For that to happen — they have to have not just the physique, but much more — deep understanding of music, how it is composed, what it means to say, etc. This is where sport is different — like figure skating for instance. And also — in sport they get choreographed and more or less told what to do — in ballet it is different, the most talented ones know what to do themselves you see, they just feel it. It is art.

Yes, there are many rules and restrictions in figure skating. But don't forget about ice shows and exhibition programs)
For example, Evgenia Medvedeva



obviously has her own style. She has thousands of haters because of her contemporary choreography, but many more people admire her for that. And she never uses warhorses (Carmen, Swan Lake, Nutcracker and so on). I think it's great that she seeks new ways. It's a brave move because of the risks to be denied by general public.
She is working with new choreographer now, I hope she keeps her style. And of course famous skaters do have a say in their choreo.

All post Soviet space has the same problems — corruption, no rule of law, etc. So there is no point to put down and mock Ukrainians over something that Russia has in abundance herself — like corruption for instance.

I heard 2.7%

Both Ukraine and Russia are recovering from hard fall.

The point is not to mock Ukrainians. You all (Convention, Glory to Ukraine) claimed that Maidan is a positive moment in history of Ukraine and after some economic reforms life in Ukraine will become better.
More than 4 years have passed, the positive result is nowhere to be seen. Life didn't become better or easier for Ukrainians. Corruption is flourishing.
Even pro-EU Ukrainians can't say that their life is better now than in 2013. They will probably tell you it was worth it anyway. But what about Ukrainians who didn't embrace Maidan in 2013−2014. Many of them leave in fear now. They can't freely express their opinion, Ukrainian government did nothing during last 4 years to comfort them.

Brand new performance by Evgenia (Ludovico Einaudi - Experience). She choreographed it herself.


What do you think about it? I see some similarities with Averbukh choreo, but it's her first try. I bet it is about writing her life anew. I liked it.

P.S. It's so unusual for me to see how she is preparing her jumps like an ordinary skater. So used to see her jumping out of footwork. Anyway, she is jumping again and that means she is fine and back on track. She is a hard worker, so I have no doubts she will be ready for next season in time.

Most putinists here on the forum come here to mock Ukranians, they are full of hatred and self righteousness, whilst themselves — living in one of the most corrupt countries in the world. They come here to pour hatred on Ukranians, it is disgusting honestly.

Some wanted a revolution there, others didn't. It happened. Yes, times are hard there, but it will get better. I honestly truly believe it will. Russians would be better off learning to make demands from their own Government. Your lot can throw their weight around only where others are concerned, looking in the mirror from time to time would help.

I am nowhere near as knowledgeable re figure skating as you are, you are so into it. I will watch the video later, I am very busy at the moment, but I am sure it is absolutely beautiful and she did a great job. Nice to hear she is back on track — fantastic.

Sure, take your time. All my big bosses with their «brilliant creative ideas» are on vacations or roadshows (or smth like that) atm, so I'm enjoying rather peaceful and quiet time in the office.

I've found a funny picture. This is Ekaterina Bobrova (ice dance) and Evgenia Medvedeva (ladies). Their costumes perfectly reflect the overall situation in their disciplines



Yep, the situation in Russian ice dance is really that awful

Nice for some (re — quiet time in the office),
I am in a cab right now — coming back from the meeting with a client — it is thunder storming and bucketing down with rain here in London- so much so that it is actually pitch dark.
Still got loads to do before going on holiday — really badly need a break.

Re skating — yeah, it is a funny picture. But at least Russian ladies are doing well — that's something.

Grin (25771),

A couple of pics with funny stuff from Instagram (helps me killing time at the moment, as stuck in a «mother of all» traffic jams, the weather is so depressing)

By the way — these are not my posts , it is just people post funny stuff on Instagram, just makes me laugh.

I used to have a back office job before — in Bloomberg LP. That was years ago though — my last job before having kids. I used to deal with legal side of accounting — VAT, Customs and Excise, etc. It is a very prestigious organisation, in London Bloomberg has massive headquarters, all the broadcasting for Europe — Germany, ~Denmark, France — is done out of London. But Bloomberg TV is not the main side of business, 95% of Bloomberg's turnover comes from selling Bloomberg Terminals. Well, not selling — renting them out. The terminal itself is worthless (hardware — wise), it is the information/data continuously coming to the screen that is of value. Plus it is a trading platform. The main competitor is Reuters, but in my days there Bloomberg was 3 seconds quicker or something like that. It was a beautiful place to work (inside it has the most famous private collection of marine aquariums in the world — the columns are made out of them, and the walls behind people's desks, can you believe it?), but the job was dead boring. And the hours were too long 8 am till 6:30 pm, it was crazy. I wanted to go into sales there as well — but people told me it was boring as well — it is too easy, cause it is not sales — but order taking basically. Every banker or trader needs a Bloomberg Terminal, so there is no selling involved as such, banks order them themselves. The same as — if you take credit control for instance in the back office — as a credit controller you also don't do much — cause banks pay up like clockwork. A lot of people who work there wouldn't earn even a quarter of what they are earning there (the money is good) — elsewhere, and in my view many people there lose skills, cause the job is just too easy — well, anything apart from IT of course.

P. S. It is so much easier to write in English and quicker. I can't type in Russian — that is the problem, takes ages.
