The Lego Movie comes from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the directors of 21 Jump Street and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, not to mention the late, great TV toon, Clone High.

This is one of the most inspirational stories ever.
Oh. My. God.
Is this a true story??
holy shit I didnt know that
This is too amazing to NOT reblog, so inspiring.
That is amazing.
As well as Matt Elliot, I met another Doctor-alike, the lovely smiley Liam Dryden :D - http://liamdryden.tumblr.com/
Actually this was a rather embarrassing moment for me initially. My friend had already spoken to him at his booth, and as he passed us, this happened;
My friend: Look Lexi, David Tennant! ;)
Me: Oh yeah, he looks like him ^^
My friend: No, Liam Dryden!
Me: Yeah he looks like Liam doesn’t he?
My friend: No, no, it actually IS Liam Dryden.
Me: …. Oh! o_o
Despite my herp derp moment, he was very sweet and it was great to meet him :) Chattered away a little more at his booth as well, he was very friendly and it was lovely to chat to him :3
If you see this post Liam, thank you for putting up with the feathery lunatic!
And if you guys like my Tooth Fairy cosplay, check out more crazy OTT cosplays from X-Men, Avatar and Doctor Who on my page :D
Look how frickin cool this Tooth Fairy is
Having cosplayers come up to speak to me at events was never a big thing until Comic Con, and now I want that to happen like all the time. The amount of people like Lexi I saw who had put so much effort into their outfits, and looked like they were having SO much fun almost made me feel silly for not going to the event dressed up myself!
Also shoutout to our own COSplayers who came to visit the Chronicles of Syntax booth:

This is the longest cutless, scripted splitscreen video that I have ever seen. I am dazzled.

Oh, Carl Akeley. If I could have dinner with one person from history, it would probably be you.. so long as you could show me some of your taxidermy magic afterwards.
I’m sure I’ve posted this before. It’s Passionflower, by Jon Gomm. I’m currently learning it and it’s great and I just need to buy some banjo pegs and then it’ll be nice and easy. When I can play this song, I will be so happy. This week of assessments first! Then I will get so stuck into it!
I LOVE MUSIC.
I need to learn this (also I have banjo pegs)
Planetary Resources, the Planetary Society, and The Museum of Flight are partnering in the crowd sourcing of a “Space Telescope for Everyone.” And the perks are amazing and, frankly, cheap. $25 for a picture of yourself in space. $200 for the ability to photograph an astronomical object from an observatory in space.
I purchased package that gives time on the telescope to a classroom as well as curricula and other resources.
These are opportunities that not only didn’t exist until recently, they COULDN’T EXIST! Without the cultural concept of crowd funding and the technological progress in optics and computing, this would literally be impossible.
In fact, it still seems a little bit impossible to me…but these people are very very serious…and the cooles thing is that they’re serious about making the world a better place, educating future scientists, and building an optimistic, abundant future. This is a pretty inspiring place to be…and a pretty inspiring time to exist.
There are a lot of amazing technological innovations going into this pint-sized spacecraft. They want it to use the same optic to take pictures and transmit information to earth, which is pretty genius. They want to make literally hundreds of them to scatter around the solar system prospecting for…
