Despicable Me: The Box Office Animation Movie



Despicable Me is a 2010 American computer-animated 3-D feature film from Universal Studios and Illumination Entertainment that was released on July 9, 2010 in the United States with considerable critical and financial success. The film stars Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Julie Andrews, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, and Miranda Cosgrove.

The story is of a supervillain named Gru who plans to use three orphan girls as pawns for a grand scheme, only to find that their innocent love is profoundly changing him.

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon, yes, the moon.

Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world's greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

No matter how dubious this second coming of 3-D is starting to smell. Compared with the restrained sophistication of Pixar's approach to the technology, and in sharp contrast to such murky, hacky live-action conversion jobs as "Clash of the Titans" and "The Last Airbender," here is a product — turned out by a French animation house, written by the team behind "College Road Trip" and " Horton Hears a Who!" — determined to give cheeseball 3-D blatancy a good name.

The second, more openly sentimental half. Ask any three people what "Despicable Me" is about, and no matter how many teasers or trailers they may have seen, they'll have a hard time bluffing.

Genres: Comedy, Kids/Family and Animation
Running Time: 1 hr. 28 min.
Release Date: July 9th, 2010 (wide)
Distributors: Universal Pictures
U.S. Box Office: $118,434,555
Starring: Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Elsie Fisher, Ken Jeong Directed by: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Pierre Coffin Produced by: Nina Rappaport-Rowan, Sergio Pablos, Christopher Meledandri

Daniel Schorr was died at 93

Longtime journalist Daniel Schorr dies at age 93
Veteran broadcast journalist Daniel Schorr died at a Washington hospital Friday morning, according to National Public Radio. Schorr was 93.

Schorr, who began as a foreign newspaper correspondent in 1946, helped launch CNN as its senior Washington correspondent in 1980 after two decades with CBS. NPR, which Schorr joined as senior news analyst in 1985, said he died peacefully after a short illness.

His coverage put him on Richard Nixon's infamous "enemies list."

Remembering Daniel Schorr, his fellow leaker Daniel Ellsberg noted that they each had been confronted with questions about motivation and profit.

In 1976, Schorr leaked the Pike report — the findings of an Intelligence Committee investigation into questionable CIA activities, which the House had voted to keep secret — to the Village Voice. Schorr asked the Voice to make a donation to the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.

Even Schorr asking for a donation from the Voice raised questions about whether he had profited financially from his leak. He hadn't. But the transaction may have cost Schorr anyway.

At the time, Schorr accused the Reporters Committee, which had put him in touch with a lawyer to aid publication of the report in book form, of having blown his cover.

Schorr covered the rebuilding of Western Europe for the Christian Science Monitor starting in 1946. He joined Edward R. Murrow's CBS news team as its Washington diplomatic correspondent in 1953.

Schorr resigned from CBS in 1976 after the network suspended him amid a controversy over the leaking of a secret U.S. intelligence report. Schorr refused to tell Congress the source of the document, citing his First Amendment protections.

CNN founder Ted Turner hired Schorr in 1979 as he was preparing to launch the Cable News Network the next summer. Schorr quit CNN in 1985 and soon joined NPR.

Many award had he get, included a Peabody for "a lifetime of uncompromising reporting of the highest integrity," three Emmys and the duPont-Columbia Golden Baton.

The Expendables is Sylvester Stallone's new movie is about a band of mercenaries led by Barney Ross (Stallone), who are led on what they're told is a covert, CIA-funded mission to overthrow the dictator of a South American country. In reality, it's a trick; they were sent on a suicide mission.

As of this writing, Sylvester Stallone represents not one, but three trending topics on Twitter. In order, "CALA BOCA SYLVESTER STALLONE", "Stallone", and just plain old "SYLVESTER" appear on Twitter.

Lindsay Lohan's Reaction to Jail

Lindsay Lohan's Reaction to Jail
The star of “Mean Girl” Lindsay Lohan has been slammed with these charges because she violated the terms of her probation following the DUI arrests back in 2007. Lohan has been found with cocaine in her car and she has attempted Rehab several times, only to continually fall off the wagon. It appears as though Revel was tired of Lohan not following through on her promises.

Because of that Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail by a Lon Angeles Judge on Tuesday. Judge Marsha Revel sentenced her with the 90-days in jail, to be follow by a mandatory 90 days in an in-patient rehab facility. This is a much heavier sentence then the “slap on the wrist” Lohan was reported to be expecting to get.


Lindsay Lohan's Reaction to Jail

Although the judge was strict and Lindsey was tearful, there is debate as to whether she will serve the 90 days or not. This is not Lohan’s first time behind bars. She got a 24-hour sentence at the women’s Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, CA 3 years ago. She only served 84 minutes of that sentence.

Stan Goldman, a Loyola law professor, said Lohan’s celebrity status clearly helped get her many second chances not given to other offenders in the court system. Goldman said she dodged probation violations for several years as her attorney managed to keep her out of jail despite her probation being extended for failing to complete alcohol education classes in a timely manner.

Michelle Obama’s Evolution

Michelle Obama's style continues to command attention from fashion lovers everywhere. Given her record, we predict 2010 will be another big year for the First Lady. She kicked off January with a brand-new bob, induced panic by layering a long-sleeve tee underneath a Narciso Rodriguez sheath, and made a fashion statement when she wore an Alexander McQueen blouse the same week of his passing.

She also appeared in her seasoned favorites, from Jason Wu to Thakoon to Talbots. Click ahead to check out everything she's worn in 2010. And check out all of her looks from 2008-2009.

Michelle Obama recently unveiled a new haircut. The change was somewhat subtle, but she cut enough off for those of us obsessed with her style to have a mild fit. Cathy Horyn calls the new do "rounder, more managed."

Michelle Obama’s Evolution

She added, "One might be tempted to call the style an updated version of the classic Washington helmet," but noted Michelle Obama has tried many styles over the course of Barack's presidential campaign and presidency.

She began with side bangs, grew them out late last year, and now is on to what we'll call her mom bob because we think it flatters her, and calling it a helmet implies it never moves or blows in the wind or does anything interesting even after the help of heat styling.

But it does all of those things! Michelle is already experimenting with styling her new mom bob and looks to be having fun with it, as any woman with a chic new haircut should.

After the family vacation in Hawaii, where a smooth, practical knot seemed to work, Michelle Obama has emerged with a new hairstyle. It looks shorter, rounder, more managed. One might be tempted to call the style an updated version of the classic Washington helmet.

Mrs. Obama has tried a number of styles, their common theme a polished look that keeps the hair off her face. The style she wore around the Inaugural was somewhat longer and sportier, with bangs to one side. She did a glamorous version of that look for different events in April and May. Late in 2009, the bangs seemed to vanish.

KLa Project Dengan Lagu Sepanjang Masa



Kalo bicara tentang Jogjakarta atau inget segala sesuatu kenangan tentang kota Gudeg itu, tentu ingatan kita juga tak lepas dari lagu yang melegenda, lagu yang menceritakan kota istimewa itu : JOGJAKARTA.

Alunan musiknya simple, syairnya romantis, musiknya lembut, itulah ciri khas musik yang diusung oleh KLa Project.

Awalnya saya gak terlalu ngeh sama Band yang beranggotakan 3 bapak-bapak ganteng ini, kecuali satu lagu di atas tadi. Tapi Bapak dan ibu saya adalah KLanis (penggemar berat KLa Project), punya koleksi lengkap lagu-lagunya. Dan setelah di dengerin..hmmm..not bad-lah..

Romantis abis..

KLa dibentuk oleh Katon, Lilo, Adi, dan Ari pada tahun 1988 di daerah Tebet, Jakarta. Mereka merilis album pertamanya "KLa" pada tahun 1989 yang mencetak hits seperti Rentang Asmara, Tentang Kita, Waktu Tersisa, dan Laguku.

Pada tahun 1991, KLa meluncurkan album keduanya bertajuk "Kedua" di mana terdapat lagu monumental Yogyakarta. Sementara album ketiga (Pasir Putih - 1992) mereka mencetak hits seperti Tak Bisa Ke Lain Hati dan Belahan Jiwa.

Setelah peluncuran album ketiga, Ari Burhani keluar dan beralih peran sebagai manajer band. KLa kemudian berjalan dengan formasi tiga orang dan menetaskan dua album, Ungu (1994) dan V (1995).

Pada bulan Maret 2001, giliran Lilo yang keluar dari band ini. Namun KLa tetap berjalan terus walau hanya menyisakan Katon dan Adi. Kemudian tahun 2003, KLa memutuskan untuk menambah tiga orang personel baru, yaitu Erwin Prasetya, Yoel Vai dan Hari Goro. Nama mereka pun berubah menjadi NuKLa. NuKLa sempat mengeluarkan satu album pada tahun 2004 yang bertajuk "New Chapter". Namun kayanya kurang sukses di pasaran.

Citra KLa kian meredup, dan akhirnya mereka memutuskan untuk mengadakan reuni dengan ditandai diluncurkannya album KLa Returns yang beranggotakan tiga anggota awal mereka: Katon, Lilo, dan Adi pada tahun 2009.

Berikut ini, Diskografi KLa Project :

• 1989 - KLa
• 1990 - Kedua
• 1992 - Pasir Putih
• 1994 - Ungu
• 1995 - Kelima

Harumnya D’ Cinnamon


Tak banyak group music di Indonesia yang mengusung aliran Country. Mereka lebih suka memilih aliran Pop atau Rock. Selain penggemarnya tak banyak, aliran music Country kadang dianggap kuno dan kesannya kurang merakyat di telinga.

JIka pendahulu music country yang cukup kenamaan ada Rita Ruby Hartland, Franky and Jane, kini ada salah satu Group Music yang juga mengusung aliran Music Country. Dialah : D’ Cinnamon.

Pada awalnya D’Cinnamon yang digawangi oleh 3 orang 2 cewe dan 1 cowo yaitu : Dodo (lead vocal and rhythms), Bona (lead guitar and vocal), and Laut (acoustic bass and vocal). Debut awal mereka, Good Morning, dirilis pada bulan September 2007 dengan lagu andalan, “Loving You”.

Kelompok yang terbentuk sejak tahun 2004 itu akhirnya tinggal 2 orang yaitu Dodo (lead vocal and rhythms), Bona (lead guitar and vocal) sejak tahun 2008. Lagu-lagu mereka cukup apik, terutama lagu-lagu lama yang diarransir ulang salah satunya yang cukup popular adalah : Galih dan Ratna.

Karena keunikan musiknya, D’Cinnamon mendapatkan tempat tersendiri di hati penggemarnya. Penampilan Bona yang keren dan chic ditambah permainan gitar acoustic Dodo merupakan perpaduan yang apik dan serasi.

Berikut ini Discography D’ Cinnamon.

Tahun 2007 Album Good Morning.

1. Ku Yakin Cinta
2. MayDay I'm In Love
3. Loving You
4. Super Girl
5. 5. Tak Takut
6. I.M.U.L

10. So Would You Let Me Be...
11. Selamanya Cinta... (OST Cintapucino)

Malam Biru bersama Shandy Sundoro



Bagi penggemar music Jazz, nama Shandy Sundoro tentunya tak asing lagi. Berkat kepiawaiannya memainkan gitar dan melantunkan lagu-lagu Jazz dengan suaranya yang khas Shandy Sundoro cukup ngetop di kalangan pecinta music Jazz.

Mungkin tak banyak yang tahu, bahwa Shandy Sundoro mengawali karier menyanyinya justru bukan dari tanah air. Tapi dari daratan Eropa, tepatnya Negara Jerman tahun 2007.

Pria asal Ciputat, Jakarta, kelahiran tahun 1973 dan lahir dari keluarga dengan latar belakang musik yang kuat, itu datang ke Berlin untuk melanjutkan studinya di jurusan arsitektur. Berawal dari keinginan memiliki kerja sampingan untuk membiayai kuliahnya di Berlin, menurut Shandy, membuatnya menjadi musisi jalanan.

Karir musik Shandy di Berlin meningkat dan banyak dikenal publik Jerman sejak tampil di salah satu acara televisi nasional Jerman ProSieben pada 2007.

Selain itu, karir musiknya semakin cemerlang sejak mengikuti kompetisi bakat internasional di kawasan Eropa Timur, New Wave 2009, dan berhasil menjadi juara pertama bersama kontestan dari Ukraina.

Sejak kemenangannya di ajang New Wave 2009, Shandy disibukkan dengan penampilan di televisi dan tur keliling Eropa, hingga akhirnya ia bergabung dengan Sony Music setelah perusahaan rekaman itu melihat konsernya secara langsung pada Juni lalu.

Shandy Sundoro akhirnya meluncurkan album di Indonesia di bawah label Sony Music tahun 2010. Album tersebut merupakan kompilasi yang mengangkat lagu-lagu jazz yang mudah dinikmati, dan Shandy membawakan dua lagu karyanya sendiri yang bertajuk Malam Biru (Kasihku) dan End Of The Rainbow.

Shandy berharap pecinta musik di tanah air dapat menyukai dan menerimanya dengan baik. Namun demikian, ia mengaku masih ingin berkarir di Berlin sehingga tidak akan tinggal di Indonesia dalam waktu dekat ini.


Malam Biru

By : Shandy Sundoro

Suatu malam yang biru tanpa dirimu
Berjuta juta Rindu ku padamu
Sendiri ku pun harus menikmati
Nyanyian sang rembulan

Engkau yang seharusnya disisiku
Engkau yang slalu ada dihayatku
Semoga kau mendengar lagu ini
Yang ku cipta untukmu

chorus:

Oh kasihku

Ini ini laguku hanya untuk dirimu
Tanda cintaku padamu oh sayang

Engkau yang seharusnya disisiku
Engkau yang slalu ada dihayatku
Semoga kau mendengar lagu ini
Yang ku cipta untukmu

Robert Pattinson Dalam “Remember Me”






Bagi anda penggemar Film Twilight dan New Moon The Twilight Saga pasti gak asing lagi dengan nama dan wajah dari Robert Pattinson. Aktor ganteng ini kini tengah membintangi Film terbarunya yang berjudul : REMEMBER ME.




Berbeda dengan Film-film sebelumnya, kali ini Robert Pattinson bukan berperan menjadi remaja manis nan romantis, tapi sebagai Tyler Hawkins, seorang remaja pemberontak yang harus berkali-kali berurusan dengan Polisi. Robert Pattinson dalam film ini bermain dengan aktris Emilie De Ravin yang berperan sebagai Ally Craig dan Aktor Senior Pierce Brosnan sebagai Charles Hawkins sang Ayah dari Tyler Hawkins.






Di kisahkan seorang remaja bernama Tyler Hawkins (Robert Pattinson) yang menjadi Brutal semenjak kematian adiknya Charoline (Ruby Jerins) akibat bunuh diri. Tyler menyalahkan sang ayah, Charles Hawkins sebagai kematian adiknya akibat kata-katanya yang menyebutkan "All of his children will someday hang themselves."

Bersama sahabatnya Aidan (Tate Ellington), Tyler selalu berbuat kerusuhan yang membuatnya berurusan dengan polisi terutama Polisi yang bernama Neil Craig (Chris Cooper). Tapi sayangnya Tyler malahan jatuh cinta pada putri Neil Craig, Ally Craig (Emilie de Ravin) seorang mahasiswa mahasiswa NYU yang juga saksi atas pembunuhan ibunya sepuluh tahun silam. Di akhir cerita, dikisahkan akhirnya Tyler berdamai dengan ayahnya Charles Hawkins.






Menurut Para Kritikus, film ini cukup bagus, kerena memancarkan seni acting yang alami dari Robert Pattinson. Dari alur ceritapun cukup bermutu, meski kadang terkesan agak cengeng. Namun yang patut diacungi jempol, bahwa Film ini juga masuk Box Office di Amerika Serikat.

Five Minutes ; Berawal Dari Band Bersarung


Sebenernya saya bukanlah seorang Fiver (Fans Berat Five Minutes) sejati. Tapi karena saya fans berat Vocalist Band yang digawangi Ricky Tjahyadi ini yaitu Richie Setiawan atau yang lebih akrab saya panggil Aa’ Richie (halah….sok akrab deh) maka gak ada salahnya saya buat postingan tentang Five Minutes ini.

Saya inget, sewaktu kecil dulu…

Ada sebuah Band yang personilnya mirip orang lagi sunatan. Pake sarung semua. Lagunya bagus dan keren. Yang paling saya tahu lagunya adalah “ Selamat Tinggal”. Tapi karena kostumnya lebih mirip orang kondangan itu, maka Band Five Minutes menjadi Band yang Unik. Apalagi masa itu belum banyak Band yang bermunculan seperti menjamurnya Band sekarang ini.

Tapi lama banget Band ini Vacum, sementara banyak Band-Band baru bermunculan bak jamur di musim hujan. Kepopuleran Five Minutes kian lama kian meredup.

Hingga akhirnya pada tahun 2007 dengan album Rockmantic, Five Minutes kembali muncul dengan formasi Baru yaitu : Richie (vokal), Roelhilman (gitar), dan Aria Yudhistira (drum) menggantikan Sanny sang vokalis dan Sonny (gitaris) mengundurkan diri. Hingga terbentuklah Formasi yang sampai sekarang tetap solid Five Minutes digawangi oleh Ricky Tjahyadi (keyboard), Richie Setiawan (vokal), Drie Warnanta (bass), Roelhilman (gitar), dan Aria Yudhistira (drum).



Meski kemunculan Five Minutes kali ini tanpa bersarung lagi, ternyata penggemar lama Five Minutes tetap setia menunggu lagu-lagu terbarunya.

Lagi yang paling saya suka dari Five Minutes tuh, Semakin Ku Kejar Semakin Kau Jauh. Syairnya keren, dan walaupun lagu tentang cinta yang tak sampai sama sekali tak berkesan cengeng. Tapi yang paling saya suka lagi adalah karena yang nyanyi pacar saya tercinta : Aa’ Richie nan ganteng sekaleee…

Berikut ini diskrogafi Five Minutes :
• Five Minutes (1996)
• Five Minutes 2 (1997)
• Ouw! (2002)
• Sekat (2003)
• The Best +5 (2004)
• Rockmantic (2007)
• Rockmantic (Repackaged) (2008)
• Semua Ini Sendiri (2009)

Dan semoga saja, buat The Fivers, kehadiran formasi baru Five Minutes ini akan menjadikan Blantika Musik Indonesia menjadi semakin Berjaya di Negeri Sendiri..

Kala Idealisme mulai terdesak selera Pasar

Kalo berbicara masalah musik anak Negeri, kita patut berbangga, karena musik Indonesia kini telah menjadi tuan rumah di negeri sendiri.

Tengok saja, kini betapa menjamurnya acara di televisi yang semuanya membahas tentang musik dan tak ada satupun yang membahas mengenai musik manca Negara (kecuali MTV tentunya, itupun juga sangat jarang).


Mulai dari acara Dahsyat di RCTI, Play List, InBox, Hip Hip Hura di SCTV, Derings di Trans TV, On the Spot di Trans 7, Klik di ANTV, atau kuis macam Happy Song di Indosiar dan Missing Lyric di Trans TV semuanya tentang musik anak Negeri ini.


Kualitas musisi Indonesia cukup bagus, hingga mereka mampu menembus pasar manca Negara. Meski masih Berjaya sebatas Negara tetangga, Malaysia dan Singapura tapi itu menjadi bukti kalo kemampukan musisi kita baik dari segi musikalitas dan arransement patut mendapat acungan jempol.

Namun lagu-lagu yang berada dalam puncak tangga, tak semuanya menjanjikan sebuah Idealisme bermusik, kadang keinginan sebagai anak Band yang pada awalnya atas nama label Indie pada saat memasuki Industri rekaman harus mengubah Idealismenya untuk mengikuti selera pasar, alasannya demi Exist- nya sebuah Band.

Mereka yang tetap pada Idealisme, akhirnya mulai melirik dan dilirik produser luar negeri. Salut buat mereka, karena masih mempertahankan Idealismenya tanpa takut kehilangan popularitas. Nama mereka cukup dikenal di kalangan penggemar tertentu, dan tentunya meski tampil di publik asing, mereka membawa nama Indonesia…...Bangga dong!!



Kalo ngedengerin lagu-lagunya Maliq & d'essential Band, wow…dahsyat abis, betapa tidak, hampir semua lagunya dikemas secara menarik. Apalagi dalam albumnya Mata-Hati-Telinga..Maliq & d’essential emang keren banget. Yang paling saya suka lagu “Coba Katakan”. Meski lagunya sebenernya mengandung kepiluan dua insan tapi tak mendayu-dayu dan sama sekali tak berkesan cengeng.

Coba Katakan
Song by : Maliq & d’essential

Coba coba katakan kepadaku
bahwa kita sedang berjalan menuju satu alasan
Janganlah kau katakan bila kita memang

tak ada tujuan dari apa yang dijalankan


Aku tak ingin terus terdiam memandangi harapan

Terlena akan manis cinta dan berujung kecewa

Aku tak ingin terus menunggu sesuatu yang tak pasti

Lebih baik kita menangis dan terluka hari ini


Coba coba katakan kepadaku sekali lagi

bila kita memang benar akan kesana

Buktikan dan buat aku percaya
bahwa kita bisa mewujudkan bahagia

Ohh.. Oh.. Habis sudah semua rangkai kata

Telah terungkap semua yang ku rasa

Yang kuingin akhir yang bahagia

Yang ku inginkan satu tujuan

Sebuah kenyataan bukan impian

Bukan harapan bukan alasan

Satu kepastian


Coba katakan

Coba katakan

Coba katakan

Coba katakan



Band super keren yang digawangi oleh sepasang kekasih Endah n Rhesa. Nama Bandnya juga sama : Endah n’ Rhesa, semua lagunya berbahasa Inggris, karakteristik vocal Endah begitu Unique. Mirip vokalis-vokalis band manca Negara yang sangat unik.

Patut diacungi jempol, karena usaha keras mereka mempromosikan lagu-lagunya hanya lewat teman dan jejaring social. Meski begitu, jangan salah, penggemar mereka bejibun lho!! Tembangnya cukup asyik juga kaya I Don't Remember, Baby it's you, Uncle Jim, When You Love Someone dan Remember Me dikemas dalam satu album



Gaya Vintage Mocca, membuatnya seolah menjadi Band yang mengusung aliran music tersendiri, beberapa lagunya yang popular, melejit lewat OST film-film Indonesia. Terakhir, mereka mengisi soundtrack Film Catatan Anak Sekolah. Saya Moccalover, dan yang paling saya suka lagu : I Remember



White Shoes and the Couple Company, merupakan salah satu Band Indie yang dicium oleh para penggemar musik indie lewat internet. Mereka menjadi salah satu pengisi acara di SXSW (Festival Musik terbesar di Texas, USA) memulai debut albumnya yang dirilis oleh Aksara Records di Indonesia, Juga telah dirilis oleh Minty Fresh Records di Amerika pada tahun 2007. Terakhir, dalam bentuk EP (mini-album) "Skenario Masa Muda", dirilis tahun 2008..



Kalo ada yang bilang, Efek Rumah Kaca itu adalah Band yang gak mutu, sini saya bawain golok. Slank yang segitu cueknya aja, bisa mengagumi Band keren ini. Lagunya gak banyak yang dikenal, tapi sekali denger, pasti jatuh cinta. Keren banget sih. Idealisme yang patut diacungi jempol. Bukan hanya musisi senior aja yang ngefans abis sama nih Band, tapi para ABG juga banyak yang gandrung (termasuk saya he..he)

Di Udara

Song by : Efek Rumah Kaca


Aku sering diancam
juga teror mencekam
Kerap ku disingkirkan
sampai dimana kapan

Ku bisa tenggelam di lautan

Aku bisa diracun di udara

Aku bisa terbunuh di trotoar jalan

Tapi aku tak pernah mati

Tak akan berhenti

Aku sering diancam
juga teror mencekam
Ku bisa dibuat menderita

Aku bisa dibuat tak bernyawa
di kursi-listrikkan ataupun ditikam

Tapi aku tak pernah mati

Tak akan berhenti

Tapi aku tak pernah mati

Tak akan berhenti

Ku bisa dibuat menderita

Aku bisa dibuat tak bernyawa
di kursi-listrikkan ataupun ditikam
Ku bisa tenggelam di lautan

Aku bisa diracun di udara

Aku bisa terbunuh di trotoar jalan

Tapi aku tak pernah mati

Tak akan berhenti



Satu lagi deng.... The S.I.G.I.T.

Saya kenal lagu-lagunya dari seseorang yang hobby banget muter musiknya. Pertama denger, gak familiar banget, tapi lama-lama saya suka juga.
Meski awalnya sukanya karena suka sama seseorang yang hobby dengerin The S.I.G.I.T tapi akhirnya saya jatuh cinta juga sama This Band. Apalagi personilnya unik (baca :dandanan nyentrik) membuat kesannya jadi Band yang berani tampil beda.

Yeah, meski selera pasar di Indonesia belum terlalu menerima Band-band ini, tapi semoga Idealisme mereka tetap bisa dipertahankan

Naluri Lelaki


Coba dengarin sekali lagi lagu ini :

Benar ku mencintaimu
Tapi tak begini
Kau khianati hati ini

Kau curangi aku…


Dan lagu ini :

Aku adalah lelaki yang tak pernah lelah mencari wanita
Aku adalah lelaki yang selalu gundah menuggu wanitaku

Aku adalah lelaki yang pantang menyerah memikat wanita

Aku adalah lelaki yang selalu ingin dibuai wanitaku


Kedua lagi itu sama-sama dinyanyikan oleh lelaki dan menceritakan tentang lelaki hanya perbedaannya lagu yang pertama menceritakan kesedihan dan kegundahan sedang lagu kedua bercerita tentang keperkasaan dan arogansi lelaki.

Buat saya, meski kesannya arogan dan menyebalkan, saya lebih cenderung suka dengan lagu Naluri Lelaki tersebut. Dan sebagai wanita, saya akan lebih jatuh cinta kepada lelaki yang memburu cinta wanita dengan naluri laki-laki.

Saya gak suka laki-laki dengan kualitas menye-menye seperti lagu itu. Baru ditinggal pacar atau dikhianati istri sudah menangis gulung-gulung.

Malu ateuh! Menangis mah boleh aja, tapi engga musti kesannya menye-menye kan?

Saya juga engga suka tuh ketika lelaki mengumbar aib mantannya di infotainment, gara-gara sakit hati. Padahal mantannya itu juga ibu dari anak-anaknya yang telah puluhan tahun menemaninya dan memberi andil besar dalam memberi nafkah keluarga…

Buat para lelaki.....

Rasanya engga penting banget bila masih mengurusi mantannya di kala hubungan ikatan sudah tak ada lagi, memberi pendapat, memberi masukan, melarang anak-anaknya ketemu ibu kandungnya hanya untuk memuaskan egonya.


Apa gak inget apa dulu-dulunya kaya apa?

Mengumbar kemesraan di depan umum, trus udah cerai fotonya diapus-apusin semua, dijelek-jelekin di depan umum. Mirip ABG yang putus cinta di Facebook aja….^0^

Kalo masih cinta, bilang aja napa?

Plis dweh!!!!

Para Pria Penguasa Dunia Kuliner

Duh, lama sekali diriku tak menengok blog ini. Sampe banyak sarang laba-laba, jamuran, panuan, kudisan kurapan. Maafkan diriku ya, wahai blogku tercinta. Jangan ngambek dan jangan turun Page Rank.

Ya udah, sekarang aku tak posting. Postingan ini bukan membahas tentang ayam bumbu kecap dan kelezatannya tapi membahas tentang pengolah dan penyelia kuliner di dalamnya.

Dunia ini apa sudah kebalik ya? Para wanita yang biasanya kenal banget dengan seluk beluk dapur tapi kini justru bertebaran para pria yang piawai dalam seluk beluk kuliner ini. Mereka tak hanya piawai dalam mengolah masakan saja, nyatanya mereka menangguk sukses dalam hidup mereka karena menekuni dunia kuliner ini.

Para pria ini sangat dikenal dan wajahnya tak asing lagi sebagai presenter tayangan kuliner di televisi swasta Indonesia.

1. Bondan Winarno

Siapa yang tak kenal pak Bondan ini. Pria paruh baya ini terkenal dengan istilah “Mak Nyus” yang kemudian sering diplesetkan menjadi “Mak Nyos” oleh para comedian. Pak Bondan pertama dikenal lewat acara Bango santapan nusantara di Trans TV, namun kemudian berubah menjadi wisata kuliner yang khusus membahas tempat kuliner di seluruh Indonesia dan berbagai belahan dunia lainnya.

Detail dalam mengungkapkan rasa masakan, membuat pemirsa seolah-olah tak tahan ikut menitikkan air liur melihat tayangan Wisata Kuliner yang ditayangkan Trans TV setiap hari sabtu. Pokok-e Mak Nyus tenan!








2. Rudy Choirudin

Barangkali, pria pertama yang tampil di televisi Indonesia adalah Rudy Choirudin. Sejak jaman bahuela pria berambut ikal ini telah membawakan acara masak-memasak di televisi. Pertama kali tampil, Rudy membawakan acara Santapan Nusantara di RCTI.

Spesialisasinya mengolah atau memodifikasi masakan Nusantara menjadi santapan yang layak disejajarkan dengan masakan manca Negara lainnya. Meski tingkahnya tak kemayu atau ke perempuan-perempuanan, Rudy Choirudin sangat piawai di dapur dan dari profesinya ini, ia berhasil menangguk tak sedikit rejeki.








3. Bara Patirajawane

Sebenernya pria berdarah Ambon Manado ini mengawali karirnya sebagai seorang desainer. Namun kecintaannya pada dunia kuliner membuatnya lebih memilih menekuni dunia kuliner. Tampil dalam acara Gula-gula di Trans TV setiap hari sabtu, kita akan melihat gayanya yang cukup cekatan mengolah kue atau masakan.

Meski kadang suka kuenya bantat, atau masakannya sedikit gosong, tapi penampilan Bara di TV justru sangat alami, karena seahli apapun orang bisa juga terjadi kesalahan.

Bara tampil dengan gaya cukup macho, tattoo di lengan dan piercing di telinganya. Image Chief yang harus menggunakan topi dan celemek masak sama sekali dihilangkannya



4. Haryo Pramoe

Saya sering ketawa kalo melihat Haryo Pramu masak di TV, soalnya ibu pasti berkomentar “ si Jorok lagi masak”. Secara, lelaki satu ini suka sembarangan pake tangan yang kadang engga dicuci untuk ngambil bahan masakan, padahal tangannya masih belepotan bumbu atau bahan lain.

Pembawa acara Harmoni Alam di Trans TV ini, hobby banget mengolah masakan yang super praktis yang bisa disajikan ketika sedang di alam bebas. Meski kesannya jorok. Ciri khas Haryo Pramu ini membuatnya lebih ekslusif dibandingkan Chief lainnya, tak banyak pernik menunjukkan aslinya bagaimana bila lelaki biasa di dapur meski enak hasil masakannya tapi rada “berantakan”







5. William Wongso

Pakar kuliner berdarah Mandarin ini, sudah melanglang buana puluhan tahun di dunianya. Kepiawaiannya dalam hal kuliner, membuatnya menjadi ahli dalam hal kuliner sekaligus mengantarkannya menjadi pebisnis kuliner yang sukses di negeri ini. Salah satu resto hasil karyanya yang menyajikan masakan sedikit nyeleneh bernama Mie Item terletak dikawasan kemang Jakarta.

Pembawa acara kuliner di Metro TV ini tak hanya terkenal di Indonesia saja, bahkan hingga ke Manca Negara telah mengakui ke ahlinya dalam bidang kuliner.







Saya sebenernya juga pengin kaya mereka. Bukan pengin jadi lelakinya, tapi pengin pinter masak. Bisa sih masak, cuman hasilnya gak ditanggung menimbulkan kejang-kejang atau tidaknya.

Putri Mahkota Para Rocker Dunia

Ayah-ayah mereka terkenal sebagai badboys; si petualang cinta, raja pestadan pernah dikenal sebagai pemakai narkoba. Apakah putri Mahkota mereka akankah mewarisi “gen” sang ayah?

1. Elizabeth Jagger


Elizabeth TaylorModel cantik ini adalah putri Mick Jagger, rocker berbibir dower dan model Jerry Hall. Ia mulai karier modellingnya di usia 14 tahun di peragaan busana desainer kenamaan Thiery Mugier bersama ibunya.

Liz sempat membuat naik darah ayahnya ketika dia nekat menerima tawaran berpose nude di majalah pria Play Boy. Ternyata, playboy klas kakap dan mantan pecandu narkoba itu tak rela juga juga melihat tubuh putrinya dipamerkan di majalah yang menjadi ikon pria tersebut.





2. Kelly Osbourne

Kelly OsbornePutri dari rocker gaek, Ozzy Osbourne ini namanya makin popular ketika ikut reality show The Osbournes, yang mengisahkan potret keluarganya yang biasa nyleneh. Setelah serial keluarganya usai, pemilik 13 tatto ini beralih ke dunia music dan menjadi desainer aksesori.

Kelly yang semula hobby berdandan Grunge, bertubuh gemuk dan rambut ganti-ganti warna, mulai mempercantik diri dengan menguruskan tubuhnya dan berpenampilan feminine.
Kelly dan Jack, adiknya juga telah membersihkan diri dari ketergantungannya pada obat penennga setelah dua kali masuk panti rehabilitasi. Sepertinya buah jatuh tak jauh dari pohonnya.


3. Kimberly Stewart

Kimberly Stewart Putri Rod Stewart ini tampaknya mengikuti jejak sang ayah dalam urusan berpesta dan berpetualang cinta. Biang pesta ini geng dugemnya adalah The Socialite Paris Hilton dan Tara Reid. Juga berpacaran dengan banyak pria, seperti : Jack Osbourne, putra dari Ozzy Osbourne, Scoot Caan, putra actor James Caan dan Cisco Adler, pemusik yang kini kekasih aktris Mischa Bartoon.

Tapi yang paling seru, setelah dengan wajah sumringah mengumumkan pertunangannya dengan Talan Tierro sepuluh hari kemudian dengan santai ia membatalkan janji setianya tersebut. Model Tommy Hilfiger dan Patricia Field ini memiliki tattoo di pinggul yang dibuatnya untuk sang ayah. Bunyinya “ Daddy’s little girl loves disco”



4. Liv Tyler

Liv TylerTampaknya putrid Steven Tyler, Vokalis Aerosmith inilah yang paling tidak neko-neko dan paling berprestasi. Liv Tyler menyadari bahwa ayah kandungnya Steven Tyler di usia 9 tahun, setelah melihat kemiripan dirinya dengan Mia, anak Steven Tyler yang lain.

Sebelumnya ia menyangka dirinya adalah anak rocker Todd Rundgren, kekasih ibunya, model tahun 70’an Bebe Buell.
Mulai kariernya sebagai model videoklip ayahnya di usia 16 tahun bersama Alicia Silverstone, lalu meneruskan bakatnya di dunia acting dengan membintangi beberapa Film diantaranya : Stealing Beauty, Armageddon, That Thing To You Do dan Dr. T & The Women merupakan bukti kepiawaiannya bermain Film.

Linkin Park, Easy Listening Rock


Sebenarnya saya tak terlalu suka music Rock. Saya lebih menyukai music yang lembut dan romantis. Mungkin karena saya cewe ya, sehingga lebih cenderung suka yang mendayu-dayu seperti lagu-lagunya SHINee , She , Ran , Ecoutez, Maliq D’Essential atau Rossa.

Namun entah kenapa, begitu saya mendengar lagu-lagunya Linkin Park saya langsung Jatuh cinta. Lagu-lagunya cakep abis, kaya My December, Numb, Breaking The Habits dan masih banyak lagi.

Hampir semua lagu-lagunya saya punya. Meski hanya donlot gratisan sih he..he. Tapi Group music beraliran Nu Rock asal Aguora Hills, California, Amerika Serikat ini memang benar-benar telah memikat hati saya. Namun ternyata tak hanya saya ya, saya sedikit katrok, karena hampir semua temen-temen cowo juga suka lagu-lagu group Band yang beranggotakan Chester Bennington – vokal, Rob Bourdon – drum, Brad Delson – gitar, Dave "Phoenix" Farrell – bass, Joseph Hahn – turntable, sampling, Mike Shinoda – backing vocal, sampling, rap, keyboard, gitar.

Sama seperti Blog ini, sebelum menjadi nama Linkin Park, Group ini telah mengalami berkali-kali ganti nama antara lain Xero, Hybrid Theory, 0818, hingga nama Linkin Park sampai sekarang. Nama "Linkin Park" sendiri merupakan plesetan dari nama sebuah taman di Los Angeles, Lincoln Park.

Linkin Park meluncurkan album pertamanya, Hybrid Theory, pada tanggal 24 Oktober 2000 dengan singel pertama One Step Closer. Namun, yang lebih terkenal adalah singel Crawling dan In the End. Lagu ini telah membuat Linkin Park menjadi populer. Penjualan album itu melebihi 15 juta keping. Linkin Park lalu merilis edisi spesial dari Hybrid Theory, dengan 2 lagu baru High Voltage (Reprise) dan My December (lagu).

Linkin Park lalu merilis album aransemen ulang dari Hybrid Theory, Reanimation. Album ini pun meraih kesuksesan dengan penjualan kira-kira 10 juta kopi. Singelnya, Pts.Of.Athrty, tidak sepopuler singel di Hybrid Theory, namun cukup terkenal. Linkin Park, melalui Mike Shinoda dan Joseph Hahn, juga sempat bekerja sama dengan band The X-ecutioners dalam pembuatan singel It's Goin' Down. Linkin Park juga membentuk kelompok fans mereka bernama Linkin Park Underground, serta mulai mengadakan tur sendiri bernama Projekt Revolution, setelah sering diundang ke festival musik.

Tanggal 25 Maret 2003, Linkin Park merilis album kedua bertitel Meteora. Nama tersebut diambil dari nama tempat ibadah di atas puing-puing di Yunani. Album ini juga meraih kesuksesan dengan penjualan kira-kira 11 juta kopi. Singelnya adalah Somewhere I Belong, Faint, Numb, From the Inside, Lying from You, dan Breaking the Habit.

14 Mei 2007 Linkin Park mengeluarkan album Minutes To Midnight. Sebanyak 100 lagu demo telah diciptakan namun hanya 12 yang dimasukkan ke dalam album. Tidak heran kalau album ini direkam selama 14 bulan. Dalam album Minutes To Midnight, unsur musik nu metal kurang kental. Walaupun demikian, album ini tetap digemari. Buktinya adalah album ini terjual hampir sebanyak 625 ribu kopi dalam pekan pertamanya (sebuah rekor dalam tahun 2007).

Album studio ketiga ini diproduseri oleh Mike Shinoda dan Rick Rubin, mantan personil Beastie Boys. Singel pertamanya, "What I've Done", sudah mulai diputar di radio pada tanggal 2 April 2007. Minutes To Midnight juga menduduki tangga teratas Billboard.

Pada tanggal 20 Agustus 2007, Linkin Park merilis singel keduanya, yaitu "Bleed It Out". Dan, pada bulan Oktober, Linkin Park merilis singel "Shadow of the Day". Lalu disusul dengan Given Up (Maret 2008), dan singel terakhir dari "Minutes To Midnight", Leave Out All the Rest (Juli 2008).


Mereka juga merilis lagu "New Divide" yang dipakai untuk soundtrack film terbaru Transformers yaitu Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.Lagu ini juga sudah mencapai posisi 6 di Amerika Serikat, di Inggris mencapai posisi 20, dan mendapat penghargaan dalam kategori "Best Scream Song of the Year" di Spike TV.

He..he Maaf ini datanya copas dari Wikipedia.com. Biar update terus blognya..maklum modem rusak sih, jadi musti posting ke warnet..ho..ho..ho

Namun meski demikian (halah) saya memang beneran suka sama Group Musik yang terdiri dari sekumpulan musisi Gaek ini. Tua tua keladi, semakin tua semakin berisi.
