Entertainment and Media Effecting Sleeping Patterns

Now a day’s, we all enjoy the use of different types and cultures of media and provides us with another lengthy list of distractions and things to keep our minds busy. I am going to talk about different aspects of media that keep us awake and make the next morning impossible to get out of bed.


In today’s society we constantly face a struggle to stay focused on goals and daily tasks. With the improvement of technology and media, it is too easy to get side tracked. With adverts everywhere on the internet, it is so easy to find yourself deep into the internet and struggling to find your way back out and then getting focused back to what you wanted to accomplish.

YouTube has been the reason to many distractions for me. The unlimited amount of videos and the continuing growth of genres of videos YouTube is one of my biggest distractions and I find myself sat there for hours on end watching pointless videos and before you know it, you’ve achieved nothing and not even started your work. This is the same example for when it comes to sleeping, most people aim for 8-10 hours’ sleep a night and because of lives distractions such as TV, YouTube, Music etc. I would be very sure that people will find themselves missing out on hours of sleep a day and 10’s of hours sleep a week.

Turn It Off

At night when your tired but there’s that film or tv programme you want to watch, save it for the next day. It is known that when your mind is concentrating on something it tends to not worry about sleep, its how many kids these days go hours or days without sleep thanks to video games. But it’s not just the activity of the brain its the lights source of the tv or monitor that is causing you to wake up. As we all know, our bodies are programmed to be tired at night and awake during daytime whereas the light source off the tv will affect this and will affect your tiredness and may not make it possible to fall asleep but may make it more difficult. Most importantly it is the eye strain of the bright light on your tired eyes and it is the intriguing aspect of that moment when you close your eyes it sounds like something fun is happening so you begin to watch again. So keep your room dark, quiet and save yourself from the painful streining eyes in the morning.

Try it for yourself for 2 weeks. No TV before bed, phones on silent, no computer games in bed and let us know if it helped @Insomniac_info

Everythings A Remix

Here I watch all four episodes of Everything Is A remix. I will place my thoughts on each episaode. Enjoy.

Everythings An Remix – Part 1

From the first 30 seconds, there is already glimpses of “Remixed” culture by the way he uses the Star Wars Intro to introduce the episode which I thought was clever. He then again uses the same tactic when he shows PacMan. I knew a lot of music artists use other artists music but not as much as he shown in this and to think so much more happens. To think so many artists could be and possibly on the verge of piracy or plagiarism to a certain extent and it just proves that when Led Zeppelin got sued for it. The problem seems to be that they took all credit for the album they released, with several songs too similar to previous versions. Whereas if they had branded it as a “cover” album they would had been okay i suppose.

Everything Is A Remix – Part 2

In this part, it seems the message is “Creation Requires Influence”. This is a statement i somewhat agree with. I think it is perfectly alright to use techniques someone else has used and put your stamp on it, show how you think you can make it better. A lot of films these days are old films reproduced constantly to keep the audiences and the money in the business. There are multiple sequels of several films i can think of, and multiple remakes.
A lot of today’s remix culture is ideas expanded into new ideas. People are taking what they’ve seen and making it theirs, whilst improving it or not, but they do and will carry on doing it.

Everything Is A Remix – Part 3

I Invented Nothing New. To Tech That Comparatively Few Men Are Responsible For Greatest Forward Steps Of Mankind Is The Worst Sort Of Nonsense. Henry Ford

To me that quote from Henry Ford, is very true. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for the past work work of others. That is how we evolve as a world, and as a race, is we take peoples work and improve it and look at how we can improve it that it will be significant to us. That is the message of part 3, it shows alot of things if not anything is original, all ideas have been previous ideas but further developed and transformed.


Everything Is A Remix – Part 4

In Part 4, the feel i get from this, is that everything is about greed in todays society. Nobody wants to help each other, we all want the profit, we all want the big house, big car, the big bank balance. This is why i think Patents are so often now thanks people thinking there ideas are intellectual property. Everything is a bout money or fame and maybe that is the wrong way to be thinking bout this. The whole world is struggling at the moment, countries are in recession, global warming etc. We should be pushing each other as a species and pushing each other to become better and do better things with what we have previously succeeded at.

Social Evolution

Thank You for reading my views on the “Everything Is A Remix”.
