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. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

Hallandale Beach in 2011: the Jedward of Broward County -potential, even great promise in the future, but so very strange and inexplicable right now
Jedward - Lipstick - Ireland's entry in the 2011 Eurovision Sing Contest in May in Düsseldorf, Germany
I've got some music-related posts in the blog freezer waiting to be defrosted in the next couple of weeks, but this particular video is actually one that I've been wanting to post here for a while, ever since I came up with this subject line after watching this video of Jedward for about the tenth time this year: Hallandale Beach in 2011: the Jedward of Broward County -potential, even great promise in the future, but so very strange and inexplicable right now.
You'll swear that you haven't seen anything like this since 1987...
You went back to Bloomington for a weekend visit from your new home in Chicago, spoke to your sweet and oh-so gorgeous Pi Phi friend Inga on the phone -who had an extra ticket to the IU basketball game- and while you were killing time over at the Student Union, waiting to meet Inga later in front of Assembly Hall, you saw some guys with hair styles like this who who thought they were some new cool version of either:
a.) A Flock of Seagulls,
or, b.) The Stray Cats,
c.) some bastardized Frankenstein's Monster hybrid of the two.
And all you could do was shake your head and laugh.
Or was I the only one who saw them?

A YouTube viewer comment below the video referred to them as "Dublin Muppets!"
