Quantcast

Those hard-drinking pirates of Alestorm (Napalm Records labelmates with my boys, Product of Hate), have docked their tipsy ship near Orlando, Florida to begin recording their fifth full-length album. The announcement went up on Facebook earlier this week, but just hit my inbox here at HQ this evening, and thus I'm sharing a statement from the band below!

Ahoy, Mateys! Since everyone is talking like a pirate today, I'm highlighting some pirate-based fun here on THE ROCK FATHER! Did you know that PLAYMOBIL has an entire Playmobil Pirates collection? Well, they sure do, and the pinnacle item of that collection has to be the Radio-Controlled Pirate Ship with Underwater Motor. While we don't personally have one here (nowhere to really use it proper), there's a few videos on YouTube like this one that show off just how cool this ship really is...

It is officially National Talk Like A Pirate Day here at Rock Father HQ (though I probably will not be talking like a pirate), so I'm gonna share a couple of sea-worthy goodies for all of you, starting with "Pirate Girls" - the new single and music video from THE BOO HOO CREW. Clint Perry and the crew have been cranking the family-friendly Pirate rock for a few years now, so it's just right that they're back with more for 2014. Check out the video below...

Sitting down with Producer Jenni Magee-Cook and Director Peggy Holmes at DisneyToon Studios in Glendale, California back in February, there was an overwhelming sense of joy and enthusiasm as they begun discussing the creation of THE PIRATE FAIRY, the latest installment of the Disney Fairies franchise, which hit Blu-ray and DVD this week. "I wanted to tell a story about a girl that makes a mistake," explains Holmes in discussing Zarina, the "Pirate Fairy" herself (voiced by MAD MEN's Christina Hendricks), and a new resident of Pixie Hollow that leads Tinker Bell and friends to a world not previously-explored in the series: Never Land.

On April 1, DisneyToon Studios (the folks behind PLANES) will release THE PIRATE FAIRY on Blu-ray and DVD. Serving as both a sequel to other films in the Tinker Bell & Disney Fairies Series, and a prequel to the Disney classic PETER PAN, THE PIRATE FAIRY mashes up some fan favorites into a fun new adventure that I recently caught a preview screening of during a trip to DisneyToon in L.A. To celebrate the release THE ROCK FATHER and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have teamed-up to give you a chance to win a copy on Blu-ray combo pack!

Last year, CLINT PERRY & THE BOO HOO CREW celebrated International Talk Like A Pirate Day with the release of their album, SHAKE YOUR PIRATE BOOTY (which I reviewed here). So how did they follow it up for 2013? Well, since TODAY is International Pirate Day... it's only appropriate that they've released an actual song called "Talk Like A Pirate Day!" Stream the new track below, and if you dig it - pick it up on iTunes. Yo Ho Me Hearties!
