Twilight Eclipse: the pangolin's burrow.
If you really want to know what goes on inside my head, inside my soul, enter. If I ever remember to actually use this, you should be prepared for anything.
PIRATE MUSIC, landlubbers!
AVAST! smilies/icon_pirate.gif Since tomorrow be some day havin' ought to do with pirates, Ah be thinkin'. Perhaps I should raise this strange device which conjureth the sounds of tomorrow, a brighter day which doth be CHEERIN' an' not JEERIN' us. So behold! upon the yardarm, that which the bosun hath dub'd, THOUTUBE LINK LIST, an' enjoy bein' regal'd by the minstrels, which do sing of our pirate glories, ye scallywags.

(A serious note here. If you like the music, find and buy it. Much of it is great stuff on its own; but my experience with buying music is this. The songs used to sell the music aren't always the best in an artist's set. Buy the music, and have more of it to enjoy in whatever you do and wherever you go. smilies/icon_3nodding.gif )

VICTORY
A song which openeth a work of theatre ABOUT a work of theatre about pirates. He who wroteth it hath the imagination of a barnacle, for he did name it "The Pirate Movie."

THOU ART A PIRATE
Even wee fishies can join the crew!

Wolves...
Minstrels of Latvia can be naught but pirates and sea-wolves.

Of course, bein' a pirate, 'tis not ALWAYS about lootin', drinkin' an' wenchin'.

Tim Curry, a most excellent pirate, and professional. Behold his magnificence, and his crew of muppets.

Cool thine heels with a shanty most familiar. The tongue thereof may be not; it be of Poland.

To thee who complainest, even ye who speakest but the tongue of America: pirates be the world, matey. From the legendary Sea Peoples of ancient times, which were a terror even unto Egypt, to the Cilicians who claimed mighty Caesar for booty (unto their eventual doom,) to the Vikings of the north, the wacko wokou of Japan and China, and the glorious privateers who did hunt pirates while also being pirates. (Who seem also to be Vikings, for Turisas is a minstrel troupe most glorious.)

I must warn ye all about this one: 'tis a sordid tale of a landlubber who betrayed the crew somehow. There be mild suggestions of crew life, including wenchin' and floggin' and pirate justice.
Worry not, for it be in clean fun; but those more sensitive among ye are advised to refrain. Keelhauled!

If any of y'all have pirate music, post some replies here. Please be sure to keep it clean and in the spirit of good pirate fun. smilies/icon_3nodding.gif

    Tim Curry is AMAZING. Though its hard to not imagine him in every role doing exactly what he is in that role but in full transvestite clothing.
