    I made this last night using the Little Blocks mod for Minecraft. It allows you to build in-game on a micro-scale. This is the first of several “big” projects I want to do.

    Check out my comedy podcast: Nobody’s Listening, now in it’s 6th year!

    Back in November I posted some photos of a custom check-in kiosk I was building for my children’s ministry. I’ve had quite a few requests for the plans. Unfortunately all I can find 6 months later are the print outs of the measured drawings I used for reference while building in the garage. I’ve photographed them and converted them into a PDF file you can easily download and print yourself. Keep in mind that these measurements may not be 100% accurate. They do not take into account the width 3/4″ MDF I used for instance. That being said, if you hand this to any sort of woodworker or handy man, he’ll be able to make sense of it.

    If you end up using these all I ask in return is a photo of your finished product.

    Kiosk Measured Drawings

     

    I’m still doing this thing… but my spare time is even less plentiful than I expected. I watch what I can when I can. Here’s where we stand as of 5/2/2012.

    • Being John Malkovich – I was so intrigued by the premise of this movie. I’m a John Malkovich fan… but I turned it off less than halfway through. Once the cute/zany stuff was over and the weird “I only like you through him” stuff started… I had to go watch High School Musical to undo the mental damage. That being said… the puppeteering segments, though really strange, were amazing. I thought at times that they were using people in costume and filming it to make them look miniature. Then I found this old webpage of an interview with the puppeteer.
    • Reservoir Dogs – Didn’t watch this. I saw it long ago and don’t need to see it again. Replaced with The Gumby Movie which I watched with the kids. Surprisingly no one cut off any claymation ears.
    • Swingers – Delete the first hour of this movie and it would be great!
    • Trainspotting – Didn’t watch. Again, saw it a long time ago and just too dark for my taste. Replaced with Girl, Interrupted… which I didn’t notice was already on the list, just further down.
    • Clerks – Again. Didn’t watch again. Replaced with The Muppet Movie on DVD with the kids. It’s awesome.
    • Girl, Interrupted – I don’t remember enough about this movie to do a decent review. Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder were in it. Strange because I think of one as an 80’s icon and the other as a late 90’s icon. In 1999 two world collided.
    When Mark finished Girl, Interrupted he was only three more movies away from finishing his 2nd day. I’m creeping up on day 13 here.
