The Calm Before The Storm

Well it's that time of week again. Yes, the day before LucasArts post a few screenshots, update a product info page and maybe re scan some old monkey island art! But what's different about today?
(apart from jake's birthday) It's Halloween!
Every year Halloween is celebrated across the web in the all singing tradition of "logo-change-time" this also happens at Christmas, and sometimes also on that random American celebration of July 4th, when
sites around the world
American sites post Java-based fireworks everywhere that we all love!
OK.. so what did we do to celebrate Halloween?? We changed our logo into Jake. But other sites have put a bit more thought into the whole thing:Samandmax.net has a lovely comic strip up featuring the word "poonk"
The Scummbar has had a little pumpkin lurking behind the logo for a few days now. I'm hoping it wil start to dance later on.
Grim Fandago Network has updated their page with a scary skeleto.... oh no wait....
Mojo Art has gained a pumpkin or two.
And, here are some other non-Mojo things (hopefully we'll be adding to this later):For those that missed it, we posted this link to Dave Grossman's page of pumpkin sculptures he has made.. all of which completely own any attempt I have ever made.This guy and the rest of his dorm at Cornell University had some amazing Blue Casket party for Halloween earlier this week, and here's some pictures from it. Our very own DJG might have attended this Grim party as BatDan, but you'll never see a picture of it, or hear him admit to it.
Please add your Scary findings into our comments section
, and expect this news post to be updated as more folk wake up and get it together to update their websites.Update:
Whilst at work I have decided to create a pumpkinesque sculpture from available resources. These have included an apple and some lego. I will hereby encourage other mojo Staff to upload pictures of their halloween efforts and add them to this post. Update:
We now have Jake's Halloween efforts
