https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdzHOamTxBk&list=FLS8lXWXskaJ6tAYw0t6v9gA&index=1 I have been watching this video several times a week for the last month.  It is a fanvid about Black Sails that presents many of the show's most tragic scenes building in emotional intensity as a woman sings "we live in a beautiful world" louder and louder over the chaos.  I have a tendency… Continue reading We Live in a Beautiful World
