In an act of online activism, Childish Gambino fans are reclaiming the r/Donald subreddit

This post was originally published on this site

Until last week, r/thedonald was a subreddit where Reddit users gathered to share posts related to the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Despite the subreddit’s description as “the place where we discuss in an unbiased manner Donald Trump’s great contributions to modern society,” the page is littered by hate-filled posts from people who look to Trump as a twisted savior of sorts, sent to save the American public from its diversity thugs.

Over the past week, however, fans of Donald Glover have taken the subreddit page by storm, posting memes and photos of the actor/rapper in a collective effort to reclaim “the Donald” name. At the very least, the move is a response to Childish Gambino‘s potent, racially charged “This is America” music video release. At best, it’s a form on online activism. And the most wonderful part is — it’s actually working. The subreddit page is now almost solely devoted to Childish Gambino/Donald Glover.

The following post, for instance, has been upvoted more than 45,000 times.

The One True Donald from thedonald

Another post draw some starkly accurate comparisons when juxtaposing the two Donalds, forcing subredditers to stop and question.

Not a racist ✅ Not a rapist ✅ Can read ✅ Was never bankrupt ✅ Likes Mexicans ✅ Talented ✅ Pays his taxes ✅ Handsome ✅ Loves immigrants ✅ Not a puppet for Russia ✅ Doesn’t want to fuck his daughter ✅ Must be the real one true Donald ✅ from thedonald

Finally, one post moves to campaign for a Donald Glover run for presidency. Step aside, Kanye.

Made this to screen print. Thought it fit well here. from thedonald

The hope is that if enough Donald Glover fans start posting on r/the_donald, they can reclaim this subreddit as well. In a world where activism can take many forms, users of social media are realizing the digital domain as a space for creating First Amendment political movements and reclaiming hateful digital spaces as places of empowerment.

Reddit Is Convinced That Swedish House Mafia Is Playing Ultra 2018

This post was originally published on this site

As we head into day 2 of Ultra Music Festival, everyone is speculating who will be returning at Ultra Music Festival 2018 as this year’s special guest. In fact, last night we asked the attendees who they believe will be the special guest: 80% said Swedish House Mafia, and 20% said Daft Punk. Rumors are

A cryptic SoundCloud upload has some speculating it’s a Daft Punk ‘leak’

Daft Punk Resident Advisor

Activity on the r/daftpunk subreddit is momentarily diverting ticket holders’ attention from the Swedish House Mafia rumor mill, and directing it instead toward Daft Punk‘s.

The speculation surrounding a Daft Punk reunion on the final day of Ultra Music Festival has continued to mount since the iron-on patches enclosed in the Ultra 20 ticket canisters originally spawned speculation that Daft Punk would close out the festival. A SoundCloud upload entitled “x” by a “User19972001200420132019” has made its way to the r/daftpunk, and despite some Redditors’ doubts, many believe the track to be an “unconfirmed leak” of some kind. The moderators of the subreddit reportedly know the source of the “leak” and have determined that the SoundCloud post could be legitimate.

User19972001200420132019’s supposed leak has since been compared to a previous “leak” of “Overnight,” a single that Daft Punk released in 2017. Redditors have also questioned the significance of the username. Some perceive the series of numbers to be arbitrary, whereas other have suggested that the years represent album release dates.

Comment from discussion x.

The SoundCloud post surfaces — for now — as a connection to a possible Daft Punk anniversary performance at Ultra Music Festival that is tenuous at best.

Reddit users appear to have cracked the code concerning Ultra’s surprise guests

The three iron-on patches that Ultra Music Festival ticket holders received in their special edition black and orange 20th anniversary canisters appeared in addition to ear plugs and temporary tattoos. Presumed to be innocuous party favors provided in honor of the milestone birthday celebration, the patches elicited minimal attention from pass purchasers prior to Ultra’s provocative tweet on March 10.

Ticket holders have since begun to interpret the three patches enclosed within each ticket canister as emblematic of the three unannounced acts that will close each respective day of the festival this year. The analysis has led several aspiring attendees to evaluate the circular patch with a singular dot as evidence that deadmau5, whose eye matches the design of the patch, will deliver the ending performance to the first day of Ultra.

 

Mind = blown. from r/UMF

The theory that Swedish House Mafia will give a reunion performance at “Ultra 20” on March 24, 2018 — four years to the day of the mega group’s previous closure of the festival — is convincingly supported by fans’ conjecture that the three dots on the flag-shaped patch stand in for the three members of the trio. Fans have read the patch’s two additional dots as signifiers that Swedish House Mafia will close day two.

The final, and inarguably the most explosive conjecture, rests in the identity of the third patch, an astronaut holding up three fingers. From the white and orange/gold color scheme to the astronaut logo itself, ticket holders have analyzed the third patch as proof that Daft Punk will make a landmark return to close out Ultra’s last day on March 25.

However far-fetched or plausible the speculations seem, good guesses will remain just that — good guesses — until festival organizers release the final phase in Ultra’s bombshell lineup.

Student translates Star Wars’ ‘Cantina Theme’ into a mathematical equation [Watch]

This post was originally published on this site

The Star Wars subreddit has unearthed a new, unusual gem.

Reddit user ‘smallgoblin’ has ascended to Reddit royalty after posting a video clip that shows the user converting the movie series’ ‘Cantina Theme’ into a mathematical equation.

“It started with x+4…and I couldn’t unhear it,” smallgoblin wrote of the experiment, “Instead of doing my math homework I figured out what the Cantina Theme would sound like if your instrument was a pencil.”

The formulaic result would be x + 4783 – x + 4v|VE| (x + 4)(f – 711) = A, an answer that when worked through comes out to be ~299,792,457, or in other words, the speed of light, when measured in meters per second.

Smallgoblin’s post has since become the fifth most-upvoted post of all time in the history of the Star Wars subreddit.
