So, I know that this might not be the most logical way to start off a pinball blog post, but I LOVE Feiyue shoes. You can get a pair of the black or white classics on Amazon for 15 bucks. Just do it. They are unbelievably comfortable and super classy. I was explaining the history behind the brand and why I love them so much to a friend today and she had NO IDEA what I was talking about, so I went home and punched up the website so I could send her the link. When I loaded the page, THIS was staring me in the face:
You gotta be kidding me! There's no way that any of my interests this far flung should ever be in the same orbit! The same SOLAR SYSTEM! Let's be clear, I DO NOT care about fashion. This is the only, and I mean THE ONLY, thing about fashion that I care about. So go figure, the ONLY thing fashion related that I'm into is also related to pinball. THIS IS A SIGN FROM THE UNIVERSE! I must be doing SOMETHING right!
From what I can tell, this is the 4th time that they've held this pinball mini-tournament. The only pins included are two modified Gottlieb Street Fighter II machines. One has been re-themed as an astronaut game called Flying Forward (which is also the motto of the brand). The other has been re-themed as a horror game called Attack of the Werewolf (the backglass has an awesome throwback to Haunted House!)
I'm hard-pressed to find out more info about the machines or the event since everything I've found is in French : ( From what I've seen, though, the machines look SUPER SLICK, and it looks like a TON of people attend these events. I can't get over how cool this is! Can more of my interests start intersecting with pinball?!? Biking + pinball? Comics + pinbal... oh wait! That's what we're doing!
