Dead Man's Chest

Walking a mile in Keith's shoes

Johnny Depp"It seems [Keith] Richards, who Depp famously modeled his character on in 'Pirates of the Caribbean,' likes to have the actor wear his shoes in before putting them on,"...

"The thing with Keith is, he doesn't like things to be too new or obvious. Sometimes you have to leave clothes about the place for him to find, as opposed to just offering them to him." - NY Daily News

Disney's New 'Pirates of the Caribbean' on Movie Screens, the High Seas and Your PC

With the upcoming release of the sequel to the popular 2003 movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Buena Vista Games is giving us a title for the PSP, DS and GBA based on the new film. Although it will follow the movie script fairly closely, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is also going to give players some room for exploring other parts of Jack Sparrow's adventure that are not seen in the screen version. And, the game is scheduled for release about one week before the movie hits theaters.

Down A BarrelDeveloped by Amaze Entertainment, Dead Man's Chest is a third-person action/adventure game that will allow gamers to play Jack Sparrow through the storyline set out in the new movie. Although we have no specific details about the script at this time, if it is anything like the original film it should turn out to be quite exciting. The single player game is set to give players a chance at the full pirate experience, from the disloyalty to the sword dueling and everything in between.

Bit TrickyIn the game, Jack will be capable of traditional strength-based attacks using swords, guns, knives and other tools of the trade. The true experience kicks in when players fight dirty however; on top of these attacks, Jack is also capable of head-butting opponents and kicking them in the nether region (oh, my groin!). Hey, nobody said fighting had to be fair!
Ah HaThe most exciting feature of the single player game, however, is the ability to play through certain events that do no actually appear in the movie. This means that gamers will get the exclusive opportunity to find out what Captain Sparrow does while he is not shown on screen. Hopefully, this will allow for a less-scripted feeling in the single-player campaign and will enhance the storyline. - POTC Web

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

Thank you to The Daily Beast for covering the continuing saga that is the blocking of the word bisexual on the internet. For those without memories like mine, a look back on previous bans of the word bisexual online.

No Apologies for Queer White Tears - 2016 BlaQOUT Keynote

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
