I want to get more into ladies, pairs and ice dance. What are some of the must-watch programs of the few past seasons that you'd recommend?

i’m taking “past few seasons” to mean from 2014-15 to 2016-17, basically this current olympic cycle. this is biased towards my faves. competitive programs only. for more skaters, i recommend looking up the results from the last few worlds and just watching those events. you might unexpectedly discover a skater you like.

Gustav Mahler (1860-1911).

As a composer, Mahler acted as a bridge between the 19th-century Austro-German tradition and the modernism of the early 20th century. While in his lifetime his status as a conductor was established beyond question, his own music gained wide popularity only after periods of relative neglect which included a ban on its performance in much of Europe during the Nazi era.

The Symphony No. 5 by Gustav Mahler was composed in 1901 and 1902, mostly during the summer months at Mahler’s cottage at Maiernigg. Among its most distinctive features are the trumpet solo that opens the work; The musical canvas and emotional scope of the work, which lasts over an hour, are huge.

After 1945 Mahler’s music was rediscovered and championed by a new generation of listeners; He then became a frequently performed and recorded composer, a position he has sustained into the 21st century.

MY CURRENT OBSESSION: VIRTUE & MOIR ICE DANCE

Like, okay. I don’t even like sports. I sorta hate sports.

But this is waaaay more than athleticism. IT IS MORE THAN BEAUTY, STRENGTH AND GRACE… AND SO MUCH MORE THAN THE SOMETIMES SILLY COSTUMES. AND IF YOU DON’T APPRECIATE IT, YOU’RE WRONG.

IT IS MAKING OUT. ON ICE. TO MUSIC. WITH YOUR LEG BEHIND YOUR HEAD. WHILE BALANCED ON ONE LEG. WHILE A GUY SKATES ONE ONE BLADE AND LIFTS YOU WITH ONE HAND.

IT IS SHIPPING. SHIPPING *AND* SPORTS. PROBABLY THE ONLY SPORT WHERE YOU CAN SHIP THE TEAM MATES. AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

AS FOR TESSA VIRTUE & SCOTT MOIR: I UNASHAMEDLY SHIP IT. AND THE BEST PART IS THAT THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW THEY’RE IN LOVE.

HELP. MEEEEE.
