    About

    Keeping Up with the Kardashians is a reality television show on E! Entertainment Network that focuses on the lives of three sisters: Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian. The show follows the sisters as they go about their daily lives, which include interacting with their large extended family, who include: Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner, Caitlyn Jenner, Kanye West, Scott Disick, and, as time goes on, the family’s youngest generation.

    The show has received a large quantity of criticism for its low quality and positive depictions of shameful behavior. However, since its first airing, the series has maintained a high amount of viewership, with season premieres receiving between 1.3 million and 4.5 million viewers.

    History

    The Kardashians are a wealthy family from Beverley Hills, California. Robert Kardashian, the deceased father of Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Rob, and the husband of Kris Jenner, was a famous lawyer in Los Angeles, known for representing celebrities, including O.J. Simpson in his 1990s murder trial. As of 2015, the Kardashian family is thought to have a collective net worth of more than $100 million.[3]

    In 2004, Kim Kardashian became a stylist to various celebrities, including becoming the personal shopper and stylist to Lindsey Lohan. She also became romantically involved with several celebrity men, including Nick Lachey of the boy band 98 Degrees and more famously the rapper Ray J. A home sex tape between Kardashian and Ray J leaked in 2007, and was purchased and released by Vivid Entertainment – Kardashian later settled out of court for over $5 million dollars with Vivid over the rights to the tape, but not before it had been downloaded and viewed millions of times.[2] In 2015, Vivid Entertainment claimed that the tape was the best selling celebrity sex tape of all time, and Pornhub claimed that it had been downloaded more than 93 million times.[4][5]

    Soon after the release of the tape, Kim Kardashian entered talks with Ryan Seacrest and E! Entertainment Network to launch the reality television series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

    Cast

    The series began by focusing on the lives of the four children of Kris Jenner by her first marriage to Robert Kardashian: Kim Kardashian West, Rob Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian. The three sisters own a boutique called D-A-S-H, and launch several clothing lines, handbags, and fragrances throughout the series.[2]

    As the series has progressed, Jenner’s children by her second marriage to Caitlyn Jenner (then known as Bruce) also became characters on the show: Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Brody Jenner, and Brandon Jenner. Kendall and Kylie, who are now in their late teens, have both launched careers in modeling during their time on the show.

    Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, is also a recurring character on the show, which has followed her transition from male to female and its effects on her family. Other recurring characters include Scott Disick, Kourtney’s boyfriend, and Leah Jenner, Brandon’s wife. Other members of the family occasionally include their love interests as well, notably Kim’s previous marriage to Kris Humpries and Khloé’s tempestuous relationship with basketball player Lamar Odom.

    Impact

    By placing themselves and their families in the public eye for eight consecutive seasons, the Kardashian/Jenner clan has reaped substantial financial and career benefits, including many brand sponsorships, product endorsements, and other cultural appearances.

    Spinoffs

    Several characters on the show have received spinoffs. These shows include the location based series Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons. In addition Khloé & Lamar featured their episodes focusing on the pair’s romance. An upcoming spinoff focuses on the women who work in the Kardashians’ boutique D-A-S-H and is called Dash Dolls.

    Before Caitlyn Jenner transitioned, she was the subject of a 20/20 special about the process called Bruce. In addition, E! will release an eight episode miniseries entitled I Am Cait about Caitlyn’s transition.

  • 06/03/15--17:24: Katanas
  • I don’t know much about Katanas, help would be appreciated

    About

    Katanas are traditionally Japanese weapons that have been seen in the west as “Japanese”, gaining them popularity with “weeaboos”. This has caused mockery of those who own this weapon as trying too hard to be Japanese, and is lumped along with neckbeards and fedoras. The phrase “unsheathes Katana” has been used as an ironic phrase to poke fun of these types, along with tips fedora.

    Origin

    Katanas were first produced in the Muromachi period in feudal Japan, and have been a mainstay in Japanese weaponry since.

    Spread

    Owing it to being traditionally Japanese, Katanas have been seen being used a lot by characters in animes, leading to a weeaboo fascination of the weapon.

    Various Examples

    Katanas are Underpowered in D20

    Katanas are Underpowered in D20 is a copypasta that complains about how katanas are far too good in real life to have such a “pathetic” stat block in the d20 system. It’s normally used as a way to impersonate katana entusiasts and japanophiles.



    Glorious Nippon Steel Folded Over 1000 Times

    “Glorious Nippon Steel Folded Over 1000 Times” is an ironic catchphrase use to impersonate and mock those who think katanas are vastly superior to western weapons. The folding is a reference to Japanese metal quality, lower than European, that made it treat its weapons by a folding process to remove impurities.[1] The catchphrase has been associated with a captioned gif from the videogame War Thunder, featuring a plane cutting a wing from another plane with its wing, inspired by a January 9th, 2014 video uploaded by youtuber chobit389.[2]

  • About

    Babies Eating Lemons refers to a reaction video trend where parents film themselves feeding limes or lemons to their babies, anticipating the baby’s surprise at the sour taste. The videos are popular as compilations.

    Origin

    The first known videos of babies eating lemons or limes appeared in 2006. Uploaded July 8th, 2006 by user stinkerbella, “Baby Eats a Lime” (below) featured a home video recording of a baby named Holiday at a party where her parents claim she loves lime. As Holiday eats the lime, she makes a series of funny pucker faces. The later video, uploaded August 20th, 2006 by user melangelo’s channel (embedding disabled, but can be viewed here) was titled “Angelo Eating Lime” and featured a baby in a high chair surrounded by older children, who are feeding the baby a slice of lime.

    In 1988, Dick Wolf developed a concept for a new television series that would illustrate the inner workings of the American criminal justice system in an hour-long episode, from the criminal investigation and arrest of a suspect by the police to the prosecution of the defendant by the district attorney’s office. After pitching the show and the pilot episode to all three major U.S. broadcast networks, the series was picked up by NBC for a full season, premiering on September 13th, 1990.

    RRAAAARRL / Rorschach Jumping Out The Window

    Rorschach Jumping Out The Window refers to a memorable scene from the comics where the character Rorschach jumps from a window while shouting RRAAAARRL. Rorschach’s pose has been used as image edit exploitable.



    Rorschach Diaries

    In the book the character Rorshach has a distinct way of writing and speaking. He often writes analytically about the situations he’s in. He uses brief sentences and makes note of his thoughts at the time. He describes other characters in this way and tends to convey his more politically right wing beliefs using phrases like ‘Pampered and decadent, betraying even his own shallow, liberal affectations’ and ‘Possibly homosexual.’

    His most well known diary entries are his monologue, his most known one being "This city is afraid of me…I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout “Save us!”… and I’ll look down and whisper “No.” Which has spawned many different parodies of the monologue.



    Hurm

    ‘Hurm’ is a quote that is often used by Rorshach throughout the book. It usually used when he is pondering about something.
