- Manny: Don't you ever worry that your job is getting to you, Membrillo?
- Membrillo: Well, forensic Botany is a trying job, Manny, but have you ever spent much time here with a florist? In life, they became florists because they love flowers, but here, a flower is a symbol of pain, of death within death. Their conflicted feelings build and build, and eventually, they become quite mad.
- Manny: Thanks for the tip, I guess I'll send Balloon Bouquets from now on.
Manny: What’s so special about you?
Tube-switcher guy: I, sir, am an elemental spirit, summoned from the Land of the Dead itself…
Manny: Yeah, yeah, let me guess…you were given one purpose, one skill, one desire: fixing pneumatic tube switchers?
Tube-switcher guy: No, I was created to run the elevators, but they put in those dang motion detectors… …and put me outta work!
My roots lie not in any earthly nation’s soil. I am an elemental spirit, summoned up from the Land of the Dead itself, with one purpose, one skill, one desire : to DRIVE !!!

Someone who keeps a Tumblr specialized in LucasArts reblogged my last song, which was part of the 1995 adventure game Full Throttle soundtrack.
It gave me the idea of doing something I’ve never done before: post a song originally from a soundtrack.
So I’m posting this from the original soundtrack of my favourite game of all time: Grim Fandango, also from LucasArts.
Well, earlier I posted a song from Monkey Island, but it was more of a joke post than a serious one. It was Talk Like A Pirate day and not really a song part of the soundtrack.
So, enjoy it. One of the best game soundtracks in my opinion.
With bony 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.
- Olivia Ofrenda, Grim Fandango, LucasArts, 1998
