Was hoping that driver would stomp the gas and dump that rapper out.

YES PLEASE!!!

I like that Fatboy Slim thinks he's contributing.
 
2012-08-12 09:44:49 PM
Still don't understand why they didn't put the damn torch outside the stadium so everyone could see it.

NO WRITTEN IN THE STARS!

This is me having the NBC on, not giving a millishiat about the breathtaking super-spectacle unfolding on screen, and yet quite enjoying the moment somehow.
 
2012-08-12 09:45:09 PM
They're the UK, they could have had Clapton,Page and Townshend in a dueling guitar battle to the death,instead they give or their shiat top 40 crap.

I just remembered, Madonna is British now, right?

He brought the octopus. What else does he need to do?

topcon: What the fark? Kate Bush was on there and they didn't show it? JFC. Now I want to find a clip of it. She rarely ever sings live, either.


Sadly, Kate didn't make a live appearance. The rumour was just that.

themeaningoflifeisnot: At least they've got entertainment somewhat relevant to most of the Olympians, at least by age. No more Sir Paul McDouchebag.


Yeah, this isn't terrible and the athletes seem to be having a blast.

Taio Cruz is YouTube's most viewed UK musician with 40 million views.

melewen: FWIW, I haven't noticed any sound issues on the NBC broadcast. The sound was pretty inconsistent on the BBC feed though.

/Cox Cable in Northern VA


It was a world feed thing. The world feed had a couple sound glitches. NBC brings in a small army of their own people, so they had that particular problem worked out.

She wasn't there, they just played Running Up that Hill.

I wasn't looking at her smile.

If anyone's wondering why NBC cut the Kate Bush segment, my mother has just informed me that this (NBC-censored version of the) ceremony is "weird."
 
2012-08-12 09:46:30 PM
I visited the torch in Lake Placid last week. What a sad little thing, falling into disrepair.

Now thats comedy.

Wait? BBC News World carried the closing ceremony?

All the more reason to pester At&t u-verse to carry it.

Disco rap?

Mr. Chainsaw: athletes seem to be having a blast.


I honestly think that is most important. After all the hard work, the effort...they deserve to party a little!

No, their online feed. Accessed via Expat Shield.

Spice Girls reunion after this commercial. Time to take a crap, since I don't give one.

All that talent from the UK and we get this....

FriarReb98: smurfer: babysealclubber: 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

It was the other way round this time. Waters was asked but only for one song. He seemed to like the idea but Gilmour thought it was not enough.

::sigh:: Well, we had Live Aid, right?



Yes, and it was with Rick Wright. Gone but not forgotten.
 
2012-08-12 09:47:57 PM
Welp, they cut that Bee Gees tribute short.
