Be Batman

Pssst.
I have a little challenge for you.
Don’t tell anyone.
I am looking for a creative toy photographer that wants to review the brand new LEGO Batman Two series here on Stuck In Plastic. Yep, you read it right. The full series.
Not just one or two, but the whole twenty minifigures that comes out in January, including two awesome me.

The fantastic folks at TLG have given the great folks here at SiP a full box for review but the shipping elves at LEGO are super busy with this thing called Xmas and the box will only make it after the official release so we want to take a different approach this time. Continue reading “Be Batman”

Always be yourself. Unless you can be me. Then always be Batman.

Forget. Relearn. Repeat.

Initially this blog post was intended to be a successful report about my approach to the topic of last month´s word, craftsmanship.

Many moons ago in an earlier life I used to be carpenter, so the idea of craft is nothing new to me. To master a craft one has to be curious; eager to learn new things; (sometimes) willing to release the inner child and let it push all the buttons there are just to see what happens. Easy as pie. Or at least that´s what it should be. Especially when you´re an AFOL playing  working with a toy that proverbially screams for being played and explored with and bending the rules (Rules? What rules?) : the LEGO brick.

Summer Projects

Summer holidays are just around the corner, one more day of meetings with Big Inc. and then we will be packing the full crew and gear into their respective bags and carriers alike and head down south for two weeks of sunny relaxing and some smaller photographic adventures on the side.

Stuck in another photographers work

In moments when I’m in search for inspiration, I usually spend some time looking through various photo books, websites or just end up on Instagram or Flickr. Often I get stuck in a particular photographers work, and in the best cases, this exercise makes me end up in an imagery world of my own, but sometimes it just becomes an exercise in procrastination.

How the…? What the…?

Somewhere along the line I lost year.

It goes like this. My wife asked what I would like for my birthday (1/6 scale Sideshow Collectibles C-3PO with light up eyes, full articulation and bonus com-link!) when my age came up.

“48! Guess you’re an old man now!” she said jokingly.

“48? I’ll be 47.” I replied. Adding a year to my age . . . HILARIOUS!

“No Honey. You’ll be 48. We’re 47 now.Continue reading “How the…? What the…?”

Thief!

An internet Troll is a disgusting, narcissistic and sadistic creature that takes great pleasure in making you as miserable as he/she is. They often conduct their campaigns of sleaze from the safe confines of their mothers basement, a filthy toilet stall in a high school or while sponging free wifi as they sip their Venti Iced Skinny Hazelnut Macchiato, Sugar-Free Syrup, Extra Shot, Light Ice, No Whip in an over-priced, hipster d-bag coffee shop.

bring ’em or leave ’em?

I’m packing up my circus tent and going on the road.

Yup, I’ll be taking a break from this small corner of the planet and head off to somewhere much more pleasant this time of year. I do not care for winter and if I don’t have to subject myself to all of the nonsense that goes along with it for the duration, I won’t.

So off I go …to somewhere other than here and I’m taking my toys with me. “How fun!” you think, right? Continue reading “bring ’em or leave ’em?”
