Some of us here at Pop & Hiss have a theory that almost everything is better with cats. To see whether such a hypothesis extends to music criticism, we reached out to two clever women who were responsible for bringing the LOLcat phenomenon to the stage.
Kristyn Pomranz and Katherine Steinberg are the brains behind "I Can Has Cheezburger: The MusicLOL!," an off-Broadway production based on the popular blog about silly kitties with misspelled captions. The musical premiered at the New York Fringe Festival in August and may make its way to other areas of the country (paws crossed).
Ben Huh, the chief executive of Pet Holdings Inc., which is the parent company of the I Can Has Cheezburger blog, recommended the pair for our project. Despite being an expert in cat-speak, the Seattle-based Huh says he's not very knowledgeable about new music.
So while other music publications have already jumped on the phenom, Pop & Hiss went straight to the source, and asked Pomranz and Steinberg to bestow their musical criticisms onto goofy pictures of cats. In between work on their new musical -- "which is also about food but not about cats," Pomranz wrote in an e-mail -- the duo has let us know what your pets think about your music collection.

Lady Gaga is one of the hottest --- and most unusual -- acts around right now. She wrestled with Madonna on Saturday, and recently parted with Kanye "Imma-let-you-finish" West for her November tour.
Between all these forays into pop stardom and designing high-end headphones, does Gaga even have time to make good music? The cat thinks so.
