good day

up until about 10 minutes ago this was going to be a review of the girl with the dragon tattoo, but now its a blog about what a good day i'm having. when i say a good day i mean a better than average day, take into mind that my average day composes of me dragging myself awake with 2-4 hours of sleep, slumping to school and stressing about the work i haven't done and the effect ifs having on my later life, then going home and enjoying the contents of my youtube subscription box. however last night i went to bed at 11 meaning i had about 9 hours sleep, which is a good start. but what i think really changed my day around is this morning i thought to myself 'today feels like a good day, today rob your going to have a good day'. and i know it sound sort of cliche or hollywood but somehow this thought has positivly effect my mood today, i'm not one to belive in destiny or anything like that, i'm simply saying i tricked myself into having a good day. today has been just as stressful as any other just i'm in a better mood. and i always have a sort of sunny dissposition in my world which is 90% shit, but today my world of shit just isn't effecting me and its not going to. some thought puts me at the popular nerfighter slang of DFTBA meaning don't forget to be awesome which is a fantastic saying and i wish that rather that it just being a saying i know and sometimes say a way of life i subscribe to. 'tomorrow rob your going to have have an awesome day and your going to DFTBA'. i'm still only about halfway through today i still have tonight to do, which is probably going to be my usuall world of shit but as i said its not going to affect me, but better than average day is staying better than average. DFTBA

quick thoughts: music in films/tv

i don't like non-diegetic sound, that is sound that is being played but is not from inside the film itself. an easier way to explain is that diegetic sound is made from inside the film say a band playing on screen or a radio. but although i don't like it there are fantastic examples. you'd think I'd point out something with an amazing soundtrack, like say anything by Hans zimmer including inception, but no. in fact i believe the best use a non diegetic music is in my name is earl. this isn't because of the quality of the music, although fantastic, its about the timing and my name is earl does it perfectly. another example is the original Italian job, most of the film has no music but when there is its perfect. but according to my special edition making of the reason Italian job has no music is because they spent all the budget on making the film and had none left for sound. so in my opinion no non-diegetic unless its really good.

hot chocolate

as you should know if you're a friend or if you're a reader of this blog you'll know that i am some what of a hot chocolate connoisseur as so i am going to provide you with a few tips. now my favorite hot chocolate exists in the instant form where you add boiling water and milk if needed, all these tips will relate to that.
1. when pouring the water pour it so that it is just above the level of the powder and mix it together well at this point, this will make a thick gloop but will help it dissolve better meaning a more chocolaty drink and no powder left at the end
2. after adding the rest of the water keep mixing until there is no gloop left stuck to the spoon, if there is no gloop on the spoon there will be no gloop inside the mug
3. always taste the hot chocolate before adding milk or sugar, sometimes it tastes better without them.
