First Obligatory Olympics Post

August 12, 2008

Weird Asian News is reporting on an awesome hand-made bamboo replica of the Beijing Olympic Stadium. Geez, even this is cooler than anything that had anything to do with the Atlanta games. Remember Izzy?! Sheesh…

One's very own Bird's Nest

Please dont remind me that I live in Atlanta

Please don't remind me that I live in Atlanta

The Atlanta design firm Clunky Robot says:
Izzy. There are so many things wrong with this mascot, it’s hard to know where to begin. So we’ll start with the most obvious: His total lack of quality on any level, including but not limited to: Design, Intent, or Philosophy. It also looks like he was the very first idea the design committee had. Although, you can be sure this is not true. Originally named Whatizit, Izzy went through many changes after he was announced and before the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics. They took a marginal design and watered it down even more. The result was spectacularly unpopular.

By the way, if you missed the Opening Ceremony I urge you to watch it in as high resolution as you can. It’s by far the best thing Zhang Yimou has done in years (ever?). It’s available on Bit Torrent sites in anywhere from 533 MB to over 40 GB in HD! If you need any more urging, check out these hi-res photos.

….and laugh at this Microsoft FAIL (Bill Gates was in attendance). Giggle…
