The Perfect finale

They came back for the perfect ending.

But in sport as in life, those exits don’t just happen, even to once-in-a-generation talents like theirs, especially in a discipline so vulnerable to the vagaries of judging allegiances.

When Canada’s favourite ice dancers won gold on Tuesday afternoon local time, it was an emotional affair.

This is likely their last Olympics.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir already had a gold from Vancouver and a silver from Sochi, but came out of retirement in late 2016 for one more shot at an Olympic victory.

On Tuesday, they beat the French team of Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, who are also their training partners in Montreal. The French skated before the Canadians and scored a world record 123.35 points for a low-key, technically proficient free dance. It gave them a two-dance total of 205.28, another world record.

But the Canadians finished with an extra new world record of 206.07.

Predictably, the Internet was overjoyed

The Olympic gold medals they won are emphatic symbols of their dominance, but more significantly of their relentless pursuit of perfection. Congratulations LEGENDS!

#1

As planned, Mark2 came to fix me last night… And he left me exhausted!! 

This guy cannot be any better, he’s got everything I like: The brain, the face, the body, the attitude, and the perfect cock. And trust me, I’ve seen penises but his is an addiction.

If someone had told me twenty years ago that a young heterosexual would be my best lover, I would not have believed it. Seriously, he’s my new #1 top.

Too-Sexy-For-The-Olympics Ice Dancing Lift

Scott Moir and Tessa Virture are a three-time Olympic medal-winning ice dancing duo from Canada, and they’re currently battling it out against other ice dancers in their final Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.

Before they went off to South Korea, they won their eighth national title, and at nationals they did a Moulin Rouge-themed free-skate that included a lift I’m assuming is called The Pull Over Pussy Munch. Yes, that’s the exact technical name, I’m sure. Sadly, that lift won’t be seen at the Olympics ’cause the Olympics just can’t handle Canadian sexiness!

At the 2:24 mark in the video below, watch as Tessa gracefully flips into Scott’s arms and then climbs up onto his shoulders to give him a face full of Spandex crotch. 

If I was a judge, I would’ve immediately written “GET IT, GIRL”  on my white card and held it up. #TEAMCANADA

If Countries Were People

GERMANY

In the global arena, every country has its image, but how would they look as people?

That was the question that Russian artist Anastasia Bulgakova thought about for a year before starting her latest project. “I draw personifications of different countries,” she wrote. “All of them will be militant and warrior-like, with dirt and blood. Not because of some political persuasion, but simply because that what I always draw in any case, and the idea of warrior-countries gives a lot of creative freedom.”

From an American that’s a bit naive and idealistic to a silent Japanese guy with a suspicious smile, you’d easily recognise these ‘people’ if you met them in the street.

Below some of them, and more here.

USA

FRANCE

RUSSIA

ENGLAND

JAPAN

ISRAEL

Obviously and without a doubt here’s my favourite, “The King of ice.”

CANADA

Everyone sees him as too friendly, but no one realises that the NEVER LOST A WAR. Even war of 1812, when Mr.America tried to take his land, Mr. Canada burned down Mr. America’s house and took HIS land. When they stopped fighting, Mr.Canada gave back all the land he gained and called it a draw, even though he won.

To sum up: most countries will kill you and only Canada will play hockey with you instead.

Canada is AMAZING!!

Gravity-Defying Sculptures

Art is supposed to challenge us. Challenge our beliefs, our prejudices and even our concepts of what we believe to be possible.

Sculptures are a great medium for this, as they allow the artist to play tricks on the eye and mess with the viewer’s concepts of logic. Calling into question the laws of gravity and physics they make you wonder, how the heck did they do that?

From incredible feats of balance on a grand scale, to just plain head-scratching sorcery, below few of them.

Exquisite puckering Asshole wall art

If you’ve been looking at your living room and thinking to yourself that what it really needs to elevate it to the height of tasteful sophistication is a giant asshole and you’ve thought of hanging Donal Trump poster but realised that’s just too offensive, then Crate & Barrel has the perfect thing for you.

Most of us look at that thing and probably see the kind of hole pic that a power bottom would send to a hot power top he met on gay hookup app, but C&B wants us to think that they see a damn sea sponge…

“Resembling a sea sponge or coral, our organic-inspired wall art radiates deep lines from its dimpled center. Made of ceramic, each handcrafted dimensional disc is textured with scratches and glazed light grey. Coordinate with other Alura wall art piece”.

Whoever wrote this needs to write my Tinder bio, because they gave me a slight tingle at “radiates deep lines from its dimpled center.” 

On the other hand, Piers Morgan’s birthday is next month, and if you’re a friend or related to him, I feel sorry for you. But the good news is, you have just found the birthday gift to get him. Buy C&B’s puckering asshole wall art and paint it orange.

Piers seems to be so obsessed with the idea of eating Trump’s ass that he’d love it.

This is amazing:

And you’d also be giving a gift to humanity, because Piers wouldn’t talk as much since his tongue would always be stuck to his orange anus wall art.

Google Honours Dr. Penfield

To a generation of Canadians, “I smell burnt toast!” means something very specific, and ominous. It means they’re having a seizure. Yesterday’s Google doodle celebrated the 127th birthday of Wilder Penfield, the man behind that strange cultural reference and, more importantly, a groundbreaking neurosurgeon who pioneered new treatments for epilepsy.

Though today a Canadian icon, Penfield was actually born and raised in the United States and moved to Montreal in 1928, at age 37. There, he invented the Montreal procedure for patients with severe epilepsy. The patient remains awake under local anesthesia, while the doctor stimulates various parts of their brain tissue. The patient can then give real-time feedback about what they’re feeling, which helps the doctors destroy the nerve cells that are causing the seizures.

So what’s with the burnt toast? The first patient to undergo the Montreal procedure reported smelling burnt toast when no such thing was happening. Later, this was dramatised in a short and widely played clip explaining Penfield’s work. It’s really something. See for yourself:

On a funny and personal note, when I arrived to Montreal many years ago, Dr. Penfield became a familiar name for me because it’s the name of one of my favourite streets.

I love walking on Dr. Penfield street, winter or summer the quiet semi-private area is located between the chaos and the hills, a landscape that inspires many states depending of the season…

Yet visually stunning all year round, summer evokes adventure, autumn romance and winter solitude. I don’t mention spring because spring is not an appealing season to me.

In short, Dr. Penfield is a famous name and as a Canadian, it makes me happy to see this Google recognition for a local hero who did lots for science, but also, a man whose sole name brings great memories of the city I love the most… Montreal, my home.
