This and That



The diva has spoken!  She can spew PR bullshit with the best of them.

Gym Dog Practice Update

Yuka Sato on the Manley Woman Skatecast.

In case you haven't heard, Laura Lepisto is out of worlds.  This isn't much of a shock.  She has been MIA all season due to an achilles tendon issue and now injured her back.

Yu-Na Kim is back in the spotlight again.  It seems she kept herself a bit hidden while she trained for Worlds, but is now back in commercials and ready to be the darling of Korea again.  Here is the making of another one of her commercials---they're dressed her up as a young school girl.  Questionable.




The Crimson Tide's Intro Video


Kings On Ice  (A Tribute to the Fugmaster, Alexei Mishin)

"Okay,could King Tut's LP music possibly suck worse?  It is bad, even by Mishin standards.  She has so much potential, she needs to go to Tarasova.  How can she do a beautiful triple axel at 12 and now have a triple salchow that looks like a seizure?!"  Suzanne Bonaly on Mishin's current top pupil

  2. Liza to Tarasova would fill my heart with joy. GO, GIRL, ESCAPE FROM MISHIN.

  3. So miss val, I know you read here. You kept a non contributing athlete on scholarship for 4 years when you could have given a scholarship to someone who could contribute. Now your team sucks. How did that scholarship to a non contributor work out for you?

  4. I kind of feel sorry for Mishin. He had to sit through that.

  5. "they're dressed her up as a young school girl. Questionable"

    Because when she recorded that LG commercial, she was 16. But that making film is released recently. :)

  6. I find the young school girl thing a bit creepy, unless they're just an obvious whore like Britney Spears. Way to memorize all of her commercials...props.

  7. AJ, that Yu-Na commercial is filmed for the Asian market only, right? They may not associate school uniforms with whoreship there.

    Have you ever seen this Japanese commercial?

    I believe the Asian schoolgirl slut meme in Asian is even more prominent than the Catholic one in America.

  9. There's something that draws me into Johnny's skating, even when he's an obviously out of shape mess.

    Unfortunately, Ms Weir's enlarged ass was distracting me from whatever that something is.

  10. In Korea the school girl uniform has more to do with youth and remembering a time of one's life where one was free to do what one chose to than sexual promiscuity. -A Korean reader ;)

  12. anyone else getting serious sailor moon flashbacks with the school girl uniform?

  13. The footage where Yuna is in her high school uniform was a part of actual commercial that was aired four years ago when she was indeed a high school student. They seemed to put together old footages of her to come up with a new commercial because they didn't want to bother Yuna so close to worlds.

  14. God i actually remember that fabric softener commercial from 3/4 years ago,i'm such an obsesses fan.

  15. As much as everyone may want Liza with Tarasova. I don't see that happening. Tarasova is very good friends with Adelina's coach and has worked with Adelina for years. Apparently she adores Adelina. It would be like Lori deciding to work with Tara.

  16. Ha, the Mishin show was at the rink where I skate in St Petersburg! I saw the guys warm up earlier that day and I reckon that was better than the show itself... Seriously gaudy stuff even by Russian standards.

  17. I actually think that for Liza would be very difficult to change the couch before winning some serious senior title - she looks like a poor relative in compare with Sotnikova and I'm not sure if her sponsors would stick with her without Mishin.

  18. Hahahaha, guys, in South Korea and Japan, all students wear uniforms. It's not a fetish thing (except to Western audiences, for whom the commercial is not intended) -- Yuna is just trying to portray a student! :)

  19. Yuna's agent announced today that she will host an ice show in Korea from May 6th to 8th. They said she will perform to Gisele and a new gala program which she is working on.

  20. OMG what does Tarasova know about jumps or guiding a girl through puberty so that she keeps her jumps? Get real people? Are you all insane. You want to send her to Tarasova like music and chorep mean more than jumps? OMG sometimes the people here are totally insane and music obsessed like that is the number one in skating. Weird? Tarasova? really? I am just in shcok over people saying Tuktamisheva should be sent to a coach who knows nothing about jumps! MEMO Yagudin was trained by Mishin and was past growing stages went he went to tarasova- he didn't go to tarasova for jumps? OMG people want to destroy Tuk.
