Woooo, it thrills me when two of my favorite hobbies come together. Pop culture has always been highly regarded as an ideal platform for brands to leverage on. Especially when two brands collaborate, the intrinsic value it brings across to its followers must allow them to remain emotionally attached. Now, we create more through cultures. When two cultures combine, the result can be extremely staggering. My perpetual love for street fashion brands and LEGO toys grew even more intense through Adly Syairi Ramly’s latest works. Love how he merge popular toy, LEGO, together with amazing brands through the clever use of their iconic minifigures. Check them out! Dope!
Irrevocably, collaborative work between brands with famous cultural icons generates huge waves of success. As we see now, the aggressive strategy adopted by LEGO over the last couple of years, transformed the toy giant into a global phenomenon. Kids and adults go crazy shopping for these bricks and as the wave of popularity rises once again, LEGO began targeting other channels of marketing, including the upcoming LEGO Movie. Today, we have the Simpsons theme on LEGO. Personally, I am a huge fan of Homer Simpson. This combination is almost irrevocable in the context of brand collaboration. The video above showcases the details of the box set where we see in depth visuals and great explanation of the minifigures as well as bricks for the home of the Simpsons. Impeccable details resembling the cartoon, interesting yet compelling marketing efforts by LEGO is pushing the boundaries of these toy bricks into a new global sensation. Respectable.

I refer to a post from theguardian uk today which features 10 best photographs of the day, which in my opinion was really good. Photography can be an addictive hobby and in return it favors those who puts in their hard work to achieve amazing results. A great photographer not only chooses the best time of the day for his shots, he could work his way along so many other minute details that he wishes to include in his work. Every piece of photograph could encompass a story, an emotion or even a message behind it. Check these 10 photographs from theguardian.

As mentioned before, I am a LEGO fan. It certainly is big news for me when I learn that LEGO is actually going to release an official ‘The Simpsons’ brick set next year 2014. There are currently no news or any coverage as to which characters will be included. However, EGO spokesman Roar Rude Trangbaek said that the company hopes the series will “appeal to fans of ‘The Simpsons’ family”. Will it be a hit upon it
