Murlson Tower . "Shot through the heart and you're to blame, you give love...a bad name." . After receiving an inspiring comment from Mark Kelso a few weeks ago, I dove into what I thought would be an epic, awesomely frightening, bloody, huge, good ol' fashion vampire MOC. Turns out I had about a third of the pieces needed to create this monstrosity. So after cursing my incompetent headlight brick supply, I set about to downsizing and eventually scratching my vampire minifigs altogether.
So the lesson learned? There's always tomorrow to build what you can't today. And know your enemy. But that's a different story.
Anywheeze...if you're about to complain about the plants (or lack thereof) I'm gonna have to tell you to cap it in advance. While building this MOC I was focusing on several new brick-built landscape techniques rather than delving into the extensive foliage collection I have at my very fingertips. So like I said...cap it. And duct tape the lip shut. And throw it in the Puget Sound.
But I am quite pleased how well the tower walls turned out in the end. Castle greebs rock.
So does Pearls Before Swine, but that has absolutely nothing to do with Lego whatsoever. But who am I to talk? Neither did Twilight. Technically I could talk about virtually anything. Johnny Cash, Snow Geese, Billy Joe Armstrong, Phipson's secret Skittles stash...
Or I could talk about how I have nothing to talk about.
That'd work. Better than Billy Joe, that's for certain.
Here we find our poor little friend being dragged to his eventual doom within the "vampire tower". So lest you suffer the same fate, go get some sleep, sniff some gasoline, and build Lego.
Oh, and before I forget...Happy New Year.
