On BrickFair (and that year-long absence)

Posted by Zatth , Jul 26 2017 · 118 views

Hey all.
So, first things first, the bad news: I've known for about a month now and hadn't yet made a Blag post because I didn't want to have to say it, but I won't make it to the Faire of Bricks this year :/ Four months back I agreed to go on an all-expense paid trip to South Korea with the university's Forensics Team to do some lectures and judge an international competition. As luck would have it, I found out three months after the fact that the dates would be exactly the dates of BrickFair VA. It looks like I might be back in the States by post-BrickFair Monday shenanigans, so I might be able to make that if jet lag allows.


But yeah. Sorry y'all :( As much as that trip is fun, honestly nothing can be better than hanging out with awesome humans for a week, geeking out about LEGO and Galidor ('kay, maybe the latter is only a few of us).

On the year-long absence from the site: Similar deal as above. Senior year hit me harder than Makuta's sleeping curse on Mata Nui, and from graduation to Senior year with the Forensics team to an... interesting tenure in Student Government to starting a Masters and getting hired at the LEGO Store at Tysons Corner, life has been far too life-y and eventful. But now that things are falling more manageably into place, I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things here and revive a few projects on hold since last year's BrickFair.

Anywho, thus Zatth rose from the Shadow Realm to once again prowl BZP. Or something like that!

Totally Not Late and Very Super Comprehensive Summary of BrickFair (& Knuckles)

Posted by Zatth , Aug 11 2016 · 335 views

At first I was gonna try and write comedic, but the blag title takes care of that. Rather, I'll just be thankful again for something like BrickFair.

After so many years of BrickFair-ing, facilitated by a site like this, you realize just how lucky it all is. Being able to see friends once a year yet feel like you only said goodbye last month, being able to meet individuals who have at times been moderators and deity-like heroes, or members and usernames, and be reminded again that they are first and foremost real and wonderful and silly people. Being able to host panels and film Vines and geek out over the same toy and laugh through tears at obvious jokes and hug through tears at saying goodbye... and somehow be certain that come a year you'll be reliving much of this?

Seriously, BrickFair is so special to me and many others I can keep saying why I love it. I'd much rather thank BZP, the Staff, the members, the lurkers, the MOCing people, the writers, the creators, the audience, and honestly anyone who has done something for BZP to keep existing and therefore the Staff and members to have reason to return and therefore BrickFair to keep happening and therefore creating smiles and memories for so many of us.


If you ever get the chance, try to come to BrickFair and find the joy that has meant so much for many of us.

(What's that? No, I'm not crying, you're crying.)

BRICKFAIR MESSAGE INCOMING (for those attending and not attending):

Posted by Zatth , Aug 01 2016 · 350 views

So BrickFair VA is coming up soon. And there are important messages for those of you who might be there!

1. There will be a panel between BZP staff, TTV staff, and myself as a BZP/Muro hybrid [insert your Time Lord/Dalek The Hybrid jokes here]. We'll be discussing BIONICLE, our respective sites, and the online community as a whole. Trust that with me as the panel's moderator it will crash and burn gloriously, and you will not want to miss that! (SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED)

2. Hatpile 2016! No set date/time yet, but trust that it will be quite hatty and brilliant. Let's keep contributing to Sumiki's back problems from wearing all those hats year in and year out!

3. Livestreamed BrickFair tour! For the past few years I've done a Skype call with the lovely Brickeens for him to see the State of the BrickFair (and say hi to other BZPers and Staff)! This year I'll be trying to do this on a larger scale, live streamed either through YouTube or Facebook for anyone to enjoy! What date/times would work best for you all to tune in to the tour?

4. Come say hi! If this'll be your first time, don't hesitate to come up and hang out with us. I promise we don't bite. Well, most of us; I can't promise much if we haven't had our breadsticks (SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED).

BrickFair Funk

Posted by Zatth , Dec 31 2015 · 545 views

Fun fact: Team Farm Animals actually sometimes tries to plan Vines or other shenanigans during every BrickFair. Sometimes they start as a joke or a throwaway line, and end up becoming a project that takes all five days to film and even more to plan/record/edit.

There's still a day left in 2015 so this is not technically late. Anyways, enjoy. Also, stay tuned next week for the Behind The Scenes at our bloopers
