Shannonia expands: Central District
Ahem, that should read "The AWARD WINNING Shannonia expands..."
About this creation
That's right, boys and girls, it's time for -- my goodness, what's this?



Why, it seems that a giant trophy of some sort has emerged from the ocean! Now ordinarily the Mayor doesn't like to brag about his AWARD WINNING microcity, but that monument is simply too big to move. *sigh*... I guess we'll just have to live with it...

Where were we? Oh yes, it's time for the long-awaited next series of Shannonian expansions! It's almost too good to be true... Our beloved Mayor could have easily let his city's AWARD WINNING status go to his head and utterly dismissed the great unwashed out there in MOCpages land as unworthy of further episodes of their favorite AWARD WINNING microcity, but he knows that they crave more installments of Shannonia -- AWARD WINNING Shannonia -- and our splendiferous Mayor would never dream of thwarting the will of the people.

So, selfless saint that he is, our great and mighty Mayor has for months been slaving day and night over a hot keyboard, wringing every last drop of satire, sarcasm, subversiveness, silliness, and yes, even some sorrow and sadness, out of his endlessly creative brain so that you, poor pathetic saps who probably have never built an AWARD WINNING MOC in your entire lives, will have witty words to console you of this fact while you watch the conglomeration of itty-bitty plasticity that is his AWARD WINNING microcity scroll down your computer screen in triumphant technicolor, while you curse the lack of talent and imagination that prevents you from constructing AWARD WINNING creations, so that you would weep and wail and gnash your teeth in impotent anger if not for the fact that you were laughing so hard at our marvelous Mayor's wonderful way with words -- Hey! What the... Mmph! Get off!

[Editor's note -- at this point the Mayor was restrained and injected with a powerful sedative, and led away to a nice quiet padded room, clutching his BrickCon08 award for "Best in Micro" to his chest. Before he completely lost consciousness, he was heard to mutter, "Comoros, my ass... I should have TWO trophies..." We now return you to the scheduled tour of the city.]




The Central District neighborhood is generally defined as the area immediately around the three blocky buildings seen here. Forever searching for an identity, it suffers from a bit of an inferiority complex, lacking the caché of the neighboring historic Dome Hill District.





Lucky Dragon authentic Chinese restaurant. This isn't that American-style fortune cookie at the end Chinese food. This is the real deal. Consider yourself warned.







Goth Hotel. Free piercings with a two-night stay.









I can't tell you how tired I was of building little skyscrapers at this point. The hills and waterfall were an absolute joy to build. These were tackled with a heavy sigh and slumped shoulders.






Mondo Condos. It doesn't get much better than this for city living if you're a trendy young adult with money, adjacent to both the Dome Hill and North Beach districts. It's like being in an episode of "Friends" all the time when you live here.






There is absolutely nothing remarkable about this apartment building at all. Move along.








Placido Suites. Views of the ocean, the Arc de Hubris, and Dome Hill. With rooms and amenities so nice, and a staff so professional and attentive, you may not want to leave the hotel!
This caption paid for by Placido Suites, Inc.





As always, the helicopter tour remains a popular way to see a lot of the city in a short time.







Sardine Studios, the most affordable housing in Shannonia. Even recent immigrants from Japan, where people live in closets, murmur (ever so politely) that the rooms are a bit "cozy."






Watchdogs, Inc. A citizens group dedicated to keeping an eye on those mad scientists at the Institute. And anybody else who pisses them off. Which is pretty much everybody.







A short little installment, just to ease you in. We've got a lot more to cover...

I don't think any legos can portray a person at this level. But miniland/minifigure style Shannonians would be cool! Good job on the award, I feel inferior already. Finally, some 1 x 2 grill slopes! I was getting tired of all those FLAT ones. And no overall pic?! A lot of us can't make it to crowded conventions to enjoy the entire Shannonia!

You people below SHOULD feel bad about yourselves. The instant I was awarded that trophy, I became better than everyone who has never constructed an award-winning MOC. I am in no way being sarcastic, and the opening tirade was in no way overblown for comedic effect. I am amazingly awesome, and Shannonia will surely be ranked by future generations as one of mankind's greatest achievements ever in the history of the world. I have the trophy to prove it. That "Best Micro" trophy is worth more than an Oscar, a Nobel Prize, and a Lombardi trophy all put together. Winning it is getting me invited to the White House for lunch with the President. He called me up to congratulate me, and agrees with me that anyone taking offense should just CHILL OUT!

This was a laugh out loud model, but that thing about the immigrant didn't really make sense. To me it was a tiny bit racist..... Anyway, you proved a fine metropolis. I would suggest you bring down the selfishness.

Hey Kelso... that's not what you told ME you and Dave were saying. But you should have said those things. I mean, this is an AWARD WINNING MOC! I mean, come on... what have you built. A star wars ship? Two? pfft. Feel free to bask in your own magnificence Shannon. You deserve it... just this once. ~ Chris.

This AWARD WINNING MOC is rather nice to look at, as far as AWARD WINNING MOC's go and all that. I still want to know where the residents keep their mechs stored *hint hint*. I think I shall resume inspecting this AWARD WINNING MOC, to see if I spot it.

Before I accept the fact that this is an AWARD WINNING MOC I have a few questions: first, were you tested for perforance inhancing drugs during the build? Second, have the judges bank accounts been looked over for large sums of money invested recently? Third, was this creation checked over for extra weights that might improve its downhill speed? So untill these questions are answered I'm afraid I cannot accept this as an AWARD WINNING MOC.

I'm wondering when we're gonna see these supposed inhabitants of Shannonia, it looks deserted from the skies and sounds like there's one person running in the streets shouting "EUREKA! AWARD! AWARD!" Great looking additon, great buildings, great landscaping, and as always, funny writting.

Did you win an award? You should tell us about it. Ha. Just kidding. It's a nice lookin' award. You should work those buildings into the city. You can fill up a block without having to think of anything new. Practical. see ya. garth

Ya know, I was just saying to Dave Shaddix the other day what a splediferous, AWARD WINNING indiviual I thought you were. Isn't that right, Dave? (Dave:)"He's a d*ck." That's right, splediferous and AWARD WINNING! That's what we said. And now, here you are saying it yourself. See, I knew we were right about you. Didn't we say it, Dave?

Bah. If I lived in America, I could've gone to BrickCon, then you would tremble beneath the mighty power of Woodville's MONORAIL SYSTEM! I'm sorry, but it's the only decent part of my city. That and the suspension bridge. *Sigh* And now it's dead. I just didn't have the parts to sustain a Mirco City without scrapping every other project. But New Woodville will soon be returning to your screens, because the Giant Castle Chess Set is now mine, and beleive me, there's a LOT of spare parts (And parts descreetly ripped from the board) that can be used to make a Mirco City. Anyways, back to AWARD WINNING Shannonia! I just don't know how you do it. *Double Sigh* - Callum

Congrats for your well deserved Award. As the father of the greatest and coolest Micro-city, you can be proud :-) Oh by the way, I've seen your "Crystal ship" (very good), did you know I've made a ship named like that too, on the same song ?

JD and Caleb - Stop making me feel less special about having an AWARD WINNING MOC! I never win anything, just let me enjoy this, all right? Oh, who am I kidding... you guys were there, you saw how few microscale creations there were. Shannonia pretty much won by default. '07, on the other hand... I was robbed!

Hey, Caleb's right...I got a third place at the county fair with Luseville. But, it was judged by a grandma. Who thought it was a space station. And who knew nothing about Legos whatsoever. That is the reason I'm shootin' for BrickCon '09.

Wait a sec, this is the same AWARD WINNING Shannonia we saw in the post right before BrickCon? No more additions? Just some extra icing on the AWARD WINNING cake in the form of commentary? I just might start another microcity and whip this overrated chunk of bricks into shape! AND beat it at BrickCon '09! ...and while I'm at it, I want a pony.
