Why You Should Watch Black Sails

March 4, 2015 Bekka, Imaginative Discussions 3

It’s no secret that I love this Starz pirate drama – I scream about it every Saturday night at 9. And in my opinion, there just aren’t enough of your voices screaming with me.

March 3, 2015 Bekka, Lyn, Top Ten Tuesday 4

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: All-time faves from the last 3 years This week is PAINFUL. It is just plain RUDE to ask this of us.
