24 January 2010 - 09:14 PMEarly June?
Sounds like fun, you know I'll be there for Friday Night Camp out, with the Moonshine and the Fire cuz that's how I Roll. Any Chance we can Solstice in town for this one? And I'll see what I can do about getting a good showing out of the newly reformed High Defiance.
21 June 2009 - 03:16 AMOnce Again Steeel Reserve put on one hell of a game. For those that no-showed because of the weather, You blew it. it was sunny and gorgeous all day. The Decepticons, despite being shorthanded as far as Teams went, still pulled out all the stops. Nyxx retained her undefeated streak as Megatron.
To My Fellow Decepticons, it was an honor. For future Transformers games, Cartman, you can list me, And Lillith as Decepticon for life.
And Now. Off to Texas.
12 May 2009 - 05:54 PMYou know damn well I'll be there, though I think this time around I'm goin Decepticon.
I'll get with Shane and Fluff and hopefully won't be dealing with a lung infection this year so there will be FIRE.

Aye, that you may. But you'll be hard pressed to do so.
I've been doing reenactments as a 17th century privateer near two decades, it's how I got the Nom De Guerre in the first place. Our group (the Free Men Of the Sea) have worked for History Channel, Learning Channel and A&E doing educational entertainment. Chanties were as important aboard ship as knowing how to tie a knot and our crew can perform 4 hours without repetition.
As with any crew, there has to be a chantyman to lead the rythym whether long haul, short haul or capstan. Guess who?
But there are always new versions, in a lot of old songs the same lyrics will show up for different pulls.
I'd love to hear what you have.
Here's a historical tidbit for ya.
What most people know as the song "Dead Mans' Chest" is not the original.
What you hear today are the words to "Billy Bones' Fancy" published in 1883 by Robert Louis Stevenson as part of the original Treasure Island and left out of most later versions.
What's the most widely known sea chanty of all time?
"Sit right back and you'll hear a tale.
A tale of a fateful trip...."
<add: Count me in for food! >
I know a few of the Free Men of the Sea. Been working with John McNiff for the better part of 14 years. I'm a Renaissance Faire performer by trade. Actor/singer/stage combatant/Jouster/armorsmith......
I think you and I are gonna get along great.
