All posts tagged - Louisville Arcade Expo
Join us for our Friday night (3/2/2018) live stream show from the floor of the Louisville Arcade Expo!
Friend of the show Shawn O’ Shea takes up the co-hosting duties for Whitney (he had a family commitment) and hangs on the microphones with Brent while we pull a few folks from the show floor – including our special guest – Mr. Steve Bowden from FunWithBonus.com!
We really ratchet up our cred on this show and lay down 2.5 hours of ‘qualified’ pinball talk this time around – thus making this episode “Jim Hale approved”!
Join in the fun pinball talk and take in the sounds from the expo floor, Louisville-style!
I’ll just park that show title right here, and you can thank Brent for that one! Even though February is always a hectic month for us (getting ready for the Louisville Arcade Expo) and such, we didn’t skimp on the free entertainment this month and managed to cram out 3 hours of shop talk on vector HV cages (hence the show title), a DIY Z80 pod for your Fluke 9010 tester, the absolute best IC puller known to man and a multi-Scramble kit that had Brent spending his own money faster than Whitney can – and that’s some trick. We also give the Pins their due and pay some respect to the fantastic PAPA tutorials and the good work done by Bowen Kerins and his team.
Also, we’d like to give a special shout-out to Scott Danesi (www.scottdanesi.com) as he has graciously allowed us to use his MOST EXCELLENT music as the new official soundtrack for the podcast. Yep – we are now officially almost as cool as Total Nuclear Annihilation.
Ah…winter – we want you gone.
The cold gets so tiring, that we are left with not much to do other than muse on pork and pork-related products. Instead of waxing on about bacon, it’s really time to get back to projects, restoring some games and spending Brent’s money on absolutely everything in sight. Although the weather isn’t cooperating, we aren’t letting that stop us from another great show and 3.5 hours talking shop on arcade and pinball. This month, we gear up for the Louisville Arcade Expo and Jeremy Fleitz sits in with us as we learn what to expect from the 2018 version of the show. We talk fixing Pole Positions – and the FPGA multiboard status, swapping William’s power supplies for modern replacements, Vectrex games, whole-house surge protection and everything under the sun regarding Total Nuclear Annihilation. All up, a pretty dyslexic, but totally fun show!
Oh yeah – Brent wants an Iron Maiden. Come on Stern!!
Yep, you read that right. This month’s show is best described as a fine ‘sit me back’ with your favorite smoking jacket and two of the finest tacos the Border has to offer. We roll back into the studio and recap our thoughts on the Louisville Arcade Expo, catch up on the happenings over both March *AND* April, get back into the swing of Spending Brent’s Money (shameless plug here…we racked up over a $500 bill EASY this month) and were delighted to feature a guest we’ve been wanting to have on the show for months now: Jimmy Litsey – BITD classic arcade operator of yore and man, does he have some cool stories to tell. As always we plow through a ton of great and fun feedback and some industry news as well.
Oh yeah – the best part is always at the end, so be sure to stay through the credits!
All your April Fools belongs to us! Yeah – we went there. So – to help you recover from what was undoubtedly a VERY stressful April 1st, we bring you the recording of the live show we streamed on Saturday night, March 4th 2017. We managed to rotate quite the number of guests in/out of the booth during the course of the livestream (list below) and what more can we say than “we had a blast, and it shows”.
- The Skycurser Devs – Philip Golobish and Christopher Cruz
- Adam and JP from Pod Casserole (with a special episode of “Adam’s Ghost”)
- David Corrigan from the Grand Ole Gameroom Expo
- Whitney’s nephew Gareth Milwood
- Tony Thomas from Louisville’s RecBar
- And last – but certainly not least (technically, she’s first) we have the show intro by Whitney’s daughter Grace – she carried us when we were nowhere to be found…
