Let's curate a video gallery of :inavoid: :smokin: ice revue and exhibition skating voids.

The parameters are loose - any time any place, from historical to hysterical, from Eva Pawlik to Eman to some unknown yet :smokin: OES.

Selections could be from Ice revues, the cinema, Russian television, or even a particularly voidy program from a local ice show.

As it is show skating, (if possible) good quality picture and sound is desired. Featured skater IDs, show date, and a little bit of background information would be helpful, although not mandatory.

Anyway, Here We Go! - have at it and post some of your favorites. I'll post a few right now to get started, and will soon select some :glamor: voids of times past from the :sekret: Central European figure skating vaults. ;)

First off, big thanks to everyone involved, from the video capturers, posting scavengers - and of course the skaters, choreographers, directors, music arrangers, costumers, etc. who provided the voids in the first place. :encore:

I guess it is almost obligatory to start with a Sonja Henie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonja_Henie) video, being that she was an inspiration to so many skaters past and present. Here is an HD version of a classic, the Finale of Sun Valley Serenade (1941) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZn8uU-FNSw)

One of my all-time favorites is the extremely talented and voidy British skater Belita (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belita). These clips are from the film Suspense (1946) Part 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c04O57jS-E&feature=related) and Part 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDvAFbi-ats&feature=relmfu). Additionally, a very interesting, candid (and cheeky) Belita interview (circa 1970s) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffxll8MqoMI&feature=endscreen)

Enjoy...

Voidy show skating = Toller Cranston for me. Here's his fabulous firebird (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cf_zI9Xo9o) at MSG in 1983. So many more, especially his specials such as The Magic Planets (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58NIk3B31wA&feature=channel&list=UL) and Strawberry Ice (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpbnfL0CKdM). I mean you just can't outvoid that!!! :inavoid: :cheer: :inavoid:

What does voidy mean?

Cheesy? Rare? Forgotten? Tacky? Awful?

Its strictly a message board term. I've never heard a skater say it. It stems from an embarrassing Christopher Dean quote. Pretty funny actually. It has come to represent the Avante-Garde skaters. In my book, the only ones that count. ;)

Anyway, my picks are Allen Schramm, Gary Beacom, and the Duchesnays.

My picks are Allen Schramm...

For those of you who don't know, he is the "villian" in "Strawberry Ice"; and truly terrifying.

No argument from me, in my mind Toller is most definitely the King of Voids. :inavoid:
