Does anyone remember Яolcats? :D
http://rolcats.com/
They were bad translations of Russian-captioned lols, but there were only ever about 15 of them. I've always wanted moars, but they were first made in 2009 and then abandoned.. so!

Let's make some!! :D

Step 1: Make rolcats
Step 2: Get lots of tumblr followers
Step 3: ???
Step 4: World domination!!

It'd be easy for everyone, too. Cheezburger has a lol-builder, http://builder.cheezburger.com/Builder
so all that's necessary is..

- Go to Google translate
- type something ridiculous
- Translate to Russian
- copy and paste russian into the frame
- write nonsense English translation on the subjects of
(a) Soviet-era oppression
(b) Existentialism
(c) Communism/Socialism
(d) Russian history
(e) Matt Damon
(f) etc.
- post image here, then tumblr account holders (anyone who wants the password) can add it to tumblr.

We probably need a new name, though. Яolcats probably isn't trademarked or anything, but because there wouldn't be any affiliation..

Some name ideas:
- NewRussianLolCats
- NewRolCats
- SovietLolCats
- ...

Thoughts?? :D

Каменные стены — не тюрьма,
А железная решетка — не клетка;
Для невинного и спокойного разума
Это жилище отшельника.

With English caption:
The freedom of my body — is not an illusion
It has power — it can escape
But I give my mind to the state Panopticon

Exit Fee — The money a pimp will demand from a victim who is thinking about trying to leave. It will be an exorbitant sum, to discourage her from leaving. Most pimps never let their victims leave freely.

Out of Pocket — The phrase describing when a victim is not under control of a pimp but working on a pimp-controlled track, leaving her vulnerable to threats, harassment, and violence in order to make her “choose” a pimp.

Circuit — A series of cities among which prostituted people are moved.

Seasoning — A combination of psychological manipulation, intimidation, gang rape, sodomy, beatings, deprivation of food or sleep, isolation from friends or family and other sources of support, and threatening or holding hostage of a victim’s children. Seasoning is designed to break down a victim’s resistance and ensure compliance.

In the software the audio loops perfectly (which took a lot of time), but I guess Imgur's mp4 audio looping can't quite shake that little pause before the video starts over. Not sure I have any options for fixing that on my side..

That Nietzsche cat got a bunch of likes and re-shares on Tumblr (139 notes at the moment), but on Imgur it only got one upvote.. even though the Imgur version was higher resolution and had audio. And DystopiaCats now has 9 followers! It's basically famous ;p
My semi-abandoned movie review blog only has 17 followers, so DystopiaCats may surpass it in a few weeks ;)

Russian Caption:
« Наши работы украшают малахитовые залы дворца,
- и одежда царя и царицы.
Роял никогда не знал иго;
Они крадут уральское искусство.
Они заслуживают руин. »

English Translation:
"Our works decorate the malachite halls of the Palace,
— and the clothes of the tsar and tsarina.
Royalty never knew the yoke;
They steal the art of the Urals.
They deserve ruins."

English caption:
"Mine and my father’s works decorate the malachite halls of the Palace,
and the very clothes of the tsar and tsarina.
Royalty never knew the yoke;
They steal the art of the Urals.
I do not bow to them."

..
This one was based on Pavel Bazhov's "Malachite Casket". Green-eyed Tanyushka of the Urals inherits from her miner father jewelry that only fits her — symbolic, I think, of how workers themselves should own and inherit the fruits of their labors. When Tanyushka meets the tsarina, she does not bow, instead expecting that the she would get to see the tsarina — get to see her artworks on display. That not being the case, she leaves the Urals to fend for themselves, until, presumably, they learn to own their own works [and overthrow the monarchy].

Он не может сделать Изя́щные иску́сства.

He is now incapable of high art.
Ruled by money,
His spirit collapses with homogeneity and irrelevance."

Russian Caption:
«Тысячи поколений распадаются.
Остается отойти от мастерства археологии
- жизнь непостижима для меня,
несмотря на проблеск тщетных надежд.
Точно так же я похоронен переменами.»

English Translation:
"A thousand generations disintegrate.
Remains depart the skill of archaeology
— lives inscrutable to me,
despite glimpsing the flickering of vain hopes.
Likewise, I am buried by change."

English Caption:
"In these ruins fade a thousand generations.
Once spirited moments now depart the skill of archaeology
— lives inscrutable to me,
even as I lived to glimpse the flickering of their vain hopes.
And I too am buried by change."

This one was partially paraphrased from the below Dickens excerpt:
"A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other. A solemn consideration, when I enter a great city by night, that every one of those darkly clustered houses encloses its own secret; that every room in every one of them encloses its own secret; that every beating heart in the hundreds of thousands of breasts there, is, in some of its imaginings, a secret to the heart nearest it! Something of the awfulness, even of Death itself, is referable to this. No more can I turn the leaves of this dear book that I loved, and vainly hope in time to read it all. No more can I look into the depths of this unfathomable water, wherein, as momentary lights glanced into it, I have had glimpses of buried treasure and other things submerged. It was appointed that the book should shut with a a spring, for ever and for ever, when I had read but a page. It was appointed that the water should be locked in an eternal frost, when the light was playing on its surface, and I stood in ignorance on the shore. My friend is dead, my neighbour is dead, my love, the darling of my soul, is dead; it is the inexorable consolidation and perpetuation of the secret that was always in that individuality, and which I shall carry in mine to my life's end. In any of the burial-places of this city through which I pass, is there a sleeper more inscrutable than its busy inhabitants are, in their innermost personality, to me, or than I am to them?"

I was working on a gif update (Sleep Paralysis Cat) a few weeks ago, but then I got side-tracked. Then the 35th anniversary of American Flyers happened so I was working on a movie review for that (still in progress). I'm hoping to wrap up the gif tonight, but the minutes have been ticking away D:
