I didn't get a chance to seen none of this on live tv since I'm at work but, I'm interested watching some crazy youtube videos later on to see what crazy excuse they have to say.

People, really? This opening ceremony is a whole lot of....nothing.

If there's a logical reason for a "conspiracy" then go for it, but way too many people try to just make something out of nothing.

I would bet my life savings that absolutely nothing will happen at the olympics.





I don't think this thread is here for any other reason other than provide feedback on the coverage....Well at least thats what I'm using it for.

No conspiracy here....unless you count its questionable entertainment value !

watching it now on NBC. must say, this is the worst opening ceremony, thus far, that i have seen since i started watching them in 1984. it is like watching a 6th grade rendition of Lord of the Rings.

I thought it was quite decent, Danny Boyle did a good job.

ok, so right now they are showing some of the representation of the industrial revolution. the music and ancillary stuff seems to pay homage to the pagan roots, and the music has really improved.

final judgement not yet ready. It is looking a lot better.

Ok....wow. awesome. i love the molten iron moving through the channel. really, really cool.

I take it back. The Chinese had a billion people, and still England blew them away. That was really, really good.

I'm sure i just saw James Bond escorting the queen onto a helicopter... Shortly before "parachuting" into the stadium...

Is this what Britain is meant to be? is that our culture?? That cost 27 Million pounds! madness!




It's the NHS lit up for all to see that finished me off, its not that I don't support our health service, just that I don't understand why they thought people around the world would want to see it.

It almost feels like propagander......but for who ?


LOL, trust me it sent a message. A couple of my friends on facebook used that as an opportunity to criticize the American healthcare system, compared to what we have here, its definitely something to be proud of and is defintetly something to brag about.

OK, first time poster here at ATS. I've just been a daily post reader until now. I'm in the states and watched the NBC showing that started at 6:30PM.

There are two things that really struck me about this ceremony:

1. The Industrial Revolution scene... since almost the very start of the historic play/ceremony, there were the top hatted men who seemed to play an integral part of the performance. They were constantly being fixated on by the camera, and were dancing strangely throughout. At the end, when the labor forged "ring" was created, and the other four rings floated in through mid-air to create the olympic logo. There was one top-hatted man who had this look that I could only describe as... "look at my creation" kind of expression. Every other one was in stoic reverie. This one man was fixated on by the camera throughout the entire ceremony. He was gazing up at the scene in awe and.. pride? At the scene, while every other top-hatted man was in a bearing of emotionlessness.

2. The torch lighting. Does it not seem weird that the final torch bearers were youth aged 16 - 19, 7 individuals, who lighted something I can only describe as what looked like the eye of Sauron? They lit center torches, which lit torches around the center of the stadium, in an eye-like image, with the very center of the stage being a black pupil. Then the torches arose in a hemisphere, like an eye. NBC then panned the camera out above the stadium, and the whole scene looked like a giant flaming EYE. It was just too creepy for comfort.

I'm not one for conspiracy theories, but this ceremony to me was just too hard to NOT look into; hence the reason I finally enrolled in the ATS forums. I couldn't find answers, so I am just trying to share my own insight. Most people on this thread push the ceremony as "eh, the crappiest opening Olympics ceremony I've seen," but I am under conviction that this is symbolically way more than the typical flashy and gaudy ceremonies I've seen in the past years.

Just my 2 cents.

Interesting, I would like to watch the opening ceremony but I'll be damned if I can't find a live-stream anywhere on the web...odd this day in age that there is no live-stream of the Olympics on the net...

If anyone has one I would love to watch if you could link....otherwise I guess I have to watch prime-time TV and promote a station I don't really care for...

On Topic: I wouldn't be surprised with the info you linked as most all ceremonie, anniversaries and celebrations seem to be an inside joke that the elite understand and we THINK we understand but really don't and participate in out of complete ignorance...

Well, you should have searched harder...because i had a PERFECTLY working stream. Unfortunately, my 1st thread on ATS was bumped by someone else, who started a similar thread, hours later. You can still chime in. My intentions were to have this thread available, for the entire 2 weeks of the Olympics. Hope to see you there. Here's the threadwww.abovetopsecret.com...

1. That "Top-hatted man" was Kenneth Branagh A very famous actor so naturally the camera was on him.

He was portraying Isambard Kingdom Brunel

No conspiracy



2. The passing of the torch was a literal representation of Athletes of old (all of those who passed their torches were famous British Olympians and sports stars) passing the torch to the next generation.

Each nation brought in a piece of that flame sculpture.... each piece was a petal.
When all the stems rose together, it signified unity.



Really.

People just need to understand what they were watching.

It's not difficult.
