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.

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.

Here’s my take on a scene from Act II of Dr. Horrible:

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:

LEGO creations inspired by Joss Whedon previously featured on The Brothers Brick:

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:

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.

Historical Personages by Morgan19

I’ve admired Morgan19‘s minifigs ever since I noticed his great Firefly minifigs. The latest batch is a group of historical minifigs, entries for the Fine Clonier Historical Minifig Contest.

I might quibble with the “historical” nature of some of these, but it’s a great collection of minifigs, presented beautifully.
