To celebrate this years International Talk Like A Pirate Day on 19th September I will be doing a sound installation as part of the St Ives September Festival called "You have the word of Long John Silver", celebrating the actor Robert Newton's role as Long John Silver.

Yesterday was the last day of another "proper shop" closing it's doors for the last time in St Ives.

I haven't heard the rumours yet, but I will report back when I do.
Here's a video I made back in 2005 to celebrate Albert Einstein's groundbreaking discovery about the true nature of time in 1905.
