  • About

    Feel Old Yet? refers to a series of two-paneled parody images. The first half of the image is generally a well-known celebrity or character, while the second half is typically either a person who is similar in appearance but otherwise unrelated, or a name pun.

  • 11/16/14--21:40: #OpKKK
  • EDITOR’S NOTE: event currently developing. This article will be updated as new information becomes available.

    Overview

    #OpKKK refers to an online hacktivist campaign and a series of social media protests launched by Anonymous in retaliation to threats of violence made by the Ku Klux Klan against protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.

    Background

    In November 2014, it was reported that the Traditionalist Knights of the Ku Klux Klan based in Park Hills, Missouri was distributing fliers in and around Ferguson. The fliers warned that “lethal force” would be used against “violent protesters”.[1] In the midst of the ensuing controversy, the KKK and Anonymous reportedly exchanged several rounds of threats.[4] On November 14th, 2014, the Youtube account Anonymous Australia published a video titled “ANONYMOUS #OpKKK”, in which it declared the launch of a campaign against the KKK.



    We are not attacking you because of what you believe in as we fight for freedom of speech…
    We are attacking you because of what you did to our brothers and sisters at the Ferguson protest on the 12th of November.

    Notable Developments

    Soon after the video was released, Anonymous hackers doxxed members of the KKK near the St. Louis area, releasing details such as photos, personal information, and addresses.[5]

    On November 15th, 2014, the KKK-affiliated Twitter account @KuKluxKlanUSA retweeted a direct message from Anonymous Australia, in which Anonymous announced that it would take direct action against the KKK.[2] Over the course of the next ten hours, the Twitter account taunted Anonymous repeatedly, declaring it “a bunch of wannabees” and claiming that it “won’t take any action”.[3]

    At 9:11 p.m. (GMT) on the same day, approximately two hours after it made its final tweet taunting Anonymous, @KuKluxKlanUSA was hacked. The account’s profile avatar was immediately changed to the symbol of Anonymous and a post was made celebrating the success of #OpKKK.



    On November 17th, the Anonymous-affiliated Twitter account @YourAnonNews declared that the website traditionalistamericanknights.com, belonging to the group that had distributed the fliers, had been taken offline.

    The 1st Battleship of the Kongō-Class from Jamaica (Japanese: ジャマイカからやってきた金剛型1番艦, Jamaica Kara Yattekita Kongō-gata Ichibankan), also called as “Jamai-Kan” (ジャマイ艦) and “Jan-Gou” (ジャンゴウ or ジャン剛), refers to a fanmade fleet “guy” inspired by Kongou[1], a fleet girl from Japanese online card game Kantai Collection. This funky Jamaican has played a conspicuous part in the KanColle fandom since October, 2013.

    Origin

    This character was born from an illustration posted to pixiv by user Jugem-T[2] on October 5th, 2013.[3] According to the descriptions of the post, his illustration titled “The 1st Battleship of the Kongō-Class from Jamaica” was inspired by a description in a popular Kancolle doujin book “Haruna[4] has so white skin”. He construed that it means the rest of the Kongō-class sisters are not fair skin, but are dark skin. And he had a flash of inspiration of this dark-skinned Kongō-class fleet “guy”.



    Additionally, the creator also explained his characteristics in the descriptions:

    • Calls the admiral as “Brother” or “Bro”.
    • Sorties arming with a sound system instead of weapons and carrying a huge boombox on his shoulder
    • Plays Reggae music during battles.
    • Calls battles as “Sound Clash”
    • Smokes marijuana at the dock, but never allows it to other fleet girls.
    • Perhaps gets along well with Tenryuu.[5]

    Spread

    Inspired by that Jugem-T’s startling idea, a bot account of The 1st Battleship of the Kongō-Class from Jamaica was launched on Twitter on October 12th, 2013.[6] His funky Jamaican-English tweets based on the creator’s settings succeeded to earn over 12,000 followers in its first year, and led to substantial increase in illustrations in pixiv[7] and Nico Nico Seiga[8] and Miku Miku Dance[9] in Nico Nico Douga.[10]

    In addition, cosplay costumes for The 1st Battleship of the Kongō-Class from Jamaica has been already released for both males and females in the following month[11], and cosplayers wearing it are often found on Comiket and doujin conventions dedicated to Kantai Collection.

    Appeal from the Creator

    The 1st Battleship of the Kongō-Class from Jamaica is sometimes received nonsensical criticisms from people who misunderstand him as a parody of Kongou or the Jamaican version of her. The twitter account has constantly tweet an appeal from the creator not to mix him up with the fleet girl.[12]


    Translation:

    Yah-man. I’m not Kongou. I AM THE 1ST BATTLESHIP OF THE KONGŌ-ClASS FROMJAMAICA. OK? DO NOTMIX UP, BRO.

  • (This article is a W.I.P.)



    About

    Inanimate Insanity (also known as II) is an animated competition series on YouTube, created by Adam Katz. It premiered on April 1st, 2011, however, due to hacking situations, Episodes 1 to 5.5 appear with September 14th as their release date, though this is incorrect[1]. The show is about 16 anthropomorphic objects that compete for 1 Million Dollars. The show is a spinoff of YouTube show Battle For Dream Island, the 2007 Cartoon Network series, Total Drama and reality show Survivor.

    History

    After inspired by Battle For Dream Island, Adam Katz, a 14 year old New York resident, decided to create an animation using Anime Studio with characters similar to those from BFDI.



    The video for the show was labeled, “The Stupid Trailer”, where Adam Katz (known as DuncanEpic on YouTube), noted in the description that “This series does not have any storyline yet, so don’t ask me when it’s coming out, I have a lot of work to do. I’m thinking a gameshow like BFDI and TDI, or maybe just a stupid comedy skit show.”[2] Eventually, Katz used this animation to make the spinoff, and the first episode premiered on April 1st, 2011.

    The first episode of Inanimate Insanity was labeled, “The Crappy Cliff”, and had contestants following a similar task to Total Drama Island’s first episode, jumping off a cliff. The episode also featured Christian Potenza, the voice of Chris McClean, the host of Total Drama, as the voice of MePhone4, the host of Inanimate Insanity. Potenza, however, was replaced with Mark Katz, Adam Katz’s father, after he never sent in lines for the second episode. Katz proceeded to make several more episodes of Inanimate Insanity, each of them coming out usually on the first of each month. Adam Katz was progressively joined by his friends, Taylor Grodin, Brian Koch and Justin Chapman, who helped him create future episodes. The series continued on with 18 episodes, progressively becoming better in terms of animation and voice acting. The 18th and final episode released on December 7th, 2012.



    Reception

    The small fan-base that followed Battle For Dream Island had mixed reactions to Inanimate Insanity initially. While many praised Adam Katz in making his own object show, others scorned him for copying BFDI. Regardless of the negative reactions, Katz continued to make Inanimate Insanity, which gradually improved in each episode. The

    Characters

    The characters are all inanimate objects, though anthropomorphized (excluding one). The objects range from a baseball, a lightbulb, and a glass of orange juice, to a microphone, a suitcase and a toilet. Their names are simply what object they are, for instance, Paper is a piece of paper, and Knife is a knife. Each character has their own signature personality, most of the time that reflects what object they are. For example, Test Tube is a science fanatic, Soap is a neat freak and Tissues is always sick.

    In every episode, there is a competition in which the contestants will have to compete in with their teams. The losing team will face the consequences and have to eliminate a teammate. After some time, the teams will be broken up and every contestant fights for themselves.

    Inanimate Insanity II



    The show’s second season, Inanimate Insanity II, was released on April 2, 2013, which was the same month Inanimate Insanity, the predecessor, began. Just like last season, the show is an animated competition series on YouTube. The season began with 19 anthropomorphic objects, and later 20 competing for yet another 1 million dollars.

  • About

    “Too Much Water” is a quote from the IGN review of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Sapphire cited as one of the drawbacks of the gameplay experience.

    Origin

    On November 18th, 2014, IGN published its review of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Sapphire for Nintendo 3DS by IGN, which praised the title’s gorgeous CG details and post-game easter eggs, while listing the overabundance of HMs (hidden machines) and water as its cons. The game received a rating of 7.8 out of 10. Given the geographical setting of Omega Ruby and Sapphire in Hoenn, a fictional region consisting of many islands and waterways, the review’s commentary on there being “too much water” instantly became a point of contention among the IGN members and fans of the game at large.



    Spread

    Within 24 hours of the publication, the article was met with more than 5,800 comments, the majority of which raised issues with the “too much water” remark. The article was subsequently linked to a variety of Pokemon gaming communities and video game forums, including three separate posts on Reddit’s /r/3DS and /r/Pokemon, as well as GameFAQs, Bungie and 4chan’s /vp/ (Pokemon) forums. The IGN review also prompted dozens of satirical posts on YouTube and Tumblr.

  • 11/19/14--02:16: Plasma-chan
  • About

    Plasma-chan (Japanese: プラズマちゃん or ぷらずまちゃん, Purazuma-chan), also called as “Plasma” (ぷらずま) simply, is a fanmade chibi character inspired by Inazuma[1], a fleet girl from Japanese online card game Kantai Collection (KanColle). Since late 2013, she has established her own “violent and black-hearted” personality opposite to the original fleet girl by the playful mind of KanColle fans in the Japanese textboard community 2channel.

    Origin

    A fleet girl in the sixth destroyer corps, Inazuma, is one of the most popular characters among KanColle players because she is one of the 5 selectable fleet girls at start-up and most of the players choose her for the missions which require her. So, her pure-hearted but very timid personality and her characteristic suffix “Nanodesu” (なのです) are familiar to all of the players.

    Meanwhile, the concept of this character was ignited by an illustration in which a chibi Inazuma with black circle eyes is slamming both hands against the table powerfully along with the remark that can be read “I Hate Eggplants” (ナスは嫌゛い゛な゛の゛で゛す!!, Nasu wa KIRAINANODESU!!). This illustration was posted to Twitter by user ‏@suki_suke (すき)[2] on August 21st, 2013[3], and it was drawn simply for a joke reply to his friend @Nasu_e (ナス).[4]



    Spread

    This illustration was soon imported to the main thread series for KanColle in /gameswf/ (browser/smartphone games) board in the Japanese anonymous textboard community 2channel and got free from the original context. This chibi Inazuma shouting a name of her least favorite vegetable powerfully was loved by 2channel users because it is unexpected from her warm personality. Inspired by this, they made a Shift-JIS art version of her and began making her utter many hurtful and violent remarks. And in the following month, this black-hearted Shift-JIS art character became to be distinguished from Inazuma and recognized as another character called “Plasma-chan” which comes from a pun for Inazuma and the name meaning of “Lightning Bolt”.

    In the Kancolle thread, the Shift-JIS art was quickly created when the illustration was introduced to the thread on August 25th[5], and the first post calling her as Plasma-chan was on September 7th, 2013 (shown, below).[6]


    Translation:

    241 :Anonymous:2013/09/07(Sat) 21:21:29.38 ID:5AHg0Uyr

    >>256
    Plasma-chan.
    It’s something in Inazuma’s skin.


    By getting her own name and personality, the popularity of Plasma-chan spread furthermore on the web. The amount of fan illustration Plasma-chan had earned on pixiv[7] and Nico Nico Seiga.[8] in its first year is near 1000. Plasma-chan also got her own article on Nico Nico Pedia[9] and pixiv Encyclopedia[10] in the beginning of October, and started threads dedicated to her Shift-JIS arts on 2channel in January 2014.[11]

    In addition, Suki_suke gave his approval to the Shift-JIS art version for his illustration in a blog post on September 16th, 2013[12], even yadkari, the sixth destroyer corps’s official illustrator, noticed his character’s online fame and mentioned to the pixiv Encyclopedia article on his Twitter in October, 2013[13], and Plasma-chan made a cameo appearance in a manga published on an official KanColle anthology comic released on October 25th, 2013.[14]



    Various Examples

    On the illustrators communities, “Plasma-chan” is used for the tag for both illustrations inspired by the Shift-JIS art and dark-side parodies for the original Inazuma. Hence, the search results include a few amount of old posts uploaded before August 2013.

In November 2014, Uber executive Emil Michael was criticized for statements made at a dinner, where he suggested the company should hire a team of investigators to target journalist Sarah Lacy.

    History

    In 2009, entrepreneurs Garrett Camp and Travis Kalanick founded the “UberCab” car service in San Francisco, California. In 2010, the company launched a mobile application for iOS and Android devices, which initially only allowed users to hail car drivers in the San Francisco area. In 2011, the venture capital firm Benchmark led a Series A funding round for Uber, which raised $11.5 million. That year, Goldman Sachs, Menlo Ventures and Bezos Expeditions invested $32 million in Uber.

  • 11/19/14--21:01: Chardogon
  • About

    Chardogon is a copypasta-like text that describes what is apparently a Pokemon based original character derived from Charizard. The text is notable for its bombastic, overwrought (and quite possibly an application of Poe’s Law) description, background and list of “powers” and “defeated characters” that spans several hundred lines, similar to that of a Mary Sue. Originating from Pastebin, the text has spawned several derivatives with a certain pattern.


    An artist’s impression of Chardogon.

    Origin

    Whilst the general format of the text can be attributed to the Ultimate Kyurem Black text that is first seen on May 2, 2014, the first text that mentions Charizard as the base character was the charizard xy paste. Then around July, the character’s name progressively changed to Chardogon.

    Typical example

    Spread

    A few months after the first text appeared, several derivatives of the original paste such as chardogon ultimate god, chardogon god and dark mecha chardogon started appearing all over Pastebin, particularly in the months of July and August. Whilst most of the derivatives are essentially the same text with a slightly different (but not less Mary Sue-ish) name attributed to the original character, some derivatives, such as the chardogon guardian of all universes and rainbows or Guardian Hydrocorodeurzard added more characters, attack powers, backstory which all adds to a laughable level of bombast. Another particular feature that is constantly edited is the “trained for x years gained powers” line in the end of the text.

    Aside of common text derivatives, some RP text also ridicules the Mary Sue attributes of Chardogon, such as omega chardogon or Fluffy Being His Wonderful Intelligent Self.

    Tumblr might also play some part in the proliferation of the text, as some of the most over-the-top examples of the text were posted in some blogs. Example (Requires more research)

  • 11/19/14--21:29: Starter Packs
  • About

    Starter packs, sometimes known as starter kits, are a series of multi-panel photo sets meant to illustrate the archetype of a celebrity, company or subculture through a recommended selection of fashion articles, multimedia and other consumer products, much similar to steal her look fashion guides.

    Origin

    The multi-panel image series on Twitter began to take off in late September 2014, when @ItsLadinaPlis tweeted a photoset consisting of three images showing a top knot bun hairstyle, oversized golden hoop rings and a madonna-style piercing.



    Precursors

    “Starter kits,” defined as a set of articles or equipment providing the essential items and instructions for taking up a particular activity or process for the first time, have long been used in various contexts, especially in manuals or instructional literature; for instance, Twitter has introduced a “starter kit” service as a beginner’s guide to the participating teams during the 2014 Brazil World Cup. The earliest known use of the term “starter kit” in internet humor can be traced back to a LOLcat image macro featuring a box full of kittens and the caption reading “THANKYOUFORORDERINGTHECRAZYCATLADYSTARTERKIT” (shown below), which began circulating cute animal blogs and humor sites since as early as December 2011.



    Spread

    Beginning on November 12th, Twitter[16] ran wild with hundreds of photoset posts under the names “starter pack” and “starter kit,” with each receiving more than 5.4 million and 640,000 mentions over the course of a week, according to Topsy.[24] On November 15th, the first Twitter account dedicated to curating starter kit memes was launched at @starterkits_[4], followed by @itsStarterKits[5] and @itsStarterPacks[15] on the next day. On November 17th, the meme was picked up by several viral media and entertainment news sites, including BuzzFeed[3], MTV[7], Hip Hop Wired[9] and The Atlantic[6], among others. On the following day, the single topic blog Starter-Packs was created on Tumblr.[22]

  • 11/20/14--06:04: Moderately-Damaged Myoukou
  • About

    Moderately-Damaged Myoukou, also known as “Myoukou Pose”, refers to a series of parody photoshopped images utilizing an illustration of Myoukou[1], a fleet girl from Japanese online card game Kantai Collection (KanColle). A vast amount of parody images had been created on Twitter with its own hashtag between October 2013 and early 2014.

    Origin

    In KanColle gameplay, dedicated illustrations of injured fleet girls are inserted when they suffer small/moderate/massive damages during the battles, and most of them are sexually suggestive illustrations depicting their condition after being caught the blast. However, those of several fleet girls drawn by a Japanese illustrator bob[2] are known for its non-standard rendition which depicts the moment of explosions dynamically. Among them, the moderately-damaged Myoukou getting blown from the behind is known as the the most epic one.



    Left: Typical Damaged Fleet Girl (eg. Kongou[3]) | Right: Moderately-Damaged Myoukou

    Spread

    In the Japanese anonymous textboard community 2channel, many photoshopped images parodying fleet girls have been continually posted to the main thread series for KanColle in /gameswf/ (browser/smartphone games) board since the summer of 2013. Moderately-damaged Myoukou acrobatic pose and tortured expression which can be construed as sexual ecstasy was sometimes used as a resource in 2channel as well as many other fleet girls illustrations, but it wasn’t particularly notable one.



    Early Photoshopped Myoukou Images in 2channel

    What made moderately-damaged Myoukou parody increase explosively was a hashtag “#Myoko-ClassCrappyCollageGrand-Prix” (#妙高型クソコラグランプリ)[4] which came to circulate on Twitter around the middle of October 2013. Many ordinary internet users came to notice the epicness of her by the hashtag and joined onto it by their own “crappy” photoshopped images. This Twitter trend was soon covered by affi-blogs dedicated to the online game[5][6] and naver matome pages.[7] Additionally, dozens of parody illustrations inspired by moderately-damaged Myoukou were created on pixiv and Nico Nico Seiga tagged under the hashtag[8] and other names such as “Myoukou Mode” (妙高状態)[9] or “Myoukou Jump” (妙高飛び).[10]

    However, this fad of Moderately-Damaged Myoukou on Twitter didn’t last so long because people soon got tired of the fleet girl who was overused in so many boring photoshopped images in a quite short period. It began losing its momentum gradually around the spring of the following year, and ended when people’s concern moved to her “Kai 2” version in July, 2014.

    About

    Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer Parodies are mock versions of the children’s book Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer by Susan Marenco, which was accused of perpetuating sexist stereotypes in November 2014.

    Origin

    On November 17th, 2014, blogger Pamie Ribon published a post titled “Barbie Fucks It Up Again,” which argued that the children’s book Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer promoted sexual stereotypes in the story. In the story, Barbie sets out to create a game for her computer class and ends up enlisting the assistance of two boys to fix her computer and create the video game she designed.



    Spread

    On November 19th, programmer Kathleen Tuite[2] launched the “Feminist Hacker Barbie” web application, which allows users to make their own parody versions of the Barbie book (shown below). That day, several news sites published articles about remixes that were created using the app, including The Daily What[4]

    Mattel’s Apology

    On November 19th, 2014, the official Barbie Facebook page posted an apology for the children’s book.

    “The Barbie I Can Be A Computer Engineer book was published in 2010. Since that time we have reworked our Barbie books. The portrayal of Barbie in this specific story doesn’t reflect the Brand’s vision for what Barbie stands for. We believe girls should be empowered to understand that anything is possible and believe they live in a world without limits. We apologize that this book didn’t reflect that belief. All Barbie titles moving forward will be written to inspire girl’s imaginations and portray an empowered Barbie character.”

  • 11/20/14--13:05: Bill Cosby Rape Allegations
  • Overview

    Bill Cosby Rape Allegations refer to a series of sexual assault claims made against comedian Bill Cosby from 16 different women. Following the circulation of a viral stand-up clip in which comedian Hannibal Buress called Cosby a “rapist” in October 2014, several women came forward to provide their account of their alleged assaults.

    Background

    In January 2000, a police report was filed by actress Lachele Convington, who claimed she was inappropriately groped by Cosby at his home in New York City. The Manhattan district attorney’s office dropped the case after determining no crime had been committed.[2] In November 2006, Cosby settled a civil lawsuit with former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, who claimed he had drugged and sexually assaulted her in 2004. By the end of the settlement, 13 other women had come forward claiming he had sexually assaulted them.

    Notable Developments

    Hannibal Buress Stand-Up

    In October 2014, comedian Hannibal Buress called Cosby a rapist during a stand-up performance in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in reference to the 2006 lawsuit.



    “He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s. I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom.’ Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches.”

    Barbara Bowman’s Allegations

    On October 27th, The Daily Mail[5] published artist Barbara Bowman’s account her experience with Cosby, claiming he drugged and raped her over a two-year period starting when she was 17-years-old in 1985.

    “He is a monster. He came at me like a monster. My hope is that others who have experienced sexual abuse will not be intimidated into silence by the famous, rich and powerful. If I can help one victim, then I’ve done my job.”

    #CosbyMeme

    On November 10th, 2014, Cosby tweeted featuring a photograph of himself with the caption “Happy Monday!” along with a link to a meme generator website inviting Twitter users to make their own Cosby image macros with the hashtag “#CosbyMeme”[1] (shown below).



    Twitter users subsequently began tweeting photos of Cosby with captions referencing assault allegations against the comedian along with the “#CosbyMeme” hashtag (shown below). That day, the original Cosby tweet was deleted.



    Additional Allegations

    On November 16th, 2014, the entertainment news blog Hollywood Elsewhere[3] published an account written by journalist Joan Tarshis, who claimed Cosby raped her when she was 19-years-old in 1969. On November 13th, Bowman appeared on CNN, where she discussed her past experiences with Cosby with anchor Don Lemon (shown below, left). On November 18th, Tarshis was interviewed by on CNN by Lemon, who was criticized for asking her if she had considered biting Cosby’s penis (shown below, right).



    That day, model Janice Dickinson was interviewed on the entertainment news program Entertainment Today,[4] where she claimed Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982 (shown below).
