I have a confession, I haven't played Portal. It's not that I have anything against it, I just don't have an X-Box that's not buried in Flaming Hot Cheetos wrappers in one of my boys' rooms. I watched my son play a bit though, and I have the soundtrack, does that count? (nerd cred -2, damn). Lego Junkie drops the mic with this, his 14th and final MOC for Iron Builder, and it's awesome.
Twitch Plays Pokemon is one of those social experiments that seems to bring a great many people pleasure, with seemingly next to no benefits to society.

Mark of Falworth and his real-life brother, "Brother" Steven dropped an excellent medieval joust creation on us late last night. The Grand Joust is taken from the last part of their first book in their new series, The Anselm Saga.

I expect we will see many more MOCs from their book series in the coming months so stay tuned and check back often.

Thanks for the nudge John S.
