Welcome Aububuh to the Mojo empire, it's always nice to see a new face (or avatar/nickname in this case).

If you are the kind of people (like me) that usually forgets usernames and passwords, then you should use Firefox, which reminds them for you, and also Xmarks, which backs up all that info online so that you don't lose it even if something bad happens to your computer.

Welcome Aububuh! You're right, it is a cool nickname!

Good to hear the LucasArts adventures are still getting fans after all these years. In many ways I envy you, getting to experience these games for the first time!

Hi everyone. It just occured to me that I haven't formerly introduced myself even though I've been coming to the forums for several years now.

My name is Joop, I'm 23 and I live in Holland.
I'm a voice actor, specializing in Dutch and English.
I've been playing Point Click Adventure Games since I was about 8 years old, which started with Day of the Tentacle at my nephews house.
Even though my main focus is on voice acting, I have been in a few plays and have even done some modelling!
I managed to get a diploma in Multimedia Design, after which I dropped out of Theatre School and Audio/Visual Production.
My hair is probably the shortest of you all since I got a really short haircut just yesterday.

I've done a couple of cartoons, some commercials, even a computer game. All still relatively small stuff though.
It's hard getting into the big animated features, so I'm trying to build a name for myself.
The market for dubbing is getting bigger and bigger in the Netherlands, so there still is a chance of me one day getting the voice of Guybrush Threepwood or something like that.

It is? Hmmm... where can I find said market? I've always wanted to try acting some voices, but I have no idea where or how to begin.

I thought I should present an update report on the facts presented in my introduction.
2010 UPDATE:
My hair is not that long anymore, and I have it cut with more regularity. I'm suspiciously losing hair, so I should have that checked by a specialist, my hair is probably the source of all my powers and I wouldn't want to lose that.

The Dig Museum remains un-updated (down-dated?), although 2010 sounds like a year in which something might occur to it, something good.
On the other hand the Thrillville site has become the Thrillville Quarterly and is very alive and I have many brilliant plans for it.

I still choose Pepsi over coke whenever I can choose, so that remains unchanged.

And as a side note: It is too damn hot on this hemisphere! I envy you, fancy Europeans with your frozen-cold winter. We are currently "enjoying" of 33 degrees Celsius (or 91.4 degrees Fahrenheit).

You should try making a demo reel. You can send it to various dubbing studios around Holland, most of them are located around Hilversum and Amsterdam.
It's hard getting in though, a lot of people think it's "just doing a voice", it's not, there's a lot more to it.
If you're really serious about it, there are also some courses you can take. You should just google them, they're bound to pop up.
Good luck!

The game was actually live action, like FMV.
It was a game made for a management school, called restaurant manager.
I had the lead in it. ^^

In other news, a commercial I recently voiced has won an award!
I'm so proud!

Hi! I'm 16 years old and I live in the Netherlands. About four years ago I discovered Day of the Tentacle and I loved it immediately. When I had finished it I played the Monkey Island games and after that all the other Lucas Arts adventure games. I'm a really big fan and I had been reading the Mixnmojo forums for quite a while before I signed up here.

My biggest hobby is playing guitar, I really love guitars. I now own five guitars which some people consider many, and others consider that a very small number :P

I'm from Haarlem! It's a really nice city!
It's quite far from Panningen though :P

@Jenni
Apart from my guitars I've got a mini sized ud too. That little thing doesn't sound too good though, but it looks cool.

Distance is only present in your mind.
It just limits us to look beyond the horizon.
And on another note, it's the Netherlands, you can travel from North to South in 3 hours.

Only 14 and you've worked out The Shawshank Redemption is the best film ever? Well done!

If you hadn't have said you were 14 I never would have guessed - if you'd have said 28 I wouldn't have batted an eyelid. Welcome to the site!

Hey, I'm Hayden and I live in Australia. I don't know what perceptions everyone has about Australia, but we don't all wrestle crocodiles, we rarely say 'Crikey!', kangaroos are not a mode of transport, and I have never heard anybody say 'shrimp on the barbie' in actual context. Anyway, enough about my country, more about me. I like games, I love adventure games, but the games in the Monkey Island series are at the top of my list (yes, even Escape). I also enjoy Australian Rules Football as well as two-wheeled motorsports (MotoGP, World Superbikes, etc.). I'm also a huge music fan, rock and metal being my favourite genres, but I do listen to other genres occasionally. That's a brief summary of, well, me.

Hachachachacha! Its Dexterspet here. Im always the joking around life of the party kind of guy. I love cracking jokes and this is my first post of what I assume will be many. I wanna say it's an honor to be part of such a community as this. Im young but not too young and I am a HUGE fan of Monkey Island and Star Wars. I have blue eyes and enjoy my 360 very much. I tend to typo a lot because my computer has weird messed up keys. Just the more reason to proofread everything I type. Also, I think that walkthroughs are wrong, mostly because once I complete a game, I never forget anything about it, so I think walkthroughs are stupid. But I know that is a stupid statement, because I used a walkthrough for some very obscure puzzles, or ones that are just really out of my league. (Like giving "how to get A-Head in navigating" to the cannibals....Har har har Lucasarts....) I also tend to rant/go on tangents a lot when I type for no explicit reason. Well, I think i've typed quite enough. I'll be happy to talk to anyone reading this in the near future on a hopefully more interesting topic.

Personally I'm more interested in these "weird, messed-up keys" on your keyboard. How so?

I don't understand what's wrong with them entirely. They aren't sticky, it just seems that they work whenever they want to unless you hit them semi-harder than usual in the exact center of the key. Otherwise if you are typing fast and just typing the sides of the keys, they work about 90% of the time.

Hi, I'm Hellbeard and I used to frequent the Mixnmojo forum quite regularly about 7 or 8 years ago, however that made me 12-13 years old and I was incredibly annoying. In fact, I think I was what would be classified as a "troll" before trolls even existed. I made a habit of making stupid threads and irritating metallus, gabez, elTee and haggis among others. Not sure if I ever came close to getting banned, but I probably deserved to be.

My most famous thread was "Hellbeard's Pong Challenge" where I challenged people to beat my score in a 3D internet ping pong game, and the winner got a desktop background I made (it was bad.. I was 12). I thought I was amazing at the game so I refused to believe people who said they beat my score. I was also obsessed with the fact that I got an Earl Boen autograph of his head with a dartboard drawn on it (He drew the dartboard).

I'm from Toronto, Canada and I've played every Lucasarts Adventure game except for the Dig and Zak McKraken, and I am thrilled that Monkey Island, and Sam and Max came back from the dead. (remember when mojo lost its mind when Lucasarts canceled Sam and Max 2!? That **** was crazy!)

Anyways, I just figured that with the recent influx of telltale and lucasarts adventure games that it would be a good idea to make a glorious return to the world of mojo.

Welcome back Hellbeard! It's good to have you here!

Now go and play the Dig! It's one of LucasArts' best games IMO.
