Will Technology Control Us?

Will Technology Control Us?

Sep 13, 2013 | No Comments

If this Star Scores were part of the Star Wars series, this would be Episode V, aka the Empire Strikes Back. While I can in no way expect that you will enjoy it as much as what many consider to be the best of the Star Wars movies, I do hope that we can only […]

LEGO Lord of the Rings Review: Tower of Orthanc

LEGO Lord of the Rings Review: Tower of Orthanc

Aug 29, 2013 | No Comments

Who’d have thunk that putting together the LEGO Lord of the Rings 10237 Tower of Orthanc Building Set would take six hours? It probably would have gone faster if I’d hired some orcs and goblins to help out, but they’re not the best houseguests. Last time, they ganked our entire supply of jerky and left […]

Millennium Falcon LEGO Star Wars Set 7965 Build and Review

Millennium Falcon LEGO Star Wars Set 7965 Build and Review

Aug 22, 2013 | No Comments

I finally had a chance to build my own Millennium Falcon! Sure, it has two manuals and lots of stickers, but this time-lapse video makes it seem like I built it in less than twelve parsecs! Yes, yes, I know that parsecs are units of distance — not time. I tried explaining this all to […]

Is There a LEGO Apple Store Set? Kinda.

Oct 27, 2011 | One Comment

Some would call it an unhealthy obsession – I would prefer to refer to it as a hobby. LEGO isn’t for some. Those who cannot accommodate bricks must continue to put up with people like me (who, by the way, are not responsible for gigantic minifigs washing up on Florida shorelines). We need some kind […]

Nobody Expects the LEGO Inquisition

Oct 3, 2011 | 4 Comments

While I did happen to enjoy a few random episodes of Monty Python’s Flying Circus on PBS when it aired, I couldn’t understand half of it. The troupe’s thick British accents were not half as challenging to interpret as their somewhat-foreign, albeit clearly offbeat, humor humour. It wasn’t until my early days at college (before […]

This Can Mean Only One Thing: LEGO Droid Invasion

Oct 3, 2011 | No Comments

I still have mixed emotions about “Episode I: The Phantom Menace.” I want to love it, but at this point I think I’m going to have to settle for a tepid like. I recall living in an apartment at the time a pop music radio station played “Duel of the Fates” for the first time. […]

Indiana Jones and the Adventure of LEGO Minifigs

Oct 3, 2011 | No Comments

When “Raiders of the Lost Ark” was first released, I was still in grade school. I remember sitting in the back seat of my mother’s old (yes, even old by that day’s standards) Volkswagen Rabbit and being told that while she and Dad would be seeing the new movie in theaters, my brothers and I […]

LEGO Convention in Seattle: Brickcon!

Oct 3, 2011 | No Comments

While I have certainly known about LEGO for a number of years, I can’t say that most of my adult life was spent with bricks. It wasn’t until the social network FriendFeed came about that I started to become interested in LEGO as a post-pubescent. There, some people were regularly sharing MOC (My Own Creation) […]

Star Wars Advent Calendar is Jediriffic Year-Round

Sep 21, 2011 | No Comments

I got a LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar! The idea of using an Advent calendar once held deep, religious significance for me – but since evolving into a non-Catholic, I only seem to appreciate the winter Holiday season for nostalgic reasons. I love the sights and sounds of Christmas, but… not its largely-borrowed-by-Christianity foundation. As […]

Building Egyptian Pyramids is Easy… with LEGO

Sep 10, 2011 | No Comments

I’ve never been to Egypt, but I’ve watched plenty of documentaries and informational shows about it to know everything there is to possibly know about its history. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch – but I’m sure you feel like you’re in the same boat as far as Egyptology is concerned. Unless you’re […]

Ancient Aliens Are Invading… LEGO?

Sep 10, 2011 | No Comments

As to how we wound up with consciousness on this globe, there are quite a few theories floating around. One such theory is that very long ago (like, long before Abe Vigoda), creatures from another dimension / galaxy / planet / universe visited Earth. I don’t know if this theory holds water, but it sure […]

LEGO Police Videos Are Yours for the Making

Sep 7, 2011 | No Comments

I’ve never been in trouble with the law – other than receiving a few speeding tickets. After watching all the cop dramas and prison exposés on television, it’s a wonder anybody would commit a crime anymore. Sure, you have a few errant “bad cops,” but most police officers are good guys (and gals). I happened […]

LEGO Creators Don’t Need Instructions

Sep 1, 2011 | One Comment

I’ve heard a few people complain that LEGO isn’t what it used to be – a random series of multi-colored bricks which encouraged a person to use their imagination to complete the assembly of any given construct. Yeah, that’s how LEGO sets were when I first learned of them (as a child long ago, mind […]

LEGO Minifigures Series 5 Review

Aug 30, 2011 | No Comments

I think I’d categorize myself as a person who has always loved the LEGO minifig. Mind you, I adore all bricks equally – but the minifigure has a special place in my heart (and permanently on my shelves). My first set did not come with a single minifig, though – since its delivery preceded the […]
