So, has anyone seen the Olympics opening ceremony? Apparently most of my friends have not, because they "don't care", which I find kinda sad, but it's not my problem that they missed Daniel Craig pushing the Queen out of a helicopter. :shrug:

No, seriously, it was great. I especially loved the part with Rowan Atkinson (aka Mr.Bean), his humour is just great and unique.
And, Daniel Craig of course, well, who didn't enjoy that? ;D Though it would have been great if he'd been there live, but well, he has to shoot Skyfall! :la:

But, who was missing? Right. And I don't understand why. Sherlock Holmes still has so many fans and is actually also up-to-date, isn't he? So, yeah, I found that a little strange. But did anyone notice they were playing Staying Alive for a moment? I know it's just a song after all...but it woke memories :dummy:

Now, back to topic. The ceremony was great. Great Britain has so much to be proud of and they showed that, and they really made me want to go to London. But I can't until next year, so I decided to give this epic city an epic feature! :squee:
It's my first feature ever, but I'll try my best to make it a nice one. Well, okay, it's not that difficult :XD:

Note: *cough* You may also want to have a look at my own London gallery lionpelt-66.deviantart.com/gal…

Omg. The Queen jumping out of that helicopter was epic. It's such a funny story to tell! "Oh, just that James Bond and Elizabeth jumped out of a helicopter." "Elizabeth? THE Elizabeth?!"

Did they play Staying Alive?! It must've been Moriarty! :D

I'm not usually into opening ceremonies, but thought this one was brilliant. Maybe because it was in my home country and I actually understood most of what was going on... Cheers for the feature :)

Wonderful, thank you for including me in these features, it's a real privilege :) I liked Mister Bean from the opening ceremony too, such an iconic British comic. For some reason, I was kind of hoping Lady Gaga would perform though. I know she's not British, but I think it would have been a great opportunity to have her wear something ridiculously outlandish as she always does, but with a UK twist =p

Haha, yeah, that would have been funny. But as you said, she's not British :D

I really like the Rowan Atkinson bit of the opening ceremony as well. The stage transforming into the industrial age was pretty excellent too.

Thanks for the feature :)
