    Why all of the mid-routine costume changes?

    I loved Poirier's costume reveal in the 17/18 SD. Gotta love a guy who will, in consecutive years, go full Sgt. Pepper, 70s pornstache, and awesome sleeve reveal.

    Dancing with the Stars Season 28

    I could tell he was going to be eliminated this week, since Tom almost smirked before reading the results (compared to the frown of the last few weeks) IMO, James, Ally and Hannah are the top 3, with Kel just a head of Lauren. I found Ally overscored in that second dance- it seemed like just a...

    Dancing with the Stars Season 28

    Okay, can Joey become a permanent judge? He can replace Carrie-Ann or Bruno... First round: I have to say, Ally is a great dancer, but I think the judges overdo it quite a bit with heaping the praise on her. Also, they REALLY slowed down Wannabe. Though Sasha's reaction to Emma Bunton saying...

    The Pointless and Petty Annoyances Thread

    Haha then in Australia, don't stand on the right! I think of it like traffic - the left lane (in 95% of countries) is for passing. Don't be a jerk and block it. There's also the nincompoops who like to stand in the middle, with their elbows out, blocking everybody.

    The Pointless and Petty Annoyances Thread

    Something that I've been experiencing a lot of lately - people who stand on the left side of an escalator. NO! The right side is for just standing, the left side is for people who walk up/down the escalator. I was walking up the left side of an escalator today and politely said "excuse me" to a...

    Dancing with the Stars Season 28

    So the last few weeks I've noticed that right before reading the results, Tom has pursed his lips a bit in disappointment, which has made it easy for me to tell that Sean is safe, even before the results are read. IMO the best dance last night was Ally. James was fantastic too, but Ally stole...

    Dancing with the Stars Season 28

    I like how they structured the dance off this year - the pairings chosen beforehand, and knowing the song, compared to other years where one team picks their opponent, and their opponent picks the style. I don't like that one team is right in front of the judges the whole time, the other...

    The annual Costumes thread 2019-2020

    Love that Papadakis/Cizeron went there with their RD costumes, though I wish his sweatband was the turquoise colour of her bodysuit. The black blends into the hair too much.

    Dancing with the Stars Season 28

    Another week with Sean safe. Yuck! Theories are that so few people are voting (viewership is really down) that Sean's votes are comparatively high to others. Of the two in the bottom, I think the right person stayed. I really like Pasha (and so does Len), and I think that if the show comes...

    The annual Costumes thread 2019-2020

    Likes: KMT's SP dress (gorgeous royal blue) Piper's FD dress, but I don't like Paul's FD costume. The neck to ankle beigy colour paired with black skates just doesn't work for me. Stepanova and Bukin's RD costumes I know many people don't like the dress reveal costumes, but I like Scherbakova's...

    2019-20 Canadian Men news & updates

    It'll come down to whoever skates cleaner at Canadians, and that's so exciting. If both skate cleanly, the edge goes to Keegan for his skating skills and spins. I hope Keegan keeps working on his quad lutz, and that Nam puts another quad in his FP too. In other news, I absolutely loved Nam's...

    2019-20 Canadian Men news & updates

    Well Nam just put Keegan on notice. Fantastic free program and a well-deserved 178.69 points. If not for singling the toe after his triple axel, he would have beaten Keegan's personal best score. I think Nam's two programs this year are well suited to him. Though it could still improve, his...

    CBC Revives Battle of the Blades Skating Show!

    I find they add absolutely nothing to the show, other than their names. I also find that in public speaking, they both (mainly her) come across a bit fake. I think that Meagan was the absolute best judge of the season, hands down. To me, there's no contest who should win. Sheldon is by far the...

    CBC Revives Battle of the Blades Skating Show!

    Unfortunately being married doesn't always mean anything... I thought Kurt and Sonia split a couple years ago, as did Katia and Ilia. Things could have happened before she got with David... In any case it's all speculation. While I don't agree with a 6.0, IMO it was clear that they deserved to...
