It’s been a loooong 31 days since the last episode and we’ve had plenty of time to practice our signature moves on spending Brent’s money, white-washing gameroom updates and making half-educated attempts at industry and hobby news coverage. Should that stop us this month? WE SAY NO!
So in our best declaration of determination and comeuppance, we return for the October show and unfortunately there’s nothing spooky about it – at all. However, we do have everything that you’ve come to know and love with the show as well as the following major topics:
- New Pinball announcements
- Stern code updates
- Spend Brent’s Money
- Flashlights (just to round it out).
Yep – it’s arcade and pinball podcasting, BT style (and with some Grace added in to keep the guys on task).
There’s no better way to wrap the year and send 2017 out with a bang than to wax nostalgic on why we sound absolutely NOTHING like the smooth tones of our favorite Christmas music poet from way back…Mr. Burl Ives.
TBH, we don’t really dig much into Burl Ives in this episode, but it did make for a couple good references and it is that time of year! Instead, what you get for this last show is 2017 is a healthy heaping of reflection on the year, some current updates, some spending of the Brent’s money, some discussion on EEPROM programmers and some non-committal pinball talk about Guardians of the Galaxy and Total Nuclear Annihilation. Oh yeah – that and we want to go see Star Wars: The Last Jedi – like really bad.
We thank everyone for their time in 2017 – we know you’ve got a choice in podcasts and we appreciate you continuing to spend your time with us! We will try (like harder than we did this year) to continue the push above mediocrity for 2018 – onwards and upwards!!
“Book ‘em Danno” – it’s the big ‘Five-O’ show!
There’s so much crammed into this month’s episode that we had to loosen the belt a bit and put on the stretchy pants, because I think we’ve hit an all-time high score when it comes to show length, commutes and long-distance runs…. seriously.
It’s Christmas day and what better way to say “Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays” to everyone across the globe than to drop the December episode right on top of all your wrapping paper! Some might say the release of this month’s episode is well-timed, and others might consider it sheer coincidence. Either way, we’re not saying, as it’s mostly luck and a bit of eggnog-fueled commitment when you look under the covers.
Cousin Eddie would be proud.
We catch up on a lot of happenings since last month, discuss our Christmas and Holiday plans and spend *WAY* too much time talking about the Atari Flashback portable, despite easily spending over $500 of Brent’s money this month on all kinds of sweet tools and arcade paraphernalia.
So do what we do – burn all that wrapping paper, grab a beer and chill out and let the Holidays surround you while we send 2016 out in style!
And just like that…. a warm, heaping pile of Thanksgiving Leftovers makes it way to your plate for what is episode #48! We blame it on the tryptophan, so bear with us as we make room for seconds and break off a rather unconventional (in…like…it’s under 4 hours) episode of the podcast. We’ve had a pretty big November – we attended the Grand Ole Gameroom Expo and put on a couple of sessions there, met up with half of the Gameroom Junkies, slummed with Adam and JP of the Adam and JP Show, ogled the awesome work of Chris Royalty at Hot Rod Arcade/Pinball Plating and even rubbed some elbows with Patrick Scott Patterson. Add on top of that a bevy of gameroom updates, trials and tribulations with the new Ghostbusters Pinball and some major progress on the Sky Skipper Project and you’ve got something worthy of the finest cranberry sauce that money can’t buy.
I *KNOW* Brent is thankful for this month, as I give his wallet a break and we catch up on a boatload of feedback as well. We love hearing from our listeners, so keep it coming!
We hope you enjoy this ‘food coma’ of an episode as we all get geared for what is sure to be a great Christmas! (more…)
