I was surprised when flicking trough tv remote control and stopped at SBS and this Eurovision 2012 flash came up with Anggun, one of my favorite Indonesian singer in the 80s-90s, was on one of it. She was huge back in Indonesia and then migrated to France and decided to change nationality and become one of Europe’s top singer. Not that I care much about Eurovision but this one is bit special because Anggun was there. What made it more interesting to me was at the end of the performance she said ‘Thank you, Terimakasih’ instead of “Merci’ as she was representing her current nationality, France. Not sure if she did it in purpose or just slip of tongue but that was cool. :D. She didnt win tough, Sweden did but she is still top singer for me.
Here is her performance at the Eurovision 2012 with “You and I (Echo)” and also one of her first performance in Indonesia, the song that made her one of my favorite female singer in Indonesia.
Anggun in Eurovision 2012 representing France:
Anggun, my favorite song and video clip that I grew up with:
Caine is a 9-year old boy who spends his summer weekend at his dad’s used autoparts in East LA. Caine created an elaborate arcade games with his dad’s cardboard and offered it to any one who passed by to play with him, unfortunately, because his dad’s business is done trough ebay and no longer depend on walk in customer so Caine’s Arcade was not so lucky with customers. And then one day a film maker, Nirvan Mullick, who were looking for a door handle for his 96 Corolla saw this Caine’s Arcade decided to played it and he had a great fun and amazed with the boy’s creativity. He then came back to the shop and talk to Caine’s dad when he was not there and asked if he could make a short movie about this adorable boy.
The movie was brilliantly done with a great music and it went viral. I could not stop watching and always curious following the story development. In the website, cainesarcade.com, they open donation for Caine’s college fund with paypal and was initially targeted for $25,000 and then rised to $100,000 and as per today it reaches over $160,000. Good luck with the college Caine and congratulations for inspiring millions of kids all over the world.
