Just like many other artists, LEGO builders find inspiration in the music they listen to as they create the wonderful models you see here on The Brothers Brick. It’s no surprise, then, that music inspires many LEGO models more directly, from minifig musicians to album art recreated with bricks.

Radiohead’s House of Cards video in LEGO by Ian Mackinnon

The music video for Radiohead’s “House of Cards” from In Rainbows (naturally available from Radiohead - In Rainbows) just seemed to be begging for the LEGO treatment.

Ian Mackinnon obliges with this strange and gorgeous rendition (with a hat-tip to reader wb):

Ian used the 3D plotting data from the original video to do his time-lapse LEGO interpretation of “House of Cards”. The result is sheer brilliance.

And here’s the original video for “House of Cards”, for comparison:

Arnold Skolnick’s Woodstock poster in LEGO by Noddy

Artist Arnold Skolnick’s famous poster for a certain “Aquarian Exposition,” billed as “3 Days of Peace & Music,” came to be so closely identified with Woodstock that many people can’t think of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin, or The Grateful Dead up on that stage without thinking about Skolnick’s dove perched on a guitar.

Noddy/V1 recreates this iconic poster in LEGO:

It’s a brand new day for Dr. Horrible

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity, Firefly, and now Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog — everything that Joss Whedon touches turns to gold.

Go watch all three episodes for yourself on DrHorrible.com (before the end of the day today, though — they’ll be gone after midnight, July 20).

UPDATE: For those of you who missed the free viewing, you can download all three episodes of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog from the Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog - Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Acts 1, 2 & 3 Music Store:

Rock on, dbol! Rock on.

I’ve always felt that LEGO vignettes are like haiku (though maybe Bruce might have made that comparison first). Dbol actually combines the two with this great vignette of a gamer playing Guitar Hero with an unimpressed female onlooker:

Rock stars preen and strut
While they shout at the devil
But he’s just a geek.

This isn’t just an amusing vig — it’s got some interesting techniques, like the curtains and the wonderful large-screen TV.
