Small fist, BIG PUNCH! (One Sentence Meme Bombs)
« on: May 04, 2008, 09:33:35 am »
So I combed through all 90 pages of the "One Sentence Memebombs" thread and grabbed everything that jumped out at me. Then I paired it with the dingbat set created by Synaptyx, The Other Anonymous, and possibly others.

The idea behind the layout is basically that most of you are broke-ass motherfuckers who can't afford shit. Hence the small (read: economical use of space) layout. You don't need to print the second page as a color document to get the full effect of the Homeland Security seal, so go ahead and print as a black and white, it should be fine.

So there are two main ways to utilize this PDF (for both of them, using a laser printer is highly recommended):
  • 1 — Go to some office supply type store and find a product that is called "Full sheet labels," which is essentially an 8.5 x 11 inch sticker. You'll probably have to buy about 25 of them, but don't worry, that will equal about 3,000 stickers if you print 13 pages of the first page and 12 pages of the second page of this PDF. The only catch is that you'll have to cut each one out — but if you have a metal ruler and an exacto knife this will be no problem. If you have to use some scissors they'll just be nice and funky.
  • 2 — Print this out on regular paper, preferably something colorful. Then you'll have to cut 'em out, get some clear packing tape and tape these suckers up.

NOTE: Clicking either image takes you to a PDF containing both pages.



8.5 x 11 May contain trace amounts of US-centric slogans.




A4 Guaranteed free of US-centric slogans (same as the "Zipple Interests" version posted later in this thread).

Hurrah!

For those of us who aren't brokeass motherfuckers, any chance of a version formatted for pre-cut sticker/label sheets?

AHHHH I'M BEING CRUSHED UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THESE GIANT MITTENS I WAS TRYING TO GIVE YOU

great work, man. Will definitely get right on distributing these. Full page stickers is a good idea. Good choice of dingbats, too.


we should get this stuff on the wiki (on the Meme Bomb, and also the postergasm page)

anyone wanna step up to do that?

thank you Net, i'm a broke-ass mofo :(

if you see any chance to do an A4 version for us eurofags that would be nice, but it's not really a big deal cause printing a letter-size PDF will just produce a bit of extra margin somewhere.

AHHHH I'M BEING CRUSHED UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THESE GIANT MITTENS I WAS TRYING TO GIVE YOU

these?

:thanks:

It took a good 8 hours to comb through all 90 pages, find the best dingbats, and then lay it all out.

That dingbat set (thanks to Syn, TOA, and possibly others) is located here if anybody wants to play with 'em.

Also, the Meme Bomb wiki and POSTERGASM wiki have been updated.

Also, I'll see what I can do for you eurofags. You guys probably wouldn't want the Homeland Security Caution stickers then?

I just woke up from my senior prom last night, I haven't finished my first cup of coffee, and I'm already having an excellent day because of this thread.

These are brilliant, Net.

An A4 version.

I'm pleased to hear that Mr. Cainad.

no you can leave those one out, and also the following:

- Hot Topic (not as big here / other / local chains)
- "catch more flies with honey" (not a very well-known phrase among dutch)
- "politicians dont care make them care" (anarchist/punk/squatter scum kids scribble this sort of thing on walls already)
- "life is sacred until 18-vote no on abortion yes on cannon fodder" (abortion is not really an issue here, nor are "the troops")

on the other hand, i see you've made the A4 version already, so never mind :)

They're quite easy to change, 000.

Is there a dutch mindfuck that I could put in there instead?

Or more of a particular one that you dig instead of the ones I'll be omitting?

If you don't get too specifically Dutch I'd be obliged, the minute I have a printer I'm plastering Germany with these beauts.
I'd be glad for a higher proportion of "freedom is a verb". I like that one a lot and think it would be good here.
Unless stated otherwise, feel free to copy or reproduce any text I post anywhere and any way you like. I will never throw a hissy-fit over it, promise.

Ok. Hold on a moment.

not from the top of my head, but that's a good idea i keep forgetting, i should go through my own selected list
of decent memebombs (http://www.shorttext.com/ep45b) and see which ones can be translated properly to Dutch.

Quote
Or more of a particular one that you dig instead of the ones I'll be omitting?

going through my list, ones that i like a lot:

- Kill Your Idols.
- those who don't queston their own beliefs probably shouldn't have any
- HIMEOBS (ok not in the memebomb list, but i could use some HIMEOBS stickers)
- We care about your saftey as much as you care about our profit margin. -The Mgt
- It's only due to modern technology that you can be as pleasingly plump as you are.
- Fear of consequence doesn't equal a lack of choice (i dont even know if i agree with this, but it's a good one to make ppl STOP!THINK!)
- fuck your brand of individuality.
- CONFUSE EVERYONE
- what is stopping you from doing something so cool that it renders you IMMORTAL?
- No, you're not a rebel.
(more coming, but i'm gonna hit post now)

another thing is, there's this Dutch organisation called "Loesje" (see http://www.loesje.org/ -- the site is in english) which is basically about printing posters with memebombs on em and pasting them at places. the only thing is that ours seem better, Loesje is a bit between in the middle of the old pineal fnord happiness and our current cynism. its messages are politically laden, but do not always hit the point (in favour of making a pun, or just an easy shot) and others are kinda poetic "seize the day" kind of things.
it beats commercial advertising or blind walls, though. but our meme bombs are a bit more confronting, Loesje believes in leftist ideals, and make the average lefty-hippie nod, while our memebombs are targeted to shake up everybody, i picked part of the above list not just because i agree with them, but also because they still present me with a mirror, of sorts.

If you don't get too specifically Dutch I'd be obliged, the minute I have a printer I'm plastering Germany with these beauts.
I'd be glad for a higher proportion of "freedom is a verb". I like that one a lot and think it would be good here.

i think "freedom is a verb" would only be picked up by people interested in linguistics and such, over here.

as you can see from my selection, i picked a lot of the annoy/disappoint/shake up the left/hippies style texts, cause for all the slogans and stuff you see stickered and scrawled, most of them are of the socialist/anarchist/lefty sort. (oh and a few of the "Geert Wilders" style intolerance/hatred/racism things pop up from time to time, but they get defaced within no time, i don't need to bother with that)
