  1. I re-watch a lot of the artistic segments from past ceremonies. Rio 2016, London 2012, and Athens 2004 are probably the ones I return to most. I’ll play “passages” (Athens 2004) and “Caliban’s Dream” (London 2012) quite often.
  2. For what it’s worth, my favorite songs about California as a Californian are probably… - California Dreamin’ by the Mamas and the Papas (and this one does explicitly mention LA) - Californication by the Red Hot Chili Peppers - California English by Vampire Weekend Also, our state song is underrated, so I’d be happy to see it get some international attention.
  3. If the handover ceremony doesn’t have at least the chorus of this song, what are we even doing 😝
  4. I’m going to vote “yes,” but I think they absolutely need to adapt. It’s a lot of fun to see places like Norfolk Island, St. Helena, Anguilla, etc. mix it up against larger territories at an event like that.
  5. Yeah, but the sports should be on early evening/primetime in the Pacific time zone, so not a bad compromise for you
  6. I can’t get over the similarity between “B” and the RyanAir logo. These are all pretty good though.
  7. The media guide does mention some “unique” backdrops that only the IOC/Gangwon 2024 can use, so they’re might still be a “visual identity” of sorts.
  8. I really like option A as a throwback to the early Olympic posters. It probably wouldn’t work as a logo, but it’d be a great poster. I gave it a vote nonetheless.
  9. Yes, that was the edition in Birmingham. I think this situation is very nuanced. I do see the slippery slope of allowing the Haudenosaunee to compete, but I also think it presents a great opportunity. The sports originates from Native Americans. Plus, they do have a special legal status domestically. The IOC and US government could also likely use some positive engagement with Native Americans given both entities troubled past in that regard.
  10. The World Games 2022 had eight team tournaments for both genders in the “sixes” format. Japan pulled off a rather shocking upset over Great Britain to snag the bronze medal on the men’s side. Australia took the bronze medal on the women’s side. Haudenosauneee were actually only 5th (men’s) on that occasion. They originally were NOT awarded a quota, but after an uproar about that decision, Ireland graciously rejected their spot, so it could be filled by the Haudenosaunee.
