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.

Begging Me -First song from Florrie's new six-track EP out two weeks from today, June 14th

Florrie - Begging Me (2011)

Some of you who come to the blog fairly regularly -and esp. those of you who have a highly-tuned pop sensibility that more closely mirrors my own than your friends' or that of the town you live in- have already dropped me an email or two (or ten) asking why I've been so slow to post this first song video from the second Florrie Arnold EP -six-tracks!- which drops two weeks from today, June 14th, when it's been on so many other websites already.
Good question.

Mostly, it's because I wanted to wait 'till this weekend since my intuition has always been that the original release date announced, in late May, would not prove practical for one reason or another.
I guessed right, too, since the news about the release date change came a week ago today in a post by Florrie herself at her website, ending
There will be more news coming over the next few days as it gets closer to the new deadline :) Sorry that you guys have to wait a bit longer, but I promise it'll be worth it!

Since I last posted on her back on March 5th, 2011 in a post titled, Say hello to Florrie - She's musically ship-shape in Bristol fashion, always equipped with a beat & melody -and has a voice & face you won't forget, I've come across her very useful BBC artist page, which has links to all of her various appearances on the myriad channels of the BBC mother-ship, national and local.

Earlier this month Florrie was the cover subject of the Sunday Times Style supplement and someone, perhaps one of the perceptive management consultants she uses, even was smart enough to see the wisdom and humor of snapping a photo of her reading the magazine with just one eye peering above the magazine.

Check out that March post of mine out and then check the following for more info on this amazing dynamo:
Florrie's official website, where you listen to her introductory EP, with FREE downloads:

And we'll now end this post with her song from last year that still pops into my head every week at the strangest of times. Where was this song when I was at IU and could've used it?

#HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang w/Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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. ��
