Flashback Friday: Tour of Taiwan... With Bonus Russia!

Johnny greets fans back at the hotel 
after the first Artistry on Ice show in Taiwan.

The things he does for his fans...

So today we're flashing back to the first Artistry on Ice show in Taipei that was nearly three weeks ago now, although it seems like it should be even longer than that because I believe he's spent at least three months in LA since last Tuesday, but yay I think he's coming home soon, possibly today, and apparently laden with See's Candies, which really demands twitpics--not that any of his Facebook fans would ever see them due to the ongoing Cold War-style hostilities currently enveloping his social media apps for no reason at all. Although I did observe that Twitter posted this cheery "Alert!" the other day:

This week in worldwide utterly random Johnny-related news, we have a pupdate from Jersey, picspam from China, a scathing commentary on the Switzerland-based ISU, fabulous fan art from Japan, more China pics, an interview from Russia coming up, and an unearthly silence from California.

Aaaaand our ongoing embarrassment of riches from China continues with new exclusive pics plus an actualfax comprehensible translation of Johnny's interview with Sina Sports that sadly does not include the phrases, "mascara is the same as the umbrella opening and closing," or "wearing a coat of an introduction to scream," that Google Translate whimsically offered when the article first appeared and we all drove ourselves crazy trying to figure out WHAT did he SAY and WHAT does it MEAN and WHOA seriously MOROZOV? Now we know, all thanks to the wonderfully kind and generous Chinese Angels.

Kayso I realize that we've already reached 11 on the Scale of Relentless Fabulosity via the Neverending AOI Picspam, but Twitter friends assured me last night that, as always, too much Johnny is never enough, so.... here. Have some more.

He's headed home! After the final Artistry on Ice performance last night in Shanghai, Johnny's on his way back to the East Coast, scheduled to land this afternoon at oh just about 45 minutes or so before he took off from Narita today.

OK, I've completely given up on bringing any sort of order to the Weibopalooza currently happening on my computer, so today I'm just going to throw a bunch of stuff on here that is somewhat loosely related to the subject at hand in that each item contains either Johnny or something having to do with him, and each has been carefully selected as most representative of certain strict criteria best summed up by the phrase: OMG I LOVE THIS.

"Too Much Happiness in Our Hearts"

OK! We're still catching up with Taipei, but he's already been in Beijing for like two days now, so we're going to fast-forward briefly to enjoy a few moments from that leg of his trip before we backtrack again to Taipei for some really amazing fan vids and pics. Fasten your seatbelts, and please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times. Which may prove difficult if you have a bouquet to hold onto...

IDEK where to start. So many photos and stories rolling in, and more is headed our way.... So today I'm just posting what I've got so far, with much more to come. Many of our fellow fans who saw him in Taipei are still sort of awash in the experience, and need some time to collect their thoughts (and their pics and vids!). So here's a glimpse of the Taipei show, featuring exclusive new video thanks to the fabulous Zoe Cheng, the artist who created the silk painting showcased on last Thursday's blog.

A Whole Lot of Socks. (And Happiness.)

Johnny in Taipei Thursday night.
Gorgeous exclusive photo 
courtesy of Junko Mi!



Yes!! We have new picspam! Much of it from the lovely Junko Mi, who has traveled to Taipei from Japan to see tomorrow's show. Junko's photos are always beautiful, and these are no exception--and we are very lucky that they actually got here, because apparently the hotel computers and Internet access have been very veeeerrrryyyyy sloooooooooowwww.... So these come to us thanks to the incredible kindness and patience of Junko, because she knows how much Johnny's fans always want new photos. Thank you so much, Junko!!
