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.

If Miriam Bryant isn't on your musical radar yet, she ought to be ;) Miriam Bryant - Push Play (Official), Finders Keeper (Official); @MiriamBryant

Push, play, stop, rewind, you drown your heroes in red wine...

The person featured in Miriam's video is Swedish actor Krister Henriksson, who has portrayed police detective "Kurt Wallander" in Swedish TV films based on Henning Mankell's novels for many, many years.


His latest one came out in January and is called "Den orolige mannen" (The anxious man).

Yes, there's always something nefarious going on in Ystad!


Here's Miriam's amazing first single from last year...so catchy!

Miriam's Unplugged version of this song is at: http://youtu.be/elj3JZLWMC4
You'll definitely want to check that out because it's in Black & White, just like the keys of a piano, which is the initial establishing shot of the vid and quite clever.

Miriam, who's from Göthenberg, had a gig on Friday in Tranås at Babar, as did another young singing dynamo from Gävle whom I've been keeping close tabs on by the name of Cecilia Nilsson or See See -a.k.a. Cissi Nilsson- pictured below, whom I'll be writing about in more detail soon.
So much sheer musical talent in Sweden, it's hard to believe sometimes! 

If you're reading this in Sweden, you should be able to purchase a physical copy of the CD at most Åhléns Dept. Stores
If you're in Stockholm, I'd first try the one in Södermalm at Ringvägen 100below, on the corner of Götgatan, on the south side of the street and across the street from the Skanstull 
T-BanaIt's on the first floor on the southeast side, past their large cosmetics area. 
That's where I bought my Jill Johnson "A Woman can Chage her Mind" CD in January. ;)

Above, looking southwest on an overcast Saturday afternoon -temps about 20° F- towards the Åhléns Dept. Store in Södermalm, with the Hemköp grocery store in its basement that I frequented at the beginning of my trip to Stockholm. Though you can't tell it from this photo, this is the southern end of the always-bustling Götgatan commercial center that's the spine of Södermalm -and the bottom part of U-shaped Ringvägen that largely connects almost everything in Södermalm.
It's one of my favorite parts of Stockholm, in large part because it's the perfect combination of intelligent mixed-use zoning in action, with interesting commercial/retail use below or next to residential. It's a real living place with a beating heartbeat and sense of place, and you feel that spirit when you walk around, too. I know that I did.
It's not just some abstract hope for a place with a sense of community written on a prospectus for a planned development, like you see all the time here in South Florida. January 12, 2013 photo by South Beach Hoosier.© 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

#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!✨ ������
