Michael Branson Smith’s suggestion of a yam meme begins to take shape in this idea, that we could put a yam into a movie still and still have it…well, fit.

I created it with Gimp, taking a still from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1944 file Lifeboat and putting the cast in a yam instead of a lifeboat. I am not a graphics person, and the yam is not quite as sharp as I would like it to be, but it’s pretty much like I saw it in my head.

No assignment number…yet.

    This might be the meme that finally pushes ds106 into the mainstream. I love what you’ve pulled off here!! Pretty awesome for a self-confessed “not a graphics person” I’d say.What is most exciting to me are the endless possibilities of the Yam / Movie mashup thing. I think i’m going to have to do Driving Miss Yamsy as quick as I can. Or maybe the Yam who would be king.

    I love the idea that you ‘saw this in your head’ first. That is what I hope to get from ds106.
