The proportions of the figure above seem wrong somehow…

Think it’s the arms…

Go Aussies! Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oye! Oye! Oye!

Also looking forward to the opening ceremony, but 5am start, oh man, a lot of coffee needed. Great image Stezza BTW.

I love all this enthusiasm. Looking good render wise. I will have to root for a different team but I’m all happy for the games to start. I love seeing the things us humans can do when we push to the total limits of what can be done. It’s all just so amazing.

You can look forward to it, but still see the problems beneath the surface (in this case literally).

This is still a WIP as the ‘final’ render with IBL came out far too bright (the redo is at 51% and 4 hrs 30mins in….), but there have been far too many Olympic spokesthings claiming that this will be “the most accessible Olympics ever,” at the same time that long term access improvement programmes for the Tube have been cancelled (only 66 stations out of 270 are accessible, almost all of them in the outskirts, and almost 50 of those still have a step up to the train).

“The Most Accessible Olympics Ever” (bunny-quotes intended!)

If this ‘scientific training’ is going to make you end up looking like the Frankenstein monster, I wouldn’t even want to think of participating in any Olympic event. smile

Think someone should have told them it was’nt eurovision it is the olympics. I think the best part was James Bond and the Queen. the begining was more ripping apart the country to make way for industry… Give me the countryside over industry any day.

The opening ceremony was all kinds of awesome, though a lot of the rest of the world is going to miss the political subtext. I was bouncing up and down in sheer delight at the stuff Boyle was getting away with, Bond, Bean, the NHS under threat from monsters, Tim Berners-Lee, Shami Chakrabarti as a flag bearer, and a soundtrack I’d buy the album for in an instant. Only disappointment for me was the overall lack of disability participation, surely they could have found a role for Tanni G-T at least!

People were tweeting #knighthoodforDannyBoyle well before the end.

I thought it was very British, not sure if anyone non-british would have got all the reference but then again, we paid a small fortune for the wretched thing. So who cares what they think!

I have to admit I thought the opening ceremony was very impressive, very professional and yes, it was very British, but why not, the Olympics are being held in Britain this year after all.

I was moved at time with the ceremony, very well thought through and well executed IMHO. I don’t go for these type of fan fare but I have to admit they out did themselves.

I missed the ceremony as well. I also missed the first round of the archery event. I’ll have to try and catch it today if it’s on TV

I did rather like the idea of James Bond going to fetch the Queen in a helicopter, and then her parachuting down into the arena. The Corgis wathching her fly off from the steps of Buck House was a great shot.

There were a few quirky little british jokes that might be missed by non Brits.
