  1. By far the most festive Games since Sydney. Vancouver edges out Salt Lake for me by a bit.
  2. How do you know? The world isn't out to get us you know.
  3. Who cares? Jesus. No one country officialy "wins" the Games anyway. They should do a point system (1 for bronze, 2 for silver, 3 for gold) to prevent such endless, unimportant debates at the end of every Games.
  4. NBC's coverage has started. The cauldron is there unlit with only 3 legs.
  5. I have a paper to write for class tomorrow. Not sure if I'll be able to log on here. :/
  6. It's funny how these scrawny looking Korean kids that in America you would expect to see "dueling" at a Yugioh convention are actually short-track champions and adored by millions in their country. They are sooooooo into it. It's kind of off-putting.
  7. Ahem, I believe I coined the term Nasty Looking here on GB.
  8. In terms of design - Vancouver, just like every Games now, marks a continuation in the integration of the host's branding into the Olympic environment. Case in point, Vancouver's Look of the Games has been applied all the way down to decorating ethernet switches at the MPC and tissue boxes at the Figure Skating venue. You didn't see this 10 years ago.
  9. Lovely video outlying the design concept: http://www.vancouver2010.com/olympic-medals/vancouver-2010-medals/
  10. Wouldn't it be soon after the 2018 decision? So sometime towards the latter end of 2011 I think.
  11. Me too, if only because the speeds seem higher.
  12. The logo’s colors don't work at all, so I like it best in monochrome. I think its good that its different enough from the Look to stand out, but at the same time it’s not a completely different aesthetic.
  13. I know the aboriginal art work is different for each one on the front, I'm not sure about anything on the back.
  14. It also continued Torino's piazza motif. The negative space was the heart of the human body - like the piazza is to the town - like the Games are the gathering place of the world.
  15. I'm a sucker for deep, thought-out concepts behind any piece of Olympic design. And these are packed with them - so I like them. The orca, the waves, the mountains; they all come together very well here.
  16. I love Canada. These Games have got me itching to go back, if not to want to buy a waterfront condo in Vancouver.
  17. Well officially, it's not suppose to be anything. Meaning, Vanoc hasn't realesed any statement about the design's meaning. It can be anything you want it to be.
  18. The Alpine Skiing coverage has indeed been awful. They air the runs of the top Americans, those that will make the podium, and milk the crashes for ratings. With this formula, it’s predictable what the results will be. There’s none of that long “will that time / score hold up?" tension that we got with live Snowboarding and Figure Skating last night.
  19. Well at least everyone can get that close to it. Beats it being all the atop a stadium or inside an Olympic Park that you need tickets to enter.
