  • 08/21/15--09:20: Netflix and Chill
  • About

    Netflix and Chill, often seen written as “I thought you said Netflix and Chill!” or “20 Minutes into Netflix and Chill”, is Internet slang for inviting someone over to one’s home for sexual purposes. The phrase is often used in image macros and as a hashtag on social media.

    Origin

    The phrase first started appearing online in late 2014, mostly through Black Twitter. An early example was tweeted by the themed Twitter Start3rPack on November 14th, 2014; it was labeled “the Netflix and Chill Starter Pack,” with four photographs indicating the pack would contain comfortable socks, pajamas, and a Trojan magnum condom. The tweet received 44 retweets and 56 favorites.[1]



    Spread

    The phrase was first defined on Urban Dictionary in April of 2015, and was defined twice more in August of that year; the top-rated definition has 6575 upvotes and 3148 downvotes as of August 21st, 2015.[2] Netflix and Chill has been used more than 430,000 times on Twitter during the span of July 22nd – August 21st, 2015, indicating a widespread colloquial acceptance of the meaning.[3]

    A Facebook community called Netflix and Chill was created on June 9th, 2015, and is primarily used to repost image macros and Twitter memes using the phrase; it has more than 4,000 members as of August 2015.[4] There are 10 posts on the subreddit /r/blackpeopletwitter using the phrase which have more than 1,000 upvotes; the top ranking post was submitted June 1st, 2015 and has 4,489 points (93% upvoted).[5][6] There are about 1,500 posts on Vine either using the phrase or its hashtag, and more than 21,000 posts on Instagram using the hashtag.[7][8]

    In August, the mass media began reporting on the trend, with pieces in Yahoo News UK and News.Com.Au.[11][12] In addition, on August 10th, 2015, the web site Huzlers posted a false article claiming that a woman had sued Netflix after her child had become pregnant during a Netflix and Chill date.[9] The story was reposted widely as truth and was debunked by Snopes on the same day it was created.[10]

    About

    Lake of the Ozarks Boat Crash refers to a viral video in which seven speedboat passengers are violently thrown about the deck after hitting a large wave at high speed. On YouTube, many remixed variations of the video have been created featuring electronic dance music tracks dubbed over the background audio.

    Origin

    On August 31st, 2012, the Lake TV YouTube channel uploaded a news segment containing footage of a boat crash at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, where seven people were thrown back-and-forth across a boat’s deck after plowing into a wake at dangerously high speed (shown below). While all seven boaters were injured, five were taken to a hospital to be treated for “minor to moderate injuries.” In three years, the video gathered upwards of 4.5 million views and 1,100 comments. An extended video was later released, which features the boat crash at 2:17 (shown below, right).



    Spread

    On September 1st, 2012, The Daily Mail[1] published an article about the incident. The same day, YouTuber ohhellmaybe reuploaded a slowed clip of the crash (shown below, left). Also on September 1st, YouTuber Tom Robinson uploaded the crash clip dubbed with the 2010 dubstep song “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites” by Skrillex (shown below, right). Within three years, the videos gained over 3.5 million and 1.4 million views respectively.



    On September 2nd, Off Shore Only Forums[4] member DrReedJ replied to a thread about the video, where he claimed to have been one of the passengers on the boat and described various injuries the passengers received.

    “Hey guys, I was a passenger in this boat during the accident. Yes, there are many cardinal rules broken. The most important one I feel is no life jackets worn. As crazy as it seems, we had jackets for each person but as the poker run began we realized no one else was wearing them….. How foolish we were. I have read so many nasty comments on YouTube and other sites I am in shock. My wife suffered 4 broken ribs, punctured lung and a broken foot. She has not left the house since getting home. She is in severe pain. The driver crushed his eye orbital and broke hus back at T8 ( he is a former F-2 racer with APBA). Another passenger who raced professionally for many years broke his pelvis in several places and is in a wheelchair. One of the other girls crushed her eye orbital also. The guy from lake tv fractured his hip and broke his wrist. My injuries were minor compared, busted my head open and damaged a rib or two. Everyone is black and blue. This was a very upsetting event for everyone involved. I have been around powerboats for many years and it only takes on unguarded minute to loose a life or permanently hurt people you love.”

    On September 7th, the JukinVideo YouTube[2] channel reposted footage of the crash. On the following day, YouTuber Rayzed Entertainment posted an edited version of the video mixed with the 1993 dance song “What is Love” by Haddaway (shown below, left). Also on September 8th, YouTuber Julian Zamora uploaded another Skrillex dubstep remix (shown below, right).



    On February 28th, 2013, the Leisure Boating YouTube channel uploaded a clip dubbed with the 2012 trap song “Harlem Shake” (shown below, left). On April 23rd, 2014, YouTuber TDFWFail posted a version of the video edited with the 2013 trap song “Turn Down for What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon (shown below right). The following day, Redditor johnny5k submitted the remix to the /r/videos[3] subreddit.

  • 08/21/15--11:56: Ghost (Destiny)
  • About

    Ghost (Destiny) refers to the Destiny protagonist’s artificial intelligence companion portrayed by Game of the Thrones star, Peter Dinklage. The character has come to great online notoriety due to Dinklage’s seemingly lackluster performance for the character, specifically in the alpha release of the game, and has since been dubbed “Dinklebot” by fans as a mix between “Dingklage” and “robot”, and sometimes referred to as such in the same vein as Dinkleberg. As of “The Taken King” DLC pack, all lines originally voiced by Dinklage, as well as all voice overs for the Ghost in the future, have been replaced by prominent video game voice actor, Nolan North.

    Origin

    On June 11th, 2015, during the Sony conference, Playstation Blog employee Sid Shaun interviewed Bungie community manager ‘DeeJ’ about whether or not Peter Dinklage was in fact in the game. DeeJ confirmed this and went on to say:[1]

    Peter Dinklage is the voice of the ghost in this demo. As you learn more about Destiny, you just might be hearing more from him.

    The ghost is your interactive companion, he’s your partner, he’s your wingman. You’ll take him with you everywhere you go. A lot of Destiny is about going into these ruins of our lost civilizations and unlocking their secrets so that we can safeguard our future. The ghost is going to be a bit part of that. So when you come across technology from the golden age that fell and collapsed, when that cataclysm occurred, the ghost will be the thing that you pull out to resurrect that technology.

    The interview was recorded and uploaded to Playstation’s official YouTube channel the same day (shown below).



    Spread

    Following the announcement of a playable version of the alpha build of Destiny, many fans began talking about what to expect from the game, including Peter Dinklage as the Ghost. The earliest known use of the term “Dinklebot” online was on June 10th, 2014, on Reddit, via the /r/Gaming subreddit in which user Merkinary inquired as to whether the Ghost was voiced by Peter Dinklage.[2]

    -Merkinary
    Is it voiced by Peter Dinklage? Sounded like it to me.

    -infestedjoker:
    Yes some people like to call him tyrionbot lol
    -Scaryclouds:
    Dinklebot?

    Following the release of the alpha build of Bungie’s Destiny, on June 12th, 2014, many fans began to criticize the seemingly poor performance of Game of Throne’s actor, Peter Dinklage, whom had become well known for his acting abilities. On June 14th, 2014, YouTuber SevenisYellow uploaded a clip from the alpha of Dinklage’s character saying, “That Wizard came from the moon,” (shown below, right).



    On June 18th, 2014, YouTuber GameZone uploaded a parody of Dinklage’s line with various impressions of other famous actors preforming the same line (shown below, left). On July 20th, 2014, YouTuber hoodwinkedfool uploaded a remix of the “wizard” line along with samples of other lines by Dinklage which were considered poorly performed (shown below, right).



    Due to the backlash from Dinklage’s performance in the alpha, Bungie stated that Dinklage would re-record his lines in time for the beta.[3] On July 17th, 2014, Eurogamer uploaded a comparison video of Dinklage’s performances in both the alpha and beta (shown below, left). On October 18th, 2014, Smosh Games released an episode of the Honest Trailers series in which both Destiny and Dinklage’s performance are criticized (shown below, right). Elsewhere on the web, The website Dinklebot.net was created for personal tracking of a Destiny players character.[4] On Twitter there a various posts with the hashtag “#dinklebot”,[5] as well as on Tumblr.[6]



    Notable Developments

    On August 4th, 2015, Bungie announced that with the upcoming DLC, “The Taken King”, it would be replacing all lines that included Peter Dinklage’s voice acting work, and replacing it with that of seasoned video game voice actor Nolan North.The story was reported on by several news outlets,[7][8][9] as well as by “Rooster Teeth’s”: gaming news show, The Know in an episode titled “Destiny’s Dinklebot REPLACED?!” (shown below).

  • 08/24/15--13:25: Black Monday
  • Overview

    Black Monday is a term used to describe major historical events that occurred on the first day of a seven-day week, especially ones that carry negative connotations or otherwise undesirable consequences. In business jargon, the term is primarily associated with a stock market crash triggered by a momentary financial collapse within a single market and leads to a chain reaction of massive declines in stock prices across the rest of the world. It is not to be confused with Black Friday, an annual shopping sale event observed on the day after Thanksgiving in North America.

    Background

    The coinage of “Black Monday” is attributed to the U.S. congressman John Bell Williams (D-Mississippi), who used the term to to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education, a landmark case in which state-level segregation of public schools for black and white students was declared to be unconstitutional, on May 17th, 1954. However, it was introduced to the general public on a much larger scale on October 19th, 1987 to describe the worldwide stock market crash that started in Hong Kong and spread to the rest of Asian and European Markets, before eventually impacting the economy of the United States; within the same trading day, The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) fell exactly 508 points to 1,738.74 (22.61%), which remains the largest one-day percentage decline in the DJIA to this date.


    The terms Black Monday and Black Tuesday are also respectively applied to October 28 and October 29, 1929, which occurred after Black Thursday on October 24, which started the Stock Market Crash of 1929.

    Developments

    Black Monday 2011

    Entering the 21st century, the term became even more closely associated with major financial collapses through its usage on multiple occasions, most notably the sudden decline in asset values of global stock markets on August 8th, 2011, following the Standard & Poor’s unprecedented credit rating downgrade of the U.S. sovereign debt from AAA (“risk free”) to AA+ on the preceding Friday. By market close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 634.76 points (-5.55%) to close at 10,809.85, making it the 6th largest drop of the index in history.

    Black Monday 2015

    The second major “Black Monday” in the global stock market occurred on August 24th, 2015, when the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) Composite Index suffered a drastic decline of 8.45%, the booming economy’s worst decline in a single day in eight years.

  • 08/25/15--10:17: 2NE1
  • About

    2NE1 is an all-female musical group from South Korea, consisting of CL, Minzy, Dara (Sandara Park), and Park Bom. Since their debut in 2009, the group has garnered an international following for their K-POP style of music with a "hip hop"::http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/subcultures/rap-hip-hop influence, as well as their edgy, bright appearance.

    Online History

    Debut and Early Career

    2NE1 were officially formed in 2009 by the South Korean company YG Entertainment, and their first single was a collaboration with another group on the YG label, Big Bang, for a song called “Lollipop,” which was created as a commercial for a new LG mobile phone. Between its upload date of May 15th, 2009 and August 2015, the song has received over 56 million views on YouTube. It also sold over 3.3 million digital copies and topped the Gaon musical chart in April 2009.[1]



    Their first single by the group, released in May 2009 and titled “Fire,” incorporated many hip hop elements into a K-pop song written by producer Teddy Park. The group released two videos for the single, a “Space” version and a “Street” version. The “Space” version is more popular, with over 39 million views, while the “Street” version has over 12 million views. The single topped all of the Korean charts.[4]


    Japanese Debut and Later Albums

    The group planned to debut in Japan in 2011, but after the 2011 Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami the group released their record 2NE1 with no promotion or fanfare. Despite this, the record still reached number 36 on the Japanese charts, and the group performed for relief fundraisers with many other Korean stars.[1]

    2NE1 produced the group’s most popular single, “I Am the Best (내가 제일 잘 나가)”, which was first uploaded to YouTube on June 27th, 2011 and between then and August 2015 has received more than 130 million views and the single topped the world digital sales charts in 2014 after it was used in advertisement for the Microsoft Surface 3 tablet.[23][24]



    World Tour and Drug Scandal

    In 2014, 2NE1 released a full length record entitled Crush and embarked on the “All: Or Nothing” world tour, which gained them more international notoriety; in addition, they released “I am the Best” in America, where it became popular.[24]

    During the tour, news broke that Park Bom had attempted to smuggle 82 pills of medical narcotic amphetamines into South Korea in October of 2010. Prescribed the amphetamines by a doctor in the United States, where they are legal, Bom nonetheless attempted to use international mail to illegally transport the pills to South Korea. Although the incident was only discovered four years later, Bom withdrew her participation from all awards ceremonies in 2014, and only re-emerged to the public in 2015 after a long reclusive period.[17][18]

    Solo Careers

    Three members of 2NE1 are currently pursuing solo careers in addition to their work through the group. Park Bom has released two singles independently of 2NE1 that have reached number one on the Gaon Singles Chart, titled “You and I” and “Don’t Cry”. “You and I” is the most downloaded single by a solo female artist in the history of YG Entertainment. Dara works frequently as an actress and model, having appeared frequently on Korean television in a variety of cameo and speaking roles.[20][25]

    CL began releasing solo music in 2013, scoring an international hit with “나쁜 기집애 (The Baddest Female).” As of August 2015 CL is managed by Scooter Braun, who also manages American pop stars like Justin Bieber, and has announced that her debut American album, where she raps and sings in English, will be released in fall of 2015, following the debut of her initial single “Doctor Pepper” on August 14th, 2015.[19]



    Online Presence

    2NE1 maintains profiles on all Western social media sites, including Facebook, where they have over 9 million likes, and Instagram where they have barely posted but still have over 375,000 followers.[5][8] Their fans are called Blackjacks, as an allusion to the number 21 in the name of the group, and club maintains official fan club web sites in English and Japanese as well as an official Twitter and a subreddit.[6][7][11] There are also localized profiles in other regions, including Japan and China, where they have an official Weibo with over 800,000 followers.[10]

    In addition, each member has their own official western profiles on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.[12][13][14][15][16] The official 2NE1 YouTube account has 312 videos and almost 2.9 million subscribed as of August 2015; 90 of those videos have over 1 million views. [4]

    “Bad Blood” Controversy

    In July of 2015, several media outlets, most vocally Jezebel, began discussing the visual similarities between Taylor Swift’s“Bad Blood” music video, which had been nominated for several MTV Video Music Awards, and the video for 2NE1’s “Come Back Home.” “Bad Blood” was directed by a Korean-American filmmaker named Joseph Kahn, and some writers assumed that this fact and the visual similarities, which occurred in several different scenes could make a valid case for plagiarism.[22]


    Joseph Kahn responded to the allegations made by Jezebel by saying that the allegation was slanderous:

    “The implication your writer is making is explicit: I am a foreigner born overseas and I am trying to reconnect with my birth country and have obvious motive to copy it.

    I do not listen to Kpop. I am American. And this is an unethical, slandering article."

  • 08/25/15--13:13: Today You, Tomorrow Me
  • About

    “Today You, Tomorrow Me” is a memorable quote from a heartwarming anecdote told by Redditor Jason Horner about a Mexican immigrant who refused to take $20 in exchange for giving him roadside assistance.

    Origin

    On December 13th, 2010, Redditor MD786 submitted a post titled “Have you ever picked up a hitch-hiker?” to the /r/AskReddit[1] subreddit, which subsequently reached the front page with over 2,500 votes (97% upvoted) prior to being archived. In the comments section, Redditor Jason Horner (a.k.a. rhoner) posted a story about a Mexican immigrant couple who selflessly helped him on the side of the road with a blown out tire. When Horner insisted on giving the couple $20 for their aid, the man refused and said “Today you, tomorrow me.”


    Just about every time I see someone I stop. I kind of got out of the habit in the last couple of years, moved to a big city and all that, my girlfriend wasn’t too stoked on the practice. Then some shit happened to me that changed me and I am back to offering rides habitually. If you would indulge me, it is long story and has almost nothing to do with hitch hiking other than happening on a road.
    This past year I have had 3 instances of car trouble. A blow out on a freeway, a bunch of blown fuses and an out of gas situation. All of them were while driving other people’s cars which, for some reason, makes it worse on an emotional level. It makes it worse on a practical level as well, what with the fact that I carry things like a jack and extra fuses in my car, and know enough not to park, facing downhill, on a steep incline with less than a gallon of fuel.
    Anyway, each of these times this shit happened I was DISGUSTED with how people would not bother to help me. I spent hours on the side of the freeway waiting, watching roadside assistance vehicles blow past me, for AAA to show. The 4 gas stations I asked for a gas can at told me that they couldn’t loan them out “for my safety” but I could buy a really shitty 1-gallon one with no cap for $15. It was enough, each time, to make you say shit like “this country is going to hell in a handbasket.”
    But you know who came to my rescue all three times? Immigrants. Mexican immigrants. None of them spoke a lick of the language. But one of those dudes had a profound affect on me.
    He was the guy that stopped to help me with a blow out with his whole family of 6 in tow. I was on the side of the road for close to 4 hours. Big jeep, blown rear tire, had a spare but no jack. I had signs in the windows of the car, big signs that said NEED A JACK and offered money. No dice. Right as I am about to give up and just hitch out there a van pulls over and dude bounds out. He sizes the situation up and calls for his youngest daughter who speaks english. He conveys through her that he has a jack but it is too small for the Jeep so we will need to brace it. He produces a saw from the van and cuts a log out of a downed tree on the side of the road. We rolled it over, put his jack on top, and bam, in business. I start taking the wheel off and, if you can believe it, I broke his tire iron. It was one of those collapsible ones and I wasn’t careful and I snapped the head I needed clean off. Fuck.
    No worries, he runs to the van, gives it to his wife and she is gone in a flash, down the road to buy a tire iron. She is back in 15 minutes, we finish the job with a little sweat and cussing (stupid log was starting to give), and I am a very happy man. We are both filthy and sweaty. The wife produces a large water jug for us to wash our hands in. I tried to put a 20 in the man’s hand but he wouldn’t take it so I instead gave it to his wife as quietly as I could. I thanked them up one side and down the other. I asked the little girl where they lived, thinking maybe I could send them a gift for being so awesome. She says they live in Mexico. They are here so mommy and daddy can pick peaches for the next few weeks. After that they are going to pick cherries then go back home. She asks if I have had lunch and when I told her no she gave me a tamale from their cooler, the best fucking tamale I have ever had.
    So, to clarify, a family that is undoubtedly poorer than you, me, and just about everyone else on that stretch of road, working on a seasonal basis where time is money, took an hour or two out of their day to help some strange dude on the side of the road when people in tow trucks were just passing me by. Wow…
    But we aren’t done yet. I thank them again and walk back to my car and open the foil on the tamale cause I am starving at this point and what do I find inside? My fucking $20 bill! I whirl around and run up to the van and the guy rolls his window down. He sees the $20 in my hand and just shaking his head no like he won’t take it. All I can think to say is “Por Favor, Por Favor, Por Favor” with my hands out. Dude just smiles, shakes his head and, with what looked like great concentration, tried his hardest to speak to me in English:
    “Today you…. tomorrow me.”
    Rolled up his window, drove away, his daughter waving to me in the rear view. I sat in my car eating the best fucking tamale of all time and I just cried. Like a little girl. It has been a rough year and nothing has broke my way. This was so out of left field I just couldn’t deal.
    In the 5 months since I have changed a couple of tires, given a few rides to gas stations and, once, went 50 miles out of my way to get a girl to an airport. I won’t accept money. Every time I tell them the same thing when we are through:
    “Today you…. tomorrow me.”

  • 08/25/15--17:45: Politwoops
  • About

    Politwoops is a web application and a network of connected websites devoted to archiving the deleted tweets of government officials. The tool operated between June 2012 and August 2015, and was widely cited by political journalists.

    History

    Politwoops was launched on May 30th, 2012 by the Sunlight Foundation, a non-profit devoted to transparent government practices. Using Twitter’s developer API, the site tracked the Twitter accounts of all the members of Congress in the United States, as well as President Barack Obama, and the accounts of candidates running for president in 2012]

    According to Sunlight Foundation employee Nicko Margolies, the site would track when the politician deleted the tweet, how much time elapsed between when it was posted and when it was deleted, and include screenshots of any links to external sites. Upon its launch it already had an archive of over 3,000 tweets; by the end of the site, three years later, it had archived over 15,500.[1]

    Cessation of Service

    On June 3th, 2015, Twitter contacted the Sunlight Foundation and informed them that the exception being made to the Twitter Terms of Service that allowed Politwoops to collect and archive the tweets of politicians would no longer be honored. Twitter claimed in a statement to Gawker that “Honoring the expectation of user privacy for all accounts is a priority for us, whether the user is anonymous or a member of Congress.”[4] However, this is in direct opposition to the law, which says that what American elected officials say publicly (Twitter is considered a public forum) is a matter of public record. [3]

    The Sunlight Foundation claimed to have not received any warning of the decision. In fact, according to the Christopher Gates, the president of the foundation, Twitter had actually cut the feed to their application three weeks before any communication had occurred between the two. Gates stated, “. . .We were told that their decision was not something that we could appeal, and, most surprisingly, they were not interested in reviewing any of the email conversation from 2012. Clearly, something changed -- and we’re not likely to ever know what it was.”

    The cessation of Politwoops – first in America, and then with the 30 worldwide affiliates that used the same software – was covered in most major news publications, including the Guardian , the Washington Post, and the New York Daily News.[5][6][7] In addition, many Twitter users involved in the political sphere on both the conservative and progressive sides of government publicly stated their support for the tool using Twitter, resulting in over 5,000 tweets using their name.[8]

    Highlights

    Jeff Miller’s Birther Tweet

    Upon its launch in on May 30th, 2012, one of the tweets recorded by Politwoops came from Florida Congressman Jeff Miller, who asked “Was Obama Born in the United States?” and linked to a Facebook poll asking the same question, indicating that the representative was supportive of the Birther Movement. Miller’s staff, when asked about the deleted tweet by Slate reporter Jeremy Stahl, said that the Congressman did not support the movement and that the tweet had been sent by mistake. Miller deleted his Twitter account that day.[9]

    Bowe Bergdahl Release Tweets

    After the release of prisoner of war Bowe Bergdahl from the Taliban, many politicians tweeted to express happiness that Bergdahl had been returned to his home country. However, when Republicans began to criticize the Obama administration for exchanging five high-level Taliban prisoners for Bergdahl, who many believed defected from his base, members of the GOP began deleting their congratulatory tweets. The members of the goverment who deleted tweets collected by Politwoops included Rep. Stephen F. Lynch (D-MA), Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE), Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV), and Joni Ernst, GOP Senate candidate in Iowa.[10]
