Manny Calavera - Grim Fandango
“Love? Love is for the living, Sal. I’m only after her for one reason… she’s my ticket out of here.”

“El Pollo Diablo, or the Giant Demon Chicken, is a mythical creature, said to have landed on Plunder Island, where he terrorizes the people. Tall as a man and twice as powerful, his massive drumsticks propel him through the dark jungle with ease. On the eve of the full moon, his blood-curdling squawk can be heard from every corner of Plunder Island. It is believed that one day, he will roam the island, exacting terrible vengeance on those who would capture and eat his smaller brethren” (Monkey Island wiki)
I want the neck!
Reacciones de los habitantes de Puerto Pollo ante la visión de El Pollo Diablo
“With boney hands I hold my partner,
On soulless feet we cross the floor,
The music stops as if to answer,
An empty knocking at the door,
It seems his skin was sweet as mango,
When last I held him to my breast,
But now we dance this grim fandango,
And will four years before we rest.”
Con manos huesudas tomo a mi pareja.
Nuestros desalmados pies cruzan el suelo.
La música se detiene, como si respondiera.
Un golpeteo vacío en la puerta.
Su piel parecía tan dulce como el mango.
Cuando por fin la estreché contra mi pecho.
Pero ahora bailamos este macabro fandango
y cuatro años habrán de pasar para poder descansar.

More nostalgia for some of you, this time in the form of the main theme from The Curse of Monkey Island. For those who don’t know, Monkey Island was a series of adventure games produced by Lucasarts starting in 1990. They follow the (mis)adventures of a young wannabee pirate named Guybrush Threepwood and his (sort of) valiant battles against the dreaded ghost pirate LeChuck. I cannot recommend the first three games highly enough to anybody with a passing interest in graphical adventure games as they are hilarious, highly quotable, and generally a ton of fun.
En lo más profundo del caribe… Monkey Island,
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
A woodchuck would chuck no amount of wood since a woodchuck can’t chuck wood.
But if a woodchuck could chuck and would chuck some amount of wood, what amount of wood would a woodchuck chuck?
Even if a woodchuck could chuck wood and even if a woodchuck would chuck wood, should a woodchuck chuck wood?
A woodchuck should chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood, as long as a woodchuck would chuck wood.
- Azules… Por algún motivo pensé que serían blancas
“Love is for the living, Sal.”
October is my favorite month, so I’m gonna use it to do art of some of my favorite Octobery things. Spooky, supernatural, or just a little morbid. The first week is devoted to video games, and today’s is a great game from the long ago. I actually still have the disks for this, even though I’m not sure I could get it working anymore.
Grim Fandango is one of the few things I might actually like to see remade… not because it needs any improving, only because it’s a great concept with limited accessibility if it turns out you’re not living in 1998.
(P.S. I’m on a trip this week, so some of these posts will be queued ahead of time, and some might end up being phone picture quality depending on when I get them done. I’ll try to replace any phone quality stuff with scans when I return.)
lo recomiendo a todo aquel que le guste una buena novela fantástica, o un buen guión de ciencia ficción
