Inspiring Movie Soundtracks To Listen to Over And Over Again

There are movies and there are cinematographic masterpieces that stick with us over the years. But what makes the difference? Well, it may be the actors or the action, but most of the times it’s the soundtrack. There are soundtracks that are so inspiring and amazing that we can’t simply forget. And they remain forever bound to our soul, sticking with us over decades.

But let’s see the name of these timeless movie soundtracks that inspired generations and give you goosebumps every time you hear them.

Time – Hans Zimmer – Inception

If this doesn’t inspire you, then nothing will! The song is completely orchestral and is fantastic when you’re blocked. It inspires creativity and transcends you in a state of mind that is difficult to explain.

The song is inspirational on its own, but when paired with the timeless between the two protagonists it’s absolutely life-changing.

The Gladiator

Didn’t you cry at the end? If you did it’s no shame in recognizing it. The amazing soundtrack that wakes even the deepest buried emotions paired with the sad action are bound to make you cry rivers or bitter tears.

The Gladiator hit us with 3 amazing soundtracks that even today remain the mark of a great movie (“Honor Him”, “Elysium”, and “Now We Are Free”).

Batman Begins – Hans Zimmer

Hans Zimmer is wildly known as one of the most innovative composers in Hollywood and the fact that you can find his music in so many great movies say quite a lot. The entire soundtrack in Batman Begins is absolutely amazing and, even though the movie is not that old yet, the soundtrack is already a timeless masterpiece.

In the end, I’ll let you in a small secret: all these soundtracks are great to listen to when you’re lacking inspiration.

Pokemon Go tips and tricks

Once again, the world of Pokemons sweeps us off our feet. Well, this applies if you were old enough to catch the Pokemon Cards frenzy. If not, Pokemon Go and what you’ve heard from your parents or older siblings should be enough to convince you that this is a great world and you should try our best to catch’em all.

Basically, Pokemon Go, is a virtual reality game that is layered over our real world using augmented reality. Users use their phones to find Pokemons wherever they go. Once caught, creatures need to be trained by either fighting other users or gathering points. The logic is simple, but the simple fact that it got everyone out, looking for Pokemons is a real miracle.

Still, even though the game sounds simple enough, there are a few tricks and tips that might come in handy (especially if you’re a beginner). So, let’s take a look at how you can improve your game and gameplay with just a few tricks.

Keep the app up to date

We know, it’s a given. However, many like to block update notifications and they forget to look for one from time to time. Developers at Poekmon Go are constantly working on improving the app, adding new features, and making it more stable. So, just for this, you should leave the notifications on.

Get Pikachu

Pikachu is one of the most desired Pokemons out there, but it’s also one of the rarest. Still, you can get it as your starter Pokemon if you refuse the first 3 that come your way. To refuse the first 3 that show up (Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle) simply walk away from them. Once you refused each of the 3 separately, they will show up again. Continue to walk away several times until you find Pikachu.

Don’t stay in one place

The map is divided into sectors and each sector has its Pokemons. So, if you feel you have too many of a certain kind, diversify the location. Walk in different areas of the city and look for different Pokemons in various neighborhoods.

Catching a Pokemon

Not all Pokemons are easy to catch and, as you advance, you’ll find some that require more than one or two Pokeballs. To make sure you’re not wasting your Pokeballs, keep close attention to the ring you use as a pointer. If it’s green then the catch will be easy. However, if it’s yellow or red, you might need more balls.

Doubles are good

If you find two or three Zubats, don’t be afraid to actually catch them all. Doubles are useful in Pokemon Go as you can trade them for candy. These are great for the Pokemons you decide to keep as you can help them evolve. To transfer one Pokemon out, simply click the Pokeball icon, select Pokemon and then Transfer.

Minecraft

Who hasn’t heard of Minecraft? You don’t even have to be a gamer to know that Minecraft is a huge deal in the world of video games. The game won numerous awards and it has over 40 million unique players all over the world. Even more, even though the original version was released in 2011, the game doesn’t seem to get old or boring.

The action

No, you won’t get to see amazing images and admire immersing visual effects that will leave you breathless. No, you won’t have to fight monsters and bosses that will make your palms sweat. So what’s so great about Minecraft?

Well, the game is based on a never-ending world where you get to build, explore, gather resources, and even fight enemies. Yet, everything happens in a blocky world, where everything looks pixelated and square. Why is the game so popular then? Well, the action is addictive because it allows you access to unlimited resources and challenges your mental capabilities and level of creativity. Minecraft lets you play God and create your own block-shaped world while developing skills like organization, patience, and goal achievement.

Game modes

To spice up the action, there are several modes that will give you a different perspective of the game. Thus there are:

  • Survival mode – here you get to dodge off enemies and fight monsters for resources. You also have to build shelters when the action requires it and craft armors and other battle tools.
  • Adventure mode- this mode was introduced in version 1.3 and is somehow similar with the survival mode. The difference is that you will be exploring maps created by other users with restrictions implemented by the creator.
  • Hardcore mode – the game is locked at the most difficult settings so this mode is for experienced users only
  • Creative mode – It’s a mode that allows players to explore the game without suffering damage. It’s just about creation here.
  • Spectator mode – you can admire other worlds without interacting.

Minecraft as a Multiplayer Game

You couldn’t expect such a popular game to not have a multiplayer mode! There are servers that host worlds where multiple players can work together. Servers can be hosted by individual players or organizations and operators have a role in guiding the game. Of course, you can create unique rules on a server-hosted world. You can even arrange PvP combats.

In the end, Minecraft is one game that is here to last. It is an infinite world that offers an inexhaustible range of activities and resources.

The Hidden Meaning Behind The Blue Color

Usually colors in Koi fish are associated with the two sexes and the power they represent. However the color blue in this composition has several meanings. Thus, a blue Koi tattoo can be associated with both feminine and masculine and can signify the power of reproduction.

In most cases however, the blue Koi is seen as a stage in fighting with the difficulties of life.
