POTC 5... More news!

   So I found this video on YouTube, about POTC 5! Which we are anxiously awaiting to come out in 2017. Yes, that's two years from now, but hush. Watch, and enjoy. And bravo that Will and Barbossa are coming back. But where is Elizabeth??!! She just HAST TO come back. Any way, I'll shut it, and let you watch the blasted video!

Recently (well, a few days ago) Abby posted some pictures of our AG dolls dressed in PotC attire. (we are also American Girl doll fans:) I have a few more pictures of costumes and scenes in a folder, so I thought I'd post those too.

Will Turner

This is my Jack Sparrow, (Abby's really turned out much better:)

Giselle and Scarlett

A familiar scene

Elizabeth walking the plank (The doll's name also happens to be Elizabeth)

When Jack finds his ship gone at the end of the 3rd movie

At Tia Dalma's (notice, the jar of dirt)

An undead canary

A treasure chest.

So those are some more PotC pictures featuring dolls. (Apologies if dolls are not your thing).

Drink up me hearties ho what?

     I know, weird post title, but I didn't know what to call it, so shush now. Thank you. I was browsing youtube, and came across the POTC medley,  that is made completely by the human voice... It's pretty cool, so ya. Oh, and don't the girls have the swellest costumes?

Savvy Ho!

The title is really irrelevant, but I must do a post since I appear to have fallen overboard somewhere this summer, deserted island full of rum don't you know? Got back strapped on to two sea turtles mate! Not really, but hey let's stop rambling and get on with it! I really only have a few pictures to share (pinterest stuff)... which is why I am shamelessly typing like a marooned fool (sheepish grin). Before I decrease your IQ with my musings (or lack thereof)... roll the bloody pictures already!!! (*heed my warning, I am in a most uproarious state of mind, this is not a coherent post*)

I totally agree

It's crazy


You'd better agree!


I Loooooove this song picture!

'scuse mah lang pic, love the quote!

  That somehow makes sense.

The determination in her eyes!

Must-have necklace pendant

I know a certain-someone who uses this quote 

ah, pinterest

If you are asking why this is funny, I will be shouting "Have you even watched the movie?!!" 

So that is my long nonsense post (fandom never did make sense so there) Savvy?

Something for your amusement!

    I don't know if you have heard of them, but their is a youtube channel called Honest Trailers. (Honest Trailers makes movie themed trailers that make fun of certain movies.. ) They are really funny, although some of them can be a bit crude or inapropirate.. But this one that knocks POTC is really funny, so I thought I would share it with you. I know, it may seem contradictory for a POTC fanblog to post a video that makes fun of it... But oh well.

Let's take a look at: Mermaids

Here are some of the things we know about the mermaids in "On stranger tides".

The mermaids are half woman half fish with long powerful tails and though they look more human than any sea creature they are lethal predators, though beautiful and enchanting they use this for evil and are cannibals.

We know that the Mermaids are attracted to the surface by man-made light and sailors singing. 

They lure sailors into the water to their death. This quote from Barbossa:
"Aye. Mermaids, Sea ghouls, devil fish, dreadful in hunger for flesh of man"
Reveals that mermaids eat their prey once they have dragged it to the depths, in 
this case unfortunate sailors.

Their true nature reveals fangs and cat eyes (scary image mate!) Their skin would also gain more scales, this would only happen underwater. Once above water they would take on human form as well as gain legs if fully out of  water.

It appears that Mermaids need to breathe air, I don't quite get that. Syrena might have been trying to escape as they often seemed to carry her through shallow pools, however she only gasps for air after Philip opens the case a bit. It could be that she breathes like a fish and fresh water would have helped as well.

We find out from Philip that apparently Mermaids are the descendants of those people who were shut out of the ark. (This raises a host of other questions, but I will save that for another time.)

They gain legs on land. It is not clear if they have the ability to walk as well, Syrena is unable to but this could be due to Philip stabbing her fin earlier.

The Mermaids have superhuman strength, they are able to break through a wooden boardwalk with their bare hands and in large enough numbers they can take down a ship.

Mermaids can survive in the water and on land, but when partly out of the water and trapped in mermaid form they slowly dry out and die.

A mermaids tear was valuable but hard to come by. A mermaids tear was needed for the fountain of youth ritual, but as they are tough and willful creatures it is likely that they will sooner die than cry. Some mermaids like Syrena were too tough for tears of sadness but were able to cry a tear of joy which were said to be more potent.

A Mermaid's kiss will protect a sailor from drowning, this explains how Philip can live with Syrena underwater.

Mermaids also seem to possess some supernatural powers, Syrena tells Blackbeard "All will die even you, soon I hear" Syrena also handed Jack the chalices saying "Do not waste my tear" suggesting that she sensed or knew Angelica was dying.

And despite how evil most of the "Sisters of the Sea" are, there appear to be some who are capable of  loving and doing good.

What think ye of Mermaids? Are ye as fascinated by these mythical creatures as I?

Tales if the Code: Wedlocked

Have you ever heard of the Pirates of the Caribbean prequel? I discovered it a few years ago (and was excited of course) this 7 and a half minute long prequel to "The curse of the Black Pearl" attempts to answer some questions raised in the first movie.

Enjoy the video!

Now here are the things explained. Why Cotton had his tongue cut out. why Giselle and Scarlett greeted Jack with a slap (nice rhyme eh?) and why Jack's boat was sinking in his opening scene.

Why we are so happy that Will is returning for POTC 5

   Wow. That has got to be the worlds longest title... Okay. So this post is to follow up the one Alicia did, mentioning that Will is going to be back in POTC 5. I'm just going to list the reasons why that is so amazing, and then elaborate.

1. He's awesome.
Ok, so that's not much of a reason, but it should count, because he is awesome.

Seriously, look at his epic hat!!

2. He is not overly funny.
That may not seem like a good thing... But, Jack is funny and all, but to much of him, and he just gets annoying. That's why POTC 4 wasn't as good, because there were just to many Jack one liners, and the movie was lacking the drive and get-it-done mentality that Will, (and Elizabeth) had. Cue his famous line:
                                      "That's not good enough!"

3. He is a good fighter.
Will is awesome at fighting, and he actually knows how to run!! *gasp* And no, I'm not trying to knock Jack, but Will can run better them him...

4. He is captain of the Flying Dutchmen.
Uh huh. And since he isn't cruel like Davy Jones, he will use that power for good, not evil!  Epicness!!

Okay.. Why is he leaning on the part of the railing that has a hole in it??

5. We missed him.
Ya, we missed him in number four. Much.

6. He has common sense.
That is a good asset, isn't it? He is able to think in tight situations, and adapt to any circumstance.

Okay, except for that. Not smart bud..

7. He is willing to work with a wide variety of people.
I appreciate that he is willing to break Jack out of jail, and not be prejudiced because he's a pirate.
Random gif...

8. He is loyal
I love how hard he tries to save his dad. He cares so much about his father, which is cool to see.
He is also faithful to Elizabeth, which is awesome.

Because this picture??!!

9. He is an important character.
Will helps the movie have a much more diverse range of characters. (Which always makes a story better, in my humble opinion.)

10. He is romantic.
Ok, so that doesn't have anything to do with #5, because Elizabeth, so far, isn't in it. :( :(
But, it's true, so I had to put it down. He is a very good looking, romantic pirate. ;)
I mean seriously..

Uh huh.
 And the fact that he proposed to her in the middle of a battle, in the pouring rain, is pretty romantic to. (besides the fact that they both could have been killed during the wedding ceremony.) 

And now some random funny pictures.
Orlando Bloom on set

Hee hee!! I love the look on Will's face in this picture!! 
In case you didn't know, Orlando Bloom also played Legolas, in The Lord of the Rings. 
(Legolas is the guy with long blond hair...)

Well, that's all folks!!
