"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)

A fifteen-page essay on John Boorman's
, um, rather unusual film. Other analyses are here
: Imagine a science-fiction film where the entire special effects budget was spent on cocaine.

That's the only way this film could possibly have been made.
