This image was the only one I got of Marcin in this round of GOG.com's stellar PR performances.

Let the memeification begin.

Looks like we're off to a good start.
A nonsense

Someone with mad photoshop skeelz should put newsreels around him with the headline: "EA found shipwrecked on Free shore, managed to swim away from S.S. DRM wreckage" or something like that.

It seems to be working now.
What exactly is a 'meme'?

What I'm getting from Wiki is that it's a catchy witicism that people pick up and spread around such as terms like "Pimped" back in the 90's.

It looks as if people think this is a new discovery but this type of influence has been going on forever, hence why people get upset over foul language because they're afraid it will spread.

I'm looking at these images and sayings, however and none of them really make sense, or are even memorable on a subliminal basis.

I'm also familiar with esoteric terms or statements that indirectly refer to underground religious ideas but these don't fit into that category either.

So what is it that makes these any different from what everyone has already known for centuries?

We had a Marcin meme contest last year, based upon a thread started by Vagabond.

Ah, I see.

I was just curious - over the past several years I've been hearing the term 'meme' a lot and I thought it was something new.

But I used to draw a lot and years ago I came to realize that my drawings, no matter how original I thought they were, were enhanced recalls of things that I previously saw by other artists and had forgotten that I saw and then tossed into my own salad mixture.

It's similar to the religious idea affect were religious ideas from the sixties, not commonly mentioned often or studied by very many people are referenced in song lyrics and movies. A person whom has never read up on the full religious idea can accidentally reconstruct it through piecing together all the references and then believing it their own original idea.

A long time ago I was going to start authoring novels because I thought that I had some original material only to find, after presenting my original ideas to others, that I was just putting together and recalling ideas that have been around for decades.

So... You're looking for some mid-XXth century literature on aesthetics or are you just saying ;P ?
