Doesn't matter what we think. They already have a plan for the next 2.

I think a pin without Jar Jar would be possible.

Heresy!

Quoted from spfxted:

at machine startup.....
Be seated.
Men, all this stuff you hear about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of bullshit. Americans love to fight. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble shooter, the fastest runner, the big-league ball players and the toughest boxers. Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. That's why Americans have never lost and will never lose a war. The very thought of losing is hateful to Americans. Battle is the most significant competitions in which a man can indulge. It brings out all that is best and it removes all that is base.
You are not all going to die. Only two percent of you right here today would be killed in a major battle. Every man is scared in his first action. If he says he's not, he's a goddamn liar. But the real hero is the man who fights even though he's scared. Some men will get over their fright in a minute under fire, some take an hour, and for some it takes days. But the real man never lets his fear of death overpower his honor, his sense of duty to his country, and his innate manhood.
All through your army career you men have bitched about what you call 'this chicken-shit drilling.' That is all for a purpose—to ensure instant obedience to orders and to create constant alertness. This must be bred into every soldier. I don't give a f&ck for a man who is not always on his toes. But the drilling has made veterans of all you men. You are ready! A man has to be alert all the time if he expects to keep on breathing. If not, some German son-of-a-bitch will sneak up behind him and beat him to death with a sock full of shit. There are four hundred neatly marked graves in Sicily, all because one man went to sleep on the job—but they are German graves, because we caught the bastard asleep before his officer did.
An army is a team. It lives, eats, sleeps, and fights as a team. This individual hero stuff is bullshit. The bilious bastards who write that stuff for the Saturday Evening Post don't know any more about real battle than they do about fucking. And we have the best team—we have the finest food and equipment, the best spirit and the best men in the world. Why, by God, I actually pity these poor bastards we're going up against.
All the real heroes are not storybook combat fighters. Every single man in the army plays a vital role. So don't ever let up. Don't ever think that your job is unimportant. What if every truck driver decided that he didn't like the whine of the shells and turned yellow and jumped headlong into a ditch? That cowardly bastard could say to himself, 'Hell, they won't miss me, just one man in thousands.' What if every man said that? Where in the hell would we be then? No, thank God, Americans don't say that. Every man does his job. Every man is important. The ordnance men are needed to supply the guns, the quartermaster is needed to bring up the food and clothes for us because where we are going there isn't a hell of a lot to steal. Every last damn man in the mess hall, even the one who boils the water to keep us from getting the GI shits, has a job to do.
Each man must think not only of himself, but think of his buddy fighting alongside him. We don't want yellow cowards in the army. They should be killed off like flies. If not, they will go back home after the war, goddamn cowards, and breed more cowards. The brave men will breed more brave men. Kill off the goddamn cowards and we'll have a nation of brave men.
One of the bravest men I saw in the African campaign was on a telegraph pole in the midst of furious fire while we were moving toward Tunis. I stopped and asked him what the hell he was doing up there. He answered, 'Fixing the wire, sir.' 'Isn't it a little unhealthy up there right now?' I asked. 'Yes sir, but this goddamn wire has got to be fixed.' I asked, 'Don't those planes strafing the road bother you?' And he answered, 'No sir, but you sure as hell do.' Now, there was a real soldier. A real man. A man who devoted all he had to his duty, no matter how great the odds, no matter how seemingly insignificant his duty appeared at the time.
And you should have seen the trucks on the road to Gabès. Those drivers were magnificent. All day and all night they crawled along those son-of-a-bitch roads, never stopping, never deviating from their course with shells bursting all around them. Many of the men drove over 40 consecutive hours. We got through on good old American guts. These were not combat men. But they were soldiers with a job to do. They were part of a team. Without them the fight would have been lost.
Sure, we all want to go home. We want to get this war over with. But you can't win a war lying down. The quickest way to get it over with is to get the bastards who started it. We want to get the hell over there and clean the goddamn thing up, and then get at those purple-pissing Japs. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we go home. The shortest way home is through Berlin and Tokyo. So keep moving. And when we get to Berlin, I am personally going to shoot that paper-hanging son-of-a-bitch Hitler.
When a man is lying in a shell hole, if he just stays there all day, a Boche will get him eventually. The hell with that. My men don't dig foxholes. Foxholes only slow up an offensive. Keep moving. We'll win this war, but we'll win it only by fighting and showing the Germans that we've got more guts than they have or ever will have. We're not just going to shoot the bastards, we're going to rip out their living goddamned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We're going to murder those lousy Hun c&cksuckers by the bushel-f$cking-basket.
Some of you men are wondering whether or not you'll chicken out under fire. Don't worry about it. I can assure you that you'll all do your duty. War is a bloody business, a killing business. The Nazis are the enemy. Wade into them, spill their blood or they will spill yours. Shoot them in the guts. Rip open their belly. When shells are hitting all around you and you wipe the dirt from your face and you realize that it's not dirt, it's the blood and gut of what was once your best friend, you'll know what to do.
I don't want any messages saying 'I'm holding my position.' We're not holding a goddamned thing. We're advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding anything except the enemy's balls. We're going to hold him by his balls and we're going to kick him in the ass; twist his balls and kick the living shit out of him all the time. Our plan of operation is to advance and keep on advancing. We're going to go through the enemy like shit through a tinhorn.
There will be some complaints that we're pushing our people too hard. I don't give a damn about such complaints. I believe that an ounce of sweat will save a gallon of blood. The harder we push, the more Germans we kill. The more Germans we kill, the fewer of our men will be killed. Pushing harder means fewer casualties. I want you all to remember that. My men don't surrender. I don't want to hear of any soldier under my command being captured unless he is hit. Even if you are hit, you can still fight. That's not just bullshit either. I want men like the lieutenant in Libya who, with a Luger against his chest, swept aside the gun with his hand, jerked his helmet off with the other and busted the hell out of the Boche with the helmet. Then he picked up the gun and he killed another German. All this time the man had a bullet through his lung. That's a man for you!
Don't forget, you don't know I'm here at all. No word of that fact is to be mentioned in any letters. The world is not supposed to know what the hell they did with me. I'm not supposed to be commanding this army. I'm not even supposed to be in England. Let the first bastards to find out be the goddamned Germans. Some day, I want them to rise up on their piss-soaked hind legs and howl 'Ach! It's the goddamned Third Army and that son-of-a-bitch Patton again!'
Then there's one thing you men will be able to say when this war is over and you get back home. Thirty years from now when you're sitting by your fireside with your grandson on your knee and he asks, 'What did you do in the great World War Two?' You won't have to cough and say, 'Well, your granddaddy shoveled shit in Louisiana.' No sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say 'Son, your granddaddy rode with the great Third Army and a son-of-a-goddamned-bitch named George Patton!
All right, you sons of bitches. You know how I feel. I'll be proud to lead you wonderful guys in battle any time, anywhere. That's all.

Hahahaha. What the hell was that ??

Interesting stuff but to bad in our days the ennemi do not assemble behind a flag, the ennemi is not a country far far away. The ennemi do not fit a specific description. The ennemi lives amongst us, could be your neighbor, he eats what you eat, shops at the same mall, he has the latest IPhone, he could be any race or color and he waits.

Thank God for globalisation, the only true way to have sleepers everywhere

So there you go : JJP next theme should be SLEEPERS

Patton's speech to the 3rd Army.

LTG : )

#155 7 years ago

George Patton speaks-

#156 7 years ago

Patton is a big part of American's history. You have to be from the moon if you have not heard about this Icon. I do love to follow history and this guy has been on my list for so long. Saddly, so many things about American history and to be honnest I like worldwide history too. I'll never live long enough to know 10% of it but still, he's on my list

#157 7 years ago

Operator error. My mistake.

Machete Kills Again

I approve this message.

#159 7 years ago

I'm afraid that my favorite for the next JJP title doesn't fit the family theme requirement: Killer Klowns From Outer Space!

One word. Trains.

When did this turn into a wall of text thread?

Yeah, I guess one of his speeches was enough. I will edit.

#163 7 years ago

I'm working on a Nightmare Before Christmas machine.

Prototyping it in future pinball.
Building soon using PROC. Still open to suggestions.

I'd imagine that JJP is aiming a bit different than stern when it comes to themes.
Avengers, transformers, Iron Man, Shrek, Family Guy The Sopranos..... the list is long. all good blockbusters but probably not titles many people care about in 20 years?

WOZ and The Hobbit on the other hand has already proven to stand the test of time. Maybe the answer to the next title lies there?

#166 7 years ago
Quoted from DaveH:

Up until Sunday night I would have agreed. After Sunday... ouch. Worst season opener ever. So many things wrong with it. It's raining walkers? Really? Can I shake your hand Mr. Dixon? Ouch. If this season goes in the direction they started, the show will fall. Yes, it is my favorite show on TV right now, but if it stinks that bad, they will lose me.
So my theme perfection would be the Haunted House ride from Disney. Just because it goes back so far in my memory. But none of these matter. I'm sure JJP already has a pretty good idea what their next few games will be. Just no need to say it yet.

True, what a dud it was.

#167 7 years ago

A Quentin Tarantino themed pin would be cool or if it were music I would be the only one on the planet to buy A GWAR pinball, but maybe he will make it for me!?

Make that two people.

Nah, just joking around after that Patton speech. I'm from Canada, we live our doors unlock at night

#171 7 years ago

The Big Lebowski !!
I have many ideas and features in mind to bring the story to a playfield.
That would be great ,,,

Also many nice themes out here:
Nightmare On Christmas ... nice !
Tarrantino .. also nice !

#172 7 years ago

Nightmare Before Christmas would be awesome. So would Willy Wonka. I also think "A Clockwork Orange" could make an interesting theme.

#173 7 years ago

Never heard of that Christmas theme, a movie i geuss? Anyway, i would never do a Christmas pin, cause of many reasons. 2 of them, not everybody is a christ believer, 2 christmas is in the end of december and the rest of the year nobody gives a fuck.

I think speaking of perfection, the muppits and harry potter are the 2 big names for me. Looking at the themes, but also waying in Jacks words about who he is targeting.

These 2 would be on my hotlist for JJP #3.

#174 7 years ago

I would like to see a shooting pin maybe a sniper or call of duty.

#175 7 years ago

Big trouble little China....yup I just went there!!

You missed the mark on Nightmare before Christmas, I know atheist that love that movie, so it's not about "Christ believers"

#177 7 years ago

So, anyone have a chance to check out my Nightmare Before Christmas table in future pinball?

Still open to suggestions before it's committed to white wood.

(i am not one of them, i wont buy it cause the theme is not for me)

John Waters : Pink Flamigos

#180 7 years ago

I really like their song Hey, Soul Sister, but I don't believe the band is big enough to justify a music pin.

Quoted from txstargazer3:

Quoted from Plungemaster:

Speaking of perfection, the Muppets and Harry Potter would be on my hot list for JJP #3.

Let's combine two of these ideas and end up with Muppets in Space.

Pigs in Space!
