  1. Today marks the one-year anniversary of Once’s cancellation. It was quite the birthday present. 🙃

    They said on the broadcast that he hadn't wanted the pressure of ending his career at the Olympics, so he'd said Europeans -- which felt like "home" to him -- would be his final performance. Damn, Nathan! His quads look so freaking CASUAL. How frustrating must it be for the other men, though, to work so hard and put your all into the sport -- and Nathan Chen is out there winning by 60 FREAKING POINTS. I mean, he's clearly the top of the U.S. crop given the current scoring system, but that's a LOT. Apart from the top four or so, it was a cringey splat-fest. Jason is great, but you can't pop two jumping passes and not have a quad. I was really hoping he'd nail the quad.

    Catching up on some of the early ladies free skates I missed last night. Hanna Harrell was intriguing. But I’m totally over skaters throwing their arms over their head on every jump. I know it’s harder, yadda yadda, but I’m over it.

    I never really associated “fun” with Chock/Bates, but that routine was FUN! And that lift was awesome. H/D seem a bit mature to be doing Romeo and Juliet. At least the subject matter forced them to tone down the sex sneers. They’re always so overwrought though. That first bit, yeesh.

    Manta/Johnson aren’t as smooth as the top teams, but that routine sure was fun. A bit late of a comment, but I squee’d at Denney/Frazier using David Cook’s version of “Billie Jean” for the short dance. I’m going to be sorely tested for the foreseeable future at the Hubbell/Donahue tongue baths. ETA: Yikes, HartofDixie, that death glare from Madison!

    I hate H&D. Haaaaaate! That over-the-top sex sneering is not my cup of tea. Unfortunately, that seems to be the chosen presentation in ice dance. Blech. That's part of why I loved the ShibSibs so much -- they COULDN'T do that, so they were like a breath of fresh air to me. U.S. figure skating has had so many Next Big Things that didn't pan out, so we'll see about Alysa. I hope she's able to capitalize on the promise and grow artistically, but I'm not holding my breath. (Nathan Chen is one of the few who actually DID pan out, regardless of how he fared at the Olympics -- I remember the excitement about him at Nationals when he was 10.) I think Mariah Bell is such a lovely skater. Darn that one jump! I think she'd have won if not for that.

    It was obvious that this day was coming, but it's still heart-breaking. So young and so talented.
  9. I thought Leave Me AlURN with included lower-back spikes was hysterical. And yet also sadly too true.

    S16.E07: Carne!

    The second Brandon said he used xanthan gum, I knew he was a goner. Good point about the amount of meat they were given vs. the number of people they had to feed. But still, so many of the dishes just sounded and looked underwhelming. I found it kind of odd the amount of people who used berries with their beef. I don't think of those things as going together at all.

    S07.02: Top of the Class

    I have no idea how they didn't just yank the model off the runway and auf him IMMEDIATELY. That was truly, truly awful. In fact, I think that was one of the most hideous things I've ever seen sent down the PR runway. Ever. EV-ER. Seriously, how was that monstrosity not in the bottom? Evan's was my favorite.

    S16.E06: Roaring Munchies

    It was funny how they showed everybody yelling about the cream boiling over or needing attention. Well, Brother sure was a flash in the pan. Which is fine, I didn't care to see him come back, but I'm surprised Tom let the LCK returnee get knifed so quickly. Happy for Eric to get the win! He must've been an oyster-shucking machine. And then to have time to plate them all? I have to say, I missed where the pumpernickel toast was in his dish -- I couldn't see it when they showed it. Padma having a fringe-off with other guests, LOL.
