Alphabet Blocks for a Geek Baby
"Amateur engineer/designer" Jonathan M. Guberman made his newborn son a set of custom engraved wooden alphabet blocks, with "things that his mother and I were looking forward to sharing with him" on 4 of the 6 sides. (See them all here)
"The only real rule I followed in choosing subjects was trying to maintain an even gender balance" which makes them even more awesome. (Of course, your choices for certain letters may vary)

Entrants in the Philips-sponsored constrained cinema competition Tell It Your Way
were restricted to three minutes and just six lines of dialogue: “What is that?,” “It’s a unicorn,” “Never seen one up close before,” “Beautiful,” “Get away, get away,” and “I’m sorry.” In spite of these limitations, the winner
was surprisingly profound.

Peter Grudzien lives in New York and makes psychedelic country music
or at least used to, since only two albums of his material ever came out, The Unicorn
in 1974, and The Garden of Love
, which is mostly a collection of demos. His songs are varied, ranging from noise music to straight up country, and their subject matters are equally wide-ranging, from strange fare, such as lyrics about his clone being at Stonewall
, to straight-up love songs
. His best known original is probably The Unicorn
, a beautiful song whose lyrics
recast the early 70s New York gay demimonde in terms of a barren zombie-filled wasteland which will be reborn when the titular unicorn is found by the queen. Other songs on YouTube are White Trash Hillbilly Trick
, New York Town
and an instrumental cover of the Georgia Gibbs hit Kiss Me Another
. Finally, here's a lovely cover of The Unicorn
by Calgary folkie Kris Ellestad.

uniCornify the Web!
That's right. Unicorns and rainbows when you feel the web is icky or frustrating. Here's what Metafilter
could look like. If you want you can add their java snippet to your browser bar and cornify anything!

I think....that unicorn love is a beautiful thing, and that if you find a spicy sexy unicorn stud muffin and want to let him fill you with his magical glittering seed, that is just fantastic.

The Unicorn Orgy ...as I sculpted unicorns, one by one, things went their own way--the ghost orgy turned into a playful group of varied mythical creatures, nothing like the dream. Still, it started with unicorns. Most things do. (NSFW)
