  1. "Defying Gravity" is the most famous scene and song from the sixth longest running Broadway musical of all time - "Wicked". The musical retells the story of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" from the viewpoint of two friends, Glinda and Elphaba, which will be known as the Wicked Witch of the West despite the fact that she did nothing wicked at all. The musical looks like a comedy in some scenes and most of the time the story and mood is optimistic, but if you start digging deeper, you realise that in fact it is a really tragic story for all the characters, with a lot of meaning, so there are definitely a lot to think about. ;) Elphaba is considered strange and hated by the other Ozians only because her skin is green color. So when madame Morrible tells her that she has a strong talent in magic and promised to write to the Wizard about it, Elphaba starts to dream about how she will be accepted by the Ozians after she proves her worth to Wizard. Alas, when she and her friend Glinda finally meets the Wizard, they discover that he and madame Morrible are the puppeters behind the oppression of the Animals (intelligent creatures who able to speak), and the Wizard was going to use Elphaba for his own purposes, because he has, as we remember from the film, no real magic powers. Elphaba, who was aware of the anti-Animal conspiracy and was going to ask him for help believing that the Wizard surely will do something to stop it, is angry, so she rejects the opportunity to be in Wizard's team and desides to go on her own and fight this problem by herself. Glinda tries to calm her down, and so begins the most memorable scene in all musical, in which Elphaba defy the things that all Ozians believe in, defy all the people that have always repressed her... and defy gravity. The song by Idina Menzel (Elsa from "Frozen") and Kristin Chenoweth in a spoiler below. This photostory is a re-creation of a scene from the musical, which is longer than the album recording due to the dialogs not included in it, so all the words that are included in the soundtrack are written with green italics, the remaining words are written with italics, the words of the song are additionally highlighted with bold, and the words that are included in the song from the album, but not in the script (so it is missing during a live performance) is striken. Descriptions of actions taken directly from the script of musical. The photos are not as good as they should have been, because I was going to make only one, but then I decided to shoot the whole scene, and while I was shooting, it was rapidly getting dark, and I had to move this tower to the windowsill and use a small LED light bulb, so it's amazing that I was able to even take a picture of something in such darkness. :) Leaving creative chaos mess in the room for a whole week to shoot scene at another day - alas, not my option, cause I have not so much time now... So let's start! Be sure to turn on the music from the spoiler! :) If you turn it on synchronously with reading, then you can just scroll the page to green text and read only it. [GLINDA] Elphie, stop! Wait -- where are you going? Elphie!! A DOOR IN THE FLOOR swings open, and Elphaba, followed closely by Glinda, clambers up into... ACT ONE, Scene 14: THE UPPERMOST TURRET OF THE WIZARD’S PALACE. It is a tiny barren room, a kind of supply closet containing a few old rags and an old broom in a corner. There is one large window, overlooking the rooftops of the Emerald City. [ELPHABA] There are no more stairs (looking around desperately) This must be the attic— [GLINDA] Elphaba, listen to me -- [ELPHABA] The guards are coming up. We’ll have to barricade the door! [GLINDA] What!? Elphaba looks around desperately for something to barricade the door with; she spots a broom, grabs it-- [ELPHABA] I’ll use this— Elphaba descends a couple of steps and wedges the door shut with the broom. As she comes back up... [GLINDA] Elphaba, why couldn’t you have stayed calm, for once! Instead of flying off the handle -- ! I hope you're happy I hope you're happy now I hope you're happy how You've hurt your cause forever I hope you think you're clever [ELPHABA] I hope you're happy I hope you're happy too I hope you're proud how you Would grovel in submission, to feed your own ambition [GLINDA and ELPHABA] So though I can't imagine how I hope you're happy right now... So though I can't imagine how, I hope you're happy right now... by R2 D2, on Flickr Suddenly, on a balcony high above, we see MADAME MORRIBLE. [MADAME MORRIBLE] Citizens of Oz! There is an enemy who must be found and captured. Believe nothing she says! She’s evil, responsible for the mutilation of these poor innocent monkeys! [GLINDA] Oh no-- [MADAME MORRIBLE] Her green skin is but an outward manifestorium of her twisted nature. This-- distortion, this-- repulsion, this-- Wicked Witch! [GLINDA] Don’t be afraid. [ELPHABA] (a discovery) I’m not. It’s the Wizard who should be afraid. Of me. [GLINDA] Elphie, listen to me. Just say you’re sorry. Before it’s too late… You can still be with the wizard What you've worked and waited for You can have all you ever wanted… [ELPHABA] I know -- But I don't want it – No -- I can't want it Anymore... Something has changed within me Something is not the same I'm through with playing by the rules Of someone else's game Too late for second-guessing Too late to go back to sleep It's time to trust my instincts Close my eyes and leap! It's time to try Defying gravity I think I'll try Defying gravity And you can't pull me down... [GLINDA] Can't I make you understand, You're having delusions of grandeur...? [ELPHABA] I'm through accepting limits 'Cause someone says they're so Some things I cannot change But till I try, I'll never know! Too long I've been afraid of Losing love I guess I've lost Well, if that's love It comes at much too high a cost! I'd sooner buy Defying gravity Kiss me goodbye I'm defying gravity And you can't pull me down... LOUD POUNDING FROM BELOW... [GUARD’S VOICES] Open this door--! In the name of His Supreme Ozness! Elphaba grabs the book of spells, pages through it furiously-- [GLINDA] What are you doing? Elphaba finds a page, immediately starts to CHANT FEVERISHLY UNDER HER BREATH- [GLINDA] Stop it! That’s what started all this in the first place, that hideous Levitation Spell! Elphaba ignores her, continues chanting... [GLINDA] STOP! Glinda covers her face, frightened to see the results of the chanting. Elphaba stops. Glinda uncovers her face. Then - [GLINDA] Well? Where are your wings? (beat) Maybe you’re not as powerful as you think you are. Maybe you’re not as powerful as you think you are. by R2 D2, on Flickr But suddenly, what should come floating up but – THE BROOM, which has freed itself from the door handle! It floats towards Elphaba! [GLINDA] Sweet Oz! [ELPHABA] I told you, Glinda. Didn’t I tell you?! WE HEAR MORE POUNDING, and Guard’s VOICES... [GUARD’S VOICES] Bash it in! Fetch the battering ramikin! Elphaba grabs the broom. [ELPHABA] Quick! Get on! Glinda stares at her. Shocked. [GLINDA] What? [ELPHABA] Glinda, come with me. Think of what we could do... together. Unlimited Together we're unlimited Together we'll be the greatest team There's ever been Glinda -- Dreams the way we planned 'em [GLINDA] If we work in tandem… [GLINDA and ELPHABA] There's no fight we cannot win Just you and I Defying gravity With you and I Defying gravity [ELPHABA] They'll never bring us down... But Glinda hesitates. [ELPHABA] Well? Are you coming? Come with me. Think of what we could do... together. by R2 D2, on Flickr [GLINDA] Elphie, you’re trembling. (She gets a black blanket from a shelf) Here... put this around you. (She wraps the blanket around Elphaba’s shoulders) Here... put this around you. by R2 D2, on Flickr [GLINDA] I hope you're happy now that you're choosing this… [ELPHABA] You too — I hope it brings you bliss [GLINDA and ELPHABA] I really hope you get it And you don't live to regret it I hope you're happy in the end I hope you're happy, my friend... I hope you're happy, my friend... by R2 D2, on Flickr Suddenly a furious BATTERING AT THE DOOR... and PALACE GUARDS BURST IN, musket-like rifles drawn, and pointed at both of them. Glinda SHRIEKS - [GUARD 1] There she is! There she is! by R2 D2, on Flickr [GUARD 2] Don’t let her get away! [GLINDA] Leave me alone, do you hear--?! Let go of me! Let go of me! by R2 D2, on Flickr [ELPHABA] It’s not her! She has nothing to do with it. I’m the one you want! It’s me! But as they surge toward her, she actually appears to rise - Defying Gravity by R2 D2, on Flickr [GLINDA] Elphie! [ELPHABA] It’s MEEE! So if you care to find me Look to the western sky! As someone told me lately: "Everyone deserves the chance to fly!" And if I'm flying solo At least I'm flying free To those who ground me Take a message back from me: So if you care to find me, look to the western sky by R2 D2, on Flickr [ELPHABA] Tell them how I'm defying gravity I'm flying high defying gravity And soon I'll match them in renown And nobody in all of Oz No wizard that there is or was Is ever gonna bring me down! And nobody in all of Oz, no wizard that there is or was, is ever gonna bring me down! by R2 D2, on Flickr And we see the shocked CITIZENS OF OZ, pointing up in horror and wonder at the sight of this Wicked Witch. [GLINDA] I hope you're happy! I hope you're happy! by R2 D2, on Flickr [CITIZENS OF OZ] Look at her, she's wicked! Get her! [ELPHABA] ...Bring me down! [CITIZENS OF OZ] No one mourns the wicked So we got to bring her… [ELPHABA] (a triumphant cry) Ahhhh! [CITIZENS OF OZ] Down! Look at her, she's wicked! by R2 D2, on Flickr END OF ACT ONE You can find this scene from the musical here, but there roles of Elphaba and Glinda are played by another singers, so their voices sound different from soundtrack, and also quality of sound is far from perfect. You can play video in another tab and read italicized text synchronously with it. Anyone who interested, please check out the story in Wikipedia (listening an album first doesn't help you, cause all dialog tracks between the songs and some spoken lines are not included in CD in order to avoid spoilers), and then read the annotations and user's comments under it (some users pointed out really interesting and important meanings in comments, so don't skip it) to all the songs on Genius (and there are you'll find links on YouTube as well). Or, if you're lucky enough to live somewhere near the theatres where are performances of "Wicked", go and watch it. It is definetely worth it. ;) Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed)

    Ghostbusters gets a LEGO movie makeover! Lots of brickbuilt effects. enjoy!
  4. Hey y'all I bought the lego imperial star destroyer a couple of months ago to display because I love to glaze at an Imperial star destroyer. After a while I realised that the set 6211 really lacks in detail. So I thought I would mod it to make it look better. So I started browsing some pictures of the imperial star destroyer to get some ideas. I then came across the UCS Imperial star destroyer and remembered it existed. I then realised that my 6211 SD would never look as epic as this one. So I went to rebrickable to see how many pieces I already had. I have 69% . But I didn't want to destroy my at-at 4483 so now I still have 67% I printed the parts list and started collecting the pieces I need and circled the ones I still have to buy from bricklink. I then realised I only have 1356 pieces. thats about 33%. So I have to buy a lot more. I made a wanted list from the pieces I need and started looking for the stores to buy the pieces from. The total cost is about 450€ which I will gladly pay for an epic star destroyer. I won't buy pieces that are 30€ per piece, so I just bought them in a different color and I will just paint them. That saved me a lot of money. I didn't buy the tan magnet holders because they are 20€ per piece and I need 14 of them, so I'll just buy a different kind of holder. I won't buy the pieces for the tantive IV, I'll just make it with the pieces I have. I now only have to pay some stores and then the waiting game can begin. Thanks for reading. (can somebody tell me how to upload a picture? )

Meanwhile in Chima system where animals evolved to intelligent forms coexisted with humans in peace in a difficult balance after a war of liberation against their former oppressors and tyrannical rulers.

  10. Mark of Falworth

    (LCC) The End...

    Mark of Falworth trudged through the plains of Dreadmoor. His friends had been caught and brutally killed by his cruel enemies. Mark had barely escaped alive, and these traumatic last few days had left him very shaken. But still, he pressed on! He would reach the mysterious destination... Mark scanned the skies with a wary gaze. The dragon might still be after him, and a large open plain is not the best place to fight a huge aerial beast... Mark's well-trained ears soon picked up a distant sound... It roared like thunder, yet it never stopped. Curious as to what could be causing the noises, Mark clambered up the next hill... Mark gasped in horror at the terrible sight! A gargantuan horde of loathsome, despicable OUTLAWS! But what was worse was that the colors and emblems of the evil tyrant Galainir were distributed widely among them! This enormous pack of rogues was in the employ of the false Queen! They were heading North as Mark was heading South! They must be on a destructive route to Loreos and the rest of Roawia! Mark then realized they weren't heading due North, they were heading straight towards HIM! Yes, Mark had been spotted as soon as he had espied them... Quite adverse to fighting alone what must be upwards of ten thousand men, Mark looked round for some advantage or means of escape. But there was no tree or rock or anything whatsoever to hide in or among. He could run, but the lighter equipped brigands could outdistance him by paces... In short, Mark was Doooomed! Mark resolved then and there to fight to the bitter end. He had nothing to lose! He would give his contemptible adversaries a battle to remember forever! With a broad smile on his face and his trusty sword raised high, he burst forth with his nation's famous war-cry- FOR THE GLORY OF LOREOS!!! (LCC) The End... by Mark of Falworth, on Flickr (LCC) The End... by Mark of Falworth, on Flickr (LCC) The End... by Mark of Falworth, on Flickr ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PART 2 2When we last left Mark of Falworth, he was facing off against a horde of loathsome Outlaws! The first warriors who came within reach of Mark's sword were speedily cut down. Mark charged furiously into the great mass of men! Mark slashed and chopped and parried and stabbed in an uncontrollable surge of adrenaline and rage! After a dozen had fallen before his sword, the Outlaws paused in sheer disbelief. Fighting 12 opponents at a time, he still drove them back and held his own! The respite was momentary, as the Outlaws were burning for vengeance against years of disastrous crusades (Some instigated by Mark). More and more fell, and Mark was thought to have fallen dead more then once, but then he would erupt from a pile of struggling bandits and rain down his deadly blows faster then ever! For 7 long hours the carnage raged, and nigh a hundred Outlaws had died trying to bring down the knight of the everlasting smile and perfect hair (which still remained perfect despite the intense action). But even the bravest cannot fight beyond his own strength, and each wave of opponents was getting harder and harder for Mark to drive back... The Outlaws gathered together shoulder to shoulder for a final rush towards their target. Their war-cries grew stronger as Mark's strength faded. But just before they could deliver the death blows, a tremendous, eardrum-bursting roar shook the entire battlefield! Every warrior stopped and looked to the heavens from whence the rumble came. Lo and behold, a colossal black creature descended on the mass of men. Fangs glistening, enormous wings spreading forth in terrible glory. It was none other then the fearsome dragon Cyricus the Mighty! The great host of Outlaws fled like mice before a lion. The Dragon landed with immense impact, feet away from the exhausted Mark. He had no energy left to run, or even to raise his weapon. His voice had long since dissipated. He looked straight into the jaws of death, and smiled. At last his time had come. The massive claws and teeth shrieked towards him as he fell senseless to the ground... (LCC)The End... (Part 2) by Mark of Falworth, on Flickr (LCC)The End... (Part 2) by Mark of Falworth, on Flickr (LCC)The End... (Part 2) by Mark of Falworth, on Flickr To be Continued... Next year! So this was a fun MOC to make. I really wanted to try out a cliffhanger in a story MOC.

    The Siege of Troy

    Achilles chased the Trojans to their city. The gods, seeing that he had killed too many of their children, decided that it was his time to die. He was killed after Paris shot a poisoned arrow that was guided by Apollo. --------------------------------------------------------------- Yeah, never anger the gods kids... This scene is loosely based on the actual Siege of Troy. I don't really know much about the story, and I haven't read the whole thing yet so if it's not 100% accurate just enjoy the build. More pictures on Flickr! Thanks for viewing and have a great day!

    MOC: Bad Luck Brian

    MOCathlon 2013 - Category 4 - Fail like a Boss "We have all seen it, people trying to do crazy things that would look totally awesome - and then CRASH, BANG, SMASH! What a failure! Build us a 16x16 vignette showing an epic fail. YouTube is great inspiration for this! To cater for viewers' sensitivity, minifigures are not allowed to be shown as dead in this category." Clutch builders. yes this does fit in the 16x16 limit, on a diagonal. this was fun too build, although challenging, mosiacy sort of thing is not one of my strengths, and having the size limit made it harder. anyway hope you like it! enjoy!
  14. Built for the Heroes Guild of LCC, Level: Journeyman(2) "Your hero slaying a monster." Mark of Falworth won a major victory in the Siege of Lost Souls, The Outlaws were thrown from the massive walls and the fierce Dragon was finally forced to flee before the swarms of knights. The casualties were numerous on both sides. And the Castle was soon abandoned by the crusaders as they didn't want to leave a garrison behind in enemy territory. A fortnight later, Mark of Falworth and his companions Vaasco Suariz and Gonsaluus Petri (both valiant knights of the realm) were on a simple reconnaissance mission, when they spotted a huge object in the sky. They quickly realized it must be a Dragon, indeed it was the very one they had faced only a little while ago. It was careening right towards them! Vaasco shouted, "Forsooth, my liege! Let us with due expedience make our way towards yonder thicket that we mayest avoid the fierce Dragon, which would seek to do us grievous ill!" "Nay," replied Mark, "For yonder dragon did accept battle on my terms, so will I accept battle on his terms..." Gonsaluus interrupted, "But sir, verily even the bravest of knights would not dare to battle a dragon single-handedly, especially considering every knight's life is needed for the cause." “Thou speakest wisely Gonsaluus, but this dragon, surnamed ‘the cunning’ for his shrewdness of brain, can still be defeated by clever stratagem.” Mark winked at his companions, then dismounted from his horse in one fluid motion and marched alone towards the beast. The dragon, with a great flurry of its wings, landed a few yards away and breathed a blast of flame at the knight. But Mindarus the dragon was too far away for the fire to have any effect. Especially since Mark of Falworth was clad head-to-foot in steel plate armor... Mark jeeringly called out to the monster, "I bid thee good day, fine fellow. But, sink me, I cannot feel the heat of your fire! are thou still out of breath from the beating I gave you two weeks ago?" Hearing this rebuff, The Dragon lunged forward with a furious snarl, And inhaled deeply so as to scorch Mark to a crisp! Mark leaned back as if about to be struck... And at that instant, just before the Dragon breathed forth the flame, he hurled his sword straight into the throat of the vile creature! The monster reared back in shock and pain. Then, turning its head to the heavens, let loose a roar which shook the earth for miles around as blood and fire shot towards the sky. With a low moan and a deep shudder, the beast slammed into the earth, its head at the feet of the triumphant knight. As the brightness faded from the dragon's eyes, Mark said "Take no offence, sir dragon, But thine head will make a most worthy present to the King." And so the evil dragon, Mindarus the Cunning, was defeated by the equally cunning Mark of Falworth For the Glory of Loreos! Thanks for viewing and have a great day!
