    How did you come out of your Dark Ages?

    My dark ages mainly coincides with periods of unemployment and lack of funds. Once I get back in the stride my interest in LEGO usually reasserts itself after a while. I have to say though, that it seems to be getting harder and harder every time. Maybe it's just because I've gotten older. Or maybe it's because most of the current sets just aren't appealing to me.

    I actually think he has quite a few good points. Some of it, I feel, is because he's simply not willing to go along with the idea that this is LEGO and you can build whatever you want. But the points about the movie not following it's own logic and the mess in the end I agree with fully.
  3. Hmmm... Yet another contest with a very tight deadline. Turtle, eh? What a peculiar choice for a theme. Interesting though - I'll have to see what I can do.

    Sigh... Does everything has to be a franchise these days? Honestly, the movie was pretty good as a one-time-only thing, but I cannot see it standing up to sequel after sequel.
  5. Huh? Did the date change? I would have sworn that the ending was at the end of this month. But I might be wrong. In any case, I still don't think that's very long. Considering how little time I usually have to "play", I would prefer that such competitions ran for no less than 3 months or so. It takes time to come up with an idea, design it, change it, improve it, order the needed bricks... Okay, so the last step can be skipped this time. I guess I just don't like feeling rushed. I work best when I have some time to think things over, brainstorm a bit, try out various ideas...
  6. Sounds like an interesting competition. But why such a shot deadline? A month is not much to come up with an idea and build a good design.
  7. My big problem is that I'm a perfectionist. I usually design models in MLCad and then order the bricks I need. But, inevitably, after a week or so I'll return to the finished design and go "Hmmmmm... I'f only I could shift that brick half a stud in that direction...". So I never get around to ordering the actual bricks as I keep on tweaking the design, never really being entirely happy with the current design.
  8. Anyone know what's the issue this time?

    In general, as regards morals, I tend to feel a strong dislike towards anyone, movies certainly included, that tries to force morals down my throat. And, as I have gotten into my thirties, I have gotten way too cynical to be affected emotionally by such a ham-fisted and easily predicted "twist" in the story. I think that's a big part of why I reacted so badly to this movie. But also...

    Saw it yesterday. To be honest, I'm not overly happy with it. It was quite good, I thought, until the end. But then... Oh my, that end... It was just so overly moralistic that it tainted the whole movie for me.
