First podcast! Thanks for bearing with us while we find our feet and our tongues. Please ignore the glaring factual errors and enjoy the show. For corrections and apologies, see the references and apologies below the pictures.
References and relevant linkage
Building success: how thinking ‘inside the brick’ saved Lego. Okay, this one is more stolen from, then mentioned but is some nice well-written, actually researched reading, and where a lot of my non made up factoids come from.
Study: Lego faces have been getting ‘angrier’ over last 20 years. I said this was a diagram, and that’s a straight out lie.
Weekend Box Office: ‘LEGO Movie’ Opens To $69 Million This link is probably annoying, so to summarise: $69 million, which is the best opening for a Warner Bros. animated, beating Happy Feet. You can see on Box Office Mojo that it’s currently winning 2014 by a lot.
The Lego Movie’s Australian connection with Animal Logic. Not actually referenced at all, but about Animal Logic, which is referenced.
Random derby reference clarification. A derby widow is the significant other of someone who plays roller derby, so named because they are essentially left alone and crying while their partner skates all the time.
Lego Games at Outer Rim Trading Co. An Australian site with pretty good prices. Tell them I sent you. They’ll have no idea what you’re talking about.
Lego Cuusoo. Sadly some of our favourite ones, don’t make it through the process, but are still awesome.
- Super Mario
- Sherlock, mostly for LOLs
- Legend of Zelda. There are a few of these, but this one is best because Ocarina of Time is the best game ever.
Blocumentary: Adult Fans of Lego. AFOLs are only like bronies if you think bronies are awesome.
Lego Pick-A-Brick lets you choose the pieces you want, not the ones you deserve. I believe I said that these shipped from the US but they may actually ship from the Czech republic.
Star War Lego Prank. It was the Millenium Falcon, not the Star Destroyer or the Death Star.
Lego’s ‘sexist’ Friends range for girls spurs 35% profit rise. There should be some more recent articles on this, but this came up first, and I’ve already linked to a lot of things…
Then-And-Now Photos Of The Girl From That Iconic LEGO Ad Show Just How Much Has Changed. The tagline was What it is is beautiful.
Did you know I sound like a squeaky mouse man and end a lot of my sentences with inflections when nervous? Well, now we both do (sorry). Listening to myself is akin to torture so I’d like to assure that every ummm, you know, mmm hmmm, so and unnecessary double yeah was like a dagger into my heart. I’m going to say this makes me appear to be a good listener, but makes for terrible ear viewing. I’m also sorry for saying denouement and pronouncing it the way I did (very unAustralian). Mitchell is probably sorry he used the word hoes, and I’m sorry I didn’t flip the table on him, but there was expensive equipment on it.
I am aware that AT&T is an American phone company, and AT-AT’s are the iconic walking laser dogs from Star Wars. It’s one of those things I say that I know is wrong but I continue to say anyway. I apologise for this, as well.
