  1. Love this article written before the OC http://www.salon.com/ent/tv/2010/02/12/olympic_opening_canada/index.html?source=newsletter
  2. OK I think after the shock of the malfunction has wore off and put into perspective, I want to say again I absolutely loved the ceremony (while listening to Both Sides Now). It showcased Canada beautifully, and friends are telling me they never knew Canada is so diverse (after I explained the Aboriginal and fiddling tapdancers to them). And I remember in the spoiler thread people are mocking the toilet wrapping at the top, but man that was a beautiful centerpiece! Northern lights to trees to mountains to city skylines, the projections really shined. Upon thinking about the OC, it really did inspire me and is making me miss Canada so much more
  3. I have to say I loved the cultural segment, of course it will never be as grand as Beijing but for a Winter Games it was very very well done. The low light for me was the entering of the Olympic Flame though... The floor looked bland and maybe cuz of the acoustics but it really didn't feel 'exciting' with the mini relay inside BC place. Of course the final cauldron lighting... a real OH SH!T moment but I think the general public may not know (yet) that there were suppose to be four pillars... a bit underwhelmed and anti climatic at the end definitely. A-
  4. Okay the lip sync is pretty obvious...I tihnk Bryan Adams missed his cue to begin singing too
  5. Yay Taiwan!! LOL at the local broadcaster said "Here's the climax of the opening ceremony"
  6. LOL at the pregnant volunteer at the gate where athletes walk in working her dance moves. YOU GO GIRL!
  7. A bit late to comment but I enjoyed the Four First Nations Host segment, and I love it that they are in the parade of the nations to REALLY welcome the Athletes!
  8. This proud Canadian working in Asia will watch the OC proudly at home decked out in full gears purchased from vancouver2010.com!!! And I'm probably gonna cry seeing how I cried just watching the With Glowing Hearts / Des Plus Brillants Exploits videos by Vanoc...
  9. David Atkins Discusses The OC Some minor hints on what's going to happen tonight!
  10. I think they will be fine, a report said Cypress actually snowed earlier today for about 4 to 5 inches and the practices are going well.
  11. You are so ashamed that you wanted to move out of Canada? What was so shameful about it???
  12. Breeeath Mr. x already singing the national anthem from twitter reports... how are you gonna get through the actual thing! I am thoroughly hyped right now!!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHH!!!!111!!!11! Still hoping they will drape the roof as a final surprise (how long does it take??), and looking at the floor floor from the pix, I dont see hints of a hidden cauldron...
