On September 21st, 2007, WikiHow published its 25,000th article, “How to Make an Eiskaffee (Creamy Iced Coffee)." In 2009, the website surpassed 20 million monthly visitors and completed a redesign.

  • 02/11/16--15:25: Yuge
  • work in progress

    About

    Yuge (sometimes spelled yooge) is the pronunciation of the English adjective “huge” in a dialect called “New York City English”, which causes the /h/ to be reduced to a /y/ sound because of the presence of /u/ and /j/. The pronunciation became popular during the 2016 Presidential Election because of its frequent use by both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, both of whom are New York City natives that speak New York City English.

    Origin

    New York City English is a dialect of English spoken by natives of New York City and the surrounding areas, and is often featured on television as a stand-in for a blue-collar or middle-class manner of speaking. There are generally two forms of the dialect – one is spoken by those who were born in the area before 1950, and one is spoken by those who were born after.[1]

    However, according to Wikipedia, the modifications of consonants as is seen in yuge, is not necessarily as common as the modifications of vowels. This makes it unusual that two presidential candidates in the same year would both present the same consonant modification, but Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders were only born 5 years apart; the former in 1946 and the latter in 1941. This time-based relationship increases the likelihood of their accents being similar. Yooge, the alternative spelling, was first defined by Urban Dictionary by the user Canuckian on March 19th, 2004 as “Overblown, ostentatious;” the example given immediately linked the word to Trump.[2]

    Spread

    The New York Times first noticed that Bernie Sanders used yuge in a 2007 profile,[3] and the first known reference to Donald Trump’s use of yuge by the media was by People in 2004,[4] who included the adjective in a short slideshow referencing Trump’s scandalous divorce in the 1980s. In November 2009, it was used in the headline of a piece about Trump’s bankruptcies in Atlantic City that was published by Gawker.[5]

    As both Sanders and Trump announced their campaigns and began to run in their party’s respective 2016 election, the word was often used to describe the size of their crowds and the candidate’s presences by the media. In July 2015, a YouTube user called Florida for Sanders uploaded a supercut of Bernie Sanders saying yuge in various speeches and appearances (below left); the video gained 11,000 views as of February 2016. On September 11th, 2015, Jimmy Fallon, imitating Trump in a comedy sketch which also featured Donald Trump, used the word to describe the importance of the first Republican debate to Trump’s campaign (below right). The YouTube upload of Fallon’s sketch earned 8.6 million views.



    As both Sanders and Trump emerged as leaders in their respective fields, the adjective’s use in the media then shifted to being used to compare and contrast their electoral approaches, which were both seen as outside the general political establishment. On August 19th, 2015, MSNBC ran a segment on the show All In with Chris Hayes detailing both candidates’ use of the word.[6] And when both Sanders and Trump won in the 2016 New Hampshire Primary, a variety of media outlets, including Vox.com,[7] the Tampa Bay Times,[8] and the Washington Post[9] ran articles describing the results as yuge.

    About

    This entry is about when Kanye West released the first version of the album’s cover, which many quickly realized it was sloppily made once seen, and some even thought the album was just a giant hoax after seeing it.

    Origin

    In 2016, February 11th, at 11:57 AM, Kanye West uploaded a tweet [1] which was the very first version of the album. After seeing it, various Twitter users started creating parodies of the album and spreading it around. As time went on, Kanye released yet another cover [2], asking which one was better. There has not been an official decision yet.

  • 02/11/16--21:47: The Life of Pablo
  • Overview

    The Life of Pablo is the Kanye West’s seventh’s studio album. The album was heavily promoted by both the record labels responsible for releasing it and also West himself. In addition, several separate controversies surrounding the album’s content, release, and title caused a great deal of online discussion.

    Background

    Early reports of a new album surfaced in late 2013[2], when he began to record, and reports claimed the rapper was hoping to have his new album out by summer 2014. Although est did not put out any music in 2014, there were additional reports of a new album, titled So Help Me God with a release date unknown on March 1st, 2015[1]. A song West performed in February 2015 during Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary, titled “Wolves,” was also named to the album’s track list[3].

    In May 2015, West announced he was changing the name of the album to SWISH, but also stated that he was open to other names as well.[4] In January 2016, West released three tracks, with only one of them being on the album, “Facts, No More Parties in L.A.” (originally in the album’s tracklist, but cut last minute) and “Real Friends”. West also announced SWISH was to be released in the following month, and also changed the name of the album to Waves. This name didn’t last long; on February 9th, three days before the album’s expected release date, he changed the name again, to The Life of Pablo; at the same time, he also offered free tickets to a fashion show and live performance of his album to celebrate the release of his new line of clothing, Yeezy Season 3, and the chance to win a pair of his Yeezy shoes. The album was officially released February 12th, 2016.

    Notable Developments

    Due to massive hype, both intentional and not, much controversy has surrounded the album’s release.

    Wiz Khalifa Beef / #KanyeAnalPlaylist

    On January 27th, 2016, West revealed in a tweet that his upcoming album would be titled Waves. In response to West’s announcement, Wiz Khalifa, Pittsburgh-based rapper who has had a child with West’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, tweeted “Please don’t take the wave" in an effort to credit another rapper, Max B, for popularizing “wavy-ness” as a slang term.


    Max B number one trending. FREETHEWAVE.— KOE (@wizkhalifa)


    Max B is the wavy one. He created the wave. There is no wave without him.— KOE (@wizkhalifa)


    Khalifa then tweeted “Hit this kk and become yourself,” suggesting West to come up with more of an original album title by smoking marijuana, which Khalifa and his fans have often referred to as KK, or short for “Khalifa Kush.” West, apparently unaware of this shorthand lingo, misinterpreted this tweet as a diss towards his wife Kim Kardashian, and fired back with a series of 31 tweets that took Khalifa’s personal style, music, and relationship with West’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose to task.

    Amber Rose, observing that she was involved in the fight between her two ex-boyfriends, took Khalifa’s side, tweeting “Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur asshole anymore? #FingersInTheBootyAssBitch.” In two days, the tweet received 286,269 retweets and 336,450 likes. The next day, West denied that the couple had engaged in anal play, as Rose had alleged. However, Rose’s tweet led to the development of the hashtag #KanyeAnalPlaylist, which Twitter users assigned to tweets that imagined songs that West and Rose would have listened to during intercourse.



    Handwritten Tracklist

    On January 25th, 2016, West tweeted out a handwritten track list of the album, claiming he was “so happy to be finished with the greatest album of all time.” The tweet gained over 150,000 retweets and 200,000 likes.



    West proceeded to tweet two more versions of the list, showing the same piece of paper as it acquired the signatures of West’s collaborators and friends, including A$AP Rocky, Chance The Rapper, 2 Chainz, Earl Sweatshirt, Kylie Jenner, and many others. Collected, the 3 tweets received just under 300,000 retweets, and just under 400,000 likes.

    New York Fashion Week Presentation and Album Preview

    On February 1st, directly following the brief feud with Wiz Khalifa, West announced that he would be premiering the album at a February 11th listening party at the New York City basketball arena Madison Square Garden at an event which would also serve as the presentation of his fashion line, Yeezy, for New York Fashion Week. According to West, the event, called “Yeezy Season 3,” sold out in minutes; many more attempted to watch a crashing stream on Tidal. The presentation was arranged by the artist Vanessa Beecroft and featured nearly 100 models on a stage and on the floor of Madison Square Garden wearing clothing from the Yeezy line and posing. Kanye made an announcement and plugged in his laptop, debuting The Life of Pablo for the world.

    In addition to the people present in Madison Square Garden, the stream was viewed by more than 20 million people live. A reporter from Complex Magazine tweeted the rules that the models were supposed to follow, which was heavily reported by the media.



    Martin Shkreli Purchase Offer

    Following Kanye West’s dual fashion show and album performance, infamous entrepreneur Martin Shkreli tweeted at Kanye about his interest in purchasing exclusive rights to the album for 10 million dollars.[6]



    The report received backlash, and including a dedicated episode by Youtube reporter DJ Akademiks.



    Taylor Swift Lyrics

    On the song “Famous,” which debuted along with the album, West recites the following lyrics about pop star Taylor Swift, an allusion to the Kanye Interrupts incident.

    For all my Southside niggas that know me best
    I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex
    Why? I made that bitch famous
    God damn
    I made that bitch famous

    West immediately faced backlash for the lyrics, which many called crude and mysoginist. As a response, West used Twitter to claim that he had obtained prior approval from both Swift and her team; however, Swift’s publicist denied that she had prior knowledge of the lyric and that she had warned West to not release a misogynist song.

    Overview

    The 2016 Gravitational Wave Observation refers to the first direct observation of gravitational waveforms announced by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) in mid February 2016. The observation came from a signal received in September 2015 of a binary black hole merger matching predictions from Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity.

    Background

    In 1916, physicist Albert Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves as part of his theory of general relativity, claiming that ripples in the curvature of spacetime travel through the universe away from their origin. In 1974, the first indirect evidence if the waveform was observed in the motion of the star system PSR B1913+16. In August 2002, LIGO began operations to detect gravitational waves, maintaining observatories in Livingston, Louisiana and Richland, Washington. For the next eight years, LIGO failed to observe gravitational waves and was shut down for several years to replace detectors. On February 13th, 2015, several LIGO scientists participated in an “ask me anything” (AMA) thread on the /r/science[1] subreddit. On September 14th, the upgraded detectors received a signal of two black holes merging together approximately 1.3 billion light-years away in the Southern Celestial Hemisphere. On January 11th, 2016, theoretical physicist Lawrence M. Krauss tweeted that “gravitational waves may have been discovered” (shown below).[2]



    That day, Redditor boilerdam submitted the tweet to /r/Physics.[3] On February 11th, 2016, LIGO officially announced the first direct detection of gravitational waves from the signal.

    Notable Developments

    Online Reaction

    That day, several threads about the observation reached the front page of Reddit, including posts on /r/explainlikeimfive,[4] /r/worldnews,[5] /r/space[6] /r/science[7] and /r/askscience[8] subreddits. Meanwhile, Redditor askLubich posted an animation titlted “How LIGO detected gravitational waves” to /r/educationalgifs (shown below).



    On Twitter, United States President Barack Obama congratulated LIGO and the National Science Foundation on the discovery (shown below).[16]



    Also on February 11th, PBS Space Time YouTube channel posted a video about the discovery, garnering upwards of 250,000 views and 1,900 comments.



    Meanwhile, Xkcd[17] published a comic about the detection titled “Gravitational Waves,” which mocked intrusive notifications on social media services (shown below).



    News Media Coverage

    In the coming days, many news sites reported on the gravitational wave observation, including The New York Times,[9] Ars Technica,[10]USA Today,[11] Wired,[12] The Washington Post,[13] Scientific American[14] and The Atlantic.[15]

  • About

    “It’s Time to Stop" is a memorable quote uttered by YouTube personality Filthy Frank in an exploitable green screen video that was uploaded in late December 2015. The video, which shows Filthy Frank walking into a green screen set with an oversized clock and yelling out the phrase, has inspired a series of remix videos from his fans.

    Origin

    The green screen videos come from a video uploaded on December 24, 2015 by one of the alternate channels of Filthy Frank, saying that many people had asked him for greenscreens, leading to him uploading various greenscene shots to the channel and to his website for free use. The most popular greenscreen is the “It’s Time to Stop” shot, which has Frank shaking a large clock repeatedly saying “It’s time to stop”, which received over 800,000 views.



    Spread

    The first videos regarding the meme were both uploaded on December 25, 2015 by YouTubers Popsicle Juice and Creepypasta Archives (shown below, respectively), both compilations of all the greenscreens available for download from Frank’s website. Within the days following, multiple edits of the scenes were uploaded to YouTube[1] as well as multiple edits of the “It’s time to stop” shot[2], with the most popular video featuring the shot uploaded by YouTuber Pyrocynical on January 1 2016, garnering a little over 400,000 as of February 2016. The phrase “it’s time to stop” also has multiple results on Tumblr relating to the greenscreen shot[3].

  • [Chorus:]
    Crawling in my skin
    These wounds they will not heal
    Fear is how I fall
    Confusing what is real

    There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
    Consuming, confusing
    This lack of self-control I fear is never ending
    Controlling. I can’t seem…

    [Bridge:]
    To find myself again
    My walls are closing in
    (without a sense of confidence and I’m convinced that there’s just too much pressure to take)
    I’ve felt this way before
    So insecure

    [Chorus]

    Discomfort endlessly has pulled itself upon me
    Distracting, reacting
    Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
    It’s haunting how I can’t seem…

    [Bridge]

    [Chorus]

    [Chorus]

    There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the surface consuming,
    Confusing what is real.
    This lack of self-control I fear is never ending controlling,
    Confusing what is real.

  • 02/14/16--23:06: Hentai
  • About

    Hentai refers to a subgenre of manga and anime involving sexually explicit images and plot[1].

    History

    {WIP}
    Terminology dates it around the Meiji era with the usage in science and psychology. It wasn’t until a German Sexologist translated the word as “perverse or sexual desire” that it gained the definition it has today.

    After the end of WWII, a new erotic interest sparked in Japan. During the U.S. occupation Mark McLelland observed when Hentai was shortened just to “H” it was pronounced “ecchi” (etchi) as a lesser connotation of it’s original definition[2].

    One of the first works to be defined as hentai was Lolita Anime, a Lolicon anime, in 1984[2].

  • About

    Front Zipper Suimsuit (Japanese: フロントジッパー競泳水着; Front Zipper Kyōei Mizugi) is a high-necked swimsuit which features a double zipper in the front. Following on Keyhole Turtleneck in the end of 2014, this sexy swimsuit became to a popular fetish item for moe illustrators in the Japanese otaku culture in the spring of 2015.

    Origin

    According to Pixiv Encyclopedia[1] and Nico Nico Pedia,[2] this fetish meme started on Twitter by the official account of Japanese fetish sports costume brand REALISE[3] in March 6th, 2015. The tweet, introducing its new product, named “Front Zipper Swimsuit for Competitive Swimming,” accompied by several pictures, had earned over thousands of retweets and favorites within the first few hours due to its overt sexiness.


    Translation:

    Finally! Here comes the front zipper swimsuit! It must eliminate all follies to rip the front of swimsuits! (lol

    The following day, the Twitter account revealed their product had already been nicknamed as “That Swimsuit,”[4] which was influenced by both That Pool, an iconic location in Japanese pornography due to its frequent usage as a set; and That Turtleneck, an alias for the Keyhole Turtleneck.



    Spread

    Just the same as an online craze for that sexy sweater in the previous year, Front Zipper Swimsuit soon inspired many amateur illustrators, and a vast amount of moe illustrations featuring this sexy swimsuit began flooding on online illustrators communities Pixiv[5] and Nico Nico Seiga.[6] Though it didn’t last so long because of the advent of Hestia’s Boob Ribbon in the following month, this online fetish fad was reported by Pixiv’s art news section Pixiv Spotlight[7], several Japanese online gossip news media[8][9] as well as English news blog Rocketnews24[10] and Taiwanese online news media gammenews in later.[11] And the swimsuit has still remained as one of the popular sexy costumes for moe illustrations and cosplayers.
