Just keep swimming, just keep swimming

Karf Oolhu shows us the food chain.
I know the currents are very dangerous here, so I've hooked you all securely to the line with safe-cuffs, the line is secured to the ship. So hang tight and they'll bring us up safely, promise.

History of Brickfrenzy

Adrian Drake has been slowly posting his backlog of MOCs to Flickr, and from five years ago he presents family at play. It needs some updating, though, as his kids are growing up.

Does size matter?

Crises laments that bigger MOCs get noticed while smaller ones do not. Personally I don't feel this is so. Here, at MicroBricks and to some extent at MinilandBricks I celebrate great smaller MOCs. Tony made a great point in the comments that venue is very important. When I'm online, looking at a 600x450 pixel photo, I'd actually rather look at a smaller MOC - if the MOC is some layout covering multiple baseplates, you just can't see the details. OTOH, if you were at a fan convention or other public showing, I can see why a huge castle or something draws attention away from a much smaller MOC.

Nnenn

From all corners, members of the community have been remembering Nate Nielsen, known as nnenn, who was recently killed in a car accident. To understand many of these, you need to know that nnenn used a rubber band holder as his online avatar. Here is one example from Michael Jasper.

Checkmate

Over on Classic-Castle there is a monthly building challenge to encourage creative MOCs. This month the theme is Chess. This prompts me to post two older MOCs of my own: Chess in the park and Checkmate.
