Shakespear Sonnet 29: Pirate Style

William Shakespeare
Sonnet 29 - 1609 A.D.

When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself, and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featur'd like him, like him with friends possess'd,
Desiring this man's art and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

Pirate Wenches On Pinterest

I have a few different Pirate Wench boards on Pinterest.

I am "BlackUniGryphon" on Pinterest (and everywhere else).

My boards & pins are so popular that after having been on there for several years around the end of 2012 I had to turn off my notifications because it kept filling up my e-mail inbox.

Visit Kandice's profile on Pinterest.

Here is my Pirate cosplay board:

Here is my main board of generic Pirate Wenches:

And, I don't know about you... but, don't u ever get BORED with all Pirates being Caucasian? If you've ever read ANY nautical novels, the crews were ethnically diverse. So, here's my ethnic variety board:

Some Instagram Pirate Highlights This Month

Here are some PIRATE highlights from my Instagram this month, so far. I have been sharing all kinds of this, so far.

If all goes well, I will do another #ThrowbackThursday

And, I will be sharing more Boho Chic stuff, as well as (hopefully) stuff for Chinese New Year!

Come follow me on Instagram: BlackUniGryphon

Good day!

Design Tweeking And Online Pirate Wenches

So, I've been re-tweeking the blog design. I think it's going rather well.

The new background image is done. And, the e-reader/mobile version loads in nanoseconds!

I hope you like it! 

I believe Pirate Pebbs has updated some of her cross dresser blog stuff as well, and she had an insane year also... we're both Virgo solar signs in the Zodiac.

I do also like (Crowned Queen of Pirates) Scarlett Harlott however, to my knowledge, she doesn't blog.

I also found Lady Pepper Cosplayer on Instagramand
And also on Facebook

Looking great!

Well..... so long as all Hell doesn't break loose, I've been doing #ThrowBackThursday on Instagram last week, and am looking forward to doing that again this week.

And, so long as nobody dies, or hell still hasn't broken loose, I might be able to do something for Chinese New Year.

In the meantime, enjoy my Photography, arts, and Boho Chic/Hippie stuff I keep sharing on Instagram. It's so popular, it's blowing up. I hope *crosses fingers* to move onto monetizing my new Boho/Gypset Blog by summer. I do have some my Bohemian Prom photos scheduled to pot in April/May... so look out for that.

If you don't yet use blog feed readers, I suggest using Feedly. It's free if you log on via Google. And, they have free apps also.

You Can NOW Pin My Blog to Pinterest!

Pinterest is actually about as old as Tumblr, and I've been on Pinterest for several years not, not quite as long as Tumblr, or even Twitter, but NOW, you can pin my blog stuff to Pinterest!


My previous blog format wouldn't allow it. 
But, I reprogrammed the whole thing. So, enjoy!

2014: What an INSANE YEAR!

What an INSANE YEAR! And, by insane, I mean medically insane people EVERYWHERE! 
2014 was TERRIBLE!!!!!

Junkies (plural), druggies, corruption, thieves, hackers, back stabbers, psychotic folks, nosy people, fights, flame wars, car accidents, suicidal people, vandalism, racism, and all kinds of bullshit & frauds, shady business practices, ants, hornets, spiders, etc! Oh, and I'm NOT referring to the news, I MEAN IN MY PERSONAL LIFE! WTF!!!!!! 1 thing after another, often multiples of the same fucked-up things, like a never ending barrage of hate, violence, attack, spies, etc.

Am and SO glad that shit is over! -I hope! *knocks wood*

I could not get a damned thing done! EVER! My nerves were shot, and often times the LAST place I wanted to be was online, or to express anything about it publicly... I was just trying to keep my own scruples! Yuck!

Not only that, but I was constantly sick, stressed out, and either I had insomnia so bad, or I couldn't get out of bed.

Lets never do that again, OK? 

I am not making any plans, yet... I've been nursing my health... Finally got to go to see a chiropractor. It helps me SO MUCH! My lungs just WERE NOT HEALING since late September, and my asthma was terrible... but, the moment I got my first spinal adjustment last month, I could fill my whole lungs with breath, and could sleep.

I'm only finally at a point where I can get back to doing some yoga... but, I still need to be careful, and also stay out of the cold air...


So, why the new design?

Well, in 2013, when I first started this blog, they had the new "Dynamic View" template which was a design for pads or e-readers, like iPad, and Galaxy... but it was VERY limited in what content you could apply to it... Google made it seem as tho' they would be updating it, but, they never did...

Truthfully, this IS MY MOST POPULAR BLOG I have EVER CREATED in my whole entire history of blogging, or online journaling... Even with barely any posts for whole long periods during 2014, I still consistently got views, hits, readers, etc.

But, since the "dynamic view" format capped the amount of ads I could utilize, I lost out on so much revenue. That left me with one option, switch the format to an older scripting format. So, that's what happened. 

I'm sorry it won't load as quickly in the e-readers, but even mega successful armchair bloggers don't use e-reader formatting, just the old stuff.

So, I've been reprogramming this whole blog... and programming is just NOT my strong point, so there's limits to what I can do...

I will ALSO be expanding my monetization horizons. Look,that's just the way it is... I put SO MUCH WORK into this blog, so there's no reason why I shouldn't expand my options, ya know?

Luckily, the traffic to this blog is decent.

And, I can also program my other internet content strait into this blog format, where as the other format would block much of the external content/widgets. It was VERY frustrating as a blogger.

Anyways, I'm very grateful to Google, as a contractor, but, I still want more options... ya know?

Now, I can get my Flattr widgets to work. No more glitching. I can share more content, easily, and even work around the limits with Google/Google+ connections.


I've also started a Bohemian/Boho Chic Hippie-ish themed blog... but, since Google won't let me monetize it until 6 months form now, I scheduled the posts to post much later.. Right now, the posts showing on it are pretty much nothing...

Oh, and my Music Blog finally got the green light for monetization! W00t!

However, at this moment, as I'm typing this,both of those blogs are quite terrible, and need some tweeking.... I know, they stink.

But, based on what I got done with this blog today, I think both will turn out really well once I get around to them.

And, that brings me to Instagram.

My Instagram is getting popular again. I went through it in 2012-2013... but, it died down, and then this year (2015) it started back up again.

So, go follow me on Instagram: BlackUniGryphon

Rotten Ralph's Karaoke Night in Philadelphia w Pirate Pebbs


What an insane year 2014 was! Ridiculous!

Well, as you know I was down all over in New Jersey, Pennsylvania (including Philadelphia), and Delaware doing any number of things, dodging metaphorical bullets, and trying to still keep my scruples.

Anyways, I'd fully intended to publish these photos for my buddy, Pirate Pebbs, for when we did Karaoke Night At Rotten Ralph's in Philly... but, it just NEVER SEEMED TO END with the crazy people all over, not just in the news, but also in my immediate life.... everything from hostile people, multiple people whom have medically lost their minds, junkies, hackers, criminals, psychotic folks, trolls, flame wars, fights, and things I was supposed to do, but life decided instead to prank me to no end.... and, don't even get me started with so-called "professional people"...

Anyways, I want to REALLY THANK the people whom came out to Rotten Ralph's that night, because you fine folks were SO NICE TO ME, that I didn't know how to handle it, because people had been SO ROTTEN to me for over a year, even before I got there.

I also want to give a BIG THANKS to Pirate Pebbs and her mom for being SO AMAZING & GOOD TO ME, and also to my DAUGHTER!
