Lego Exiled to Office

It's all for the better, of course. The toys would rather be with their own kind. And now the knick-knacks don't have to worry about seeing the Lego unless they want to.

Concerning America On-line Instant Messenger

... and then burn that laptop, gather the ashes and mix it with acid and then mix the slime into concrete and then row out into the middle of the ocen and drop the concrete into the sea. Then stave in the rowboat and swim to a desert island and live there blasted and alone until the memory of AIM is bleached from your mind.

p.s. I am not a crank, sir!

Kyle Beatty: I love that since July 1, 1999 there have been two pictures worth archiving. Plus one described as 'not exciting.'
Kyle Beatty: Ad copy suitable for the commercial break of any daytime game show: "Sealure is a natural hide bait specially treated with a highly potent, scientifically developed chemoreceptor scent. Sealure Lobster & Crab Bait is available from a variety of distributors."
Kyle Beatty: Lord of the Rings has a 1:1 ratio of "Thanks to" credits to frames of film. Lobstercam has Bruce Leiter.
Kyle Beatty: atwoodlobster.com sells something they call a Jumbo Lobster yet there is no link to a memorial page bringing to mind those brave lobstermen who died in hand-to-hand combat with the Jumbo Lobster. (You know, I can actually hear the whistle of my karma being sucked away by the ghosts of fishermen who have perished lobstering, just not those who went garra y mano with Moby Langosta.)
Kyle Beatty: How jumbo can anything be that fits on a plate!
Kyle Beatty: Oh, I see! A giant among LOBSTERS. Pfft!
Kyle Beatty: I've played a few chapters of Half-Life and I think I know a thing or two about fighting Jumbo Lobsters.

How I did It

I made a Lego USB dongle.

Toa Turaga Arrive



I have the whole kit and kaboodle. No need to go into detail, but they are generally superior to the earlier toys. They have a more unified style which combines, none too gracefully, Art Deco and Steampunk. The legs are vastly more posable beating even the Rahkshi in this regard but the shoulders have been rendered a little stiffly. This is a side effect of a swell gearbox that serves as their torso. Their new skull design is even scarier than the first! (Scary new skull on the right.)
