(This post doubles as a one-day-and-five-minutes belated Canada Day post)
There were a lot of things I was considering doing if I got this square, it applies very readily to nearly all my fandoms.
But then while I was messing around on youtube watching through everything Kurt Browning has ever done, I came across this:
Kurt: "I'm trying to skate as a figure skater in hockey skates. It's not a comedy, it's a real solo, I just want to show a different aspect of my skating. And again, after twenty years, you're always trying to reinvent yourself. And Canadians love hockey, so I hope it'll work. But it's-- I'm not relaxed. At all. Not at any second in this program am I relaxed. I've got a hat to deal with, and a tie flying around, and a jacket, and these hockey skates, with about this much [gestures, about an inch, inch] balance spot on it, and I have to remember constantly that I'm in hockey skates. If I forget for a second, I'll switch back to figure skating mode and I'll be on my ass in a split second. And I don't relax until I'm done, and even then, I gotta get off the ice."
So what we have here is an internal hyper-awareness of the fact that he's dressed in clothes that aren't his, while outwardly projecting ease and coolness. That's-- well, definitely dress-up kink, and it's incredibly hot.
The tension of trying to skate clean and perform well-- perform Sinatra and Jagger respectively-- while not letting yourself actually be
comfortable. There is some fascinating shit going on here. I could sit here and babble excitedly about this all night, but this is a picspam post so probably I should get to the pictures and such.( Two more videos and a bunch of photos behind the cut )
