    [Tv Broadcast] Fantasy on Ice 2018 in KOBE

    How old is he - 5 or 6? At that age it’s all about themselves - holds true for the opposite end of the spectrum - over 80s return to that self centred phase, speaking as someone who regularly copes with octogenarians and recently had a 4 year old to stay. It’s a lot more charming in children, partly because you can send them for a nap if they get overwrought whether they want to or not.

    I like Javiers IB - I also like Satokos and Shizukas - but Yuzurus is perfect - a better flexibility than J, but not that slightly distorted effect I personally sometimes find a bit too contorted with S and As versions.

    I don’t think it’s fair to judge on a skate in a show rink which looks small even for a show - I’d like to have a proper look at it without a lagging connection and better camera work.

    If he’s going to use this as an ex some of the western commentators are going to freak out over the costume

    Nope - PVC Merry Widow doesn’t look good either - give me Akikos dress sense every time

    I’ve never liked these costumes - lots of mesh- Miki had a penchant for them

    Nobu is a real example of how being released from the straightjacket of competition requirements can rejuvenate a skater

    General Yuzuru chat

    I’m astonished they did it - Uchimura and Yamamura look very uncomfortable- Kato and Shirai look nervous - only Tanaka looks like he’s happy with it. I suppose it’s difficult to say no when it’s such an emotional national topic - also harder to do. I bet it felt harder to do than winning the medal!

    Mystifying decision by the tv company but I’m very grateful

    Random Thought Theater

    Depressed - not personally (though there’s probably a bit of a spillover, but this is a general gripe) - switched off Norton’s chat show featuring a load of ‘mature’ Hollywood actresses promoting their new film. The intro consisted of the lot of them ( 5/6- couldn’t endure it long enough to count) squealing at each other and GN as they were being introduced. These are women with careers supposedly promoting a film that is presumably the film industrys answer to the criticism of not enough women/ older women etc etc. - and they’re squealing -on a chat show-

    If it’s any consolation the boys agree - not that they’re interested of course 🙄
