OMG, Are you watching? Countries are showing up at the moment. I woke up at 6.30am to watch at 7am. And did the Chinese disappoint? No, they didn’t~~ The Chinese did not disappoint with their first hour. All orchestrated by Zhang Yimou, it was the stuff (suck it up, Spielberg… suck it up.) – Yes, love Zhang Yimou’s visual style… flying performers, lights~~~ LOTS of lights, people with lights on their clothes, projections… human-Chinese-painting…. that was amazing!!! The loads of drummers, the dancers, the giant canvas… the representation of the Road of Silk, the calligraphy, the Taichi demonstration with the uber cool banners with digital displays in synched with the movements of the choreography. The human Bird’s Nest stadium surrounding Lang Lang… the stuff~~

If I find a digital file, will do captures~~~ *EDIT* (12.36pm) video should hit the net soon~~~

And the rumors of Jay Chou with Celine Dion? Dunno… I was super surprised to see Sarah Brightman and Chinese singer Liu Huan singing You and Me. Maybe Jay and Celine will sing later on. We will see~~

Could you have imagined a duet between Sarah Brightman and Faye Wong??? Orgasmic performance of eclectic energy that would’ve been, would’ve taken you to the Ether~~~ Sarah Brightman singing was the hotness, she looks so young, and her voice was so powerful. And was she singing in Chinese? *scribble: must find lyrics and song*.

Word has it that Brightman is the sole international star performing in the event, so that would mean Celine and Jay was just a rumor, or that Jay will be holding it on his own.

Stay tuned.

Holy crap! Did you see???? Did you see the final race for the Olympic flame????? DId you see the digital projection of the race above all?????? How awesome was the igniting of the flame? Like a super gigantic firework *WOOSH* and then all the fireworks.

China delivered, China was the shit to watch today. Craziest, fanciest, exhuberant Olympic Opening EVER. Art, art, art, art *SWOON* – Now… London’s got tough competition. LOL Beijing Olympics are just beginning, but will London deliver next????? Could they deliver more?

I found photos! Nifty photos than the ones being used by the press~ xD

TcCandler.com has released its list of the 100 most beautiful faces… female faces, just to make that clear. As past lists, the faces, the names, nationalities and everything is varied. And Natalie, my Natalie… she made it to Numero 1 this year, after being on the list for 11 years. So she’s actually been on the list since probably the release of Leon~~~ SNAP! These guys are good.

Rachel Weisz, who shares screen credit with Natalie on Wong Kar Wai’s My Blueberry Nights lands on #2 (after 13 years on the list), and Kate Beckinsale lands on numero 3 after 10 years on the list, and dropping from last year’s number 1 spot. My Marion (Cotillard, for those who don’t know) lands on Numero Quatre, after 7 years and dropping from #3 last year. And making it to the Top5 is Katharine McPhee who’s been on the list for 2 years.

Favorite names on the list?? Judy Greer, Rachel McAdams, Eva Green, Audrey Tautou, Ellen Page, Paz Vega, Krista Allen, Marley Shelton, Emilia Fox, Julianne Nicholson, Rachel Hurd Wood, Jennifer Connelly, Monica Bellucci, Kate Winslet, and Camilla Belle.

There is only one thing to say… THANK YOU SO MUCH, Julz!!!!! I just got it in the mail today, and the post office almost spoiled it, because they were about to rip the wrapping to find out what it was! And I was like NO! Can’t you just read the invoice to see what’s inside, plus it’s a gift, you damn fuckers! LOL’ – They looked at me funny because you won’t believe how EXCITED I got when I knew. You could see it in my eyes, Julz – this has been the most surprising, bestest present like EVER… FOREVER AND EVER and always~~~

Hardcover books rock, photography rocks, celebrity portraits rock… so this gift effing rocks!! It’s got sooooo many photographs, and they are all neatly printed on nice paper. My dad even thought they might be real pictures pasted on the paper, haha. Big font for the content, so no need for eye-squinting… and the first chapter, if I read correctly – it’s written by Garbo’s great-nephew. I thought it was such a great read! Here’s an excerpt:

There is a lot about Greta Garbo I did not learn until after she passed away. Her last film was released in 1941, seventeen years before I was born. Until I was a teenager, she was just “Kata.” This was the nickname she was given as a child – after Swedish suffragette Kata Dalstrom – presumably for her strong will.

Kata was my great aunt. Of all my relatives, she was one of my favorites, beloved by my brothers and sisters as well. I remember the times we spent together with a smile. I recall her sidelong glances and her raised eyebrows as her stories were spun to the next level of impossibility. Kata had a great sense of humor, and there were always jokes when she was around. In New Jersey, we accompanied her on long walks and once built a bonfire that could be seen for several blocks. Kata taught me and my siblings how to do cartwheels. She was distressed that we had not learned to do them properly, and we spent a memorable afternoon refining our technique under her critical eye. Kata was an intriguing combination of seriousness and fun.
