Review: English Caramel from Peacock Tea Room

Special Delivery from Peacock Tea Room

This afternoon I was startled awake by GARF’s village postman, who chucked a package through an open window in my cabin. The package was addressed to me and appeared to be from the man what cooks tea atop the small mountain in that fictitious realm. Being that the role of “village postman” is also fictitious I was overcome by a sense of wariness, so I eyed the envelope for nigh about an hour before deciding to open it. What I found inside will SHOCK YOU Continue Reading

Mark Knopfler Goes Privateering

Album Cover for Mark Knopfler's 2012 album Privateering

I have a confession to make. I was drunk under a barrel when Ye Olde Mark Knopfler released his album Privateering in 2012. In my defense it was a rather large barrel and I was a fair bit turned around. Still, I think it’s worth backtracking to Continue Reading

I was recently rifling through my drawers trying to find my instant rum gun when I was surprised to find a gear-bedecked pin with “ASE1 2017” stamped into the metal. The pin was attached to a card which read “Atlanta Steampunk Exposition 1” and featured a link to the 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
