Reading revisited

Hello there I'm Sam, 23, from Reading.I decided I'd sign up to Tumblr as it'll be a good way to store work I've done on here and my comedy ideas, which can be copyrighted so no one can nick them!

I try to take an interest in most things. It's great discovering new things like new comedians, music, films etc. Love comedy shows like Mock the week, Whose line is it anyway, The Ricky Gervais Show, Bo'Selecta, Family Guy, Live at the Apollo, Michael Mcintyre's Comedy Roadshow, QI, Have I Got News For You and many more. Support Reading FC, like watching football, wish I could play as well as the footballers themselves. I listen to music that I like the sound of, but usually listen to Rock or something that has a catchy beat to it. I like films such as Star Wars, the Dark Knight trilogy, the James Bond and Bourne films, Comedy films like Shaun of the dead, Hot Fuzz, The Hangover, Monty Python films, 21 Jump Street and many more.

Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever

Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.

Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.

Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.”

The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea. So relaxing is the tune, apparently, that people are being Rex advised against listening to it while driving.

The top 10 most relaxing tunes were: 1. Marconi Union - Weightless 2. Airstream - Electra 3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix) 4. Enya - Watermark 5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing 6. Barcelona - Please Don’t Go 7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8. AdelevSomeone Like You 9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull’aria 10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly

I was so relieved this wasn’t a trick. Very soothing.
