So if you already know me, you realize how ridiculous this page is. I’m the guy that prefers to perform his magic behind the scenes, rather than be the front man in the show. Nonetheless, something’s I would like to have documented, but not necessarily on Facebook.
We will try to keep this as Arcade related as possible, but I can’t guarantee some family photos might not end up here as well.
Over the years I’ve been heavily criticized on my coffee consumption.

The picture to the right is of Odd Todd by Todd Rosenberg, who has created a series of humorous Flash cartoons depicting the world of unemployment. His site got me through a period of unemployment of my own, years ago. Check out his book!
If you’re going to pursue arcade and pinball collecting as a hobby, your vehicle will be one of your most important assets. When I started collecting, it started with my 89 Volkswagen GTI and a trailer that I had originally built to tow around my Suzuki quadrunner. The combination of car and trailer built the majority of my early collection, but over the years we have graduated to larger trucks for bigger pulls. Eventually, the trailer had to grow as well.

Bigger vehicles equals bigger hauls, So in 2000, I bought a conversion van for those long hauls to auctions with all my friends.
The current truck of choice is my Mazda B 4000, and a trailer hitch. It’s sort of the best of both worlds as you can throw one in the bed or hitch the trailer for larger pick ups
