I'm in ur dark alleyz. The lolcat phenomenon gets adapted for the Buffyverse fandom. The Firefly equivalent can be found over at lolfirefly on LiveJournal.

Love LOLcats. Love LOLrus. Even liked LOLcorgan.

These though? Don't really do it for me.
Yeah, it's the fake glimpse inside the cat brain that makes it so funny. We know humans already.

Still, cute idea.
Could someone post a link to the original for those of us who are catching up? Or hopeful of catching up?

This link reminds me of Da Ali G Show.
Any day now Time will have an article on Zero Wing or the domo-kun. Seriously, they are totally cutting edge! Sarcasm? You're soaking in it :) I'm up in ur blog, eduteeng all ur postz.
From the Time article:

These home-made cartoons seem to lift the veil on a truth that we all quietly suspected anyway: cats are small, childish, sentient beings, mischievous and innocent at the same time.


That's putting WAY too much thought into lolcats, dude.

Article aside, I agree with Caroline and Willowy that lolbuffy fell sort of flat. And I loves me some lolcats.

All your sarcasm are belong to us !*

In other news, some kid looked a bit daft recently while pretending to be a Jedi using only a stick and according to t'intarweb sources Hamsters are, in fact, proficient dancers.


* It's coming back, telling you ;).

O rly?
There's a recent thread on the flickr talking about them, too.
O rly?


Admiral Ackbar says, "It's a trap!".

Oh, wait ...
Some of those were cute...I dug happy Angel running out of happy.
As mediocre as some of them were, the Firefly "Badgerbadgerbadgerbadger" one totally made me cackle. Now all I need is a few 4chan memes and my day will be complete.
The Firefly ones were somewhat better, of the mildly amusing variety. The Buffy ones just fell flat mostly.

I can waste hours looking through hundreds of lolcats. Love them.

BTW, on All Your Base making a comeback:

As far as lol memes go, these are weak. I view this as a challenge to the Buffy fandom to do better.
Ok, on further exploration, the one with the Nerds and the ray gun is approaching what I'd expect. And some of the Firefly ones are funny.

Hands up who has heard the lolcat song?

Hands up who has it on their music player?

My hand is lonely.
"As far as lol memes go, these are weak. I view this as a challenge to the Buffy fandom to do better."

I had no idea we were linked here until *just* now.

To answer that quote above....I ran across the lolbuffy community and found it interesting. I never really thought about doing tv shows as opposed to cats. I liked most of the Buffy ones and thought, "OoOo I should make a Firefly one." My bff had the same idea so we created it together. In no way were we "challenging" the Buffy fandom to do better work. In my first post I even credit lolbuffy as inspiring me to create lolfirefly. I enjoy messing around on Paint Shop Pro and thought, "What better way to waste many many hours than to waste them on something Firefly related." The result was lolfirefly.

I live by the "you can't please everyone all the time" theory. So, I realize not everyone will find these funny but I enjoy making them and that's enough for me.
death is my gift, I liked the Firefly ones better than the Buffy ones. I hadn't looked at the Firefly ones earlier when I made the first comment, which is why I made the second comment. Neither of which were entirely clear, my apologies. I meant my challenge comment as more of a comment about inspiration and potential fun. I don't usually like lol memes, so I'm not really your intended audience, but I do occasionally find some of them to be hilarious. So it says a lot if I saw these and thought "meh" overall but liked a few of them. I don't like any memes in most collections I see. I look through them anyway sometimes because when I find one funny, it's really funny. Like Jayne licking his knife.
"Like Jayne licking his knife.

hahaha Of course my bff gets all the credit for that one (and the glory) as well as the above mentioned "badgerbadgerbadger" one.

I hear what you're saying. I wasn't upset or anything. Takes a bit more than a little negative feedback on the internet to do that.

I'll simplify:
me like Firefly
me like Paint Shop Pro
me happy making silly graphics

:)
I enjoyed the Zoe "expecto patronum" one. Kind of overdid it on the strawberry jokes though.
badgerbadgerbadger has slayed me at work. I horked teh beverage, and many witnessed it. Thanks for that.
"horked?"

nice.
Yay. That one is actually mine.

"Kind of overdid it on the strawberry jokes though."
We haven't discussed this with each other but we take the "strawberry" thing as a replacement for "cheezburger." Because strawberries are so coveted in the black. *shrugs*
I thought they were all pretty much amusing. I will never tired of "I has a hat".
Thanks Simon. That actually means something coming from you.
Where the frak is the badgerbadgerbadger one? I can't find it anywhere! I have to say though, that I found the Firefly ones hilarious and the Buffy ones so-so, though the "OMGWTFBBQ!" made me laugh really really hard.

I think one of the problems is that a lot of the pics are too small. It detracts from the style a little bit.
HelloSpooky: It's "behind the cut" where the poster says, "2 More".
And it's also available through this handy link.
OK, here's my feeble efforts.

The picture is that surgeon trying to take the chip out of Spike's brain in S5.

Caption:
"I'm in ur brain
Making you ambiguously evil"

Second one, picture is of Willow on the bed at the end of "I'm under your spell". Caption: "Invisible -", well, you can guess the rest. Unless you're under 18 or whatever.

Judge away!
death is my gift, I think it is cute, great work! I especially like "up on ur bridge, stealin' ur husbin" and OH MY how I LOVE the "i has a speshul hat, lolz" :) Awesome! I can't help but smile and giggle when I look at it.

As Willowy mentioned above, we've been talking about this on flickr:

http://www.flickr.com/groups/whedonesque/discuss/72157600737110977/

Ever since Willowy started that thread I've been engrossed in this new obsession :) Laughing is so addictive.
I thought the Buffy ones were actually pretty funny, especially the "I'm in ur dark alleyz" one.

Funnily enough, speaking of the Time article, that's what got me to start looking for lolcats...I had seen them before, but never really checked them out...and now I love them.

Unfortunately, the Firefly page won't load for me.
"Unfortunately, the Firefly page won't load for me."
Keep trying!

"death is my gift, I think it is cute, great work!"
Thanks a lot! "up on ur bridge stealin' ur huzbin" is one of my personal favs.
I told you it was a good idea, death.
I hadn't see the Badgerbadgerbadger one yet. That one's ace.
Having spent a lot of time on Fark I am familiar with lolcats. I think they're funnier if you're familiar with the cat versions they're based on and as a spoof/homage. The lolcats are funny in their own right.
I is did a buffy one.

(I love the lol-fireflies. They is plz meee lik sum cookies i ated. the buffys not so much funny-writ.)
"I told you it was a good idea, death."

Yup, you did.

Jayne Is A Girl's Name gets all the credit for the "badgerbadgerbadger" pic.
QuoterGal:
That's cool but I would have put "in ur brain stealin' ur sane"
And, is that Clare Kramer?? I don't think it is. If so, it surely doesn't look like her much.
Yeah, it's the original Glory - it's a bona fide screenshot - the proportions are wonky, I think. I changed 'em a bit but without the right image info, didn't want to go too far.
That is awesome.

im in ur head, suckin ur brain.
I never saw lolcats until the Flickr discussion started. Even though they're cats, I keep going back and finding myself...well...lol. (Gee, thanks, Willowy & Caroline. Yet another website I visit daily.) I found the Firefly ones amusing--thanks death is my gift. The Buffy ones, not so much, but for some reason, Dawn in italics made me chortle. And QuoterGal, yours was the best lolbuffy yet. Please do more.
Finally saw the Firefly one! Nice stuff.
