Perhaps you like Canabalt. Perhaps you miss Lisa Frank. Or perhaps you just dream... dream of a robot unicorn leaping through stars with rainbow power. The music doesn't have to stop when the game does.

You had my second-grade-golden-retriever-binder-heart at Lisa Frank.

Hint: if game does not load, turn off your ad blocker.

I hear if you get past 7000 you get to a planet full of unicorns.

Is this post about trapper keepers? I haven't said that phrase in like a decade.

I love this game! I just wish there was a way for the unicorn to... not die. I didn't care what happened to the Canabalt guy.

I recently tried to find a Lisa Frank trapper keeper to keep my (fantasy, YA) writing stuff in, but apparently they're impossible to find these days. My life is empty. :(

This is quite possibly the best thing since kitty business trip.

Oh! I hope this isn't a spoiler, but I forgot to add that around 5000 points or so there are dolphins.

Wait, what's the opposite of a spoiler?

The best is when you can arrange it so that the dolphins appear when the song gets to the part about "jump into the ocean". I played this game a lot this week.

A game about unicorns isn't supposed to be this fucking hard.

Dude, I don't even need that YouTube link to know that. The music has burrowed into my brain and is planting eggs already.

if one of you jerks comes by to inform us that there's some additional something at 20k (baby snow leopards? manatees? mariah carey?), it's totally on you to explain why i had to cancel my wednesday-morning class.

I want to play this forever.

My dreams will have this as their motif and soundtrack now.

......I LOVE THIS.

After a long day of teaching and grading, who doesn't want to come home and be a rainbow unicorn that eats pixies and rocket blasts through stars? And there's fire too? And dolphins? SHUT UP. It does not get any better.

Lovin' it. I didn't know who or what Lisa Frank was until just this last year when I read this.

I don't think that I've ever wanted to be a girl more than when I found out about Lisa Frank. Well, OK, except for when I found out about the multiple orgasms business.

The refraction period in men is largely physical/mental and can be overcome with practice. So there is nothing stopping you from enjoying rainbows, unicorns, and multiple orgasms.

Miss Lisa Frank? Not possible! She's still churning out stickers with unicorns all over the place. I've got a bag full of LF stickers, with a good selection from as recently as last year. Perhaps I shouldn't have admitted that. Hm.

I hadn't played Canabalt before. Fun! Like some of the best stand-up cabinets at convenience stores in the early '80s. Only more awesome.

I don't remember there being so many Brattz-lookalikes on the stickers she had out when we were young. Golden retrievers, pink dolphins, unicorns, parrots, sure, but no people
