Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Taylor Swift's impression of "Minnesota Soccer Mom" on BBC 1's Switch with Annie and Nick; Dateline: On Tour With Taylor Swift; @taylorswift13

Taylor Swift's impression of "Minnesota Soccer Mom" on BBC1's "Switch with Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw"

impression begins at 0:51

I've been meaning to post this clip for awhile now since it's so clear that Taylor is channeling Frances McDormand's Oscar-winning turn as Marge Gunderson in "Fargo" that so captured the nation's imagination.

I'm not entirely sure that everyone in the Radio One studio with Taylor caught that, though.



Over the Memorial Day Weekend of 2009, May 31st to be exact, I watched the NBC News Dateline one-hour special on Taylor promoting her Fearless CD, titled simply, "On Tour With Taylor Swift"

It was amazing, and only served to confirm what I have thought about her from the very beginning
-she's the very definition of "the real deal."

Anyone who doubts her talent, drive and resolve is simply ignoring what is right in front of them. That Taylor's only 20 makes it all seem a bit stranger, true, but as was proven over-and-over in this particular show, and which has been said about her for years by very talented people in Nashville in a position to know from past experince, her confident demeanor, work ethic and level-headedness -which makes her seem much more mature than many if not most entertainers who are twice her age- also makes her more able to grasp the great possibilities that are her's for the taking.

And is there any entertainer right now who connects more with their audience than Taylor does? These videos hardly begin to tell the tale of her fans devotion to her.

That she combines such a keen and growing talent with such a relentless drive to satisfy her fans, each and every night, knowing that they've been looking forward to those few hours together with her for months, makes her the kind of old-fashioned star that people held onto most loyally, year-after-year.
Plus, Taylor's audience will NEVER outgrow her.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, out of what seems like the tens of thousands that I've actually seen, despite the fact that you can't actually see her truly amazing smile or dazzling beauty. But trust me, you know that it's there! An even more amazing photo when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to just get to this particular spot. At Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. ��
