I talked to Author John Desjarlais last week in Chicago at the 2017 Catholic marketing Network Event about his upcoming Mystery Novel tentatively titled A Drift of Swine

His Author Page at Amazon is here and it’s loaded One example below

as usual I include the audio only part of his interview for those who found the background noise distracting.

You will see a lot of videos on my Youtube Channel from the 2017 Catholic Marketing Network Show but I wasn’t the only person shooting video. EWTN and Doug Keck were there

This was from the Morning of Day two after this entry the rest of my videos will be going up pretty much sequentially. I was lucky to catch him before he started his interviews for the day. I suspect you will find a lot of his interviews from the event popping up here over the course of time.

Due to the sheer volume of interviews and my desire to give each author, artist, singer and vendor their due it’s going to take a while to get all the blog posts up (in fact the videos will take a ton of time just to get them to youtube) so expect me to add one or two posts a day once I get back from Chicago to try to get all this work done.


This blog is a venture in capitalism and as you might guess we draw a tad less traffic than EWTN which is a slight disadvantage when you depend primarily on readers to pay yourself and your writers.

Here are the last Pintastic 2017 Videos and interviews from the show.

I talked to Jessie who was at her first Pintastic

and watched her play a little Wizard of Oz

I talked to Sean who was waiting to play Dialed In

I played a little of the new Star Wars Pinball (only got to play it once)

And that ended the Pintastic Interview on Saturday. On Sunday morning I shot (what I thought) was the last Pintastic interview again with Gabriel D’Annunzio the man who made it all possible at the cost of being flat out taking care of things

If you enjoyed Pintastic he is the man you need to thank the most.

I was getting ready to leave and join my wife and other son at a breakfast/lunch Buffet down the road when internet sensation Todd Tuckey’s partner in crime Frank joined me for an interview filmed by my son, we were shortly joined by Todd Tuckey himself.

That video I shot for Todd that we’re talking about is not up at TNT Amusements yet, I’ll post it once he has it up.  I was wearing two hats and scarfs btw because we were leaving and I had not packed a hatbox.

My full playlist for Pintastic is embedded below

As you can see there was a lot of work along with the play at Pintastic 2017.

I’ll likely have one more pintastic post related to a topic I’ve dealt with before but we now return to our normal blogging, at least until next week when I’ll be at the Catholic Media event in Chicago and I shoot a whole bunch of new interviews to post

Like Blogging and Quilting etc the Pinball world has its giants and we interviewed several of them at Pintastic NE

Let’s start with the designers like Barry Oursler who was a featured speaker. He is a soft spoken man who approached me because of my Doctor Who scarf and told me he designed a house for his cats based on the TARDIS, that was easy for him as he had designed the Doctor Who pinball machine along with many other favorite over his long career. He was kind enough to wait for my son and I to get a game in before sitting for an interview

Mr. Oursler seems quite humbled with all the attention he is getting these days over his work.

Next let me introduce you to David Thiel whose sound work and composition you have heard a lot of if you’ve been anywhere near a pinball machine.

At this point my camera battery finally gave up it’s ghost so we moved to the emergency backup camera

His description of what he does really emphasizes that what he does is in fact art.

He also spoke at the event here is a very brief clip

The real stars of the show of course are the games and the games that brought the most attention were those by , you guessed it Jersey Jack of Jersey Jack Pinball.

His great game DialedIn based on a cellphone is worth a few videos

and here is the legendary Selfie mode

Dialed in is the first totally original product as opposed to the Hobbit which was the star of last year

and a source of success for me this year

I’m sure that score didn’t rule the whole day

But to me my favorite of his games will always be Wizard of Oz

But no matter how cool or well made a machine is, sooner or later it will need some work and that’s where TNT Amusements and Internet Sensation Todd Tuckey comes in. He connected to an interview and for the only time at the event I was on camera with him.

As he said his talk went two hours. Every seat was taken and I had to sit in the far back which is why these two video clips of his “pre-talk” talk

have such poor sound

and he makes a great point that a lot of the machines he works on are 20 or 30 years old or more, machines that David Thiel may have done the sound and Barry Oursler might have designed when we were much younger, yet thanks to Todd and his crew people continue to enjoy them.

Perhaps in a decade he will be fixing Jersey Jack’s machines as well.

So all of these folks should take a bow, because guys like them make this hobby possible.

When you think of American Success stories in Hamilton Missouri it’s quite natural for the first thoughts in your minds to be either JC Penny who was born here, or Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt company who we wrote about here.

But at the very end of the street, just beyond the last quilt shop, there is a very small building. It doesn’t look like much and only sits about 20 people but it’s an American success story all the same.

This is Hank and Tank’s barbeque and you should know about it.

DaWife DaYoungestSon and I stopped there in the midst of her Missouri Star Quilt experience to have some lunch. Tank took our order and gave me a few minutes of his time.

I recorded this interview after we ordered but before we got our food. Believe me it was worth the wait.

Yes the scarf comes off when eating DaRibs

The Ribs I had were the best ribs I’d ever tasted and it wasn’t even close, they were not served sauced but sauce was provided i we wanted but I found that the ribs were so good that I didn’t want to dilute the flavor the slighted bit (this was in contrast to the pork and pickle at the airport whose ribs which needed bbq sauce to give them flavor). My wife who had the Brisket said it was “melt in your mouth tender” and not only did my son love his pulled pork sandwich but while he never cared for ribs absolutely loved the ones I shared with him as did DaWife, both of who gave me a taste of their food as well.

I spoke to both to Tank’s father and Tank as we ate, he starts preparing his meat for the smoker at 4:30 AM and prepares his mix of hickory and cherry wood before feeding the smokers at 5:30 AM. He was very humble concerning his praise of his food still very much the man who told his family when the idea of opening a restaurant was presented to him “Who’s going to pay money for my barbecue”” even as he sells 800lbs of meat a day on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday that they are open. He was constantly in and out with his brother and son Hank serving the customers who came from all over the world for the jewel of the crown of the quilting world and discovered another gem right beside them.

Without a doubt the food here is spectacular and if you are anywhere near Hamilton Missouri it’s worth coming down for some of the Best BBQ you will ever eat, but what I love most about this story is how American it is. Think about it, a family deciding they have to get their hard-working father and husband out of a corrections job that was killing him, going all in to make their tiny restaurant a success and being rewarded not with glowing reviews from all over who have eaten their food, but more importantly with the improved health of the person they love, which is what they really wanted above all else.

That’s the quintessential American success story.

I don’t know if they’ll eventually decide to open a fourth day or a fifth, or expand into a bigger restaurant and I can’t tell you if you will someday see a Hank and Tank’s chain serving great food all over the country, but that doesn’t matter because that’s not the measure of what success is. If they simply remain a family able to support themselves by working hard and providing customers with great food three days a week that makes it no less an example of the American Dream that Tank’s great grandfather came from Sicily to pursue.

It’s almost better than Christmas morning for these ladies

Donna from Indiana

Hamilton MO

Hamilton Missouri is a small town of just over 1800 people, there is a lot of farming and grazing land in the area and until just a few years ago it’s primary claim to fame was being the birthplace of that American success story JC Penny.

Not anymore.

Now buses arrive at the down on a semi regular basis and travelers from all over the nation and the world converge on this little town and not to see where Mr. Penny grew up.

No these people are quilters, women (and a few men) who are crafters of beautiful things and Hamilton

Missouri is their Mecca because of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  Here is an excerpt from a report from KSHB from 2013 whose video didn’t want to embed .

They come from Oklahoma, Kansas and far-flung locales beyond. One visitor traveled here all the way from Israel, just to meet the woman who has become a YouTube sensation for the hobby she has turned into a multi-million dollar family business.

That woman is Jenny Doan, matriarch of the Doan family, who launched the Missouri Star Quilting company in 2008 with a quilting machine, and a tumbledown brick building in Hamilton’s one-stoplight downtown.

“It’s bizarre,” says Doan of her YouTube fame. Doan teaches quilting classes in short web videos, and in person, for those who trek to her store to shop, and to meet the woman one described as the “Oprah” of quilting.

Their Youtube channel is here and if I had the traffic they had I likely would not be working my night job.

Friday I wrote about some of the husbands who brought their wives to the land of fabric, here’s ours:

Thursday after seeing the Red Sox relievers give away their final game to the Royals and rejoicing that the management of our hotel in KC got the AC fixed and made it a point to be waiting for us after the game to confirm it and apologize for the problems in person the day before, my wife, who works a 2nd shift job and is historically NOT an early riser was not only up early but urging our youngest son and I along so with the goal of getting to the place she had dreamed of seeing ever since she took up quilting a few years ago as soon as possible. I dashed through my piece on the Georgia 6th special election getting it up at 9:13 and less than 10 minutes later we were on the road with a quick stop at a local WalMart to buy a battery operated camera as I had neglected to bring my charger, for the pictures she would be taking.

It took about an hours drive to get there, there was nothing extraordinary about the highway or the country around it, nor the simple left turn off of Route 36 down S Hughes street to South Davis Street. The country was farm and grazing land, beautiful country, with a few places to stop and eat dotted along the way but my wife’s anticipation grew by the mile and when we took that final left turn from South Davis Street to and when we took that final left to West School Street and the first building came in sight her excitement was boiling over.

We drove down that street and saw quilt shops to the right and the left of us finally deciding to park at the final shop and work her way to the main location.

When we walked into the first shop it was evident that this was estrogen heaven, a dozen immensely happy women were inside and my wife immediately made it a baker’s dozen. My son and I noticed a fellow sitting near the door and sat with him for a bit.

He was the retired Steelworker from Pittsburgh who had driven 12 1/2 hours to bring his wife here and his story of her anticipation at every mile they got closer mimicked mine, interrupted only by his wife coming over and asking for a few dollars for the purchases at this shop.

Eventually my son and I found the Man’s spot which we’ve already discussed. We sat back, played some pool and eventually I grabbed the laptop and starting surfing, on twitter the fact that I was at Missouri Star got the attention of several of my readers who were anxious for me to get an in. I had not planned on doing any interviews or work during this trip, I had not even packed my monopod, but when DaWife stopped by with camera it was clear there was a story here worth telling so after doing a quick intro video and lunch at a tiny BBQ place called Hank’s and Tanks (which deserves its own post and will get it on Monday or Tuesday) I headed to the main building to see if I could get an interview with someone at the company.

I talked to a nice lady behind the counter to tried to find someone available but within a few minutes a pair of busses arrived and as with any business the customers have to come first, so I sat down and watched the ladies come in.

They were happy, but not just happy, you could literally feel the joy and excitement as each one came into the door and found themselves at the place they had dreamed of. Their ages ran from the mid 30’s to the seventies and there was one lady, clearly old and infirm who might have been in her eighties, but no amount of age or infirmity could restrain the sheer unadulterated pleasure written on their faces and emanating from their hearts.

As the people at work were far too overwhelmed to even think about me, I started to approach the women inside to see if any would be interviewed on camera. Donna from Indiana who was in charge of the bus trip was kind enough to give me some time.

It’s never an easy job to get a lady to consent to an on camera interview with a strange man in a hat wearing a 18 foot scarf on a 90 degree day and it’s doubly difficult when said interview tears them even for a few moment away from the place they’ve been dreaming about for years.  I was turned down quite a bit but a pair of ladies from the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints one from Oregon and one from Utah gave me a few minutes

At this point there was a tutorial being given by a lady named Cindy so there was no prospect of getting anyone so I headed back to the main building and found myself tweeting back and forth with Al Doan one of the founders of the business but unfortunately he was not in the area. Around this time my wife had finished shopping so we headed back to the main building where Cindy had finished with her tutorial and had been given the OK to give a few minutes to the odd fellow in the hat:

It was pretty late in the afternoon when we loaded up the rental with the fabric that my wife bought and got ready to leave the glow of being there still upon her.

There are a lot of things to say about the Missouri Star Quilt Company: that It’s the fulfilment of the dream of Jenny Doan, that it revitalized a small town in Missouri, that in less than a decade it has become the largest employer in Caldwell County Missouri, that the Missouri Star Quilt Company in general and Jenny Doan in particular are, like JC Penny, an American success story. All of these things are true, special and worthy of praise.

But for my money the greatest thing about the Missouri Star Quilt Company is the happiness they bring to thousands of women who come there each month and the tens of thousands who watch their tutorials online and the satisfaction that I and all the other husbands get when they see the sheer joy on the faces of the women they love.

My wife’s photos follow:

I got into the Supershuttle to the airport which was running a tad early and found that Cynthia was taking the same shuttle sitting next to me. In the front seat was a blogger/reporter from NYC named Traci Belmonte (@politidiva) who had also covered CPAC and she consented to an interview

You can find her writing here and here

Once at the airport I noticed Charles Krauthammer checking in near me, he declined an interview so I headed to the gate, got through security at my normal slow pace and then proceeded to my gate when I saw a young man with a socialism sucks T-shirt and told him an ironic joke about it. That led to my final interview of CPAC 2017

His Huffington post story was my last bit of News from CPAC. If you want to know the Socialism Sucks riddle/joke, I’m afraid you’ll have to watch the video.

DaTechGuy at CPAC 2017 (all Youtube videos are here). While this was my last cpac interview post I have two more posts to go on the event, one a photo post with assorted images and the other my final evaluation of the data I collected concerning President Trump and conservative activists at CPAC

What should have been my final CPAC Interview took place in my hotel room Sunday morning as I did a last go around with my room mates for the event, Emile the photographer, Robert Stacy McCain and Cynthia Yockey

Sometimes at CPAC you have to catch people on the Run like I did with Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe

His project Veritas is one of the last bastions of actual journalism being done these days. A second great example comes from one of the last interviews I did at CPAC 2016 before the final midnight court was with Lee Stranahan

Lee is one of the great reporters, if he writes it you can take it to the bank

Some Quick pre-cpac video and thoughts

2016 Fabulous 50 Blog Awards

There is plenty more from CPAC coming over the next couple of weeks, but what is also going to be coming are a lot of hospital bills and debt from work that both my wife and I are going to be missing because of the complications from her “routine” surgery.

If you are able and inclined to help mitigate them I’d ask you to consider hitting DaTipJar

I spoke to former Reagan Admin member & CPAC vet Donna Keene at CPAC 2017

I must admit I even if I wasn’t tired and distracted by news from home I still wouldn’t have known she was the wife of former CPAC pres David Keene

However Mr. Keene was kind enough to join me for an interview and was joined by Kayne Robinson also of the NRA

His book is here

DaTechGuy at CPAC 2017 (all videos not blogged about yet here). If your interview hasn’t been blogged yet I promise I will get to you
