Instrumentals Vol.01 Instrumentals Vol.1

One of the many things that I did before I became a dad was create mixtapes, remixes, and some instrumentals. Over those years I have grown quite the collection of instrumentals that are not being used. So I had the brilliant idea of giving them away royalty free. Some instrumentals do have samples that have not been cleared, so it would be your responsibility to clear those with the original artists if you plan to commercialize these instrumentals. Instrumentals – Vol.01 will be released under a Creative Commons license. Read more about the specific license attached to these instrumentals here. If you have any questions about any of the instrumentals I can do my best to answer them, just send me an email.

This first download features five instrumentals with a variety of sounds. Project 005 has a great Halloween feel to it. Very spooky! Please comment below or email me with a link to your project if you use one of these instrumentals. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did making them and be sure to subscribe and follow me on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook to find out when Vol. 02 will be released!

Playskool Heroes Jurassic World Dino Tracker!

IMG_0517The hype behind Jurassic World is real. The movie is exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you have been busy all summer I suggest you get a chance to see it on the big screen before it’s too late. Fortunately for my little ones they get to bring the action home thanks to Hasbro’s line of Playskool Heroes!

This four piece set includes the Dino Tracker 4X4 with working Dino Tracking Technology this vehicle emits a red light showing the dino footprints needed to track and capture the included Velociraptor figure. You can secure the raptor in the included cage that attaches to the Dino Tracker. And let’s not forget the hero of our adventure. He does not have a name listed on the box but we like to pretend it’s Owen from the movie.

What I really like about this toy is that it has very simple pieces. Things do not get too complicated for my daughter and son to figure out. The vehicle rolls great and the cage actually stays attached. My son let out a squeal of excitement when we unboxed the raptor. His bright orange color make him easy to spot by any child. One thing you will probably notice is that Hasbro has done an excellent job at making this vehicle work with other Playskool Heroes figures. Such as the Marvel or Star Wars characters. The figures fit perfectly with Owen and the Dino Tracker, making an expanded Jurassic/Marvel/Star Wars universe a possibility.

IMG_0589Making these toys compatible with each other is every kids dream. It keeps things in scale and a lot more fun for the kids. We as parents spend hours upon hours making sure our children’s toys are separated. Action figures in this box, cars in another, ponies in another. Adults like to keep things clean and organized. But let’s be real, kids like to use their imagination, and if that means Twilight Sparkle is being hunted by Spider-Man riding the Dino Tracker than so be it!

There is also a Dino Copter that you can purchase to go along with the Dino Tracker. It has a figure and a dinosaur to go with it as well. Check out the images below to see both of these great toys in high quality!

Boo Bar Treats for Halloween!

chewy.comThis month Chewy has the perfect treat for your doggies this Halloween season. Boo Bar treats are a mix of pumpkin and cinnamon baked together with whole grains, fruits, and veggies. Made by The Blue Buffalo Co. these were very loved by both Clark and Miss Lady. Too be perfectly honest I wasn’t optimistic about these treats at first. I wasn’t sure the dogs would like a pumpkin and cinnamon flavored treat. Like usual, I was wrong. The dogs loved them and were begging for them every time we got them out.

IMG_0444Holiday themed treats are a fantastic way to switch it up from the normal treats you may get for your dogs. If you get to enjoy some pumpkin in your latte, why not give your pets a nice pumpkin and spice treat too! These would be great to give out to any dogs that may be out trick or treating (with their owners permission of course).

Again, like some of the other dog treats we get, we had to put these ones up so the kids could not see them. The fun packaging can really fool those that cannot read yet. My son Alex threw a nice tantrum when we would not give him a treat. He is only 19 months right now so he just doesn’t understand, and it’s kinda funny when you think about it. I’m sure he would probably think these are pretty tasty too! We’ll keep them away from him just in case. provided St. Louis Dad with these products as compensation in exchange for an honest review.
