Please, pray for the families that lost loved ones yesterday in the shooting. I can't imagine the horror of having to loose someone you care about in that way.
Now on to happier things:
I was on You Tube and came across this woman's cover of POTC songs. Isn't her voice amazing!
Also, here's a picture I stumbled across on Facebook.
It totally fits me, because those are all of my fandoms!!!!!!!
Yes, I know, I'm the worst "blog upkeep person" ever, but I'm studying for finals and then I have Christmas break, so then I'll have time to do stuff. And you may get a podcast soon! I have the Facebook page up, but as I'm the only one with a FB account, I need to get some other Admins. Comment if you are willing, please!

Hey guys! It's Syrena the Mermaid! I know it's not my turn, and this is in the middle of the week but this is a special blogpost! :D I'm here to tell you about the new attraction at Disney Hollywood Studios, "The Legend of Captain Jack sparrow." It's going to be this long walk through thing that's super detailed with a bunch of POTC stuff! The only down side of it is that--well--it's a bit...little kidish...in a sense. Ok, well, not completely, see, the effects were amazing--as was Johnny Depp's performance (duh.) But ah, the talking skull that tells you to do stupid stuff is kind of weird, and I hate it when attractions aren't true to the show...
See what I mean? Super cool--yet super lame...I wish they had left the weird skull guy out and done something different...then the whole Davy Jones thing? really? They do realize that he died in the third movie because his heart was stabbed, right? But on the good side, the effects were awesome, and so was Johnny Depp...
Actually, I want to start with a picture that Quartermaster sent me this morning:
Yep, says everything about me...
But, aside from that, I was going through my iPad and heres some pictures I fell like sharing:
Well, I think it's legit! Not like I ship it or anything, that would be weird! But it's funny.
Then there's this one ;)
Because my main job for The Black Pearl Letters is upkeep of the site, what would you like to see? Movie reviews? Fan videos? Guest posts? We are going to continue our podcast, but I'm the only one with a Skype, so we all have to be together to record. Also, we're going to have our first fan art/fanfic contest thing coming up within the next few months, so be aware! our theme will just be POtC, nothing fancy. We could have a Facebook page, I guess. I dont know, sorry, just throwing out random options. Just comment with what ever you would like to see on the site and the BPL crew will work on it!
This is pretty much my favorite deleted scene in POTC! WHY DID THE STUPID WRITERS (they're not stupid, they're ingenious) EVER DELETE IT!!!! It's so epic! It gets a little more into Jack Sparrow's character I think, and it shows a sort of friendly side of him for minute there...sigh...they could have easily kept it in by simply cutting out one of the Will/Liz scenes (way too many of those.)
Hello friends and followers of The Black Pearl Letters!
I, Mysticalshadow, have been searching the web for Pirates of the Caribbean randomness, and while searching photo's of Jack Sparrow being awesome, I came upon some pictures that were...not so awesome. Trying to make Jack Sparrow into a cute cartoon character is just humiliating. Please understand I have nothing against cartoon drawings or anime, but to draw Jack Sparrow as a cute cartoon character?? Alright, lets get something staraight here! JACK SPARROW IS NOT A ADORABLE LITTLE PUPPY DOG FACED BABY OR SOMETHING! He's a pirate that does epic things that a little baby would definitely not do! I mean, I have to admitt, some of the pictures are pretty adorable, but please don't turn Jack Sparrow into a baby!! That is just too far! Not all the photo's are of him as a baby, but, just see for yourself...
I think after those I have earned myself the right to say, "WHAT!?" I...I...I...poor Jack Sparrow...
Hey there fellow humans!!! Quartermaster speaking.
So, as you may have guessed from the title of this post, I have found, from the depths of the internet, 2 things that you may find interesting. :D
#1: I found this interview...it made me laugh
"No, we are totally different. There is nothing I can relate to in Captain Jack whatsoever," Depp says obviously joking about his now signature role. Becoming somewhat serious he adds, "Any character you play there is a part of you goes into that in terms of the ingredients of making this, whatever, stew. There is definitely a part of me in Captain Jack and now, fortunately or unfortunately, there is a great part of Captain Jack in me as well. Basically, I can't shake him. He won't leave me alone. He keeps showing up at odd times. In fact, he showed up this morning when I was getting my kids ready for school. I had to shoo him away."
Hehehehe!!! How amusing. #2: News from Johnny Depp on POTC 5/6!!! "There is a very clever idea in terms of 'Pirates 5 and 6,'" Depp reveals. "We're actually going to shoot them on the ride. Actually going around in a circle. Sort of like Andy Warhool's 'Sleep.' Just close ups on everyone." Mwahahahaha!!!! Doesn't that sound fascinating? I thought it did. Here is the link to that website I got those from so I don't have to go through the trouble of sourcing it: http://www.hitfix.com/articles/johnny-depp-suggests-shooting-pirates-of-the-caribbean-5-and-6-on-the-disney-ride-itself ~The Quartermaster~
Ok, everyone, it's time for our first FanArt/FanFic competition!
This time we won't do any special themes, other than POTC. The winners... they'll get something, probably to be a guest on our podcast or something internet related... you also get bragging rights ;).
It has to be your OWN work (I would like to see a watermark/ signature on the bottom)
NOTHING INAPPROPRIATE you can figure out where the limit is, just nothing above a PG rating (so that gives you a lot of room if you've seen any PG movies recently). If you think it might be going to far, don't worry, send it in and we'll decide for you.
If you use a reference photo, I would like to see that, too.
Other useful things to know
You can use whatever medium you want. It can be a hand drawn picture or a Photoshop of many pictures or a 3D image. Whatever you want.
(Photoshop) You can use other peoples art/pictures, just as long as you source them

Please, please, please dont send in a 42 chapter FanFic. Just do a one-shot or something short (just 2 or 3 pages).
Other useful things to know
If you already published your FanFic on another side, you can still send it in.
Cross-overs are allowed
You can draw a picture to go with it, but the picture will not help or hinder your fanfic in any way. It only counts as fan art if you submit it in the fan art section. (Tell us that it goes with your fanfic)
The end of On Stranger Tides is a bit nerve racking I'd say, because it shows Angelica smiling creepily as she picks up this voodoo doll that just washed up on the shore. This voodoo doll can be used to kill or torture Jack Sparrow!! And at the moment, I think Angelica is a bit mad, to say the least, at Jack for dumping her on a deserted island. What do you think she is going to do to Jack? Drown him? Hug him? Stab him? Kiss him on the cheek? Choke him? Braid his dreadlocks? Rip him...that's wierd...I wonder what that would look like to just start ripping for "no reason" in the middle of the street... Anyways, comment below if you have any idea's on what she might do to get revenge!
Syrena here! Ok, I have heard a couple of people say they ddn't like POTC 4 becuase it was "So different from the others.." but the thing is, there are going to be six movies...what if they all had the exact same feel to them? We would get bored of it right?
Ugh! I hate it whe people say they didn't like it....POTC 4 was amazing!
When people say they don't like POTC four, I react like this, "Wow, you're crazy..." but in my mind I'm reacting more like this:
So earlier today I talked to the other girls about what we wanted to do with the club and the blog. The reason not much has happened with either is because we've only had two meetings, due to me being out of town for the month (the ship is in my back yard). The month before I left, Syrena was in the south (I think Louisiana), so we couldn't get everything we wanted to done in that meeting (we ended up watching Doctor Who). Then all of the other times we tried to get all four of us together something came up and do that never happened. We're planning on having an other meeting next week.
But back to the point: we are a blog by the fans, for the fans (I seriously think I'm copying that, but I don't know we're from!). We want to do things like having you (our wonderful followers :)) submit fan fiction and fan art. We may go somewhere with this, maybe not.
I can't say any more about our plans until the girls and I talk it over.
PS. Any Doctor Who fans out there? What did you think about the S7 premier! *amyroryoswindoctorfeels*
Hello! Syrena Again!
So, they started filming Pirates of the Caribbean this summer! We've all heard the rumours about how Orlando wants to return but we realy don't know how realistic that idea is...The Black Pearl was cut down and re-painted as Queen Annes Revenge in POTC 4 so they need to build a new one or build it back...so...yeah, we obviously know Jack's returning with Barboasa, Angelica, Syrena, and Philip. So....yeah....that's pretty much all I've got, none of the plot has been publicly revealed.
Hey everyone, Syrena the Mermaid here,
You know, according to the charts hardly any of you have viewed this blog within the past month...but I don't blame you, because none of the three other writers of this blog ever seem to update it!!! Upset? No, I'm not upset, why would you ever think that? Pf! Nah! Of course I'm not upset! So why am I posting this random rant about how they're not posting anything you ask? Well, because...if all of you guys commented on Shaak-Ti's other blog, telling her that she should update this one, maybe she will! :) So then you guys will have something to read and comment on. And now, so I won't be hipocritical, I myself will post something random....
While in Venice a few days ago, we took a gondola ride at night. When we went under the bridges, it totally made me think of POTC! The light would reflect off of the water onto the bottom of the bridge.
Check out these epic photos of these old people that looked like characters from POTC! Maybe, just maybe, these guys were REAL!!! See, a long, long time ago, these guys were really alive doing this piratey stuff, and the stories of their horrible selves were passed down, generation to generation. Yeah, it's true! Mwahaha!!
Hi! Syrena the Mermaid here! (again) sorry this blog has been neglected lately because I have been gone for six weeks then I was incredibly busy...as for Shaak Ti, Mysticalshadow, and Quartermaster...well...you can ask them why they haven't posted anything in two months! (Shaak Ti is looking over my shoulder saying that she just didn't feel like it) but anyway, speaking of Shaak Ti, she's going to be in Italy for like a month! Cool for her, sad for us! :( So, she better post pictures and stuff from Italy! Anyway, ciao!
Hi random peoples!
We're four people who are obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean and we're using Shaak Ti's account for this blog. We love all of the movies and are waiting anxiously for the next one. So...this is our epic blog! Our names are:
Syrenathemermaid (I'm the one writing this)
So yeah...that's us. We are crew members of the Black Pearl. If you are a POTC fan, please join our blog! By the way, we're all girls...but like...we don't care if you're a guy, or a monkey, or an undead skeleton...ok, then we might care, but you get the point.
