  1. I took a quick glimpse of it and I don't know how to feel. In a way, it felt like a very fun and self deprecating ceremony, and it seems they wanted to go "screw it, people love us for vidya and anime so lets just give people what they want from us", much like in the handover. I also liked the idea of the moving stages which would also form the continents. On the other hand, it's a bit cringe that all of the ceremony was going to be about vidya and anime references. And I'm not a fan at all of that cauldron lightning, its extremely similar (to not say identical) to Lima 2019 cauldron, includin
  2. Whats the point when Minimalism is forced everywhere as much as possible, be it in sport logos or rebrands of companies which I can make in 2 minutes in Photoshop for free but they decide to pay millions for them.
  3. Uh guys nice discussion and everything but did anyone noticed someone is spamming at the other boards?
  4. Excerpt of the parade of nations from the Kobe 1985 Universiade opening https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1942066475824594 Singing of the main theme (Beautiful Rival) https://www.facebook.com/2040811142852645/videos/2042930339307392
  5. Hey, I don't complain, as long as we can bar Doha or any other backwards dictatorship from the party
  6. It just began. Recording of the ceremony You can watch live here
  7. Not surprised, but still kind of sad. And I doubt this will help in any way given the virus is very extended in Japan as well. I honestly just want this to be put out of its misery, its pathetic at this point and most of the japanese population agrees with this. Its what happens when you let a comittee of 70-80 year old boomers in charge of decisions.
  8. No wonder Taro Aso said these games were cursed. Even without Covid they managed to shoot themselves in the foot constantly. Both by sexism, though considering Japan is one of the most sexist countries in the world, I'm hardly surprised to be honest.
  9. Both are a bit dissapointing but TeamFutura is the most elegant looking one for me, it reflects more about winter sports and it has certain touch of elegance. Dado design is cringe, not only because they are trying to copy the idea from LA 2028 but they also do it badly, with pixel symbols which look like something more fitting for a videogame convention or the Youth Olympics. Neither of them reaches the level of Torino 2006 logo and overall look, the later being my favorite winter Look of the Games of all time.
  10. Wait, Brisbane is going to host 2032 games? Sorry i've been disconnected from everything. I mean, remember when there were actual bid races because people actually wanted to host the games? Anyway congratulations to Australia i guess
  11. People should be directing their rage against the Olympics and the IOC instead of China. The later is someone who will never change and which repeatedly fucks with the world, but the IOC thought it was a wonderful idea to let them host or even participate in a bidding proccess. And they still have the courage of talking about crap like Olympic Truce, human rights and brotherhood of people. I would like them more if they kee the whole kumbaya stuff for themselves and just said straight away "We love money". Doesn't make them less horrible but I like when someone is honest at least.
  12. Good. What the organizing comittee needs now are young people. Not a bunch of old boomers with ultraconservative views. I always felt they were part of most of the problems these games (which everyday I feel more and more like they are cursed since its inception) had so many issues. To think I was so overconfident 7 years ago when Tokyo was elected that nothing would go wrong. Japan reputation for organization skill has taken a very bad blow.
  13. Looks like the Olympic Channel is posting ceremonies again. Albertville (which is not in the Youtube channel) is fully up for example. https://www.olympicchannel.com/en/search/videos/?q=opening+ceremony
  14. Full opening ceremony of Spain 1982 World Cup, this time without cuts.
  15. China dropping subtleness and acting like the owner of the world already. Their olympics can **** off for all I care.
  16. Like I said in another thread, IOC is another bought organization by Uncle Winnie. Just another puppet of the CCP so don't expect anything from their mouths which is not shilling for China. If Coubertin was alive he would die again seeing what a joke the IOC has become.
  17. Not a bad design, actually. It's pretty nice. Too bad I don't give a damn for these Olympics overall so I might not even watch either the relay or ceremonies. You killed the Tokyo games? You get no watches from me.
  18. As much as I would love to, IOC is just another of the hundreds of puppets of Uncle Winnie the Pooh right now, sadly. The whole Olympic movement is a farce as it laughts at the hundreds of Uyghur girls getting raped.
  19. Zhangjiakou Ski Jumping Center is pretty much finished now. Ice Ribbon on the inside
  20. I'll believe a boycott when I see it. China has way too much influence at this point. If people really cared about not letting China host, their victory in 2015 should had never been allowed to begin with. Now it's too late. Either way, at the pace we're going their Olympics might get delayed/canceled too because Covid doesn't seem to end either by this year.
  21. Incursions to Taiwan have been happening for months and even years (though not at the same intensity). Its just China typical flexing at Taiwan to intimidate them, specially now that their current president does not want to bend the knee like the previous Kuomitang leaders did. China invading Taiwan, an island with its own army and weapons, would imply bloodshed and a war. If PRC government isn't this level of goddamn stupid, I doubt they will go straight for that option but keep intimidating to make taiwanese citizens feel scared and vote KMT back into power by next election.
  22. Good. That's what they get for being a bunch of boomers out of touch with the current times. The fact they are still forcing Japan to host the games when COVID is far from over is extremely stupid.
  23. At this point I don't know anymore if Japan is really doing this out of their own will or if they're kidnapped by the IOC to go on with this stupid charade. No one with a brain buys or believes these games are going to be held, specially with the bureaucratic crap they threw recently regarding when will the vaccinations begin in Japan, not mentioning said bureaucracy is also affecting many other countries with their respective vaccination processes as well. Goddamn stupid. Olympism just loves to shoot itself in the foot ever since Sochi.
  24. Nomura was replaced as director by Hiroshi Sasaki , the person in charge of the Handover 4 years ago. Ceremony is going to be heavily revised (which without doubt its an elegant for of saying they will heavily tone/simplify it down). Sad, but expected. And to be fair considering the huge disaster the world is living right now, holding a huge extravaganza would be disrespectful. I guess i'm kinda heartbroken it had to happen with one of the ceremonies I was looking forward the most. These whole games have been a cursed trip almost as bad as Rio. https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2020/12/5
  25. Qatar can't keep getting away with it.... Oh well, not like the alternative was any better to be honest. After the COVID-19 mess no country will really be interested in hosting this event for some time so its only natural either super rich and/or dictatorial countries gets them for now.
