  • 06/23/17--01:44: Woody's Roundup
  • “Woody’s Roundup” is the name of a series of Toy Story roleplaying blogs. It is occasionally is referred to as “Woody Collective” or “Woody Hivemind”.

    Despite being around for a few years, Woody’s Roundup spiked in popularity when several infamous Nazi, pedophile, and TERF blogs deactivated. Soon after their deactivation another blog with the same username would pop up, but the blog title was changed to some variation of “Howdy Pardner” and their icon would be this image of Woody.

    !Howdy!!

    The blogs would then post and reblog the same posts over and over, like a hivemind, which is where it got its alternate name. Roleplaying would also take place on these blogs. There are over 40 of these blogs and the number is rapidly growing as more and more blogs are being overtaken. Many wide-spread blogs known for their racism or general nastiness have been claimed by the Roundup.

    !!

    The blogs claim to “keep the Wild West safe from bandits and varmints.” It is noted in the rules set forth by the head of the hivemind, woodysroundup, that only blogs that are considering problematic can be taken into the hivemind.

  • 06/24/17--00:41: Agehao Double Peace
  • Editor’s note: Work in Progress



    About

    Agehao Double Peace (Japanese: アヘ顔ダブルピース or アヘ顔Wピース; abbr. ADP or AWP), sometimes translated as “Ahegao Double V-Signs”, refers to a pose of making V signs, better known as peace signs in Japan[1], with both hands in Ahegao facial expression. Since 2010s, it has been one of the iconic poses in the hentai subculture as well as online parody illustrations.

    Origin

    In hentai manga, particularly that in Netorare genre, women making the most popular photography pose in the country, peace sign, during/after sexual intercourse to take photos or videos has been always used as a depiction for their sexual obedience and abandonment of morality. According to Pixiv Encyclopedia[2], the first instance that made a success to combine this cliche and Ahegao, another iconic facial expression which had established its concept in the hentai subculture in late 2000s, was an adult game My Faithful Futanari Girlfriend Got Highly addicted with The Farming Uncle’s Hentai Training and Sent Me An Ahegao Peace-Sign Video Letter (信じて送り出したフタナリ彼女が農家の叔父さんの変態調教にドハマリしてアヘ顔ピースビデオレターを送ってくるなんて…, Shinjite Okuridashita Futanari Kanojo ga Nouka no Ojisan no Hentai Choukyou ni Dohamarishite Ahegao Peace Video Letter wo Okutte Kuru Nante…). This video game, usually called Futa Letter for short, was released in Apirl 2010 by a Japanese doujin circle Hrathnir, and the “Ahegao Peace-Sign” pose by this game’s heroine Asuna Yamaguchi (shown below) is considered as the trigger of this internet meme.



    Asuna’s Ahegao Peace-Sign in Futa Letter

    Precursors

    Prior to Futa Letter, the same double peace signs with Ahegao-like face was often struck by Japanese idol/actor Shingo Katori[3] in 2009 TV drama adaptation for popular manga series Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo[4] (shown below, left), and his ridiculous face caught an attention as well as his awful acting in those days. Also, Shimbo Nomura’s gag manga in 1980s Tsurupika Hagemaru[5] sometimes showed the protagonist Hagemaru’s double V signs with silly face (Shown below, right). These similar expressions in gag manga became to be mentioned as early examples of Ahegao Double Peace after the pose’s popularization on the web in 2010s.



    Spread

    Helped by the popularity of the circle’s organizer, Japanese famous hentai creator Misakura Nankotsu (みさくらなんこつ), Asuna’s Ahegao Peace-Sign started going viral on 2channel, Futaba Channel (2chan), niconico and Twitter in that year. And during the path of spreading on these online communities, “Ahegao Peace” pose became to be relabeled as “Ahegao Double Peace” since it was more accurate to describe that Asuna’s pose and sounded more pleasant for Japanese people.

    The further spreading of Ahegao Double Peace came in the following year. On April 23rd 2011, Kanimaru-kun, an official mascot character for Kanie Town in Aichi Prefecture, caught an online attention as it looked like Ahegao Double Peace (Shown below, left). In the following month, it also went viral that Yuko Aioi in Nichijou TV anime struck the “perfect” Ahegao Double Peace in its 8th episode (Shown below, center). By these topics happened on serially, this pose succeeded to establish its own concept on the web in the middle of 2011. Thereafter, Japanese online illustrator communities Pixiv and Nico Nico Seiga have had a vast amount of posts of hentai and parody illustrations of Ahegao Double Peace.[6][7] A Shift-JIS art for the pose, v(゜∀。)v , was also made in this period. 2013 TV anime WataMote also parodied Ahegao Double Peace in the ending credit movie for the 5th episode (Shown below, right).



    Meanwhile, Takashi Otsuka[8], the director for TV anime Glitter Force/Smile PreCure![9], tweeted on May 25th, 2012 that he was feeling uncomfortable against some of collages or photoshopped images of the on-going child anime and asked people not to to post them to the public because it would make them suffer claims from people who misunderstood that it were really aired or get forced to change the story.[10][11] It was generally considered what he mainly mentioned to were the Ahegao Double Peace images of Lily/Yaoi Kise or Glitter Peace/Cure Peace who often makes the peace sign in the show. Those images circulating on the social networking service and matome blogs were taken from 2chan or Pixiv (shown below).

  • 06/24/17--06:10: Ahegao
  • About

    Ahegao (アヘ顔) is a drawing genre in Japanese Hentai comics, in which the character (mainly female) is showing, during sexual intercourse, an intense amount of pleasure translated by her facial expression.

    Etymology & History

    In the name, “Ahe” comes from Japanese onomatopoeia of “Aheahe” (アヘアヘ) describing female’s flushed breath/moaning in sex and her sexual excitement, and “Gao” (顔) means “Face”. According to a forum post in Nico Nico Pedia‘s entry for Ahegao[1], it’s confirmed that the term had been already used in porn magazines to simply explain porn actresses’ face of pleasure in early 1990s. Used in the same context, it also made appearances on a handful of posts in 2channel and its sister board community for adult contents BBSPINK as well as descriptions for porn videos on adult e-commerce sites in the first half of 2000s. The oldest 2channel post in existence that includes this term was posted to a thread in /company/ (tip-off) on November 4th, 2001.[2]

    Meanwhile, according to 2008-2009 Japanese blog posts WebLab.ota’s “Ahegao History”[3] and “Ahegao Chronology” (shown below)[4], and Himajin no Dabun’s “Chronological Analyze of The Ahegao Genre in Adult Games”[5], it was around 2003-2005 that some hentai manga and anime creators began introducing extremely exaggerated face depictions of women’s abnormal orgasms by unwanted sexual intercourse, hardcore BDSMs, rapes or other sex assaults. Another blog post by Bar Rikashitsu no Bibouroku[6] suggested that Japanese ero guro[7] mangaka/painter Suehiro Maruo[8] had already introduced this kind of depiction to his works in early 1980s.



    Ahegao Timeline (WebLab.ota, 2009)

    Ahegao in today’s meaning was formed by increase and evolution of this drawing style in the middle of 2000s, and its spreading to the otaku community via Futaba Channel (2chan), 2channel/BBSPINK which became to host Ahegao-themed threads around the middle of 2007[9][10], and matome blogs reprinting threads in those online communities. And in around 2008, it had enough spread to be recognized as one of famous drawing techniques for orgasms. The first Ahegao-themed doujin comic anthology “A-H-E” was released in the winter of that year (Shown below, left). In 2010s, major publishers had released Ahegao themed comic anthologies (Shown below, center) as well in its first half and even porn videos became to occasionally feature the facial expression (Shown below, right), along with popularization of hentai fetishes in the real-life sex industry.



    Additionally, Ahegao, Ahegao-like silly faces, and its derivative Ahegao Double Peace became to be sometimes featured even in normal anime titles in the non-sexual context (Shown below).

    Honoka Kousaka from Love Live! (2013), Toko Fukawa from DanganRompa (2013)

    Online Revelance

    Against the backdrop of the large popularity in the otaku community, which had been developed in the late-2000s, Ahegao has earned a lots of online visibility as both a hentai art technique and fodder for parody illustrations. In its early days, Ahegao had been a popular style in the Collage culture in 2chan and 2channel. And Japanese illustrators communities Pixiv and Nico Nico Seiga which were launched in the same period have been popular Ahgao-sharing services since its beginning. As of June 2017, Pixiv holds over 20000 illustrations tagged under Ahegao[11], and Nico Nico Seiga, which doesn’t have the adult section, also has plenty of illustrations featuring the face.[12]

    On the Westerners Web, this particular facial expression is called in not only the original name, but also translated terms “Fucked Silly Face” or “Mind Break Face”.[13] Tagged under these names, lots of Ahegao illustrations have been drawn by DeviantArt users[14], or reprinted to Tumblr and Danbooru. Urban Disctonary‘s article and Reddit’s subreddit /r/Ahegao were launched in June 2010. Besides, Instagram’s hashtag also has tons of Ahegao selfies by female otakus and cosplayers.[15]

    Definition

    Ahegao is defined in several blog researches and online user-made dictionaries’ articles, which list these features below.[3][16][17][18][19][20]

    • Rolled-up Eyes
    • Stuck-out Tongue
    • Got wet by tears, snot, drool or semen or other body fluids
    • Flushed Face
    • Ridiculously strange moans: eg. Nhoooh! (んほぉ!), Aheee! (あへぇ!), Iguuh! (イグゥ), etc…

    About

    CNN White House Press Briefing Sketch refers to a number of hand-drawn illustrations depicting White House Press Briefings that cameras were barred from. Online, the sketches became a popular source of image macros and parody.

    Origin

    In June 2017, the White House began banning cameras from certain White House press briefings.[1] The unconventional rule has been met with criticism, especially after White House chief strategist responded to questions about the lack of cameras with a text message reading, “Sean got fatter.”

    On June 23rd, CNN sent sketch artist Bill Hennessy, who has sketched Supreme Court proceedings in the past, to the press briefing. That day, @CNN[3] posted one of Hennessy’s sketches to Instagram with the caption, “The White House has banned cameras at some of its press briefings – so we sent courtroom sketch artist Bill Hennessy to capture the scene instead.” The post (shown below) received more than 10,700 likes in three days.



    Spread

    Later that day, CNN posted several sketches from the press briefing on Twitter.[4] In a tweet captioned “The White House has been prohibiting cameras at some press briefings, so we sent a sketch artist,” CNN tweeted four images from the briefing. The post received more than 5,000 retweets and 12,000 likes in three days.

    CNN correspondents Jim Acosta[9] and Brian Stetler[8] also shared the sketch on Twitter (shown below, left and right, respectively). Acosta received more than 3,700 retweets and 11,000 likes for his tweet, which he captioned “So sketchy to not have cameras at WH briefing. So CNN sent sketch artist to capture the moment.” Stetler garnered more than 2,300 retweets and 4,500 likes within three days.



    Shortly after the sketches hit Twitter, people began posting captions above the pictures. Twitter user @darth posted two of the most popular. First, they posted a sketch with Spicer replaced with a bush, alluding to the time reporters found him hiding in the bushes and the caption “was not a supporter of the idea of a courtroom sketch artist in the white house briefing room but this is pretty good tbh.” The tweet (shown below, left) received more than 1,400 retweets and 4,500 likes. @darth followed this tweet with another photoshop that replaced Spicer with the This Is Fine dog and the caption “‘how was the press conference’ ‘fine.’” The tweet received more than 2,400 retweets and 7,500 likes.[10]



    Throughout the day, people continued to post pictures and parodies of the press briefing sketches (examples below).

    Several news outlets covered CNN’s sketches, including The New York Post,[5] The Washington Post,[6] Uproxx[7] and more.
