    Johnny Weir - new journal entry

    Johnny has posted a new (and pretty long) journal entry, discussing how he coped with the disappointment of not making the world team, his adventures in S. Korea, Pop Star on Ice and his new programs (among other things). As always, it's a fun and informative read. Johnny is a good writer - he could definitely have a career in something meda-related after he retires.

    Thank you, I have read it with a lot of interest.

    Actually it made me think about Phil Hersh again... I wonder, how he could scold Johnny instead of, I don't know, offering some words of compassion? Must be a real *******... I'm not a fan of Johnny at all, but that was very unfair to him.

    And then it's actually no surprise that Johnny feels like at home in Korea. And "Festa on Ice" was really great. I have seen it only on video, but it was really energetic and exciting both for public and skaters.

    This is very weird.... When I click on the link I get the entry from Feb, so strange. But my friend gets the right entry when she clicks on it. What's wrong?

    I would love to see video of Johnny teaching Galina what a Lady Gaga is.

    Thanks so much for posting. I love reading his journals.
    It was surprising to read how depressed he was about Nationals....but glad he is feeling better now.

    I like reading about how the different programs cam about. So glad he said "NO" to single ladies. Sorry..i would not want to see that.

    I hadn't seen his Poker Face ex before reading his journal--it's up on youtube! All good fun, for sure.

    He is a very good writer, and I really enjoyed his journal.

    Can we be sure it is he who is writing or just giving ideas for his editor/writer?

    Joe, Johnny writes his own journals and emails them to the web site manager. He doesn't have an "editor" - if he did, his punctuation would be better.

    Don't you think he writes like how he talks? I think it's his own writing. He is very good at expressing himself in writing, and in talking.

    It's always entertaining to read his journals.

    Maybe Joe thinks Evan wrote it

    Evan's journal is definitely like Evan's talking, and it's a bit like how he skates too.

    well it would be more complicated to tell the editor what you want to say and how you want to say it and then he goes and writes something that looks like yours, rather than just write a blog once a while
    johnny speaks in interviews with same way, i dont think he has a reason to have another person to write for his journals apart from the help of the one who designs his site.
    By the way stephan's journals are also great!
