Auregan Strikes Again

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Auregan – the fetching-yet-tough-as-nails French siren that makes tricorns look fashionable. But she recently released her single 1798 (available on iTunes) along with a music video:

One video, four different flavors of our piratey French songstress – one of which appears to be undead. I don’t speak Frenchy, so I can only guess at the meaning of the lyrics – I assume they’re about me, and I’m quite flattered.

Ok, they didn’t hire the ACTUAL Blackbeard, because he doesn’t come cheap. But they hired a presentable lookalike.

And now, by the Law of Genre Assimilation (Jack Sparrow says “savvy” so now all pirates say “savvy”, De Niro played an airship pirate, so now steampunks are are piratey, Barbossa gets a pegleg and pirate-enthusiasts all buy hacksaws, etc), speech recognition software should henceforth be incorporated into every pirate persona. Make it so.

Shiver Me Timbers! First Look at Hart of Dixie’s Thanksgiving Episode—Pirate Style! – E! Online.

I’m not a fan of puns, but “Planksgiving” does seem a tad clever. And yet, just knowing this episode exists makes me want to go cry in the shower.
