Hey folks it’s the middle of the night before I leave for vacation so I figure what better time to unveil my plan for Dirty Coinslot moving into the end of 2019 and beyond.
This site started as an idea / joke. The name? Man, how can I NOT want to create something online with the moniker of Dirty Coinslot.
It speaks to me. In many ways. It’s an homage to the 70s and 80s when we would have a pocketful of quarters at the local arcade dropping quarters into the dirty coinslots of our favorite games. Robotron, SmashTV, SuperSprint, ANYTHING Pinball, NBA Jam, WrestleFest, you name it and we played it. Having a town arcade had it’s upsides.
Fast forward to 2019 and a bunch of mid 40’s looking to relive the glory days of video games through their kids. Yup. Let’s just admit that for a moment here. We buy our kids more “retro” crap than any prior generation it seems. As a way to relive our youth.
No shame in that, at least we’re all looking to give our kids an experience.
So enough history, what in Yars’ Revenge is this podcast going to be about? Simple enough. It’s an extension of the website. Gaming, arcades, pro wrestling, music, if it’s something you see on the pages of the site it’s a potential topic of discussion for the podcast.
I’ll see what guests I can drum up over time. If you are reading this and thinking “Hell yeah, I’ve got a story to tell.” about some old, piss filled arcade you used to stomp around in… hit me up! 25cents [at] dirtycoinslot.com and let’s set up a time to chat and have some fun.
Until the next post in this little corner of my internet.
