  • 11/23/14--11:04: #YaMeCansé / #estoycansado
  • Overview

    #YaMeCanse is an ongoing social media protest against the Mexican government’s uninspired handling of the mass kidnapping of 43 male students at the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers’ College of Ayotzinapa in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico. Since the mysterious disappearance of the students in late September 2014, the official investigation has concluded that the students had traveled to Iguala to participate in an anti-government protest, during which they were taken into the custody of local police and subsequently handed over to the local crime syndicate named Guerreros Unidos (“United Warriors”).

    Background

    According to the findings of the official investigation, on September 26th, 2014, 43 male students from the Teacher’s College of Ayotzinapa traveled to Iguala to take part in a protest against what they considered to be discriminatory hiring and funding practices by the Mexican government. During the journey, local police intercepted them and a confrontation ensued. Details of what happened during and after the confrontation remain unclear, but the official investigation concluded that once the students were in custody, they were handed over to the local Guerreros Unidos (“United Warriors”) crime syndicate and presumably killed.[2]



    “Alive they were taken away … Alive we want them [back]. Ayotzinapa lives, the struggle goes on.”

    Notable Developments

    #YaMeCansé / #Estoycansado

    The hashtag originated from a response given by Jesus Murillo Karam, Mexico’s attorney general, at a press conference held on November 7th, 2014 about the latest development on the case[1], during which he was quoted as saying “Ya Me Cansé” (“I’ve had enough” in English) in an attempt to evade questions from the journalists (shown below). Karam’s response instantly sparked outrage among the protesters and college students across the country.

  • 11/23/14--18:03: Devo
  • Work in progress, feel free to request editorship

    About

    Devo is a post-punk/new wave band hailing from Ohio. Their bizarre aesthetic and bold fashion have had a cultural impact, and are oft parodied in media.

    Origin

    Devo were formed in 1972 in Kent, Ohio by brothers Gerald V. and Bob Casale. The idea of “de-evolution” was developed from some of the members witnessing the infamous “Kent State Shootings”. Their most consistent line-up were Gerald V. Casale, Bob Casale, Mark Mothersbaugh, Bob Mothersbaugh and Alan Myers between 1974 to 1986.

    Spread

    Devo were active from 1973 to 1991, and 1995 to present. Devo released their debut album Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! in 1978, which gained critical acclaim. However, their mainstream breakthrough was with their hit single “Whip It” from the album Freedom of Choice (1980), reaching #14 in the Billboard charts that year.

    Impact

    Devo made a large impact on the New Wave music scene at the time, particularly with the art-punk and post-punk approach in the first album which features many of their iconic songs such as “Mongoloid”, “Jocko Homo” and “Space Junk”. Many bands, such as Nirvana, Talking Heads, Duran Duran and Soundgarden citing them as major influences. Devo also has a large fanbase online, with many concepts from them being parodied and brought up in music discussion.

    Memes

    “Are We Not Men?”

    The phrase “Are We Not Men?” comes from the 1896 book " he Island of Doctor Moreau", and Devo has used it in their anthem “Jocko Homo” from their debut album to represent de-evolution. This phrase has been used as a phrase used by fans as Devo’s calling card.

    Yellow Suits


    The Yellow Suits were worn by Devo from 1977 to 1979, and have seen a comeback in recent years. They were most famously used in the music video for their cover of “(I Can’t Get Me No) Satisfaction” in 1978, which saw heavy rotation during the early years of MTV.

    Energy Domes


    The now infamous headwear was used by Devo for their “Freedom Of Choice” album in 1980, and is possibly their most infamous aspect. The origin is somewhat shrouded in mystery, but Devo claims that they are used to redirect energy lost from the head to the rest of the body.

    “Whip It”


    Whip It was Devo’s calling card back in 1980, and is considered their commercial breakthrough. Peaking at #14 in the Billboard charts in 1980, the single is often used in soundtracks and when parodying “The 80’s”.

  • 11/26/14--04:20: 2-4-11 of Love
  • About

    2-4-11 of Love” (Japanese: 恋の2-4-11, Koi no Two-Four-Eleven), also tranlated as “Love is 2-4-11”, is a fanmade “idol” song for Naka[1], a fleet girl from Japanese online card game Kantai Collection (KanColle). This song inspired by an illustration for the fleet’s idol had earned a huge popularity on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) in late 2013, and even got the official approval.

    Origin

    This energetic fleet girl proclaiming herself as “Naka-chan the fleet’s idol” is well-known for her unique personality like a typical Japanese idol[2], which nature comes from the similarity between her ship number “48” and Japanese idol group AKB48.[3] On the other hand, she is also known for a dishonorable title “The dismantling idol” (解体のアイドル, Kaitai no idol) which comes from a pun for “The fleet’s idol” (艦隊のアイドル, Kantai no idol) as well as a common experience among the game players that they dismantle her with disappointment because her high appearance rate makes her often appear on when they want to get or construct other rare ship girls. The iconic number representing her, “2-4-11”, stands for the numbers of resources which can get from her dismantlement (2 fuels, 4 Bullets and 11 Steels).



    The real sense of the word “2-4-11”

    Against a backdrop of this Naka’s funny but slightly unhappy circumstances, a parody illustration of she singing an imaginary song named “2-4-11 of Love” at a Karaoke box was drawn for an official fan book for KanColle by an illustrator kinnotama (きんのたま), and it was uploaded to his pages in pixiv[4] and Nico Nico Seiga[5] on September 26th, 2013.



    “The next tune! 2-4-11 of Love☆”

    Spread

    Inspired by this illustration and the catchy song name, a Japanese amateur composer Gun-SEKI created a song in this name actually, which features the 2-4-11 beats in typical Japanese idol song style. His “2-4-11 of Love” song was posted its short version to NND on October 4th[6], and then its full-version on 11th of that month[7] to celebrate that KanColle broke the 500,000 user mark (Shown below, left). The latter music video soon got a huge popularity and a large fanbase on that Japanese video hub site. It had reached to 1 million page views in November 2014, and many hundreds of dancing covers, singing covers and other fan works had been created till that point.[8] Additionally, the “wotagei”[9] chants and lightstick calls dedicated to the song were prepared (Shown below, right). The admirals had learned it for some day.

  • 11/27/14--09:34: Good Knee High Socks Day
  • Overview

    On the Japanese web, November 28th is known as the Good Knee High Socks Day (Japanese: いいニーハイの日, Ii Nīhai no Hi), an unofficial anniversary day for over-knee socks, usually called “Knee High” (ニーハイ). Since 2013, it has been an annual event among Japanese Twitter users to upload “Knee-High” photos, illustrations or selfies with a hashtag.

    Background

    In Japan, there are many unofficial but widely-known anniversary days designated by companies, organizations, industrial groups or persons for their promoting/awareness campaigns.[1] And many of them enacted by a simple wordplay of dates numbers, which manner comes from a Japanese language’s characteristic that Kanji characters including numbers usually have multiple pronunciations. Additionally, “wordplay” anniversary days tends to be designated in November because “11” can be read as “I(1)I(1)” which is meaning of “Good”, “Nice” or “Happy”.

    Examples:

    • 3/10: “Suger Day” → 3[Sa] + 10[Tou] = Suger
    • 3/19: “Music Day” → 3[Myū] + 1[(Z)i] + 9[Ku] = Music
    • 5/30: “No Garbage Day” → 5[Go] + 3[Mi] = Garbage & Zero(0)
    • 6/9: “Rock (Music) Day” → 6[Ro] + 9[Ku] = Rock
    • 8/7: “Nose Day” → 8[Ha] + 7[Na] = Nose]
    • 10/2: “Tohu Day” → 10[Tou] + 2[Fu]
    • 11/22: “Good Married Couple Day” → 1[I] + 1[I] = Good & 2[Fū] + 2[Fu] = Married Couple
    • The 29th of each month: “Meat Day” → 2[Ni] + 9[Ku] = Meat

    In the same manner, Good Knee-High Socks Day is desinated on November 28th since the numbers can be read as “1[I] + 1[I] + 2[Nī] + 8[Ha(i)]” which is meaning of “Good Knee-Highs”.

    Meanwhile, the dawn of this anniversary day hadn’t came till late 2000s because it inherited a famous moe concept “Zettai ryōiki”[2], or a fetish for the area of bare skin in the gap between over-knee socks and a miniskirt, that was established in the otaku culture in first half of 2000s.

    Development

    In the early days, “Good Knee-High Socks Day” was circulating on the Japanese web as a minor joke. It took off as an actual anniversary day associated with user activities by the help of the social networks after entering 2010s. At first, Japanese illustrators community pixiv users began posting illustrations under the tag “Good Knee-High Socks Day” on this day of 2011. The amount of illustrations is increasing yearly.[3] On the day of the following year, a few of female Twitter users began posting their own “Knee-Highs” selfies or cosplay photos with the hastag “#GoodKneeHighSocksDay” (#いいニーハイの日).[4] In that year, this online event was reported by a gossip web news site for the first time.[5] And, the explosive increase of the photos on the day of 2013 finally established itself as a real anniversary day for many Japanese internet users.[6][7]

    Since then, A flood of Knee high photos swallows up the social web in Good Knee High Socks Day in every year.

    About

    That’s Pretty Brutal, alternatively Metal as Fuck, is a popular online expression that is used to denote approval of something that has been deemed “extreme” by comparing it to heavy metal music, or by evoking heavy metal themes. It is employed both legitimately, in a similar manner to Me Gusta, and sarcastically.

    Origin

    Heavy metal, a genre of rock music, rose to prominence in the 1970s. Featuring aggressive lyrics, instrumentals, and aesthetics, it quickly gained notoriety for being an “extreme” musical genre, a reputation which has remained to the present day. Fans of the metal genre are generally referred to as “metalheads”.[3]

    In August 2006, the animated television series Metalocalypse premiered on Adult Swim. Intended to be both a parody and a celebration of heavy metal culture, it features larger-than-life stereotypes of metalheads and exaggerated dark humor.[1] The original variation of the meme, quoted as “that’s pretty brutal”, is a catchphrase of the character Nathan Explosion, the frontman of the fictional band Dethklok.



    Spread

    On November 26th, 2012, LA Weekly published a blog post titled “How to Determine if Something Is Metal as Fuck”, in which the post’s author provided a chart that distinguishes between perceived metal and non-metal themes in a satirical tone.[2]



    On November 6th, 2013, Buzzfeed published an article titled “The 26 Most Metal Things That Have Ever Happened”, showcasing several displays of heavy metal themes.[4]

  • 11/29/14--07:14: Crossguard Lightsaber
  • About:

    This is based off the controversy behind the lightsaber held by the hooded figure in the newly released Star Wars teaser trailer. The first mention of the lightsaber is in a website article by Voc[1].

    “While we don’t get to see series newcomer Lupita Nyong’o or the series’ legendary stars like Harrison Ford, we do get to see
    quick shots of spacecraft zipping around the galaxy, John Boyega in a storm trooper uniform, a cute robot, and this take-your-breath-away moment of a broadsword-like lightsaber.”

    T.C. Sottek, an editor of ‘the Verge’, has criticised the lightsaber in his twitter page, going as far as suggesting his own designs to JJ Abrams.

    Despite controversy, the Cross Guard lightsaber has appeared in the Star Wars franchise before[2].

    History

    The idea for a film adaptation for Roald Dahl’s 1964 children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory came when Mel Stuart’s then 10-year-old daughter read the book and asked her father to make it into a film with producer David L.

    Reception

    Film review website Rotten Tomatoes gave the film an 89% with the consensus stating “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is strange yet comforting, full of narrative detours that don’t always work but express the film’s uniqueness.”[1] The film currently holds a 7.8/10 rating from 104,055 users on the user generated film review website the Internet Movie Database (IMDB).[2]

    Impact

    Wonkadotcom, a fansite dedicated to the film containing quotes, music lyrics, and a transcript of the film, has been online as early as February 1 2001.[3] On April 29, 2004 YTMND user Kess created a site containing a black and white portrait of Gene Wilder as Wonka and an audio clip of Wonka loudly proclaiming So you get NOTHING! You LOSE! Good DAY sir.[4] On April 18, 2005 an entry for Wonka Wash was created on Urban Dictionary. [5]
