Time for a word from Blackbeard the Pirate!
Looking for'erd ta havin' Long Island's Pyrate Brotherhood in on this comin' weekend's 28th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade! Dick Zigun an' his crusty, freaky crew be pullin' out the stops this year, and methinks we be in fer much silliness, shiverin' o' th' timbers and all else in between!
In case you ain't heard, I'm finally gonna have a chance, me first chance in over 50 years, as a matter o' fact, ta be in a major studio movie! And it ain't just ANY major studio movie, mind ye: it be the next chapter of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, to be titled On Stranger Tides. Clearly, blarsted ol' Bruckheimer be a-wantin' ta see what ol' Teach kin do agin th' likes o' Cap'n Jack Sparrow, and so, he's order'd Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio to write a new adventure where Jackie boy has ta match wits with me! (Hmmmm..... I wonder how Penny Rose will put me costume together, let alone what them ILM swabbies'll do to me Piratical personage!) Well, all I can say is, we'll be knowin' those soon enuf, say I!
As for the Rockland, Maine Lobster Festival, it'll be another thrill, lecturin' 2009 Maine Sea Goddess Callie MacQueston on the finer points o' bein' a Pirate whilst Neptune an' me hescort her and our pals onto the Rockland shore, straight from the Briny Deep! The site should have all the details soon!
Now get off me boat. Ye be blockin' me suntan formula. Aarrrrgh!
