I have spent most of the morning trying to figure out these Lego masks. As DesignBoom points out, "for London’s menswear AW 15 show, designers Agi & Sam asked UK make-up artist and beauty editor of ID-magazine Isamaya Ffrench to create LEGO masks like weird outgrowths on the models’ faces." For the most part, I'm trying to decipher if this is about the construction of human's DNA, a comment on consumerism, a way to save money instead of crazy elaborate masks, or maybe someone just likes Legos. It's the latter of the latter.

Annette Jung of Talking Animals animation studio has reenacted the beginning to MIchael Jackson's "Thriller" video in stop-motion LEGO. By using the bricks as pixels, Jung even used the bottom side of the bricks for slight changes in darkness and layered them to create depth. Would love to see the whole video! Watch it after the jump...

Like a lot of kids, LEGOs were a huge part of our childhood. There is no way we are getting rid of those 3 giant boxes of plastic bricks in our closet! Because of the incredible amount of dedication we put into building plastic space ships as a kid, we are proud that "adults' are out there still "playing" with them, and as it seems in Nathan Sawaya's case, making a career out of it!

We have been lamenting that we have to wait so long for the last season of Breaking Bad. Brian Anderson has put the long wait to good use. He has created what a LEGO computer game of Breaking Bad could look like if it were to be made. Nothing wrong with a little meth cooking in a video game, get on it LEGO! Watch a video after the jump...

Let us explain ourselves a bit here. We just brought out a 1986 Mac in our office the other day, sort as a fun reminder of time's past, also as an Oregon Trail time-wasting activity. So when we saw Chris McVeigh's original Apple Macintosh, the 29-year old version, created out of LEGOs, we felt a bit on the same page with Mr McVeigh.

There is a higher power. Somebody was smart enough to create the LEGO Hotel, placed at LEGOLAND in Carlsbad, California. First off, having theme rooms of our favorite LEGO sets would be enough, but you have major portions of the hotel built completely out of LEGOs. The 250-room hotel will open on April 5, 2013, and we might just have to report straight from location.
