  1. This is the first Shostakovich symphony I have ever listened to (and the first Shostakovich piece in which he is more musically explorative which I get). I mean, I am already familiar with his more light-hearted works (eg. Tea for Two, the Jazz Suite, Gadfly), but this is the first *serious* Shostakovich work that I truly enjoy ...and who knows, you might end up enjoying this too! PS: it absolutely doesn't hurt that the conductor* looked like Shostakovich ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ (HE'S BACK ALIVE!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ ...but that's not just it! The concertmaster looked somewhat like Mahler, one of the flutists looked like Debussy, and to top it all one of the bassoonists looked like Timothee Chalamet(!!!) โ€” in short, what a star-studded orchestra! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ) *PPS: for the record, he's Klaus Mรคkelรค, Finnish conductor and cellist โ€” it's only a matter of time until I crush real hard on him ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ)
  2. Are there that many people in Japan who genuinely love Yuzu in that costume??? ....or is this just a case of any kind of publicity=good publicity??? (...so that even when most Yuzu fans in Japan don't like it Lotte keeps releasing this clear file with that photo because it would rake in a nice rate of engagement??) Seems to be actually the case ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚โ€” maybe it's the green shade of the green screen that's usually used in movie industry Pretty handy if I must say so myself! (...and you just have to give credit to this particular team of Lotte Ad this once!)
  3. I am honestly split on this โ€” on one hand I want to see his fashion sense improve but on the other hand as someone whose fashion sense also evolved ever soooo slowly I definitely sympathize with him (ie. just letting him be unbothered by mere trifles such as fashion ๐Ÿ˜‚, especially when he already has so much things to fuss about, from figure skating to study to earphones ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…) ...also think of what he'd unleash on us when he eventually cares about fashion โ€” that would be the death of us all!
  4. ahsgshdgsjshskdjdh this brat.... I know he's an earphone nerd but I didn't think his nerdiness is going that far ... The more you know!
  5. I first saw about the news about Laurine someplace else โ€” that is pretty wild O_o (...just where did she get them from to begin with??? NO REALLY, WHERE??? (...AND I DON'T THINK COKE IS LIKE, LEGAL IN FRANCE?? (Or in Italy for that matter??) O_o o_O) ). I am more inclined to think that she might have got it in a party situation for now, I am not sure she would really have gone through all the hassle to get some coke to just use it as a stimulant, especially when there are other more accessible choice of stimulants (...which might be legal for use for most people, but not necessarily for athletes).
  6. ...oh dear , so sorry to hear about your loss, and as for your loved one's illness โ€” swift recovery for them ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ Stay strong
  7. But SFS has been drawing Yuzu fanarts right from the start, would you really call that cottoning though? Either way I definitely enjoy it whenever a Yuzu fan art is drawn in a positive, complimentary way towards him ...as opposed to, you know, a certain *mangaka* who drew Yuzu in a way that, in some context, turned out to be less than sincere and unflattering to him ๐Ÿ˜’
  8. ....so I just came back home from watching Star Wars Episode IX (despite lots of unfavorable fan reviews ) โ€” I must say I am glad that I decided to go watch it (...worth every penny!)
  9. Hiya folks, I don't know if this has been posted on the Planet already but in case you haven't found out, Yuzu climbed the ESPN World Fame 100 chart (from 70 in last year to 64 this year) http://www.espn.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/26113613/espn-world-fame-100-2019 There wasn't anything new written in the description though , but hey, our boy climbed up the list! Anyhow, merry (belated) Christmas and happy holidays, have a safe and festive holiday season everyone
  10. [admin edit: no ad hominem attacks] ...why can't those ppl just retire from meddling in the FS affairs and be done with it... ๐Ÿ˜’
  11. If I were Deniss I would snatch every chance to sneak myself to Japan as well ๐Ÿ˜œ
  12. About Rika's FS costume color, it's a color that used to be only available for those who were allowed to grace the imperial court (if not reserved for the emperor himself) โ€” so I think Satomi Ito chose that color to further imbue regality into the program, but I am afraid that didn't quite translate to the international audience's perception ๐Ÿ˜ซ (...I mean, my own initial reaction to that dress was "...what's with that mossy color??". The dress design is gorgeous otherwise, it's just the color... ._. ) https://irocore.com/aoshirotsurubami/ (explanation about the color โ€” also I'd be forever grateful to those who are able to translate the Japanese explanation โ€” the English explanation looks like done by google translate ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ซ)
  13. I only caught up with the men's SP (well, just Yuzu's and some other skaters really ). I don't know if it's just me (watching after knowing the result) or if it is really due to the jump order swap, but Otoรฑal feels more relaxed now? The 3A was a bit heavy at the landing though , though ofc if compared with other skaters it still looked as smooth as ever. Shoma did well, glad that he could get back in shape in time. Good to know he settled with Stephane from 2020 onwards. Shun showed a stellar performance too, I am just delighted with it (though the judges were sure strict with his combo grading, huh? :รž) Dai... well if he wants to skate at ice shows he could absolutely be my guess, otherwise...
  14. ....when I talked about Russian judges' *doping* in another thread I certainly didn't mean that they actually *doped* (in this case drinking), and I certainly didn't think that the one who did it wasn't Russian....
  15. When I saw these gifs of Yuzu from Domo kun camera during NHK Trophy, it only dawned on me now that, maybe... Yuzu was checking for a camera inside Domo-kun's mouth during the gala??? I mean ofc the vore option is still on the table ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚...
  16. I mean, true, Goethe was an all-around polymath, not just a poet and playwright but also researcher (...not just in color theory but also if I am not mistaken botany, mineralogy, meteorology, to name a few), and noted aesthete this one should be pretty obvious I reckon ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ but it wasn't like he was especially notable for his attention to personal sartorial presentation* ? ...or maybe that's why the magazine has his name โ€” it's intended for men who pursue lofty ideals in many fields, in order to cultivate themselves to be the multifaceted man, just like the way Goethe did all his life? *Though I guess it's safe to say that he paid way more attention to personal sartorial presentation and/or hygiene than, say... Beethoven...
  17. I found out the word "budgie smuggler" from OzzyMan reviews on youtube , sometimes he has celebrity interview videos in which he asks the celebrity about Australian slangs, it's always amusing to see the celebs' faces when they find out what it means
  18. ...well Shoma attempted 4Lo as the opening jump for his Olys FS Turandot? (The one he fell on). I don't know if he ever landed one previously (guess he did โ€” well as others have commented he did).
  19. LORD HELP US ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!! *slightly OT*
  20. Maybe they meant "old-fashioned way" instead of being physically old...? Which might really mean they were that ignorant and the *propaganda* has already set in even if only the initial stage or... just plain misguided right from the start. lord help us all from this propaganda creeping in... btw if they meant "old-fashioned" then it would actually be rather sad, because Ted (despite his recent shortcomings like praising the ladies' quads or promoting the ISU awards) is still cognizant enough of the importance of deep knee bends, otherwise he wouldn't gush on Shun Sato's deep knee bend during JGPF.
  21. This is soooooo icky โ€” I wish the girl and her family safety ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™, and I hope they can pursue justice for her case, especially legally.
  22. I don't think his accuracy on Nathan's jump measurement was due to his measurement method, but rather from the availability of the footage. If you want to measure distance as well you need to have the skater recorded completely sideways by the camera. The key to computer vision measurements is to get a well-recorded input image, otherwise no matter the accuracy is purported to be, if the input is shoddy then the measurement result will be shoddy as well. I am still more skeptical on this framerate measurement method rather than the one used by Ice Scope or even the one performlive use โ€” can you actually tell me how it is like? Anyhow I don't recommend a GoPro for this kind of measurement โ€” the lens is usually ultra wide it might warp the image, especially near the frames.
  23. Hey this season for Yuzu is the season of curse-breaking, might as well break that one too this season, no? ;รž
  24. Hello 911 I'd like to report murder.... Yes, yes, someone got burned so darned hard...so charred..... ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘€
