  • 08/21/13--07:59: iFunny
  • About

    iFunny is a mobile app available for iOS and Android opporating systems which features user submitted pictures.

    Origin

    The first version of the iFunny app cited on the Apple App Store was released on April 26, 2011.

    Featured Section

    The iFunny “Feature Team” chooses 40 pictures a day to display in the featured section. They post 20 in the morning and another 20 in the afternoon. The pictures chosen to be published in the featured section are selected from popular pictures in the collective section of the app.

    Collective Section

    The collective section contains every user submitted picture. The pictures in the collective section are rated on the like/dislike system, similar to the karma system on Reddit. The collective section is often looked down upon for its lack of quality content. The average picture seen in the collective section of iFunny is a picture asking for likes or asking for the viewers to “repost” the picture.

    KIKs

    Midway through 2012, the collective section of iFunny began to become littered with pictures of users asking for others to contact them on the free messaging app KIK.

    Frustration between the users posting “KIK Me’s” and the “OC” (Original Content) users grew throughout the following months.

    On Febuary 5th, 2013, iFunny added an option to report “KIK Posts”. The addition of this option cleared the app of many KIK related posts but the occasional “KIK Me” can still be found in the collective section of the app.

  • BLOING



    About

    Blo is a phrase used to playfully insult comments or groups on a forum in poor grammar on purpose. The word is “blow” misspelled. An example would be “fuk u lolololol, ur group blos.”

    Origin

    The game Age of Time was created by Eric “Badspot” Hartman who also created a fairly popular blocky sandbox game called Blockland. Abbreviated AoT, it is an action/rpg game created on the Torque Game Engine which is now not very popular and has not been updated since about 2007. It shares a portion of its forum with the popular Blockland forums where users now sometimes create joke topics. In the Clan Discussion section, a user named Acerblock created a humorous clan called TOSSMATAOTG that was imitating “overprotective urban soccer moms” who are against pornography and protect their children from NSFW content on the internet. At one point, user Ipquarx from another joke clan called SGFKSUWNSOA told his members to unite in a point in the topic.


    Spread

    Many users after that start using the “Blo” comment in their posts on the thread. The joke continued on for 6 pages and is still going on. Acerblock even changed the title to “I blo, you blo, he, she, me blo.” So far, no one has been banned and the phrase can occasionally be heard ingame.

  • 08/21/13--13:09: What is it, Eren?

  • Please help with this entry- I have little to no experience with KYM formatting. Thanks!

    About

    What is it, Eren? is a phrase from a panel in the Attack On Titan / Shingeki No Kyojin manga, said by Jean Kirschtein. The panel in which the phrase is included is often isolated and used in many ways. Sometimes, the panels leading up to it are also included. Popularity is most likely due to the style of the drawing, including the perspective used and the strange expression on the character’s face.


    History

    It is unclear where the meme surfaced. However, it quickly became popular on Tumblr, where entire blogs have been dedicated to it, such as this one.

  • 08/21/13--15:40: CVS Receipts
  • About

    CVS Receipts refers to point-of sale records printed by CVS Pharmacy, the largest pharmacy chain in the United States, which have gained online notoriety for their lengthy form since the introduction of ExtraCare rewards program in 2011.

    Origin

    On July 15th, 2008, a Facebook[3] group titled “One Million Strong Against Unnecessarily Long CVS Receipts” was launched, which mocked the drugstore chain in the page’s description:

    “My last CVS receipt for $3.34 was 25.5 inches long. And that’s too fucking long. I don’t care that they use my CVS card to track me across the planet, I just want a receipt that isn’t 1/3rd my height.”

    Spread

    On September 1st, 2009, The Wall Street Journal[1] published an article about the ever-increasing length of receipts at large chain retailers like the CVS pharmacy, which included an interactive infographic outlining the content of the printed sales acknowledgment (shown below).



    On November 1st, 2009, Flickr[6] user Scott Greenway uploaded a photo of woman holding a 33-inch long CVS receipt given for a single gallon of milk (shown below).



    On June 22nd, 2010, The Los Angeles Times[4] reported that CVS might switch over to a digitized rewards system to get rid of the long receipts. On July 22nd, 2011, the Los Angeles Times[5] published a follow-up article reporting thatCVS would not be removing the printed rewards on receipts, quoting CVS marketing spokesperson Helena Foulkes who defended the printed rewards:

    “When you give rewards, you want people to feel excited. You want them to know that they’ve earned the reward.”

    On May 7th, 2013, Twitter user @TheMichaelRock joked that a CVS receipt for a pack of gum could supply two months worth of toilet paper. In the next four months, the tweet garnered more than 35 retweets and 120 favorites.




    On July 8th, 2013, Twitter user Brandon Gutermuth tweeted a joke about a CVS cashier who had to chop down an entire tree to print out a receipt, receiving over 30 retweets and 140 favorites in the first two months.




    On August 21st, several news sites reported on the growing Twitter trend surrounding CVS receipts, including Fast Company[7] and The Huffington Post,[8] both of which featured several photographs of large CVS receipts posted on Twitter (shown below). On the same day, the @CVSReceipt[9]novelty Twitter account was launched.

    About

    Ernie and Bert’s Drum Play Parodies, better known as “Susami Street” (Japanese: 荒みストリート) in Japan, refers to a series of parody videos on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND) which are inspired by a remix video of a drum play by Ernie and Bert from Sesame Street.[1]

    Origin

    The source footage of Ernie and Bert sketch is taken from 801th episode in Sesame Street originally aired on December 8th, 1975 (shown below, left).[2] In 2007, a YouTuber HAYW1R3[3] made a remix of this video with the song “A Divine Proclamation of Finishing The Present Existence” by Dutch goregrind band Last Days Of Humanity[4] (shown below, right). As of August 2013, this video has earned over 5.4 million page views.



    Spread

    HAYW1R3’s video was reprinted to NND with the title “Hardcore” (ハードコア) on January 29th, 2008[5] and got a much attention also in that community. Then, NND users began creating their own “Hardcore” parodies by mimicking his video. Those videos are tagged under “Susami Street”, a play on words linking “Sesame” and “Susami” (荒み) which is a Japanese adjective word meaning “Brutal” in this case.

    As of August 2013, the amount of videos in this series on NND is more than 180.[6]

  • 08/22/13--08:03: Reddit Marriage Proposal
  • About

    The Reddit proposal was a marriage proposal made over the popular social news site Reddit using artwork commissioned through 21 artists found via DeviantART.1,3 It was created by the user SirTechnocracy (Malcolm Collins), to his girlfriend of 18 months user LadyTechnocracy (Simone Collins [she changed her name soon after the proposal from Simone H Smith]).13



    The proposal included a panoply of nerd culture references including commissioned art themed around Adventure Time, various anime styles, Studio Ghibli, Disney, a Magic the Gathering card, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, StarCraft, 8-bit gaming, Avatar the Last Airbender, pirates, and chibi style. The image macros included in the proposal include
    Actual Advice Mallard, Conspiracy Keanu, And it’s Gone, Good Guy Greg, One Does Not Simply Walk into Mordor, Confession Bear, Popular Opinion Bear, Most Interesting Man In the World,
    Imminent Ned, Zoidberg, and an Ancient Aliens meme featuring a Xenomorph.

    Advice Animal Proposal


    Origin

    The proposal was first posted at 7:00am on 5/8/2013 to both the r/pics subreddit and the r/adviceanimals subedit simultaneously.
    In interviews, SirTechnocracy has stated that, while the commissioned art aspect of the proposal had been planned for months, the advice animals were created only a few hours before the proposal took place. This was done out of fear that mods on r/pics would take down the proposal, as it was targeted at a specific individual, which is against the rules of the subreddit. By referencing the “actual” proposal in /r/AdviceAnimals from /r/pics, Malcolm hoped he could prevent the /r/pics thread from being removed. “I should note that the memes were never intended to be a part of the post. I added them last second so I could place the post on r/AdviceAnimals, making it more likely that Simone [his fiancée] would see at least one post and less likely that the r/pics post would be deleted.” 3

    Spread

    Within an hour of the initial post, the adviceanimals version of the proposal had made it to the front page of reddit (the r/pics version made the front page later that day: 8/5/2013). The story quickly spread across the internet and was featured in Yahoo! News, Mashable, CNET, Business Insider, BetaBeat, the Daily Dot, PC Magazine, Huffington Post Weddings, Huffington Post Tech, The SF Chronicle, The Herald Sun, HLN TV, Canada.com, Neatorama, The Mary Sue, Laughing Squid, and Kotaku.

    Reaction from LadyTechnocracy

    Soon after the post reached the front page, LadyTechnocracy posted a socially awesome penguin image macro accepting the proposal.


    Her in person reaction was described in the thread and in follow up interviews by SirTechnocracy: “She just ran up and hugged me almost in tears for like a minute (which seemed like forever). Then I had to remind her that she was supposed to say yes or no.”4

    She later replied. "Understandably, a lot of people are giving SirTechnocracy grief about this. I understand that the concept of a Reddit proposal is … unconventional (hell, I’d never think of it), but this is honestly the most romantic thing someone has ever done for me. The advice animals crack me up, and the commissions are amazing.”

    While the method of the proposal was a surprise the answer was not, as LadyTechnocracy played a part in deciding the engagement ring’s design. “In truth this proposal was just to make her happy; she was with me when we commissioned the ring. She wanted my actual proposal to her to be a surprise, something we would remember forever and that showed real commitment and understanding.”

    The Commissions

    In total there are 21 art pieces by 18 different artists.2 The Mashable interview quoted SirTechnocracy as saying “I was hoping to create something of a tribute to that culture; something that would both epitomize and celebrate it.”
    Each of the original posts linked to a different imgur gallery with a slightly different set of images. This was done to stay within subreddit rules (the photomanipulated image is not included in the r/adviceanimals post and the Magic The Gathering card was not included in the r/pics post). A complete gallery with full size images and artist citations can be found here (this gallery contains a commissioned My Little Pony comic not included in either of the proposal posts, bringing the total number of artists involved up to 21.)




    Aftermath

    After the proposal, Malcolm Collins published a piece in the Huffington Post elaborating on his decision to propose over Reddit.9
    Shortly after Simone Collins published a piece in which she announced she was changing her name from Simone H Smith to Simone Collins immediately after the proposal, also stating that no marriage date was set.13

  • 08/23/13--08:07: #EverybodySpurts
  • About

    #EverybodySpurts, is a hashtag referring to a fad series of short Vine videos, which became a meme in 2013, that started early after the release of the mobile application Vine created by Twitter.

    Origin

    On February 9, 2013, Marlo Meekins and her husband Nick Cross uploaded both each one Vine video featuring Marlo Meekins turning her head towards the camera and randomly drooling liquid from the mouth while listening to “Everybody Hurts” produced by the American rock band in 1992.

    Spread

    On February 13, 2013, Lacey Micallef, also known as Fart Palace, has found Marlo’s Vine video since it’s one of the first videos ever uploaded on Vine. In her video, she played the lyrical part Everybody hurts, which can be heard after 2 minutes and 15 seconds of the song. Unfortunately, it has been deleted, but the link can be found in Lacey’s Twitter posts. As of August 2013, her post has been re-tweeted 22 times and favorited 35 times.



    On Febraury 14, 2013, Russell Alton, also known as Chop Logik, titled his Vine video “Everybody Spurts (cover of @fartpalace’s cover of @marlomeekins)”. He was inspired by Lacey’s cover to also play the lyrical part she played in the background. For the lulz, he came up to call his Vine “Everybody Spurts”, because the word hurts rhymes with spurts, since he thinks, that Marlo and Lacey were “spurting” out the liquid off their mouths. (right)

    Another Vine user named Shaady uploaded his Vine the same day Russell did and imitated Lacey and Russell as well. In addition, he coined the hashtag #everybodyspurts in his video. (left)

    After then, other Vine users followed the fad and hash-tagged their videos with #everybodyspurts. Over 100 videos can be found on seenive.com under the hashtag. People find the fad funny and gross at the same time, since the participants wore a Pokerface, drooled the liquid out of the mouth and play the lyrical part of the song in the background in their video for the ridiculously, dramatic and humorous effect, which provokes the viewers a “What the fuck did I just watch?” effect.

    On YouTube

    The fad grew into a well known meme, when the Fine Brothers released their YouTubers React episode “YOUTUBERSREACT TO VINES (Will Sasso Lemons, EverybodySpurts, Ryan Gosling won’t eat His cereal)” on July 4, 2013 featuring YouTubers also reacting to another popular fad meme on Vine named Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal Gosling. As of August 2013, the episode received over 5,3 million views.

    On YouTube, people also mimic the fad. As of August 2013, when searching “Everybody Spurts”, YouTube has reached 90 search results.

  • 08/23/13--10:52: Kingdom Hearts


  • About

    Kingdom Hearts is a series of action role-playing games developed and published by Square Enix. It is a collaboration between Square Enix and Disney Interactive Studios, and is under the direction of Tetsuya Nomura, a longtime Square Enix character designer. The series itself is a a crossover of various Disney settings based in a universe made specifically for the series, with characters from Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy franchise making appearances as well.

    History

    The initial idea for Kingdom Hearts began with a discussion between Shinji Hashimoto and Hironobu Sakaguchi about Super Mario 64. They were planning to make a game with freedom of movement in three dimensions like Super Mario 64 but lamented that only characters as popular as Disney’s could rival a Mario game. Tetsuya Nomura, overhearing their conversation, volunteered to lead the project and the two producers agreed to let him direct. A chance meeting between Hashimoto and a Disney executive in an elevator--Square and Disney had previously worked in the same building in Japan--allowed Hashimoto to pitch the idea directly to Disney. Development began in February 2000 with Nomura as director and Hashimoto as producer. While Nomura had done previous work in the Final Fantasy series as monster designer and graphic director, he did not gain widespread recognition until he was the lead character designer for Final Fantasy VII. Kingdom Hearts marked his transition into a directorial position, though he also served as the game’s character designer. Scenarios were provided by Kazushige Nojima who was a scenario writer for Square from Final Fantasy VII until he left in 2003. Originally the development focused on the gameplay with a simple story to appeal to Disney’s target age range. After Kingdom Hearts executive producer Hironobu Sakaguchi told Nomura the game would be a failure if it did not aim for the same level as the Final Fantasy series, he began to develop the story further. In June 2013, Nomura stated the name of the game came from him thinking about Disney Theme Parks, especially Animal Kingdom. However, Nomura could not get the IP with just “Kingdom”, so the development team began to think about “heart” as a core part of the story, so they decided to combine the two to form “Kingdom Hearts”.

    Development

    The first Kingdom Hearts was announced at E3 in May 2001. Initial details were that it would be a collaboration between Square and Disney Interactive, and would feature worlds developed by both companies and Disney characters. New characters were designed by Nomura and included Sora, Riku, Kairi, and the Heartless.

  • 08/23/13--11:22: Pandas


  • About

    The Panda (also known as the Giant Panda) is a large mammal known for its distinctive black patches of fur over their eyes, ears and center body. Native to south central China, pandas are considered an endangered species with only approximately 1,600 pandas living in the wild as of 2004.

    History

    Some of the earliest discussion of pandas online dates back to February 1996, when a member of the Usenet group alt.animals.bears[1] asked where he could learn about pandas online. That April, a discussion about academic research on the animals was started in the can.schoolnet.biomed.sr[2] group and in October, a Usenet group specifically dedicated to them, alt.animals.pandas[3], was approved.[4] In the late 1990s and early 2000s, a number of pages dedicated to panda appreciation were created on free web hosting services including Angelfire[5], HTML Planet[6] and Tripod[9] as well as on personal domains like Lighting Magic.[7]



    In April 2001, The Daily Beast[8] reported that tourism to China to see the animals in the wild had caused the deterioration of their home in the Wolong forest. In 2005, both the San Diego Zoo[10] and the National Zoo[11] in Washington D.C. launched live streaming web cams of their panda habitats, allowing internet users to tune in from around the globe to monitor the animals. That August, the National Zoo’s stream was featured on NPR.[12] The same year, the panda-centric blog Pandafix.com[13] launched, sharing photos and videos of the animals. In 2007, the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding[14] established a website to provide educational information about giant pandas along with updates on their work.



    Online Presence

    Though often overshadowed by the popularity of cats, cute images and videos of the panda continued to thrive with the emergence of social networking sites and media-sharing platforms.
