Now THAT'S a dress
So I've been watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympics on the HDTV here in the office. NBC has been re-airing it on a continuous loop on their special HD channel. I've been half-watching an endless line of nations stroll into Olympic Stadium since this morning. About an hour ago, Bjork popped up out of nowhere.
The TVs on mute so I have no idea what she was singing but the real story is her super-weird dress. It consisted of a million yards of oceanic fabric that stretched out of the athlete's heads, forming a gigantic planet Earth.
This is probably the most garish, over-the-top thing I've seen in...at least a week. Way to go, Bjork.
PS: The torch/rocket is also neat.
