fialleril: [a bit like The Idiot, only written by someone much less talented than Dostoevsky] (Jar Jar Binks)
Getting all excited for the Olympics today, heck yes. And also very annoyed with NBC.

They have all sorts of great live streaming and special video content on their website, but you have to have a TV provider to watch it.

Protip, NBC: I would like to watch the Olympics via your website because I do not have a TV. Therefore, I do not have a TV subscription of any kind. That is in fact why I would like to use your service!

This is both annoying and oddly hilarious to me, because my parents have often told the story of how they bought their first TV, back in the day when I was a tiny spritely thing, for the express purpose of watching the Olympics.

This is a family problem, is what I'm saying.

Oh. I see.

Haven't been able to find video for most of the opening ceremony yet, but I did see this on NBC's site.

And. Well. If there's one thing I didn't expect to see at the Olympics, it's children being rescued from a giant Voldemort by an army of Mary Poppins clones descending from the sky.

I was not expecting it, but I like it.

If anybody knows a link with better video options/live feed, let me know?
