Great job on the show, guys. Consistently entertaining as usual. I didn't like the Top 10 so much. I love licensed themes as much as anyone, but at the same time I recognize the creative freedom that is lost. Good call grouping the multiple game franchises as such, that way I didn't have to be bothered that High Speed didn't make it but The Getaway did. Also the fourteen hours of expo-related stuff made me want to scrounge the money necessary to get to Midwest Gaming Classic a day early the help out. I've helped in the past, and it's super fun to help out at cons.

Thou hast ended a fullsome show quite smartly Sir Miner! A show that hast bequeathed a great deal of tom foolery upon we humble listeners. Having proven thine comedic efficacy with thine aforementioned podcast that thou hast wrought, to thee and thine minions I shall be indebted Sir. Much joy dost cometh hither and henceforth. Huzzah!

I like Black Hole. I remember playing it for the first time at a mom and pop type business. I think it was one of those hispanic stores of all places. But in any case, the machine was in good shape and I almost got the replay.
For the Elvira machine, I like it when she says "don't touch me there" when you press the start button when there are no credits on it.
The others on the list are great also and I could tell stories about those also. I have not played Evel Knievel since about 30 years now. Maybe someday it will show up at the Pinball Hall of Fame or at California Extreme.

Yes, close enough.


Translation attempt: "That's alright with me, you know"

Unfortunately not.

"Thar't" is an abbreviation of thou art, i.e. You are alright by me.

A little test for you then, now you're an expert.

Translate this bit of Yorkshire dialect (without cheating).

Hey UK you should do a Welsh character at the end of the next show. Now that would be completely unintelligible.

I find it difficult to stay in Welsh mode, I drift into something else, usually brummie.

Ah doun't kna li' wha' theur are saying!

Even though I'm a California native, my favored forms of televised entertainment as a kid were Monty Python, The Goodies (and to a lesser degree, Benny Hill). But none of those have given me the answer to your query, I'm afraid.

I could cheat, and come up with something, but I won't. Does it have anything to do with pudding?

No, but it does have something to do with a tin.

Well then I guess it has to do with 3 of them then.

How about one of these: http://www.procook.co.uk/shop/Bakeware/Non-Stick-Bakeware/Pro-Cook-Non-Stick-Yorkshire-Pudding-Tray/d31/sd277?code=4405

Would that be a tin tin tin tin?

Hey guys, thanks, I really enjoyed listening to you guys dissect The Retro Machine. It was fun. You reminded me of the water cannons, which I DO have in my queue and were supposed to be in this last article. Alas, I just forgot. Great show!

Sadly not, but I like the reference to Yorkshire Puddings. Even a fine upstanding Lancashire man like myself appreciates Yorkshire Puddings.

I fear you will never get it, so
Tin tin tin translates as:
It isn't in the tin

[example]
"Gerrus kayli out o' tin."
"Tin tin tin."

Not in a million years would I have guessed that.

I briefly worked with a guy from Yorkshire in the mid nineties (when I was a stage manager at a studio in LA where they did a lot of TV commercials and music videos). I remember him saying this:

See all, 'ear all, say nowt. Eat all, sup all,
pay nowt. An' if th'ivver does owt for
nowt, allus do it for thissen


Which I believe I've correctly translated below:

See all, hear all, say nothing.
Eat all, drink all, pay nothing.
If you ever do anything for nothing, do it for yourself.

A perfect translation and a typically Yorkshire phrase to boot.

There was a great line in the Top Gear Polar Special which I suppose passed most of your countrymen by.

Jerermy Clarkson said to James May during their drive to the North Pole that they were currently the most Northern people in the world. More Northern (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_English) than even Michael Parkinson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Parkinson).

That wouldn't have meant much to me had I seen the episode. But I would have looked the name up to figure out the reference; which, after checking your links, makes that a damn funny joke!

Do you realise that the way you are talking is referred to as pitjabber?
I suppose from Yorkshire miners.

Lancashire Miners talk in a similar way, as do lots of owd Lanky folk.

From the justice.gov website
Former Chief Technology Officer of San Jose Video Arcade Gaming Software Company Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Commit Mail and Wire Fraud, Conspiracy to Commit Bank Fraud (http://www.justice.gov/usao/can/news/2012/2012_01_09_foley.guiltyplea.press.html)

Wow. I had a feeling it was David Foley. The part of it that really makes it creepy and weird for me is that I used to have the Ultracade homepage as my start page on my personal computer at that time and at one point it said that they were hiring and I responded because I was looking for a job. Lo and behold he is the one who would respond to my request and that he would be the one receiving my resume and what all else.
But on a good note, I remember playing that thing like crazy wherever it appeared. So I guess I played illegal copies of the games that were loaded on it. I do also remember reading or hearing something that some or perhaps all of the games running on it were illegal. I think it was the Taito and Namco/Bally Midway games running on it. Then again, I am not surprised.
So I guess he owes someone all those quarters I spent on it.
