REMEMBER MEme

Instead of tamagatchis, furbies, or pokemon cards, the new craze sweeping the nation are memes.  With all the technological advances you’d think the next big “thing” would be a real life space ship or flying cars that people could own, but hey it’s the little things that bring us joy- I guess in this case they come in the form of a very sarcastic and a little condescending picture on the Internet about issues that are only somewhat funny.  They bring us joy in the moment and help us get through the day, but don’t really do much in my opinion.  Still, people spend their day looking through the same picture (meme) or clip (gif) with a slight variation in text underneath it.  I mean, I’m not judging..whatever helps people get through their boring mundane days I suppose.  But I think this new craze is brought about not just because some of them are actually funny, but because people can relate to them and feel like they are apart of a community when they find others that can also find relevance.  The sense of knowing that someone is going through the same thing as you are or feeling the same way about an issue brings people together and lets them no that they are not alone in what they are going through.  It’s a sense of comfort and bringing people together through some tough times with a laugh and smile on their face.

With that said, I am a little riffed that a Girls meme doesn’t exist on Knowyourmeme.com yet, not going to lie.  Nonetheless, I have found some gifs and memes of our favorite girls to brighten up our day that we can all relate to.

Commonly Creative

Who would’ve thought that not everything on the Internet is copyrighted and images that we take don’t belong to us….  Just kidding nothing besides our inner most being and organs belong to us, and even for that we can’t take all the credit and have to thank our parents for.  So what’s so different from using and taking pictures, images, and videos off of the Internet?  Just because it’s there for us to share, and readily available for us always, doesn’t mean it will always be there for our disposable or that we have the right to, like, post it on our Facebook pages.

The picture I chose to use is the signature “Girls” screen that comes on at the beginning of every episode, as if to tell you “shit’s about to get real, so get your popcorn ready and watch the show.” I never would’ve thought it’d be safe to use but it is here for our enjoyment and use and I am a happy camper about this.

Upon finding the picture, I also wanted to search to see what cool songs and remixes I could find that would also add to my blog.  I was originally looking for a remixed version of “Dancing on My Own” by Robyn, which is one of the iconic songs in “Girls” and is featured on the soundtrack, but I found this cool mashup instead.  Enjoy!

Don’t worry, I’m not being illegal right now- because I would never do such a thing as break the law- but instead, I obtained the picture and remix that add to the aesthetic of my blog from the Creative Commons Search Engine.  They assure users that all their images, videos, and sound files are all copy righted and allowed to be used by the public.  It’s Favoring Fair Use because it is all for a nonprofit educational institution.  So remember next time, think before you link! Make sure everything you use on the Internet is safe!

#GIRLSGoneWild

Hi friends!  If you love hanging out with The Girls- I mean honestly, who wouldn’t?- and you want another place to connect and socialize, look no further!  Your prayers are soon to be answered.  For all you Tweeters out there, you can go on and link up with each other using the hashtags #GIRLSGoneWild or #GirlsofGIRLS which would also be helping me promote my blog!  You guys can go on there and talk to each other about the latest episodes or just anything you have to say related to the blog or any of the girls.  Or for you creeps you can just join in or stalk from afar, whatever have you.  These tags could also work in the Instagram world where you can link pics with your tags to add a more creative flare.

It’s a tough world out there when you’re just a little blog trying to be the voice of the generation, or err, a blog of a generation, at least.  Thanks so much for the support!  Hope you have as much fun hanging out as we do!
