I've been wanting to do a Hanukkah post, but the time sorta slipped by. In the end, I thought that this post would cover Christmas as well, a klezmer take on one of the iconic Christmas works, The Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky. Shirim is an orchestra made up of members of Naftule's Dream, one of the finest groups working in the new Jewish music movement.
I didn't want to tell everyone what I wanted for this holiday, as I felt like that would take the surprise and fun out of it. But, since I still have received anything, I imagine that's a result of uncertainty on what to get the man who has it all. By all, I mean a blog, some vinyl and not a whole lot else. Here are 8 suggestions for those who wish to wish Pound for Pound a Happy Hanukah.
1. A pair of jeans that fit
2. Air Max 1 Kid Robots or Tier 0
3. Scarlett Johansson
4. A mixer
5. The end of 2006
7. Scarlett Johansson
8. More readers and comments at Pound for Pound!
