  • 06/12/17--20:22: Pamtri
  • About

    Pamtri is an online youtube animator who uses CGI software. They have similar style to Ratboygenius and other youtube bad-CGI animators, like using the “siri voices” instead of an actual voiceover, and animating the CGI very poorly. Their content is very musically sparse, and is often parodying cartoons (such as Shrek, Spongebob, Dora, and Rick and Morty). Unlike other animators, their content will often reference memes inside of itself (such as Squidward playing All Star by Smashmouth on his clarinet in the episode Sea Bear).

    A recurring trope inside of their videos is the character Santiago. Sometimes he will do nothing other than shoot other characters, but often he will be the main or only character in a video.

    Origin

    Pamtri is a content-creator on the platform Youtube who animates with CGI software. Their first video was published on December 10, 2016, but only has a small 30,000 views compared to the 500,000+ that their newest videos are currently getting.

    Spread

    Pamtri is currently still a small creator, with just over 100,000 subscribers, but is continuing to grow extremely quickly, gaining 40,000 subscribers in over just over one week.

  • 06/07/17--13:00: Y Can't Metroid Crawl
  • About

    Y Can’t Metroid Crawl is a phrasal meme within the gaming and Metroid communities as a way to joke about inexperienced gamers after a user posted that comment to the Miiverse while playing Super Metroid.

    Origin

    On May 16th, 2013, Miiverse poster PaulyU posted “Y Can’t Metroid Crawl?” to the Miiverse with a screenshot of Samus standing in front of a spot where she is supposed to roll (shown below).



    Spread

    The post quickly went viral online as users mocked both PaulyU’s obliviousness to Samus’ roll function and the fact he called Samus “Metroid.” Threads were posted to Neogaf[1] and Reddit[2] the following day including PaulyU’s post in a collage with other players struggling with Metroid.



    On May 28th, Kotaku[3] reported that PaulyU had finally beaten Super Metroid and documented the experience with various other comments. For example, at the end of the game when a Metroid appears, he commented “Jellyfish is helping yes.”



    The phrase became a popular in-joke in the fandom for the inexperience PaulyU displayed. It was documented on the Miiverse Wiki,[4] where it is noted that the comment gained over 3000 “Yeahs” as of September 2015, though it has since been deleted. On April 28th, 2014, Nintendo acknowledged the popularity of the phrase by tweeting a joke about it (shown below, left). On October 3rd, 2014, Twitter user @Electivirus posted a screenshot in Super Smash Brothers WiiU that seemed to reference the joke (shown below, right).

They were quickly upvoted, and the first post made it to the twitter bot in hours. The memes quickly gained popularity, as these impact font type font memes were coming back from the past. The Sokka trend quickly caught on and seems to continue to be growing, as they are getting many upvotes per day.

  • 06/14/17--07:54: Jeremy Corbyn
  • About

    Jeremy Corbyn is a British politician who identifies as a democratic-socialist. He currently serves as leader of the left-leaning Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition to Prime Minister Theresa May. Online, he has earned him a large amount of support on social media.

    History

    Corbyn was born in 1949 in Chippenham, England.[1] After education and work that saw him working for unions and other left-leaning policies, he was elected to Parliament for the Islington North constituency in 1983. There, he worked with the Labour Party in opposition. In the mid-80s, he was suspected of having ties to Irish revolutionary group the IRA as he worked to defend wrongfully charged IRA suspects in 1980s bombings. When Labour took power from 1997-2010, Corbyn was the Labour Member of Parliament (MP) who voted against their policies the most. Corbyn opposed the war in Iraq and led the Stop The War Coalition in British Parliament.

    Leadership of the Labour Party

    When the Labour Party lost the May 7th, 2015 general election, its leader, Ed Miliand, resigned, sparking a snap election for party leadership which Corbyn won. Corbyn was also named Leader of the Opposition on September 12th. He was criticized by some for “lukewarm” campaigning against Brexit. These criticisms led to 23 out of 31 members of his Shadow Cabinet to resign and led to a vote of no confidence in Corbyn. Corbyn lost that vote 172-40, but did not resign despite pressure from party leaders. An election for Labour leadership in 2016 saw Corbyn win with 61.8% of the vote.

    2017 British Election

    On April 19th, 2017, Prime Minister Theresa May called for a snap election to be held on June 8th. Though the next general election was not due to be held until 2020, May called the election with the intent of gaining more seats in Parliament than the conservative party’s 330. A stronger conservative majority seemed likely as opinion polls at the time showed May with as much as a 20 point lead over her opposition. Major issues discussed in the campaign were Brexit, national security, and social care. May campaigned on generating support Brexit and lower domestic taxes while Corbyn campaigned on public spending and that services such as education were being underfunded.

    Hours after May called the snap election, Corbyn, Sturdgeon of the SNP party, and Tim Farron of the Liberal Democrats all called for televised debates. May opposed any televised debates, but the BBC announced they would host debates to be held on May 31st and June 6th, whether or not May attended. Labour ruled out Corbyn attending if May did not attend, but on May 31st, Corbyn did appear at the debate, while the conservatives sent Home Secretary Amber Rudd. Meanwhile, Corbyn and the Labour Party gained significantly in the polls, cutting the Conservative Party’s 20 point lead to about 6 points.



    On June 8th, the Labour Party performed much better than most expected, gaining 29 seats for a total of 261. The Conservatives, meanwhile, lost 13 seats, and while they still had a majority, they lost their absolute majority, resulting in a hung parliament. It is expected that the Conservatives will attempt to align with the Democratic Unionist Party to form a coalition government.

    Social Media Presence

    Corbyn is quite popular on social media, with over 1.2 million Facebook likes[8] and 1.26 million Twitter followers.[9]

    The Absolute Boy

    Online, Corbyn is often referred to as “The Absolute Boy.” The term is British slang for a somewhat mischievous lad; The Guardian[2] said the phrase “shows the youth demographic adopting Corbyn as one of their own and in their own vernacular” and that it shows “benevolent laddism.” The earliest reference in the media to Corbyn being “The Absolute Boy” was posted June 1st, 2017 by SB Nation blog The Busby Babe,[3] a fan blog for the Manchester United Football Club. The phrase took off online in tweets referring to Corbyn. Lena Dunham posted an Instagram photo[4] on June 5th voicing her support for Corbyn with a pin calling him The Absolute Boy (shown below).



    Meanwhile, supporters of Corbyn on Twitter[7] continued to lovingly refer to him with the nickname. A Change.org[6] petition was created asking Corbyn make his Twitter name “The Absolute Boy” for 24 hours. A question about the origins of the phrase was posted to /r/OutOfTheLoop[5] on June 9th, 2017.

    Overview

    Donald Trump Julius Caesar Assassination refers to a controversial production of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, in which the title character, a populist leader, is depicted as President Donald Trump. After a bootleg video of the play’s finale, during which Caesar is assassinated, leaked online, corporate sponsors dropped support of the production.

    Background

    Belived to have been written in 1599, William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar adapts the Roman leader as a tragic populist leader murdered by his senate. The play has long been one of Shakespeare’s most controversial as it is frequently adapted to fit modern politics. In 1937, Citizen Kane-director Orson Welles staged a production featuring Nazi imagery, then on the rise in Germany and Italy.[1] In 2012, an adaptation in Minneapolis put then-president Barack Obama in the role.[20]

    Following Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election, theater executive Oskar Eustis decided to produce a version of Caesar where the title character looks like Trump for the 2017 Public Theater production in New York City’s Central Park.[2] The play began previews on May 23rd.

    Development

    On June 6th, a radio interview between comedian Joe Piscopo and Laura Sheaffer, a sales manager at Salem Media, went viral, after Sheaffer described her outrage after having seen the show.[3] During the interview, she describes his death by the hands of someone who resembles Melania Trump and a nude scene that she says makes a mockery of the presidency. Since being uploaded to YouTube, the interview has been viewed more than 14,000 times (listen below).



    The following day, Inside Edition’s YouTube channel uploaded footage of Caesar’s assassination, in which the character in Trump’s garb is stabbed to death. Within a week of its upload, the video has been watched more than 238,000 times.



    On June 11th, Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump, Jr,[5] retweeted a Fox news article about the play. In the tweet, he said, “I wonder how much of this ‘art’ is funded by taxpayers? Serious question, when does ‘art’ become political speech & does that change things?” The tweet (shown below) received more than 5,500 retweets and 13,500 likes.



    On June 11th and 12th, three major sponsors pulled funding from the Public Theater’s production, Bank of America and Delta.[7] In a series of statements via Twitter (shown below), Bank of America[4] and American Express,[6] explained their reasoning.



    On June 12th, 2017, the show opened. That night, Eustis delivered remarks before the show about the meaning and intention of the work (shown below). In his speech, he said:

    bq.“We try to hold a mirror up to nature. It’s what Shakespeare was doing, it’s what we’re doing. When we hold the mirror up to nature, often what we reveal are disturbing, upsetting, provoking things. Thank God. That’s our job. Anybody who sees this play tonight, and I’m sorry there’s going to be a couple of spoilers, will know that neither Shakespeare nor the Public Theater could possibly advocate violence as a solution to political problems and certainly not assassination.”



    Media Coverage

    Several news outlets covered the controversy, including The New York Times, Breitbart,[8] HuffPo,[9] The Washington Post,[10]BBC[11] and more. Twitter published two Moments page on the production, one on the controversy[12] and the other on The Public Theater’s response.[13]

    On Reddit, there were several threads in the /r/The_Donald subreddit regarding the controversy,[14][15][16][17] as well as threads in /r/politics[18] and /r/conservative.[19]

  • About

    Ethereum is an open-source blockchain platform which allows users to create smart contracts. Additionally, Ethereum provides the ether cyptocurrency token, which bears many similarities to Bitcoin.

    History

    DAO Hard Fork

    In April 2016, the digital decentralized autonomous organization DAO launched, which used the Ethereum blockchain. On May 27th, The New York Times[3] reported about DAO security vulnerabilities discovered by a group of computer scientists, who claimed hackers could steal tokens collected by the DAO and recommended investors in the project hold off until the flaws were fixed. On June 9th, Blockchain Foundation founder Peter Vessenes published a blog post[4] about a “recursive calls” vulnerability allowing Ethereum smart contracts to be emptied. On June 17th, the DAO was confronted with several cyberattacks, including the recursive calls, leading one hacker to steal 3.6 million ether tokens valued at approximately $50 million USD. After the hack was publicized, the value of ether dropped from $21.50 to $8. On July 20th, Ethereum performed “hard fork” to reappropriate the stolen tokens, which led to a split in the network between Ethereum and Ethereum Classic.
