It may not be an official national holiday yet; but it’s one of our favorites, for obvious reasons.
In honor of the one day each year when geeks of every stripe lift their voices together and assault their families, co-workers, barristas, and other landlubbers with a hail of “arrrrr”s, we’re once again offering our pirate anthem “The Captain’s Wife’s Lament” as a FREE DOWNLOAD.
Or, if you’d prefer, we can tell ye that YE MUST PAY FOR ALL OUR MUSIC, OR ELSE, and then go ahead and do what ye must.

Arrrr! You will be pleased to know that one of the bands at a pirate-themed pub crawl and pub sing on Saturday covered this song. All the proper AARRRRs were provided by the audience–well, at least by my friend and me and someone else near us.
I wish pirates were better conversationalists. You can’t get far with only “yarrr” and “avast” and “rum” and “wenches”.
Wait, what am I saying. You can get as far as you need to go, with just those things.
