Post The End of Culture
So there was a trailer before The Green Hornet for a movie called "Gnomio and Juliet." Afterward I was (mostly) joking around about it with a friend of mine and I called it "the end of culture" and then we went back and forth about how it would be funny to add gnomes to other s**t, "Look Gnomerward Angel" "Double Gnome Seven: The Quantgnome of Solace" stuff like that. Then I made a poster for "The Social Gnomework" because it was a good excuse to blow off work. Well, an excuse anyway. And now this very thin little joke has become my four hundredth blog.

I bring it up here because I've decided the thing will be much funnier if lots of people play along, and I thought some of you might have fun doing it. And I know many of you are very funny and talented with them computer-machines.

Basically the game is this: Photoshop a gnome into an existing piece of art. A movie, a book, a comic, whatever. And that's it.

I expect little to no polish to these things and, in truth, a quick and dirty shop is probably funnier than a really refined one. But if you feel like actually working hard, that's cool, too.

So...yeah. If anyone would like to play along, then awesome. I look forward to seeing them. You can submit your stuff directly through the site, email it to me or post it here. Whatevs.

And if no one wants to play, fair enough.

The blog lives here: http://theendofculture.tumblr.com/

I'm gonna Photoshop one into Half-Life 2 Episode 2 and Left 4 Dead 2.

Also, I have one serious (well, you know what I mean) that I might try later. Some of the ones up there are pretty funny.

This is great!
I'm no good at arty farty stuff so I quickly made this in paint just for fun.

I call it, The Gnoma Lisa!

Edit: Like I said, no good at art. Just realised I forgot to trim the edge of the image D:

I was joking about the ones I mentioned, E. HL2:E2 and L4D2 already have a gnome in them.

Oh. Well now I feel silly. I'ma go weep now.

I never played L4D2, but I played a lot of the first one and when you mentioned it I got some pretty funny pictures in my head of, like, a garden gnome boomer exploding or something and the title "Left 4 Gnome." Or "Gnome for Dead"

Gnomalisa is great and it's up now. Thanks! Let me know if you want to be credited differently or if you want your name to link to a site or whatever.

I highly recommend people re-visit the blog to see the art Stemage just dropped on the world. I think I actually cooed while loling when I saw it.

Yeah, when I first saw an ad for this movie, I was sorely disappointed in people in general.
