  • 04/18/14--22:30: White With Red
  • About

    White with red (also known as the keyhole creepypasta) is a fictional horror story that takes a place on an old and mysterious hotel, which the pragtagonist noticed a weird room that has an interesting story.

    A man went to a hotel and walked up to the front desk to check in. The woman at the desk gave him his key and told him that on the way to his room, there was a door with no number that was locked and no one was allowed in there. Especially no one should look inside the room, under any circumstances. So he followed the instructions of the woman at the front desk, going straight to his room, and going to bed.

    The next night his curiosity would not leave him alone about the room with no number on the door. He walked down the hall to the door and tried the handle. Sure enough it was locked. He bent down and looked through the wide keyhole. Cold air passed through it, chilling his eye. What he saw was a hotel bedroom, like his, and in the corner was a woman whose skin was completely white. She was leaning her head against the wall, facing away from the door. He stared in confusion for a while. He almost knocked on the door, out of curiosity, but decided not to.

    This disinclination saved his life. He crept away from the door and walked back to his room. The next day, he returned to the door and looked through the wide keyhole. This time, all he saw was redness. He couldn’t make anything out besides a distinct red color, unmoving. Perhaps the inhabitants of the room knew he was spying the night before, and had blocked the keyhole with something red.

    At this point he decided to consult the woman at the front desk for more information. She sighed and said, “Did you look through the keyhole?” The man told her that he had and she said, “Well, I might as well tell you the story. A long time ago, a man murdered his wife in that room, and her ghost haunts it. But these people were not ordinary. They were white all over, except for their eyes, which were red.”

  • 04/19/14--15:54: Renaissance Art
  • About

    The use of Renaissance Art as an Image Macro, Meme, or Parody.

    Origin

    The Renaissance marks the period of European history at the close of the Middle Ages and the rise of the Modern world. Early Renaissance, mostly in Italy, bridges the art period[1] during the fifteenth century, between the Middle Ages and the High Renaissance in Italy. It is generally known that Renaissance matured in Northern Europe later, in 16th century.

    Spread

    Renaissance Art memes have been showing up on the internet since around 2009 with memes like The Last Supper Parodies,Joseph Ducreux, and Give Her The Dick. Since then many other image macros and parodies of Renaissance Art have surfaced. Even though Renaissance Art didn’t become popular on the internet until much later, Terry Gilliam of Monty Python’s Flying Circus[2] was using Renaissance Art in his cartoon sketches in the late 60’s. The famous foot in the opening credits is taken from Agnolo Bronzino’s “Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time”.[3]


    Notable Examples



    Renaissance Celebrities

    The site Worth1000 has had contests[4] for modern celebrities in old art and has produced many of the Renaissance Celebrity images.


    Chinese State TV Censorship

    In 2012 CCTV censored the private parts of Michelangelo’s David during a newscast about an exhibit at the National Museum of China.[5] Because of the government’s anti-vulgarity Internet censorship campaign and their decision to censor the content of TV and online photo albums. Images of Renaissance paintings where censored on the grounds of indecent display of nudity. The Chinese internet reacted by photoshopping garments over nudity in classical artwork.[6]

  • 04/20/14--04:50: Thomas the Tank Engine
  • This Entry is still Working in Process

    About

    Thomas the Tank Engine is a British children’s television series, which had its first broadcast on the ITV network on 4 September 1984. It is based on The Railway Series of books by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry and his son, Christopher Awdry. These books deal with the adventures of a group of anthropomorphised locomotives and road vehicles who live on the fictional Island of Sodor.

    History

    Before the airing of the first episode of Thomas & Friends on 4 September 1984, previous attempts had been made to adapt Awdry’s stories for television. The first occurred in 1953, when the editor of the Railway Series books Eric Marriott was approached by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), who wished to use live-action model trains to re-create two stories from Awdry’s first book, The Three Railway Engines. The engines were portrayed by 00 gauge Hornby Dublo models, and authentic sets produced in the styles of the original illustrations were produced; the first episode, based on ‘The Sad Story of Henry’, was broadcast live on the evening of Sunday 14 June 1953 from Lime Grove Studios.

  • 04/22/14--11:11: Scooby-Doo
  • About

    Scooby-Doo is an American cartoon franchise created by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears for Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1969. It centers on the adventures of four teenagers and the eponymous dog as they solve mysteries involving supposedly supernatural events. The franchise includes 12 different television series, 22 direct-to-video films, 10 made-for-television films, and 2 theatrically-released films.

    History

    In 1968, Fred Silverman, executive of CBS daytime programming, was looking for a show that would revitalize the channel’s Saturday morning cartoon line and please parent groups who were upset by more violent cartoons like Johnny Quest. Working with producers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, along with writers Ruby and Spears and character designer Iwao Takomoto, they came up with the idea for House Of Mystery. The show about five teenagers: Geoff, Mike, Kelly, Linda, Linda’s brother “W.W.” and their dog, Too Much, who were all members of the band “Mysteries Five”. The band would solve mysteries in between gigs.

    As the ideas progressed, the rock band element was dropped, the number of teenagers dropped from five to four, being named Fred, Velma, Daphne, and Shaggy, and the dog was named Scooby-Doo, with the new name inspired by Frank Sinatra’s scat singing.

    The original show, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?, premiered on CBS on September 13th, 1969. It ran until 1976. In 1977, Silverman became President of ABC, and wanted to bring Scooby-Doo to his new channel. Scooby-Doo series ran on ABC until 1987. In the early 1990s, Turner broadcasting acquired Hanna-Barbera studios, and the franchise was revived on their Cartoon Network cable channel.

    #MYNYPD is a hashtag campaign launched by the New York Police Department as a community outreach program on Twitter. While intended as a feel-good social media event to boost the image of the NYPD, the hashtag stream quickly became flooed with photographs of its uniformed officers resorting to violence.

    Background

    At 1:55 p.m. (ET) on April 22nd, 2014, @NYPDNews[1] tweeted a message calling on its followers to share their photographs with NYPD police officers using the hashtag #MyNYPD.



    Notable Developments

    The NYPD’s community outreach hashtag was initially met with genuine responses from its followers on Twitter, but it soon turned into an all-day exhibition of images depicting police brutality and racial profiling, including many photographs that went viral during the height of Occupy Wall Street protests. According to Topsy[2], the hashtag #MyNYPD was mentioned more than 180,000 times on April 22nd.




    News Media Coverage

    That afternoon, the hijacking of #MyNYPD on Twitter was reported on by The Daily Dot[3], Gawker[4], VICE[5], The Verge[6], Mediate[7], Mashable[8] and The Huffington Post[10], as well as a number of local and national news outlets.[9][12][13]

  • This Entry is Work in Process and feel free for Request Editorships

    About

    The Disney Adult Jokes is when the Animators and writers at Walt Disney Company have often cited that the movies they make are for adults, just as much as they are for kids. As such, a certain amount of adult humor slips into their projects that kids won’t get.

    History

    In the Don Bluth Film called The Rescuers. The image in question is a blurry image of a topless woman that appears in two out of the film’s more than 110,000 frames. The image appears twice in non-consecutive frames during the scene in which Miss Bianca and Bernard are flying on Orville’s back through New York City. The two images could not be seen in ordinary viewing because the film runs too fast -- at 30 frames per second on video.

    In 1999, two days after the recall was announced, the London press site The Independent reported:

    A Disney spokeswoman said that the images in The Rescuers were placed in the film during production, but she declined to say what they were or who placed them… The company said the aim of the recall was to keep its promise to families that they can trust and rely on the Disney brand to provide the best in family entertainment.


    The Rescuers video was reissued March 23, 1999 with the offending image edited out.

    About

    JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Shift-JIS arts, known as “JoJo Ascii Arts” (Japanese: ジョジョAA) on the Japanese web, is a series of Shift-JIS arts inspired by the Japanese manga Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (JJBA). Those Shif-JIS arts have been well-used fixed phrases or reaction faces in the Japanese text board community 2channel since around 2005.

    Origin

    Threads for talking about topics by JJBA’s unique wording style had been occasionally posted to 2channel’s each boards since early 2000s. And Shift-JIS arts of characters or panels became to be put together with users’ posts in late 2004 or early 2005 by the technical progress of 2channel Shift-JIS arts. In this background, there is the huge demand for Shift-JIS arts which have been playing the role of exploitables or reaction faces in that pure text board community which isn’t able to upload images.

    Many famous scenes/characters in the manga were given its Shift-JIS art version in those days. Among them, what has been leading the popularity of the JJBA Shift-JIS arts since quite early days is the Shift-JIS art for Jean Pierre Polnareff[1], one of the main characters in the 3rd & 5th arc of JJBA. It’s also known as “Polnareff Shift-JIS Art” (ポルナレフAA) or called by its most famous line “Let me tell you what happened!” (ありのまま起こった事を話すぜ!, Arinomama Okottakoto wo Hanasuze!). This Shift-JIS art is consisting of citing 2 panels in the 249th chapter titled “Dio’s World Pt. 3” where Polnareff is trying to explain Dio’s stand power that he experienced. This episode is included in the 27th volume of JJBA comic book series released in 1992.



    This is the most well-used Shift-JIS art among those JJBA Shift-JIS arts because his wording in this scene is quite easy to fit to explain various situations, or to ridicule other silly users in the threads.



    Spread

    By getting characters’ iconic Shift-JIS arts, threads for talking by JJBA’s wording style became much popular amongst many boards in 2channel. As a reflection of its popularity, a series of threads specializing for collecting the derivatives of JJBA Shift-JIS arts, mainly Polnareff’s Shift-JIS art, started in 2channel’s /gline/ (guideline) board in September 2005.[2] As of April 2014, this series has still continued for more than 8 years while spending over 240 threads. Many user-made archive pages for those creations were launched in late 2005 or 2006.[3][4][5][6] These are hosting many hundreds of JJBA Shift-JIS arts in each.

    Notable Examples

    But I Refuse / Rohan Kishibe

    Rohan Kishibe[7], known as the character representing the creator’s philosophy, has one of the most famous catchphrases in the JJBA series: “But I Refuse” (だが断る, Daga Kotowaru). The spread of this phrase on the Japanese web was largely helped by the Shift-JIS art reproducing this scene in “Highway Star Pt.3”, the 386th chapter included in the 41st volume released in 1995.



    Instead, Think That… / George Joestar I

    A remark of George Joestar I[8] who appeared on a flashback of his son Jonathan Joestar, “Instead, Think That…” (逆に考えるんだ, Gyaku ni Kangaerunda) is often used for replying. The original scene appears in “The Hero of the 77 Rings”, the 28th chapter included in the 4th volume of the comic book released in 1988.



    I Dare Say That… ! / Noriaki Kakyoin

    A panel of Noriaki Kakyoin[9] which is taken from “Dio’s the World Pt.4”, the 250th chapter included in the 27th volume of the comic book is utilized simply to yell something. But its wording, “I dare say that…”, refers to his remark in other episode.



    Exactly / Telence T. D’Arby

    An icily-polite English utterance by Telence T. D’Arby[10], “Exactly”, is often used for responses for agreement. The original scene apears in “D’arby the Gamer Pt.3”, the 229th chapter included in the 25th volume of the comic book series released in 1992.



    The subtitle text in the parentheses (そのとおりでございます, Sonotoori de Gozaimasu) is also a subject for parody.
