  • 12/29/16--14:04: EDM
  • About

    Electronic Dance Music (commonly abbreviated as EDM) is term that represents a wide range of electronically produced music, whose genres are generally determined by percussion based instrumentals as opposed to vocals.[1] It is often performed live in clubs or at festivals by DJs, to masses of people who dance and/or rave to the mixes the DJs play. With a multitude of sub genres, EDM has been a mainstay in popular culture over the years through pop radio stations and through internet meme culture, with multiple memes that have been spawned by the artists and fanbases attached to the music and its multitude of sub genres.

    Origin and History

    EDM had its beginnings in the late 1970s with the advent of disco in pop music. Over the decades, the scene of electronic music grew, with new genres being pioneered, from Electro and House in the 1980s, to Drum & Bass, Trance, and Hard Dance in the 1990s, to 21st century genres of Trap, Future Bass, and recently Vaporwave.



    Giorgio Moroder’s “Knight’s in White Satin” is one of the earliest known examples of EDM in the form of Disco

    Impact

    EDM’s staying power over the years has been shown through the ever changing landscape of mainstream pop music and pop culture. With the rise of affordable music production software (i.e. Ableton and FL Studio) and the flexible nature of the sub genres of EDM, pop music has often been impacted over the years by sub genres of EDM including, but not limited to Dubstep, Trap, and House music.

    Examples of modern pop music each utilizing a different sub genre of EDM.
    Clockwise; Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were Trouble [Dubstep], Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk (feat. Bruno Mars) [Nu Disco], Ne-Yo – Let Me Love You [House], and Mike Posner – I Took a Pill in Ibiza (SeeB Remix) [Moombahton]

    Criticism

    Despite its growth and staying power in popular culture, much criticism has stemmed over the years for EDM due to the non-organic sound of the music tracks and the criticism of DJs as not being “real musicians” as live, they “only” have to press buttons for the music to play by itself. Much criticism from prominent DJs in the EDM scene is focused on its commercialization, which has been stated by DJs Joel “deadmau5” Zimmerman (who is known for his outspoken opinions on mainstream DJs over the years) and Tim “Avicii” Bergling (who incorporates more natural instruments in his music due to his criticisms of EDM lacking longevity).

    deadmau5’s criticism of commercialized EDM is exemplified in his “remix” of Martin Garrix’s Big Room House track, “Animals.”

    Parodies

    EDM culture has also been parodied before in pop culture as well. An example of such parody comes from an SNL Digital Short “When Will the Bass Drop?” that parodies “fans” of EDM who wait for the DJ to enact the bass drop on his track, as he performs off task endeavors including playing video games, cooking food, and collecting money, before pressing a button that drops the bass of the track, causing the club goers’ heads to explode from the heavy bass.



    Memes

    With the growth of internet culture and EDM over the years, many memes have spawned from music tracks, artists, and genres themselves.

    Dubstep

    Dubstep is a genre of electronic music originating from South London in the late nineties. Though difficult to define, it is generally characterized by a slow tempo, repetitive, low-key beats, heavy emphasis on “wobble” bass lines and hard hitting drum patterns. Dubstep’s mainstream attention in pop culture is often credited to Skrillex, who helped pioneer the heavy hitting sub genre of “Brostep” into the public eye and internet culture.

    Trap

    Trap Music is a music genre known for its use of 808 kick drums, multi-layered synthesizers and generally dark hip-hop sound. Songs like Baauer’s Harlem Shake and DJ Snake’s Turn Down For What have been well recognized in meme culture with the former’s dance craze and the latter’s spastic music video and phrase of the song itself.

    Vaporwave

    Vaporwave is a musical genre inspired by electronic dance music (EDM), New Age music and the indie dance genres chillwave and seapunk. Vaporwave is known for its use of Japanese characters in song titles, 80’s smooth jazz and Muzak samples that have been pitch shifted and time stretched with music editing software. The genre has often been described as a satire of corporate and consumerist culture and modern capitalism, specifically as a critique of mainstream EDM. One of the more prominent examples of Vaporwave utilized in internet culture include Macintosh Plus’ リサフランク420 / 現代のコンピュー off of his album Floral Shoppe (フローラルの専門店).

  • 01/07/17--19:36: Trap Nation/CloudKid Remixes
  • About

    Trap Nation or Cloud Kid remixes are a humorous use of Lucian’s remix of Black Coast’s song “TRNDSTTR” and an instrumental of Atomify’s remix of Marian Hill’s song “Got It”, uploaded to YouTube and Vine. Right before the climactic point of the songs (known as “the drop”), a sound, word, or phrase is played for a split second (usually in accordance to the beat) while the song continues. Occasionally, the song will continue only for another sound, word, or phrase to be placed in. The sounds inserted usually contain screams, explosions, gun shots, or the word n*****. Most of them contain n***** yelled or an animal such as a chicken or a horse being shot.

    Origin

    Both songs were uploaded on November 22nd, 2014 and July 11th, 2016 respectively. Atomify’s remix was originally on popular re-post YouTube channel Trap Nation, however it was taken down. Atomify later uploaded it to his personal channel.
    [First uses of songs in vines are unknown]

    Spread

    While both songs were originally uploaded to Trap Nation and CloudKid, two popular music related YouTube channels, both songs became most popular on Vine due to their brief nature. Vine account “the foxy llama” uploaded a Vine in April containing meme OH YEAH MR KRABS interspersed with the TRNDSTTR remix which recieved almost 1,000,000 loops, and 25,000 likes along with being featured in many Vine compilations (see below). Both tracks were incredibly popular with the “TRNDSTTR” remix has around 56,000,000 on YouTube.

    About

    It Was At This Moment That X Knew He F****d Up, also simply known as “He F****d Up” videos, is a catchphrase and snowclone associated with Fail videos that have been parodied to include a black and white freeze frame just before something goes painfully awry and a narrator delivering the line with a slow and deep voice.
    While it started as a Vine series, it gained notoriety as a popular audio exploitable used in many parodies featuring people, well, “f*****g things up”.

    Origin

    On September 14th, 2013, Vine voiceover artist McCully Quinn posted a short clip entitled “Jonathan fucked up..”[1] (shown below).



    It features a young man trying to slide on a ramp with a scooter. When he is about to fall down, the clip cuts to a black and white freeze frame while Quinn utters the line: “It was at this moment that Jonathan knew he fucked up”. Then, the rest of the clip shows the result of the impending impact.
    As of January 2017, it accumulated to over 1 600 loops and 1 900 likes on the site.
    While not being an instant viral success on the site, Quinn continued to create parodies with the same formula, using various random names such as “William” (shown below, left) and “Daniel” (shown below, right). They became a lasting series on Vine and Quinn’s own signature joke.



    Spread

    [WIP]

    On YouTube, Quinn reuploaded most of his parodies starting on October 23th, 2013[2]. As of January 2017, the channel gathered over 80 parodies, with the compilations of his best Vine videos gaining over 1 800 000 (shown below, left), 1 300 000 (shown below, middle) and 100 000 (shown below, right) views, respectively.



    On January 11th, 2014, YouTube user Random--〉What´s next? uploaded a compilation of segments taken from various movies in which a protagonist gets pwned (shown below, left), using the same audio and freeze frame format. It has gathered over 300 000 views over the next three years. Over two years later, on July 31st, 2016, user The Real Neal posted another compilation, this time with anime characters (shown below right), accumulating to over 17 000 views in the next six months.

  • 12/29/16--20:52: Uncle Grandpa
  • About

    Uncle Grandpa is an American animated television series created by Peter Browngardt for Cartoon Network that premiered on the network on September 2, 2013. The series is based on Browngardt’s animated short of the same name from The Cartoonstitute. Uncle Grandpa is also a spin-off of Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, which was in turn a spin-off of the Cartoonstitute short. It is produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

    History

    The Uncle Grandpa pilot was created by former Chowder storyboard artist Peter Browngardt in 2008, but aired online in 2009 on Cartoon Network Video as part of The Cartoonstitute. Akin to the Regular Show pilot, the Uncle Grandpa pilot was successful, but it had yet to have been green-lit into its own series.In 2011, the TV series Secret Mountain Fort Awesome (based on the creatures that appear in the original short) aired on Cartoon Network, but was not as well-received as the other Cartoon Network series at the time, and was eventually put on hiatus in February 2012. Despite the failure, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome went on to win several awards, including the coveted Crystal Award for “Best Television Production” at Annecy International Animated Film Festival, the first US-based production to do so. This helped boost Browngardt’s profile in getting Uncle Grandpa greenlit as a series.[9] Finally, another factor that has contributed to the launch of the show was the redesign of the character by John Kricfalusi, The Ren & Stimpy Show’s creator.On July 27 and 28, 2013, Cartoon Network aired a sneak peek of the series as part of Big Fan Weekend, along with Clarence and Steven Universe.

  • About

    Stu, A gross is 144 eggs is a Tumblr Post that features Stu Pickles ordering a Gross of eggs and somehow not realizing that a gross is 144 eggs. This sparked a post to have multiple edits and gain quick popularity.

    Origins

    The scene is from Episode 5b on Season 3 of Rugrats titled “the Stork” aired on Oct 24, 1993, on Nickelodeon. The first source of the meme showing up is a video that was posted on Jun 13, 2010

    On May 11, 2016, a Tumblr user by the name of omny87[1] made a post about how much chances Stu would have to realize his mistake.

    Stu, let me ask you a question: how did you not realize until then that you had too many eggs? Nobody sells eggs in a big cloth-covered basket, so you must have done that yourself. That means you spent god-knows-how-long opening up twelve whole cartons of eggs, carefully placing each egg one-by-one inside a big basket, and then covering it with a big picnic cloth… and at no point- at no point- did you ever stop and think “gee, there might be TOOMANYFUCKINGEGGS HERE”

    You really have lost control of your life.

    Mexico is experiencing an unparalleled crisis. Looting of self-service stores and small businesses in popular areas, and campaigns in social networks that promote violence and fear, have appeared during this first week of the year in 29 of the 32 states of the country. The apparent cause of this unusual rebellion with criminal dyes is the sudden increase of more than 20% in the price of gasoline. However, a more detailed analysis of the protests, looting and the management of networks shows a more complex and worrying picture in which they combine from authentic social anger to the frank action of organized crime in the context of a state absolutely Weak and lacking in legitimacy.

    The increase in the price of gasoline took the Mexicans by surprise, already fed up with the government’s inaction in the fight against corruption and the growing unemployment in the south-central part of the country. A sense of boredom, anger, and despair was already perceptible in several states.

  • About

    Tomi Lahren is an American television and online conservative political commentator.[1] She is the host of Tomi on The Blaze. She gained national attention for her conservative commentary during the 2016 United States Presidential Election, as videos of her “Final Thoughts” segments from her show, in which she talks at length about a current events topic, spread widely on social media.

    History

    Lahren first hosted her own show, On Point With Tomi Lahren, on One America News Network beginning in August 2014. There, she began drawing attention following her commentary on the Chattanooga shootings[2] and commentary in which she countered the idea that Republicans are old rich and white by pointing to prominent Democrats, saying, “Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden. Old, rich, white, and if the pantsuit fits … male too?”

    In August 2015, she did her final show with One America News Network and in November of that year began her show with The Blaze. Here, she introduced her “Final Thoughts” segment, which became particularly popular on social media. One of her first segments to draw national attention was her “Final Thoughts” on the Colin Kaepernick National Anthem Controversy, aired in August 2016 (shown below).



    On November 30th, 2016, Lahren appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah for a 26-minute interview segment (shown below).



    While Noah attempted to listen and reason with her, critics noticed that Lahren dominated the segment, reiterating her opinions without regard for Noah’s objections.[3] This led to a divided reaction among liberals. Some praised Noah for his candor in the face of Lahren’s obstinance,[4] while others criticized him for allowing Lahren’s viewpoints to reach their widest audience yet.[5]

    Reputation

    Lahren is known for her controversial, conservative stances on issues, particularly issues of race. She is most known for being anti-Black Lives Matter, and many critics have called her racist, which she disputes.[6] Some critics have even gone so far as to call her “White Power Barbie” and “the next Ann Coulter.”[7]

    Online Presence

    Lahren is very popular on social media, with over 486,000 Twitter followers[8] and over 3.8 million Facebook likes.[9]

    Old Tweets

    On January 9th, 2017, Twitter users began retweeting old Tomi Lahren tweets from when she was a college student.[10] Some of the more popular tweets, some of which Tomi Lahren has since deleted, featured her talking about partying using the hashtag “#popthatp” (short for “pop that pussy”), while in others she complained about summer school and working for her mom.
