  • 02/28/15--11:24: Snail Mutsu
  • About

    Snail Mutsu (Japanese: り陸奥たか, Rimutsutaka) is a fan-made creature inspired by Mutsu[1], a fleet girl from Japanese online trading card game Kantai Collection (KanColle). As well as Plasma-chan and The 1st battleship of the Kongou-class from Jamaica, this funny-looking creature has been one of the famous fan-made characters in the KanColle fandom since the end of 2013.

    Origin

    In the KanColle players community, Mutsu’s horn-like headgear, which represents the original Nagato-class battleships’ booms for maritime signal flags, is sometimes compared to a snail or slug due to the resemblance. Even on the English-speaking web, she’s sometimes called as “Mutslug” among fans. Inspired by this iconic item of her, an amateur illustrator blew[2] posted an illustration of a snail version of Mutsu to both Nico Nico Seiga[3] and pixiv[4] on November 17th, 2013 (shown below, left). Then, this creature was named “Rimutsutaka” on his next post (shown below, right) in the following month[5], which name comes from a pun for a backward reading of “かたつむり” (Ka-ta-tsu-mu-ri), a Japanese word meaning of snail, and the name of the battleship girl “陸奥” (Mu-tsu).



    Spread

    This funny-looking creature soon became to a popular character in the KanColle fandom, and many fan illustrations and Miku Miku Dance videos for it has been posted to pixiv[6], Nico Nico Seiga[7] and niconico Douga[8] since early 2014. Meanwhile, explanations in Rimutsutaka fandom sometimes takes the appearance of documentary like SCP Foundation because those following works depict it like a giant monster or UMB (Unidentified Mysterious Battleship) living in Rabaul waters in Papua New Guinea.

    The ironic use of the phrasal template [X] Needs More Y stems from the well-known catchphrase “Needs More Cowbell”, a memorable quote said by Christopher Walken in a 2000 Saturday Night Live sketch parody of VH1’s “Behind the Music” documentary on the studio recording of the 1976 song “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” by Blue Öyster Cult. Some of other notable variants include “Needs Moar Sauce” and “Needs More Lense Flare”.

During the campaign, in which the player takes control of the cyborg Raiden, the player eventually has to fight Monsoon.[1] Prior to this battle, during a conversation between Monsoon and Raiden, Monsoon shares his view on memes, explaining to him that he finds them the only thing that mattered besides war and even going as far as calling them “the DNA of the soul.” Although Monsoon talks about memes as the essence of a culture or a person,[2][5] fans quickly associated the speech with internet memes.

    WeaselPecker, a portmanteau of “weasel” and “woodpecker,” is a photoshop meme based on a well-timed photograph of a weasel riding on the back of a flying woodpecker bird. Since entering online circulation through Twitter in early March 2015, the photograph has given way to a series of photoshopped parodies in which other subjects and fictional characters are shown riding alongside or in lieu of the weasel.

    Origin

    On March 2nd, 2015, East London photographer Martin Le-May took a photo of a juvenile weasel riding on the back of a woodpecker in Essex, England (shown below). On the same day, wildlife photographer Jason Ward posted the photograph on Twitter,[1] where it gained over 9,900 reweets and 7,400 favorites in the first 24 hours.



    Spread

    Later that evening, BuzzFeed[2] published an interview with Le-May, in which he described the events surrounding the photograph. Also on March 2nd, Twitter user @darth[3] tweeted a photoshopped version of the image with a red panda dressed as the antagonist Darth Vader from the Star Wars franchise riding the weasel and bird (shown below).


    >

    On March 3rd, Twitter user Rebecca Lewis[4] tweeted a photoshopped image of Vladimir Putin riding on the back of the weasel, gathering more than 140 retweets and 90 favorites that day (shown below). Meanwhile, many other photoshopped versions of the image were posted on Twitter under the hashtag “#WeaselPecker”[5] (shown below, right).



    In the coming days, several news sites published articles about the online reaction to the photograph, including The Daily What,[6] Mashable,[7] The Huffington Post[8] and The Telegraph.[9]

  • 03/04/15--08:49: Semen Demon


  • About

    Semen Demon is a term used to refer to attractive anime characters. The term is also related to the catchphrases “Who is that semen demon” and “What anime is this semen demon from?”, often used as a shitposting practise on anime discussions, and normally being associated with Sherlock “Sharo” Shellinford,[3] a character from the manga and anime series Tantei Opera Milky Holmes

    Origin

    The term comes from the medieval legend of the sucubbus (plural sucubbi), demons who take the form of attractive woman to seduce men and draw energy from them, often until the point of exhaustion or death of the victim.[4] According to the Malleus Maleficarum, a book about witchcraft which was banned on 1490 by the Catholic Church, succubi would collect semen from the men they slept with, which incubi (demons who take the form of attractive man) would then use to impregnate women.[6]



    On June 17, 2013 a 4chan user made a thread on /a/, the anime and manga board, asking “what anime is that semen demon from?”, featuring an image of Sherlock Shellinford from the manga and anime series Tantei Opera Milky Holmes.[1]



    Spread

    On July 11, 2013, another thread on the same board was created, featuring the same question and another image of the same character.[2] On July 17, 2013, another thread asking for Sherock featured the first change of the words, saying “lactic harlot” instead of semen demon.[9] This was later used as spamming practice.



    On December 24, 2013, a thread on /s4s/, the shtiposting and spamming board, featured a poorly vectorized version of Sherlock Shellinford with the caption “Le Semen Demon”.[7] This image, also know as “semon demon”, is often used as a spamming and shitposting practice on the same board.[8]

    Origin

    This copypasta was originally written by TF2 user Guuse[1] in 2014 on March 17th, which was added to his pastebin[2]

    I sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of soaring over the oilfields dropping hot sticky loads on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I’m fucking retarded but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.

    Guuse originally wrote it to spam it using binds in chats whilst playing after an argument about gender identity politics.

    Note the video comment “props to Guuse for his amazing writing skills”. Dated March 21st as the earliest time on the internet. Uploader is a friend of the original writer.
