  1. Thanks for providing a very weird soundtrack for the opening ceremonies. Yao Ming was stomping around the stadium in front of a crowd of hundreds of Chinese athletes while that commentator was ranting about Pepsi changing the color of its cans. I think I now know what Hunter S. Thompson felt like while watching Vietnam footage during his adrenechrome stint in Vegas and it’s all your fault.

    If this marks the dusk of the American empire and the beginning of a Chinese one, I can’t think of a better way to watch it all unfold.

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words.
    You listened to it in exactly the way I had intended; as a simulcast of the big, bread and circuses show.
    I’m so glad you enjoyed it and have to agree with your assessment of the event. I think the West is falling like all empires must and – even with China’s abhorrent human rights record – the East is rising to prominence.
    China’s also been around a hellavu lot longer than us and had the patience to wait us out.
