I Believe I Can Fly

Memes. Oh how I love you so.  You take a clever idea and then make it better and better (and then eventually boring and worse).

A new take on the motivational poster is all over the show. Lots of people are taking the quotes of famous film or television characters and inserting them into the inspiring, typically office-bound, prints.  I’ve seen all sorts…Karen from WILL & GRACE, Jenna from 30 ROCK, Malcolm from THE THICK OF IT, etc…

It’s cute.  But once you get the joke, you get it.

Or DO you?

Let’s see what Clarence J. Boddicker has to say about that.

Campaign Surfing

The elections are coming up here in Great Britain and, as it is with most countries, there are parties who represent every shade of the political spectrum.

Some of the more conservative outfits are using Immigration as a wedge issue and engaging in some successful fear-mongering.

Hitting back at this campaign of misinformation, Movement Against Xenophobia has unleashed a promotional campaign which features a variety of immigrants who contribute in essential ways to like in the UK.

Here is the website: http://www.noxenophobia.org/

The posters they’ve created, I think, are effective. Here’s a sampling:

Anyway, I thought I’d use this new progressive meme to help further my own selfish aims.  So, I’ve done my own. I hope you like it and think I’m super clever and good at Photo Shop
