Shannonia continued again
Just when I thought that I was out, they pull me back in!
About this creation
Now I know I said that the last installment of Shannonia would really be the last, but never trust a Lego addict when he says he's out of pieces -- his fix is always the nearest toy store away. What AFOL can resist the siren song of a buy two get one free sale? My god, I'm only human. So much for cutting back on my Lego spending... hey, I didn't really need to pay the electric bill this month, right?

   The new stuff. Let's see, we left off last time with the restaurant block, so...



Enlarge image
   Captain Jack's Crabshack. Now a seafood restaurant, in the Captain's day it was the sleaziest rum hall west of the Caribbean. In the upstairs garret, the Captain's wife would "entertain" sailors in port. Interestingly enough, it was called Captain Jack's Crabshack back then, too.

   Pearl Pagoda Chinese takeout, home of the Outrageous Fortune Cookies: "You have less than six months to live," "Your significant other is cheating on you," "You just ate dog meat," etc.



Enlarge image
   Everything is now on nice new 16 x 16 clear baseplates that come in the mosaic sets. Unfortunately, one has a slight upward bend, so I guess what we have here is the Shan Andreas fault. And if you laughed at that, I'm deeply, deeply disappointed in you. I'm ashamed just to have written it.

   People will tell you the helicopter tour is the way to go, but you can get pretty much the same effect with a lawn chair and enough helium balloons.



Enlarge image
   "Them belly full, but we hungry... a hungry mind is an angry mind..." If you hear Bob Marley played at full blast, you're near Baby Lon's Jamaican drive-thru. The police suspect Baby Lon of selling more than jerk pork, but have so far been unable to prove anything.



Enlarge image
   The Lemuria hotel, featuring four indoor water slides and a free pass to the aquarium for every guest. Contrary to popular belief, the name has nothing to do with lemurs.



Enlarge image
   The Lucky Lotus casino. Three deck blackjack, with three dollar minimum hands. Can you beat it?



Enlarge image
   Heading north on Ocean Avenue. Not named after that "other" Shannon, though he likes to impress people at parties by saying it is.
I know that gag's getting old, but you try coming up with a new and different amusing caption for each and every picture without lapsing into self-plagiarization.



Enlarge image
   Even the lowliest prole is treated like a member of the politburo at the Odessa Novo. This week: world championship ladies' hot oil wrestling. Next week: The Hacks, the tribute band tribute band. Every week: 268 different kinds of vodka in Raskolnikov's, the hotel bar.

   If this urban sprawl continues much further, I'm going to need a wide angle lens.



Enlarge image
   The white building is Xanadu Pleasure Dome Total Immersion Video Games. Don't just play the game, live it! (Slight risk of epileptic seizure -- read the waiver carefully before signing.)



Enlarge image
   The little red one is Jen and Barry's Laserama, catering to the same demographic as Baby Lon's, oddly enough. Current schedule: Mon-Wed, Laser Zeppelin; Thur-Sat, Laser Floyd; Sun, laser Beethoven. You laugh, but it really rocks.



Enlarge image
   Guano Rock, site of a bizarre Shannonian tradition that dates back hours. Each year during the annual albatross migration, hundreds of John Cleese impersonators swim through salt-infested waters to the rock. The last one to arrive has a dead albatross tied around his neck and is forced to swim back, while the others ride back on a ferry and throw rocks at him from the deck.



Enlarge image
   The Sheepshead Club. Live music, dancing, and the best eel pie and blood pudding west of Devon and Cornwall.



Enlarge image
   Space for lease, zoned commercial.



Enlarge image
   The yellow and blue building is the old fisherman's market, now a hive of tourist traps you have to negotiate your way through to get onto the pier.



Enlarge image
   This famous photograph, taken by an unwitting tourist, was intended only to capture the unique architecture of the McClure aquarium. Instead it captured startling images of the Great Quake of '07 along the aforementioned Shan Andreas fault. No tsunami, but Godzilla was awoken from the deep.



Enlarge image
   The aquarium was designed to mimic the lines of the Lucky Lotus, but also to be reminiscent of a coral reef, and the spout from a whale's blowhole. Or so says the architect who designed it. Artists say a lot of things.



Enlarge image
   Shannonia, now holding a contest to replace its ill-conceived "What happens in Shannonia gets splashed all over the internet" ad campaign. Winner to receive a free trip to the next Shannonia module. Yes, there will most likely be a fourth...

Wow, this looks like a ton of fun to build and as usual the commentary makes it great. My favorite is the Pearl Pagoda...one red piece, one white piece, and it really has the feel of a pagoda. Nice one Shannon...keep expanding!

This is some outstanding microscale you've got here, Shannon! It's nice how you've come up with hilarious backstories for all these buildings.
