LucasArts Wish List – Geek Goodies
This won’t be the last time I say this, but I love point and click games. Playing Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade when I was a small kid shaped my life in many ways. And to this day a lot of LucasArts adventures are still some of my favourites!
So, for this article I racked my brain about what items I could feature here. I don’t really shop online (most of my money goes towards ebooks or food) but I thought I could pick some items inspired by the games I loved growing up. Unfortunately there aren’t any leather jackets like the one Indy wears!
When I saw this t-shirt on Qwertee I knew I had to get it, because I love Monkey Island. To this day this is one of my favourite t-shirts, partly because of the cool label design but also because the fact that it isn’t a black t-shirt confuses my mother.
It’s still available on the Qwertee store, it’s a bit more expensive than the daily tees but it’s still worth it.
Manny Calavera Necklace
Manny Calavera is the protagonist of Grim Fandango. A couple of years ago I was watching a video by my favourite YouYuber (Pushinguproses) and I noticed that she was wearing this necklace.
After some internet sleuthing I reached the website of Maya Pixelskaya, who made this necklace and more LucasArts inspired coolness. In an example of how small the world is, turns out she’s a friend of a friend (if you read this, hi Santiago!).
I still haven’t bought this, but one day I will.
A RUBBER CHICKEN WITH A PULLEY IN THE MIDDLE
Well, not quite.
I figured that since you can find anything on the internet, that there might be someone making rubber chickens with pulleys in the middle.
I looked everywhere for them, because you never know when you might need a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle.
Didn’t find any. Only found this cool pin.
There’s an alarming lack of chicken rubbers with pulleys in the middle, someone should do something.
