**spoilers** Opening Ceremony Content **spoilers**


Recommended Posts

I am just hoping that these ceremonies do not reflect ripe ole' canadian cheese. Somehow I think it may just be teetring on that with what we have heard already. Yes, I can appreciate that we will have to really consider the lighting and all that but ...... "say it a little louder so the world can hear?" Isn't that a bit quirky even for a chorus to a song?

If we would call every song cr*p just based on its lyrics, probably 80 % of the most popular songs ever would have landed in the trash can. And also one should wait for the whole lyrics before judging whether they make sense or not.

What pees me off is the version of O Canada. Really pisses me off--totally unable to sing along. WTF is the point of having an anthem geared to singing along if some eejit's gonna re-arrange it into

But that should worry you because we all know from experience...... and bad experience at that......that canadian taste isn't globa taste.

A bit underwhelmed with the video but am still optimistic how it all goes together. All this talk about having less performers than beijing, vancouver compenated with the projections. Take that away

Ok for those talking about the pyro effects on buildings near the BC Place, this has nothing to do with the OC, but with a show called Ignite the Dream, as part of the cultural olympiad, which will be held every night from February 12-28. More info here:

Is everyone always this negative before an opening ceremony? :unsure:

Maybe I'm being too Wilsonian about this, but I don't really care about the ceremony. Float some canoes through the air, heck, have a maple syrup fountain for all I care. Attending an Olympic opening ceremony is dream come true for me...I'm really beside myself just to be in the audience. :)

Vancouver and its current provincial government has very good relations with the State of California and the Governator.

Well, given that California's economy alone is larger (by about half a trillion $, if I'm not mistaken) than the GDP of the entire country of Canada, I don't think they have much choice...plus who wants to mess with the Governator?!

:rolleyes:

Apparently it's terrible - like REALLY bad

Also the audience participation thing is sketchy, confusing, and people are like "WTF"?

From what twitter postings I can find, they're not using the actually props in the audience, just being told what to do.
