    Really been out of touch with Pinside for the past couple months. What have been the highlights and threads that shouldn't be missed? New products, game developments, duels at Noon, meltdowns, breakups? Facts and innuendo just as good!

    I have seen that Mudflaps' has switched from Hasslehoff to Inugo Montoya. Case of temporary insanity surely....

    From my end...

    ....Jamie is a satisfied new owner of the CC I sold him, just in case Don Quixote is still staking me out. I picked up a Royal Flush with a perfect BG, nice cabinet and crappy pf before I took off for a month of business travel and now at the beach for the Summer. Looking for a better pf. I think VID should have my F14 finished by late September and really looking forward to getting that and hoping to meet him in the process. It would be great to have it for the Second Annual Polish Pinfest at WizzoWorld and probably will not schedule it until I have the F14. Herg is holding a System-11 LED OCB for me, so thanks again Herg. The F14 will be my first game with LEDs much to the delight of Mudflaps and Hwawonyu. Cap't Nemo is going through some production decisions, and Antonio is hoping to deliver in November. Pics of cabinet looked good although I have a bit nervous about having boards mounted on the cabinet floor. I hope there will be some type of protective cover over them. Still looking to sell my nice IJ and considering selling the MB as well but won't be back in Virginia until midAugust. I would be open to trading my IJ for a very nice SM plus a little cash. Been playing a lot of Spiderman down here since it is the only real pin available. Always fun when the upper flipper dies, but the op fixed it pretty quickly. My high of 343M set two years ago is still up, and I almost broke it the other day. Danny and I have all the top scores and highs except for two features: royal whatever and another one. Played Game Show for the first time down here. Having grown up in the 60s and 70s with all the game show, it was fun and nostalgic.

    Hope everyone is having a good Summer. Ironically, my favorite restaurant down here this Summer is Flippers! Not pin related.

    Well, Schlock Doc got a vasectomy as an adult 7 1/2 weeks ago, and his junk is still in traction

    Rarehero started eating meat again. Dropped the veggie crap!

    You don't want to miss the "Thunderbirds" pinball thread! It's a good read.

    #5 7 years ago

    As you can see, it's been very quiet around here.

    somebody hates stern.. somebody hates jersey jack... both love drama.

    consider yourself caught up!

    #7 7 years ago

    Read the David Hasselhoff/Black Knight thread.

    #8 7 years ago

    Welcome back Dan! My man-crush on David Hasselhoff is alive and well thanks to your gift. We missed you at Tad's place, but I'm looking forward to your next sausage fest. You better have it before October, because I'll be on a 6 month hiatus. Picking up a RBION tomorrow and buying Jason's TFTC, so my little pin collection is growing.

    Until next time!

    Edit: I see you're still away, so a safe journey home in August.

    Thumbs up for everyone. First round on me!

    Thunderbirds-is that a reference to the 60's show that was done with marrionnettes? One of my favorite as a kid. There was a recent movie in the past five or so years, no?

    Kyle, I will do the best I can. It isn't a party without you. Congrats on the new pins. I enjoyed Ripleys when I played it. Don't hassle the hoff, man! Saw a great tee down here you need for your collection, "The last mosquito that bit me was hungover for two weeks."

    conside:r yourself caught up!

    Same old-same old! The Price Police are hyper active, every Woz thread gets beat to death by the critics and any reference to Strykers Arcade starts a shitnado, so nothing new here. Enjoy your summer.

    Indeed, best Pinside thread so far by a mile.

    #14 7 years ago

    Dan, playing a lot of pinball down in Richmond. Look forward to getting up your way again. Your hospitality has always been first class.

    #15 7 years ago

    Hey super mcWizzle your mcShnizzle on the grill-izzle.....or something like that?!

    Besides the FLYERS buying out some high end contracts, drafting some burly, slow defenseman, and picking up some new talent (emery, VLC, and streit).....life here on pinside has moved right along like you never existed

    And I applaud you opening up to LEDs....that F14 will deserve to be treated in a respectable manner and needs to be blindingly bright! It doesnt disappoint at all. I also agree with you in the process of letting go of IJ and MB....blah....maybe one more solid state will be added to the collection?!

    When you do return home pinside will be here waiting for you....like you never left

    I'm looking forward to your next sausage fest.

    Did you say "sausage fest"? Say what? I'm not only scared...but scarred as well!

    #18 7 years ago

    Here is what you missed Wizzo...........
    "WOZ sucks!"
    "Metallica was designed by Jesus!"
    "10,000 by Christmas!"

    Jesus also designed BBH.

    #20 7 years ago

    We all agree on everything now.
    One of us. One of us. One of us.

    Quoted from ZippyThePinhead:

    I didn't really mean sausage fest. I meant a predominately male dominated gathering where we all lament the total lack of hot babes as we drink beer by the keg, eat chips, and talk about how bad-ass we are.

    Okay, a sausage fest.

    #22 7 years ago

    can someone post a link to the hasslehoff thread

    #23 7 years ago

    I am realizing that Jesus is the #1 designer of pinball in the world.

    New pins, Old pins

    Stuff for sale. Fan Boys, Haters and late night dot giffers

    Oh and centerflanks one of a kind Tron Apron sold and was resigned and I believe traded again after that. As the pinside turns
