Brickfest Space Awards

Remember Brickfest? Well, if you're a vignette fan and you haven't registered yet, here's another inducement in addition to the Vig THIS! contest. A number of prominent space builders have created space-themed vignettes to use as awards for space-themed MOCs. Try your hand and you may win vignettes by such luminaries as Adrian Drake or Gil Shaw.

Blog lately?

Kevin Blocksidge (Kevoh) and Kevin Heckel (Jonesy) have started a new LEGO blog: Golden Shpleem. Check it out! While you're at it, notice that I've got a listing of LEGO blogs at the bottom right side of my front page. Leave a comment if you know of any others that I'm missing. If you're interested in blogging (c'mon, all the cool kids are doing it . . .), the service I use is Blogger. It's free and easy to use. Probably cures warts, too, for all I know.
