Pirates of the Caribbean

Well, hello there. :)

I hope everyone's holiday weekend is going swimmingly. I've been working at the studio, but I have tomorrow off to relax, enjoy, paint, and uh, catch up on all those dang dishes in the sink.

I also had the pleasure of going to the movies on Friday night with my brother to see Pirates of the Caribbean III. I loved it. None of these movies have dissapointed me yet (I know a lot of people hated the second one, but I actually really enjoyed it--perhaps because Davy Jones has a frickin' octopus head, so how could I not love it?). Anyway, the third installment is quite the plot-heavy movie (there's a lot of plot in this one--a lot) and I may have to see it at least once more to make sure I got everything, since there's a bazillion subplots and twists in there. And there's so many brilliant Capt. Jack Sparrow scenes that are really quite unconvential for your typical Disney pirate flick. Oh, and did I mention Keith Richards as Jack's dad? Yeeeaaaahhhh.....

I realize that it's getting a lot of weird mixed reviews right now, but trust me. Go see it. The last hour of the movie is amazing and there's a lot of "no way!"-type moments in there as well. I'm a tad bummed that they'll be making more Pirates of the Caribbean installments (3 more now they say? Ay caramba.) only because you really can have too much of a good thing, but oh well. I like pirates. I like Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack. And I'm sure I'll be seeing PotC 6 whenever that comes out as well.

Tomorrow I'm going fishing with my dad and I'm really excited. It's one of those things that always shocks people--they never believe me that I go fishing. A petite girl, with curly hair, who always wears skirts and high-heeled boots. ButI've grown up around boats and on the water, so it's one of those comfort things that reminds me of childhood.

Okay, sorry for no pictures right now, but this is meant as just a quickie update. I'm gonna go plug in a movie and do some painting before heading off to bed.

Here's to a pleasant week ahead for everyone!

Huh. I saw the third movie last night and I was bored to tears. I thought it was horribly lacking in the plot department, the dialog was cheesy, the fight scenes stunk and it was about 1.5 hours too long. Go figure.

Yeah, my brother didn't like it either, citing that he too didn't care for the lack of action. I was pretty forgiving with its faults because I just love pirate movies way too much. :)

Can't believe I'm just now reading this blog! I wore the pirate necklace I bought from you to the Pirates premiere here in Austin. It was so cool to see people in the audience all dressed up for the movie and we even had a pirate band! Keep up the awesome work in your store. And come check out my new store if you get a chance ( I'd love some feedback from an etsy pro!
