TONOR Q9 USB Microphone Kit Review

Capturing audio can be tricky. If you want an easy to setup and use solution, you might want to consider the TONOR Q9 USB Microphone Kit.

The microphone itself is cardioid. So you’ll want to talk directly and generally close to the front face of the microphone. Thankfully it does come with a pop filter and foam mic cover. This will help block your puffs of air as you’re speaking. The suspension scissor arm stand allows you to rotate 360 degrees and lock the microphone in place. The metal shock mount holds the microphone as if it’s on a cloud. With it will be able to preventing any shocking noises if you nudge into your stand.

To connect your microphone to the computer the kit comes with a USB cord. You can also connect it to the Playstation 4, but not Xbox One.

For the price the audio sounds perfect. It captures a wide range and enough bass to satisfy most typical users. If for some reason you want a higher end microphone, you should be able to swap it on the arm, but depending on its width may need a different shock mount.

I do think this is a great kit for anyone who wants to quickly step up their audio quality.

Capski Bottle Opener, Sudski Shower Beer Holder, Sipski Wine Holder, Joeski Shower Coffee Holder Review

We all know that friend who is either an alcoholic or a caffeine addict. A lot of the time we may struggle to find them the perfect gift. Well I might have just helped you with that with the Capski Bottle Opener, Sudski Shower Beer Holder, Sipski Wine Holder, and Joeski Shower Coffee Holder.

The Capski Bottle Opener allows you to stick a bottle cap opener on your refrigerator without a magnet or permanent sticky adhesive. The Sudski Shower Beer Holder, Sipski Wine Holder, and Joeski Shower Coffee Holder are meant for your shower/bath tub. They as well are meant to stick without a permanent sticky adhesive to hold the desired beverage.

Of course these are all gag gifts, but I did find the Capski Bottle Opener to be the most helpful out of the bunch. Everyone needs an easy to find bottle cap opener. All of the products need to be placed on a surface for over 24 hours. I did have problems with the Sudski Shower Beer Holder, Sipski Wine Holder, and Joeski Shower Coffee Holder. For some reason they did not want to stick onto my type of tile for more than several hours. So obviously I wasn’t able to get them to hold a drink.

If you’re looking for a white elephant present, or some other sort of gift that says I guess you’ll like this you might want to check this out.

Bug Out Bar Chocolate Brownie

That is the face of someone who has taken a leap for mankind. If you’re like me you’ve probably never thought about eating bugs. I understand that there are benefits, but is it worth the risk?

Well know that I fully ate one of the Chocolate Brownie Bug Out Bar before I wrote this article. Half an hour later and my stomach is not turning. Honestly I thought I’d be in the bathroom by now.

I’ve tried pea protein and almond butter, but cricket protein? I had not. The way Bug Out Bar mixes their ingredients I would never be able to tell that I had just ate a cricket. The number one thing I tasted was chocolate. A chocolate bar with 15g of protein, has healthy ingredients, and is better for the environment – sign me up!

Bug Out Bar’s website says if you want animal based protein, eating more crickets could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by a factor of 100x, cut water usage by 56x, and reduce land use by 10x. Crickets general nutrition tends to be higher than other animal products as well: 2x the protein of beef, 6x the B12 of wild salmon, more omega-3 fatty acids than wild salmon, omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 2:1, iron in similar amounts to beef, probiotic fiber may improve gut health and reduce inflammation, all 9 essential amino acids.

That’s a long list and since eating a bar, I can easily see myself adding more to my diet. It tastes good and seems to be good for you.

I found a comparison of Bug Out Bar vs the rest. Really makes you think about which one you want in your body.
