What got left off your Christmas list this year?

Thursday, December 25, 2008

Every year there’s always something that you really wanted for Christmas, but Santa didn’t bring for one reason or another. Or, maybe you received an Amazon Gift Card this year and you’re just looking for a few ideas on what some of the hottest gifts are this season.

Maybe you were really hoping for an iPod this year. Check out the 120 GB iPod Classic, which holds up to 30,000 songs, 150 hours of video, 25,000 photos, or any combination. You can discover new music, movies, TV shows, games, audio books, and podcasts from the iTunes Store. You can even rent a movie and watch it on the go. You can save $20 by purchasing from Amazon.

Maybe you were looking to make and play your own music. Check out the new Wii Music from Nintendo, one of the hottest gifts of the year. Unlike other music games, which penalize players if they don't play perfectly, Wii Music is a musical playground where there are no mistakes. Here anyone can pick up and master more than 60 instruments using simple motions like strumming and drumming. Musicians in your band jam by simply playing their instruments to the beat of a song or by improvising to their heart's content. You can even play and record solo as well. Click here for more information.

Staying on the music theme, did you know that Neil Young just released a new album? Sugar Mountain - Live At Canterbury House 1968, is the latest installment in the continuing Neil Young Archives Performance Series. One of the greatest singer-songwriters in rock history is heard solo and acoustic on this album. This set contains a CD featuring 14 tracks, a DVD disc including a high resolution audio mix of the album plus a five minute trailer for the archives set. There’s some funny and interesting banter between songs along with Neil making some anecdotal comments about some of the songs. At one point he even takes requests from the audience. With this CD you get to hear the entire show from beginning to end. Please click here for more information.

Perhaps you were hoping to receive the recently released Dark Knight movie on Blu-ray or DVD this Christmas. By clicking onto our Dark Knight store on Amazon you can find The Dark Knight on DVD, Blu-ray, and special editions (plus other Batman-related products). Find discounts of 25% to 50% off most items.

Maybe you’re just looking for a good book. As you’ve probably already heard, Les Stroud, host of the TV show “Survivorman” on the Discovery Channel, recently announced that he is retiring from the popular series. He has also just released a new book called “Survive!: Essential Skills and Tactics to Get You Out of Anywhere - Alive“.

The book is a practical guide that gives everyday readers a no-nonsense look at the real world of survival. In the book, Stroud offers readers the essential skills and tactics necessary to endure in any corner of the globe, along with a wealth of insider information born of his own experiences in the outdoors. (Only $13.57)

Stroud has also recently released the Survivorman: Collection 2 DVD. This is the full collection of episodes from the second season of the series. As a bonus, the DVD producers also added Stroud’s “Surviving Alaska’ special.
