  • 03/01/17--08:54: Gary From Chicago
  • About

    Gary From Chicago is a person who achieved viral fame after appearing on screen during a segment at the 2017 Academy Awards. Soon after, it was discovered that he had been released from prison three days prior to the segment, creating a moment similar to Ken Bone’s Reddit AMA in which the history of a person who becomes a meme sparked a dialogue.

    Origin

    At the 2017 Academy Awards, Jimmy Kimmel did a segment where he brought in actual Los Angeles tourists into the Oscars. He brought several to the front of the stage and introduced them to famous actors. One was Gary Alan Coe, identified as “Gary From Chicago,” whose fiancee Vickie featured in the Ryan Gosling Whispering meme from that night. During the segment, Coe kissed actress Nicole Kidman’s hand in a video captures by her husband, Keith Urban (shown below).


    Spread

    The internet quickly took to celebrating Coe. #GaryFromChicago[1] began to trend on Twitter as users jokes about his outfit (a “Hollywood” hoodie), his pink cell-phone case, the way he held his tongue out as he took pictures, and the fact that when Kimmel joked with him that he was “ignoring the white actors,” he replied “Yes, I am.”



    Gary became an overnight sensation, as The Washington Post[2] and The New York Times[3] both wrote articles about him, and several Chicago establishments attempted to offer Coe free merchandise.

    History

    Soon, reports about Gary’s history began to surface. He was released from prison, where he had been serving a 25-to-life sentence, three days prior to his Oscars appearance.[4] The convictions against Coe included petty theft in 1997 for stealing perfume, two grand-theft and two shoplifting convictions. He is also on California’s sex-offenders list for attempted rape by force or fear in 1997. This led to people pushing back against Gary From Chicago as a meme, while others defended him as a man with a past who had served his time. The A.V. Club posted both viewpoints in the same article, initially posting an article about Gary that decried his criminal past before updating the article to “celebrate Coe’s moment.”[5]

    About

    Shirtless Alex Jones at Lunch refers to an image of conservative talk show host Alex Jones eating lunch without his shirt on that sparked jokes on Twitter.

    Precursor

    Alex Jones is known for posing without his shirt on on his social media channels in an effort to showcase his physique. Esquire[1] published a compilation of such images in October of 2016, following a picture of Jones posting a picture of himself posing shirtless on top of a horse.



    He also notably ripped off his shirt on his television show while ranting about Hillary Clinton.



    Origin

    On February 28th, 2017, German magazine Der Spiegel[2] published an article about Alex Jones. For their header image, they used an image of Jones posing shirtless while eating lunch and giving the camera two thumbs up (shown below). According to the article, Jones took off his shirt without explanation.

    “It’s afternoon, and Jones is walking through the studio, his adrenaline level high and his blood sugar low. He needs to get something to eat. Platters of BBQ– chicken, beef and sausages – are set out on a table in the conference room. “Good barbecue,” says Jones. “You tasted it already?”
    He piles up food onto a plastic plate, and then he suddenly takes off his shirt without explanation. With his bare torso, he sits there and shovels meat into his mouth, a caricature of manliness, but also a show of power to the reporter sitting in front of him. He can do as he pleases.
    Then Jones gets up and holds out a sausage. “Wanna suck?” he asks.



    Spread

    The image quickly became the target for jokes on Twitter, as users wrote captions for it and photoshopped it to include Jones in various other scenarios. The tweets were compiled in a Twitter Moment[3] the following day. On Reddit, Isai76[4] posted the picture with the comment “Alex Jones has the ‘hot dogs defrosting in the sink’ vibe” and gained 64 points. In the coming days, several news sites published articles about the online reaction to the shirtless photograph, including AOL News,[5] Gothamist,[6] Death and Taxes,[7] and Queerty.[8]

Wikia hosts several hundred thousand wikis using the open-source wiki software, MediaWiki.

    History

    Wikia was launched on October 18, 2004, under the name “Wikicities” (which invited comparisons to GeoCities), but changed its name to “Wikia” on March 27, 2006. In the month before the move, Wikia announced a US$4 million venture capital investment from Bessemer Venture Partners and First Round Capital. Nine months later, Amazon.com invested US$10 million[citation needed] in Series B funding.

    By July 2007, it had more than 3,000 wikis in more than 50 languages. Over time Wikia has incorporated formerly independent wikis that joined Wikia, such as LyricWiki, The Vault, Uncyclopedia and WoWWiki. Gil Penchina described Wikia early on as “the rest of the library and magazine rack” to Wikipedia’s encyclopedia.

  • 03/02/17--08:38: Retire Bitch
  • About

    Retire Bitch is an expression often used on Twitter to insult politicians and urge them to end their careers. It is used similarly to other online colloquialisms such as Delete Your Account or kill yourself.

    Origin

    On March 3rd, 2013, Danny Devito tweeted[1]“Antonin Scalia retire bitch”, referring to the late United States Supreme Court Justice. The tweet has gained over 5,500 retweets in four years.



    Spread

    Devito’s tweet quickly became has become a favorite of Weird Twitter. However, it wasn’t until the 2016 United States Presidential Election that it grew into a popular phrase to tweet at various people, particularly politicians, one doesn’t like. One of the earliest examples came from @cushbomb[2] of Chapo Trap House, who on November 10th tweeted at various democrats and political opinion writers “retire bitch” (shown below).



    The phrase appeared with increasing frequency over the following four months, generally tweeted at old white men in government, and particularly those involved in a scandal. For example, after it was discovered that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had apparently lied under oath during his Senate confirmation when he denied he had been in contact with Russian diplomats during the election (he had in fact met with two ambassadors), Twitter saw a sharp uptick in “Jeff Sessions retire bitch” tweets.



    In his piece on the phrase, New York Magazine’s[3] Brian Feldman theorized that the phrase has grown in frequency among left-leaning Weird Twitter since the election because like Scalia, many important members of the United States government are currently elderly old, white, and conservative.

    Origin

    On March 1st, 2017, far-right Twitter user @polNewsNetwork1, whose name riffs on 4chan’s notoriously far-right /pol/ board, tweeted[1] a photograph of a woman wearing a burka and a man in drag sitting next to each other on the subway with the caption “This is the future that liberals want” (shown below).

While @polNewsNetwork1 intended to show a world filled with Muslims and homosexuals, two historically conservative targets of derision and discrimination, many viewed interpreted the picture showing two people with starkly different political beliefs expressed via their dress coexisting peacefully (ex: shown below).



    While the tweet spread around left-leaning Twitter as people made jokes confirming that good public transit and religious freedom is exactly what they want, people began making fun of it by writing “This is the future that liberals want” and adding their own pictures.



    Both the reaction and memes inspired by @polNewsNetwork1’s tweet were covered by Twitter Moments[2] and Buzzfeed[3] the afternoon of March 2nd.

  • This article is a WIP. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    About

    Felix the Cat is an anthropomorphic black cat created in 1919 by Otto Messmer [1] and produced by Pat Sullivan until his death on Feburary 15th, 1933 [2]. Appearing originally in silent black & white films and later comic strips, he was one of the first popular animated cartoon characters [3].

    History

    Black and White Era (1919-1930)

    Since his debut in the short Feline Follies, Felix the Cat featured in 168 silent shorts until his transition to sound in 1928 with the reissuing of Arabantics[4].



    Comic Strips

    [this section will be filled later as finding information regarding it, is difficult]

    RKO/Colour (1936)

    In 1936, RKO released 3 Felix the Cat films: The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg, Neptune Nonsense and Bold King Cole[4]. The most notable change was the addition of colour.





    Felix the Cat (1958-1961)

    Created by Felix the Cat Productions Inc. in 1958 [5], it served as a revival of the character since his RKO releases. The series introduced primary antagonists to the franchise, with the inclusion of the Poindexter, The Professor and Rock Bottom. The Magic Bag became an associated item of Felix after it debut in the pilot Felix the Cat – Magic Bag of Tricks



    Felix the Cat – The Movie (1988)

    Made by Felix the Cat Creations, Animation Film Cologne and Felix the Cat Productions Inc., this marked the first theatrical film for Felix the Cat. It was widely panned by film critics and audiences alike and was classed as a box office bomb (failing to surpass its $9,000,000 budget). It currently holds a 5.1/10 rating on IMDb[6].



    The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat (1995-1997)

    Created by Felix the Cat Productions Inc. and Film Roman Productions in 1995 [7], the series served as a rather surreal take on the character. It makes reference to its preceding works quite often with plot-lines and characters featured in earlier works appearing. Instead of being the conventional cartoon, it opted with a more bizarre and adult approach.

  • The ‘’Sub to AlaawiiGames’’ meme is when someone out of nowhere just says ‘’sub to alaawiigames’’ randomly with no context, no nothing, and people laugh. Well, most do.

  • About

    Moana is a 2016 American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy comedy adventure film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. It is the 56th Disney animated feature film. The film was directed by Ron Clements and John Musker and co-directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams. The film features music written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opetaia Foa’i, and Mark Mancina.

    History

    After directing The Princess and the Frog (2009), Clements and Musker started working on an adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Mort, but problems with acquiring the necessary film rights prevented them from continuing with that project. To avoid a recurrence of that issue, they pitched three original ideas. The genesis of one of those ideas (the one that was ultimately green-lighted) occurred in 2011, when Musker began reading up on Polynesian mythology, and learned of the heroic exploits of the demigod Maui. Intrigued with the rich culture of Polynesia, he felt it would be a suitable subject for an animated film. Shortly thereafter, Musker and Clements wrote a treatment and pitched it to John Lasseter, who recommended that both of them should go on research trips.



    Reception

    As of March 1, 2017, Moana has grossed $246.2 million in the U.S. and Canada and $334.9 million in other countries for a worldwide total of $581.1 million. On January 22, 2017, the film reached the $500 million mark, becoming the fourth consecutive Walt Disney Animation Studios film to reach the milestone after Frozen (2013), Big Hero 6 (2014), and Zootopia (2016). Although Disney has not disclosed the film’s production budget, most of its animated films cost around $150 million.
