  • 10/10/17--09:42: I Killed a Man
  • About

    I Killed Man is an exploitable webcomic in which a large prisoner reveals he “killed a man” before scooting the other side of a bench after his cellmate reveals a variety of customized reasons for his imprisonment.

    Origin

    On July 30th, 2009, the gaming news site Dueling Analogs[2] published a comic titled “Xbox Killer,” in which a large, bald inmate reveals he was convicted of “kidnapping a guy, tying him to a tree and forcing him to watch me dig up and violate his dead mother’s corpse,” to which his cellmate reveals he “bought an Xbox 360 just to watch it die,” leading the bigger prisoner to distance himself to the other side of the cell (shown below).



    Spread

    On July 27th, 2010, Team Liquid Forums[1] member Manit0u posted an edited version of the comic in which the smaller prisoner identifies himself as the director of “2 Girls 1 Cup” (shown below).



    On August 18th, 2012, BodyBuilding Forums[5] user ace_gauntlit started a thread with a blank template of the comic. On January 30th, 2013, a blank template of the comic was submitted to 4chan, where other users were invited to customize the speech bubbles (shown below). That day, a collection of examples from the thread was submitted to /r/4chan[3 subreddit.



    On June 30th, 2017, Redditor Marvellous_Napkins submitted the comic with the caption “I laughed at a 9gag meme” to /r/MemeEconomy, where it gathered upwards of 16,100 points (82% upvoted) and 150 comments within three months (shown below, left). On October 8th, Redditor RastaLasagna submitted an edit of the comic referencing swearing on a Christian server (shown below, right). Over the next 24 hours, the post received more than 830 points (84% upvoted) on /r/dankmemes.[6]

  • 10/10/17--09:47: Porgs
  • About

    Porgs are small, puffin-like creatures found on the planet Ahch-To in the film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Since the release of behind-the-scenes and preview footage of the film, porgs have been a topic of conversation, jokes and memes, particularly one shot of a porg screaming, which has been used in various reaction images and photoshops.

    Origin

    On July 15th, 2017, the official Star WarsYouTube[1] account posted a video of behind-the-scenes footage for the film Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which premiered at D23. About two minutes into the clip, a porg can be scene looking up at the camera. This is considered to be the earliest public appearance of porgs.



    Spread

    Five days later, StarWars.com[5] published an interview with Pablo Hidalgo, a member of the Lucasfilm Story Group on porgs. In the interview, Hidalgo said, “Porgs are native to Ahch-To, and can be found dwelling along the cliffs of the island where Luke and Rey are. In many ways, they’re the Star Wars version of puffins. They build nests. They can fly. Their babies are called porglets.”

    Shortly after the release of footage, numerous media outlets reported on the popularity of the characters, including Polygon,[2] Mashable,[3]CNET[4] and more.

    While the characters have become something of a fan favorite, some have reacted negatively to porgs. On September 7th, 2017, Redditor whitemike40 posted an image of a storm trooper holdings a porgs decapitated head on the /r/StarWars[6] subreddit. The post (shown below) received more than 7,200 points (90% upvoted) and 240 comments in one month.



    Screaming Porg

    On October 9th, the final trailer for Star Wars The Last Jedi was released (shown below). In the trailer, at about 1:30, a porg can be seen screaming with the character Chewbacca. The video received more than 10 million views in less than 24 hours.



    Shortly after the trailer was released, people online began using the moment as a reaction image. On Twitter, people would post the picture of the porg screaming with a humorous caption (examples below). That night, Twitter[7] published a Moments page about the reaction to the porgs.



    The image also became the popular image to photoshop. That night, Twitter[8] user @GenePark posted a variation of the Distracted Boyfriend featuring the boyfriend ignoring the character Jar Jar Binks for the screaming porg. The tweet (shown below) received more than 6,300 retweets and 17,000 likes in less than 24 hours.



    The following day, Redditor[9] tommy0b started a photoshop battle on the /r/photoshopbattles, inspiring other Redditors to post photoshopped versions of the moment. Within four hours, the post had more than 4,900 points (92% upvoted) and 100 comments.

  • 10/11/17--12:51: Rotten Tomatoes
  • About

    Rotten Tomatoes is a review aggregator, curating critical analysis and assessments for film and television. Since 1998, Rotten Tomatoes has been accused of diluting critical analysis for its audience and reader-friendly scoring system, which rates media as “fresh” or “rotten.” As the site has become more popular, those within the movie industry have accused the site of hurting box office residuals.

    History

    Rotten Tomatoes was launched by Senh Duong on August 18th, 1998. Duong, who started the site as a hobby, aimed “to create a site where people can get access to reviews from a variety of critics in the U.S.”[1] 1998’s Your Friends & Neighbors became the first film reviews published on the site, and shortly after its launch it started to attract significant traffic. According to Senh, it received more about 100 reviews on its first day and mentions from USA Today and Netscape.[2]

    Senh said:

    “I had the idea while searching for reviews of Jackie Chan imports -- Rumble in the Bronx, Supercop, Twin Dragons, and First Strike.

    In high school, I started looking at the box office charts every week to see what movies were popular. I also started watching Siskel & Ebert, which obviously had a huge influence on me. When I was started picking a domain name for Rotten Tomatoes, I was gonna call it “Thumbs Up” as a tribute to them, but luckily (for copyright reasons), all variations of the show’s trademarked rating system were taken. I ended up with Rotten Tomatoes because I didn’t think anyone had used it as domain name. And I was right! So I guess the love of Jackie Chan movies and Siskel & Ebert eventually gave birth to Rotten Tomatoes."

    By the year 2000, he took the site on full time (shown below, Rotten Tomatoes in 2000)



    In 2004, the site was purchased by IGN Entertainment, which was later acquired by Fox Interactive Media in 2005. In 2010, IGN sold Rotten Tomatoes to Flixster, who in turn sold it to Warner Bros. in 2012. Four years later, Warner Bros sold Rotten Tomatoes and Flixter to Fandango.[3]

  • 10/12/17--13:24: God of War
  • W.I.P.

    About

    God of War is an action-adventure hack and slash video game series loosely based on Greek mythology, originally created by David Jaffe at Sony’s Santa Monica Studio.
    The protagonist of the series is Kratos Kratos and anti-hero of the God of War series. Born a Spartan, Kratos held the military rank of General, and would ascend to being a God before exacting his revenge on the Olympians who betrayed him.

    The series has become a flagship title for the PlayStation brand, consisting of seven games across multiple platforms. An eighth installment is currently in development and it will be a reboot based on the north mythology.

    Reception

    In June 2012, Sony reported that the series had sold more than 21.65 million copies worldwide (as of April 2016, Sony has not released updated sales data). God of War, God of War II, Chains of Olympus, God of War Collection, and God of War III have each received critical acclaim from several reviewers as compiled by review aggregate Metacritic.Betrayal and Ghost of Sparta only received generally favorable reception.Ascension also only had a generally favorable reception but it has the lowest score in the series from Metacritic (80/100).

    At the time of its release, Raymond Padilla of GameSpy wrote that the first entry of the series is the “best action game ever to grace the PS2”.Critics have similarly said that it is one of the best action games of all time; it received over a dozen “Game of the Year” awards.
    God of War II has similarly been called one of the best action games of all time and is considered the “swan song” of the PlayStation 2 era. In November 2012, Complex.com named God of War II the best PlayStation 2 game of all time--where God of War was named the 11th best--and consider it better than its successor, God of War III.Betrayal was acclaimed for its fidelity to the series in terms of gameplay, art style, and graphics.

    Chains of Olympus has been praised for “fantastic” graphics and “tight and responsive” controls.In 2008.God of War III received praise for its graphics, in particular of Kratos; IGN stated that Kratos is “perhaps the single most impressive-looking character ever in videogames.”
