    Setting the Mood

    Bow chicka wow wow...


    Okay, so not that kind of setting the mood. Rather, how do you set the mood for watching movies? Do you like the lights on or off? Perhaps you like a big bowl of popcorn? Are you one of those talking Nazi's that will kick someone out of the room if they talk? If there a time of the day where you prefer watching movies whether it's for the right lighting or amount of distractions?

    Discuss all of your environment must haves!

    - At night - 99% of the time I can only watch a film at night given that I'm either at work, or sleeping in. I find it to be a good way of chilling out and drawing the day to a close
    - Gotta watch it on the biggest screen in the house, hence why I don't download movies, laptop screen too small.
    - lie stretched out on the sofa closest to the TV
    - less light the better to create that cinema atmosphere - in the case of watching anything potentially scary, lights off completely
    - bowl of something sweet to snack on
    - If I happen to be watching something violent, something with bad language, something with the slight chance of nudity (you know, anything good!), I offer my room to my mom for a few hours so she can watch some soap opreas in peace on my TV. I wouldn't enjoy the film as much with her disapproving comments in the background.

    I started watching DVD's on my Computer which I didn't mind. You can't beat sitting in your basement on a chair, watching an awesome movie with some popcorn.

    I really don't have any must haves. Only thing I prefer is to watch a movie in blu ray if it's released on it. And in regards to the people talking thing, I don't mind if you whisper, but just don't constantly have a conversation while a movie is playing. If you want to discuss you plans for tomorrow, go in another room or something. Just annoying when you have to rewind something because you couldn't hear it.

    I like to watch horror movies in the dark and on gritty old VHS tapes if entirely possible. They just feel better that way. I have a projector for Blu Ray movies, which is how I prefer to watch them. I also normally have some movie playing in the background while I'm working or on my computer, which is pretty much all the time.

    Re: Setting the Mood

    As for my 'rituals' here is what I do pretty much every single viewing I do.
    1. HDMI cable to the big screen
    2. Turn off the lights except for my sky lights above the TV, dim those to preferred lighting.
    3. Prop back on the sofa
    Must haves:
    • something to munch on
    • something to drink
    • lighting remote, well remotes in general (who wants to get up during a movie anyways)
    • Generally don't like people around (except maybe my daughter and misses) (the misses knows not to mutter a word or she goes out of the room in a hurry)
    As for the preferred time it would most definitely have to be at night or during the early hours of the morning.

As you know I'm apart of a shit load of forums and one of them seems to be in chaos. You have a Owner who barely is on the site these days, and only made one Global Moderator for the forum. It seems the chaos has gotten so bad members mostly younger members are using racist and gay slurs to their answers in debate. Legit I saw three threads where members put f***** and that's it. Yesterday I rage over these members I basically told them to stop that, it gives no value to what you're saying in a post. No one will take you seriously if you using such words just to say it. Shoot even the sb is a jungle full of chaos with the same situation. I came to the G-Mod and said hey you're in charge of this forum, you let shit go under the rug why did I say that? Well last week a member came into my LD for Impact and spoiled the whole show for most people. I went in the sb for the forum and said hey man this guy is fucking up the experience for people in the sb can you do something. He pretty much knew this member and told me he's done this before so I'm thinking it took me to say something for you to act? Also a month ago I had a problem with a member named Nero where randomly out of no where he puts racist pics of Hispanic doing crimes, eating Tacos etc! I was like one I never talked about this guy the purpose of this. Again this G-Mod knew about his antics as well as Puls3 the Admin. A month before this I told the Admin he was a problem putting down new members left and right. Thank God I screencaped his actions and he hasn't been there since. Okay now back to the Global Mod I took it twitter and told the guy straight up you don't act because you love the slurping of your dick from members. He's doesn't want to mend fences pretty much and besides setting up a league for the forum for WWE 2k14 he does nothing for the forum. Now I want to talk to Puls3 personally because his rules are being broken left and right and his staff in charge is doing nothing by joining in the fun. I have a plan to get two or three other staff members who I think will be fair and firm when needed should I talk to him. I know I'm taking it seriously but I love this forum like I love this forum and I don't want it to be spoiled like Milk you feel me? Also on twitter and on the forum a bunch of little kids came to box with me when I was speaking my mind and I told them grow some hair on your chest before talking to me lol
