    I'll say this now, before the actual competitions start.

    Dear Daisuke fans, ubers, etc.
    If you go to an event where Daisuke is at PLEASE take lots of pictures (good ones!), take LOTS of video footage of him everywhere you see him. That includes: Practices, Warm-ups, Exhibition practices, Gala practices, everything! I'm sorry if I come off as greedy, but I for one, REALLY get a kick out of seeing Daisuke outside of actually performing. Especially at gala practices. It's fun seeing who he interacts with and playing around.

    Thanks, Jiazumi
    P.S. (I'm going to copy-pasta this in Javi's thread and D/W's too, so don't report this as spam.)

    Nice page!

    FB is free. Just sign up for an account and use it as a portal for supporting your skaters. There is no obligation to be the host of some sort of huge public presentation with pictures and updates. FB is a convenient platform for people to share.

    Funny excerpt from the Japanese fan book "Cutting Edge 2013"
    http://yoko71.tumblr.com/post/609334...g-edge-q-you-2

    Daisuke Takahashi and Akiko Suzuki

    Q: You 2 are so into skating. How about you two pair up for ice dancing for Pyongyang?

    A: We’ve been told that before.

    D: We’d only be able to dance to certain types of music.

    A: Yeah only hot Latin kinds.

    D: Definitely not lyrical kinds!

    A: We’ll be done as soon as they assign waltz for SD.

    D: We’d be like “Waltz? Oh well, bye!” (laughs) But seriously, the more I look into ice dancing, the more I realize it is not for me. I’d never be able to consider trying to go to the Olympics even as a joke! I might as a hobby, though.

    A: Maybe we can aim for the masters competition?

    D: Oh, masters might be okay, perhaps.

    Q: Mao and Takahiko are taking dance lessons as well. You can all try out to get qualified in ice dance.

    A: Okay. Mao-Taka will be our immediate rivals! (laughs)

    D: We’ll get Kanako-Nobunari to do it, too!

    Q: Whoa! We’re going to have a Japanese ice dancing golden ara!

    A: Maybe TV crew will come just for ice dancing! (laughs) But really, I’d love to do ice dancing.

    D: Me, too!

    A: It’ll be fun. We’ll do something really, really hot and Latin. So hot the audience would get a heartburn. (laughs)

    D: It’ll be like a reunion for the Vancouver and Sochi classes. Yeah, we can dance at the reunion! But none of these three pairs would be a very cooperative pair!

    A: Each one will be totally self-indulgent on his/her own. Twizzle will never synch. He/she would start twizzling faster as he/she gets in the mood.

    Any Daisuke fans here who are good at graphic design? I have a great idea for a T shirt that I would like to make him for a New/Olympic Year present. But alas, I have no graphic design talent. Anybody want to help me? It could be from both of us.

    Please send your messages of support and good wishes to Daisuke. He does read them, and I am sure he will be happy to know we are always supporting him and sending him our good thoughts, and that we are waiting for him to come back strong and healthy!

    Thank you, Sylvia! The men's event was a bit sad for me because of Dai's injury. It is nice to hear good news.
