The Meming of Life:
Uber Frosh vs. Lazy College Senior

Ahh college. The great institution of higher learning. A concentration camp for coming of age stories. Today we take a look at a young lad entering the system, full of big ideals and ambitions. Then we take a look at the effects of the machine on that young lad, and see how he develops. 4 years of college packed into 10 memes.

Welcome to Omega-Level University.

The Meming of Life:
Ordinary Muslim VS. Successful Black Man

That’s it. Enough! I’m sick and tired of all the damn stereotypes! So are these guys. Our friends Ordinary Muslim Man, and Successful Black Man might seem like a couple of meme’s slathered in a buttery bigotry creme sauce. But at their best, they provide a deeper underlying message about casting off our individual cultural identities and finding a place for ourselves in the black hole of mainstream (American) culture. Shit is deep, yo.

The Meming of Life: Carreon Sues

Carreon Sues

If you didn’t do the required reading, you may not have heard of this guy. Right now Charles Carreon is the most hated man on the internet. Now, I could give two shits about a ridiculous lawyer suing a site I find mildly humorous. But when his ridiculous actions solidify his position in the universe of meme, my journalistic instincts kick in, and I am forced to take notice. After all, I’m merely a vessel doing God’s work.

The Meming of Life: Prometheus

Prometheus Meme

It’s that time again. Time to shove our meaty paws into the depths of the internet grab bag and see what fun prizes we can scoop out. And this week is a treat: Pro-me-the-us! The film’s stunning visuals were like whipped cream on a pile of shit. But we already knew that from our more scholarly interpretations found elsewhere on Spaceship OL. Now we get to check out what other sardonic assholes thought, in the medium of meme.

The Meming of Life: Courage Wolf VS. Insanity Wolf

Courage Wolf vs Insanity Wolf

There is a fine line betwix courage and insanity, and the same rings true in the universe of meme. These two pups are the perfect archetypes for a deeper discussion on the difference. Some of our most beloved heroes we would probably consider insane, and so many of our insane villans have far more courage than the rest of us pleabs. The best part about the meme world is that there is a layer cake of laughter with some real depth down in the middle for those who care.

Just like last week, let me know which you enjoy most in the comments. God-speed, and good luck.

The Meming of Life: Scumbag Steve VS. Good Guy Greg

Good Guy  Greg vs Scumbag Steve

Since the dawn of time, a familiar epic of good v evil has played out over and over throughout the annals of human history. Neither ideal can exist alone, so it comes as little surprise that this hallowed story hath spilleth over into the frothy universe of memery. Hero and Villan alike, these dichotic nemesi are each legends in their own right, and have been cemented into the collective conscious for sometime now. But we ambitious little imps are going to try and look at the broader human struggle in play. So it is my honor to present you: Scumbag Steve VS Good Guy Greg.

The Meming of Life – Sudden Clarity Clarence

Sudden Clarity Clarence

Not to be confused with last week’s insta-classic, Conspiracy Keanu, our lil’ buddy Clarence has been creating quite the stir as of late on the interwebs with his moments of pristine clarity. While older brother Keanu is much more philosophical in nature and more paranoid, Sudden Clarity Clarence is a bit of a coming of age story. A young man thrust into the cold cruel world, forced to draw his own conclusions about life, love, and happiness.

The Meming of Life: Conspiracy Keanu

Conspiracy Keanu

No one is better equipped to deal with snares and trappings of an infinitely complex world than Conspiracy Keanu. Since September of last year, he has been waging a war of truth against the cloak and dagger illuminati, exposing their secrets through his mind-bending theories. Beware: once you have seen into the mind of a genius, there is no return to normality. So sign your waivers, and check out the top 5 after the jump.

The Meming of Life: Skateboarding Professor

skateboarding professor

Being a total sucka for memes, I thought I would introduce a new series celebrating popular memes as they pop, or just whenever I feel like talking about them. Aside from the fact that memes are google gold, my profound fascination goes much deeper than the cheap thrills of internet popularism. I think there is some intangible esoteric allure that great memes possess.
