Time for Free Comic Book Day!

Trivia Question: what is the significance of the first Saturday in May?

Answer:

Yes, that’s right. Free Comic Book Day is almost here! Of course this means you need to make plans to visit your local Things From Another World on Saturday, May 5th. The good folks at TFAW have put together a stunning collection of comic book creators, who will be at all three Portland area locations. And that is on top of the special free comics–while supplies last–as well as big savings, and even the beginnings of TFAW’s astonishing Mega Sale.

PDXYAR will, once again, be adding a decidedly pirate flavour to the day as we will be on hand at the Milwaukie & Portland Things From Another World locations. We will be singing shanties, engaging in a fight or two and of course posing for pictures!

Now if you find yourself not being able to make it to the Portland or Milwaukie locations, do not fret- all is not lost. While there won’t be a pirating presence at the Beaverton TFAW (not officially at least), there will be duly sworn representatives of the Empire and even the Rebel Alliance will be on hand throughout the day. As the great folks from the Vader’s Fist, the 501st Legion’s Cloud City Garrison will be joined by the Kashyyyk Base Rebel Legion at the Beaverton TFAW store from 11am until 6pm. While they will definitely be posing for photos, I can’t promise you will get any intergalactic shanty singing out of them though.

When: Saturday, May 7th from 10am until 7pm
Cost: FREE (hence the name)

The Frank Reade “Land, Sea and Air Tour” Begins!

What could be better than an evening of high adventure with the near-mythic steampunk inventor Frank Reade, Jr? How about if such an event spanned three nights and involved some local steampunks, superheroes and pirates?

This is what you will get when you attend the “Land, Sea and Air Tour” book launch event for Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett’s new work, “Frank Reade: Adventures in the Age of Invention.”

Yes, we are talking that Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett. As in the same Portland duo that brought you the critically acclaimed book Boilerplate: History’s Mechanical Marvel and the Eisner Award–nominated science fiction comic book series Heartbreakers. Now the pair are delving back into a time before Jules Verne had his flying machines and H.G. Wells envisioned spaceships, to when the globe-trotting inventor Frank Reade became the original steampunk hero. Beginning in the mid-1870s and continuing for over forty years, Frank Reade magazines were the world’s first science fiction periodicals. Now Paul and Anina are bringing Frank and his progeny are back in a new book: Frank Reade: Adventures in the Age of Invention!

“A stunning multimedia confection of the highest order”
Publishers Weekly

To celebrate the release of this new book, the Guinan and Bennett have created a thoroughly unique launch event. Dubbed the “Land, Sea and Air Tour” the event will run three consecutive Wednesday’s this month. Not only will each night feature a separate theme of Land, Sea and Air at different local book stores, it will also have special guests to compliment the theme. And yes, this does include PDXYAR. On the 15th of February, we will not only be providing our own brand of piratical fun for the “Sea” themed night, but Paul will be actually engaging in a battle with the crew of El Tiburon, while playing the part Frank Reade, Jr!

Obviously you will want to be at Bridge City Comics for that, but before you start thinking of what night to attend, might we strongly suggest that you attend all three. You see, there’s a prize at the Feb. 22 grand finale event. When you attend this Wednesday’s event at Floating World Comics for the “Land” event, with special guests Rose City Steampunks, Local 23, you will get a “Land, Sea, and Air” passport. Get your passport stamped at all three events and you will be qualified to win a special prize. The first ten adventurers who make it to all three events and get their “Land, Sea, and Air” passports stamped will receive a print of an original Frank Reade engraving signed by both authors, plus custom-stamped Frank Reade chocolate “gold coins” (which will also be available for purchase).


Now that I have got your interest, here is the complete schedule for three events:

Feb. 8, 6-9 pm: LAND
Location: Floating World Comics
400 NW Couch St., Portland, OR 97209
Guests: Rose City Steampunks, Local 23
Vehicle: Frank Reade Jr.’s Valiant, an electric battle-wagon

Feb. 15, 6-9 pm: SEA
Location: Bridge City Comics
3725 N Mississippi Ave., Portland, OR 97227
Guests: PDXYAR
Vehicle: Frank Reade Sr. & Jr.’s Centennial, an electric ironclad gunboat
Bonus: A mock battle between pirates and author Paul Guinan as Frank Reade Jr.!

Location: Things From Another World
4133 NE Sandy Blvd., Portland, OR 97214
Guests: Alter Egos Society
Vehicle: “Wild” Kate Reade’s Aegis, a helicopter airship

Pirates Return to the Space Room Lounge!

Legend has foretold of a shining city beneath a towering mountain where culture and peace flourish. Yet, the Ancient Seers knew it was not to remain so for long. They have seen visions of great sails billowing and a stout wooden vessel making port in the the fair city under a flag of black. They have seen a great horde of ill favored men and stunning, yet contumelious, women coming ashore and descending, in the way of a mannerless rabble, upon a local public house month after month.

As it has been foretold, Pirates are returning to the Space Room!

Yes, indeed, after a holiday hiatus, the plans for the PDXYAR, Dangerous Kids and The Space Room Lounge to present “Pirates” are now complete. Not only is this much loved event returning, we have all worked together to come up with some improvements we hope will be to your liking.

The first change to Pirates (v2.0, if you will) is sure to make you happy. No longer will the event be held on Thursday nights! Instead, in order to preserve your sick days (and ours!) “Pirates at the Space Room” will now be held on Friday nights. In fact, you can plan right now to join us on the second Friday of every month.

On top of the usual singing of shanties, amazingly delicious (and dangerously potent) special drinks and general tomfoolery, you can look forward to a few new additions. One such addition is a Liar’s Dice Challenge. In this you will be able to challenge a pirate to a game of Liar’s Dice and if you win… well, let’s say there is a reward that certain state and local regulations prohibit us from discussing in an open forum.

The first of the new and improved “Pirates at the Space Room” will be Friday, February 10th from 8pm until midnight. After that will be occurring every 2nd Friday of the month. Make your plans, grab the number to your favorite cab company and we will see you there!

When: Friday, February 10th from 8pm until midnight (then every 2nd Friday of the month)
Where: The Space Room Lounge
4800 Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard
Portland, OR 97215

The 2nd Annual Ocracoke- A Pirate Gathering

Legend has it that near the end of his infamous career, Blackbeard came up with a plan to fortify a base to make it into a pirate haven. The location for this endeavor was to be village of Ocracoke, in the North Carolina colony, where many believe the pirate had established a “business relationship” with the colonial governor.

In memory of this idea, our good friends from The Copper Coin Festhall are presenting “Ocracoke- A Pirate Gathering” in Centralia, Washington, this weekend.

The 2nd Annual Ocracoke- A Pirate Gathering kicks off on Saturday, January 14th at 1pm. This 21 and over event will be featuring games, shanties, grog, belly dancers, performers and food. PDXYAR will be on hand to provide not only shanties, but also a performance featuring the sultry stylings of The Broadsides.

If you are not familiar with The Copper Coin Festhall, it be not your typical bar. Harkening back to an earlier age, The Copper Coin operates essentially on the concept of Bring-Your-Own-Booze, but with a twist. Just bring a bottle of rum, vodka, whiskey, tequila,or whatever you like and give it to the bar. Then you get to drink what ever you like all night. The Copper Coin has a large selection of cocktails and tasty drinks they can serve. Simply put, be good to The Coin and they’ll be good to you!

On top of the delightful entertainments and fine drinks, here will be a free dinner on Saturday night, as well as a free breakfast Sunday morning.

For those coming from out of town, a special discount rate has been set up with the King Oscar Motel of Centralia. Tell them you are with the Pirate Gathering and you can get single rooms available for $40 or a double room for $45. Follow this link for contact information.

When: Saturday, Jan. 14th 1pm
Cost: $15
Where: Fords Prairie Grange Hall
2640 W. Reynolds Ave, Centralia, WA

Sakkara Clothing & Costume

Kim Sakkara is a PDX-based seamstress to bellydancers who like to look good and be comfortable, but her gorgeous costumes and accessories also work beautifully for piracy and firedancing! A bellydancer herself, Kim knows how to craft clothing that flows and flatters the movements of the wearer. Her lace and velvet works are utterly comfortable and yet look more stunningly beautiful on stage than something that feels as easy to slip on as yoga pants has any right to be. She outfits for every size, so both the petite and the goddess-sized can shop together, have excellent selection, and the advice of a woman who can create for all shapes.

Finally there is one way this list could be complete without including DressLikeaPirate.com.

DressLikeaPirate.com began in 2003 and has since grown from just a dozen or so items of clothing to 600 products at last count, and they don’t count each size and color choice to come up with that number. It has moved from a spare bedroom in an apartment to the entire bottom floor of a multi residence building. Their main focus is on personalized service, the best customer service ever seen from a website, and to put a face on who you are sending your money to. When you visit the site, they want you to feel that you are walking into their stylish boutique where they hand you a cup of rum, take your measurements, and dress you .

The PDXYAR Holiday Shopping Guide- the Music

The crew of PDXYAR wanted to give you a hand with your holiday shopping this year. We’ve put our heads together and assembled a list of gifts you won’t find in any of the most mega of mega stores. What started as a cool idea turned into a labor of love as this guide consists of the artists, artisans and businesses that we admire.

Since the list grew beyond the length we first envisioned we have broken it up into a few different posts and we’ll be putting them on the website over the next few days.

Today we are starting with music.


Marian Call

Ms. Call is the only out-of-towner on this mostly all local list, but she has so won our hearts with her talent, genuine personality and charm.

Marian hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America at the speed of light. Her songs are quirky geeky eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla cinnamon chipotle something. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell meets Jason Mraz meets Regina Spektor — or perhaps like the lead church choir soprano went all Ani DiFranco.

Marian’s just released a double album, “Something Fierce.” You can get, and her other albums from her website.

The DoubleClicks

If for some reason you don’t know these Portland treasures, now is the perfect time rectify that grievous oversight. The Doubleclicks are a comedy/nerdfolk sister band that sings about Dungeons and Dragons, beatboxing, and lots and lots of heartbreak.

Currently the DoubleClicks have two albums for sale, “Blatant Pandering” and “Beta Testing 1-2-3.” both of these, very reasonable priced, wonderful offerings are available for digital download here (http://thedoubleclicks.bandcamp.com/)

Kielen King’s Star Pilot’s Lament

Whether you know Kielen (kee-lin) only as a member of the, nearly award winning, “Geek in the City Radio” podcast or an artist, his latest album is a Force to be reconded with. In fact, the term album is somewhat misleading in reguards to “Star Pilot’s Lament” as it is a musical sci fi epic.

“Follow the trials & tribulations of a star pilot as he heads from one end of the galaxy to the other and find out just how bad-ass one star pilot can be…”

You can listen to the tracks and then purchase the “Star Pilot’s Lament” in either a standard or deluxe set from the website.

While you are the site, check out the selection of t-shirts for sale. Not only does he have Star Pilot’s Lament shirts, but “Fun with Race” (his infamous segment on Geek in the City Radio) and “Token Black Guy” tees as well.

Fatboy Roberts’ Geek:Remixed

You undoubtedly know Fatboy from the “Cort and Fatboy Show”, Geek Trivia Night, his sociological, and sometimes anthropological, Twitter-borne observations from his daily Max train rides or from one of his other many other exploits. But, have your heard his remix of popular geek themes? From Star Wars to Star Trek, The A Team to the Princess Bride, he has taken the music of the movies and television shows we love and remixed them into something new and awesome.

In all there are three full Geek: Remixed albums avalable for download and get this- they are all FREE. Talk about the best price ever. Go now and grab them all from his website.
