I can’t help myself. I see an opportunity, I take it. It’s a sickness, truly.
My name is John Silver,
and I would like to join your crew.
We’re going to build a new order of things,
and it starts today.
Spend enough time on an island, you begin to forget there’s a whole world out there. A world where the rules are different. Clinging to the past the rest of us have long outgrown. But make no mistake about it; whatever future this place has left,
I’m in it.
There’s a war coming. When the king brands us pirates, he doesn’t mean to make us adversaries,
he means to make us monsters.
So! You may have all heard about the new pirate-centred programme Black Sails for Starz that is being released January 2015. In light of this as well as the recent release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, coupled with my severe lack of posting on this blog, I’ve been considering making this blog a general pirate centred blog as opposed to a specifically Pirates of the Caribbean centred blog.
The blog would still consist heavily of POTC, but there would also be a lot of AC4, Black Sails and other pirate media, as well as appreciation for historical pirates in general.
Feel free to give your opinions on this revamp, or maybe even suggest some other pirate focused programmes or films, etc, for me to take a look at!
Wherever we want to go, we go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails. That’s what a ship needs. But what a ship is … is freedom.
