  1. [TV Broadcast] Stars on Ice Japan Tour 2018

    it starts at 13:55 April 6th in Japan. I don't know what time zone you're in, but if it helps any it starts at 12:55am April 6th on the east coast in the US.

    My schoolwork, classes, other obligations, and my overall sleep schedule are going to hate me for staying up for this but, I'm staying up for this.

    Yeah I would really like to have a bracelet too, also if they were made available on HMV I could throw them into my current order and pay nothing additional for shipping. They're also just super cool looking. Still wouldn't be able to decide which one I want though.

    That's actually a really good idea that I might try myself. In the end I don't really mind paying a bit more for that shipping, but if I can get it cheaper through a proxy I will, keeping in mind the proxy service fees and stuff.

    Yeah this is kind of a luxury purchase, especially for people living outside of Japan. HMV offers free shipping on purchases exceeding a given price, which one t-shirt alone exceeds, so people in Japan can get free shipping but international shipping is a bit of a killer. For me, shipping is almost $18 and the shirts themselves are just about $24 each. However, I am fortunate enough to be in a financial situation where I can afford this purchase, and while my wallet will probably hate me for awhile, I'm not going to have to make sacrifices with food and such to make such a purchase. But to answer about the shipping cost to Indonesia, it is cheaper (1500 yen) than to ship to any European country (2200 yen). This is the shipping prices for orders of 3 items or less.

    The shirts *may* still be in stalk but I don't think anything can be promised. They've been selling out and restocked quite a bit but it all comes down to however many were made up, if more will be printed, and how many are reserved for sale at the parade exclusively. That's actually a really cute idea. Maybe after a bit of wear I'll do that to mine. I don't really have a need for throw pillows right now though.

    Well the $33 includes the cost of the shipping. For both variations and shipping, it's $66, so $33 a shirt. I also have considered that it's for the parade and such and is working more as a donation than a revenue stream for a corporation. I've also kept in mind that whenever I get a graphic shirt from somewhere, it usually ends up being as much as those shirts are when sales tax is factored in. I'll just consider them a graduation gift to myself.

    I don't "technically" need any new t-shirts but I have room in my wardrobe for it so. I've also been wanting some kind of figure skating t-shirt for awhile so these shirts would check that box. I'd also be getting both of them because it's the only way I can justify the 1900 yen shipping for orders of 3 items or less. I'd love to have one of the bracelets too but those don't seem to be up for sale online.

    Has anyone brought up the official shirts for the Sendai parade and how they're up for sale on hmv? I've been trying to persuade myself all morning that $33 a t-shirt is reasonable. I think it's working.

    I feel like one reason why Koola King dedicates so many videos and so much time to picking out Zhenya is because of how frequently Zhenya doesn't get marked for edge violations. Zhenya's also kind of become the figure head of women's figure skating and is the most prominent example of ISU judging bias. I also believe that it's hard to deny that Zhenya's name in a video title is going to generate clicks and, while Koola King does appear to resort to some clickbaity tactics, it's done as a means to inform people about such bias. I will agree that some of them do have some bias to them, such as one where she compares the program diversity of Yuna Kim to Evgenia Medvedeva, but for the most part I've found her videos to be very informative, particularly the one where jump simulations were taken straight from the ISU and compared to Evgenia's.

    Man I want baklava now too, also known as squared diabetes at least in my family considering how much sugar is in those things.

    That's kind of my general philosophy with cooking as well, except sometimes the color of foods can get to me if I don't know what's in it but I feel like that's a bit different from presentation. If there's this funny looking green stuff poking out and I don't know if there's spinach in it, or what that color's coming from, I'm likely to not want to eat it.

    At least take solace in the fact that edible beauty came from your pain.

    It takes less time to eat food than it does to cook it most of the time.
