    The Devin Townsend Supermegathread!

    I missed this and somehow just stumbled back upon it. I am liking all of these sounds.

    Game of Thrones

    Fair enough. I can't say the show has been transparent with Rhaegar's involvement. I do know, however, that after spending so many words on this topic today the series is like to wrap this up in the first five minutes on Sunday. :lol:

    Game of Thrones

    I guess the difference is, I don't feel like validation is required at this point. A good way to put it would be: if the series jumped straight to telling Jon (through Bran or something else) that he's the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna, I wouldn't feel like they missed a step.

    Game of Thrones

    You're only serving my point here. If we start questioning that, we start questioning everything. How do we know Eddard Stark was real? How do we know Lady is really dead? How do we know Essos isn't a drug induced stupor that everyone slips off to when they get a few miles from Westeros where...

    Game of Thrones

    I don't know how much more evidence you could ask for... Rhaegar "abducted" Lyanna. Rhaegar annulled his marriage and married Lyanna in secret. Lyanna was guarded by Kingsguard at the Tower of Joy. By all appearances, Lyanna died of complications from childbirth. Thinking that Lyanna isn't the...

    Game of Thrones

    People are still trying to diffuse R+L=J? The show has confirmed it. We also have no evidence that Littlefinger was in Lyanna's presence at any point - ever. He grew up in Riverrun with the Tully's until he challenged Brandon Stark for Catelyn. He then went back to the Vale. It wasn't until...

    Game of Thrones

    Only calling it fan service because the only reason you bring back a character like Gendry is for the sake of nostalgia. Gendry's storyline could have been completely done and it wouldn't have been a problem. There is still the whole kingsblood thread and maybe he can smith a bunch of...

    Game of Thrones

    It's still a writing problem, though. If you want to condense plot, fine, condense it, but don't half-ass it. Here is what the show did: Tyrion/Davos go to King's Landing from Dragonstone. They pick up Gendry and Tyrion has a two minute conversation with Jaime. They go back to Dragonstone. Jon...

    Yeah, I mean, he literally got an arrow to the neck.

    Also glad to see dead sand snakes. Plotwise, the Iron Island stuff has been just as bad, the only difference is the actor playing Euron is excellent.

    Loved that cold open, though.

    Pain of Salvation about to bring back the metal?

    It's really grown on me and I like it a lot. Seeing them play most of it live got me into a few I hadn't considered. Only one I'm not a big fan of is Tongue of God. The music is fine, but the lyrics creep me the hell out. I guess that's probably the point. But yeah, Meaningless, Reasons, and...

    Game of Thrones

    Season 5 was in the limbo of "Are we drawing this out as much as possible so George can finish the books, or are we just going to keep pushing through, books be damned?" Before Season 5, HBO was wanting to draw the series out as long as possible, and the showrunners eventually convinced them to...

    Yeah, Season 5 is by far the worst season... oof.

    Official Axe-Fx Q&A thread!

    It's really easy for me - I started playing in 2000. Very little math required, haha.

    Official Axe-Fx Q&A thread!

    Thanks for the responses. I've been playing for 17 years now, but almost all of that time has been focused on playing/technique; I was never really one to sit down and tweak knobs. Before the Axe-FX I only had one tube amp - an ENGL Fireball 100W. I mostly dialed in a pretty standard setting...

    Official Axe-Fx Q&A thread!

    You guys have way, way, way better ears than I do. I feel like I'm throwing darts when I start turning knobs.

    I just don't ever use rectos. :-p Sorry for the shitpost, I'll see my way out.

    Official Axe-Fx Q&A thread!

    It's as easy or hard as you make it. If you just want to flip through pre-sets or play other people's sounds you like, it's literally just loading a sound and playing. Or if you want to tweak for days, you'll have every opportunity to do so.
