Fear and Loathing in Lakeville

A leftist, teenage, somewhat intellectual blog.

Ask me Stuff!

It’s a sleep-on-the-floor-with-Pink-Floyd-on-the-turntable, while-mourning-your-shortcomings kind of night. 

The first volunteers in the fight against fascism. They really were the greatest generation.

Anyone else remember talking about going to help Venezuela fight back against a coup shortly after Chavez died? We may need to do that.

Finally got around to adding my photos from France.

Between Soviet troops in Afghanistan, the Foreign Legion regiment that threw a coup, and soon Castro-ite Cuban rebel impressions, I feel ya!

Dry Run of 319th

Took the 319th out for the first time this afternoon. Solid deck. After weathering repeated assaults from swedish S-tanks and losing a large portion of our T-55s, we were able to stabilize our lines by pushing our BMP-Ts to counter. Lessons learned: scramble air support early! I lost almost all of my planes early on, and my helicopters were repeatedly downed, even later in the game, due to not pushing the strelas up early enough.
