A new version of the Nutcracker and a new Christmas tradition. The People's Liberation Big Band once again performed their wild-eyed version of the Nutcracker in Kansas City last night. They first unleashed this alternative jazz version with its unusual time signatures and creative re-harmonizations in 2006. One of their next projects is a soundtrack to the 1925 silent film, Battleship Potemkin. I can hardly wait.

One of their many packages is their "Original Cosmonaut Winter Survival Training" in Russia, as pictured above. Oooo, yes! Sign me up! Those blue boots are so worth it.

A departure from his regular Christmas fare, this collection is widely regarded as his "psychedelic" album. Conceived and recorded during his experimentation with hallucinogens.

If you don't need dry cleaning you can see Prince Okwina for a shoe shine
The name is so clever I can't get over it
A dry cleaners that cares more about justice than the rules (this Australian shop thinks its the Clint Eastwood of dry cleaners)
I would dirty my clothes just so I could come see this sign.
....Or this one
No, Really --The r Open
They clean clothes but will they clean their windows?
Kind of going overboard with the "green" concept.
You can't see it from here but there's surely a dry cleaners in there somewhere
Gets the award for best dry cleaners name ever
The only cleaners with a woman encased in glass. Also known as the WTF? cleaners
Have pants will travel
The dry cleaners that wishes it were a nightclub
Appeals to customers who can't settle on one color scheme
Dry cleaning with a little tongue
When only the very best will do
