I have been contemplating starting this blog for a few years now. I wanted a place to expound my thoughts about culture at large as seen through the lens of LEGO bricks. Previously these thoughts have been confined to my head (apart from a few conversations with like-minded individuals) and it is finally time to give them room to breathe. I don't expect this blog to ever attract a large audience, but I do hope it will be a place for deep conversations about LEGO products and contemporary culture.
Here are some topics I plan to discuss on this blog at some point in the future:
LEGO & Gender (the buzz about the new LEGO Friends line is what finally pushed me to start this blog)
LEGO & Imperialism (Otherized Violence, etc.)
LEGO & Race (The Lando Conundrum)
LEGO & Minecraft (or why LEGO Universe failed)
LEGO & Art (building on the work of Roy T. Cook)
