    << … Rhythmic Exercise Should Be Widely Disseminated. >> Kim Jong Il

    About

    North Korean Rhythmic Exercise, usually called “Rhythmic Exercise” (Korean: 율동체조, Yuldong chejo or 률동체조, Ryuldong chejo; Japanese: 律動体操, Ritsudou Taiso), refers to a series of calisthenics produced by the Korean Workers’ Party in the 1990s. The video clips were been popular visual resources for audio-dubbing parodies in the early days of niconico Douga (niconico).

    Origin

    According to the Korean Wikipedia’s article[1] and a Korean Central Television program called “The Love to the people is also in the rhythmic exercise” (KCTV)[2] aired in August 2015,[3][4][5] this exercise series was ordered by order of Kim Jong-il in March of 1993 as an improved version of similar exercises in Kim Il-sung era, People’s Health Exercise (인민보건체조), at the North Korean Sports Science Center. After the release of the “adults” version of the video, 4 more rhythmic exercises, for children, elders, toddlers and babies, were released serially in the 1990s. Its soundtracks, except for the toddlers version, are played by Wangjaesan Light Music Band.[6] These official tutorial movies for the exercises are still aired on KCTV in 2010s.

    The Korean Workers’ Party also created several sports-themed rhythmic exercises (Basketball, Soccer and Wrestling versions) during Kim Jong-un era.

    Spread

    In late 2002, North Korean rhythmic exercise videos began being aired on the Japanese Television show Black Wide Show[7] which often picked up KCTV’s news and propaganda footage for fun. A few years later, the videos became fodder for video remixes and parodies on YouTube and niconico. Particularly, the children version had been often used for audio-dubbing videos which mashup its footage with anime or video game music between 2007 and 2011.[8][9]

  • 02/13/17--13:17: argh (Broomy's Corner)
  • James Broome is a British teen, and personality “Broomy”, icon of “Broomy’s Corner”. Broomy’s Corner started as an in-joke between classmates from his school, however it slowly began to gain viewers from outside sources, gaining a fan base across the United Kingdom, and slowly across other regions including America.

    Two months after the channel’s creation, the now deleted “Rebellion of the Broom” channel came onto Youtuber. This channel lasted over a 48 hour span before being deleted by the channel owner. Within the 24 hours of this channel’s existence, multiple videos were uploaded to the channel before being shut down. The channel always implied two people were in charge of the channel, these people going by the names “The Voice” and “rofl xd”, each of whom used Bonzi Buddy as their appearance.
    On the final day of the channel’s existence, a video titled “The End” was uploaded to the channel, crediting each owner of the team to their role, while also acknowledging the third parties who helped produce content for the channel.

    The Rebellion of the Broom was a large part of the original channel’s growth, earning it over 50 subscribers in the two days, boosting it from below 70 to 125. A large part of this was collaborating parodies together, such as Review Movie World with Broomy’s Corner.

    Growth of the channel slowed after the Rebellion’s disappearance, and the true identities of the owners are still unknown. Broomy’s Corner slowed down the uploads after the Rebellion appeared, however uploads did continue on the channel although they never talked about the Rebellion.

    The Lorax is a children’s book written by Dr. Seuss and first published in 1971. It chronicles the plight of the environment and the Lorax, who speaks for the trees against the Once-ler. As in most Dr. Seuss works, most of the creatures mentioned are original to the book.

    History

    2012 Film

    The Lorax is a 2012 American computer-animated 3D musical fantasy comedy film produced by Illumination Entertainment and based on Dr. Seuss’s children’s book of the same name

    Online Presence

    Reception

    Based on a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association named The Lorax one of its “Teachers’ Top 100 Books for Children”. In 2012 it was ranked number 33 among the “Top 100 Picture Books” in a survey published by School Library Journal the second of five Dr. Seuss books on the list. In a retrospective critique written in the journal Nature in 2011 upon the 40th anniversary of the book’s publication, Emma Marris described the Lorax character as a “parody of a misanthropic ecologist”. She called the book “gloomy” and doubted it was good for young children. Nevertheless, she praised the book overall, and especially Seuss for understanding “the limits of gloom and doom” environmentalism.

    But after the 2012 release, in which the Once-ler character was suddenly personified and obtained a face and a back-story, something a bit out of the norm happened: A large a sporadic fan-base grew up overnight from Tumblr and invaded both DeviantArt and YouTube with thousands of articles, blogs, cosplay, gifs, fan-fic and fan videos related to the character. Currently 5,500 posts under Once-ler and 8,500 under Lorax exist on DeviantArt. 1,990,000 results came up when searching “The Once-ler” on Google.
    The National Anthem of the fandom is without a doubt “How bad can I be” which was featured in the movie.

  • 02/06/17--18:32: Antifa
  • About

    Antifa is the modern name for Anti-fascism, the more militant movement of the left that stands in opposition to fascist ideologies, often with violent methods.

    History

    Anti-fascism started in Italy with the creation of organizations such as Arditi del Popolo and the Italian Anarchist Union following World War I in order to combat the nationalist and fascist surge in the country.[1]

    Spread

    In the years leading up to World War II, the Italian movement began to spread into the Balkans and Albania, while anti-fascist groups started in Germany, Spain, France, and the United Kingdom.

    In the United States, anti-fascist groups began in opposition to organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan and the Friends of New Germany. During the Red Scare, a post-WWII witch hunt for communist sympathizers, being anti-fascist “prematurely” (before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor) was cause for suspicion.

    Post-Trump Antifa

    Following the presidential election of Donald Trump, anti-fascist groups, commonly known as Antifa, began garnering mainstream attention for their response to certain events, particularly the Punch of Richard Spencer. The event started a national dialogue on what was acceptable resistance in the face of white nationalism. Antifa groups made waves again when they protested alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos speaking at UC Berkeley. That led to a profile of the Antifa movement on Wired,[2] who investigated the online war between Antifa groups and Neo-Nazis.

    Bash the Fash

    Bash the Fash is a phrase used by antifascists advocating violence as an acceptable form of resistance against fascism. Although the phrase had been a slogan for antifascist groups since at least the 1980’s it saw a resurgence after Richard Spencer was punched in the face.

    About

    Justin Trudeau’s Handshake With Donald Trump is a photoshop meme based on a Reuters photograph of the United States President reaching out for a handshake with the Canadian Prime Minister during their summit at the White House in February 2017.

    Origin

    On February 13th, 2017, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the White House for a first time face-to-face meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump. During a photo op before the press members, Trump reached his hand out for a handshake and Trudeau reciprocated by shaking his hand while facing the camera. While the moment went unnoticed in video, a photograph taken by Reuters photographer Kevin Lamarque captured an awkward split-second of Trudeau seemingly gazing at Trump’s hand, which made it seem as if the prime minister was contemplating on whether to shake his hand.



    As many TV and internet news outlets broke their reports on the first face-to-face summit, the Reuters photograph instantly grabbed the attention of the readers, and by quarter after noon, a handful of people on Twitter[2][3] had already started cracking jokes about the awkwardly timed photograph.



    Spread

    At 12:22 p.m., VICE Noisey editor Kim Kelly[3] tweeted the photograph with the caption “Today, we are all Justin Trudeau,” garnering more than 1,691 likes and 2,500 retweets in less than 12 hours.



    At 12:29 p.m. (EST), Redditor Cleantoe submitted the photograph to the /r/PhotoshopBattles subreddit[6] in a post titled “Canadian PM Justin Trudeau hesitating to shake Donald Trump’s hand.” Throughout the afternoon, dozens of Justin Trudeau’s imagined monologues and photoshopped parodies, including jokes about Trump’s "small hand ":/memes/trump-s-small-hand reputation, continued to crop up and spread on Twitter[5] and Reddit[6], which was subsequently picked up by various news outlets in virtually all English-speaking regions.[7][8][9][10][11][12]
