After Action Report: Fell’s Point Privateer Day 2010

So the second weekend of March, 2010 saw me at the Fell’s Point Privateer Day in Baltimore, MD. This was my first year attending this event, although I’d certainly heard good things. I was, however, a little concerned that a Privateer “Day” might not quite be robust enough to justify a long distance journey. Thanks in large part to Pirates Magazine and the Devil’s Dozen Induction, I needn’t have worried. Continue reading

The Search for the Devil’s Dozen

new-poster13From Pirates Magazine:

Ahoy mateys!
There be big doin’s afoot here at Pirates Magazine. We’re holding a contest to pick the nation’s best buccaneers. With your help, we’ll scour the globe to find “The Devil’s Dozen”; 13 scallywags that best exemplify the spirit of piracy. That’s right, YOU can join the ranks to be one of the 13 official Pirates Magazine Devil’s Dozen of 2010.

Here’s how the contest works:
If you’re part of a cosplay pirate crew, parade group or a pirate reenactor, send in a photo of your captain along with a short paragraph about him (or her). The editors of Pirates magazine will pick twelve captains from east of the Mississippi and twelve captains from west of the Mississippi (Aye, we’re splittin’ the world right in half like a cutlass through a cooked goose!) to comprise a total of 24 captains from which 13 proud pirates will be picked by their peers and the readers of Pirates magazine via So e-mail a photo and paragraph about your captain to me at: Continue reading

Best… Issue… EVER!

Pirates Magazine, Autumn 2008, is the best issue of Pirates Magazine – or any pirate publication for that matter – to ever grace the world with its presence. And I’ll tell you why – FIVE FLOGGIN’ PAGES ABOUT BILGEMUNKY!!!

That’s right – FIVE pages about yours truly. Cap’n Slappy, in his “Profiles in Pirattitude” feature, delved into the very depths of what makes Bilgemunky tick, and he converted his new found knowledge into glowing words and glorious pictures of ME! ALL OF ME!!!

So go to Barnes&Noble and buy this issue. Buy several. I want Pirates Magazine to know that this was their most popular issue ever. And then other magazines will write of me again and again, until someone finally makes an entire magazine that is about Bilgemunky and only Bilgemunky. Imagine – photo spreads of Bilgemunky at work and play. Bilgemunky goes to the grocery story, Bilgemunky cleans the litter box, Bilgemunky lets fame go to his head and refers to himself in the third person until he alienates everyone…

The possibilities are truly endless.
