If you’ve got nothing planned for Sunday, January 16th head on down to Melbourne town hall to have a look at the largest collection of LEGO models ever seen in Australia. For example,
The Love Boat
Entry is $6/adult, $3/child, or $15/family – details at
LEGO bricks can make you gay, because they go together so many ways and encourage experimentation.
You’ll probably be okay if you’ve only got them for “research purposes”.
If you’ve got 18 tiny cardboard boxes, all labelled 4508197 – they contain a cape, from the
Dwarve’s Mine. That should be in Google now.
What with the
Firefox Google page, and the customisable iGoogle, it’s less common these days to see the full-size Google logo, and its special event variations.
So you might have missed this: Google celebrated the
50th birthday of Lego (which was on Monday).
PS. I forgot to go to the Lego convention thing on Sunday, dammit.
Chewing Pixels highlights some great Lego finds
Doesn’t time fly? It seems like only last year Brickvention was on, but it was two years ago. This time ’round it’s being held opposite Flinders Street station, details at the
Brickvention 2008 website. As to what to expect: check out the 2006 website, which has some pretty impressive models on it.
If you find a small white box with 4500584 written on it, it has Lego string in it. Googling
4500584 lego didn’t find anything, but now it should.
Oooh yeah. Stop motion animation: Building the Lego Millenium Falcon

Sweet merciful mind-melting God! Photos of
Lego implementations of Escher drawings are back on the web.
People People People: the pural of Lego is Lego. Like with sheep. In fact, I think Lego likes their bricks to be called “LEGO bricks” (yelling and all), to distinguish from the company.
