  1. I really enjoyed it. I can see it working well as host nations not cities. Then you can use an athletics stadium in say Birmingham but use the velodrome in Manchester.
  2. If I was her I would have gone again but I understand why she didn't. God knows what will happen in Israel if anyone storms the stage with a backpack.
  3. If anyone wants to watch the performance they have put the jury version up as obviously the middle part of the song was never performed on the night. The staging was pretty good again the crowd were clapping and singing along. Lets hope next year we put forward a stronger song and we actually get to perform it on the night so we can be judged by everyone on a level playing field.
  4. The UK didn't deserve third from last at all. In the audience you could hear the crowd singing the song. Didn't hear that for anybody else. It wasn't the best song by a mile, but it deserved more than it got. What really annoyed me was that there was no mention of what happened. They just brushed over it. She had her moment in the spotlight stolen. Why should she have to perform again? It shouldn't have happened! Its a stain on the contest as far as Im concerned, it keeps happening and they need to get a grip of it.
  5. Not impressed at all with that Closing. And Birmingham, you should have dumped that film it was really, really, really bad. Also you should have dumped the rapper and just done the one take dance routine, at least that was entertaining and adventurous. I'm still undecided about the spoken word performer. I just can't believe how bad that film was though, I don't think I even understood what they were trying to say. It should make people want to visit not put them off!
  6. I wasn't hopeful about the Birmingham handover at all. I thought the short notice would be the excuse but the pictures Im seeing from Birmingham city centre look great. Im not a fan of Lady Sanity, but the Floozy in the Jacuzzi has had a make over, there are banners going up everywhere, it could actually be a good segment. It will be interesting to see how they switch between the stadium in Australia and Birmingham but I'm quite excited now
  7. There will be a film by Daniel Alexander and Rapper Lady Sanity who I can honestly say I've never heard of. I am reserving judgement for now. Culture Central are organising it. I visited their website for a moment and got bored. Fingers crossed it will be amazing!
  8. Well I didn't enjoy the closing half as much as the opening. Didn't excite me at all. The Beijing handover, I loved the Tron movement mixed with the projections but by the end it all looked so tacky. If they had used a smarter colour palette or at least more refined I think it could have looked really cool, it just all looked like they were throwing everything at it. I liked how they linked to past games though, that was a nice touch. Im going to put this out there, Im starting to get bored with the projections on the floor. Its starting to feel lazy now. We've been there we've done
  9. Details of the handover will be announced in the next couple of weeks according to Twitter
  10. I was just thinking this and realised Rob had posted the same thing in December. But they have a really short time to pull together the hand over segment. Will they launch a logo? Anybody seen anything? The website hasn't been updated since before they were awarded the games, so that worries me. So I think we should give them some help, some ideas. I think they need to play Hello, Goodbye by the Beatles. Bloody perfect apart from the Liverpool link (sorry Liverpool, but maybe a nice nod to them at the same time) Then give all the audience those foam hands with the new
  11. I always saw it that when it went really small they became the sun rays and didn't need to be read. I sent the logo to the people at LA2028 saying it was a little project that I'd like to show them, got nothing back, not even a thank's for taking the time. So I hope their games are a disaster. Only joking ; ) It will be interesting to see what they come up with and when they reveal it as they have such a long lead up
  12. Congratulations to woohooitsme83 it was a hard fought contest. How many times have I been the bridesmaid! Ha ha Great competition as always guys, you put a lot of effort in and we all appreciate it. Officially I retired last year but I may see you in 2018 : )
  13. Here is my logo for LA2028. Instead of dumping the bid concept and starting afresh I have decided to link to the bid with a sun icon. The bid said #followthesun and the competitors and the visitors will do just that. The logo's beams are made up of past hosts highlighting the journey that the Olympics has got to to get to 2028. The word mark is then in blue to represent the sun rising behind the ocean. A new dawn for LA and a new dawn for the Olympics. All other support material can be found here. https://www.behance.net/gallery/56031033/LA2028-Branding
  14. I haven't posted it yet, still tweaking. Its different.......its very different
  15. The OC was shown, very, very, very low key. I was expecting something but not sure what and this wasn't it. A few songs and speeches one by Prince Andrew looking quite sombre and bored. The crowds have been great though. That 100 metres was a travesty and the medal ceremony straight after Jessica getting her Gold upgrade was just pants. It sounds like Coe wants change with lifetime bans but there is no appetite for it. Really sad. Looks like you have been having a great time though Rob, I went to see some of the Parras and decided to watch this one from home.
  16. The medals for Paris 2024 have already been designed apparently and can split into 4 to be shared. Design by Phillippe Starck https://www.dezeen.com/2017/07/25/philippe-starck-paris-2024-olympic-medals-designed-to-be-shared/
  17. I have been trying to find out if there is a ceremony myself. The last few have had one so you would think. The Para's had speeches and I think that was about it. Obviously Channel 4 didn't show it because they were probably showing repeats of Big Bang Theory at the time. Moscow did a whole space themed thing didn't they?
