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.

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)


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
