  1. I was looking at Sochi presentaion during the closing ceremony of the 2010 games. They also have horses that are made out of lights and were animated during the opera section of the presentation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwtyYN-k-I8
  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  8. Video of the Olympic cauldron complete with flame. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cR2W6TlbbXc
  9. It looks like an erect penis. Play with the camera angle and you will have the olympic rings as the balls.
  10. Sochi's Olympic torch goes up in flame. I'm glad it didn't explode, scary. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=24e_1388299389&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
  11. Pole vault world champion Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia condemns homosexuality, criticizes competitors for rainbow nails. Apparently she is slated to become the mayor of the Olympic Village in Sochi. http://sports.nationalpost.com/2013/08/15/pole-vault-world-champion-yelena-isinbayeva-condemns-homosexuality-criticizes-competitors-for-rainbow-nails/
  12. The Olympic cauldron is in the stadium? I've been watching the track & field events for the past few days and I didn't notice the cauldron at all. Instead I notice that scary cylope mascot lurking around Usain Bolt all the time.
  13. I guess the new trend for Olympic cauldrons are the self assembling kind with legs and not very tall. I wonder if Sochi will have a crystal chandeliers as their cauldron?
  14. Some short video clips of the Olympic cauldron in daylight before it was moved. You can also see the Mayor of London promoting the orbit. https://www.youtube....channel&list=UL
  15. The cauldron looks kind of ugly when the flame is not on.
  16. Looking at the pictures. The cauldron looks beautiful when it's not bunch up like a flower bouquet on fire. It looks beautiful when it is open up. Also the Olympic cauldron has now overshadowed the last the torch bearers that lit it. I can't remember who lit the cauldron.
  17. I wonder how much the cauldron cost. It looks so complicated to build.
  18. The petals reminds me of the hats that the medal bearer has on.
