    Netflix/Prime/Hulu Discoveries

    Yup! I don't speak Yiddish but between understanding German and knowing Yiddish expressions, was getting a lot. This show has GREAT older ladies, some of my favorite scenes. And Grandma's family speaks Yiddish with her, and Hebrew with each other. Also, thank you for "The Lion in your Room"...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu Discoveries

    I loved ”Le Bureau”- will check out the others... There can never be too many great foreign shows. Currently watching- and adoring!- “Shtisel”, an Israeli family saga about an ultra- Orthodox family in Jerusalem. It is on Netflix, and is just amazing, astute and relatable.

    Samokhvalov's interview with Evgenia Tarasova

    Thank you for the link, and yes, you've translated correctly. Also, from that (Russian magazine) interview it also seems clear that Maxim's approach works better for Vladimir, and Evgenia misses Mozer and Mozer's ability to put her in the zone before competitions. However, Max tries.

    U.S. Men 2018-19 season (cont.) - news & updates

    Nathan's LP was foot-perfect, the landings were a thing of beauty, the movements were to the music, he is highly expressive. Give judges a break, people, they got as enthusiastic as we did, it's Nationals.

    From Russia with Love [#31]: Winter to Spring 2019

    It seems that Trankov and FSU are in complete agreement: https://www.sports.ru/figure-skating/1070680594.html Retelling of highlights (not verbatum): Trankov is very happy to return to Rachmaninov, as he considers it T/M's best program. He tried to insist at the beginning of the year that T/M...

    U.S. Ladies [#24]: Starr-Ting Order/Detailed Classification

    I am not comfortable with a coach posting “You know I don’t trust easily, but I trust you”... Once one starts teachings, their insecurities as they relate to any pupil should be strictly private.

    Elizabet Tursynbaeva's Mother - interview re Orser, Eteri, training issues.

    Though Tursynbaeva's parents live in Moscow, they are from Kazakhastan, so in Elizabet's case switching countries was easy.

    Outside of a Dog, a Book is Man's Best Friend (The Book Thread)

    That makes me really want to read it (even more so as an Oberlin grad)

    Outside of a Dog, a Book is Man's Best Friend (The Book Thread)

    I was thinking of reading Groff's "Florida" because it made a few other "best" lists. I don't know her. No good?

    Outside of a Dog, a Book is Man's Best Friend (The Book Thread)

    Love that Obama has a book list. ((Presidents with introspection))) Am reading "Less" by Andrew Sean Greer, that won 2018 Pulitzer's. Can't put it down, as it is so relatable, and observes people with both irony and kindness. The protagonist is a semi-successful gay writer, who, facing a recent...

    From Russia with Love [#30]: If There Are Test Skate Videos, It Must Be Fall 2018

    I have seen plenty of angst on FSU about Gogolev learning quads too early. I've seen the same angst over Nathan Chen. And it is a legitimate concern, even though it would pay off for some skaters. It would be weirder if people just blindly cheered on.

    Evgenia Medvedeva Cheer thread

    I liked the “Slam Bam...” SP, as well. It probably was too soon for Evgenia to be able to act breezy and flirty, all the while dealing with technical adjustments.

    From Russia with Love [#30]: If There Are Test Skate Videos, It Must Be Fall 2018

    When I had pneumonia it hit me like a brick. One day I was hiking, a day later I was curled up in a ball in bed barely able to respond and sleeping for 23 hours. Not buying conspiracy theories at all.

    American Figure Skater Crashes Headfirst Into The Ice, Referee Allows Her To Continue

    That definitely crossed my mind- that the hair bun might have mitigated the impact somewhat... though I did not feel up to re-watching the video to make sure.

    #TeamTrainwreck 14: "I Don't Care. #StillHere"
