I thought the closing ceremonies were great. Let the critics attack. It was just as was promised a big party with a nod to British modern music and a little pop culture. And frankly I get so tired of reading online the comparisons to Beijing. The athletes and audience looked like they were having a blast. Not everything or everyone was perfect so what.

Loved the Spice Girls, the Imagine performance by the choir, Queen and Freddie Mercury even if Jessie J was off, Eric Idle was terrific, and The Who phenomenal. The only bad was how NBC butchered it. So glad I watched the live stream of it hours before.

    • This whole Sonny and Leo story is an example of something where I think the idea was great, but the execution of it poor.  I could totally get into Sonny coming back to town and seeking revenge on Leo for what he did years ago. I was fine with the idea of Sonny being obsessed about it to the point it might start harming his marriage, but one the first major mistakes was when it came down to blowing apart Leo and Craig, they had Sonny go MIA and it was Chad that showed up at the wedding. Should have been Sonny.  Then the current phase, Leo making an enemies list and seeing counter revenge, once again, sounds like a good idea that I'd be interested in seeing, but his revenge against Sonny was both problematic and stupid.  First, while I'm fairly certain no sex actually took place, drugging someone, stripping them naked, then sending pictures to a gossip site, is both assault and revenge porn. Unless you are going to treat it as such and write it in a serious way, those kinds of plots need to be left in the past. They aren't acceptable in 2022.  It's also dumb. What's Leo's aim? Sonny already figured out he was drugged, which I'm sure he'll tell Will, so Will is likely to only believe Leo's story in the Intruder for maybe all of 5 minutes. There's a million other better or interesting things they could have had Leo to do Sonny.   
    • Ray Liotta, RIP, They Started on Soaps                 @RealKevinConroy   Starting out in NY in 1981 I was on Another World with Ray for a year. I was 25 playing a 25 yr old detective. He was 26 playing a teenager! He was totally believable. Gone too soon RIP Ray Liotta.
    • I still have that  entire week on useless videotape, starring: Anna Stuart finally back from Hollywood! Derek Dane as the strong man! The House Of Mirrors! And Felicia, sporting the world's  worst hair extensions!
    • Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand, interviewed on Steven Colbert's show.   Interview in three parts. Watch all three parts all the way through.  It is so refreshing to see a sane government.  She talks about gun control, Covid, Ukraine, sustainability, etc.    
    • Gosh, that sweet baby boy...all of the episodes surrounding the shooting have been heavy on my mind this week for obvious reasons. Shortly after Parkland, we were given some bullsh!t reactionary directives to "incorporate active shooter safety into lessons," and I just so happened to be teaching a mini-unit on Canadian history so...we might have watched both parts of "Time Stands Still" in my classes that week, complete with us breaking apart all that was wrong with Degrassi's "lockdown," including kids being locked in classrooms while other people just went in and out of the building. Sean and Ellie really were my preferred coupling. Separately, their stories were a bit more mature, then they ended up sharing an apartment as that *whispers* high school couple that lives together. Emma kinda went off the rails for a while, and I always thought she'd be better served ending up with someone who didn't go to Degrassi so that she didn't have to live up to the high standards of the righteous "cause girl" she'd been. I'm ready to start skimming through some episodes to pick up on other regular background music lol There's one little piano piece that would always play at the end of emotionally-charged scenes right before a commercial or freeze frame. It low-key sounds like the hook from Summer Breeze. It looks like they've removed most episodes from YouTube, so I can't find it.
