The clock was originally conceived to represent the threat of nuclear disaster.

    On January 18th, 2013, the DNews YouTube channel uploaded an episode discussing the Doomsday Clock (shown below).



    On January 22nd, 2015, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists posted an update that the clock had been moved to three minutes to midnight amid concerns about the threat of global climate change, nuclear weapons in Russia and the United States and issues related to nuclear waste disposal.[2] On March 14th, 2016, Xkcd[5] released a comic titled “Doomsday Clock” (shown below).

    Ceci N’est Pas Une Pipe Parodies are a series of images parodying René Magritte’s La trahison des images (“The Treachery of Images”), a famous painting in which Magritte drew an image of a tobacco pipe he captioned “Ceci n’est pas une pipe,” which translates to “This is Not a Pipe.”

    Origin

    In 1928, Magritte began working on “The Treachery of Images.”[1] The painting became famous for its meta message, making the viewer aware that what it is seeing depicted in art is merely a representation of the thing itself. In a Magritte biography by Harry Torczyner, Magritte is quoted as saying:

    The famous pipe. How people reproached me for it! And yet, could you stuff my pipe? No, it’s just a representation, is it not? So if I had written on my picture ‘This is a pipe’, I’d have been lying!

  • 02/02/17--07:39: Twintail Day
  • Overview

    In Japan, February 2nd is designated as the Twintail Day (Japanese: ツインテールの日). Since 2012, internet users and even professional female models/idols have annually celebrated the day for the otaku-beloved hairstyle on Twitter and other social networking services.

    Background

    Twintail, also called as Bunches[1] or Pigtails[2], is considered as one of the representative hairstyles in the otaku culture due to its frequently appearances in anime/manga/video game titles after 1990s. Particularly, it’s said that the historical success of Sailor Moon series in that decade led the hairstyle to the most popular one by the main character Usagi Tsukino / Sailor Moon. Meanwhile, this hairstyle also became to be popular in the real world’s pop culture because of the rise of Japanese female idol scene throughout 1990s-2000s.



    Against a backdrop of a large presence of Twintail in pop/otaku culture, Kan Furuya, Japanese fashion designer/photographer and the president of a company Laugh Valley, launched a general incorporated association for the hairstyle, Japan TwinTail Association, in December 2011. In the following month, he also registered February 2nd as the Twintail Day to Japan Anniversary Association which licenses any kinds of anniversaries by paying registration fee. A document published on JAA’s website explains the reason of the designation: The day has two “2” which means “Twin”.[3]

    Notable Developments

    On February 2nd, 2012, Japan TwinTail Association opened its official website TwinTail Project Japan[4] which featured the hairstyle by young female idols/models photos mostly shoot by Furuya, who also took on the chairman of the association, and began promoting the anniversary day. The launch of the unique association was reported by Japanese online gossip news media[5] as well as later covered in English articles by Anime News Network[6], Kotaku[7] and Culture Japan.[8] But it had to wait the day of the following year to took off as an actual anniversary associated with user activities on social networking services. Since 2013, Twitter users have been posting Twintail selfies or cosplay photos with a hashtag #ツインテールの日[9], and a vast amount of illustrations have been uploaded to Pixiv[10] and Nico Nico Seiga[11] for celebrating the day. In addition, professional models and idols also become to participate to the celebration on Twitter and Instagram[12] along with popularization of the anniversary day in the mid-2010s.

    Also, Twintail Day has gradually spread on the English-speaking web. Its English hashtag #twintailday has been used for celebrating the day on Twitter since around 2015.[13]
