    It seems there is no training camp this year and I guess it could be possible he won't be at Beat the Heat and leave it all to Javi, but the poster definitely hints he'll be there. Could it be that with Stephen starting in juniors, he'll get another main coach? (Assuming Brian did go with him to competitions before, of which I have no idea.) Or maybe Brian wants him to learn to be less dependent on him from an early age (remembering Javi and Yuzu's performances when Brian was out of commission last year >_>) As for Jack's question, I was sure Yuzu had won when I saw the TES at the end of Shoma's program. The difference was too small to cover the SP difference, it was unlikely the TES would increase and even if so, not by much and there was no way he would get more PCS than Yuzu. But the first time I thought he would win was right before the 6 minutes warmup, when they showed him, rink side and he smiled. It was a very rational reaction of "OMG, he's smiling! OMG, he's relaxed! OMG, he's gonna win this!!!!!!"

    It's a small event, organized by the Brian Orser Foundation. I think the only one who has been sort of regularly there is Javi, though I found Gabby went to a previous event, too. I think (I haven't had the chance to properly research) that previously there was a sort of skating camp, and the show was a sort of gala at the end of that. Also, in 2013, Kurt Browning was also involved, it seems. Link to some basic info about this year's show:

    That's kind of sad...

    lol But if it's not a troll, we'll all be wondering who it was that spilled the secret lol The thing is, usually Brian's show was preceded by a sort of Summer Camp and skating classes in Muskoka, and with Javi already in Muskoka, I wondered if maybe Brian will be there, already, too. In which case, it would be unlikely, as media day won't happen without Brian. But there is nothing to confirm there will be a Summer Camp or indeed anything in Muskoka until Saturday, so nothing to contradict this possibility.

    Hmm... it's possible I guess... At least we won't have to wait too long to find out if it's true or not...

    He could probably post and block comments every time (I think Instagram has that option?), but he could still get tagged to stuff and I'm not sure he could block messages, so... yeah. Better not. On the other hand, if he weren't so 'mysterious' and private, it could be that some fans would stop being so desperate... but I don't think it's worth it to try it. That said, depending on his plans post-retirement (I know what I dream of for him lol), he might then open a website, at least, to further promote those plans. Javi has a website, but it's not really up to date (I just checked it yesterday and it even has errors).

    *imagines Yuzu popping up on instagram one day and his first post is: "Hi! I have instagram now! Btw, here's a quad axel! Enjoy!" * Truth is, in a way I love how popular and successful Yuzu without having SNS, a website, an agency or even actual managers that we know of... It also means he probably has full control of his image and activities, more than he'd have if he had any of those things (he wouldn't have time to keep track of SNS or micromanage a website and an agency or managers would just tell him not to worry his pretty head about things unrelated to skating and make decisions for him). OK, he probably hands a lot of control to his mother, but still. She's his mother, not some stranger.
  8. I think it's hard to decide without knowing the more detailed schedule... for me at least, depending on public transportation, it's hard to commit to anything until I know for sure the comings and goings. So I think there's a big chance we'll just improvise on the spot ^_^; We could start a PM thread with everyone attending, to further discuss and also keep in touch throughout the event? For more instant communication...

    I think you're right. At worst, pain does imply injury, but IMO, injured is still different from damaged (damaged to me implies something more permanent). Also that "ashi" I took it to mean the whole leg or maybe even both legs, especially since he then goes on to talk about the knee. And I haven't heard of other translations, but I'm not exactly the greatest finder of Yuzu things lol It's now so... Brian did say it made him nervous that Yuzu was ready for the Olympics in August, but that in the end it was a good thing, because he could fall back on that when he got injured. But knowing he messed up his body already then in order to achieve that... I personally always cringed a bit at how adamant he was about not getting injured in the Olympic Season, like he was jinxing it. He also seemed somehow... dark about it, to me. But in fact, it seems he was sort of injured from the very beginning... I guess that could explain why he seemed dark... But the thing about "If you win, it's your merit, if you don't, it's my responsibility" is something that would never work with Yuzu, I think. (And it's probably quite far from Brian's own philosophy, where he wants his skaters to own what they do on the ice and take full responsibility for it, even if officially, when required, he will take it on their behalf - see CoC14. The important thing is for them to feel that responsibility.) He did have a website. You can find it if you search Web Archive. No idea why it was taken down... I'm sure they had their reasons...

    Just to clarify, he doesn't literally say "Dear me." It's more of an exclamation. What he says is the Spanish version of the much better known Italian "mama mia!" So more of an "Oh, boy!" sort of thing ^_^ And in other news, seems Javi is back in Canada, judging by his new instastory. I'm guessing he's getting ready for Brian's show on Saturday... (I wish I lived around there... $60 to see the show and hang out with them? What a bargain! I'm paying 130EUR to meet and hang out with Javi and whoever else will be at his show lol)

    Maybe they'll make another trailer for the new season like the one for the Olympics, and give us teasing images of their new looks...

    Jun seemed normal in that teaser video with Jason and Gabby... so there's still hope lol (Although admittedly, his hair was mostly covered)

    Well, the cringey part with the actor playing Yuzu, about how the makers of the movie virtually begged him to do the movie was new, I think. But yep, that was it... The evil overlord is still in his secret cave in Toronto... (getting ready to kill us with his new programs whenever the time comes...)

    Today is the TBS show (2pm, JST), FaOI Kanazawa Day 3 (not sure what time) and tomorrow H&F Day 1 (i.e. no Yuzu day), I think. Next weekend are days 2 and 3 (they're all in the calendar except the TBS one) as well as 24HTV... Busy times ahead...
  15. They should be announcing the full list of athletes soon, no? (they said mid-August and it's just past mid-August )
