Listen

Rant 1 of 3.

Screens. I have come to develop a love-hate relationship with them. Everything broadcasted on screens demands your attention far too much.

Movies, TV shows, advertisements, and even the news pieces all have background music, jingles, people talking, good looking people, transition graphics, display graphics, and extra videos to supplement the topic being addressed. If the could you spray you with cologne through the screen or waft some fragrances over, they would. Because more than one of your senses must be utilized to make the experience more “fulfilling”. As a result, all the senses are overburdened.

I’m so SICK of multitasking and people heroing multitasking. All it really means, even in Psychology, is that your attention is divided and not a single thing you’re doing is being done fruitfully.

What happened to simply reading or listening? I’ve spent days doing nothing but read. Or lay in bed listening to podcasts. Look out of the car window and actually notice the colours of the sky, clothes of the people and even the shapes of tree trunks. Or wake p and lie staring at the cracks in the ceilings. My drawings in school were always different because they stemmed from real memories, not a book. My essays were different because I used anecdotes from books I’d read.

Music? You can listen to in the background, drive AND hold proper conversations with co-passengers. Or do Math. Reading or Podcasts occupy only one sense and all of your mind, but completely. You literally CANNOT multitask. Bring back single-tasking. Give yourself a break.

    1. Hey there! It’s one part of three rants that are linked by a common thread. But thank you for your honest opinion. I was concentrating on the concept of the piece more than the words I used. πŸ™‚

      2. Please don’t presume I wrote “whatever that came to mind”. I believe I give enough thought and time to rationalize before I create my opinion. But yes, each rant is different in it’s own way. I’m glad you agree on the multitasking bit! πŸ™‚
