  • 05/10/15--21:05: Hoo Hah
  • About

    Hoo Hah is the name given to an infamous combo used by the character Diddy Kong in the fighting game Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U. The combo was well known in the Smash community for its ease of use and extreme effectiveness.

    Origin

    The term hoo hah comes from the noises made by Diddy Kong, a monkey, as he performs the combo, which consisted of a doawnward throw and an upward aerial attack.[1] The term did not come to true popularity until January of 2015, when the Smash Bros.-centered YouTube channel GRsmash uploaded a video of the professional Smash player Hungrybox quitting in the middle of a professional fight where, after repeatedly falling for the combo, would get heckled by Smash player StaticManny, who shouted the term from the audience. This video gained over 250,000 views.

    Spread

    As Hungrybox’s sudden quit rose in popularity, so did the combo. The video was posted to the subreddit /r/smashbros on January 18, where it gained over 600 upvotes and over 600 comments.[2] On January 25, professional Smash player Omni uploaded a video explaining the technique’s origin and the community’s reaction, which gained over 50,000 views. On March 8, YouTuber AlpharadTV uploaded a compilation of Hoo Hah combos featuring an edited version of the theme song to the Donkey Kong Country animated series, which gained over 66,000 views. The term appears more than 450 times on SmashBoards, the largest Smash Bros. discussion forum, though this number may be too low an estimation as the board’s search function cuts off results at April 2015, months after the term first rose in popularity.[3]

    Death of the Hoo Hah

    In April 2015, both versions of Super Smash Bros. 4 were patched to accommodate for several new features, such as the character Mewtwo; alongside this, most characters received changes to balance the game out.[4] Diddy suffered heavily from these changes, with the Hoo Hah being noticeably nerfed. Fans noted this with jokes about the “death” of the Hoo Hah.

  • 05/08/15--07:42: Clinton Cash
  • Overview

    Clinton Cash is a 2015 book written by American political journalist Peter Schweizer in which he raises several ethical questions concerning how Bill and Hillary Clinton amassed their wealth by investigating the history of donations made by various foreign entities to the Clinton Foundation, a non-profit humanitarian organization established by former United States president Bill Clinton in 2001.

    Background

    Prior to the release of his book, Peter Schweizer, the American political commentator and president of the conservative investigative research organization Government Accountability Institute (GAI), made exclusive agreements with The New York Times, The Washington Post and Fox News for syndication of his work. Upon its publication on May 5th, 2015, the book stirred up a debate in the U.S. news media over the ethical integrity of the Clintons, particularly in regard to foreign donations received by the Clinton Foundation, such as compensation for speeches delivered by Bill Clinton and possible conflicts of interest as a result thereof while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State for the United States from 2009 to 2013.



    Notable Developments

    Online Reaction

    On Twitter, Hillary Clinton’s critics began tweeting about the book’s allegations along with the hashtag “#OhHillNo” (shown below). According to the Twitter analytics site Topsy,[13] the hashtag was tweeted over 50,000 times from April 11th to May 11th.

    .



    Criticism

    On April 22nd, the news site Politico[11] published a review of an advanced chapter of the book, which criticized Schweizer for failing to present adequate evidence for his claims. The same day, the news site Time[12] faulted the book for presenting allegations “as questions rather than proof.” On April 28th, BuzzFeed News[10] published a statement from Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna, who dismissed Schweizer’s allegations that Bill Clinton was paid for speeches in Ireland by businessman Dennis O’Brien as false.

    Clinton’s Response

    In response to the book, the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign issued a sweeping dismissal Schweizer’s claims. On April 20th, Clinton made her first public statement regarding the controversy:


    “We are back into the political season and there are all kinds of distractions and attacks, and I am ready for that. I know that that comes, unfortunately, with the territory. It is, I think, worth nothing that the Republicans seem to be talking only about me. I don’t know what they would be talk about if I wasn’t in the race. But I am in the race and hopefully we will get onto the issues and I look forward to that.”
    [8]

    On May 5th, the Clinton campaign launched a webpage titled “The Briefing”[9] to refute claims made in the Clinton Cash book. The page features a video presented by Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon, who insists that Schweizer’s allegations had been “debunked far and wide” (shown below).

  • WIP


    About

    Nineteen Eighty-Four, sometimes called 1984, is a science-fiction novel written by George Orwell in 1949. As a detailed description of a speculative dystopian government, it has become one of the most influental books in the last few decades, spawning several memes in- and outside the internet.

    Premise

    Nineteen Eighty-Four takes place in the totalitarian superstate of Oceania, ruled by political party called Ingsoc, which is divided into three three social classes: Proles, the manual labor, Outer Party, which handles the menial political work, and Inner Party, the ruling class. The leader of Inner Party is Big Brother, who enjoys an intense cult of personality. Both Outer Party and Proles live in perpetual poverty and misery, but Outer party is far more closely supervised via telescreens and thought police, while being constantly bombed with state propaganda. The Party members’ capasity for independent thinking is limited even more by doublethink, which forces them to genuinely believe the Party’s propaganda, and newspeak, a simplified version of English language which limits their intellectual capacity.

    The main character of the novel is Winston Smith, an Outer Party member who works in the Ministry of Truth, which constantly forges history to fit Party’s current interests. Winston Eventually get’s in Party-forbidden relationship with another Outer Party member named Julia, and comes into contact with O’Brien, an Inner Party member who’s secretly against Big Brother’s dictatorship.

    Related Memes

    Big Brother Is Watching You
