This little happy child is poking fun at Nickelodeon execs who would criticize the main characters for being mean all the time. They would commonly ask, “Why can’t they just be nicer and happier?” In response Nick was created. He wears a shirt with an orange logo displaying his name—subtle—and is uncomfortably happy all the time.

Excellent origin story for the Droud kid

"Suppose there was an experience machine that would give you any experience you desired. Super-duper neuropsychologists could stimulate your brain so that you would think and feel you were writing a great novel, 
or making a friend, or reading an interesting book. All the time you would be floating in a tank, with electrodes attached to your brain. Should you plug into this machine for life, preprogramming your life experiences? […] Of course, while in the tank you won’t know that you’re there; you’ll think that it’s all actually happening […] Would you plug in?” 

    — Robert Nozick, “Anarchy, State, Utopia”

For an incredibly kawaii series entitled Invertebrate Sleep Habits, Japanese artist Hiné Mizushima (previously featured here) created this awesomely cute octet of needle felted sea creatures, each of which is tucked into an adorable little bed.

They were created for In The Palm of Your Hand, the January 2014 art exhibition at the EMP Collective in Baltimore, Maryland.
