  1. Depends, if he skates decently clean, just 3 clean quads would probably do it for the free. Especially if 1 of the quads is a 4Lz or 4F. I think his biggest competition would be Voronov and Nam, neither of whom would have the BV to compete against him. Well Voronov may, if he lands the 4Loop in SP without calls, but I'm less worried about Nate's SP (despite not seeing it in any competition yet). But if both Voronov and Nate are clean, I think Nate would still win. Nam doesn't have the quad tally yet if Nate goes clean. Zhou...depends, he tends to get carrots (correctly usually), so that would lower his TES even if he and Nate land the same type and number of quads. And so far, US would not hype his PCS over Nate yet.

    I grouch about his PCS at ACI, because it seems like subtlety is sometimes lost on judges. Very few skaters can really jump and land jumps and make jumps blend into a quiet section of music. Yuzu can-and the jumps aren't small ones either, they are large, tidy, neat and light airy jumps. It's beautiful technique, and with his SS it enables him to do so much. It's going to be a while before we get another skater at this level.

    Took the costumes one too. Results are surprising (NOT) Can't believe I had a 7 way tie for 4th place. o_O

    Otonal

    The fingers in Otonal, it's softer than even Swanyu's.
  5. Yes yes, but a lot of the WD are among my faves. (otherwise fingers, toes, elbows, all limbs, tongue too crossed- so far the men's field seem less touched)
  6. This season is a bit weird in terms of WD for GP series. So many injuries....Skating gods, you guys had one (1) job!

    I would like to nominate Javi's Prometo followed by Tango Amore. In that order. Both that Javi's Ina Bauer goes right in front of you, and maybe Plush can shimmy in front of you (if not pick you directly from the audience). This isn't evil, this is just helping the skating gods understand how to fulfill dreams and wishes. *polishes halo* you may thank me later. =P

    The evil part is when they threw up LGC and Hope and Legacy together and asked me to choose. I'm sorry, but seriously?! How can I?! Those programs are a set, and I can't see LGC independent of H&L's magnificence. So everything got tied.

    Okay....hi there skating gods, please ensure that Plushenko molests KatjaThera- slightly, not too much, because we wouldn't mind seeing her blush, just not fainting though. We would like at least this satellite to be alive till after Worlds. As a satellite, only your kohai, Yuzu, has the right to cause fainting for now.

    不知道。 好像论坛里说今年NHK杯比世锦赛好买一点。 个人觉得加拿大的比赛相对来讲是最容易买票的-售票时间通常会提前给, 也会有比较大的售票机构来把控, 总体流程比较舒畅。

    *shakes hands* The first time I took it, I had a 11-way tie for first place. It kept on asking me to decide between Seimei and Origin and Otonal and PW and Chopin and Notte Stellata.

    Guess Jack's 'Today's Yuzu' for tomorrow!

    It's hard to find anyone who isn't manipulative. It's probably just part of basic survival instincts (else why did we cry as babies?). He is demanding, strict, maybe a bit pushy and bossy, but I think back to Nobu saying that Yuzu is the type of "S" that you like, it's because when you hear him describe his goal and his idea, you realize that the goal is a higher place, a better place than we are currently at. And anyone who has any ambition will probably follow along and go for that new goal Yuzu presented. Even if it's not completely clear at the start, just a very nebulous thing that you have to flesh out in detail. It also enriches others and inspires others in the process-and isn't that a source of happiness?

    I would like to suggest 2 videos for Jack: 1) English press conference post Olympics: 2) Japanese press conference post Olympics: Yuzuru's brilliant replies to the media. Considerate, well thought out. mature and with diginity beyond his age. All of us can learn a bit from him.

    Okay, it's only about 15 more days before we see him again on ice. And yes, I miss watching his blades swoosh around a rink.

    My wallet is so glad that I'm not in Japan. Else the resistance might be worn down enough by the clearfiles offensive to venture out into the wild unknown's mornings, snooping around combinis for clear files which will be used as wall and desk decorations than anything remotely practical.
