Hi,ilica! I'm glad to make your acquaintance. flower

Thank you for saying that about my icon:-) Very Happy

I'm sorry my english is poor.

Words written on the stone mean that “As long as you have a dream and make every effort, It's not far to the dream.”

Short translation of Friends+α by @yoko71 https://twitter.com/yoko71 :



Shizuka: It’s a great time! (then she introduces dai “today, we have this skater who requires no intro……. THIS GUY!”

Dai “Yes my face is ~loud and you would feel like my face is right by you even when I’m not right there. I’d like to continue on this year with this ~loud face. LOLLL”

(then some flashback from last few years of Friends+ )

Shi: “What have changed? Hmm. He’s become a lot stronger, mentally. What hasn’t changed? Hmm. The way he’s always like everyone’s little bro. You know, the way he’s being cute off ice while being totes different on ice.”

Shi: “how was your season so far? You’ve been pacing thru the season as a veteran that you are?”

Dai: “I don’t feel like a veteran this year. Last season, I paced myself, but this year, I’m going all out, esp. since that’s really the only way I could stay competitive with the younger skaters.”

Shi: “I can see that it’s hard work staying competitive in men’s field now.”

Dai: ” yeah, but it brings out the competitor in me for sure! That’s a good thing. A lot of times Japanese men end up warming up at the same time even at shows. Then it becomes like a jump battle. Then I’m like THIS UNCLE ISNT GONNA GET OUTDONE DAMN IT.”

Shi: “Lolll you aren’t old! You can’t call yourself uncle in front of me.”

Dai: “my apology. Well, I look around other sports and see athletes in their primes in their 30’s. So I’m still on my way up, actually! I heard Asian men’s physical peak is at 28. So I’m not there yet.”

Dai monologue “Mentally, I’m the same me as I have been. Sochi getting closer hasn’t changed me.” “Physically, I’m trying my best to condition myself as well as I can try. I try lots of different things, ballet, stretch, etc.”

Shi & Dai: “FS at Nats was very special.”

Dai: “It felt like I was boiling inside. After Yuzuru drew the last spot, I thought I better get the spot right before Yuzu, then I looked at my number and saw I got the 1st spot. I was like Ughhhhh. I really wanted to win. Now that I look back, it worked out okay, tho.”

Shi: I have never seen Takahashi Daisuke finishing with his eyes that wide open.”

Dai: “IKR? I saw on a vid later and was shocked myself!”

Shi: “You looked like you were in trance for a while after the ending. It was awesome.”

Dai: “Usually, I try to communicate and interact with the audience when I skate, but this time, it was all about me and my self on ice.”

(A break - Dai shows off his hipster self.)

Shi impersonates how the aunties were watching thru each jump.

Dai: “I heard screams for all the guys during the 6 min. Sounded like the fans were trying to outdo each other with their cheers.”

Shi: “Cheers at nats are special!”

(Then some skating footage.)

Shi: “What type of music do you get into?”

Dai: “This year’s SP music is difficult to get into. Classic is easier. Blues? I thought it’d be hard but then I totes got into it. I thought I’d hate it after listening to it over and over, but turns out, I loved it more. You know? I don’t really ~understand blues. But I did my own interpretation, and it worked out. So now, I just do my own interpretation no matter what.” “Now that I’m nearing the end of my career, I really wanna nail the music.”

Shi: “So what if you start hating a piece of music as you skate it during the season?”

Dai: “Then I’d change it. I wouldn’t be able to perform it well if I’m not fully in love with it. I know some people questioned this year’s FS music, but I’ve seen Shae Lynn nail it and have loved it.” (Shizuka changed both short and free a month before Oly.)

Shi: “It’s like someone up high gifted me with the pieces right before Oly. It just had to happen.”

Dai: “It seems like Tourandot always happened for you when you are at your turning point.”

Shi: “What do you wanna do at Sochi?”

Dai: “Not sure yet. I def wanna skate to a piece of music I love.”

(Yamako break)

Dai: “I really wanna skate to a music I love. But also, I want to win, so I gotta find something that can get the audience on my side.”

Shi: “Was it good that you got to skate at Sochi already?”

Dai: “yeah it was good. But you know, I never skated at Vancouver before Oly. But the moment I stepped into the venue, I loved it. I loved Sochi, too. It felt soft, and round. And it’s blue. I like blue. I’m thinking about what costume would go well with blue.” “I wonder what the athletes’ village will be like. Vancouver was great. Tourin was not so. It was like a survival.”

Shi: “No elevator, no bath tub, or no shower curtain.”

Dai: “You are quite a survivor, doing well under such a condition!”

Shi: “You’d have retired if Worlds was in Japan and had done well.”

Dai: “Yup. Instead, I did miserably in Moscow, the same place I did miserably in 2005. That got me fired up. I didn’t want it to end like that. I’m having fun, compared to what it was like after Worlds.”

Shi: “What about AFTER Sochi?”

Dai: “No freakin way. What about you, Shi?”

Shi: “Not even possible. LOL.”

Dai: “I started to accept my physical conditions as they are. If I’m having a bad day at training, I just accept it and think about having a better day tomorrow.”

Shi: “you are maturing in a good way, mentally!”

(Puppy break)

Shi: Boys all have got it. It must be hard trying to remain competitive!”

Dai: “Yup it’s hard. Yonkaiten and all.”

Shi: “It was hard adjusting to the new rules that came upon me right before retiring.”

Dai: “Yeah, I’m glad the rule change happened to me before I got too old.”

Shi: “What about Yuzu getting so good so fast?”

Dai: “He is awesome. Always on the offense.”

Shi: It’s just like young Mao moving up the ranks fast when I was competing at the top.”

Shi: “Takeshi had no rival. If he were competing now with all the rivals, he’d be even greater.”

Dai: “I’m where I am because of the younger competitors.” “I don’t think I’d have been able to jump 2 quads in a program if I didn’t have the rivals.”

(Dancer Takahashi)

Dai: “I wonder if I were dancing if I weren’t skating in this era.”

Shi: “yah you would. You get on a chair & dance at karaoke!”

A voice: “How do you dance on a chair? Can you show us here?”

Dai: “No I can’t do that unless I’m drunk.”

Shi: Akko says you act all ~senpai and ~elder at her when you’re drunk.”

Dai: “lolll yah, Ryuju says that too right?”

Shi: When you’re not around, Taka tries.”

Dai: “LOL ~boys.”

Voice: “What do you sing at Karaoke?”

Dai: “Oh I never go to Karaoke (yeah right) but If I were to go, I like Tohoshinki.”

Voice: “What about Shizuka?”

Dai: Hmm, what was it? Oh yeah she sang 桃色片思い. Hehe.”

(evan break)

Dai: “I’m about to be 27. A few years older than you retired.”

Shi: “It’s a good time to be an older athlete now. You get a lot more support.”

Shi: “It wasn’t like that when I was skating. I looked for a job, even worked part time.”

Dai: “I’ve never had a regular job. I feel so sheltered! I want to work a ~regular job at least once! But LOL I probably can’t do that.”

Dai: “I think I’m gonna get fat after retiring. I love fatty food.”

Shi: “I thought I would, but I didn’t. But maybe because I never really lived a stoic athlete’s life.”

Dai’s monologue: “If I’m allowed to go to Oly, I will finally realize this is the end eventually. I wonder what that feels like.”

(Shae lynn break)

Dai: “We are opposite, yet we’re pursuing the same goal. I’m glad I got to see you at the end of your competitive career. You were great.”

Shi: “Is there anything you know you gotta do during the next year? and what about anything you know you can’t do?”

Dai: Yontaiten. I gotta do them. But also I wanna make my spins and steps far more accurate.”

Shi: “You’re pretty accurate.”

Dai: “Niko says not good enuf”

Shi: “He never says anything but not good enuf.”

Dai: “Ballet. I want to continue Ballet after retirement.” “And things I don’t think I can complete in the next year? Hmm…”

Shi: “I know, I know. An eagle!”

Dai: “Of course I can master the eagle in the next year.”

Shi: “Then what about Eagle -> Ina Bauer?”

Dai: “Oh that may not happen. Not Ina Bauer.”

(Break)

Shi: “What do you like the most about skating now?”

Dai: “The feeling when I finish a program in front of the audience. That’s it.”

Sorry but..
Did anyone see youtube video of including PJ kwong's comments about Daisuke's fans?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rS3AtF8F8X0

First of all, I don't remember when Daisuke's fans are so angry like this time.

So PJ attacked Dai's fans in front of tv camera?
She really said his fans booed Patrick at Nice World?
She even said Hanyu's fans told her Dai's fans booed him at nationals?

If she said really like that, she is a liar. that's not true.

Aha, we all know Daisuke is most popular skater in the world but Audience at worlds and nationals were not all Daisuke's fans.
If she saw videos at nationals, she couldn't heard any booing.
How she said like that even she didn't know the truth?
Not cool? ha, her behavior was not good.

She must make a respectful apology for her comments.

Yes fosse she blamed Dai's fans for the booing. I can't believe she said that. That is a lie. Then she had the nerve to say Dai's fans booed Hanyu at JP. How doe she know this, was she there?

At least David (the male commentator) said that the when fans boo it is toward the judges and not a particular skater and that Patrick had been falling and winning and the judges were still putting him first over a clean skater.

I don't know why she said the things she did but it is definitely not good thing to say.

Meh... It's just one more stunt of Canadian media that they are throwing around before the Worlds. To put more pressure on skaters and fans- "Don't even dare to boo if our zamboni guy tops again!" The one who is acting unsportishly here is as Canadian media and PjKwong as its staffer. Nothing new here- same dirty Canadian PR work. Like SLC, Vancouver, just on a smaller scale since it's not Olympics. To be fair I am absolutely not surprised with this C-media stunt. People on youtube told her well enough I think.

Meanwhile, I got an information for a Dai fan who attended his practice rink today in Simsbury, for greetings and giving gifts. At that moment Dai didn't practice any quads or jumps, only footwork seq. Still it was very nice to hear that he is fine and safe there. Very Happy

Hello let's talk. Thank you so much for the info about Dai. He is training in Simbsury which is about a 4 hour drive from where I live,
it drives me nuts that he is in the US and I can't get to see him. lol.

Maybe you are right that PJ is just trying to stir things up before Worlds and she should be ignored.

Thank you to let's talk for the news about Daisuke.

About PJ,
I still don't understand her..just dirty and unfair.
If someone mail to her Patrick's fans booed Daisuke(100% not true), she could just blame Patrick's fans? maybe she doesn't need truth.

I'm not sure if you've already found the translation of the documentary or not.
Dai-chan said his knee still hurts when he practices too much or isn't in good shape physically. When he leaves his knee without care for a few days, it hurts, as well.
http://youtu.be/44TBQj1BTj4?t=8m17s
Please take good good good care of yourself, Dai-chan.....

A short footage of Dai-chan when he left to US. Feb 21.
http://youtu.be/cD0cDjHk8iw?t=3m35s
Cool as always!
Dai-chan is very polite to everyone. Look, he even bowed to the ground attendant.


As for PJ Kwong, it's just Sleep . She proved by herself that she is an unprofessional press who people can't rely on. That's all.

Thanks miyu.

Go! Daisuke
I wish Daisuke and Patrick do their best, especially Patrick.
If he skates like last year's worlds, (surely)executives would be experience same Nice audience's reaction at their home.

Thank you let's talk for the news about Dai and miyu for the video! He is cool indeed!

That is horrible about his knee still hurting. Please, Dai don't force yourself too much...

PJ Kwong ... Rolling Eyes

Jackie Wong has done interesting jumps-only base value comparison -
http://www.examiner.com/article/2013-world-championships-preview-men-base-value-comparison

Actually programs with 3quads and one 3A get only about 4 points more than those with 2quads and two 3A, so it's not as bad for us. Of course everything depends on execution, and these guys can jump...

The coolest thing ~ Dai's total planned jumps score ~ exactly 100.00 Cool
(Although it may be a little more if he does 4T+2T and 3A+3T* instead of 4T+3T and 3A+2T* Wink )

GO DAI!!!

^Thanks for the link. Wong has predicted Javier, Hanyu and Chan for the podium. That certainly is not my prediction.

I am not happy to hear about Dai's knee. I wonder if it has been bothering him all season
due to the extra training of his second quad.

Almost everyone is predicting some combination of these three on the podium. People have short memories.
We'll see, no many have predicted Dai wining GP.

We are the ones that know the truth Wink

Do you know that almost every prediction on men' of skate experts especially winner turned out be wrong at this season.
That means men' are very close contest so there is no front runner.

It seems to me that key factor is Rink size at London. as we know, mainrink is hockey size but subrink is full size. Rolling Eyes

I think who can skate 2(almost)clean programs will be champion at London. clean is important this time.
To be honest, if Javier can skate clean in SP and Kevin can nail fully rotated 2quads in SP, they would be front runners.

Unfortunately Jackie Wong miscalculated Dai-chan's SP jump score. Dai-chan switched the order of 3A and 3Lz-3T in Moonlight Sonata.

I "think" his inconsistency of this season is mainly due to the shoes problem. When his shoes were good, he was good. (JO, GPF, JN *NHK was too soon after he threw away that horrible shoes which he wore in CoC and broke into new ones which he also wore GPF and JN.) I think the shoes he wore in 4CC were not so bad. Look at his speed there, which he totally lost in CoC. Just he needed a little more time to get used to them.

However it’s really a pity. He already had a good quad at the beginning of the season in Oct. But it seems changing shoes set him back for a while every time.

As you know, Dai-chan decided to use different models of both shoes and blade this season before it started. He probably have to think what to do after WC and probably WTT, whether he will keep using the current set of shoes and blade or go back to the previous set of them.

Anyway, now I just hope both of he and his shoes are in good shape and having good practice in US.!


Ganbare Dai-chan! cheers cheers
