Habemus papam

Johannes (Jojo) Koehler notes the election of the new pontiff with Habemus papam. This replaces the black smoke version from the first day's ballots.

One from me. Just a little vig to share your first cup of coffee, Juan Valdez.

MichLUG meeting and vignette contest

This Saturday, MichLUG is holding a vignette contest at their meeting in DeWitt. After pictures and winners are posted I'll be sure to note them here. If you are in the area and wish to participate, details can be found here. Thanks to both Jason Spears and Larry Pieniazek for pointing me to this information.

It looks like MichLUG, the Michigan LEGO Users Group, is having a vignette contest. I'll post more on this when I learn about it (perhaps any Michiganders could leave a comment?). Anyway, cjdoyle has created this vignette, Snacktime.

Art Museum of LEGO Vignette

I just found what seems to be the Japanese equivalent of VignetteBricks! The Art Museum of LEGO Vignette. It is in Japanese, but from my Babel Fish translation, it seems that there was an intitial thread on a Japanese-language message board (which seems to have a broken link), and various contributors built their own vignettes. Those creations, as well as more recent vignettes by AFOLs from Japan, are documented in this on-line museum. There are lots of great MOCs there (though I have to admit that I don't get some of them--I assume they're related to anime or other cultural references that I don't recognize). Here, for example, is one entitled Chim Chim Charee by Tera.

If someone knows more about this site, or if they know about the Japanese-language message board where these creations were first posted, I'd love to know more.
