So much to review this evening. You folks are working me way too hard.
***New Blogs Alert***
SFDB welcomes Random Pixels and Loose Talk from Miami Beach to the SoFla blogosphere. Bill says...
"I'm a Miami Beach based photojournalist and "writer." Check this page from time to time to see things that may amuse, amaze, shock or digust you. "You pays your money and you takes your chances."I think we all realize he means "disgust." Bill just started blogging this afternoon and he already has 3 posts up. Go check him out.
Thanks to Owenized for the heads up.
A- Critical Miami's slideshow documenting his recent bicycle ride through the Keys is top notch and something you don't want to miss.
B- Miamism has another one of their YouTube videos for us. This time they film the Miami Shores Easter Marshmallow Drop wherein a helicopter drops thousands of marshmallows on to a field and kids and parents go scoop them up. Kinda weird but super amounts of cuteness as the kiddies scurry here and there for the white, mushy globs.
C- Sex and the Beach looks back at her life on Miami Beach as she looks forward to her life on the mainland.
In my time living in this place, I have witnessed lives that were addicted to so many things ... women, addicted to low self-esteem, babies that have been born from this, children that were supposed to validate a shallow life; I've known men addicted to photographs, holding on to the illusory reality of image; I've known people so sullen who were addicted to body types instead of their hearts -- "I can't love you if you don't match up to this specific detail" -- people forever giving themselves a broken heart -- this is what really breaks my heart, actually, this ability we have to make shipwreck even in calm seas -- and yes, I've known people who didn't even know they had broken someone else's heart; I've invested in meaningful yet transient friendships that have been broken suddenly, like a twig snapping off a branch; I've known good businesses that have come and gone, like the bead and coffee shops on Lincoln Road before the gentrification tourism process (hey, it's what Carl Fisher wanted in the first place, so I'm not complaining); I've caught and slaughtered fish; I've known so many superficial details about this place, but damn it, I've also known deeper things -- deeper things running far lower, unfathomable in these shores ... and because of this, I don't regret a breath I've drawn as a citizen of Miami Beach.
D- MenuPages Blog: South Florida is hiring.
E- Any car lover will have sympathy for Bark Bark Woof Woof when they see the pictures of his totaled Mustang.
F- Another bad idea from Florida legislators via Flablog: start school in July!
G- A quick look at the LuminaireX store in the Design District courtesy All Purpose Dark.
H- Coconut Grove Grapevine shows us that Cafe Tu Tu Tango gives patrons a little something extra on Wednesday nights.
I- The Chowfather provides no muss, no fuss coffee shop and Italian ice recommendations in Broward.
J- Local lawyers outsourcing legal work to India? South Florida Lawyers has the story.
