Hee Haw is an American television variety show featuring country music and humor with fictional rural Kornfield Kounty as a backdrop. It aired on CBS-tv from 1969–1971 before a 20-year run in local syndication. The show was inspired by Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, the major difference being that Hee Haw was far less topical, and was centered on country music and rural Southern culture. Co-hosted by country artists Buck Owens and Roy Clark for most of the series' run, the show was equally well known for its voluptuous, scantily-clad women in stereotypical farmer's daughter outfits and country-style minidresses, male stars Jim and Jon Hager and its cornpone humor.
Hee Haw's appeal, however, was not limited to a rural audience. It was successful in all of the major markets, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Other niche programs such as The Lawrence Welk Show (which targeted older audiences) and Soul Train (a black-oriented program) also rose to prominence in syndication during the era. Like Laugh-In, the show minimized production costs by taping all of the recurring sketches for a season in batches— setting up for the Cornfield one day, the Joke Fence another, etc. At the height of its popularity, an entire year's worth of shows would be taped in two separate week-long sessions, then individual shows would be assembled from edited sections. Only musical performances were taped with a live audience; a laugh track was added to all other segments.
The series was taped at WLAC-TV (now WTVF) and Opryland USA in Nashville. The show was produced by Yongestreet Productions through the mid-1980s; it was later produced by Gaylord Entertainment, which distributed the show in syndication. The show's name was coined by show business talent manager and producer Bernie Brillstein and derives from a common English onomatopoeia used to describe the braying sound that a donkey makes.

10 Queer Films That Will Teach You More LGBT History Than 'Stonewall'

 The Times of Harvey Milk
While one might be more familiar with Gus Van Sant's Milk starring Sean Penn, the original documentary about Harvey Milk, one of the first openly gay elected officials in America, is also a cultural touchstone, preserved by the National Film Registry as an American work of art. The film documents Milk's political ascent in 1970s San Francisco from neighborhood activist to San Francisco City Council. It features many of the people central to Milk's story and a few familiar faces, including current Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who succeeded then-San Francisco Mayor George Moscone, who was assassinated alongside Harvey Milk in 1978 by Dan White, a scorned fellow city council member. 

In a review, noted film critic B. Ruby Rich wrote, "The Times of Harvey Milk has become a film that defies any expiration date."

Man Buns-Explained

So when did these things become popular?

Largely within the past couple of years. Google Trends is one useful gauge, showing a few pops of man bun curiosity in 2013, a surge of interest in 2014, and then an unabated rise through 2015.

That's a good proxy for public interest, but it's by no means the first time the phrase showed up. Man buns showed up in New York Times trend pieces as early as January 2012, and one of the first Tweets about the man bun came in 2011:

So the man bun has existed throughout history, but it's safe to say the bun really came into its own after 2012.
