I don't know if any parents read End Hits, but I'd bet there's a few out there. And while Christmas is still a little ways out (although birthdays are anytime!) I've got just one thing to ask you. In fact, I'm begging:

If the kids are asking for Guitar Hero, surprise them with an actual guitar. If they want Rock Band, get 'em some drums. For God's sake, please!

Because if this was my son, I'd probably have to be locked in a padded room...
