View Full Version : Holy smokes!

Ahoy all,
I had no idea there were so many other fans of Monkey Island out there. Whenever I mention Monkey Island (or work a snide Guybrush quote into the conversation), folks look at me like I'm some sort of raving madman. Oh sure, you say, maybe I am a raving madman, but not because of my love for the Monkey Island series.
I would like to add that it took me a week to figure out how to drop the bucket of mud on Largo's head in Monkey 2 (I'm a tad on the slow side, it would seem...) and I often times call my car "The Jolly Rasta."
Thank you in advance for taking me to your bosum. Unless of course you choose to reject me, in which case I will destroy you all and eat yo...uh...am I still typing? I'm sorry. I'm a rage-oholic. I'm addicted to rage-ohol.
PS So this post won't be a total waste of bandwidth, I'll ask a question: Who thinks Guybrush would've been better off forgetting Elaine and going after Carla the Swordmaster? Va va va voom!

LoL, imagine Carla and Elaine in a cat fight! Va Va Voom

btw, is it just me or is there a whole crap load of nOObs coming in!?

Welcome to the board! There’s a whole world of Monkey Island fan-goodness out there. Sample the great fan music (http://imuse.mixnmojo.com/fan.shtml)! Feast your eyes on the fantastic fan art (http://brimstone.scummbar.com/fanwork/art/index.php)! Be part of a massive online LucasArts community (http://www.mixnmojo.com/php/site/community.php)! You might also want to try IRC (http://www.scummbar.com/community/irc/), for some real time chat in #monkey-island.

Also: I thought Britney and the Harbor Mistress were getting a wee bit too comfortable with Guybrush in EMI… could this be the start of a shocking affair? Maybe TWO shocking affairs? ;)

Thanks for the link to the Fan Music section. That stuff is amazing! I think it's cool how many forms the tributes to Monkey Island have taken. Forgive me for gushing; this is a new frontier for me. I'm sure I'll become jaded and cynical like everyone else someday. ;)

Please don't become as 'cynical and jaded' as the rest of us, it hurts our feelings.

And don't forget the incredible fanfiction (http://lucasfic.mixnmojo.com), which Gabez inexplicably forgot to mention!

Yes, and also the great articles (http://www.scummbar.com/resources/articles/read.php?in=9)!

Yikes, and I nearly forgot the groovy fan games (http://www.fangames.co.uk/games/monkey.php) and all the special stuff (http://www.adventuredevelopers.com) about them!

Well, this is a new forum...and the people who used to old forum decided to register on Lucasforums for some inexplicably bizarre reason.

This could be a case for Mulder and Scully.
