PixelJam's Retro Unicorn Attack takes the Erasure-themed game and demakes it even better. Play it just for the fantastic chiptune version of Always.
Related, here is a Sideshow World interview with Oberon Zell-Ravnhart who has been "re-creating" unicorns like the one seen above since 1980. In fact, he holds a patent on it. (Thanks, Stacey Ransom!)
I feel like the science posts have all been on the depressing side today, so please enjoy this pleasant, Buster Keaton-inspired film short.
Artist Rose Briccetti created this work for Regretsy, an Etsy metablog, as a commissioned work. The creative brief spotted on Etsy and republished by Regretsy editrix "Helen Killer," demanded "Lady Gaga in one of her bizarre outfits hunched over a unicorn carcass, blood all around her mouth." Go check out the full-sized image at Regretsy, along with the story of how it came to be.
[via BB Submitterator, thanks Eric Harley! Note: an earlier version of this blog post implied that "Helen Killer" issued the creative request herself, and she did not. The language of this post has been clarified.]
You have been marketing a product called "Radiant Farms Canned Unicorn Meat" using the slogan "Unicorn - the new white meat." ... National Pork Board is the owner of THE OTHER WHITE MEAT® in the United States and elsewhere around the world, and owns the following federal trademark registrations.Excellent source of sparkles. The legal rationale in these situations is often that you can't let someone so much as whisper your trademark in vain lest it be genericized or otherwise diluted; thereby implying that the threat is empty, and just to demonstrate active defense of the mark should a 'real' case ever arise. But I'm sure someone got paid for writing that 12-page letter. OFFICIALLY OUR BEST-EVER CEASE AND DESIST [ThinkGeek via @laughingsuid]
