Monday Morning Wood

December 22, 2008


Talk about getting excited first thing in the morning. Uber-nerd and Lego-enthusiast Mark Borlase spent four years and about $3,000 creating this incredible 5′X10′ Hoth diorama. She’s comprised of 60,000 Lego bricks. Apparently they’re called bricks, not pieces. The diorama also features 50 LED lights that illuminate the Echo Base hangar and bacta tank, motorized AT-AT wenches, and a fully operational hanger door. Check out the Flickr set here.

Devon Harris and the Nets shit all over Dallas. Harris finished with a retarded 41 points and 13 assists. Kidd who?

There’s a new clip from Dollhouse online. In this one we see Echo (Eliza Dushku) wake up after having her memories wiped in the special memory-flushing chair. I have one of those except it’s for flushing my blow during police raids.

Yeah, James Cameron has got huge balls.

Yeah, the Chinese government has got huge (baoding) balls.

Pour one out for: Robert Mulligan, the director of To Kill a Mockingbird, died on Friday of heart disease. He was 83.

Woolworths has ruined Christmas. The British store has banned the sale of toy lightsabers because they look like guns. Like, caulk guns? It is pretty dope to hear that in certain British stores, you have to be over 18 to buy a lightsaber. They also have to do a background check under “Ponda Baba’s law.”

On Full House this morning, Little Richard made a guest appearance. He performed “Keep a Knockin‘” at a PTA rally to help save the art program at Michelle’s school. I was watching this at 6:00 in the morning, the whole time I thought I was still asleep and experiencing the greatest dream ever.

RBM got a much appreciated shout-out on the new episode of UYD. Check it out here.

As you gather around the Christmas tree, surrounded by the ones you tolerate and love, remember that others are not so fortunate. Jake Lloyd hasn’t worked in six years.
