First of all, I would like to apologize to everyone that's been waiting for the next installment of MOCtag for my lateness in posting. I got caught up in work outside of Lego and couldn't spare any time (editing the video and audio of eight hours of footage coherently with color corrections and custom titles is not an easy task, neither is making the DVDs for them). But it is finally here. I've broken a few rules, even though I've condensed the story a lot. The non-condensed Director's Cut is a lot funnier, but since I'm posting late as it is, I'll post that tomorrow.
General consensus says that I've babbled enough! It's time for the show!
Blue Star Lego Presents:
MOCtag Episode 11: The question isn't why the chicken crossed the road, it's "Is the roadkill tasty?"
1: “The Man,” also known as “El Hombre” by the… Um… Asian community, hurtled through space and time, passing through many destinations.
2: He eventually took the crown off of his head and, as it flew away it was lost to the whole of the universe. He finally began to culminate within a universal singularity. By some bizarre stroke of luck, by some miracle...
3: ...His final destination was a meter above Rory’s face, and dropping fast. As he landed on Rory, both their heads were crushed on the pavement. The Chickenator, Goldman the Thug, and Shia Labeouf were subtly startled.
The Chickenator: “Holy crap, that guy just appeared Me-style and terminated my target!”
Goldman: “Holy crap, he’s more dangerous than you!”
Shia Labeouf: Good grief, I’m Shia Labeouf with a knife! Run for your lives, you mechanical piece of poultry!
4: As the Chickenator fled, he looked back and screamed “I’ll be bawk…!”
The thugs were gone, Shia hadn’t thrown his knife… Rory was saved.
5: The Man’s headfirst landing caused irreparable internal bleeding within his skull, and with his last dying breaths, he told the paramedics to save Rory instead.
6: After being transported to the hospital, Rory was examined by the best doctors a human hospital could offer a giant chicken. His loving wife, Kassandra Book, left the set of Bonktron Invasion 2: Lock Up Your Moms to visit him in the “Intensive Care Ward for Industry Stars.” Rory, bleeding from his head and smashed beak, was barely conscious, unaware of his grim condition.
7: After examining him, the head doctor and nurse tending to him walked out of earshot, speaking in low, terse tones in the waiting room.
Nurse Avi: Oh, doctor! It’s worse than we thought!
Doctor Sparkle: I know, I know… This is not good. Not good at all. This will affect him the rest of his life… Not to mention he bled all over one of my new gloves…
Nurse Avi: Doctor! We need to act soon! What are we going to do?!
Doctor Sparkle: There’s only one thing we can do in a situation like this… The damage to his head is too extensive… I’m afraid that Rory will die unless… He gets a nosejob. ...Beakjob. Whatever you call it.
8: As Avi and Sparkle conversed outside the door, Rory, with much effort, requested that Kassandra take his phone and call an ex-military friend of his, named Black C. Only he would have a chance of stopping the Chickenator…
Oh the suspense! Oh, the terror! The one question on the mind of every reader must be “What will Carlos do to fair Kassandra in Bonktron Invasion 2?!” One can imagine the use of yet another red and tan monstrosity!
Oh, yeah, there are other questions to be asked as well! Will Rory finally die?! …Again?! Will Black C. catch up to the Chickenator before he comes bawk to take Rory out?! Will Rory die before then, making said subplot totally irrelevant?! And what about Dr. Who?! All (or nothing) will be explained by our beloved samus in MOCtag: Episode 12! And don't forget to look later on for MOCtag #11: Director's Cut!
Nice collection of time pieces and spacey tiles for temporal anomaly effect. Would somebody just please choke this chicken once and for all so we can see more of his starlet bride. I'd like to see some, ahem, character development on her side.
A nice build, but late? I am finding the breaking the rule on the lines a bit tiresome. Mark's was funny because it was a cleaver loophole - this is just plain ignoring the rules. In addition, can't we just let the dang rooster go to KFC and be done with him - sigh. Lee.
Man, I hang out with Kelso while he's in town and you go and sneak a moctag in on me... is there a parrot in here? Anyway nice way to bring "it" back from the brink! I was gonna go into all the rules you broke but Young already gave you a good talking to so I'll leave it be. I know it's symantics at this point but the line is "I'll beak back." (I know "Whatever Chris..."). This is some really great work all round! Color me impressed my friend. Story, build, new characters, new questions. You've got it all in a nice little package. Now go sit in the corner with Kelso. ~ Chris.
Man, I go out of town and ya sneak a MOCtag in on me...Oh well, that's what I get! So, I see another has joined the ranks of the rule-breakers. Welcome to detention...have a seat next to me, we're gonna be here a while! Meanwhile, some nice building and story-telling! I do have to say that I'm a little disappointed, though in so many people's apparent need to associate Rory with MOCtag. I could be wrong, but I don't think Mr. Young had such limitations in mind, and there's a world of possibilities out there without Rory, just waiting to be explored!
Minus one smiley for each day past the deadline -- unfortunately I can't give you a zero. We don't care if you have a life, we don't care if your grandma's in the hospital or your dog got hit by a car. When you're It in MOCtag, nothing else matters. You get it out in 14 days, no excuses. I won't even get into the number of lines you used here. I'm tired of yelling at all you scofflaws. I'm going to bed.
Again, this is a perfect addition to the story. That guy didn't last very long though, I would have rather he got sent to the wrong place. Would've been more interesting. Rory must have some sort of secret that makes him not die. I guess we'll see. I just wish I'd get tagged already, I have so many good ideas whirring around in my head. But it seems like this whole "4 line" thing is being completely ignored. I mean, I understand why it's there, but still.
Well, I think the other Shannon will be out for your blood about the 4 line thing, so I'll be 'nice Shannon': great builds and lighting with your photos man. BTW be careful if you're going to Brickcon-Shano will be waiting for you with a 2x4 with a nail in it...;D
"Oh doctor, we'll have to give him a nose job!" Very good job! I only wish I knew why the time-traveling man wanted to save Rory...The scenes are excellent! By the way, was that Joe Vig who was run over by a motorcycle? C ya~ElNickre
