Enough, I’m tired of the western media nitpicking.
Americans (I’ve yet to read a non-American article of how awful China is) and westerns in general are using double standards. I hate double standards~~
Lip-sync cases are everywhere, and is a fact that pretty people have more chances than less pretty people. If not, just check “Sexiness a Must for Today’s Lady Singers” which I translated into Spanish (in my site).
Photoshop and other image enhancing software and procedures (including cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery, and botox) are all very much part of western culture… especially American. So stop your whining about it~
The news about the lip-sync issue is the only thing that I could probably accept people ranting about. However, the other things they rant, are just LA Times (the article I read) nitpicking.
Who cares if the bird-view of the fireworks was digital… I mean, anyone with half-a-brain could know. Who in their right mind would fly their helicopter through the fireworks?? That’d be suicidal! It still looked good…. Plus, is it forbidden to use GCI?? Have Americans patented CGI for their use and purpose ONLY????
Who cares if the drummers and performers where part of the military, they still did a pretty awesome job. Is your army this artistic?? Do they dance, and recite Confucius??? No! These guys still had to train and learn routines, jsut like any performers…
As of the complaints that the ceremony only highlighted the parts of the history that were convenient?? and that they didn’t mention the earthquake???
Well, aren’t the Americans the first ones to ban films because they show black slavery? Isn’t that one of the reasons why “Song of the South” hasn’t gotten a DVD release??Because it shows part of what is American History…. aren’t The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and the Huckleberry Finn books banned for the same reason??
Does America mention anything about the international crimes they commit (but everyone keeps quiet) during their Oscar, or Grammy awards??? Didn’t they celebrated the Oscar just months after Sept. 11, and just a short time after American soldiers invaded?
I’m not trying to be the knight in my shiny armor pointing morals, but let’s just say things as they are. The Opening Ceremony was mind-blowing… be it with soldiers or CG…. if we look back at how China was 20 years ago, isn’t it just amazing they way it has risen? Can’t the western give credit were credit is due?
Well, that was my rant. LOL’ So don’t feel bad the way the media paints China, just feel proud of what China has gone through all those years, and how it is today. Could another country rise from its ashes like China has?
I know I sound more angry than proud, but I did say it was a rant. LOL
