Picture this if you will.
So EmperorWhenua and I have a bit of a conflict coming up. To an outsider's POV, it's harmless fun. We'll be bringing NERF swords, NERF guns, maybe even custom stuff. But to us?
This is war.
I will walk in to BrickCon 2011, armed to the teeth with a foam sword, some hatchets, and even a sniper rifle. EW will enter with guns packed to his eyeballs.
Only one will survive this foam battle.
But I will be victorious, for two reasons!
Alright folks, I'll be very honest. I have no deep desire to do an april fools' prank this year for BS01.
So yeah, let's hope BZPower entertains everyone for us. I'm sorry, but I'm not exactly in the mood this year.
Wait, you mean you haven't downloaded it yet? Why?
It's leagues ahead of IE8. And having tried Firefox before, and refusing to allow anything Google on this computer (besides Google Talk and GMail <<), and I don't even have Quicktime on here, I'm not going to try Chrome and Safari. So yeah, don't waste a comment saying I should go to that.
But I will say this, give IE9 a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised, I promise you.
Now, if you HAVE gotten IE9, disregard this rant and
So, I fell down on the sidewalk (rainy day, slipped and fell), scraped up my right knee, possibly hit my head and gained a concussion (major headache all day), and still got up and put in a six-hour work day.
With a bleeding knee, and a concussion.
And then I went in today as well.
That's dedication right there, folks. The Swert WILL NOT DIE.
So um... I kinda wanna change my blog name. But I suck at naming things (My computers are SWERT01 and SWERT02, my Zune is SWERT03, my phone is SWERT05 (the hard drive in 01 is SWERT04, kinda wish I had named the desktop SWERT02 to match Thunderbirds better but whatever)) and I really want a cool name. So submit ideas. I'll take any ideas FROM ANYONE. Just remember, keep it BZP appropriate. Also NO PONIES! kthx.
So some have come up to me on various chat programs and asked, "Do you like Coke or Pepsi?" Well actually no, they ask if BS01's going to add BL11 spoilers on the day the book comes out, but I'd rather discuss Coke vs Pepsi, so I will.
I have had nothing but good things to say about both products. On one side, I love Pepsi's Cola, but on the other I love the Coke version of the Cherry flavoring. Also, don't even try to force me to drink Diet Pepsi.
So, why discuss it? I clearly have no fav
Which should I play as when I get my hands on Portal 2? (After I beat the SP, of course.)
Pros to ATLAS: Blue portal gun 8O
Cons to ATLAS: Rather short and stout.
Pros to P-body: Taller and looks more agile.
Cons to P-body: Orange portal gun
Though both's rollcage skin is epic :3
So I had a brief discussion with my boss and others in the studio, and we discussed in detail the Bionicle MOCs area in conventions such as BrickCon. So a good question came up, is the theme of Bionicle at a convention supposed to be about the theme of Bionicle, or the parts that come with it? So I ask the community, do you consider Bionicle theme at conventions (BrickCon, BrickFair, etc.) to be about the theme of Bionicle, or the parts used? Would using Hero Factory parts be considered taboo
... I need a project. Give me something to do. ... Anything EXCEPT SKINS (@BS01/HS01 Staff) Maybe something graphical, or even EM related. I dunno. I just want to do something on Friday since I'm not working.
First off, is it just me or is it weird to have a 20 MB update download faster than it takes to install? Anyway, so a few people already heard, but remember how I mentioned I was waking up at 6:30 each morning this week to host workshops? Yeah, nobody showed up. Great. So I switched back to my normal schedule and proceeded to work on a new project. Once it's done, I will show you all. Hint: Remember Green Lantern and Captain America from the Bricks Cascade photos on the main page? They h
... What were they thinking?! ... Actually I could see that business meeting now. Nick: Hey LEGO, we have a cool new franchise coming out soon! It'll probably rival Transformers! LEGO: Sweet, now we can beat Hasbro out even more in sales! What's the franchise? Nick: Weeeellll.... And that's pretty much that. But hey, it could be worse. Could be LEGO MLP. And absolutely NOBODY wants that [/sarcasm shielding]
So, in the month of January 2012, I approached (with Xccj) my boss with an idea: Build the island of Mata Nui. 10 feet by 5 feet. Terms of the agreement were clear: Don't take too long, make a kickin' model, and disassemble it off the clock. ... I disassembled it this previous week. BUT! I had help : D Lehvak taking care of the green brick Gahlok holding a 4x4 plate Tahnok and Gahlok at work. I think the Tahnok wants to melt the red brick o_o;; BOHROK VA! : D Everybody pitch
Sure, why not; Ask me anything (within BZP limits) I will do my best to answer. Now, I will also say, I may paste the questions here so people can read 'em in the same post, I dunno yet. So yeah, ask away. Edit #1: I added my replies to all of the posts, bolded, and spoiler-tagged it so it doesn't stretch the screen: Spoiler tags are for spoilers, sorry man. -TMD Valenti edit: Spoiler tags are for spoilers only. Not to prevent screenstretchingness.
A topic came up a long time ago (in a blogpost far, far away) in I think Black Six's blog. The subject was what movie order would be suffice showing someone who has never seen Star Wars the saga. Now, there appears to be several camps, with the mass majority being the 4-5-6-1-2-3 and 4-5-6 camps (skipping 1-2-3 as much as possible) but I came up with one that I'd like to share, this being May the Fourth (it still is in PDT, anyway). The order I formulated was 1-4-2-5-3-6 (then 7 when it comes
So I've come to figure, what could possibly doom BZP if it were to return?
We've covered Plushie Fad, so I'm thinking what's worse?
I am [insert user name here], perhaps? Or perhaps the infamous Ducks?
I can promise you, if Ducks came back, we'd be in trouble.
Oh, perhaps combine old fads? Plushie All Your Base? That would scare.
Let's go ahead and dedicate this blog entry to thinking of what would doom us all.
I just want to know, FROM GAMERS WHO MAY KNOW...
Halo 3, or ODST? Which should I get?
For the record, I have only played Halo on PC and the first level of Halo 2 on my brother's Xbox back in the day. I am as noobish to Halo as an Apple fanboy is to a Zune.
Ah yes, the Blog. I remember I had a blog here once... I nuked all the entries after the week was up.
So, welcome to the Swert Blog, possibly the only blog you will want to forget
I'm sure nobody here has heard of me, so I won't bother with introductions.
I'll be here all week to post what I really think about anything. Maybe it'll be good? Maybe not? Who knows? (Who cares? )
Hope everybody enjoys my works, I don't know what to say yet, post comments if you'd like, or make suggestio
So, this is a unique position I find myself in. On the one hand, I worked almost 4 weeks without pauses. I need a vacation badly. I need time to recharge my mental batteries. On the other? I spent almost 4 weeks without pauses. I forget how to -relax.- Therefore, I'm sitting here looking at random stuff online, playing music, but it does no good to me unless I go do something. Truly not in the mood for gaming, btw. ... Maybe Netflix? Suggestions? HALP! D:
As many of you know, or will now learn, I am fascinated with music. What kinds, you may ask? (Either that or you're being forced with this question.)
I'm big into Classic Rock. The obvious connection from there is my Pink Floyd collection. My original Blog title was "A Momentary Lapse of Reality," an obvious play on words from the original title, which was "A Momentary Lapse of Reason," an awesome album from them. The current one is a more accurate portrayal of that, "A Delicate Sound of Blag
