  • About

    “Selfie Stick” is a term for a monopod device that is used to support a mobile device or camera to take a “selfie” photograph from an extended distance.

    Origin

    Monopods[2] were initially used to provide support for cameras, binoculars, firearms and variety of other objects. The earliest known use of a monopod to take a selfie photograph was sent to the BBC News[3] by Whitehaven, England resident Alan Cleaver, showing his grandfather taking a photo with his grandmother with a extended pole (shown below).

  • 12/30/14--12:32: Le Wrong Generation
  • About

    Le Wrong Generation, and related phrases such as Only 90s Kids Will Get This, is an online term used to describe the behavior of certain people who nostalgically believe that things in the past used to be significantly better than they are today. The phrase is most frequently utilized to satirize people who hold reactionary attitudes towards popular music or culture.

    Origin

    The term “Born in the wrong generation” was used by internet people, normally teens, as a way to express their disdain for today’s popular culture, and love for things of the past, especially music. The term received criticism for its perceived narrow-mindedness and oversimplification of the past, and was quickly parodied on sites such 4chan’s /mu/ board and satirical subreddits.



    Spread

    The term was heavily used on /mu/, especially on cringe threads, to poke fun at posts by people who believed that the music of the past was objectively superior.

    The /mu/ supported subreddit r/lewronggeneration[1] was created to compile images characterized by this behavior. It is described as “satirically mocking those people who, blinded by their own nostalgia, believe certain things in the past to be unequivocally better than today”. Such behavior is referred to with the slang term “defening” by users of the subreddit.

  • 12/31/14--09:07: Leelah Alcorn's Suicide
  • About

    Leelah Alcorn’s Suicide refers to the suicide of transgender teenager Leelah Alcorn, born Josh Alcorn, who committed suicide by stepping into traffic on December 21, 2014 and left a suicide note on her tumblr queue which was published one day after her death. She was hit by a tractor trailer on Interstate 71, 4 miles from her Ohio home.[1]

    The Suicide Note

    The suicide note[2] attributed the reasons behind her depression and eventual suicide to the rejection from her family who, according to Leelah “reacted extremely negatively, telling me that it was a phase, that I would never truly be a girl, that God doesn’t make mistakes, that I am wrong,” took her to Christian therapists who told her “that I was selfish and wrong and that I should look to God for help.” After being isolated by her parents from her peers for 5 months, she began to have suicidal thoughts. The note ends with a plea for her property to be sold and her money to be put to “trans civil rights and support groups,” and for her death to mean something. The post gained several hundred thousand notes on tumblr.

    Online Reaction

    News of Leelah’s death spread quickly on tumblr and twitter garnering solemn sympathy and outrage, with transgender activists such as Laverne Cox, Andre Pejic, Janet Mock and indy video game developer Brianna Wu[3] commenting, and posts about the circumstances of her suicide gaining upwards of 200 thousand notes.

    Transgender activist and writer Janet Mock, had her tweet widely shared on twitter, including being retweeted by Laverne Cox, actress from “Orange is the New Black” and transgender activist.

    The story was picked up by several news outlets including Time[4], ABC news[5], The Daily Mail[6], Buzzfeed[7], USA Today[8], the Mirror[9], International Buisness Times[10], and Cincinnati.com[11].

    “Rest in Power”

    Rest in power is a phrase that’s been associated with support for Leelah and her request that her death matter. Attributed to a tweet made by twitter user “Lionesse” it was mentioned in an article by the Washington Post[12] and has been adopted by many of the supporters and grievers since.

    #RealLiveTransAdult

    #RealLiveTransAdult is a hashtag started in the wake of Leelah Alcorn’s suicide for transgender adults to share their stories and encourage younger transgender people. The phenomena was mentioned in an article by NBC news[13].

    Change.org Petition

    On December 30th a Change.org petition was started by the “Transgender Human Rights Institute” calling on President Obama and the US Congress to pass a law “to immediately seek a pathway for banning the practice known as ‘transgender conversion therapy’” in order to protect transgender youth, and that they name it “the Leelah Alcorn Law.”[14]

    The petition gained over 100,000 signatures after one day.

    remembering-lazerprincess

    “remembering-lazerprincess”[15] is a tumblr blog dedicated to the remembrance of Leelah Alcorn and the support of transgender causes. It’s url and name are in reference to the Leelah’s username on tumblr and also has the same theme as her original blog.

  • 12/31/14--11:53: Trollpasta
  • About

    “Trollpastas" are humorious stories which mostly are satire to one or more certain creepypastas, creepypasta-clichés or creepypastas in general. They are known for often using bad grammar, badly edited pictures, excessive using of memes and clichés and other (self-)ironic components.

    History

    The first Trollpasta is considered to be “”" />And then a skeleton popped out“. Later, ”http:" />John Wojcik started writing intentionally bad pastas on Creepypasta Wiki to troll the community. Other people followed. Finally, these pastas were moved/recurrected to a spin-off wikia called “Trollpasta Wiki” where not only Trollpastas can be published but also creepypastas like Sonic.exe get moved, which are that bad that they don´t even match the standards of Spinpasta Wiki or even are unintentionally funny.
    On Trollpasta Wiki, there are two monthly awards: The trollpasta of the month and the fail of the month. Sadly, there is a flood of trollpastas which try to be funny just throught purposely being bad.

  • 01/01/15--13:12: Supernatural Anon Hate Panic
  • About

    “The Supernatural Anon Hate Panic” is an event in late December 2014 where various tumblr users claimed there was a raid targeting users in the Supernatural fandom who had depression or social anxiety by perpetrators sending anonymous hate messages. Several popular posts spread through the micro-blogging site describing how the messages had driven users to self-harm and suicide, describing how to retrieve an IP address from anonymous messages, expressing sentiments of support for the alleged victims, and warning others of incoming anonymous hate.

    These allegations were later found to have little basis, and the tag #affectedbyhate, set up to support those affected by the anonymous hate, was flooded with doubt about the existence of a raid.



    The group behind the alleged attack was reported to be from 8chan or 4chan, invoking memories of the 2014 Tumblr-4chan Raids. While a raid was planned by the 8chan board /firstday/ against tumblr, it’s methods didn’t match reports of anonymous hate messages. Users from 4chan’s /b/ board, however, went to omegle under the tag of 4chan and simulated the planning of a raid. There, they passed along the usernames of supernatural themed blogs, and their “triggers.” Tumblr users acting as “spies” screen-capped the exchanges and shared them on tumblr. Other 4chan users spread a rumor that hackers from 4chan had planted a virus called s32 and advised others to delete it from their computers in a ploy to convince them to delete system 32.



    Supernatural Cast Tweets

    Several stars of the tv show “Supernatural” sent messages of support to the fans, including Felicia Day, Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard.


    Change.org Petitions

    Soon after the allegations of a raid, two Change.org petitions were made, one[1] which gained over 11 thousand signatures that asked for yahoo and tumblr to find and press charges against those responsible, and the other[2] only petitioning for tumblr to “Prosecute and investigate anonymous cyberterrorists” and gained nearly 2,500 signatures.

  • 01/02/15--03:26: Bath Bombs
  • About

    Bath Bomb Parodies are a series of multi-panel photographs in which various non-dissolvable objects are placed into bathtubs as if they are “bath bombs,” a type of aromatherapeutic soap product that fizzles once placed under water. The series can be seen as a mockery of an emerging photo fad on Tumblr where people share photographs of the bath water as it changes colors after the placement of a LUSH brand bath bomb.

    Origin

    The “bath bombing” trend first began on Tumblr during the holiday season in December 2014, when many users on the microblogging site began sharing photographs of the color-changing bath fizzies that they had presumably received as gifts. As the photo fad continued to spread throughout the month, it became only a matter of time before people began parodying the phenomenon.



    On December 30th, 2014, Idkitstommy[1] submitted an image of him placing a photoshopped clip art of a cannon ball into a bathtub, followed by an image of a destroyed bathroom featuring the caption “i love my new bath bomb from lush.” Within the first 48 hours, the post accumulated more than 104,700 notes.



    On December 31st, the official account of Tumblr on Twitter linked to Idkitstommy’s parody image with the hashtag #bathbomb and a caption suggesting it may be “the last meme of 2014.”




    Spread

    That same day, a number of additional parody images staged in the same vein emerged on both Twitter and Tumblr under the hashtag #BathBombs. Also on December 31st, the parody photo fad was picked up by BuzzFeed[2] and The Daily Edge.[3]

    Controversy

    The fad also caused a negative reaction from bathing enthusiasts and other groups on sites like Tumblr, who have been claiming it to be misoginist[10][11] or attacking the hobby.[12]

  • 01/02/15--10:28: Monsquaz
  • About

    Monsquaz is an 3D model of a naked man and monsquaz.swf is a flash animation later made based on this image[8]. There is a censored and an uncensored version of the animation. In the censored version, a green arrow is covering the penis.

    Origin

    The original Monsquaz picture was made in the software Poser 6. On December 23rd, 2005, a 4chan user going by the name dusthillguy made monsquaz.swf. In a way it’s a successor to robind.swf (an earlier flash movie made by dusthillguy), with influences from Cyan Helkaraxe, Deven Gallo, Mr Bungle and a french amateur musician. The name Monsquaz comes from the song Mr. Bungle – Ma Meeshka Mow Skwoz.

    Spread

    It’s website, www.monsquaz.com, originally featured the monsquaz.swf animation in fullscreen[3]. It has since been expanded to be more interactive. The monsquaz.swf video on youtube was uploaded on November 20, 2007, and currently has over 30,000 views[1]. Since the monsquaz.swf file has spread on various other websites such as swfchan[4] and other image boards, the exact view count is unknown. When youtube introduced higher quality video formats, it was reuploaded titled Monsquaz (HD)[2].

    During a LAN party in Gothenburg 2007, a Monsquaz Watching Contest was held where the contestants had to watch monsquaz.swf for as long as possible[7]. A video of the contest was hosted on Google Videos which is now unfortunately gone. Around 20 people joined the contest and the rules were strict, you had to keep your eyes on the screen. After four hours, one of the three remaining contestants suddenly had a nosebleed and had to leave. Then the two remaining contestants sat until 5 hours and 5 minutes when the guy who came second closed his eyes for too long as he was falling asleep, meaning the contest finally ended and the winner was declared.

    In 2009, an anonymous user made a post on the bunbunmaru image board about the sunset used as background in monsquaz.swf[6]. The following posts described further history, such as Deven Gallos involvement and how the idea spawned.

    On 11th February 2012, an album was released in honor of Monsquaz named Fackin’ Hardcore[5].

    The Monsquaz community hangs out at #monsquaz @ irc.esper.net. Each year on 23 December, the day monsquaz.swf was created, they celebrate the International Monsquaz Watching Day (IMWD). In 2015, Monsquaz will celebrate 10 years and a large party is being planned.
