View Full Version : I found my sweater.

I left it in Double Fine. Duh, silly me.

I'd forgotten how much I loved Double Fine. I mean, I know they're awesome. They always will be. But like when you're going out with somebody for a very long time, and the electricity and the magic fade away... like when that happens, I started to take Double Fine for granted.

It was always there, always happy, always providing nail-biting and action packed news updates, always bringing a smile to my face.

Yesterday I remembered just how awesome Double Fine were. I was thinking perhaps you guys might have forgotten how important they are in your life, and how awesome and cool they are, and how much you love them.

Because let's face it, could you get any awesomer?

I've decided that no matter what happens, even if I lose all my fingers and toes, or if I lose my right hand and have to learn to draw with my left... no matter what, I'm taking my J1 visa and putting it to good use, come college. I'm gonna be an Intern in Double Fine. And if that doesn't work, I'm gonna sit outside their Secret Headquarters and whine and moan and cry. Or maybe try getting an internship somewhere else because it's all good. Just not as good.

Like in the end of Michael Collins when Joe says, "You know what he'd say if he saw you like this? He'd say, 'Get up off the parlimentary side of your ass and get a bit of colour in your face.'" And stands up, and she's crying and sniffing and she says, "But he would have said it better, Joe. Mick would have said it better."

EDIT: NOW, exclusively for polish fans, we have that last quote from the movie, Michael Collins, in Awesome Polish!!!

"Ruszaj swój parlamentarny tyłek|i bierz się za życie!
"Tylko że on by to lepiej powiedzia"

Coming soon: Indian Translation!

Double fine are not so fine, they're just adequate. Was it a sweaty sweater? Did Tim Schafer sniff it?

I don't actually know what colour the sweater is, because the thing is this: I don't remember ever actually losing one to begin with. But I must have, because there it is, in Double Fine.

After three dreamlike days, and three intensively sleepless nights, I have finished Grim Fandango. I would write down all my praises, list all the silly things I've done while under the influence of this intoxicatingly good game, and every other thing I can think of....but those things are meant for other eyes. Plus they probably sound too much like what Yuf has written on the topic before.


Wait, what was this topic for?

EDIT: No wait, I HAVE to tell you about one thing I did...after I played the game, I put on a little black velvet dress and heels, did my hair up, put on some lipstick in the shade Mommy doesn't like, and danced solo to "Manny and Meche." Looking back, it doesn't seem to bode well for my mental health. Pfft.

I'll have to make copies of the secret camera in your room's tape. People'll PAY for this.

Wait. :confused: This isn't E-bay?

Screw Michael Collins. Somebody should write a soundtrack for Tim Schafer.

At this point I'd like to take this quote, "The media has a tendency to attribute the creation of a game to a single person." from that Warren guy who made that game. Anyway, I think all the people at Double Fine are awesome, but since there's only one that I know of for certain, I'm gonna label the bunch of them collectively as "Tim Schafer."

Alia, get the Katana. We're going to Omaha.

Funny. Ernil and Burger BOTH do this funny sort of topic bumping with an off-beat word or two. How very funny. I wonder if respectable people think it's funny too?

...Yeah! Death to Omaha!

Well this topic is a welcome comeback. I really really want that goddamn sweater!!!
