    • Video Game Review: American McGee’s Alice
      After the recent release of “Alice: Madness Returns,” I  picked up a copy. With each copy, console gamers also got a free download of  the original “American McGee’s Alice.” Before playing the new Alice, I had to  go back and beat the original again. While many things were just as I had  remembered, I’m glad […]
    • Video Game Rant: Donkey Kong Country Returns
      One of my favorite games of all time is Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2. When I heard they were making a new one, I was super excited, but also somewhat skeptical. So a few months ago, I picked up a copy of Donkey Kong Country Returns to try out the new game. My fiancee also joined […]
    • Scott Pilgrim Versus the World: Movie Review
       (Warning: some spoilers) When they decided to turn this Canadian comic into a movie, I’m not sure they were aware of what a cult smash hit this would be. Topping the charts for Blu-rays on the first day it was released on home video, it’s also been on several top ten lists. It appeals to […]
    • Good Kitty: WoW Feral Cat DPS Rotation
      ***Note: this information is from before Cataclysm. There have been major changes to the class. See my sources below for more updated information.*** When I rolled Druid on the first character I legitimately got to level 80, I didn’t know what I was getting into. I leveled Feral Cat, and when I hit 80, I realized […]

      This is a digression from my usual topics, but I wanted to share some of my strategies with other unemployed or soon to be unemployed people out there. My job search has been the focus of my free time lately, so I figured it would be the perfect topic for my next post. 1)      Assess […]

Mak Ur Own Lolcats

Wanna learn how to create your own lolcats? These simple steps will soon have you on your way to participating in the cutest internet meme of the day.

Step 1: Buy a cat.

Yes, the best way to get those crazy pictures is to have your model on hand at all times. Aside from being conveniently located next to many hilarious props, like window blinds and computers, they are also known for being quite camera shy. The best lolpics will be spontaneous and come out of nowhere, like Ceiling Cat, so it helps to have a cat on you at all times. You probably have one stalking you more often than you think anyway.

Also, keep in mind, cats aren’t the only animals that can be photographed, captioned, and posted.

Step 2: Buy a camera.

A camera phone, a webcam, or a video camera work as well. Anything with the word ‘cam’ in it. Don’t forget to pretend like you’re not interested in your cat at all when you’ve got that camera out. “Young male engineers will be familiar with this game, as they often use this same technique to attract the attention of ladies.”

Step 3: Get in touch with your inner lol.

Do your research. Here are some sites to get you started: the original, cute pics of animals, and the wiki.

Step 4: I can has caption?

Lolcat’s Razor Theory states that every lolpic has a simple explanation. Did your cat jump into a box and slide halfway across the floor? She totally meant to do that. Fall into his water bowl? He was fishing. Walk in to find your cat surrounded by paper towel shreds? The paper towels must have been fighting again.

Once you have your description, make sure it’s grammatically correct in lolspeak. Fluency in lolspeak does not develop overnight, so I’ve found this handy translator.

Using these 4 simple steps, here are some of the lolcats I’ve made as examples. Nao u 2 can has lolcats!
