The show about the show, but before the show, but still kind of it's own show…
About this creation
Good evening I’m Joe Fullerschmidt, and welcome to the 2008 Mocie Awards. Tonight, we honor those whose tireless dedication and skill has shined down on us, bringing joy to our otherwise meaningless lives. We’re here to revel in the celebrity, grandeur and elegance that is, Mocpages stardom. Now without further stalling, ‘cause he’s finally out of the bathroom, let’s send it over to SigPhipson Figgy, live on the red carpet.
Thanks Joe! I’m here on the red carpet and the stars are out in force tonight! I’m hoping to be able to meet some of those stars and get their thoughts on tonight’s big event. Here comes one of the nominees now. Let’s see if we can get a few words.
Emperor Ludgonious, You’re nominated for Best on going theme. Can we get your thoughts.
Thank you your Highness for those inspiring thoughts
Umm Siggy, that wasn’t the Emperor… it’s just a box.
Siggy: OK then… Oh look, it’s Mocpages Superstar Chris Phipson. Hey Chris, A few questions if I may. Is there any truth to the rumors that these awards are fixed?
Chris: Next question.
Siggy: We see you nominated yourself in a few of the categories. Is this an act of egotism or do you truly believe you’re that good.
Chris: Next question.
Siggy: Is it true that you posted the red carpet show and the awards show separately just to get more reviews?
Chris: Next… question.
Siggy: How about the rumor that you’re a pathetic manchild who plays with LEGO because he has no social life?
Chris: Next… F#@%ing... Question.
Siggy: A-a-a-are you looking forward to the event?
Chris: Oh yes. This is a great event and I’m happy to be a part of it. Part of the proceeds are going to benefit the Shannon Sproule Toupee fund, so it’s all for a great cause.
Siggy: Thanks for your time Chris and enjoy the show.
Hold on a minute, I think it’s him. Yes, it is. Ladies and gentleman Mark Kelso.
Siggy: Mark, the viewers would love to hear some of your thoughts on tonight’s show.
Mark: Can’t you see I’m a little busy here?
Siggy: Mark, You’ve been nominated in seven of the categories including Builder and moc of the year. Is there any pressure to perform in your work?
Mark: Well, after the pressure of “performing” at home, this was nothing for someone of my skills and prowess.
Siggy: Do you believe that you should be as big of a star as you are?
Mark: Have you seen my stuff? I’m a genius. That’s not ego, it’s just fact.
Siggy: We heard a rumor that you bribed some of the voters?
Mark: Like I would need to do that. I’m a legend. They should be bribing me for the privilege of voting for greatness such as myself.
Siggy: Are you worried at all that the Ocean/Phipson joint “Future Warning” may bump you out in the best story category?
Mark: Please. Those hacks couldn’t write their way out of a paper bag. Tonight is going to be a clean sweep for Camp Kelso. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have autographs to turn down because I’m just too important for those sycophantic HALOkiddies.
Siggy: Thanks Mark, it was a pleasure talking to you.
What a magnanimous individual. That’s a wrap from us down here in the trenches. It looks like it’s gonna be a great night! Back to you Joe!
Thanks Siggy. We’re gonna take a short break. But be sure to come back and join us for the 2008 Mocie awards brought to you by the LIU who reminds you, “Come visit and bring money.” We’ll see you soon.
Fourth wall commentary – “What the Hell are the “Mocie” awards? Where was the “Vote” page? Why wasn’t I asked to vote? Who are the nominees? Is this Serious?” Did I cover most of the questions there? About 30 of you out there in mocpages land know what’s going on, for the rest of you, allow me to explain. A few weeks back I got this wild hair and decided to find out who you (the mocpages community) thought were the best of the best of the last year. I did some lookin’ around and got together a list of nominees in a number of categories. These “ballots” were sent out to about 30 mocpage builders. Most of them e-mailed their votes back to me. The votes were counted and then sent to an independent source for verification (a member of mocpages who will remain anonymous unless they decide to out themselves. I’ll never tell). The results will be posted in the greatest awards ceremony to ever grace mocpages… OK, it’s the only ceremony to ever grace mocpages… but you get the idea.
And in case you were wondering, no. Mark Kelso is NOT really like that. He is one of the coolest guys I’ve ever met. I mean come on, he puts up with ME on a regular basis which really shows his character. Most of the jokes at his expense were run by him and approved with a “what have I done?” type of response… head in hands. What, don’t believe me? Here’s your proof…
Olive Garden may never be the same...

I do try to clear most of my jokes with the brunt of them before I post (as long as it doesn’t give anything away). Keep that in mind when you tune in for the "2008 Mocie Awards", coming soon to a mocpage near you!
Excellent. It's so funny. (and I really like the Octan-guy!!!)

How could Chastity resist those two fine fellas at her Olive Garden? They had her at "Hello! Can we get some service here?!!" Just revisiting some of the golden oldies here. No, not you two.. the MOC. ;)
i have always wondered why they decidedto make the famous red carpet well, red. why not have a blue carpet? enough of my blabbering. nice moc. is there an award for building a vig where some dude is sitting on the toilet, had explosive diahrrea, got it all over the walls, and finally after all of his troubles, he ran out of toilet paper!? (please avoid aking if it has happened to me.)
Wow, now I am even MORE excited to see it! Wow... I can not wait! Hurry up!! ;) Oh, and if Mr. Young gets a gun, can I bring my bow? (I got a new one, and am so excited, but not as much as I am for this!)
Thanks for bringing up painful memories of being bullied on the playground in my youth Doug... (that was a joke for those of you new here). Actually, there's a long story behind that but for brevity's sake we'll just say it was the "come get some baby" look I was giving Chastity... (Thanks again for the name Mark. You know how it is trying to keep the LEGOgroupies straight). ~ Chris.
The white box may not be the Emperor, but it is property of the LIU. Just set it right next to the stage. If we end up losing, a surprise might pop out. I mean, after all, we spent all that money on bribes...errr..I mean seat tickets. There's some funny stuff here (even in the comments section) and I look forward to the main event.
So the big night is finally here, huh? Well, I’m looking forward to it, but I must say I’m disappointed at the curious exclusion of some fairly important categories. For example, what about “Best anatomically correct giant female demon cyborg?” Or how about “Best Black Fantasy/Post-Apoc dio involving a giant worm made from inside out tires?” No “Severe overuse of the mini-fig heads from the Avatar line” award? Really? *sigh*
I’ll be in attendance Chris, but I must say, your transparent bias toward some of the most cherished genres in the Lego community has cast a pall over the entire event before it’s even truly begun.
Great commentary, Phippy. I've decided to hold out of the voting because I wasn't in any of the categories. This had to be rigged...actually, it was because I wanted to sit back and enjoy the show. I don't think that I don't desrve to be a part of something like this...yet. Next year, man, next year.
I wonder who the nominees are going to be. I probably won't be one of them, cause you don't know me or have checked my stuff, and this is my first year on Mocpages. So, not gonna be me! anyway, great moc dude!
Hey Youngy: just be grateful you weren't burnt to a crisp on a moonshine-fuelled camping trip! Great post Chris! You had me laughing at every line. BTW please give generously to the Shannon Sproule Toupee Fund: your pity brings me hair!
I notice Kelso on the red carpet has a gun jammed in his belt. So I just gotta say, my sig-fig better be packing at the ceremony too! I'm going up against him in several categories and I don't want to be the guy who showed up at a gunfight with just a knife.
Actually I think I might go visit the LIU homeworlds' homeworld. I was planning to go to Hamburg tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure they don't have shark tacos there. Well, that was interesting, Phipson.
Yeh, that fist on the chin and finger in the mouth move always works on the ladies. Especially with the ultra cool T-Shirts at the garden! You had those ladies at hello! Didn't even have to pull the I'm a genius or I'm an officer move!
What a fabulous idea! I'm not nominated?!*sniff* Well, at least Mark is happy (those red eyes will haunt me in my dreams)! My favorite joke is "the Shannon Spoule Toupee fundraiser". *stifling giggle*. C ya around~ElNickre
Well the long anticipated day has arrived! "Camp Kelso" is thoroughly looking forward to the big event, and now that everyone's gotten a chance to catch a glimpse of my charming personality and dapper fashion sense, I'm sure they'll all be heartily cheering for...Shannon Young! Hey, I wanted to ask you, did Chastity (the taller Brunette) ever get your underwear out of the Olive Garden atrium or give you your handcuffs back? Just curious. Yeah, yeah...I know...next question!
