Future Perfect

Riverside Apartments
Riverside Apartments by Snaillad
Next Sunday A.D. - The future is a hard thing to predict, as anyone who plays the ponies or the stock market can attest to. Ask a person 50 years ago what things would be like today and no doubt they would describe a place with far less wheels on the cars while the phones would still hang on walls rather than sitting in pockets. Those still waiting for the government-issued jumpsuits and monthly ration of food pills to arrive in the mail might need a bit more patience, but for others the future is here now. With walls as sparkling white as the caps of the sea and plenty of balconies from which to enjoy it, this little slice of utopia has everything a weary time traveler could want (jetpack not included).

New Year, New Header

Based on the general consensus when a website decides to freshen up their look and functionality (I still hate the new Flickr), change can be a difficult pill to swallow, at least online. Still, I felt the ol' Brick Town Talk was looking a little tired, so I have slowly been tweaking little things here and there. Wider margins, larger text, different fonts, bigger images, and no more ads have already gone live, but the goal was that these were subliminal enough so as not to offend. I did want to class things up a bit, so please welcome the new masthead. I'm not expecting to win as many Pulitzers as the New York Times, but it doesn't hurt to look the part.

More ideas for minor improvements are in the works, but first and foremost will still be featuring great Lego architecture. I'm not social media savvy in the least, so this site will be your only way to follow us, at least for now. 

Here's to the new year!
