Yes, Mr. Weir will now take your questions. And answer them as thoughtfully and charmingly as is humanly possible. All while looking fabulous in a veiled hat.

Mega-Gallery: 'Creep' As You've Never Seen It Before

Back in January of this year, Johnny performed his now-legendary ‘Creep’ for what was meant to be the final time, at the University of Delaware’s special US Nationals Send-Off. The video of his performance has thus far garnered more than 300K views, and has risen to fourth place on the list of most-watched Johnny YouTubes ever, just behind his 2010 US Nats short program, Poker Face, and Bad Romance.

Today we present the first photographs of Johnny’s haunting new program, ‘Heartbreak,’ which he premiered at the Skating Club of Wilmington’s Spring Ice Show. Though he was less than satisfied with his performance — particularly Friday’s, according to his lol-worthy comments about it on the podcast — I am here to confirm that the spellbound audience loved it.

#FBF Gallery: 'Creep' — The Lost Photos

So personally I have been on mega-maximum stress overdrive since oh I don’t know around January 20 of this year, with not much room in the daily schedule for anything remotely resembling relaxation since every spare moment not spent working is committed to protesting everything everywhere in every possible way . . .

Today we celebrate our annual milestone in my utter inability to at least partially recover some semblance of interest in something other than Johnny, as the enduring and much-loved blog tagline says. And we’re doing so with a huge and brightly colored splash of exclusive photos and video that showcases not only Johnny’s extraordinary gift on the ice, but also his incredibly infectious sense of fun.

Farewell to Beloved 'Creep'

So we had an amazing time at Johnny’s performance at the University of Delaware, and then we had a little travel snafu where we ended up getting home about 48 hours later than planned and going by way of New Jersey, which is not actually on the way to Chicago from Delaware but that’s another story entirely.

We begin our Sun Valley coverage with Johnny’s exquisite ‘Moonlight Sonata’ program.
