  • 05/29/15--14:59: Rose / randytaylor69
  • About

    Rosemary Lisa Wolfe Gotto, better known as Rose or randytaylor69, is an British Internet personality known mainly through her channel on the video hosting platform YouTube. Despite a long period of absence from social media, she developed a cult following following the discovery of her videos on the imageboard 4chan.

    Internet Presence

    Rose was born on April 5, 1986.[1] Her earliest known Internet activity comes from 2003, which includes profiles created on sites such as LiveJournal and DeviantArt] In 2007, she began to upload videos to her YouTube channel, randytaylor69.[4] In 2011, she created a gaming channel under the name roseplaysgames.[5] Both accounts ceased activity in 2013.

    Fandom

    In the summer of 2011, Rose’s video “how to build a pc.” (see above) was posted to 4chan’s /g/ (Technology) board, where it also spread to /v/ due to the work of a certain follower described in some accounts as a “stalker”. Said stalker later doxxed both her and her family’s personal information, prompting her to remove much of her personal information from her social media sites. As a side effect of this doxing, threads about Rose were banned on both /g/ and /v/, prompting later threads to be made on boards such as /b/ and /r9k/, as well as on other websites.[6]

    A subreddit for Rose, /r/randytaylor69 was created in August of 2012 as a place for followers to congregate.[7] An archive of her videos made for the website Vyou was created in 2013.[10] A board for Rose was created on the imageboard 8chan in 2014.[8] A fansite for her was created at an unknown time, archiving some of her photos as well as fan art.[9]

    Sonic For Real Justice is a Tumblr Blog featuring Sonic characters and anti-SJW messages. The blog reached over 2,000 followers within the first day after one of the mods was banned, starting a campaign (both ironic and unironic) to bring him back.

    Origin

Mod Amy had pointed out that it was against the rules to close the box, so he was later banned. Many users from the Sonic fandom (original currently unknown) responded to this negatively and sarcastically. Most realized quick that the blog wasn’t parody and started making jokes based of the posts made by the blog. Tumblr user mi0da created a post combing Sonic For Real Justice and Down With Cis, “a bunch of people with “down with mod amy” shirts got out of a bus,.” The post received 2,000 notes within just a few hours.[3]

  • 05/31/15--02:13: Doujinshi

  • About

    Doujinshi ( also known as Dōjinshi, or simply Dōjin) is a self-published work that usually ranges from novels, to magazines, but the most common form of doujinshi is manga. [1]. However, some professionals do make doujinshi. The term is derived from two other terms: 同人 dōjin, “a group for the same interest” and 誌 shi, “a magazine or a pamphlet” [2].

    History

    The earliest display of doujinshi originated in the Meiji Era of Japan. “Meiroku Zasshi” was published since 1874, often being called the pioneer of doujinshi. The first magazine to publish doujinshi was Garakunta Bunko [3]. After the peak of popularity in the Shōwa period, doujinshi’ popularity dropped in postwar years due to literary journals being published [4]. In the 1970s, doujinshi’s popularity began to rise again. This is speculated to be because of a new technological method, photocopying. In the early 90s, doujinshi started being sold at comic book stores. In the 21st century, doujinshi is very prominent. Websites like DeviantArt are where most of them are published. A majority of doujinshi also tend to be hentai.

    Reception

    Doujinshi, for many years, has had a split reception with Western culture and Japan. As previously stated, doujinshi was very prominent in early Japan, and still is today. However, creating doujinshi is not as popular in America. Although, reading doujinshi is a hobby for many people around the world.

    Fandom

    [Currently Researching]

    One of the-- if not, the largest-- comic/doujinshi convention is called Comiket. It is hosted in Tokyo and last took place in late December [5]. There, the doujinshi fandom cosplays, sells and buys doujinshi, and other activities.


    On July 3, 2003, an official club called the Doujinshi Club was created on DeviantArt [6]. However it’s not very active.

    On February 4, 2006, a group was formed named doujinshi-artists. It has over 400 members as of May 2015 [7].

    Notable Memes

    [Currently Researching]

    Hentai Quotes

    Hentai Quotes are risqué quotes that tend to come from doujinshi, usually in the midst of sex.

    A Cat is Fine Too

    A Cat is Fine Too… is another phrase from a hentai doujinshi. After a pedophile chases a loli succubus, she turns into a cat. The pedophile proceeds to unzip his pants saying, “A cat is fine, too.” It is frequently used on imageboards and forums.


    Mega Milk/ Titty Monster

    Mega Milk/ Titty Monster is an iconic picture of a teenage holding her breasts in her arms in a mocking way. The phrase comes from a hentai/incest doujinshi where a teenager experiences a massive growth in her breasts.


    Multi Track Drifting

    Multi Track Drifting is a phrase that comes from a parody doujinshi that replaces cars with trains. As said in the title, the phrase comes from a scene where a train is “Multi Track Drifting”, similar to drift with cars.

He could bend spoons and lift objects with his mind from a young age, but he slowly began to withhold from using his abilities in public due to the negative attention he kept receiving. As he grows older, Mob realizes his psychic power is dangerous. To avoid the power getting out of control, he constantly lives a live under emotional shackle. Mob wants to live just like others, but a barrage of troubles come to him. With the suppressed emotions growing inside Mob little by little, his power threatens to overspill its bounds.
    He spends his days working with Reigen Arataka, his master and self-proclaimed psychic. He is good at all kinds of fraud and skills of speech, perceptive, clever and agile, claiming himself has a greenbelt of Shaolin boxing.

  • Nicholas Foxworth Fedorov



    About

    Nicholas Foxworth Fedorov, sometimes referred to as Lord Foxworth or WindowsMillenium2000, is an anime obsessed weeaboo, animator, musician, and collector of 1990’s PC hardware who has gained internet fame through his obsession with the female characters from the Nichijou anime. He originally started with Mio Naganohara, but moved on to both Yuuko Aioi and Nano Shinonome. Unlike other weeaboos, Nicholas expresses his anime-driven feelings by creating 90’s inspired media relating to his anime obsession. He is most well known for his photo edits where he crudely edits the characters in with himself. He likes 1990’s internet culture, worships Windows ME, and is obsessed with anime girls. He is now a mascot for “waifuism”, the term for a romantic interest in an anime character.


    DeviantArt

    His DeviantArt account is held under the name WindowsMillenium2000. This is where the crudely edited images of him and his waifus originate from. The images all look like they were made in 1995 and are often mistaken for actual pictures from the 1990s by people who aren’t familiar with his internet fame. On the account, there are numerous edits with him and his waifus as well as many other miscellaneous pieces of art. There are lots and lots of images that he has made. View the ent


    YouTube

    He has a YouTube channel filled with creepy animations and edited videos that he makes. These videos are usually CGI animated or filled with cheesy 1990’s video effects and transitions. It is believed that Nicholas works on ancient hardware to make these videos. His most notable work is titled “Franklin and Beyond”. This is a CGI show that he made which is about a depressed kid named Franklin and his anthropomorphic CRT monitor friend, Mr. Computer. The show seems to parody slice of life anime and the fact that it is made by a weeaboo is very obvious. Surprisingly, Nicholas is also an accomplished musician who writes the background music in all of his animations. Here is an example of his work:



    Discovery and Spread

    The discovery of Nicholas Foxworth Fedorov and his strange antics started in January 2015 when anons on 4chan found his images uploaded to DeviantArt, and later his YouTube and other resources. These images were posted in cringe threads and later all of 4chan, and caught on as a popular 4chan meme. The images and videos then spread to several cringe related subreddits, kiwifar.ms, Encyclopedia Dramatica, lolcow.wiki, tumblr, and other notable websites. It is now impossible to refer to the Nichijou anime on 4chan without getting Foxworth posts in response.


    Waifu Timeline

    Over his discovery on the internet, Nicholas has gone through three waifus from Nichijou. His first waifu was Mio Naganohara. He then left Mio for Yuuko Aioi. After declaring Yuuko as his official waifu, he also included Nano Shinonome along with Yuuko Aioi as his two official waifus. In the video below, he marries himself to his current waifu Yuuko through 3D animation software:


    Target by Trolls

    Soon after he started creating content about his waifus, trolls from Encyclopedia Dramatica and 4chan caught on. An article on ED was made about him as well as other articles and documentation on his life. In response to this, he attempted to deflect their interest in his antics by telling them that he just took his feelings and blew them out of proportion to get a laugh. After this somewhat worked, he went right back to what he had been doing before which proves this as false. Realizing they knew this, he then “built up the courage to overcome new trolls” and is continuing to create strange images and videos about his anime obsession to this day.

  • About

    Gamera is a fictional flying turtle kaiju, first appearing in his own movie of the same name. Created by Daiei to rival Toho’s own Godzilla in the kaiju boom of the 60’s, Gamera grown on to be an icon for the kaiju genre and Japan itself, like Godzilla, although he is not as acknowledged as the king of monsters by people around the world

    History

    In the 1965 film directed by Noriaka Yuasa, Gamera was gigantic beast with an appearance of a turtle awaken by a nuclear dogfight between the American and Russian forces. At first, he was thought to be a mindless monster who destroyed everything in his path, but was revealed to truly be a sympathetic sentient being who was just misunderstood when he saved a young boy from falling lighthouse. His love for children progressed film after film as he fought dangerous creatures who put the planet in peril. Showa Gamera’s life finally ended when he sacrificed himself to save the Earth by destroying the evil Zanon’s ship which killed him and the alien’s forces in the process.

    The Gamera films were rebooted with the release of the Heisei series. This incarnation of shelled hero potrays him as a bio-engineered Atlantean creature created for the purpose of protecting the planet from any imminent threats. In 2006 Gamera was rebooted once more, where another Gamera is shown to be fending off a random group of Gyaos, a bat-like predator. The Gyaos seem to have the upper hand until Gamera self-destructs, killing them all and saving the village who were under attack. This causes a Gamera egg to spawn, where in 30 years a child will find it and keep the Gamera pet until he grows up to fight.

    Presence on the Internet

    Gamera may not be as famous as Godzilla, but does have a large community. On July 9, 2009, a wiki dedicated to Gamera called the Gamera Wiki was opened.[1] ScrewAttack uploaded a new DeathBattle episode about Gamera vs Godzilla on August 16, 2014.[2] As of June 2nd 2015, the video has reached over 9 million views.

  • 06/01/15--19:54: Ahorita No Joven



  • About

    “Ahorita No, Joven” (translated as Not now, young man or Not now, boy) is an image macro series that features dogs in comical poses, including gestures, or making human activities, in similar vein to Lucho’s macros. It’s commonly used as response to publications, in order to express indifference, or to despise it, in a similar way to GTFO or Stop Posting.

    Origin

    Ahorita no, joven is a common expression in the Spanish language, therefore at the beginning it was not strictly linked to an image of a dog. It was until later when they merged and started spreading. The origin of the meme is considered to be a video posted on YouTube on April 24th, 2014 by the user yu k, in its original language Japanese. In the video a man goes to a cigar shop and is attended at first by a shiba inu dog, later know to be called Shiba-Chan, which opens the shop window as soon as the man arrives.On August 11th, 2014 YouTube user kanadajin3 posted a video about the same dog in English.




    After that video, some images of Shiba-Chan at the store window with the caption “Ahorita no joven” were posted on Spanish speaking sites and started spreading. It is still unknown the exact date of the first meme, but according to Google Trends, the first searches of the phrase started on October, 2014.

    Soon internet users started using other images of dogs accompanied with the phrase, among the examples Yes, This is Dog, Cool Dog, Lawyer Dog, Doge.

    However an older video posted on YouTube posted on March 16th, 2011, already used the expression “Ahorita no, joven” and showed a dog dancing, but up to 2015 it only received less than 700 views and only 2 positive votes. It never gained enough relevance.

    Spread

    The meme have been widely used on social networks, especially in Latin America. A big number of related pages were created on Facebook with the most famous having more than 11.000 likes, and a second one with more than 10.000 likes, both of them created around the beginning of 2015; as well as accounts on twitter. The hashtag #AhoritanoJoven reached a total of 315 tweets since May 24th, 2015. The image is often seen as comment responses and has had an increasing search frequency on Google, having so far it’s highest peak on May 24th, 2015. Forum pages as well includes several posts, and blog pages telling about the origin and meaning of the meme.




    A trend in reddit shows a dog standing on its back legs at the door of a small metallic hut, with a comment saying “No joven, ahorita no”. This is image is used as well for the meme.

    Among the oldest related posts that could be found, there is one on an ask.fm profile, posted on October 27th, 2014. A generator has an image about *Ahorita no, Joven" but with TV presenter Laura Bozzo, posted on October 16th, 2014. Another example comes from a pets blog shows an small article posted on October 9th, 2014 about the meme.

  • About

    Towergirls is an online forum game in which the player is given the choice to save a princess. The game has gained a following, due in part to the myriad of available princesses and the ease of creating an original princess type.

    Origin

    Towergirls was partially inspired by a comic exploitable featuring a knight bursting into a tower in the first panel followed by a blank panel allowing others to fill in what comes next. In a 2014 thread on 4chan’s /v/ (Video Games) board, which featured this exploitable in its opening post, an anonymous user asked other users which of four princesses they would save: a kobold princess, an insect princess, a human princess, or a skeleton princess. This question was later illustrated. Later versions of the image would expand on the number of princesses available.[1]



    Gameplay

    In Towergirls, the player takes on the role of a knight, who much save a princess of his choice. Each princess comes with a number of advantages and disadvantages, as well as rankings for Love, Lust, Wealth, and Power. Princesses typically come with some other form of benefit in the form of dowries, which give miscellaneous boosts, or Idols and Companions. “Lewd” versions of the game also exist, which feature the princesses’ different fetishes and items which give sexual advantages. The player is allowed to take as many princesses as he wants, but choosing more princesses dilutes their advantages. The game has progressed through several generations, which differ in story, choices, and mechanics.[2]

    Spread

    Towergirls is very popular for its large number of available princesses, which are also easily able to be expanded on. /tg/’s wiki 1d4chan holds a large number of information on the game, though as of June 2, 2015 most of the information has been deleted. A booru for fan art was created in February of 2015.[3] An imageboard for the game was created on 8chan in March of the same year.[4] The game also has a notable following on Tumblr.
