Someone put together the official LEGO Death Star construction kit and made a simply fantastic time-lapse video of it – what’s kind of cool is it’s not like a blocky-transition video, everything is very smooth. Plus, as each room gets completed, a demonstration of what the room does as well as corresponding audio cues from the movies can be heard. SO. COOL.
Still working on the next pictures post from Europe. I got distracted this weekend by wanting to get out of the house….and also playing Anno 1404 like it was crack. That game is a fun combination of city-building and renaissance themes much the same way Tropico 4 was….which means it’s eminently playable and addicting. We also went out and saw The Girl on the Train and it was absolute garbage. Okay, “absolute” is too strong a word, but it was such a waste of time and money. Talk about a bad way of telling a story. Recommendation: PASS. And then of course we had the second presidential debate yesterday evening and jesus, what a shit show. It’s clear Donald Trump knows how to play to his base but once you get past the 90s-based attacks and listen to his word salad, it is just shocking he became the nominee for the GOP. I’m still happily voting for Hillary Clinton and I love that he said we’d be getting a 3rd Obama term with her! I WISH!
