re: Most disappointed you have ever been after a concert? - BrockLanders
[quote]Iron Maiden in 2012 at the Woodlands. Too much going on in their shows. I couldn't distinguish guitars, couldn't hear Bruce at all. Nicko was the bright spot.[/quote] I was about 10 rows back from the stage, with a guy in front me who looked like Barry Gibb's twin brother, circa 1977. Sou...

re: London in December - BrockLanders
Definitely visit St. Paul's, and if you do plan to climb to the top, make sure you are feeling very rested when you take that on. ...

re: John Besh Steps Down as Head of Restaurant Empire - BrockLanders
[quote]One of the more troubling aspects of this whole thing. A garbage company that has all but completely abandoned the city as far as having any real legit presence here, basically setting out on a mission to destroy a locally entrenched growing enterprise that employs 1000+. So heroic. [/quote]...

[quote]I am uncertain if many will fully understand the anger and distress that sexual harassment causes many women in the workplace.

re: John Besh Steps Down as Head of Restaurant Empire - BrockLanders
Well, cast aside the assault part for a moment. There's plenty of other stuff that seems to qualify for a highly hostile work environment. I don't think the TP would have spent 8 months on this very detailed article if the situation was lacking serious substance. ...

re: Train from Paris to London - BrockLanders
[quote]I disagree about eurostar security. We almost missed the damn train because of the line at st.pancras this past November. The French customs agent couldn't go any slower if he wanted to. I would get to the station an hour and a half in advance. Going back this november again and will not risk...

re: Share some of your grossest/trashiest/weirdest foods - BrockLanders
I used to have to endure an ex-girlfriend's family functions where the same people would make the same exact gross stuff every time. The highlight was always the uncle's macaroni & cheese in one of those giant aluminum pans, so feel free to use his lovely recipe: 1/3 macaroni 1/3 but...

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! ...

[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: 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. ...
