Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus – Yarrr!!!

Ok, so there’s really nothing particularly piratey about this. But I consider all things “Mega Shark” to be honorarily piratey. I mean, in his last movie he took a bit out of a 747 – WHILE IT WAS IN THE AIR!!! Never let logic stand in the way of AWESOME, that’s what I say. And I’m sure Blackbeard would have agreed, so there you go. Plus, this new movie Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus stars Urkel! Sea monsters plus has-been actors – if that’s not a recipe for awesome, I don’t know what is.

Burning Sea Music Video – See You There!

These past two weeks since Pirates of the Burning Sea has gone free to play, I’ve been spending most every (non-Bilgemunky Radio) night doing some pillaging and plundering. However, now I’m heading out of town for a few days and won’t have much time for such things. But this presents a splendid opportunity for a few of you Munky Knifefighters to hop ingame and get up to speed so we can gut a few Spaniards together! And just to whet your appetite, here’s a Burning Sea music video:

And before you even ask, no, I’m not on the Burning Sea payroll. The reason I’m pimping them so hard is that since getting back ingame, I have no friends!!! I feel like a level 34 Cutthroat N00b 🙁

Yo Ho, Sebastian!

It’s pretty well established by now that homosexual pirates were indeed a part of the Golden Age. How big a part is a matter of debate, but definitely a part. And how were those gay pirates treated upon being ‘outed’ by their shipmates? Well, that too is subject to much speculation. Cosmo Jarvis has offered his own theory in this video. Or maybe it’s supposed to be commentary on more contemporary gay issues. Regardless, it’s very piratey, and very gay. Seriously, don’t watch if seeing two dudes kissing is the sort of thing that sends your panties into a twist.

Remarkably sincere and heartfelt for a video called “Gay Pirates.” And even more remarkable is that Cosmo Jarvis himself is straight.

Bundaberg Kicks Ass!

I’ve never given Bundaberg rum much thought – mainly because I’ve never seen it available in the US. That, and I have to wonder about a rum that features a polar bear on the label. A polar bear? Really?!?

Well, wonder no more – this commercial demonstrates that Bundaberg Rum clearly and thoroughly kicks ass. Don’t know if it’s any good as a rum, but it kicks ass.

Coolest Firgurehead EVER!

I think this was a concept for a lead miniature – the sort of thing guys that can’t get girlfriends collect, paint, and then use to have tabletop adventures of the imagination. But really, if you had a figurehead like this – even a miniature one – do you really NEED a girlfriend?

Actually, yes, you still need a girlfriend. Because if you try to date a ship’s figurehead you’ll not only have trouble getting into fine restaurants, but also, this gal looks pretty mean. You deserve better.

Anatomy of a Pirate

I forget where exactly I found this little gem, but I’m fairly certain it’s somehow related to the TellTale Games’ Monkey Island Adventures. If there’s any justice in the world, they’ll make it available as a t-shirt. Or better yet, an engraved marble coaster.
