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, Europe 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.

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.

Me in the Summer of 2016

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. :-(
