Hearst Castle on Flickr.
Though technically it’s just Hearst’s ranch house as he owned St Donat’s Castle which is a REAL medieval castle in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, overlooking the Bristol Channel in the village of St Donat’s near Llantwit Major, and about 25 km west of Cardiff. “After seeing photographs of the castle in Country Life magazine, the newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst bought it in 1925. Hearst spent a fortune renovating and revitalizing the castle, bringing electricity not only to his residence but also to the surrounding area. The locals enjoyed having Hearst in residence at the castle; he paid his employees very well, and his arrivals always created a big stir in a community not used to American excesses. Hearst spent much of his time entertaining influential people at his estates. He is renowned for holding lavish parties at St Donat’s; guests included Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and a young John F. Kennedy. Upon visiting St Donat’s, George Bernard Shaw was quoted as saying: “This is what God would have built if he had had the money.” Hearst’s newspaper empire fell on hard times in the later 1930s; the castle was put up for sale but requisitioned for use by British and American troops during the war. Hearst died in 1951 and the castle was bought in 1962 by Monsieur Antonin Besse II (1927 - ), son of the late Sir Antonin Besse (1877–1951), and given to the Governing Body of Atlantic College. Monsieur Antonin Besse II is a patron and honorary vice president of the United World Colleges.”

Alien: Isolation Trailer: The Cast of Alien

The real question is: Can I be Brett?

*sad trombone*

"Taking place moments after the death of Brett, it sees players assuming the role of Ripley, Dallas or Parker, as the crew of the Nostromo attempt to flush the alien from the air vents and into the ship’s airlock."

It’s been a minute (or 7 months to be exact) since we have had a Dance Night - our name for DJ only nights where we play music and you dance.

Game of Thrones-Inspired Soccer Uniforms for the Westeros Cup

For her ambitious and downright clever portfolio project “I Want To Work For Nike” designer Nerea Palacios has been releasing these modified versions of Nike sportswear to align with the various Great Houses of Westeros. Can you even imagine what would happen in a World Cup written by George R.R. Martin? There’d be at least 20% more biting.
