Happy Friday everyone :embSwan:

 

 

Well, if Kaori Sakamoto's scalping judges is the new standard of "skating close to the boards", then it must be said this is not a "fake news". But then nobody but her is "skating close to the boards". (Must I say I love her audacity and humour?)

How funny antis have to resort to easily debunkable fake news, showing by this how superior Yuzuru Hanyu's skating is in every aspect.

An involuntary, simplified version of reductio ad absurdum somehow.

I actually wonder, who is closer to the boards: Panel slayer Kaori or Yuzu, who is literally disappearing behind the boards during TenChi step sequence:

I had never seen this before. Fun to watch team Japan cheer for Yuzuru in 2015 WTT. 

 

 

Seeing this again reminds of just why POTO is my favorite Yuzu program and his 2nd POTO costume my favorite Yuzu costume.  If he decides to recycle a program for Beijing I would strongly recommend this, although I think he might consider my 2nd favorite Yuzu program, Masquerade, as an alternative.  Either way, both would work as the program in which he could introduce Nessie to the world.

Aaah - takes me back to my favourite WTT team gala performance - team Japan naturally, and the Yoshida brothers.

I saw this one some days ago. At first I really liked it, then I realized it was used to promote that cursed event in Osaka, so I stopped:deadinside:

For some reason I got creative this weekend and a little sad at the same time.

 

 

Thinking of how frustrating it is for us to see in which direction figure skating is heading...

I cannot even imagine how painful it must be for Yuzu, who loves this sport so much.

 

I still hope, that figure skating will take a sharp turn last minute and bloom again some time in the future :tumblr_inline_ncmifaymmi1rpglid:

 

That being said, I wish you a nice and peaceful weekend everyone :grouphug:

All I'm saying is, no matter how complimentary the CBC crew try to be about Yuzu, there's always someone waiting to jump on the things they get wrong.

My view about Carol and Kurt (whose commentary I usually really like, the worse thing I remember about it is Kurt's criticism of Yuzuru's Requiem costume - I'm confident he would never had said that if he'd known what the costume represented) is that they very obviously adore Yuzuru's skating, they see his unique talent in all its layers. Sometimes I think their humour or how they word their admiration just doesn't cross cultural or nation boundaries that well, and that if we all had the same sense of humour or language then these misunderstandings wouldn't happen ..... but then what kind of world would that be if we were all the same, if we were all culturally and linguistically homogenous? What we can do is try to keep open communication with each other, try not to judge too quickly or too harshly, and listen to and believe explanations as given in good faith. (something people on twitter find very hard to do it seems!!) What binds us together is a love of beautiful figure skating and the way it can move us.  We have more in common than that which divides us! (a quote by the late Jo Cox a UK MP).

Oh I love your poem @Henni147 :softYuzu:

This is quite an emotional depiction of what this Osaka resident is feeling about the WTT coming to the city.  Extremely worried and having nightmares about Yuzu competing at WTT.   This person is a manga illustrator - and reveals quite a complex and nightmarish depiction of the upcoming event.  Will try to translate later - it's quite long!  It is a depiction of a dream (nightmare).  Starts with the scene of a carp fish peaking in from another dimension (clearly covid virus infected side) and the carp on this side wondering what is going on.  Then goes on to remember the past performances by Yuzu - and how Osaka has been the devil's abode for him, e.g., NHK 2017.  The man in track uniform is the symbol of Osaka (recalling the runner from 1967 Olympics) who is asking Yuzu to come to Osaka and they both end up dancing with mambo.  Yuzu asks why are we dancing the mambo?  In Japanese short-hand, the medical emergency being called on Osaka and Tokyo is being nicknamed "Manbo".  Hence, this is turning into Dance Macabre...
