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.

Norway's Easter double-feature: Alexander Rybak's musical wizardry and the Bike trial wizardry of Thomas Remvik Aasen -NRK-TV's LIVE Påskekveld broadcast from Geilo, Norway Thursday night

Norway's Easter double-feature: Alexander Rybak's musical wizardry and the Bike Trial wizardry of Thomas Remvik Aasen -NRK-TV's LIVE Påskekveld broadcast from Geilo, Norway Thursday night

Be sure to watch the show's introduction to get a sense of the context, but the Mountain Trial Bike segment I want you all to see is from 28:54 to 32:02 and be sure to watch the little boy wearing the teal-colored skullcap at 30:24, who is completely captivated, as later shots show.
Video by Alexander Vollevik Larsen.

It segues perfectly into a short chat between Alexander Rybak and NRK host Caroline Bækkelund Hauge before he plays the song he wrote, Dagdrøm, which concludes Thursday night's telecast.

If you really want to see how ridiculously talented Alexander Rybak is, see him sing and perform in this March 4th, 2012 telecast of SVT's popular "Så ska det låta," which I have referenced here on the blog many times before for obvious reasons. 
The full program was uploaded a month ago -with multiple subtitles, including English- and I finally had some time to watch the whole thing un-distracted -twice- last weekend.
He never disappoints.

Rybak's Facebookies video: Alexander Rybak in "Så ska det låta" - Full program - March 4, 2012. With subtitles!

Thomas Remvik Aasen, April 2012.

Yes, his latest bike trial video was filmed in the same town as what was shown on Thursday's NRK telecast. See his other videos at: http://vimeo.com/user764351 and his bio at: http://www.trialtech.co.uk/rider.php?rider_id=4

The music playing in his most recent video is from Frou Frou - "Let go" which you might remember from, among many other things, Zach Braff's critically received directorial film debut, Garden State, which he also wrote.

From "Garden State"  -the final scene, at the airport between Natalie Portman and Zach Braff. http://youtu.be/iTnzPuFPxPw

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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 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 way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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