Defective LEGO Plate

Eat your heart out Indiana Jones! I think i have the Holy Grail of defective LEGO parts.
I managed to get a defective 1x1 round plate. Most likely it came from the pick a brick wall at the Lego Store up in Denver.

I have 10's of thousands of Legos and had never come across a defective Lego until now.

The defective plate has a slight oval shape to it and as you can see by the photo its been flattened like it was run over by a car.

It looks like the full form was molded (even the word LEGO is 100% legible on the top) but it was somehow squished during production.

Lego Super 8 camera

This is based off an image found on shutterstock. Everything is stock legos except the "super sound" text with was digitally added.

Now I just need to get a group of friends together to make a zombie movie and just randomly come across a train which crashes and releases an alien into my small town. I'd be a zillionaire if I could sell that story.. oh wait, it's already been done. Darn.

Reel to Reel Tape Machine

Lets rock it old school style with a reel to reel tape machine!

This is based on my memory of what it looked like in addition to a a few reference photos courtesy of shutterstock.

As shown this reel to reel is not loaded with a tape on the left side, so the jam session will have to wait a little while longer!

Tribute In Lights

The Tribute in Light is an art installation of 88 searchlights placed next to the site of the World Trade Center to create two vertical columns of light in remembrance of the September 11 attacks. It is produced annually by The Municipal Art Society of New York. It initially ran as a temporary installation from March 11 to April 14, 2002, and was launched again in 2003 to mark the second anniversary of the attack. As of 2010, it has been repeated every year on September 11.

These aren't the driods you are looking for

I've been a fan of Chris McVeigh (powerpig) since I discovered his work about a year ago. I recently came across this image which is similar to the t-shirts he designed which I absolutely love!
