Go nuts. I’m watching the hapless Mets.
July 27th, 2012
I’m watching Das Boot.
How much longer until Paul McCartney’s face completely melts off?
I laughed. I cried. It really, really, really, really, really, really fucking sucked.
Other than that it was pretty good.
Maureen from Canada
But it was for the children!!!
anybody watching olympics ceremony? IRONY anyone? Tolkien would have had a stroke (grass to iron)…seeing he prophesied Mordor…NHS (national health service) & Oldfields tubular bells???please! Sports or aggrandizement/advertising? watch for the well being of athletes (some countries) after the games…no moment of silence for Munich…
Danny Boyle says: “I was meant to be a priest until I was 14, I was going to transfer to a seminary near Wigan. But this priest, Father Conway, took me aside and said, ‘I don’t think you should go’. Whether he was saving me from the priesthood or the priesthood from me, I don’t know. But quite soon after, I started doing drama”… well this is the definition of providence and irony!
I turned the sound off. It was marginally better that way, which isn’t saying much. What a mess of an opening ceremony. Looked like a bad Broadway musical with no plot. Really bad.
Much better watching the athletes walk in.
Uglier than their teeth.
I watched Beck’s One Nation Indivisible multi-denominational speaking event. Powerful! Every one of those pastors/rabbis was excellent, esp. Rush’s friend, “The Hutch.”
I’d do Meridith Viera
Let the Hunger Games begin!
Saw most of the show and now the athletes are marching in.
A few observations:
That giant baby doll in the NHS propaganda piece was really creepy.
I wish Matt Lauer would just shut the f— up.
Great Britain has degenerated from being the fore runners in the industrial revolution into a bunch of welfare collecting, hard partying, setting slackers. At least that’s what the show seemed to be saying. I guess they had to put in that NHS piece because it’s the only thing they seem to be proud of in this century.
Were the clothes in the 70′s as bad as those costumes portrayed? I’m going to burn all my old photographs.
setting = sexting. Damn auto correct.
I watched the Red Sox get shellacked by the Yankees.
That’s enough amateur entertainment for one night.
I’ll be watching the Freestyle and Greco Roman. They are the only events that are not subjectively judged. And the USA’s gonna killem. Unfortunately they air wrestling at 0 dark 30.
The old commies (china) did a vastly superior job that the new commies (britain)……..it looked like something out of a 50s Soviet propaganda movie…..
The big baby was creepy and Mr. Bean was not funny one freaking bit. It was awful.
I have many fond memories of watching the Olympics, so I still watch. (Really fond of women’s gymnastics and beach volleyball for some reason!)Only saw one Obama commercial, so thankful for that. Costas did try and wedge in a moment of silence for the 72′ Israeli team. I think the IOC has no balls since they banned that Greek girl but the Iranians get a pass. Costas pretty much called the Iranians assholes.
Thanks Bitterclinger, I watched Beck as well. I would rather try to stay in touch with our country than watch these socialists from another country think they have any kind of talent. As for mets I just dont give a shit about nY these days. They can have shumer and his arrongant dictator ways. They get what they deserve.
Just turned it on and The Queen and James Bond…can’t stand the play by play of Lauer and Viera. They are touting their healthcare system?!? Good lord. Gosh I may throw up. Can I have an aspirin?
Not a fan of the summer Olympics. Women’s boxing? Really? That’s a sport? We’ve come a long way baby to beat the crap out of each other. I don’t get it. I like swimming and horse events and gymnastics…
Winter Olympics are the best…curling is awesome. Seriously!
My wife had it on for about ten minutes which was 15 minutes more than I could stand.
She’s in playing Monopoly on the computer now….
Clicked on and OFF. Argaaahhhhh
Such crapola was/is beyond pretentious, stupid, boring, diddly squat Ta-Ta sh!t I’ve ever seen.
Damn, Hollywood does good manure!/sarc
Too bad Cirque du Soliel isn’t originally from England…the dancing doctors and nurses are silly.
Nothing says Olympiad like a bunch of hospital beds! Geez.
Well I watched some of it live thanks to the Canadian channels I receive in the boonies of NYS.
NBC sucks ….
My thoughts on it ; Embarrassing. Kids running around in their pajamas, Mary Poppins falling from the sky. and Fags dancing to a druid fest drum beat.
Mr Bean who never was funny and Beckham looking like the douche that he is. A homage to socialism. It was pathetic.
Britain you’re one lost sad excuse for a once great nation and the even sadder thing is we are right behind you.
Was that the LIberty Bell?!?
It was like a bad Macy’s Thanksgiving parade. The two NBC nitwits read the talking points to explain the deep meaning of the bullshit, which included how much the Brits “love” their national health care. What a waste of everything including my time.
I’m going to go make dinner soon-plenty recorded on my DVD that I’d rather watch than this.
Forget Mr. Bean-where’s Benny Hill!?!
Where’s the Mooch, how much is this costing us?
I am so PISSED OFF by how they trashed the gorgeous “Chariots of Fire” music–Rowan Atkinson doing a snot routine in the middle of it???–and then photoshopping him into the famous footrace on the beach/opening credits???!!!!!
That’s it, I’ve had it.
More impressive and realistic than the Chinese display of slave labor that last time around.
Monty Python? Anything? This part is an 80′s flashback…?
July 28th, 2012
Okay. I can’t watch anymore.
@Melody, moochie got disqualified. She tested positive for testosterone.
I liked the Hitler Olympics best.
Watched “Mirror, Mirror” instead. The *itchy queen character was Obummer in drag.
Me to, specially when Jesse Owens destroyed the ultimate inbred race. Really, how far is are prezzy off the mark that Hitler set. I feel they are not all that dissimilar.
I turned it on for about 3 mins – turned the volume off and continued watching Glenn Beck’s inter-denominational pastors conference. What I saw of the Olympics opening show was beyond CREEPY. No wonder the UN sees a time when one world government will be feasible – like watching a mass of drones in the matrix.
P.S. Agree with your comment about Tolkien having a stroke. The moment those smoking chimneys started coming up, I thought “Isengard, under Saruman”, or what he later did to the Shire. Totally repellent. And that’s what we are to admire as progress?
I turned it off when they started doing the National Health Service propoganda. That gave Meredith and Matt the lead in they needed to imply how silly it is that we are still debating this in this country. I am furious. I always loved watching Olympic opening ceremonies. Why does the left have to spoil everything they touch? Will they not be happy until everyone is as miserable as they are. NHS in the Olympic opening ceremony? Ridiculous.
Sorry. Boycotting the 2012 Olympics until they bring Voula Papachristou back.
Awful Just awful. I hate the Summer Olympics anyway as they can’t compare to the beauty and majesty of the Winter Games. Remember four years ago in Canada the snow boarder going down the mountain and jumping thru the rings? Now THAT was a great opening.
I think I counted as many commercials as I did athletes during the parade of athletes. The single greatest honor for an athlete used to be carrying the flag for your nation… now it’s to have that act usurped with an ad for Mickey D’s
9:45 here in Cali. Wife’s got the Olies on and they just played a Barack Oasshole add. Maybe you all have seen this in early time zones. Blew my mind. “I believe in the power of the individual Yada Yada Yada, and growing the economy from the middle out> WTF!!!!!! By the end of the election he’s gonna sound just like Reagan. Key word sound. This guy will say anything or take any position to get his chameleon ass re elected. Dudes got no spine.
Hi MaryfromMarin–I was on the phone and turned the sound down but later read they included some sort of farting noise at the end of Rowan’s race. How vulgar and tasteless–just like the Queen “parachuting” in and the shot up her bloomers. What in the world has happened to the land of Alec Guinness and Cary Grant?!
Drudge is calling it the “Slumdog Olympics”…snort!
The clown that put it together was the director of “Slumdog Millionaire”.
What a load of socialist crap!
What a pile of abortion.It’s official.The chinese are going to skull fuck every last one of us.
Hey Lyle. One of the reasons the Chicom Olympics were so stunning was they held a design competition through Parametric Technologies (Pro E) for best conceptual design here in the good old U S of A. No shit, we designed most their shit. Google it, I know what I’m saying.
SO glad I walked out before that sound effect. Might have lost my slight remaining thread of self-control.
I am so sick of modern culture, and how everything has to be ridiculed, belittled, and perverted.
I didn’t hear anything like that. What did you ladies have for dinner tonight?
Best tweet re Olympic Opening Ceremony:
“Communist Manifesto meets Stomp”
Ha, ha, @Brad.
Are you going to the Islam presentation in Fairfield next Wednesday night, put on by Solano Tea Party Patriots? It’s so good, I’m going so I can hear it for the second time (and hopefully eat dinner at the Fairfield Chick-Fil-A).
Boobie the Rocket Dog
MSM says it was faggy. I didn’t see it. Tell me when the girls figure skating comes on.
Did they really have to include david bowie’s nekkid gay ass in the opening ceremony? Western culture is a sick sad joke.
Hey Mary, I would love to meet you and Stranded there but I have a couple AOG contracts with the military. I just found this out because it hasn’t happened before. AOG stands for Air Craft on The Ground. Not good. Next time, sounds awesome though. I have not attended yet, but Tom McLintock is here local a lot. My friends say he is awesome. I’ll let you and Stranded next time he’s here just in case.
@Boobie the Rocket Dog
So… call you in two years?
F.D.R. in Hell
It can’t hold a candle to 1936 and Jesse Owens.
* sigh *
I wish, now, I had sent J.C. a letter or a telegram of congratulations. That was wrong.
Reason #317 of why I’m down here.
The Olympics are on? I didn’t even know it. But NCAA football starts in a month. Wooo Hoo!@!@#@!
Yes, please keep me posted. Would love to hear McClintock in person.
Don’t know if Stranded in S. read about the Islam presentation, so no idea if he is coming. But you can go to islamthreat.com to look up the schedule for Peter F.’s upcoming lectures. He’s all over CA with them. What a speaker!
Mary, I voted for McClintock over Arnold, the RINO. McClintock is just a good common sense conservative. When he’s home, he meets with his constituents a lot. That in it’s self is impressive.
yes, tom mcclintock is a good guy, I’ve never understood why he isnt more well known……..but then in california is really difficult for conservative to be well known
NBC does not come on my TVs.
@Brad, AOG? That reminds me of an E-3 Viking maintenence engineer I knew briefly when I worked on a temporary job @ Edwards AFB. ” Aircraft don’t belong on the ground, they’re f**king AIR-CRAFT”
His business card read “Aircraft Gynecologist. Wars Waged / Battles Fought” at the top.
And yes, the E-3 is a Navy plane but he was at Edwards AFB because of a GE jet engine issue (among other things). Funny guy who proved that who you know is more important than what you know.
I couldn’t take more than 10 minutes of that propagandized crap at the opening ceremonies.
The NHS, R E A L L Y? Here’s to putting a happy face on euthanasia. Goodbye England
The Olympics are going on? Really?
Overall, that was like an acid trip without technicolor. Unfortunately, this broadcast happened on one of my booze-free nights. Gin would have helped a lot.
Absolutely the most horrible nonsensical bunch of twits moving around that I have ever seen. It sucked! I went to bed and had nightmares all night. Britain has no talent.
I will not be watching even one minute of the Olympics. I could care less.
I didn’t hear them say Serbia’s name during the parade of nations, nor any mention we bombed the shit outta them so the muslims could take over.
I turned it off when the “tribute to NHS” came on the air. I just knew that muslims producing green energy would be the next act.
2016 is going to be in Rio. That one ought to be worth getting up off the sofa to flip the channel for. It was a good choice, because by 2016 I’m sure that all of European and North America will have collapsed in on itself, and Catholic south america will be the last remnant of Western civilization.
99th Squad Leader
The French uniforms on the American team looked spiffy!(sarcasm). There is NOTHING American about those uniforms, especially the color order – blue, white and red.
Just wanna comment that you have a very decent web site , I enjoy the design and style it actually stands out.
I was led to believe a nuclear device was going to be detonated in the London subway system and did all that prepping. I was severly disappointed.
I just completed an 87 hour work week. When did the Olympics start?
