Episode 98 – We give Transformers more lip service on this episode than our previous 97 episodes combined.

HOOOOLY CRAP.  We totally forgot to hype up the Vegas party in a month.  Crazy.  SORRY NIFTYLEDDOTCOM.  Go.  To Vegas.  February 18th.  For our final episode.

This week, Don and Jeff are joined by Jessica DeNardo to talk about new pins and new designers (the latter of which hasn’t happened since we were in middle school in the early 90’s).  We also talk about our favorite and least favorite games from a company that ships 99.9% of all pinball machines ever of all time*cough*.

There might possibly be some clips from Joe Zenkus on this episode, but possibly not because we went long as hell and HATE LONG ASS PODCASTS.  TIGHT 90, BRO.  Maybe next time.  Sorry, Joe.

Episode 100 Shirt/Poster/Event Details!

Hello Listeners!

It is my honor to announce the impending 100th episode from our favorite pinball discussants and tangeteers, Don and Jeff, co-host extraordinaires of THE Pinball Podcast.

This post is gonna be a doozy, but we wouldn’t have it any other way for the second-longest-winded pinball podcast on the interwebs *a-hem*TaylorAndTommy*a-hem* …excuse me. Something in my throat there. Anyhow, here’s what you can expect:

A) Custom Commemorative T-shirt Art
B) Limited-Edition Screen Printed Poster
C) Episode #100 Grand Hootenanny in Las Vegas (!??!)

– — — ———- — — –

A. Custom Commemorative T-shirt Art

All joking aside, I’ve been wanting to create some artwork for Don and Jeff for years now, and I’m excited to release this new design I illustrated in celebration of their 100th episode. The guys and NiftyLED are sparing no expense. The design will be screen-printed (with 4 colors) on a bougey ring-spun cotton (very soft) navy T-shirt from American Apparel.

We are opening a month-long window for pre-orders that will close on Dec. 31st, 2016. Shirts will be $20 each for sizes S-XL and $23 for sizes XXL-XXXL (+ $5 shipping in the U.S. and $15 shipping outside the U.S. Multiple shirts in one order will not increase shipping cost.). During the pre-order window we will also be accepting orders for female fitted shirts…

…also $20 for sizes S-XXL. Shirts will be ready by mid-February (see “Episode #100 Grand Hootenanny in Las Vegas” below). To secure your shirt, place your order through NiftyLED here:

http://www.niftyled.com/pinball-podcast-100th-episode-shirt/

B. Limited-Edition Screen-Printed Poster

Unlike the commemorative T-shirts, which WILL BE PRINTED regardless of how many are ordered, these signed, hand-numbered, limited-edition prints MIGHT BE PRINTED…if we receive at least 20 pre-orders by Dec. 31st, 2016.

These posters will be screen-printed (just like a good ole’-fashioned playfield or backglass) in a limited run of 50 on high-quality 100# French paper with a nice standard size of 18”x24” (easy to find a frame for). Posters will be sold for $25 each (+$15 shipping inside the U.S. and +$25 shipping outside the U.S.). For delivery, the print will be nestled inside craft paper wrap (to ensure a safe delivery) and snuggled inside a big, fat, 3” diameter tube (for minimal warping).

We were not originally going to offer these prints, but I begged and pleaded because I love The Pinball Podcast, and I’ll be honest, I’m pretty taken by this design. So, let’s make this a reality by placing a pre-order at NiftyLED here:

http://www.niftyled.com/pinball-podcast-100th-episode-print/

In the unfortunate event that we do not receive 20 pre-orders by Dec. 31st, 2016, pre-order money will be refunded in-full and the posters will not be printed. *sad emoji* #firstWorldProblems

C. 100th Episode Grand Hootenanny in Las Vegas

As if all this artsy stuff wasn’t enough, the guys are recording their celebratory 100th episode LIVE in Las Vegas at Flipperspiel Underground on Saturday, Feb. 18th, 2017. Damnit that sounds cool. Excuse me for a moment…

*sets a Travelocity search notification*

Okay, I’m back. So, this is really a thing. You, too, can be a part of this wonderous occasion in the City of PIN, Las Vegas, NV. …and if you act fast, you can probably even find tickets to the same Ween concert that Don will be attending.
