With all of the excitement around Doctor Who lately, especially with the announcement of the 12th Doctor and the 50th anniversary special just a couple of months away, I couldn’t help but post this absolutely beautiful Weeping Angel cake.  I’ve posted a cool Doctor Who cake in the past that featured a Weeping Angel statue but it can’t hold a candle to the cake below.

I’ve seen some rather incredibly detailed cakes before but very few have reached the level of detail and beauty that this Weeping Angel cake has achieved.

This Weeping Angel cake was created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes.  I’m not sure I understand the whole bunny version of the 11th Doctor thing but even its sonic screwdriver is cool!

If I ever have a Weeping Angel cake made for me, these guys are the one to do it because I just can’t believe how incredibly detailed they made this cake!  My only concern is not being able to blink until it is entirely eaten.  I am a fast eater but not blinking for that long would be uncomfortable to say the least.

My already giant and constantly growing collection of t-shirts has a major lack of Indiana Jones.  I think I only have one Indiana Jones shirt and I could really use more considering how much I love the movies (not counting the 4th one).  If you are also suffering from an Indiana Jones t-shirt deficiency, I have found an incredible design that is on sale today only that can help you with your lack of Indiana Jones clothing.

The incredible folks over at TeeFury are selling this awesome Indiana Jones “Fortune and Glory” for just $11 today only!  All of the iconic Jones things are here from the hat to the revolvers to the ark.  If you are an Indiana Jones fan, I think this is the ultimate shirt for you!

I plan on ordering this awesome shirt just as soon as I publish this post because TeeFury shirts are awesome and this design by Matt Dearden is amazing!

While I appreciate the look that various companies give their video game consoles (although I think the PlayStation 4 is rather ugly), I often wish I had the modding skills to do something really cool with my game systems.  In the past, I have featured a number of really amazing Xbox 360 console mods including an Iron Man Xbox 360 mod, a Steampunk Xbox 360 mod and an incredible Halo Xbox 360 mod with Masterchief shooting the guts out of the 360.  Well, speaking of cool Xbox mods, this Halo one that came across my Facebook feed is pretty cool!

Sadly, I don’t know who made this really cool Halo Xbox 360 console mod but I’d say they did a great job!  I think the light up plasma grenade that Masterchief is holding is a great touch too.  The only bad thing about this is it you can’t really stand the 360 up on its side anymore.  I guess you could if you wanted to but it would look weird and take up a lot more space than it should.

One of the downsides of the neighborhood where I live is that around here, we don’t have mailboxes that sit along the street like many places do.  Many houses just have a box next to their front door for the mail or others are like me and just have a slot in the front door itself.  It makes me really jealous of people that do really cool things with their mailbox.

In the past, I have featured a really silly Futurama Bender mailbox, a Boba Fett mailbox, a rather clever Darth Vader mailbox and even a solar powered Star Trek mailbox but I think this Tie Bomber mailbox below is my favorite.

Sadly, I don’t know who this awesome Tie Bomber mailbox belongs to so if you know who the owners of this are, please let me know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they deserve!

If I ever move somewhere that I can have a real mailbox, I definitely want one like this.  Or maybe a TARDIS mailbox.  Hmm, that is a tough decision.

One of my favorite things to check out at my local state fair the giant sand sculptures that they often have (I don’t think they have had them the last couple of years for some reason).  Each year there is a different theme and they work on it throughout the fair so you can see them create this amazingly detailed sand sculpture that is easily over ten feet tall.  Unfortunately, while they have done everything from dinosaurs to sports, they have never done a Doctor Who sand sculpture and after seeing the one below, I really hope they do someday.

This fantastic 50th anniversary Doctor Who sand sculpture featuring the 11th Doctor, some Daleks, the TARDIS, a couple of Cybermen and a couple of Weeping Angels can be seen at the Sandworld sand sculpture festival in the UK.  The festival runs until November 3rd so you still have some time to go check this out in person if you happen to be in the UK between now and then.

I wish they would have sand sculpting festivals around here because sand sculptures are cool!

Even if you aren’t a complete space geek like I am, I would be absolutely shocked if you didn’t enjoy the occasional meteor shower.  Well, the Perseid Meteor Shower peaks this weekend and if you can’t get out to see it in person (I think it will probably be too cloudy where I am), then NASA has just the alternative for you!

NASA is going to be streaming the Perseid Meteor Shower tonight from 11PM EST until 3AM EST and you can watch it right here on Global Geek News with the ustream video player below!

They will be streaming the skies above the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. and they will have astronomer Bill Cooke as well as Danielle Moser and Rhiannon Blaauw from the NASA Meteoroid Environment Office on hand to answer any meteor shower questions you might have!   Up to 100 meteors per hour are expected so it should be a rather spectacular show!

Whether it is too cloudy where you are, too much light pollution from whatever city you live in or you just don’t feel like going outside, just come back later tonight and you can catch all of the action and learn a few things too!

Note:  Until the show actually starts, you will either see a grey box or pre-recorded footage in the video player below.
