  1. We put together this, to be able to find fans sitting near you. It's nowhere near full, but it could come in handy https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iqo8NKkzS97rx-dopDrZ9DfS0MbIErnHMmVujMkXUB8/edit?usp=sharing

    Actually, if I remember correctly, Javi's Ina Bauer ends right in front of me... or thereabouts... and there's at least one arms crossed above his head moment around there. I think... I don't remember where the moments of Plush's Tango Amore happen lol Well, if the skating gods were really super nice to me, there would be a reverse of Continues, with a live broadcast from some anonymous rink in Moscow and a certain kitty doing a costume rehearsal of his Ex for the next day's gala >_> (Though in Continues style, if it happened, it should happen for the Madrid final; imagine Yuzu going live from Ice Rink Sendai ) But if not, I could do with Plush physically molesting and Javi emotionally molesting me, just fine, too lol

    You are evil! lol I wonder if he might do Nijinsky, though... Hmm... oh, Sex Bomb is dangerous, too...

    I'm going to Malaga... wouldn't be able to travel that close to the holidays to go to Madrid ^_^; (Although traveling to Madrid would definitely be easier and less of a pain than traveling to Malaga...) But hey, I'm (probably; they said VIP means meeting all the guest skaters, not just Javi...) going to meet Plushenko, so... (It just crossed my mind yesterday that I'm front row... if he does Tango Amore, I'll get nervous lol Though the chances of him picking me to molest, out of everyone there aren't great. But still, you never know >_> I'm not sure if I'd want it or not LOL)

    It gets practical whether you want it or not because you stock up on gum! My xylitol gum stock from last year lasted me months lol (and I had gone years without chewing gum before that...) I have a binder of clearfiles now, most of them Yuzu. I tried using an X Japan one once but it got scratches, so, since then, my clearfiles are collectibles. However I do have an extra hydroblade from last year and that one I do use.

    I'm not sure you can use Yahoo Auctions Japan from abroad (I know a few years ago you couldn't). But proxy/shopping in Japan sites often have an option to buy from Yahoo Auctions. I use ZenMarket ^_^

    Many clearfiles sold out early in the morning it seems... there was a tweet by someone who was at a store at opening time, 5:30am and said the lady at the front of the line took them all >_< I actually gave in and bought a set of the more regular ones from Yahoo Auctions, for a still ridiculously high price... Though not as high as others there. There was a ポプラ right next to the hotel I usually stayed at in Tokyo... Wish I was there... Though actually even last year when they were far more common, some clearfiles were really hard to find. After a while I just got tired ^_^;

    I think it depends a lot also in what shows the surprise guest(s) will skate in... if it's just the December shows, it can be Scott and Tessa, if it's not, then other dates... I'm not sure Daisuke will have time for shows if he's serious about competing. I can't really imagine Yuna doing shows in Spain, but it would definitely be a huge surprise. And Mao has skated in Spain, so it can't be her as the bomb (but could be one of the other big names). I'm not sure Yulia would count as a bomb, though, especially for Spanish spectators... but not sure about this. No idea who it could be... I know I'd love to see Johnny (not as the big bomb), too... And Nobu! But they'll both likely be in Moscow reporting/commentating... (for Malaga at least)

    I'm thinking Tessa and Scott. Others seem to think it's them, too. Plus, wasn't Plushenko in the original ROI? Or was it just my impression? I can't really imagine anyone else... Also, hasn't Mao skated in Spain? In one of the GPFs?

    The first skaters for Revolution on Ice were published on the website: http://revolutiononice.com/ So far we have Elladj Balde, Jeffrey Buttle, Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte, Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, Yuka Sato, Olivia Smart and Adrian Diaz (not in Malaga T_T I really wanted to see them again!) and some others I don't know ^_^; Also someone mentioned Ondrej, but I can't see him on the website. Apparently the full lists will be revealed next week and will include a bomb announcement of someone who has never skated in Spain before, as well as a last minute addition.

  13. Sadly, they said they do not have a luggage storage option. There are rentable lockers for storing luggage at the Helsinki Railway Station, downtown. Depending on how big they are, you might be able to keep them with you... there seems to be some space in front of and under the seats in the virtual view thing... but that could be misleading due to angles...

    I also think it's fairly low... I think he'll be far more focused on Worlds. He went in 2017 probably just because it was in Pyeongchang. And before that I think he went pretty much where he was told. From my understanding, 4CC was usually where federations sent their B teams. It's rather rare that the top of the top go there. Being so close to Worlds, there's not much point unless they really need the mileage. The traveling isn't really worth it. And even though it's technically not that far this time, I'm not sure a trip to California in the midst of preparations for Worlds in Toronto makes much sense (I'm not sure, but I think it'd also be a bit of a temperature change and that's always risky, as it can lead to colds and/or fevers and with Yuzu aiming for Nessie, I'd really rather he never sets foot on ice while sick again...). That said, it is the only title he has left and he might want to fight it out with Nathan again - assuming Nathan is going - one more time before Worlds. So who knows... but I wouldn't hold my breath. (I wouldn't be surprised if, in the circumstances of a good result at Nationals, Daisuke might go to 4CC, though...)
  15. I used the app last month and it's pretty awesome. You don't have to carry around tickets, the tickets are kept in the app (and afterwards you can export receipts for them, too). Also, you can search for routes and buy tickets for those routes (for example, if you're unsure whether you need a local Helsinki ticket, or a regional ticket, the app just selects the type of ticket you need for that route). It also tells you if a ticket you already have in your phone is valid for that route. And you can buy a ticket and decide starting what time it should be active, which also helps (though it can also be an issue if you cut it too close lol I once had to let a tram pass by because my ticket hadn't activated yet). There is staff checking tickets in trams and you need to select the ticket and tap a certain button. it shows a QR code on your phone that staff scans and checks. It's really the most awesome transportation app I've encountered so far. (Some reviews say it has issues, but I only had one issue, where it said my regional ticket wasn't valid for the second part of my trip to the hotel, although it should have been, so to be safe, I just bought another ticket. But that was the only issue I encountered.) Oh, also, for the routes, it uses the station numbers, which are SUPER handy (I really wished they had that in Toronto when I was running back and forth between bus stations trying to figure out which was the right one). Especially as the same stop in different directions has different numbers. So the chances of taking a tram/bus in the wrong direction are really small. Also, the downtown area is pretty small, so it's possible to walk most places. Although, of course, the weather might make walking more difficult. So if you stay near the venue, you might not really need to make many tram trips. For myself, I'll probably only do hotel-venue, venue-hotel every day, so overall, it's not worth it to buy a multiple day ticket. For seeing how much you'd have to walk, I also recommend Google Maps. Their directions and indications of distance and times are usually pretty accurate.
