Drummer’s Shoes

00

Easter gift for the spouse who plays the drum like he is a genius or a true drummer but little does he knows that it is so loud and disturbing at times.  But in any relationship , you just need to learn to live with it and since he is into drumming a lot lately , a  db shoes  for Easter is what I got for him.  I didn’t know that they had drummer shoes until he told me about it.  But I read that all professional players has one of these because you can feel the pedal better and thus control your pedals for maximum sound on your drums.  Interesting but I guess only those who loves playing on the drum would know that and I’m glad I was told about it by the spouse.

LaunchPad Mini

00

Making music has never been easier with the   launchpad mini  on your PC or even your iPad and Mac .   Now normally folks say that if you can use it on your PC, you can’t use it on your iPad or Mac, but after reading up on the information on what it can do, I might just buy it for my kids.  And because it is so small, you can travel with it and use it anywhere and anytime.  And since it is fairly affordable, I might get 2 , one for each kid.

Get Unstuck During Winter

01

If you are living in Canada like I am , you will know that winter can be really wicked at times and having said that, it can get dangerous if you are stuck in the cold because you can plow yourself out from the snow in time.   I saw a demo on youtube called the –  Trac- Grabber – a traction device for all kinds of vehicle.  Only $49 for 2 of it for each tire , less than $100 USD to get them for all 4 tires in case you get stuck in the snow in a remote area and you never had to pay someone to plow you out either from your driveway.  I just ordered 2 boxes because you never know during winter , how bad it will get.  Free shipping from Amazon too.

HoverBoard

2

Everyone wants a hoverboard for Christmas , so I was told in USA after watching Casey Neistat on youtube go on his hoverboard everytime he had to go somewhere.  So what is a hoverboard ?  How much is it and does it really work , I hear you asking.  Some places are selling it for as much as $600 in USA but I know that you can get them from China , the exact same thing for only $300 USD.

But I just read a few minutes ago that the cops in New York city has confirmed that HoverBoards are illegal to have it on the roads in New York City.  So dear Casey isn’t gonna be able to use it on the road no more.  But not to worry he has another skateboard that he uses but that would be for another day and another story.  Note that if you are caught riding it in New York, you can be fined up to $500 USD, also in UK.   But thus far in Canada, no problems and in a small town like ours, I doubt there will be a law about it.  So Canadians buy away for Christmas.

But how easy is it to maneuver this beast?   I think it takes some practice and of course you may scrap your knees and fall flat on your face a few times but overall, I don’t think it should be really hard to learn to use it especially if you were a young person.

Forget pedaling or skating to work or class, there’s a new transportation king in town (and no, it’s not a Segway). If you’ve been out and about in the past months, there’s no doubt you’ve seen these self-balancing scooters popping up like crazy—and the MonoRover R2 is the creme-of-the-crop. Equipped with sensors that detect even the slightest of movements in your feet and ankles, it’s intuitive, safe, and lightweight. This hot two-wheeler can be yours absolutely free of charge–and it’s as easy as a simple entry!

Vlogging & Recording

03

Vlogging is the in thing these days and I myself have been really addicted with watching vlogs on youtube and I’ve seen youtubers use the  sennheiser ew 112-p g3  for their recording purposes and really envy them for spending so much on professional equipment for their passion.  Sure vlogging can make you some money but not all vloggers make big money , yet they want to do it well and produce quality vlogs.  Of course, not everyone would be using such professional microphones for their recording but I think I too would invest in it because it’s light and handy.

Geeks Into Trumpets

book

Yes, lately I’ve noticed that most of my geeky and nerdy friends are quite talented.  Not only are they great with the computer, coding and on top of all new gadgets and games , they are musically inclined too.  I had the pleasure of being entertained by a group of nerdy friends who play the trumpet , of course they didn’t use  trumpets for professionals  but I think they are the above average trumpet players.  You will be surprised with some geeky friends of yours because their talents are not limited to just nerdy and geeky stuff as I found out.

Lily Camera

Very interesting right?  and if you order before June 15th, you can get it for only $499 and you will only get it in  February 2016, when they start shipping them out.  So what does the Lily Camera do you asked ?  To put it simply, it’s a flying camera.  But how does it work without a remote control you asked?  I was curious too – so I went on to read it a bit more.

So I found out that it follows the wearer’s bracelet – so if you are wearing the bracelet for the drone – Lily in this case, it will follow you wherever you go.  Pretty simple eh ?  especially great for those who wants to shoot outdoor activities or even a promotional video for a canoeing trip or rafting trip since it is waterproof , so I read.

book

As you can see here, the tracker or a GPS in the bracelet is worn by whoever is controlling Lily and it just follows you wherever you go and video tape you immediately.  Your kids can use it, you can use it and professionals can use it as well.  But don’t wait to long to pre-order yours if you are into this video taping thing or an outdoor person , because after the pre-order time is up , it will be going for $999.

Someone asked me if they can buy a Lily and spy on their neighbor or boyfriends?  hahah!  that’s funny !  but truthfully, you have to be there to be filmed because you need to be wearing that GPS bracelet remember?  so yes, it’s very legal according to the inventor of Lily.

Father’s Day Gift

June 21 is Father’s Day this year , and instead of waiting for the last minute to get something for the spouse, this year, I’ve decided that we want to get something special for the spouse.  To tell him how important he is to us and that we appreciate everything he has done for us thus far.

cats

We know that he would love anyone of this  Epi  limited editions, and since it’s 40% off right now, we are getting one for him for Father’s Day.  I’m sure he would feel really bad , he didn’t get a lot for me for Mother’s day now . haha!  I will be recording his reaction when he opens up his Father’s day present this year and put it up for viewing .  Yes, I’m “evil” hhahaha!
