  • 09/05/15--11:16: Super Mario Bros. Z
  • Super Mario Bros. Z (SMBZ) is a Flash animation series created by Alvin-Earthworm. The series first debuted on April 22, 2006 at the popular flash site Newgrounds. It is a crossover between the Mario and Sonic franchises, and draws heavy influence from the Dragon Ball Z franchise, such as the choreography of the fighting scenes, powering up, and free flight. The series has reached well known popularity over the 2006 year and continued onward during 2012. The series was and still is famous for its “Outstanding Achievement in a Fan-made web-series”. The series is targeted for 9 year olds and up only due to the promoted violence and mild language.

    The show contains many references to both the Mario and Sonic series. It also borrows many sprites from the various characters of the Mario and Sonic universe, primarily from the Game Boy Advanced and Nintendo DS era of their gaming history.

    The story starts with a robotic creation from another dimension, known as Mecha Sonic coming into Mario’s Universe. hunting for gemstones known as Chaos Emeralds. Further away from this start, during an annual race between Mario and Luigi and the Wario brothers, Bowser intervenes and attempts to capture the princess and destroy Mario once and for all. Which he would have done, had not two more newcomers entered the field, Sonic and Shadow. As time went on, they revealed that their home world, Mobius, was razed from the ground up by Mecha Sonic, and that they had teleported the Chaos emeralds to Mario’s universe, and now must find them before Mecha Sonic does and the same fate befalls the Mushroom Kingdom.

    Episodes Produced

    Eight episodes were created, with a time span of anywhere from two months to sixteen months with each new episode. The ninth episode was slightly started before March 26, 2012, when Alvin-Earthworm, the creator of the series, grew tired of making the episode and discontinued the series.

    Spin offs

    With the massive amount of fan support from the series, a number of fan made spin offs have been produced, and a number of continuations as well.

    Continuation

    On October 5, 2013, Alvin stated that he had somewhat regained interest in working on the series. He had recently reacquired Flash and was practicing with it by reanimating the first scene of Episode 1. He stated that if he does indeed start full work on the series again, he intends to reboot the entire series thus far, rather than continue with Episode 9. He says that the reason for this is he is dissatisfied with how some episodes turned out and wants to use better animation and better story with some plot changes.

    Alvin has also stated he will not be passing on the rights of the series to anyone. This is due to the fact that Alvin still has a vision for the how the series would have ended and another person might mess it up. This, alongside a trailer for Episode 9 ending with the words “The End?”, could mean that Alvin still has plans for the future of the series.

    The creator of the series stated that he plans on making 45 episodes total, dividing them into 3 Sagas sporting 15 episodes apiece, and at least 1 movie. The show is not endorsed or licensed by Nintendo nor Sega and is non-canon. There is also a fan site devoted to the show and its spin-offs.

  • 09/05/15--17:12: The Simpsons Did It
  • About

    The Simpsons Did It is a term used to call out ideas considered “new” that may have already been perfomed on famous tv show The Simpsons, due to its influence as a long-running series. The phrase evolved to point out the predictive nature of several situations and jokes made in the show that eventually turned out to happen in real life.

    Origin

    On June 26th, 2002, Comedy Central first aired The 7th episode from the 6th season of popular tv show South Park. Titled “Simpsons Already Did It”, the episode, which continues on from the events of the previous episode “Professor Chaos”, Butters thinks up a series of schemes to take over the world, but realizes that each one has already been performed on The Simpsons[1]. In one of the scenes, uploaded to YouTube on October 28th 2010 (shown below), Butter’s assistant keeps repeating the phrase “Simpsons did it”, as an answer to indicate that an idea Butter had, under his Professor Chaos persona, and thought was new, was actually already done in the show, which drives him mad.

    In a commentary video made by the South Park creators, they state how the episode came to be after they realized The Simpsons already beat them to a lot of ideas and jokes they had for their own show[5].

    Spread

    As highlighted by a thread on the Democratic Underground forums on July 11th 2003[3], the catchphrase was quoted in various discussions about lack of originality in more recent tv shows, including The Simpsons itself.
    On May 11th 2004, Urban Dictionary user Mister Ignorant submitted an entry for “Simpsons Did It”[2], giving the following definition:

    A term you refer to when a situation requested by someone has been already done on The Simpsons.

    Derives from South Park.

    On April 14th 2009, humor website CollegeHumor released a music clip parodying “we didn’t start the fire” by Billy Joel, using various comments from the site and YouTube as lyrics[6] (Youtube upload from 2013 shown below).

    The phrase can be read, along with “South Park did it too”.
    On TVTropes, the page for the It’s Been Done trope that was created on October 23th 2011, lists the phrase “The Simpsons Did It” as an alternative title[4]
    A Meme Generator macro was also launched in 2013[16], leading to about 60 parodies as of September 2015.

    The SImpsons’ Predictions

    Among Conspiracy Theories enthiusiasts, a peculiar screenshot from a scene in episode 179, titled “The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson” and first aired on September 21st 1997, featuring Lisa Simpson showing a booklet about a 9$ bus ride to the city, became quoted as an example of the show predicting the events of the September 11th attacks because of the strange outline of the number “9” with the Twin Towers forming “11”[7] (shown below).


    On August 11th, 2009, College Humor issued a list of jokes and situations made in the show that were eventually found to happen in real life years after the episodes aired[18]. Similar lists were made on BuzzFeed[9] and other media blogs and sites such as What Culture[10] and Mashable[11]. News outlets and blogs also took parts in this phenomenon, highlighting several instances of the show predicting future events such as Donald Trump presidency in the Daily Mail[12] or the 2015 Greek crisis on Metro News[13].
    In 2012, the Tumblr“SImpsons Did It” was launched[14], posting real life examples reminiscent from the show. An entire sub-reddit was also created in 2013[15].

    “If I Install Windows 32bit Twice Would That Make It 64bit?” is a catchphrase poised by seemingly technologically impared users asking if installing a Windows 32-bit version twice would yield in the user obtaining a Windows 64-bit operating system. The phrase is often posted on tech help and other forums to troll other posters in a manner similar to Download More RAM or Alt+F4.

    I have a question,
    I recently took delivery of my new Dell, which came with the 32bit version of Windows 7, however the PC is capable of running at 64bit.
    If I install Windows 7 32bit twice would that make it 64bit?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Initially users took the question at face value, but over time the question was reposted to other websites where the reply:

    Yes, but you will also get Windows 14.

  • 09/09/15--14:21: John McAfee
  • About

    John McAfee is an American computer programmer known for developing the McAfee anti-virus software. In 2012 and 2013, McAfee returned to the United States after several disputes with law enforcement in Belize and Guatemala. In September 2015, he announced he would be running for President of the United States as part of his newly formed Cyber Party.

    History

    From 1968 to 1970, McAfee was a computer programmer at NASA’s Institute for Space Studies in New York City. In the 1980s, he was hired by the Lockheed Corporation, where he began working on software to combat computer viruses. In 1987, he founded the anti-virus company McAfee Associates from which he resigned seven years later. In February 2010, McAfee formed the company QuorumEx to produce natural antibiotics using bacterial quorum sensing technology.

    Legal Trouble

    In April 2012, the Belize Police Department raided McAfee’s property for unlicensed drug manufacturing and possession of an unlicensed weapon. He was subsequently released without charge. In November that year, McAfee fled Belize after police named him a “person of interest” in the murder of American expatriate Gregory Viant Faull. In December, Vice inadvertently leaked McAfee’s location at a Guatemalan resort by posting a photograph with the EXIF geolocation data intact. That month, McAfee was detained in Guatemala and deported to the United States.



    Online Presence

    In June 2013, McAfee released a video titled “How to Uninstall McAfee Antivirus,” in which he presents instructions for removing McAfee software while snorting drugs and being caressed by a group of women (shown below).



    On March 10th, 2014, McAfee uploaded a video titled “John McAfee the Real Most Interesting Man in the World,” which parodies the “The Most Interesting Man in the World” commercials for Dos Equis beer (shown below).



    Social Media Presence

    In November 2012, McAfee launched the @officialmcafee[1] Twitter feed and a Facebook[2] page, which gathered upwards of 27,500 followers and 9,700 likes over the next three years.

    Presidential Run Announcement

    On September 8th, 2015, McAfee announced his candidacy in the 2016 United States presidential election. That day, the campaign website McAfee16.com[3] was launched, featuring information regarding voting, donations, volunteering and press inquiries.



    On September 9th, CNN[4] reported that McAfee planned to run under his newly created “Cyber Party,” and would be focusing on addressing issues related to government spying and technological freedom.

    “We are losing privacy at an alarming rate -- we have none left. We’ve given up so much for the illusion of security and our government is simply dysfunctional.”

    Personal Life

    John McAfee was born on September 18th, 1945 at a United States Army base in the United Kingdom. In 1967, he received a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Roanoke College, where he went on to gain a Doctor of Science degree in 2008. McAfee teaches and has written several books about yoga. As of September 2015, McAfee lives in Lexington, Tennessee with his wife Janice Dyson.

    Bush Did 9/11 is a catchphrase often used to assign responsibility to the September 11th, 2001 attacks to the former president of the United States George W. Bush. The phrase is often used in jest, similar to other 9/11 Truther memes like Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams, but spiked in popularity in 2015 when popular musician Justin Bieber released a video with the phrase subliminally inserted.

    Origin

    The exact origin of the phrase is unknown, however one of the earliest examples of its discussion online dates to 2006, when actor Charlie Sheen stated it in an interview with InfoWars founder Alex Jones.[1]



    Spread

    The phrase has been in wide use since the mid-2000s, especially by people discussing the 9/11 Truth Movement in a sincere way. However, in spring of 2015, it became popular among Vine users to create posts with the phrase as the title and the subject.[2] On April 7th, 2015, user WTF Von posted one of the most popular videos of this genre, titled “HE PAUSED SO HARDOMGBUSHDID IT GUYS I KNEW IT” in which he uses the phrase in conversation with his teacher (below left). As of September 9th, 2015, the video has over 4.2 million loops, 44,000 likes, 22,900 revines, and 2,300 comments. In addition, an older clip of an interview with George W.

    About

    Nina Tucker is a character from the anime and manga series Full Metal Alchemist, a four-year old girl who was fused together with her dog and turned into a chimera by her father. Due her transformation and death, she is often used as troll tactic to anger the series fans.

    Origin

    Nina first appeared on Full Metal Alchemist’s fifth chapter, The Alchemist’s Suffering, released in December, 2001.[5] In it, Edward and Alphonse Elric visit the chimeric alchemist Shou Tucker, who was able to make a chimera capable of human speech, and meet his daughter Nina. After becoming friends with her and her dog, Alexander, one of the days the brothers are informed by Shou that he was able to create another chimera able to speak. However, Ed realises the chimera contains both Nina and Alexander, beating Shou when he confirms it, and later apologising to Nina for not being able to separate them. After the brothers leave, a stranger enters on the house and kills both Shou and Nina, asking God to take care of their souls.[1] On March 17th, 2011, youtuber NEWACCOUNTKAIROUZVISUAL uploaded the death scene from the 2009 anime series, gathering over 400,000 views in the following years.



    Spread

    One of the earliest uses of Nina for trolling purpouses can be found on a thread submitted on 4chan’s anime and manga board /a/ on February 25th, 2012. The thread featured a “Japanese animal noises” game, being the second response Nina in her chimera form.[3]
