Like last year, we're gonna count down the finest South Florida releases of the past 12 months. Many of them have received some attention via this blog, and some of them have received ridiculous amounts of attention.
This list comes from a whole lot of slouching in my office chair in our Fort Lauderdale office with earbud headphones in -- a nicer pair of iPod headphones got stolen -- and a mind open to the possibilities of the myriad styles that reside comfortably at the beach, in the warehouse, at the Snooze, on the Florida Turnpike, and all of the above. With the help of our resourceful and brainy staff of freelancers, this list is going on! For the next two weeks, we'll be adding links to all of the entries below.
