It’s not too often you get to see your likeness in Lego form, but that’s just what I got to see yesterday after sweating a few years of life out of my system mowing. Mr. Storey, aka Mr. 1537, sent me a pic which showed myself rendered as a Lego figure. If you’re not familiar with the 1537 page, you really need to visit it on a daily basis, as Mr. Storey revisits one album a day out of his God-like vinyl collection and gives a wonderful back story into the album’s history. When he bought it, what he thought of it then, what he thinks of it now, and with each post he creates the coolest Lego figures to help tell the album’s tale. I’m astounded at not only his album collection(1,537 albums he’s revisiting to be exact) but his diverse tastes. One day it may be Judas Priest’s Turbo, the next it’s Fela Kuti’s Open & Close, then the next day it’s Love/Hate’s Black Out In The Red Room, and so on and so forth. I’ve discovered some pretty amazing records thanks to 1537, including the aformentioned Fela Kuti record, as well as the excellent H-p1 by White Hills. What I’m trying to say is this middle-aged father and husband who owns one of the coolest and most diverse music collections I have ever seen is a pretty stand-up guy, and his Lego colletion is pretty impressive as well.

This is where I drop the spat and spittle, the sentimental fat and drivel... Music and such, and maybe a word or two about a word or two. Midwest point-of-view, without all that religion and gun stuff. Intellectually unintellectual. Elitist for the pizza and beer crowd. Grab a bean bag and lounge in the basment for a while, won't you?
