    Isn't this our second Parapluies de Chambourg of the night?

    Whenever I hear this music, the skater that immediately comes to mind is Divakawa and her SP from '03-'04.

    Tranky and Volo had some really attractive show lifts in their program. They look so gorgeous together.

    Quite inventive from V/T... may it carry over to next year
    Gorgeous death spiral variation in the LP bit.
    And they are beautiful. Beautiful costumes, too.

    Dai is such a generous performer. He lets us all in on his emotions and skates with such passion and enjoyment. Love him.

    In the name of everything that is holy, Daisuke, please go back to that edgy, experimental style of yours. Do not settle next year for watered- down hand- wringing. THIS is incredibly good.

    They are the World Champs this year. They used to be parts of 2 different pairs, and have been together for only 3 years.

    Wheeeee! That's what I call a finale. Loved dueling Dennis and Daisuke. Loved the big rush of ladies and the men spinning their brains out. Lucky Japanese fans to be there for this gala. So glad that the ISU broadcast it for everyone.

    Well, thanks to Megan D. and Eric R., I purchased the Artists Against Bullying cover of Cyndi Lauper's True Colors .

    The original was a huge hit when I was in HS, but I was never a fan of that song as it was way too mainstream for my taste .

    That dislike blossomed into a burning hatred when Atlanta's gagtrocious Adult "Lite" Rock (aka Faux and/or Shitty Poseur Rawk) station put it on heavy rotation - and kept it there -- for FIF-TEEN FCUKIN' YEARS .

    I'm not sure which song irritates me more -- True Colors by Cyndi Lauper, or Africa by Toto .

    I don't think Max wanted it to be over...he was meeting & greeting the fans by the boards until the last second.

    What a great Gala! All of the skaters were just wonderful! Sometimes Galas can be quite boring with phoned in performances by the skaters,
    but not here. Every single skater put their heart and soul into their performance. Loved it!

    Max/Tat oozed sexy charm and then came Dai. I needed a cigarette after those two performances (and I don't smoke).

    Catching up with the Gala today. Max's smile was so bright! He looked so happy to be there.

    I thought the US team number was much cuter and more fun than the Japan team number.

    I enjoyed both the Japanese and US team number; but, most of all, I loved how supportive the audience was of everyone and every team there.

    Oh, and I also loved when Chris Reed swung Mao around--that was cute to watch!
