London 2012

Post by Caravan Ray » Sun Jul 29, 2012 4:00 am

Ok - Olympic Opening Ceremonies are cheesy and overly long by definition.

But that was pretty good. Edit about 2 hours out of it - and I would call it pretty awesome. Well done Danny Boyle.

What really pissed me off though - so much so that I will use CAPITAL LETTERS - Channel Nine here in Aus DID NOT SHOW THE WHOLE ATHLETE MARCH PAST!!! They missed a few countries.

That PISSES ME OFF. the march past is my favourite bit of the Olympics. I want:

- Every country
- Every country's outfits
- Banal background trivia about the dude/chick carrying every country's flag

I DID NOT GET THIS THIS YEAR!!!!

I actually sat at home - counting through the alphabet waiting "K" because I wanted to see the Kiribati team before I went shopping. (old timers will know I used to live in Kiribati) - Channel 9 jumped from frikking Kazakstan to Lebanon. Cunts. I farnarkaling hate that.

If Songfight could pass my displeasure onto the Australian Nine Network - I would be most appreciative.
Otherwise - I will continue wandering the streets shouting at people randomly.

We saw Kiribati, I remember seeing those guys and thinking, "hey, Caravan Ray used to live there" and my head is full of useless trivia.

Only one gold in the pool so far - it is a bad year for Australia.

But we are still beating New Zealand, and that is all that matters.

2.5 billion compared to 1.38 trillion on Bush's oil war. Totally would prefer science anyday.
