Life of a figure skating fan

a Yamamoto x Kubo short film


Featuring such scenes as:

-lagging and disconnecting livestreams

-time zone differences interfering with your sleep schedule

-lamenting that your local TV station won’t show the event live (or at all)

-when all else fails, you can count on the Russian and Chinese streaming sites

-finding out you’ve missed a bunch of skaters, but you’ve luckily made it for your favorite’s turn

-your favorite skater is about to start, when a parent/roommate interrupts


“I applaud the director and writer for faithfully capturing the struggles of passionate fans. These scenes may not be as glamorous or dynamic as the figure skating itself, but they tell the story of the unsung heroes who support the skaters from afar.” ~Anon E. Mous


(…but seriously, I really do appreciate these little snippets in Yuri!!! on ICE. They’re spot on.)

Johnny Cage: As a presenter, right?
Jax Briggs: As the Stig - the silent role.

Johnny Cage: What’s the gist, Legolas?
Kung Jin: You’re in my way, Mr Cage.
Johnny Cage: YOU SHALL NOT PASS.

I'd be really interested in your view on harry releasing his solo and album before Dunkirk is released. Would this effect how he's seen as an actor? Would it interfere with any of the promo for the movie or his music? When do you think would be the best strategic time to release his music? I'm super excited for Harry's music, and am interested in your thoughts on the new timeline suggested

yeahhhhhhhhhh I don’t know.  I don’t really like it and I”m trying to work through why I feel that way and i’m having a tough time putting it into words that make sense outside of my own head lol

I think part of it is because I’ve heard from different people how he wants to keep music and acting separate which i think is very smart.  And this definitely won’t help him do that.  It MIGHT affect how he’s seen as an actor, depending on what kind of music it’ll be.  Especially since Dunkirk is such a serious film and such a big departure from anything he’s done in the past, both musically and promo-wise with One Direction.  It’s just completely different tonally and would have been a great reintroduction after he’s been in hiding for so long.  

Promo also will be…complicated.  They’ll probably do print media/interviews in late may with on-camera interviews/press junkets in June.  So that’s…a lot.  Granted, it’s an ensemble film so he won’t be needed for all of the promo.  It can be spread around a little bit, but at the same time…the fact that he’s a big star and it’s his first movie means the press is going to want to talk to him a lot. It’ll definitely be a balancing act.  

Then there’s the question of with that balancing act, would it lead to overexposure?  Or is his team baking on the fact that his disappearing act over the past year and a half been enough for people to WANT all that Harry in your face all at once?  I mean, listen, I nearly died yesterday when we got to see pictures of him after not seeing him for so very long…but even I”m a little hesitant about this.  

Personally i’ve been expecting it to be a fall release this whole time.  He’s a big enough name and it’s so anticipated that he’ll do enough sales to compete in Q4.  It also seemingly wouldn’t compete with what the other boys release.  Plus, it’ll be enough time post dunkirk to recover and have people excited to see him again.  Always leave ‘em wanting more, and all that, you know? 

Hopefully my dash of negativity doesn’t mean my Harry card is revoked ;) You know whenever it’s released i’m gonna buy the hell out of that album and listen to it on repeat and tell everyone around me to buy it until they’re sick of me talking about it and I’ll be banned from even saying the word “styles” even if i’m talking about clothes.  Buuuuuuut i’m still hesitant for the time being.  

Our new lineup this month isn’t only TV shows; we also have hit movies. Direct from DVD, we’re proud to bring you The Rural Juror, winner of multiple awards worldwide including “Most Unpronounceable Film” at the Cannes Film Festival and “The Daytona High School Movie Night Participation Award.”  The seven-hour, one-part film follows Jenna Maroney as a twirler girl whose demure world, spurred by Irma Luhrman-Merman’s murder, is cured by a fervid whirl of her turgid error. It also stars Kari Wuhrer. We are also going to add its sequel, Urban Fervor, to our service.

Overwatch ships: Watching horror movies

Fareeha x Angela - One rainy Halloween, Fareeha thought it would be cute to watch Twilight together. Angela snapped the DVD in half and made Fareeha watch the Cronenberg version of The Fly, while quoting every line.

Hana x Lucio - Whenever one of them’s just had a break-up, they mix cheap cocktails and marathon Resident Evil or Underworld.

Gabriel x Jack - They watch REAL horror films, with SERIOUS, GRIM faces. They watch the horror classics, which really means Jack’s VHS copies of Tommyknockers and It, and they insist they’re really, really scared by them.

Reinhardt x Ana - They watch the bloodiest Dario Argento movies in their sweatpants, over a big bowl of popcorn. They don’t bother to pause the movie when trick-or-treaters come to the door.

Junkrat x Roadhog - Those leather-wrapped tirefires huff whippets and giggle over The Human Centipede.

Zarya x Mei - They’ve been trying to watch Scream for three years now, but they never get more than ten minutes in before one of them makes an excuse.

Hanzo x McCree - They aren’t allowed to watch scary movies anymore, ever since they got into an argument about whose country made the worse torture porn and watched so many gruesome movies neither of them could sleep.

Amelie x Lena -
“Oh, do you have Netflix open? Put on A Clockwork Orange!”
“Actually, I was just about to watch that Luke Cage show-”
“Clockwork Orange! Clockwork Orange!”

Basically a Femlock AU in a short film

Our film, Moxie, there is. It’s inspired by BBC Sherlock as well as the TJLC community. I even wrote in a very dramatic realization-that-you-were-in-love-the-whole-time scene that is all meta and involves tea. Yeah. This film is tea coded. I’m super serious about this film and I was hoping this lovely community could help me make it a reality :)
So if you could help me spread the word or even donate to the campaign, I’d be so grateful!
@moxieshortfilm this is the blog dedicated to the project. Behind the scenes stuff gets posted there ;)

And here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/182792225/moxie-queer-narrative-short/description
Is our kickstarter. I’m on mobile rn so I can’t do the fancy embedded thing :)

But yeah, if you want to see a 25 minute bamf wlw film about justice, good humor, and comeuppance, made by a group of queer Sherlock fans, please spread the word. We have 20 days to raise $5.000 to make this as awesome as possible, and we need all the help we can get :)

Thanks fam!
