Lego meets corporate office

Lego meets corporate office

Too bad I didn’t find this earlier. It’s a little late to be a Christmas gift idea. It’s Cube Figures! The corporate world captured in a weird Lego kind of way. I love how melancholy they look. Brillant. And the price isn’t too bad. $13 a set. You get one figure and his lonely cube. […]

cool old fish

The Shedd Aquarium has an 80 year old fish. The Shedd is only 75 years! The fish arrived in time for the World’s Exposition which doesn’t make much sense to me.
