Here it is, folks, your pre-State of the Union evening Sift. You don't know how relieved I am knowing that I won't be throwing shoes at the TV this year.
A- Shorter 26th Parallel...
The SoFla political blogging discourse has gotten a lot more civil now that some Herald columnists are openingly right wing.Yeah, let's all think about why that is.
B- Ipanemic turns his camera on in the middle of the night and captures "Insomnia."
C- MiamiNights drives up to Hollywood, gets lost, but still delivers a post on the TM Sisters' Ideal Tonight show.
The main body of the sho was series of glittery mixed media drawings tied together across the wallspace with dynamic bolts of light( zig-zaggin all over the place), using EL (electro-lumonescent) wire and light emmiting tapes, Giving the space between the works this almost aggressive neon pop, flickering different sequences by the touch of triggers mounted inside a set of couchy seats set facing the major body of works. A bit of a silly kind way at adding an interactive element to a piece that lazy people will trigger (by sitting down). That made me smile.D- Eye on Miami gives us a chuckle with this post today.
E- Miami Beach 411's visit to the Ice Box didnt' really leave them smiling.
Usually in restaurants offering menu items in the $20 range, a server stops by your table a few minutes into your meal to ask you how everything is. This wasn’t the case at the Ice Box Cafe, where the service was leaving me frigid.F- Miami City Diggs takes a look at a 1500 square foot unfinished condo located in The Courts on South Beach that is being listed for...ready for it?...$550K.
G- Local Motion Miami gives us a pretty good preview of the upcoming Miami International Film Festival.
H- Coconut Grove Grapevine is thinking that statutes of cats and dogs would be a perfect addition to the Grove.
Picture these creatures around the Grove. Picture Commdore Plaza and Grand Avenue, that corner is blah, picture a colorful dog or cat on each corner.I- Lots o' new stuff over at Miami Fever's place.
The main problem would be maintenance and vandalism, but it has worked before with the other pieces (cows, flamingos, etc.) so why not these?
J- A Mom, A Blog, and the Life In-Between has a nice post up describing her family trip to Disney this past weekend.
