    It's fucking brilliant.

    Dynamite with a laserbeam
    Guaranteed to blow your mind'

    In a world racked with wars, hunger, inequality and pain, to be reminded that humans can create such incredible spectacle in the name of our commonality is very special indeed.:cool:

    I suspect the show is more in the name of the Central Committee, and the performers are there becasue of various 'incentives', but go with it if you want.

    I just hope to God Lodoners have more interesting things to do with one, or even two, year/s of their lives than to 'dedicate' themselves to making politicians look good.

    I don't believe those kids are really playing the drums, there's some less pretty child doing it behind the scenes :mad:

    I guess the BBC don't tell you when the London segment is due to appear in case you don't want to watch 3 entire hours of this guff, with some cliche driven, bland-me-to-death, Welsh newsdesk bore trying to blag his way through a voice over.

    Dammit. When they started singing the second verse of the National Anthem, I thought they might sing the entire thing, and get to the 'crush the rebellious Scots' bit. :)
