To celebrate 50 years of Pong being released Mike & Neil are going WAY back into the annals of video game history to talk about some legacy collections on the GameCube. Starting with Pinball Hall of Fame which is yup, a collection of pinball tables played virtually. We bring on friend of the show Luigi to discuss Pinball and the Midway Arcade Treasures series and discover how interconnected Pinball, Bally, Williams, Atari, and Midway all were in the 1980s. Next up is the Namco Museum series featuring friend of the show Christian to dive back into his memories of these games. Finally Jedi Geek Girl joins us once again, this time to talk about Gauntlet Dark Legacy, a very unique game on the GameCube that is of course set within the arcade classic Gauntlet series. All this and more on episode 121 of The GameCube Was Cool! And of course you can check out some GameCube Was Cool Podcast merch here at https://www.teepublic.com/stores/neil-gilbert?ref_id=26916

Imagine your favorite local bar gathered its funniest, sexiest, strangest, and most talented patrons and friends, and brought them together to put on a wild variety show and you've got a reasonable idea of what you'd experience when you see Miss Behave's Mavericks. So back in spring, there was some buzz starting to grow about a new show downtown, Miss Behave's Mavericks. Vital Vegas had reported on it. (I have to say here that I often appreciate Vital Vegas's perspective and info - and I know he's a friend of the podcast - but he seems to have a love of all things downtown that I don't necessarily share.) But the buzz kept growing, and it really piqued my curiosity. I knew about the previous Miss Behave show - which was at Bally's - but only by name. I also am not afraid to admit that I'm kind of a value shopper when it comes to Vegas. I'm always looking for the deals and the bang-for-your-buck. So when I found out that's tickets were $25 each, I was sold. By the way, they've since gone up to $39 per person, but this is still a hell of a deal. You'd be hard-pressed to find another show in town at that price. A little more on cost later. Cheapshot in Fremont East is a whole mood. Miss Behave's Mavericks is playing at Cheapshot, which is in the first block of Fremont East, in the space formerly occupied by Beauty Bar. We saw this show in July, and of course it was super hot outside. Seating is first come first serve, so we wanted to get there early to get good seats. Now this was probably our least enjoyable part of the experience. It's Vegas. It's July. It's hot outside. We arrived at 6 for a 7:00 curtain time. The website said the doors opened at 6, so we're thinking this shouldn't be a problem. But there's a fence and a closed gate in front of the doors, and they aren't letting anyone in. I was thinking that maybe they were doing this to make the show seem better, because whatever was inside was better than standing out on the street and melting. The show could have just been watching aardvark's shitting and it would have been great as long as there was air conditioning. Honestly, the venue staff did their best to try to make up for it. Miss Behave herself (the stage name of performer and host Amy Saunders) came out and apologized and handed out cold water bottles. She explained that the doors didn't actually open until 6:30, and she had requested several times for the info online to be changed, but it hadn't been changed yet. Keep in mind that when we arrived, there were 2 groups of people in front of us, and before they finally let us in quite the line had developed behind us. Since seating is first come, first serve, I recommend you still arrive about an hour before showtime, even if the doors open only 30 minutes prior. Just have a cold drink in hand, and maybe choose your show time carefully. I'm just grateful that the venue is on the south side of the street, so we had some shade. Look, I'll be honest: I have no idea what's happening here. A few words about seating… As I've already mentioned, the venue is first come, first serve. When it was our turn to be seated, they asked if we wanted to be more towards the front or more towards the back. I said “more towards the front” and they put us right smack in the front row. I wasn't expecting this, but was fine with it. If I didn't want to be so close, like some people might, I'm sure they would have moved us if I requested it. The chairs were small cane-back chairs that had no cushions, so it was a little uncomfortable. Lacking a better option, I ended up setting my drink on the stage. Speaking of the stage, like the venue, it's very cozy. There's only room for maybe a dozen people in the front row. Everyone is in the same style of seating, and our chairs are on the floor in the bar - there's no slope like theater seating has - so it might get more difficult to see the further back you are. Thankfully, it's such a small venue that I don't think this is an issue. One other point about the venue, my wife wants me to point out that the restrooms were nice and big and very clean. Drink service at the venue is excellent. They have a decent-sized menu (available online) of standard cocktails (old fashioned, sex on the beach, margarita), beers, and wines. Drink prices are reasonable for Vegas. Here's where another cost comes in. You should bring cash to the show - about $20 or so per person - in order to show your support for the performers. See, Miss Behave's Mavericks likes the audience to support performers “strip club style” by throwing bills on the stage. It's a fun gimmick that is very Vegas-appropriate. Even if you've just got a crisp $20 bill in hand, they'll make change for you before the show. Okay, so let's talk about the show itself. Miss Behave's Mavericks is a variety show. It's a very eclectic variety show. It's sometimes thrilling, sometimes soulful, sometimes sexy, somewhat confusing and very hilarious. I like to think of it as “Absinthe Lite.” This means that the show I saw is not the show you're going to see, but let's face it: that's not the worst gamble you've taken in this town. We saw a gender-bending strip act that brought the “confusing boner” phrase back to mind. We saw a little person on roller skates do a deliberately terrible dance number to “Total Eclipse of the Heart” that had me in tears from laughing so hard. You might see hula-hooping chicken. Who the fuck knows? Miss Behave herself is the emcee, and she's excellent. She's quick to explain the money throwing thing, that pictures are okay and social media is encouraged, and she's very clear that everyone is there to have a great time. I'm not sure that I can articulate this without sounding hokey, but for what it's worth, we truly felt that they wanted to be gracious hosts and as welcoming as possible. Oh and she also swallows swords. That was nuts to see from the front row. Trice B Phantom brings the soul Singer Trice B Phantom is a frequent performer, and he sang an amazing rendition of “What's Going On,” that I felt unworthy to witness. The icing on the cake for us was burlesque performer “Banbury Cross” who closed out the show with the best burlesque striptease I have ever seen, and I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur. Unfortunately for all of you, she was only there for a limited two week run. This is how Miss Behave's Mavericks operates. Some performers are regulars, some are in town for limited shows, and some, such as Tape Face, might even be from other local shows and just popping in for a show or two. Like Forrest Gump and his box of chocolates, you never know… From a risk/reward standpoint, even if you don't like the version of the show you end up seeing, you're out the cost of a low-priced ticket, maybe an in-expensive drink or two, and you're a half block from FSE. For us, when the show was over we wanted to stay. Cheapshot converts into either a club or a piano bar after the show depending on the night, and we really just wanted to stay, drink, and party with the performers. Unfortunately, we had reservations back on the strip. We've already talked about seeing Miss Behave's Mavericks again, and making sure that we don't plan anything after the show. Something I'll be including in reviews is what I call the “A.F.F.” or Audience Fuckery Factor. Some people hate to be singled out or involved in the slightest, and it's important to point out when you might accidentally be drawn into the show… There was one person a few seats from me who helped the little person with this “Total Eclipse of the Heart” number, but I think this can be expected when you're in the front row. There's a few performances that started away from the stage near the front door, and they worked their way through the crowd towards the stage. Miss Behave herself does some of her emcee work by standing on the bar, probably in an attempt to draw eyes away from the stage while they switch out equipment or set pieces. Anyway, if I haven't made it clear, this show is an ever-changing thing. Even if no one in my audience was messed with, it doesn't mean no one in your audience will be messed with. I think you'll have a blast either way. Better start figuring out how to sell the wife on this now The wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Miss Behave's Mavericks. It is easily in my top 3 Vegas entertainment experiences, and number 1 in terms of value. Something that is important to note: I learned as I was finishing up this review that the show is going into hiatus after Thanksgiving. If you know anything about entertainment in Vegas, you know that “hiatus” can often be code for “closing at this venue, but we won't say ‘closing' to give the show a chance to find another space.” I sincerely hope that is not the case here, because this show is an absolute gem and deserves all the life it can get. If you're going to be in Vegas between now and Thanksgiving I encourage you to check the show out, so there's no question that Miss Behave's Mavericks returns in spring, which is when they say we can see it again after the holidays. Tickets are available directly at the venue's website which is at cheapshotdtlv.com. At the time of this review, shows are Thursdays at 7, Fridays at 8, and two shows on Saturdays at 8 and 10:30.

While Bally's is a very recognizable name in the casino industry, it's current iteration is relatively new and has a much loftier goal that previous versions. Soo Kim bought the brand from Caesars when he was running Twin Rivers, a relatively small casino company based in Rhode Island. Kim has set a path to Bally's becoming a true omnichannel gaming company that excels in online gaming, sports betting, land-based gaming and sports entertainment. Kim says it's been more difficult and has taken more time than he originally estimated, but believes his company is on the right path. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at G2E in Las Vegas in October.
This week we welcome Penny Gilley! For Penny Gilley, it's all about the fans. Whether she's singing on a stage in Las Vegas, a packed auditorium in South Dakota, or in front of thousands of GIs in Kuwait, Penny treats her audiences like a second family. Maybe that's part of growing up in a place like West Monroe, Louisiana, where her first audience were neighbors sitting in the pews at Southside Assembly of God. Penny has kept her promise. She's renowned for staying late to meet fans, sign autographs or just sit and talk. Most nights, she's the last person to leave the theater. “When you give them your time, you are giving them a piece of your life, and they take it to heart,” she says. That's why she's got some of the most loyal fans in show business. Penny's roots are deep in Louisiana. She started singing professionally as a teenager in West Monroe, as the only female member of a gospel group known as “The Louisianans.” Her love of country music led her to perform at Opry shows all over the South including The Louisiana Hayride in Shreveport. That helped shape the kind of show she puts on today. Penny released several singles to radio, two of which went to #1 on the independent chart. Her popularity spread overseas with more #1s in Europe where her traditional sound led to performances at festivals in Germany, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Penny has worked with many country stars including her idols Barbara Mandrell and Loretta Lynn. She has performed throughout the country and around the world in venues from The Nugget, The Flamingo and Bally's in Las Vegas & Reno to casinos throughout the United States. But with all the glitz and glamour, Penny says that one of the blessings of her professional life has been the privilege of performing for soldiers overseas. After someone sent Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf a copy of her song about Desert Storm (“The Line Drawn In The Sand”) he invited Penny to headline at the homecoming for Desert Storm soldiers at Oceanside, Calif. in 1991. She performed for over 120,000 servicemen and women and their family and friends in the biggest military homecoming event ever held in the United States. Penny hosts her own weekly TV show "The Penny Gilley Show", recorded in Fort Worth, Texas on RFD-TV (DishNetwork 231, DirecTV 345, ATT-Uverse 1568, over 600 cable companies) on Fridays at 2:30 PM and 7:30 pm(Central Time.). Penny headlined in Branson for four years at the RFD-TV Theater and The Mansion Theater. Penny and her husband Mike now make their home in the Dallas area. For more information on Penny, visit her website: PennyGilley.com.
In episode #18 of the Bally Alley Astrocast podcast, the hosts, Chris and Adam, cover two games written in Bally BASIC called "Cross Country Racer" and "Star Wars" by Doug Shaeffer, an amateur Astrocade programmer. These games were archived, along with other programs, by Paul Thacker in February 2022 from an Astrocade collection bought on Ebay by Nate Reeder in January 2022. Paul says, "These seem to me to have been made for personal use rather than with a goal of publication, but there's still some cool stuff in here [...]." Also covered is one piece of feedback and some recent updates to the Bally Alley website."

Bally Alley Update (October 22, 2022) - "Max Performs Magic" - This an ad called "Max Performs Magic" about the Datamax UV-1R ZGRASS Graphics System. It is from page 16 of "Back Stage," December 3, 1982. Bally Alley Update (October 24, 2022) - The Bally Shrine - This is a three-page printout of "The Bally Shrine" Website from 1999. The Bally Shrine was a website run by Charles Taylor in the mid-to-late 1990s. Bally Alley Update (October 26, 2022) - Montgomery Ward - 1983 - Astrocade for $29.99 - This is a Montgomery Ward advertisement for a blow-out sale on many game systems, among them is the Astrocade for $29.99. This ad, from the bottom-right of page 6-A, is from the December 4, 1983 edition of "The Baytown Sun," a newspaper from Texas. "CHRDIS" Articles by Mike Skala - The three-part "CHRDIS" articles describe how to use the Bally Arcade's built-in Character Display routine from within Bally BASIC to create fast graphic displays. First published in the November and December 1982 and February 1983 Arcadian newsletter. Mike Skala says, "I've seen quite a bit of software lately utilizing the Graphic Character Maker, a machine code routine that Arcadian has published in the past year. This allowed us to use a display routine from the on-board ROM and put complex graphics on the screen instantly, rather than a slow series of BOX and LINE commands. The major drawback here was when moving the graphics, erasing and redrawing: it left us with considerable flashing or blinking. If you have been with us for a while, you know that we are continually evolving and improving; the following tutorial is our new generation of screen animation for the Astrocade!" "CHRDIS" Software by Mike Skala - This is the AstroBASIC software in archived format. Feedback There is some feedback covered in this episode, and we would love to hear your thoughts and comments about this (or any) Astrocast episode or about your history with the Bally Arcade/Astrocade. The best way to contact us is via email at BallyAlley or through via the Bally Alley Discussion Group at Groups.io. Next Episode's Coverage Perhaps "AstroBASIC" will get some coverage in Episode #19. It makes sense, since Astrocast #18 covered two BASIC games. Astrocast #17 was supposed to cover the material in the "AstroBASIC" manual and it was recorded, but it didn't turned out the way I had hoped that it would sound, so the "AstroBASIC" manual overview has been put off until I can cover it with a co-host like Chris, a BASIC programming ninja, or Paul, who has also programmed in BASIC. We will also cover "Outpost 19," an AstroBASIC game by WaveMakers that will fit naturally into an episode that shares its numbering with the game. We also may try to cover a game that was released on cartridge, but that coverage may be bounced to a future episode because "Outpost 19" may be the most involved game written in BASIC on the Astrocade.

How did a Dutch fashion stylist end up in the Milan and how does she mix her northern upbringing and style with the Italian? Ellen tells her story through her styling work around the world using color, fabric and texture to create luxurious yet cool stylings. She loves mystery which can clearly be seen through her work for Vogue Arabia. Ellen explains what intrigues her so much about fashion and how color fits into that world. Ellen Mirck is a Dutch Fashion Stylist and sustainable editor based in Milan. She does fashion styling, art direction and brand consultancy. She is contributing editor of Vogue Arabia and also collaborates with magazines such as Vogue Brazil, Lampoon, Numerò Netherlands, Tank and Cap74094. Her clients are Burberry, Max Mara, Hogan, Pomellato, Moncler, Ermenegildo Zegna, Fay, Tommy Hilfiger, Bvlgari, Converse, Benetton, Tod's, Bally, Palm Angels and many more.Ellen used to live in London and work for Alexander McQueen and Hermès. She studied Economy in the Netherlands and graduated Cum Laude in Fashion Styling at Marangoni Milan. In her work she instinctively pairs the clean, graphic lines from Northern Europe with the warmth and a certain dramatic flair found in the South. She finds the precious in the details with interesting, nature- inspired textures. As a Stylist and Art Director, she'd say she more of a storyteller, really getting into the mind of the client to translate their vision and vivid imagination that might be slumbering underneath the surface. Ellen enjoys clothes, the beauty of them, but also believes in wearing your values.Thank you for listening!

Bill Bender from the Sporting News was on at 6:33 to talk about the week in college football without the Buckeyes. The Jackets are still winless. The Browns are cursed.

BoF's editor-in-chief and editor-at-large walk through the highlights and unforgettable moments of fashion weeks in Milan and Paris. Background: Fashion's Spring/Summer 2023 season was jam-packed with debuts, returns and chatter-inducing moments. Alessandro Michele was inspired by his mother and identical twin sister for his “Twinsburg” Gucci presentation which featured 68 pairs of identical twins. Rick Owens drew a dress from a 700 million year-old jellyfish. Dior and Yves Saint Laurent crafted elaborate grotto and fountain backdrops for their collections, while Dries Van Noten staged his Paris comeback in lockstep with Japanese designers including Junya Watanabe, Noir Kei Ninomiya and Jun Takahashi for Undercover — BoF editor-at-large Tim Blanks' favourite of the season. “To me that felt like one of the best commentaries on the pandemic that we've had from fashion — of everything that's passed, everything that's lost, everything that's been lost,” said Blanks. “And then at the same time, the celebration with the fact that he's still there.” Key Insights: In Milan, four major houses — Ferragamo, Missoni, Etro and Bally — debuted the first collections from new designers, with hopes to replicate the success big names like Tom Ford and Alessando Michele have been able to create for Gucci, said Tim Blanks. For Balenciaga, Demna staged a mud-drenched show with battered and bruised, hoodie-clad models that provoked an intense emotional reaction from the crowd, while Nicolas Ghesquière showed an energetic and future-looking collection for Louis Vuitton. This fashion month, many catered to both in-person and online audiences to varying degrees of success. Valentino, for one, notably struggled with an element of the show just for cameras, another for people outside and an uber-long runway that saw a number of models take their shoes off. Fashion traditionally provides a sense of escape, said Blanks, but it's increasingly harder to turn away from the real world. Economies are deteriorating, Russia's assault on the Ukraine continues and the artist formerly known as Kanye West put a shirt emblazoned with “White Lives Matter,” a phrase deployed by hate groups, on the runway.

Amy Saunders's stage presence, Miss Behave, is more than an alter ego. Think more like “Amy times Amy,” — and if you've seen any of the Miss Behave shows, you know that Miss B is a brash, warm, comedic force, an androgynous drag queen in spectacular costumes, a master of audience interaction. Today, Dayvid talks with Amy (and Miss B) about the journey from London to Vegas via freak shows and the Festival Fringe, how aging Trump supporters helped hone the show at Bally's, and why performing off the Strip creates an entirely unique audience experience.

Introduction: If Patrick Reusse is buying into the Gophers and P.J. Fleck, perhaps more of us should as well. On today's show, host Michael Rand helps you get to know one of the key members of the defense: linebacker Mariano Sori-Marin. He was an Ivy League recruit before signing with the Gophers, and his intelligence plays a big role in his success. Sori-Marin has a fascinating family history tracing back to his family's Cuban roots, and he also has used his love of food to take team bonding to a new level. 16:00: Jason Gurwin from The Streamable joins Rand for the latest on how we watch sports. The rights to NFL Sunday Ticket are up after this season, and where that lands will be interesting. Plus Bally Sports Plus -- the standalone $20 a month app -- is set to launch Monday. Will fans, including supporters of the Wolves and Wild, go for it? And how does the shaky financial situation of Diamond Sports -- which operates all the Bally regional sports networks and is owned by parent company Sinclair -- factor into the future of how we will access our favorite teams? 30:00: The Twins are officially an afterthought, but the Wild are taking their place.

In any video arcade, especially during the proverbial Golden Age of the Seventies and Eighties, it wasn't always the games on screen that first caught the eye but the colourful, imposing, sometimes lurid cabinets that housed them. This was bona fide pop art for the coin-op kids of America and beyond. Paul Niemeyer started his career at developer Bally Midway during the early Eighties, working on such titles as Ms. Pac-Man, Tapper and Spy Hunter. He also had a hand in creating such impressive cabinets as Discs of Tron, Satan's Hollow and the peculiar Wacko. Niemeyer tells us about the precision art of cutting and layering art screens, life at Midway during the Bally takeover, working with the so-called Bally Pinball art gods, the development of the notorious and enduring Mortal Kombat and having his homework marked by Sylvester Stallone.
