In honor of North Korea’s big victory over democracy by keeping the movie “The Interview” out of theaters, I’m throwing this gem into the builder.

Rock and Roll and Gif-Together

Hi Burgers,

Last night I went to a concert for a band that was a big part of my high school days with a group of my high school friends. In a fit of bro fueled nostalgia and sweet sweet tunes, I did a lot of this.

Then I realized I’m old now and all of that has repercussions on my ear drums. Someone make the ringing stop!

It was totally worth it though.

What’s new with you guys?

I dunno about rock but I am definitely down to roll!

VioletD

Still blame Yoko.

mamawalker

Senpai didn’t notice me yet.

Gnolex

Totally into Rock and Roll.

Merry Human Christmas Trees!

Hi Burgers,

Happy Monday! This is what we did on Friday!

There’s tinsel everywhere. I voted for Jay on the right because he was my team’s “tree”, but Ciana is clearly channeling the Beast Mode Christmas spirit in her Marshawn Lynch jersey.

Work? I’m sorry I don’t understand the question.

Cheers,
Evan

We Could Learn a Thing or Two From Snake73

snake

Hi Burgers,

This week’s Featured User has effectively summed up humanity’s relationship with the feline tribe by asking the question “would anyone who loves roses complain about their thorns?” Pure poetry Snake73, next time I’m mercilessly clawed by a kitteh I’ll be grinning ear to ear.

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
That’s simple. It’s the short form of SnakePlissken73. You know, “Escape from New York” is one of my favorite movies. So when I had to choose a nickname when I started to play Counter-Strike in a clan in 2000, I thought of that movie and picked SnakePlissken. Later when I registered to other sites I saw that the nickname SnakePlissken was already taken and I tried Snake or Snake73. I think you can imagine where the 73 comes from, of course my year of birth. By the way: my real first name is Marc.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I’m not quite sure if it was 2008 or 2009 when I joined. I took some pictures of cats and was searching the internet how to get a caption on the pic in a simple way. I saw “lolcat” in the search engine many times. So I wanted to figure out what a lolcat is. That’s how I found the cheezburger page and the lolcat maker. When I was asked to register I thought “Why not?” and joined.

What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
I’m looking for people who have the same kind of humor and/or love cats the same way than me. I’m not sure what the best way is. Some of my cheezfriends send me an invitation, I accepted and some months later I found out that we have much in common. Sometimes I see a frontpage lol that I like and want to know the story behind this. Sometimes I see a profile with a discription that makes me smile, then I send friend request. Sometimes I see that a cheezfriend favorited a lol that I like, too. Then I look closer who made it. And if he or she is not jet a cheezfriend I send a friend request.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
Lolcats of course. That’s where it all started for me. And that’s where I still have most ideas for own lols. But I also like Animal Gifs, Daily Squee, So much pun, Geek Life, There I Fixed It and Senor Gif.

(The first lol)

What is it about Cheezburger that makes you happy?
Sounds simple but for me it’s a happy place where I can laugh and make other people around the wold laugh, too. And I can show you my cat pictures. When someome uses one of my pics for a lol and I like it that makes me happy, too.

Tell us something super interesting about yourself—an embarrassing story, a quirky habit, something that will make us laugh!
Oh, I answered question 13 first. So there you can find two stories. My bad!

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cheezburgers?
No, I think something vegan. I’m not a vegan yet but if I had to choose like that it would be a good reason to make a change.

If you could create a new feature for Cheezburger members to use on our sites what would it be, and why do we need it?
I don’t have any idea for a new feature but there are some features that I miss like rating other people’s lols in a sub-page before they become frontpage lols. I’m sure there were good reasons to change that but I never unterstood why.

What else do you like to do when you’re not on the Internet?
OMG, you mean there is a world outside? :-) I visit the animal shelter in my home town, pet cats, take photos, videos and share them on Cheezburger, Facebook and YouTube (oh no, there it got me again, the internat). I also go to the cinema. I love movies. I spend time with my friends too.

Where do you often find inspiration for your LOLs?
At the moment I make nearly all of my lols with own pics, so I know the cats and their characters. Sometimes were real situations like that, sometimes it’s just a new interpretation of the pic. To make a long story short: knowing the cats on the pics makes it easier to find inspiration.

Do you have any favorite vacation spots? Is there somewhere you’ve never been that you’d like to go?
I don’t travel very often. Maybe another one-day-trip to Paris. Yes, and I would like to travel to the U.S. some day. Oh, what a good transition to the next question. :-)

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
Exchange it to Euros. :-) Yeah, and then I think I would buy a new car, a condo some photo equimpment. That would make a vacation to the U.S. possible, too. And last but not least I would donate a generous amount of money to the animal shelter I visit regularly.

Do you have any animal companions, or have you had any in the past? What is special about them?
There were three bunnies when I was a kid (not at the same time). But in the last 24 years I didn’t have a pet. But there are some companions that I visit at the Mönchengladbach Shelter. First of all there is Pascha (or Pasha) a Norwegian Forest Tomcat. He and two other cats (Paul and Mietzi) have a great forever home together with 2 (human) friends of mine. Pasha changend my life. I would never have turned into a cat person without him. You know he is a tomcat with excellent manners to humans. He would never hiss at humans, scratch or even bite them on purpose. I never imagined that cats like him exist before I met him. I began to like cats and I got caddicted. :)

And there is Rasputin, a leading tomcat… no, THE leading tomcat at the animal shelter I visit regularly. It was not easy to make friends with him. It took some months until he trusted me. But then he jumped on my lap and let me pet him. He likes to do so whenever I visit him (not every single time, sometimes he is busy and has to do some tomcat stuff like inspecting his territory). I have to watch his body language (tail and ears). Sometimes he still bites and scratches me. But that’s not a problem for me. I know that he only does so when I don’t respect his STOP! meow or he misinterprets one of my hand moves as an invitiation to play – and my hand is the prey for him. And finally: would anyone who loves roses complain about their thorns?

One of Rasputin’s typical stunts.

If we were coming to Germany to visit, where would we absolutely have to go?
Well, that depends on your interests. And I dunno many different German cities by myself. I’ve never visited Munich or Berlin. But regarding the cities I visited yet, you should go to Cologne, Düsseldorf, Dresden and the island Sylt.

Any plans to get a pet soon? Would it be a kitteh?
No, not at the moment. I think my appartment is too small for pets. But when I move next time I’ll keep in mind that the new appartment has to be cat-proof. :)

Thanks for the interview Snake73! I hope everyone finds some time to stop and give the roses a belly scratch this weekend.

Cheers,
Evan

Nostalgic for a Little Gif-Together

Hi Burgers,

While cruising for a Christmas gif this morning I came across this little gem compliments of catophile.

These brave souls are surfing a perpetual wave that rolls in the Eisbach river in the center of Munich. I was there last year for Christmas and watched these dudes for a good half hour before retreating to the warmth of the Hofbrau Haus for a maß of dunkelweis and pretzel. I’m a real thrill seeker.

You made my day catophile, thanks.

What are you guys up to?

That looks just how I feel about today: hard work getting nowhere. Need some funnies after a long day at the office!

Chris10a

I’m taking this course on “How to thwart your enemy by being a lunatic”

This will surely come in handy.
violetD

Speaking of surfing :)

Grew up in Germany and my maternal aunt and uncle lived in Munich. Didn’t have no sufing way back then. But if you want to get into the Christmas spirit, the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt is the bestest for decorations, beer and brats LOL.
Sylviag

I don’t surf the waves…I BITE them!!

But, here’s what I’m really doing:

Featured Fur Monster Friday: The Inspiring Story of Frankencat

Hi Burgers,

The only way that Frankencat is a monster is maybe of the cuddle variety. This special little dude’s story comes to us from Bernadette Kazmarski’s post on The Creative Cat and Heather Long. Franken’s tale is an award winning story that is a testament to the incredible will that animals have to overcome the odds and retain the ability to offer completely unconditional love.

Try not to tear up, I dare you.

Featured Fur Monster Friday: The Inspiring Story of Frankencat
unnamed-3

I’ve just been informed that Franken has found a home too! After the great adventure that Heather went through with OGD, Franken and the rest of her pit bulls, there was no way she was letting Franken out of her life. He has gone from foster to adoption. Check out all of the details here!

Happy endings are just the best.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Cheers,
Evan
