Thank you Cait.

This video is a great example which displays how little most of us know about the amusement and vending industry in other regions of the world. I admit to being very North American based in my knowledge of coin-op like many of you, yet there is quite a bit of history and divesity when you take a closer look around the globe. Nuts I tell ya, just nuts.

Maxed out at 10 machines, no more no less. Toujours a 10 machines, pas moins pas plus.

A philosophy of doing shall rule until the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman friend from sighing, there will only be memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build that RRSP of memories in order to joyfully cushion the last stages of life.

I always preferred the exceptional qualities quietly lurking beneath any normal state of affairs. But now, our day to day has been elevated into the realm of the extraordinary via a world wide web of self-promotion fueled by the new dumb. Adding to our new reality is a saturation of information rendering our ability to think and then react in order to follow through with real action even more unlikely.

I've done a lot of research on Japanese coin-op and have lately been digging a lot of European coin-op. But dang I can't say I recommend getting in to it because shipping stuff across the ocean is ridiculous, and finding stuff from other continents in North America is like a needle in a haystack.
but oh man, I have quite the wishlist of machines from across Europe!
