    [O-H06] Hollow People, Trouble Sleeping

    Tags: Civil Building Sector: H06 (Axle) TW: Mild graphic content. And blood. Originally this was two builds, but I consolidated. Originally I intended for the Office build to have more builds in the same vein to be accompanied by this song, but now I'm thinking the build needs something more mellow, like this. Hollow People and Trouble Sleeping by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr Hollow People and Trouble Sleeping by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "Logdate 739, this is Dr. Danielle Long, recording from temporary officespace Launchpad 6 aboard the O.C.S. Axle. Vaccine dissemination is progressing. As The Liberated Democratic Republic of Unified Onix spreads, so to does Octan's healthcare programs, and enlightened ideals. While the means employed by the LDRUO may fail to meet Octan's rigorous ethical standards when left to their own devices, under our constant scrutiny, we'll ensure both prosperity and peace for the Oni-Ren as we extract the copper we need to fuel our Awesomnium Alloy technology. As the Eyewash program succeeded under my supervision, I have decided to reopen my investigations into CEO Pombe's psychic powers. Before I attempt to conduct project Birthdayboy, however, I will need to resolve Project Suburban Soccermom. Dr. Brennier has done some fantastic work with her child, and It's about time I checked in on her... and tested the device. Barring Unanticipated delays, this will occur within the next two weeks. If the research has met expectations, we may finally be able to test Pombe conclusively, and we may then be able to devise a means to further monetize his powers, or those similar to his. This concludes my log update. Dr. Long out." Hollow People and Trouble Sleeping by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr *Sigh* Much Later, within Dr. Long's chambers. Hollow People and Trouble Sleeping by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "Nope. Stop. I'm finished." "Already?" "I'm finished for the night. You may return to your room." Hollow People and Trouble Sleeping by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "You feeling alright? You've been awful quiet the past few weeks." "Never better. Now leave. I need to sleep. And shave your chest too.

Hollow People and Trouble Sleeping by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "This is Dr. Danielle Long. Do you have a moment?" Hollow People and Trouble Sleeping by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "Always! Hold on one sec." Hollow People and Trouble Sleeping by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "I need the room." Hollow People and Trouble Sleeping by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "What can I help you with." "I... have an odd question to ask you." "Shoot." "I can't sleep." "Because of... on Onix?" "Yes." "I see." "I don't consider myself a bad person, Emily. My job requires perfection, and while I am certainly not perfect, I must meet the high standards and therefor I demand that of my subordinates as well. I do not tolerate incompetence, but that doesn't make me a bad person... The work we do on the Axle saves lives. Millions if not billions of lives. human and otherwise. This is an objective fact. At peak efficiency the Axle is a bastion of civilization in the savage frontier, but if I slip for even a moment, people die. I am not accustomed to failure... or self-doubt... but I cannot help but feel that out success in Onix was not complete... I... I'm not sure what I'm saying. I am not used to being so close to... to death. To brutality. I suppose I feel.... complicit in what just happened. Even though they weren't human, they had lives. Thoughts. I guess... How do you, a soldier with a very admirable confirmed kill-count, deal with what you must do. How do you put the thoughts aside so that you can sleep?" "Honestly. It gets easier. I do what I do for the company, not because it feels good, although I admit, I love the adrenaline of a good fight... but because what we do is the right thing. We are doing good work in this galaxy, you know. We're bringing civilization to the final frontier, and that's a messy job. All we can hope is that at the end of the day we've done more good than not." "hmm." "It gets easier." Overview of the build: Symbolic of Yin and Yang? A monocrome Octan symbol? happy accident?

  8. TO ALL PROSPECTIVE OCTAN EMPLOYEES AND CURRENT OCTAN EMPLOYEES TAKING A LEAVE OF ABSENCE: This is the CEO of Octan's Andromeda group, Pombe. Octan has achieved much here in the Andromeda Galaxy since the discovery of the GATES. Because of the hard work of our employees, Octan has the largest market share of any corporation in this galaxy. We have much to be proud of. Of the 54 planets or asteroid clusters known so far in Andromeda, Octan currently controls 25 of them, or over 46%. Additionally, we have researched new developments in the areas of spaceship mastery, ground tactics, and resource prospecting. This is a very exciting time to be a part of Octan here in Andromeda. And as I speak, the combined Octan and Merchant Confederate fleet plies the spaceways creating new opportunities for increasing our market share and profits. However, our continued success depends on you and your willingness to join us to build a better tomorrow for all Octan employees, our shareholders, and, of course, Lord Business. Any contribution is worthwhile, and we especially welcome your thoughts and voice in our own secure Octan channel. From the simplest minifig on a plate entry to an internet blog worthy MOC that scores a 7 from the judges, no build is too small to count. Afterall, I understand that our duties sometimes prohibit us giving our maximum, but your participation, no matter how small, adds up over time. I am an example of this; I am not the best builder in this galaxy or even in Octan, but my steady contributions over time have slowly pushed me to the top of this corporation. Those with small collections need not worry, as I will now demonstrate. Note that terrain builders have a tremendous opportunity here to create beautiful alien landscapes and environments. Currently, this build of me exploring the icy plains of Freegate will earn 1 point. Same of this build of me exploring the deserts of New California. And this build of me exploring the oceans of Wastyria. While 1 point might seem insignificant, 1 point per entry over the course of 30 weeks, would's see...30 points! That's enough to dominate a planet by myself! And I want to point out that Andromeda's Gates has just completed over 30 weeks. Just think about that. If you had started from the very beginning and entered the builds shown here every week, you would have dominated a planet by yourself. Wow! Now, if I were to add this Octan spaceship to the entry, this build would earn a minimum of 2 points, because of our developments in spaceship mastery. And if I chose the pilot profession, I would also earn additional credits that would go towards personal technologies that I would use to give further advantage to Octan as I improve myself! But I can already hear you ask, "What if my LEGO collection doesn't have Octan colors?" No need to fear! You can build in the colors of the other corporations and of third parties that you invent via your own storytelling! Here is the same build of my exploring the oceans of Wastyria, but with the spaceship in Kawashita colors. Note how, despite the fact that the spaceships are exactly the same, the Octan colors just make the Octan version "pop" or stand out more. That's a natural side effect of Octan's bright color palette, which photographs well, compared to the darker tones of the other corporations. Now, if I were to add a land vehicle, the build would score a minimum of 3 points, because of our advances in ground tactics! That means I would only need 10 weeks to dominate a planet! On top of that, I can now be either a pilot or a driver by occupation and earn additional credits! You might be asking, "Why would I build in another corporation's colors?" Excellent question! It's possible that I could be participating in a spy or a sabotage operation. In fact, being a special operative is one of the occupational choices! And I'm not limited to just spying on or sabotaging Kawashita. I can spy on or sabotage M.A.N.T.I.S., as well! Those are just three potential occupations to choose from! Remember, YOU determine your own fate in Andromeda. Your story is your own and the limit is your imagination! Maybe you got stranded during an assignment, but discovered a lengthy derelict alien spaceship that is powered by twin cobalt blueball engines, and now you must begin the long and hard journey back home. For those with small collections, a microscale build would work perfectly here! Or perhaps your longtime best friend, the one-eyed monster, got kidnapped by the nefarious maidens of Zimunsk and is now being tortured by non-stop spanking, and only YOU can rescue him! WHO WILL SAVE THE ONE-EYED MONSTER IF YOU DON'T?! HE'S YOUR BEST FRIEND!!! HURRY AND SAVE HIM FROM AN ETERNITY OF SPANKING BY THE MAIDENS!!! I understand that participation does not just require LEGO building, but also some photography, as well. You have to show what you build, of course! For those without a fancy photography set up or an expensive camera, no need to worry! All the photos for this post were taken with the iPhone 5. See?! Even an old smart phone is good enough! If you don't believe me, click on any of the pictures which are linked to Flickr and that will give you the information on how the photographs were taken. Finally, recently, I've heard comments about Octan's dress code, and how perhaps it is too strict. I've done my best to relax it as much as I could, but in order to encourage new employees to apply for jobs at Octan and current employees on leave of absences to return, I'm going to go ahead and remove all restrictions on our dress code. And to set an example for all employees at Octan, I will get rid of the underwear I depended so much on to carry extra lotion and performance enhancing pills. Therefore, as your CEO, I will face a new challenge. How can I be debriefed if I am not wearing any briefs? But I am not alone, for I know you will join me. In any case, to conclude: Octan needs YOUR participation. If you need any sort of advice or encouragement, by all means, contact me or any of the other Octan employees. We are all eager to have you join us to help build a better Octan, and thus, a better tomorrow for Andromeda. Cheers, Pombe

    [MOC] Car fire at the gas station.

    Panic at the Octan gas station today. The motor of a car was overheat so it caught fire. The drive left his car just in time and called the fire department. One of the workers at the gas station tried to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher, with no succes. Ather a couple of minutes the police arrived and closed the entrances to the gas station. Afther that the fire department arrived. They extinguished the fire verry quick. The fire was out and a tow truck came to tow the burned car. No injuries were reported at this fire. The car on fire in front of the Gas Station The Fire department arrives. The firefighters attacking the fire. Thanks for watching!

    Octan Gas Station Accessory Pack

    The latest city gas station set got me thinking, where is there an ATM to get cash, no fridge to buy a carton of milk, etc., so the tiger decided to toss together a few accessories. Here is the whole collection. For starters a display rack of light globes and brake fluid. Anyone for milk and cheese. Finally if you need cash...... I tossed this on Ideas, but support has been lacking a bit. Brick On everyone !

  16. Location: E11 - The Fascini Cluster Tags: Spaceship Dramatis Personae: Previously: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=139516 Currently, in the Fascini Cluster... You're unusually quiet, Eshey. Everything is numb. My brain is numb. My nose is numb. I have no idea how the events in my life has lead me to this point. And I can't remember a smell that is not flaming poop. The only way for us to escape the poop bouncer was to build this poop shuttle to get off the poop asteroid. Yes. Yes...I know. Or I think I do. Or maybe I don't really know. Let me guess...there's something that could still go wrong. Well, yes. The entire shuttle could burn up before we make it back. Afterall, the only fuel we could find is poop, so the shuttle is currently burning itself for propulsion. Of course...that makes sense. Or maybe it doesn't? I can't even tell anymore.

    [O - H04] An Unexpected Gift

    Location: H04 Crofter's Ridge Tags: Civil Building, Land Vehicle, Science Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // I was still concerned for the data inconsistencies that had arisen from my most recent work in the supposed destruction of the lab. I'd carefully checked and re-checked the data to look for any sign that the lab had in fact been obliterated. I knew that I should trust the team I had been with, they certainly had never given me any reason not to! But as a man of science I couldn't reconcile the facts versus what I had been told. I was still pondering it as I resumed my work. I went down to the Advanced Research lab and checked over the latest readings from our energy generation equipment, the efficiency is next generation compared to our current methods. We still need to make sure of the long term viability and the safety of it, but thus far the results are extremely promising. Once we validate all of our current data, the next step is to work on making things smaller and easier to mass produce. I found myself so engrossed in my work that I had forgotten all about my concerns with the lab destruction. Until I was suddenly reminded when I was told I had a delivery from The Major and his team! I went to the loading area where shipments come in and go out and found a rather odd situation. There was a worker that had a much larger gift than I expected. I was thinking there would perhaps be a small box for me, but alas I found a large robot animal. The driver said that it was programmed to be a companion and that The Major himself had selected it for me! This was clearly a sign of how much they valued my contribution on the mission and how much respect they had for me. As a robotics specialist it was really a great selection. I'm sure The Major knew how thrilled I would be with the robot and had carefully selected it. Apparently it was meant to have a roughly canine shape to facilitate human-robot bonding and was capable of traversing all different terrain. It even had a feature that reported performance and status information back to the manufacturer so that it could be given updates and also know when it needed servicing! What a forward thinking feature! I was very excited to have the wonderful gift and couldn't wait to show Dr. Allison and ED-208. I knew I couldn't tell them about the mission, but showing them this would clearly indicate how much my contributions had been valued. Extra Pics:

    [O - E11] Flaming Poop

    Location: E11 - The Fascini Cluster Tags: Land Vehicle, Exploration Dramatis Personae: Previously: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=138868 Currently, in the Fascini Cluster... What's wrong, Eshey? What's wrong?! WHAT'S WRONG?!?! I'M RIDING IN A MECH MADE OUT OF POOP RUNNING AWAY FROM A POOP ALIEN WHO IS SHOOTING FIRE AT US!!! THAT'S WHAT'S WRONG!!! Well, how was I supposed to know that the poop alien gentlemen's club had a no touching policy? The only materials on this poop asteroid for me to make a mech for us to escape in was poop, so it's not as if we had many options. Sheesh...this poop alien bouncer sure is persistent.

    [O - H04] The Lab - Pt3

    Oops, sorry this is part 3 not part 2. I forgot about the first episode. Location: H04 Crofter's Ridge Tags: Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // As we moved into the lower levels it was clear that no one was there. Given how clean everything was you couldn't guess at how long ago it had been since someone had been there either. Air filtration would keep the dust out, so it could have been quite some time or earlier in the day that anyone had set eyes on this lab. When we reached the end we came to a large storage area. There were crates and tanks for liquids that would be used in other parts of the lab. I was surprised by how much they had of some of the chemicals. Many of them were commonly used ones, but the amount present could keep a lab running for years. And apart from the chemicals being highly volatile I couldn't come up with what the combination of the specific choices would be used for. Nothing here made sense and so little of the equipment we found was anything I recognized. I told the team that we clearly needed to get a whole scientific team here as quickly as possible. The Major, however, said that we needed to ex-filtrate and use Penta-Thermite on the whole place. I was shocked, we had a lab with an unknown purpose and no one here, but they wanted to blow it up! I said that we couldn't, but he said his orders were to do just that. Asking who had ordered such a thing only got the response: "I was ordered not to tell you." Since he was technically a contractor and not an Octan employee I had no real leverage over him. He also said that it only made sense to "burn the place white hot" in case there was anything dangerous here. He sarcastically offered I could stay behind as he and the others set the charges. Despite my feelings I had little choice and we left the lab behind. I asked if we would observe from above to see that the charges went off but he insisted his stuff always works. Oddly, I noted later that no seismic activity was detected and no abnormal temperature readings were noticed on planet either. I suspect either our sensors aren't properly calibrated or a data problem. The Major said that "a team" had verified the destruction. This whole episode has left me with nothing but questions but due to security around the mission I can't even discuss anything about it with anyone, including the team I went with. The Major and his team left for another assignment and so here I am alone with my thoughts. I'll have to be careful that I don't compromise security, but I do want to find out whether our data is flawed or the sensors on planet aren't working. I wish I had been able to spend a bit more time in the lab to have a chance to look around more. Even going back to the site would be a security protocol breach though, according to the team.

  20. Dramatis Personae: And here is one of Octan's entries for the boat racing competition at the Space Olympic Games. WE'RE STANDING ON WATER!!! HOW ARE WE STANDING ON WATER?!?!?! That's not important. OF COURSE IT'S IMPORTANT!!! You're missing the point, as usual, Eshey. Anyways, the Mitgardians are renown navigators known for building ships famous for their speed and prowess. Therefore, I've asked Ethyl to build and man a Mitgardian longship for Octan. It's a shoe-in to win. Bqllr! I call her the Mitgardian Zephyr. She's fast and manuverable, and most importantly, she fits within the 20 stud length and 10 stud height requirements of the Games. Ethyl is going to race a primitive class of heavy sailship against other ships with advanced propulsion technology? Primitive? Sigh. Eshey...those other boats aren't Mitgardian. They can't win.

Including none other than Dr. Danielle Long, who was surprised to wake up to a holo-mail from CEO Pombe, requesting her presence at the games... on penalty of forfeiture of shares... Octan Olympics! by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr Dr. Long: "this looks like and engine attached to a cockpit with two wings. Is this even a boat?" Engineer: "Yup! Class 1, F. Speed class 2, $ 1, C 0, W 0." Dr. Long: "What?" Engineer: "Do you disagree with my classification? I mean, it's clearly a catamaran." Dr. Long: "I don't know what that means." Engineer: "I thought you liked boats! Isn't that why you insisted on using the Cog? I mean, apart from the fact that "Cog" is the name of a medieval ship, I can't see why you would have loyal to the brand name." Dr. Long: "Cog is a type of boat?" Engineer: "yes. From the medieval Era of European history." Dr. Long: "and was that before or after the Egyptians?" Engineer: "After." Dr. Long: "huh. I'm not a history expert." Engineer: "yeah, Let's stick to sci-fi." Dr. Long: "Sci-fi?" Engineer: "I meant science." Dr. Long: "So, this thing doesn't have controls. How do I pilot it?" Engineer: "the AI pilots for you, but you can override and control it with your helmet." Dr. Long. "Thank the stars. I despise pointless self endangerment like this, so it'd be best if the AI took care of that. Also I've never pilotted a boat." Octan Olympics! by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr
