YOLO :) An acronym for You Only Live Once! This motto is similar to the mottoes: You have only got once chance to live or Enjoy it while you can. People often use these phrases to persuade their friends to take risks or do something they normally would not do! The phrase has been a motto for people for a long time, but the shortened version, YOLO has gained popularity since the release of the song The Motto by Drake and Tyga. Source: Urban Dictionary

Harlem Shake (meme)

The Harlem Shake is an Internet meme that went viral on YouTube in early February 2013. The meme is in the form of a video that began being replicated according to a similar concept by many people.

 

The art form of the meme was established in a video uploaded on February 2 by The Sunny Coast Skate, 5 teenagers from Queensland, Australia.¬† The teenagers’ video, in its turn, was a follow-up to a video by a YouTube comedy vlogger named Filthy Frank featuring a part where several costumed people danced to the song ‘Harlem Shake’ by Baauer

History

Creation

The art form of this meme was established by five teenagers known as The Sunny Coast Skate from Queensland, Australia. After a while, more people started to replicate the original video and upload their own versions to YouTube, therefore Harlem Shake became what is called an Internet meme, in this case a series of similar videos re-created according to a similar concept.

 

Viral spread

On February 10, the upload rate of Harlem Shake videos reached 4,000 per day. As of February 11, about 12,000 versions of the popular Internet meme had been uploaded to YouTube, garnering over 44 million unique views. As of February 15, about 40,000 Harlem Shake videos had been uploaded, totaling 175 million views.

 

As a result of the popularity of the phenomenon, Baauer’s single reached #1 on the iTunes America chart and #2 on iTunes in the UK and Australia on February 15, 2013.

Westcott plaza is one of the most recognizable gateways to Florida State University, beautifully paved with commemorative bricks inscribed with names of Florida State alumni, friends and family members.

Westcott fountain, a gift from the 1915 and 1917 classes, is the centerpiece of the courtyard. Since 1917, the Westcott fountain has been a symbol of Florida State University’s proud heritage, and pays homage to those who came before. Westcott fountain stands out like a beacon and is unarguably the most iconic location on FSU campus.
