Olympic... um... Games
Of all of the Olympic Mascot flashgames,
recycling bin curling is the best.
(Although I like the music for Soaring Sumi).

Sumi for copyright infringement
Sumi, the flying Vancouver Olympics mascot and Nini the Beijing Olympics bird mascot:

Uh, what gives?

We are ready
It is one year until the Vancouver Olympics. To promote Radio Free Québec's coverage of the Games, we have prepared this promotional video.

On a personal note, I am somewhat disappointed that Vancouver has not produced a cheesy song to celebrate the 1-year-to-go mark, as Beijing did:

The Olympics without a cheesy song celebrating every milestone of preparation is not really the Olympics, if you ask me.

More vacation movies
Hopefully, this highlights video captures the frenetic pace of our trip to the Olympics this summer. At least I'm not inviting you over to watch slides...

Overheard in Beijing
(Korean baseball fans, impromptu, to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb):
"Dongjoo, Dongjoo, Kim Dongjoo
Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah!
Dongjoo, Dongjoo Kim Dongjoo!
[Something in Korean] Kim Dongjoo!"
(upon which Kim Dongjoo knocks in the winning RBI to beat Japan in the semi-finals).

American twentysomethings, on trying to understand the nature of the Ippon in Judo:
"Oh, faceslam!... Faceslam is a thousand points!!!"

New Zealand field hockey fan, during a 5-minute video review:
"The Chinese built the Great Wall faster than this!"

New Zealand field hockey fan, on seeing an injured Spaniard on the field:
"Get up, this isn't soccer!"

Baseball announcer, having to introduce the Olympic mascots, which have no traits describable in the English language:
"It's Fuwa time!...Fuwa for you!"

P.S. We saw Jackie Chan! 20 feet away! Beat that for Chineseness, Chronomorph!

Alexandre Despatie dives better than Jaromir Jagr
Did anyone see us on TV during the Olympic 3m mens diving? We saw ourselves on CCTV, trying to keep a stony silence while a bunch of Russians cheered their diver as loudly as they could.

Some other highlights of our recent travels:
- a guy chucking his bronze medal onto the floor and storm off the podium in disgust (that's right, 3rd place is 2nd loser!)
- seeing the Lakeside Pavillion of Washing the Tassle of My Official Hat in the Master of the Nets Garden!
- seeing 24 pandas: 2% of the world's population!
- 100 dumplings in 48 hours!!!
- this awesome song!

(P.S. If you don't think it's awesome, play it 49 more times in the next 8 hours.)
