Hotel California - Eagles (The Song of Ages: R1)
“Welcome to the Hotel California, Such a lovely place”
About this creation
"This could be Heaven or this could be Hell",
but it’s definitely my entry for The Song of Ages Contest!

The Main Players with The Master

The Players from left to right:
She, Pretty Boy #1, Don Henley, Pretty Boy #2 & The Master


The Bit Players with The Master

The Players from left to right:
The Captain, The Bartender, The Night Man, The Master & The Gold Digger


4th Wall commentary:
This madness started from hearing this song playing in the background while waiting in my pets’ vet office. About 2 days later, ‘The Song of Ages’ Contest was announced and I was hooked. I chose this song because I have always liked its Flamingo quality, especially noticeable in its musical intro and outro. Finally, all sig figs used in this project are fictional. Any Hotel Player’s resemblance to a real-life MOCpages’ sig fig is purely coincidental.

I LOVE THIS SONG! The guitar solos are epic and the lyrics are quite soft yet alarming and filled with vivid pictures! I like your lego version of it! :)

Quoting Caz . Originality: 18. Quality: 15. Creativity: 20. Overall interpretation: 18. The video really helped your score, but like Josh said, you didn't have the strongest build. Total score: 71
Thanks, Caz! :)

Quoting Josh B. Your score is as follows: Originality- 21 Quality- 15 Creativity- 18 Overall Interpretation- 20 Total: 74 First of all, I'd like to say your video was very entertaining. A cool style, which really played to your personal style. Which was what helped your score, as you have a unique style that you used to your advantage. This being said, your builds were not the strongest of the contest, unfortunately. But overall, a great entry. Cool beans.
Thanks Josh. I'm impressed with your well thought out, timely, itemized, honest, and well written comments. A few AFOL judges could take lessons from you! :)

Quoting El Barto ! Great work! Wonderful cast of characters, too. Good luck!
Thanks Doc, I had fun experiementing with everything. But, I did enjoy creating the characters the best. Guess it's similar to creating a Bionicle personality? :)

Quoting Nick Barrett A lovely place, indeed. I'd stay there :-)
Nick, if you like scarry places, perhaps your stay would inspire you to build a haunted house, mansion, hotel, whatever! I love your house builds! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Quoting Parrington Levens These figs are so wicked! Don Henly just cracks me up! The babes are t'rific!
Thanks, 'cuz at first I was afraid Don looked too much like George Harrison! I've seen recent pix of him is a suit tho, so guess it works. So, you like that Flamingo She and that Gold Digger! :)

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Nicely done, I like the colouration of the front path, it suits the build while being unique.
Thanks. That's what happens when one doesn't have enough 1x2 SNOT tiles! Got away with it this time, 'cuz the color of the building is so varied too! :)

Quoting Dave Kaleta Wonderful build, nice to see you tackle some architecture. Can't say I've ever been able to listen to this song, but I'm glad you found it inspiring! ~Dave
Thanks, Dave. Yes, I tackled/experimented with a number of things on this. I've always liked the music of the song... never paid that close of attention to the lyrics. I think I've dissected/analyzed them to the point that they are now detracting from the music for me! :)

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Vivid video $D. Absolutely brilliant! Very entertaining and well made. The dark desert highway bit is hilarious. Love the minifigs. Good luck LaTricia Creatori
Thanks! The highway bit was an experiment. I just strapped the camera in the back on an old Fabuland vehicle base with the fig centered and rolled it along while taking the video. And I finally got to use that spotlight effect! :)

Quoting Michael Kringe Nice video! The build reflects the wonderful athmosphere of the song perfectly. I also like the effects you added, especially on 2:10-13. You should really try some story-MOCs! :)
Glad you liked it! I'll have to check out the effect you referenced. Oh, I'll probably will try my hand at a story one day. Thanks! :)

Quoting David Alexander Smith Is that the Hotel California or a candy rendition of the Shining. Flamingo quality indeed - humming to myself ... 'standing at the door of the Pink Flamingo crying in the rain...'. :) BTW feeling inspired to join this contest.
Hee, hee... a bit of both! As your Mom probably always told you, don't be fooled by a beautiful exterior! Thanks! :)
