Sophie Koh – Oh My Garden

Sophie Koh - Oh My GardenIn the world of music it’s pretty hard to find new talent. Sometimes that new talent, isn’t really new, but just hasn’t hit it big yet. For those of us here in the United States, we miss out on a lot of artist who aren’t shown to us. That’s right, we hear what is advertised to us for the most part. However, if you are lucky enough to be someone who listens to Indie music, you may have perhaps herd of Sophie Koh, a very talented Australian artist. To celebrate the release and pre-order of her new album, Oh My Garden, an awesome new music video has been unveiled for her song I Understand. If you haven’t herd of her, don’t miss out any longer, we have a really cool song by her right here for you to enjoy. Don’t let this simplistic song and video fool you, the song is very emotional and meaningful, and the video is breathtaking if you give it the chance and watch it all the way to the end. It literally is one of the coolest music videos we have seen in a very long time. It doesn’t take millions of dollars in flashy lights and computer animation to make a memorable music video, and that is proven true here. It just takes thought. So that you don’t get your mind completely blown by the water effect later on in the music video, we have included the behind the scenes and making video for you to enjoy.

Black Friday 2011

So many of you are preparing for a sleepless night at the stores in regards to your Black Friday shopping. Well, I am here with a little advice that could possibly save you the crowds, sleep, and a nice chunk of change! Amazon.com has already started their Pre-Black Friday sales, and their deals are nothing short of enticing. This is Amazon’s way of drawing you to their site on a daily basis leading up to Black Friday itself. The main thing to remember is that while these deals are pretty good (ex. Buy a PS3 get a $50 Amazon.com credit) you may still find some of the deals on things such as DVD’s and music to be better when Amazon begins their actual Black Friday deals. To be honest the deal on select game systems where you get a free $50 Amazon credit to use on pretty much anything, except most digital content, is almost too good to pass up.

So how do we propose that you avoid the Black Friday madness this year? Check out the online Black Friday deals, because you may just be surprised at how much time you will save and of course avoiding the crowds is always nice! Amazon.com seems to be the place to look this year for amazing deals this holiday season. You will probably find many websites that have much better deals than the stores do this year, just make sure you are online at the right times because some of them only run deals certain times of the day or until their supply is all bought out. So save time, money, and enjoy the holidays a little more this year by doing your Black Friday shopping online!
