CAINE’S ARCADE: A NICE STORY

Caine Monroy is a 9-year old boy who spent his summer vacation building an elaborate DIY (DO IT YOURSELF) cardboard arcade in his dad’s used auto parts store.

Caine dreamed of the day he would have lots of customers visit his arcade, and he spent months preparing everything, perfecting the game design, making displays for the prizes, designing elaborate security systems, and hand labeling paper-lunch-gift-bags. However, his dad’s autoparts store (located in an industrial part of East LA) gets almost zero foot traffic, so Caine’s chances of getting a customer were very small, and the few walk in customers that came through were always in too much of a hurry to get their auto part to play Caine’s Arcade. But Caine never gave up.

One day, by chance, I walked into Smart Parts Auto looking for a used door handle for my ’96 Corolla. What I found was an elaborate handmade cardboard arcade manned by a young boy who asked if I would like to play. I asked Caine how it worked and he told me that for $1 I could get two turns, or for $2 I could get a Fun Pass with 500 turns. I got the Fun Pass.

This short film tells the story of Caine’s Arcade, and of our attempt to make Caine’s day.

BIEBER FEVER, Justin visits Europe

(CBS/AP) Justin Bieber brought the Christmas spirit to London on Monday, switching on Christmas lights at the city’s two biggest shopping malls.
Thousands of young and mostly female fans waited hours for the 17-year-old singer to appear, first at the Westfield shopping center in west London, then hours later at the new Westfield Stratford City mall near the 2012 Olympic Park in the east.

Bieber traveled between two malls, which are 12 miles apart, by helicopter.

The star, who won two prizes at Sunday’s MTV Europe Music Awards in Belfast, told fans that his favorite thing about London was “all the girls.”

Bieber fever arrived in Spain last Wednesday when he visited El Hormiguero, a funny program on laSexta tv channel. He was interviewed and talked about his last album and film. He sang his new released single Mistletoe, in front of hundreds of screaming fans. He even did Rubik’s cube in only 1minute and 25 seconds.
Bieber fever has quickly spread all over the world with huge crowds of screaming girls gathering wherever Justin is due to appear in public.

NEW WORDS
MALL; shopping centre
FEMALE: girl, woman

SPECIAL CELEBRATIONS: GUY FAWKES AND THE GUNPOWDER PLOT


In 1605, a person named Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the British Parliament with 36 barrels of gunpowder. He, and his band of fellow conspirators, were caught after one of the group sent a letter to King James of England warning him to stay away from Parliament. Guy Fawkes was imprisoned and eventually put to death for his trouble, although modern British people remember him as “the only man ever to enter Parliament with honest intentions!”

Nowadays, the British mark Guy Fawkes’ Day (or simply Bonfire Night) by building bonfires and letting off fireworks. Traditionally, children made effigies of Fawkes from old clothes stuffed with newspaper, and display their “Guy” in the streets, asking “Penny for the Guy?”, and expecting to receive some money. Guys were then thrown on the bonfire at the height of the celebrations.

Big firework displays are organised in public playing fields and open areas, usually with huge bonfires. The bonfires often take weeks to build, and in small communities and villages everyone will bring some wood to add to the pile.

The events of 1605 are also remembered in a nursery rhyme.

“Remember, remember, the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.”
