Printing Letterheads

 A customer walked into our store the other day looking for info for some  local letterhead printing  and thought we would could do it since we were a computer store but sorry to disappoint him.  But wait a minute, we did recommend a place where he could do some letterhead printing easily and fast.

We are like this information booth or store since we are right in the middle of Main Street and if you know about computers, I guess you have to know about everything since you are expected to be tech savvy.  We don’t mind it a bit but sometimes when it gets really busy at the store, we just can’t provide informative details and we feel really bad about it.

Street Percussion

Unlike the spouse, I’m not particularly interested in street music but when she saw some performing in the city last summer, she had to dragged us all to the waterfront to watch the performance by these street artistes.  I was very much intrigue by what they can do with just a tiny instrument and I was so impressed that I wanted an  exciting innovative percussion from guitar center  for myself.  I figured I could learn that too if these young guys can do it.

But I’m sure you know, it’s not as easy as I thought it was going to learn how to play a percussion, but I’m not giving up yet, I’ve decided to take up some lessons at a local studio and I’m pretty sure I’m going to be able to play one soon.

MSI R9 290X Lightning Graphics Card

This graphic card will cost me at least $1000 after shipping and it was many years ago, and I was still gaming big time, I wouldn’t hesitate to get it and go ga-ga over it.  But at this point of time, since I’m more into console games, I just read over the review and check it out randomly.  But of course, there are still very many gamers out there, so this is what I think about it.

The Graphic card looks pretty cool and reminds me of a sport car, The Thermal design is said to dissipate heat more efficiently and it has an extreme cooling system thru’ Liquid Nitrogen.    Since it has a 12 GPU, one can expect the most stable voltages to the GPU when you are pushing it to benchmark it.   I also read that the  MSI R9 290X Lightning is built to withstand sub-zero freezing or extreme temperatures.

I’m sure it’s a darn good graphics card and at the momenet, you can’t get it oin Newegg because it’s out of stock.

Boosting Pedal

Shopping for a boosting pedal and was recommended the  mxr mc401 at guitar center  .  I wanted something affordable and most people found that having this boosting pedal makes a great difference in the music one plays. I’ve always read that the Custom Audio Electronics–Bradshaw is a trusted brand by the pros, therefore, it would be really helpful to have one to make good music. Much clarity is given out with this boosting pedal and after checking with friends who already have them, I’m going to order it for myself.

Acoustic Electric Bass

I haven’t played on an acoustic electric bass before but I know that one can get a  acoustic bass at wwbw  as a buddy of mine bought one. I would love to have one for myself even though I don’t play the bass that well but it’s a pretty cool gadget to get for my collection.  A translucent black color one is what I am looking for but a wee bit pricey for my liking right now.  Maybe, I can get it for Easter or my next birthday, I shall hint to the spouse and tell her where she can get it online as they ship to Canada as well.

South Park The Stick Of Truth

Bought the game new from EB game at $65, figured I would like it since I love the South Park for ages now.  Figured when I am done with it I will resell it for $45 since it is a fairly short game.   This is a role playing game as per the show but some of the stuff on the game is not fit for kids to see – hahah!  but it is all for the fun of the show of course.  This is what they called a no – brainer game.

Gravity

George Clooney and Sandra Bullock in this movie would make anyone think that this has got to be a great movie but mannn! I was disappointed !  besides showing how she was stuck in limbo and in space, there was very little action to be honest.  So this movie as per my humble opinion is over hyped!  A real waste of my 91 mins of my life !  DISAPPOINTED!

iVisor Glass

If you already paid so much for your iPhone 5  or iPhone 5s, you definitely want to pay another $50 for this iVisor Glass to protect your iPhone – don’t you agree?  It’s easy to install and I’ll say a must have – bubble proof, scratch proof and shock proof as well.  You can get it at any Apple store – available for ipad mini and ipads as well.

DJ Controller

 

Checking out this  novation twitch case  for a customer and wanted to make sure that I’m getting the right thing in for him.  Sometimes, when a customer wants you to order something special, I have to go to my trusty music website and get all the information for him before ordering.  This is for mixing his tracks but it also have DJ software for his DJ work that he needs to work on. The price was right, they also provide extended warranty, so it’s great for both the customer and myself, in case something gets broken in the meantime.  I love getting extended warranties especially if it isn’t for myself but for someone else, that way, I’m not liable when the unit doesn’t work for any reason.

Skylander Swap Force

The Skylander game itself is definitely making us all broke.  The 100s of figurine one has to buy just to play the game.  And it’s not only the Skylander’s figurines, you have to buy the swap force figurines if you want to play the swap force game and of course the disk/game itself to play the game.  So all in all, it’s not cheap to start playing the Skylander game at all.

Kids loved it – and don’t get me wrong, we all buy them for our kids at about $10 per figurine and parents think nothing of adding to the collection at all just to keep the kids happy.  But mannnn… !  it really can cost a lot of money.  It’s crazy!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s an awesome game, although I’m not into it but if you haven’t started – DON’T START!  I can just feel my money flying away literally.

Gaming Snacks

The spouse handed me some  b17  aka apricot kennels for snacks when I am gaming and took away all my junk food and guess what ?  I fell in love with this snack.  It is pretty good and is said to be very good for health.   It has natural enzymes and B15 in it as well, so if you are looking for some healthy gaming snacks, check out these apricots as well as apricot kennels, they may just surprise you.

Captain Phillips

Love the movie and Tom Hanks did an absolutely great portray of the real Captain Richard Phillips.  Based on a true account of the hijacking of a cargo ship – the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama.  A group of Somali pirates hijacked the cargo ship and demanded ransom for the captain after their failed attempt to hijack the cargo ship.

A real account and filmed so closed to the true story, one must not miss this movie.
