thanks for sharing. But I wasn't particularly impressed with that vid.* Were you?

*unless it's your work product, in which case, it's brilliant!

but that second think looks fun! Think I could replicate that in my living room?

The Yo Ho video is not my work product, it's more about the song that the images. I thought it was rather lame also ... would have preferred a concert video, actually

I'm sure you could build a full size repro of a pirate ship in your living room ... including a trampoline and a pool. You might need to raise the ceiling to accommodate the trapeze act, though.

I'm tellin' yah, it were spektakular. Arrrgh, matey.

My whole crew went to the pirate dinner while we were in Orlando. In pirate costumes.

(considers) I could build a cardboard box pirate ship. I have those little doohickeys which I never used. Like this:

I'll probably celebrate with my work buddies on Friday. It's a made up holiday anyway, right? (wish I had a pirate translator)

haha! Unwisely, I tried reading that aloud: "R, r, r, r, r, . . . "

Like a seal!

I think this has been posted before, but there's one here:

http://www.syddware.com/cgi-bin/pirate.pl

Here's a few movie quotes I translated:


I be goin' t' make th' lad an offer he canna refuse.

I be as mad as hell, an' I be nay goin' t' take this anymore!

As God be me witness, I`ll ne're be hungry again.

Life be a banquet, an' most poor suckers be starvin' t' Davy Jones' locker!

We'll be on a boat going deep sea fishing that day. I guess we'll all sound more sensible talking like pirates then huh?
