  • 04/09/14--23:12: The Frollo Show

  • The Frollo Show is a YouTube series created by Chincherrinas that focuses on Frollo and Gaston being silly and carefree, also meeting a lot of people in the meanwhile, slowly changing the lives of everyone involved.

    Origins

    In 2011, the YouTube Poop Frollo Faps to a Firefighters Calendar was released because Chincherrinas wanted to make a Youtube Poop starring Frollo. The reception was positive, and more episodes began popping up, slowly creating a storyline.

    After Frollo Sees Dead People, the series merged as its own independent series away from the YouTube Poop format. It evolved into an actual show with conflicting plots and proper character interactions and development. It is still growing strong after 2 years.

    Reception

    The Frollo Show has been given much positive feedback in the YouTube community, even though people still mistake the series as a YouTube Poop. The episodes before Frollo Sees Dead People are placed amongst some of the best Frollo YouTube Poops by many (Poops like Gaston and Frollo Get a Life, Frollo Opens a Catholic Church, ect.). The modern Frollo Show has been praised for its edits, jokes, and storyline.

    Parodies and tributes, like this one and this one were made in honor of the series.

    Series’ Creations

    The Frollo Show also took to the creative route in intoducing certain unique aspects, like The Bros Pose and the Cousin characters. For more information on both, please visit their respective pages.

    The Bros Pose

    The Bros Pose is the signature memetic pose of The Frollo Show. The pose originated in Frollo Gets AIDS, where Frollo and Gaston pose to celebrate the purchase of the Magic Fire.

    In the words of the creator, Chincherrinas, “It consists of two best buds, the one at the left doing a thumbs up, and the one at the right stretching arms in celebration. Its also customary that the one at the left sports dark colors, while the one at the right bright ones, specially red… still, there can be some exceptions to that ruru. The bros pose is usually used when said buds came up with a stupid solution, or for the hell of expressing companionship.”

    The Bros Pose is usually accompanied by the Item Get fanfare from Luigi’s Mansion, although some situations exclude this detail. Also, static images of the pose traditionally use a flashy blue background. The Bros Pose is also traditionally put in the end of every Leet Fighters episode, mainly relating to a character or characters.

    Characters

    The series revolves around characters from multiple medias, like movies, anime, television, video games and others. Sometimes, custom characters are created.

  • 04/10/14--02:51: I'm Getting Excited
  • About

    I’m Getting Excited (Japanese: テンション上がってきた, Tension Agatte Kita) refers to a blurry photo taken from a TV interview with Ichiro Suzuki. Since 2006, this quote with a blurry head has been one of the popular expressions for Japanese internet users’ excitement.

    Origin

    This meme originated from an interview with Ichiro at Safeco Field, the home stadium of the Seattle Mariners that he was belonging to. A screenshot of Ichiro coincidentally shaking his head was taken by a Japanese internet user. And, the caption in this screenshot is his answer to interviewer “I’m getting excited”.



    “I’m getting excited”

    In the Japanese language, “Tension” (テンション) is a loanword from English which means degrees of excitement or motivation, and it has no negative nuance. For example, Hi-tension (テンションが高い, Tenshyon ga takai) is meaning of “Excited”, and Low-tension (テンションが低い,Tenshyon ga hikui) is meaning of “Not excited” or “Unmotivated”. However, it’s a casual expression which is seldom heard in interviews with middle-aged athletes like Ichiro even in those days.

    Spread

    It’s unclear when this interview was aired. But this photo began circulating on the Japanese web in the late of July 2006. The most well-known host of this screenshot is a Japanese image uploader pya! which posted it on 23rd of that month[1], and it was reprinted to many 2channel related blogs’ posts via funny picture threads in that textboard community. Peoples were soon fascinated by surrealistic lulz of this photo, that was caused by the contrast of Ichiro’s quite normal facial expression in strange blurry photo and that catchy remark. Then, a photo collage fad inspired by ichiro’s blurry head started in the Japanese imageboard community Futaba Channel (2chan). “Getting Excited” picture generators were also released in the following years.[2][3]



    Before / After

    In addition, Ichiro’s blurred headshaking photo became to one of the formulae of expressing excitement in online parodies throughout sharing of his picture and collaged photos. Japanese illustrators community pixiv has over a hundred of illustration tagged under this catchphrase[4], and many of them utilize headshaking to express characters’ extraordinary excitement.

  • 04/11/14--09:19: Boy Meets World
  • About

    Boy Meets World is a 1990s teen sitcom that follows the Corey Matthews (Ben Savage) as he goes through middle school, high school, and college. The show focuses on his relationships with his best friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong), older brother Eric (Will Friedle), girlfriend Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel), and next door neighbor and teach Mr. Feeny (William Daniels). A show following Corey and Toganga’s preteen daughter, Girl Meets World is scheduled to premiere in the summer of 2014.

    History

    Boy Meets World was created by April Kelly and Michael Jacobs. It premiered on ABC on September 24th, 1993, and aired its series finale on May 5th, 2000, after seven seasons and 158 episodes. It found much of its fans in syndication, running from 2000 to 2007 on the Disney Channel and and from 2004 to 2007 on ABC Family.

    Girl Meets World

    On November 2nd, 2012, TVline[2] broke news that The Disney Channel was developing a Boy Meets World spinoff titled Girl Meets World that would follow Corey and Topanga’s preteen daughter. On November 26th, Ben Savage confirmed that show was being made and he would reprise his role as Corey Matthews on his Twitter account.[3]




    The same day Danielle Fishel confirmed on her Tumblr[4] she would star on the show as Topanga. On January 28th, 2013 actress Rowan Blanchard announced on her Twitter account[5] she would be playing the lead in Girl Meets World, the Matthews’ daughter Riley.

    Following speculation as to whether other Boy Meets World cast members, like Rider Strong, would be involved in the project, Savage posted a picture from a future episode on Instagram[6] on March 18th, 2014, which revealed there would be at least one major Boy Meets World reunion on the show featuring Strong, Betsy Randle (who played Cory’s mother Amy Matthews), and William Russ (who played Cory’s father Alan Matthews).



    On April 10th, the first trailer for the show was released, featuring Fishel and Savage giving advice to their daughter and her friend.



    Premise

    Cory Matthews begins the show as a sixth-grader who lives in a suburban area of Philadelphia with his mother (Betsy Randle), father (William Russ), older brother Eric, and younger sister Morgan (originally played by Lily Nicksay, and played by Lindsay Ridgeway from season three unward). He navigates middle school, and high school with the help of his best friend Shawn, friend-turned girlfriend Topanga, and teacher Mr. Feeny. Situations faced by Cory range from the light, like worrying about a test or pulling a prank, to the heavy, like finding out a classmate is being abused by her father. Many of the heavier storylines are driven by Shawn, whose family is much poorer than Corey’s and lives in a trailer park. Throughout the first few seasons’ Shawn’s mom leaves, followed by his dad, leaving him in the care of a young teacher, Mr. Turner (Anthony Tyler Quinn). In the boys’ final year of high school Shawn moves in with his college-age half brother Jack Hunter (Matthew Lawrence). Another main character introduced in their senior year is Angela Moore (Trina McGee), Topanga’s best friend and Shawn’s on-again, off-again girlfriend. A lot of the drama in the show’s college years surrounds their relationship. Another major thread of the show is Cory and Topanga’s relationship. Though Cory is shown as disliking her the first season, they become a couple by the second season, and often refer to their courtship beginning when they were toddlers. Though they go through a few breakups their relationship remains a constant for the show, and in the seventh season the two are married.

    Reception

    Boy Meets World received a score of 8.1 on IMDB and a rating of 50 on Metacritic.[11] The show was nominated for three Kids’ Choice Awards, winning one in 2000 for Favorite Television Friends (Strong and Savage). It was also nominated for three YoungStar Awards, winning one in 1998 for Best Performance by a Young Actress in a Comedy TV Series (Fishel).

    Online Presence

    All seven seasons of the series are available to watch for $1.99 each (or $24.99 per season) through Google Play.[10] As of April 2014, Boy Meets World’s official Facebook page[7] has over 1.5 million likes. Fans can also access episode guides and character sketches at the Boy Meets World Wiki[8] and discuss the show on the /r/boymeetsworld[9] Reddit thread.

  • 04/11/14--13:28: The Madden Curse
  • [Work is currently in progress]

    About

    The Madden Curse is a superstition associated with getting on the cover of any Madden NFL game in the series, similar to the Campbell’s Chunky Soup Curse or the Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx. Players who make the cover often times suffer a serious injury, have a decline in performance, and/or their team does poorly the following season.

    Origin

    The Madden NFL series, formerly known as John Madden Football, is an American Football video game series developed by Electronic Arts Tiburon that started in 1988. Prior to 1998, John Madden himself was only featured on the cover of each yearly installment of the series. In 1998, John Madden would again be on the cover of Madden NFL 99. However, in the PAL version of the game, San Francisco 49ers’ running back, Garrison Hearst made the cover. After having the best year in his professional career and breaking several franchise records, Hearst twisted his ankle in the Divisional round of the NFL Playoffs against the Atlanta Falcons. The following year, Barry Sanders, running back of the Detroit Lions, would appear on the cover of Madden NFL 2000 along with John Madden, while Dorsey Levens, running back for the Green Bay Packers, would appear on the cover of the PAL version. Before the 1999 season even began, Barry Sanders abruptly retired, leaving the Lions without their star player, and the Packers would fail to make the playoffs despite Levens running for 1,034 yards. The suffering of players and teams associated with making the Madden cover has not go unnoticed by the public. They determined that the Madden cover is “cursed”, thus The Madden Curse was born.

    Spread

    As the Madden NFL series’ popularity grew to astronomical heights and more players and teams languish after appearing on the Madden cover, The Madden Curse has become a part of video game and sports lore.

    SaveLTfromMadden.com

    In 2007, Electronic Arts decided to feature San Diego Chargers running back, LaDainian Tomlinson, for the cover of Madden NFL 08. This sparked outrage among Chargers and Tomlinson fans to the point they created the site, SaveLTfromMadden.com, to voice their disdain for the decision. Tomlinson would later turn down the offer citing contract negotiations and Tennessee Titans’ quarterback, Vince Young, would make the cover instead.

    Madden Cover Vote

    Starting in 2010, Electronic Arts allowed fans to vote on who gets to be on the Madden cover. The following year, Electronic Arts began running a bracket-style tournament where fans vote on which player makes the cover. Fans would commonly vote against players they like and/or plays for their favorite team to avoid the “curse” while voting for players they didn’t like and/or plays for a rival team.

    Notable Examples

    • Madden NFL 99 (PAL Version), Garrison Hearst of the San Francisco 49ers: The first “victim”, twisted his ankle in the playoffs and missed the following two seasons. He would win NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2001.
    • Madden NFL 2000, Barry Sanders of the Detroit Lions: Retired before the start of the 1999 season, leaving the Lions without their star player.
    • Madden NFL 2000 (PAL Version), Dorsey Levens of the Green Bay Packers: Ran for 1,034 yards. However, his team, the Green Bay Packers, would miss the playoffs. Levens’ role on the team would later diminished and he was eventually released in 2001.
    • Madden NFL 2001, Eddie George of the Tennessee Titans: The Titans would lose to the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional round of the 2000–01 NFL playoffs after making it to Super Bowl XXXIV the previous season. George’s numbers steadily declined and the Titans released him in 2003. George would later play for the Dallas Cowboys before retiring the next year.
    • Madden NFL 2002, Daunte Culpepper of the Minnesota Vikings: Threw 23 interceptions and tied the NFL record for most fumbles in a season. The Vikings finished the season 5-11. After a good 2004 season, Culpepper blew out both his knees in 2005 in a loss to the Carolina Panthers. That same year, he was charged for his involvement in the Minnesota Vikings boat party scandal. The charges were later dropped in 2006.
    • Madden NFL 2003, Marshall Faulk of the St. Louis Rams: Never recorded another 1,000-yard rushing season and suffered from recurring knee injuries which forced him to retire in 2005.
    • Madden NFL 2004, Michael Vick of the Atlanta Falcons: Broke his fibula in a pre-season game against the Baltimore Ravens.

At that moment, Pinkie’s smile turns into a distorted tearful frown, it’s unknown if the tears where because of remorse or the undying urge to kill aging.

Pinkie then makes a Spirit Bomb (Dubbed "Smile Bomb by fans) type energy ball and hurls it at Fluttershy. Fluttershy screams in agony as her flesh melts, exposing her tissues and veins.

  • This is my first entry, and I’m not very good with textile, despite the guide that’s available. I’ve started this entry in the hopes that someone more experienced can help me out, thanks.


    About

    Muh X is a snowclone phrase used by people in order to trivialize a certain topic with the intentional misspelling of the word “my”.

    Origin

    While the origins of Muh X are unclear, the earliest instance of a phrase using “muh” in the context of Muh X appears to be from a BodyBuilding.com forum thread[1] dating back to 2011 where a forum user asked as to whether or not his cutting routine will “ruin muh gains” (muscle gains).


    Spread

    After the initial sighting of “muh gains” on the Bodybuilding forums, Muh X quickly spread to other sites such as FunnyJunk, Tumblr, and 4chan, with the phrase being used as a means to either humorously defend one’s own point or to mock another poster’s argument or motivations[2]. “Muh gains” is a phrase still commonly used on the BodyBuilding.com forums when referring to muscular gains, whether in jest or in seriousness. Muh X is most commonly used in its image-less phrase form.

    Poster 1: I love mass gainer shakes! They work so great!
    Poster 2: Mass gainer is a shitty waste of money. Dat dere celltech on the other hand…
    Poster 1: But m-muh carbs….

    Muh X is also associated with images containing an intricate explanation of what “Muh (insert concept/topic to be trivialized)” means and the logo of an American publishing company Scholastic[3].

    Overview

    The American Airlines Terrorism Tweet was a fake forewarning of a purported terrorist plot sent by a Dutch teenager to the major U.S. airline company American Airlines via Twitter in April 2014. The tweet, which hinted at an imminent attack to be carried out by an agent of the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda, quickly prompted the airline company to report the teenager’s IP address to the authorities and the F.B.I, ultimately leading to her arrest in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

    Background

    On April 13th, 2014, at 10:37 a.m. (ET), a 14-year-old Dutch teenager who goes by the Twitter handle @QueenDemetriax_ tweeted the following message at @AmericanAirlines:



    Within five hours, the tweet garnered more than 7,400 retweets and 2,600 favorites prior to its removal and the suspension of the account from Twitter.

    Notable Developments

    Within minutes of receiving the tweet, American Airlines replied to the teenager stating that they take these type of threats really seriously and that they “forwarded her IP address to the authorities and the F.B.I.”



    Frightened by the serious tone of American Airlines’ response, the teenager immediately began explaining that it was only meant to be a joke, with quotable tweets like “omfg i was kidding”, “I’m so sorry, I’m scared now”, “I was joking and it was my friend, not me, take her IP address, not mine”, and lastly, “I was kidding pls don’t i’m just a girl pls.”



    h4. The Arrest

    On the following day, it was reported that the teenager lived in Rotterdam in the Netherlands and she was promptly arrested by the Dutch police authorities.
