Canandian ice skater uses music from the Chrono Series in his performance
It's something that not alot of us g1's might be into, but in this particular case I found it pretty awesome and yes, this is a blog about figure skating. I don't normally watch figure skating, so I'm not sure if video game music is very common in the ice skating World but it is a first for me.
Recently there was a figure skating competition and although the ice skater below didn't win, he still did something awesome. Canadian figure skater Kevin Reynolds chose music from Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger in his performance and I found that pretty damn awesome! You can watch the video below
If he had chosen some of the slower tracks in the series it might have been better, but then again I don't know anything about figure skating.
Undercoreographed. His technique's pretty good, but the music's too busy for the moves he's doing. A simpler arrangement would've suited better. The music choice is pretty cool; I hope more skaters go that direction.
Once again, Canada has done something right.
you know when someone says "I'm not normally a fan of something" it usually means that they secretly love it
That twas amazing, making Canada Proud.
Fuck yeah, we Canadians are just like that. We do all our fancy shit with the best the world has to offer.
Apart from that fall, it was a great performance!
And he ironically falls right when the sad music starts. It's as if the track was mourning for him.
that was cool.
Too bad he feel... that's gonna hurt his score. Love the music though!
Hot damn...just...hot DAMN! :0
This is very cool and it just goes to show that game music is an actual style of music just as much as rock, pop, rap, and what not. I think sometimes people forget that. It was refreshing seeing it a competition such as this
Manly tears were shed this day *raises Flag*
I only care aboot Ice skaters with nice taters
*Raises Canadian Flag* I'll be honest here Kevin looks like someone from Final Fantasy.... and to further prove my point he uses a Squaresoft music... Coincidence? I think not. But them skating skillz are nuts... I know Patrick Chan wins all the time and he's Canadian too but god how do you judge something like that...
I SKATE TO ONE SONG, AND ONE SONG ONLY!!
Okay, that may be the coolest thing i have seen all month.
Ice skating is terrifying, as a traditional non frozen land skater i rolled over my fingers more then once luckily they were wheels not sharp metal blades.
Dat is awesome! I'm going to start skating.
