Neutral Milk Hotel

There are too many super-specific Tumblrs to keep track off -- many doing clever riffs of other people's art -- but Dangerous Minds tipped up to the LEGO Albums that renders classic LP art in building block form. They aren't done with real LEGOs, it's pixelated art where those pixels are then turned into LEGO pegs, but it's still kinda cool. Especially on a cold and wet Friday like today.

Some of the choices are questionable -- why would you choose to do Best of The Smiths over The Queen is Dead or Meat is Murder -- but I did laugh when I saw they'd done Death Grips' NO LOVE DEEP WEB. Check out a few below and peruse the entire collection at LEGO Albums.

Photoshopped, Lego-ized or what have you, this is the work of people with WAAAAAAAAAY too much time on their hands.

I like the idea but it would be much more impressive if they were actually constructed and not done with the press of a button in a computer program.

Funny, 4:22's comment could also be applied to much of the music promoted around these parts.

Idiots! This is obviously photoshop bs. Legos do not come in those colours. I know I used to work there.

^ The Lego "people" don't look anything like real people either, but some of the still life scenes you can create with them get the point across clearly.

Still life? Lego people? What the heck are you talking about?

I think the people with too much time on their hands are us.
