did anyone else get a Tolkein feel to the "forging" of the Olympic Rings? ???
Sure did, they also played a small blipet of the song "concerning hobbits" at some point, but I don't remember when. I totally missed the Tardis. Lord Voldemort was awesome and scary. The one thing I hoped to see was a reference to Radiohead but I figured Thom York has some ideological problem with the games and chose not to represent, but then again, maybe I just missed it. All in all, it was fun to watch. Way to go London!
