International Talk Like a Pirate Day is Thursday, September 19. Which means you have less than a month to become fluent in Pirate Talk before then. We're celebrating Talk Like Pirate Day at the Park Hill Branch on Saturday September 21st at 3:00PM with a Pirate celebration and we've all been brushing up on our Pirate Talk.

Addled-- Mad, insane, or just stupid. An "addlepate" is a fool.
Avast!-- Hey! Could also be used as "Stop that!" or "Who goes there?"
Belay-- Stop that. "Belay that talk!" would mean "Shut up!"
Bilge!-- Nonsense, or foolish talk. The bilges of a ship are the lowest parts, inside the hull along the keel. They fill with stinking bilgewater—or just "bilge."

Marian McPartland once noted, "The Key of D is daffodil yellow, B major is maroon, and B flat is blue." The beloved jazz pianist and host of NPR's Piano Jazz for over 30 years has left the recording studio, after sharing a rainbow of musical journeys with fellow artists.
If you are new to jazz or want to pay tribute to McPartland and her musical family, visit NPR's tribute Twilight World. McPartland interviewed her guests with the language of music, co-creating unique musical experiences. She had a gift for drawing musicians out, and the intimacy of their conversations drew listeners in.
