After hearing drilling and hammering sounds all through the night, Zack 'NewRight' awakes on his birthday to find John has built a pool in his house - and, as a result, has collapsed onto a sofa in fatigue.
At some point, the message of this birthday MOC got a bit muddled so what started out as "Happy birthday, I built you a pool 'cos you like swimming" became "Happy birthday, I got drunk and collapsed on your sofa. Plus, there's now a pool in your house".
Anyways, since it's NewRight's birthday I thought I ought to say thank you for all his help with Brickspace, and his readership of my blog. Since I (rightly) don't know where he lives, I couldn't spend the usually minimal effort involved in writing a card.
Hence, I thought I should try harder and make something big. There's a fish net on the ceiling, with fish and skeletons to symbolise the Pirate MOCs Zack always builds. Plus, I tried to design the house like a classic Brickfilm set, reminiscent of Nathan Wells, and Zack's Brickfilms.
Though the message may have got a bit lost, happy birthday anyway Zack!
I think that should explain it. Strangely, Zack hasn't commented on it yet - though I don't blame him, I try to stay off the computer on my birthday too (dang, don't remind me about my last birthday when everyone wrote "happy birthday!" on my Facebook wall and I never knew). So there we go, my attempt at saying thank you to Zack for all his help, and also wishing him a happy birthday too. Oh yeah, you may notice the sides of the pool are quite blurry - it's because I 'shopped two photos together; one of me (on sofa) in focus and one of Zack (at door) in focus. I wouldn't usually do this, but my camera's Macro function has a really short depth-of-field, and it worked well on the Neo-Futuron scene.
I'm off to catch some Zs!
