Introducing James and Dude

May 24, 2009

I had the good fortune to be asked to cat-sit two lovely kitties, James and Dude, the past four days. I am sure they will be making more regular appearances on Cats ‘n Stuff.

This is James:

I was told James was the smarter of the two. James has proven to me that intelligence is a relative concept indeed.

This is Dude:

I have found that they love to stare at me a lot, as you can already see above. More proof?


Play him off, keyboard cat

May 16, 2009

I love me a good FAIL video as much as the next person. And I love cats. So the new meme “Play him off, keyboard cat” is something that combines two of my favourite elements: FAILs and cats!

Most of the videos out there that have incorporated keyboard cat (rest his soul) are real classic FAILs, such as:

Glory! And some are unexpected, such as this socially very interesting video of a child telling his parents he has become an atheist:

Queensday composition

May 13, 2009

Queensday here in The Netherlands was very dramatic this year, since a man ran into the crowd that was cheering on the royal family and killed seven people. It took a while to process what happened, and to actually post this picture that I love. I took it on Queensday, and it was one of those surreal compositions you cannot think of yourself, except maybe after consuming copious amounts of alcohol or drugs.

The headlessness, the humping of the computer screen, the leaves, the bikes turning their backs to the scene… I love it! What I loved even more is that I saw someone walking around with this puppet in her hands hours after I took the picture, truly happy with finding it abandoned on the streets. The screen must be so lonely now though…
