Geeks love Legos. Geeks love Monty Python's "Search for the Holy Grail." So why not combine them?


Even though it's missing the "'tis but a flesh wound" scene, I think this beats lego porn any day. :)

That Japanese guy, top class stuff, his new stuff always gets mentioned on C'est Need to Know. The Desperado one is my favourite.

Here's something though: I'm sure when I was little, the plural of Lego was Lego. When did this change? I'm too old.

Check out lego.com and look at uses of the word Lego. There's "Lego company", "Lego bricks", "Lego toys", "Lego group" and so on. But no "Lego". Lego seems to function as an adjective rather than as a noun. In fact they had a statement to this effect on their site a year or two back but I can no longer find it.

Modern plurals (5.00 / 1) (#10)
by fluffy grue on Sun Jan 21, 2001 at 12:47:11 AM EST

Hm. When I was growing up (and I'm almost 23), everyone I knew referred to the plural of 'Lego' as 'Legos'. Basically, 'Lego' in the connotative sense meant, "a single Lego(tm) brick," and so obviously the plural of the connotative word 'Lego' would be 'Legos'.

Basically, all my life, it was always referred to as "playing with Legos," and so that's how I still refer to it.

Then again, the jury is still out on what the plural of 'mouse' (in the computer sense) is. Everyone I know just avoids referring to the plural of mouse-type input devices...

Lego movies (5.00 / 1) (#3)
by jrh on Sat Jan 20, 2001 at 06:11:54 PM EST

Only still images? This site has links to actual short movies done with legos. For example, 2001: A Lego Odyssey.

Not only are lego movies absolutely hillarious, they're also a relatively easy way to make claymation-like effects.

Cool! (5.00 / 1) (#7)
by fluffy grue on Sat Jan 20, 2001 at 10:46:52 PM EST

I figured there were various random Lego movies out there, but it's nice to see that there's a site cataloging them. It's too bad all the indie films online seem to be done in friggin' Quicktime 4 though... :( If it were DivX I could at least watch it, but QT4 has absolutely no hope of being watched under non-"mainstream" OSes for the conceivable future, it seems. :/ (Too bad, because I really want to see 2001: A Lego Odyssey. :)

Don't own the lego studio stuff myself, but it looks pretty cool. They even have a free lego movie there you can check out.
