That’s right, a very special episode of Bilgemunky Radio, featuring no (well, almost no) requests from listeners! Is that a good thing? Well, it made Bilgemunky happy, so that’s something 🙂 Tonight’s show sponsored in part by ToBeAPirate.com.
I’m right crabby today – there are several things in the pirate world right now that boggle my mind and annoy my delicate sensitivities. My grumbles spawn from the goings-on of several different pirate events and crews, and seem to be too numerous to list without going mad. But I’d offer these three highlights for consideration: Continue reading
Ready for a low budget pirate horror that doesn’t suck ballshot? Me too. Sadly, Blood Island from Fixed Point Films looks every bit as lame as all the others. Maybe slightly better than Curse of Pirate Death, but that’s a bloodly low bar to begin with.
Great mix of old and new with Alestorm, Salt Sea Pirates, Budd Bay Buccaneers, and so much more! Tonight’s show sponsored by ToBeAPirate.com.
If you’ve ever wanted to see Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew perform live (and who hasn’t?), then you really should have gone to Nerdapalooza this year. Of course, that piece of news is of no use to those of us who can’t travel backwards in time, which is why God invented Youtube:

And as an added bonus, Captain Dan and some cowardly ninjas talk smack about each other. As before, there’s a naughty word or two: Continue reading
By and large I only pay movie gossip a passing glance. It hardly pays to take the stuff seriously because as soon as you read about it, it’s already changed. But this article in Variety seems novel enough to warrant consideration, even if it turns out to be bunk. We’ve already know that a Captain Blood Remake was in the air (although, I recently noticed that No Quarter Given noted a Captain Blood remake was in the works back in their May ’94 issue – see what I mean about movie gossip?), but this is the first mention I’ve seen that indicates it will be an outer space swashbuckler. Imagine the possibilities… zero-g fencing, rum squeezed from a tube, and all the spaniards (or their alien equivelant) played by Alf.
In seriousness, no word yet on whether this will be more serious or tongue-in-cheek, whether it will be a space full of aliens a la Star Wars or more of a true space frontier full of nothing but settlers and explorers such as Firefly. It will be fun to see if this idea has merit, and if so how it develops.
