Who knew that a a pop tart cat would lead to over 50 million views on YouTube. This age that we live in, unbelievable. And of course, you can help to quench its growth by purchasing a Nyan Cat T-Shirt from Snorg Tees. The shirt is called Cat + Pastry = Rainbow and is available now Snorg Tees for $14.95.
And now some Nyan Cat history. It all stared with a little comic by prguitarman on LOL-COMICS. The comic was then reblogged on Tumblr over 3000 times. And then it led to a viral YouTube video (see below). And as they say, the rest is history.
Via Know Your Meme: On April 5th, 2011, YouTuber saraj00n posted a video titled Nyan Cat, using comic artist prguitarman’s Pop Tart Cat animation set to the well-known Japanese Vocaloid song Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya by Japanese artist Daniwell-P looping in the background, Although the song had been originally composed for Hatsune Miku to sing, The version used in the video was of the cover sung by the Utauloid Momo Momone.
The Free Movement Projec is a brand that started in 2008. Started by Ashton Vaughn, FMP is based on creativity and randomness. And other stuff:
“So, what in the hell does “Free Movement Projec” mean? Why doesn’t the “Projec” have a “t” on the end? To tell the truth, I don’t know why the “Projec” doesn’t have a “t”. Maybe style? But trust me, the name of the brand has a meaning. Free Movement Projec is an indie clothing project created out of my love for creativity. Each unique design is somehow inspired by music (GOOD hip-hop, electronic, rock, etc.) and street and abstract art culture. fmp is for the artist, the one who spends time on his/her craft, no matter what it is. Whether you’re just sketching at your desk or nailing that trick you’ve been working on, you are representing the Free Movement. fmp Clothing just personifies that love.”

Goody Two (Vans) by The Good Child.Pros: There really seems to be a renaissance of indie T-Shirt designers coming out of the state of Texas. The Good Child is yet another example of a Texas based brand doing it right. There is a lot to like about the box that The Good Child sent over to me. The first thing that caught my eye was the attention to detail. Each of the T-Shirts were hand-rolled and then tied by string. The ends of the string was even burnt to prevent it from unraveling. Another nice touch was the sticker that was tucked between the T-Shirt and the knot of the string. It’s always awesome when you order a T- and get a free item – plus, people love stickers! As for the T-Shirt, The Good Child uses American Apparel blanks. This means that each tee is 100% made in the USA. The blanks are from LA and the tees are printed in Dallas, Texas. The screenprint on this T-Shirt was very well done. The placement of the graphic on the front, back and inner neck was perfect and the inks used were bright, vibrant, and bold. It’s also tagless and features a screenprinted neck label instead. I was very impressed by both the packaging and the T-Shirt – both were well done.
Cons: There aren’t really any cons to speak of. The only thing that does come to mind, though, is the relatively high price tag ($29.99). However, I’d have to say that the amount of detail placed on the product and the experience and joy of opening this finely tuned T-Shirt makes this price well-deserving.
Man Up by Sir Riffkins The Third (Threadless).Pros: This shirt features a unicorn oozing rainbow bloOd and being cut up by a biker dude version of Chuck Norris with Hands made out of chainsaws. Plus, I can’t tell if that’s Chuck’s wiener or parts of his ab’s protruding out. Need I say more?
I missed the season premier of SNL but luckily I did catch a small bit on the Mighty Fine blog. The skit featured Perry in a very revealing Elmo tee, courtesy of Might Fine, and makes fun of her recent and controversial appearance on Sesame Street. Take a look:
Now you might be wondering how can score your very own Katy Perry inspired Elmo tee. Well, Mighty Fine has you covered. First of all, you need to buy the T-Shirt, which is available from Might Fine for $23. Then, you cut! No need to be precise either. Watch the short video and you too can be naughty like Katy Perry.
And of course, I’ve got a Mighty Fine tee for the fellas out there, who aren’t interested in exposing their man boobs. We’ve all seen the Double Rainbow video but have you seen the matching Double Cookies T-Shirt? It’s available now as a web exclusive at Mighty Fine for $23.
Robot Unicorn might be the greatest iPhone game that I’ve never played (up until now that is). Forget Angry Birds, if you haven’t tried out Robot Unicorn, you MUST stop everything, head over to the Apple App Store and download this magical game. It’s a life changer.
