  1. Thanks Jake! after rereading the article about Mojos trip to Skywalker Ranch I am tempted to try to pick your brain for the maniac mansion episode I would love to just step foot in that library This definitely is something I'm learning as I go and I'm sure that shows a lot has changed in editing since I learned on avid suite in film school 2001ish ha so much to learn but it's a lot of fun
  2. Hi guys! As some of you who have me on Twitter know I have started a Twitch Channel where I have done playthroughs of Maniac Mansion Deluxe and Zak McKracken FM-Towns so far. I'm proud to say I have also launched my own Youtube Channel where you can currently see my MMD playthrough in digestible chunks, soon the Zak playthrough will be up as well. In addition to the streams I am planning to do a series of specials dedicated to the individual titles focusing on differences between versions, development factiods, etc. I also hope to reach out to our communit
  3. Just a quick shot of my condensed collection, many of the boxes hold multiple copies and various schwag. eventually ill make a more detailed post but considering a lot of that I got from a mixnmojo contest in the first place it wouldn't be much new. I still have the envelope and letter from Gabez its in one of the copies of the classic adventures bundle
  4. I love the New Logo, I was also joking at Craig Derrick about guybrush cameos in everything on Twitter and he replied jokingly that Guybrush could be like their Stan Lee or Deadpool:-) that would be awesome I also suggested legacy character costumes and skins for fallen order/bf2 because I have this weird want to see Bobbin or Zak McKracken try to star wars in my lifetime haha
  5. Lucasarts Museum shows it as a slipcover too Ive always wanted the triangle box but had no idea how flimsy it was. One day ill likely track one down but at least now i wont be surprised and disappointed when it shows... or this is a knock of or a reproduction at lower quality... now im of the mind that i may contact other collectors that have this that can confirm
  6. Fair in my original post on the Lucasarts Adventure Fans #monkey-island discord I did mention i found the original credits screenshot on Twitter (it was Facebook and it was Mark's Picture apperently )which prompted me and user altoid to look up the company. Your credit is properly placed and im a boob lol. Either way its super cool to know and I wouldn't be surprised if these important looking pirates were members here as well
  7. EDIT: I am more of a boob lol as Mark's screenshot is what I seen to promp me to look this up in the first place. Thoroughly egg faced This thread on Twitter even got tims attention. Yes Mark A Sandford from Facebook either you and I had the same late moment of discovery at the same time or you seen this post and shared glad it was a surprise for someone though
  8. And first let me say no I'm not hijacking to star wars lol, The VFX crew for the Mandalorian have a great name... Important Looking Pirates! And looking at their contact page on their website confirms the Monkey Island reference! I probably should have just searched as I'm sure you guys are fully aware of this lol EDIT: I am apperently an undereducated boob as apperently they have been involved with star wars for a while. Yay I got to learn something new today! lol
  9. I think you all touch on great points, cmi Elaine really didn't have many lines so when the accent came through in tomi and the remaster it definitely was jarring especially after emi where Elaine really had the most dialog she's ever had (save perhaps tomi but its hard to say)
  10. Hi all, not sure if anyone is aware but Elaine Marley's primary VO actress Alexandra Boyd has a YouTube channel. She only has about 139 subscribers so maybe people weren't aware. She also has a personal website that talks about what other work she has done as well.
  11. I actually spent a lot of yesterday on the wayback machine looking at mojos past and as many of the webring sites as they would muster. mostly i could just get at lists. I remember in like 1998 or so i had built a site in computer science that was called the monkey island catacombs that had a red theme and a midi of the catacombs theme that would autoplay, i think i submitted it to the webring but im not sure. i do know that my school wouldnt have hosted it for long, hell it may have been on a private network so it could have been impossible for the ring to see the submission i mad
  12. OMG, I am so glad the emoji i contributed survived the move to the new software such a big smile right now My nostalgia has led me to look back at old posts, i almost necro'd this old "Introduce Yourself" post of Gabez's to do an update. 12 years is such a long time it would be cool to do another post like that, or even just updates from those still around Im loving just pouring over all the great posts i missed during that time like ATMachines resurgence and article like posts like the secret project thread. Im just repeating myself at this point but i
  13. This is a point I tried to make over and over until I gave up shouting into their echo chamber. This absolutely is not censorship, no one forced it upon you, you excercized your perogative as the authors and it was your liscence to do so. I have this wonderful fantasy image in my head of a starchie spudnoggin blog post addressing this issue by posting a page out of surfing the highway but with the guns replaced with walkie talkiea just because its his work and he could if he so chooses, that is his right. Doing so does nothing to take away from the original art. I would totally buy
  14. I see lots mentioning various discords they are on like double fines (ill have to find that one). I have found a mojo one with a lot of the same names. Honestly I'm just getting into discord so I don't have much built up yet, I dig the irc vibes of it. Does anyone have any suggestions or invites to ones like minded mojoers should join? I realize there is an element of private to discord as opposed to irc hence the invite system is #monkey-island still kicking somewhere?
  15. I'm 38, have 5 young children and if I ever caught them acting this way online (little too young yet thankfully) i would seriously consider revoking some privileges until they learned to respect others opinions. Mind you this comes from someone who co-owns a tattoo shop and whose primary income is basically stabbing people for money. By definition im supposed to be all edgy and whatnot (I'm probably not but I'm supposed to be) and I would still never act like that. Now I see they have gone so far as to threaten people on Twitter that haven't refunded the game wtf I just woke up and seen that
