Tonight one of the most serious scandals in modern pirate haiku competition was witnessed on the beach at Tybee Island when a pirate identifying himself only as “Wade of the Jennies” challenged one of his smartest and good-looking viewers live-on-the-air to produce a proper haiku for which he would be rewarded with a special Continue Reading

PiratePalooza 2017: A Pirates Adventure!

13th Annual PiratePalooza A Tale of Adventure!

We celebrated the 13th anniversary of PiratePalooza™ once more in the inland port of Decatarrrr. This be an account of that adventure. – Captain Drew

For the first time in years I arrived on schedule to Mister Twain’s House of Ale.  As I looked around the place all I seen was landsmen – not a sailor in sight. For a heartbeat I thought I’d gotten my schedule mixed up (again) and was about to leg it down to Henrietta’s Butt Hutt to figure out what day it was – that’s when I seen Porthos sitting up near the front.

Getting to a party first is just an awful business for me because I have to go around and introduce people I don’t even know in the first place so I usually just mumble something like “Mister Flibbinflam meet Mister Hasselflap”. If I do it right both pirates be so confounded that I have time to sneak away to Continue Reading

The hidden ale-yard known as Communion  has become a favorite ending spot for our crew over the past several years. Better yet, it has allowed us to keep the One True PiratePalooza as a walking crawl from start to finish. Since this time last year the owners decided to convert Communion to an event space, so this time around I have been forced to dip into my chest to cover costs associated with Continue Reading

Like many of you, I feel that my friends would be more interesting if they liked the exact same things that I like. Toward that end I have prepared ten easy techniques you can use to convince them to like your stuff, collected from the many stories I have heard from my crew and from my own voluminous record of encounters with the constables. I take great reward in sharing these tips with you, as they will ultimately make you more like me in the long run. For this example I will use a movie as the thing I want my friends to like, but it could be anything from Continue Reading

It’s all they talk about. There’s a few things that really get them really really cranked up: things like Death Pool, that fancy lad John Barleyman in his super-short Continue Reading

Maui Shocks Festival Crowd

There’s an unofficial tradition among the cast at the Georgia Renaissance Festival that Memorial Day is observed as a “prank day” for tweaking costumes, characters, storylines, and songs ever so slightly as to entertain each other in order to survive the final leg of a brutal 3-day run. These minor alterations usually go unnoticed by patrons of the festival, but they provide the cast with tremendous entertainment, a welcome distraction from the scorching heat, dusty streets, and occasional deluge and lightning storm.  In my opinion the undisputed “winner” of GARF’s 2017 Prank Day was Estaban Diego de Castille who showed up as Continue Reading
