Going on the Account: Meanwhile, Among Real Pirates…

The latest word from Somalia is that private security firms are being brought in to work on suppression ops.  And right there, in the opening sentence of the article, is word that Blackwater Worldwide is being given an opportunity to participate in this theater.

 

This.  Will.  Not.  End.  Well.

 

And yes, the standoff over the Faina is still ongoing…

Going on the Account: Sailing with a Rutter at Hand

So now there’s a new trend towards having footnotes in fiction

 

I admit, I do a little of that here, and so far no one’s complained.  Yet…

Going on the Account: Adorning Your Finery this Halloween?

Just in time for All Hallow’s Eve, Smahain, the American Guy Fawke’s Day, what-have-you, there is an interesting article on pirate reenactors online

 

As to the popularity of pirate dress-up, we had a Halloween party at my son’s school on Friday, and the buccaneers were well in attendance that night; we had enough going through the party to man a sloop.  And a large number were young ladies, to boot.

 

According to the article, there’s a certain amount of annoyance at all of the Jack Sparrow-inspired pirates showing up.  If there’s anyone out there looking for a non-PotC derived character to work from, well, there’s a lot of good possibilities here…

 

And hey, if you do decide to do Abigail, Hope, or any other crew from the Raging Gale, I’d love to share pictures of your costumes with other readers.  Post here links to anything you have uploaded and want to display.
