Dave!This morning I woke up wanting a couple of slices of toast with strawberry jam. This is nothing new, I wake up every morning wanting a couple slices of toast with strawberry jam. What was different was when I looked out my window... there was a cap of grey cloud-cover everywhere you looked, but a ribbon of morning sky stretched all the way around the horizon. This made for some bizarre atmospheric conditions that painted the nearby mountains BLUE!

By the time I grabbed my camera and was out the door to work, the blue was receding into the valleys as the sun got brighter. After I finally found a clearing with no telephone poles or trees, I managed to find a small spot that was still tinted...

Blue Mountain

What you have to do is use your imagination and picture ALL the mountains in blue. It was bizarre and beautiful at the same time. I'm pretty upset that I didn't manage to get photos, because it's something I've never seen before. Sometimes nature produces things that are stranger than anything you can churn out in Photoshop.

I'm really nervous about today's "Lego Holiday Tale." It started out as a cute story about a psychotic guy wanting to be a fireman who gets into drunken adventures with crack whores and an axe... but with each new toy that reveals itself, things just get darker and more disturbing. It's almost as if the story is writing itself. Yesterday I had a dead body that needed to be disposed of, then today a little guy with a rotary saw comes out of the Lego Advent Calendar? What kind of sick bastards have they got working at Lego anyway?

For some bizarre reason I thought that the little Lego people would alternate between boys and girls so that the calendar would be accessible to both sexes... but that's not turning out to be the case (thus the crack whore storyline that ended up going nowhere). I have no idea what's going to be popping out of the calendar tomorrow, and part of me doesn't want to find out...

CHAPTER 6: Choppin' Around the Christmas Tree
Lego Dave had to axe a crooked meth-addicted cop to avoid being arrested. But now both the fire department and the police are on the way...
"Well this is a fine turn of events, Barky!" Lego Dave said with a hint of irony in his voice. "We've got to get rid of this body before the CSI guys come and bust my ass!"
"Bark! Bark!" replies the dog.
Just then a man appears carrying a rotary saw and wearing a malicious grin.
"Hey buddy! Did I just hear you say that you need to get rid of a body?" the shifty-looking man inquires. "Why not leave that to me and my little friend... HA HA HA HAAAAHH!"
"And who might you be, guy?" Lego Dave asks cryptically.
"They call me Lego Buzz, fella!" he says through gritted teeth. "BWAH HA HA HAAAAAHH!"
Before Lego Dave can get a word out, Lego Buzz has fired up his saw and is cutting the now-deceased police officer into pieces!
"Dude!" Lego Dave exclaims with a yelp. "That's balls-nasty!"...
Lego Holiday Six
"Bark! Bark!" offers the dog slyly.
Holy crap! How much worse can things get for our hero now?

    i wonder what horrors the other boxes hold?
    the guy with the rotary saw just seems…..weird for something that children would play with. Maybe it will end up as some kind of demented lego nativity scene

  2. Chaz says:

    Wow, that’s a scary lego figure. He kinda reminds me of a pirate which seems a little strange since I’d assume the pieces of the advent calendar should fit into some sort of theme, but I’ve got to say that he does add one crazy twist to this riveting story!

  3. Belinda says:

    OK, Thank GOD you showed your sensitive, still-human side in the blue mountains, because the Lego story is getting Quentin Tarantino-ish. And I love your line about how “It started out as…” Yes, Dave, until now the story has been “It’s A Wonderful Life” told in Legos.

    I’m sending someone out to do a home-check. Hang tight.

  4. Rob says:

    What makes this so much fun for me. Is that I get a front row seat to this story. This is some good stuff.

  5. shevy-22 says:

    Whoaaa Nelly, I think I saw this on America’s Most Wanted!! Are you sure you’re not some serial killer that’s posting his latest pyschotic episode??? Keep up the great work, you’ve taken advent calendars to a whole new/weird level.

  6. Pauly D says:

    That is WAY balls nasty.

  7. Cavan says:

    Is it odd that I find the name “Barky” hilarious?

  8. Marc says:

    There’s a separate “Clikits” fashion toy advent calendar for the girls, at least over here in Europe.

  9. sandra says:

    Hey, you should check out photos of the Blue Mountains in Australia. They’re…well…blue. Clever, those names…

  10. Alexis says:

    So, even if the Legos weren’t being used to portray The Bloodiest Story Ever Told, how exactly do ‘Cop with a PermaSmirk’ and ‘Psycho with a Rotary Saw’ Legos express the childlike joy and wonder of the Advent?

    You’ve got some mighty pretty country there on your side of the mountains…I waved a “Hello, Dave” at the ‘Cashmere 12 miles’ sign when I was in Leavenworth a few weekends ago. 🙂

  11. Kevin says:

    “‘Bark! Bark!’ offers the dog slyly.”

    I think that’s my favorite line of the whole story so far.

  12. Michelle says:

    Oh we’re having kinda strange weather over here too! Concerning fog and black ice :s

  13. Patrick says:

    Nice blue ambient you’ve got there. I’d give anything to get that here in Stockholm. I believe we’ve had fog, overcast, rain or snow for the last week constantly. The sun is barely noticed, it’s almost as if it’s dusk all day long (the few hours that is defined as day). I can’t even remember the last time I saw the sun.

    I just remembered that Stockholm about shares the same latitude as Anchorage…

    I must say that the advent calendar story is by far the best and most disturbing this year (and probably of all time).

  14. claire says:

    Cool blue mountains. As a kid I saw lots of paintings with skies or terrain that looked unreal to me, but now I think it’s tremendously cool when I actually see those effects in person.

  15. Randy says:

    I sure hope the Lego Corp. doesn’t see your handiwork…you could be slapped with an expensive lawsuit or something…worse yet they might come at YOU with a rotory saw…

    Great surrounding mountains. You gotta live in a wonderful location up thar in Washington.
