Look Ma, I’ve Hit The BigtimeJuly 8, 2008 at 10:54 pm | Posted in Lego Love, The Blog And I | 8 Comments
I’ve just found out from my part-time publicist/ full-time brother that an old movie I made over four years ago for a charity quiz event in NUI Galway was featured in the high quality ad-fest that is Galway First (or “Galway Fir” as the image above suggests, thanks to their seemingly blind graphic designer). Available now for the low, low price of “FREE”, you can find the latest issue in Galway newsagents today.
You can view the latest issue online here. Even though it’s free to pick up a copy in brick and mortar establishments, you have to register to view the newest issue. To save you the hassle of confirming passwords, email addresses and whatnot, type in monscooch(at)gmail(dot)com and the password “Zoolander”.
They randomly chose to feature a recreation of Zoolander made entirely of Lego I made four years ago in NUI Galway (the only tenous reason for it’s mention) which I uploaded to YouTube just over a year ago. If you haven’t seen it, here it is. It’s not something I’m proud of now looking back but people still seem to love it. The piece itself is a whole load of waffle (much like the content of this blog, to be fair) and at least I had more column inches than Karl Spain. Yeah, take that Karly-boy. The observations made by the top journalist were pointed out in the comment section by people with idiotic handles such as keydawg13). The one small yet vital mistake I was slightly peeved about was him failing to give the address to the actual video. Travesty.
It seems my fame is moving backwards. I had a movie shown on ABC News, featured on RTE 2 for some reason, mentioned on the radio a couple of times and now, featured in a free local rag. Naturally, the next step would be a monthly newsletter to my family. Their favourite parts are the funnies. This one I wrote: “If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?”. Ah ha ha ha!!! Wait, that’s not funny at all…
Here’s a rather apt music video tribute dedicated to me: “You’re The Best” by Joe Esposito
