Avast, me hearties! Caught a matinée of Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest with me mateys fosteronfilm and Patrick yesterday. Blimey, but Bill Nighy as CGI tentacle Cap'n Davy Jones was absolutely amazin', shivered me timbers he did, aye. A little darker than t'original, ahrrr, and with a decided The Empire Strikes Back feel't. Nevertheless, the look of t'were enough to boonswaggle me deadlights. Although now I got a powerful urge t'spout pirate-isms and swing me a cutlass. Ahrrr.

Me bucko, arkhamrefugee, has petitioned me t'display pirate colors for Dragon*Con, which appeals t'this landlubber. But I needs to pillage me t'proper garb fer the occasion. Ahrr, a pox on me empty coffers. I wonder if t'editors would consider paying me in doubloons.
