Day 746
People of the internet, more LEGO.
Haven’t done a bigger set like this since, well, the Super Star Destroyer, so I took two hours last night and built this in one go.
Love the glossiness of the new bricks, the sails and of course the Jabba minifig. The three-eyed goat dude (Ree-Yees) is pretty sweet too.
Today I built the LEGO Star Wars Jabba’s Sail Barge.

Day 743
People of the internet, treetop trekking.
Today Kemi, her friend Steve and I went down to the Ganaraska Forest Centre to hit up the rope course amongst the trees and had a blast. The balance and dexterity required to get through each course can really push you, and by the end we were all wiped.
There were tons of obstacles, challenges and zip lines to be had by all. I pushed a little harder and did the super high ‘Timberwolf’ course which was not for the faint of heart. Getting up there was the worst, it was just so tall.
Video to follow soon!

Day 742

People of the internet, it’s done.

I think I’m going to call the set ‘Zombie Cemetery’ and post it up on the ‘LEGO Ideas’ page to see what happens, what do you guys think?

We’ve got the gate, a set of graves, a few different tombs, an enchanted sword on a vine-covered rock, large pillars and two separate mausoleums.

The smaller of the two has statue inside with a simple chest, the larger of the two is a bit more elaborate. The stone casket fits in the top and the entire building hinges backwards to reveal a secret area with a spell-book and altar underneath.

Today I finished the custom LEGO ‘Zombie Cemetery’.

Day 740
People of the internet, Tegan and Sara!
They came to Peterborough Musicfest and played a full set, it was so great to see. As much as I love their new album it was amazing to hear their old stuff played live.
I was there with Ally, her sisters and a few of her friends and actually got into the VIP section to see it! The crowd was monstrous so luckily we were right up close.
Favorite song of the night goes to their closing one, ‘Call It Off’. It was done so subtly and wonderfully and it was good to see that they kept it to the very end.
Today I saw Tegan and Sarah play at the Peterborough Musicfest.

Day 736
People of the internet, the coolest shop downtown.
A local clothing store Flavour has done something awesome, they’ve made Peterborough brand clothing and it’s awesome. The logo is simple but classic and the hoodies and tanks are extra comfortable.
So I went for a bike ride downtown and picked myself up a few shirts.
Thanks Peterborough Northern Originals for giving us another great reason to live in this unique city.
Today I picked up a Peterborough Northern Originals shirt.

Day 736

People of the internet, a little vacation.

I was up at Ally’s cottage the last few days and had a blast. Drove up late on Wednesday and made it there just in time for dinner and a campfire. As it got late we even managed to get out the telescope and enjoy the starry night.

Thursday was crazy, we swam, ate, fished and took the boat out to go find a rope swing and rock wall to jump off. Then Friday we did it all again but had to call it a day after dinner and Ally and I drove home.

No cell service, but I did manage to sneak up the GoPro for some awesome looking jumping and swimming shots.  I may just save that for Ally and I, we’ll see.

Today I shared some cottaging pictures from the last few days.

Day 729
People of the internet, remember how small and dull the old gate was?
Now here’s how it is now. The new gate to the mausoleum/cemetery concept has two small walls, large pillars, a chained off gate and stone bats to top it off. Around the side there’s even a little treasure chest with bones and a skull left inside.
I love the look of the cobbled LEGO bricks, it definitely gives it an old and stone-built vibe. The zombie is there for extra effect and so you guys can see the dimensions.
I’m still working on the mausoleum and cemetery pieces and when it’s all done I think I’ll make a monster video showing off all the building techniques and little features.
Today I worked on the gate portion of the LEGO mausoleum concept.

Day 726
People of the internet, not quite the super moon.
But still pretty awesome. I took this shot with the telescope as the moon still hung low in the sky with that nice amber glow. It’s too bad it’s not 100% in the frame but I really don’t think it’s a huge deal after editing.
Today I took a picture of the rising moon.

Day 724
People of the internet, remember that Will Ferrell and Chad Smith drum-off?
Ferrel used the opportunity to raise funds for Cancer for College, an organization that he’s involved with. So I donated and now a few weeks later…this!
Today I framed the Will Ferrel signed photo. Now to find some leather bound books…
