Its too late to give this a title
Song: Eddie Vedder- Society
Here are two photos from my historical collection. I only collect photos at their highest digital quality. Why? I don't know... maybe it brings me back to my days as a child when I was collecting marvel cards and comics. I think the same goes for the photo above. I remember loving legos as kid. After collecting and building several sets, I would take everything apart, put all my lego pieces in one pile, and just sit there and see what my mind would come up with.
I recall constructing a lego robot that resembled Optimus Prime, although I never did watch Transformers, I think the real concept came from watching Short Circuit. I would rather take Johnny 5 over Optimus any day. Prime has a personality of a sloth.
Now, as an adult, I can't really get away with tinkering with legos, instead I am drawn to household objects. And instead of simply snapping my pieces together, I now utilize more grown up things like, soldering irons, drills, electric saws and blow torches. I raise my red bull as a toast, "Here's to not losing any appendages."
Till next time,
