Witness Trailer Tom and Ffej Knar in a 4th of July celebration like no other, in other words, pinpin style.

Trailer Tom and surf sled Ffej Knar set up a williams FLASH pinball machine in hopes of getting into Mike Mahaffey’s Pinball Topper Hall of Fame Album.

2 smoke bombs and a Zombie Apocalypse fountain firework were blasting away while Trailer Tom played the pinball machine and Ffej knave jammed out on his snowboard guitar.

Sparks were flying as the bonus multiplier and spinner shots were racking up the points as Trailer was on the card table prop up perfectly dialed machine.

Stephara Greenhagen used a modified super self stick to film an overhead angle of the event.

When Jason was at the table
I kept on seeing him look at me while he was with that other girl
Do you think he was just doing that to make me jealous?
Because he was totally texting me like all night last night
and I don’t know if it’s a booty call or not
Sooo… like what do you think?
Did-Did you think that girl was pretty?
How did that girl even get in here?
Did you see her?
She’s so short and that dress is so tacky
Who wears cheetah?
It’s not even summer, why does the DJ keep on playing Summertime Sadness?
After we go to the bathroom, can we go smoke a cigarette?
I really need one
But first, LET ME TAKE A SELFIE
Can you guys help me pick a filter?
I don’t know if I should go with XX Pro or Valencia
I wanna look tan
What should my caption be?
I want to be clever
How about “Livin’ with my bitches, Hashtag LIVE”
I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes
Do you think I should take it down?
LET ME TAKE ANOTHER SELFIE
Wait, pause, Jason just liked my selfie
What a creep
Is that guy sleeping over there?
Yeah, the one next to the girl with no shoes on
That’s so ratchet..
That girl is such a fake model
She definitely bought all her Instagram followers
Who goes out on Mondays?
OK, let’s go take some shots
Oh no (uh), I feel like I’m gonna throw up
Oh wait, nevermind I’m fine
Let’s go dance
There’s no vodka at this table
Do you know anyone else here?
Oh my god, Jason just texted me
Should I go home with him?
I GUESS I TOOK A GOOD SELFIE
(selfie repeating build)
LET ME TAKE A SELFIE LET ME TAKE A SELFIE

‪http://www.pinpinfilms.com/‬

On 5-30-2015 Trailer Tom and Ffej Knar use cutting edge innovation of the SELFIE STICK GRANDE and Loveland pass.

FFej and Trailer get extreme with snow-scooters, skate-scooters and snowboards.

“You need a self stick long enough to capture all the action” says Trailer Tom a snowboarder that loves to ride snowboards film shred and pinball adventures.

A selfie stick is a monopod used to take selfie photographs by positioning a smartphone or camera beyond the normal range of the arm. The selfie-stick phenomenon, which got its start in Asia, has landed on American shores, and made it’s way to Loveland pass Colorado.

If you have ever tried taking a selfie, then you know it’s not as easy as it looks, especially if you want to avoid a random am in-shot. Those instagram users make it look so simple!

Star Wars Snowboarding : Ffej Solo : Leia Bird : Luke Trailer

http://www.pinpinfilms.com/

Ffej Knar as “Ffej Solo”, Mariko Bird as “Leia Bird”, and Trailer Tom as “Luke Trailer” star in this Star Wars Theme snowboard video.

I got the call from Ffej about 10:00 am that a 3rd driver was needed for snowboard laps at loveland pass. I said ” yeah, I will go,”

I met Ffej and Mariko in Silverthorne and we agreed upon a Star Wars theme snowboard day.

I had a han solo, luke skywalker, and darth vader costume, and Mariko went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and got some Hot Buns and a white Bath Robe to play the part of Princess Leia.

We took a couple warm up runs, with my wookie go pole (go pro on a stick), and then it was time to test the new drone that Trailer Tom got for his birthday to film some snowboarding.

Ffej Solo hiked up to drop a cornice as Leia Bird and Luke Trailer used the drone to fly up and get some pigeon eye view footage.

Ffej Solo had the idea to ride the gully and pretend it was the infamous trench to blow up the death star. Luke Trailer is chased by Darth Vader down the trench.

Liea Bird slings a lazier blaster while she is snowboarding in the powder, just before she says “I love you” to Ffej Solo who replies “I know”

May The Force be With You

Trailer Tom Shreds Lake Powell on his $22 plastic snowboard from Target

Trailer Tom Shreds Lake Powell on his $22 plastic snowboard from Target. Video of this drop posted as a link in the comment on this photo.

When it come to these “snowboards” from Target, you certainly get what you pay for. That’ s right. They are made of plastic, it’s fantastic. Still, I had a great time with this thing at Lake Powell.

Summer Vacation long weekend with Justin, Erin, and my Dad.

Last winter, Ffej Knar and I bought the very best snowboards money can buy, at Target. On a scale of 1-10 on snowboard quality, with zero begin total BS trailer park trash junk, to 10 being the very best of the best, we give these boards a .09
The boards cost $22 each, but, lucky for us, they were on sale for 10% off.

Had a blast doing lots of jumps of the top of the house boat, some cliff and rock jumps and jibs.

I attempted to wakeboard with the mini snowboard, but I failed.

Searchers unearth grave of “PinPin 3″ the VHS snowboard and Pinball Movie

DCIM104GOPRO

Searchers unearth grave of “PinPin 3″ the VHS snowboard and Pinball Movie from PinPin Films.

Film director and edit Ffej Knar shows some of the near” fif-teen-hunnert” PinPIn 3 VHS tapes that were retrieved from a dig site at the Rick Stetta Ranch Estates At Farmers Korner Trailer Park.

Urban legend had it that when PinPin films buried the un-sold VHS tapes nearly a decade ago in a small trailer park near Breckenridge Colorado.

At the time of the original release of the film entitled “PinPin 3 Return of the Stedi” many folks still owned a divide called the VCR (video cassette recorder) that allowed them to watch movies on VHS tapes (Video Home System). DVD players were only for the “rich”. The PinPin 3 film was released on VHS as well as DVD and the DVDs sold out, but the VHS taped did not.

About 23 trailer park residents and snowboard and pinball film enthusiasts gathered early Saturday in the Rocky Mountain Trailer Park to watch backhoes and bull dozers and excavators and archeologists dig through the trash covered trailer lot in search of the discarded copies of PinPin 3.

Trailer Tom a spokesman for PinPin Films said ” Nobody here has any idea why the tapes were buried. Trailer said
“The PinPin Films Company has no corporate knowledge about the trailer park burial.

Ffej Knar an employee of PinPin films, and head of the archeological dig to recover the tapes said” The tapes were wrapped in zip-lock bags and were buried deep enough to survive the harsh Colorado winters and were preserved to near mint condition.”

A trailer park resident that wished to remain unanimous, said” I have very fond memories of watching that movie over and over again. I wore out my VHS copy of the film years ago, and I hope that PinPin Films decides to sell these recently discovered VHS copies”

Another trailer park resident refused to comment.

The Temporary Relief Assistant Trailer Park Supervisor known as “The Turnch Master” and 3rd generation trailer park resident said: ” The myth of the Buried VHS Tapes was still in question among fans of the film and the stories have been handed down for years. It was originally thought that the tapes were thrown out of the park with some other trailer trash during a sunday morning trash truck filming session.”

During the Big moment Ffej proclaimed “We found it” as his avalanche shovel hit what was highly anticipated to be the legendary VHS burial site.

Dates announced for 6th Annual PinPin Plunge off Anti Drain Fest Pinball Tournament Las Vegas PHoF

Wednesday March 25th, 2015

Vegas Pinball Tournament Flyer 6

This years tournament will take place on a Wednesday.

6th Annual PinPin Plunge off Anti Drain Fest Pinball Tournament-

Come one, come all (open men and women tournament) ….

Prizes:First place – 70% payout of the prize pot (based on number of entries but at very least $100) plus trophy.
Second place – 20% payout plus trophy.
Third place – 10% payout plus trophy.

What : Pinball Tournament

When/Date: Wednesday March 25th, 2015

What Time: Register at 11:am, Tournament Starts at 1:00pm (but registration will close at Noon) on Wednesday March 25th. It will end when the tourney is over.
:)

Registration and Practice:
On-Site Registration will only be until noon the day of the tournament. (between 11am and noon) Practice is not mandatory. Tournament directors need to have time to create the double elimination brackets

Where: Pinball Hall of Fame
1610 E. Tropicana
Las Vegas NV 89119

Entry Fee: $20.00 Plus cost of games played** 20 bucks gets you a $10.00 roll of quarters, and a “PinPin” Pinball film DVD upon arrival at the tournament. *(DVD’s while supplies last)
**(Players pay out of their own pocket for every game they play in the tournament. )

Format: Double Elimination.

Games: All Pinball Games at Pinball Hall of Fame can be used in the tournament. You can select nearly any machine in the hall, but, it must be a PINBALL machine that can keep score. See this link for a list of games:
http://www.pinballmuseum.org/

How it works: At first, players are randomly matched up for one-on-one rounds, by drawing names out of a hat. Each round is best 2 out of 3.

Then…..
Each round will begin with a coin flip. Ultimately the coin flip will most likely result in what player will pick “A and what player will pick “B”. The winner of the coin flip will have first choice of A,B, or C; Loser gets second leftover choice of A or B.

A= what machine will be played,
B= order of play (going first or second),
C=pass your choice to the other person. (to have your opponent make first choice)

There is a ONE MINUTE time limit on making your selection of game.

The LOSER of each game played during the best 2 out of 3 round, gets first choice of again, A,B, or C. The WINNER of each game played during the best 2 out of 3 round gets second leftover choice of again A or B.

Throughout the tournament players can not pick the same machine twice, and players have to pick an open machine to play. Example: If Tom chooses to play Attack From Mars, Tom can not CHOOSE Attack From Mars for the remainder of the tournament. Tom could end up playing Attack From Mars later in the tournament if Toms opponent were to choose Attack From Mars. As you complete each round, report the winner or loser to the tournament director (no need to report the score of each game) as well as the games that were selected by each player.

Extra Balls: Will be plunged and not played. No flipping, before or after ball is plunged. You can line up a skill shot with the plunger, but no flipping before ball is launched.

Only 3 balls per game will be scored: Some of the pinball machines have 5 balls per play. To speed up the pace of the tournament, only 3 balls out of the 5 balls will be scored to determine the winner of the match. (some older games have 5 balls, some of the new Sterns at the Pinball Hall of Fame are set to 5 balls)

Final Round: During the final round the winner of the losers bracket will play the winner of the winners bracket. The winner of the losers bracket must beat the winner of the winners bracket TWICE (must win 2 whole ROUNDS) to win 1st place in the tournament.

In this format, even if you loose every time you step up to a machine you will at very least get to play 4 “turns” in the tournament.

Other:

During tournament play for purposes of Player Conduct, Machine Malfunction, Stuck Balls, Errors, or Rulings, all final decisions will be made on a case by case basis by Tournament director and host Trailer Tom (Tom Miller).
We must respect the pinball machines at the PHOF. If you get super ago and punch or kick a machine or other player you will be disqualified from the tournament immediately.
In the event that the tournament can not be completed by the time the PHoF closes on Saturday, the tournament will spill over into sunday march 23rd.

Example of tournament play:
Ffej and Tom are matched for a one-on-one round. Ffej Flips a coin, Tom calls Tails. It is Tails. Tom wins the coin flip.

Game One: Tom gets first choice and chooses to play on Attack From Mars. Ffej gets choice of order of play and Ffej chooses to go second. Tom is player one and Ffej is Player two on a 2 player game on AFM. After ball 3, Ffej has a higher score than Tom on AFM.

Game Two: Tom gets first choice, and chooses to play Adams Family. Ffej gets choice of order of play and again Ffej chooses to go second on AF. Tom is player one and Ffej is Player two on a 2 player game on AF. After ball 3, Tom has a higher score than FFej on AF.

Game Three: Ffej gets first choice, and chooses to play Star Wars. Tom gets choice of order of play and chooses to go second on SW. Ffej is player one and Tom is Player two on a 2 player game on SW. After ball 3, Ffej has a higher score than Tom on SW.
Ffej wins the Round. Tom Loses the Round. Ffej advances to the next round, Tom gets bumped to the loser’s bracket if its Toms first loss, or is eliminated form the tournament if its Tom’s second loss.

On Site Methods of payment:
1) Cash- Will be accepted during on-site registration and is our only available method of payment.

Any Questions please contact
Tom Miller “Trailer Tom”
email: trailertom@hotmail.com
http://www.facebook.com/trailertom

P.S. Tournament Rule notes/updates for this year are as follows….

The limitation of games to 3 balls (5 ball games will only be scored to end of ball 3) is still in effect.

No kind of “have to pick an EM Electro-Mechanical” rule

There is now a ONE MINUTE time limit on making your selection of game. Must play an open game (no waiting for your favorite machine)

In the unlikely event that the tournament can not be completed by the time the PHoF closes on Wednesday, the tournament will spill over into the next day, or possibly continue at the PHoF 2 at the Riviera casino night of the 25th.

Slam tilt will most likey result in the player that committed the slam tilt to lose and the player that did not slam tilt to win unless an obvious machine malfunction occurred.

Games may not work 100% so if a game becomes unplayable during at match, a new game may have to be selected.

Who can enter: Female Competitors ONLY. An open men and women’s tournament will be held on Saturday March 22nd 2014.

Where: Pinball Hall of Fame
1610 E. Tropicana
Las Vegas NV 89119

Entry Fee: $40.00 Plus cost of games played** 40 bucks gets you into the tournament, and some “PinPin” Pinball film DVD’s upon arrival at the tournament while supplies last.

**(Players pay out of their own pocket for every game they play in the tournament. )
Format: Double Elimination.
Games: All Pinball Games at Pinball Hall of Fame can be used in the tournament. Must be a pinball machine that is able to keep score See this link for a list of games:
pinballmuseum.org/

How it works: To begin the tournament, players are randomly matched up for one-on-one rounds, by drawing names out of a hat. Each round is best 2 out of 3.
Each round will begin with a coin flip. Ultimately the coin flip will result in what player will pick “A and what player will pick “B”. The winner of the coin flip will have first choice of A,B, or C; Loser gets second leftover choice of A or B.
A= what machine will be played,
B= order of play (going first or second),
C=pass your choice to the other person. (to have your opponent make first choice)

The LOSER of each game played during the best 2 out of 3 round, gets first choice of again, A,B, or C. The WINNER of each game played during the best 2 out of 3 round gets second leftover choice of again A or B.

Throughout the tournament players can not pick the same machine twice, and players have to pick an open machine to play. Example: If Tom chooses to play Attack From Mars, Tom can not CHOOSE Attack From Mars for the remainder of the tournament. Tom could end up playing Attack From Mars later in the tournament if Toms opponent were to choose Attack From Mars.

Extra Balls: Will be plunged and not played. No flipping, before or after ball is plunged. You can line up a skill shot with the plunger, but no flipping before ball is launched.

Only 3 balls per game will be scored: Some of the pinball machines have 5 balls per play. To speed up the pace of the tournament, only 3 balls out of the 5 balls will be scored to determine the winner of the match. (some older games have 5 balls, some of the new Sterns at the Pinball Hall of Fame are set to 5 balls)

Final Round: During the final round the winner of the losers bracket will play the winner of the winners bracket. The winner of the losers bracket must beat the winner of the winners bracket TWICE (must win 2 whole ROUNDS) to win 1st place in the tournament.

In this format, even if you loose every time you step up to a machine you will at very least get to play 4 times in the tournament.

During tournament play for purposes of Player Conduct, Machine Malfunction, Stuck Balls, Errors, or Rulings, all final decisions will be made on a case by case basis by Tournament director and host Trailer Tom

December 12th, 2013

When it come to these “snowboards” from Target, you certainly get what you pay for. That’ s right. They are made of plastic, it’s fantastic.

Ladies and gentleman, today, I (trailer tom), (gotta do my name in parentheses for Mateo Leyba) made history once again with THE Ffej Knar….

Ffej Knar and I bought the very best snowboards money can buy, at Target. On a scale of 1-10 on snowboard quality, with zero begin total BS trailer park trash junk, to 10 being the very best of the best, I give these boards a .09

The boards cost $22 each, but, lucky for us, they were on sale for 10% off.

Our mission. To ride these POS plastic shred devices down Loveland Pass. Top to bottom Loveland pass run would surely put if in the record books!

The day we chose for this monumental journey was December 12th, because, December 12th just happens to be my birthday. woo hoooooooo!

So there we were. bottom of the main valley run at Loveland Pass. We parked my truck, got out our new Traget Specials, and stuck out our thumbs. Hitchhiking to the top with nothing but our new trailer park quality snowboards with their equally trailer bindings, would force us to ride all the way back to the bottom of the pass where my truck was parked.

Some guy was kind enough to pick us up and allow us to film him as he drove us up to the top for the jackpot. He became interested in what we were doing after we briefed him on our historic quest. He was on his way to Keystone resort but had to take time out to watch us push the limits of what our new boards could do. He stopped at the top to witness our awesome skills.

Ffej gave his new board the ol’ camber flex test at the Loveland Pass elevation sign near parking spots at the top of the pass. On a scale of 1-10 on flexibity, with 1 being a wet noodle, and 10 being a clear coated diamond plated steal laced oak plank, I give these boards a 0.99

The hardest part for me was just getting my boots into the bindings. The bindings are completely worthless plastic straps that kind of snap together. The snaps do not work very well for snowboard boots as the boots are a bot too bulky. Skate shoes seem to work better for these boards.

My heels and toes would drag in the snow as the boards are pretty small (110cm) and not very wide. Ffej really had some serious toe and heel drag.

The boards did ok, as in, a person can almost perform a heel side and toe side turn for minimal steering and stopping contol where the snow was hard packed or powder was less than an inch or 2 deep. As soon as you get these things in the pow, forget about it like Tony Soprano.

Ffej quickly learned that, in the softer deeper snow, it helped to jam your front foot into the front binding and put your back foot on the back of the board.

We actually rode the boards about half way down the run, documenting our shredding with various vidjya cameras and still cameras. About half way down we decided that we had had enough, and cheated the rest of the way down the hill by sitting on the boards and using them like a sled, or simply walking with the boards under our arms.

After we made it back to my truck at the bottom of the run, we each took a victory lap on our regular, real snowboards and enjoyed some nice deep pow turns.

After we enjoyed some nice birthday snowboarding runs, it was off to the Broncos vs. Chargers game. After the Broncos game, we met up with Todd Trisch at the Ameristar Casio in Blackhawk. Ffej hit 24 on the roulette table 3 times!! Three times in less than 12 hours FFS!

Until next time. Keep flipping and high scoring.
