August 2020 - it took a lot from us. 

The news of losing both Chadwick Boseman and Curt Vendell hurt and hurt badly as their contributions to the collective community are as meaningful in both number as they are in prolific and lasting impact.

With that, we reflect on the respective contributions from both and pay our due respects, then it’s back to business as usual with gameroom updates, spending some of Brent’s money, discussion on the new Pixel Planet Arcade that is opening soon in TN and we speculate a bit on the newest game release by Stern Pinball (Avengers: Infinity Quest).  Add to all of that and we feature a panel discussion (entitled “Dan Kitchen’s Goldrush”) from the 2019 Portland Retro Gaming Expo where Dan Kitchen talks about his upcoming game for the Atari 2600 (it’s a sequel to Activision’s Keystone Kapers) and is joined by his brother Garry Kitchen and prolific game designer David Crane.

Also – don’t forget to enter the Lit Frame’s contest giveaway!  We’re taking submissions until Midnight EST on Sept. 15th!

Wherever you are in the world – we thank you for listening and hope that you and your family are safe and continue to be in good health.

We hope you enjoy the episode!

But wait…there’s more! (more…)

April 2020

It’s amazing what 6 weeks will do from a “perspective” perspective…when this was recorded, the nationwide COVID-19 response hadn’t even kicked into gear and we had no idea what was in store for us.

It’s our hopes that if you weren’t able to join the live broadcast (or if you want to re-listen) then this (and the upcoming Saturday livestream show) will bring some cheer to your shelter-in-place regiment – whatever that may look like.

On this episode, we had the distinct good fortune of getting the following to sit down in front of the mic with us at expo:

  • Jeremy Fleitz (where we talked a LOT of Tron pinball)
  • Corey Sims (of RecBar 502/812)
  • Daniel Pesina and his manager Luis (this conversation went almost two hours and we talked a LOT about Mortal Kombat!!)

Wherever you are in the world – we thank you for listening and hope that you and your family are safe and continue to be in good health.

Enjoy the show!

October 2018

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:

  1. Flashlights
  2. ColorDMD
  3. Flashlights
  4. New Pinball announcements
  5. Flashlights
  6. Stern code updates
  7. Flashlights
  8. Spend Brent’s Money
  9. Flashlights
  10. 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).

September 2018

Oh literally…how do we love thee?  Let me count thy ways…and it’s a lot.  So much so that we cover every topic from A to Z – literally.  Brent goes to a comic-con where he sees literally EVERYBODY.  He works on his Tron and has to fix literally EVERYTHING.  His Thermoforming machine and 3D printer are literally STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS and his gameroom literally hasn’t been touched in MONTHS.  Whitney is no better – he has had his TNA for a week and just now got it moved into his house – LITERALLY!  Add to that, he’s got nothing better to do than spend Brent’s money on a literal boatload of cool stuff (seriously – Wico joysticks, Neo Geo LED Marquee lights and a dual Punch-Out/Super Punch-Out adapter) this month.  Pair that with some literally awesome feedback and some news and it all adds up to 4+ hours of arcade and pinball goodness!

You’ll literally LOVE this month’s show!

Figuratively – I think we’re spot on.

January 2018

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!!
