Anyone watching the Winter Olympics?
on: February 14, 2018, 04:13:44
Is anyone watching the Winter Olympics?

I don't know the first thing about any of the sports but I like watching the snowboarding.  :)

Once you start watching this television programming can really interfere with your songwriting.  ;)

  Bill you can justify it by telling yourself it's just research for your upcoming "extremely positive comp entry" about snowboarding ! :)
  something like "snowboard of life" or  "life is like a snowboard, you just have to hold on tight"  haha!  ;)

All I know is that over the weekend I saw a front side Miller 540 followed by a front double 10 out of a side hit into a backside triple cork.....and it was good for the GOLD.

Our Brit speed skater girl keeps falling over and then crying. She crashed into a whole load of people last Olympics and wiped them out. She cried then too. But Brits love a tale of overcoming adversity - so she is racing again on Saturday and if she wins she will become a National Treasure. Then Hollywood will make a film about her and make all the money. Just hope the film is as good as 'Cool Runnings' though, the Jamaican Bobsled Team movie, always guaranteed to inspire, great feel-good movie. But Hollywood prob kept all the money for that too!  ;D
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

I've been watching - except yesterday (Tuesday) my I dropped my wife off at the airport (she's going to Boston on Biz) so I recorded while I could.

Sometimes I'll go with her, but not to Florida in the winter.

@Bill from November Sound  - have been keeping an eye on the TV and the Olympics. It looks to me like the Dutch public broadcasters are only putting out the speed skating, and the tone is quite naionalistic. I tuned into a programme that was even bragging about the cameramen being Dutch. For me that is totally silly. I wish there was a way to watch this without the national connotation: no flags, no anthems, just the people doing sports.
But apart from that - it is wonderful to see footage in slow motion with high grade cameras of people doing magical movements. Sure is inspiring for songwriting.

Hey that's a good point @oorlab . I guess every country kind of shows the sports that they want their audience to see. We rarely ever get to see biathlon or curling around here.
But, I suppose so much is happening that they couldn't show it all.
