“And then we have my favorite detail, the grammophone …”
Lego sucks these days. When I was a child, my grandmother had a box with legos and it just had the very basic building blocks in several sizes and colors. The most specific things where windows for houses. Lego is not fun to play with, rather it is fun to build something.
Now watching that video with a “lego designer” explaining how he designed that ugly beast of a house makes me sad. He is taking the creative process away from me, doing it for me. The only thing that I can decide is if a particular window should have a spiderweb or a curtain sticker. Essentially he is living the childhood dream of being a creator and therefore stopping millions of children from doing so. It is sad and pathetic. Lego completely lost focus.
