Monday morning update!! 
Video just in via Johnny:

Love. It.

Yes!! Summer touring is upon us! 
Johnny heads to Japan in less than a month for the first
Fantasy on Ice tour performances plus 
“Together on Ice” with Yuzu! Then, get ready:
the Weibocalypse of Artistry on Ice happens in July and
August. Please see Johnny’s official website for all 
his performance dates this summer!

UPDATE!! Via Johnny: “I’m coming Japan! 
Thank you to the Japanese Consulate of NY
 for being so kind and speedy!”

Dear Johnny, 
we believe in you, 
we support you, and 
we love you always.

to keep the love and light shining...

Oh hai!

Yes, I’m still here, with pics that have taken me absolutely forever to put on this page. But you have to wait just one minute longer for them (or not, because of course you can just scroll down and look at the picspam first which I know you’re already doing anyway so I’ll just be here waiting... take your time... BRB getting more coffee...) because first we have exciting news!

From Johnny’s website: He’s in an upcoming episode of Hollywood Game Night, scheduled to air Thursday, July 17! So excited for this!! Johnny and Jane Lynch trading quips on my TV. Yes please.

And also: As mentioned above, Johnny’s website has been updated with his summer tour dates. Thus far there is only ONE performance date in the US: Sun Valley, on August 16. While I wistfully hope that other opportunities to see him skate at home might appear, I highly recommend making the effort to travel to Sun Valley if you can. Seeing him skate live is dazzlingly unforgettable, and the Sun Valley experience in particular is amazing. For tickets/info, please visit the Sun Valley website.

OK! On to the pics! These are all from Johnny’s appearance at the Kentucky Oaks race two weeks ago, which is the annual prologue to the Derby. These may or may not be in some kind of order as roughly determined by what he’s wearing. Plus we have video ICYM the slightly obscure live broadcast on NBC Sports Network. Enjoy!

Another great job! I love how all these people are so happy to have their pictures taken with Johnny! Tara too, but it seems like a lot of people are happy to pose with him! I love the pictures! I wish I could get to Sun Valley, but I don't see it happening. I do have frequent flyer miles, but I can't see myself affording it. Oh well, maybe some other time!

Good to see Tara and Johnny getting some sunshine. Skating is a very indoor sport.

Thank you again for corraling all these great photos and videos.
