Pirate Weekend at Rockin Robin Sim March 6th and 7th - Stacey Cardalines Reporting...


Who doesn't love pirates? Pirates live outside the law, they do whatever they wish, they quaff rum, they loot, they pillage, they burn, they shoot cannons, they carry off fair maidens... sure beats slingin' eggs at the IHOP, huh?

Piracy is a perfectly normal reaction to the inequities of an unjust system. What society won't give you, you take. You can let Captain Ahab feeds you to some whale, or you can Pirate Up and get some booty. Simple enough choice for this journalist. When life gives you lemons, grab a cutlass.

"Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats."

Most people love pirates. OK, people victimized by pirates don't love pirates. Tom Hanks doesn't like pirates. I do believe that Captain Kidd was gibbetted. Everyone else likes pirates, though.

With that in mind, we strongly urge you to attend the Pirate Weekend this weekend at the Rockin' Robin sim. You can dress like a pirate, talk like a pirate, behave like a pirate... what's not to like?

There will be pirate-themed entertainment all weekend, 24 hours on Saturday and 22 on Sunday. The sim is also good for SL photographers who want a tropical'll notice that even a hack like me got a few good pics.

The cannons there work, so feel free to let off a few shots if the party gets rowdy. That's a faux pas for most parties, but not one with pirates at it. A pirate party doesn't really start until someone fires a cannon.

Here's a note that I got from one of the pirates, and when a pirate asks you to pass something along, you do so. Otherwise, you end up walking the plank. Shiver me timbers!

AHOY MATES! By popular request, Rockin' Robin's annual SALUTE TO PIRATES has been changed to a weekend event and will be held all day Saturday, Mar. 6th and Sunday, Mar. 7th. Dress as a pirate or wench (or casual) and join us in a tropical island setting for some great party music and fabulous live shows on both days. Come and shiver your timbers Rockin' Robin style!

Sat.: 9 am - Wolfie Moonshadow, 5 pm - Koko Incognito, 6 pm - Urban Harvy, 7 pm - Shaye Dezno
Sun.: 9 am - Austin Moores, 4 pm - Billy Talon, 5 pm - Inkaku, 6 pm - Bill Tigerpaw, 7 pm - Hogan Baily
