Now that we're in a competition, you have to think about the Russian judge sitting there listening to this song wondering, "Why did we go so emo? We were in Clair de Lune and then all of a sudden we're in this very sad musical moment."

Whether witty or wise, controversial or charming, shocking or silly, sweet or sassy, provocative or profound, inspiring or infuriating--or any combination of those--Johnny Weir, the three-time U.S. Champion, two-time Olympian, and World medalist figure skater, almost always says something worth quoting whenever he commentates a skating competition, makes a TV appearance, gives an interview, holds a press conference, writes, tweets, or is caught on video. His quotes needed to be collected and shared; hence this blog.
