lol cat 12926 Fleet Foxes Robin Pecknold scores existential LOLcats film

Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold will need to muster all of his unfathomable depth and sensitivity for his next project: scoring an in-the-work film project entitled The Internet – A Blog Cats WTF Universe. As Pitchfork points out, Robin’s brother Sean (who has directed several Fleet Foxes music videos) and Matt Daniels will helm the film, which tells the story of an existential crisis experienced by “one of the best LOLCat caption writers in the world.”

According to the project’s Kickstarter page, The Internet will use live-action shots combined with cartoons and a 3D animation of God to act as an intersection between “viral internet cat humor” and “life’s biggest questions,” which include, “Why are we here?”,”Who or what is God?”, and “What is the impact of technology on our minds and souls?”, with the entire plot boiling down to a “story of a man’s hopeless quest for truth among the cats.” So, like a more cerebral version of Garfield?

The project is looking to raise $15,000 for completion and each donor will receive a download of the film in advance of its release. So far, 60 backers have pledged $2,831 with 38 days left until the pledge closes.

The campaign’s accompanying video features portions of an unnamed acoustic track, though it’s unclear if that’s Robin Peckold’s contribution or not. Watch the video below.

In Existential Crisis person generates negative thoughts about his existence, But there are a few things that when explained can reduce his feeling of emptiness of his life. It is important to make him understand that the situation is not caused due to his thoughts. Besides, everything that he thinks is not real but an illusion, and his idea of the world is how he perceives it, and not what it actually is. http://www.whatisall.com/psychology/what-is-existential-crisis.html

Friends of mine in Long Beach wrote an opera called LOLpera. It’s entire libretto is used strictly from found icanhazcheezburger images. It’s going to be in LA in June at the Hudson Theatre and may be in New York in August. Here is a video of clips of the production we had in Long Beach.
