The next step in the Ant’s Eye View journey
One hell of a ride. That’s the only way I can describe the last 6 years. It was about that long ago that I decided it was time for me to leave LEGO and strike out on my own. It was one of the hardest, and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. LEGO […]
The YouTube complaints department
