eNiGMa's "When filming a hoax..." brings Bigfoot to Lego!

In one of my favorite scenes in a long time, longtime friend and fellow AFOL (for all you new readers out there, that stands for "Adult Fan Of Lego") Nathan Cunningham has tackled the subject of Bigfoot, and he's done it in a way that pleases the scholar in me, so-to-speak.




(Please see the title link for more pictures and information)


Instead of a "Bigfoot is fake!" statement piece, or even a "Haha, look, it's supposed to be that Bigfoot myth!" take, Nathan Cunningham has melded the true essence of Lego, blended it with humor, and still come out with an appropriate picture of Sasquatch phenomena.

You've got your hoaxers, evil fiends they are (the humor), you've got your scene (Lego essence--and by the way, it's built beautifully, simple from afar, deeply detailed up close), and then you've got your "true" portion--the pack-raiding Bigfoot himself!

In a sense, the viewer has the concept of a real, viable undiscovered great ape suggested to him. Beautiful.

My one wish, though? That that 'squatch would kill and eat the hoaxers, right where they stand!

This is Lego-building, at its finest.

Yeah, sorry, haven't been posting much; busy of late. And I'd like to reiterate that I'm using my Shoutbox for minor updates, there have been a few lately. Scroll down, it's on the left a little ways.

God bless,

"Jar of Hearts", by Christina Perri

I just discovered this song yesterday. Watching Fuse on my break at work, this song came on. I'd actually heard about it, but hadn't seen the full video. I soon realized that I had completely stopped eating my snack, wasn't moving, and was staring like a dead deer trophy. Needless to say, when I went home, I YouTubed it...and will now presume to kill it. I'm probably gonna have to buy this one. (Note: I have not yet fully investigated this song or artist as I usually do, and I cannot endorse anything. The video itself isn't exactly perfect in that way, either.)



The song is amazing, she sings beautifully, and the song is a strong, dark, grabbing breath of fresh air compared to the garbage that is usually pumped out. I couldn't but help noticing this comment on the video, though:

I just dont understand how a man can hurt the woman they are supposed to love....we are supposed to make them feel safe, secure and let them know that you will never let anything hurt them...so many men have women that love them and they take advantage of that and abuse them...my ex destroyed mine...but thats why I know. BE MEN love them, cherish them especially if they love you and put you first...to all you beautiful women stay strong there are good men left.

I went and friended the guy, just for that. And when I started writing this I was about to outline my plan to fix this disease of hellish proportions, but you know what...I don't think I can actually put that out on the web.

Besides, it'd be such an effective and fitting dealing of justice that I can't even actually endorse it.

Snowmageddon!

Oh, the horror!

I don't know about you, but this global freezing--er, warming--thing is pretty darn annoying! (Yeah, even the mud puddles were frozen this morning.)
