Guide to Buying a Guitar 2014 Holiday Edition

Guide To Buy A Guitar
Our friend’s at Gables Guitar Studio put together an in depth guide to buying an acoustic guitar. It is perfect for those looking to buy a guitar as a gift this Holiday season, but whom are feeling overwhelmed by the seemingly infinite amount of options. My favorite tip in the guide is to steer clear of collector editions (unless, of course, you are a guitar collector). I always seem to gravitate towards “Special Edition Guitars” but in reality I would rather have a high quality guitar than a lower quality special edition. If you are in the market for a new guitar this guide is a MUST read. Also, they will be posting a guide with tips and recommendations to buying electric guitars soon.

Gifts For Your iPhone Aficionado Friend

I should be attending a smartphone addict meeting.  The last thing I do is check my email in bed and guess what is the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning?  You guessed it!  I check my email. As I write this post I am a little sickened by my attachment to my iPhone.  At least I recognize I have a problem and I am taking steps to correct this behavior.  Nonetheless, you might know at least one person like me and we would love to receive iPhone related presents.  Anything that makes my smart phone easier to carry around, more convenient or more useful would be greatly appreciated by us – iPhone addicts :) Here are a few ideas:  1.

Collecting Cool Headphones

There is something about finding a nice pair of headphones.   They make you want to listen to music, practice your electronic drum set or simply immerse yourself in your own thoughts. We couldn’t stop ourselves  from building a headphone collection and it has come in very handy. For example, we never board a plane without noise canceling headphones and have survived crying-baby-snoring-passenger flights.  Now if we could find the equivalent to a smell canceling device we’d all be golden :)  Anyhoo, here are come cool headphones we recently stumbled upon: 1. Panasonic RP HTX7 Headphones, 2. Star Wars Headphones, 3. Marshall Major Headphones, 4. Urbanears ‘Plattan’ Headphones Red, 5.  Skullcandy Aviator Headphones, 6. Opportunity Rocks Headphones in Hardwood

Julie West started out as a traditional media artist – using primarily acrylic, gouache, and technical pens. After spending a few years working as a print and web designer, various computer and design related elements began to surface in her work.
