Private Pirate Monkey Brainstorming...

posted by ttg_Stemmle on - last edited - Viewed by 4K users

Hey guys 'n' gals,

In the spirit of "tapping the hive mind," I've got a few enigmatic questions for y'all:

-- What sort of book titles do you think could be found on the Voodoo Lady's bookshelf? Y'know, things like "The Joy of Hex," or "Screams of My Father."

-- For reasons that defy explanation, we're trying to enumerate dozens of unique kinds of winds, things like "The Wind the Blows Off Your Hat," or "The Wind that Sounds Remarkably Like an Unhappy Echidna." Can you think of any others?

-- Lastly, what's your pirate name?

Not promising anything,
Mike "Sleepy Boy" Stemmle

    All I can seem to think of is "the wind in the willows"...

    Pirate name:
    "Captain Luthier" would be nice, don't know if it sounds really "piratey" though.

    I'll come back with more! :D

  • Good, clean fun!

    The wind that startles
    The wind that just hangs there
    The wind that fells trees
    The wind that has no name (OK, no other name)
    The wind that denudes O_o
    The wind that makes phlegm fly (or, the wind that launched a thousand *hoik*s)
    The wind that dances the fandango (grim?)

    :)

  • 1. Urg this was hard:
    Poor Herman's Almanac
    What's that on the Western fro--AH!
    ( and sigh) Hairy Pot-ARRRRR! and the philanthropists bone.

    2.
    The wind of discontent.
    John Wyndham
    The wind that thought it could, but couldn't.
    The wind that was just strong enough to ruin a picnic, but not to fly a kite.
    The wind that sounds like two gerbils sneezing.
    The wind that sounded like justice, but smelt like rabbits.

    3. I'm pretty sure any name I came up with has to to end up with my internet name so I'll go with Azure the apocryphal.

    I'm loving it :D

    For a book, how about:
    Guybrush & LeChuck: The Prophecy (One can only live when the other dies... erm... for good.)

  • For t'Voodoo lady:
    "Hex and Hacks"
    "F-101 Voodoo"
    "Voodoo vs Hoodoo - the cans and cannots of the hexing world"
    "Voodoo etiquette"
    "Voodoo for Dummies"

    As for windy things not made by Heinz:
    The wind that reminds you of those evenings after a bean casserole
    The wind that can be read as two different words
    The wind that whistles in your ear, much like the high pitched drone of a nagging child
    The wind that could upturn a resting iguana
    The wind that cries Mary

    And my pirate name would be Hornswaggler Raine, perhaps, or something better. With a cool title/prefix perhaps, like Powder Monkey, or Cockswain.
