So, after I spend $30 on two hotdogs, one soda, and one bag of peanuts, I find out my seats come with a complimentary buffet with nachos, hamburgers, piles of candy, bins of soda.  Can't win them all.

Here two teenage girls wrestle a helpless animal for my amusement.  In exchange for his loss of dignity, the beast will be rewarded with hay on his inevitable journey to the abattoir.

Yeah somebody has to explain the rodeo to me one day.  Even if you are really good at it, you just managed to outsmart a cow... one of the stupidest mammals on the planet.  Myself I don't play with my food.

Not so sure about that one.  I wasn't at all familiar with her walking into it, but left impressed. (Obviously I recognized several of her songs as they were played)

Get people aware of and children excited about agricultural endeavors.  Tons of scholarships handed out, etc.

My wife has received thousands of dollars from them and it has been a lifesaver.  Funding genotyping this semester.

So, yeah, I get it and can laugh at some of the absurdity but hey.

I just had to fix the shifter switch.  It works perfect now.

Today I went back to the rodeo and saw The Chainsmokers.

They don't sing, dance, or play instruments.  They pretend to turn dials, listen to headphones, and say, "let me hear you Houston! 1 2 3 4!"  The light show was cool, and I was surrounded by top shelf ---Bad words, bad words, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when saint censors you?--- dancing to it.  Which was nice.

My wife played their EP on the drive home.  It was actually pretty good.  Why wasn't their no name female vocalist there?

Yep. Same here. Although it's going to be "for sale" at ZapCon, I ain't gonna try too hard to sell it.

But I gotta tell you, that sombitch is HEAVY.

I'm gonna make some fan supports tomorrow and add a fan. Someone already did the power mods, so the fans will help keep things cool. I modeled the support in Illustrator and will plasma cut it.

In other news, I got my second Pokemon Go Plus - first one went to my wife. 

Fun fact about this device, you don't own Pokemon Go Plus, Pokemon Go Plus owns you.  My desk is in range of a Pokestop.  Bzz... Bzzz.... Bzz...

I'm surprised you are still playing it.  Actually I don't think I ever started.  Installed it on my phone but it was glitching out and never bothered to fix it.

It has introduced us to several area parks and increased my step average, so no hate here.  The creator is a Texan and did an interview in Texas Monthly where he said the entire point of the game was to get you outside and visiting local points of interest.  If that sounds appealing to you, you will enjoy it.  Otherwise, nah.

Just finished my first professional arcade repair job. Local Barcade has a TMNT with a bad power switch. I came out and swapped it for them, 10 minutes later and twenty bucks richer.

Which place, Cobra?  I was actually impressed by that place.  It feels like a neighborhood arcade that happens to have a bar instead of the other way around.

A couple of my buddies came over last night. Their wives wanted to have a girl's night out. My friends brought their kids out and everyone had a blast in my mini arcade. All 4 dedicated cabs and my MAME cab got heavy use. The kids got a kick out of seeing their names on my hi score leaderboard.
    I want to thank this community for making nights like this possible. You guys gave me the drive to build my own cab and to pick up dedicated games. :cheers:

Yep, that's what this hobby is all about. For me, it's the craftsmanship, the  camaraderie and the joy it brings people when they come into my game room.

Made some good money today diagnosing two non-working cabs and actually resurrecting a Pole Position that the local Barcade wanted me to look at. Just earning that ZapCon money.
