All that showflake nonsense is my new favorite example and at the same time the new low for, especially, US and British media.
So, on the one hand we have two hours of incredibly well-thought and prepared pure artistic awesomeness, while on the other hand we have some minor glitch in timing of the snowflakes transforming into the rings, which took, like, couple of seconds to fix. Guess what have made it into the news?
This is EXACTLY how my country is represented in the English-speaking media. Any time, any day. THIS is the goddamn problem. Bad news are the ONLY sort of news foreign audience is interested in. Everyone is just craving for us to fail.
