Read Animating URLs with Javascript and Emojis by Matthew Rayfield (matthewrayfield.com)
You can use emoji (and other graphical unicode characters) in URLs. And wow is it great. But no one seems to do it. Why? Perhaps emoji are too exotic for normie web platforms to handle? Or maybe they are avoided for fear of angering the SEO gods? Whatever the reason, the overlapping portion on the Venn diagram of "It's Possible v.s. No One Is Doing It" is where my excitement usually lies. So I decided to put a little time into the possibilities of graphical characters in URLs. Specifically, with the possibility for animating these characters by way of some Javascript.
Aaron Parecki is right, this is pretty awesome… If only this were doable on TLDs…

I can see Aaron Parecki or Marty McGuire using the timecode bits along with their audio related pages with media fragments.
