We love how this video starts, and how 17 minutes later, we love LEGO even more than we do everyday. You have probably seen this before, a LEGO brick, but the story of the now 80-year old brand is something we should all know. Especially when animated and made by the good people of LEGO themselves.

We have covered the work of Denmark's Huskmitnavn on the site and in the magazine before, and he is always busy with numerous projects and exhibitions going on at once. Currently, there is a large exhibition of Huskmitnavn's work at the Kos Museum in Denmark, spanning the many styles and mediums that the Copenhagen artist is known for. Nothing makes you smile like a good Husk sculpture. Remember, Huskmitnavn = RememberMyName.

In honor of Denmark winning in the Euro Cup yesterday over the Netherlands, we are really into the work of Danish painter, Peter Ravn. Known primarily for his work in design and music, Ravn has been working on these vivid, bold series of paintings, which are at times disturbing but always engaging.

They even let the Danish Crown Price Frederik place one of the last blocks on the tower, to honor the 80th Anniversary of the famed toy company, LEGO. In Seoul, Korea, in front of the Olympic Stadium, 4,000 children and over 500,000 LEGO blocks came together to create, at least for the time being, the tallest LEGO tower ever constructed at 105 feet. If this were done in America, after about 3-feet the kids would have been bored.

Loving this photo of Ari Marcopoulos' that is one his show flyer for Here And Now at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, Denmark. And just as Ari wanted, this new exhibition features works only from the, wait for it, here and now. As V1 writes of the famed photographer, "In Here and Now he (Ari) wanted to just show his work from 2012, and most of the prints, as can be seen from the date stamp in the lower-right hand corners, are from March this year."
