Incidentally, the first time I went scrolling through the TV listings and saw "XXX Olympics," I thought it was for a porn parody. Which kind of makes sense, given that the Olympics logo this time around looks like Lisa Simpson giving a blowjob.

Speaking of porn, they just had a nice tribute to John Lennon. followed by a live performance of George Michael.

Now, is it just me or does EVERYBODY laugh out loud when they hear the words "George Michael"? And then think of sexual predation and drugs?

Where are the British artists? Eric Clapton? Or even Rod Stewart? Seriously. George Michael?

Uh, George Michael is British. Pretty sure every band that's been involved tonight is Brit.

I was *very* disappointed they didn't make John Lennon and Freddie Mercury into holograms. Seriously - they can make a Tupak hologram and sell tickets to his "concert", but they can't make Lennon and Mercury sing a duet for the Olympics? C'MON, MAN!

His british nationality is not in question, his status as an artist is.

If the Kaiser Chiefs REALLY wanted to invoke the spirit of The Who with their "Pinball Wizard" rendition, they should have driven one of those fool motorcycles into the Olympic pool.

Ok I gotta admit riding around a stadium on the roof of a mini looks like fun. Certainly more fun than riding around inside said mini.
