We finally made it to October! Yep… the leaves are falling, the temperature is cooling off, and scary things are popping up everywhere. Which explains why Bryan Kelly has returned to the podcast with a brand new segment! We hear from David about his foray into pinball pop art with “Life Under Glass”. Joe from PinballSTAR is back with his buddy Rich from The White Rose Gameroom Show. Of course Terry from Pinball Life has got something cool for you to win just by listening… and we give you all the prep Spooky Pinball is making for Pinball Expo. Take that boils & ghouls!
Yep… It’s Labor Day weekend in Benton. The biggest weekend of the entire year in our little village! So, this show is a bit short on content, but not short of mediocrity. What we lack in quality, we make up for in some serious bribery! You can win some cool stuff just by listening to this show. Really, you can! Like A Gozmod for your Attack From Mars, and not 1, not 2, not even 3 or 4, but 5 bent plastics (TM) from Pinball Life! Kick back, enjoy the show, and have a great fall ya’ll. In the words of almost Ed Sullivan, we’ll have a really big sho’ for you next month!
We’re late… we’re late… for a very important… uh, well not date, but show air time anyway. This month we hear from Mark (aka Sparky) from Sparky Pinball. Sparky is talking about his new MDM’s… what’s an MDM? Listen to the show, visit his website, and see these cool little beauties for yourself. We also talk to Joe Newhart from PinballSTAR about ANOTHER WoZ going to ANOTHER children’s hospital. Kudos to Joe and everyone who helped make this happen AGAIN! Terry from Pinball Life gives away yet another great prize… KT makes us dinner, and Bug and I talk a little Godzilla & pinball. Look.. up in the sky, it’s a flipper, it’s a crazy busy dude, it’s Spooky Pinball Podcast #53!
It’s kids takeover month once again, as Charlie is up to his eyeballs in trying to get games out the door. Bug & Squirrel host, and interview the Minions… not those cute characters from Despicable Me, the guys who make the games at Spooky Pinball LLC. Charlie & Joe Newhart from Pinball STAR Amusements pop in later to talk with Gerry Stellenberg from Multimorphic, and some of the revolutionary things he’s up to. Toss in a cool prize from Pinball Life, some random fun, and you’ve got a show run by kids that isn’t exactly child’s play!
This month we get super colorful when we talk to Randy at ColorDMD. If you don’t know what color DMD is, you need to check out their site & videos, and gasp in amazement. We also talk to Jonathan from Pinball Magazine about the new book “Pinball” by Santiago Ciuffo. I’m prepared to call this the best book on pinball photography ever released… check it out, and learn something about the history of pinball in Argentina while you’re being entertained. Toss in the EM Dungeon, a cool prize from Terry at Pinball Life (and another top secret bonus prize) and you’ve got 1 hour, 38 minutes and 34 seconds of some pretty good pinball entertainment!
It’s off to the Midwest Gaming Classic once again for team Spooky! Lots of interviews with everyone from pinball dignitaries like Nate from Coast to Coast Pinball, to Taro the dog (really… KT interviewed Rob Anthony‘s dog). Hear all about the show, the pins, the vids, the costume contest… and speaking of contests, Terry from Pinball Life gives away a cool set of Brite Buttons to a lucky listener. Joe from PinballSTAR stops in to pre-talk Allentown Pinfest, and beyond that I guess you’ll just have to listen and find out. Hope you enjoy the show, and keep flippin’ pinball dudes & dudettes!
Well if it isn’t April 1st already! No practical jokes happening here, just springing into another month of podcast excellence. Ok… acceptable podcast practices. This month, we talk to Dan Loosen from the Midwest Gaming Classic, and Joe from PinballSTAR brings a guy we should have had on a long time ago… Matt from Back Alley Creations! Add in some goodies from Pinball Life, and this April just showers on the podcast goodness.
What can we say… as far as pinball podcasts go, this one has a distinct odor that may be offensive to the senses. Bryan, Brian, & Jesse visit from MN and get a sneak peak at a warehouse raid… FROM HELL! Bryan Kelly comes in to co-host with yours truly, and we give away 8 sets of Super Bands from Terry at Pinball Life. Joe from PinballSTAR stops by with Mickey Treat (no, that’s not an ice cream bar at Disney) to tell us about his adventures in coin-op. On this show we do something we rarely do… just talk pinball. 4 years of podcasting. I’m finding that very hard to believe, but thanks to everyone for the encouragement, and with a little luck we’ll be here a while longer.
What were we thinking?! I’m betting that’s how we look back at this show a year from now… time was short, I lost a day to yet another pinball project, and this is what we came up with. I sure hope you like it… or are very forgiving loyal listeners! Terry from Pinball Life gives away some Bent Plastics (TM)… Joe from PinballSTAR gives away an iPod and introduces us to Steve Epstein, from Modern Pinball NYC. The mighty James Willing takes us into the new year with the E.M. Dungeon. If that wasn’t scary enough, our podcast turns into a goofy reality TV show. Enjoy!… we hope. Never let it be said Spooky Pinball doesn’t take chances!
Happy New Year pinball dudes and dudettes! This month we talk about America’s Most Haunted. Not just the game, THE MOVIE! Really, there is an America’s Most Haunted movie! Chris Randall and Joe Anderson stop by to talk about the freaky coincidence with myself and Ben Heck. Beyond that, for the first time ever, Bug and Squirrel (our kids) are taking over the show… We almost answer listener questions, Terry from Pinball Life gives away a mod Ahhnold would love, and Joe from PinballSTAR Amusements brings a young impressive talent by the name of Brendan Bailey by to talk all things art & pinball. Welcome to 2014… Spooky Pinball Style!
