A Happy Ending and...



Note: This is the archive. 
For all the latest Johnny news, 
exclusive pics & vids, and much more,

So after five years in this space, we have come to the end of our time here. 

This site will no longer be updated, but will remain active as an archive and as a testament to Johnny’s amazing journey since his world-renowned performances (relive them again here and here) at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.

Countless Johnny fans have contacted me over the years to say, “Your tagline literally made me LOL. I so understand you. And I’m so glad I found your blog!” 

That tagline remains as true today as it was when I wrote it: 

Content exclusively devoted to all things Johnny Weir until I am able to at least partially recover some semblance of interest in something else. Don’t hold your breath.

So.... 

Please come visit the blog 
at its new home:

Yes, even more exclusive photos, exclusive videos, and all the glorious Johnnyness you’ve come to expect from this corner of the Interwebz, now with better packaging that will hopefully eliminate excruciatingly slow load times and other frustrations of this platform.

(Wait, you didn’t actually think I was done, did you? Hahaha what a silly idea. Please review tagline above. Then come join me over here!)



Johnny and Binky, 
from 2010 to now.



Thank you so much, Johnny, for an incredible five years. 
I’m so excited to see where your journey will take you next
and always so very proud to be your fan. 

with love from Binky

Yes, sadly, we have come to the end of The Snow King picspam... for now. Until, of course, the tour picks up again in St. Petersburg in less than three weeks with another ten performances. And then maybe, just MAYBE, onto other countries from there!
