re: Hess' official team nickname.. - BrockLanders
He looks way more like Duane in "Annie Hall" than Francis in "Stripes" - both legit psychos, though, no question about it. [img]http://www.heyuguys.com/images/2012/11/Christopher-Walken-Annie-Hall.jpg[/img]...

re: Anyone been to Paris? - BrockLanders
Musee de Rodin is quite beautiful and well worth the trip - you won't have giant crowds either. And you absolutely have to consume as much Berthillon ice cream as humanly possible. ...

re: Greatest rock vocalist... - BrockLanders
[quote]Disagree on Roth as a "great vocalist" although I loved his sound (and antics)[/quote]. Always felt the same way - he is not a great singer or frontman, but he just might have been rock's ultimate showman. [img]http://www.vhnd.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/06.jpg[/img]...

re: Controversial Metal/Hard Rock Opinions (70's/80's edition) - BrockLanders

re: Monterey/Carmel, CA - BrockLanders
Extremely wise decision to make time for Compagno's. Best sandwich I ever had in my whole freaking life, and get another one for the plane ride! :cheers:...

re: Austin's skyline in 7 short years - BrockLanders
[quote] This is a pretty accurate and concise take. I lived there from '00 -'13 and was just back there last weekend visiting. It's a very different city, even from just a few years ago. It's still good, just different. We're considering moving back but the real estate is insane right now. I sold my...

re: Beastie Boys Paul's Boutique - BrockLanders
[quote]KEXP in Seattle spent 12 hours breaking down the album. They would spin off and play the original songs they sampled from. Scroll down on the linked page to see all of the songs they sampled. A copyright lawyer estimated in 2011 they would've had to pay $20 million in copyright fees to make t...

[quote]How good was the food? [/quote] Strictly speaking from a food perspective, yes, best meal I've ever had. Some others have come close, but nope, it's still my all-time favorite. When I went a long time ago, I think I had like 16 different things come to the table (ranging from tiny to...

[quote]Austin's airport is even worse than MSY if that's believable. [/quote] I was just there last week, and I can assure you that they must have improved for the better. Compared to MSY, it's a very laid back airport. TSA people were a bit easier to stand as well....

re: Top things to do in London besides the landmarks - BrockLanders
[quote] Not a bad idea. York is a 2 hour train ride from King's Cross and you can walk from the train station to see the town and cathedral. I liked York quite a bit for the 1 night I stayed there. London can wear on you after a while so a day trip like this can be nice. Also, spend some time wa...

re: Top things to do in London besides the landmarks - BrockLanders
Eat lunch in Green Park and rent one of the chairs - it's just a really nice way to get away from the hustle and bustle for a little bit. Ye Olde Mitre is a really cool super old pub that's absolutely worth a visit. When you're tired and don't feel like eating out anywhere (believe me, it'...
