  1. But wouldn't the same logic apply to Athens? I mean, Athens 2004 was no ordinary Olympics (the games finally coming back home), and that didn't stop them from bringing in the advertisers. I just can't see Beijing's ceremony being any different, especially when it's suppose to be the longest in history.
  2. I suppose camera angles are considered when designing and planning the lighting(s). Athens' cauldron , I think, would not have looked nearly as aesthetically pleasing if not viewed from behind, rising above, with the flame against the backdrop of all the athletes and camera flashes below.
  3. As I watch the opening match of the Little League World Series (of baseball), I can't help but think that the Youth Olympics was a great idea. With that being said, adults under estimate kids too much (and not just in sports) IMO.
  4. Can you please upload it again? The FileFactory link has again expired. Thanks!
  5. Bird's Nest Echoes With Lotus flowers http://en.beijing2008.cn/cptvenues/venues/...214102748.shtml Very nice.
  6. ^They can't have too much red. Too much might bleed through the television. We don't want more seizures. I'm quite excited and interested in the cauldron and its lighting. Were excatly in the Bird Nest will it be placed, and whether or not the Chinese will try to outdo Sydney and Barcelona, or go cheap like Torino.
  7. ^Yeah, for some reason that one seems to be the most reclusive of all these venues. I can't find anything on it (besides it's name and it hosting Indoor Volleyball). Not even a single construction photo. It should be pretty big though, just look at Athens' - http://stadia.gr/sef/sefnew9.jpg

  10. I thought a special layer would be placed to prevent these shadows, but still allow some natural light in...?
  11. Give me more vibrancy, preferably more red, and bring back the "Image and Look" page with the empty "Core Patterns" slot, and then I'll be completely happy with it.
  12. ^Heh, yeah. Hopefully, London will release some cool, new graphics, to go along with the new logo.
  13. Oh god, it's starting to grow on me.
  14. Don't like the design. Love the shape and colors, but those clouds should be more subtle. Perhaps it would have been better if they used the cloud design from the medal ribbons? Hope it grows on me. Don't like the relay either. I find Athens’s relay to have more 'harmony' then Beijing's. Seems to me like they were trying to fit in five continents for the sake of going to all five continents and having novelty, with symbolic destinations, and the result was VERY random and unbalance. Should have been kept to Asia.
  15. Love these medals. The jade and simple logo on the back has really grown on me (I wasn't too fond of them at first), and the grill work is undeniably Chinese. Beautiful. As for the ribbon, love it as well. Can't wait to see more of Beijing's "Core Patterns", that will make up the 'Look' of these games. I'm assuming they'll be different designs and graphics revolving around Beijing's Color System (Jade White, Glaze Yellow, Great Wall Grey, Porcelain Blue, Scholar-tree Green, and Chinese Red.
  16. I own(ed) Sydney 2000... it's a hot, steaming pile of sh!t. Punching buttons to the point of pain is not my idea of fun. Though, I absolutely loved the shooting event. It was very simple, yet still required some skill. I'm mixed about having Sonic and Mario for Beijing's game. But hey, if it means easing-up the game through the Wii controller, I might be all for it.
