I'm about to take out a fatwa on Seacrest.

HOORAY ERIC IDLE!
 
2012-08-12 10:02:36 PM  
Best song of the night!!!
 
2012-08-12 10:02:36 PM  
OH MY GOD thanks for the spoiler that it's Eric Idle. Now waiting for the BLEEEEP.

DickDarlington: OK, we get it... the Beetles were British.... move on....


That wasn't the Beatles

BEAT HIM

BEAT SEACREST WITH CRICKET BATS

This just ceased to suck. Oh my god.

DamnYankees: Here's my hope - they close this ceremony with Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. Make it happen, Britain.


The six hour tape delay kills the AreYouAWizard-ness of this.

Tim Allen.


YES! That's it! Thank you. It was driving me mad.

This reminds me of when China had 10,000 people beating drums...

Oh wait, no it doesn't
 
2012-08-12 10:03:28 PM  
Wow, they do suck. WTF, NBC producers? Do you tell all your kids what their presents are ahead of time, too?

'Mr. Blue Sky' was ELO, not the Beatles.

I dont have any spoilers, for what its worth. That was just my guess.

If I were Ryan Seacrest I'd spoil that for you.

(it's better than you imagine)
 
2012-08-12 10:04:10 PM  
Eric Idle! About time.
 
2012-08-12 10:04:15 PM  

Hector Felix: Gosling: I posted this toward the end of the live thread; since I don't care that My Blog Sucks, I'll provide it another time for the tape-delayed crew.

London 2012: the denouement. A recap of the Games for those who've been asleep the past three weeks.

Or at least, an Olympics recap done my way: with acknowledgement that countries other than the United States and medals other than gold exist.

No mention of the equestrians, including the New Zealander who was riding in his 8th games (I think), nor the 71 year-old-contestant from Japan. You are not as inclusive as you like to think.

NZ came a respectable 16th.

themeaningoflifeisnot: Looks like lots of athletes are exiting before the show is over. Probably scurrying to get a seat at the pub.


No, they're looking to get one last ultra-mega-fark-fest going before they have to say goodbye. Young, horny, hot people in perfect shape have better things (like fellow Olympians) to do than be forced to watch this shiat.

WOMANS GO HOME!!

Bungles: The £10 million LED "pixels" that they've installed in the stadium (a 3x3 grid on every seat) will now become standard everywhere, I suspect.


It does look seriously farking cool...

Don't' ruin it for me. I'm still waiting the USA basketball finals...
 
2012-08-12 10:04:37 PM  
Ok, this is funny.
 
2012-08-12 10:04:41 PM  
Why are muslims interrupting Eric Idle's song?
 
2012-08-12 10:04:41 PM  
Harry, BUSTED whistling along.

I aint' even mad.
 
2012-08-12 10:04:48 PM  
And now for something completely different.
 
2012-08-12 10:04:56 PM  

tlchwi02: same, did not want to watch it. but actually, it was pretty funny. the parts they showed in the promos were way better done in the show itself and they had a few bits not in the promo. and matthew perry actually is pretty funny in his piece. also i had a call out to one of my favorite movies ever that came out of nowhere.


I think we're finding out the root cause for NBC's low ratings.

Eric Idle is just the same as he was before.

sarahthustra: CALL ME, PRINCE HARRY


During the BBC broadcast they called him Prince Henry and on the screen it said Prince Henry and we actually thought they got his name wrong. Oops.

phaseolus: DickDarlington: OK, we get it... the Beetles were British.... move on....

That wasn't the Beatles


Well, in all fairness, I've heard it said that ELO was what the Beatles would have sounded like if they had stayed together.

Or maybe I just imagined that.

Wait for it...

Gosling: WHY DID YOU HAVE TO SPOIL THAAAAAAAT


Seacrest is the kind of guy who sits next to you when you're watching a movie he's seen and you haven't, constatntly saying "Ooh oh, look! he's about to get killed unexpectedly! Oh oh! and now, we find out rosebud is a sled. . . . See!?!"

make me some tea: Why are muslims interrupting Eric Idle's song?


Jihad.
 
2012-08-12 10:05:42 PM  
And there's the bleep!
 
2012-08-12 10:05:46 PM  
FUN FACT:

The world feed broadcast the word 'shiat' uncensored. Let's see what NBC does.

...nope. Bleeped.
 
2012-08-12 10:05:46 PM  
BEEP
 
2012-08-12 10:05:48 PM  
Nice bleep, NBC.
 
2012-08-12 10:05:49 PM  
THEY BLEEPED IT ARGH. :(

Stupid NBC.
 
2012-08-12 10:05:50 PM  
I don't know why, but I found the bleep hilarious.
 
2012-08-12 10:05:52 PM  
FARK YOU NBC!!
 
2012-08-12 10:05:53 PM  
A bleep in the closing ceremonies?
 
2012-08-12 10:05:54 PM  
Why are they throwing cocaine at him...


And BBC didn't BLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP a damn thing.

2012-08-12 10:06:16 PM  
They didn't bleep that out on the BBC. I guess Americans aren't ready for adulthood.

It's after 10pm, that would've been just fine with the FCC too.
 
2012-08-12 10:06:32 PM  
I should just turn the TV off right now, shouldn't I? This is awesome.
