OLYMPIC GAMES 2012


The lighting ceremony in Olympia

Ritual se je odvijal 10. maja v 2.600 let starem templju Here, kjer je visoko svečenico odigrala igralka Ino Menegaki, ki je dala invokacijo Apolonu, grškemu bogu sonca, pri čemer je uporabila ogledalo z katerim je ulovila sončne žarke in ustvarila plamen. Deček z olivno vejico vodi svečenice na antičen olimpijski stadion, kjer so te zaplesale ples v duhu antične Grčije, čemur sledi ples bojevnikov. Visoka svečenica dobi od dečka olivno vejico, ki jo skupaj z ognjem preda prvemu nosilcu plamena, grškemu plavalcu in nosilcu srebrne olimpijske medalje Spyros Gianniotisu. Olimpijski ogenj je iz Grčije do Britanije potoval 70 dni in prepotoval 12.875 km. Če si želiš ritual ogledati začni gledati pri 1:33:00, ker na začetku eno uro in pol govorijo in govorijo in govorijo.

The ritual held on 10th of May was in the 2.600 year old Temple of Hera, where high Priestess, played by actress Ino Menegaki, did an invocation to Apollo, the ancient Greeks’ Sun God, used a mirror to focus the sun’s rays and light a torch. The priestesses, led by a small boy with an olive branch, went into the ancient Olympia stadium and performed dances in ancient Greek style, that was continued by warrior dance. The Highest Priestess then received the olive branch from the boy and passed the flame and branch to the first torchbearer, Greek swimmer and Olympic silver medalist Spyros Gianniotis. From Greece the flame traveeld to Britain for a 70 days and acrossing 8.000 miles. The ritual  begins at 1:33:00 before that is just one and a half hour of talk talk talk…

Olympic torch flame goes out

Eden od najbolj neprijetnih dogodkov na otvoritveni svečanosti, je definitivno ugasnitev olimpijskega ognja. Kljub predvideni paniki, je zadevo lepo in če ne bi bilo kamer, skoraj da neopazno izpeljala do konca.

One of the most unpleasant incident at the opening ceremony is definitely when olympic torch flame goes out. I imagine she had little panic attack but she caried throu nice and calm and if the were no cameras, almost unnoticed.

Lightning in London

Vedno je v misterijo ovita skrivnost, kdo bo tisti izbranec, ki bo tokrat prižgal olimpijski ogenj; zato mi je posebej všeč ideja, da si je to čast tokrat delilo sedem mladih športnikov.

It’s always a big mistery and secret that is captured until the end, who will lighten the olympic light, and I liked the idea, that this time they put incharge seved jung athlets to light together .

Mr Bean

http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/82693026/?

Del predstave, ki me je konkretno nasmejal pripada enemu boljših igralcev in komikov, Rowan Atkisonu, ki je med drugim oživel lik, vsem znanega  Mr. Beana. Škoda, da ni namesto Samsungovega telefona, potegnil iz žepa staro Nokio ali novega iPhona, to bi sigurno še koga dodatno nasmejalo, glede nato, da je samsung eden izmed spoznorjev olimpijskih iger.

Part, that made me laugh belongs to one of the best actors and comedians, Rowan Atkinson, and his world wide known character of Mr.Bean.  Too bad, he didn’t pulled from his pocket instead of Samsung, some old Nokia phone or new iPhone, that would certainly make situation funnier, given that the Samsung is one of sponsors of olympic games.

Evelyn Glennie 

Zelo zanimiva oseba, Evelyn Glennie, škotska tolkalistka, vrhunska umetnica, ki uči čutenje zvoka in je nastopala v živo na otvoritveni slovestnosti. Od enajstega leta je gluha in pravi, da sliši zvoke z deli telesa. Njen svet in njeno doživljanje zvoka, nam prikaže dokumentaren film Touch the sound, ki je razdeljen na 12 delov. Za svoje glasbene dosežke je prejela številne nagrade. Tole je njena spletna stran, kjer lahko slišiš njeno melodijo: Evelyn Glennie.

Very interesting person, Evelyn Glennie, is a Scottish virtuoso percussionist, who performed live in the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. She has been deaf since age 11 and she explain in the documentary film Touch the sound, how she feels sound with different body parts. For her work she received many awards, and she is the first full-time solo percussionist in the 20th century western society. Here is her web page, where you can hear her music: Evelyn Glennie.

The queen

Del otvoritvene svečanosti, kjer se predstavijo vse države in atleti pridejo na stadion in kamera pokaže ponosne predsednike, sultane in ostale voditelje, kako ponosno mahajo svojim športnim predstavnikom, je definitivno moment, ki se najbolj dotakne mojega srca. In medtem, ko so ostali predsedniki, predstavniki, voditelji pokazali podporo svojim atletom z mahanjem, navijanjem, plesom in vidno navdušenostjo, je britanska kraljica ob prihodu britanskih športnikov, te pozdravila tako, da si je čistila nohte in se trudila zgledati zdolgočaseno. Deluje kakor, da bi bila jezna, ker je toliko srečnih ljudi na stadionu. Zanimivo mi je videti britansko nacijo tako ponosno na svojo kraljico, da še vedno imajo himno, ki se začne z besedami ”Bog varuj kraljico”.  Moje edino vprašanje na tako besedilo je, čemu? p.s. bbc redno odstranjuje posnetke omenjenega dogodka z youtuba

Part on opening ceremony, where all countries are introducing and athlets come on stadion where camera shows proud presedents, sultans, or other leaders of the country that are waving to their sport representatives, is the moment I like the most.  And while other leaders of countries showed support to their athlets, british queen was cleaning her nails and trying to look bored. As almost she is angry because there are so many happy peope on stadium. It’s  interesting so see  english nation so proud of their queen, that their even/still have national song that begins with words  ”God save the queen”. My only question at that lyric is Really? Why? p.s. bbc is regularly removing mentioned incident from youtube

Leni Riefenstahl – Olympia (1938)

Prvi dokumentarni celovečerni film olimpijskih iger je iz leta 1938 z naslovom Olympia. Leni Riefenstahl je leta 1936 dokumentirala poletne olimpijske igre, ki so se odvijale v Berlinu. Uvedla je mnoge napredne filmske tehnike, ki so pozneje postale industrijski standard in so za tisti čas bile prelomna novost. Uvedene  tehnične novosti so povsod občudovali, vendar je bil film sporen zaradi političnega konteksta. Kljub temu, se film pojava na različnih seznamih, kot eden največjih filmov vseh časov.

The first documentary feature film of the Olympic Games ever made, was Olympia in a 1938. Film by Leni Riefenstahl was documenting the 1936 Summer Olympics held in Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Germany. Many advanced motion picture techniques, which later became industry standards but which were groundbreaking at the time, were employed. The techniques employed are almost universally admired, but the film is controversial due to its political context. Nevertheless, the film appears on many lists of the greatest films of all-time.

Sport Billy 

Ko pomislim na olimpijske igre, se moram zaustaviti pri liku, ki me spominja na otroštvo. Oseba, ki varuje šport in zdrav športni duh v celotni galaksij in s seboj nosi malo torbico, iz katere izvleče ogromne stvari, ki so ravno prav tiste, ki jih v danem momentu potrebuje in ima plovilo, z katerim potuje skozi čas. Eden in edin Sport Billy, ki prihaja iz planeta Olimp, dvojčka Zemlje na nasprotni strani sonca.

When I think about olympic games, my memorie goes to my childhood, and to the cartoon, were main caracter protects sport and healthy sport spirit in the whole galaxy. The story revolves around a young boy named Sport Billy who is from the planet Olympus (a twin of Earth on the opposite side of the Sun) which is populated by athletic god-like beings. Billy himself has a magic size-changing gym bag – the Omni-Sack – which produces various tools as he needs them. He travels to Earth on a mission to promote teamwork and sportsmanship. Described by the show’s theme song as a “hero from another planet”, Billy battles the evil Queen Vanda and her gnome-like henchman, Snipe. Vanda’s mission is to destroy all sports in the galaxy since fairness disgusts her.Billy is assisted by two faithful companions, a girl named Lilly and a talking dog named Willy. The trio travel around in a time traveling spaceship, which resembles a giant wind-up clock, complete with a ringing bell, and mounted on two rocket engines. Each episode the trio travel through time to save a different Earth sport from Queen Vanda’s grasp. Sport Billy is a 1979 animated television cartoon made by Filmation Associates, initially for broadcast in Germany.
