  1. I'm happy to know that this song really spoke to someone else. When I was in my early 20s, I was so convinced that I would make my life elsewhere than Switzerland. I had that will to leave and go live elsewhere. I thought that elsewhere might be Australia as I went there on a working-holiday visa and thought I might not come back to Switzerland for a long time, if ever. Well, life has a funny way of teaching you to know better haha. After 2 months in Australia (different places), I felt homesick and came back to where is definitely "home" When I heard this song it brought me back to those years and this is also why I decided to present it for the contest.
  2. Absolutely! This song is now a permanent resident into my Apple Music Thank you @uk12points!
  3. Oh man and the competition's logo is AMAZINGLY STUNNING
  4. Hi everyone, I know the contest has just been closed, I'm a little late. But I couldn't be there yesterday as I anticipated before confirming Switzerland's participation and I would like to say a few things. First of all, auguri all'Italia One of my 2 blood-countries winning makes me super proud Second, WOW, finishing just shy of 100pts is SUPER DUPER AMAZING! Being temporarily in the Top5 and even Top3 is more than I had imagined! I'm glad so many of you liked Eliane, whom I just discovered looking for Switzerland's entry in this contest. She really has a great voice. And third, I would like to thank the nations that have voted for Switzerland. Thank you Algeria (11pts), India (10pts), Azerbaijan & Indonesia (9pts), Germany & Russia (8pts), Lithuania (5pts), Brazil & Ireland & Romania (3pts), Bulgaria & Malta (2pts) and Italy (1pt). Last but not least, a HUGE. No, IMMENSE thank you from the bottom of my heart to Croatia ( @dcro ) & Netherlands ( @heywoodu ) for awarding 12 POINTS to Switzerland Obrigado @vinipereira and Brazil for hosting this year's TISC EDIT PS: Great Britain's song hit directly into my soul, hence my 12pts.

  6. Ah that's why one of my messages disappeared^^
  7. Men's Baseball MLB 2018

    WOW!!! That's short! Manfred must be happy haha! The game Dodgers-Dbacks was a lot of fun, if you guys can watch the replay or condensed, I recommend it!
  8. Men's Baseball MLB 2018

    And Pillar who stole 3 bases (2nd, 3rd and home) in ONE inning After a rusty start, the last 2 games of the Blue Jays and Dodgers were fun to watch! And Happ starting the season with a HR, awesome! Even more because he was on my fantasy team haha! But I traded him for Moncada.
  9. The Jury of Switzerland has voted! So many good songs this year
  10. Haven't started yet... I was sick, then on a business trip and now I'm even sicker than before Will vote today or tomorrow though
  11. It also doesn't matter to me if there's a music video or not I listen more than I watch.
  12. ELIANE - DEAR HOME For the TISC 2018, Switzerland presents 27-year old Eliane Müller from Lucerne. She is a singer-songwriter and the song "Dear Home" is part of her 4th album "Slow Motion" that was released in November 2017.
  13. Welp... That's also the kind I had chosen...
  14. Men's Baseball MLB 2018

    Well, Ohtani was perfect as a batter yesterday, pleasure to watch! 3 walks and an rbi single
  15. Men's Baseball MLB 2018

    A lot of good pitchers made their season debuts yesterday. Terrible start of Spring Training for Nola: 2IP, 4H, 3ER, 3K. Bumgarner's start wasn't much better: 1.2IP, 4H, 2ER, 5K. The Giants lost 10-12 to the Cubs Greinke was a little sharper: 1.2IP, 3H, 1ER, 0K Scherzer was good: 2IP, 1H, 1ER, 3K Kershaw was perfect: 1IP, 0H, 0ER, 0K That being said, the Dodgers still lost 0-2 to the Mariners and the Blue Jays lost a second day in a row to the Tigers, 3-6. Only 3 games on TV tonight BUT Ohtani might be in the Angels' lineup as a hitter! I'll watch if that's the case. If not, I'll put the Brewers on: 19:05 Mets @ Astros (Syndergaard vs Verlander / nice pitching matchup) 21:05 Indians @ Brewers (Tomlin vs Guerra) 21:10 Angels @ Padres (Skaggs vs Lyles)

    The draw in Acapulco is STACKED!!! Notable first round matchups Rublev vs Ferrer Nishikori vs Shapovalov Possible notable second round matchups Chung vs Sock Mannarino vs Anderson Del Potro vs Rublev/Ferrer Thiem vs Nishikori/Shapovalov Isner vs Schwartzman (who oddly enough plays Verdasco in the first round, whom he just beat yesterday in Rio's final )
  17. Men's Baseball MLB 2018

    In the end, Ohtani threw 31 pitches, didn't make it out of the 2nd inning (the plan was for him to throw 2 innings) and gave up a HR to Broxton of the Brewers. But the Angels ended up winning 6-5 anyway. The Blue Jays lost 4-5 to the Tigers and the split-squad Dodgers lots 4-8 to the Royals and 3-9 to the Giants. Today's televised games: 19:05 Braves @ Nationals (Kazmir - Scherzer) 19:05 Orioles @ Red Sox (Ynoa - Johnson) 19:05 Astros @ Cardinals (Cole - Mikolas) 19:05 Yankees @ Phillies (Montgomery - Nola) 19:05 Rays @ Twins (Snell - Gibson) 19:07 Tigers @ Blue Jays (Boyd - Happ) 19:10 Marlins @ Mets (Cloyd - Gsellman) 21:05 Cubs @ Giants (Tseng - Bumgarner) 21:05 Reds SS @ White Sox (Castillo - Guerrero) 21:05 Indians @ Reds SS (Bauer - Bailey) 21:10 Dodgers @ Mariners (Kershaw - Gonzales) 21:10 Padres @ Angels (Mitchell - Richards) I'll watch the start of the Phillies to see Nola, then the Jays until the Dodgers game, then switch to KershGod

    Just watched the replay of the Shapovalov-Tiafoe matchup in Delray and, as sad as I am that Shapo did not make it to the final, Tiafoe played amazing! No wonder he beat Delpo earlier in the tournament... The NextGen guys are really starting the year well, I'm loving it!
  19. Bobsleigh at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Soooooooooo close to a last medal
  20. It took me a little time to get into these Games, but once the Swiss athletes started to be involved and winning medals, it was easier I have a few favorite moments: The double in women's ski slopestyle that was unexpected Cologna's 4th Olympic Gold Medal (tying Simon Ammann), shed some tears Zenhäusern's Silver Medal in slalom Gisin's Gold and Holdener's Bronze in the alpine combined The happiness of the Men's curling team when they won bronze USA Women's hockey team finally winning Gold again My biggest disappointment is seeing Lara Gut leave South Korea without a medal She's so talented, it pains me that she ends up 4th too many times or doesn't finish races. I really hope she'll win Gold at some point. There were a few big upsets as well: USA beating Sweden in curling for gold... Ledecka winning gold in 2 different sports... Canada not winning a medal in classic curling... Both Hirscher AND Kirstoffersen DNF in the slalom... Germany playing for (and almost winning) gold in men's hockey There were probably others that I'm forgetting but these are the ones I'll remember. Overall good Games for Switzerland, tying 1988 Calgary for the medals total (15) and surpassing the target (11) announced before.
  21. Men's Baseball MLB 2018

    Tough 1st inning for Ohtani but only one score (on a wild pitch then a bad throw from the catcher).
  22. Men's Baseball MLB 2018

    And Ohtani's first K is Orf.
  23. Men's Baseball MLB 2018

    Villar welcomes Ohtani with a groundrule double
  24. Men's Baseball MLB 2018

    I'm sure it'll be worth it! And one of the young guns went deep yesterday already! Fernando Tatis Jr from the Padres! Maybe a name to keep in mind this season (he's ranked the 8th best prospect in the league).
