Another thought that I wish some people realized is that some people don’t like things shoved in their face. They will literally ignore it and move on. Most likely from past traumas or independence. They like to be thorough with their knowledge and educate on their own at their own pace. Not saying they won’t ask for help at some point when they are ready, but please remember that not everyone likes having information yelled at them.

“I think about Shoma’s FS at Nationals a lot. Just the pure joy on his face to be skating and how free and light he looked makes me so emotional. That’s the look I always wanna see on a skaters’ face when they skate, not a scared one that’s always calculating every move they do.”

“I have to say for someone who doesn’t have great jumping technique, Shoma Uno’s 3Aeu3F is so good? Probably the best looking euler/half loop combination right now? He has the best rhythm for it, and he makes it look so visually awesome (as opposed to it looking like a stepout or stumble like other euler combos) with his beautiful open chest. Also, always gloriously backloaded and with the music… truly a blessed combo.”

You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t noticed. His verbal bombshells are louder than ever, but Donald J Trump is no longer president of the United States.

By having no constructive response to any of the monumental crises now convulsing America, Trump has abdicated his office.

He is not governing. He’s golfing, watching cable TV and tweeting.

How has Trump responded to the widespread unrest following the murder in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for minutes as he was handcuffed on the ground?

Trump called the protesters “thugs” and threatened to have them shot. “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” he tweeted, parroting a former Miami police chief whose words spurred race riots in the late 1960s.

On Saturday, he gloated about “the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons” awaiting protesters outside the White House, should they ever break through Secret Service lines.

Trump’s response to the last three ghastly months of mounting disease and death has been just as heedless. Since claiming Covid-19 was a “Democratic hoax” and muzzling public health officials, he has punted management of the coronavirus to the states.

Governors have had to find ventilators to keep patients alive and protective equipment for hospital and other essential workers who lack it, often bidding against each other. They have had to decide how, when and where to reopen their economies.

Trump has claimed “no responsibility at all” for testing and contact-tracing – the keys to containing the virus. His new “plan” places responsibility on states to do their own testing and contact-tracing.

Trump is also awol in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

More than 41 million Americans are jobless. In the coming weeks temporary eviction moratoriums are set to end in half of the states. One-fifth of Americans missed rent payments this month. Extra unemployment benefits are set to expire at the end of July.

What is Trump’s response? Like Herbert Hoover, who in 1930 said “the worst is behind us” as thousands starved, Trump says the economy will improve and does nothing about the growing hardship. The Democratic-led House passed a $3tn relief package on 15 May. Mitch McConnell has recessed the Senate without taking action and Trump calls the bill dead on arrival. 

What about other pressing issues a real president would be addressing? The House has passed nearly 400 bills this term, including measures to reduce climate change, enhance election security, require background checks on gun sales, reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act and reform campaign finance. All are languishing in McConnell’s inbox. Trump doesn’t seem to be aware of any of them.

There is nothing inherently wrong with golfing, watching television and tweeting. But if that’s pretty much all that a president does when the nation is engulfed in crises, he is not a president.

Trump’s tweets are no substitute for governing. They are mostly about getting even.

[…]

In reality, Donald Trump doesn’t run the government of the United States. He doesn’t manage anything. He doesn’t organize anyone. He doesn’t administer or oversee or supervise. He doesn’t read memos. He hates meetings. He has no patience for briefings. His White House is in perpetual chaos.

Having an accessible enough Hollywood Video store was one of the things I missed when I first moved to Texas. Blockbuster Video just didn’t feel the same.

Guess I can’t speak for the entirety of the former chain, but I remember the one I grew up going to back in Nevada being pretty awesome. It had a really good selection of movies, video games, and even a good variety of anime back when it was starting to blow up in the late 90s. It was also the only place in the Las Vegas bordering podunk mountain I lived in where you could buy video games, when they put a Game Crazy in it, until they built a Wal-Mart. It was a fairly small Game Crazy location, but like the movies it had a good variety with both then-current and classic games.

I also thought Hollywood Video stores usually looked more aesthetically pleasing compared to Blockbuster stores, too.

I remember their rental policies just being better in general, too.

If hating people for simply being Trans, Bi, Gay, etc, is wrong, than I don’t see why it should be any different when it’s Cis people. That pretty much goes for things like race, too.

“I see the person that was hounding Evgenia’s location is now bitter and angry that the drama has slowed down, and she still has a significant fanbase left in Japan and Russia. Good riddance. I still think Evgenia was dumb and irresponsible, but I’m also not into the obsessive way this person was stalking her.”

“I think that Shoma changing coaches was probably the smartest thing he ever did. Just look at him! He is so much happier with Stéphane after every competition and it feels like he could really have a huge comeback next season.”

These were some of my opinions that I felt nervous about posting while the show was still airing. Since, I’m not the person to share my full opinion on something. But since the show is over, I decided, “Forget what others think, I’m doing it.” Some of them I’ve already posted on here already. (Opinions on under cut.)

Obviously, a lot is still in question with the status of the NBA and its return because of the COVID-19 pandemic; but let’s switch gears for a second. The buzz surrounding the 2020 NBA Draft continues building up, because one of its most significant prospects in LaMelo Ball continues to be the topic of all conversations.

The projected top-three pick, who also has a legitimate chance of going No. 1, is being closely linked with the NY Knicks these days. So in the event, Ball is selected by the Knicks, what should we expect from him? Just consistent glimpses of greatness lol. Even as I say that in a jokingly matter, I do mean what I said. 

The 18-year-old point guard possesses an NBA-caliber game, body, and mind, and it helps he’s familiar with dealing with fame. As a matter of fact, I would say, the only players who can relate to LaMelo Ball in regards to achieving such recognition or more of it in high school are LeBron James and Zion Williamson, and we saw how they turned out. 

I believe it was earlier this year in which I wrote about how confident I am in LaMelo’s ability to succeed in the NBA, and I’m doing the same here, as I say he will do just fine in New York City.
