  1. After seeing Incheon and Gwanju ceremonies, I'm afraid of PyeongChang Ceremonies in a temporary venue... K pop, comunication, simplicity... the recurrent topics.... mmmmm......
  2. Come on!!! Find the differences... (Albertville '92 torch...) Indeed, Vancouver was bit similar to Sydney torch.... Actually, the same design company designed both of them...
  3. ... And finally, Chile won.... Chile, Champion of Copa America 2015
  4. Can't believe it... Less than a week to go and no rehearsals on the stadium for the Opening Ceremony??? Really it will be a Cirque du Soleil play... not an Olympic ceremony as we have known so far.... Really I hope to eat my words....
  5. Honestly, I think we are facing the most creative, innovative and best Olympic Torch ever.... The desing of the Torch this time get to the top!!!!! Really... The colors, the innovation, the vivid movement, and dynamism.... that energy is te classical Brazilian spirit... But I still love the London Torch design, elegant, simple and with class.... reflecting the British spirit... My favorite torchs are: Salt Lake 2002: Love the ice sensation... too elegant.. And so far Salt Lake cauldron is my favorite... Beijing 2008: Love the design, colors and the topic (rolled paper) at that time ... Hence, lots of similarities have been made... Sydney 2000 : Love the dyanmism at that time: the curve of the boomerang and the Opera House roof represented on it. White and blue colors gave me a fresh sensation: beach and joyfull... Seoul 1988 : Elegant... May be an overloaded design... but love the colors reminds me thousands years of culture, like trying to say "a golden culture" Lillehammer 1994: Simply, but innovative... the wood with fire at the top really works... Nagano 1998 : The colors really liked me... also may be a little overloaded, but it carries the Japanese spirit on it, clearly... Atlanta 1996 : Don't know why, but I love it... maybe for its simplicity... elegant.... For me, the Torch I dislike the most: Almost every old torches who looked like toilet plungers Barcelona '92: Ironically, one of the best games ever had one of the ugliest torch ever... It seemed like a piece of iron taken out of any garage... no sense... no form... no colors... it looked like too heavy, difficult to find an appereance thaat reminds me something easily... The worst... Albertville 1992 which really looked like a piece of turd....
  6. Now live.... Opening Ceremony!!! http://www.livefisu.tv/live/event/1037107
  7. The sneak peak looks better than Incheon... but, anyway.... presenting K Pop it's kind of ... how can I say... Kitsch.. cheesy... dumbo... I don't know...
  8. They won't top Kazan, anyway!!!!! Besides, the stage has nothing to do with Kazan stage... Only some cover over the grass.... Having seen the Asiad 2014 Opening Ceremony we can not expect someting great.... Anyway.. let's watch...
  9. So... They should have considered to use another stage, instead... But regional Games are having an increasing way to present them to the worls (specially considering that all ceremonies can be seen on YouTube anytime anywhere) Look at these examples: Rio, Guangzhou, Doha (both Asiad and Pan Arabic Games), Mersin, Singapore, Baku, Kazan... etc etc etc.. Why not Toronto....????? In some cases, the regional Games ceremonies have been even better than Olympic ones (Kazan better than Sochi, Baku better than London) Otherwise, we have to wait 4 years time something big for Lima in 2019. Peruvians surely will make a big effort to present the country to the world as best as possible.... Sure, they will....
  10. They surely will be... any case they will be such as Rio ceremonies.... Let's prepare to watch a Cirque du Soleil act instead masive or tech displays....
  11. OMG.... Just a week to go and no pics fro the Opening Ceremony??... are they having reharsals on the stadium, already? Surely, it will be someting inferior of wat we have seen so far (SEA Games and Baku)
  12. Korea are turning down ceremonies as it happened in the Asiad 2014, in comparison with what they did id China in 2010... (too lavish in my opinion)
  13. Hope this me, too.... I am expecting a Cirque du Soleil show more than a traditional amazing Olympic Ceremony.... SEA Games did it well, too although they were a Sochi reminder.....
  14. I think the same.... anyway I don't think Toronto ceremonies will disapoint us... and Beijing IAAF either..... I wonder about Universiade OC in Korea.... They won't top Kazan...
  15. AMAZING CEREMONY!!! Well done Baku.... Now this topic start to finish and we see again in Toronto thread!!!! See ya' in TO2015 Olympic ceremonies lovers!!!!
  16. Fire segment .. Barcelona again... and the stadiums with Leds outside.... JUST AMAZING!!!!!!
  17. The sea waves.... Deja Vu Barcelona '92 OC Mar Mediterraneo segment... Can you believe after 23 years Barcelona ceremonies still are influence on these ceremonies?????
  18. Drawing on the sand.... Deja Vu of Delhi 2010 OC and Sochi presentation at Vancouver 2010 Paraympics CC
  19. That is why Michel Bachelet did not make any speech and they did not show any image of her during the opening ceremony of Copa America (one of the worst ceremonies ever, by the way...) She only took a selfie with the players at the dreesing room after the opening match..... LOL :wacko: :blink:
  20. Truly spectacuar the technological segment!!! Amazing!!!!!!
  21. An Azerbajan State Minister stated that these Games had located Azerbaijan in the World Map..... Do you agree??
  22. Do you remember the eternal speeches of Vasquez Raña for Pan Am Opening Ceremonies??? Until in Rio 2007 the crowd laughedt at him and in 2011 was incredibly shorter.....
  23. More tan that, the economical crisis was excesive in 1975 (500% inflation rates) and no budgent were avaiable at all..... Remember the World Cup in Argentina 1978 while the Opening was taking place in Monumental Stadium, a torture center was too close to it..... That is called DICTATORSHIP!!!!
  24. Fist Lady nation.... oversurgery detected!!!! Free Azerbaijan!!!!
  25. Are they going to say when Azerbaijan will be a free nation with no distatorships or repression and press blocking??? hehehe That is why Pinochet resigned the Pan Am in Santiago de Chile scheduled for 1987 ... because of the international press pressure and reports.....
