    "Oh gawd that's a tough one to define, better ask christopher dean !!"
    It stems from me and sharps watching old documentary about T&D where we pee'd ourselves laughing at the following quote from Chris, which he said, erm, very dramatically "....and suddenly, we found ourselves in this...hole...this huge, big VOID !! We could do anything we wanted to, our only limits were our own imagination !! It's like floating free, it's like being in outer space !!"
    "So we use the term "Voidy" to describe anything in skating which is a drama fest ala Dean. You know the sort of thing, angst expressions, hands outstretch, weird programs with weird music, skaters who clearly think they are skating as ar-TEESTES and creating an arty masterpiece...it's all "voidy"

    PS: If non skating wise you are in a void. Then you have either been overcome by the porniness of someone or drunk LOL. Also having a hangover can put you in a void too. Basically a trance, yes?

    It's still so painful to watch

    Does anybody know who Skate Guv and Sharps are? Are they FSUniverse users? When did this historic documentary viewing take place?

    sharps is SHARPIE--the board owner, then and now.

    SkateGuv is a former admin who no longer posts here.

    The viewing took place a long time ago.

    Kurt Browning said it on the air once during commentary. And Dick Button either said it or something else from FSU once--I don't remember that one as well.

    That one still makes me all these years later!

    Less laugh-worthy, but definitely in a void, I love this recent performance by Laetitia Hubert!

    Laetitia Hubert "Black Shoes" at Caesars Tribute II

    She's still doing her own thing (alas, without those huge but inconsistent : triple jumps)!!

    More sensory overload from Holiday on Ice...

    It's the 1970s a time when bright lemon yellow was a considered neutral and the inspiration for the men of the HOI Corps de Balett was Ron Jeremy...

    Holiday on Ice (Blue Division) - In Rhythm Opening Number (1977)
    Once you get over all that glorious yellow and feathers and the too-tight pantsuits and the rather curious music juxtaposition, you'll see a nicely executed choreographic creation from Stephanie Andros.

    ...and something (just a little) more sane for you all, nice solo from Ricky Inglesi at the end of the number:

    Holiday on Ice (Blue Division) - Spectrum Rock (1973)
    Featured skaters: Ricky Inglesi and Mitsuko Funakoshi

    Classic K+O...

    Angelika Krylova + Oleg Ovsiannikov show us that not only do they own Malaguena, but Carmen as well.

    Malaguena (The Art of Russian Skating, 1998)

    Carmen - Nagano Olympics 1998, Free Dance
    Technically a competition piece, but this one is such a great performance.

    One of my favorite Toller performances, Pagliacci, Moscow News Exhibition (1975)

    On this footage there is some commentary from Toller, and at the end, a partial clip from a Canadian show.

    Of course, I love Toller, and Gary Beacom, but we should not forget Robert Wagenhoffer!

    Thank you, Doris!
    I hadn't seen that performance by Robert Wagenhoffer.
    It dates from not too long before his untimely passing.

    sbanet, that performance of Pagliacci you posted was certainly one the first of that iconic program.
    Toller was a specially invited guest at the EX.
