Last weekend I went to a travelling pinball art exibition hosted by a collector. I was surprised to see that many of the boards are very sexual. I talked to a few people there, including my father-in-law who was a pinball wizard of sorts and was playing when all of these games came out (especially the Bally's machines). Of course the obvious reasoning for putting up such lude boards is to get adolescent males to play.
There is an alright page with alot of this artwork here: Link. Note especially the art of Paul Farris. On a sidenote, the older pinball machines had warnings that they are not to be played by minors. Also these 1950's boards had women in some pretty interesting outfits (like an off the shoulder shirt for a woman up to bat in a baseball game), kinda cool.

The space porn pinball game reminded me of one of my favorites, Xenon. This game was one of the first to feature speech, and the first with female speech. "Enter Xenon!" "Try a tube shot!" "Oh!" "Oh!" "Oh!" Orgasm comes at multiball, of course. The picture to snag part of is this one, making sure to include the bare-breasted alien, the skintight spacesuits, and the infamous Tube Shot: Link.

Alex Wood is an addict but won’t give up his smartphone. But he has five strategies for limiting its control over him: “I used to wake up tired. My body would ache and my head felt sore, like waking up with a hangover. Finally, I took control, like attending an AA class for addicts, I […]
We just got the Sport model of the EPIKGO hoverboard at my office. Besides being terribly chic, it’s apparently bulletproof.
Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
