The album Straight Outta Compton was a massive success that helped revolutionize hip-hop back in 1988. Now a movie based on the lives of artists N.W.A., also titled Straight Outta Compton, is about to be released. What does any of this have to do with sci-fi, fantasy or any of the other stuff usually covered by Blastr? The answer: geeky memes.

To promote the film, the web site Straight Outta Somewhere lets Internet-ers add their own location and image to the “Straight Outta Compton” logo. Ostensibly, it's so that you can rep your home town/neighborhood/kingdom/planet, but this being the Internet, it wasn't long before people started putting a humorous spin on things. Of course, the geek world has been no exception, as you'll see in the gallery below.

And the best photos have little to do with a real-world location. You’ll see. Let us know your favorites in the comments.
