I convinced Black Six and ChocolateFrogs to record a video while we were at Scouting 4 Bricks. I had footage. I edited. Now there's Elmo yelling fire, a new BZP t-shirt emblazoned with Black Six's words, and an uncomfortable zoom into a horrifying LEGO walking figure. Please. For your sake,
. And certainly don't stay long enough to see the two times Elmo appears.
I need to find ways to keep writing daily And hey, at least I'm feeling this one, since it's basically my excuse to go back through everything BIONICLE and refresh my memory. So, without further ado, an Epic! ...thingy, sorts of!
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 V
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 firs

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
Hey all! We now have our guest for next month's episode, so if you've every wanted to ask Takuma Nuva a question, post those questions on the Meet The Staff topic and they will most likely feature in next month's episode! *zatth out*
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
ChocolateFrogs inquired about the subject in the latest Meet The Staff episode, calling me "the leading face for the Spanish[-speaking BIONICLE] online community" (which is too kind; I am nothing of the sort). Nonetheless, it is true that over the past year I've been helping out to give back to the Spanish-speaking community. This has taken the form of a YouTube channel I started last year called El Muro De La Historia, or Wall Of History. I mention it now because I wasn't entirely sure I'd co
Made a topic for BZPers to discuss/plan/worry over NaNoWriMo! Head on over there to exchange novel/NaNo info, pitch ideas, and in general see there are many of us who are wild enough to try and write 50,000 words in one month!
Ended up not being able to visit Brickeens as was planned :/ Realized the night before flying that Ireland isn't part of the U.K, and so I needed an Irish visa to visit Ireland (the benefits of being Colombian: you're internationally stigmatized due to your nationality). Had to cancel the trip at the very last minute. But on the bright side, it looks like the office in London should allow me to get an Irish visa quite quickly, so the trip is just postponed, not cancelled! Started as a studen
(okay, i should provide some context. we have a vacation week starting tomorrow, and my trip will include legoland windsor on the 27th, doctor who experience and cardiff on the 28th and 29th, and then a flight from bristol to visit brickeens. spoiler alert: the trip to visit him was actually the reason for the study abroad program)
I'm sitting in a flat in the centre of Oxford, doing a semester-long program. A year ago, we never would've imagined that I could live alone. That I could live alone in another country, without my doctors and parents. That I could study and be myself and learn and make mistakes and keep growing. I'm sitting in my (not really mine) creaky black chair, putting aside a one-page essay I have to finish, in order to read breaking news. Around 30 minutes ago, the announcement came that the Colomb
There's a tower built by William the Conqueror, it's one of the two oldest buildings on campus. And it's a block away from my flat. I pass it on my way out every morning. What is this place and can I haz it forever. (also hi yes i am safe and sound and england is lovely)
Yes, I apologize. I should've planned out in advance that GMIF and BrickFair would take up more of my time To show that I do know where we're headed (and I've just been a lazy walnut who hasn't been able to sit down and write), here are some glimpses into the next chapter: MASK OF BOTOX SUIT OF ARMOUR MORE TERRIBLE DIALOGUE (i sorry, i just not have had enuff time to do stuff)
This is the sixth year that Summer for me sees its end. I use the capitalized Summer because, while the period between June and August is technically summer, Summer refers to the period from GMIF to the last day of BrickFair activities. I can't state how much Summer means to me. I leave physically spent and exhausted, but emotionally fulfilled in ways that shock me months down the line. Seeing people you only get to see once a year kinda does that to you, and especially when every moment wit
