Nyan Cat doesn’t want to catch all the Pokémon; Nyan Cat wants to be all the Pokémon. In this video, Simon Johnson dresses the Pop Tarted up kitty cat as each of the original Pokémon to the tune of PopaRocks' 8-bit Pokémon theme song.”

So the New Aesthetic tumblr has now been closed, a year to the day. Does that mean this tumblr should close too? Stay open for a full year? Stay open for nine? Please advise!

The sight of one Maneki Neko, or “Lucky Cat,” beckoning to you from behind a shop window is cute—if you even happen to notice it at all.

Okay, there’s no cats in sight, but turns out the Dutch Government’s in the habit of pixellating the satellite’s gaze, slapping geometric patterns across sensitive GSV-scapes. Which is the say, the New Aesthetic-ularity just might have arrived

“The freedom promised by the scrollable world of Google Earth, like most everything else, has its limits. A satellite’s gaze is anything but objective; on the contrary, its biases are frequent and pronounced, as Mishka Henner’s “Dutch Landscapes” makes clear. When Google launched its free satellite-imagery service in 2005, governments scrambled to censor protected regions and domains considered too sensitive for public consumption. Naturally, reasons of national defense were stated, and the sanctioned landscapes were hidden under a cloak of visual tricks that included distortions of every kind, from pixelations and blurring to cloning and burning. Interestingly enough, the filters differed from country to country just as the objects of censorship varied from military bases and nuclear facilities to royal palaces and cultural centers.“ (via What’s Hiding Under Those Goofy Geometric Patterns? - Design - The Atlantic Cities)
