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.

Youtopia

So you’ve all herd of Owl City, I’m quite sure you have. Did you know that he has a few singles out there that somehow have slid under the radar? Ah, you should’ve known that! For a while now the song Youtopia by Adam Young from Owl City and musically adapt Armin van Buuren has been blasting it’s way across the internet, but never given much attention. Well, now there is an oficial music video for it that features none other than Adam himself! It’s rare for a single this unknown to get a music video, much a legit one with the artist himself featured in it.

Now, I’m not quite sure what is going on in the video, obviously she is recreating memories of a love she has lost, but at times it comes off a little creepy. Watch it and you will know what I mean. The romance scenes seem a tad rehearsed and fake, but hey, Adam is a musician, not an actor! The girl however, she could do better and to my knowledge she is an actress. For example, notice when she wakes up towards the end…she just pops her eyes open! Normally, to seem less scripted, one would expect a slow opening of the eyes for a more dramatic realization that reality has sunk in. Anyway, we liked the video, watch and determine for yourself!

Cannon PowerShot ELPH 300HS

Looking for a good camera to buy as a gift for someone? We can’t help you with that, what we can do is help you find an amazing camera! It may be for you, a gift, or whatever, but this camera is quite impressive! I have used this camera for about five months now and I honestly have to admit that the quality is second to none and the video shooting is true HD meaning that it seriously looks great! I bought this camera because I needed a good camera to make YouTube videos with and it helps that it is not only a superb camera but also a very impressive video camera!

There are three colors in the 300HS version, and I went with red. When you see a red camera it is unmistakable that it is a Cannon PowerShot! The color is vibrant and the texture is perfect for holding. The only complaint that I have is my Micro SDHC memory card is sometimes not readable, but this is easily fixed by turning the camera off then back on. I am almost certain that this is due to the memory card itself and not the camera, either way it is a small price to pay for the quality that this camera outputs! Oh, and just in case you are wondering, this is the camera that many YouTubers use such as CTFxC and other prominent video bloggers (for those of you interested in making YouTube videos).

It’s All About The Packaging

How many times have you been out shopping and found yourself drawn to an item just because it has a cool design to it? Even if you do not realize it, the majority of things sold in our global market are sold based on design, not so much for productivity or purpose. I am not saying that something can’t look good and still be useful, take a Macintosh computer for example, it’s elegant and extremely useful! You may not even realize that you are buying something based on it’s looks.

In many aspects of our shopping endeavors the product with the coolest box or the most snappy phrases written on it win our money. I honestly believe that you can have a good product that will not be successful in its sales if the packaging is not worth looking at. Personally, I would choose a drink contained in a modern or newly designed bottle rather than a coke that is in the same old can we see it in on a daily basis. This is not always the case, in fact many people will choose a brand that they know because they are so used to it, but think about it, even coke had branded packaging back when it first came on the market with it’s beautifully crafted glass bottles. It’s all in the packaging, don’t believe me? Take a look at our gallery of amazingly packaged products and see if you can honestly say you wouldn’t want to buy it for the packaging!

Fred 2: Night Of The Living Fred

Looking for a good movie to watch this Halloween season? Well, look no further. There are two groups of viewers out there, and there simply is no in between. The first group loves Fred and the second doesn’t care for his sense of humor. I fit into the first group, or at least I do for the Fred movies. I feel like there should be more movies like this, not in the aspect of how it is written or the storyboard, but more so relating to the style in which it is shot. It is very down to Earth and you get the feeling that this isn’t a very professional movie, it’s relatable! Before we go any further though, let me answer a few questions that you may have bouncing around in your Halloween excited head!

First, let me tell you that the part of Bertha is no longer played by Jennette McCurdy from the show iCarly. They have recase the part of Bertha for some unknown reason, but I don’t enjoy it when they switch out the roles of main characters. Second, the story is still very much like the first and you will notice elements that resemble the first Fred movie very closely. He still visits a shop where comedic humor is exchanged between him and the shop owners, Derf will appear for a moment in the movie just as he did in the first, and for those of you who don’t know, Derf is Freds imaginary opposite in regards to personality, and one last thing that you may want to know about is that this movie makes Fred seem more “unstable” than the first. While the wild imagination is a very important aspect to Fred, this movie takes it almost too far.

Overall, the movie is very entertaining and is definitely something that you will want to watch this Halloween season. It still has the same familiar humor of Fred that we have grown to love, a comical storyboard, and of course the wildly imaginative character of Fred. We recommend this movie as a good watch for this holiday season!
