I’ve wondering if I should post this and friends of mine said I should.
I asked Jordan Thomas on twitter about Sinclair and he answered a question that has been on my mind: Sinclair is full Panamanian and he pretty much had to remake himself in the persona we all know.
Although I love idea of him being biracial(being biracial myself), I honestly LOVE Jordan description of Sinclair since it fits with the theme of change of Bioshock 2 so much. I’m so happy he answered back, you have no idea!!!
I’m pretty confident that his performance yesterday is one of my all-time favorites. It wasn’t absolutely clean due to the unfortunate (but not completely unexpected) mistake on the combo in the second half of the program, and some landings were not as perfect as they could be (considering his abilities). However, the most exciting thing about this performance is how Yuzuru was able to put himself together after disappointing SP, a couple of bad practices and the serious mistake in the middle of the program. He fought until the end, stayed very focused and determined to make up as much points as he could, even though he had to remake a half of the program and execute a bunch extremely challenging elements cleanly in the process. I’m so proud of him for not giving up and showing everyone that it is always worth it to fight for what you want.
And here is my personal list of the highlights of his performances:
Got a fourth highest FS score in history even with a serious mistake and -10 points in BV;
Put himself together and delivered even when some things went wrong;
He can change his layout if he needs to without major consequences or a decline in quality;
Has enough stamina to complete a ridiculously difficult program (quad lutz is coming #yolo);
Was able to execute two fantastic (2+ GOE) quad loops;
Got a perfect score for his 3A in the short program;
Got all level 4s on the spins & step sequence in the free program;
No Biellmann spin in the free, but there was a new fantastic exit from the spins;
+3 GOE-worthy 3A as a last jumping element in the free program right after his trademark Ina Bauer (in the last 20 seconds of the program);
Beautifully executed step sequence (right along with the music);
Caused multiple hysterical screams, especially after the emergency quad (poor fans; if only people knew what we are going through);
Also imagine Brian’s mental state in these 2 seconds after he realized what Yuzu was up to. It’s really hard to be Brian;
At last, I think the performance in the free can be a good confidence boost for Yuzuru before WC. Now he knows that he always has options. Hopefully it will help him to calm down and stop doubting himself too much
many of you know that jason and i used to be very close, and i know we share a lot of mutuals. please know that this comes from a place of concern. he deleted his blog as a result of me confronting him but he might remake and i want everyone to be aware of who he really is: a predatory manipulator.
jason is notorious for unsolicited dick pics and unsolicited sexual comments, particularly towards women and dfab people.
the recipient is peter @peppermintlarry who identified as ace at the time and had endured sexual trauma as a child. jason was 100% aware of this and said it regardless. he also takes pride in having sex with people who are in committed relationships. he literally brags about it to people who don’t even ask.
emotional manipulation i personally have been a victim of emotional manipulation all my life so you’d think i’d be really good at spotting it, but you’d be wrong. i didn’t realize it was going on until a group of his friends, some of which who were victims as well (peter, eileen @eileensardine, and 3 anonymous sources) reached out to me because they were concerned. jason would literally hit himself in the face on camera if i was upset with him. he KNEW it triggered me, as someone who is in recovery from severe self harm/mutilation. sometimes he would even text me about it if we weren’t in a skype call. i literally thought he would self harm or even commit suicide if i stopped talking to him, which is the main reason i remained his friend even when i wanted to leave. he used his mental illness as a way to get me to pay attention to him. i am not the only one who has been affected by his emotional manipulation unfortunately and we want to keep it from happening again.
obsessive i dated jason for awhile and broke up with him a year and a half ago. ever since then he has been literally obsessed with me. he would tell people that i was still hopelessly in love with him and that i would flirt with him incessantly despite the fact that i’ve been in a happy committed relationship for over a year. he would even go as far as saying we had an ongoing sexual relationship behind my boyfriend’s back. i don’t even have to say it but i’m going to anyway: that is completely false. i have had him on “do not disturb” on my phone because he would text me constantly (CONSTANTLY) but i rarely replied, since i was trying to distance myself from someone who made me incredibly uncomfortable. i don’t know where he got any clue that i was reciprocating these feelings. the scariest part wasn’t his obsession with me, but his obsession with my significant other. he HATED my boyfriend for “stealing” me from him, despite never speaking a single word to him. he told peter he wanted to fly to california without telling me and beat my boyfriend with a bat.
this is not the first nor the only time he mentioned wanting to physically harm him. i have been incredibly happy with zac for a very long time and he was aware of that. there is no reason for him to want to harm him besides his own twisted agenda.
if there is anything i missed please feel free to reblog and add on! i know there are more stories out there.
if you can reblog to get the word out that would be helpful! he’s most likely going to remake so keep an eye out.
