Johnny Weir

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

First of all, your new header. Let's talk abou your new header. It's just fantastic-bombastic!

And that quote. Well, I've got a post coming out this coming Sunday apropos Apple's Ipad where I include a link to a recent cover of The Economist on Steve Jobbs. Alas, I'm not an Apple person. :-(

But that they're funky and cool, well, who disagrees?

Greetings from London.

PS: Hey, stop messing around with your word verification: 'stank'. Is that the way to treat a metrosexual? :-)

I love his flamboyant skating and thought he made a good showing at the Olympics. It's the best performance I've seen from him.

We've been watchin' Johnny....nice kid.
I can't put my finger on it, but he doesn't seem like the kind of guy that would hang out with me and smoke cigars, ah! who cares...
A great kid, love watching a tv series about him, Be Good Johnny Weir...great show, addictive.

Oi! Yoli- thanks for commenting on my site! Yer a fencer? Great stuff, I can't imagine spending days out int the hot sun putting up fences. I see you like parrots. I have two of the monsters living with me...they are wild and moved in.

Thanks again for nice comments on my site
