Meowth, Nyan Cat, Bubsy, Jiji, Rosie, and over a dozen other kittens celebrated in this pixelart by Paul Robertson (click or a larger version). Can you name the other cats?

"Go West, Young Meowth", my favorite episode from the Pokémon anime — not that I’ve seen many of these.
Takeshi Shudo, the man who penned this episode’s screenplay and once served as chief writer for the animated series, passed away yesterday at the age of 61 after suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Shudo also created classic anime Magical Princess Minky Momo and contributed to works like Martian Successor Nadesico and Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
Shiren readies his sword for a new game (just a few more days before the U.S. release!) by Potionhead.
While scouring the net for Shiren fanart, I came across this wonderful Meowth the Wanderer piece:
How awesome is that? Meowth is the fucking truth.

From March 20 through April 12, Japanese Pokemon Centers are celebrating a Meowth Festival (Nyasu Matsuri)! The stores will sell stuff decorated with this nice (I think) Meowth/Magikarp pattern, and fans who bring in DS copies of Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum with unevolved Meowths of level 30 or higher will get special Meowth phone straps.
I suspect we’ll have our own little Meowth Festival when Eric finds out about this.

Kevin: Imagine that I let you borrow $50, but in exchange for my generosity, you promise to pay me back the $50 with an extra $10 in interest. To make sure you pay me back, I take your Charizard Pokémon card as collateral …
Let’s say that the Charizard is worth $50, so in case you decide to not return my money, at least I’ll have something that’s worth what I loaned out.
But one day, people realize that Pokémon is stupid and everyone decides that the cards are overvalued. That’s right—everybody turned twelve on the same day! Now your Charizard is only worth, say, $25.
At the same time, you’re having trouble paying back the $60 you owe me. So what would you rather do: try and pay me back the $60 or just default and give me your $25 Charizard?
Olivia: I’d give you the Charizard.
Kevin: Exactly. Who wouldn’t? Now, the bank — I mean me — has lost $25 when I expected to make $10. What’s the lesson here?
Olivia: Pokémon is dumb
Really, our economy would be in a much better state right now if financial institutions had traded in something more stable, like Meowth cards.
