Gentlemen of Fourtune
I have come across an amazing website called Gentlemen Of Fourtune. It contains a wealth of information about pirates clothing, weapons, ships and other information. The focus is on accuracy for re-enactors and living history groups. The attention to detail is amazing. I especially like their section on period shoes, and how virtually nobody that dresses up like pirates wear shoes that are accurate to the Golden Age. The photo above comes from their website.

Shack friend Jeff Menges let me know about Pirates Magazine the other day. They seem to cover a lot of festivals, news, interviews and history. Its a quarterly and costs $26.00 to subscribe for a year. They say the magazine is available in some major book retailers in the U.S. All of the ads on their site are full of piratey goodness too!

The Shipwrecked Pirate Music Festival
From what I can tell, the Shipwrecked Pirate Music Festival may not be taking place on dry land or at sea, but you can still hear some music in cyberspace. Head on over to the festival's MySpace page for some pirate tunes. Incidentally, festival leader and scurvy pirate Captain Jim Lash happens to be a fan of the Pirate Shack on our feacbook page. Why not become a fan yourself?

Draw A Pirate: Another great blog about pirates
Draw A Pirate is a fantastic blog about pirates (and there aren't many). Some of the drawings appear to be penned by the blog's owner, while others are submitted or gathered from elsewhere. Its not just drawings, there are youtube videos and pirate facts sprinkled in as well. Their logo (a newspaper hat with a skull and crossbones) is so clever it can smartly be filed under "I wish I'd thought of that!"
