Guitar Shopping

 After reading many  reviews  about various guitars that I had been eyeing on for Christmas , I’ve decided to get it before the busy season.  Most times when I am spending this much money, I always read what others have to say about it before purchasing it, of course, it is nice to be able to test it out first but it’s not always possible.  Therefore, I only buy my guitars at the most reliable and reputable places, making sure that all the reviews I’ve read are genuine and not just put up by the company.  Of course, a good return policy is a plus and free shipping is also a bonus.  But above all, a good reputation and word of mouth of a good place to buy my guitars from is most important.  So if you are buying anything online, make sure you check out the reviews before buying.

An Anime Wedding

cats

Customer came in and invited us for his wedding in the fall but his is a dress up kind of wedding, an anime or manga wedding.  First of its kind around here but that should be really interesting.  Guests are encourage to dress up too but I’m sure these gold wedding rings  are the ones they are using and not some anime rings.

There are a lot of people that are into dressing up from being a Mario character to Batman and some are into Manga are not only dressing up like their favorite Manga character during comic con but on Halloween as well.  So it really didn’t come as a surprise to me when this particular customer wanted a anime wedding.

Apple iPhone 6

cats

The iPhone 6 is being released early here in Canada but people around the world had already started lining up for them I heard since last week.  In Australia, a girl was kicked out of her line by a cop before she could get her hands on it and she started bawling her eyes out.   As much as I loved gadgets, you ain’t going to find me lining up for an iPhone 6 anytime soon.

So what is new in iPhone 6 as compare to iPhone 5S?  First, from what I’ve seen, the iPhone 6 looks a lot thinner , meaning that it may be lighter overall.  A check on Roger’s Phone shop, you can purchase it for about $969.00 + tax if you don’t want a contract.  If you want a 2 years contract, you will need to pay at least $485+ tax.

I also know that they have a better camera in it , now you can use y our iPhone to take wide angle pictures, better stabilization.  And for those who loved to take selfies , this is the phone for you, because it can take 10 shots in a sec.  It also has an A8 chip thus saving more battery life in the new gadget.  There is a gig of ram in the new iPhone 6 and a better processor too.  And with the new iPhone 6, you will be able to watch your movies or youtube alot more smoothly.  There is also the Apple Pay but limited access at the moment.

While some people may be vying and dying for an iPhone 6 , I’ll wait for another few years when someone comes  into my store and sell it to me for cheap.

Blended

cats

With Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, how can one miss this movie right?  Destined to be together they were not.  Two ended on a blind date that didn’t turn up well and they thought they would never meet each other again but fate had it otherwise of course.  And instead ended up with a holiday together with their entire family.  While Drew Barrymore has all boys , Adam Sandler has all girls with him.  Well, you can imagine how the movie played out right.  But it’s definitely a great family movie and one to watch for sure.

Used Guitars

 We don’t have a lot of variety of used guitars at our store right at this moment but you can find more on my favorite online store.  They have quite a few good ones and I liked their prices as well as the fact that they ship both in USA and Canada.   Learn more about us at MusiciansFriend.com  as they advertised on their website, but they have been around for a long time, so I go there to check out stuff for my customers who are looking for things that I don’t casrry myself at my store.

M 15 scarey looking promotional items came in today and this was one of them.  It is huge!!  and we don’t even know where we are going to put this thing.   I guess for now, it’s just gonna sit in front of the store and scare some little kids when they come into the store.

Wedding In July

A wedding in July only means that I have to dress up in a tux.  But I figured since I won’t be wearing it as often, I can actually buy them from  here  as they are a lot cheaper than renting them from the town bridal store.   Unbelievable but it is true, so I figured I should share this with all you geeks out there looking for a decent set of tux to attend weddings or proms or whatever functions for a reasonable price here.

Shipping is free if you spend more than $75 and kids suit starts from $39 , you definitely cannot beat that price. If you are not particularly fussy, you can get some decent looking suit for under $100.  So definitely check this online place out first before letting the spouse make you spend a lot of money on something you are probably going to wear only once.

Furniture For Tablets

cats

This is my perfect furniture to hold my tablet while I’m watching tv and doing some craft work or playing a game and need to go on the internet to look for info for my game.   This is called the Toi Table  by Salvatore Indriolo but at € 610,00 – I think I might have to look for another alternative or make one myself.

Joe

cats

Nicolas Cage is portrayed as the ex-con who meets a 15 yrs old boy and tries to help him.  Although Nicolas Cage is a grouchy, weird and violent man in this movie, he is not as bad as the 15 yrs old boy’s father who beats him around and tries to pimp his daughter out for a few bucks.

The movie is quite messed up but I know a lot of families in the West are this way.  Very sad but it’s stuff that you hope ain’t true in the real world.

MLB14 The Show

cats

Baseball Fans would be thrilled to know that they can now buy the MLB 14 The show at any retailer shop right now.  After some delay, I’m sure you would love to get your hands on it.

The PlayStation 4 version delivers new details for stadiums, lighting, players, and textures. The lighting effects go a long way in upping the realism. The strange, unmoving player hair pulls it back a little.  New features dramatically cut down the time it takes to complete a game, allowing players to get deeper into seasons

Monuments Men

cats

The Monuments Men will be on DVD in a few weeks, I just got a preview of it and since it was based on a true story – or history I may add, the spouse was quite interested in watching it.

George Clooney, Matt Damon and Bill Murray , all the good actors are in this movie, so you can’t really go wrong with this movie.  But having watched this movie, I have to point out that some parts of the movie doesn’t seems correct, like the gold that was recovered at the end of the movie.  From what I’ve read many years ago, the gold and silver?  were recovered under the sea – in a sunken submarine?

Basically, one should just watch the movie for amusement and not for its historical value.

Batman: Arkham Origins – Cold, Cold Heart DLC

cat

This is the first major DLC pack for Batman: Arkham Origins, Cold, Cold Heart introduces the chillilling Mr. Freeze into this Batman origin story. Batman has access to a new X.C. suit to deal with the icy weapons and obstacles created by Freeze’s minions.

Quite popular and everyone seems to want a copy of it from our town, I figured it is because it isn’t as violent as some of the games we have here.  The story was what was expected of any Batman game, I really didn’t find it that spectacular but kids of all ages can play with an adult on this game.  So it is a great family game.
