And… We’re Back
I went to Toys-R-Us in Times Square today. Like everything else in that part of the city, it was a total sensory overload and I had to leave after five minutes before I went into a coma.
It did remind me of the awesomeness of Lego though. When I was a kid, my brothers used to have epic Lego battles between their teams of cowboys and astronauts. I played with them of course… running a bipartisan hospital where their troups could recover once injured. Stereotypical gender roles, yay!?
In a slightly different context, Jan Vormann’s Dispatchment project uses Lego to fill holes in walls, recently in Berlin – where most of the plugging was into gaps made from bullets in WWII.
It’s a versatile brick.
