Today is my birthday. I wrote this in advance, I’m not here, lol. The point is that I love karaoke, I have a passion for singing. I am not a gamer. However I dusted off my PS2 and have been very into Singstar lately. So these are some silly, fun YouTube videos that I made using Singstar. I have been told that it’s difficult to hear the music in them but I’m not as technologically inclined as you may think. The point is if you ever wondered what it’s like to just chill, have fun and do karaoke with me, this is it. Oh, except I’m totally sober in these videos. I do usually drink at least some when I go out.

If you enjoyed these you can find more covers on my YouTube Channel

This post brought to you by Kia Rio. All opinions are 100% mine.

The 2013 Kia Rio 5 door in Chestnut

Have you guys heard of the 2012 Kia Rio? It's a neat 5 door car. It has many impressive features that are basically crucial in our connected world.  It includes a USB jack, navigation and Bluetooth. Check out the video about and the Rio Explorer Page .

In this video two sets of best buds take on the Zip and Dash geocache scavenger hunt challenge utilizing the Kia Rio. Their mission is to find hidden clues and discover Los Angeles landmarks. I always say that the journey is the best part of life but in this case there is also a pot of gold at the end. They actually get to meet a Hollywood celeb when they complete their mission, singer and actress Christina Milian.

How do they do it? Well the Kia Rio has UVO Technology . Uvo even naviagates your audio and phone controls so you can drive but stay connected. Plus its rear camera display acts as an extra set of eyes so you can worry less when backing up. I would definitely say that's my favorite feature because it will save lives.

During their hunt they visit The Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round, Amoeba Records, Rodeo Drive, Pink’s Hot Dogs and The Roosevelt Hotel. I found the Rodeo Drive segment to be the most challenging. Of course the race to meet her at the end is the most thrilling part!
 

I would definitely do a challenge like this. If the celeb that you got to meet in LA were my choice I would go with Lindsay Lohan. Now if I could do something similar in another locale it would probably be in Las Vegas and we'd end up meeting Hugh Hefner.

What are your thoughts on this scavenger hunt video? What celeb would you love to find at the end?

The first time I heard Pittsburgh Slim was back in 07 when his huge single Girls Kiss Girls dropped. It was amazing. Not only was the song fun and danceable but relateable as well. All of my friends had done it. (You ladies can act “adult” now but I regret nothing). A radio DJ did mention that he was from Pittsburgh but I didn’t pay much heed. I was in super party mode back then. On a random visit to a Target I saw his album Tastemaker. I was so jazzed. I bought that sucker in a minute. I proceeded to turn everyone I knew into a Slim fan whether they were aware of it or not (I was fond of making mix CDs/playlists for parties and I always would shove a couple of his tracks in). You don’t even know how much I love that album.

easy on the eyes as well

Since then time Pittsburgh Slim has additionally went by the moniker Slimmie Hendrix. He’s put out various mixtapes/LPs, Downtown Wednesday Night, Nolita Nights and Steezington Ave. (yes, go find and download them!). His 2009 single My Bitch is Crazy is also fantastic.

Now he is back in the Burgh and has a new mixtape, Pittsburgh Slim’s Excellent Adventure. So I nerdily contacted him and wound up with this kick ass interview with the legendary Pittsburgh Slim.

This post brought to you by Lenovo. All opinions are 100% mine.

So I need to clue you into the neat Lenovo speaker . This Lenovo M0520 speaker includes a main speaker with built-in amplifiers and sub-speaker. It is a 2.0 speaker system. The amazing quality of this speaker comes from the 4 watts of power that it provides. It even has a handy USB powered connection with an energy saving function. Can you believe that the wires even spool for easy storage? No fuss there. I hate tangled wires all over the place.

And look at that style. Despite their size these speakers are quite eye catching yet elegant.

So many different types of people could benefit from these speakers. Everyone seems to have a MP3 or MP4 player these days. Plus we love our smart phones. However you don't always get that kick butt sound from a single device. These are great to plug right into your phone.

In fact I just received a new phone and after I've added all of my favorite tunes these speakers would be perfect to just kick the audio up on them a bit.

These are also excellent for laptops. Many have built in speakers that don't produce a robust sound. Insert these and your laptop will be hopping in no time at all.

Why would you want to waste money on those 1.0 speakers that are on the market when you can go directly to these babies?

Let's not forget about how convenient these are to take along with you due to their compact size. You could keep them in lots of place for easy access, such as your glove compartment so you can never stop jamming along to your favorite songs that you have on your cell. Even though they are so portable I think it would be a smart idea to grab a few of them so you can keep them where you need them when you need them, maybe one in the car and another on your computer desk.

Don't forget to grab a few extra for your friends because they will be jealous!
