Drain Talk: Competitive Pinball in Norway ..and beer tasting

Hi!
If this is not fitting here, then feel free to remove it, no hard feelings :slight_smile:
Being the IFPA country director for Norway, a very dedicated tournament player and being part of organizing frequent tournaments in Oslo, Norway, I feel this has abit relevance to competitive pinball.

Episode 1 of my new pinball show, Drain Talk, is finally up:

The battle part of the episode,best-of-3 on Kiss: https://youtu.be/pnqZ08_Rkx4

It ended up being alot more work and effort than i intended because I got all these creative ticks and anxiety for it not being “good enough”, but I am very happy how it turned out.

So! I had this idea in 2017 to make a video show following the competitive pinball in Norway, even made a test recording, but due to life and challenges it just drained away. But for every big pinball and also life event, I felt bad for not already having established a monthly show as a kindof historic document. Now, at last, I thought “fuck it, lets do this” and spent the last three weeks planning,recording and editing, and here we are. For me its also important to focus on sharing good times with friends, and thats why I also have beer tasting as part of the episode. Trying to find beers which are out of the ordinary :slight_smile:

When covid is under control and the IFPA system opens up, I am super excited to follow the norwegian pinball scene, tournaments and rankings on a montly basis, but until then I will fill the episodes with conversation about pinball and beer with players in norway and our pinball club in Oslo.

So if nothing else, I hope to add an insight into Norwegian Pinball,for those few interested :slight_smile: And Ill see you guys in Florida 2025,when we can finally have the IFPA World Championships :sweat_smile: :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob:

Cheers!
