    Since we are missing further info, speculations like these are useless.

    Preparations of the Y/O- Haru 2021

    As long as there aren't flocks of owls with letters, laying siege to the heya, he has nothing to fear.

    Just listen to the full albums on YT. The older stuff is great, too, but Apex and Abyss really stand out as concept albums which tell the story of "The Immortal", who is mentioned the first time in Awakening. Sadly there aren't that many live recordings, but what's there shows, they are no band that's only good in the studio.

    Not sorry to correct you, but that "honour" goes to my post, your's was the 1000th reply ;)

    Ozeki Reranking confusion

    Hi new member, thanks for asking. Because head-to-head is irrelevant. Shodai was ranked higher on the january banzuke, that's all that counts.

    Flat Earth Society and Sumo

    Watching old videos serves the answer. Place more people closer to the dohyo, like in the olden times. For example disgraced oyakata whom you want to have an "accident" *cough*Tokitsukaze*cough*. Jokes aside, padding might at least be a first step in the right direction, i admit. But only a tiny one. There are more important issues to solve at the moment, like the coconut-situation.

    Sorry, to veer off topic, but Ouchiyama is probably the best shikona i've ever heard.

    Maybe it's a cat thing. The more time they have to brace for impact...

    Flat Earth Society and Sumo

    I'm one of those "flat earthers". Though i think comparing these two things is insulting, because the raised dohyo is not a major source of injury, but it IS factual a source of injury, whilst the flat earth theory is something for nut jobs. Wasn't there a nasty head first fall off the dohyo not that long ago?

    You have to watch "Tonight we Ride". The whole video is an idle speed, no budget version of Mad Max and you can see from their faces, they know how abysmal ridiculous they look like. The next time they're in Germany, i'll try to visit one of their shows.

    Favourites are subject to change. And there are so many, many great songs out there, it's impossible for me to say "this is the one". The last months i've been listening to Unleash the Archers a lot and the first thing to do in the office is to put on my BT headset and BLAST one of these songs. They're fun, they make me smile and they give me more energy than any coffee in the world. https://youtu.be/2yctXV3uHBs https://youtu.be/gqUPGa15Oto
