Stranger Things posters – Meme Monday

To go back to the basic concept of a meme, it’s a piece of culture that carries on and transmits between people. It’s the cultural idea of a gene (and thus has the same vowel sound as gene). With that in mind, NetFlix with Stranger Things has just tapped into the collective consciousnesses of the Internet and hit with some solid nostalgia.

Rather than copy in a bunch of images, I think this Twitter Moment does a nice job of it, as it also shows people presenting the poster that the homage is based on. Enjoy!

The Man. The Myth. The Meme. Ron Swanson.

Holly and I had this video recommended on YouTube, and we were not disappointed (warning: 32 excellent minutes).

While Ron Swanson might be an exaggerated character, he’s one of a type you don’t see often in media: a consistent libertarian. It’s just not a caricature that gets portrayed often, or well. Ron Swanson was so successful because he succeeded at just that.

A ton of his lines (and excellent camera-stare facial expressions) have been turned into memes, as well as a lot of memes of course superimposed over him. Those are of varying quality. The thing is, you don’t really need to add a lot to Ron Swanson: they’ve really already done the work for us.

What are your favorite Ron Swanson moments? And have they been turned into memes? Let us know!
