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.

The Söderberg sisters come to the rescue of our Summer boredom! "First Aid Kit" performs 'Emmylou' LIVE at 2013 Glastonbury Festival (HD); Dancing Barefoot; Paul Krugman finally "gets" @FirstAidKitBand and promptly falls for them -hard!

More heavenly harmonies from Sweden's Klara and Johanna Söderberg.

I've waited a few days in posting this because there were so many legal problems associated with the BBC's telecast of this performance that the videos were being pulled and yanked off of YouTube almost as quickly as they were being uploaded.
Frankly, I didn't want to have to play a game of 'Musical Chairs' again -get it- and constantly need to be double-checking this post and replacing one embed code for another as various versions get yanked like falling dominoes. 

Me, I prefer that when I place a video here on the blog -unless it's something from SVT or TV4.se that tells you upfront that it'll only be available for viewing for a finite period of time- that the video stays put and doesn't migrate somewhere.


Klara and Johanna even posted a non-BBC version via their twitter feed and it got pulled down, too. In fact, here's that tweet from Monday:



But patience pays off for you the faithful blog reader, even though you didn't know what was going on behind the scenes, as blog YouTube fave 2Shaymcn, ace Abba and Swedish and British music lover and chronicler, one of the first people I ever subscribed to when I got my YouTube account years ago, has come to the rescue once again, via the vid up top.

I noticed right before watching "Key Largo" for the millionth time on Turner Classic Movies on Saturday night that liberal economist and N.Y. Times columnist Paul Krugman mentioned in a new post that he has officially and finally fallen for Klara and Johanna, finally "gets" them, after hearing their cover of Patti Smith's "Dancing Barefoot "at the 2011 Polar Music Prize award telecast honoring her and Kronos Quartet.

Here's another video of them performing "Emmylou" LIVE in Nashville that I'd meant to post here before I left for Stockholm in January.
It was done for MTV USA's The Big and Best of 2012. Uploaded December 12, 2012

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

Thumbs up! What a night we had! #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!✨ ������
