So how are my favorite Addicts doing?
Wookiee chiming in with a little bit of silly news about The Simpsons. I’m sure by now a lot of you have heard about The LEGO Movie, right? Well, me and my little Ewok went to see it last week for a little Daddy-Daughter time and I have to say it was quite awesome. For anyone who has seen it, is that “Everything is Awesome” song still stuck in your head?
Well, I believe in sharing the madness with people I like so here’s a youtube video of the song for anyone so inclined to have an uber catchy song stuck in their noggin. I think I love this so much because Lonely Island was involved in the song. Those guys are hilarious.
If you skipped it, I understand. Fair warning though, if you watch the movie, you won’t be as successful keeping the tune out of your head. I’ve been recycling it for days now lol and must admit the song is downloaded in my iTunes.
So…… you may wonder why I even bring up this movie in a post on a site about TSTO. Well, it’s really quite simple…. Milhouse is in the movie! There’s a scene in it where the main character, Emmett, goes to Cloud Cuckoo Land to meet the LEGO master builders. Among a ton of superheroes, Abraham Lincoln, Shakespeare and others is the one and only Milhouse! You can see a blurry version of our favorite friend of Bart here.
There are even more images over at brickipedia (the dedicated wiki to LEGO). Click here to see more of Milhouse in the movie.
How cool is that? Of all the characters from The Simpsons to include in the movie, it may seem strange to put Thrillhouse in it but I loved seeing him show up. Every once in a while things need to come up Milhouse, right? Strangely, it seems the more time I spend immersed in the world of The Simpsons, the more I notice them everywhere.
For anyone not living under a rock, you may have also heard that LEGO is releasing building sets based on the Best. Show. Ever.
The first offering is the Simpson family’s house including the family and Ned Flanders. The price tag is hefty ($199.99 US) but I so want it! I’ve seriously considered splurging with taxes this year but haven’t completely made up my mind. As a young Wookiee, LEGO was one of my great joys and there still is a giant bucket of blocks in storage I’m sure. My favorites were the castle and pirates sets. I always ended up building my own thing. As an adult, I love seeing kids still playing with them even if I cringe at the price tags. Star Wars showed up in LEGO form so it’s only natural for my other love to make it’s appearance and taunt my wallet.
Just for fun, I found another great LEGO representation of Milhouse. It looks like this fan made these in his bedroom. So incredibly rad IMHO.
And there you have it. A catchy tune in a movie including Milhouse, a bit about a new “toy” I’m sure a lot of grownups will be owning AND some LEGO fan art.
If you’re seriously a LEGO buff, there’s also word of an upcoming episode in May that will be animated LEGO style. Check out this link for more info. It will coincide with the 550th episode. Take that everything else!
I personally think the movie and the song have a great message for kids and grown-ups alike. Everything is truly better when we stick together. Everything IS awesome when your part of a team. I think we get that here in our community of addicts.
LET’S PARTY 4EVA! TTFN… Wookiee out!
