Articles on Entertaiment
Anything affording pleasure or diversion; a diverting amusement: A crossword puzzle provides entertainment for many.
Entertaiment can be a private, one-on-one activity such as choosing your own entertainment from a large library of pre-recorded products, to a dinner party arranged for two, to an elaborate ball in which the music, dance and food are all designed for enjoyment by an audience. It can also be a collective activity such as the annual awards ceremonies which are often watched on TV by thousands of people around the world.
Entertainment is a dynamic, ever changing medium that has the ability to inspire creative remix in other media such as music, film and video games. This has been demonstrated by the way stories such as Scheherazade, an ancient tale in the professional storytelling tradition, have inspired a number of orchestral works, film adaptations and innovative video games.
