Kindle Pt.2, Lego Yankee Stadium

October 2, 2008

First, another note about the Kindle: Although it doesn’t read Word documents, it reads email and PDF. They give you a special email address to send things to your Kindle, so if you’ve got something that you want to read on it, just copy and paste it into an email, and send away. I agree about the design; it’s not the most attractive gadget out there. However, if you find yourself having to lug around a lot of books, this thing can be a lifesaver.

Second, a post from our new correspondent:

    Mike, I wanted to tell you something. My friend and I worked at the Music for Relief booth and Projekt Rev. That game, Ultimate Band or whatever it was called SUCKED ASS. Did you play that crap? No? Well, don’t because it’s a piece of shit. =)

    (1) Whenever I read Secret Asian Man, I automatically burst into “Secret Agent Man”. Thanks. (2) I saw the Kindle advertised earlier this year on Amazon. I actually asked a few publicists from a publishing company what they thought of the device, and how it would change the publishing industry, but they didn’t seem too concerned and dare I say, interested. Didn’t everyone witness the rapid demise of CD sales with the advent of the .mp3? Publishers will get get a swift kick in the ass if they don’t plan for the revolution. (3) The stadium is cool, (especially with the subway tracks), but the Lego version of “What I’ve Done” is cooler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxLvnLI6GlU

    im thinking if i should ask for a bucket of LEGO blocks for a b’day gift😀

    Oh, It looks fun, but I don’t have time for this. OK, you’ve already mentioned that we find wrong info about you in wikipedia, I can say that it’s not only there (I find it on different fanpages). Joe has posted this on his fansite: http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/articledisplay.jsp?vnucontent_id=1003869704. Is it true? If it’s true, why didn’t you post it on your web site? I think we should read such important news regarding your future projects on your web site. It’s the same with your interview at Blogworld, we find it everywhere, but not on your web site. You could think about creating a section “News” on your web site. Krassie K.

  13. ms_shock on October 3, 2008 at 11:17 pm

    Oh My Gooooodness……………….. I have a huge box with 5000 pieces (but i already don’t use them lol) but 45000………. Shit i thought it’s unreal!!!!!!! Mike, if somebody suggest you to build the same one for money ($1000000) will you agree? xD

    I started smoking Legos a few years back… I managed to gather all the newest sets to create the Ultimate Lego Town on my Kitchen table. It was the greatest thing ever. The best part is what happened when someone needed to eat. Don’t Touch my Lego kingdom, fool! Eat on the Floor! Kids? Pfft. Get the hell off my Legos. hahahahahahahaha!

  15. Mikeshi_Linkfort on October 3, 2008 at 3:01 pm

    Yes, I agree likely there is no such child which did not play Lego, even in Russia many took a great interest in this in the childhood. I think that it would be symbolical to make lego-video on a song In pieces… By the way very good song one of my favourite.

  16. NeneLP88 on October 3, 2008 at 2:41 pm

    I love Lego. I guess there’s no kid who has never played with them. I used to spend hours =] I had the girlish ones and i had made a ranch with so many horses and a mansion. I loved it. =P

    Have you ever seen What I’ve Done and Faint lego-videos on YouTube? you should check them out.

    And the stadium would kick ass, more than it actually does now, if that dude put all the people inside😉

  17. Doggie24690 on October 3, 2008 at 2:29 pm

    Haha, that’s awesome. There was a guy that does lego models on the news last night, I’m not sure if this is the same guy though. Good stuff.

    “SECRET ASIAN MAN”

    Months ago a friend and I were watching a show called Ninja Warrior (have you seen it? it’s on G4). Anyway, for some reason we both started singing “Little Asian Man, Little Asian MAN!” Ahhh good times.😛

  19. Curiosa on October 3, 2008 at 12:59 pm

    Oh wow now that’s talent. There’s so much detail it’s unbelievable!
    Have you been to Lego Land over there in So Cal? I heard they have basketball players made out of Legos. Hey I have pics of displays from the Lego store up on myspace. Feel free to share the Lego pics if you’d like.
    Here’s the link. Have a good weekend.

  21. ShadowerLiltani on October 3, 2008 at 12:33 pm

    JHURYN, I agree about playdoh needing spotlight. I love playdoh. But anyways, this building is freaking amazing, and I have to show it to my dad, he’ll love it ^___^

  22. Jhuryn on October 3, 2008 at 11:45 am

    Wow, I don’t even know what to say about that. Legos are kind of cool…

    Where is the Play-Doh artist?! That stuff is dope!

  23. l_kotovicz on October 3, 2008 at 11:23 am

    OH MY GOD! Lego is my childhood. I always wanted to be an expert in assembling of lego and, most importantly, build in lego the stadium of my soccer team of Brazil: Coritiba! o/

  24. keineAhnung on October 3, 2008 at 11:10 am
