Wind's Weblog > My Identity

Posted -Windrider- on Dec 25 2014 - 01:29 AM

This has been in the works for a while now.

I have not had the gender field on my profile set for some time now, and there is a reason why it has read “Not Telling.” Tonight, however, I am going to specify it.

But I’m terrified. It’s going to take a world of effort for me to change it and to publish this post. I’ve been on this site for over a decade; s...

Kitten Headquarters > I'm tired of lying

Posted D.Va on Apr 23 2014 - 01:59 PM

You know I've always tried to be an honest person. And while I'm certainly not perfect at it I'd like to think I've done an okay job. Except with one person, myself. 
 
I've denied the truth about myself, subconsciously or otherwise. Thinking back I realise I've been doing this for years, probably since 9th grade. I'd tell myself day by day...

The Songs of Distant Earth > The Problem with Canonization

Posted Lyichir on Dec 10 2014 - 06:05 PM

The recent trend of fans petitioning Greg to canonize details of the story has been controversial. But I've been upset to see that devolve into a bunch of Greg-bashing.

Let's be clear: Greg's not the problem here, or at least, not the main one. The fans are.

They're the ones who decided, after Bionicle's end, to consider Greg the sole arbiter of canon....

Designer Dragon's Lair > Day #1 at LEGO

Posted Vezok's Friend on Jan 06 2015 - 03:06 PM

Dear diary...EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!

...no, no, not going there ^^ Though I have seen my fair share of spaceships and hundreds of other designs today. The day started relatively early compared to my old job and got interesting immediately as I met my colleague who got hired through the same workshop I attended. We had a camera team at the workshop fil...

SPIRIT's Blog > Hey

Posted SPIRIT on Feb 21 2015 - 06:19 AM

I have slept for so long.

My dreams have been dark ones.

But now I am awakened.

Now the scattered elements of my being are rejoined.

Now I am whole.

And the darkness cannot stand before me.

Bio of a BZP Admin > Milestones

Posted Black Six on Aug 05 2015 - 09:55 AM

The past few days have been full of milestones that really have been putting things in perspective for me.

I was born on August 5th, 1987. Today I turn twenty-eight! Go me for surviving this long!

I joined BZPower on August 2nd, 2001. I've been a member for fourteen years now. This site has become a huge part of my life for so many reasons.

SPIRIT's Blog > An Open Letter

Posted SPIRIT on May 30 2015 - 06:00 AM

An open letter to the people who like the things that I do not like:

Get over yourselves! Who do you think you are liking those things? Have you no self-respect? Have you no shame? They say there's no accounting for bad taste, but you take the cake. I bet you even took the worst flavour of cake. You have formed your opinions on incorrect or incomp...

What You Want is Now > NYCC Stuff

Posted DeeVee on Oct 19 2014 - 01:07 AM

I'm going to do a write-up about the entire NYCC trip, but I want to edit my photos first. For now, here's the image of all the parts and masks I ended up with after NYCC. But first, a little explanatory background:

Several months ago, I got an email from a woman on the LEGO CEE team, asking if I wanted to be part of a project she couldn't tell me about....

The Breakfast Club > I Feel Like Speaking, Part 1: The Ballad of Fabulous Jimmy and Barry O.

Posted Key and on Apr 17 2014 - 07:58 PM

I feel like people don't introduce themselves enough before posts like this, and it makes people think that they're somehow just crusading machines, desperate to spew social justice on people who just want to live their lives without being looked down on their beliefs, and I'm totally okay with that, so before we get started, hiya. I'm Ty. A bunch of you...

Mishaps and Bubble Wrap > Week One

Posted Nukaya on Feb 09 2015 - 01:25 AM

Things I have learned in my first week as a model builder at LEGOLAND, CA:
Turn signals are a foreign concept in California.
So is going the speed limit. It's either five under or at least ten over. WHY IS THIS.
The average teenage lifeguard at a LEGOLAND orientation training is very confused by the concept of an adult liking LEGO and will ask if they nee...

Designer Dragon's Lair > Starting work as a LEGO designer.

Posted Vezok's Friend on Jan 04 2015 - 03:52 PM

Happy New Year everybody!

Long time no see, eh? Even longer since I had anything to blog about. But that's about to change.

Tomorrow I'm flying to Denmark to start my new job on Tuesday. Amazing to think that in more or less 48 hours I'll be a part of the LEGO design team in Billund.


Allons-y!

Zatth Blag > Rare Disease Day

Posted Zatth on Feb 28 2015 - 04:05 PM

Hey friends!
Today is Rare Disease Day. For those of you who don't know, Rare Diseases are those that (in the U.S) affect less than 200,000 people. Nonetheless, there's over 6,000 Rare Diseases, and this is an important issue for me because I suffer from Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome Type 1. Yes, it's the reason why I seem to spend half my time in...

What You Want is Now > Got it framed

At NYCC, Julie had an extra gift for the three of us who had been under NDA with her for several months:

It is signed by the designers, and is apparently one out of ten total posters printed of this image. We finally got a custom frame for it, and now it's all pretty!

What is it about plastic construction toys that make people so unpleasant?

I'm just trying to have fun and talk about magic robots but I spend most of my time tiptoeing around battlegrounds and eternal grudges, heated disagreements about things nobody has any business even caring about, avoiding saying the wrong keyword of the week like I'm avoiding a la...

Prelude to Slaughter > Bring Back Hero Factory Club

Posted Hanako Ikezawa on Sep 19 2014 - 01:56 PM

So, as of today, Bionicle's return in 2015 is confirmed. Which means LEGO is banning the Hero Factory toyline, even though it's story didn't even get to finish. That's why I want all the fans of Hero Factory to come together and barrage LEGO with complaints. Demand LEGO finish Hero Factory! Bring back my favorite toyline! Force LEGO to repeal the ban on H...

Wind's Weblog > Today Was a Good Day

Posted -Windrider- on Oct 17 2015 - 12:10 AM

Over half a year ago, I came out as transgender.

Today, October 16th 2015, I sat in a bus anxiously for 30 minutes, after having taught my class, as I was taken through traffic in eastern Philadelphia. Somewhere around 9th and Locust, I pushed my way through the doors to my first appointment.

And if all goes well, I'll be starting hormone therapy in thr...
