Update: Now with 100% more Monkey Island! Star Wars, bagpipes, unicycle

Hey All,

Loooong time listener (remember the scumm bar's b&w wap page?), first time caller. I'm hoping I can gain some mojo support here. I'm currently a finalist in Neatorama's GTFO summer talent contest here:

http://www.neatorama.com/2010/07/21/gtfo-finalists/

and I'm currently losing to a girl who rotates her arms (seriously?!). Did people not see that I was playing Star Wars on the bagpipes while riding a unicycle in a kilt? Anyway, if I win, I'll work on the MI theme for next time!

Regards,
Brian

We salute you, sir.

I would have voted for you just for mentioning SCUMM Bar WAP, but the video was amazing too!

What happened to the link? It's down now.

Last I looked squidkidd's entry was going up, but still some way behind rotating arms women. Which is a shame, because that video (whilst interesting) wasn't really a talent.

Hey Guys,

Thank you for all the help in this! Sadly I came in second place in the end. Behind arm rotating girl. Tis' a true shame, but definitely no fault of your own. I was making a serious comeback at the time voting stopped. They started changing the url up towards the end as a way to try and stop it from just becoming a who has more internet friends contest (which is how arm rotating girl won to begin with). You can read how it all turned out here:

http://www.neatorama.com/2010/07/27/gtfo-winners/

sounds like they wanted me to win at least

Anyway, I may not have won, but making the news at mojo is close enough for me, so in keeping with my word I give you: Monkey Island! on Unicycle, Bagpipes, and Trumpet!

I read this thread too late to be able to vote, so I'm sorry about that. But that video with the Monkey Island theme is awesome! The MI2 beach theme on the bagpipes is so amazingly cool!

The MI beach tune lends itself really well for the bagpipes, I must say.

Good show! Especially liked the bit with Bart & Fink's theme. Works surprisingly well on the bagpipes, to the point where I at first thought it was a classic melody.

Killer, mad props, and all that.
