|April Moon over Flensborg Fjord|
It is passed midnight and I’m sitting looking at the full april moon rising above the water. Actually the exact same place where I wrote the first blog entry.
Wow! today the 5/6/15 it is 3 years ago I made my first post on this blog and now 3 years later and 186 posts older and getting close to 500.000 blog views!!! I have to say the biggest THANK YOU to all who have looked, read, liked and commented. It is just the best when there is somebody out there who appreciates what you do. Putting things on this blog has almost become a regular part of my life.
However I only have 21 regular blog readers and since they are the only ones I can contact I will have to ask everyone who wants to be part of the coming Turaga giveaway to join as regular members of Faber Files. This is the only way I can controle the giveaway. Hope it is not too much pressure but please join! (more about this later)
Through the last 3 years Bionicle have been the major subject on this blog and I feel that I have told my side of how Bionicle came to be and at the same time I have given you a look into what creativity means to me.
The Turaga files giveaway that I’m planning is my way to say thank you to the community.
I hope that I can recreate some of the magic and mystery that I felt was in the launch of Bionicle back in 2001 and fuel it into my new project “Rebel Nature”. As you may know I am currently working on bringing the universe to life together with Ghost and Cryoshell and the first output will be the app “Escape RIG21” coming out hopefully before summer (fingers crossed!!!).
It has been 3 very exciting years with one big headline CHANGE. Both on a private scale, when it comes to LEGO and looking at the world.
In the last 3 years looking at the world:
•Global warming has become a reality. The highest temperature ever has ben measured in Antarctic.
•Plastic is filling the oceans and making its way into the foodchain.
•Religion is creating conflict all over the globe
•China is becoming the biggest economy in the world. and the most polluting one.
•Apple has become the most valuable company in the world
•It has become deadly dangerous to draw your opinion in cartoon drawings.
When it comes to toys:
•LEGO has become the biggest toy company in the world.
•LEGO has launched a blockbuster Hollywood Movie and done product sampling at the Oscars in front of live camera (who would have dared to dream that!!!)
•LEGO’s first successful line to girls “Friends” has been launched.
•LEGO and Minecraft have joined forces!!!
•Bionicle has been relaunched!!! (without a movie??? who would have thought that)
On a personal level:
•I lost my father last year which made me realise one important fact: LIFE IS SHORT, SO DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, NOW! Don’t but it of till tomorrow.
•I have left my dreamjob at Advance after 28 years (Even dreams have to end for reality to begin).
•I have started to create a universe that will hopefully become a game/movie/IP telling a different story, together with some of the coolest people I know. It feels great even though it is so much more economical unsafe.
I would love your support in my future adventures and the best way you can support is by subscribing to this blog, Faber Files. There are only 21 now so there is plenty of room.
The Turaga files unboxing of Bionicle concept art is just around the corner and right after that I will start up the “Turaga giveaway” so join Faber Files asap and get a chance of being part of that and help support my future projects. Thank you so much and hope you stay tuned to this channel.
