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. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

First Aid Kit's newest song -"Blue"- is full of haunting nuance and the video is positively beautiful, featuring actress Ewa Fröling; #FirstAidKitBand

First Aid Kit's newest song -"Blue"- is full of haunting nuance and the video is positively beautiful, featuring actress Ewa Fröling; #FirstAidKitBand

Favorites of the blog, Johanna and Klara Söderberg are back with their third song from their album "The"Lion's Roar" and their very interesting video for "Blue" is as beautiful as it is haunting, a real credit to director Daniel Wirtberg.
You need to pay close attention to detail as you search for more clues of what it all means.

My last blog post about the ridiculously-talented Söderberg sisters and their amazing sound was right before Thanksgiving, in a November 19, 2011 post titled, What's that beautiful sound coming from the woods? Sweet harmony! First Aid Kit - "The Lion's Roar"; Wow!

In that post almost seven months ago, I looked at their tour schedule and lamented that the schedule, STILL with no performances at all in Florida, only served to confirm what we've suspected since we were growing-up down here, and the City of Miami refused to allow concerts at Orange Bowl, which is why Bob Seger and Fleetwood Mac were forced to perform in the Miami Baseball Stadium-cum-mudpit: Must we always be orphans down here, reduced to only watching YouTube videos of genuine new talent?

In case you've forgotten, in Ingmar Bergman's Fanny and Alexander, winner of the 1984 Oscar for Best Foreign Language film, Ewa Fröling played the widowed mother who learned to her regret that her poor taste in men could have VERY NEGATIVE consequences for both her and her two children.

I first saw it in 1983 at the old Plitt Theatre in the-then Turnberry area of NMB, just east of where Loehman's Plaza is now in Aventura, off Biscayne Blvd. 
(A small bookstore that's no longer there is where I bought my first Swedish dictionary while still in high school at NMB.)

As it happens, I watched this great film again about two months ago, which is why her name was right on the tip of my tongue.

My translation on its significance for Hallandale Beach citizens
When your city government doesn't seem to know the difference between the truth and a lie, why do they keep lying instead of keep telling the truth? 
To gain an advantage...

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 now-closed 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. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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