HAPPY NEW YEAR 1982!!
Oh, wait, it’s 2012, isn’t it? Of course, I realize that it’s 2012: the year the world ends to those who also believe reality shows aren’t scripted and think the earth is 7,000 years old. But to me, based on what I see out there in popular culture, there is so much love for the 8-bit retro aesthetic, it’s kind of ridiculous and awesome. There is a “simpler time” technology era sentimentality that I can see. The 8-bit squid double-retro image above comes from Chris Zimmerman.
The blinking (click on image to see it animated) 8-bit holiday wreath available from Thinkgeek is pretty cool, I must admit.

And of course, 2011’s biggest 8 bit hit was definitely the Nyan Cat, so the Happy Nyan Year Cat was just a matter of time.
You do know Mr. Nyan, right?
Thanks for all the yummy 2011 page hits, imbecile lovers!!
