I just realised that I haven't talked about figure skating in ages. But have no fear for I am still watching it! I just haven't been feeling fannish about it, mostly I watch the Japanese team, and the Swiss guy (HAHAHA), and some Joubert.

For some reason Takashi's programs haven't been connecting with me this season, which makes me so very sad. Look, we all have our own favourite, OK. Dasiuke Takahashi is mine. I really want to connect with his programs, but for whatever reason, while I can appreciate the technique and artistry, I'm just not getting the emotional connection.

*SIGHS*

On the other hand - OMFG! FEMALE SKATERS ARE AWESOME! *___*

ETA: Also, Johnny Weir as the Mad Hatter is fucking perfection.

ETA 2: Gods, as much as I feel bad for Daisuke, talk about guilt from Kozuka. Poor boy.

I agree about Daisuke's programs. They're good, but they just don't hit me emotionally the way some of his programs in the past have. Though, his LP at Japanese Nationals was very good, and came quite close.

That collision between Daisuke and Kozuka at the GPF was insane! I really hope Daisuke is recovered from it now. =\

Female skaters this season are awesome? Really? I tried watching them at the beginning of the GP, but they were so boring, I just stopped and haven't started again since.

True! The LP at the Japanese Nationals came really close, but it just didn't do it for me, which made so very sad. It is like, he has all the technique, but somehow they took out the fun and the raw emotion that he can convey on ice. And I don't know how this happened or why.

(The thing with Daisuke is that the man can convey INTENSITY and SEX APPEAL, and PLAYFULNESS on the ice, and somehow, this season, he has the technique, but somehow have lost the INTENSITY and all the other emotions, and this is making me kind of grouchy.)

Gods - I was like NOOOOOO! And then the competition, with the scores and such, and Kozuka's almost crying, and Daisuke being so classy and refusing to blame anyone but himself, and just man, he is one classy act to follow. Unlike, say *KOFFSPATRICKCHANKOFFS*. I just really admire him as a skater and as a person. And I hope he will recover properly.

I admit I have been watching the ice shows for the female skaters as opposed to their competition programs. Those, well, those have been rather lackluster.

I think it's just the music for his programs? The SP is fun, but it doesn't have much depth to it, and the LP is also good, but there really isn't an emotional climax... I'm not sure. Maybe he also hadn't had enough time to practice yet. I remember in the beginning of last season, a lot of people didn't like La Strada, but by the end they were saying that it was a masterpiece.

Oh my god, Patrick Chan. He seems unbeatable right now, but if he wins Worlds I think I'll cry. Why does everything come so easy for him, and why do the judges love him so?? I'll admit, his 2 quad LP at Canadian Nationals was impressive, but how was he winning GP competitions with 4 falls!? That's just not right at all.
