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. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

And then I go and spoil it all, by saying something stupid like "I love you" -Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman - Something Stupid; Rabbit Hole trailer



Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman - Something Stupid (with lyrics)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_x128zrYzcE


Completely out of nowhere, I actually thought of this song -and this charming version- after walking out of the Broward IG selection meeting this afternoon in downtown Fort Lauderdale, and by the time I was driving past the airport, I was "in the zone."

And no matter how bad the traffic was, I just kept smiling and singing.

Such is the unrelenting magnetic power of Nicole Kidman
...

As I've stated before, there are parts of true genius Baz Luhrmann's La Moulin Rouge that are among the most imaginative and brilliantly conceived things I've seen on film in the past forty years. And they all have the fair Nicole in them!

(He's slated to re-do The Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan.)

It's weird to say aloud, or put down on paper, but as famous and respected as Nicole Kidman is, I still fervently believe that most film-goers still take her immense talent for granted.

I fully expect her to win the Oscar for Best Actress on the 27th for Rabbit Hole.

Old School version of Something Stupid
I recall hearing this record playing over-and-over at the nursery school I attended in Memphis when I was six.

The owner really loved Sinatra, which is why most of his songs were in my head by osmosis before I was seven!


I even remember which songs had scratches and skipped a bit because she'd pick up the needle and plop it down to play the same song over!




Frank & Nancy Sinatra, -
Something Stupid

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and 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 now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
