This is London

Awesome, isn’t it.

It also says to me that this is a Worldcon bid with a bit of ambition. I like that. More information here.

    Wow! Now *there’s* an opening argument :>

  2. Cool video! I had never realized how many times the tower of Big Ben has been hit, damaged, and blown up in science fiction movies. I find it a good sign that the bid logo uses the rocket with the Gherkin rather than the more traditional London skyline buildings, e.g., St. Paul’s. It’s appropriately futuristic!

    That is a cool video. It almost makes me want to pre-support London and soon Even though it is over a $1,000 RT from DC to LOndon right now.

    Plenty of time to start saving!

    Personally, I think it needed a giant kitten, but maybe that’s just me.

  8. Much as I love the song, I’m not sure “You know what they said? Well some of it was true!” is the most reassuring lyric for a bid theme…

      Yes, I too had that thought .. thanks for taking the blame for expressing it. Perhaps it was a bit too Punkish?

      Setting to one side various Classical Musical pieces, and giving thought to, say, a Literary/Book-Cover Visual Compilation ? .. Then, what would be a better Sound Track?

      I suggest a competition .. a Sponsored Competition – ask ‘ Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson ‘

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_Johnson

      to contribute support? for you/they sorely need the Money …

      For a Presentation Piece.

      Media Students in London Based University based Degree Courses and London based Schools with some sort of mid -point ?

      Just a passing Thought.

  9. “Perhaps it was a bit too Punkish?”

    Only if it were the Sex Pistols doing “God Save the Queen”.
