    Thumbs down Beijing 2008 Olympic Games: Opening Ceremony

    Wow!! Have you ever seen anything so amazing as that in your life?!! If you missed the opening ceremony you MUST watch it somehow online! I can't imagine how it felt to be there. I felt so much emotion from just watching video clips online. Wow, really powerful stuff.
    The Olympics are an amazing thing, even if you don't enjoy sports of any kind you must recognize the unity of the entire world every four years. It's more than just competition, it's humanity.

    If you don't want to watch the video for whatever reason(it is long, 1 hour) then at least look at the photos!

    Even if you don't think you'd be interested, you should force yourself to watch. A New Year's celebration happens once a year, the Olympics happen once every four.

    This is the video from NBC. You have to 'verify' your cable provider *wink* and you zip code. You have to install Microsoft Silverlight (not a big download or a hassle) and you can gain access to it.

    I like the British commentary just like when I watch football(soccer). So you can find some of those videos as well.

    Of all videos clips of it, at least watch this one!

    Edit: More videos

    I was tripping nuts. Nuff said. The part with the blocks rising up and down. I was shocked that people were inside of those doing that. I thought it was machines doing it.

    Better if it were somewhere where the government wasn't communist?? I don't see how the government or it's beef with Tibet or its own citizens should detract from the awe of this opening. I think China needed these games to help connect it to the rest of the world more. It was their chance to showcase themselves to the entire world.

    I sure did :3. US took out Japan. I'm kind of sad, but at the same time, proud. The US has a pretty decent Volleyball team.

    Anyway, the opening ceremony was phenomenal. I've never seen anything like it. Leave it to China to do something so spectacular.

    I hate to get off topic,but it looks like the Japanese girls hadn't played a day in their life,and dominated the second round.

    What are you talking about? They put up an incredible fight. Their saves were astounding, as well as defense. They put up a good fight. 1-3, and that's pretty good. Most of the other wins were like 2-0.

    Yeah, I'll stop the off-topic-ness now. I think we need a thread for discussing the Olympics' sports.

    Amen to that! The Ceremony was
    absolutely stunning!!!
    I especially loved the way that nine
    year old sang. She kind of reminded
    me of myself when i was younger.
    Except im latin..LOL
    But yeah, China totally topped the
    rest of the worlds opening ceremonies.
    ^_^
    I also liked the March of Nations.
    The Mexico flag was beautiful! ^o^
    Sorry. I got off topic >>; LOL
    We'll be togethersoon.

    The opening ceremony was definitely the best that I've ever seen- too bad I wasn't able to watch it live. I loved the part with the light-up drums, and the moving blocks. I also loved the 9 year old girl's singing. It was also so heart-warming, when I heard about the little boy, who was walking with Yao Ming T_T

    About the opening ceremony, I thought WOW. simply spectacular. I wanted to see/hear more drums though. XD. The girl floating in the air reminded me of Nikki Webster from Sydney 2000.


    Can't wait to watch our guys play the Dutch in Hockey. REMATCH.

    I saw most of it :] I enjoyed it. Obviously a lot of work and planning went into it >< I loved the drums at the beginning! And the floaty olympic rings I thought the whole thing was pretty awesome.

    I made it to about the beginning, and even though the actual show not including the walk of nations was spectacular, it still grew long and boring after a while. But I suppose it would be better to witness in real life.

    ...My favorite part was the walk of Nations, though. <_<;
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    The opening ceremonies were beyond amazing. I've never seen ANYTHING like that in my life. Amazing works of performance art! I dunno if my favorite part was the beginning with the drummers, or the part where all the martial arts men did a huge circular performance around the children.

    OR THE PART WITH THE LIGHT-UP COSTUMES OMG

    And wth was up with that globe? Man, whatever artist(s) they hired for all of this is(/are) a genius!(es) I was a little surprised to see Sarah Brightman performing, but not that surprised, since I know she's quite popular in Eastern Asian countries.

    I stopped watching at the walk of nations, though.

    Anyone know how quickly those commercial spots sold out?

    edit* Here's an article on the best of and worst of.

    Screw China and Screw the Olympics.

    The olympics are about peace, not oppression. A country committing deeds against humanity shouldn't host the olympics.

    Well have fun pouting in a corner then. This thread is about how amazing the opening ceremony was, not whether you think China deserved to host the Olympics (Which is irrelevant as people far more important than you made the decision). But we'll always have people trying to put a damper on our fun, jeez what's up with that? Yes, I realize there are starving people in the world at the very moment but I don't want to think about that when I'm getting married, riding a rollercoaster, drinking at my 21st birthday, and especially when I'm watching the opening ceremony to the 2008 Beijing Olympic games. :P

    The 1936 Summer Olympics were held in Germany while Hitler was in power. If you read the article, there was a boycott in the US but "President Roosevelt demanded the participation of U.S.A. in the Olympics, intending to keep the tradition of America being void of outside influence intact."

    So keep complaining, it's not going to do anything else but annoy other people.

    I really loved it! It was super original I loved the part when they were beating on the drums. That guy that thought of this... can't remeber his name but he's got a lot of imagination with that led screen. And when the drew the caligraphy on there and then lifted it up. ^____^ And then when the torch guy was lifted up into the air and they made it seem as if he was running on the top part of the building was awesome too!! It was allllll awesome!!!!!

    Right, because being nice to them, allowing them to do things, and accepting them as a nation and as a friend at a time like this is totally wrong and will only cause panic and chaos. We should totally isolate them, I mean, it always works, look at North Korea.
