rmcooper4: ozarkmatt: How farking awesome would it have been of all of a sudden Maiden popped up and played "The Trooper?"

Hell, Iron Maiden have a song called "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner." Seems like it would have been appropriate.


if they played The Trooper they would have been boo-ed right off the stage

/boo urns!!! boo urns!!

CreamFilling: The Bestest: Pontious Pilates: Toronto is putting a bid together for 2024. And I read a Yahoo article recently that says some local politicians in Toronto are considering a joint bid with Niagara Falls/Buffalo, NY. As a native WNYer, i think that would be cool as shiat, for the first international games to be held across the world's longest friendly border. BUT, I can't imagine who among anyone involved would say "You know, Toronto made a good case for themselves in their last two bids, but you know what they're missing that would put them over the top? BUFFALO."

..actually, a cross-border bid might do just that. Has that ever been done before? Closest thing that comes to my mind was when South Korea and Japan jointly hosted the World Cup.

Can you imagine the mess at the border checkpoints with people trying to move back and forth? It would be a logistical and security nightmare.


Yeah, a cross border Olympics will never happen in Buffalo. We've needed a new bridge into Canada since forever, and the locals, state and Feds have been fighting over it for almost 20 years. Olympics in the Buffalo area will just never happen--we're too f*cked up politically.

DamnYankees: babysealclubber: It's not a good sign that either people weren't asked to perform their own songs, or those same people refused to perform.

Did you imagine they'd be able to arrange a Pink Floyd reunion? They are Olympic organizers, not gods.


Gilmour would have done it. Waters is the problem, but for that song he's not vital.

And STFU Seacrest

Oh jesus christ.

STOP IT RIGHT NOW, RUSSELL BRAND.
 
2012-08-12 09:34:44 PM  
Would "On the Turning Away" have been a better song choice? Being the Closing Ceremony?

I was actually impressed with Russel Brand. The bar he had to clear was super-low though.
 
2012-08-12 09:35:10 PM  
You know, I'm not hating this Russell Brand cover. It's actually decent.

Mrtraveler01: I know others may be pissed at us but you just made my night. :)


I aim to please
 
2012-08-12 09:35:13 PM  

Mrtraveler01: CTV had five commercial breaks in the first hour, they got better after that during this musical hour.

Did they edit the hell out of this like NBC is doing?


I wouldn't be surprised if they did take out some bits and pieces to accommodate the commercial breaks, but they did include numerous elements that NBC has cut so far (marathon medal ceremony, tribute to the volunteers, Ray Davies, etc, etc...)

make me some tea: DamnYankees: So they are playing a cover of Pink Floyd. Lame.

Where's Oasis? They playing?

Yes. For the most part.


So I DO have reason to keep watching this, after all, apparently.

...so how many other songs can Russel Brand slaughter? This is amazingly bad.

GOO GOO GAH JOOB indeed.

He actually does a good job.

Dammit. Is that the British comedian singing? I was hoping they had resurrected Benny Hill. I love his songs.

Is this supposed to symbolize something or does everyone need a large dose of LSD to understand it?

No spoilers.

Same thing with Bowie. He hasn't performed in at least six years.

Not sure why they went with the Pinball Wizard cover, other than to give the Kaiser Chiefs something to do, but that was a pretty solid cover.


The KC cover was good, but the Who are currently performing and Gilmour always plays at shiat like this

It isn't as bad as I was afraid it'd be, actually. At least he didn't fark it up as badly as Bono did.

I'm pretty sure it's the direct result of a large dose of LSD.
