Happy Halloween - Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear

Hey gang, sorry for the lack of update in the past 24 hours or so. I was in DC for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.

The Rally was pretty awesome; lots of great music, a lot of laughs. The entire Mall was pretty much standing room only. Let me see about getting some photos up here later. I unfortunately am unable to upload them right now because I left my camera in the back pack of one of my friends. But I'll probably get it from him tomorrow, so look here for them with tomorrows update if you are interested. ;)

I love DC so much, and the more and more time I spend down there the more beautiful I realize it is. After checking out all the monuments and memorials this weekend (before and after the rally) I was inspired. How would you guys feel about a 1:1 scale Minecraft model of the Mall in Washington DC?

I would be interested in modeling the area between Constitution and Independence Avenues From the Lincoln Memorial to 7th Street.
Key features would include The Lincoln Memorial, Reflecting Pool, Viet Nam Memorial, Korean War Memorial, WWII Memorial, and the Washington Monument. I would focus primary on the western area of the Mall before expanding to the actual "mall" with the museums and buildings to the east later on.


  1. I was checking out some of the signs from the rally, was pretty awesome.

  2. that would be pretty sick, and i look forward to those pictures!

  3. That's an epic prospect you're putting forwards there... Would be super sweet if you got it done well.

    Then again I've never been to DC so I would have no way of knowing if you got everything right :p

  4. very good post, and happy halloween

  5. happy halloween everybody!
    i hope everything goes well

  6. So jealous you went! I love DC and the Daily Show team, but I was too far and too broke to make it. Looking forward to pics.
