It may be a man’s world, but these girls have super powers and they’re not afraid to use them! Superhero Girls We’ve all heard of Supergirl, Batgirl and Wonder Woman; now see where it all began with this stunning animated re-imagining of the ladies of DC. We were all kids once and it can be hard growing up different. These girls may have super powers, but honing your skills is always important, that’s why they go to Super Hero High! Just like us, the Superhero Girls aren’t perfect, Supergirl is clumsy, Poison Ivy is shy and Harley Quinn is just downright unpredictable! Flaws aside, they are all exceptional in their own way and if they work together they can do anything, but not without a few challenges along the way.   Continue reading →

    Ghostbusters Are Getting a Makeover!
    So far the new Ghostbusters movie has received a very mixed reception of praise and criticism. The first movie trailer was Ghostbustersnotoriously the most disliked YouTube has seen! We’ll just have to wait until this Friday (15th July) to find out for ourselves if this will be a huge hit or a massive flop! Ghostbusters In 1984 the world was given the gift of Ghostbusters with the original movie starring acting legends Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Sigourney Weaver. The Ray Parker Jr. theme tune “Who You Gonna Call?” was catchy, the acting was comical and the action was spot on. What more could you want? Well a sequel of course! While it wasn’t as big as the original, it still received high praise. Since then, it has kept a strong cult following and merchandise has always been available with that iconic logo. Now we’re getting a re-boot... An all female one at that! Continue reading →

    Harry Paye Day Is Back!
    Arrrr! It’s that time of year again land lubbers! The Pirates of Poole are taking over the Quay for Harry Paye Day! The Pirates of Poole are a local community group who strive to keep the maritime history of Poole alive and they also hold events to raise money for local charities and causes. In 2006 they began an event to celebrate Poole’s most famous and notorious pirate of all and thus Harry Paye Day was born! The day was such a success that it became an annual celebration. Who Was Harry Paye? Harry Paye certainly made a name for himself in the 15th Century, so much so that you still hear the tales to this day. Both Paye and his ship, the Mary , appear in the Kings records as being a transport to Spain, but the Spaniards marked him as a thief. He is said to have stolen the gold cross from the Church of Finisterre... We wouldn’t put it past him! Paye became notorious for burning the Spanish city of Gijion, home of his lover Countess Isabel. All of his terrible escapades drove the Spanish to seek revenge on the dreaded Arripaye! In 1405 passing Spanish and French Galleys discovered that Poole was the home of their nemesis and unleashed a deadly fighting force upon the town. When Harry Paye got wind of destruction to his home and that his brother fell in the horrific battle, he took action! He gathered a fleet of ships and captured French and Spanish cargo vessels, seizing copious amounts of booty, including rather of lot of high quality wine. Paye took the cargo back to Poole and shared it with the town’s people in hope that it would ease the suffering that he bought to them. According to the stories they feasted and drank for days after.
