Yeah, we lack that sort of precision.
Heh – yeah. We’ll just do our own thing – we’re blonde.
Before the Chinese junks in the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, there was a beautiful performance leading in – men in a green and yellow dip-dye costume, with a woman above them, dancing. The commentator (more on him later) saying Indian influence, but I think more Thai – Raju weighs in with Burmese. Any way, the costumes throughout the entire opening are absolutely beautiful – other than the silver futuristic drummers which worked for what it was, I guess, but not my favorite.
This really led off with the best portion of the performance I think. I love Chinese junks, I love the scroll on the floor – the display, the led. The costumes that lit up and formed the chinese coin – thing. People running as fast as they can at each other but still maintaining a circle (which, is where the precision comment came in). Amazing….
And really, what the hell with the commentator? If I had kept up with the put downs coming out of this f*cking moron… Let me remind you – these people have never won an Olympic medal – and these people here – they have no dream of getting a medal. And really – why are you even here??!! You [insert small country here] – you SUCK!!!
takonauts – octopus in space…
SHE LOOKS STONED!! Woman during the world/globe performance that was quiet at first. Then she started singing. She sings in the high-pitched voice like the Indians. Not my thing, but apparently it appeals to most of the world between India and China – they hold a great portion of the people..
And the oreo commercial – Asian girls are scary – but oreos make it all better.
And we just got a crotch shot of Bush – checking his watch because apparently all of this is so damn boring for the sob. Thank god his wife has slightly more manners (brains?) and at least appears to be enjoying herself. God, we pray for November to be a turning point, and January to be rid of this idiocy.
And in talking about hot – if this were in America, during the parade of nations, some Nelly would be playing, and there would be some wardrobe malfunctions for sure…
I have to say – never watching the parade of nations before – I can’t believe I’ve missed this. Since a child, I’ve loved the flags alone. But to see the people of the nations, to hear the music… ahhhh – love this. Different costumes/uniforms.
And I love hearing the Chinese pronounciation – Ja-ma-i-ca. hehe.
The scroll – amazing that it is used throughout. Amazing to begin with, but as a constant… I love the use in parade of nations – people walking through the pigment, transferring to the scroll, for a piece of art that will live for a period of time…
damn Spaniards – winning the Tour de France – who do we talk to about that? (commentator again…)
What asshole created the suits for the Hungary women? For once, even though the commentator was an ass, I couldn’t argue. Bleh.
Iraq was in the house. How did Bush react? Well, at least he’s aware enough not to be scratching his balls or checking his watch this time. I guess he’s on high alert considering the enemies with weapons of mass destruction are in front of him (yes.. that was alert on his face).
Could we be bigger assholes? “The only two women on the team… The daughters of prime ministers… but I’m *sure* that’s *just a coincidence*.”
Before even half of Latvia – the Chinese cheerleaders are done. They’re half-assin it at this point. They have cute shoes though, and I’m sure I would have given out before that.
ROMANIA – my homegirl’s country has nice, blue blazers. They’re very calming to look at.
Tuvalu – where my husband wants to move.
Tweaking? Venezuela likes *tweaking* … whatever, commentator dude.
Poland has more class than most with their clothing choice. The men look daPPER, THE women nice in their red dresses.
USA comes into the parade. Bush stands up, looks alert. His wife has the same smile plastered on her face as she has the entire time.
“My what a nice pole you have, Mr. America.”
Woooooooo! We’re just boobies away from Girls Gone Wild here.
Somewhere, later on, I learn Matt Lauer is the asshole commentator (I think). This guy doesn’t deserve to travel the world on an expense account. The bigot should be tied up in some ass-backwards town in rural America.
American asks how to say Thank You in other languages… how nice. Seriously – I’m not being a smart ass here.
