Impact of Technology On The Field of Arts

Nearly everyone enjoys the different types of entertainment, and some people enjoy even more being entertainers. They want to become actors, comedians, dancers, singers. We used to go inside theatres after a hard day’s work to relax and see our favorite plays. But only in the last hundred years have we been able to record sound and pictures and to broadcast them through air. These improvements have brought fun and entertainment to every corner of the world and into most of our homes.

Technology has indeed made it possible for us to see entertainment in a new light. For one, technology has made it also possible for us to store our memories. Actors and singers long dead seem to come to life again every time their films or records are played. We can store a seemingly countless number of these records and films in CDs, hard drives and other storing devices like our computer. This makes it possible for us to entertain ourselves almost anywhere- at home, at the office, at the park, the bus; as long as we bring our devices with us. One can actually live without TV these days as long as one has a computer device and internet connection.

The world of entertainment has grown tremendously, and it can teach us as well as entertain us. Today, broadcasting is the most important form of popular entertainment. But now it is challenged by still newer inventions. Video playback and recording equipments make it possible for home viewers to buy or record their favorite shows. Many classic movies are already available for home viewing. This new equipment may encourage many viewers to spend fewer hours watching network offerings of situation comedies and action dramas. And now, we can record, transfer, and produce our own videos using cellular phones.

At the same time, the internet has revolutionized viewing habits in another way. The internet provides information on a lot of sources for movies, music, and other forms of entertainment. With internet connection, people can bring programs directly into their computer by doing downloads and many of these downloads are offered for free. Not only does it provide entertainment but we can even do some transactions like when you want to buy stun guns online.

The internet offer entertainment on almost all particular interests- music, news, and special information such as stock markets, weather, and social networking. These sources are made available to us faster than ever, as fast as the stun gun effects.  We can update on news even before they get broadcasted on TV through the different websites on the internet.

Never in recorded history have Entertainment and arts been so important in the lives of so many people. Modern inventions such as the internet have put nearly every person within reach of music and drama all day, every day, at home, and away from home. The internet has also made it possible for people not just become viewers but also the performers themselves as they are able to upload their own videos on different sites. The future of entertainment and arts is taking shape through technology and the people themselves.

Arts And Entertainment

There are times that due to our busy schedules and different careers in life, we tend to forget to spend some time with our family which is really bad. We must always remember that in order to get closer and have a better relationship with our dearest love ones, we must able to give some of our time to them. Lets all enjoy time together as long as we can still have it. It is very essential because we can never bring back the time that we’ve already lost so no matter how busy you are, you are still obliged to find ways on how you can let them feel your love for them. By simply meeting them and spend quality time doing activities together, you can able to make them happy. And one thing that you can do to make your time with your family the best ones is through arts and entertainment.

The most popular way of spending time with family is to stay at home and enjoy each and everyone’s presence. You can choose some good movies and go with a movie marathon with your siblings. In this way, you can also check them out and ask them what’s going onto their lives. You can open up with them while watching your favorite movies of all time. You can scream, be scared, laugh and be happy together. Just make sure that in choosing the movies go for those that everyone from the oldest to the youngest ones will surely enjoy. You can also ask your parents to make some delicious foods for a more exciting movie experience.

The next activity that you can try out is to sing and dance with your family. Do you still remember how happy it was when all of you used to sing and dance with your favorite song in the karaoke machine? Do you want to see your parents sing their favorite love song again? If yes, then making a simple and small song and dance party in the comfort of your own home is the best way to spend your free time. You can ask your siblings to sing and dance under Jason Derulo album songs and the one that will make the best performance will get a prize from you. You can also showcase your talents to them by singing your own favorite Jason Derulo songs and inspire them by letting them see your glamorous song and dance number.

Movies And Other Media

Watching foreign language movies is a popular way of learning a new language. This is not surprising as movies are entertaining as well.

Foreign Movie Subtitles
It is important to note that while it is possible to learn a language via foreign language movies, you should also try to practice what you have learned with someone who actually speaks the language you are interested to learn as a first language, so that your mistakes can be corrected accordingly.

The most important thing when purchasing foreign language movies for learning purposes is the availability of subtitles. Do not just get a foreign language DVD with English subtitles. Get one with subtitles in the original language the movies was shot in. This way, you not only learn how a language is spoken, but also how it is written, provided the majority of the writing uses the basic Latin alphabet.

I would recommend actually jotting down the foreign subtitles together with its English translation as it does seem to help in memorizing the newly learned words.

Audio Media
Aside from foreign language movies, you can also use other media in your quest to learn a new language. Though most language lessons can be found on CDs, quite a few can be found on the popular mp3 format.

This format will enable students to carry their lessons in tiny mp3 players wherever they go. They can learn on the bus, in the car, while cycling, at the gym or when they go for a run. Admittedly, this might not be the most effective way to learn a language, but many people feel comfortable learning this way.

One of the plus points about the mp3 format is its small file size. This means that you can compress many hours of lessons into a player the size of your thumb.

Software
I find that apart from actually attending a proper language class, foreign language software is a fantastic way to learn a new language. Most language software are interactive. Some have built it games to make learning a new language all the more fun.

The more advanced software makes use audio software and an online data base to help correct intonation and pronunciation mistakes. This is as close as you can get too actually having a teacher right there beside you.

Movies and TV Series Have an Impact

The world as represented by the media:

Global warming

War in Iraq

Child soldiers in Africa

Massive unemployment in the west

Rising prices for food, rent and gas

Heart attacks, stress and cancer

Deforestation and poaching

Housing shortage

Increasing crime levels

Increasing divorce rates

Blue collar crime

Now you know why I NEVER watch the news. Does the above information affect my life? Yes if I pay attention to it. No if I FOCUS on what I desire in my life.

Okay so tell me I’m ignorant I simply have to know what’s going on to be informed and come across as an educated person that the tribe wants to do business with. Well I don’t belong to the tribe and they can do business amongst themselves thank you. Yeah I don’t even watch TV. Okay so that’s a lie. I do watch TV, but I choose very carefully. Non of that mindless sitcom, violent movies and the news. I stay focused on what I desire all the time and I find that if I watch trash I get trash! The power of what the mind exudes is still not quite analysed by the scientists yet. But it is now a fact that our thoughts send out waves just like the broadcast station. So it makes sense that what we watch affects us.

So are you going to fill your mind with more news that will get you no where?
Deforestation (my blues) is a terrible crime against the planet but the more I focus on getting rich I’m able to put my money where my mouth is and help organisations that I approove of. I’m in a position to give money which is what systems require to educate the public. But by just watching the news all I’ll see is more land laid bare, see more stories of the poor people and the animals that have no where to go. Those impressions make me sad and depressed and I don’t get to help the forest, the people or the animals. The only thing I’ve done is given the TV station another viewer. Another viewer means the TV station has another stastitic for the media buyers that place commercials. You get the drift now of how this works?

I’ll tell you something else one of my businesses is making movies. How’s that? Even more reason I should be watching the TV and the movies I’ve been told so I can see what my competition is up to! I don’t care for competition. The only thing I compete against is myself. I choose the producers I work with, I choose the kind of movie and commercials I desire to be involved with. And I’m doing just splendidly but if I watch all the negative stuff I’ll be led to believe that I must be happy to get any job, because the media and every body that pays attention to the media will tell you, work is hard to come by.

So what are you watching?

Are you sitting with your family infront of the TV watching senseless violent movies and stupid sitcoms that reinforce its okay to be stuck in a rut? Do you and yours talk about what you are watching? Is your child left to work everything out on his/her own? At least talk about what you are watching. The media is made up of hype and the news channels thrive on getting it delivered to the public as quickly as possible. Movies and commercials are thought up by other people’s minds – often only with profit in mind. Violent movies are top box revenue collectors. The more individuals that enjoy that kind of entertainment the more those kind of movies will be produced. And yes violent movies do perpertrate feelings of fear and anguish. Lets face it we get involved in the movies we watch. That’s what entertainment is about – letting go and getting engrossed.

Movies and Story Telling at Its Best

The movie industry in the USA has delivered a forum for story-telling that is unparalleled in human history. The general public can draw from this delivery system to spend a few hours in total fantasy, or to have cultures presented and viewpoints acted out to inform and entertain.

Story-telling has always been a unique and honored method of communication and of making sense of the activities, possibilities and limitations around us. The ideas that often are lost in direct articulation, can be better understood when acted out in story form.

The USA presents a noble and free palette upon which uncensored story-telling is possible. And our free enterprise system supports and encourages the many delivery systems from which we can draw.

The time-honored movie delivery system of the public theatre is a grand example of combining entertainment and communication. Most of us have enjoyed the “dinner and movie”, allowing for an inexpensive and thoroughly entertaining evening out.

Many of us have experienced the slightly weird but thoroughly enjoyable drive-in movie. This was often an eerie experience.

Rows of cars lined up in the dark to allow for the occupants to view a common movie shown on a huge screen was the norm. The nights could be clear and warm, with the accompanying bugs and mosquitoes flying in the window. The night could offer rain or wind, adding texture to a mystery that one could never experience but at a drive-in. Fog could roll through, adding to the drama.

And the eeriness of rows of dark cars, some with brake lights on, often with a horn blaring here and there, made the trip to the restroom an adventure.

This is just another but very appealing form of story-telling such as humans have participated in since the day of Cave Men. The uniquely human activity of trying to make sense out of life, as told in story form, is probably one of the most satisfying activities available to people.

The movie rental store added a new dimension to the movie delivery system. What luxury to bring the rented movie home. One could watch the movie at leisure in the peace and sanctuary of one’s own home. The facilities are clean, the dinner preparation could become a part of the fun. The safety and security is a luxury that, 100 years ago, a King could not enjoy.

Of course, one would need to return the rented movie on time. This could add a bit of drama of its own, remembering to put the rented movie in the car on the way to work, remembering to actually drive to the rental store at some time during the day. But still, a great time was had by all.

A new and convenient movie delivery system has developed in the form of Netflix. One enters into an agreement with this company in which they will withdraw a stated dollar amount from your checking account monthly. In return, you are contracted to receive at home 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 movies, or whatever is convenient for you, at any one time.

They send you the movies you have chosen online, you watch at your leisure, and send it back in the mail. As soon as they receive the movie (usually 1 day), they return the next movie in your queue. This means you truly can watch a movie in your own time with no overdue charges. The movie is popped into the mail and forgotten.
