It’s been a while since we posted a cat video here on The Awesomer, so this 10-minute supercut should more than make up for their absence, as we meet dozens of kitties to see what they’re up to after a dip into the old wacky weed. Most of them are just naturally high.

Lots of us stayed outside to watch the big solar eclipse this week, but this isn’t the view any of us saw. Instead of looking up at the skies, the University of Wisconsin Madison time-lapsed weather satellite imagery to track the shadow of the moon as it crossed the US.
Gymkhana driver Ken Block teamed up with Pennzoil Synthetics to head to the scorching desert of Swing Arm City, Utah, pushing his 600 hp Ford Fiesta ST RX43 to the limit in 102° heat, and leaving a massive trail of dirt in his wake. His hill drifts and airtime are amazing.
While you think you might eventually get to ground level in Julius Horsthuis‘ short film, it isn’t going to happen. Instead we’re taken on an endless descent into a virtual city created with fractals textured with maps of a city. An entry in Ryuichi Sakamoto’s async film contest.

If you had any doubt that Japanese commercials are weird, tune into this ad spot for Domino’s Pizza, which includes a battle between rock and roll chickens and rapping pigs who represent four chicken-topped pizzas and four pork-topped ones. Picasso’s horse is just a bonus.
(PG-13) Wubba lubba mod mod! Rick and Morty fan zzcool and their fellow modders brought one of the show’s dimensions to Grand Theft Auto V. It includes the Cromulons, a working portal gun, Pickle Rick and more. It seems to have borrowed assets from Virtual Rick-ality.

One of the cooler bits of mobile tech from the 1990s was the Psion personal digital assistant. The Psion 5 offered a 5.6″ monochrome display, and a physical keyboard. Oldtech81 dusted off one of these relics to see if it still could serve a useful purpose in 2017.
