Holy Freaking Monkey Island Play Batman!

Uh ok this has to be the coolest thing I've seen all month:

On the 21st and 29th of May 2005 a live stage version of The Secret of Monkey Island was performed at the Hammond High School in Columbia, Maryland. 18 year old Chris Heady wrote, directed, and produced the play while also starring as LeChuck. Here you can see concept design, backstage images, show pictures, and read an interview with Chris Heady, all by clicking the appropriate links above. Have fun! - World of Monkey Island

I wonder if it's on Google or YouTube!

Update: It is!

Legos, Tigers, and Bears oh my!

BrickFest is a convention for Adult Fans of LEGO® (AFOL). The focus is on having the fans bring their favorite creations, often referred to as MOCs (aka My Own Creations), to display and share with their fellow adult enthusiasts. We also have many workshops, presentations, special events and challenges scheduled throughout the weekend. This event celebrates the gathering of the fan community that has evolved as a result of the internet as well as exploring and developing the LEGO hobby. Almost every aspect of the hobby will be available to explore.

Many within the community really enjoy talking about and sharing their hobby not just with fellow AFOLs but also with others. On Sunday during the event, we will open our doors to the general public. We extend an invitation to the general public to come join us, take a look around and see some of the amazing things we have done with LEGO.

BrickFest is a event driven by the fan community. Started in 2000, BrickFest has been held in the Washington, DC area and Portland, Oregon. Each year the event has grown in size and complexity. This will be the 9th event, and we look forward to making it the best to date.

Oregon Convention Center, Sunday, open to the public. Whose in!?!
