    FIRST and foremost: Robotics, or anything FIRST related. If it weren't for the fact that I have zero math ability I would pursue an engineering career. But as it stands I'm pursing a career in Geology (which I do not consider second tier, as I enjoy it just as much).

    Movies - I love watching movies, thinking about movies, and writing about movies. Basically if you want to talk about movies, drop me a PM! I'd love your insights and I really don't have anyone else to talk to about movies! I don't have a particular favorite genre as I feel that each one has something to offer in terms of entertainment, nor would I say I have a favorite movie of all time. But if I had to chose a top five:

    - Raiders of the Lost Ark
    - Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
    - Once Upon a Time in the West
    - Lawrence of Arabia
    - Tangled

    Reading - Maybe I just have a thing for storytelling and getting told stories (because I'm not talented enough to write my own), but I also love reading. Again, no favorite genre/type/whatever, but I do have a few favorite authors, mainly Paulo Coelho and Tolkien. I, again, do not like picking favorites, but if I had to chose a top five it would probably consist of:

    - The Devil and Miss Prym (Paulo Coelho)
    - A Passage to India (EM Forster)
    - Bridge to Terabithia (Katherine Paterson)
    - Animal Farm (George Orwell)
    - The Giver (Lois Lowry)
    (not exactly all age level reading but WHATEVER.)

    Music - Mostly instrumental music, whether it's a film score or piano/violin music (often dubbed as 'new age'). I will also listen to classic rock and bluegrass/folk music. Favorite film composers are John Williams and Ennio Morricone, while my favorite piano soloist is Philip Wesley. And although he rarely does solo piano, I enjoy Brian Crain as well ('Song for Siena' is particularly lovely).

    Long Walks - Whether I'm Geocaching or contemplating life, I love walking and hiking. There's just something refreshing about a long walk, especially when you have no idea where you're going. I've often been told that the best way to learn a new area is to get yourself lost, and I find this to be true. So I always strive to get myself lost. Good for exercise and relaxation.

  1. I guess Big Bang Theory and Friends sold well enough to justify doing another sit com room diorama. I think the results this round are incredibly boring, but hey, when it comes to Ideas there's something for everyone and it just so happens that in this wave they aren't for me. For those excited by these results, I hope they enjoy the final sets.
  2. Right now its Sunday, because it is my day off. Whenever I get a new job, my new day off will probably be my new favorite day.
  3. I could be wrong, but judging simply off size it looks like the Gyrosphere center could be a cheaper way of getting the Indominous than the 2015 set was. Bonus Ankylosaurus, too. And baby dinos! <3
  4. For two years I lived in a small town where I just couldn't get premade stuff. It was a stressful time so I took up baking as a way to make me feel better (and make friends by sharing delicious food), and all of it had to be from scratch. (Mostly desserts, because, not gonna lie, I have a sweet tooth.) I learned a lot and continue baking homemade to this day. I feel a lot of pride when I could give someone a slice of double layer cake with buttercream frosting and tell them, yup, I made it all myself. And then they want the recipe and that makes me feel good. I'm not an expert. Not everything I make turns out well, but I always have a blast. I hope that one day you are able to break out of that grocery store and share your bakes and love of baking with more people.
  5. This set is fantastic. Love that the whole thing is an Adventures throwback and the relatively small footprint (when closed) is appreciated.
  6. There's definitely some jiggle in those guns when he touches and moves them. Makes me wonder how they're attached, and why. Maybe the rubber two-pin axle hole?
  7. Sigh. Another UCS set that isn't the ARC-170. In all fairness, though, the A-Wing is long overdue for inclusion in the UCS line.
  8. Maybe I'm a Scrooge and its just me, but I actually think it's kind of ugly. The Technic system isn't doing the aesthetics any favors, and this is one of those rare moments where blue pins absolutely ruin the color scheme. That said, I'm sure kids will vroom vroom it around happily and there's nothing wrong with that.
  9. No denying that this is a fantastic looking set, and one that I may very well for over the $200 for. I admit I prefer the original submission, but understand why the compromises were made where they were.
  10. Disappointing lack of Tangled merchandise here, but I guess it's pretty out of the spotlight compared to the more recent films and more pop-culture relevant ones that are represented here. Also Beast's big headpiece looks bizarre on that minidoll body.
  11. I must be living under a rock because I had no idea the Deep Space Rocket set existed. But it looks really cool! Love the little train cart.
  12. Very cool! I went to China a few years ago but did not keep any currency from the trip. Not sure why since I usually do. I have Euros from a trip to Europe a decade ago (floating around somewhere), and every denomination of Guarani from living in Paraguay. My family went to England for a trip when I was a small child and I'm sure I have some pounds floating around somewhere too. If my goal is to hold on to foreign currency for posterity I should probably be taking better care of it...
  13. Despite the ARC-170 not being in this poll, because it should be, it's still super cool of LEGO to do this. Even though there are already three perfectly good models of it, one of which I own, I voted for the LAAT. Does it need it? Maybe not, but it's one of my favorite Star Wars ships, and its been ten years since a prequel ship was added to the UCS line. The Escort Frigate is the obvious choice since it has yet to make it to set form, but I let my bias sway me in voting here.
  14. There don't seem to be a whole lot of books in that bookshop. Pretty disappointing.
  15. Tekulo! Glad you found a job you think is good. Hopefully it's something you can come to enjoy!
