I tend to choose difficult fandoms to enjoy. Jpop and Jdrama and now Figure skating. These groups love to stay in its niche despite wondering why their worldwide popularity is limited. Watch ISU try to launch a Cool-FS initiative in 100 years and it'll do literally nothing. :dry:

 

I'm. So. Angry.

 

This sport deserves better.

 

I think this blog post explains pretty well why FS will never be main stream.  I totally agree though that the ISU could do much more to make it easier to access content for potential fans and existing fans.

Poor Hope and Legacy at Worlds2017. First Fuji geo-blocked everything in that competition as they bought the right to stream it on the internet and now SBS seems to be taking down many FS videos including the ones not aired by them.

The performance itself can be seen in other channel or on other platforms, and many of the non-English commentaries can be found in the commentary translation thread, but maybe it's better to transcribe English commentaries as well...

This one’s still on 

 

Since they're deleting videos, I thought I would try an download this one because it's my all-time favorite skate ever. And YouTube won't let me download until I subscribe to YT Premium. Little f**kers. Trying to make money off a video they'd copyright strike in an eyeblink! 

 

Fancams are going to become our only hope at this rate ...

Wow, great article! It hits very good points.

 

Though, yeah, ISU could do much better. I mean, Jpop and Jdrama could never be mainstream either, especially with all the people who refuse to read subtitles (and yet soak up everything from the West or other countries whether they understand or not), but the effort by the j-industry and ISU to make life as a fan even harder is appalling.

Amidst all the heat, if you come across anyone who has mass downloaded videos or who would like to contribute their videos, a group of us have set up a new bilibili channel to avoid copyright strikes and attempt to provide a safe heaven for figure skating videos. We just started, so do contact us at skatingportal@gmail.com if you have sources. 

 

Here's the site http://space.bilibili.com/391446247. I've just subbed a CWW video here, click pink button on right for new interface so the subs will show https://www.bilibili.com/video/av38525782/ 

 

Also, Lorando is trying to rebuild her videos since she had no backups, so if anyone downloaded her eng subs do let her know!

Thought about H&L:  When I was a child. I had kind of a vague wistful ideal about water, greenery,  wind, wide open spaces. I didn’t see H&L until many years later, but when I saw it I thought  “That’s what my dream looks like.”  Not necessarily in the form of Yuzu, but the “sense” of the program My favorite part is at about 2 minutes, when the music swells and it always brings those feelings forward the most strongly.

 

It’s a beautiful program, and I hope more people can see it. Darn, YT better let it stay...it brings people peace!

That is my all time favourite skate by him ever. Period. I was hesitating to download every version of every comentator of H&L WC but since they're playing it this way, I'ma go ahead and do it.
