54: Two Tacos and a Cigar


April 2017

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!

Here’s how the show timings break down for this month:

  • Part 1 – 00-01:42 – Updates and what’s happening this month
  • Part 2 – 01:43 – 02:22 – Spend Brent’s Money
  • Part 3 – 02:22 – 03:23 – Operator Talk with Jimmy Litsey @ LAX 2017
  • Part 4 – 03:23 – 04:16 – News and Feedback
  • Part 5 – 04:17 – 04:21 – Spooky Pinball Tribute and Outtakes
