Introducing Javier Fernandez

Since everyone is doing intro post to their favorite skaters, what the hell. Might as well do one of my own. Many of my favorites already have introductions (and much better than this) but there is one which I haven’t found and I really wanted to do: Javier Fernandez. Many people just know him because he’s Yuzuru Hanyu’s training partner, but this guy here has an awesome story of his own.

Warning: Very, VERY, long post. Read at your own risk.

Anti-MRA Protest at the University of Sydney - 11th of May 2017

I’d like it if everyone could spread this as far and wide as possible. And yes, these are my videos, recorded at potato quality on my phone, with my clumsy fingers occasionally blocking the lens.

Here’s how it went down.

The Players: Fascist Free USyd vs. a coalition of BROSoc, the Conservative Club, and Society for Liberty.

The Event: A screening of Cassie Jaye’s Documentary “The Red Pill”.

The Setting: The University of Sydney (Carslaw Building), 11th of May 2017.

The other born in… well, no one’s sure where… who joined a band before she was even a teenager and who we first met at around 10 years old; a Japanese guitar prodigy and martial arts expert who mysteriously arrived at Gorillaz’ Kong Studio in a FedEx crate…
