"The Hep Foods" Drawing

Here is a funny picture I drew of the Hep Stars, just I compared them to different types of foods.  


"It's Been A Long Time" - Hep Stars video

Here is a funny video that the Hep Stars did for their song, "It's Been A Long Time".
 I think this is a funny video, so I decided I would put it onto my blog.


(This is not a LEGO Animation.  It's a real Hep Stars video.)

"People Need Love" Animation

Finally!  I just saved the last part of People Need Love to my computer and saved the full animation!

I haven't gotten a chance to upload it to Youtube yet, but here it is for you to enjoy!




"Found!"

  Hello everyone!  Here is a post from Frida!  And Agnetha! 

Anyway, we've got some news for you.  I just found my first hairband!  I found it under my bed....  It's pretty weird that things can disappear.  So now I have two!

  And I found J.B.  (You know, my bangs.)   Bjorn and Benny hid it in the couch!  They're so mean to us girls some times....  I'm glad ABBAFan456 only made me one set of bangs...

That's all we've got to say for now!

I give you my love, my hugs, my kisses, and my everything!
-- Anni-Frid "Frida" Lyngstad

 Toodles!

"Have You Seen My Hair?"

  Hello!  I don't think I've ever posted here before...  Hello, I'm Anni-Frid Dollstad.  I would just like to say that I've lost my clip on bangs.  Don't tell anyone, but I named it J.B.  I don't know where my bangs are and I think you stole it!  Actually, I think Bjorn and Benny are playing tricks again and have stolen my bangs.

 I've been trying to get ABBAFan456 to make me new clip on bangs, but ABBAFan456 said no.  I think it's because ABBAFan456 is making us these new outfits.  I think they are the ones that we wore in "ABBA - The Movie". 

  I give you my love, my hugs, my kisses, and my everything!
  -- Anni-Frid "Frida" Dollstad

People Need Love Update

I finally completed the last two parts of People Need Love.  I saved the second part to my computer, but as soon as I was about to save the third part, Windows Movie Maker said that it had to crash for some weird reason.  Don't worry, I'll complete the animation soon. :)

"People Need Love" sneak peek

Here is a sneak peek for my "People Need Love" animation.   It's so hard to make these animations...  It took forever for me to complete this one part because my Windows Movie Maker was hanging and I would always have to crash it, my LEGO Digital Designer was taking up a lot of space, and I had firefox up with a bunch of tabs. 

Anyway, here's the sneak peek!
I hope you like it!

"People Need Love" Animation

  I finally found out what animation I should do next - even though I just put up a pole.  :)  I'm going to do "People Need Love".  It's one of my favorites and it's one of the only song that they all sing, so I'll do it.  I guess which ever song gets the highest ratings on my new pole will be the next animation after "People Need Love".

ABBA The Essential Collection

Yesterday, "ABBA - The Essential Collection" was released!  At least, I think it was.

ABBAsite had posted a link a few months ago about "ABBA The Essential Collection" and it said that the release date was yesterday.

Here is the link to the post on ABBAsite so you can see the content.

http://www.abbasite.com/the-essential-collection/

I actually want to get this sometime.  I would really like the Promo Clips that come on the DVD.  They would really help me with my animations.  :)

Plans for "The Piano Contest" and more

  Hi everyone!  I see that my dolls have been taking over the blog with their posts...  Don't tell them, but I know that they get onto the computer when they think I'm not looking.

  Anyway, (Oh great, I'm sounding like my dolls now!) here's what's going on with "The Piano Contest".

  I've got to animate what happens next after Agnetha sings Two Small Trolls.  I want Bjorn to come on and play a song and I can't really find a song that he sings with just piano.  I've decided to do Given A Little Bit More, even though that has drums in it too.  I also need to record more voices, I just haven't gotten any time to do it.

  I've decided that I should maybe suspend "The Piano Contest" and work on some more animations.  I was in the middle of working on Never Again, but I just don't really feel like doing it.

  I have many ideas for making animations for "When I Kissed The Teacher", "Does Your Mother Know" and "Tropical Loveland".  I just can't decide which animation to do next.  :(

  I guess I'll put up another poll for what animation I should do next.

"My Hairband"

  Hi everyone!  I've noticed that I'm the only doll posting these days...  Well, Bjorn did post once.  Anyway, this is Agnetha Dollskog again.  Do you like my new picture?  This picture and a bunch of others taken on the same day were taken at the beginning of April.  They were stuck on the camera for a while because I wasn't able to sneak past ABBAFan456 and get the pictures off.  I'll get them uploaded (hopefully) today.

 ABBAFan456 just made me another hairband because my other one got lost with Frida's clip-on bangs.  Well, they were made of the same type of yarn....

  That's all that I've got to say today!

"Flying!"

  Hello, my friendly ABBA fans.  My name is Bjorn Uldollus, pronounced Be-Yorn, not Bay-orn, Ba-jorn, Ba-jor-an, and certainly not Born. 

  Today I got to get a really fun ATV ride.  It went so fast, I was flying!  My friends, Agnetha, Benny, and Anni-Frid were riding too, but they didn't really go flying like I did.

  That's all I have to say today!  I'll probably post more later...
 -- Bjorn C. Uldollus

"The Outing"

  Hi fans!  Agnetha Dollskog is back and I am about to tell you how much fun I had today!  Today, ABBAFan456 was taking a trip out and brought me along!  We stopped by some old cars and they were really old!  I didn't even want to touch them - even though I am cloth.

  Then we went to a store.  ABBAFan456 brought me in and we looked around at a few things.  There was even a camera which showed what you looked like on a screen - I think that's what it is. You know, I'm only seven years old - or at least that's what ABBAFan456 says.  Anyway, it made me look funny because it showed what I looked like reversed.

  After that we went to another store and bought some wood.  ABBAFan456 put me in the middle seat and buckled it.  The only problem was that I'm so small, I kept on slipping out of the seat.

  Finally we got home and now I'm sitting at the computer, typing away.  The other ABBA dolls keep on telling me that I have gone out too many times and that ABBAFan456 should take one of them instead.  Well, ABBAFan456 did take Bjorn out on a boating trip a few weeks ago...  And Frida did go somewhere with ABBAFan456 a while ago.  I don't really know what Benny's been doing, though.

  Anyway, I don't want to get caught, so I'll stop the writing and let the other ABBA dolls use the computer.  Bjorn and Benny have been waiting for me to get off so they can go play some computer games and chat with their friends...  Frida doesn't really care because she spends most of her time playing with her little felt dolls.

  Toodles!

"New Outfits"

  Hi everyone!  This is a post from Agnetha Dollskog.  You know, Agnetha the doll?  To the left is my profile picture!  It was scanned in on the scanner!  I think it's better quality than the pictures taken with the camera!  Bjorn doesn't agree with me, though.

  Anyway, ABBAFan456 just made us ABBA dolls new outfits with our names on them!  Unfortunately, ABBAFan456 misspelled my name.  She wrote Agneta instead of Agnetha.  Maybe it's because I've been trying to tell her that my name pronounced Agnetha (An-Ye-Ta), not Agnetha (Ag-Nay-Tha).  I don't really mind the misspelling because then people will actually say my name right!

  Bjorn, Benny, and Anni-Frid got matching outfits with their names at the front.  Because Bjorn's name has two dots above the O, I keep on thinking it's screaming!

  ABBAFan456 also made me a nice below-the-knee white skirt with a matching jacket which ties at the front.  At the back of my shirt their is the letter A made of rhinestones.  It took forever to iron them on because they wouldn't stick.

  I also got this nice red hairband!  Unfortunately, I lost it today.  It looked a bit like the hairband I wore in 1982.  Wait a second, how am I supposed to know what it was like in 1982?  ABBAFan456 said I'm seven years old.  I feel like I'm 67 years old.  Besides, on the Hasta Manana  video ABBAFan456 made for my birthday, it said that I was turning 67.  I'm so confused now.

  Frida also lost her clip on bangs!  Why is everything disappearing?  Speaking of disappearing, a few weeks ago, Linda (my daughter who seems to have come from the future) disappeared and we couldn't find her.  ABBAFan456 finally found her sitting under one of the couch cushions.  Linda was lying down there with her hands under her head as if she didn't do anything wrong.

  Peter also disappeared and was found in another couch cushion.  So many weird things are going on, ABBAFan456 is convinced that we're alive (don't tell anyone, but we actually are alive.  Or else how would I be writing this?) and that we're sneaking around the house in the middle of the night.

  I've got to stop writing now because ABBAFan456 is walking over, and I don't want to get caught.

504 views already??

Do I really have 504 views on my blog?  Well, my blog stats says I do...
Have that many people seen this blog or is it just me viewing it every day to check the stats?

I have no idea, but I really hope I'll get more views and not just me.  :)

"ABBA" Comic

Here is a small picture I did on bitstrips of the ABBA members in their outfits that I think they were at starpade and the Olivia Show special.

I hope you like it!

If you want to see what the costumes look for real (and enjoy a special medley with ABBA, Olivia Newton-John, and Andy Gibb), watch these videos.  :)

Scanning... Bjorn!!!

I was scanning in some pictures when suddenly, Bjorn jumped onto the scanner and got his picture scanned!
More accurately, I was scanning some pictures and decided to see what would happen if I scanned in one of the dolls.  So I grabbed the nearest doll, which was Bjorn, and scanned him.
Here is what the picture looks like!

This is also a sneak peek at the new doll outfit's I'm making.  :)

"Chiquitita" Animation

I finally completed the Chiquitita animation I was working on yesterday morning.  
My Windows Movie Maker kept on crashing and hanging.  It's probably because I had LEGO Digital Designer up.

The set for Chiquitita isn't all that big, but I guess the big base plates I used for the floor and wall were pretty big and were causing my computer to slow down.

Anyway, here is the Chiquitita animation for you to enjoy:

"Little Redheaded Riding Hood" Comic

Here is a funny comic I just completed called
"Little Redheaded Riding Hood", based off the story of "Little Red Riding Hood".  

In the comic, Agnetha plays as Mrs. Red, Little Redhead's mother, Bjorn plays the Grandma, Benny plays the Wolf, and Frida plays Little Redheaded Riding Hood.

Virtual ABBA Paperdolls

A while ago, I had searched for some ABBA paper dolls that were free and downloadable.  Unfortunately, I didn't find any.  So that's why I made my own ABBA paper dolls.

I did find some virtual ABBA paper dolls at stardoll.com.

Unfortunately, you can only dress up Agnetha and Frida.  Bjorn and Benny are always stuck in their Waterloo costumes.  :(

I Am An A - 390 views!

The first LEGO Digital Designer animation I ever uploaded to Youtube was a 5 minute long rare ABBA song called "I Am An A".  I was so excited when I had gotten 100 views!

Now, I have 390 views!   :D  It's pretty exciting to have 390 views, even though I wish I would have 1.000 views like some other videos.  

Here is the video for you to enjoy:


Cleaning my Dolls' faces

I have finally made my decision:
I will wash my Dolls' faces!

Actually, I already have!  :)

Here are some pictures of my Agnetha doll before and after I washed her face.


At first, there was just a little bit of dirt at the side of Agnetha's face.


There was a water stain below her mouth and the stain on her right cheek (viewers left) was getting bigger.
She had also gotten another stain on her other cheek.


All three stains have gotten a bit worse.


The stains were getting worse!


We finally cleaned off the stains with a cotton ball, soap, and water.  The stains disappeared and now, Agnetha looks as good as new!

My Cat Dresses!

Here are some pictures of ABBA's famous cat dresses!
I mean the ABBA dolls' famous cat dresses!
There are also some pictures of the newest doll!  You'll figure out it's name soon.  :)

Anyway, I hope you like these pictures!
