Come Monday...A Jolly Good Show

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

After not liking the opening ceremony to the 2012 London Olympics, I felt like it would only be fair to publish this account.  Simply put, my wife and I enjoyed the closing ceremony as much as we disliked the opening.  That is, except for when Rio’s turn came, but everything beforehand more than made up for it.

Granted, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is some outrage (maybe quite a lot) from the more devoutly religious types over the [outfits] that Jessie J wore—especially the one she had on while singing Queen’s We Will Rock You.  For it was meant to make you think that she was fully nude, and even my wife noticed that it sure looked like the carpet matched the drapes (if you know what I mean).

Getting back to the rest of the show, it was every bit as impressive as The Who’s Super Bowl XLIV Halftime Show.  I wish I could have found an embeddable video of the closing ceremony, but I suppose not enough time has passed yet.  The following video of The Who’s Super Bowl show should give you an idea of what the Olympic closing ceremony was like, if you haven’t seen it yet.  By the way, the [Kaiser Chiefs] performed a wonderful rendition of [Pinball Wizard] during the ceremony.

  1. I didn't watch any of the Olympics at all.

  2. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! We didn't watch all that much of it, and we would have missed the closing ceremony altogether if the television hadn't been on our local NBC station while we were watching something we had on the DVR.
