Farewell, Dai-chan: Daisuke Takahashi Retires from Competitive Figure Skating
The Constructivist household is in mourning for the retirement of Daisuke Takahashi from competitive figure skating. Ever since we found out, I've been asking the Full Metal Archivist to write something celebrating his career, but she's still dealing with the shock of the news and is just too sad to put her feelings into words. What she has told me has been poetic: "he flirted with the music, seduced audiences, and challenged judges...he was a shaman on the ice." So I'll just point you too her April 2010 "Luv Letter" for now. More on his legacy later!
