stick a fork in it and here we are now

    As far as whether I’m “in or out” I’m only “in” for what I have already contributed $$$ wise to now what he’s calling his “Trailer Park” build

    Get something done at some point in the future and whatever it is, just a pile of parts, white wood, or a flipping game charity gets it.
