  • 08/05/14--11:56: Deep Into YouTube
  • About

    “Deep Into YouTube” is an expression used to describe a variety of obscure video content found on YouTube that are marked by amateur production value and incoherent narrative, in a somewhat similar vein to the content said to be hosted in the “weird part” of the video-sharing community. However, these videos from the so-called “depth of YouTube” are mainly distinguished from the former by their relatively low view counts and lack of exposure in the social media.

    Origin

    The exact origin of the phrase “deep into YouTube” is unclear. The earliest known use of the expression in the context of bizarre content found on the video-sharing site was posted on February 5th, 2010 by Student Pilot Forums[2] member AirVenture, who commented about searching “deep into YouTube” to find a video of a woman regurgitating into a paper bag while flying in a jet airplane.

    Precursor

    “I’m in that weird part of YouTube” is an expression used in response to a video post that may be deemed disturbing or eccentric in content. Commonly seen in the comments section of YouTube, the phrase first surfaced in Google’s YouTube Help forum as early as 2009.

    Spread

    On April 19th, 2012, Facepunch Forums[5] member Fkpuz posted a playlist[5] of bizarre fetish videos, claiming he “searched deep into YouTube” to discover them.



    On March 25th, 2013, the /r/deepintoyoutube[1] subreddit was created for submissions of YouTube videos with less than 200,000 views that had been uploaded at least five months prior. In the first two years, the subreddit gained over 60,500 subscribers.

    Scrabble is an American board game in which players attempt to create words using only the wooden letter pieces left on the board by other players and the seven wooden letters they have pulled at random.

    History

    Scrabble[1] was first invented in 1931 by Alfred Mosher Butts who worked in New York as an architect, though the game received an official trademark 17 years later. The game was named by James Brunot who also created the first Scrabble factory. Hasbro gained ownership of the game in the 1980s, and in 1994 the game created two separate collections of eligible words for the game, one for schools and one for tournaments.

    Additions to Scrabble Dictionary

    On August 6th, 2014, Scrabble added a large collection of 5,000 slang words[6] to its official dictionary. Among the words added was one chosen by Scrabble fans: geocache. Other additions include bling and emo.[12] The addition of the new words were covered by many sites on August 5th, including New York Daily News[9], ABC News[10] and The Daily Mail.[11]

    Game Play

    To play,[2] two to four players each pull seven wooden tiles each printed with a letter and a amount of points awarded for the successful use of that letter. To begin the game the first player must create a word starting from the square in the center of the board. The next player must build a word off that first word, using one letter and building horizontally or adding a few letters vertically to utilize the entire vertical word. This pattern continues, with each player taking the same amount of tiles they set down from the letter bag. This continues until there are no more tiles, or so few tiles the players can not create any more new words with the tiles they are left with. They then count the points, which are added from the values printed on the letter tiles which can be aided by placing them on double letter score, double word score, triple letter score, and triple word score spaces on the board. If a player has any remaining tiles when the game ends, the value of those tiles are deducted from their total to determine their final score.

    Online Presence

    As of August 2014, Scrabble’s official Facebook page[3] has gained over 3.9 million likes.

    Fandom

    As of August 2014, DeviantArt[4] has over 8,000 pieces of fan art tagged Scrabble. Tumblr blogs dedicated to the game include isthatascrabbleword[5] which features unusual words eligible for Scrabble games and scrabble15[7] which features fifteen letter words eligible for Scrabble games.
