Block puzzle solution....

Anyone have a link that shows how to solve the block puzzle in this room? Or could possibly explain it in text??

On each wall, there is a tetronimo comprised of four blocks.

You have four blocks.

Here's a hint:

In order to solve the puzzle, you have to make the four blocks look like the tetromino shown on each of the four faces of the platform. In the real world, this puzzle would be completely impossible; however, because of the 2D perspective projections, you're able to hijack physics.

The easy part of this puzzle is to lay out three of the blocks so that they are in a 3D diagonal across the surface of the platform.

The fourth block is the devious one: You're effectively going to -- in 3D -- have a block that hovers in mid-air. In one perspective, it will appear over the center block; in the other perspective, it will appear over the end block.

In order to achieve all of this, remember that these blocks ACTUALLY do exist in 3 dimensions. Similarly, Fez has a 3-dimensional position as well (see the monolith puzzle for details). To do this, align the bottom three blocks in one perspective first... and THEN align them in the 90 perspective.

**BE CAREFUL not to jump on blocks when trying to align them in the proper positions! That will make Fez shift three-dimensionally so that he's actually on top of the block instead of where he was moments ago.**

I suppose that's less a hint and more or less a full explanation haha.

I kinda get what I have to do, I just can't do it.

First thing: though the blocks are shown adjacent in the pictures, you want your blocks to be in the glowing squares, so your solution for a T-block side will look like one block, then a space, then two blocks, then a space, then one block.

Try figuring out how the blocks should be arranged first. Specifically, where does the height-2 stack need to go? Try placing that one first. Afterwards, consider moving the other blocks around on the level below the "main stage" so as not to disturb your 2-block-high masterpiece.

As xumae alluded to, realize that your 3D position can be controlled by moving in one direction, then turning the camera 90 degrees and moving in the other direction without interacting with anything. If you did this with a block in your hands, then you could simply put the block down (Down + X) and it would be in the correct spot.

If you get the three bottom blocks arranged diagonally across the platform first, the easy way to tackle the box on top is to do it this way:

Orient the world so that you see the L-shaped tetromino on the platform. Then jump onto the center block in the platform. Move into the space between the two blocks OPPOSITE the end of the tetromino that needs to be a double stack. Then, turn to face the "two-stack", jump, and throw.

The block should then land on the far stack. And because you're positioned 3-dimensionally next to the center block (in the opposite perspective), the block will, when shifting perspectives, be on top of the center block.

Need video. This is too hard to read, especially drunk.

You are not going to figure out many of Fez's puzzles drunk. Go do some exploration instead.
