Ye Shi Wen! xD

How can people think that of her? She probably plays around at the dinner table if you sit her next to someone her age… just like my cousins. LOL

Dudes, so they finally released a finished version of the music video [1] xD which has atrocious rainbow-colored English lyrics xD But you can check some funny remarks and a quickie English translations from Beijing Cream.

You can also check a slightly better quality version of the video on YinYueTai — but still not crisp enough to be able to read the tiny English caption xD

I’m rather surprised I only know a little over +30 names xD and a little more of the faces, including a brief apperance by Ajia [1] and Li Yu Gang (李玉刚) whom… you know, you can’t totally tell from just the audio. I’m also rather SHOCKED that I didn’t get Song Zuying from early on the song but her later bit xD

Judging from the song alone (okay, and a bit of the video), Sa Dingding did great. This was her Beijing Welcomes You   [MV] 5-sec Bibi moment for me. xD The song is no Beijing Welcomes You, though. And I love some of Chang Shilei’s stuff. His 2008 Niu China album was my favorite that year, and he does produce some great songs like I Would Say to Them (对他说我愿意) [1] or HIGH歌 — OMG, are you watching The Voice of China [clip] [1]? xD

Also, the video is pretty cheap. Walking down a shelves of book of… what I supposed is the Beijing library or something. xD And also the people that weren’t in Beijing and obviously couldn’t be flown to shoot for the video because of budget. I’m looking at you guys, Eason and Aaron~~~ and Kelly Chen xD

For the people saying it… it’s really NOT about the money spent, though that helps, of course. And since I haven’t re-watched the Sydney or Athens ceremonies, I’m not ranking them in this list (yet) — I’ll consider them ranking them if I find a download file. xD

In any case, I’m ranking the Olympics as I’ve enjoyed them and with some of the people’s commentaries trying to avoid all the political comments, so I’m really judging the Opening Ceremonies on broadcast artistic merits ONLY — these means how the show was seen on TV since I haven’t seen any ceremony live.

I’m also adding the information on each of their budgets to let you know that it’s not (always) about the money.

So here’s the on-going list. I hope it goes on and on for years to come!

Sochi, Russia!!! Where will you land in 2014!!?? *Updated*

Rio, Brasil!!! Where will you land in 2016??? *Updated*

Pyeongchang, South Korea! Where will you land in 2018???

Tokyo, Japan 2020~~~ Beijing, China 2022???

I have a weakness for the diving competition during the Olympics — alongside table tennis gymnastics, volleyball… and actually, I love to watch everything. xD

So since Guo Jingjing retired last year, I’m gonna be missing her this year at the Olympics. I was very curious to check out who will be in this year’s teams to make up for her absence. And CCTV showed Guo Jingjing’s amazingness today after the opening ceremony, so I began to miss her, coz she’s just so awesome T_T

So we’ve got a picspam xD

Dear, America Television — aka. Canal 4

Next time you plan to bid for the Olympics~ Please, don’t.

I know I had my issues with you and your coverage of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. But I thought you were just effing around with me because they were the Winter Olympics. Peruvians wouldn’t possibly CARE for WINTER WITH SNOW. Right? So I didn’t think you could do an even WORSE coverage of the London 2012 Summer Olympics.

I mean, I know I thought your promotion for the Olympics was more like some ass-kissing to your Canal 4, showcasing your so-called team (to call it a “so-called team” is even an insult to so-called teams) to cover the games, instead of focusing all your attention on the athletes and the sporting spirit.

You just basically denied the whole country of the Olympic broadcast because you didn’t let ATV do it for you like they did with Beijing [1] [2]. It’s not like I care about your sports commentators (who are idiots), but cutting the Opening Ceremony broadcast right before they were about to light the Olympic Cauldron — which is THE moment the Olympics are about. Canal 4 America Television just cut the broadcast to show your mind-melting trash television, Esto es Guerra.

SERIOUSLY.

America Television, you guys, should be ashamed of yourselves.

PS.: F*ck, Danny Boyle too. Your ceremony was atrocious (except when they lit the Olympic cauldron, which America Television didn’t show hahahaha).
