unicorn update

It just dawned on me that it’s been a while since I’ve given you an update on the Severed Unicorn Head project. Well, things are going pretty well. We just sold one of our “Love” t-shirts yesterday to someone in LA who identified herself as a “studio executive”, so I imagine any day now we’ll burst into the mainstream, and I’ll be able to retire from blogging forever. (You do know that I just blog for the money, right?) One of our stuffed unicorn heads also showed up a little while ago in a video by David Meiklejohn, the guy who’s working with Davey Rothbart on the documentary, “My Heart is an Idiot.” And, the stickers are beginning to show up all around the U.S. We’ve got lots of stuff in the works too.

The most recent product we’ve rolled out are severed unicorn head greeting cards (pictured here) by our friend Tim. They’re cool. You should order some… Unless, of course, you can only afford to buy one thing. If that’s the case, I’d buy one of my severed unicorn head paintings. During the month of March, I’m throwing in Hitler mustaches for free!

    May I request that you keep your littering out of my neighborhood? When I walk home, I note the unicorn advertising stickers plastered all over light posts in my ‘hood. You said, here,

    “As I’ve stated here in the past, I’m not a huge fan of graffiti.”

    All righty. Then perhaps you could find a way to successfully market your product without trashily littering my neighborhood?

    Like Tootsie Rolls, I too, am now finding severed unicorn heads wherever I go. Seriously, I’ve recently seen tattoos, necklaces, and even a coffee mug with what I now recognize as disembodied unicorn heads.

    This past week, I purchased a sticker book from The Rocket for my little girl that, upon arriving home, I discovered contained a severed unicorn head.

    She was playing with it. Like it was a toy.

    As far as I’m concerned, severed unicorn heads are the new acid rain, and you, Mark Maynard, are the tall chimney spewing this shiny toxic silver bloodbath across our nation’s once green valleys.

    You are warned: I am drawing a line in the sand. And, like mercury, I intend to follow it wherever it goes.

    Hmmm… I’m sorry to hear that you’re finding stickers around, Laura. I’m not sure, however, that there’s anything I can do about it. I’ve never stuck one up in Ypsi, myself, and I’ve never suggested to others that they stick them up in public places. I guess we could make future ones un-sticky, so they won’t stick to stuff, but that kind of defeats the purpose… And, for what it’s worth, I’m not a fan of graffiti. If I had may way, people would just stick them on the bumpers of their cars.

    I once found an old potato chip bag in my yard and wrote Lays a nasty note.

    Since my supplying severed heads to the local taxidermy fully supports my addiction to unicorn steaks and rump roasts, I am committed to the continued success of this project.

    Hey, for what it’s worth: a severed unicorn head shows up in this installment of “My Heart is an Idiot:”


    I assume it’s one y’all made and not some severed unicorn head competitor….
