    It appears someone has swapped the Paralympic closing ceremony with a Coldplay gig.

    Spirits of seasons.
    Big metal fish.
    Big metal grasshopper.
    Crows on stilts.
    Coldplay and Rihanna.


    I have no idea what's going on.
    But it's colourful.

    Don't forget Londoners, if you can sneak out tomorrow, you can see TeamGB, Olympic and Paralympic, on a parade through London from Mansion House to the Palace via Trafalgar Square. More details here.

    Lucky me I got 2 weeks off so I'll be there.

    Meanwhile, Jay Z will be on soon.

    Fuck fuck fuck fuckity fuckfuck fucking fuck fuck fuuuuuck!

    Every stadium should have those pixel displays. Very useful for hanging one's binoculars.

    Having watched both the closing ceremonies I've come to the stark realisation that Brasilian music is garbage, and their artists are truly dreadful at miming.

    I thought that was a better closing ceremony than the Olympic one.

    Seems like the loudest crowd yet.

    What business does Rihanna and Jay Z have performing at the closing ceremony of the UK games? Couldn't they find anyone more local?

    Nobody else probably wanted to be on the same stage as Coldplay.

    Oh seriously, get these two Americans with their soulless music out of this stadium. Not a Coldplay fan but at least their music is heartfelt instead of strutting. I guess this is what the world at large wants, I'm going to go back to being weary with it. Summer's over.

    Edit: mercifully brief. I guess he charges by the minute.

    I wonder how much they paid Jay Z to perform for all of 2 minutes.

    Those fireworks sounded immense from my house about 5 miles west of the Olympic park. About 10 minutes ago, that's some delay on the live feed.

    Well that was awesome. A much better closing ceremony than the other one.

    So. That's it. May as well spend your evenings with your head in the oven now. Or watching Eastenders. Or on here. : (

    Is that what that noise was? Heard some noise about quarter of an hour ago and didn't know what it was.

    Fireworks.

    Makes sense.

    About 7-8 miles out myself.
