Maybe you don’t necessarily need a Jennifer Lopez as a planner, who might ends up stealing the groom, but having a planning can be a life-saver! Here are some great reasons:
For the very detail oriented, it is recommended very strongly. The bride cannot take on the need and desire to make sure that everything is right alone. Also for those who know they have a tendency to worry most likely should have a wedding planner to help put them at ease. Weddings should be a joyful experience all in all but if you don’t have a designated “stress bearer” then it’s almost a guarantee that it will either be on the bride or her bridesmaid, or whoever else she designated amongst her guests to help her plan for the perfect wedding.
The use of a wedding planner gives the bride someone to depend on and this is most important on the day of her wedding. The planner takes the burden to feel those butterflies about the need for everything to be perfect. She gives the bride a peace of mind because someone else is seeing everything through and checking that it is running just as planned. A wedding planner not only plans the wedding but also has an important job of handling the mood of the wedding; it is her job to make sure that for the reception she has planned a perfect end to the wedding almost like a live concert. She creates the perfect schedule and array of speakers, arrival of food, and last but not least music. She must hire a DJ and/or band that suits the bride and her groom well. Most people always remember the dances at their wedding or the first song that gets played.
At times, it may seem like this musical importance is minuscule, but ask any relative, or even yourself, if married, what were some of the most memorable times at a wedding, and most people will mention something that had to do with the music or the dance floor! Us at Stereopill know how important music is to a wedding, and we take importance in allowing the musical experience to be one to remember.
So for all you wedding planners out there, try out Stereopill, we guarantee that not only the groom and bride will love the music, but the guests will to, because they will all have an opportunity to vote and share their opinion on what they would like to here. Who knows, as a planner who participant in the wedding, you may be receiving the best wedding compliments of the year for going with Stereopill, who doesn’t love an amazing array of music that caters to everyone at their wedding?
With Steve Jobs gone, Apple seems to be staying on track with releasing innovative products, the most discussed topic among iPhone lovers right now is the ‘iPhone 5 release date.
The iphone has a grand extent of rave and popularity, no wonder its release date is a huge topic of discussion amongst every type of person, from tech geek to ‘girly’ girls. Its capabilities seem to be endless, and the commercials often portray it as an “all knowing” go to gadget. I mean who hasn’t heard of Siri? Apparently its release date has been set back due to some technical issues that need to be tidied up with the iphone’s processing, estimated to be released sometime between Spring and Fall 2012.
The Iphone is the phone of choice for the majority of young, hip, media professionals. But is it because the phone is the most useful, or has the rave made people blindly profess loyalty to the phone? No doubt it is leading in the phone world, but how do other competitors like the Android compete with it?
Androids seem to have some of the capabilities the iphone does, but at times, it seems like their battery can’t hold up to the capabilities that we would ideally like it to. And of course let’s not forget about phone applications. Apple loves applications and most companies are catering to this by coming out with the next best iphone app, like foursquare, pandora, and twitter.
Overall we personality can’t wait to see what’s in store for the iphone 5 and see what these companies catering to creating new applications have in store for us. Better yet, who will be releasing the best new music media app? How do you feel about iphone and phone applications, particularly music ones?
Feel free to share with us at Stereopill and have a great day!

What makes people come to New York to follow their dreams?
Is the answer that obvious? Is the ‘big apple’ still the best place to come to pursue your career?
About 50% of New York’s population are not native New Yorkers. Most likely more than half of you who read this blog if in New York probably moved here from somewhere else.
With the economy not doing so well, and the market not as open to new employees as it once was, what keeps people coming to one of the most expensive cities in the states? A wild guess is that it’s not the weather?
New York, however expensive or difficult it may be to live in, seems to give the young entrepreneur or artist a motivation that’s much harder to find in other places. Yes the competition is fierce but it seems to inspire workers and artists alike to simply work harder to make it to the top. New York is a great place particularly for those interested in media and music. New York can be considered an empire of the media world with so many new start-ups and business opportunities at hand. As far as music and aspiring artists are concerned, some of the world’s biggest artists like Jay-Z and his company Roc nation, a true story of rags to riches, started here.
The NYC nightlife and amount of parties thrown in the city provides aspiring Djs with a fair amount of opportunities, there’s gig opportunities almost everyday of the week. There are also a ton of small jobs readily available for quick or temporary pay, which satisfies those looking for instant gratification.
Living in New York overall seems to be a give and take type of deal. It may cost a bit more but the exchange of variety in career opportunities seems to be more than enough to keep people coming and choosing to stay. So as crazy as it may seem at times to try and live in a city where rent is nearly twice as much as other places, remember that New York gives its residence a sense of purpose and a constant reminder to achieve more. Because if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere, right?

Have you ever found yourself so upset you forgot your headphones and would be in for a long journey in the city without any music? We took a moment and thought about why music is so important to us and why the thought of going through the day without it could be so upsetting.
In this generation we have grown accustomed to having music ready to access where ever we are. Whether it’s going to workout with a buddy at the gym, or simply having that inspiring song on our way to work. Music has become a part of most individuals’ lives, almost as an underlying theme to who they are. What is it about that Fray song that comforts and calms us on a cold fall morning? Or that Katy Perry, ‘Hot n Cold’ that gets us going on our way to grab a cup of coffee?
Music and headphone use is steadily gaining popularity day after day. It continues to inspire, motivate, and at times distract us from our everyday encounters. The day seems to be mundane when there’s no option to have headphones to accompany it. But we ask, what are we losing out on with music always in our ear? Do our everyday lives need to have a soundtrack and is it okay to miss out on the little things that once inspired us? Are we forgetting the sounds and existence of those around us, tuning into our own worlds and as a result tuning out of interactions with society and nature?
Music is a great and beautiful thing, but let’s not forget the sounds of our everyday interactions. The sounds of people conversing, and even the sounds of the subway, bus, and cars on the highway, that somehow seem to connect us all.So, the next time you forget your headphones, don’t fret, let it be a day in which you tune into the world around you. Say hello to a stranger or simply dance to the sounds of the city and find joy in a sound we all can hear together.
