Article 72 – Current affairs

I said there would be no more articles on The EssWhyDee Blog. I lied.

In light current affairs and going ons around the world, there was just too much happening for me to keep my silence.

Article 71 – The End of The EssWhyDee Blog

Writing this at 9,101 views.

This blog has seen many faces, heard many voices, has read many minds, smelt a plethora of fragrances (and odours), but it is time to move on and leave all of these ramblings behind.

I will be writing again, very soon. Come, July, all hell will break loose.

I had put a lot of time and dedication into this site, and to be honest, it is very difficult for me to just say it is the end, especially as I wanted to hit 100 articles. We are on #71. Continue reading “Article 71 – The End of The EssWhyDee Blog”

The Survey Results!

Hello there folks,

First of all I’d like to thank all 50 participants who took my survey which was posted on here, approximately one week ago.

I was looking out for prosody in TV adverts and was looking out for the amount of people that can associate brands with their respective company by just hearing a sound clip, that of a jingle, poem, a piece of music or just a voice-over commentary.

Here are the correct answers!

*Drum-roll please…* Continue reading “The Survey Results!”

How many brands can you identify? Please take my survey below


Spare a minute to take the survey below. I am researching prosody in advertising, which is “the patterning of sound” (Cook, 1992, p. 120). I am specifically looking at jingles and music in television advertising. Continue reading “How many brands can you identify? Please take my survey below”


Article 70 – The Barber Chronicles

Here’s a little true story for you.


So a few months back, I visited the barbers. A pretty normal thing to do.

There was an immensely long queue of people before me and so was there for a good couple of hours, pretty normal once again.

Yes, yes, yes. I know what you’re going to think. “what the hell? I remember this site from a long, long time ago, I forgot all about the wondrous writings and musings of such an incredibly inspiring and brilliant author.”

Okay, enough blowing my own trumpet.

I don’t write much during term times, and the fact that I have a few days to write up an assignment of which I have only written my name, (you dream of this life, I’m sure of it) I thought this would get my creative juices flowing once again. Win-win situation. Boom.

Anyway, I know a lot of my regular readers won’t find this article applicable due to residing in various other parts of the world, but bear (roar) with me on this one… Continue reading “Article 69 – An unusual UK General Election 2015 article”

Article 68 – Hello there


And he crawls back on the Reader as if he never even left.

Apologies for not posting as frequent as you’d hope.

I have been tied up (not literally) with Uni work and by the time I’m finished doing the compulsory work, I am exhausted and it leaves me no motivation to write more.

Anyway, in one of my courses, we are actually studying blog-writing. Continue reading “Article 68 – Hello there”


Article 67 – Giving 110% – Interpreted


There has always been this debate between physicists, mathematicians, philosophers and wizards on the expression “giving 110%” and whether it is possible.

Here, I will very briefly explain what it means and whether it is actually possible to give 110 %.

Giving 110% of presumably effort at something is what the expression is usually referred to in everyday conversation. Continue reading “Article 67 – Giving 110% – Interpreted”

Article 66 – My Thoughts on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge


Before we get started..

Disclaimer: Do not expect humour here.

I know I’m massively late on writing about something like this but I had to make sure that it was fully mainstream before I tackled it.

Let me give you guys a quick overview of what exactly this is.

Macmillan’s new campaign has truly gone viral with celebrities getting involved as well as your average Jack. The challenge is simple really. One person gets a bucket of ice-cold water poured onto them in exchange for a donation to charity and another records them and uploads the video to the net.
