ds106: Visual Assignment: Troll Quotes

Visual Assignment 25 brief

Find an image of a well known figure, add to it a famous quote by someone related in some way to the figure in the image and then attribute the quote to a third, related figure. From the official site: How It Works

  1. Get a picture of someone people idolize. Obi Wan Kenobi, Barack Obama, Captain Kirk — any beloved public figure will do.
  2. Slap on a famous quotation from a similar character from a different book or movie. Pick something close enough that a non-fan might legitimately confuse them. If you’re using Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, for example, you’ll probably want to grab a quote from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Babylon 5 or Battlestar Galactica.
  3. Attribute the quotation to a third character, from yet a third universe. This way, nothing about your image is correct, and you’re trolling fans of all three characters at once.

My Troll Quote

I attempted to troll with a film still from Aliens, a quote from the stockroom scene in The Matrix, and then attributed it all to Dr Dave Bowman from 2001: A Space Odyssey. I’m not sure anyone would respond to my troll. I usually don’t feed trolls.

    • Hey thanks Alan!
      Thinking about it, there’s quite a difference between how guns are used in both films. In Aliens guns and ammunition are in scarce supply and are used sparingly and somewhat desperately. In The Matrix the supply of guns and ammunition is neverending.

  1. WHAT DO YOU CALL THIS RUBBISH? HOW DARE YOU TARNISH THE NAME OF ELLEN RIPLEY!!!1 RIPLEY MEANS SO MUCH TO ME. WHAT YOU’VE DONE CAN NEVER BE FORGIVEN. HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST THAT RIPLEY ACTIVELY TOOK UP ARMS AGAINST THE ALIENS. ANY TRUE FAN OF ALIENS WOULD KNOW THAT SHE WAS A RELUCTANT SOLDIER. SHE ONLY TOOK UP ARMS TO PROTECT NEWT!!!!!!1
    UNBELIEVABLE. I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY THAT YOU’VE UPSET A MILLION ALIENS FANS ON THE INTERNETZ.
