LEGO Unveils Stunning Sesame Street Set

LEGO Ideas 21324 Sesame Street N36EW 1

Step Up To The Brand-New LEGO® Ideas 123 Sesame Street – About us – LEGO.com US:

Voted for by LEGO brick lovers all over the world, a wonderfully nostalgic new LEGO Ideas set has been brought to life after being envisioned by an avid builder. The brand-new LEGO® Ideas 123 Sesame Street set is the latest product from the LEGO Ideas collection, which conceptualises and produces the creative wonders imagined and voted for by LEGO brick fans themselves.

Created with all the delightful elements of 123 Sesame Street, the new set is packed with authentic details from the famous New York City neighbourhood. From Bert and Ernie’s apartment, in which Bert famously pleaded with Ernie to remove a banana from his ear so he could hear better, to Big Bird’s nest, where the grown-ups finally met Mr. Snuffleupagus in person – builders will marvel in Sesame Street’s most memorable moments.

At a retail price of $120, this is clearly for the adult fans looking back at their childhood, but I can say for sure, this set would’ve blown my mind as a child.

LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street arrives on November 1, 2020.

View this post on Instagram

It’s nice to meet you, I’m Nate. #uncharted

A post shared by Tom Holland (@tomholland2013) on

I guess this movie is finally, truly getting made.

That said, this doesn’t feel like I’m seeing a still from an Uncharted movie, but instead that Tom Holland is a really really great Nathan Drake cosplayer.

Uncharted is scheduled (in theory) to hit theaters on July 16, 2021.

BBC’s STAGED Gets Season 2, Adds Ben Schwartz to Cast

‘Staged’: BBC Renews David Tennant & Michael Sheen Lockdown Comedy – Deadline:

The BBC has commissioned a second season of Staged, the lockdown comedy starring Good Omens actors David Tennant and Michael Sheen that secured pick-up from Hulu in the U.S.

The first season of the Infinity Hill, GCB Films and No Mystery-produced show featured Tennant and Sheen mounting Zoom rehearsals for their furloughed West End theatre production during the pandemic.

Season 2 sees the pair attempt to navigate the world of “virtual Hollywood” while keeping their increasingly fragile egos intact. Parks and Recreation star Ben Schwartz joins the cast as an assistant to their American agent.

Hey! A new season of a show featuring two of my favorite people, NOW featuring a third of my favorite people!

Awesome!

Now I just need to watch the first dang season on Hulu.

Support the Ottobar, with A Dope Playlist

The Ottobar, storied Baltimore music venue, launching local playlist to raise money during pandemic – Baltimore Sun:

The coronavirus pandemic forced many music and show venues to close or cancel many of their planned activities, losing out on much-needed revenue along the way. The Ottobar in Charles Village, one such venue with a 23-year history in Baltimore, is now trying to support both itself and the music scene it helps sustain with an upcoming fundraiser playlist.

Called “No Stagediving,” the playlist will feature 50 or more artists that are local, have gotten their start at the Ottobar or are otherwise associated with the venue, owner Tecla Tesnau said. The venue announced the fundraiser in a promotional email and on social media Tuesday.

I’ll be sharing a link to the actual playlist once it is up. I’m really looking forward to this project, and not just because I’m a heavily invested member of the Ottobar community, but because I always love seeing my local scene celebrated — regardless of the eventual cause it benefits.
