How To Talk Like a Pirate

The Telltale Games team looks forward to this day all year! This Sunday, September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day and as purveyors of a pirate- themed game (Tales of Monkey Island), we d like to give our fans the basics of pirate speech.

Pirate speech has its intricacies, but before diving head first into talking like a pirate you should know some simple pirate jargon, courtesy of our friends at

Ahoy » Hello or hey.
Avast! » Stop and give me (the speaker) attention.
Aye! » Yes, or agreement!
Aye aye! » Yes or agreement just less so than a simple aye.
Arrr! » Yes, agreement, no, di sagreement, ouch, anger, happiness, etc.

Telltale Tip for Facebook users: You can have your Facebook page talk like a pirate! At the very bottom of your page on the left side, click on English US (or whatever language is displayed). When the Select Your Language box appears, click on English; in the drop-down menu, choose English (Pirate) and check your page. Remember, you can change back to your original language any time.

For more pirate lingo, visit the original Talk Like a Pirate Day site.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.

UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
