Saturday Night Smackdown! Saturday August 4th, 2007 right here at Eurobricks.

Posted Image

After a spat in this thread, Hinckley challenged Sinner to a build-off. Check out the thread, it's hilarious fun. If not, here's a quick summary:

-Sinner challenged everyone to build something in a bag.
-This was difficult for Hinckley.
-Sinner thanked Hinckley for participating.
-Hinckley got pissed. A lot of slapping and booing followed.
-Sinner accused Hinckley of being a walrus-phobe
-Hinckley denied this challenging Sinner to a build-off.
-Sinner accepted.
-StarWars4J posted incriminating photos seeming to solidify Sinner's accusations of Hinckley39's walrus-phobia:

Posted Image

-Hinckley claims the picture is taken out of contest and Sinner agrees he knows why he lost his bucket priveledges. Nonetheless, if Sinner wins, he gets the bucket back...

So, the rules of this build-off are as follows:

1. Only pieces from these four sets can be used:

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

2. The winner will decided by poll
3. The two contestants have two weeks to complete their MOC
4. The winner gets to choose the loser's avatar for one month following the competition...
EDIT: Yoda has just informed us that the winner will also get to choose a title for the loser! 8-°

On August 4th our official, SW4J will post the pics of our entries and open the poll for the contest...

:-D  :-D  :-D  :-D

So there you have it. For those of you who like the way this type of challenge sounds and would like to participate in a EB contest based on these same rules, (not the penalty for losing, of course) Sinner is conducting research for such a contest in the FFLSMP thread...

And if you'd like to see fun pictures of what the fight looks like in hinckley's twisted mind, click on this picture:

Honestly, I tried to keep the sophmoric humor mostly out of this little comic strip. I'm saving all that for the end of the Whack-a-Fig contest. So I removed most toilet and underwear references from the smackdown page. Okay, so I left in one underwear joke and two groin jokes, but poddy humor should be the spice of life, not the main dish!

:-P

Mein Godt(s)! That was not in a good way. You and Sinner are becoming the new Kings of Off-Topic, aren't you? X-D Judging by you two and your... botched sense of humor, I am disturbed at the prospect of what that avatar might contain. 8-|

Norrington, I totally thought of you today. I saw that story on CNN about the Haunted Mansion burning down at Disney World or was it DisneyLand? I don't know. No difference, right? Anyway they said the fire started in some falling ceiling or something, electrical fire. Burned to the ground. Apparently, Disney is not going to re-build the ride, they say it doesn't have the ticket sales or draw it used to. I think the exact quote was "lame old attraction." The closed by saying that most visitors haven't even noticed the difference.

Yikes, I hope you're okay. How are you taking it?...

Hell no. There are difference in the DL and WDW Haunted Mansions,  You really think that I think that the Haunted Mansion burned down? They do have means of preventing it. Besides, they would rebuild it anyway. The Haunted Mansion has to much of cult following. That goes for Pirates of the Caribbean to. |-/ The Haunted Mansion doesn't have ticket sales, anyway. The ticket is for the park, The HM is just inside it.  All they would have to do is build more animatronics and sets to put in the Show Building connected to the external facade. Why would they not rebuild the one of the most popular rides in Disney parks, escpecially as it was one of Walt's last attractions.

Gods Hinckley, it's as if you think I live at the bottom of the ocean, crawling above land once a year to mate and go to a Disney Theme Park. X-D

'twas a joke, my dear friend.

EDIT: It seems there was a fire near DisneyLand's Haunted Mansion. The pet cemetary out front caught on fire from fire-works debris, but it was put out by rain. If the HM burned down, I would have a candle-light vigil until it was rebuilt.

An besides since Hinckley told the entire world his secret, we will all know what pictures are his

StarWars4J will host the pictures on his brickshelf account. I've explained to Sinner how to setup a shadow box just like mine so our entries will look the same. We each get to enter five pictures and neither one of us will label our pictures with our names. Also, SW4J will not put our names with our entries in the poll, they will be anonymous...

So, :-D yourself

On a more serious note, I suspect that Hinckley's photos will be better than mine, but we shall see. Yesterday I did a huge re-arrangement so I have a better place to take photos. With another light or two we could have similar results... I hope.  :-P

Open that image in Photoshop and choose Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen. Then choose edit > fade. A little dialog boc comes up with a % and a dropbox. Change the dropbox from Normal to Screen and you will be very close to the way my pictures look. Then hit ctrl (or apple) b and the color balance box comes up. Keep the radio button on midtones and raise or lower the red or blue depenging on if the color needs to be cooler or warmer.
