Grok the Halls: Matt’s X-Mas Files Holiday Tunes Mix!

Grok the Halls: Matt’s X-Mas Files Holiday Tunes Mix!

Dec 08

Hello, all!

This year we’ve put together another month of holiday-related celebrations, Grok the Halls. You may recall our 2008 holiday effort, Jingle Bell Grok, with fondness, fear, or just plain disgust. Well, we’re at it again. Suck it up.

To kick things off, I’m pleased to debut the fifth volume in my endless (and endlessly self-indulgent) holiday music mix series, The X-Mas Files!

As part of the festivities this year, we encourage you to donate a few dollars to Child’s Play, the awesome charitable organization for gamers & geeks that helps put toys, games, and other essentials into hospitals for sick children.

  1. Thanks! I’ve enjoyed your mixes for several years now.

    I’ve made a few of my own too. Not as good as yours, probably, but maybe there’d be something there you might enjoy. Check them at:

    Happy holidays to you all.

  2. Wow, Tom, thanks for checking out my stuff and for the link to yours. They look great. I have some downloading to do! And happy holidays to you and yours as well.
