✙ SYNESTHESIA

At this very point i am very sad to see how over-excited or over-depressed can one nation´s face be. At most of the times the majority is not satisfied with achievements of their own athletes. Spitting in their faces with degrading disgust. But when…just when one of the athletes…of course their own again…get to the point of success. Now it seems that the cheering and boasting reached another level. Level of nonsense and idiocracy.

Sochi is almost over with freeskiing. There is the final Halfpipe women´s event tonight and i am going to be ´narrating´ their tricks over the national broadcast here in Ljubljana. Of course most of the people here is confused, uninformed, scorning and full of mockery to one of the rare that actually has the future, has the talent, has the young, has the industry, has the bold, has the balls to show that the sport of freeskiing does not need freaking Olympic farce to exist. I am proud to see that the world of freeskiing developed, but am far from glad that the feedback to David, Joss and Dara never came from the core. Yes, the runs were nuts, but nothing i haven´t seen before. And the core agrees. Big ups to Henrik who literally showed his ass to the judges and won the prize of the crowds, tribute to Jossi who showed the aspect of style and what a halfpipe run and what a triple sw zero. I am astonished. But glad that the thing will be over soon. I would be happy if the games finish tonight after Filip´s appearance at Skier X and hopefully another medal for Slovenia. Slovenia has won 7 medals so far and is on the second place, just behind Norwegians. Number of won medals compared to population of the country. (http://www.medalspercapita.com/).

So what am i even doing here being smart and all that? Nothing, just chillin. It´s just another nigga day.
