Karmin Crash Your Party

It’s always great to see talented people get recognition, and that is why it is so great to see the online YouTube sensation, Karmin, finally get the credit that they deserve. This duo began showing off their musical talents through YouTube videos, and their obvious musical gifts were easily recognized and they now boast a hit single, Crash Your Party, which is available on iTunes, as well as a fast paced music video to accompany the song.

Nick an Amy are the two that make the music possible. Their single has even been featured recently on Amazon as the hit song of the day. They met each other while attending college and began writing music together and collaborating, and well, the rest is history! Most of their early music that they showed off online were covers of popular pop songs. With a huge fan base that is ever growing and a promising career in the music industry, you are sure to hear a lot more from Karmin in the near future.

Not a Gallery: Twentieth Century Visual Art

What do you think of when the term “art” is mentioned? Do you think of famous works like the Mona Lisa, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, or Van Gogh’s Starry Night? Technology has evolved by leaps and bounds since the Renaissance period, and so has artistic style. Digital art has revolutionized aesthetic tastes, and one particular digital artist, Justin Belmont, is sharing his talent with art lovers everywhere.

Justin Belmont runs Notagallery.com, where he sells his work. His digital paintings are surfaced with handcrafted acrylic paint on two inch deep Birchwood frames. They’re created with 8-Color UltraChrome Ink, personally signed and ready to hang upon reception. His subjects are colorful and unique. His wall rounds are equally attention-drawing. While they have a heavy gauge texture, they’re easily repositionable sheets of wallpaper. The most unique of Belmont’s art is the Diamond Dust series, with which he uses eleven carats of crushed diamonds on pop icon subjects such as Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman, and Audrey Hepburn.

The digital paintings and wall rounds are available in varying sizes and ships in two weeks’ time from the time of the purchase. The wall rounds and smaller digital paintings are least expensive, costing up to $300. The Diamond Dust works are one-of-a-kind and hence the most expensive, available only at $2700 and ship in three weeks’ time. Treat a fellow art collector to this new, iconic style by giving them a gift card to the site. Just as classical pieces like the Mona Lisa and Starry Night reflect the ideals and styles of their time; Belmont captures modern culture and accentuates it in very unique ways. Products from Not a Gallery will liven up any room with color, fun, and personality. There are art pieces that can fit any budget and compliment any style.

MiiBottle

A major problem in most modern-day households is the identification of whose drink is whose. I can speak from past experience that this is something that has went on throughout time and didn’t seem to ever have an end in sight. The United States in particular is the largest purchaser of bottled water in the entire world, that should say something for itself. Around 70 million bottles of water are purchased daily in the U.S. and nearly 60 million of them end up in the trash. A contributing factor are those bottles thrown away because you simply don’t want to drink out of someone else’s bottle.

One rising company is changing the way we identify our bottles and making it easy and fun to keep track of which drink is yours! MiiBottle is a simple and easy to use system of identifying your bottle. You simply take one of their variously colored snap-on bottle identifiers and clip it onto the bottle with no hassle or instructions other than that needed. They also boast a neat dolphin design making it that much more entertaining just to regard a bottle as yours. But you may be wondering, what makes MiiBottle such a great company?

Well, for starters their products are made of 100% recycled material! It’s great to know that you have a product that you will actually use, but it makes it that much better to know that the product that you are using is made of recycled material! Another cool thing about this company is, they have solved an issue that is simple yet bothersome, and they have done so in a very innovative way!

We have had the opportunity to try these ourselves and they are as simple and easy to use as they look. You will notice that they have a firm snap around your bottles lid, so there are no worries about them falling off of your bottle. The colors are also very vibrant and look great, especially when there are multiple bottles using them! The packaging is simple and conveys the same overall idea of simplicity and problem solving and lets you know the true purpose of this life changing product, to simply make your everyday life easier, save you money on bottles you may’ve thrown away and provide a fun solution to an age old question, “Is that my bottle?” Now you will know, “Yes, it’s MiiBottle!”
