I got my copy of the YOI guidebook “Yuri on Life” today! Unfortunately, I don’t have time to give it a good look right now
(it’s 144 pages packed with stuff), so I just skimmed through the majority of it. I’m noting some things that I’m excited about:
full list of SP&FS program elements for Yuuri, Victor (just FS), Yurio, J.J., Otabek, Chris, and Phichit. Along with the changes Yuuri, Yurio, and J.J. made to their programs in the GPF.
this means we can calculate their BVs now that we have confirmed spins
the coaches have names and small info blurbs!
Guang-Hong’s coach is ユー・シャオイー (Xiaoli Yu)
Seung-gil’s coach is パク・ミンソ(Minsoo Park?)
(help with these names would be appreciated)
Phichit’s second coach is Coach Muramoto (村元) - the lady you see rinkside with Celestino in the GPF.
Leo’s coach…still has no name. But at least we know they train in Colorado Springs!
calendar of the competitions starting from the Sochi GPF to the Barcelona GPF
apparently the Chu-Shikoku-Kyushu competition was the first week(end) of October
a completed points chart for qualifying for the GPF
Quite a number of real life skaters who watched YOI were interviewed
Takeshi Honda (who voiced himself in ep1 as the commentator next to Morooka), Takahiko Kozuka, Evgenia Medvedeva, Stephane Lambiel & Deniss Vasiljevs, and more.
page 144 - without biology no one would be dancing, no one would need to perform ritual mating displays for the purposes of reproduction. Maybe someone would have come up with dancing when they realized that doing it long enough you felt like you were on drugs, but that would have been a shitty kind of unsexy dancing that I don’t want to hear about.
What books are your favorites/ what books are on your list to read?!
my favorite books are let the great world spin by colum mccann, white oleander by janet fitch, anything written by e.e. cummings (he’s my favorite poet). i’m not big into novels. i get bored easily by them. but when i find the very few that move me, they make me want to write one. i love anais nin’s & frida kahlo’s diaries. i don’t have a list of books to read but i just ordered madness, rack, and honey by mary ruefle. it’s a collection of lectures. i kept seeing quotes from it and they were so beautiful i needed to find the book. i’m currently reading one of leonard cohen’s books of songs and poems and i’m working my way through e.e. cummings’ complete published collection. that book is 1,144 pages long. i’m on page 144. i’ll get there…
i want you on your best days so i can witness that intoxicating smile of yours but, i also want you on your worst days so i can comfort you and remind you how amazing you are. how blessed i am to have you in my life. i want your tired smile and your drunken self, so i can kiss away that hangover. i want you on nights you can’t sleep so you can wake me up and tell me what’s on your mind, talk my ear off until the sun rises. i want you when you’re laughing at yourself because that is honestly the most beautiful thing ever. i want all of you, forever and always.
The comic book community is coming together to help the victims of theOrlando shooting. In December, DC Comics and IDW Publishing will publish “Love Is Love,”a 144-page comic book whose proceeds will benefit Equality Florida and its fund for those affected by the June 12 attack at the Pulse nightclub in Florida.
Do you know why the nozaki manga has around 144 pages but most Other manga's around 180-200 yet it is more expensive than most, around 12/13 dollars against mostly 10 (price on cover) do you happen to know why?
TL;DR: Gangan Online’s comics are a bit more expensive than other publishers’ like Jump or Hana to Yume. It’s the publishers’ fault, not Tsubaki-sensei.
This gets kind of long so I’m going to put it under a read more.
“San Diego, CA (September 21, 2016) – IDW Publishing, with the support of DC Entertainment, will honor the victims of Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub tragedy by publishing LOVE IS LOVE, an anthology graphic novel curated by writer Marc Andreyko (BATWOMAN, WONDER WOMAN ’77). In the wake of this devastating event, Andreyko assembled a group of fellow comic book creators to contribute to the benefit project. Andreyko received an overwhelming response across the comic book community and beyond, with over 200 writers and artists lending their talents to LOVE IS LOVE, a collection of over 100 short graphic stories. All material has been donated by the writers, artists, and editors, with all proceeds going to victims, survivors, and their families via EQUALITY FLORIDA.
LOVE IS LOVE will debut in comic book shops and bookstores this December. The anthology graphic novel is a 144-page love letter to the LGBTQ community containing moving and heartfelt stories—some using iconic DC characters—from some of the greatest talent in comics, including Phil Jimenez, Steve Sadowski, Paul Jenkins, Mike Carey, Matt Wagner, Marguerite Bennett, Aneke, Damon Lindelof, Patton Oswalt, Steven Orlando, Rafael Albuquerque, Jason Aaron, Jason Latour, James Asmus, Ming Doyle, James Tynion IV, Cecil Castellucci, Brandon Peterson, Jesus Saiz, Olivier Coipel, Leinil Yu, Elsa Charretier, and many more to be announced.
“When tragedy happens, art responds. And after the Pulse massacre, the comics community responded quickly, decisively, and with open hearts,” said project organizer and writer Andreyko. “I could not be more proud of this book, or to be a member of the comics community. The talent and emotion on every page is staggering. LOVE IS LOVE mourns the 49 lost, honors the survivors, and celebrates love in all forms.”
“When Marc brought this project to me, there was no hesitation about us getting involved,” said IDW Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall. “To echo Marc’s sentiments, we are proud of the hard work and talent that has gone into this project and to be involved in any way to support the survivors and their families in the face of tragedy.”
“We’re deeply thankful to all the participants who donated their work to LOVE IS LOVE,” said Sarah Gaydos, Group Editor for IDW Publishing. “The outpouring of emotion from their work honors the LGBTQ community, and helps express the grief we’re all feeling.”
“Marc’s heartfelt passion for this cause and this project has inspired everyone involved in LOVE IS LOVE,” explains Jamie Rich, Group Editor of DC’s Vertigo imprint. “As an editor on the book, I continue to be moved every day by the expressions of hope and love the contributors have put forth, and can only imagine the profound impact the book will have on readers, as well.”
The contributors behind LOVE IS LOVE have banded together to send a powerful message through their art that they stand with the victims of this national tragedy. Help spread the love this December and become part of this historic comics event.”
The familiar spirit is within as well as without. Some say it begins from the without, and draws to your very heart as you walk down the paths, and become whole within yourself.
Some say the spirit blossoms forth from within you, out of your union of your most innermost self, the root of your spirit, with the otherworld.
For some it could be one, for others it could be the other, and for many it could be a bit of both.
In my practice, the Familiar Spirit becomes my supernatural assistant and Holy Guardian Angel when practicing Evocation and Grimoire Magic, showing that sometimes one spirit can encompass various roles. The Familiar Spirit is my ultimate guide, teacher, and companion on my crooked path.
