  1. Ah, sorry for the cross-posting, I didn't realize that this is where all the GPs go. Selling Skate Canada All-Event ticket (one ticket) Row S, Section 116 (Behind judges). 110 USD.

    I love you guys - this place is like a beehive! All the buzz before, during and after his program revelation. (And then it'll be Autumn Classic, and all the buzz, during and after that etc...) The Planet is never quiet!

    Random Thought Theater

    @Whee1000 yeah I've been to sapporo. It's a grid city , quite modern, only built up early 1900s. It reminded me of Nagoya crossed with Manhattan, but much less people. I went in August, weather was pleasant, way cooler than the rest of Japan. The rest of Hokkaido is like Alaska or Orgeon. Beautiful nature, must visit, and quite non-Japanese. Have fun travelling!
  5. Nice! Italian icecream is really good huh. I'm jealous. All the icecream shops in Germany are gelateria (or they pretend to be). I don't stress-bake at all, my hubbie does that and I just mooch off his product. When I'm stressed out because of work, I just ... work more. My friends don't get it, but it makes perfect sense to me: if that's the source of stress, then I got to address it!

    It's interesting to hear everyone's weather report. Mine is pretty weird this summer too (for now I'm in Southeast asia): lots of rain and humidity, average temp 32... Though this is strictly *better* than previous summers (where it's high humidity, no rain, and average temp 38). I feel for you all. Yes, climate change - pretty depressing. I don't even think Canberra (where my family lives in Australia) will even be inhabitable in the next 20 years at this rate. My dream is to convince them to relocate to Tasmania or New Zealand

    The post Hanyu era

    Oh wow, it's interesting to hear your 6.0 perspective, @rockstaryuzu. Thanks! I came from other less subjective sports, so the ISU weirdo scoring system really infuriates me. Good to know that it's actually an improvement of what came before! I'm fascinated with Yuzuru Hany the athlete (it doesn't matter if he's doing FS or skiing or boxing). So once he retired I guess that's it for me - I would be interested in books / biographies etc of his, to understand how one can overcome so many obstacles, but I probably won't follow FS so much. Ice shows won't cut it for me Figure skating is an extremely beautiful sport, it won't die for sure, but personally I'm not so emotionally invested in it (simply because I have other sports that I actually practice, and therefore can appreciate it at a much deeper level).

    @CupidsBow Serious?! Are these your photos? Pretty amazing! On jumps: If 4A is his only motivation (so he said), then I would expect it him to be training it 24/7 and roll it out by Worlds the latest. (Unless if Brian stops him). In any case, can't wait for his new program!

    Good sighting training, that photo. My initial reaction was like "huh, off topic?" Then next thought: "oh, I'm supposed to find Yuzu here". To be honest if that photo wasn't posted here, I wouldn't have 100% confidence that it's him. Nomura Mansai has such a big name to live up to (his father is a national treasure or something). I can't imagine the stress. Does well, that uncle. And yep, I feel like he's a big fan of Zu.

    Guess the New Programs! (and win nothing if you do)

    I dunno about Firebird, that's such a warhorse. After seeing Machida doing it, I'm somehow convinced that it's a bad choice for anyone. The music is cool though (but even then it's such a warhorse for orchestras). Good memory on the interview. I remember somewhere that he said he would like Jazz in one of the past off seasons... (can't find it right now, should have bookmarked it).

    That matatabido mug is sooo cute. I also like the Ina Bauer cat, nice shout out to Shizu chan. This is going to turn Sendai into a tourist hotspot for me.

    What's the horizontal axis for? And I wonder what the size of the circles mean?

    Thanks so much! I love it. Now I have extra reasons to look forward to media day this year.

    @Xen and @Murieleirum: so where is this home-brewed One Day More? I'd love to see it!

    Bumping this thread since August is getting close! Jazz for SP would be my guess. FS... hmmm..MMM.mmm... something serious. Maybe a violin classics. I don't think Yuzu would go and do two funky programs in one shot.
