Sometimes I feel a need to automate some meme generation. Luckily I found this incredibly helpful blogpost from jackmeme. http://www.jackmeme.com/blog.php?id=1
I used it as inspiration and did something similar in Perl. Of course the Imagemagick perl-magick reference was invaluable. http://www.imagemagick.org/script/perl-magick.php
The first thing I thought of with automated meme generation? The Weather! See my previous post about getting data from the Weather Underground API using Perl
Inspired by http://thefuckingweather.com/, I decided I want my daily forecast in meme form. The first weather-related meme I think of is Ollie Williams.
But that doesn’t really fit with the meme. Change fucking to motherfucking and Samuel L Jackson is PERFECT!
Smoosh those memes together and I’ve got my morning weather!
I found another source of amusement while playing with generating image macros. There is a Pyborg bot in one of the IRC channels I frequent. “She” says some pretty funny stuff, so we keep a quote list. Of course this is ripe for meme-ifying.
