Episode I: Attack of the Plagues

This stop-motion animation film humorously portrays the action, fun, and drama of the 10 plagues that overcame Egypt and set Israel free.

Yes. Fun is the first adjective that comes to mind when thinking about the 10 plagues.

Also, is that legal? To use LEGOs like that, and profit?

Because I'm a bitch, I will forward this to a friend and ask who I contact to get this shit taken down. Anything that can take VF down a notch or two is a great thing in my book.

Note: You can use Lego to make stop motion animation for fun, sort of how it's legal to make a mixed tape or a playlist for your MP3 player. That's fair use. Also fair use is for educational purposes. VF is doing this shit for profit, though, which if they don't have a license- they can't afford it, I'm sure- they can get in a lot of trouble.

Unfortunately, noone who would buy this would post it online, so I can't see how awesome it is. And by awesome I mean horrible.

There is another lego bible movie about Jericho. My kids were enthralled by it at a homeschool conference this summer. It was being sold--and I believe you can find it on amazon--and I was wondering about the legalities of selling it.

If they have a license to use the Lego in their stop action films, they can use it. But I don't know how they could afford it. Lego is hot right now, so their license for product placement is probably very expensive.

The FUN? Boils all over was FUN? Having all your crops fail and livestock wither was FUN?

That is so fucked up.

Haha! First born sons are all dead! Hilarious hijinks will ensue.

Sounds like a winner.

people suffering and dying is HUMOROUS?

Of course! Only the dirty heathens died! It's kind of like how some Christians believe that when they get to heaven they can peek over a cloud and watch sinners burn in hell. It's righteous entertainment.

There was a lawsuit a decade ago (I think it was resolved only recently b/c I recall hearing about it on NPR) where an artist used Barbies which he photographed in various ways. Mattel tried to stop his use but the artist won on the basis of the Barbies being used in a new and novel way to express an artistic viewpoint. So, you can use branded toys in a novel way (stop motion animation) and produce a work of art (crappy biblical movie) and its protected by law.

Plus, I doubt that the Lego folks would want to mess with the crazy fundies. Unfortunately, they probably want to protect their ability to sell to the right wing Christians.

I think it's sufficiently different than the barbie case mentioned up thread, in that the Barbies being used were used in works of art that fell under social commentary or parody. Furthermore, Lego already has videos out. Judging from the comments on the VF page, these videos were made by homeschool students. Even if it's not a violation of copywrite to make and sell videos using the toys, it's still really sleezy to have ads (see below) on your site that make it appear as though the video is licensed by the Lego group.

I put the ad behind a spoiler because of sizing.

Not to mention all the food crops being eaten by locusts, and the water made undrinkable with blood.

Yeah, good times all right.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
