Spending Another Break with Godzilla. Happy Holidays!

24 Dec

GodzillaChristmasTreeWe are wishing everyone a Happy Kaiju-sized Holiday! As this year comes to a close, we will be taking break to recharge. Postings will resume after the New Year and we will offer up lists in what to look forward to in 2023 (and play catch up on what was released the week prior).

Plus, Chinese New Year will be coming sooner than later, and we’ll glance at what’s coming for that celebration too.

In the meantime, please rock out to our favourite heavy metal song to acknowledge the coming of December 25th. We even put together a small mixtape of our favourites which can be viewed/heard on YouTube here.
