That little green men meme generated by the major news media was quite a nifty trick. Reporting it in such a tongue and cheek manner. Denigrating the serious nature of such a subject. Insulting the general populous by targeting a fringe group of conspiracy theorists. Using the UFO imagery to poke fun. Getting the crazies all riled up to spout inane arguments forward. Further distracting from the seriousness of the Generals speech to his men. 
 
I suppose the above is a bit off topic, but, words do create forms of imagery. Little green men can symbolize lots of things.

Thank you for the warning on that. Very considerate.

Some of those old school animation artists really new what they were doing. This example of levitation shows exactly how that particular trick is done.

Animators know how easy it is to insert a quick frame for sublimals!

the language of spam

 

That's a good point. The jibber jabber on the internet.

It’s the bane of every blogger. Comment spam, blog spam…whatever you want to call it, has reached epidemic proportions. Bloggers from all backgrounds set aside time to sift through the steady stream of pseudo-comments that sit waiting for ‘approval’.

"Maybe most importantly, GIFs bring an enhanced ability to empathise. Empathy is deeply lacking in many internet cultures (as evidenced by the existence of hideous YouTube comments, for instance). GIFs trigger those primal mirror neurons that remind us there is a human on the other side of the connection."
 
"Emotions are tricky -- and by no means a trivial (or even possible) thing to quantify. We seek to use emoticons that represent a 'core' or 'basic' emotion so we can understand the atomistic elements of what a gif is conveying...

Before you brush off the use of emojis and gifs in professional situations, think about how often you read body language and emotions when communicating in-person. Have you ever received an email and not known how to read or understand the tone of it? We’ve all been there before. Without facial expressions, intonations, and general body language, we’re left to interpret the neutrality, or lack thereof, in the intentions behind the words.

As always, the discussion with Neil is very wide ranging. He discuss how political and societal agendas are marketed and sold through all forms of media, especially social media, in order to either fabricate consensus or to create division.
