77: The Day Late, Dollar Short Show


January 2019

Well, well, well – it had to finally happen.  We are a day late on show publishing and I wish we could blame it on border security, government shutdown or the polar vortex, but at the end of it all – it was a failure of our best friend (and arch nemesis): technology.  It takes some time to move around the GIGABYTES of unprocessed audio we make for each month’s show and by the time it lands at its final resting spot to become the MP3 we all know and love, our baritone has traversed its way from the moon and back (figuratively).  Somewhere over Albuquerque, some archive files bit the dust and we had to retry (and retry) before there was success.  But alas, we made it!!

This month we have not only the usual gameroom and hobby updates, but we also hear from a first-timer to the show – Corey Stupp.  Corey is the new face behind the Louisville Arcade Expo (and a developer at Stern Pinball) and gives us the low-down on everything we can expect from the 2019 show.  We also hear from our friends at Marco Specialities as we do some more floor and booth interviews from the 2018 Grand Ole Gameroom Expo.  We then spend some of Brent’s money on my favorite things – Nintendo parts!!  Oh – and a new CPS2 infinikey, joystick grommets and all kinds of necessities.  We give our best thoughts on the new Munsters Pinball from Stern and then make way for some feedback as well.

We may be a day late (and Brent is a dollar short) but we made it!  Thanks for everyone asking “hey – where are you guys?!?!”  Makes us feel loved.
