Random internet meanderings have landed me at The Brothers Brick, a Lego blog for grown-ups! Lego architecture kind of boggles my mind, especially my selections from their Movies & TV section:
Winning entry in the LGOe’s Musical Vignette Contest. Creator, Brainbikerider, is awesome and I think Burton needs to explore Lego animation. To paraphrase Mr. Skellington, just because I cannot see it, doesn’t mean I can’t believe it [could happen]!
Yesterday’s post left me in a bit of a shame spiral, but not in so great a spiral that I couldn’t spin my way out of it and immediately amass more crap. Cue my pre-ordered copy Super Mario Bros. Wii care of Amazon.com, despite the tired Princess Peach shenanigans (talk about a plot in need of a reboot) & Star Trek dvd (FLASHBACK)! Which brings me to this new feature on Little Junkies: Pop Couture. I like to think of it as a running wish list of random stuff like:
This desk: $…Many Thousands [via]
This ring: $28.00 [via]
This Wall Decal: $45.00 (yes there are 99 of them) [via]
This Lego set: $99.99 [via]
This desktop wallpaper: $0.00 (and a pun)!
Just not this (but I would totally rock it).
I don’t think it is possible for me to be more geeked out! LEGO Rock Band is coming this winter on the Wii and those other boy machines (PS3 & 360). Oh how I love a game that makes me feel like I can do actual cool things.
You don’t have to buy any new components if you already have Rockband or Guitar Hero (although I am dreaming of a LEGO-style guitar for me to buy). I’ll be real with you, this is the ultimate marketing scam. From what I’ve read, the only difference between this version and the others is LEGO avatars…And this little junkie could care less. LEGOs! Wee! In other poo-your-pants worthy news, here is a sample set list:
Blur: “Song 2″
Carl Douglas: “Kung Fu Fighting”
Europe: “The Final Countdown”
Good Charlotte: “Boys and Girls”
Pink: “So What”
EFFING “THE FINAL COUNTDOWN?” Are you serious?!?!?!?!?!!!!!
To understand that meltdown, please watch all three seasons of Arrested Development and/or the the video below. I can’t. wait! Oh, yeah…and there’s another new game coming out in September: The Beatles Rockband! Somebody call Dr. Feelgood, I think I’m going die of excitement!
