A Day of Cascade

Posted by xccj , in Lego Conventions Feb 17 2013 · 99 views

So I registered for Bricks Cascade.  Only instead of going for the full convention, I'm only going to make it on Saturday.  All day Saturday, so any cool stuff going on I can be a part of... but nothing Friday or Sunday.
 
See, even though I've lived near Portland for years, I'm currently working in Dallas.  So my plans are to fly to Portland Friday night, hang out on Saturday, and head back Sunday morning and be ready for work the following Monday.
 
I'm lucky in one aspect that I can fly non-rev (basically, I don't pay) which means I can fly as far as I want.  The downside is... non-rev means I fill in any empty seats, and if none exist... well then I don't fly.  Or if the flight gets canceled like it did to New York last weekend, there's not much I can do.  (I know a lot of interns who's travel plans were messed up by that storm, so I wasn't the only one.)  In short, there's a chance that I might not be able to make the flight to Portland.  But so far it seems empty enough, so I'm holding out hope.
 
And I'll bring some of my MOCs!  Sadly, nothing that hasn't already been seen at BrickCon or even Bricks Cascade last year.  But if Cascade is anything like last year, there'll be plenty of room for some random MOCs that I can fill up... for a day anyway.

I punched it so hard. And then used the Force to pull it back up. Obviously.

Pro: Getting a call about an interview. Yayz!
Con: They did it at 8 AM. Don't they know that night owls are asleep until at least 11?

Enough about me, more BrickCon Captions...

I have a lot of cool people pictures from our fun times at BrickCon. Instead of just posting them all at once, I'll stagger them out into multiple blog entries, and let you submit captions for each of them / comment on em. No prize other than sharing your wit with the community.

What's this? A front page news story on BrickCon? That's right, a one week turnaround! (Okay, I know Black Six has gotten stuff posted up quicker for some conventions, but a week is still better than average for speedy convention coverage, and probably also a personal best.)

Anyway, back to caption contest...

Looking Through Pictures

Posted by xccj , in Lego Conventions Oct 09 2012 · 84 views

I kept trying to do this "Batch" thing with my camera where it would take multiple pictures right after another. But I never really got it to work very well, so even tho I had 1000+ images, about half of them are failed attempt at Batching or whatever, and most of them are of the ground or something lame like that. I'm also slightly disappointed with the overall quality of the images I took of the MOCs. Some photo editing can be done to make them look better, but it's times like these where I wish I was actually a skilled photographer and not a "point and shoot" kind of a guy.

Buuuuuuut yeah will prolly post some BrickCon stuffs soon. I'm still trying to catch up on sleep and school's demanding enough. SERIOUSLY, WORLD, DON'T YOU REALIZE THAT BRICKCON IS THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE YEAR?? WHY ARE YOU NOT DEPRESSED THAT ITS OVER?

Also, one pict of me that I've already uploaded AND I DON'T LOOK LIKE A TOTAL UNCOOL DUDE IN IT EITHER!

A Funny Thing Happened On the Way Home From BrickCon

Posted by xccj , in Lego Conventions Oct 08 2012 · 189 views

So BrickCon is over. The weekend really went by way too fast… it seems like a blur of fun and friends. At some point (maybe next weekend) I'll write a more detailed review. But it was a lot of fun and there were some amazing creations and fun times had by all.

But there's a cool story I have to tell about our trip back. Pat and Maddison (AKA DV and Nukaya) came up for the Sunday public hours and checked some stuff out. I guess afterwards they chilled out in Seattle for a while, and the rest of us packed up. Later, after the events, Velox and I started driving back to Portland, but partway down we got caught up in traffic. There had been an accident of some kind, and we were being redirected to the off ramps to go around the affected area. I don't know exactly what happened, but I think a car might have driven off the overpass and crashed onto the freeway below. Like, seriously, driving over the edge of the overpass. We didn't see a wreckage or anything because they had already cleaned it up a bit, but for the cops to direct up to the off ramp, it had to be something unusual.

But anyway, Andrew and I were stuck in the far right lanes, so we started to merge left with everybody else. We were almost in the last one, and I glanced over to see if the car beside us would let us in. And then I thought "Hey, that woman in the passenger seat looks kind of like Maddison. And that guy looks like Pat. Holy cow, is that Pat and Maddison!" Apparently I shouted out like "What the!" in a way that made Andrew think a car was about to hit us. But then he looked over and recognized them too.

Suffice to say, they did not let us merge in.

But then we got in behind them and followed them up the off ramp around the accident. We took my phone and texted them, saying we were right behind them. It took a few texts to let them know that, yes, we were in the car right behind them. :P But yeah, totally crazy coincidence on the drive back from BrickCon.

More pictures, stories, animated gifs to come. Until next year / convention.
