re: Best day trip from London? - BrockLanders
It's a 3-hour train ride each way, but I had an awesome time visiting Dorset for a day. Just wish I could have stayed longer. ...

re: Mid-priced Hotels in London - BrockLanders
I haven't stayed in one yet, but several people have recommended Premier Inn to me as a quite decent chain hotel. Whether it qualifies as "great accommodations" for you, I have no idea, but it can't hurt to look into it. One big thing is that they have central air in the rooms! ...

re: Morning Flight From NYC To London - Anyone Done This? - BrockLanders
[quote]The overnight flight from MSY to LHR does not leave you jet lagged in the least....you board at 9:15 pm. So eat a heavy dinner at 6:45 or so, head to the airport, board at 9:15 pm, have a cocktail or glass of wine to relax, decline the in flight meal. Watch a movie & then go to sleep (eye mas...

re: Morning Flight From NYC To London - Anyone Done This? - BrockLanders
[quote]Why dont you just take the direct from MSY to LHR? Its a great flight on the way there as it leaves late at night and you land at noon or so[/quote] Because you're jet lagged like crazy - and then you have to stay up for a long time before you go to bed, and then that first day is totally ...

Morning Flight From NYC To London - Anyone Done This? - BrockLanders
Afternoon Everyone, Has anyone ever taken an early morning flight from NYC to London? I'm thinking of doing this in a few months to avoid the giant jet lag, not to mention what will probably be much smaller immigration lines at Heathrow when it's supper time. The plan would be to get a hotel...

re: Broadchurch - Season 3 BBC America tonight (6/28) - BrockLanders
By most accounts, it is a pale imitation of Broadchurch. Do yourself a big ol' favor and watch the real deal - you won't regret it. ...

re: Would you dress up for a concert at the Ryman? - BrockLanders
What did you think of the show and the Ryman itself? Best sounding hall I've ever been to, though there are other great ones of course. I believe I did dress up a little bit when I saw Nickel Creek's final concerts (at the time), but it was also freezing cold outside. ...

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: 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...
