I could not care less about the Internet’s fascination with cutesy cakes, cupcakes and cookies. But I think I’m going to have to give in here because this Tyrannosaurus Rex cake made by Charm City Cakes blew my mind! Wow!

Jack’s Bar Mitzvah was last weekend. He wanted a big, scary, menacing T-Rex cake for his celebration. And boy did he get one. The whole team worked on this huge cake and personally I think it’s one of our best ever.

.
Jack’s one lucky kid.

A gorgeous natural phenomenon beautifully captured by civilian technology and made even more surreal by the total contrast of the accompanying unrelenting noisy industrial/cityscape. Can any Turkish (I think?) DM readers out there please illuminate further ?
 

 
With thanks to Tim Waters
 
Update: Smart and helpful DM facebook friend Jason L. points out that this is a massive flock of Starlings. Thanks !

Buy This Leash or We’ll Shoot This Dog

Get your naughty pooch in line with a gun-shaped retractable leash from Art Lebedev Studios. I wonder if the designers got the idea from the infamous National Lampoon cover of a dog with a gun pressed to its head? It sure looks like it. Whatever the case, it’s brilliant!

Povodokus sports a gun-shaped handle, which retracts the leash when you need to control your target dog. It’s a sure shot!

The lead goes out freely as the dog pulls and reels in when you pull the trigger.

In 2008, amateur photographer Sandra Critelli captured these stunning images of a mass migration of Golden Rays while looking for whale sharks off the coast of Mexico. She said, “It was an unreal image, very difficult to describe. The surface of the water was covered by warm and different shades of gold and looked like a bed of autumn leaves gently moved by the wind.”

Beautiful.

An extremely wild Fritz the Cat style PSA about AIDS awareness set to the tune of Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation.”  No animals were harmed while making this… I think.
