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.

Take a seat aboard the ferry and listen to what real music talent sounds like: Sea Lion - "America, why does the heart cry" via the Stockholm Boat Sessions and Tom Jerry Boman, @tomjerryboman

Naturally, this blog of mine, having the sort of sensibility that it does, where when and if I'm doing things as intended here, everything just seems to flow together and write itself, my last post on a new music video from Russia brings to mind yet another music video recorded on water that I've been sitting on for a few months, albeit one recorded on something considerably slower than a cigarette boat festooned with bikini-clad eye candy, living the high-life while zooming around on Biscayne Bay and the Miami River with the Miami skyline in the background.

By that I reference my March 12, 2012 post titled, "It's like a tourism ad for Miami: DJ M.E.G. - Moscow to California ft. Сергей Лазарев & Тимати - Moscow to California -with a water pit-stop in Miami!" featuring a video that has to be seen to be believed.

Today's post and video at the top is one that I've been saving up for a bit features a very talented artist from Göteborg named Linn Osterberg, who records under the name "Sea Lion," not unlike the wonderfully-talented Anni Berhard, whom I've been so totally agog about since finding out about last year, who records under the nom-de-disque, "Full of Keys." 

(More news on Anni soon, whom I hope to see when I'm in Stockholm!)

The video at the top of this post is of Osterberg -playing guitar- singing an acoustic version of the song "America, why does the heart cry" on board a ferry ship in Stockholm with her very talented friend and fellow artist, Therese Svensson, while other passengers listen along.

It was recorded as part of the imaginative Stockholm Boat Sessions video series, http://www.stockholmboatsessions.se/


That series of musical videos is something that I have been enjoying for a while now via YouTube, wondering, as usual, why something that is by turns both simple AND clever, doesn't/can't/won't happen in South Florida, where we actually have the weather and resources to do it almost year round, esp. in the Ft. Lauderdale area or along the Intracoastal ot Biscayne Bay between Miami and South Beach.  

Forget about July, though!!!

Hmm-m... so why haven't there been a series of performances recorded on the Staten Island Ferry going back and forth to Manhattan, with the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline behind them? Just a thought.

Ladies and Gentleman, without further adieu, say hello to Sea Lion. 

By the way, as of today, with the 8 tracks going for 60 SEK, and with a U.S. dollar getting you about  6.7471 Swedish kronor, well, you do the math.

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
