The voice talent on Grim Fandango is exceptional, and the mood they set in year 2 with the art deco graphics, and music score - different for each location - is something to savor. I kept the game on one scene in the bar at the Calavera Cafe for about thirty minutes. Maybe I should get out more, but doing some reading while a massive, thing played some lightly introspective piano jazz and a skeleton nattily dressed in a white dinner jacket smoked a cigarette was very soothing. Just tell me where I can get that kind of experience in the real world.

I also encourage you to get Manny on stage in the beatnik bar Blue Casket, to do a poem. You appreciate actor Tony Plana's hamming it up - even more after Olivia delivers her poem/s (though she's good at being sultry). Eating only spiders and leaves...Don't pet the cat that way!...a single, calcified tear... Also, have Manny try to pick up some kitty litter in the big litter room.
