They sure did Hopey. A local Round Table Pizza was my weekend go-to in junior high.

I miss the combo Pizza/Arcade Parlors!!!

Avatar 12:14pm Mr Fab:

We have a restaurant near us called The One Up that's packed with classic video games. We held Lil Fab's birthday party there last year, just before the covid shutdown. Food is slightly more upscale than jr high pizza AND they have a bar. Who's up for drunken Centipede?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Otis:

I miss my Atari 2600 rollerball controller from like 1985 at home.
  12:15pm Eric Kilkenny:

@Fab that place looks cool! Yeh that's the new format Retrobarcade
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Otis:

The centipede home controller. Pour the beers Fab, I'm up for drunken Centipede!
  12:16pm Eric Kilkenny:

you can get a usb roller controller and mame for your PC! @Otis
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Otis:

We have a really cool place in Montreal, North Star Pinball that now rents machines. Next door to The Wiggle Room Burlesque. Yea, I miss those 2 spots. Again, one day.
  12:18pm Listener Robert:

Any of you as children ever aspire to build a simple mechanical pinball table, just pins, balls, and holes, no flippers, no electricity? Every actually do it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Otis:

Ha, no games on my PC. I'll get too diverted from work/projects... but we are looking at getting a console soon, Nintendo Switch.
  12:19pm Eric Kilkenny:

@ListenerROBERT Me! :-D I'm totally into it right now I haven't built one yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Oh Otis, the Switch is a great little console. I play games on PC and Playstation but love my Switch the best.

  12:20pm Eric Kilkenny:

oh wait I've built cardboard ones which are pretty much what you're talking about @Robert there's also some cardboard pinball kits out there that are cool!
Avatar 12:21pm MrCrispy:

Wait, vinyl's back?! I have vinyl!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Otis:

I'm waiting for the Vectrex Game Console to come back.
  12:22pm Listener Robert:

The shoebox-and-marbles type that kids have traditionally made is probably what you mean by the cardboard kits. I was thinking about wood, requiring a good deal more commitment.
  12:22pm Eric Kilkenny:

@Otis I've been hearing about that place from pinball podcast/twitch stream stuff we have 2 super cool places here wedgehead and next level which has like 400 pinball machines!
Avatar 12:23pm MrCrispy:

Glad to hear I'm not the only one still hiding out, feels like it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Otis:

Ha, not that many machines at North Star but a good dozen machines and a nice place to have a few beers with friends. Looking forward to that again.
  12:25pm Listener Robert:

I might've gotten into woodwork like that, but I got into fireworking instead.

One of my fav James Brown records.
  12:41pm Eric Kilkenny:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Otis:

'that ain't (no it is on medium cool) right!'
Avatar 12:42pm MrCrispy:

Ok, I've been researching Alley Cat - written by Dutch pianist Frank Bjorn whose stage name was Bent Fabric. I mean come on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Otis:

Nice. Shakin' James like the legendary 12" Feelin' James! Gotta search Nick Bike out now.
  12:43pm Eric Kilkenny:

I like this Nick Bike dude I've heard a few things from him all great

Bookmarked his Soundcloud, thanks much.

Bent Fabric was HUGE when I was little.
Avatar 12:47pm Mr Fab:

McCrispy, did you hear "Stop Hitting Yourself" yesterday? I think DJ Spacebrother played two versions of "Alley Cat."
  12:49pm Eric Kilkenny:

if spacebro was here he'd vote for alley cat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm Krys O.:

Alley Cat won a Grammy for Best Rock and Roll Recording. I recall dancing to it in gym class en masse sort of like the way we had to square dance in gym which I learned many years later was linked to white supremacists.
Avatar 12:52pm MrCrispy:

@MrFab no I missed it, do you remember which versions?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Franco Twinkie:

I was in the other room sorting photos and I heard the voice of Wimpy!
Avatar 12:54pm Mr Fab:

No sorry, was one version. by country guitarist Chet Atkins
Avatar 12:55pm MrCrispy:

@Krys O that doesn't surprise me that gym square dancing was a white supremacist plot - I always felt uncomfortable with it but it was mostly because I had to get that close to girls
Avatar 12:56pm MrCrispy:

I looooove Chet Atkins! His album of Beatles covers is a favorite
  12:56pm Eric Kilkenny:

@Franco for you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Franco Twinkie:

I'm such an easy mark, you people know how to get my attention.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Franco Twinkie:

I really need to get dressed and leave the house, but nothing out in the god forsaken world will be as entertaining as this show.
  1:03pm Eric Kilkenny:

Any last votes for Impanema, Alley Cat or Cast your fate? Currently +3 Impanema +2 Alley Cat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Krys O.:

I love Cast Your Fate, but I'll vote for Alley Cat.

I'm muted in a Zoom meeting but still listening, high 5 Krys O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Krys O.:

Square dancing was supposed to counter the influence of Black culture and music on America's youth. LOL!
Avatar 1:14pm MrCrispy:

I'm actually ok with listening to All In The Family
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Kris, I remember seen these two people square dancing reflective stickers in El Monte, which was a stronghold of Nazis and all sorts of hillbilly types when I was a kid. It just dawned on me that in was code signaling.

Yeah, ALley Cat is already pretty boogie-woogie. an Ipanema boogie-woogie would be a real genre-clash.

Used to listen to my brother's typing lesson LP at parties. I think my older sibs and cousins were stoned. It used to crack them up.

I was watching the news update on the screen embedded in the gas pump yesterday, and it said that Monday was the lowest positive count in L.A. county since the pandemic started. Which I take to mean I have to started putting on socks now.
