I've been watching some Olympics on the streaming web site from NBC. It's really good because I like to watch the sports that don't get as much airplay and also to see full games -- especially live -- not just clips and highlights.

The other side of this is you get to see the warmups and empty stadia and also just the bits of intro time before the games begin. One thing that stands out is that each and every sport seems to be presaged by really bad sinopop.

Tacky ballads and bad disco sung in Chinese must be a requirement of the Beijing Olympic Committee. I am numbed by the sheer volume of songs that pour out of Asia which no person in the West will every the same way none of Bollywood's 600 per annum films will ever make it to an AMC Cineplex at a US mall.
