World's press are just being nice. There are some scathing reviews though, like Forbes. Also, I didn't watch NBC, I watched a no commentary uncut version. The opening ceremony was boring. The absolute highest point of it was maybe Rowan Atkinson.

Alrighty then.

Go re-read the thread.
Kiddie asks very silly question.
Kiddie gets mocked for asking very silly question in classic Fark snarky fashion.
Kiddie gets tetchy over being mocked, says "no need to be an asshole" to snarker
I point out that the snarkee, not the snarker, is the asshole.
And you reach for the tired old "vagina" line.

So yes, I think we've established that you are the dick.


Well, here's the good news:

I learned a new word. 'Prorogue': to end a session of Parliament without dissolving said Parlament.

I also learned that in 1999 HRM Queen Elizabeth II refused to transfer authority to order military strikes in Iraq to Parliament directly (presumably during Clinton's 'Regime Change' push) which made me admire her even more.

So, there's that.

Now, go home and get your shine box.

Trance750: Spiralmonkey: Trance750: EngineerAU: Fark Rye For Many Whores: Could've been more believable. Why just her ankles getting into the chopper? Why not a body double for that. Then the double jumps into a target(but it's a room that will hide you) and out walks the queen, who's been hiding there.

I suspect they were already pushing the limit of what she was willing to do even with the short bit filmed in the palace. Most of the actual power of the monarchy is gone, they've really only have prestige left. It wouldn't do for the institution to become part of humorous pop culture.

I know nothing but UK Politics and don't pretend to, but does she not appoint the Prime Minister?

No. She can't appoint anybody, but there is a polite bit of fluff that the Queen asks whoever won the election if they will be Prime Minister, but that is the only person she can ask. It's not like if she doesn't like the person she can veto it or anything.

I've heard The Monarch can have the Prime Minister removed via 'Royal Command'. Is that true?


Technically true I suppose, but not in real life. The Queen doesn't have any power in reality. The wiki is quite a good explanation, but the easiest way of looking at it is the monarch of the day does the head of state type things while the Prime Minister is actually in charge - somewhat, while being answerable to the Cabinet - Prime Minister just means 'first among equals', not 'the only one'.

Another polite fiction is when an MP resigns - MPs are technically forbidden from resigning, so instead they take The Chiltern Hundreds. A member of parliament can't accept a paid office while serving as an MP, so when they want to resign they apply for the position of Crown Steward and Bailiff which allows them to leave the House of Commons. Tony Blair took the Chiltern Hundreds.

Not really, and hearing those moronic commentators pretend the queen and Daniel Craig actually jumped out of a helicopter was even more ridiculous. The whole thing's superfluous. All the absurd nationalistic marching around and the absurd "spectacle"; who even watching opening ceremonies? Hell, most of the events get ignored by the majority of viewers as well.

Not really. She more recognizes who won the election, but if the monarch refused to for some reason it wouldn't change anything, it'd just make the monarchy look silly and powerless.

My head jerked when they were talking about Pakistan. I mean really? I tried to remember back to 1984 and whether the announcers said "and here are the dastardly rooskies, who the world is watching for any nogoodnik activities, and their lovely gymnasts."

Ok, yeah, I'll admit there was a smidge of interesting tidbits scattered here and there. But it all tended to sensationalism. As i recall, the sum commentary on Uganda was:

Commentator 1: "something something something Idi Amin" (said in a gleeful tone of derision)

Commentator 2: (choking sound of disbelief, followed by 10 seconds of uncomfortable silence until the cameras cut away from Uganda).


We can do better than that. It's not informative, its not witty, it just makes Americans look like idiotic assholes. There's more to be said about Uganda than that.

/was highly amused to see the male commentator completely taken in by the queen parachuting bit: "THIS IS AN ENTRANCE THE WORLD WILL BE TALKING ABOUT."

During the opening of the Atlanta Olympics, I was left breathless at the sight of Muhammad Ali making his way up to light the Olympic fire. He was obviously having difficulty, and he must have known there was a good chance he might stumble and fall in front of the entire world.

I don't mind saying that I was somewhere between "clearly recognizable watery eyes", and "uncontrollable sobbing" when I recognized his face.

Then the idiot accouncers picked exactly the worst. possible. moment. ever. to remind us that this was the legendary Muhammad Ali, blahblahblahJESUSCHRISTSHUTTHEFARKUPYOUMOTHERFARKINGIDIOTS.

Bungles: In conclusion to my 24 hours of rabbiting on about it, here's my final analysis of the (BBC version) ceremony.

Bucolic pastures transformed into industrial hell: Inspired, and just the sort of thing, a genuine sense of history and theatrics, that the UK can do well.

Releasing the balloon with the rings that gave the final shot, live from space: Brilliant, but you'd only know what it was if you read the onscreen labels. I presumed it was CGI when I saw it.

Queen's arrival: Great, very daft and very British.

Mr Bean: Clearly for the Japanese and Germans. They love Mr Bean far more than the UK does.

Great Ormond Street funded by Peter Pan: a little odd, but immensely enjoyable, and two of the things the UK is rightly proud of. 100 foot Voldemort and 60 flying Mary Poppins. Can't argue with that.

7/7 tribute: perfectly pitched and haunting. One of the highlights.

Athlete's parade: as long and dull as always, but the green grassy hill for the flags was a nice touch.

1960s-2010 musical medley: Weakest part for me. Great soundtrack, but the whole "lots of people doing synchronized things" is * exactly* what needed to be avoided in order to avoid Beijing comparisons. China is awesome at that. The UK isn't. It looked cheap and daft. Tim Berners-Lee at the end of it was great though.

Bike butterflies: Ok, we're clearly filling time here. But why not. It looked nice.

Paul McCartney: Oh god. Why not do a Beatles hologram, a la Tu Pac? That would have been awesome.

Cauldron lighting: Excellent. Prettiest and best symbolism for a Cauldron so far. Just peaked the fire arrow one for me.


I've finally got the YouTube clip of the Abide With me/Tribute to Dead segment done. My first YT video so I apologise in advance for my merely moderate technical skills.

exvaxman: I got a copy of the BBC broadcast since the NBC one was, well, just f'ing awful.
Night and day difference. Listening to a BBC radio interview show over the olympics coverage, the typically understated BBC said that the NBC coverage was "painful".


It's like Costas went out of his way to find the nastiest, most petty and snide "factoids" about some of the smaller countries. Way to pump them up Bob, you enormous douchenozzle! We also heard a high-hat-like rhythmic clicking through the first hour or more of the broadcast. Changing channels revealed it was only NBC, both HD and standard signals. Not sure if it was NBC's or Comcrap's problem but it pretty much negated all the many audio engineers' hard work until it thankfully, mysteriously stopped.

I really liked the James Bond sequence, but there was one *huge* continuity error that gave the whole thing away, and I'm surprised nobody has mentioned it yet: The parachute.

Any building housing the monarch, or vehicle transporting the monarch, displays the royal standard. Therefore the fact that both parachutes were the union jack, and not one union jack and one royal standard, completely gave away that it was a stunt performer jumping and not Her Majesty personally. Someone's going to wind up in the tower for that, I'm sure.

There's a reason why those two aren't professional sport commentators. And now we know why. NBC should have chucked the more famous faces for real sport commentators who know when to shut up when things are happening and when to chat during the quiet parts.

Oh, and the opening ceremony was the cheesiest opening ceremony that I have ever seen for any country.

It was also the most fun.

I loved watching it and trying to make out all of the references because they were going fast and furious. It was less an Olympic opening ceremony and more like a West End musical. I was entertained.

See, Beijing had an opening ceremony. London had a show. And it was an awesome show.
 
2012-07-28 05:19:40 PM  
I had the opportunity to see the ceremony live (thank FSM, BBC 1, and the Internets) and the NBC presentation. I thought I was watching something completely different.

NBC clearly did a cut and paste with commercials and Phelps, et. al. We're going to stick with "Auntie Beeb" for the rest of the Games.

NBC: Nothing But Commercials.

"Welcome back. While we gone Di Arrunnzio scored 7 hits and took the lead 8 - 2 in this gold medal match. We'll be back after this message for Budwiser Clydesdale Piss."
"Welcome back. While you were gone Vallezzia came back and won the match 15 -14 in overtime. This has been Brent Slackjaw, and if you had been watching our sister network you could have seen the medal ceremony 45 minutes ago. And now back to whoever it is in our studio in New York with a list of events that have been tape delayed for our convenience."

NBC might be an American network, but they are making a dog's breakfast if not a total shambles of these Games. I am so glad we lined up that condo in Rio.
