To All Pirates Seeking A Crew [26 Aug 2009|01:19pm]


'Ello All!

Recently, myself and some mates decided to start our own pirate crew/group.

We arrr sailin' across the cyber seas, lookin' for some fellow pirates t' come join us on our ventures.

We tend to travel to different events (such as faires and cons), with our home port being Pennsic War. Right now, we are mostly based on the east coast of the states, but if ye are lookin' t' join a crew, regardless of where you are located, we would be glad to have ye!

-If you are interested in joining or want more information, send me a message and I'll answer any questions and provide ye with a link to our website/forum.-

PyrateCon 2008 [18 Jan 2008|12:24am]

Join us at PyrateCon 2008 when we give away full free issues of the Spring magazine to every guest and vendor at the convention! It's our way of saying thank you for your support as we continue on into our third year of publication and the only magazine created BY Pyrates FOR Pyrates!

Check out some of the Spring highlights with a full 16-page PyrateCon highlight including maps, itinerary, background information, and a with a "one-on-one" session with Scarlott Harlott, our Grand Marshall of PyrateCon 2008! (no, this has nothing to do with how hot she thought my tattoo was in LA the other weekend. . LOL. . . we're just friends.)

I have to give credit to good friend Clay and Capt. Dave who gave me one killer tattoo with The Pyrates Way logo dead center of the art. . . doesn't get more pyratical than that!

Back to PyrateCon. . . . The Pyrates Way caravan of vehicles leaves Delaware to MD then DC and onward to an overnight in Roanoke, VA. The we're on the road to Nashville for another overnight (and to kidnap the best wench photographer in the world, Craig) then in The Big Easy a day early to help the PyrateCon folks set up. We give back to the pyratin' community in every way possible.

The Pyrates Way will be set up in the main lobby next to the registration booth with our own animatronic robot "Aaaargyle" who has been heard from in the magazine but never seen before! Subscribers get to pull FREE booty from our huge treasure chest which includes prizes like DVDs, Pyrate Toys, Glasses, free subscriptions, and even $100 in cash!

We'll also be sponsoring both the Pyrate and Wench of the YEAR contests with prizes, trophies and the chance for each winner to see themselves on the cover of America's premier pyrate magazine. . . THE PYRATES WAY.

The Pyrates Way is also giving a portion of our ad revenue from the Spring issue to the charities of PyrateCon 2008 and including subscription/back issues packs as auction items AND giving FOUR original acrylic paintings to be auctioned! Each one of these paintings has been or will be the back cover to The Pyrates Way magazine! (including Autumn07, Winter07-08, Spring08, & Summer08 issues). Own a piece of pyrate history when you bid on any of these great items for a great cause!

But our Spring Issue just begins with PyrateCon 2008. . . we also include the history of Jean Lefitte. . . . an article about where New Orleans folks go for the best food. . . sights of pyracy outside of pyratecon to see. . . and as we've been giving you for three years. . . Hot Wenches (five beautiful ladies who don't need a lot of Photoshop to be beautiful), A feature about a rum you might not know of, Re-Enactor's Corner, The most up-to-date and authentic pyrate events calendar anywhere, reviews of pyrate DVDs, Music, Books (and in Summer, we'll begin reviewing pyrate websites!), Crosswords, Jokes & Cartoons in our Lollygag section, and a Final Salvo dedicated to West Coast pyrates who've claimed just a piece of this old pyrate's heart.

All that plunder for FREE with your PyrateCon 2008 ticket. . . and that's just what we're offering. . . imagine all the other entertainment, lectures, food, rum, dancing, blackpowder, swords, wench auctions and an invasion of the French Quarter by all of our pyrate brethren.

I could go on, but my screen is covered in white-out.

Look at me Booty! [03 Nov 2006|06:49am]

[ mood | creative ]

Ahoy, mateys!

While I've been stuck in port, waitin' for repairs on me ship, I've been designin' these here little treasures for yer entertainment. Take a look, if you so please... me Jolly Roger was drawn by artist Chris Ford, an' he did a mighty fine job of it too! (No plunderin' of the image, please!!)

Me fine shirts say things like:
"I'm a pirate. Want me booty?"
"So many pirates, so little time."
"Pirates get ALL the booty!"
"I <3 Pirates"
"Looking for pirate booty."
- and the ever-popular -
"Who needs RUM when you've got JACK?"

Ye can see all me items at the Pirate Booty section of BelleMarie's Boo-doir. Send me a missive an' let me know if you like 'em. (Or purchase some, so I can fix me ship!)

(I be hopin' that it is all right to post this here... if not, feel free to delete, and accept me apologies... xposted to all the pirate communities listed on me profile, with more apologies...)

brushes for PhotoShop and stuff....piratey goodness [14 Sep 2005|05:53am]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Come one, Come all. I made 5 sets of brushes. Mostly pirate related..but has others in this one too. I'm making a few more sets in the future.

These were made from various dingbat fonts. Yes, I know, not very original, but they come in handy.

You don't need to credit me, unless you really want to.

I saw the most horrible disgusting thing in my life the other day.

"Bratz Pirate Treasures"

It made me freeze, gasp, and my lower lip quiver. It is the most insulting thing that I have EVER seen in my life of piracy.

Yes, I agree the fad of PotC is dying out, but now it has turned to pre-teens who have no idea about the true life of a pirate. They will only plaster themselves with Calico Jack's signature jolly roger and prance around going "Shiver me timbers" and "Walk the Plank!"

Oh Davey Jones, it hurts.

Not only that, they have fallen into sterotypical pirate behavior. Such as walking the plank, eye patches and burried treasure.

What will happen next?

Or so he'p me matey, i'll shove this 'ere knife in places tha'll make ya wish ya hadn't been born [23 Mar 2005|08:50pm]

[ mood | devious ]

The rave about "Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean" is dying out. It was a great movie, surely. But I was pirate long before that movie...and I'll die a pirate farther down the road. That movie only brought out the worst in piracy, the collectible value of it. The long time Hanson fans gravitated to Johnny Depp and Orlando Blooms performance, piracy was riddled with young people insisting that they were "Pirate" when they would only wear something tattered or torn and had Johnny Depp as their Lj Icon. I have stayed silent for years since that great movie came out and now I believe it is time that Piracy becomes a word that police and politicians fear once again.
The Jolly Roger was a flag flown by pirates when they meant business, however today, the "Jolly Roger" is the same old Skull with Crossed bones. Back then each crew and Captain flew their own personal flag. Jack Rackham did, Edward Teach did, each flag was unique.
I have my own personal flag.
Image hosted by Photobucket.com
That is mine, no one steal it. I have it spray painted on a piece of black denim and have been known to fly it from the side of my car at certain times.

I am issuing a challenge to people to show me your personal pirate flag. What shape or form would best describe your mood when someone is trying to fight back...when they should be surrendering.
I don't care what it looks like, no one is judging you.
