i love this pirate song!
10. Pirates
Written by David Byrne © 2004

A distant car, a quiet night
Like starin' at the ceiling
My sleepy eyes, you smell so nice
It's such a funny feeling
Got no idea, what time it is
Delightfully confusing
The trees outside, the morning light
Arrives, like pirates on parade
Surprise, it's pirates on parade

A ray of light, between the blinds
I lie there in a stupor
I hear a thud, and then a flush
Guess it must be the neighbors
I blink my eyes, I laugh inside
Imagine what they're saying
I see your shape and through the night
Here come, those pirates on parade
Ahoy, it's pirates on parade

Through the rough and stormy weather
On a search for buried treasure
There's an island to explore
Ev'ry wave that whispers softly
"Stay in bed, 'cause it's still early"
Dolphins frolic by the shore
And the phone never rings when the pirates are singing

Well there's 16 men on a dead man's chest
In this hallucination
The map we got, x marks the spot
We're following directions
The 7 seas, the balmy breeze
The pleasure of surrender
The end is nigh, the sun is high
It's late, for pirates on parade
Too late, for pirates on parade

Traffic noises down below me
A helicopter circles slowly
Monsters sink into the deep
Mountainous and downy billows
Float among those fluffy pillows
Maybe I'll go back to sleep
And the phone never rings when the pirates are singing

This wicked life
So what's in store behind that velvet curtain?

The night is gone
And the day is here
The stupid sun is shinin'
The moon reflects
Your hair's a mess
It's lovely imperfections

My crew and I
The clear blue skies
Sail on, with pirates on parade
Sail on, you pirates on parade


DON'T YOU JUST WANT TO DIE HAPPY NOW?

Pirate song of the day
I Lit Your Baby On Fire Lyrics




I SPENT ALL MY MONEY ON DRUGS, AND COULDN'T AFFORD TO FLY
I TOOK A GREYHOUND BUS, YOU AND YOUR BRAT SAT NEXT TO ME
IT WOULDN'T SHUT UP, SO I LIT IT ON FIRE
FOR 30 SECONDS IT WAS LOUDER, THEN IT SHUT UP

I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE BABY ON FIRE
I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE BABY ON FIRE
I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE BABY ON FIRE
I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE BABY ON FIRE

YOU CAME BACK FROM THE BATHROOM, AND SMELLED SOMETHING BURNING
YOU REALIZED IT WAS YOUR BABY, AND I STARTED TO LAUGH
YOU ASKED THE DRIVER TO PULL OVER, BUT HE LAUGHED AT YOU TOO
YOU YELLED AT ME, SO I ROSTED SOME MARSMELLOWS ON YOU'RE KID

I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE BABY ON FIRE
I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE BABY ON FIRE
I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE BABY ON FIRE
I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE, I LIT YOU'RE BABY ON FIRE

magnetic fields pirate song
From "in an operetta"


....She will fast be outcast from her castle with nary a friend,
But since she's a princess there's hints of a prince in the end.
She'll enjoy some employ as a boy with her named changed to Pip.
Soon, by gum she'll become the brave captain of some pirate ship....

YARR!
You are The Cap'n!



Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any man that stands between them and the mantle of power. You never met a man you couldn't eviscerate. Not that mindless violence is the only avenue open to you - but why take an avenue when you have complete freeway access? You are the definitive Man of Action. You are James Bond in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. Your swash was buckled long ago and you have never been so sure of anything in your life as in your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off their head if they show any sign of taking you on or backing down. You cannot be saddled with tedious underlings, but if one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.

leprosy
What is leprosy?
Leprosy is a chronic bacterial disease of the skin, nerves in the hands and feet, and lining of the nose. Leprosy is rare in the U.S., but there are several million cases worldwide.

Who gets leprosy?
Anyone can get leprosy, but it is not as easily spread from person to person as previously thought.

How is leprosy spread?
It is still not clear how leprosy is spread, but household and prolonged close contact with a person with leprosy appear to increase the risk of disease. The bacteria are probably spread by contact with the discharges of the nose of a person with the disease. Contaminated objects may also play a role in spreading the bacteria to others.

What are the symptoms of leprosy?
The symptoms of leprosy can be very different depending on what type of leprosy and what part of the body is affected. Some common symptoms include sores on the skin, numbness in the hands and feet, nodules on the body and a blocked/stuffy nose.

How soon after exposure do symptoms appear?
On average it takes from 4 to 8 years for symptoms to appear depending on the type of leprosy.

How long can an infected person spread leprosy?
In most cases, a person will not infect others after three days to three months of being treated, depending on the type of treatment.

How is it diagnosed?
Leprosy is diagnosed by examining a biopsy of the skin.

What is the treatment for leprosy?
Specific antibiotics can be prescribed by a doctor to treat leprosy. Treatment usually involves more than one drug taken for a long time, i.e., months to years.

How can leprosy be prevented?
The best way to prevent the spread of leprosy is early diagnosis and treatment of people who are infected. The disease may also be prevented through handwashing. Household and other close contacts should be seen by a doctor right away and then every year for five years after contact with a person who has the disease. A doctor may prescribe preventive medicine for some contacts.

OMG Pyrate music!!!
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-aye in the morning?

Chorus:
Way hay and up she rises
Patent blocks o' diff'rent sizes,
Way hay and up she rises
Earl-aye in the morning

1. Sling him in the long boat till he's sober,
2. Keep him there and make 'im bale 'er.
3. Pull out the plug and wet him all over,
4. Take 'im and shake 'im, try an' wake 'im.
5. Trice him up in a runnin' bowline.
6. Give 'im a taste of the bosun's rope-end.
7. Give 'im a dose of salt and water.
8. Stick on 'is back a mustard plaster.
9. Shave his belly with a rusty razor.
10. Send him up the crow's nest till he falls down,
11. Tie him to the taffrail when she's yardarm under,
12. Put him in the scuppers with a hose-pipe on him.
13. Soak 'im in oil till he sprouts flippers.
14. Put him in the guard room till he's sober.
15. Put him in bed with the captain's daughter*).
16. Take the Baby and call it Bo'sun.
17. Turn him over and drive him windward.
18. Put him in the scuffs until the horse bites on him.
19. Heave him by the leg and with a rung console him.
20. That's what we'll do with the drunken sailor.

*) A relative of the cat-o-nine-tails

lets have a sing a long by the sea!

i got a pirate horrorscope!
It's your Unbirthday season, Pisces--that upside-down, backwards, yet oddly full-of-grace time halfway between your last birthday and your next. I can't buy each of you an Unbirthday present, but if I could, it would be a gift certificate to the Pirate Supply Store in San Francisco. There you could buy Jolly Roger flags, eyepatches, plundered treasure chests, lessons in how to whistle while eating saltines, tubs of lard (good for hair-styling and skin moisturizing as well as cooking), and a broadside featuring the text, "The Journey of the Fishes Overland." Believe it or not, all these would be quite practical. They'd inspire you to cultivate a devil-may-care mood, which would be perfect during your Unbirthday season. (A Web version of the store is at http://www.826valencia.org/store/, and no, I don't get a kickback.)
