Below is a guest post from my awesome friends, The Fucking Unicorns. They’re Colorado Burning Man family and their art car, The Imagination Machine, is going to be epic:
Dear friends of Capacity and Desire,
How are you? We think you’re swell. Also, you smell nice. Say…do you like unicorns? Do you also like rainbows? Who doesn’t, right? Hey…remember that rainbow art car last year, covered in clouds and humping unicorns? Guess who has two hooves and made that thing…The Fucking Unicorns! No really we did…and we’re working on getting “The Imagination Machine” back out to the playa so that we can play with you again. Wanna help?
What’s that you say? You don’t know who the Fucking Unicorns are?
Well…we’re a theme camp based primarily out of Colorado. We share a collective desire to add more life and color to the world. We are “those” people. The ones walking down the street wearing a little more pink, a lot more faux fur, and way more sparkles than might be considered decent. You know the type? Then we are your new best friends with whip cream and a cherry on top.
What now? You don’t know what the Imagination Machine is?
(Sigh) The Imagination Machine, our pride and joy of the past year, is a mobile double rainbow with 7000 programmable LEDs, unicorns, glowing clouds, an aerial rig, cuddle cave, dance platform, and one of the best views of the playa. What’s not to like, right?
Okay…now you remember. What’s that? Oh…what are we trying to do?
Jesh…so many questions. Okay, here’s the deal. We have a handful of repairs to make to our current vehicle and are working on purchasing a bigger and better vehicle to serve as the long term base for the Imagination Machine. We also have some cosmetic improvements we hope to make by August – like new lighting programs for the LEDs and brighter lighting for the clouds. In the long term, we’ve got some big ideas that include everything from a second aerial rig to new aerial apparatuses to ride-able carousel unicorns to crazy ground effects!
So you want to know what you can do to help, huh? Great question!!

You Sir, are a god among men…a king among non-kings…a star among lesser magnitude stars. What’s that? Oh, you’re a woman? Sorry. That mustache is confusing…but it looks good on you. Shine on you hairy diamond and we will see you on the playa. Good talk Russ.
