Quoted from Beatnik-Filmstar:

Boring truth - it's just a band name. I like them and always thought it was a cool turn of phrase. Have used variations of it for logins all over the internet for years. (Then they got back together for a bit and I felt a little weird.)

Ha! I get it. I’m Krupps. I have been since the mid to late 1990s. I needed a user name for something and there was a Krupps brand coffee machine in front of me. The rest is history. 20+ years I’ve been Krupps.

Looking for a family guy, if anyone has one reasonably priced. Pm me. Thank you.

Quoted from LesManley:

Such a good game, good luck with the search, they don't come up locally that often.

Thanks. My kids and I have been enjoying it on Visual Pinmame in the meantime, but not quite the same as the real thing!

I know that guy too. Real jerk, tough to deal with. No way he's selling!

Quoted from Beatnik-Filmstar:

Seriously though, I can't sell it. Only way I would is to get another nicer one potentially I guess. I've had it 10 years now and I still love it. Longest tenured game in my collection by far.

#14108 49 days ago

Anyone ISO a lightly routed(likely fewer plays than many Home games), well maintained, and clean MUNSTERS pro?

Thinking this may go up for sale soon. likely 4500obo (seems to be market based on high level search)

Stress free transaction to a local... and willing to help you out a little more.

Pics and advert will go up when time allows. Safe to say, the game is nice and no issues (as are all of our games)

#14109 49 days ago

Listed my Star Trek Premium Vault.
Im on the lake alot now and just not playing as much as I used to.
Had it sold before but Covid hit and buyer was a few states away.

Hi all,
I am likely heading up that way next month to visit family. I have been looking to pick up a classic Stern game for a bit. Stars is at the top of my list, but would love a nine ball or cheetah as well (maybe big game or others). If anyone is looking to make a deal or may have a lead, it would be much appreciated! Thank you

Can see the smoke from downtown Mpls from here. And i'm 20 mins south in Burnsville. Heard it's pretty bad down there. Were not doing any deliveries to Mpls or St Paul today

#14113 48 days ago

My wife and I stayed in the Twin Cities for a weekend getaway, at the end of February, right before lockdowns occurred. We really enjoyed our time there. Just so sad to see this happening right now. It's a beautiful place. My wife has family that live nearby in Woodbury and Bayport, and we would visit there a few times a year. Just so sad.

#14114 48 days ago

That reminds me, I am jonesing for some pastries from Bread Art in Bayport.

I've never heard of this place.... It's now on the list to try, the pictures on the webpage look amazing.

#14116 47 days ago

Good bread. Donuts and cookies are so-so. Fancy desserts taste fancy.

But those pastries man....yum

I live right in that area. Both Targets are closed and boarded up. Same with several clothing stores. Strip mall by my ma's house where no activity took place yesterday, also has entire strip mall boarded up.

I'm listening to the local police scanner and still activity going on Grand Ave, Payne Phalen area and the usual areas from yesterday. Good news is the calls are coming in slower and they are able to make arrests this time.

I drove past some of my past pinball locations I had games at years ago. I was pleased to see their businesses were still standing and seem to be doing "alright". Was nice to see some old faces too.

#14118 47 days ago

Speaking of checking up on businesses, I haven't heard anything about UpDown or Tilt. I assume they're doing fine so far?

There is no law in Minneapolis tonight. Anything is possible right now.

#14121 47 days ago
Quoted from pinballplusMN:

It seems the mayor of mpls and the gov. Are nowhere to be found.I hope the resign.. HEARTBREAKING in Mpls.!!!

What do you expect them to do? Pretty easy to sit back and judge from Woodbury. Come on over to where I live and see what people that are struggling think about what people in the suburbs have to say.

Olympic Cafe on Broadway N Mpls on fire, fire fighters on the scene. Wells Fargo Bank building, Hibachi Buffet, and post office on Lake street near freeway on fire. Fire crews won't go in until the area is secure.

#14123 47 days ago

Lots of chopper action here, five blocks from Up-Down.
No idea if rioting/looting has come this far west.
My neighbors just texted to say they're spooked.
It's getting wild...

Things are tense here, I totally understand your frustration. Please do not think I have any hostility towards you. We are Minnesotans, we are stronger together. We will learn from this and come out better. It is going to take a lot to get to that point, but we will do it.

#14129 47 days ago

I'm listening to Ramsey county dispatch and it sounds like they are able to get ontop of the thievery in the Snelling University area.

#14130 47 days ago

Park Nicolette and Midway Med clinics have been smashed and gutted. They took everything even what was bolted down.

Indefinitely closed now.

Always good to destroy clinics during a pandemic.

#14131 47 days ago
Quoted from Oaken:

Yeah never understood the genius behind destroying your own assets. A month from now they'll be crying about not having the clinic or grocery stores and blame it on someone else's beliefs instead of their own actions. Same thing happened few years back in Cincy where most of the businesses (90%) chose not to reopen and then were made the villains because of it

I'm with all those that are outraged by whats happened to this man but I am equally as opposed to those who (lets be honest here) use this tragic event to loot and destroy as their sole intentions.

Well they tried peaceful kneeling, and if I recall you weren’t a huge fan of that either.

So not sure how exactly you want these people to protest? This kind of thing seems to be the only thing that gets anyone’s attention or forces change. I wonder if that guy would have gotten arrested if protesters humming “we shall overcome” in a field somewhere.

Don't troll me Levi, you've not heard me ever say anything about protest that were peaceful.

So you think looting and destroying property of innocent people is an acceptable way to affect change? As I said earlier I fully support those that want change and want to protest, the event was tragic to say the least but I do not support those who's sole purpose is the advancement of anarchy at others expense.

I think that you said “I don’t understand why they are doing this” and I tried to point out that if you think about it, it’s not so hard to understand.

It’s 30 years after Rodney king and nothing has changed. If you actually try to “understand” it’s not really that tough to see why people are pissed off.

“Acceptable” doesn’t really have anything to do with it. Once you see a cop sit on a guys neck for 9 minutes, “acceptable/unacceptable” And “right or wrong” kind of goes out the window.

#14138 47 days ago

I really feel for you guys LTG and sadly it has popped up all over the country. George Floyd demands justice and as Americans we should all share that same sentiment, but what is occurring should not be tolerated.

Right so your of the camp that when your neighbor pisses you off you kill his dog...…….yeah that'll teach him.

Lets just agree to disagree and leave it at that.

#14140 47 days ago

I am unsure what is true and what is driven by various political narratives, but I am hearing from multiple places that those arrested last night were overwhelmingly not local and possibly not even here for the protest.

My understanding is also that the curfews imposed over the weekend are because they are expecting thousands to come in from out of state, not to protest but primarily to take part in the wildfire.

Makes me cry man... people that want (and need) to peacefully protest and be heard can’t even safely do so because of the chaos that extremists on both sides are creating so they can sow their hate. What a f#$&@ mess.

It's not even like you're killing the neighbors dog it's like you're killing the old lady's dog across the street that has nothing to do with your issue. I can't wrap my head around how burning and pillaging minority-owned businesses in that neighborhood can gain sympathy for their cause.

This is not a political thing, racism knows no party line. What should be of note, how quickly a portion of our society gather like cock roaches or vultures for the chance to prosper off others tragedies; it is a direct and telling testament to who we are as a nation.

#14147 47 days ago

Hey guys we could move our discussion of this over to the pinside bitch thread and that way not clog up the for sale thread. Well or someone start a thread which would be better.

He probably wouldn't have been arrested if he wasn't suspected of passing counterfeit US Currency.
