Determine never to be idle

We got lost in the process of brick making and firing. The sounds and the rhythm of the work, the patterns, the processes. An amazing day! [more inside]

An unexpected gathering of bricks

What It Takes to Build a Lego Hobbit [cached version] - How Lego's An Unexpected Gathering was designed from the 2,700 pieces of the modern Lego "system of play", which remains compatible with a brick design that goes back to 1958. Despite worries that the stacking brick system has become less creative, a persistant series of complaints that have spawned their own bingo card, it remains hugely popular, in part through quality control and clever licensing. The Lego Bag-End house also comes in a life size version.

Magnificent obsessions

Jay Raymond collects irons. Until 2007 he collected only streamlined irons: In the U.S. this meant irons made between 1932 and 1952. In 2007 he sold that collection of about 180 irons, and he now collects electric irons made between 1890-1925.
Alan Davies collects old bricks.
Rev Doug Dawson owns about 900 harmonicas.

99 Tetris bricks on the wall, 99 Tetris bricks, take one down, toss it around...

99 Bricks is what you get when you cross Tetris with Jenga. Instead of keeping your tower's height to a minimum, the goal is to get it as high as possible with 99 bricks. And the bricks don't stick to each other anymore. One wrong placement and they'll fall all over the place.

Stop motion animation using LEGO bricks.

Stop motion animation using LEGO bricks. "Some of these movies will be quick childish animations, some will be well thought out, lovingly crafted works of intelligence and creativity."
