  • 07/26/17--10:49: Snail Gosh

This was known at the time as Still Nosh not Snail Gosh but gradually the name evolved into what would become Snail Gosh but unfortunately Crash4563 got suspended by Viacom in June 2007 for copyright violations but videos started to appear about Still Nosh/Snail Gosh.

  • 07/26/17--11:16: Ready Player One
  • About

    Ready Player One is a science-fiction, dystopian novel by Ernest Cline. After growing in popularity, a film adaptation was put into production. It is to be directed by Steven Spielberg and is set for release in 2018.

    Plot Summary

    Ready Player One follows Wade Watts in a dystopian future set in the year 2044.[1] In the book, Watts, hunts for an “Easter egg” in a virtual reality game, the discovery of which will help him inherit a valuable fortune. In the year 2044, the world is wracked with an energy crisis as a result of the depletion of fossil fuels. People pass the time by living in a virtual reality world called OASIS, a program created by Jason Halliday. Before he died, Halliday announced that there was an Easter egg--a hidden message-- in the game, and the first person to discover it would inherit his fortune and company. Halliday was an avid fan of 80s culture, so much of the world contains references to 80s and 90s pop culture icons. The story begins as Watts finds one of the first clues to discover the Easter egg. As Watts goes on adventures, he develops a crush on Art3mis, a fellow hunter, and has a best friend named Aech.

    History

    The novel was published by Random House on August 16th, 2011. It was a New York Times Bestseller and a critical success. Critics lauded the novel’s wit and deep love of geek culture. The Huffington Post wrote the book “has it all – nostalgia, trivia, adventure, romance, heart and, dare I say it, some very fascinating social commentary.” USA Today wrote that the book made Cline “the hottest geek on the planet right now.”

    Film Adaptation

    The film rights were purchased by Warner Bros. on the same day Cline signed with Random House. Stephen Spielberg signed on to direct the film in March of 2015. On July 22nd, 2017, the first trailer for the film was released (shown below).



    Backlash

    Following the release of the trailer, both the book and film saw backlash on Twitter, where users criticized it for being a vast tableau of pandering, “nerd culture” references without any substance. A popular tweet by @donniemnemonic mocked a page in which the narrator offers a long list of 80s pop culture shows and films he had become obsessed with (shown below).




    Neil Cicierega parodied the trailer by shouting “Whoa!” in a five-second clip in which various pop culture icons flash on the screen (shown below). AV Club[2] and Fox News[3] covered the backlash online against the film.




    Fandom

    Online, the book and film have decent followings. An official Facebook[4] page for the film has 44,000 likes. There are also a few dozen illustrations under the #readyplayerone[5] tag on DeviantArt.

  • 07/26/17--11:19: The Best Day Ever
  • The Best Day Ever is a meme involving various terrible situations playing along with the song “Best Day Ever” from_* The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie*_ (and later in the fourth season episode of the same name).

    Origin

    On YTMND, user MasterSitsu released a site that displayed footage of a gory beating from the film The Passion Of The Christ set to the SpongeBob song. Despite being released in March, it didn’t catch on until June.

    Spread and Reception

    As June rolled around, more versions of the meme began appearing. These include the burning of Anakin Skywalker, Paul Sheldon’s foot injury from Misery, and a Nazi solider getting run over by a tank from Band Of Brothers. And even then, there are more happier and hilarious variations such as SpongeBob’s Best Day Ever.

    Overall reaction to the site was largely negative, which may explain its lack of popularity at first. Viewers criticized it for being too violent and too simple to make.

  • About

    Not The Onion is a popular expression or catchphrase for expressing the opinion that a news story is so outlandish and unbelievable that it is reminiscent of the satirical newspaper The Onion.

    Origin

    While the satirical newspaper has been in publication since 1988, the phrase “Not the Onion” did not come into prominence until the mid-00s. On October 25th, 2008, the subreddit /r/NotTheOnion launched.[1] This page allowed users to submit bizarre and funny news articles that look like satire but were, in fact, real. As of July 2017, the subreddit had more than 12 million subscribers.

    Precursor

    On August 13th, 2003, the website www.nottheonion.com was registered. While this is the first known usage of the phrase “Not the Onion,” the site does not abide by the popular definition.[2] Instead, the site is an educational portal for learning to write satire.

    Spread

    Since the launching of the subreddit, the phrase has become used on other sites. The earliest known usage of the phrase as a hashtag on Twitter occured on February 17th, 2009.[6] Twitter user @Shebanator commented (shown below), “RT @monkchips: Saudi Oil Minister Warns Against Hasty Transition to Renewable Energy – http://tinyurl.com/bryq65 ha! #NotTheOnion.”

    One post on the Democratic Underground (shown below) made on October 4th, 2010 sees user lame54 use the phrase to describe the unusual circumstances of a story. They titled the thread, “I Swear – This Is NOT The Onion.”



    On March 6th, 2012, the website theon1on.com launched, which archives and shares funny and bizarre news articles.[3]

    The following year, Not the Onion appeared on Twitter,[4] when the account @ItsNotTheOnion joined on February 8th, 2013. The account, as of July 2017, has more than 1,000 followers. Two years later, on November 10th, 2015 a Facebook account called OnionFlavouredNews[5] launched. As of July 2017, the page has more than 1,000 likes and 1,000 followers.

  • 07/26/17--13:51: 1920s
  • 1920s is a meme where users take clips or other memes and edit them to make them look like they’re taking place in the 1920s or done in the style of a silent film. Usually the song featured is “Happy Days Are Here Again”, though any other song related to the 20s is acceptable.

    Origin

    In August of 2005, user Ozone31 created a site on YTMND that takes a clip from the 2004 movie Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy of a cowboy getting stabbed by a pitchfork. The scene is done in a sepia tone with music typical of the 1920s playing throughout. Other additions are a title card saying “Ouch!” as the cowboy is hit (a reference to silent films) and fake mustache and top hat on his killer.

    Spread

    Not long after the site was posted, numerous other users embraced it and began making their own versions. A version with a movie clip (with speech done with title cards) is The Devious Snidely Grievous that makes use of a section of Star Wars III. A version with a meme is What is 1920s, which is an old school version of the What is Love meme.

  • 07/26/17--14:35: Jayden The Vampire Boy
  • Jayden The Vampire Boy is a meme based off a video made for children’s entertainment YouTube channel Jamster.

    Origin

    The video was originally uploaded to Jamster’s YouTube channel in 2010, though it did not become a meme until seven years later. The video depicts a CG vampire kid who wants to win the heart of a girl he encounters outside of her house. As he frolics the playground near him, he sings a Bieber-esque song about how he can’t do this due to being a different species before flying away as a bat. As of 2017, the upload sits at 2,027,529 views, though with a fair amount of dislikes.

    Spread

    Starting in April 2017, user chopping boss created a couple of mashups of the short animation and other videos/memes. These videos were having the whole thing play when characters from the Dragon Ball anime say “Dragon Ball” and a mashup with this and Casin by glue70.

    He appears to be one of few users to continue this meme. In June 2017, he uploaded a mashup of Jayden and the Gorillaz song Saturn Barz, with Jayden’s lyric “All my life….” prominently repeated.

    Later that month, a different user got in on it by uploading a one hour version.
