Vancouver Olympics

Anyone watch the Olympics opening ceremony last night? Tyler and I did...well, in the end it was mostly me. Tyler fell asleep.

The parade of nations was cool. But I felt really bad for the country in-between the US and Canada. They pretty much got shafted; they didn't even show them or announce them on tv. Sad.

The show itself was, eh, alright. It was a little weird. I understand where they were going with part of it, but Aborigines were a little overdone. I thought their dancing in the beginning (before the Parade of Nations) was a bit long...they could have summed that up into five minutes. (It's not that I don't like the Aborigines, it's just not necessarily the most exciting thing for me to watch). I did like the use of projectors. That was AH-MAZE-ING. I was baffled at the technology they have today. Weren't the whales swimming on the floor cool? I think that was my favorite thing of the night.

The opera singer was ridiculous: her voice, her dress, her hair. I put the tv on mute after the first note came out of her mouth. That's all I have to say.

The BEST thing about the Olympics, by far, is the graphics. Oohdelalee, they are gorgeous. I want them in my house.

WAY TO GO, graphic designers. Way to show the world you rock.

I watched the opening ceremony too...I guess it was cool, but it was no Beijing, haha. Did you see the torch-tower mishap at the end? Sad day.
Agreed that the graphics are really awesome, though!!
