Im guessing it never hurts to follow up on anything in an ARG but I agree that the poster is probably there just to throw out a few red herrings. Follow your pirate/ninja senses as you please i guess!

and i agree, i have stayed off of twitter for the longest time but i cant help but go on to look at the captain's and mulligans posts.

PMs if you are watching us, thank you for the excellent writing ::applauds::

Man, you know... even though these are big fishies running this (based on how much money has gone into the campaign so far), I'm really impressed with the level of personal interaction and the quality of the humor. I'm not saying it's intense or extended interaction, nor am I saying that the interaction is meaningful or clue-imparting. However, what interaction I've been having with Mulligan and the Captain on Twitter really just slays me. Slays.

I guess what I'm saying is: if you haven't talked to the pirates, you really should. They are just as cute one-on-one as en masse.

I thought the new video was cool, it still seems like this is a high end investment for who ever is running this, it has to be for something big! As everyone has said the movie poster has jumped out at me, however reading everyones posts has shown that l dont think there is much here.

The one thing that l got from this and the other videos is that the box or chest holding the coins is always the same which is going to be how we recognize it if we find it, it has the skull type octopus on the front of it, just my two cents.

Just me 2 farthings.


That's my take as well since I don't expect real clues for another two weeks. I was interested in the poster more for amusement than clues but would rather be thorough.

This guy is a strong candidate for something...

Quote:
Jim moved to New York in 1985 and quickly established himself in the contemporary jazz community. Within a year of arriving, he became a touring member of John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra , started working relationships with Bill Evans (saxophonist) and Mike Stern and had recorded with Dave Liebman. He also began producing many successful recordings for artists such as Mike Stern, Bob Berg. Bill Evans (saxophonist) and Eliane Elias. In 1986 he began a working relationship with Wayne Shorter that lasted until 2000. In 1988 he became a member of John Scofield’s band and he toured the world in 1992/1993 with Pat Metheny’s ‘Secret Story’ project.
Jim established himself as a writer during his early New York period by contributing compositions to Michael Brecker and John McLaughlin recordings. Jim is noted for a uniquely eclectic and often whimsical compositional style which can run the spectrum from rich and deeply wild to melodic and childlike. His compositions and arrangements can incorporate elements of humor, unpredictability and classical forms. Many of Beard's compositions have been recorded by top jazz artists, for example "The Wait" by John McLaughlin; "Riddle Me This" by Bob Berg; "In The Hat" by Victor Bailey; "Ode to the Doo Da Day", "Quiet City" and "The Gentleman and Hizcaine" by Michael Brecker and "I'll Miss You" by Bill Evans (saxophonist).


my bolding for emphasis...

Good evening/time of day Sir,

Your name has featured on a floating black board that some pirates were interviewed by recently. Wondering if you know anything of this and if so, what your involvement may be?
If no - as you are New York based, it may be something you could be interested in anyhow??!
www.welostourgold.com

Thanks to them, I have now discovered your jazz which I will be listening to more tomorrow anyhow - hope things are good with you either way Sir
Paul xxxxx, an English teacher who should be in bed but it is too hot and my mind is busied with puppet pirates hiding gold in foreign cities!!!

after reading up on tatsuya nakadai, i found that his director had a falling out with toshiro mifune. toshiro+nakadai=toshiro nakadai, or tom

this leads me to believe between this coincidence and atomic line's discovery of the simon pegg thing, i'm fairly certain this has to do with movies. of course there's still the possibility it's all just coinincidence
