Initial D - 20th Anniversary Lego Set

Kudos go to LEGO Ideas user and Initial D fan Denil Oh, for creating this splendid Initial D set, complete with Toyota AE86, Tōfu shop and Fujiwara Takumi minifig. What he needs is our help.

LEGO Ideas is an official platform for new ideas by the community to make dreams reality. Everyone can submit a project and collect supporters. The goal is to collect 10.000 supporters within a year to reach the review phase. Once through, the set will then be added to the LEGO catalog.

To make this project happen for the 20th anniversay of Initial D in 2015, we need every support we can get, so please spread the word, reblog, share on other platforms and help.

A moment of silence this week TGS 2014 approaches to remember all of the good graphic design sensibilities that have died to bring about the show’s mascots from the last few years.

Ergh.

(This year’s is actually pretty okay, though.)

And never forget the party van logo that was on the TGS 2012 supporters’ shirts:

I proudly own one of these.

Oh Christ, I had no idea those were things.

Best graphic design to come out of TGS by default.

I’m very jealous.

PROJECTIONIST

When I try to slow time down, escape somewhere peaceful, more often than not, my thoughts turn to railways. I like thinking about them. Navigating through them. Their infrastructure, their purpose—their existence in areas untouched by other means of transportation. They cut across terrain to bring you one place to another as fast and conveniently as possible, bringing you to locations and sights you’d otherwise never see.

I daydream a lot about being lost on them. On an endless series of rails, discovering new and beautiful scenes that I can only see as a passenger. Sitting down, viewing it all from a window, like a never-ending, always-changing framed painting.

The station is Ichihara Station, located in Sakyou-ku, Kyoto, on the Kurama-Demachiyanagi line.

You’ve captured the charm of the old, unmanned train stations I love visiting in that part of Japan so much! Aaaaaah! <3

This killer whale is thinking about some real deep shit here.
"People like to say &#8216;I love you&#8217; to you one another, but that in and of itself doesn&#8217;t mean anything to me."
Damn, Willy. Just work on reacclimating yourself to the wild first before you start learning Plato&#8217;s dialogues or something.
