It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a second income or not, there are plenty of hobbies out there that can earn you one. The good thing about these is that they don't have to be particularly difficult ones that you put hours and hours of your week into; they're just ones that you can enjoy and have fun with. If you have a hobby that you love already, you could try to monetize it, but there are others that you can learn to love that will put cash in your pocket even without trying!

How well do you know your Festive Tunes?

As Noddy Holder once belted out: It’s CHRISTMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!

Christmas is the best time of year to catch up with family and dispense joy and goodwill to all mankind! But mostly it’s about dry turkey, the inevitable Christmas day argument, terrible secret Santa gifts and searching for the batteries you are sure you bought. Or like us, hiding from everyone while you play casino games at bgo.

‘Tis the season to dust of the trusty old Christmas Jumper and search for the very best Christmas playlist to get yourself right in the mood for some serious Christmas prep!

You may have been subjected to some Christmas tunes enough times to make you go full grinch – steal Christmas and lock it away so no one ever has to listen to that drivel EVER again, but there are many classic and new Christmas songs that are undeniably decent. Some may even be considered bangers!

The Internet is the Most Relevant Modern Source for Music Management

Are you interested in music management in the 21st century? While you may have the inclination to manage a modern musical act, you may not have the stomach to leap into the arena of endless legal disputes. This aspect of the music business has only grown more contentious in recent years. If you have been paying attention to the recent battle in the music industry over artist placement on Spotify, you have no doubt noticed that the main source of the dispute is royalty payments. Artists can achieve more exposure in a shorter time, but at the seeming sacrifice of actual financial compensation.

80Boy Plug In Speaker
Hey there.  I'm music guy.  I love music.  I read music, I play music, I analyze music, I listen to music, I live and breathe music.  So it's no surprise that I surround myself with music whenever I can.  Though I prefer to completely submerge myself in music with a set of headphones, sometimes you simply cannot tune the whole world out and will need to find an alternative.  Enter the 80Boy Rechargeable Speaker!  Our good friends at 80Boy provided this awesome speaker to try out and review and you know what... I absolutely love this thing!  It's compact, it's loud, it's easy to use, and it's extremely practical!  Let's get right to it, but first... let's talk specs!

Sound Intone i68 Headphone Headset Review


Hey there. As most of you know, not all over the ear headphones are the same. Some look awesome but sound poorly. Others have great sound quality but their design is a head scratcher. A quick online search will yield plenty of great looking headphones that claim are the best sounding. But once you see that you need to cough up over $100 for them, you second guess that headset. But what if I were to tell you that you can get a great sounding set of headphones that look pretty good? Well… our friends at Sound Intone has you covered! Sound Intone recently provided me the Sound Intone i68 Headphones (Black and Orange) to try out and review. I’ve been using the headphones for the last two weeks and I am now ready to give you guys my review. But before I go into my experience, let’s talk specs.

Sound Intone i65 Headphone Headset Review

Sound Intone i65  Headphones
Loving the sleek design of the Sound Intone i65 Headphones!
Hey there. As most of you know, I’m a huge fan of music. So I listen to music for about 5 hours a day, if not more. This puts me in prime position to test out new headphones for long periods of time so that I can check out what works and what doesn’t. Recently, I’ve been donning the Sound Intone i65 Headphones (Black and Gold) during those long periods of music time. Our good friends Sound Intone provided me with the i65 headset to try out and review. I’ve been using in ear headphones recently so it’s a nice change of pace to use a headband, over the ear cuff headphones. But before I go into my experience, let’s talk specs.

The FandomVerse Expo Sept. 4 - 6, 2015 in Lancaster, CA

Hey there.  It's been awhile since I last attended an expo.  I think the last one I went to was the AM2 Expo in Anaheim a few years back.  Well... I went to LA Fitness Expo as well but I don't think I covered that.  Anyways, when I read online that there was an anime/gaming/cosplay/just about everything else Expo going on in Lancaster, CA, I just had to get inside scoop!  Welcome the FandomVerse Expo! It's a relatively new expo that is still feeling its way and this is their second year holding an event.  Last year, they had a one day expo while this year, they are making it a 3 day affair!  And guess what?!  I have a press badge!  After reaching out to the awesome people behind FandomVerse Expo, I was able to secure a press badge for some primo seating and interview time with some of the guests of honor!  How awesome is that?!

Connecting People Musically

In the world today, it seems like there are many things that divide people. People are divided over which sports team is the best. Other people are divided over which political party or politician offers the best hope. Different languages and dialects can prove to be challenging when communication is needed in a number of countries. Although there is division, one of the best forms of connecting people is through music.

iLike Speed Metal Bluetooth Headphones Review

Hey there.  It's no secret that I love music and I have several sets of headsets/headphones to match the occasion.  I want to lounge around?  I get some super comfy headphones.  I'm going out for a run?  Get the in ear sweat proof headphones.  Doing some work out in the yard?  Get the heavy duty, noise cancelling headphones.  I think that it's amazing the different styles of headphones that are out on the market.  That's why when a company comes to me and asks for my opinion on their headset, I'm super eager to give them a try and see how they compare to some of the others in my collection.  This time, our good friends at OPPO provided me with the OPPO Exclusive iLike Speed Metal Bluetooth Headphones to try out and review.  Though I already have a few sets of lounging around headphones, I was excited to get a pair of the iLike Speed Metal Headphones because it has one of the more unique designs that I have seen.  So lets not waste anymore time, so before I get into my thoughts and experience, let's talk specs.
