I have been spending most of my time after work doing yoga to prepare myself for the beach this summer and to make sure that I still have some form of exercise so that my body won’t gain unwanted flabs everywhere.
There are a lot of different kinds of yoga lately, and I think I’ve even seen one where the yogis are suspended in air doing stretches. It’s actually kind of fun to watch, but I prefer my vinyasa flow.
I’ve been looking for the best yoga bolsters for the longest time because every Wednesday, at 6pm, we do the fundamentals of yoga where we practice the poses that we do everyday repeatedly until we master it, and the blocks just won’t do for some poses.
Do you have any recommendations about yoga shops and the like? It would be greatly appreciated.
My sister wants to record some of her drum covers and to post it on youtube but our cameras for some reason have poor quality.
My friend Max who actually records videos and tracks for a living recommended me to get shure sm57s and to attach them to the bass drum and the tom toms so that the sound can be heard properly.
I’m still saving up so I can surprise my sister for christmas. I’m getting one microphone per tom, for the bass drum and for the snare.
I’m so excited, really. I get to make her cover a lot of songs that I like from now on if I do this! I could probably use the microphones to record acoustic covers, too. Watch out for our youtube channel, we’ll be making one soon, so we’ll keep you updated on this blog!
So my friend Bianca and I went out this weekend to look for bikinis because it’s summer time here in pinoyland, and, well, I ended up doing some side shopping for accessories, too.
I realized that most of the local shops here sell poor quality jewelries at insanely expensive prices, and I was not satisfied because I’ve been buying these types of accessories for so long and I’ve gotten nothing but skin rashes from them.
Don’t get me wrong, I have found a couple of shops that sell good quality jewelries for a good price, but the country is just overflowing with the bad ones. My friend realized my dilemma and introduced me to Joy Jewelers. I am now so in love with the website.
I’ve been spending about three hours just browsing through their catalog, and it’s just too beautiful.
You guys should check it out if you love accessories as much as I do.
So apparently I have been living like some sort of neanderthal, according to my friends on twitter.
All this time I have been using iTunes and being obsessive compulsive about having blank artworks, and my friend just randomly tweets that iTunes’ get album artwork button is his best friend. I stared at my twitter feed in shock for a good twenty seconds when I asked about it.
Right now I’m spending the rest of my night getting album artwork for the albums that I’ve been too lazy to lookup on google.
I feel like an idiot, mostly, but… this is just amazing. YAY!
Oh, did you know about hairpin cotter pins? Apparently they’re not exactly for hair.. They exist for round objects like hitch pins and what not.
I just wanted to share the things I learned, basically, because I’ve felt really silly when I realized I didn’t know these things.
I guess they weren’t kidding when they said that you learn something new everyday.
So earlier today I realized that I had my priorities wrong. I checked my bills and realized that my phone bill has reached almost a quarter of my salary, and that got me alarmed.
I don’t have much left to be able to enroll for an unlimited yoga class for a month, and I was just starting to get warmed up to it. It’s actually good for my back since I have mild scoliosis.
A couple of weeks ago, I was actually saving up for a flat panel stand for my TV so I can actually play PS3 games. My friends told me that they’d probably spend summer at our house to hog my new television and I wasn’t really looking forward to my room being invaded, so I put that on hold.
What are your priorities right now? Share it to us!
Up until now, I’m still amazed at how a single laptop can turn into a full blown recording studio.
My friend who records songs and posts them on youtube and soundcloud told me that she simply uses a recording software that she paid for and she uses her mac to record with only one specific gadget: the apogee duet.
It was amazing, really. It made recording vocal, guitar and drum tracks so easy with its interfact and sleek design. The quality made it even seem like it was from a real recording studio and not just in my room where airplanes pass by every fifteen minutes.
And don’t even get me started on the full color OLED display. It’s just… brilliant in a box, really! I just have to save up to get one. Haha.
What kind of tools, gadgets and software do you use to record your music? Share your stuff!
A while ago I was watching a movie featuring Jeremy Renner. I wasn’t exactly sure what it was about, but the fight scenes were amazing. This parking space had some sort of machine that was lifting the car towards its parking space, and I was literally amazed for a while.
I suppose it’s the fact that I’m living in Pinoyland that I don’t get to see contraptions like that everyday, but a part of me wanted to go and buy auto lifts just for the hell of it.
And then I realized I didn’t really have enough money to spare because I keep spending and using up all my resources on food.
Priorities always get me, really. Haha.
Whoever invented that thing gets my seal of approval. You, sir, (or ma’am), are a genius.
One of the biggest disadvantages of living in the land of Pinoys for me is the fact that we still have to apply for visas when we wish to go to America, Europe, and almost every other country that’s worth visiting.
My sister was nice enough to offer some help for my visa application since I actually intend to visit her in New York sometime this year.
I’ll be going there for about a month so I decided we should go on road trips and just explore to make the most of my visit.
One of the places that really caught my eye while I was looking for places to go to was Ocean Isle beach nc real estate. The beach looks amazing and I know that none could compare to that of my home town, but still, I want to see what the rest of the world has to offer.
Do you guys have any recommendations for my trip to the US? Where else should I go?
Just finished cleaning up the mess from the installation of our water pipes. I had the pipes replaced because the water started tasting like rust. This house is already thirty years old. That time, water pipes were made of steel, which eventually rust after decades of use. Anyhow, the engineer also added a hot water pipeline so that the hot water will be centralized. No more boiling of water in the pot for bath!
Also, instead of water filters for each faucet, he added a whole house water filter. With this, filter replacement will not be that hard to do anymore. Best of all, the water faucets in the house now deliver potable water. No need to go to the kitchen just to get clean water like before. Damn, I think all the cleaning made me soo tired even to blog. I guess I’ll just sleep now.
Since I have a lot of friends who produce their own music, I was lucky enough to just have them volunteer to help me set up my own production set.
They helped me soundproof my room and let me know which kinds of microphones I should get for a reasonable price with amazing quality.
I only realized now that putting my thoughts into songs would be more productive than posting cryptic things on twitter in an attempt to hit someone else’s nerve.
At the moment, I’m saving up for pro tools 9 le at musicians friend. They say that it’s quite user friendly and even though it’s pricey, the ROI will be reaped once I use it and record good songs with it.
I just really hope that I wouldn’t turn up to sound like one of those auto tuned pop stars when I’m done with my songs. :/
