I miss YouTube.
Our netbook has been broken, repair is €75 and they're not even sure if they can repair it. I ordered a new netbook which can be paid off after many months, but that won't arrive before January. I can't afford to fix my broken one before January or February.
It's strange to live without YouTube while I've been so used to it. Stranger is even that I'm getting used to living without it now. Yet I will be so happy to be able to watch YouTube again! Skating is reason number one to have YouTube. I missed most programs from the latest figure skating competitions. I used to watch them on YouTube. I miss watching my old favorite programs.
I never realised how much I used YouTube until now. And how many uploaders have made me happy by sharing their skating files on YouTube.
I'd like to thank everyone who has been sharing programs and links to programs. And Happy Holidays to everyone!
Not to be a jerk, but that clip is actually from 91 NHK (in the 91-92 season)... but it's still a great clip!
Our new netbook arrived sooner than expected yesterday. Internet at home again. Unfortunately some unexpected negative changes at YouTube when I finally logged in there. It seems the new YouTube design won't allow us our freedom anymore. Most of you know all this by now.
I read that making comments for example will become different, making/reading comments while watching a vid will disappear. Sharing opinions is one of the most interesting aspects of YouTube for me. Friends and subscription lists will disappear too from what I understand.
Protests are organised to boycott YouTube. I'm not always in favour of boycotts, but sometimes they are needed. In case you want to join:
The plaza in nearby Arcata, California is plagued by vandals on big holiday events like Halloween. Little skateycat heard about this and wanted to make a public service announcement asking the big kids to play nice on New Year's Eve.

Art on Ice
Monserrat Caballe and Susanna Rahkamo & Petri Kokko -"Hijo de la Luna "
Monserrat Caballe and Denise Biellmann-" Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again "
There are other nice videoclips :
Vivika1982, thank you so much for these links. Especially the Rahkamo/Kokko one. I've been looking for this gala for years. I taped it when Eurosport first aired it. Then when I moved from France back to Holland, I lost many items, including a tape of this gala. :-( Wasn't this the first Art on Ice? If I remember correct this was a new Idea from Oliver Hoener according to British Eurosport commentators. I could be remembering wrong though.
Lady does throw cantilever in exhibition. About 2 mins. and 45 secs.into clip. Also a closeup at the end. I'd like to see one of these done in competition. A lot more interesting than those boring death spirals.
Whoops! My mistake. It wasn't a *throw* cantilever.
Here is a video of 1974 worlds,Jan HOffmann, Christine Errath and other skaters
1970, Sonja Morgenstern, Pakhomova Gorshkov and others:

if you search for "pattinaggio" within this channel you would find a lot very old movies.
