Celebrating LEGO’s 80th Birthday

August 10, 2012

It’s LEGO’s 80th Birthday. In celebration, here’s the official video celebrating 80 years charting their successes (and failures). It’s a moving 17 minute CG film that is beautiful, inspiring, and heartbreaking.

From the early days, through war, fire, loss; through determination, conviction, and faith – shows a family built to build.

The film does, however, make me dislike Mega Bloks, K’NEX, and KREO even more. LEGO created a path to change toys forever through passion and quality. Creating a toy system so uniquely theirs and through that vision they endured such tragedy. It’s so hard to justify any purchase to a company that would steal their very original idea.

It’s a definite must see.

Swapnote Me Maybe

July 28, 2012

While I rather dislike the original Call Me Maybe, the many parodies and covers out there are quite excellent. Though of all the ones I’ve watched, this one takes the cake. The complete brilliance of the beyond Nintendo nerdy lyrics is incredibly entertaining. I’ve watched this far too many times.

“Hey, I StreetPassed you, and this is crazy, but here’s my Friend Code. Swapnote me, maybe?”

Robot For Xmas – Mista Cookie Jar & the Chocolate Chips

December 3, 2011

Having my dad be Todd McHatton himself, I’m pretty well versed in the Kindie Rock community (I actually met Mista Cookie Jar at a Kindie Rock pool party earlier this year). After seeing this on OWTK I knew I had to get it posted. It is quite good.
