Ep. 38 Blunt Force Drama

Ep. 38 Blunt Force Drama

August 26, 2019

In episode 38 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast Matt and Jason converse about Pinball, and despite the title, we completely left out the drama.  We play Flip, Bolt or Torch 1992 edition, one of the most epic years for pinball.

We give an update on "A Devil WITH a Cause".  We go over "Industry News," "What we have been up to," AND we introduce a new segment entitled "Coffin Drop" where we will give an excuse to gripe and complain about things related to the silver sphere.

If you would like to help us help some very deserving children take their minds off some of the battles they face, but do not wish to be in the running for Gorgar, please consider a donation, large or small, to Project Pinball.  In the memo or notes for you donation, please mention the Slap Save Pinball Podcast campaign or "Cardinal Glennon" so the funds go to this particular machine.

Ep. 37 A Devil WITH A Cause

Ep. 37 A Devil WITH A Cause

August 18, 2019

In episode 37 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt and Jason announce their plans to work with Project Pinball to place a pinball machine in a St. Louis Children's Hospital named "Cardinal Glennon" that Jason reveres for it's important role in his past.  See the summary below for the details.  We also discuss the trials and tribulations of our first stream last week, talk float trips, family trees that model flag poles AND we have a 2016 edition of Flip, Bolt or Torch!  We plan to stream Gorgar this week to promote our campaign described below.  More details will follow as they become available.  

The summary of our plans:

Jason and Matt will be donating all funds from a sale of a very special collector quality/near collector quality Gorgar and many extras to Project Pinball to help fund them placing a machine in a local children's hospital.  It will be listed on Pinside and Facebook Marketplace in the next couple of days.  

It has a clear coated playfield, beautiful backglass, new flipper mechs and a nearly perfect cabinet.  I plan to list it for sale and donate 100% of the proceeds to Project Pinball for the purpose of funding the placement of a new machine in the hospital.  I plan on asking 2500K OBO in the hopes that someone is generous enough to offer that, or more, to know that they helped make this happen.  In addition to the great machine you will take home, we plan to:
 
-Provide a premium framed certificate commemorating the sale of the machine and describing the funding and thanking the purchaser. 
-A public display of the receipt showing the ENTIRE amount and 100% raised for the machine was given DIRECTLY to Project Pinball.   (A pure donation, not raffle purchases)
-A HUGE swag pack of everything I can get my hands on.  Other manufacturers are helping by providing giveaways that can be bundled with the machine to help in interest and encourage a generous donation in its sale price.   I am working on more.  The machine will list very soon!  
-An offer, if the end purchaser desires, to be interviewed by Matt and I on our podcast and thank them personally.  
-Thank yous, repeatedly, to all vendors, manufacturers, media and collectors that either offer something to bundle with the machine, make a donation towards our goal or promote it through mentions or articles.  
-If the buyer wishes to pick up the machine in person, I will put them up in a local hotel, and offer my game room for their use the entire time they are in St. Louis in addition to joining us in person, on a special stream (our stream should be launching this week).   In addition, join Matt and I for dinner and drinks.  We will pick up the tab.  
-More that has yet to be determined I hope.  It will be a helluva deal for $2,500 bucks.  I hope so much so, that people quickly make that price laughable.
 
NOTE: There has been some confusion about the machine being placed in the hospital.  Gorgar is NOT being placed in a children's hospital.  Gorgar is being SOLD to give the funds to project pinball so they can choose the machine that is appropriate for Cardinal Glennon.  
 
If you would like to help us help some very deserving children take their minds off some of the battles they face, but do not wish to be in the running for Gorgar, please consider a donation, large or small, to Project Pinball.  In the memo or notes for you donation, please mention the Slap Save Pinball Podcast campaign or "Cardinal Glennon" so the funds go to this particular machine.

Ep. 36 Dutch Greed, Upcoming Stream News & Name That Pin!

August 11, 2019

In Episode 36 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt & Jason discuss the greed in the air surrounding Dutch Pinball, details about the upcoming streaming schedule and we play the popular Name That Pin!  

It's Jason's turn to discpher 1 second long clips of pin sounds and guess the machine.  It is agonizing with some trademark complaining, according to Matt.  We also dive into our thoughts on flippant flippers trying to make the worst of a bad situation regarding Dutch Pinball and The Big Lebowski.  Thanks for joining us!  

FYI:  We plan to start the official Slap Save Pinball Stream starting Thursday August 15th at 7:30 PM Central TimeAdd us on Twitch to get live updates ( slapsavepinballpodcast ). More details to follow.  Swing by, hang with us, have a beer, and lets talk, and play, some pinball.

Ep. 35 Ten Compelling Questions In Pinball

Ep. 35 Ten Compelling Questions In Pinball

August 4, 2019

In Episode 35 of the infamous (like the 3 Amigos, we hear that is even BETTER than famous) Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt and Jason discuss the 10 Compelling Questions in Pinball.  Laughs, lunacy and lame, lazy luddite lamenting.  We obsess over everything pinball... and words that start with "L" apparently.  Love ya, ya loons!  Ludicrous.

Ep 33 Prototypes: What Might Have Been

Ep 33 Prototypes: What Might Have Been

July 22, 2019

In Ep 33 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt and Jason discuss Prototypes and What Might Have Been.  Its a feature about hard to find, interesting, failed attempts to shake things up.  Speaking of failing, this was take 2, because Matt left the memory card in a tent somewhere in Michigan, so we had to re-record.  Matt has been placed on super secret pinball probation and swears he will atone for his blatant transgression by allowing Jason to swat him with ham while he dances to "Careless Whisper."  We will then call it even.  No harm no foul. We also talk about an incredible pickup of an incredible game at a Pinball mecca.  We discuss our upcoming streaming plans of off the beaten path titles AND we dive into "Flip, Bolt or Torch" '95 edition, the "favorite" game of my uncle Terry, who hates pinball, me, my aunt... and only pretends to listen to this "godforsaken podcast that is an epic waste of time."     

Unhealthy horse and "little people" fetishes, Windows 95 vs 3.1, Kabuki, Baywatch art inspired by lower digits of humped mammals, yes, we have it all.
