About this creation
The link to the 2014 MocOlympics
And to my worthy opponent's entry, Topsy! Good luck to you!

Bracket 1

Category: Living and dying in three quarter time: Build us a Jimmy Buffett song in Lego.

After listening to and reading a lot of songs by Mr Buffett, I finally ended up with maybe the less original choice, but the only one that seemed to inspire me: "Cheeseburger in Paradise"!
Some quotes from the song here and there, enjoy!

"Heard about the old time sailor men, They eat the same thing again and again"
"Warm beer and bread they said could raise the dead Well it reminds me of the menu at a holiday Inn"


Pirate : "Well boys, this storm had our ships wrecked..."
Captain : "Are we dead? Is there any food"
Skipper : "Anyway it's a cool place!" It's...

CHEESEBURGERS' PARADISE !!

Let's open the Golden French Fries Gates of Heaven!



Where Angels Heinz and Mustard feed you at will!...



...Where tomatos and "big kosher pickle" walk to you in slices!...



...Where rivers of "cold draft beer" flow!... (Mmm... Beer...) (Not suitable for young children. Drink moderately. Or don't)



...Where the sun is a sundae!...



...Where "french fried potatoes" grow in bushes!...



...Where trees provide you with meat, chicken, sausages, bread and so much more!...



The cast :

Big Burger and the Angels...





...Inside Big Burger - credits to Marie for that onion slice technique!



The whole crew : Little Burger, Big Burger, Tomato Slice, Pickle Slice, Angel Mustard, Angel Heinz, the captain, the pirate and the skipper.



A few detail pictures:

French fries bush, food tree and soda fountain.



Beer river, "beerfall", bridge and partly-stained-glass window.



And finally, pictures of the whole dio :











* * *

Commentary : Well that was fun! Even if I didn't know where I was going at the beginning... But Marie gave me plenty of ideas and advices, thank you so much! I went all in, well outside my comfort zone here, and all those Friends and Ninjago sets finally had their use!
For the record, the rainbow is my favourite part and is also the simplest build of the moc and the first thing I built.

Thank you all for watching, good luck again Topsy, and don't dream of rivers of beer!

Quoting Delatron 3000 I realised I hadn't commented on either of your r2 & 3 builds and sympathise with you for this category- I have no idea about the music or person either. Despite that you made a magnificent build. The parts use, colours, mix of scales and character building are sublime. Brilliant techniques And it ties together as a great whole. Superb stuff Tom!
Once you get THE idea that ispires you, the theme doesn't matter so much! Thanks for the superlative comment Stu!

That's hilarious! It's just enough reminiscent of Cloud Cuckoo Land to be cool, but the giant burgers and different color scheme really set this off.

Quoting Stephan N just cool, I love the ketchup and mustard bottles. Your overall scene is awesome. Again, more a typical Meticulous fine work of your hand, Tom. Good luck
Nice! Thank you!

Quoting Tyler Halliwell Beautiful build, with wonderful character throughout. I absolutely adore the ketchup and mustard bottles. You have my vote.
I'm beginning to think that last minutes build are the best! Though I thought of the angels in the very beginning, they were the last thing built. Thanks a lot Tyler!

Quoting Dennis Price You have managed to barely slip past Topsy to earn my vote. A great presentation with many wonderful touches -- your burger was great, and the angelic condiments earned my stamp of approval. Well done, and congrats to you and your opponent for a great round!
Thank you! This kind of rounds tend to get rare these days...

Quoting Topsy Creatori Tom, I’m happy for you! Perhaps this will be your year? I won't even assume to understand the seeding this year, but you may be up against Stuart D…. or is it Asad? But, if my memory serves me, you have made it to round 4 before in past MO’s? Best of Luck! :)
Thank you Topsy! It's been great fun fighting each other! I think I'm up against David. I didn't compete last year but made it to the finals in 2012... Hope to repeat this achievement, but the road is long, and my next opponents will be tough competitors!... Not that you weren't! :D

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist This is how it's done, folks. Awesome build Tom, you've mixed the signature zaniness of the MocOlympics with some elegant, top-tier building. Amazing work!
Thanks for the kind comment, Luke!

Quoting Nick Barrett Absolutely crazy in all the right ways and beautifully done. You have my vote. Good luck with the other judges.

Quoting El Barto ! Yeah, Willy Wonka and a little Munchkin Land, too. Excellent build with tons of fun details!
Is that from Wizard of Oz? It's not so famous in here, I'm afraid I never saw the movie... Thanks Bart!
 I made it 
  October 14, 2014
Quoting Topsy Creatori The first thing that came into my mind was that your build has a wonderous Willy Wonka feel to it. My favorite is the tomato slice. I can tell you had a lot of fun building this! I wish you the best! :)
Thank you! It sure was fun! Now that you mention it, the Willy Wonka influence is obvious, but it was completely unconscious! I did think about Cloud Cuckoo Land, though... oddly enough, the tomato slice was the worst part, in term of time/size approach...

  October 14, 2014
Quoting Yann (XY EZ) Excellent! I absolutely love this moc! It's quite a different one, because it is not very common to see a cheeseburger paradise in lego ... Good luck! 5/5
That's the magic of MocOlympics! Once you taste it... Thank you Yann!
