Disscussion of the Brijing olympics in here!!!
Posted 8/31/08
Please tell me what you thought of the olympics in Bejing, China Held in 2008
Say whatever you want, but please write after considerating that you didn't get brainwashd by the media!Make it as long as you want, I'll read ALL of it.
*Before wards, I'd like to say that I'm mixed and I've livd in lots of countries, so I haven't been totally brainwashed by the same media*

Ok, first, I'd like to say that for those who thinks North Koreans are sh!t, you're wrong! I saw how happy and friendly (Even with foreigners) the Gymnast girl was when she was taking part. Sure, she killed off Cheng Fei but when the NK girl smiled I saw just how normal she was, not some brainwashed democratic robot. So it would be kinda unfair to say that all north koreans are scary people ( Mind you, Just Kim Ill Jeong )

Also, about the scandals regarding the lip synching girl and the gymnasts I am totally for it.
You have to admit that Lin Maoke was prettier than Yang Peiyi (She was quite cute too though), also, lip synching happens all the time so if it were other in situations I guess this would've not been a matter. Yang Peiyi got the credit she deserved, she wasn't a ghost singer or anything like that. The CHN goverment aren't idiots (They're probably cleverer than twice of your IQ put together no offence) , they knew they would be critisized for this but they told anyways, just so the girl gets her credits. Lin Maoke was pretty and photogenic so she could've became a model for this, Yang Peiyi was cute looking too and had a good voice so she could've became a singr after this. *Sarcastic*I think what the goverment did was not good, they've made it seem like they're bad people because some people are too STUPID to figure out they were giving YPY some credit.
The Gymnasts were brilliant, I think it was wrong to put uderage girls there as they may not grow. But that weren't even confirmed. I think the girls wanted to perform, they were happy to perform so they may've already chosen performing over height. On a lighter note, chinese people especially really don't grow that tall, I'm sure the girls takes care of themselves off stage.

The opening ceremony and the closing ceremony is incredible. I really didn't like it when people critisized on really pointless things, like how they were too "organised", obviously they has to be organized, what were they to do? Be so friken messy and get in a huddle like the 8 minuets of the "spectacular" London dancers? It was indescribable in words, every single part of it. I loved every second, I'm not sure I even blinked for about 4 hours during the ceremony.

The london 8 minuets were however...bad. First, the dancers were bad, I was sure I saw a chav there somewhere, when the bus arrived, they were all running to the bus at the same time, what were they gonna do? Create a bloodbath like how school girls from my school screaming onto the 440? I couldn't even hear the guitar or Leona Lewis. They really should've gotten someone more famous, I'm pretty sure the audience from all over th world were like: "Who the F are they?". It was, just...

I LOVED it Can't see how London's going to match it. I mean, China has so much culture and stuff so they could make it really interesting. Plus London is going with 1/3 of their budget loL!.

By the way, I LOVED the "welcome to beijing" song. You can find it on youtube.
