But I never said anything about the opening ceremony, which one of the greatest things I've ever seen. I watched it on a big screen in a pub, drinking a pint. Could I be more British about it?
My favourite part of the opening ceremony was the industrial bit with the factory towers and then forging the rings. It kinda, well not 'fell apart' I just didn't enjoy the rest as much as that. Felt like I had dessert before dinner. Or something. The rest didn't live up to the beginning for me so I couldn't enjoy it completely.
I'm probably enjoying this more cause I'm an old fucking fuck and its playing all my jams. Annie Lennox! You cannot NOT like her Otto :(
Though they should have told George to fuck off with his new song. Just sing Wham stuff or classic George, not new shit he wants to promote.

The closing ceremony's not as bad as the bit I glimpsed at was. I'll watch it in one go tomorrow when I'm less tired.
What is fucking dull though is all the 'facebook comedians' come out to act like it's twitter and give a full commentary
I avoid all that shit. I didn't even want to come on NG for fear negative comments would ruin my enjoyment.
The pixel things look good tonight. Also idk, I just love the Union Jack in the middle and all the nations inside the parts, plus playing Imagine with the world (well world athletes) listening feels kinda special to me. Like it might mean something.
