This time around, Random Access presents a pair of links which, each in its own way, celebrates the joys of fellowship with like-minded personages. It is, of course, purely coincidental that we have elected to exploit this e pluribus unum theme in the issue whose Jun/Jul cover date includes one of the most honored holidays of the nation whose motto that is.
Intelligent Design in action
If you have not heard of the Bunny of the Month Club, you should have done. Charter member Neil Gaiman (no relation) describes the Club in words which cannot be improved upon:
Every month I am made happy... Last month's was a centaur bunny. The one before that was a snow white bunny with one huge yellow eyeball, which would pull out from its body on a string with a horrendous ratcheting noise, and then slowly pull itself back. There's the bunny with the single ear and a lightbulb inside its head, and the Baba Yaga bunny with chicken legs, and a gorgeous mismatched patchwork bunny who reminds me of Delirium. They arrive wrapped in cloth, with mysterious notes and, on occasion, props, inside sealed-up coffee cans, to ensure that they don't get damaged en route, and they never do... It's the perfect gift for the person who has everything except really disturbing monthly bunnies.
That last bit says it all: "Really disturbing monthly bunnies." What more can any man ask of Life, the Universe, and Everything?
You owe it to yourself to visit, if not join, the Bunny of the Month Club.

Do you believe in a Divine Principle? Do you believe that a deity may have walked this Earth, incarcerated in a fallible mortal body? Do you believe that mundane humanity can be touched by God Himself?
If so, we submit for your approval the First Church of Shatnerology, the only religious institution devoted to spreading the good word about The Bloated One -- the cosmically ineffable One True Shatner -- and His Toupee. Do not mistake this site for yet another ignorable, eminently dispensable act of cruel and vicious parody on the Internet; rather, it is a truly inspired, albeit eminently dispensable, act of cruel and vicious parody on the Internet. How inspired is it? Enough so to have earned the (perhaps grudging) respect and (ditto) approval of The Bloated One Himself.
Sound intriguing? Visit the First Church of Shatnerology, and Enlightenment may (or may not) be yours.
