  1. The Disney evening parade in Hong Kong has the same kenitic sculpture but it lights up. Here it is on Youtube
  2. I didn't read the descriptions before seeing the logo. I was staring at it for the longest time. I thought it was a white plate with long uncut sushi roll in the middle and the Japanese sun.
  3. Pan Am just started but people around the world are still fascinated with the dead racoon in Toronto. It's still trending on twitter.
  4. I totally forgot that Wayne lit the outdoor cauldron by himself.
  5. I was thinking the same thing. I though an athlete from Ontario would be last torch bearer.
  6. The only thing I like about this opening ceremony was the Lacross/fire segment and the guardians idea. Part of the show has really awful lighting.
  7. Thank God is getting better. The beginning was horrible. So far I only liked the fire segment. It feels like a concert than an opening ceremony.
  8. The concept is very similar to Vancouver. Mythological creatures that are created from different parts of animals that are native to the place where the Olympic is being held. The Olympic pokemon family is growing. I wonder what Korea and Japan mascots will look like?
  9. If Hello Kitty and Quatchi (Vancouver mascot) had a love child it will look like the yellow mascot.
  10. Reminds me so much of Vancouver 2010 mascots. I do like them:)
  11. Woman who lit 2014 olympic flame in sochi tweeted a racist photo of Barack Obama. http://sports.nationalpost.com/2014/02/07/woman-who-lit-2014-olympic-flame-in-sochi-tweeted-a-racist-photo-of-barack-obama/
  12. The Sochi's cauldron is basically a very simplified design of the mythological firebird. The neck and it's head is sticking out of the ground while the wings is forming the pool.

  14. The instrumental music that is playing in the background is from the song called "Long may you run" by Neil Young. His a grammy award winner and He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. Less is more? London is more complicated in design compare to Vancouver. Vancouver only have four legs while London has hundreds of legs. But London was able to pull it off very well. Vancouver had technical issues unfortunately it happened on the live show.
