Radio 1's Red Nose Day Challenege

Radio 1’s Red Nose Day Challenge

Nick Grimshaw will be helping to raise as much money as possible in his 3 and half hour radio show on the 7th of March for Red Nose Day.  Help share this guys, lets get the word around.

My 24 hour media fast

Lasted a grand total of 6 hours!  Impressive, no?  Well it’s a dismal result yes but man was it hard!  Just made a quick video detailing what it is I did, how I kept busy and how I gave up.

Maybe you guys could give it a go and see how long you can last?

That’s for 24 hours with no: Television, Film, Radio, Internet, Gaming, Newspaper/Magazines, Ipod/Ipad.  Enjoy!

The new way to protest

People dancing to Scream & Shout by Will.i.am outside the town hall in Manchester.  This was done in protest against council cuts resulting in the shutting down of the Levenshulme library.

This was filmed on a mobile so apologies for the poor sound & shaky video.

Everything is a remix – Remix Culture

Just watched the four part series of ‘Everything is a remix’ by Kirby Ferguson, would highly recommend, it’s a real eye opener.  Check it out here http://www.everythingisaremix.info/watch-the-series/.

It explains the ‘remix’ culture we live in today, copy -> transform -> combine, the three steps to creation.  Listen to Led Zeppelin, watch George Lucas’ Star Wars, or the contemporary remix king Tarantino’s Kill Bill and you can see ‘creation from influence’ being taken to the literal extremes, but still, you cannot deny the grandeur of these works.  I do thoroughly recommend you watch the video though, if there was any doubt before, after watching – it will make you say remix culture is a big positive!

Heavily influenced by Kirby Ferguson & the content of his videos 😉
