“Why should I challenge my brain?”, you ask. Well I believe there is a great need in this era for people to stretch the limits of the mind. Let me elaborate. Everywhere I look, I see people distracted by their tech devices. Whether it's smartphones, tablets, TV, hand-held games, or laptops, people are spending way too much time in front of screens. Most of the tasks done by these devices require little to no use of the brain. It does not take much exertion to binge watch videos, play mobile games, or scroll mindlessly through social media. Further more, these tasks eats away your time, shortens your attention span, damages your ability to focus, and hinders the use of your imagination. All these things can lead to a damaged, distracted, and fatigued brain. In this article, I will list four simple methods that anyone can use to actively use their minds to reach more potential. If your not already distracted, let's begin.
You may be familiar with EDM artists such as, Skrillex, Daft Punk, and Matthew Parker. But do you know Capital Kings? If not, you are missing out on some great music by talented artists. Capital Kings is made up by musicians Jon White and Cole Walowac. Jon is the lead vocalist while Cole provides the rap. The duo, from Washington D.C., got their break into music by remixing. They provided remixes for the legendary artist, tobyMac on his remix album “Dubbed & Frequed”. Through this connection Toby liked their style and signed them on his record label Gotee Records. They released their debut album titled “Capital Kings” in 2013. The album has ten songs and features collaborations from artists like Toby Mac, Britt Nicole, Royal Tailor, and Solomon Olds(aka Soul Glow Activatur). Their album is a mixture of dubstep, electronic pop, house, hip-hop, rap, and dance music.
Radio Free Roscoe is a comedy-drama series about four teens that run their own radio station. It aired on The N in America and on the Family Channel in Canada.The show is set in Toronto, Ontario in one of their suburbs. The characters: Lily Randall, Robbie McGrath, Ray Brennan, and Travis Strong attend the Henry Roscoe High School, were they also have a radio station. At the school's radio station, the students are not given ample freedom as to what to discuss on the air. Ray, Lily, and the others want to voice their opinions about important subjects without being censored or controlled. This leads them to start their own radio station. They find an abandoned warehouse where they set their radio station in. Lily, Ray, and Robbie, act as the DJs for Radio Free. While Travis works as the show's producer. In order to protect themselves from being discovered by the school, all four friends use nicknames to protect their identities. Robbie's is “Question Mark, Ray's is “Pronto, Travis's is “Smog”, and Lily's radio name is “Shady Lane”. As I have stated, they use their station as a way to voice their views and opinions about problems and controversies at the high school. They also play various music throughout the tenure.
The new trailer for Ghostbusters Afterlife has just dropped and it looks pretty interesting. The first I thing I noticed is the small town setting that the film is set in, considering that the first two films were set in New York City. I also noticed the new characters which include a mom and her two kids. One of which is Finn Wolfhard from Stranger Things (most of you know that by now). Also, the other sibling is McKenna Grace who plays his sister.
By now, you may of heard of the new Sonic the Hedgehog live action film, and didn't know what to think. This is the first live action film for the iconic character. Also, people were pretty upset at the design for Sonic, however the studio listened and gave him a facelift. But today, my concern is turning something as weird and quirky like Sonic into a real-life character.
Hello everyone. As I go about my daily living, I can't help but notice the amount of kids with smartphones and/or tablets. I have seen kids as young as two or three with a tech device in tow. Most of what I see them doing is watching a silly, nonessential cartoon, playing mobile games, and listening to songs.
