Guess I'm Excited About The Olympics Now

After hearing that all 300+ 2K8 Olympic events will be scored by Jamie Hewlett, then condensed into a 30-minute mashup with 80s British cartoons and Damon Albarn compositions*. Kicking that off is this animated promotional sequence based on the classical Chinese folk tale "Journey to the West" (also known as "Monkey").

I think this is a great way to get young alts really razzed about the XXIX Olympiad, especially some of the more extreme sports like badminton and table tennis that, technically, you could just drink a bunch of AMP and start training for immediately.

Gorillaz - Hong Kong (from D-Sides)

What should Damon Albarn do next?

  • Film a new Monkeez sitcom
  • Record Song #3 for the new Blur LP
  • Grill cheese with Danger Mouse
  • Shenanigans!
