re: Post a good, obscure 90's alternative song? - TheTideMustRoll
Elizabeth Fraser is my all-time favorite vocalist. She's incredible. Good luck figuring out any lyrics, though. She's (very) Scottish, they never printed any lyric sheets, what you can decipher is exceptionally abstract, and at least some of the songs are just nonsense sounds that she felt represent...

re: Post a good, obscure 90's alternative song? - TheTideMustRoll
The Cocteau Twins are more associated with the 80's, but this song was released in the early 90's. [link=(https://youtu.be/dtBr5JKSuks)]Cocteau Twins - "Heaven or Las Vegas"[/link] [link=(https://youtu.be/2up7su7CeMU)]Whale - "Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babes"[/link] [link=(https://youtu.be/Y0FT-5J...

The tabletop game is fun as shit, if you have the time and money to invest in putting an army together. GW makes some awesome minis, but they don't sell them cheap....

re: The Ultimate Civil War Debate: Ulysses S. Grant or Robert E. Lee? - TheTideMustRoll
To your points: Point one is correct. The situations were only roughly equivalent, not exactly. Point two was the same situation Grant found himself in at Cold Harbor. The South either won or drew all the battles in the Overland campaign. Point three is correct; again, the situations are on...

Diablo 3 too easy? - TheTideMustRoll
I just picked up Diablo 3 a few days ago since it was on sale. I really enjoyed the first two games in the series, and remember them as being pretty difficult. Diablo 3 is a lot of fun too, but it seems really, really easy. I'm in Act II and not only have I not died once, I can only think of one tim...

re: The Ultimate Civil War Debate: Ulysses S. Grant or Robert E. Lee? - TheTideMustRoll
Malvern Hill was two years earlier. And if you approve of Grant's decision to attack at Cold Harbor because it was made against a retreating enemy who had been badly handled and a successful assault might have won the war, then you have to admit Lee had the same reasons for attacking at Malvern Hill...

re: The Ultimate Civil War Debate: Ulysses S. Grant or Robert E. Lee? - TheTideMustRoll
I'm not saying Lee's decision at Gettysburg was a good one. I'm merely saying that he had at least tried to set up his attack on the center in classic Napoleonic fashion. Grant chose to attack a heavily prepared position at Cold Harbor in the most clumsy way possible. He obviously thought the potent...

re: The Ultimate Civil War Debate: Ulysses S. Grant or Robert E. Lee? - TheTideMustRoll
If you're going to hold Pickett's charge against Lee, then you have to hold the Union attack at Cold Harbor against Grant. To me, Grant's attack was far more unjustifiable. After the battle lines were drawn on the first day of Gettysburg, Lee attempted to fight the remainder of the battle straight o...

re: The Ultimate Civil War Debate: Ulysses S. Grant or Robert E. Lee? - TheTideMustRoll
Grant finally beat Lee because he realized what his predecessors had not: which side won the individual battles did not really matter. As long as the Army of the Potomac was not completely destroyed, sheer weight of numbers would eventually tell. The Overland campaign started off in a manner similar...

re: Legion - TheTideMustRoll
Yeah, it's definitely odd. A superhero show that's as creepy as a horror movie in some spots. Considering that it is dealing with a possibly schizophrenic psychic with the power to literally reshape reality, it makes sense that the show is as mindbending as it is. Jemaine's character, and the ent...

re: Moments in songs that send chills down your spine? - TheTideMustRoll
The 1812 Overture, right at the end when the main theme kicks in. Really cool, considering what the music is supposed to represent. The Hallelujah Chorus. As I listen to it, I think of the anecdote that Handel was reportedly found in his room crying immediately after having finished writing the p...
