First month of the new year and the (self-imposed) heat is on. Good thing we’ve got this guy (Jeremy) to help us out - https://thehardtimes.net/harddrive/scientists-discover-earth-is-heating-up-due-to-some-guy-hitting-consecutive-shots-in-nba-jam/
The news of NBA Jam coming to the Arcade 1UP is enough to kick off the month right. We get down to business with our gameroom updates (Brent has been tandem working on two Getaways and he’s going to build a Pac-Man roller coaster, while Whitney has been putting up gameroom lighting and installed a metal apron and art blades in his AC/DC) and then open the studio for “double shock power” when Corey Stup and Joe Stith from the Louisville Arcade Expo sit in with us to talk about the upcoming 10th anniversary of the show.
There’s a lot of Mortal Kombat love going around this year, so be sure to check out their website for all the show details and to make sure you lock in your early-bird ticket for the weekend!
We then round out the show with what can only be summed up as “Check the cornfield, Rose” (lots of references going around this month…) when J. Patrick of Podcasserole and Cale Hernandez of Marco Specialties sit in with us for the “Podcasting After Dark” panel from the 2019 Grand Ole Gameroom Expo. So much pop culture, so much mind reading and a magic trick to boot. We’ll park that right there.

Ah August….we barely knew ye.
There’s so much that transpired this past month, it’s hard to get it all in a blog post – fortunately for us (and to everyone else’s dismay) we have 3 hours and 20 minutes to tell all you fine listeners all about it! If the math is right, that should be about 1.7 O’Shea Commutes. #WINNING
All joking aside, we’ve got a pretty jam-packed episode for everyone – we discuss the latest play field clear coat issues that has taken the pinball internets by storm over the past couple of weeks and dovetail that with our thoughts on Jurassic Park and Star Wars “Pin”, both announced and released from Stern over the past 30-45 days. We also discuss a really neat offering for anyone with a Cinematronic arcade machine (Star Castle, Armor Attack!, etc.) and talk about a recent trip to Brunswick, GA where Whitney visited the “Pinball Palace” (and Planet Fun) over family vacation. Brent gives us a good education on video and pinball optos and we respond to a challenge issued forth by our friends at Pod Casserole. We also cover off on our monthly updates where Whitney picks up a “spare” Robotron and Brent gives us his thoughts on both Cosmic Carnival and Black Knight: Sword of Rage (spoiler: Whitney loves it, Brent doesn’t… it’s like Donkey Kong all over again).
Oh…. don’t miss Brent’s “Facebook Rant” segment this month… it was so much fun that we named the episode after it!
It’s no April Fools, yo! Instead, it’s our Saturday night livestream show (3/3/2018) direct from the floor of the 2018 Louisville Arcade Expo!
Join in as we discuss everything from arcade, to pinball to Star Wars to Vlassic pickles… it all fits in somewhere along the line and one way or another – it works.
