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.
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.
It’s not your typical brick but an actual mp3 player. Now you can listen to your favorite songs playing from a 2X4! The product page is on Homeloo, and you can also check out some other novel LEGO themed MP3 accessories.
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.
Brothers Brick reader Kevin Guoh sent us a link to his Flickr photostream a few weeks ago, and I promptly lost his message in our mountain of reader submission e-mail. :-( Among his creations is this great DJ console (and don’t miss his floor lamp). Sorry, Kevin! Better late than never?
