Performing With a Different Touch

I love music but until now I am still mystified with how violin and its cousin cello creates a mesmerizing sound with the use of a tiny string and stroke back and forth. And what really keeps my attention with its mystery is who first discover it and if the discovery was carefully planned or just merely accidental while doing something else? Right now, I don’t or should I say haven’t made a research yet of its origin and household chores and a very active toddler in the house prevents me from going farther to check it out.

I believe the bow has come a long way since its discovery and there are different styles and types that my untrained eyes have seen already. And I noticed that the violin bow at musicians friend comes in a variety of shape and kind, that you have an endless options to choice from. But at the back of my mind, I believe that every musician have their own preference of the instrument and its accessories that they are going to use when they perform. That it will become a different touch when using a different or a new instrument.

Affordable Audio Interface Set-up

It has been awhile already when hubby started knocking on me that he’s going to buy a speaker or an entertainment system for the 40-inch LED TV in the living room. Although I am not against what he wants for the audio components and its corresponding accessories but we have to postpone it for another day since we have other needs that has high priority at that time. And now that we don’t only have the funds for it, we also are no longer burdened with other projects recently.

So I am just hoping that he will be able to get a guaranteed affordable price and perhaps even free shipping just like the usb monitor from musicians friend. It is not only a low cost audio interface setup but it is also somewhat a well planned audio system that has the capability for plug and play configuration. And that’s possibly the great feature that I’m going to considerably appreciate since I am not a techy person. User-friendly equipment and gadgets is what I prefer to have so I won’t be straining myself of figuring out how to make it play.

Wearing a Tuxedo Shirt

It was only very recently, I think a few weeks back, that I have attended a formal gathering hosted by hubby’s company for their annual get together. Hubby did not attend as he doesn’t have any formal suit but more so is that he doesn’t like wearing a tuxedo shirt. In
fact, he doesn’t have one at all in his closet and even just a formal long sleeve could not be found anywhere inside. He only has short sleeve, casual and polo shirts to wear during formal meetings.

And if I remember it correctly, the only time I saw him wearing a formalwear was during our wedding and that’s almost five years ago. But in fairness for hubby, he was actually babysitting our son at that time since kids are not allowed in the gathering so he has an excuse not to attend.

Modern Human Hair Extensions

The advancement in technology is not only limited to what you can see in the internet and tech gadgets but also in various products that we can see or use in our daily lifestyle. One very particular is the women’s outlook in fashion and movie industries where one day you see them with shoulder’s length hair and the next in a different color and already dangling freely. And today, it is but ordinary and common to see teenagers and young ladies displaying modern and advanced human hair extensions without noticing that it is man-made.

The technological advancement has something to do with the development of human hair as lightweight and easy to use. It can easily add length and volume in your own hair so quickly without any headache at all. You don’t have to worry that it might accidentally fall off as it can be secured with pressure sensitive clip. And since it is human hair, it is hard to determine that it is manufactured as it can be attached and taken out in minutes. It can also be straightened or curled as you wish it would. And one good thing about it is that it can last longer for you to re-use in latter days.

Building Your Dream Set

Many have said that in the modern music industry, gone where the days when stereotype are the norms and standards when it comes to conventional and electronic drums and percussion. What I am referring to is the standard five-piece configuration set of drums and its accessories which somehow is the most popular there is. At least that’s what hubby’s friend told us during one of our conversation in one of our get-together when we have our vacation two months ago.

And I am not familiar with it also that all I have to do is to agree considering that what’s important for me is to listen to music which matters most. Also according to him, some shops are customizing the kind of musical equipment according to the type and style of your choice and mostly have wide selection of either virtual drums or your conventional percussion. He also told us that there are even international companies that will let you build your own dream set and the good thing is that they will also deliver it right at your doorstep at no extra cost.
