Viva Bricklink

From Bricklink,

We regret to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Dan Jezek, owner and founder of Dan will be greatly missed by all of his family and many friends at Bricklink and around the world. A memorial fund is being set up and will be announced at a later date. If you wish to send condolences, you may do so via e-mail to condolences (at) and they will be passed on to his family.

The website will continue under the ownership of the Jezek family. Eric Smith, owner of Northstar Computer Systems, will act as BrickLink Administrator. Northstar has been the host for BrickLink for the past decade. The current BrickLink moderators for the various aspects of the site are all continuing in their roles. Troy Ceferatti is resuming his role as Community Overseer.

The site will continue operating without interruption and all Bricklink users – buyers and sellers – can be reassured that the policies and fee structures will remain as before. Please remember Dan in your thoughts and prayers.

Please visit his memorial page here

By the way should you be asking what is the Bricklink site all about, well all I can say is it is quite possible this blog would have not existed without it. Bricklink has been credited as the main driving force connecting all the crazy fans of LEGO and their beloved bricks and made all the awesome creations you see online possible and feasible, thus resulting the LEGO golden age we are in now.

Defend from Who? At What Cost?

Just recently our dearest PM declared "We must defend Putrajaya at all cost" as a rallying cry for party members at the 61st Umno general assembly in a speech which hinted general election is around the corner.

Frankly, as a citizen of the nation personally I found his statements quite frankly inappropriate in multiple accounts. First, a defend stance would indicate one is under attack, a general election is hardly an "attack" or "war" to begin with. Second, the saying of "at all cost" would have most wondering how far will the current administration go to ensure a victory. What if the cost involves degradation of moral values or breach of conduct?

There is a general sense from the public point of view the current ruling regime has been in power for far too long and it seems half a century of ruling have since rendered a certain group of people to believe the rights in power to govern this country is a kind of "ownership" instead of "stewardship". That itself in my humble oppinion, is the first step towards down fall.

Madness? No Way!

If you happen to listen to the news of Bolehland lately, the latest biggest fuzz is on the government's announced project of a New mega skyscraper and this is because 'We need it because we can do it' despite Service tax upped to 6pc from next January "to generate additional tax revenue for national development".

Let us get this straight, first we need more money because obviously we are running short, then we build another big tower down town because... that will benefit us all? And our dear Prime Minister is confounded by pro-opposition civil servants.

Full steam ahead, dear captain of Titanic.
