  1. Yuuup, altough remember we're talking about 55 nations here (back in 1990), different thing compared to the olympics more than 200 nations) Also, new jewel! A video with rehearsals of the 1984 Olympics Closing ceremony, which also includes excerpts from the actual Lionel Richie performance of his song ''All night long'' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGcnxhQs9to
  2. Excerpts from the 1999 All Africa Games opening ceremonies in Johanesburg, South Africa. .PD: These ceremonies were coreographed by Penny Jones (i heard they are going to work for the 2010 WC Ceremonies as well).
  3. Hmmm, now that the rehearsals are actually happening, there are a lot of chances that we'll see some more leaked content. The tickets for the rehearsals are 100$ Also i found this announcement for the rehearsal thingie http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/van/tix/1539494261.html
  4. Probably. I remember the guys behind Torino 2006 ceremonies unveiled a lot of details like three months before the actual ceremony (like a render of the scenario) and stuff about the sparks of passion (maybe spoling too much details was something which contributed to my actual dissapointment at those ceremonies in 2006). David Atkins didnt revealed much details before the Doha 2006 ceremonies, only like two pics of the dress rehearsals and that Jose Carreras would perform. Nothing more. I kinda prefer more secrecy about the ceremonies, since it helps to contribute to the surprise factor. I'm
  5. From 1:00 excerpts of the 1994 World Cup Opening Ceremony at Soldier's Field, Chicago.
  6. Umm guys i dunno if this was posted before here, but i found some pics googling, which seems to be purposals for the Opening Ceremony of the Beijing 2008 olympics. ^^; I hope you like them (some of them are very weird )
  7. Thanks olympics08 I also have other Beijing 1990 vids on my hardrive of various excerpts of the opening ceremony, i'll upload them later For now, i have found a video of the 2002 Winter Paralympics Opening Ceremony, watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3L6_4Th1Z10 PD: At 0:54, those costumes... ||D doesnt they remind you of some uniform certain ''Canucks'' hockey team used?
  8. Well, this whole miming stuff also reminded me of what happened on the Sydney 2000 opening ceremonies (which music was not also mimed but, in reality, performed by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra ). That doesnt hurt the fact that their music was probably the best i ever heard on a OC. Which worries me its the possible echo distortion at these ceremonies since w'ere talking about an indoor venue.
  9. I jut hope they dont make a big fuzz like some people did on Beijing 2008 relay (specially at London and San Francisco). Which scares me is that the worst part will be when the torch arrives to Vancouver, where i expect there's going to be even worst protests than the ones in Toronto or Victoria.
  10. God...not this again... *sets every stinky hippie on fire*
  11. Interview with David Atkins himself speaking about the ceremonies, on an interview at CTV
  12. Dave Pierce, better know for his works at the Calgary Stampede shows, will be the musical director of the ceremonies Some of his works (so we can get an idea of how the music could turn out) His official Myspace site http://www.myspace.com/officialdavepierce (you can hear some of his compositions at this site) Hmmm not bad. At least i think it will be better than Torino prerecorded music almost 4 years ago..eww ಠ_ಠ
  13. The official logo, visual identity and slogan for UEFA EURO 2012™ have been unveiled at a special event in Kyiv's Mykhailivska Square with co-hosts Ukraine and Poland looking forward to 'Creating History Together'. Star guests Polish Football Association President Grzegorz Lato, his Football Federation of Ukraine counterpart Grigoriy Surkis and UEFA President Michel Platini officially unwrapped the logo as the highlight of the launch proceedings. The ceremony was attended by the President of Ukraine, Viktor Yushchenko, and Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, representatives from the eight host
  14. Tadaaaa Video with the presentation of the logo Michel Platini during a conference, with the logo behind
  15. I forgot to post my comment about it (besides the pics) horray =w= Gotta say i love these mascots (honestly i like them even more that the recent experiments we had as mascots on the OG and WOG. They are very likeable, cute and dynamic (altough maybe a bit anime-ish). I hope to see pics of them practicing sports like with the Fuwas
  16. And there ya go, Lyo and Merly Lyo My Story Lyo (pronounced as "Leo"), the "Lion of the Youth Olympics", is a lion cub with a mane as fiery as his passion for life. Full of youthful energy, Lyo is always on the go, exploring and discovering new things and playing sports.

He enjoys making friends from all over the world and learning about their different cultures. He is fun-loving and wants
  17. ...now talking seriously, freedom is one thing, and abusing of freedom is another. I could have accepted these protests on 2008 because China doesnt give a damn about freedom. But to do this on one of the countries with the highest freedom of expression level in the world (at least for me) is just abusive. Law should be more forceful against those little attention whores..
  18. *sigh* i guess we need Mr Plow back to job ''Mr. President, those young people are about to get a dose of reality.''
  19. *sigh* I had the hope that a south american city would host the games, but i guess that all the problems happening here on the region (mainly because of our whacko inmature politicians ) scared P.A.S.O in the end. Congratulations to Toronto, you were the best bid from the very beggining c: . I'm sure you will make a Pan Am Games of the same level (or much better) than Rio 2007. I hope these games and the WOG build the bridge for Canada to reach a SOG (like the 2007 pan am games helped Rio on getting the 2016 ones).
  20. Well there are a lot of indian members on the net talking about the CWG, but most of them are on the Skyscrapercity forums :U Go here and you'll find quite a good activity and most of the posters on this thread are indians http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.p...911&page=86
