    Man, I was just re-reading Vid's guide to repopulating playfields.

    Damn, I miss that guy.

    #602 1 year ago

    Did he flame out of here in a blaze of glory? Or did he just suddenly disappear one day?

    #603 1 year ago

    i heard he went to stern to finish the ghostbusters code

    #604 1 year ago

    Perhaps he's still in Yemen, giving out flu shots.

    You don’t find Vid.

    Vid finds you.

    #607 1 year ago

    Someone spotted him in California

    #608 1 year ago

    I heard he is personally keeping the clear from pooling on newer playfields.

    Every night he comes down theoughvthe chimney and massages the clear back into place around the sling posts.

    Some nights, if you listen carefully, you might just hear him sliding the glass off the table.

    I do hope he’s alright and just taking 5. I’ve learned a ton from his posts.

    I heard a guy ordered BM66 for $89 but Vid showed up instead

    Nice side thread reference!

    #611 1 year ago

    You fail to understand, Vid is not a man you find. He can only choose to find you. You wish to speak to him? Go to the edge of the desert, look up. Canis Minor, the dog that followed Orion through the sky, follow the brightest star. Walk until you are almost dead, then keep walking. When you are on your last breath, he will find you ... or he will not.

    #612 1 year ago

    I heard he went way underground and is hangin with the first skater Animal Chin....

    Mabey he's visiting ( the little girls who saw god and walked backwards ) to tell them they can walk forwards now. Is he god?

    Vid was more than just a bunch of recycled Chuck Norris jokes.

    He was old as the hills yet young as a newborn calf

    He was a rabble rouser, yet an agent of calm

    He was an institution.

    #615 1 year ago
    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    He was an institution.

    Or maybe he's in an institution?

    I hear Vid is having an open house today

    He took up a mission to go around the world and 'take care' of Pinside crybabies or so I've heard...

    #618 1 year ago

    All kidding aside - does anyone on pinside know the guy personally or have a phone number to confirm he is okay?

    #619 1 year ago

    Vid provide great information on how to fix games and his post were funny too. Truly miss him.

    #620 1 year ago

    What I think is interesting about VID is he posted a hell of a lot here on Pinside yet no one seems to know him personally. How can someone that was into the hobby as heavy as he seems to be not have people who know him? Something kind of strange about the entire VID story for sure.

    Even with just the games in his collection you would think he got friendly with someone buying machines or what ever.

    Quoted from brainmegaphone:

    He was posting on KLOV for awhile during this hiatus. He was also active today on strat-talk the guitar site.

    #622 1 year ago

    I think VID is hanging out at Elvira's haunted house . . .

    #623 1 year ago

    I heard vid was able to make cassandra's boobs even bigger, yet STILL fit them in the dress...

    #624 1 year ago

    He is definitely at the rave at Area 51.

    Wrong rave.

    Dang, I was saving my best recycled Chuck Norris jokes for last. Thanks buddy...

    #627 1 year ago

    More of a Bruce Lee kinda of guy. Lol

    Even the tall man required a team of experts behind him.

    Wrong...the clear is pooling like tears because Vid is gone. He never has to take off the glass.............lol

    #631 1 year ago

    I wonder if he can still help me with a strat purchase. Vid if you are reading this please pm me. I'll buy one as long as you sign it.

    I have swam to an island to get away from my inlaws. I have a jack daniels bottle buried like a pirate but it was half emptied not from me this summer. Re buried there was a little pack of fuses I really needed.
    I think Vid is in Canada.

    #634 11 months ago

    John List told me, before he died, that Hannibal Lecter told him Vid was really Kaiser Soze.

    #635 11 months ago

    Vid is an intergalactic traveler who lives at home with his mother, on the seventh planet from the sun. If you think you’ve seen him in public, you haven’t, because he’s in Uranus. The hemorrhoids you thought you had .... aren’t.

    #636 11 months ago

    I just checked the thread about uranus....didn't see vid anywhere in there

    Just a sign for a fudge factory...

    Butt in fairness, it was a nice sign. Maybe Vid restored it?

    Hey, I just posted that sign. I received it via an encrypted message from an unidentified intermediary, so I have a strong sense that your assumption is accurate.

    #638 11 months ago

    My money is on doin' time.

    #639 11 months ago

    He is with Reggie on Halloween.

    Quoted from TheHueManatee:

    He's back![quoted image]

    Didn't have much choice. His nicely-aged shill account he'd been using (or at least one of them) since he "disappeared" was blocked late last year. So start over with a new, no posts, bannable-if-discovered-again shill account or go back to vid1900 were the options on the table.

    #644 8 months ago

    Good to see that he logged in! Hope to see him posting again. Vids knowledge-humor combo has been missed by many on here.

    I don’t fully understand the shill account thing, but glad he’s back. There’s a wealth of knowledge in that Old Man. (“Boy!!!!!”)

    #646 8 months ago

    WELCOME BACK, VID!

    Genuine question here.... what is he shilling?

    I don’t know about Vid, but ...

    Stanley sips seaweed slurpies on the South shore while simmering in the sun and shills silicon dioxide samples to seagulls on Sundays.
