On June 25th, 2017, singer and recording artist Bruno Mars performed at the 2017 BET Awards. Later that night, during Mary J. Blige and A$AP Rocky’s performance, cameras turned to Mars in the audience, where he appeared to be fighting off sleep.
People on Twitter were quick to capture the moment. Twitter user @AndreThaGiant_ posted a video with the caption “Bruno sleep 💀💀💀.” The tweet (shown below) received more than 430 retweets and 1,600 likes in less than 24 hours.
Shortly after the clip aired, Twitter users began making jokes about Bruno Mars.

Song Playing From Another Room is an audio-based meme in which people remix songs such that their audio quality is muffled and the bass is most prominent, making it sound as though the song is being played on speakers in another room.
On November 20th, 2016, Tumblr user largecat uploaded a remix that made it sound as though Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You were playing in another room. The post gained over 140,000 notes (shown below).
The style began growing popular on Tumblr a few months later with the creation of the blog fromanotherroom, a single-serving blog dedicated to posting remixes within the genre. They made their first post on March 3rd, 2017 with the song “Good Ones Go” by Drake (shown below). Since then, some of their most popular posts have been Toto’s “Africa” with over 91,000 notes, The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside” with over 64,000 notes, and Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” with over 52,000 notes. On June 25th, 2017, memedocumentation covered the popularity of the meme on Tumblr.
The Redbone meme in which the song “Redbone” by Childish Gambino is remixed to sound as though it were being played in various places started as a “From Another Room” remix. On May 14th, 2017, Twitter user @chloestixx tweeted a remix of the song where the audio was heavily muted, captioning it “What Redbone would sound like while you’re making out in the bathroom of a house party.” Her tweet gained over 85,400 retweets and 195,900 likes (shown below).

TED Talk Gorilla refers to an image of a gorilla from the Los Angeles Zoo who is sitting and gesturing with his mouth open in front of onlookers, making it appear as though he was delivering a lecture.
On July 23rd, 2014, the photo appeared in a press release from the Los Angeles Zoo promoting their “Brew at the Zoo” event (shown below).
On June 22nd, 2017, the LAist Twitter used the photo to promote the event as one of “20 Awesome Events Happening In Los Angeles.” Twitter user @nilaffle remarked of the photo, “This gorilla looks like he decided to have this undergrad philosophy lecture outside since it’s a nice day.”
Once the photo hit Twitter, users began making jokes about how the gorilla appeared to be giving a lecture to the onlookers. On June 23rd, Twitter user @CardChronicle posted the image with a caption making it appear as though the gorilla was talking about how he overcame his drug addiction (shown below, left). On the 24th, @memeprovider posted a joke referencing Harambe (shown below, right).
On the 24th, Twitter user @Pattymo tweeted the image with the caption “The only TED Talk I’d see,” which caused UPROXX to coin the name “TED Talk Gorilla.” On June 25th, 2017, Redditor lexlevi submitted the picture to /r/pics with the caption “This gorilla looks like he decided to have his undergraduate philosophy lecture outside since it’s a nice day.” The post gained over 131,000 points and was the top post on /r/pics that day. Later that day, the Twitter account for the Los Angeles Zoo confirmed that the picture was taken at their Roaring Night event. The jokes have been covered by Uproxx, Huffington Post, and HelloGiggles.

spinnyboiz are a trend on the online game animal jam, it involves dressing as a koala with a lei and a matching head flower. the trend was started by youtuber Julian2aj, when he uploaded the video called “animal jam trolling roleplayers,” in which he annoyed people that were acting out skits, on the account evenmorespinnyboiz. The youtuber Appari saw the success of this trend and tried to make his own version of it by uploading a video titled, “ANIMALJAMCRAZYTREND” in which he dressed as a completely black tiger with a orange cheese hat. they made a few videos about their different tribes, but Appari kinda forgot about his cheese tigers and the trend died down. therefore, they only lasted a couple months, because him and his cheese tigers weren’t very dedicated to it. (unlike Julian2 and his spinnyboiz.) spinnyboiz are against bulling and their outfit consists of 2 nonmember, cheap items.
Julian added a holiday themed spinnyboi each holiday. they include the fallowing:
springyboiz – for springtime.
valentine’sdayspinnyboiz – for valentines day.
greenbeanspinnyboiz – for his birthday/saint Patrick’s day.
you get the picture.
most spinnyboiz dislike Appari.
these creatures are rarely found in busy parts of animal jam.
spinnyboiz usually travel in groups of 2-5.
their main habitat is julian2’s den.
Julian calls them his BEANS or spinnyboiz.
there are no SPINNYGIRLS. only FEMALESPINNYBOIZ.
Taw is a furry, specifically of the bat variety, that enjoys Bondage & Discipline / Domination & Submission / Sadism & Masochism (otherwise known as BDSM).

What would you do for a Klondike Bar?
What would you do for a Klondike bar? is a Quote of the Vanilla Ice Cream Square With the thin layer of chocolate named: “Klondike Bar”.
What is Klondike Bar?
Klondike is a Brand name for a dessert consisting of a Vanilla Ice cream Square With the thin layer of Chocolate Often know as a Klondike Bar.
The Klondike bar was created by the Isaly Dairy Company of Mansfield, Ohio in the early 1920s.
It was named after the Klondike River of Yukon in Canada. ( that’s how it started )
The First advertisement about: “What would you do for a Klondike Bar?” Was in 1983.
Visual Music refers to the performance, construction and/or presentation of music through the use of visual imagery. It is the translation of the aural arts into visual arts.
In 1704, Sir Isaac Newtown debuted an idea that the prismatic spectrum of seven colors related to the seven musical tones of the diatonic scale. He devised a wheel to describe his theory (shown below, left) in his 1704 treaties “Optiks.”
Roughly 20 years later, French mathematician Louis Bertran Castel attempted to put Newton’s theories into practice. Castel’s “lavecin pour les yeux” or “harpsichord for the eyes” was an instrument outfitted with sixty multi-hued lanters that illuminated when notes were played (shown below, right). Like a keyboard or synthesizer, different keys produced different colors. As Castel wrote, “The pressing of the keys would bring out the colours with their combinations and their chords; in one word, with all their harmony, which would correspond exactly to that of any kind of music.”
Art critic Roger Fry coined the term “visual music” in 1912. While many claim that Fry used the expression to describe influential visual musician Wassily Kandinsky, other contend that the first usage of the term came in reference to the later work of Picasso. In the preface to the catalogue for post-impressionist exhibit he organized at the Grafton Galleries, he wrote:
“The logical extreme of such a method would undoubtedly be the attempt to give up all resemblance to natural form, and to create a purely abstract language of form -- a visual music; and the later works of Picasso show this clearly enough. They may or may not be successful in their attempt.”
Throughout the 1910s, futurists Bruno Corra and Arnaldo Ginna produced films that experimented with color music. Mary Hallock-Greenwalt, additionally, made films that were visualization of musical form.
In May 1919, artist Thomas Wilfred enginnered the Clavilux, a device that culd be used for the performance of “lumia,” Wilfred’s term for light art or color music (examples below). He built smaller versions of this type of instrument meant for home installation.
In the late 1940s, Oskar Fischinger, a leading artist in abstract musical animation and former Disney animator, developed the Lumigraph. Designed to be a commercial product, the Lumigraph worked by pressing a rubber screen, which would protrude into a narrow beam of light. While the device was silent, the it would be played with accompanying music.
In 1995, the Animusic company launched to specialize in the 3D visualization of MIDI-based music.
In May 2002, Jarmo Niinisalo discovered two faces in the sound waves of the 1999 Aphex Twin single “Windowlicker.” According to Wired, the faces (shown below) “can be reproduced with a sample of the song and some spectrographic software, which displays the different frequencies of the song as a graph against time. The image doesn’t appear in an MP3 file of the song; the compression algorithm destroys the image.”
On June 22nd, 2017, Google celebrated Oskar Fischinger’s 117th with a Google doodle that doubled as a visual music sequencer. The software allows users to press different shapes, which corresponded to different tones and notes.
MIDI Animations (MIDIアニメ) are user-created videos that illustrate MIDI compositions visually through a careful arrangement of color-coded musical blocks. Using a MIDI software called the Music Animation Machine MIDI Player, or simply MAM, each artist can create his/her own “visual representation” of any MIDI file, with each colored block corresponding to every musical note registered in the song. MIDI animations first became popular in October 2007 on the Japanese video-sharing website Nico Nico Douga.
Mario Paint Songs
Mario Paint Songs are musical compositions created by individuals using Mario Music Composer, an audio-editing tool included in the popular SNES video game Mario Paint. For more information about the game itself, see the section below. Today, popular video-sharing sites like YouTube and Nico Nico Douga feature thousands of Mario Paint songs made with third-party softwares like Mario Paint Composer and Mario Sequencer.
Automatic Mario (自動マリオ) is a subgenre of remix videos that emulate popular songs and soundtracks through gameplay footage of customized level stages in Super Mario World. Mostly created by fans using Super Mario ROM editors, musical compositions in Auto-Mario videos are carefully prearranged by the architectural design of each level and thus rarely requires any input from the player. However, there are other types of Super Mario MOD levels that can be played manually or semi-manually with musical accompaniments.

4 Panel Cringe refers to a series of exploitable multi-pane images, used to compile Facebook, Instagram or other social media posts that the author deems embarrassing or cringeworthy.
Following the popularity of Hey Girls, Didn’t You Know… users began posting variations of the format using the phrases “4 panels” and “cringe” on Reddit. One of the earliest examples of these words being used together comes from a post by Redditor newcreationsurf. On December 31st, 2012, they posted a four panel compliation with the subtitles “Guys be like…Im fabulous And im like…dont tell me you have a vagina too.” The post (shown below) appeared in the thread “Another 4 panel cringe” in the /r/cringepics subreddit.
Several weeks later, on January 22nd, 2013, more four panel posts appeared on Reddit. Redditor Pimente posted a parody of “Hey Girls…” in which a woman says “Hey guys, did you know…That um…Your banana goes inside your pants.” The post (shown below) entitled “4-panel counterpart of ‘Hey girls, did you know…’. Just as cringe worthy” appeared in the /r/cringepics subreddit, received more than 150 points (92% upvoted) before archiving.

Stuart Pot (also known as 2-D, Stu-Pot, or Pot) is the lead vocalist and pianist of Gorillaz.
Stuart Pot was born on May 23, 1978 to David and Rachel Pot. His real name is Stuart Pot (his last name was often thought to be Tusspot, though his father changed his name to “Pot” shortly before Stuart was born to avoid him from getting bullied at school), but is often shortened to Stu-Pot. He was born in Hertfordshire, England and was raised in Crawley, England and was educated at St. Wilfred’s School (the same school that educated the members of The Cure). His father, David Tusspot, worked as a mechanic and owner of the Tusspot’s Fairground. His mother, Rachel Tusspot, was a nurse who supplied Stuart with headache pills from his tree accident. Stuart wasn’t a very intelligent boy, he was known as a kind person and had a general love of music. His parents recall a little ten-year-old bouncing around in his room listening to The Clash, Agustus Pablo, The Human League (this band was his favorite) and many other musicians of the sort. He hit his head when falling from a tree at the age of eleven, causing all of his hair to fall out. When it came back it was a deep ‘azure blue’.
An old photo of 2-D (foreground center) during his days at St. Wilfred’s school.
When he was 19, the drama in his life began when hooligan Murdoc Niccals, age 31, purposefully crashed his Vauxhall Astra through the wall of Uncle Norm’s Organ Emporium, where Stuart had been working, in an attempt to ramraid it and steal the synths. Murdoc’s bumper crashed into Stuart’s face, landing him with an 8-ball fracture also known as ‘hyphema’, although he can still see. Murdoc was arrested and sentenced to carry out 30,000 hours (1,250 days) of community service as well as care for the vegetablized Stuart for 10 hours every week.
One year later, in a poor attempt to impress some women, Murdoc performed a 360 in a Tesco car park in Nottingham with his vehicle. This sent Stuart crashing through the windscreen, hitting his head on the curb, fracturing his other eye. When Stuart awoke after what seemed to be him sliding on the cement for about a mile, he turned to look at Murdoc. This is when Murdoc knew he had his front man. “A blue-haired, black-eyed god”, Murdoc recalls. Murdoc nicknamed Stuart ‘2-D’, which stands for the “Two Dents” in his head. Rather amusingly, Stuart adores his new nickname, dropping the use of his birth name completely and even signing formal letters with the first name “Two” and surname “D”. 2-D would appear to have a chronic history of violent blows to the head, coupled with a complete lack of natural intelligence. Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett commented on this, saying that he has a blank sheet of paper where a brain should be. Despite this, he serves as Gorillaz’s lead vocalist.
Gorillaz Phase 1: 1998-2002
In 1998, 2-D and Murdoc moved into Kong Studios and assembled Russel Hobbs to join them. 2-D’s girlfriend, Paula Cracker was originally the group’s first guitar player but was soon fired after Russel caught her and Murdoc in the studio toilets making out. 2-D was upset about this and he and Paula broke up. After she was replaced by Noodle and the band was named Gorillaz. 2-D began dating Rachel Stevens, former member of S-Club 7 and invited her to the band’s first gig at the Camden Brownhouse.
After Gorillaz attended the record label signing party, Rachel broke up with 2-D the next day, after Murdoc spent most of the evening hitting on her to get her attention.
After Gorillaz played their last gig at the Isle of MTV in Portugal, Gorillaz moved to Los Angeles to write a film and tension began to grow between the band members. After suggesting many crazy ideas for the film, Murdoc snapped and attacked 2-D, almost getting himself choked. Luckily, Russel saved him, but after that fight, the band split up.
Post-Phase 1 to Pre-Phase 2: 2003-2004
During the Gorillaz hiatus, 2-D stayed in Los Angeles. He spent a couple of nights at Britt Ekland’s flat, but he left because of her habit of running around naked, banging on the walls and never getting any sleep. 2-D finally left L.A to work on his father’s funfair in Eastbourne. He used to collect money for a ride called ‘The Switchback Ride’, and there he met Shane Lynch, former member of Boyzone, and they became good friends. By the time they met, 2-D adopted a teddy boy style and used to stroll the city along with Shane. 2-D didn’t really think about Gorillaz until a couple years later, when he received a text message from Noodle and, with that, he decided to return to Kong with fully restored confidence after he realized he was responsible for the Gorillaz success.
Gorillaz Phase 2: 2005-2007
After the El Mañana conspiracy, 2-D and Russel were frantic about Noodle’s supposed death. It was a hoax, however, and the band has once again gone separate ways but not for long (so promised Murdoc in the autobiography Rise of the Ogre; their biggest project to date is apparently being planned) and the singer was, according to Murdoc, “…poncing off somewhere. He’s probably gonna try and become an actor or a model or whatever…”
According to an official mail-out from 31 October 2007, Murdoc says that “2-D is away on a vacation at a Jamaican beach.” On 13 November, however, the D-Sides text in the G-Shop stated that 2-D was currently completing a law degree.
Gorillaz Phase 3: 2008-2012
Murdoc had revealed that he had kidnapped 2-D and was holding him against his will on Plastic Beach, enlisting 2-D’s vocal talents for use on the third Gorillaz album, Plastic Beach. It was revealed through various media on the trailer in which this kidnapping was revealed that 2-D was in a small flat in Beirut at the time, for reasons which are currently unknown. On the Gorillaz website it was recently stated by 2-D, in the Plastic Beach adventure game, that Murdoc had “kindly” gassed 2-D and shipped him to Plastic Beach, where he was being forced to sing for his new demos. His room was located on floor B2, and when you enter his room he would be found trembling on his bed. When you would talk to him he would ask who you are, and that he didn’t think anyone else was on the island. He stated that Murdoc has been gassing various people and forcing them to be on the album.
Throughout a recent interview, Gorillaz – iTunes Session, 2-D deliberately insults Murdoc just to spite him for the horrible things he has done to him, and physically attacked him when Murdoc brought up the Paula Cracker incident, which is obviously a sore subject for 2-D.
I only really joined the band to make music, and now, I’m being held captive by a bastard bass player in an underwater submarine, being attacked by sodding pirates who are trying to take over this rotten piece of broken plastic in the ocean that Gorillaz call ‘home’. All this, just to make a video. It’s making me want to die!
During the Escape to Plastic beach World Tour, 2-D wrote his Gorillaz album The Fall which, apparently Murdoc knew nothing about. Recently, a new character had appeared on Plastic Beach. His name is Big Rick, and he owned the record shop on the beach. It had been reported that the shop (previously locked) would open in time for The Fall’s release.
During the special XFM radio show to promote the Gorillaz’s The Singles Collection 2001-2011 on the 27th of November 2011, Murdoc said that the last he’d seen of 2-D was when the whale Massive Dick bit a chunk out of the island. This included 2-D’s room which he was in at the time (“Rhinestone Eyes” Storyboard Video) and thus he was presumed to have been eaten alive. However, there are various hints that 2-D may have possibly escaped from the bunker.
It was later shown that 2-D was rescued by Russel and Noodle after their arrival on Plastic Beach who then traveled with them to find Murdoc after it was found out he faked his death. The three found him in a run down house at 212 Wobble Street, London after finding his new broadcasting location. Although it is not known what happened next the four band members are shown living together again during the “DoYaThing” music video.

After the events of Plastic Beach being raided by the Black Clouds with many events happening at the Rhinestone Eyes music video, 2-D was eaten by a Great White Whale and presumed dead. After years of eating trash and having a living body in his stomach, the whale’s life was done and washed up on the shore.

2-D was free from the whale’s mouth, and he was stuck on a deserted island. With poor survival skills, he is forced to eat rotten whale blubber for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Months passed on the deserted island, and 2-D saw a plane passing by for a Spanish Festival. He saw this as a chance to escape the island, but the plane did not see him. 23 Minutes later, he was in the middle of a beach rave. He was never marooned at all, in fact in the middle of Guadalupe, Mexico. It was finally time to return home to Murdoc.
At Hearthrow, a man comes to 2-D and offers a drive to West London. To the house of Murdoc, Russel, and Noodle.

2-D has big hands and long fingers. He is tall and thin, standing at 6’2", and has black eyes. The reason it looks like this is because of his 8-ball fracture, when the iris of the eye filled with blood also called a hyphema. He has naturally blue hair resulting from when he fell out of a tree at age eleven, causing all his hair to fall out and grow back a deep azure blue. His hair used to be brown.
Like Noodle, 2-D’s looks have evolved heavily throughout Phases 1, 2, and 3. In Phase 1, 2-D is seen with very geometric, and almost purple hair at times, unlike in phase two, where his hair has seemed to gain a more realistic, lined tone and turned to an almost teal color, In Phase 3, 2-D is seen with much more realistic hair, larger eyes, and more tanned skin. Further, his shape in Phase 1 was almost ruler-straight; in Phase 2 and 3, he seemed to gain some tone and shape and wrinkles, giving him more of a ‘hippy’ look, compared to his Phase 1 appearance. 2-D’s speaking and singing voice has also deepened from Phases 1 to 3.
Despite missing his two front teeth, 2-D can sing clearly. His speech, while still mainly clear, has a definite Cockney (or thereabouts) accent: he says “summfink” instead of “something”, and “fing” instead of “thing.” His singing voice has become deeper since the first album. 2-D is considered the ‘pretty boy’ and frontman of Gorillaz.

This copypasta first surfaced in a post on 4chan /b/.“__People like you disgust me, actually there is nobody quite as repulsive as you are. In fact you are such a worthless piece of literal shit that no human being with any sort of intelligence, unlike your non-functioning brain that works as well as an 87-year-old downsyndrome mongoloid parapalegic retard, would ever accept you as a person let alone want to reproduce with you. Face it, faggot, nobody wants your awful traits in their gene pool.__"
This post was most likely in response to the OP (origional poster) to show that they weren’t welcome on that board.
