"Wedding Cake I helped work on for a super stoked bride who was a huge LOTR fan."  All I can think is that this would make for a really morbid birthday cake with a Denethor candle on top.

"Arrival" by Kevin Tong
I finally rented this movie this weekend. It was outstanding - a modern day Slaughterhouse 5. I watched it three times, and I was as impressed the third time as the first.  It's going to kill me watching A Madea Halloween sweep awards season.

Short Film: Tears In The Rain

"Tears In The Rain" (A Blade Runner Short Film) by Christopher Grant Harvey

Check out this outstanding Blade Runner-inspired short film created by Christopher Grant Harvey on a budget of just $1,500!
In a dystopian Los Angeles future, replicants or genetically engineered humanoids are created to work forced labour on off-world colonies. The latest generation, the Nexus 3 series, begins to display erratic and violent behaviour. Replicants were not designed to experience complex emotions or develop long-term memories. In the wake of corporate scandals of the previous decade, the Tyrell Corporation quietly attempts to remove Nexus 3 from circulation.

Cthulhu-inspired chocolate skull

Calc-Man is a MSDOS-era Pac-Man clone that looks like a spreadsheet, written by Dan Tobias.  It's a game that is its own boss key, albeit not a very convincing one. You can play the DOS version here, or if that's too fancy for you, the older Apple II release.

Maastricht, Netherlands LEGO enthusiast Berthil van Beek has created an incredibly complicated machine, known as a Great Ball Contraption, out of LEGO that continually accelerates small LEGO soccer balls and basketballs through a winding roller coaster at 1,000 RPM.
