it has come to my attention that a pirate movie of quality is "coming out"(jab-jab)in the mainstream . does this sound the warning that the end is near?. If only it had been screened at sundance......arrrr!

T

I can't keep up with this shit. 'Pirate chic' had just barely crept onto my pop-culture radar and now it's over?

Sigh.

Actually I am very excited about Pirates of the Carribbean. Even if it is an 'uncool' movie...

T

Oh wait. I just got the joke.

Ha ha

"I'm from Canada and they think I'm slow, eh?"

T

I better get this in while it's still cool:

A pirate walks into a bar with a big ship's wheel tied to his waist.

Bartender: "What's that ship wheel tied to your waist for?".

Pirate: "Aaaarrr, it's drivin' me nuts!".

Aaaaarrr! Ya swab yea, I'll keelhaul yea fer sayin pirates ain't cool, Aaaaaarrr

If the Pirate movie turns out to be a stinker, go see "Master & Commander" when it comes out later this year. It is based on the Patrick O'Brien book about the British Navy during the Napoleonic era, and stars Russell Crowe. I love O'Brien's novels.
Somehow I'm expecting a politically correct pirate's of the Caribbean movie... but will be pleasantly surprised if it is a full-on feast of debauchery.

Ye gods

I just saw a hibiscus sticker on a car in the company parking lot, a bunch of Hawaiian shirts on sale at Target...

I may be new, but I'm curious... are we here for Poly Pop, or Poly Pristige?

Yes, joke thread, well aware, just blathering.

does this sound the warning that the end is near?.

In my opinion No. Mainstream in many ways is a good thing because it means more money going towards all things Tiki (or perhaps in this case Piracy). If there is demand -- supply will follow meaning more business for some on this board. I say bring it on...the die hards will still know where to "really" go when the rest of the world is drinking cheap Rum. Besides which would you rather have 20 Movies to enjoy and critize or 2 ?? Take the 20 odds are someone in Hollywood will get it right at least once.

A little kid goes trick-or-treating as a pirate one year. He knocks on the door of a house and sez, "Trick Or Treat!"

The lady who answers the door sez, "My, what a cute little pirate! And where are your buccaneers?"

And the kid sez, "Under my buccan' hat, lady!"

Q: What's a pirates favorite TV show?

Q: Which television celebrity do pirates think is sexy?

A: Sara Michelle GellAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR!

Thank you! Good night!

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
Martin, that's one of my all-time favorite jokes! I can't hear the word buccaneers without giggling. The last Superbowl nearly killed me.

Five pirates and one woman wash up on a desert island after a shipwreck.
Before long they are all getting pretty horny so they all make a deal.
Each pirate will marry the woman for one week at a time, at which point the next pirate in line will marry her and so on.
All the pirates get sex every five weeks and the woman gets sex as often as she wants with a different pirate each week.
The situation works wonderfully for five years. When the woman suddenly dies...
The first week after wasn't too bad.
The second week was getting sort of bad.
The third week was getting pretty bad.
The fourth week was really bad.
The fifth week was horrible!
By the sixth week it was unbearable...

So they buried her.

Molten lava is officially un-cool.

The Sun is also extremely un-cool.

And I'm un-cool too, for just making one of my most worthless posts ever.

So, by that rationale, this has to be the most uncool sticker on the planet. :wink:

What is with this Orlando Bloom facination? (MonkeyPaw? VintageGirl?) I mean the guy was doing 7-Up commercials two months ago, wasnt he?
And Johnny Depp? Is he still around? I thought he bought it with a drug overdose at the Viper Room right after making "From Hell" or something...

Ah, what the hell do I know? I'm still in my 80's Miami Vice phase.
I'll go see the movie just to watch something that is different and non-chick-flick...ish.

T

Let's see if I can get this right?

BLOOM

and... JONES

RIGHT?

M

Well clarified, tikimug. And with nice visual aids.

[i]What is with this Orlando Bloom facination? (MonkeyPaw? VintageGirl?) I mean the guy was doing 7-Up commercials two months ago, wasnt he?

Well, I'll admit that Orlando just isn't quite as hunky in real life. (I think he's got some mousey curly hair in a bad 'do or something.) But just goes to show you what Hollywood magic can do. Oh, and I think many women already found him quite alluring as the hot blond elf Legolas in Lord of the Rings a couple of years ago.

As for Johnny Depp, I've always liked him and his odd choices in film roles. (OK, so maybe I didn't exactly watch him on 21 Jump Street. But I think he got better in the movies.) Besides he was so wonderfully goth in Edward Scissorhands!

I had no idea that Orlando fellow was so talented...But did he do the 7-Up ads in black face or Lord of the Rings in white face?

T

Hey woof are you forgeting about his singing career with Dawn?

This guys got more talent in his little pinky than I have in my whole pinky!

Wasn't "pirate" un-cool after being exploited and burnt out by Adam and the Ants???

I loved the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland when I was a kid (still do). I look forward to the movie, but Johnny Depp seems kind of gay in his mannerisms (in the previews) and not as brawn as you would hope for a pirate captain. I guess Walt Disney does not want to scare the kids.
Here is a link for the official website:

So would this be the ultimate in UNCOOL?

T

I thought what Adam and the Ants was wearing was more a more of a period piece like a "Dangerous Liasons" sort of way with American Indian makup. Boy did I miss that one completely.

ARRRRRR!!

While Adam Ant did do a tour in the early 80's that had a full-size pirate ship for a stage set, he also played a highwayman or rogue among other things, in his music videos. (It was all part of the Blitz, baby.)

And frankly, Adam can climb onto my rigging anytime.

Those sultry eyelinered eyes and glossed lips in Stand & Deliver....Oooo!!

Okay, okay, my turn!

Have you seen the movie about the asteroid that crashes into the pirate ship?
It's called ARRRRRRRRRRmageddon!

Thank you! I'll be here 'til Thursday! Try the veal!

Ummmm....helloooooo!?

Did everyone forget about our Special Agent (closet) Pirate?

Pop, can you get me into Disneyland for free again? Oh yeah, congrats on the promotion, I had a feeling the "It's a Small World" ride shift was getting to you.

I guess I need to cut down on the fried chicken. The sash is beginning to feel a little snug.
