Men's short program drive-by

Yevgeny Plushenko: Still rocks like a rocking thing. Still needs a damn haircut.

Daisuke Takahashi: Gauntlet thrown DOWN. (Also, still hot. Difference between 19 and 23 making me feel like slightly less of a dirty old broad about that.)

Japanese Guys As A Group: BRINGING IT.

Evan Lysacek: Poster boy for benefits of WORKING YOUR ASS OFF. Also, YAY LOCAL BOY YAY.

Johnny Weir: Tassel, schmassel. Suddenly there is discipline! And he wears it well.

Everyone's Costume Sense: Missed flight to Vancouver.

Quads What Quads: Bring on the backlash, boys! Somebody's gotta stand up for sanity.

Me: Filled with glee at three guys practically tied. Bring on the finals!

LOL..totally agree with that! What was with the guy in the black and hot pink corseted outfit?

Yikes!

*snickers* Maybe the new batch on Project Runway designed their outfits. ;-)

Maybe the early eliminees?

The 'beverly hillbilly' and the drunken Greek sailor were certainly eyeopeners.

But Johnny Weir has too much talent to waste on all the costuming distractions and mannerisms. He annoys me.

I don't really mind, honestly. Possibly because I'm too busy being far more annoyed by the constant harping on the "controversy" than by the stylistic choices themselves. *shrug*

Anyway, so long as Toller Cranston lives in anyone's memory, he's going to look restrained by comparison.

I felt bad for Jeremy Abbott, but he's young enough, he's got lots of time ahead of him.

I kinda liked the black costume with the bones on it. It provided a cool visual effect during the spins. And Evan looked very long, lean, and elegant in his black firebird costume.

Agreed on both points. I think they were the only exceptions.

I started the evening asking who had attacked Takahashi with both a Bedazzler and a weed whacker, and it mostly went downhill from there.

>"Still needs a damn haircut."

Is it me, or did a lot of them look like anime heroes? With the shocks of hair and pretend-real-clothes costumes?

There were anime heroes AND guys suffering from sparkly vampire syndrome.

And a couple who were both at the same time!

I felt like Johnny Weir got robbed on points, but I don't really understand the new scoring system.

I'm convinced nobody does. And that Rudy the Fare Chicken is involved somewhere.

I think the ISU decided it was impossible to actually eliminate/reduce bias, so instead they made the entire system too incomprehensible to allow for citing any evidence.

"Everyone's Costume Sense: Missed flight to Vancouver."

I've said it before, and I'll say it every time I watch figure skating: Why don't they just wear team uniforms? That would limit the screamingly bad taste and the expense. Mind you, the colours of many team uniforms make me shudder, but at least the uniforms don't have sequins or frills.

Hrm. You know, the reason I hesitate to agree is probably another mark in the idea's favor: the right costume, when there's unity with choreography, music choice, and performance, is an invaluable enhancement.

But maybe they shouldn't be paying for that. Maybe it should be saved for exhibition.

I'd settle for everybody being required to get their costumes from whoever designs Torville & Dean's costumes.
