King Kong Bundy on Married… With Children
[October 29th, 1995]

Married… With Children was one of the first syndicated programs to mention taboo subjects in passing as if it were regular conversation. It was a perfect program to have some relationship with the world of professional wrestling! The main characters of the series (Al, Peggy, Bud, and Kelly) were the Bundy family, which may or may not have been a callback to professional wrestler King Kong Bundy. Then again, the original neighboring family had the last name Rhodes, so it’s entirely possible!

This suspicion could be confirmed, however, by two appearances by King Kong Bundy himself. First in a 1987 episode as Peggy’s brother Uncle Irwin. Then again in 1995 when Bundy appeared as his wrestling persona in an episode titled Flight Of The Bumblebee, where Bud has to earn a spot in his father’s NO MA’AM group by crashing a pro wrestling match. A clip from the episode can be seen here.

wait a second.....

Based off what we saw in episode 12, I believed that Victor had only just started thinking of returning to the ice as an actual option after Yuuri had mentioned it at the hotel. 

I thought that Yuuri had put the idea in his head, and he had been sitting on it those past few days. But based off the timeline of the figure skating season, I think he’s been thinking about this for quite a while. 

The GPF happens around December 9-12 and the Russian Nationals are somewhere between December 20-26 (if I’m not mistaken). With this timeline, Victor would have about a week to somehow prepare and perfect 2–not only presentable, but comeback-worthy–programs. Given that this is actually impossible, I feel like Victor had been considering this for months at that point, creating his programs whenever he had time when not coaching. (Don’t forget that he has music composed specifically for his programs that fit perfectly to the skating, which would take quite a while to get done and so would designing his extremely well thought out and extravagant costumes). Returning to the ice was no spur of the moment decision, but something Victor has wanted for a long ass time, but he didn’t do it because of Yuuri. 

He didn’t want to leave Yuuri’s side and Victor hadn’t considered doing BOTH at once until after Yuuri had asked him to stay on as his coach for the following season (probably because it’s as absolutely insane as it sounds)

So he gave himself an ultimatum and when given the choice he picked Yuuri over skating. He gave up the only constant reassurace he had in his life for the man he loves with his entire heart. Not only until Yuuri said he actually wanted Victor to return did he actually plan on following through. Now if THAT. AINT. LOVE. then I don’t know what the fuck is

SO I FOUND THIS

To combat rampant dissatisfaction, the Government launches a program that pairs every person with their perfect pet, as chosen by an incredibly advanced program. Most people have cats, dogs, or birds…today, your earthworm just arrived.

can we just. take a moment to appreciate how amazing yuuri katsuki is? like truly. he is. amazing. can we please talk about how hard he works at maintaining a peak physique for skating? can we please talk about how endearing his love for food is? can we please talk about how amazing and brilliant he is for skating to the victor nikiforov’s free program in his off season to near perfection when he isn’t at what’s considered the ideal physique for figure skating? can we please talk about how he’s the top men’s skater in japan and most likely owned japanese nationals and like. every competition in the junior division? 

and not only that, but yuuri katsuki made it to the grand prix while getting his college degree and studied in america for five years while ranking high enough in competitions and making it to the grand prix final. and the only reason he flubbed was because he went through a lot? his dog died, he binge ate and just… he wasn’t at his best and oh he’s just so scared and anxious of letting people down and blames himself for things he just can’t control and honestly like?? give him?? a hug?? the biggest hug??

and despite all that, he still got back up again, still got himself out of his slump. he trained his ass off, got to work, made the most of his time with victor and is still! making the most! of his time with victor! he’s just so good! amazing! iconic! everything i aspire to be! i love him! i love yuuri katsuki!

  • what i say: i'm fine
  • what i mean: "history maker" foreshadows both of the yuris paving the way for a new generation of skaters. yuri plisetsky crushed viktor's world record in the short program. we've seen yuuri peak in his eros performance but he consistently flubs something in his yuri on ice performance. yuuri will set the new record in the free skate with a perfect program because him and viktor will finally be on the same page in their relationship to complete the story of his ice skating career. he's going to land that quadruple flip so perfectly that the entire stadium is going to scream or at least i am.
climb, climb -- or, K-2SO: the droid with existential anxiety and a smart mouth.

K-2SO says, “There is a ninety-five per cent chance I will outlive you.”

“Gee,” says Cassian, “thanks.”

K-2SO has a comprehensive knowledge of human idioms and linguistic quirks: he knows precisely what sarcasm is.

He’s a little shit. He pretends he doesn’t.

“You’re welcome,” he says.

On Love

So I don’t usually write meta or things along those lines, I prefer to write romances and mushy crap. But this, this is something I really feel strongly about that I need to get out of my brain.

There needs to be an “I love you” moment from Victor or Yuuri as, I feel, this action will be the catalyst that will help Yuuri skate perfectly and finally accept the love that is felt for him, about him. There has to be something that will inspire Yuuri and open himself to actually feel the important forms of love that  are imperative to him skating a perfect ”Yuri on Ice” program. Doing this will cause Yuuri to skate like he has never skated before, land that quad flip, and show the world the truth about the love he and Victor have.

This entire show has been about love and the different forms of love, of which Yuuri does not have a full grasp on yet. So, it is my opinion that something is going to happen in episode 12 that will click and Yuuri will finally understand.

I really feel that we are going to have a parking garage moment that will end with Victor in tears, and Yuuri shattering Victor’s heart. He isn’t going to listen to Victor, and Victor is going to be stunned, and unsure of what to do or say. Something dramatic is going to go down that will cause tension between the two until it’s time for the FS program. Yuuri really feels he is doing the right thing by telling Victor that he wants to end things with him, but the truth is that they are still not going to be on the same page yet.

YURIO IS SO STRONG

He just skated his HEART out at Rostelecom. He perfected the most difficult program he has ever done on the first try, with the support of his grandpa, only to come in second place once again. He is so much pain and is absolutely devastated.

yet he still manages to go searching for his friend, Yuuri, through the streets of Moscow to comfort him in a time he knows Yuuri is missing Victor and is really vulnerable. He even brings him something he knows will cheer him up

“The Russian Punk” is actually a thoughtful softie who needs to be loved and protected at all costs

plz screamer forgive me, I really love u, but people must know the existence of this video Q7Q!

How did the composer girl manage to make such a perfect piece for Yuri?

 As in, a free program music (the one titled Yuri on Ice) that just so happens to have a part that signifies Victor appearing in Yuri’s life and him realizing something like love?

What if it’s because Yuri told her, even if unknowingly?

Consider this: when being asked to make another music, the girl decided to make something better (since the last was a failure), but she needed more info on Yuri, plus they hadn’t spoken in a while so there was some catching up to do. So they started chatting.

As Yuri spoke about things, the girl noticed how he’s changed a little. He was more confident and happier. And of course he mentioned Victor. Rambled about him before he could catch himself. And in a tone that wasn’t that of a fan speaking of his idol…

And she saw the videos of his competition for Victor against Yurio. The way he and Victor hugged before it, how he skated to entice Victor, how they were holding each other close later…

And she puts all that into the free program music. And maybe neither Yuri or Victor had realized initially why the song was so perfect, only that it fit, somehow.

Yuzuru’s performance at 4CC: impressions

I’d like to start this useless post with my favorite quote (always relevant):

“You nearly run out of superlatives for Yuzuru Hanyu. But there’s one that comes to mind: inspirational.” © British ESP uncles.

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;
  • 300+;
  • 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;
  • What salchow;
  • 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

Good luck in Helsinki, Yuzuru. We believe in you.
