It's funny.  Laugh. 3

Well the editors removed the second part of the post where i tried to promote an artist who created a pirate themed album and then told everyone to pirate it. And then they put it on the idle page without even a mention on the main page. Total fail. Oh well, here's what else i had to say in the original submission:

More recently the Celtic musician Marc Gunn, under the pseudonym "Captain Black Jack Murphy" has produced an album of pirate music titled "Pogue Mahone Means Kiss My Arse!" and made free copies available. [irishsong.net] He encourages everyone to support piracy [irishsong.net] by copying the album and sharing it with their friends. Of course if you like what you hear you should donate at that page or buy some of his other music [marcgunn.com] . This is how many Slashdotters say music ought to be done, so how well will it work in practice? (Beware though, these are (mostly) real sea shanties and drinking songs performed acoustically. If you prefer heavily produced music from the modern labels this is not for you! Also, a couple of the songs are definitely NSFW.)
