1. Pirates R Us – KYAR Pirate Radio (3:55)
2. Brine & Bastards – Overboard (3:33)

Bacardi’s Gonna Lose its Monopoly…

This really pisses me off, because I *like* picking on Bacardi. Seriously, it’s one of the great joys in my life. Over the years I’ve dug up all kinds of news reports where somebody does something idiotic involving rum, and time and again the rum in question was Bacardi. But lately the idiots seem to be diversifying their tastes. I recently posted a story where one yahoo broke into a bar and ran off with Captain Morgan, and now this other joker gets caught shoplifting Cockspur:

Rum thief is jailed for 30 days | Bermuda Court

True, neither of these stories are as dopey as, say, the guy that strapped his Bacardi into a car seat for a high speed police chase (while neglecting to wear a seatbelt himself. But still, it’s a disturbing trend that threatens my beloved passtime of Bacardi-hatin’.

No Podcast This Week :(

Sorry, all, but there won’t be an episode of Bilgemunky Radio this week. Our steaming streaming server had some fatal errors during last night’s broadcast, leaving us with dead air. I won’t bore you with details, but rest assured I’m doing my best to ensure next week’s show puts us back on track!

You asked for a piratey version of Deadwood? Maybe this will suit…

Hrm… Far off news like this is always dicey – especially when it comes to pirate matters (HOW many pirate films and videogames have been announced and never come to fruition?) But still, pirate fanatics will no doubt rejoice at this news:

‘Walking Dead’ producer plans pirate drama

Port Royal, pirates, rum, wenches… and hopefully not too many sentient sea monsters. This just might be the historical(ish) pirate story we’ve been waiting for 🙂
