Has there ever been a Lord of the Rink banner?

Someone ever make a "Lord of the Rink" trailer using voiceovers from the actual movie trailer?

Now I am starting to get horrible images of a skater skating Frodo or Pippin in a pair of skates covered by furry covers...

Uh, Javi had to dress up as a Yeti Crab, so someone could borrow those boot covers?

It seems I missed the discussion about what plushies to throw where and sewing (giant) Nessies on the exact day I was working on the costume for my LGC Pooh :tumblr_inline_mqt4grU8ua1qz4rgp:

I am also now tempted to try to sew sakura plushies, nevermind that I wouldn't have the space to bring them to Helsinki.

 

The Lord of The Rink idea is A+, can we make that happen as a banner?

Seriously, this season feels weird to me.. Last season, I was so focused every competition,  tes, pcs,  bv,  consistency, SB, PB etc..

But this season, I feel some emotional distance about competition. maybe too long time since serious competition and post Olympic emptiness.

the biggest difference is maybe yuzu's attitude about competition. Still, I have really unfamiliar feeling that he rarely show his eagerness to win. ("絶対勝ちたい") of course, word record, too.

I always have thought his willing to win a.k.a competitive spirit is his biggest weapon. At the same time, I totally understand his feeling. though.

others (chen, uno, boyang and other young guns to 2020 Olys game) are new start stance for another 4 years. they experiment  their ability in new scoring system . And they will have to upgrade their technical bv (more various quads, success rate)+ pcs.

but yuzuru... his motivation 4A and his tribute to his idol skaters.  Through various interviews, I think yuzu knows this skating world much like no one else. Maybe he predicts young skaters will surpass him with high bv . If not, he realize he always can't win..umm I don't know . maybe too many thinks.  I really hope his calm mind set leads good performances and no -regret season for fanyu. I always think  "You have to accept that you can't have everything."  myself.  Anyway can't wait for ACI! I 'm curious about his sp which was revealed 5 seconds...

I almost imagine first pancake though:acceptable:

 

 

The way Yuzu seems to be thinking now reminds me of when I finished my university entrance exam getting out of high school. To get into the course at my desired university,  and also because I'm just a really competitive person, I tried to be at the top of all my courses at high school. When I got the offer, I felt a huge sense achievement, and immediately thought I have no pressure to be top now, as a university degree is the same regardless of whether you are top of the class or tenth in the class, so I can chill and enjoy things I didn't have time before. But that zen mode lasted only like 1 month of starting the semester 0:)  the moment exams began the " I must be top" instinct immediately took over despite  the logical me keeps saying "just chill, it doesn't matter any more" .  

 

So I highly doubt Yuzu can keep his urge to always win or break records down for long after season starts, despite what he says now. Not to say I don't think in reality he will feel any less pressure than before. The biggest pressure will probably still be from himself to maintain his pride as 2X Olympic champion.

 

The fact he is learning the 4A ( and hinting the Quint too) suggests to me he does not predict nor wishes for the younger generation to surpass him, not even in BV, or at least TES. Sure in the far future a great skater that may surpass him could emerge. But for the current young generation he is competing against, he isn't going to be easily acceptive of that happening. I think in the post-Olympic conference a journalist asked him whether the younger skaters  ( I think he was referring to Shoma) tried jumping harder quads at the Olympic to try surpass him or something like that. and Yuzu's response was along the lines of "I don't think he was trying to surpass me, but just trying to get closer" (I take this to be his nice way of saying "Surpass me? no way, don't even think about it" :dozey:.

Just taking everything he's said, in all the interviews and at CiONTU etc,  about his attitude towards skating since his injury and Olympic victory, does anyone else feel, as I do, that it's like Yuzu is feeling reborn? Or that his skating is reborn? Something like that anyway. That's the impression I'm getting. 

There was definitely in CiONTU a sense that Yuzu was taking stock of where he was and how he got there, sort of like taking a deep breath before one goes on.  Yuzu has had three significant crises in his career, the first being the quake, the second the crash in Shanghai and the third the injury of last year.  The injury and the recovery from it resulted in his 2nd OG but the timing and everything else felt to Yuzu like this was a time to put a comma in his career before undertaking the completion of the sentence he'd been writing since he was a mushroom-topped urchin forecasting his first Olympics.  To me the most significant thing he's said recently (and this more than once) is that he feels liberated now, so much that his intent is to skate what he wants and not what is absolutely needed for victory.  The 4A is actually more symbolic of what I think his real intent is, which is to show the skating world what TRUE figure-skating involves.  In that sense Yuzu is now a man on a mission and exactly where that mission is intended to lead us and the rest of the world he's not revealing (or perhaps he's not even quite sure himself so he is also engaging in a mission of exploration).  Whether or not he is the GOAT is not for him an issue (if it's ever been?).  The issue for him is to skate a program that is more than clean, a program that ascends to the top of skating's Mount Everest and plants his flag there and says to the world, "Here I am.  I've shown you the way.  Now get up here and join me."

Okay, I am really happy I joined PlanetHanyu community.

But I suspect, there is something REALLY wrong with me since joining. Eagerly reading new posts while at work... thinking about giant Loch Ness Plushies...

And now, going home from work, by bus, I was kind of exhausted and as I was falling asleep, I CLEARLY saw the guy standing next to me dressed in SEIMEI outfit... 

 

Diagnosis - too much Yuzu? Could there even be such a thing? :13877886:

My God, it is contagious!

 

I guess the final syndrome is the SEIMEI hallucination?

 

 

Uh, and since today is 14 September, may I remind you that we are going to die in 7 days time, just like in The Ring?
