So, recently I realized that when I originally joined I didn't actually introduce myself at all in the New Members subforum (actually, I think I just joined and then forgot about RRU for a while, and then I rediscovered it several months later), and because I now have this shiny new Blog, I thought I'd actually write a bit about myself even though you all know who I am. Anyway, enjoy! Or try to at least...
So, hello there, My name is Ayliffe! If you're wondering how to pronounce that, it's
So, if you've been on the shoutbox recently or seen me on twitter you may have noticed me shouting quite a lot about someone called 'Homepride Fred' and his increasing creepiness, but I've never really explained anything about him. Hopefully this blog post should show you what all the fuss is about.
50 years ago, Homepride started using 'Homepride Fred', a small animated character in a suit who starred in all of their ads, and was unbelievably successful (Seriously, the amount of merchandis
So, if you didn't know I went to Legoland Windsor on tuesday, and I generally had a good time, but when we tried to order some ordinary chippy chips from a small cafe, this is what we recieved:
Yeah, we got a thing called "Lego fries". I was not expecting this at all. Really, I was expecting some nice, ordinary chippy chips to arrive on my table for me to devour/eat. But no, we got these things. They were so hillariously stupid that I had to create a comic about them, and thats what I did
"Jeep announces official partnership with forum member Ayliffe"
Partnership will be first of it's kind according to Jeep CEO
London, UK (March 31, 2015): Jeep today announced it has entered into a first of it's kind partnership with 'Ayliffe', a member of internet forum Rock Raiders United, in a bid to appeal to a more modern audience and keep up with modern habits. This will help bring Jeep into a position to attract more customers from what has been dubbed 'the forum generation', a mark
So, this afternoon on the Skype group I mentioned an idea for a 2D sidescrolling lego fangame that's been in my head for a while, and then I proceeded to literally just blurt out all the ideas and such I had for it for no real reason other than the fact I found it quite interesting. I can't really be bothered to reword all of my abstract thoughts into something more sensible, so here's the chat log for your enjoyment:
So, any thoughts about these ideas wot I had?
I've just received an email from Jeep regarding my previously mentioned partnership with them, and seeing how important it is I thought I'd post it here for all of you guys to see:
So there you go, my partnership with Jeep is officially over.
Nobody is perfect.
Everyone is unique.
You only have one shot at making an impact on the world, don't waste that chance.
Do things you want to do, follow your dreams like a bloodhound glued to a GPS...
And most importantly, don't stop believin' in yourself.
That is all.
I was initially gonna hold off on posting this trailer for a couple of days, but it's such an exciting event for me that I'm posting it today. Wondering what I could be possibly talking about? Well, it's this: the brand spanking new channel trailer for my rebooted channel, Ayliffe Makit Productions! I've been working on this for a while, so it'll be great to get some feedback on the future direction of my channel. Anyways, without further ado, here's the first channel trailer:
I've been here three years huh
Exactly one year ago I told you all how I ended up here in the first place, but this year... I haven't really got much to say actually. We've had some good times and some bad times in the last year, but the one thing that definitely hasn't changed is my relationship with this forum and how much I love it so. Everyone here is nice and for once on the internet it feels like I belong somewhere, and that sense of belonging is
Two years ago, a day after RRU's 6th anniversary and 9 days before my birthday, I first shoved my ugly mug 'ole in the general direction of this site, and joined because -
Well, actually I've never said on here the real reason why I joined in the first place. Mainly because it was so downright silly.
I joined to look at... a topic with a nyan cat mod for racers. Really. When I first navigated my way here as a member of the LMBs (that stopped very soon after), I was a bit of a n00b to be hones
I'm happy to announce that through MOCWorld I've copyrighted the words "MOC" and "AFOL", so if you ever make a MOC or anything out of lego again we'll sue the living daylights outta you. Of course, this is all for your own good.
Have a nice day!
