The Unbearable Dankness of Meming

10 Apr

Long ago, back in the days of yore, there was a brief period of time during which I was REALLY into “This Thing Of Ours”  (IE: blogging.)  So much so, in fact, that I embarked once upon a true summer of bliss and in August of that year did in fact succeed in providing the world with no less than one blog per day for an entire month!  A major accomplishment to be sure, but the truth is this sudden burst of uncharacteristic motivation was inspired by the desire to get laid.  And it almost worked.  Almost.

Then I fell back into the pit of despair that is my usual day to day drudgery.  I went to work.  I went back home.  I sat in my apartment and played solitaire on my computer, listened to depressing music, consumed varying amounts of alcohol,  smoked weed when it was available, and did little else.  A year went by.  I had a girlfriend for a minute but that pretty much turned out to be a sham, which I should have known.  (In fact I did know but…I went through the motions anyway, cause why not?)

Then my step dad died so I wrote a blog about him.  Another year went by.

Then one of the best friends I have ever had died and I wrote a blog about her.   And another year went by.

If it sounds like my life is completely miserable…let me just stop you right there.  Because I at least have a sense of humor.  And I find comfort in the little things.

For instance, I like to make, and share memes.  Sometimes they make sense only to me.

Sometimes they appeal to a much wider audience.  Our current “president” for instance… I have to admit… I’m kind of thankful for.  His stupidity is a constant source for new humorous material.  So what if the end of our planet is almost certainly being hastened by his ignorance? It’s funny, right?  After all, we’re all going to die anyway.  We might as well have a good laugh while we’re waiting.

I wasn’t planning to live forever anyway.

This new thing of mine pretty much all started with something called “Danzig Memes.” For those of you who are uneducated in the ways of Danzig:  Glenn Danzig is a singer.  He was the front man for a great horror punk band called The Misfits, who had their hey day from the late 70’s into the early 80’s.

Danzig is known primarily for being really short and saying “WHOA” at some point in almost every one of his songs.  All of these things make excellent contributions to the art form known as Danzig Meming and there are several fan groups dedicated to this subculture of memery.  I myself have joined several of these and had a great time contributing my creations to them.  I was unfortunately kicked out of the biggest one due to a schism between members that I really had nothing to do with,  but whatever.  So it goes.

So I moved on to other subject matter.  Such as popular current television trends coupled with ancient and long deceased musicians.

The Hodors

Old fashioned holiday songs people are currently offended by due to possible date-rapey connotations mixed in with blatant racial stereotypes make excellent meme fare.

Baby It Cold

Memes featuring Dwight Schrute of The Office never fail to elicit a positive response:

And when all else fails:  The Room:

Lisa will tear us apart

Occasionally a new trend will start, and I always try to jump on the bandwagon, especially when such trends inexplicably remind me of someone I’d rather not be reminded of.

Maybe tomorrow I will write an actual blog.  Probably I won’t though.  This is my life now.
