The time has come! Some of our readers have presented Game of Thrones memes in…
It is obvious that I’m a fan of Game of Thrones. I have written character descriptions, comparing many of them to beer, and then more beer. I have practiced ways of proposing to Daenerys Targaryen, with or without dragons and with or without clothes. I got involved in a photoshop contest. But, it wasn’t enough. I needed more. Luckily, I found a cross-dimensional device that could very well help me get to Westeros, a place which my feeble nerd brain believed was not in the past, but in some weird, linear past where stunted men ran around screwing hot women, where political leaders were corrupt and suspicious, where Sean Bean would survive a movie or season. So with my hover-board, a photographer, a bit too much alcohol consumption, and a few hours in the desert surrounding Las Vegas, Nevada, I bring to you my trip to Westeros.
For those of you enticed by swords and shields, the Dragonborn, mad kings and maidens, and Sean Bean, this next month is more anticipated than Christmas as HBO’s Game of Thrones is set to release Season 1 on Blu-Ray and DVD on March 6th, and Season 2 premieres April 1st. Last year, we explained Game of Thrones using beer. While our own nod toward the next season will be just as epic, we wanted to get the rest of you in on the fun. Therefore, we are launching a photoshop contest based on Game of Thrones!
Boston, MA: After over five years and almost $35 million, the impossible has happened: the Curt Schilling video game has arrived for computer and gaming consoles everywhere. Not to be confused with the medieval-based RPG that Curt Schilling’s new production company, 38 Studios, recently launched(Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning), this new first-person puzzle RPG lets gamers play as Curt Schilling during his retirement. Heralded as the epitome of reality gaming, Expert: 2012, as the Curt Schilling game is called, allows players to interact with active MLB players, retirees, officials, senators, and anyone else that you can get to listen to you in the hopes of gaining their trust, boosting your popularity, and finding your place in Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame.
It’s been far too long since there was an update at Something Awful’s Star Wars Valentines, so with the help of some last minute brainstorming, we came up with two that you can send to the Alderaanian geeks in your life.
Recent social feeds have forced us to come across a barrage of a new type of meme: “What My Friends Think I Do” posters. Not unlike De-motivational posters, these quirky images highlight jobs and, using witty pictures to explain what your friends, moms, co-workers, shrinks, and pets think you really do. This would be a fine addition to the meme family, except that it has exploded so fast that you can’t turn around, figuratively, on the internet without bumping into one, much like the dreaded “Shit People Say” theme. So we have created the kryptonite for this specific meme theme. Go forward and multiply it.
For the past decade, our human lust for apocalyptic destruction and despair has been described with one word: zombies. Zombies have taken over literature with such Pulitzer Prize-winning novel such as The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance. They have had a resurgence in film, from remakes such as Dawn of the Dead to more recent flicks such as 28 Days Later and Zombieland. Now zombies have even taken to television, as AMC released one of the most graphic, yet poignant series to grace general cable: The Walking Dead.
No, I am not a fan of the re-released versions of Star Wars as a result. It wasn’t until this 3-D release, however, that I began to fully understand the method behind all of these Star Wars releases. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense that the blame for the re-re-re-re-re-release of the Star Wars series didn’t really fall on the shoulders of George Lucas. It fell on ours, the public.
