So it's raining here in Southern California. In the middle of May, wtf?

But here's a fabulous interview (including video!) with Geoffrey Rush from The Telegraph, and here's a little article about the world premier at Disneyland from the New York Times, with a picture that I swear was taken from my seat in the theater!

Two more days!

Speaking of which, I still have [livejournal.com profile] tndixie's ticket for the Thursday marathon at the El Capitan, worth $125, but available at best offer at this point. Comment or email me at geekmama at gmail dot com if you're interested.

Swiping this from [livejournal.com profile] porridgebird , because it's too good not to share -- let's all join in the fun!

Countdown to PotC: On Stranger Tides.  [livejournal.com profile] corrielle  started this over in [livejournal.com profile] potc_discussion . I hope some (or all!) of you will play too, because I'd like to see your answers!

Quoting her now:

Because I'm so excited about the new movie I can't see straight, I thought I'd engage in some nostalgic, fannish naval navel-gazing in the week leading up to the U.S. premiere. Anyone want to join me? If so, here are the questions I thought we might use...

Day 1. What were your first impressions of PotC back when you first saw CotBP?
Day 2. What's a cool/interesting/favorite piece of pirate/navy/PotC stuff you own?
Day 3. If you make fanworks, link to a piece of your work that you're especially proud of. If you don't make fanworks, link to a piece you're especially proud of finding. ;-)
Day 4. What are your hopes for the new film? What are you most looking forward to?
Day 5. If you could bring one character from the first three movies back for OST, who would you choose? How would you write him or her in?
Day 6. Tell about a favorite/funny/happy memory of your involvement in the PotC fandom.
Day 7. I'm assuming we'll all see the movie somewhere around here… Describe your initial reaction in 100 words or less.

Me again: Read the whole thread here...

ETA: My reply to day 1's question is on [livejournal.com profile] potc_discussion here.
dwgm: Kimi Birds (Jack - On Stranger Tides)
My first Jack/Angelica offering, exactly 100 words using an element of their backstory that's mentioned in one of the trailers. Uses the current drabble challenge prompt at [livejournal.com profile] blackpearlsails...

...or five days, anyway.  So much fun, and greatly enhanced  by the presence of my pirate pals, [livejournal.com profile] tndixie and [livejournal.com profile] compassrose7577  who flew out to Southern California to join me.

Lots of big pics under the cut! )

It was a pirate's life for me last week, meeting my buddies [livejournal.com profile] tndixie and [livejournal.com profile] compassrose7577 in the real OC for a few days of beach, fabulous food, and piratey fun at Disneyland. We played in the parks and Saturday night we attended the world premier of On Stranger Tides, walking the same black carpet that the stars did. It was an amazing night, and I have lots of pix, just haven't had time to get them ready to post yet as there was a big party for me (!!) on Sunday when we got home and after that I was too dead tired. So pix tonight, and if there is anything you want to know about the movie, ask away!

Speaking of pix, though, [livejournal.com profile] corrielle went and stood on the sidelines at the black carpet event and has an entertaining report and lots of pics here, go check it out! She got way closer to the stars than I did, I must say.

*hugs you all*

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] djarum99 for sending me the link to this. Saw it the other night on TV and it's pretty interesting...

From the MiceChat website...

"Over in New Orleans Square, preparation has begun for the May 7th premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides. The footprint for the grandstands is a bit different this time around, as they will have to fit more audience into an area closer to the center of the screen due to the 3D nature of the film. This will result in a more vertical layout."

More pics in here! )

In other news, stayed up until 4:30 a.m. watching the royal wedding, was there ever such a crazy, romantic, and hopeful event? But maybe that could be said for all weddings, to some extent. I think it's amazingly generous of them to share their experience and their happiness with all of us. The pageantry! The hats! The music! The carriages! The beauty of the bride and groom! And the familiar and ever-new words of the ceremony. Well worth losing a few hours sleep to be there with them.

And now, we're off to the Getty Villa, it's a gorgeous spring day, the last of my Easter Vacation.

*hugs you all*

My sympathy and good thoughts to all who have been in the path of the bad weather down south. *hugs you all*

On a lighter note, here are some more PotC4 posters, and if you go to the original article there are great big high rez versions.

I know that [livejournal.com profile] djarum99 and [livejournal.com profile] 0nthe0therhand (among others, perhaps?) recently posted new OST videos, too, but LJ is not letting me access them to repost here at this time, wtf? Anyway, many interesting bits in those, well worth checking out. J/A? )
dwgm: Kimi Birds (Jack - On Stranger Tides)
Here's a short behind-the-scenes clip featuring one of the locations in Hawaii (and quite a bit of JD/CJS)...

And three more posters, which shuffle the graphics that were in the previous ones...

Arrrr! )

And thank you dear [livejournal.com profile] djarum99 for finding this lovely graphic which I feel I must repost for the sake of posterity, another "Disney Dream" portrait by Annie Leibovitz, this time featuring our favorite pirate captain...

Disney Dreaming indeed! )
dwgm: Kimi Birds (Jack - On Stranger Tides)
Dear piratey friend [livejournal.com profile] aletheiafelinea posted some great stuff today, a new "making of" YouTube video...

oooh, lots of Barbossa! )

And another poster, this time featuring the Queen Anne...

Pretty! And dramatic! )

And a rather spoilery article and interview with Jerry Bruckheimer and Rob Marshall.

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] aletheiafelinea, for pointing out all the goodies!

That Blackbeard is a scary fellow...

And here are two more lovely Jack ones, under the cut...

Oh, and rumor has it that May 7th is the Red Carpet Event at Disneyland. That's two weeks before it hits the theaters, which is what they did for the other three movies. Can't find any details except that they're closing the park at 5 P.M. that day, which they wouldn't do for anything less than something spectacular. If we can go by past experience, anyone hanging out by the red carpet will be able to stay to see the invited guests arrive. No word on any charity fundraiser invitations being available to the public as there were at the premier of AWE.

Anybody planning on being there, or at the May 19th marathon at the El Capitan?

Slight spoiler! -- interesting for those of us who ponder PotC timelines.

No pics today, but from heatworld, among other sources...

Oh dear God, could Johnny Depp really make us love him any more than we already do?! After his Captain Jack Sparrow primary school visit, barely ten days ago, we didn't think it was possible. Only now he's gone and done something just as kind-hearted...

With the British weather taking a turn for the worse this last week, the cast and crew currently working on the Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in Greenwich have been gnashing their teeth against the cold and the rain.

On seeing their plight, 47-year-old Johnny Depp apparently dipped his hand into his own pocket and coughed up £40,000 on new coats to keep everyone warm and dry whilst they were at work. The actor reportedly bought 500 waterproof jackets, priced at £80 each, when the cold snap struck.

"Johnny paid out of his own pocket for all 500 of us to have a nice warm waterproof," an insider told The Sun, "It's a great morale boost and another example of why he is one of the nicest people in Hollywood."

One of the nicest men in Hollywood? Why yes, he is. *sigh* Just what has he got up his piratey sleeve next though? If it involves saving puppies and kittens then that's it, we'll be at the front of the queue banging down his door...

And Keith Richards is confirmed to be reprising his role as Teague.

He just has too much fun with that role. These are from filming last week, and there are more at HeyYouGuys.


More, and somewhat spoilery, under the cut! )

Too much fun!!


From The Telegraph.co.uk...
Nine-year-old Beatrice Delap did just that by writing to Captain Jack Sparrow, star of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. "We are a bunch of budding young pirates. Normally we're a right handful but we're having trouble mutinying against the teachers. We'd love it if you could come and help," she wrote.

To the astonishment of staff at Meridian primary school in Greenwich, south-east London, Captain Jack arrived in the form of Johnny Depp, the actor who plays him. Depp is filming the latest Pirates of the Caribbean instalment at the nearby Old Royal Naval College.

More under the cut, with a YouTube video, and lots of Captain Jack pics from the day before... )

ETA: Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] aletheiafelinea for pointing out these videos and pix...

So sorry I've been neglecting LJ (though I'm up to chapter 7 on the next Harry & the Pirate fic -- whoot!), you all may have seen these already, but just in case you haven't, here goes.

Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] aletheiafelinea, here are two links to some fabulous and slightly spoilery pix...

... and one picture twittered recently by Mr. Bruckheimer.

Yay Pirates!!!
