From the Bed Intruder to Damn Daniel internet popularity can be determined by how many times something has been remixed. This Prezi will look at the popularity of remixing Game of Thrones and the many different ways it has been done.

  1. Remixing pop-culture is always a good way to grab an audience’s attention. You used a lot of links which is really good, but almost all of them are Game of Thrones related. Remix culture is a massive and broad so having a lot of diversity with your links would’ve improved your post a lot. May I suggest SmoothMcGroove? He is a youtuber that does acapella arrangements of gaming music.

  2. If a popular TV show or song gets remixed then you automatically know that its more than likely really good or really bad. I really enjoyed your blog post and prezi, the way that it was written is very engaging for the audience and made me want to research more remixes of Game of Thrones. Which you have kindly supplied various other examples which I believe is a very good tactic in order to keep your audience engaged. The only thing that I could suggest would be proof reading your work before publishing so that the post and prezi flows better ๐Ÿ™‚ I look forward to more of your posts ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  3. As remix is a huge topic in and of itself, I thought it was extremely useful for explanations sake that you chose to focus on one idea to show the scope that remix can have. Remix culture is highly dynamic in its nature and I think you provide good context with the other examples in your attached blog. I wasn’t able to watch the video’s in your Prezi so that might need to be reworked, then again it may be my digital illiteracy. What made you choose Game of Thrones as your case study? Here is a link to the 8 best mix ups should you be interested: http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2014/09/8-funny-makeovers-for-game-of-thrones-credits.html

  4. Hey Brooke!
    Your blog post on remixes and remix culture was absolutely hilarious and I loved it! It was such a different and refreshing take on how anything can be made into a remix, and also I really liked the clips you chose on Game of Thrones. Your Prezi was also really short and concise, which grabbed my attention immediately. Game of Thrones is only one in a million, I guess we could say, on how anything can be made into a remix. I myself used ‘Pride and Prejudice’, but overall it was a great blog post!
