The Scene Part 5
PG21 The end of my S.A.C. Darwin Awards Contest 2009 entry.
About this creation
The fifth and final installment of this build. At Corona number 7, I am starting to feel a bit tired. It is no 0500 Mountain Time. Three more hours until the deadline. With a combination of the beer and sleep deprivation, I have to admit that I am starting to feel a bit tired. However, a second wind just hit, and I wonder if I should finish this bottle of water I have before me and grab number 8 � hmmm. But I opted to stick with water.

Because I was under the gun, this isn't the perfect planned for ending, but here we go anyways.



The Professor, who was so distraught by the problems that his science experiment had caused runs off to be by himself. Unfortunately, his short legs don't allow him to clear this barbed bush. And although he lives through this run in, his family jewels are left behind, and he no longer has the option of procreation.


Here we find the characters consoling each other. Despite the disaster the evening has been, they realize that at least they are together, and can celebrate the passing of the others.



Ahhhh


?!?! get a room guys.




After the body of Gio has been added to the fire. They offer a 21-gun salute to honour his passing. Any guesses where this is going.





This mushroom cloud was designed by my daughter. The sheer brilliant simplicity of it floored me. Especially as she was just going to bed, when she rattle off the parts to use.


This is what has been holding me up. This was supposed to be the finale, but I only just figured out how to make a Lego mushroom cloud, and haven't been able to make the time to execute it.


The remaining 1x2 trans red bricks 2,800 total. Plus yellow and black, which are stored elsewhere at the moment. I will post it some time in the future.

As for who survives to tell the story? I was going to leave this up to the good folks of MOCpages, but due to time constraints, this didn't happen. Again, dang that real life thing.

As this didn't happen, then I will have to choose. Therefore, I will pick the best story teller among us. The man whose writing skills are at such a level, that we should all strive to reach at least half his level - Shannon Young.


Thanks for following along, if you haven't already fallen asleep.

Dang, got censored on my own damn page - my reply to Mr. Young:

SY="This "I like it" smiley is mostly for your daughter's micro mushroom cloud, that design is awesome."

LJ=I have to admit it was so damn clever, that I actually stopped in my tracks and stared at her for a bit; never even crossed my mind.

SY="I have to be honest, sometime around part 3 or 4 I did think to myself, "Where is this going? I don't think Lee even knows himself. He needs to get some sleep, he's loopy."

LJ=I am no writer; essentially it was a bunch of one liners strung together in an alcohol induced haze. I had thought of all the scenes before hand, then tried to make it into a story. The whole build was built for the final scene, which ironically didn't get completed the way I wanted.

SY="This thought was confirmed by your shameless pandering to me at the end -- obviously under the delusion that I am one of the judges for this contest!"

LJ=just giving credit where credit was due. Cheers man, too bad you can't make it to Chicago - now that would have been the icing. Lee

H-I-Friggin-Larious! As usual. I love that mushroom cloud design! And I could only DREAM of having that many trans red bricks. Currently I have 0!

Alright Jones, let's cut right to it...YOU WIN!!!! While I felt the build had a few weak spots (some of which Dylan pointed out), it was still a solid build. But as Chris and I discussed your entire series, through guffaws and tear-ridden laughter, it was obvious that this was the winner. Several builders gave you a real run for your money, but the Coronas must have paid off! So congratulations, Mr. Jones. You are officially the king of the SigFiggy Abusers Club 2009 Darwin Awards competition. I'll be in touch shortly to discuss the ever-important issue of claiming your well earned swag!

About 3,000km North of San Diego in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Northern Alberta.

Well played, I guess not everyone has California weather :), but now I'm scared to ask, where exactly do you live?

Quoting Dylan B <<<<Quoting Lee Jones "I had to minimize the shadows, therefore minimal featured landscape in the important areas."
Agreed, thanks for explaining. Might I suggest taking your pictures with the flash off, in the day time. This eliminates shadows all together so you could add that extra "detail," without the "mess." -Dylan
You could suggest, and there are so many reasons I could answer this a smart alack response. But may I suggest that not everybody lives in the same geographical region as you do, and that this may not be possible for all people at all times. If this were the case, then I would have not had to spend a grand in equipment to obtain proper lighting. Lets see - blowing snow, winds at 30-50km/h, the sun so far down on the horizon that it would throw shadows that I would have to use a flash to compensate for. Lee.

I seem to be receiving a proper "consoling" there. I laughed so hard when I read this one. You have definitely outdone everyone here!

And Karta got to watch it all in the comfort of his bunker. Great Scott, good man! I'll protest if it DOESN'T win! You've got true detail showing here. And that mushroom cloud is brilliant. Good luck in the contest!

Great mushroom cloud. Now, is that supposed ti be a mushroom cloud or just a type of detonator for the Professor's brain? Good day

Quoting Dylan B As a sole comment for all your scenes you have done great, I speak for everyone when say that they all were HILARIOUS. I'll add something about the quality of the build though. The walls and river are excellent, but the "ground" seems somewhat plain, as if it lacks some detail. Well when you put the detailed walls and river next to the plain ground it is kind of confusing to the eye due to the fact that the walls and such are so detailed while the ground really isn't, so it looks like a big contrast, if you get where I'm going with this. But adding on to everyone else's comments, it's brilliant. Oh and I wished that you had that explosion mushroom ready in time, oh well deadlines are deadlines. Good luck! -Dylan
Noted, and you are right. However, this was intentional. As I was going to be taking the vast majority of pics with the flash on, then I had to minimize the shadows - therefore, minimal featured landscape in the important areas. When I post some pics of the elements and the whole scene, then you will see that the outer edge is highly textured. This is because I was not going to be taking any pics of activities in those areas. Sometimes, form has to follow function - this was one of those cases. Good observation though. Lee.

While the Professor survives, he doesn't get to keep his cherry balls? what kind of sick irony is that! Nevertheless, this series was truly brilliant. Probably the most enjoyable MOC i've come across in terms of story. You dererve a Mocie in multiple categories: Chris Take Note.

"Brilliance" is not a large enough word to describe this series. I laughed, I cried (from laughing) and I even threw up in my mouth a little bit (also from laughing)! Congratulations sir. Congratulations. ~ Chris.
