    Let's Go Crazy!

Personal Info

  1. General Yuzuru chat

    Since Yuzu is (was ?) good friends with mura and kanako, I've always been under the impression that they "coordinated" a PotO team Japan back then

    Sorry for the off topic, it's getting political so I put it in quotes

    People begging in the metro are common, yes, and always have, it's almost a "tradition". But they shouldn't make you uncomfortable (not more uncomfortable than distress and poverty could, in any case). As for the police getting someone off or prevent someone getting in ? I've never seen that myself, but I imagine that it could happen in some area. I think it really depends where and when you went. All in all, if there was a figure skating championship in Bercy, that would be no problem since it's a very safe district. As for the terrorists threat, the Bataclan attack was a deep traumatism, if you went in paris around that time, no wonder you felt the mood was very strange. (And I've lived in Paris and suburbs for 40 years and never had a single serious problem)

    Well, perhaps she is, but in this case it's just a french book about figure skaters going to pyeongchang that happens to have Yuzu on its cover (which is a veeery good choice, I think we all agree on that ). She even probably has a few shots of herself inside. (I considered buying this book but never went for it... yet)

    I thought it was 6 jump passes in the new FS ? Edit : or perhaps 7, as Xen said.

    Wow. Sorry, but the guy in black, on the left, is GOOD !

    I was a big fan of this program at the beginning of the season. I couldn't wait to see how it would develop... I've been disappointed, to say the least.

    I... don't understand why you don't understand why we couldn't love several skaters at the same time ??? We love the sport, and those who excel at it, how is it difficult to understand ? It's true I think that many Yuzu fan love Boyang too. At least on tumblr. I think that it is simply because Boyang visibly strives for the same cocktail of technical perfection and artistry as Yuzu, in the long term. Technically, his jumps are great. Artistically, he's not quite there yet, but he visibly wants to improve, and he gets kudos for it. There's also the fact that Yuzu visibly likes him best amongst the yound skaters. It helps Also, Boyang never got any help from judges, so there's no bitterness involved regarding his scores (contrary to Shoma or Nathan). As for Nathan... There are fans of both. But I think the fact that he abandoned artistry and transitions for the sake of mass jumping, this season, when he had such great programs at the beginning of the season, was a big cold shower for many Yuzu fans. It was for me, at least. And all the politicking around Nathan has iritated many Yuzu fans, even if it's not his fault. As for myself, I'm ready to love Nathan again if he puts back artistry and transitions in his programs. And a real choreo sequence, FFS !
  10. many great photos of team France on this instagram account : (and apparently there was a gala next to my home a few days ago and I didn't know it )
  11. Programs we remember

    Just putting a message here to say that this thread is amazing and that's a pity it hasn't been updated for so long. I wish I could contribute, however I'm not very knowledgable about figure skating history
  12. General Yuzuru chat

    Yes !!! Thanks a lot
  13. General Yuzuru chat

    Ah, by the way, - it's not directly Yuzu related but I don't know where I could ask : there was this wonderful thread a while ago, showing "classic programs" in figure skating history, with a lot of context, explanations - it was absolutely great to know more about figure skating history. But somehow I can' find it anymore ? Where is it hidden ?
  14. General Yuzuru chat

    It looks great ! (Iwas talking about the manga )
  15. Team Russia

    Well, whether yuna was "robbed" or not is not even the question here. Skaters are not responsible for their scores - the judges are.
