THE BITS OF YESTERDAY will offer you a glimpse into the paradigm of retro video game collecting: the mindset of those collectors and show that their ambition and passion still lives on in their hearts. Whether it be for nostalgia or curiosity reasons , the days of analog are still going strong today even amongst the horrors of this strange world in which we live. Game collecting has harnessed what was and what is and the adventures in the film demonstrate that.

ColorDMD is an LCD display designed to replace the traditional orange dot matrix displays (DMDs) used in pinball machines. Round dots are drawn to the LCD to emulate the original dots.

Michelle and John Costa of Pearland, Texas own and operate Drop-A-Coin Repair which specializes in restoring pinball machines, arcade games and jukeboxes. Their motto: “We don’t fix the problem, we repair the machine”. Pinball, arcades, jukeboxes, signs, and more decorate their entire home. John jokes, “You can always identify a crazy collector by how many machines he/she has in their kitchen”. Costa kitchen: 4 pinballs, 1 jukebox, 10 signs, and a wall of pinball playfields – “crazy collectors,” borderline. The Costa family has been a staple at the H.A.A.G. show contributing in showcasing some of their fantastic machines – games the public rarely gets to see, much less, ever gets to play. Collecting is only part of the equation through our company Drop-A-Coin Repair we have brought hundreds of machines (pinball, jukeboxes etc.) back to life ensuring enjoyment for future generations of gamers. John and Michelle conclude that the easiest way to propagate this hobby is by sharing their individual experiences whether through repair tips, stories of great finds, or just all around high score bragging rights. “We are a community and the Costa family is proud to be a part of it”.

“Radio Cult: The worst band you’ll ever love! These guys and gal don’t simply play music, they have the most fun possible doing it! And YOU are invited to join in! Seriously, do you play guitar, bass, or drums? Do you sing? Let them know and they’ll probably let you sit in with them at their next show! Even if you don’t know any of their original music, the band plays hundreds of cover songs too (mostly from the 70s, 80s, and 90s). They treat every show with the seriousness of a high-school house party when someone’s parents are out of town. They’re just as goofy in real life as they appear to be in their music videos, comic book stories, and Saturday morning cartoon. After recording five albums and playing well over 1000 shows together at dozens of conventions, casinos, parties, events and festivals as well as hundreds of bars, concert halls and other music venues across the country and throughout Europe, you’d think they’d have gotten better. Nope. They’re still the same fun-loving fools that they’ve always been, with silly smiles on their faces as they sing about cats and monsters and stuff…and we love them for it!”
