    This "first pancake" thing got me thinking. I'd venture say he hasn't peaked in terms of artistic maturity, judging from his performances in Continues with Wings and Fantasy on Ice. He is someone who delivers a mesmerizing, sublime performance even when he falls. Heck, even his practice looks hypnotizing, even if you turn off the amazing music in the video below: I'd choose a Yuzu program that's not fully baked or has imperfect jump(s) over others' programs any day. It's also nice to see him evolve.

    Years ago I used a bibliographic management program called Procite, which was a powerful program that might be useful for building the kind of system you have in mind. It was essentially a database. Sadly it's bought and then killed by the company that makes Endnote. It'd be very handy if PH could have an area with a master list or database of Yuzu videos, interviews, books, & translations that's searchable but the search results would have the option of not having other things (e.g., chats from forums) mixed in.

    Can't wait to see Yuzu's new programs. With his physical condition in a good shape and the two world records last season (albeit a truncated one,) I have high hopes. He said before that when his physical condition is not the best his mental condition is primed optimally and together they produce good results. I hope he will produce satisfactory outcomes when he's physically well, too. Might we see you at ACI, Yuzu? Please ...

    FIFA World Cup 2018

    Well said. The final game did have all the dramatic elements you mentioned. Both sides were wonderful fighters. There were so many great plays that it was quite a memorable game. I like the "democratic" side of soccer. It costs so little to play and even excel. That's why it's so popular. That's also why so many great players came from poor families or a very modest background. Figure skating, on the other hand, has a pretty high entry barrier. For this reason, it's most likely never going to be nearly as popular as soccer. It makes people like us happy all the same, though, doesn't it? Every moment I watch Yuzu skate is sheer joy. I can't say the same with soccer watching, no matter how great a game it might be.

    Both the French and Croatian presidents stood in line to embrace all players from both teams. Putin got an umbrella shortly after it started to rain. The drip from that umbrella fell on Macron's shoulders. He was totally undeterred and continued embracing everyone. So did the Croatian president. They both got soaked before someone put an umbrella above their heads, which was quite a while later. The way Macron embraced players was special. It's not the typical ceremonial way. He held their heads and talked to them (including the Croatian players) one by one for what seemed like more than 10 seconds each. I saw all of this on the BBC.
  6. Thanks for the info! I was unaware of the license requirement. I've sent our airbnb host a message twice but haven't heard back from her. It's good that we have a backup that's not airbnb.

    The Croatians are warriors. I hope them to score more goals. I also want France to score a legitimate goal.

    Thank you! That tumblr site does have lots of full-size Yuzu photos. I didn't see "tools" under google images, though. The photos I was able to download after selecting "extra large" under "sizes" still didn't give me good enough resolution for large prints.

    Belgium kept their tactic of high ball possession. It worked until this time, but they still deserve to be proud.

    Spain's last game comes to mind. They kept passing the ball in mid field as if the game would go on forever, even when they were behind.

    Belgium's ball possession is a lot higher than France's (61 vs 39%), but the French defense is looking strong. Time is running out, though.
