You know, I was actually going to blog more extensively about this, but I realized it kind of explains itself.

The most recent project from the endlessly awesome Dino Ignacio, creator of Bert Is Evil.

What Are They Now: The LOLCat Show

As per last time — we’re doing a series of blog feature stories on the new projects that’ve been popping up lately for some of the ROFLPartners that we’ve worked with in the past.

This is out of control.

Just caught the word from the team over at I Can Haz Cheezburger that after much consideration, they’ve decided to go ahead with throwing an honest to goodness LOLCat gallery show in San Francisco October 23rd. We hear it’ll be some swanky digs, with hors d’oeuvres, mixed media exhibits, and the whole thing. They’re looking for legit art commentators and the general gallery community to come out to experience the general image macro joy, so it should be an awesome group of people.

You can read more about the submission details here at ICHC. Pieces are due this Friday, so get a’crackin!

Can’t lie — the Team had some jitters going into it and after — but it looks like the Twitterati have spoken: ROFLThing rocked. Our speakers were kickass all the way through, DJ JD was crispy on the wheels of steel, and our open bar ended up making the entire place a total fire hazard. In other words: it was great.

Mostly we’d just like to say thanks, San Francisco. You love the Information Superhighway. And so do we.

I’ve been trying to see if we can’t wrangle the video (speaking of video — here’s Adam Jackson’s recap) from the event — in the very least, there’s been some blog coverage and some photos (here and Flickr tag), which should give you a sense of the ridiculousness that went down a week ago. You can also get Ben Huh’s slides on microhumor here.

Glad to report that we’re already onto the next thing — I’ve been putting out feelers about our next ROFLThing event in NYC, and trying to set some other events rolling. Stay tuned to this blog for all the breaking information on that and drop a comment if you have any suggestions on who’d be cool to get.
