Bronze (3/16)



  1. does anyone have pictures of the cauldron in whistler? i was watching the Lindsey Vonn medal ceremony and saw the cauldron in the background behind the raising of the 3 flags. had no idea there was one up there.
  2. i sure hope you're right. the idea of an indoor cauldron at BCP is killin' me! they've added pyro equipment for the fireworks around the "ring" of BCP, maybe they added a gas line there as well for the flame? hmmm
  3. did any watch the Today Show this morning? they had a few clips of the opening ceremony rehearsal from last night. it actually gave you a good look of a particular segment of the ceremony. looks grand and great!
  4. yea the blue plastic film that they tell you to remove off of appliances! if it is aborignal-inspired, it may be apart of the art work. i've seen similar silver native jewelery w/ that same blue-ish tint...
  5. "major" as in big enough for a "ring of fire" around BCP? that would be insane.
  6. i think thats b/c BR/BRplayers have become more widely available and affordale since Beijing 08. As well, majority of new LCD/Plasma/LED TVs now are fully compatible w/ BR.
  7. i'm hearing that they may be projecting the olympic rings on the roof of bc place at the start of the games. it will be visible from a birds eye view. can anyone confirm this?
  8. that is the same questions i've been wondering about. i wonder how they will incorporate that in to the lighting at BCP, if at all. from what i've read some ppl have said that in the past olympics, the secondary cauldrons are lit w/ little notice...
  9. outdoors at the Jack Poole Plaza? hard to tell where that is
  10. canada hockey place: will they by covering up the "GM Place" signage and replacing it w/ the Rings? I haven't seen them do that yet.
  11. the birds nest is only one of the most impressive free standing structure, ok slight exaggeration...but it doesn't need anything else to impress. bc place on the other hand...i don't think they'd have enough shrink wrap to beautify it like someone said, i'd rather more $ be spent on the inside. i assume that the white roof will be multicolored similar to the sails at canada place.
  12. 3-4 mins of focusing on the singer would be boring no? during the torino closing ceremony, bocelli sang a song and they had performers dancing w/ the camera cutting to different things going on in the stadium. My link
  13. im not entirely sure...it sounded similar to "i believe", but then again that was about 2weeks ago, before i heard "i believe". and it was muffled behind the tent and the "1 and 2 and 3 and 4...step, turn lift and down!" orders being barked! i gotta say that my first reaction was "sarah mclachlan?". i wish i had that iphone app that identifies songs haha.
  14. if you go down to the plaza of nations, right in front of the casino entrance, you can hear them practicing for what seems to be either the opening or closing ceremony in one of those big white tents. about 2 weeks ago i was down there walking my dog and heard loud music, sounded like a muffled sarah mclachlan, and a choreographer yelling out dance instructions. now that the "i believe" theme song was revealed, i think it was that song that i heard.
  15. i guess it would depend on how you interpret "venue security closure" and if that applies just to vehicles. for example, the map had the olympic village area as "venue security closure" and that area is 100% closed off to the public. however, areas like concord pacific place, canada hockey place are listed as "venue security closure" as well but will be opened to the public b/c a lot of the pavilions and free events will take place there. we'll find out in 14 days! http://www.vancouver2010.com/dl/00/23/22/updated-venues-jan-12_82d-gf.pdf
