Honor thy Godfather. Tomorrow, on December 25th, we honor the 5th anniversary of the passing of our beloved Godfather, who was born in a simple shack, only to die and be resurrected numerous times. Please take a moment this Christmas to remember him, and let his spirit fill you up, as you shake your moneymaker. Confess!

Wow - indeed - the "tomorrow" link was amazing - I'm not a fan of long YouTube videos, but that was soooo worth it.

ps - one of the best workout songs EVER is his live version of "Superbad"
