  • 08/24/15--20:05: Ladybeard


  • About

    Ladybeard is the stage name of Australian professional actor, heavy metal singer, wrestler and martial artist Richard Magarey, whose peculiar stage persona as a five-year-old girl often crossplaying in little girl costumes made him an internet sensation in Asia circa 2011. In mid-2015, he joined Japanese Pop-Metal band LadyBaby and his online popularity soared worldwide when the clip of their debut song Nippon Manju was released to Youtube.

    Personal Life

    Richard Magarey was born in 1983 in Adelaide, Australia. He graduated from the Flinders University of South Australia Drama Centre in 2004 with a Bachelor of Creative Arts. Since 2011, he lives in Tokyo, Japan.

    Career

    Acting

    In 2006, he moved to Hong-Kong and travelled around Asia starring in a number of flicks and commercials (shown below), both as an actor and stuntman.



    Wrestling

    Around the same time he arrived in Hong-Kong, Magarey started performing with the Hong Kong Wrestling Federation in which he created his Ladybeard character, also known as WuSoLui, mixing his muscular bear-like stature with the persona of a pop singer little girl usually wearing dresses and pigtails (example shown below).



    Music

    More than his stage name, Ladybear was also the name of a metal band in which he performed as the vocalist[1].
    His popularity among Southern Asian people was so impressive that he conducted several interviews, including one for Hong-Kong TVB J2 in the summer 2011 (shown below).



    Modeling

    In Japan, Magarey began pursuing a career in modeling using his persona. On August 11th 2014, Japanese news site Girls Walker interviewed him about the release of his first pin-up dvd[2]. The story was picked by videogame and Japanese culture site Kotaku on August 14th[3], noting that some photographs take place in a well-known Japanese location (shown below).



    Internet Presence

    Ladybeard has his own official website[4] as well as an official Facebook page with over 57 000 likes[5] and a Twitter account with over 83 000 subscribers[6]. During the course of 2014, he collaborated with Hideaki Kobayashi, also known as the “Sailor Suit Old Man” and another Japanese internet sensation, in various photographs[7] (shown below).



    LadyBaby’s Debut

    On July 4th, 2015, Japanese Pop-Metal band LadyBaby released their debut song Nippon Manju, featuring vocalist Ladybeard (shown below). The Youtube clip accumulated over 6 700 000 views in the next two months.



    Soon after, news websites such as Forbes[8], Mashable[9] and The Daily Mail[10] issued pieces about the phenomenon, highlighting this weird combination of a western hairy muscular man with pigtails and a wide range of costumes performing among Japanese young girls.

  • 08/25/15--10:17: 2NE1
  • work in progress

    About

    2NE1 is an all-female musical group from South Korea, consisting of CL, Minzy, Dara (Sandara Park), and Park Bom. The group is known for its popular music, which is K-pop with a hip hop influence, and their edgy, bright appearance.

    Online History

    Debut and Early Career

    2NE1 were officially formed in 2009 by the South Korean company YG Entertainment, and their first single was a collaboration with another group on the YG label, Big Bang, for a song called “Lollipop,” which was created as a commercial for a new LG mobile phone. Between its upload date of May 15th, 2009 and August 2015, the song has received over 56 million views on YouTube. It also sold over 3.3 million digital copies and topped the Gaon musical chart in April 2009.[1]



    Their first single by the group, released in May 2009 and titled “Fire,” incorporated many hip hop elements into a K-pop song written by producer Teddy Park. The group released two videos for the single, a “Space” version and a “Street” version. The “Space” version is more popular, with over 39 million views, while the “Street” version has over 12 million views. The single topped all of the Korean charts.[4]


    Japanese Debut and Later Albums

    The group planned to debut in Japan in 2011, but after the 2011 Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami the group released their record 2NE1 with no promotion or fanfare. Despite this, the record still reached number 36 on the Japanese charts, and the group performed for relief fundraisers with many other Korean stars.[1]

    2NE1 produced the group’s most popular single, “I Am the Best (내가 제일 잘 나가)”, which was first uploaded to YouTube on June 27th, 2011 and between then and August 2015 has received more than 130 million views and the single topped the world digital sales charts in 2014 after it was used in advertisement for the Microsoft Surface 3 tablet.[23][24]



    World Tour and Drug Scandal

    In 2014, 2NE1 released a full length record entitled Crush and embarked on the “All: Or Nothing” world tour, which gained them more international notoriety; in addition, they released “I am the Best” in America, where it became popular.[24]

    During the tour, news broke that Park Bom had attempted to smuggle 82 pills of medical narcotic amphetamines into South Korea in October of 2010. Prescribed the amphetamines by a doctor in the United States, where they are legal, Bom nonetheless attempted to use international mail to illegally transport the pills to South Korea. Although the incident was only discovered four years later, Bom withdrew her participation from all awards ceremonies in 2014, and only re-emerged to the public in 2015 after a long reclusive period.[17][18]

    Solo Careers

    Three members of 2NE1 are currently pursuing solo careers in addition to their work through the group. Park Bom has released two singles independently of 2NE1 that have reached number one on the Gaon Singles Chart, titled “You and I” and “Don’t Cry”. “You and I” is the most downloaded single by a solo female artist in the history of YG Entertainment. Dara works frequently as an actress and model, having appeared frequently on Korean television in a variety of cameo and speaking roles.[20][25]

    CL began releasing solo music in 2013, scoring an international hit with “나쁜 기집애 (The Baddest Female).” As of August 2015 CL is managed by Scooter Braun, who also manages American pop stars like Justin Bieber, and has announced that her debut American album, where she raps and sings in English, will be released in fall of 2015, following the debut of her initial single “Doctor Pepper” on August 14th, 2015.[19]



    Online Presence

    2NE1 maintains profiles on all Western social media sites, including Facebook, where they have over 9 million likes, and Instagram where they have barely posted but still have over 375,000 followers.[5][8] Their fans are called Blackjacks, as an allusion to the number 21 in the name of the group, and club maintains official fan club web sites in English and Japanese as well as an official Twitter and a subreddit.[6][7][11] There are also localized profiles in other regions, including Japan and China, where they have an official Weibo with over 800,000 followers.[10]

    In addition, each member has their own official western profiles on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.[12][13][14][15][16] The official 2NE1 YouTube account has 312 videos and almost 2.9 million subscribed as of August 2015; 90 of those videos have over 1 million views. [4]

    “Bad Blood” Controversy

    In July of 2015, several media outlets, most vocally Jezebel, began discussing the visual similarities between Taylor Swift’s“Bad Blood” music video, which had been nominated for several MTV Video Music Awards, and the video for 2NE1’s “Come Back Home.” “Bad Blood” was directed by a Korean-American filmmaker named Joseph Kahn, and some writers assumed that this fact and the visual similarities, which occurred in several different scenes could make a valid case for plagiarism.[22]


    Joseph Kahn responded to the allegations made by Jezebel by saying that the allegation was slanderous:

    “The implication your writer is making is explicit: I am a foreigner born overseas and I am trying to reconnect with my birth country and have obvious motive to copy it.

    I do not listen to Kpop. I am American. And this is an unethical, slandering article."

  • 08/25/15--13:13: Today You, Tomorrow Me
  • About

    “Today You, Tomorrow Me” is a memorable quote from a heartwarming anecdote told by Redditor Jason Horner about a Mexican immigrant who refused to take $20 in exchange for giving him roadside assistance.

    Origin

    On December 13th, 2010, Redditor MD786 submitted a post titled “Have you ever picked up a hitch-hiker?” to the /r/AskReddit[1] subreddit, which subsequently reached the front page with over 2,500 votes (97% upvoted) prior to being archived. In the comments section, Redditor Jason Horner (a.k.a. rhoner) posted a story about a Mexican immigrant couple who selflessly helped him on the side of the road with a blown out tire. When Horner insisted on giving the couple $20 for their aid, the man refused and said “Today you, tomorrow me.”


    Just about every time I see someone I stop. I kind of got out of the habit in the last couple of years, moved to a big city and all that, my girlfriend wasn’t too stoked on the practice. Then some shit happened to me that changed me and I am back to offering rides habitually. If you would indulge me, it is long story and has almost nothing to do with hitch hiking other than happening on a road.
    This past year I have had 3 instances of car trouble. A blow out on a freeway, a bunch of blown fuses and an out of gas situation. All of them were while driving other people’s cars which, for some reason, makes it worse on an emotional level. It makes it worse on a practical level as well, what with the fact that I carry things like a jack and extra fuses in my car, and know enough not to park, facing downhill, on a steep incline with less than a gallon of fuel.
    Anyway, each of these times this shit happened I was DISGUSTED with how people would not bother to help me. I spent hours on the side of the freeway waiting, watching roadside assistance vehicles blow past me, for AAA to show. The 4 gas stations I asked for a gas can at told me that they couldn’t loan them out “for my safety” but I could buy a really shitty 1-gallon one with no cap for $15. It was enough, each time, to make you say shit like “this country is going to hell in a handbasket.”
    But you know who came to my rescue all three times? Immigrants. Mexican immigrants. None of them spoke a lick of the language. But one of those dudes had a profound affect on me.
    He was the guy that stopped to help me with a blow out with his whole family of 6 in tow. I was on the side of the road for close to 4 hours. Big jeep, blown rear tire, had a spare but no jack. I had signs in the windows of the car, big signs that said NEED A JACK and offered money. No dice. Right as I am about to give up and just hitch out there a van pulls over and dude bounds out. He sizes the situation up and calls for his youngest daughter who speaks english. He conveys through her that he has a jack but it is too small for the Jeep so we will need to brace it. He produces a saw from the van and cuts a log out of a downed tree on the side of the road. We rolled it over, put his jack on top, and bam, in business. I start taking the wheel off and, if you can believe it, I broke his tire iron. It was one of those collapsible ones and I wasn’t careful and I snapped the head I needed clean off. Fuck.
    No worries, he runs to the van, gives it to his wife and she is gone in a flash, down the road to buy a tire iron. She is back in 15 minutes, we finish the job with a little sweat and cussing (stupid log was starting to give), and I am a very happy man. We are both filthy and sweaty. The wife produces a large water jug for us to wash our hands in. I tried to put a 20 in the man’s hand but he wouldn’t take it so I instead gave it to his wife as quietly as I could. I thanked them up one side and down the other. I asked the little girl where they lived, thinking maybe I could send them a gift for being so awesome. She says they live in Mexico. They are here so mommy and daddy can pick peaches for the next few weeks. After that they are going to pick cherries then go back home. She asks if I have had lunch and when I told her no she gave me a tamale from their cooler, the best fucking tamale I have ever had.
    So, to clarify, a family that is undoubtedly poorer than you, me, and just about everyone else on that stretch of road, working on a seasonal basis where time is money, took an hour or two out of their day to help some strange dude on the side of the road when people in tow trucks were just passing me by. Wow…
    But we aren’t done yet. I thank them again and walk back to my car and open the foil on the tamale cause I am starving at this point and what do I find inside? My fucking $20 bill! I whirl around and run up to the van and the guy rolls his window down. He sees the $20 in my hand and just shaking his head no like he won’t take it. All I can think to say is “Por Favor, Por Favor, Por Favor” with my hands out. Dude just smiles, shakes his head and, with what looked like great concentration, tried his hardest to speak to me in English:
    “Today you…. tomorrow me.”
    Rolled up his window, drove away, his daughter waving to me in the rear view. I sat in my car eating the best fucking tamale of all time and I just cried. Like a little girl. It has been a rough year and nothing has broke my way. This was so out of left field I just couldn’t deal.
    In the 5 months since I have changed a couple of tires, given a few rides to gas stations and, once, went 50 miles out of my way to get a girl to an airport. I won’t accept money. Every time I tell them the same thing when we are through:
    “Today you…. tomorrow me.”

  • 08/25/15--17:45: Politwoops
  • About

    Politwoops is a web application and a network of connected websites devoted to archiving the deleted tweets of government officials. The tool operated between June 2012 and August 2015, and was widely cited by political journalists.

    History

    Politwoops was launched on May 30th, 2012 by the Sunlight Foundation, a non-profit devoted to transparent government practices. Using Twitter’s developer API, the site tracked the Twitter accounts of all the members of Congress in the United States, as well as President Barack Obama, and the accounts of candidates running for president in 2012]

    According to Sunlight Foundation employee Nicko Margolies, the site would track when the politician deleted the tweet, how much time elapsed between when it was posted and when it was deleted, and include screenshots of any links to external sites. Upon its launch it already had an archive of over 3,000 tweets; by the end of the site, three years later, it had archived over 15,500.[1]

    Cessation of Service

    On June 3th, 2015, Twitter contacted the Sunlight Foundation and informed them that the exception being made to the Twitter Terms of Service that allowed Politwoops to collect and archive the tweets of politicians would no longer be honored. Twitter claimed in a statement to Gawker that “Honoring the expectation of user privacy for all accounts is a priority for us, whether the user is anonymous or a member of Congress.”[4] However, this is in direct opposition to the law, which says that what American elected officials say publicly (Twitter is considered a public forum) is a matter of public record. [3]

    The Sunlight Foundation claimed to have not received any warning of the decision. In fact, according to the Christopher Gates, the president of the foundation, Twitter had actually cut the feed to their application three weeks before any communication had occurred between the two. Gates stated, “. . .We were told that their decision was not something that we could appeal, and, most surprisingly, they were not interested in reviewing any of the email conversation from 2012. Clearly, something changed -- and we’re not likely to ever know what it was.”

    The cessation of Politwoops – first in America, and then with the 30 worldwide affiliates that used the same software – was covered in most major news publications, including the Guardian , the Washington Post, and the New York Daily News.[5][6][7] In addition, many Twitter users involved in the political sphere on both the conservative and progressive sides of government publicly stated their support for the tool using Twitter, resulting in over 5,000 tweets using their name.[8]

    Highlights

    Jeff Miller’s Birther Tweet

    Upon its launch in on May 30th, 2012, one of the tweets recorded by Politwoops came from Florida Congressman Jeff Miller, who asked “Was Obama Born in the United States?” and linked to a Facebook poll asking the same question, indicating that the representative was supportive of the Birther Movement. Miller’s staff, when asked about the deleted tweet by Slate reporter Jeremy Stahl, said that the Congressman did not support the movement and that the tweet had been sent by mistake. Miller deleted his Twitter account that day.[9]

    Bowe Bergdahl Release Tweets

    After the release of prisoner of war Bowe Bergdahl from the Taliban, many politicians tweeted to express happiness that Bergdahl had been returned to his home country. However, when Republicans began to criticize the Obama administration for exchanging five high-level Taliban prisoners for Bergdahl, who many believed defected from his base, members of the GOP began deleting their congratulatory tweets. The members of the goverment who deleted tweets collected by Politwoops included Rep. Stephen F. Lynch (D-MA), Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE), Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV), and Joni Ernst, GOP Senate candidate in Iowa.[10]

  • 08/26/15--13:24: 2015 WDBJ-TV On-Air Shooting
  • Warning: This entry contains video footage portraying graphic violence.


    Overview

    2015 WDBJ-TV On-Air Shooting refers to the shootings of news reporter Alison Parker, camera operator Adam Ward and Chamber of Commerce spokeswoman Vicki Gardner during a live interview broadcast on the Virginia CBS affiliate news station WEBJ in late August 2015. Following the attack, Parker and Ward died from gunshot wounds.

    Background

    On August 26th, 2015, news reporter Alison Parker and camera operator Adam Ward were interviewing Moneta Chamber of Commerce employee Vicki Gardner during a live broadcast on the CBS affiliate WDBJ near the Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta, Virginia. During the interview, former WDBJ reporter Vester Lee Flanagan II walked up to the group and began firing upon them, killing Parker and Ward while severely injuring Gardner.

    Notable Developments

    Perpetrator’s Identity

    While being pursued by police down a Virginia highway, Flanagan, who also went by the name Bryce Williams, posted tweets[4] claiming Parker had made racist comments and questioned why she had been hired by the station (shown below).



    Additionally, Flanagan posted a video recording of the shooting taken from his perspective.[5] Two hours after the incident, a letter from Flanagan was received by ABC News, in which he confessed to the murders claiming he had been discriminated against for being a homosexual black man while citing the 2015 Charleston church and 2007 Virginia Tech shootings as inspirations.

    “What sent me over the top was the church shooting. And my hollow point bullets have the victims’ initials on them. Also, I was influenced by Seung–Hui Cho. That’s my boy right there. He got NEARLY double the amount that Eric Harris and Dylann Klebold got…just sayin. As for Dylann Roof? You want a race war? BRING IT THEN

    Hours after the pursuit started, Flanagan drove off the road where he was discovered with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, later dying at a local hospital. According to The Daily Mail,[3]WDBJ general manager Jeffrey Marks claimed Flanagan was “always looking out for people to say things he could take offense to” and had to be escorted by police out of the station after his employment was terminated in 2013.

    Online Reaction

    That day, YouTuber Vegetto991 uploaded a clip of the shooting (shown below). Shortly after, Redditor MBMinor1 submitted the footage to the /r/videos[1] subreddit, where it reached the front page with more than 8,000 votes (96% upvoted) and 10,400 comments in less than seven hours.



    Meanwhile, Redditor ComedianMikeB posted a photograph of Parker and Ward to the /r/pics[2] subreddit, discouraging viewers from listening to reports about the gunman (shown below). Within six hours, the post gathered upwards of 6,200 votes (90% upvoted) and 6,000 comments.



    Boyfriend’s Reaction

    That day, WDBJ reporter Chris Hurst posted a Facebook status update revealing that he and Parker were in love and had planned on getting married, along with several photographs of the two of them (shown below).

  • 08/27/15--11:38: E-mail Storm
  • About

    E-mail Storm (Reply Allpocalypse) refers to a spontaneous chain reaction of many-to-many messages in a group discussion that is usually triggered by an individual unintentionally sending one’s response to all users on the e-mail distribution list, instead of the original sender alone. Once initiated, other users often tend to prolong the discussion by replying to all users on the list with requests to be removed from the list or asking everyone to stop replying to all.

    Origin

    The earliest notable instance of an e-mail storm on a massive scale dates back to October 14th, 1997, when a Microsoft employee erroneously used the “reply all” option to unsubscribe himself from an obscure company e-mail distribution list labeled Bedlam DL3, which contained more than 13,000 e-mail addresses (approximately a quarter of the company’s employees). Soon, other employees who received the e-mail response began replying all in the thread with similar requests to be removed from the list, and some pleading others to stop responding to the thread. As a result, an estimated 15 million messages were sent by Microsoft employees, using roughly 195 GB of traffic in the process.

    Spread

    [researching]

    On October 3rd, 2007, an unnamed subscriber to the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Open Source Intelligence Report, a daily e-mail newsletter sent to hundreds to thousands of recipients, unknowingly replied to all subscribers on the list with a request for a change. Within the next hour, several dozens of other subscribers joined in on the discussion with a wide range of responses, including pleas to cease replying all, spams of job offers and political advertisements and humorous messages with status updates on local weather, which amounted to more than 2.2 million messages by the end of the day; according to the Department of Homeland Security and Defense officials, the thread unintentionally triggered a minor scale DDoS event and exposed the names of hundreds of security professionals and government contractors,.

    In January 2009, yet another e-mail storm nearly knocked out one of the U.S. State Department’s main servers after several American diplomats began replying all to a blank e-mail that was accidentally sent to thousands of subscribers on a global email list. Soon, a similar chain reaction unfolded, generating an extensive volume of e-mail communications which ultimately prompted the officials to issue a cable warning disciplinary actions for using the “reply to all” function.

    “Department staff hitting ‘reply to all’ on an e-mail with a large distribution list is causing an e-mail storm on the department’s OpenNet e-mail system. Anyone who disregards these instructions will be subject to disciplinary actions.”

    In November 2012, New York University Bursar’s Office sent a school-wide e-mail asking students to opt for paperless forms. Upon receiving the message, NYU sophomore student Max Wiseltier accidentally replied all to an outmoded Listserve system while trying to forward the e-mail to his mother for advice, which resulted in all 39,979 undergraduate students receiving his message.

  • About

    Sam and Nia (last name: Rader) are a Christian family of YouTube vloggers, who have become popular for sharing videos of their lives and the lives of their children, Symphony and Abram. Their became well-known outside of the Christian vlogging community after a series of videos they created, announcing a Nia’s pregnancy followed closely by her miscarriage, were accused of being fabricated.

    Online History

    Sam Rader created his YouTube account, samuel8955, on March 8th, 2007,[1] and started posting videos regularly in March of 2014. after their video “Good Looking Parents Sing Disney’s Frozen (Love Is an Open Door)” went viral shortly after its posting, inspiring articles on publications as varied as Babble, Gizmodo, and Perez Hilton.[2][3][4] The video was featured on television show Kathie Lee and Hoda, and eventually garnered more than 21 million views.[5]



    Soon, the family began posting videos more than once per day, releasing more than 500 videos between March 2014 and August 2015, many of which received more than 100,000 views. The videos often showed their intimate family moments and exhibited their Christian-American values. Their account eventually acquired over 363,000 subscribers.

    Pregnancy Announcement, Miscarriage Video, and Backlash

    On August 5th, 2015, Sam and Nia uploaded a video titled HUSBANDSHOCKSWIFEWITHPREGNANCYANNOUNCEMENT!, in which Sam, upon hearing that Nia’s period is late, dips a pregnancy test in a toilet bowl filled with his wife’s urine and then surprises her with the positive result. This video gained more than 1 million views in 24 hours, and was posted many entertainment blogs, including the Huffington Post, E! News, and The Daily Mail.[6][7][8] As of August 28th, 2015, the video has more than 14 million views.

    Three days later, on August 8th, 2015, after not posting to their account for 24 hours, Sam and Nia uploaded the video “Our Baby Had a Heartbeat,” which detailed how Nia had miscarried the previously announced pregnancy. This video received over 4 million views as of August 28th, 2015.



    Many commenters and others online voiced their skepticism at the authenticity of Sam and Nia’s pregnancy; many said that it was possible to get a false positive from the testing method used by Sam, and also that it was too early in the pregnancy to have known the gender of the child, which Sam and Nia refer to in their miscarriage video as female. In addition, according to Sam Rader, the viral success of the pregnancy videos had provided the family with enough income for him to quit his job as an ER nurse and live off of vlogging alone, and many suspected that this income was the impetus for the announcement, as pregnancy announcement videos are generally very popular in the Christian vlogging community, often going viral.[9] On August 14th, Sam and Nia uploaded a video titled “RESPONDING TO HATECOMMENTS!”, in which Sam discusses the criticisms and states that the backlash they were receiving was religious persecution, since the pregnancy and miscarriage was the fate chosen by God.



    Ashley Madison Controversy

    On August 21st, 2015, the Daily Mail published an exclusive analysis of the Ashley Madison data breach, which showed that Sam Rader, or someone using his name, address, and credit cards, had created an Ashley Madison account in September 2013 and made two $189 payments to keep it open, purportedly to find a partner with which to cheat on his marriage during his four year wedding anniversary to Nia and the birth of their second child.[10] After the disclosure, which was republished widely, Sam and Nia published both a video and written confession where they claim that Sam never met up with another woman using the site and that Nia had forgiven him.

    Over 2 years ago I did create the Ashely Madison account. To be clear this was only an account I used to navigate the site in my sinful curiosity and any messages or data pulled from that account would be evidence of that. I absolutely did not meet up or see another woman from the site. It was clearly a bad moment in my life and I acted on a sinful desire to be with another woman but never came close to going through with it. [11]



    This video received more than 1.1 million views, becoming their fifth most popular, but three days later, after being kicked out of the Seattle Vloggers Conference for getting in a verbal confrontation with another family vlogger, Sam and Nia announced that they were taking a short hiatus from vlogging.[12]

    Online Presence

    Sam and Nia have a Facebook page with over 73,000 likes, an Instagram with 18,300 followers, and a Twitter account with 14,600 followers. [13][14][15]
