Incredible Post-apocalyptic Pirate Coat Stuns Fans

Post-apocalyptic Pirate Coat by Scott Johnson

We recently caught up with Karol Bartoszynski, one of the original founders of Wasteland Weekend, to discuss an incredible pirate coat designed and fabricated by his friend Scott Johnson. The coat is so imaginatively conceived, so well crafted, and so immaculately distressed that it could have stepped right off the screen of the most recent installment of the Mad Max series. They’ve been kind enough to let us share some photos of the coat and to provide some back story on how it came to be. Note: while this coat may be “one-of-a-kind”, Scott has plenty more ideas where this one came from! You can reach him through his Facebook page Squirrel Wurx.

Rennies around the world swear by Captain Drew's new DirtBlocke™

New DirtBlocke™ product is set to revolutionize a weird Medieval fetish

On Tuesday morning the old space pirate known as Captain Drew made an unscheduled presentation to the joint House and Senate budget hearings for the 155th Georgia General Assembly to request funding for a “new brand of sunblock made exclusively for rennies” this product is apparently slated to go on sale from the trunk of his car later this year at the Georgia Renaissance Festival in Fairburn, Georgia.

Onyx Consulting Wins Service Rights for rPlank

PiratePalooza.com is pleased to announce that Captain Drew has awarded the exclusive worldwide service rights for the rPlank™ to Onyx Consulting of Atlanta. In an entirely unrelated matter, Onyx Consulting has returned as a premiere sponsor of Captain Drew’s Official 7th Annual PiratePalooza PubCrawl & PubSing!! Not only is Onyx Consulting the only authorized service provider for the rPlank™ on your planet, they also be an Apple Authorized Service center and a generally clever group of boffins who quietly solve IT problems and avoid pompous self-promotion (unlike Captain Drew). This fall Onyx will be opening their 3rd location, near Georgia Tech, at 1634 Northside Drive between Holmes and Belmeade. What was formerly a pet hospital will now be a computer hospital, so don’t be afraid to take your beloved family computer in for a heartworm check or a nice shampoo. Best of all, for those without a lot of money to spend, Onyx has established the Onyx Consulting Foundation (“The OCF”); a non-profit which sells affordably priced refurbished computer equipment, with all proceeds going toward the Dekalb Rape Crisis Center & The YMCA Partner With Youth Program, two very worthwhile causes! (note: Onyx requires all pirates wishing to have their rPlank™ repaired to pay in advance)

Captain Drew Loses Alien Technology During Drunken Bender

Lost Thingy

Last night, while celebrating an imminent announcement regarding this year’s Official PiratePalooza™ Pubcrawl and Pubsing, Captain Drew lost a very important piece of space pirate technology. The device was most likely lost at Trader Vic’s or one of 12 other bars that the Captain visited during that evening’s fete. The Captain wishes to keep this alien technology out of his competitors’ hands and is asking you, his fans, to keep an eye out for anything that might look space piratey. As an incentive, the Captain is offering an “as yet to be specified” reward for the return of this technology. He would prefer that “space strippers find it because that would be cool!!! Wouldn’t that be cool???” Thank you for your assistance, pirates of Earth.

Captain Drew Endorses Gooble Voice

Captain Drew Endorses Google Voice

Update [Dec 2011] – Captain Drew claims no memory of the following and ordered his Gooble Voice number be removed from the website

BREAKING NEWS – Today Captain Drew announced in a press conference at PiratePalooza’s corporate headquarters that he will be teaming with the internet giant Google in a effort to increase awareness of Google’s newest service “Google Voice” and to spur adoption of Captain Drew’s steam-powered rPhone™. Visitors to PiratePalooza.com will now be able to leave messages for the Captain via a handy Google Voice widget in the site’s sidebar, directly below an advertisement for the Captain’s rPhone™ (as featured in the infamous YouTube video “Dairy Wench”).

In what has been described as “the most confrontational press conference since Steve Jobs threw a camera at an intern” Captain Drew rambled for 35 minutes before relieving himself off the front of the stage into a trendy messenger bag carried by one of the reporters. In a fleeting moment of clarity the Captain explained:

“Well I heard tell that there be this incredible [unintelligible] net thing… and that this here Gooble bunch think that they know how to make money from this net [unintelligible] so I aims to get my [expletive] hands on their Gooble booty before any other deck sprawlers lay wind of it. Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble Gooble…..”

The Captain’s speech went on for another 8 minutes before he curled up underneath the lectern and went to sleep.

A technology reporter from WIRED magazine was heard to say “Dudes… don’t expect Gooble to team with Captain Drew anytime soon on [their next product] ‘Google Wave‘… hey, did somebody spill a drink on my bag??
