Lego Crack.

November 27, 2010

So today I discovered Lego Crack…
Lego Mini Figs.

Casually shopping for Lego this morning like every 30 year old does I found that Lego Mini Figs were available in Aus which had me suddenly in line buying four and ripping them open in search of a Spartan.
Ripping them open at a table, i discovered No Spartan but got the Mexican so it was cool, until i googled.
Suddenly I had the barcode system, a way of identifying the minifigs I needed; this lead to me standing at the counter another 2 times feeling up sealed packets of Lego figures checking barcodes.

So 11 mini figs later I still don’t have a Spartan but do have 2 Ring masters, 2 Mexicans and 2 Weight Lifters.

I found this video discussing the disease that is Lego Mini Figs from this year’s brick con…

So if you have any spare minifigs let me know 😀

I have always liked Kanye, despite all his antics and doings I have always liked his music and what he has achieved in such a short career.Each album seemed to be better than the last, perhaps the exeperiment with 808s and heartbreak is questionable but I liked it.

Well he is back now with My Beautful Dark Twisted Fantasy and the man is back doing what he does best, this album is amazing.
The video above is Kanye’s 35 minute visualization of the whole album which works so well, definitely worth watching and comes with the album on iTunes.

More Tron

November 16, 2010

So that is the second more indepth trailer for Tron Legacy and i am even more excited.
See I didn’t ever remember watching Tron so I grabbed a copy today and just finished watching it and loved it. Amazing movie and the special effects are great for the time; immediately after watching I watched both the new trailers and am even more excited now… Given the advances in technology over the years this looks stunning and does the original justice! Will see how the movie actually goes…

and just to keep me excited about Daft Punk, here is their video for Derezzed.. well i was going to post that, but literally just found a third trailer…

yeah that got me a little more excited

and just because I said i would, here is Daft Punk’s Derezzed.

Im going going back to back to Wollongong

November 3, 2010

No, it doesn’t have the same ring as Biggie’s Back to Cali, but who cares!
On Sunday I am back on the bike headed down to Wollongong for the Annual MS Sydney to the Gong Ride! and need your help to raise valuable funds for reasearch!

Did you know?
* Multiple Sclerosis is a disease affecting more young Australians than any other neurological condition
* The average age of diagnosis of MS is just 30 years
* MS affects three times as many women as men

MS Australia aims to minimise the impact of multiple sclerosis on all individuals affected by the disease, as well as their families, carers and the community, by offering a wide range of services, equipment and support. MS Australia’s goal is to assist everyone affected by MS to live life to their fullest potential and secure the care and support they need, until we ultimately find a cure.
