  5. What lured you to pyracy?

    It can only be blamed on one person. So there I was, mindin' me own business. When Oliver Sudden (that's a friend of mine) buys me a beer, whilst sitting next to the nefarious scoundrel, Robb... err, Hurricane. We had been pillaging together once or twice, I noticed there was something about him that was unique amongst even other pirates. He was trubble with a capital "T" and a lot of "rubble." He liked to stir things up. Very piratey. So there I sat, having just finished the last gig with my previous band, witness to the end of one era. Fate was about to step through the door. Hurricane looks across the bar at me, and sez, "I have a proposition fer you. Two weeks in Key West. All you need to do is to learn the songs, [which I know you can do,] and wear a pirate costume, [which I know you have.] What say you, sir?" I looked up at the ceiling and said, "Sounds interesting. Let me think about it." Oliver reaches across and grabs me by the shirt: "Two weeks in Key West! Music! Pirates!!! What's there to THINK about??? Just do it!!!" "You are right," I said. I turned back to Hurricane and replied. "I'm in." Beginning of a new era. Nothing in myself or in my life has been the same since. Ah, the warm waters of the Caribbe... Adventures, rum, danger, love, fate, disaster, rum, hurricanes (4 of 'em,) music, more rum, sunsets that defy description, sailing, more rum, pillaging and much fun, frolicking and inspiration... "Pirate, that's in yer blood mate, and ye'll have to square with that someday."
  6. OOoohhh, now THAT'S a nice, bit 'at....

    Everything went according to plan.
  8. Happy Birthday to....

  11. Pyrate Trading Cards V

    Alrighty mateys, I be just brimmin' wit' questions. But I'll keep it to ones that are pertinent to the task at hand: * Do the cards have to be the original artwork, or can we do one piece and reproduce it onto 10 cards? I'm thinkin', bein' as we have one month, and as this is the band's busy season with festivals and all (we have four gigs within one week alone!) and a full 5 days of 10-hour recording sessions at the end of the month, it might be more prudent (heh, I rarely use THAT word...) to put a little more effort into one piece and make ten reproductions, if that's okay for this round. * What are the dimensions of the cards? * What kind of card/paper stock shouldst we use, or is that up to the individual? * and, just out of curiosity, how many participants do we have at the moment?
