The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

An insane number of bricks

As a kid, I had little say in the attendance of church—I had to go. I never did like attending it—it was too long, and the sermons I found boring (or scary if the Baptist minister did a sermon from the Revelation of St. John the Divine); the only things I enjoyed about church was the architecture and the music (I love church music—but it has to be sans vocals, or the vocals in a language other than English).

Overall, I would have rather stayed home and played with my Lego bricks.

But this Lego-built church (link from Spring) is just … just … words aren't enough to describe it. A 7′ by 5½′ by 30″ church, minifig scale, is incredible.

Architecturally, the design is wonderful and I would love to see a church in real life based on this design, although it would be a bitch to heat and cool, given the volume of the main room and the large amount of glass used.

And the acoustics, and the organ that takes up the entire back wall …

Whoah!

Incredible!

Obligatory Links

Obligatory Miscellaneous

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

http://boston.conman.org/2000/08/01

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
