We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Lego My Oscars



Oh Lego building blocks, is there anything you can't do? Including representing the 2011 Academy Awards nominees for Best Picture? ---

It originally appeared during Sundance, but some of us are only just now catching up: Popular blog Gawker ran a series of images created by an anonymous apparent connoisseur of both Legos and movies, with too many Legos and too much time on her or his hands. Some of the images are iconic from their respective films: the tilted hallway battle from Inception, King George at the microphone in The King's Speech, the toys peeking out of a box from Toy Story 3. Others may require a bit more contemplation. But they're all terrifically realized; like some of the commenters, I'm particularly fond of the 127 Hours tableau.
