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.

Ruggie For The Sleepy

01

A rug that won’t let you oversleep, sounds very interesting right?  So if you have any sleepy heads at home and have trouble getting up, you have to back this kick starter project and get one quickly.  Why?  because the sleeper needs to get up , step on the rug and won’t let you press the snooze button like other alarm clocks.  I like the motivation messages best !  One can also use the rug as a night light when you are up late at night trying to get a drink or to go to the bathroom.  So back this awesome kick starter if you want to get one of this awesome ruggie in September 2016.  I loved kick starters and for only $79 USD , I think it’s a great way to support another person’s dream as well as having a cool gadget.

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.

Maximizing Your Amp Performance

 01

Since our store deal with some musical instruments, we are often asked how to maximize customer’s amp’s performance.  Seriously, we are no expert but we an do some  tube amp troubleshooting  for them and suggest some solutions.  We also armed ourselves with some knowledge by reading it up on the internet, that way we can always try and help and also not sound too ignorant.  But what we don’t understand is when the customer/s asked for advice but yet comes up with their own “possible” solution.  Some just don’t know when to leave it to the pros to help them, and as for those kind of customers there is really nothing much we can do to assist them.

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.

Changes With Your Netflix

0111

Yup ! some changes with Netflix and good ones it looks like from her to me.    For those who are using Netflix and loving it, I’m sure you would notice that selecting the movies or tv shows from Netflix can be a real pain.  If you feel that way, you will welcome the new change whereby , the thumbnails are bigger in its own section and it will instantly expand the movies and shows to see its details.  You also can get a short preview of what you are about to watch.  The design is supposed to be a lot sleeker as well as faster.

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!

Ninetendo Goes To Theme Park

cats

Yes, you heard right !  you may in the near future start playing with life size version of Mario Kart or more of those Nintendo games that you are so fond of but can only play in the Wii consoles and DS games.  Can you imagine having a Nintendo Land at Universal Studios !  woohoo!  I know my kid would love it.

So when will this happen , i hear you asking ?  soon i guess but they are still making plans and talking yet, so we will have to wait for further news.
