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 Grochi Cat 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...

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 tylerlicious definicious 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...

Little busy from my usual loafing around today...

Chose to finally ask my long-time girlfriend to marry me.

She did indeed say yes! :D

Soooo... yeah haha. Wow.

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!

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...

I haven't been active on BZPower a lot recently, and there have been some pretty big life reasons as to why. None of it has been blasted publicly or shared on social media, and only a few close people knew. Today at 7:43pm my best friend Olena (Disky ) welcomed our little beloved Agnes into the world. :)

We had a small ceremony early this month to celebr...

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!

Blogarithm > Dear Bonkle Fandom:

Posted Sumiki on Jan 18 2015 - 08:57 PM

G1 and G2 are not related.

Yes, they're reusing names, and they're reusing elements, and the Vahi keeps cropping up in hidden ways. But other franchises have gone through reboots, and no other fandom has attempted to connect generations as I've seen here.

Please stop trying to connect them.

Sincerely,

A Golden-Red Horizon > Some thoughts on the TTV Podcast

Posted Aanchir on Oct 19 2014 - 09:02 PM

Let me make this clear: I do not hate TTV. I do not enjoy the TTV podcast (mostly just personal preference — I do not enjoy getting my news in video form when given the choice), but I respect them for what they do — and I reserve the right to be disappointed when they do it badly.

If a BZPower set review made similar mistakes, praising or criticizing fe...

when you essentially torture and abuse your daughter, lie about the circumstances of her death in your "farewell post," and continue to demean her identity in the same breath by not even calling her your daughter, you do not deserve to be parents, nor do you deserve even the slightest ounce of sympathy

this is all i'm saying about this subject because i...

Scrimmy Bingus and the Crungy Spingus > "ohwunners"

Posted Wally on Oct 12 2014 - 09:58 PM

I've noticed, especially on tumblr, a lot of people attempting to push the term "ohwunners" as a term for people who irrationally dislike the new Bionicle. Its origins are obvious; it comes from the term "genwunner" used in the Transformers and Pokemon fandoms, only with "ohwun" used to allude to Bionicle's first year.

To me, that seems like a misnomer....
