Boogie Woogie Santa


A tribute to two great things at this time of year: Santa and Guitar Hero 2. btw, if you're tired of the same ol' Christmas tunes here's a few recommendations: Rev. Horton Heat, Brian Setzer, and Los Straitjackets.

Man that Santa is huge. And he's got style. Nice one again!

Have you bought all christmas presents yet?! Here's another musical recommendation. El Vez, the Mexican Elvis. Saw him in concert once. It was loads of fun! Check out his christmas album.
