I originally intended on posting about one of my first inspirations, Lego, but realized that the Lego world has grown exponentially since the Internet has taken over the world. Their are sites to post your creations, hack Mindstorms, and buy individual pieces. It is too much. Instead, I decided to post about a site I stumbled upon, Brickfilms. Brickfilms is a collection of Lego-based stop animation films. The creativity of people never ceases to amaze me. In this day and age when corporations would prefer that we passively watch their movies and buy their stuff, it is great to see that the Do-It-Yourself culture is just a strong. That might be a harsh way of stating it, but I am a big advocate for keeping the mind at work and having a creative outlet. It might seem silly to others, but it keeps these people entertained and mentally nourished. Plus, they get a great product from it. Keep on doing it!
