Castles and Castles II – Siege and Conquest

I just remembered spending a lot of time playing Castles and Castles II – Siege and Conquest on my Macintosh back in 1992. This is the intro animation, setting the mood for the game… The gameplay looked like this:

Cafe De La Plage in Le Pouldu, Clohars-Carnoët, France

cafe-de-la-plage

The beach cafe “Cafe de la Plage” is located at 6 Rue des Grands Sables, 29369 Clohars-Carnoët, Bretagne, France. It was build in 1924 on the site of the Buvette de la Plage, the place where patron Mary Henry accommodated Paul Gaugin, Charles Filiger, André Gide, Meijer de Haan, Henry Moret and many other artists.

Some paintings by Gaugin and other artists can be admired in the adjacent museum, Maison-Musée du Pouldu. So, if you happen to come by, check it out.

The photo was taken in 1994.

Lot for sale in San Francisco

With the right change available, this could be a nice spot with a panorama view over The City. It’s located on Telegraph Hill, so there are quite some bay vista points available on each corner.

Black Sails – Opening Title Sequence

This is Black Sails’ theme song and opening credits composed by Bear McCreary. He also did some work for Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

This one is setting quite a mood for the series…

Black Sails – Official Trailer

Written as a prequel to Robert Louis Stevensons’ Treasure Island, Black Sails embarks on an adventure during the golden age of piracy with infamous captain Flint and his crew hunting the Spanish treasure galleon Urca de Lima.

The first season starts off with just 8 episodes in 2014 but a second season has been announced for 2015. The series is produced by Michael Bay and has a current rating of 8.0 at IMDb.

Since I am totally into pirates, I love it… can’t wait for the next season.
