Personal Info

  1. Daily Yuzuru Photos thread

    I swear I almost screamed out loud when I saw that first one...GORGEOUS!! And the 2nd one finished me And then there's ALL the other ones we've seen from Sportiva...yeah, I ordered it, I gotta admire anyone who can resist the temptation!!
  2. Yuzuru & Friends with Pooh-san

    I have a new theory about Pooh-san. I think Yuzu REALLY believes Pooh is alive but just acts like he's a plushie so we don't think he's 'crazy' LOL. My evidence is this video. He's standing there watching Javi's skate, paying attention when Javi is jumping but reliving his own free skate during the 'boring' parts (watch from about 1:50 - his own personal sign language!!) Out of nowhere he glances down at Pooh and scratches his/her head as if, 'patience, we're almost done here...' I mean, why would he do that if Pooh was just a plushie?? He's not even 'on camera' like during K&C's, although obviously there are hunderds of eyes on him and there was a camera just a couple feet away, beside him.

    I'm also going to admit to being in the club of 'He's going to stay in competition until 2022, no breaks'. I strongly believe it. Nothing matters as much to him as his skating and since he's only reached '20%' of his goal, there's no way he can retire any time soon. GPF 2018 and Worlds 2020 - can't wait!

    Haha, that's funny, you think you can get a NORMAL LIFE back after that?? If you figure it out, let me know!

    I'm so far behind on this thread, maybe there is a fan cam of Yuzu by the k&c, watching Javi skate? I have to confess, I couldn't watch Javi, I wanted to see how Yuzu was reacting... What I saw was, he was closely watching Javi's jumps but I think when the program got to steps or spins Yuzu's face looked kinda fierce and he was mouthing something, it looked like he was being Coach and giving himself a good 'dress down'! But that's what a good coach has to do at times and he is certainly one of the excellent coaches of Team Yuzu. I love watching him carrying on with himself when he's at practices he seems to always have something to say! Anyway, that's my impression, videos may tell a different story. I am still several sleeps away from recovering from being there so I am not quite in my right mind just now. I have now been to 4 of his last 5 silver medal competitions (only missing 4CC!), and I'm happy to be part of the crowd that ALWAYS showers him with more appreciation and love than anyone else there, even the champion. I don't think Javi got a standing O after his FS at ACI (or not much of one) but Yuzu did. And of course after the medal ceremony everyone stayed there until Yuzu was gone, and every eye was on his every move. And of course Yuzu is aware of all this and has fortunately learned how to live with this as an asset instead of a burden. So while it hurts to see him kuyashi, I would not hesitate to attend ACI or SC if he was competing there next year!

    I'm with you, it's no better in person and I think Scott's costume makes it worse, silver to her gold and the top is like rubber, or stretchy pleather or something...

    How did you pull that off?? What a score!!!
  9. About to board first flight to Montreal! I always feel a little strange flying to a foreign country just to see a sparkly young Japanese man but I get over it pretty quick!
  10. Notte Stellata (The Swan)

    LOOOOOOOOVE this picture, it shouldn't be gorgeous, tugging at the illusion mesh like that. But his HANDS, and all the beautiful fru-fru details at the wrist, and the way the light is shining thru the mesh...and how it fits his torso...UUUUUUUUGGGGHHH

  12. Yuzuru & Friends with Pooh-san

    that's too hilarious, I've never seen him pat Pooh before!

    There are several Lush stores in Montreal but they don't seem to be very close to the arena. I can try to bring some with me to ACI for sampling purposes but will have to put it in a container compliant with carry on luggage rules

    I DID buy it today, I saw they were discontinuing it so I wanted to get some. I've never smelled it but I'm SURE I will love it!

    I'll take ROUGH MASCULINITY please, and thank you iron_klaus Of course @gladi's translations are wonderful and I know nothing about the Japanese language so I have no opinion on which is 'better'
