  1. It has existed before... it was called the 1980's...
  2. reminds me of a bunch of sphincters...
  3. I concur... absolutely awful looking... and the 'pod' looks ghastly too... and i also thought of breast cancer when i first saw that photo...
  4. I am loving the renders of the Thames illuminated and with the bridges decked out in 'The Look'... Let's hope that it actually gets done and is not just all wishful idea-spouting...
  5. Where is the 'don't like this' button???
  6. ...? No..? I don't recall saying that... I believe the implication of my statement was that I am not an olympic die-hard like some others on here but happened to see it a while back... and I am not certain whether or not I had seen it here or elsewhere... I just said that I remember seeing the video, and made no comment as to origin...
  7. Well I remember seeing that video quite a long time ago... I can only assume If I saw it then the true Olympic die-hards on here must have seen it also...
  8. I think it is not that people did not notice the video Dave posted but rather they chose to ignore it since most of us saw it a couple of years ago and know that it is no longer accurate to what is being down with the outside of the stadium... Simply put, that video is quite outdated and inaccurate... done, not down
  9. Amen to that... the ONLY part of Torino's opening that didn't come off that way was the bit with the giant rings being erected (I think it was called "passon of the Games" or similar) The ABSOLUTE worst part was the bit with people running around on the field in the shape of a skier going down the hill and taking off... they wore raincoats with head-mounted flashlights and plastic wrap... it was beyond 'tacky' or 'cheap' I am just praying for no rapping, beatboxing, or British hoodie-thug-grafitti-ASBO nonsense... As an American I can tell you that is NOT what the world wants to see of Londo
  10. I didn't necessarily mean JAZZ when I said 'jazz it up'... so much as the figurative sense of speed it up or embellish it a bit... and yes, whitney at the super bowl during the first Gulf War was by far the greatest rendition of the Star Spangled Banner EVER and there there ever will be...
  11. Yes, I too really enjoyed the singing of the British anthem in the birds nest in Beijing... a simple anthem needs to be kept simple... now the version of O Canada performed by Inward Eye at the vancouver closing was great, whereas the opening version sung by Sara Yanvorski (sp?) was dreadful... if they wanted to jazz up God Save The queen a bit like vancouver did in their closing that would be one thing, it was energetic and positive, but not necessarily 'urban' or 'rock'
  12. Total Agreement... one of the things I am looking forward to in this Opening Ceremony is a classic, timeless, and bombastic rendition of God Save the Queen for the ages... not some god-awful pop/rock/punk version of it... I have seen the American anthem BUTCHERED at so many sporting events, particularly NBA events that try and turn it into some sort of 'urban' rap/pop monstrosity... God Save the Queen is simply not suited to being 'hip' nor should it be... Britain ought to be able to embrace its classic pomp and circumstance while also being a modern, diverse, and inclusive society without pan
  13. Well as I said... I would NEVER name any specific individuals, as that would be in bad taste and poor class... and none of of know of anyone on here who would continually lash out at other posters in personal attacks, make baseless accusations, or spew inappropriate and offensive protestations do we? DO WE??? edit: None of us*
