    That’s….um, lovely, Xeni.
    You can help me put it on the fridge. Not on the front, on the side

    The Astrocats!

    Xeni you have defined our zeitgeist, or weltkätzchen. And may I say, gesundheit.

    Aw Xeni, I like it with the little cupcake in the background above the astronaut! It’s super cute and balances the piece out wonderfully.

      Oh, I forgot about that layer. It felt too distracting to me at full saturation, I’ll pull it down a little and blur and darken, to simulate distance, then re-upload here.

    i know it’s shopped because there are no crosshairs in the sky, what are you trying to hide? Also there are more stars in your moon’s horizon than NASA’s moon.

    As it’s been a full 24hrs since the post, it’s far too old for anyone to see this. .

    Xeni – This is pure genius. I’ll bet you could get a federal arts grant. Clearly, the black and white portion represents the rape of history by future Info-Miners and that the kitten is symbolizing your reaction to the loss of man’s technological innocence. And those cupcakes are obviously a strong feminist statement. You could get $12,000 for this. Another $5K if you manage to work in 9/11.

    This is an appropriate chaser to Sock Monkey Centipede. Thank you, Xeni. I may actually sleep tonight thanks to your meme-y artistry.

    One small step for meme. One giant leap for memekind.

    This looks like a shop. I can tell by the pixels, and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.

      Actually, the only shopped part is the moon landing.

        Some conspiracy theories are history, written by the conquered.

        But some aren’t…

          If tiny Neil there tried to do battle with Sad Kitten-Lunar Defender, he would lose. Just look at the size of those cupcake missiles. And all Armstrong has is a golf club back in the trunk next to the spare.

          • Phlip says:

            If that were /really/ a vacuum, then the frosting on the cupcakes would sizzle & freeze-dry!

            (Like I was cringing, during, the movie Wall-E when they exposed that fragile little plant to hard vacuum..!)

          • cratermoon says:

            @cjp That’s not Neil Armstrong. It’s Scientist-Astronaut Harrison H. “Jack” Schmitt, on the Apollo 17 mission, taken during the 3rd EVA at Taurus-Littrow.

            One way you can tell it’s not Apollo 11 or any mission prior to Apollo 15 is that the earlier landings all targetted completely flat, open sites, out of safety concerns. It wasn’t until Apollo 15 that that crews and mission planners had gained enough confidence to target rugged, mountainous areas.

    My art teacher told us not to put red on the border of a composition. Does pink count?

  23. GuidoMescalito says:

    you can tell the kitty was in a studio, the shadows from the cupcakes are all wrong.

    I am here to inform you that this is a pretty smashing iPad lock screen.

  25. Bryan3000000 says:

    Yep, just found my new wallpaper. Why go with just plain old Aurora or Hubble images, when you can get a sad kitten, cupcakes, and a moonscape with an astronaut in the mix!

    The trouble with Tribbles…

    Xeni, you have jumped the shark.

    Is this a Xeni original?

    Yo Dawg, I heard you like memes. So we put a meme in your meme…
