The Notting Hill Carnival

We had a few hours to spare on Sunday when we popped up to London to see my wife's cousin and discovered very late on that the Notting Hill Carnival was taking place so headed across the city to check it out. - Mark H
It would be fair to say that my wife initially didn't like it but, after we'd been there a little while, she really grew to absolutely loathe the entire event. This, sadly, curtailed my growing enjoyment of the carnival. It was noisy, crowded, full of mostly glum-looking people, and ankle deep in filth in many places. In short: it was fabulous. I wished I'd had longer there. You'll... more... - Mark H

Hahaha! You're an odd duck, sir. - Spidra Webster
It would seem after years of this festival, they would know how many trash bins they would need for the crowds, and that they should be emptied regularly. Or do the trash collectors only work Monday-Friday? - Nils Sandin
Now I'm totally combing through to see if I can spot my friends. My friends who moved there, and my friends who are in town for Kate Bush were all at the carnival :) - Jennifer Dittrich
Nils: I did wonder if the lack of bins might not be for security reasons but it might actually be as simple as realising that people won't use them once they've had a few drinks and it's just as easy to send the sweepers down the road overnight. - Mark H
Wow, that was a lot of trash! I could see either reason, but dang. - Jennifer Dittrich
Be thankful I didn't take pictures of the toilet facilities. Women (and men in need of a sit down) got to queue ten-deep at the portaloos. Men had urinals set up in the street. I'd not seen them before and it was... unsettling. A bit like these - http://www.urinal.net/lowland... - but not quite. Imagine about a hundred on the pavement and men jostling to use them. Lovely stuff. - Mark H

"Caesar Augustus died two thousand years ago, on August 19, 14 AD. He was Rome’s first emperor, having won a civil war more than 40 years earlier that transformed the dysfunctional Roman Republic into an empire. Under Augustus and his successors, the empire experienced 200 years of relative peace and prosperity. Here are 40 maps that explain the Roman Empire — its rise and fall, its culture and economy, and how it laid the foundations of the modern world." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Guardians of the Galaxy. Pleasantly surprised. Expected a silly stupid movie and it was a bit silly, but it was entertaining. Some great CGI given that a few of the major characters were synthetic. Awesome weapons that would make james bond jealous. We get our star wars weird aliens and bar scenes. Witty gang of thieves type banter.

Groot is perhaps one of the best characters ever. Just an astonishing creation. If such a being doesn't exist it would be a shame. All the actors do a good job. The dialogue is sometimes too much tell and not show, but that's OK. The infinity stone plot device is sufficient, but it lacks the depth of Star Wars and the force. I loved that singing arrow. I want one. There's a formula to the movie and you feel it playing out through the movie, but it worked, so I guess that's the point. - Todd Hoff
Notice, if you've experienced the process of a loved one dying of cancer then the beginning of the movie is devastating and comes out of nowhere. Just be prepared. - Todd Hoff
