Aargh!

Tonight’s Post is brought to you courtesy of the Internet.

Background
As far as title sequences go, Black Sails is my #1 favorite
– not only visually, but for its theme song.*

After being introduced to the title sequence of Westworld (the series), I went digging around for more details after one image caught my attention,

and ran across an interesting site that showcases a variety of movies/series: Art of the Title. While there, I searched to see if they had anything on Black Sails. They did:

The work of Kris Kuksi was just one of the inspirations behind the (CGI) sculpture.

From Wikipedia:

"The opening title sequence was made by Imaginary Forces**
...with the backing sea shanty inspired theme composed by 
Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead composer Bear
McCreary. 

It accurately features an instrument of the period in the form 
of the hurdy-gurdy."

Season Four of Black Sails debuts January 29, 2017 – without Vane (who was hanged in Season Three). Waxing nostalgic for Charles, I re-watched the first episode where Captain Flint (played by Toby Stephens) delivers two of the best quotes in the entire series:

"He means to make us monsters - 'cause that's the only way his 
god-fearing, tax-paying subjects can make sense of men who keep 
what is theirs and fear no one. When I said there's a War 
coming...Civilization is coming and it means to exterminate us."
- Flint (to Billy Bones)

"I'm not just gonna make you rich. I'm not just gonna make you
strong. I'm gonna make you Princes of the New World!"
- Flint (to the crew of The Walrus)

*Game of Thrones’ intro appears to have top-billing to-date. It is visually-stunning and will be discussed in a future Post.

**Credited also for the opening sequence of Mad Men.

  2. Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • My site is powered by WordPress which allows you to use both their WYSIWYG editor – or hand-code (which is what I do). They offer free webspace albeit with embedded ads, but their non-free accounts are reasonably priced. From what I understand, most companies that support free blogs come with WYSIWYG editors but you may want to check this out:

  3. Nunca olvidaré cuando me monté en el helicóptero y, valle abajo, dejé de ver la vertiente sur del Gasherbrum 1. El sentimiento es de dolor, de que ya se acaba, se acaba de verdad, vuelves de alguna manera a la civilización dejando mucho, dejando mucho en el campo base, en la montaña. Pasé un día en Islamabad, cogí un vuelo hasta Qatar y de allí ya a Madrid donde estaban esperando Leire Giarte, Sebastián Álvaro, Mariano Izquierdo, y Hanif, que vinieron a recibirme. Han construido una bota menos técnica de lo que puede ser una Sportiva, una Scarpa pero sin lugar a dudas es una bota caliente.
