Be there anything more titillating than pirates? They be charming an naughty an perhaps a bit ROUGH. But they be rogue an they live by a CODE an it's a code fer RULEBREAKERS! Aye! I could be a pirate.
So fer the honor o' Talk Like a Pirate Day, I thought I'd share a thought er two on a few o' me favorite pirates...
and bendy in all exactly the right ways.... Then I never could resist a man in eyeliner. You know... Jack is dead sexy, but I really love him even more when he is insanely ridiculous—running from cannibals or doing bizarre escape moves.
Captain Shakespeare has such a hard decision to make... he has the Heart of a Pirate but he feels so PRETTY!!! Neil Gaiman's brainchild, BRILLIANTLY executed by De Niro in Stardust. People who've known me for a while know my soft spot for cross-dressers... especially rulebreaking cross-dressers who are now acting heroic. This character just makes me really happy.
Oh, Captain Mal... Malcolm Reynolds, Captain of the Serenity. Actually, the whole CAST of Firefly totally rocks, but I love Nathan Fillion and his self-deprecating charm. I've said it before and I will say it again. I could watch Fillion fold socks and be happy, but of all his roles, Mal is the best. (though when he's singing about his penis in Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog, that rocks, too) but no... Mal wins, hands down. I actually like his relationship with Kaylee best—it feels sibling like—no sexual tension but the full range of love to annoyance.
So those are me favorite pirates—Be sure to throw in a lot of Arrrrrrrs and Ahoys today!!!
Do you have any favorite pirates?
(Oh, and Happy Birthday, Hermione--we love you!)
