California Slot Machine Casino Gambling in 2020 ...

Florida to San Jose California, 1964 Corvette, 1986 timeframe

Florida to San Jose in a 1964 Corvette. My buddy spent every penny he had buying it with nothing left over for a tune-up or fresh tires before we took off. (Mistake #1) He picked me up @ Hartsfield in Atlanta at 2 a.m, (long before cellphones....coordinating my late arrival was difficult) we ate at a Waffle House at 3 a.m. and off we went. It was to be all blue highways, back roads, 2-lanes, no interstates or national chain restaurants from that point forward.
A copy of “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” was to be our Bible.
We saw innumerable "See Rock City" signs and drove through the apparent fireworks capital of the free world @ the Georgia/TN border.
The damn Vette kept breaking down, first a clutch in Nashville, later a U-joint near Clarksville. Carb troubles in Nevada. I remember we saw “Weird Science” at the Clarksville theater, long before theaters were all 24-plexes. Afterwards at a bar we told a pair of local ladies we were “Location Agents” in town scouting sites for a film that was going to be shot there. Remember, this was pre-HIV... We were looking for a LAKE that the SUN came up over in the East.......\snicker, snicker**
What surprised us most were the full size satellite TV dishes behind every farmhouse across America. From nothing to 250+ channels with nothing but a check and a bootleg converter. Rural America had gotten wired. Well, dished. News, or what passed for it, was now broadcast 24 hours a day. (Mistake #2?)
Mosquitoes ate us alive at some state park in Arkansas where we’d foolishly chosen to camp rather than get a cheap motel room. We had a cassette walkman to pass the time before sleep came. The waitress at the one cafe in some lonely small town in Kansas assured us “Charlie,” the Frito Lay guy, came by EVERY DAY to refill the rack. We've joked about "Charlie" ever since.
We trailed a shiny stainless Kraft tanker truck across the loneliest highway in America, drafting for better fuel mileage, until he locked up the brakes and turned down a deserted dirt road. Trust me. There were no cows, and no dairies down that road. Must have been Area 51, or something else, cause a “milk truck” had no business being there. Fortunately we just missed creaming his rear bumper.
By this point we were getting around 7 mpg's belching black smoke , until a “19 year Chevy dealership mechanic” in a tiny town in the middle of east nowhere, Nevada, told us “No problem, one bowl on your Holley double pumper has sagged, I’ll file it flat and double gasket it and we were on our way again having barely finished lunch, back into, barely, double digit gas mileage. It was AS IF he had been placed there, just for us.
We camped among the stars in a mountaintop State Park near Eloy, Nevada, decided THIS was the place to hang out after nuclear war. You could see cars approaching from 50 miles away. Big cave, glacier full of icemelt pure water, deer everywhere. Survival city. The gubbmit was inexplicably stringing wire and fiber-optic cables into the cave. Maybe they had the same idea. A tiny casino with two slot machines and some serious alcoholics was Eloy's entertainment offering.
It seemed at every breakdown we ran into JUST the right person to fix the ‘64 for us, although the 10 pound metal glove box door continued slamming into my knees all the way to San Jose. @#[email protected]!!!!
Everywhere we went there was someone wanting to talk to us about the burnt orange, white-striped Vette. Either a parent had owned one, a neighbor or their friend had owned one, or a good friend / cousin had died crashing one. We heard, or shall I say endured, endless Vette stories. (As I do again today, it’s the price of admission).
A fourth and final flat occurred near Lake Tahoe. I was ready to pull my hair out at Dave's frugality. Stopping at endless gas stations looking for ANY used tire that would fit. We were running for home at that point, late on our schedule. I think we did the final 200 miles without a spare.
A fly fishing trip on the South Fork of the North something river outside Denver had been the hi-light of the trip, along with an impromptu color TV repair at the cabin. My buddy pulled a trout out on his first cast, having never fished before. "To catch a fish one must THINK like a fish" he had pontificated,..... and then proceeded to JUST DO IT. Rest of us were amazed. I got skunked by a noob!
A cold solder joint in an old TV was repaired with a nail, held in Vice-Grips, heated red hot over a stove burner. Instantly the football field was green once again. My companion impressed the shit out of me with that piece of wizardry.
Forty years ago and I remember it like it was yesterday. We ultimately had to do about 17 miles on an Interstate somewhere in Utah. No way around. There are no road trips to be had, no stories to be gained, blasting 80mph on a superslab and eating in chain restaurants. Never have been, never will be. 2-lanes, diners, cafe's, that's where you see and talk to America.
We learned to take the road less traveled and to take ALL the time needed with everyone who had a story to tell us. We didn't take nearly enough (film) pictures. Mistake #3.

MAME 0.218

MAME 0.218

It’s time for MAME 0.218, the first MAME release of 2020! We’ve added a couple of very interesting alternate versions of systems this month. One is a location test version of NMK’s GunNail, with different stage order, wider player shot patterns, a larger player hitbox, and lots of other differences from the final release. The other is The Last Apostle Puppetshow, an incredibly rare export version of Home Data’s Reikai Doushi. Also significant is a newer version Valadon Automation’s Super Bagman. There’s been enough progress made on Konami’s medal games for a number of them to be considered working, including Buttobi Striker, Dam Dam Boy, Korokoro Pensuke, Shuriken Boy and Yu-Gi-Oh Monster Capsule. Don’t expect too much in terms of gameplay though — they’re essentially gambling games for children.
There are several major computer emulation advances in this release, in completely different areas. Possibly most exciting is the ability to install and run Windows NT on the MIPS Magnum R4000 “Jazz” workstation, with working networking. With the assistance of Ash Wolf, MAME now emulates the Psion Series 5mx PDA. Psion’s EPOC32 operating system is the direct ancestor of the Symbian operating system, that powered a generation of smartphones. IDE and SCSI hard disk support for Acorn 8-bit systems has been added, the latter being one of the components of the BBC Domesday Project system. In PC emulation, Windows 3.1 is now usable with S3 ViRGE accelerated 2D video drivers. F.Ulivi has contributed microcode-level emulation of the iSBC-202 floppy controller for the Intel Intellec MDS-II system, adding 8" floppy disk support.
Of course there are plenty of other improvements and additions, including re-dumps of all the incorrectly dumped GameKing cartridges, disassemblers for PACE, WE32100 and “RipFire” 88000, better Geneve 9640 emulation, and plenty of working software list additions. You can get the source and 64-bit Windows binary packages from the download page (note that 32-bit Windows binaries and “zip-in-zip” source code are no longer supplied).

Gumby’s Old School Monday: Backstage at UFC 34

Believe it or not I was actually one of the first sponsors of the UFC in the Zuffa era, where we would give them banner ads on our website www.Onthemat.com and pump up their events. Believe it or not back in those days the UFC would set up a booth at local Vegas events such as Grappler’s Quest and Dana White would man it personally.
The sponsorship afforded me press passes and backstage access at the UFCs, although to be honest the main reason why I would go was to watch my good friend BJ Penn compete. This was back in the period before the Ultimate Fighter Reality show, and while there were some very good cards in this time, the UFC was not quite the billion dollar company it is today. In fact, everything felt more on a shoestring budget back then.
A good example of this was UFC 34: High Voltage. In retrospect there are a lot of reasons why it should be a legendary card. See for yourself the line up and look again at the 8 matches that seen ended in submission or KO and the lone decision was epic effort from a debuting Phil Baroni against Matt Lindland. http://www.sherdog.com/events/UFC-34-High-Voltage-540
Afterwards it definitely felt like we had witnessed something special, but there was also a feeling if anyone else in the world actually cared. I wandered back stage for the post fight press conference, which was more of a makeshift area in the back. There was a backdrop and a stage, but it was so small that aside from the podium the only people who could sit up there were the headliners (Randy Couture and Pedro Rizzo), but I think both were in the hospital anyway. The rest of the fighters were actually sitting on metal folding chairs along with the press, entirely made up of MMA media and websites, maybe about a dozen of us. I pretty much regarded my journalistic duties lightly and would up sitting next to and chopping it up with BJ. The fighters who attended were in a pretty jovial mood too and I don’t think Dana had much to say other than “Wow, that was pretty cool”.
Afterwards when everyone had dispersed I was still making the rounds with BJ when he notices that Phil Baroni was still sitting in the same chair he was in for the press conference, even though the stage and everyone else had long since cleared away. “Hey, Phil doesn’t look so good, we should check up on him, said BJ as we made our way over to him. Phil was just staring blankly at the floor, and he may or may not have been crying before we got there. It was actually Baroni’s first fight in the UFC and his fourth fight overall, and he got his shot largely by the online presence he had managed to build up for himself, particularly the trash talking he had done on the Underground MMA forum. Matt Lindland won that fight in extremely convincing fashion in a three round decision, but Baroni had nothing to be ashamed of, as he showed off a HUGE heart in the bout and just kept coming forward in spite of everything. As BJ offered him words of comfort and encouragement, the only thing that Baroni could say was “Man, I talked so much shit, I couldn’t give up!”
BJ Penn’s match went considerably better that night of course, in which he had knocked out Caol Uno in 11 seconds. I don’t think there was much festivities and fanfare the rest of that night (no official after party that I can recall), but the next morning I wound up meeting BJ and his brother at the MGM buffet.
Renting out a mansion? Suites? Room service? Back then Zuffa was cash strapped enough that fighter meals were provided by meal cards for the hotel. They were counted pretty carefully and while the fighters got a room at the venue they were fighting at (the MGM in this case), any additional rooms for trainers or entourage as it were was at the Station Casinos (which the Fertitta brothers own). Crazy to think that after a fight the fighters could be hanging out at the casino like anyone else and the vast majority of people were more concerned with the slot machines than the fact one of the headliners was standing next to them.
Actually, while we were standing in a line a lady did recognize BJ. She was little bit older white lady, with tight jeans and a sweatshirt, with dreadlocks and ribbons woven through it. I don’t like to use the word skanky to often, but she definitely had a whiff of skank about her. At any rate she was very complimentary towards BJ, who was just happy to have someone recognize him. BJ’s smile turned to something else as she leaned in closer and whispered to him (loud enough so the rest of us could hear) “and we when you were beating that little Japanese guy against the fence, I found myself getting so sexually turned on!” I’ve never seen BJ squirm so much in my life as the rest of us just roared with laughter and proceeded tease him mercilessly on it.
The weekend of fights was only half over, as John Lewis was debuting his promotion the World Fight Alliance at that Hard Rock. It was designed to be a much smaller venue, and the theme was “where the Fight Club meets the Night Club” but it had a really good card as well, headlined by Rich Franklin vs Marvin Eastman: http://www.sherdog.com/events/WFA-1-World-Fighting-Alliance-1-544
I sponsored this event to so I had press passes again but I wound up going with the Penn brothers. As it was a smaller venue and we had to deal with Hard Rock security I remember having to sneak one of them into the venue, and later on after the fights at the after party one of them may or may not have gotten thrown out. (I remember it vividly, I’m just not saying.) It was just as well however, because our bags were packed and we were taking the next flight out of Vegas anyway. (The Penn brothers still lived in California at the time so we had the same flight).
We made it to the airport for the red eye flight quite early and wound up hanging out at the airport. (Travel tip, always take the redeye out of Vegas on the day you plan to leave. You probably weren’t going to sleep that night anyway, you don’t have to deal with any crowds and it’s better to sleep off the hang over you’re sure to have in your own bed. Bonus you’ll be on the same flight with all of the strippers going home.) This is about a month after 9-11 so security was pretty tight (although TSA had yet to be established). We were trying to get through security and check everyone in (while in various states of inebriation) when we had one more obstacle: The Penn brothers all had identical names on their identification cards. Now it’s more common knowledge now that B.J. actually stands for “Baby Jay”, but on official documents their father and the three oldest sons are all named “Jay Dee Penn”. Why you ask? In case one of them died the name would still live on. I guess by Regan they figured the name was pretty safe. But when three of them try to present their ID’s to airport personnel at the same time and none of them are really capable of coherent sentences it made for some bewildered security who did not want to let them through the gates. Finally, I got up to try to explain the situation (since I was someone the most sober one) and when the lady kept repeating why do they all have the same name I finally just responded with “eh, it’s Hawaiian logic”, and she finally let us through on our way to home.
All right, as always I write these stories for my reasons exclusive to bjj and will continue to do so as long as their is an interest or until I run out of stories. Soon I’ll be writing on my own site www.OntheMat.com again so feel free to check that site out. We are sponsoring an online poker tournament soon where you can win a Lucky Gi and play against the likes of me, Scotty, Garry Tonon, Jeff Glover and more.
I’ll also plug my school in downtown San Jose www.HeroesMartialArts.com where I’m more likely to tell some stories that I wouldn’t dare commit to print (I like to think I’m a pretty good instructor as well and I definitely believe we have a good team).
