Is it even worth starting a Winter Olympics thread? My daughter likes the figure stating so I suspect I will be watching more of it than I had planned. 

Is anyone here gonna watch?

Not a chance in the world, cob. What was the last event we discussed... I guess the Tokyo Games? If possible, I have even less interest in the winter ones. Out of curiosity, where are they being held and is it a giant mask and covid show? Any crowds?

I loved "Winter Games" on the "Commodore 64" and "Steven Bradbury" is a legend.

That's about it.

If an Aussie is competing, I have a slight interest.

Having said that, I found myself watching Australia vs China in "Curling" this afternoon.

Interest subsiding.

Which is...apart from the fact that it is a bit crap(seen GBR v Sweden was on last night)...the reason I could never do it  :)

tricky for me to watch live as it's Beijing but I do enjoy the downhill. half-pipe, and icehockey so I'll catch some of it.

Why is Curling in quotations? Is it not actually Curling? Am I missing something?

Perhaps it is casting doubt on Curling being a legitimate sport. Perhaps it should be reclassified as housework on ice.

Just a comment on how ridiculous of a "sport" it is...

and also, as you may have noticed, I like using the old "quotation marks".

Putting the term quotation marks in quotation marks is pretty Meta BTW, you have to admit.

I'm glad. I hate sports getting political. Might be in the minority on that but I don't believe in sport boycotts for political reasons.

Even if they are murdering commies, which they are.

The biggest issue is the criminals running the IOC....if they had an ounce of sense or decency the greedy bastards would not award any games to countries with human rights issues....I don't believe in a boycott for the simple reason that the athletes who dedicate their lives to representing their countries deserve the opportunity to compete...

I'm just not really into winter sports.

Skiing, ice skating, curling, hockey...... all things that don't interest me.

Especially figure skating.

Major fan of Mikaela Shiffrin, from my home state, sooooo bummed she missed that I think it was fifth gate, rooting for her in her next events. Come on, girl you can do it! Mikaela Shiffrin disqualified from Winter Olympics giant slalom | 9news.com

    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.

    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
    • ADV wrote most of the debut. but that was before he burned himself out writing another 4000 songs of course the main problem is it isn't Revolution Saints. If you still want to showcase DC pick some more band members and call it something else but don't pretend its Rev Saints anymore. 
    • I don't have as much disdain for Del Vecchio as some do, but I can't help but feel like this sounds very... generic in an ADV kind of way? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, it's just that I've only listened to it once, but it feels like I've heard it about 300 times because it sounds like so many other songs Del Vecchio has produced. Secondly, since they've outright admitted that Revolution Saints was meant as a vehicle to showcase Castronovo, without Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich, I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't just make a Deen Castronovo solo record instead. Surely at this point, anyone familiar with Frontiers, melodic rock music and especially Revolution Saints knows who he is.
