  • 01/09/18--15:13: Ewan McGregains
  • About

    Ewan McGregains is a meme revolving around an image of actor Ewan McGregor profusely exercising to prepare for a film role (possibly the Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off film). The trend was created by Star Wars Sithposting: A New Hope in part as a response to the gradual decline in popularity of the Ben Swolo meme and in continuation of the group’s profound adoration for the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Most of the jokes revolve around his role as Obi-Wan and various Scottish stereotypes.

    Origin

    On January 6th, 2018, Tony Horton (world-renowned fitness trainer and inventor of P90X) posted a photo of Ewan McGregor working out with fitness trainer Scotty Fifer, while sporting a beard very similar to the one he had while playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels over a decade ago.
    https://www.instagram.com/p/Bdohm4Slz0i/
    One day later, Facebook user Oban Johnson posted the photo in the group Star Wars Sithposting: A New Hope with the caption “Sithposting, you know what to do.”

    Spread

    And indeed they did. Sithposting member Jack Renshaw was the first to answer the call, offering up a simple take on the classic “Hello There” meme.

    The image of McGregor provided an opportunity to remix classic prequel memes such as “Hello there,” “Oh, I don’t think so,” and “Sith Lords are our speciality.” Given the age of the meme, the full extent of the meme’s reach has not been discovered yet. Stay tuned to find out how far the Ewan McGregains meme will spread.

  • 01/09/18--21:55: Heartbroken Cowboy
  • About

    Heartbroken Cowboy is a reaction meme which, indicates the OP is distraught to their core about something…like the fact that this meme is not yet listed on KYM.

    Origin

    It originates from James Ritchey’s youtube video “57. Current Chart – Y2016M7D24” which, was deleted in 2016. The video was part of a series of videos in which, James discussed the songs he was listening to. In the screenshot James appears heartbroken, even though he does not appear this way in the video, and the video itself was not sad. Which is amusing, and the meme pokes fun at that.

    Spread

    The first known usage read, “Heartbroken Cowboy is heartbroken”, and early usages followed this formatting. Over time the “Heartbroken Cowboy is” format has slowly been replaced with “When” or “MRW”.

  • About

    MF DOOM is the alter ego and stage name of English-born rapper and producer Daniel Dumile. He is mostly known for his “super villain” persona and distinct lyrical style.

    History

    Dumile first appeared as Zed Love X in the rap trio KMD (“Kausing Much Damage”, or “A positive Kause in a Much Damaged society”). Their second album, Black Bastards (or Bl_ck B_st_rds), came out in 1993, but was quickly shelved afterwards due to its controversial album art and lyrics. KMD was dropped by their label in the same year, along with Dumile departing from the hip-hop scene.[1]


    He returned as MF DOOM in 1999, together with his debut solo album Operation: Doomsday. The record received critical acclaim from music reviewers and numerous album reissues.[2] From the album art, his character wears a mask and costume similar to the popular Marvel Comics super villain Doctor Doom.


    Since then, he has released solo albums under the MF DOOM name along with many other aliases, such as King Geedorah (from Take Me to Your Leader) [shown below, left] and Viktor Vaughn (from Vaudeville Villain and Venomous Villain). He also has several collaborative projects with artists such as Danger Mouse (as DANGERDOOM) [shown below, right] and Ghostface Killah (as DOOMSTARKS).


    During his appearances and performances, he would wear a mask based on a prop helmet from the movie Gladiator to conceal his identity.[3] This later became a staple to his character.




    Madvillainy

    Madvillainy is the debut album of the collaborative group Madvillain, comprising of MF DOOM (as MC) and Madlib (as producer). It is considered to be one of the most critically acclaimed undergroup hip-hop & rap albums of all time, according to both critics and fans of either artists.



    Online Presence

    The rapper has a high following on social media, with over 745,000 likes on his official Facebook page[4] and 105,000 followers on his Instagram account.[5] His subreddit, /r/MFDOOM, has more than 7,000 subscribers.[6] He also has several posts on 4chan’s/mu/ board,[7]Tumblr, [8] and Reddit[8] related to him.



    Many of his albums have gained critical acclaim not only from critics and fans, but also from other rappers, often being called “your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper.” Famous music critic Anthony Fantano claims Madvillainy to be the “most celebrated abstract hip-hop album ever,” and very influential to future emcees. Vox featured his songs in their video essay on the deconstruction of rap music, stating that he uses his verses “like a villain would use his super power.”



    Reputation

    MF DOOM keeps his personal life and appearance very private, with only little to no footage of his actual face. He was also known to intentionally send impostors to perform for him in live shows.[1] His son, Malachi Ezekiel Dumile, died on December 18, 2017 (picture below).[10]
