Kittyzilla, aka Jennifer, has done a series of embroideries based on one of my favorite things – the internet. She chose subjects that have become part of our global consciousness – even if they are ridiculous.

Do you remember the first time you saw the hamster dance? Lord knows I do.
Is the song in your head? Sorry.

How about “leave Britney alone” guy? That wasn’t just on the internet, it was on the national news here in the States. I guess because a creepy man-girl snotting on himself is news? Huh.

Poor Britney. She never asked for this.

Dramatic Chipmunk. Dramatic Prarie Dog. Dramatic Gopher. This guy has gone by a lot of names. Whatever he is, I love him.

He's dramatic, alright!

Ever since Dark Knight was released there have been a lot of Y so srs? images floating around the internet – just do an image search and you will be rewarded. I like this one best, though.

No collection of internet references would be complete without 2 girls, 1 cup. Don’t know what it is? DON’T LOOK FOR IT. If you simply must know, please just read about it at wikipedia. Don’t watch the video. You can’t unwatch it.

If you don't know, don't look.

If you don

Ok, an aside – Kittyzilla also does the most AMAZING handmade dolls. I’m a sucker for a softie, so I really wanted to post an example or three here:

  • Beefranck says:

    I want Rorschach, too, Rachel! He looks so sweet in plushie form!

    I did warn you, Claire. :) I’m very thankful that when I asked my friend what it was he told me “It’s a video – DON’T WATCH IT!” :)

    omg that 2girl 1 cup one is great..LOL..and yeah..i took everyone’s warning and did not look for the video..I was forever scarred by the one guy one jar video and vowed never to look for another video again..lol

  • Kittyzilla says:

    Aw, thank you so much for the lovely entry and all the nice comments! Also thank you for the warning about 2G1C, I’d hate for anone to be traumatized because of me. ;)

    If anyone is interested in a Rorschach, contact me on etsy or flickr if you want to buy one. Or, if you’re up to it, I’m also looking for pattern testers for the doll pattern I created and used for him.

    Thanks again!

    Such excellent stitches! I saw the hamster dance one over on flickr, but didn’t have time to investigate further.

    My brother had a hamster that we loved, named Swedish Meatballs. After we saw the hamster dance, we made a Hamster Cam video to entertain ourselves during my sister’s wedding reception. SO AWESOME.
